Hong Kong artist Paul Chun Pui (秦沛) is a veteran actor, well known among his peers in the entertainment circle. However, this time, the spotlight is falling on his son, Benji Chiang (姜文杰)!
Benji recently announced some good news on his socials, pleasing his family, friends and fans. After 8 years of dating the love of his life, actress Rain Lee, the young actor has finally tied the knot with her.
Benji and Rain purposely decided to release the news on 22 February 2022, exactly at 2:22pm. It’s not a coincidence, obviously. Benji explained that the number two was special to them. After all, they fell in love when Rain was 22 and Benji was 32. “Fate arranged for us to meet during filming, so the precious moment of that night will always be recorded in one piece,” he wrote in his post.
Benji admitted that he wasn’t exactly a romantic boyfriend. They’ve not had many romantic dinners, and he recounted that he doesn’t often give gifts or write love letters. However, they’ve stuck with each other through the years and continued to support each other. “I believe that in a beautiful marriage, the happiest thing is to face all the joys, and sorrows of life with my best friend every day,” Benji said. “I’m happy because I’m your best friend.”
Rain also penned a love letter to Benji on her socials in light of their marriage. She shared that they had met at work and that they had hit off instantly. “No matter in terms of opinions or habits, I always coincided with you,” she said fondly. “So many years have passed, and we still love each other.”
She thanked him for the eight years they had spent together, saying it had helped broaden her horizons. “I have experienced ups and downs with you. I have tasted everything and you have accompanied me through the highs and lows of life,” Rain wrote. “The only thing that remains unchanged is the heart that loves you.”
Marriage may bring her joy, but the actress still know they will face more challenges in the days to come. However, she hopes to overcome each challenge together with him. “You have continued to be my good friend and good comrade in arms,” Rain told Benji. “May our love last forever and (may we) grow old together for the rest of our lives.”
According to Benji, the proposal was a simple one. The question had apparently been popped in their living room. Additionally, the couple had opted to skip the wine ritual due to Covid concerns. Their marriage ceremony was done with their fathers as witnesses. Benji described it as “simple, solemn but still full of love“.
Congratulations to Benji and Rain! We wish this couple well as they start their new married life together.
