Actress Charlie Young confirmed that she was getting married after a report said she will wed her Singapore boyfriend of 19 years in the republic this Saturday (Nov 2).

"I would like to share a piece of happy news - I'm marrying my other half," she wrote on Weibo today.

The Straits Times cited information from an Apple Daily Taiwan report, which said the Hong Kong-based, Taiwanese star will have a simple wedding with Khoo Shao Tze, 43, at a five-star hotel.

Young, 39, has invited her Hong Kong friends and co-stars such as Gigi Leung, Aaron Kwok, and Julian Cheung and wife Anita Yuen, who will be flying into Singapore from Thursday, it added.

The 20-odd showbiz guests also include director Tsui Hark and his wife Nansun Shi, and director Oxide Pang and actress wife Lee Sinje.

Khoo, a trained lawyer, is working as the secretary to the Indonesian Tourism minister, according to Apple. The couple met in 1993. In 1997, she quit acting to set up an image consultancy with him. But the business ended in 2003 amid debts and she said the romance was over.

In 2011, they were said to have reunited. He reportedly proposed six months ago. But, as reported, Young did not say yes to him till May, when she finally made her directorial debut with Christmas Rose.
