Yet another Mandopop heartthrob goes off the market.
Best known for his role in “Meteor Garden” (aka the Taiwanese version of “Boys Over Flowers”), Mandopop idol group F4 member Vic Chou aka Zaizai has reportedly tied the knot with his actress girlfriend Reen Yu.
Chou himself made the announcement through 2 photos of him and his new bride on his official Weibo account on Tuesday (10th November). The photo came with a sweet caption: “Mrs Chou is really beautiful! Yes, we are married. Thank you for all the blessings!”
Yu made a similar announcement on her Facebook, sharing a picture of them holding up their wedding rings. “Thank you for being by my side. Thank you everyone,” she wrote in the caption.
According to The Straits Times, citing Hong Kong media outlet Apple Daily, the proposal is believed to have taken place last month during Yu’s birthday. At the time, she wrote on her social media accounts: “Very happy, very happy today!”
Yu’s manager told entertainment website On.cc that the proposal happened naturally. He said:
Reen Yu revealed that a while back, while eating at home, Zaizai suddenly asked her to marry him. She happily agreed. It was just that they were free today, so they went to register.
He added that the couple has no plans to hold a wedding reception at the moment.
The marriage announcement apparently caught Chou’s agent off guard as she had to call him from Paris to confirm the news. He was quoted as saying: “It is all being arranged and planned, it’s up to our parents, I’m unclear about the timing.”
Both agents denied that Yu was pregnant.
Chou, 34, and Vic, 28, met on the set of the 2009 Taiwanese crime drama, “Black & White”. In the series, he starred as a playboy detective while she played a waitress his character was indebted to.
It is unclear when they first started dating, but their relationship came to light after Chou was spotted hugging Yu from behind on his balcony on New Year’s Eve 2012.
Chou’s former girlfriends include the late actress Hsu Wei-lun and his former “Meteor Garden” co-star Barbie Hsu.
Regarding Vic’s marriage announcement, Barbie congratulated Chou by stating: “May they have a son soon! I’m very happy for Zai.” Vic’s fellow group member Jerry Yan also said through his agent: “I am happy for them.”
Vic is the 2nd F4 member to get married. His fellow group member Vanness Wu married Singapore socialite Arissa Cheo in 2013.
