that's what i suspected, too.
like if he is
a pedophile then this is a prime opportunity for him and since she's been in love with him since she was so young + they're planning on getting married, he could probably convince her to go along with pretty much anything. plus as long as she claims nothing's happened (and being in the entertainment industry, admitting anything did
happen would totally ruin both of their careers) neither the authorities or her parents can do anything about it.
not that her parents seem like they're actually concerned… most people would be horrified by the prospect but i guess their daughter becoming a celebrity or the wife of a celebrity seems like a good opportunity.
plus there were supposedly leaked e-mails or whatever from the agency saying that now was a good time to 'invest' in both of them as entertainers since their names have blown up on Chinese search engines as a result of the upcoming marriage, so hopefully it is just a publicity stunt. I can't imagine they have anything in common. a 12-year-old girl is nowhere near being able to understand or intellectually stimulate a 24-year-old man, their relationship probably just consists of her being like 'wow you're so mature and intelligent teehee' and him calling her 'adorable' over and over again.
