Wang Yibo — actor, motorcycle driver, and all-around heartthrob — caused an unintentional stir on social media this week.
The Untamed superstar posted a picture on Oasis and Weibo of a CHANEL No.5 perfume bottle on February 3. In the aesthetic picture, he is seen wearing two rings, and upon intense scrutinization, eagle-eyed fans made out the blurred reflection of a woman in the ring.

Speculation about the mystery woman spread quickly, as China’s infamous human flesh search engine worked to crack her identity. Wang Yibo’s team had no choice but to issue an official statement.
“The picture shared by Mr. Wang Yibo on Oasis and Weibo simultaneously today was taken by a staff member at a routine work site,” the post read. It went on to clarify that “the reflection shown in the ring is also of a staff member at the event.”

Wang’s team also pleaded with netizens to “respect facts, not distort the truth, and not over-interpret it.”
This isn’t the first time that Wang’s fans have brought him trouble. Last year, the star’s team had to issue a statement after fans installed trackers on one of the actor’s cars.
Wang’s team stepped in again when fans mass-rated his work with five stars across Douban, and is pressing charges against a “woman with a history of mental illness” who filed a false police report against the actor.
