Among various ways of celebrating the New Year, watching the star-studded New Year's Eve galas held by different television stations across China remains a popular choice among the young. While Chinese Canadian singer Kris Wu dazzled the audiences with a series of performances at Hunan Television's New Year's Eve Gala, fans' attention seemed to be captured by a close-up shot of the star's neck. 

Was the shadowy red mark on the heartthrob's neck a hickey? Before rumors and speculations overwhelmed online discussions, shortly after the performance, his studio posted a photo of the star showing his neck without any mark on China's Twitter-like Sina Weibo. "Not sure whether that was mosquito bite or allergy," captioned the post.
