Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) and Philip Ng (伍允龍) have been rumored for years, and although they never denied nor confirmed their relationship to the public, it is an open secret that they have been dating for at least seven years.
Linda and Philip used to avoid making public appearances together, but after Philip’s appearance at Linda’s mini concert and his unabashed presence at Linda’s 30th birthday party, they are slowly bringing their relationship to the public.
Perhaps Linda may be too busy filming her latest TVB drama Elegant Transformation <華麗轉身>, which also stars Liza Wang (汪明荃), Damian Lau (劉松仁), and Alex Fong Lik Sun (方力申), but Philip seems to have a lot of free time recently.
On July 15, Philip was spotted on a date with Trish Kwan (關之彤), the goddaughter of retired actress and producer, Hsu Feng (徐楓). Trish had a brief stint as an actress several years ago, but she has since left the film industry to dabble in business.
Philip and Trish were first seen eating dinner at a restaurant in Central, where they sat near the entrance. Philip appeared embarrassed when a few people recognized him. Speaking mostly in English, Philip and Trish chatted nonstop for two hours and only ordered three dishes of food.
According to Jayne Stars, they left the restaurant around 10 p.m. and went to the Central Ferry Piers, where they continued their ongoing conversation.
According to gossip reports, Philip and Trish acted like a pair of young lovers and playfully bickered on their way to the beach. They also took out their phones to take selfies. A little while later, they went to a nearby snack bar and shared one glass of beer.
Reporters called up Linda and asked if she was aware that Philip has been seeing another woman behind her back.
Linda said, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. What I do know is that Philip has many friends. If they’re friends, then [sharing the same drink] is absolutely normal. I also take selfies and share drinks with my friends!”
