Wedding bells rang for famous Korean stars Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin yesterday (31st March), much to everyone’s delight. However, as it turns out, another couple also tied the knot yesterday!
Taiwanese actress Joe Chen (陈乔恩, Chen Chiao-en) has been seeing Johor-born beau, artist Alan Chen (曾伟昌) for over two years. Yesterday, the duo officially sealed the deal by registering their marriage in Taipei.
The 43-year-old actress met 9-years-younger Alan during a reality dating programme “Meeting Mr. Right 2 ( 女儿们的恋爱 2)” in 2019. Alan later moved to Taiwan to be with Joe after the duo went public with their relationship. Currently, he’s doing art exhibitions there while seeing Joe. The two finally decided to tie the knot after two years of being with each other.
Their registration had been a quiet, personal affair. The couple dressed nicely but kept it simple. Joe had supposedly worn a purple knitted jacket paired with a white skirt while Alan wore a suit. Other than the couple, only their loved ones were in attendance. Joe had supposedly taken a few photos after the registration and happily announced the news with a short video stating: “I’m married!”
Joe’s agent confirmed that they had indeed gotten married that morning. “The relationship between the two is stable and everyone is very blessed,” they reportedly said. Additionally, they denied rumours of Joe being pregnant.
The couple later released their own announcement on their socials. Both posted a simple photo of their hands with matching rings. They had the same message, just directed to each other. In English, they wrote: “An important milestone for us. Today marks the end of March and beginning of our wonderful journey, together. May each day bring us our hearts closer. Love you forever.”
Their message in Chinese read: “(It’s) simple, but meaningful. With you by my side, I know happiness. Thank you for your blessings!” Friends and fans were quick to leave congratulatory messages in the comments as they celebrated the happy day with the couple.
Congrats to Joe and Alan! May their marriage be peaceful and blessed.
