The best relationships start off from being friends first.
After being good friends for 10 years, popular Taiwanese actress, Ruby Lin (林心如), and actor, Wallace Huo (霍建华), have confirmed their romantic relationship on 20th May! The two met on the set of “Sound Of Colours” (地下铁) in 2006 and were reunited onscreen for “The Glamorous Imperial Concubine” (倾世皇妃) in 2011.
20th May is also known as “Love Confession Day” in China as the numbers 5, 2, and 0 have a similar sound to “I Love You” in Mandarin if spoken aloud. Therefore, the television stars decided to announce their dating news to their fans on Friday.
In the 40-year-old actress’ Facebook post, she wrote, “It turns out happiness was this close by! Thanks everyone for your blessings. I’m doing great”.
According to Jayne Stars, the couple have been dating for 4 months. “Both of them were always good friends. They started dating after Ruby’s birthday (in January). Thanks everyone for your concern,” commented Lin’s manager.
When asked if the couple has any plans for marriage, the actress said that it’s still too early to think about marriage. Although she is already 40 years old, it seems like marriage may not be a priority for her at the moment.
Prior to her relationship announcement with Huo, she mentioned that she might not get married at all.
“Since I was in my twenties, I have never thought about marriage. I’m pretty sure that I won’t get married. 2 people being together doesn’t require a marriage certificate, as things may change at any time. Love requires keeping things fresh, how you maintain a relationship is more important than marriage,” said Lin in a recent interview.
We are so glad that decade-long friends decided to date!
Congratulations to the happy couple 🙂
