He has featured in several films and television series in China including a web drama Medical Examiner Dr. Qin. which attracted more than 1.5billion views online.

Singer and actor Tang Yixin, 29, has played the lead role in a number of top-rated Chinese TV drama series.

According to Irish businessman Paddy Cosgrave, who has been in China this week, the couple’s nuptials has been headline news.

“One of the biggest stories in China today is that two of China’s most famous movie stars are getting married in Ireland in Adare Manor. They both have nearly 20 million followers on Weibo which is sort of China’s Twitter,” wrote the CEO of Web Summit on social media.

Details of the wedding ceremony have been kept under wraps and it’s not known how long the couple will remain in Ireland.
