By2’s Yumi and billionaire heir Mario Ho were recently spotted walking down the streets of Beijing while holding hands. The on-off couple was allegedly looking for a marital home, sparking rumours of a flash marriage.
On Tuesday, Yumi published an ambiguous post which fuelled the speculations. She wrote: “The brightest smile hides the deepest secret.”
According to media reports, Yumi, who came from a poor family background, left school at 16 to pursue a showbiz career with her twin sister Miko. On the other hand, Mario is the son of Hong Kong business magnate Stanley Ho and is currently studying at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Having won awards at international Mathematics quizzes previously, the 20-year-old is also known as a “Math genius”.
Due to Yumi and Mario’s hugely different backgrounds, many people did not believe that the relationship would last. When asked on her son’s wedding plans, Mario’s mother Angela Leong was quick to shoot down the rumours. “He did go to Beijing a few days ago. He hasn’t even completed his studies. Do you think he will get married? Don’t frighten me,” she said.
