After Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) went public in dating Korean boyfriend Kwon last November, the couple has been spotted on many dates together. Gillian even announced that she will learn Korean in order to close the cultural gap between them. It came as a surprise that Gillian and Kwon may have already broken up after merely dating for less than a year.
A Long Distance Relationship
In November, Gillian was potted on a movie date with Kwon, after which she admitted she had been dating for three months. She had met Kwon, who works in the film production industry, through a mutual friend. Despite the different nationalities, they used English to communicate with each other. Shortly after their relationship went public, Gillian went to Korea to meet Kwon’s parents. A month later, the couple vacationed in Beijing before heading to Korea again to spend their Christmas. Even as recent as February this year, both put aside their work and secretly flew to Ho Chi Minh City where they celebrated their first Valentine’s Day together.
On Gillian’s 31st birthday in January, Kwon had specially flown to Hong Kong Korea to celebrate her birthday, and stayed at her home for the duration of his trip. Gillian could not help but gush over Kwon’s birthday gift to her – a limited edition luxury handbag, in which only five pieces exist in the world.
In early March this year, Gillian flew to South Korea to attend the premiere of G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation to support her boyfriend, who is involved in film production. They also attended EEG Music’s Spring banquet for the first time as a couple together in Hong Kong. In late March, Kwon accompanied Gillian at Ip Man: The Final Fight’s <葉問—終極一戰> premiere.
Relationship is Over?
Yesterday, a reader noticed that both Gillian and Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) have removed all Weibo postings regarding Kwon. Reporters called Gillian and Charlene for clarification. Though both were not available for comments, their manager, Mani Fok (霍汶希) was evasive, which led to speculations that Gillian and Kwon has indeed broken up. Even though Gillian is back in Hong Kong after filming The Fox Lover <白狐> in China, she was not seen accompanying Kwon when he attended his friend G-Dragon’s concert.
