To end Ruco Chan’s (陳展鵬) bachelor days, his mother has decided to step in and arrange blind dates for him. Although his mother introduced Ruco to a young woman over lunch recently, he did not appear highly interested in pursuing her further.
Ruco was linked with co-star, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) after Brother’s Keeper <巨輪>. Even though Ruco knows that Linda is in a long-term relationship with Philip Ng (伍允龍), Ruco allegedly remained interested in her.
When they were filming The Apothecary <大藥坊> in the mountainside, Ruco carefully held Linda’s hand and guided her down the sleep slope, showing his attentive concern.
According to a report on Jayne Stars, Philip allegedly grew upset and gave Linda an ultimatum, asking her to choose between him and Ruco.
An insider revealed, “Linda rarely became involved with her co-stars. This time it was different. She feels that Ruco is different from other actors in the industry since he is very filial.
"Unknowingly, she began to have feelings for him. At the same time, she could not bear to give up her 6-year relationship with Philip. In addition, they share the same religion. So Linda eventually decided to go back to her boyfriend’s side. And Ruco could not do anything.”
Ruco’s mother is sorely disappointed that the 37-year-old actor still has a blank love life.
The insider said, “Mrs. Chan can't wait to have grandchildren. Her wish is for Ruco to date and get married. She found excuses to include other women when they eat out together. Of course, Ruco knew what his mother was up to, but pretended it was nothing.”
Ruco and his mother were spotted having a meal at a café in Kowloon Tung earlier. Sitting at the table was a long-haired woman whom Ruco’s mother was trying to match him with.
However, the woman was seen talking primarily to Ruco’s mother. Throughout the meal, Ruco appeared nonchalant and hardly talked to the woman. After the meal, Ruco paid and rushed out of the café, leaving his mother and his blind date behind.
