There’s plenty of good looking people in the world and we can’t deny that Malaysian-born actor Hero Tai (戴祖雄) is one of them. He’s easy on the eyes with an envious physique and a pleasant personality. In other words, what’s not to like? He’d be a great catch for any woman.
Unfortunately for his fans, Hero is now officially off the market for good. For those not in the know, previously, there were rumours of Hero dating Ukrainian model Tatiana Marchyshyna (林佳娜). However, both Hero and Tatiana confirmed their relationship yesterday (15th August) and explained why they’d kept it secret for so long.
Both Hero and Tatiana have been keeping their love life under wraps. Still, many have suspected them of being together, especially after the duo coincidently visited Malaysia around the same time. Yet, neither one has confirmed or denied the relationship. At least until now. The duo finally released a video talking about their relationship yesterday, claiming they have been together for about a year.
The reason why the couple have finally chose to reveal themselves is mainly because they feel their relationship is stable enough. Hero’s biggest worry was that the relationship would merely be for show. He explained that some girls have tried to date him for the hype, hence his reluctance to make his relationships public. However, it was not so with Tatiana.
Tatiana and Hero had initially met via the show “WTO Sisterhood”. Tatiana had been immediately attracted to him, but made no moves as she was seeing someone at the time. Later, after meeting on the show again, they started talking and hanging out with each other more. The duo soon became friends with benefits, but as time went on, they started including each other into their lives.
Hero’s first thought that he might love Tatiana was after they spent their first night together. “She was very soft and comfortable to hold,” Hero shared while cuddling Tatiana on camera. For Tatiana, her feelings came naturally and gradually. She attributed it to the fact that their relationship wasn’t “set up” so they could be themselves around each other. It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows however.
According to Tatiana, Hero had once tried to “end” their relationship. But, the actor was quick to protest. He claimed that as Tatiana couldn’t be with him for Christmas and Chinese New Year, he thought he should find a “real” girlfriend. However, after rumours of them dating got out, Hero decided to bite the bullet and ask Tatiana out officially.
Well, congrats to the happy couple! It certainly sounded like quite the journey, from being acquaintances to friends with benefits before finally falling in love. We wish them well as they continue exploring life together and perhaps, there may be wedding bells in the future too! He’ll need to put a ring on that finger first though.
