Yang Mi is one of the top Chinese actresses whose dramas consistently attract high ratings, and her lineup of handsome leading men is also fast expanding. Which actor actually married the popular actress in real life? Which leading man is your favorite? Let's start the roundup!

Yang Mi debuted in acting when she was still a child. She later rebooted in acting during her high-school years, and her portfolio of dramatic work is quite large, which means she has quite an enviable roster of handsome leading men. I will focus on the most well known, and you can add your favorite ones in the comments.

1. Feng Shao Feng in Palace

She and the handsome actor from Prince of Lan Ling starred in several productions, beginning with their popular time-travel romantic drama Palace from 2011, where Feng Shao Feng played a royal prince. They were rumored to be dating, but Yang Mi eventually married another one of her leading men.

2. Hu Ge in Chinese Paladin 3

The charismatic actor who has risen to become one of China's most acclaimed leading men, particular with Nirvana in Fire, was rumored to be romancing Yang Mi after they co-starred in Chinese Paladin 3, a martial arts fantasy series adapted from a video game in 2008. Alas, according to tabloid news, their romance was short-lived because it ran into opposition from Hu Ge's mother.

3. Harwick Lau in Ru Yi

Yang Mi and Hong Kong singer-actor Hawick Lau reportedly fell in love after playing star-crossed lovers in Ru Yi, a period drama set in the early years of the Chinese Republic. They acknowledged their dating relationship and continued to co-star in the drama A Clear Summer's Night and the movie Holding Love, before getting married in 2014. They now have a four-year-old daughter nicknamed Xiao Nuo Mi (Little Rice Ball).

The married stars have continued to film romances, but not together. Will fans ever see them together on screen again?

4. Huang Xuan in Les Interprètes

Huang Xuan (Tribes and Empires) played an expert interpreter who mentored Yang Mi's character. The two interpreters didn't see eye to eye in the beginning, but eventually succumbed to the spell cast by the language of love.

In 2016, the handsome leading man lamented that he was too busy to date and that his recent leading ladies were all married. He was also appointed by Switzerland, where Les Interprètes filmed on location, as its tourism ambassador to promote Swiss tourism to Chinese travelers. Maybe he should embark on a grand trip to search for true love?

5. Mark Chao in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms

The eternal love between Yang Mi and Mark Chao's immortal characters, lasting through three lives and three worlds in the fantasy romance, is so heart-wrenching and highly addicting that fans have repeatedly re-watched the enthralling drama. (Coincidentally, Yang Mi's character Bai Qian has a son named Little Rice Ball, the same as that of her real-life daughter.)

Mark Chao's devoted Crown Prince Yehua touched so many romantic hearts that he has been considered Yan Mi's "the best leading man." That is, until Ethan Ruan showed up. Read on!

6. Huang Zitao (Tao) in The Negotiator

The modern romance between two negotiators is cute, especially with the very likable singer-actor playing the aloof leading man who melted under Yang Mi's aura. But, (in my sincere opinion,) he can't compared to Mark Chao and Ethan Ruan in long hair and gorgeous costumes.

7. Ethan Ruan in Legend of Fuyao

With the success of fantasy romantic drama Legend of Fuyao, Ethan Ruan has captured many a fluttering heart to become one of the most admired leading men for Yang Mi.

Upon seeing Ethan as the witty and flirty Crown Prince Wuji who couldn't resist falling for Fuyao (Yang Mi), fans who had been in love with Mark Chao's Crown Prince Ye Hua from Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms suddenly faced a difficult choice.

Which crown prince would you keep by your side as your constant companion and soulmate?

A martial arts master has been given a deadly mission. Getting caught between two rival princes complicates things. Watch how Fuyao rises from a lowly servant girl to win the true heart of a witty and flirty crown prince.
