Nancy Wu and rumoured boyfriend Ruco Chan showed up for the same event recently but were incredibly awkward with each other.
According to Jayne Stars, the two did not interact with each other as usual and even avoided standing next to each other in group photos.
When reporters asked them to take photos together, Nancy's assistant pulled her away, making the moment awkward for everybody.
Rumours have been rife after the co-stars were seen eating dessert together and when Ruco was spotted sending Nancy home.
The are currently shooting TVB drama The Alliance.
“We’ve been working everyday,” said Nancy, when reporters asked about her ‘developments’ with Ruco. “There’s no development.”
Nancy said the paparazzi’s “bust” did not affect her friendship with Ruco, and that he still drives her home after work.
Her friends and colleagues take turn driving her as well.
“Everyone knows that I can’t drive now because my license got suspended. We always have late nights, and when we have outdoor photography, it’s usually far away. You wouldn’t just leave me out there with no way to get back home!” (Ruco deserves some extra points.)
“He really is a gentleman.”
When Ruco was asked why they weren't taking photos together, he said:
“I don’t even know what’s going on right now, but it’s probably because we’ve taken too many photos together before.” (You guys aren’t doing interviews together either.) “I really don’t know. Maybe they don’t want me to say something wrong.”
Ruco also said that he thinks Nancy is great but he has "problems":
“I’m strange in the sense that I’m too focused on my work. I don’t want to distract myself from that.”
“I don’t want things to get awkward between us, and I don’t want it to affect work. I want to maintain our current relationship right now as great colleagues and partners. Of course, if there are feelings, we can date. It’s not like my contract prohibits it. However, I feel that work is more important right now. I’ve been getting so many questions like these, I don’t even know what to respond anymore.”
