We all know how fairy tales end; with a “happily ever after”. We’re encouraged from young to believe that love should last forever. Yet, as we grow older, we learn that relationships are so much more than a simple declaration. Sometimes, just promising ‘forever’ is never enough.
Many fans thought Grace Chow (周揚青) and Show Luo (羅志祥) had the perfect love story. However, in 2020, Chow broke off their 9-year relationship and exposed Luo for all his cheating ways. While die-hard fans suspected the two might reunite sometime soon, Chow shut down all rumours yesterday (20th April).
Chow and Luo broke up when she accused him of having orgies and one-night stands. Since then, Chow has been enjoying her single life to the fullest. Luo on the other hand, lost out on millions of dollars in the past year. He recently started his own YouTube channel. In February, fans suspected the two were getting back together, claiming they found two pieces of ‘evidence’.
The first piece of ‘evidence’ was when Chow chose a pig as her stuffed toy during the variety programme “FOURTRY”. Fans drew the connection as Luo’s Chinese nickname literally translates to ‘little pig’. The second was when the duo posted similar messages on their social media. Chow wrote “I hope I won’t regret the decision that I made today,” while Luo said, “(I) should work hard at something that I’ve decided to do.” Some fans were quick to assume the two were getting together while others were of the opinion they might have been talking about different topics.
Yesterday (20th April), Chow posted something on her private Weibo account, which indirectly responded to the rumours. “Good morning!” she wrote. “My friend said this song suits me very much, especially the second verse. Understand?” The caption was accompanied by a picture of Saweetie’s “Best Friend” (feat. Doja Cat) lyrics. The verse she was referring to read “Got her own money, she don’t need no (man).”
Hopeful fans commented on the photo, wanting clarification on matters. One fan asked if she was indirectly responding to some untrue rumours. “It’s (a) direct (response),” she said. Another fan asked if she was referring to the line about having her own money, but Chow stated, “It’s not that line, it’s the next line.”
While some fans may be heartbroken over the confirmation, others on Weibo were cheering Chow on. Chow herself has no regrets, as she once said sometime after the breakup, “I don’t think women need to rush to find a partner. Work on making yourself stronger and better first. Mr. Right will come to you one day.”
Grace Chow is a lady who knows what she wants, and even better, knows what she deserves. As a Weibo user commented, “(Grace Chow) really slays!”
