WU CHUN IS SUCH A ONE-WOMAN-MAN
I JUST WANT TO SHARE:
WU CHUN IS ALREADY MARRIED --- IN 2009
After admitting to his married status, Wu Chun (吳尊) further revealed that he and his wife are now expecting a son.
On October 2, Wu Chun held a press conference in Taiwan to promote his new book Ignite Courage <決定勇敢>. Due to Wu Chun’s shocking marriage revelation, he appeared very nervous, his face tense and his hands clutched tightly onto his microphone. To ease his nerves, Wu Chun’s team invited good friend and famous TV hostess Matilda Tao (陶晶瑩) to lead the show. Wu Chun’s father was also in attendance to show his support, while his wife sent encouragement via text message prior to the event.Wife Wanted Marriage to Be a Secret
Dressed in a solemn black suit, Wu Chun immediately bowed down 90 degrees as soon as he stepped onto the stage. He explained that he had always wanted to share the news about his marriage, but refrained from doing so due to his wife’s wishes. “She has her own opinions. I must respect her decision. Perhaps she feels ready to bravely face and share the news after becoming a mother, and decided to reveal the truth.” He also spoke briefly about his daughter. “I was married in 2009, and my daughter was born in 2010. She is almost three years old. When my daughter was born, I was there to document her birth with photos and videos.”
A hands-on dad, Wu Chun has been taking care of all the details of his daughter’s life, becoming quite skilled at feeding, bathing, and changing diapers. He also proudly shared that his daughter can now point him out from Fahrenheit <飛輪海> posters. When asked, Wu Chun rates himself as a decent husband and father, giving himself 90 points.Expecting a Son in October
Wu Chun’s parenting skills will certainly come in handy once again. At the press conference, the 33-year-old shared another piece of happy news. “My wife is actually pregnant with our second child and is about to give birth. Together we will have a boy and a girl. [My son] will also be a Libra like my daughter.” Turning 34 on October 10, Wu Chun will share the same astrological sign with his two children.
Sharp-eyed reporters noticed that a photo of Wu Chun’s wife Lin Li Ying (林麗瑩) appears in his new book. In an old black and white photo, Li Ying was seen standing close-by as Wu Chun introduced his gym’s latest exercise equipment to Brunei’s sultan. The book also contains a close-up photo of his daughter’s tiny hand held tightly onto his own.
When asked to discuss his relationship with his wife, Wu Chun shared that the two argued often during their first year together but always managed to resolve their differences by the end of the day. He praised his wife for always trusting him despite being surrounded by the many temptations of the entertainment industry. He added that he is easily pleased and treasures what he already has. Wu Chun also took the opportunity to dispel rumors linking him to former co-stars Angela Chang (張韶涵) and Ella Chen (陳嘉樺), saying that they are only colleagues and that he had never spent time with either alone.
Regarding his announcement’s impact, Wu Chun stated that he was never concerned about how his married status could affect his career or his income, saying “My family has always been the most important thing to me!” He explained that if he truly cared, he would not choose to only film one project a year. Wu Chun also denied allegations that he revealed the news only to generate noise for his new book. He vowed to donate royalties received from his book, and will also donate an additional $1 million HKD to improve the education of needy children in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, and Brunei.
At the end of the event, Wu Chun once again bowed deeply for three seconds. He apologized for his nervousness and said, “I may have spoken or behaved wrongly before. I hope everyone will forgive me. Here I will apologize to everyone. I am sorry.”
WU CHUN ADMITS TO MARRIAGE AND FATHERHOOD
In a shocking announcement made today, Wu Chun (吳尊) finally admits to being married and blissfully confesses his status as a proud father. He met his wife when he was 16 years old and they have been together for 18 years, supporting each other during life’s roughest moments.
After his debut in 2005 as a member of Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit (飛輪海), Wu Chun quickly gained a massive following for his boyish good looks and fit physique. Despite high media exposure, Wu Chun managed to keep much of his life private, saying little about his relationship status other than the fact that he had experienced his first love during his teenage years.Married to Teenage Sweetheart
Determined to break the mystery, the media traced Wu Chun’s career back to his native Brunei. There they discovered what was considered an open secret. In 2011, Taiwanese media published reports alleging that Wu Chun already filed for marriage in 2009, and that his wife had given birth to a daughter two years later. At that time, Wu Chun firmly denied the rumors. When reporters presented photo evidence at the time, Wu Chun’s manager stated that the woman was Wu Chun’s sister-in-law, and the child belonged to his elder sister.
Spending the past two years back home in Brunei, Wu Chun spent his free time writing a book, Ignite Courage <決定勇敢>, about his life and business ventures. On the eve of its release, Wu Chun decided to make his big confession via his official fan site. He began with his view on romance, speaking freely about his stubborn dedication to love. “No matter how others try to interfere, or how life differs, my persistence towards that love never changes. Once I’ve set my sights on it, I will chase after it till the end. I am working hard for love, for our future.”
The love that Wu Chun has been fighting hard to protect will certainly be cherished forever. “That’s right. I am now playing a role that cannot be bought with money — a blissful super dad!” Wu Chun added that it has been difficult for him to conceal this fact, saying that he is someone who wants to spread happiness, and that becoming a father was a great thing that had changed his life.
He then spoke further about his wife, revealing that she is his first love, Lin Li Ying (林麗瑩). “She has been by my side since I was 16, it has been more than 18 years. She is also my first love. Throughout the years, she helped me pull through all the ups and downs of life. From the time I studied abroad in Australia, to the time my mother passed away, through my best friend’s death, and managing my business in Brunei. All the way until now. She has always been there to give support and encouragement.”Marriage Was an Open Secret
Wu Chun shared that he had introduced Li Ying to others when he first entered the entertainment industry. After he exploded in popularity, Li Ying requested to stay in the shadows, away from media gossips. Wu Chun said, ” I understand and I respect this decision. Because of her complete support, I was able to bravely face the challenges in my life and career. She always reminds me that I am a very lucky person because I have so many supportive and loving fans throughout the years. ‘Today’s Wu Chun would not exist if it wasn’t because of them’ — that is something she had said countless times.”Lin Li Ying’s Background
Although information is sparse, the press discovered that Li Ying’s family is rather well-known in Brunei. Her father is the appointed masseur and nutritionist for the fourth brother of Brunei’s current Sultan. Also, while Wu Chun did not speak about his daughter in detail, some estimated that the girl is around two and a half years old as Wu Chun had remained in Brunei during that time.
To wrap up his blog post, Wu Chun apologized to his fans for the sudden revelation, and thanked them for their support. At this content stage of his life, Wu Chun concludes that to live and to love simply is the greatest achievement of all. Thanking his parents, he reflects, “Here, I want to thank my parents for their love and support. They are always encouraging us, becoming my most powerful backing. This unconditional love allows me to realize that, being able to maintain a simple life and love is truly the utmost bliss.”
HOW WU CHUN & HIS WIFE MET
Wu Chun’s (吳尊) earlier announcement that he is married and is already a father to a two-year old daughter greatly shocked the public. Furthermore, he revealed his wife is currently pregnant with their second child, who will be a boy.
Wu Chun exclaimed, “I would be very upset if I am unable to answer my daughter if she calls me ‘daddy’ on the streets! After much discussion, my wife decided it was the right time to let everyone know. I’m not going to avoid the press because I am prepared for news reports coming my way.”
On October 2, Wu Chun generously accepted a press conference to address the media’s questions. When a reporter claimed Wu Chun once denied being married and to being a father, he explained, “They only photographed my elder sister-in-law back then. The kid was my elder brother’s daughter. I felt very apologetic, because my brother was very unhappy. The reporters were always following around near my house.”
The reporter continued to press on, asking why he had lied about the matters earlier. Wu Chun expressed, “I am willing to take on the criticism from the media. At the time, I was questioned too suddenly and I didn’t know how to respond. I also want to apologize to my manager and company, because they didn’t know about it either.” Wu Chun bowed and apologized several times at the press conference for having hidden the truth.Daughter Was Made in Hong Kong
In a recent interview, Wu Chun opened up and spoke about his family. He laughed and revealed, “My daughter is actually partly from Hong Kong! My wife and I had her when I was in Hong Kong for work. She was made in Hong Kong.”
Since Wu Chun did not want his wife to experience too much pain during childbirth, they opted for a Cesarean section. Wu Chun expressed, “I’m a Libra, and so is my daughter. I really like the personality of Libras, so I’m really happy about it. I feel like my daughter resembles both my wife and I. Recently, I’ve been home watching General Yang <楊家將>. My daughter saw me getting hit in the drama and exclaimed daddy is in pain! She’s still very young and doesn’t know I’m an actor, although she knows she’ll see daddy on television.”
Speaking about his wife Lin Li Ying (林麗瑩), Wu Chun said they share similar personalities. “We understand each other and have been getting along very well for the past 18 years. We both know we shouldn’t take a lover for granted, so we put a lot of effort into the relationship.”How Wu Chun Met His Wife
Wu Chun met Lin Li Ying when he was 16 years old. He revealed she is his brother-in-law’s relative. “My brother-in-law kept wanting to introduce girls to me, so he set up a dinner date. At first I felt a little awkward, but I noticed she has a nice personality. I wanted to keep in touch with her, but I used to be a very shy guy. I held the phone in my hand for two hours without the courage to dial her number. My heart beat very fast, and I even wrote down what I wanted to say on a piece of paper. In the end, I turned out the lights and hid under my covers to make the call. We started going out for dates, but it was still an ambiguous relationship until we went to the beach one day. It was the first time I held her hand. I was crazily in love at the time. We talked over the phone for two hours every day and I always drove her home from school.”
Wu Chun revealed his wedding was a simple one. “It took place at my house. Only our relatives were there. We didn’t invite any of our friends that year, so I would like to hold another celebration party and celebrate with some friends.”
Wu Chun continued and expressed, “My wife wants to keep life low-profile and I respect her decision. I lied to the press in order to protect our relationship. We have discussed this and decided it’s now the right time to share everything. In the past, we always had to walk on the streets with a large group of people. I couldn’t walk alone with my wife and daughter. My wife knew I felt really unnatural and uncomfortable. You guys think I’m brave, but she’s actually the one who’s brave.”
