Taiwanese actor Wang Ta Lu, 29, has denied taking advantage of Chinese actress Li Qin, 30, after netizens criticised him for getting handsy with her during a skit on Chinese variety show Happy Camp.
The pair, who co-starred in 2020 period drama The Wolf, recently appeared on Happy Camp to promote the series.
During the show, they were asked to act out a scenario that called for Ta Lu to show how he would "make a girl feel protected when they are queuing to buy bubble tea".
On hearing this, Ta Lu immediately hugged Li Qin from the back and caressed her hands. He then pulled open his jacket so he could wrap her in a tight embrace.
What he did was goosebump-inducing to say the least, and while Ta Lu looked totally at ease, awkwardness was written all over Li Qin’s face.
