Meanwhile, other fans made assumptions that his good news must be related to getting married or having children.

Another fan expressed their deep disappointment as a long-time and devoted fan of Lai Guanlin.

Are you awake? How can you do this to us? How can you do this to yourself? I’m the same age as you. I’ve liked you from high school to university. You’ve always been the light in my life.
