You may have read about this Chinese man's story of how he met his beautiful wife in Ukraine.

Upon graduation from his one-year preparatory course, the man, Mei Aichai, attended the Kharkov Academy of Fine Arts in Ukraine.

Mei was the only student who couldn’t draw. He skipped classes a lot during the first semester and stayed home playing video games or going to the gym to play ping pong.

Through ping pong, he met a beautiful 17-year-old high school student who would eventually become his wife.

Photos of the couple love story quickly went viral online as his wife's gorgeous photos were splashed on many news sites and forums. But what you probably didn't know is that Mei is also not too shabby himself.

According to an article in Asiantown, he currently runs a successful company that imports and exports equipment, oil and grain.

Mei is now so successful that he recently purchased over 30,000 square feet of land on which he’s built a villa for his new family.

He said: “Some people think I am very successful, but I feel my greatest happiness comes from my family. I come home everyday on time to eat with my wife, and afterward we go for a walk. I feel this kind of life is very happy.”
