Here are some of my favorite excerpts from his GQ interview:

“What I’m most afraid of, is that my life will be totally consumed by work, afraid that I will continue to exist but not know my reason to live. So that’s why right now, I have an increasing desire to regain what I felt when I started out at the beginning, the feeling of playing basketball with friends, gaming together, traveling together."

"These young children knew who Kris Wu was, thus making the shooting process harder, and more complicated – While waiting, the kids lined up in a row, standing at the viewing section on the second floor, shouting clearly in their childlike voices, totally not shy in the slightest, to Kris Wu who was in the court. “Kris Wu, throw your ball up here!”
While the lighting was being fixed, the children all “clung” onto him, some grabbing his ears, holding onto his clothes. Like a parent, Kris Wu constantly kept on a coddling smile, and during the break, wore loose fitting trousers and played basketball with the little boys."

“What do you think of fans leaving you?”

“It’s a fast food era now, even more so for the entertainment industry. Today you like someone, tomorrow you’ll like another person, this is really common. Especially when the person you like is someone very far away, actually you have a protective layer, and you are in control of this situation. There will always be fans who leave, and there will also always be regular people who turn into fans. People are constantly changing in various degrees, and I will never be able to suit everyone."

"Then will you be afraid that there will be a day when you are not popular anymore?” The question was posed suddenly.

“Why should I be afraid that there will be a day when I am no longer popular?” The reply came equally fast.

In his eyes, in his own life, he has already once experienced missing the peak of his basketball career, which he regards as his highest achievement personally. “Upon losing something, there is nothing more to it but two emotions. "I previously had it, how could I have lost it”, or, “It’s gone, this is very normal”… I would be willing to choose to be the latter.“

"10 years later, I would be 36 years old. My fans would also be 10 years older than they are now, and would  get married and settle down, have children. At that time – Would they even do the things they do now? Perhaps, the answer may be no. Therefore, even if one day I am no longer popular, I will still be living, and will be living for myself.”


YOHO! Girl

Luhan is one of the BOF 500 along with several international celebrities!
You can read his biography on the BOF website here.

An excerpt:

Lu Han is one of China’s most promising stars in the eyes of international brands. With 22 million followers on Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter, his social media influence is undeniable. Every single post on Lu’s Weibo feed receives over 200,000 reposts and comments and over a million “likes”. A former member of the popular South Korean boy band EXO-M, Lu landed the cover of the first issue of Vogue Me, a sister publication of Vogue China, targeting a younger generation. Lu “with his personality and unique point of view, is an authentic post-nineties generation representative,” says the title’s editor-in-chief Angelica Cheung .
Over the past 12 months alone, he has covered a string of fashion glossies including GQ China, Harper’s Bazaar China, Elle China, Marie Claire China and Vogue Me. Major fashion and beauty brands have been eager to harness the young star’s influence. He has appeared in campaigns for Cartier, Balmain, Gap, L’Oreal and Lancome. Lu and Angelica Cheung co-hosted a dinner for Olivier Rousteing earlier this year during the Balmain creative director’s visit to China.
Lu’s first solo album Reloaded, released last year with remarkable sales that went  IFPI-certificated Platinum, the very first in mainland China. A cast member on multiple domestic reality shows, Lu has been involved in movie-making, too, including The Great Wall directed by the renowned Zhang Yimou and starring Matt Damon and Willem Dafoe.
