Last Saturday (Sep 3) Stephen Fung and Shu Qi surprised everyone and announced that they have tied the knot secretly, with the pair sharing that they’ve been dating for four years prior to the sudden announcement.
Yesterday (Sep 4), he updated his Weibo for the first time after the wedding news and eagle-eyed netizens spotted his wedding band in the accompanying picture. His caption read simply, “Thank you to the media and everyone else for your well-wishes. We’re currently in the forest filming (The Adventurers). Thank you all so much!”
The cast and crew only knew about the wedding the day before and producer Terence Chang commented, “They were really secretive about it and hid it from everyone. None of us suspected anything before it happened. We’re filming every single day and they had the time to get married – we only took a one-day break when it all happened.”
Actor Daniel Wu, who worked with Stephen on 1998 film Beauty, posted on his Weibo, “Congrats to one of my best friends Stephen Fung on the announcement of his marri(age).” Karen Mok, who dated Stephen for nine years, also posted her congratulations, “You were destined to be lovebirds; I wish everyone in love to be able to get married.”
Stephen and Shu Qi have known each other for over two decades, and Stephen once remarked, “I’ll drink with her whenever she’s unhappy and make sure I send her home safely after she’s drunk.”
