    Just to let you know that Lu is Luhan’s surname. And Han is his ‘name’ how do I explain this. Erm.. Chinese people’s name can be a two word name so yeah. His surname is not xi but Lu, just saying.^^

        Xi is Luhan’s surname. Lu and Han together forms his first name. I’m Chinese American but I also have a chinese name and it’s in the same format, surname before first name.

    I think 178 cm is 5’10, but still, nice profile. And 73 kg is 161 pounds

  • Seriously?

    Luhan is 73kg? He isn’t… I think he’s more like 63kg! Or even 52kg – he’s super skinny!!
