Taiwanese artiste Alec Su (蘇有朋) and Ruby Lin (林心如) became good friends after acting in the Mainland China series, My Fair Princess (還珠格格), more than 10 years ago.
A few days ago, Alec attended the press conference of his debut movie in Beijing and Ruby showed her support as well.
According to an article on Asian E-News Portal, during the event Alec exposed that she has a boyfriend, but stopped halfway. This made the public speculate if she indeed has a partner.
As such, his words caused some rumours about Ruby's personal life, but both expressed that it was a misunderstanding.
Alec replied through his manager that he was actually making a joke about Ruby's new movie, Let's Get Married (我們結婚吧！), and did not expect everybody to treat it seriously. He offered his apology.
As for Ruby, her manager clarified that Ruby has no partner currently and Alec had already apologised to her in private.
