Starring as a pair of college sweethearts in Taiwanese romance drama The Way We Were <16個夏天>, Ruby Lin (林心如) and Weber Yang (楊一展) have reportedly carried their onscreen romance over to real life.
As the pairing is very popular with viewers, rumors that Ruby and Weber are together have been running rampant since the show’s debut.
Despite denying the dating rumors, Ruby and Weber were recently photographed on a date! In the photographs captured by the paparazzi, all the signs of a date were evident.
Ruby and Weber were shown happily chatting over afternoon tea, reports Jayne Stars.
Ruby was clad in all black and wearing a cap, as if she was deliberately trying to avoid attention.
At the end of the meal, Weber got the bill and drove Ruby home.
In response to these photos, Weber’s manager stated that it was just two friends meeting up.
Ruby’s manager gave no response.
This is not the first time that Ruby and Weber showed signs of dating.
Earlier this year, they were photographed with a group of mutual friends at a barbecue during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Fans immediately spotted Weber’s hand placed on Ruby’s waist, and started a lively debate about their purported romance.
As expected, at the time, both Ruby and Weber denied that they were romantically involved.
Weber even went so far as to say, “I’m not good enough [for Ruby].”
He explained that as they were all a little tipsy at the gathering, he was trying to be a gentleman by holding onto Ruby.
On Ruby’s part, she asserted, “Even if we were really together, I wouldn’t so generously share photos!”
In spite of all the denials, fans of the Ruby-Weber pairing are excited by the latest developments, especially with recent photos giving them ample gossip room.
