Leader of the Taiwanese band 5566 Tony Sun was said to have turned down an opportunity to guest-star in the Taiwanese drama In The Family, where his ex-wife, Angel Han happened to be playing one of the leads. 

The producers of the drama had initially reached out to Tony and asked if he would like to appear in a special episode. His manager then said that they would consider it if the timing and role were suitable.

However, Tony eventually turned down the offer and cited a clash in schedule as the main issue, and insisted that it had nothing to do with the fact that he had to work with his ex-wife.

“I have outdoor filming and I will be busy managing the ‘Lamigirls’ at that time so I have to reject this opportunity. I am really unable to make it and it has nothing to do with Angel at all, I am not purposely avoiding her,” Tony said.

The couple unexpectedly announced their divorce in 2015 after four years of marriage, and are no longer in contact with each other after the split.

Tony remained adamant on not getting remarried anytime soon as he said that his mother was not pushing him to have grandchildren and respected his choices as she understood that they were “living separate lives.”
