Taiwanese actor Sunny Wang and rumoured girlfriend Zhang Li spent Mid-Autumn Festival together in Taiwan and were said to be meeting his parents although he denied it.
The on-screen couple of Perhaps Love, the Chinese version of Korean variety show We Got Married, spent a day at a beach in Yilan together and are believed to be developing feelings for each other.
Sunny revealed that he admires her character, 'She is competitive and independent, bubbly yet direct and knows what she wants, so she works hard for it and is a perfectionist.'
The 31-year-old, who said he has marriage in mind, had introduced Zhang Li to his father when the crew of Perhaps Love filmed in Taiwan in June, who in turn thanked her for helping Sunny grow and mature.
Sunny added through his manager that 'his friends and grandparents will like (Zhang Li too)'.
His ex-girlfriend, Elva Hsiao, who is currently said to be in a relationship with Elroy Cheo, also gave her well-wishes.
The actor is reportedly displeased that media attention has been diverted to his drama co-star Niki Chow
Popular Chinese drama The Virtuous Queen of Han held a celebratory dinner last Tuesday, where lead actress Niki Chow and boyfriend, Chinese actor Jeremy Tsui made a joint-appearance. Lead actor Raymond Lam, however, was missing from the party, even though he was supposed to be in the list of attendees.
While both the director and producer said that they would need to 'find out' the reason for Raymond's unexplained absence, the crew claimed that it was the first time the actor failed to turn up for an event without prior notification.
'We only found out that he's not coming slightly before the reporters. He had promised to make it if his schedule allows, even saying that he would stay till the end of the event,' a member of the staff added.
According to Hong Kong media, Raymond and Niki are currently on bad terms, after vying to perform the drama's theme song previously.
Although it was initially stated that Raymond's 'Behind the Glory' will be used as the theme song, the production team reportedly wanted to change it to 'With You, Our Love is Perfect', a duet by Niki and Richie Jen. This was mainly due to the actress' skyrocketing popularity as well as Raymond's departure from TVB.
Displeased to have the limelight taken away from him, Raymond allegedly threatened to boycott all promotional activities, if his track was not chosen as the theme song.
The singer-actor may have gotten his wish in the end, but media attention remained on Niki and Jeremy, after The Virtuous Queen of Han became dubbed as the couple's 'token of love' ' which is believed to be the reason for his absence at the celebratory party.
Five months after Taiwanese band Sodagreen's drummer Wei (Shi Jun Wei) proposed to his girlfriend Sunny at a concert, the couple threw an engagement party yesterday and will hold a church wedding at the end of the month.
Wei, third member of Sodagreen to tie the knot, had secretly planned and executed his proposal during the band's Hong Kong concert in April. The drummer shocked everyone, including his bandmates and boss, when he abruptly invited Sunny onstage and went on bended knee to ask for her hand.
Lead singer Greeny Wu, better known as Qing Feng, was reportedly so surprised that he exclaimed: 'How can you not tell us!'
In July, Wei posted photos from their wedding photoshoot and left a sweet message for his wife-to-be. 'What more can a man ask for, when he has a wife like you,' he wrote.
The Taiwanese actor brought rumoured girlfriend Zhang Li to Taiwan and spent the festival together
Taiwanese actor Sunny Wang and Chinese actress Zhang Li have reportedly been dating for more than half a year after filming Perhaps Love, the Chinese version of Korean reality show We Got Married.
The on-screen couple were said to have developed real feelings for each other after the show, often bickering on Weibo and even spending time together in private.
Although they have already stopped filming Perhaps Love, the two still kept in touch and Zhang Li even followed Sunny on a recent Hong Kong trip where they were spotted shopping and dining together.
On Sunday, both of them then travelled from Hong Kong to Taiwan and spent Mid-Autumn Festival together. However, Sunny clarified she was there to settle her personal matters and took the opportunity to explore Taiwan, not to meet his parents as 'they are overseas'.
In addition, Zhang Li revealed in a recent interview, 'My mum likes Sunny's shy personality. Sometimes I cannot even differentiate if I'm really in love or it's just for show.'
Sunny, who admitted through his manager that he and Zhang Li have good impressions of each other, also shared, 'I feel comfortable around Zhang Li. The more I know her, the more I like her.'
In another interview with a magazine, the 31-year-old said, 'I am already past the age to have fun. It's time to find someone to love and settle down.'
The Taiwanese singer's rumoured beau wore the same shirt which she had previously worn
Following rumours of Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao and rumoured beau Elroy Cheo semi-cohabitating, new word has been going around that Elroy recently spent the night at her place when he was spotted by sharp-eyed fans wearing the same shirt that Elva had previously worn.
Last Friday, the two attended the opening of Playhouse restaurant which Elva's manager had invested in. Elroy wore a Givenchy T-shirt to the event and Elva had the exact same piece too.
Netizens speculated, 'He must have spent the night at her house and had no (presentable) clothes to wear in the morning, so he wore hers.'
Elva's manager refuted the rumours, then clarified that she had bought the shirt a year ago and Elroy, being a fashionista, must have bought himself one too.

The singer's three-month baby bump was seen in recent photos taken at a celebration party
Celebrity couple Blackie Chen and Christine Fan announced last month that they are expecting twins after their three-year marriage. They held a barbeque party recently to celebrate the good news, as well as Mid-Autumn Festival and American rapper Miss Ko's birthday (Sept 5).
Apple from Taiwanese girl group Hey Girl, actress Kuo Shu-yau and her sister as well as many others were also at the party.
Thereafter, Blackie uploaded several group photos which showed Christine's slight baby bump and her radiant smile.
As the mum-to-be was spotted with sweet corn in her hands in every photo, netizens teased, 'We know you're pregnant but can you please put the corn down when taking a picture?'
Chinese actress Tang Wei, who wedded in Sweden in July, was in Venice for the recent 71st International Film Festival 2014 to promote her latest work The Golden Era together with director Ann Hui and Chinese co-star Feng Shaofeng.
However, Tang Wei was reportedly late for her 1 p.m. interview session by 40 minutes and was disrupted halfway through the agreed 30-minute session by a Chinese lady.
She expressed her apologies to the media, then led Tang Wei and Shaofeng away.
When the person-in-charge of arranging the interview, an Italian, asked the Chinese lady why the sudden departure, she responded rudely, 'I can just return you the 15 minutes (of interview) later, can't I?'
That infuriated the Italian, who then started arguing with her and promised never to arrange future interviews for them, even calling them 'jerks'.
