TAIPEI — Taiwanese actress Ivy Shao opened up about her relationship with actor Chris Wu in an interview with United Daily News (UDN) on Wednesday (Nov 11), responding to dating rumours which surfaced earlier this month.
The 31-year-old told the Chinese-language media that she is seeing Chris, 37.
She explained that they first met in 2017 on the set of My Gift. That same year, they also worked on the romantic series The Perfect Match in which they played a young couple.
This is the first time she's opened up about her relationship since her debut 10 years ago, she said, adding that she hopes the relationship will be positive and healthy.
Chris was spotted leaving the National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall with Ivy on Nov 5.
In the photos captured by local media, he shielded her from the rain with a jacket, showing his love and thoughtfulness.
After rumours of their relationship broke, he posted a photo of the performance ticket on Nov 6.
In his Facebook post, he wrote: ”The picture was shot by a fan and I happened to be in it (great angle). I had a date with a girl yesterday and we watched a great show.”
He also revealed that he was followed by paparazzi as he went back home. “You guys are obvious, but we enjoyed a walk after getting out of the taxi,” he wrote, adding: “I’m not opposed to being stalked; after all, that’s your job.”
