Hawick Lau and Ying'er win "Best Onscreen Couple" from Youku

Youku, one of China's largest streaming sites, just hosted their annual TV Series Award Ceremony in Beijing. Hawick Lau attended the star-studded ceremony with Ying'er to receive their "Best Onscreen Couple" award with the highest statistics for their roles as Mo Shaoqian and Tong Xue in Sealed with a Kiss. Other winners included Wallace Huo, Hu Ge, Ruby Lin, Liu Shishi, Ariel Lin, Tong Liya, Peter Ho, Wallace Chung and etc.
As you can see from the photos, Hawick had to wear a hat for the event and a wig earlier in the day to cover his bald head. LOL. He shaved off his hair to shoot two upcoming Qing Dynasty dramas. The first is another Yu Zheng's production, Beauties Without Tear, where he will play one of the Qing Dynasty founders, Huang Taiji, and the second is another adaptation of Fei Wo Si Cun's novels, Night of Spring, where he will act as Emperor Kangxi. I'm actually looking forward to Night of Spring since the screenwriter who adapted Sealed with a Kiss is also writing the script for this series. And the story sounds interesting too since it focuses on the low-born 8th PrinceYinsi's birth mother, Consort Liang. Yuan Hong from Bu Bu Jing Xin and Tong Liya from Gong will also join the Night of Spring cast and form a heart-wrenching love triangle with Hawick.
Ying'er and Hawick Lau also performed onstage, singing a song. Unfortunately, it was not a theme song from Sealed with a Kiss, but another love song. I'm not going to directly comment on their singing skills. Let's just say I prefer that actors/actresses who have no professional training in singing should just focus on their acting careers and not expand into music.
