After Taiwanese actress-model Shu Qi posted a rare selfie with her rumoured beau, Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Fung earlier this month, speculations about the duo’s relationship has heated up once again.
Many are now hoping for Shu Qi to take a leaf out of her good friend, Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin’s books, after the actress had revealed her own relationship with her good friend, Taiwanese actor Wallace Huo.
However, Shu Qi and Stephen have refuted the rumours of their romantic relationship, and stood by their original explanation that they met up to discuss work-related matters.
Recently, Stephen’s good friend, Hong Kong actor-director Daniel Wu was spotted at a film festival in Shanghai, China, where he denied knowing anything about Stephen’s rumours with Shu Qi, though he did jokingly remark that “[Stephen] still doesn’t have a girlfriend at this age, I hope for him to quickly earn some money, get a girlfriend and settle down.”
Similarly, Shu Qi’s good friend, Taiwanese singer-actor Richie Ren remain tight-lipped when asked about her relationship status, though he did remark that “whatever you’ve seen, I’ve seen too, [but] what you’ve never seen, I’ve seen as well,” when asked if he had seen Shu Qi’s picture with Stephen.
When pressed further about the issue, however, Richie relented, and seemed to implicitly confirm their relationship by saying, “So sweet, [but] let them progress naturally and advance on their own. [I] wish them well.”
