Vanessa Yeung has been harshly criticized for being nine years older than her boyfriend Bosco Wong, appearing more like an older sister than girlfriend.
Debuting in 2000, Bosco is still regarded as one of TVB’s youngest and rising actors.
According to an article in Popular Asians, Bosco shrugged off the negative backlash and does not mind the age gap at all. He said he loves Vanessa for who she is.
Many netizens felt that Bosco and Vanessa’s relationship came out of nowhere, and many of Bosco’s fans have expressed that Vanessa was not a good match for the actor.
When asked how Bosco fell in love with her, she said: “There’s no need to complicate things.
"He told me that he liked me for my simplicity. It is that simple."
Bosco and Vanessa reportedly bonded through their common interest in food and cooking, and the couple helped build Bosco’s oyster bar together.
