Although Nicholas Tse and Zhou Xun have been quick to debunk rumours that they were romantically linked, Nick's friends are less apprehensive about seeing them together.
Ting Fung's friends Yung Cho Yi and Choi Cheuk Yin seemed to agree with the idea of them dating. Ah Sa praised that they were well matched and even said that she had imagined them together before. Yung Cho Yi joked that Ting Fung liked "Beijing accent" girls in particular, seemingly hinting that the rumor was not without its merit.
When Yung Cho Yi and Ah Sa were asked about Ting Fung's new romantic rumour, they both sent their well wishes. Joey said, "I don't know how to answer about Ting Fung's matter. I haven't asked him, but I agree very much for him to date. He has great qualities.
When someone has been alone for a long time he would become dry. I don't know who that person is, but as a friend I would be happy for him. (Do you feel that he is in love?) No, I just feel that if he isn't dating it would be quite a waste."
Are Ting Fung and Zhou Xun a good match? Joey just laughed and answered ambiguously. "Ah Jai (Ting Fung's nickname) has always liked to hear Putonghua, and liked the Beijing accent. As long as you don't pay attention to his over-a-decade-old LV slippers, he has always been very sharply dressed.
"However I am not much of a gossip, I keep my mouth shut. I remember recently I have seen Zhou Xun."
When reporters asked if she saw her at Ting Fung's home, she immediately pushed away the question: "I remember now, I saw her on the newspaper."
