She added that when it comes to marriage, "nature should be allowed to run its course".

"S.H.E. will reunite one day. We (Chen and group mate Hebe Tien) will wait for Selina, though we really don't know when we can reunite as she still isn't well," said Chen.
Chen is currently working on the Taiwan film "Bad Girl" - her first film ever.

Taiwanese host Patty Hou will walk down the aisle with her fiancé Ken Huang on Apr 17.
Yesterday, the couple appeared at the airport, preparing to leave for Bali, Indonesia. The bride-to-be kept her smile on throughout the entire time when she was swarmed by reporters.
Decked in spring attire and minimal makeup, Patty wore a pair of huge sunglasses, which did not hide the bliss radiating from her.
She expressed that the wedding would be a simple affair. The couple had only invited about 30 family and friends. They did not select any church, nor would the wedding be on a beach. Patty also let on that the couple did not take any wedding photos either.
"We hope everyone would have a good time. It's not every day that we can hang out with our relatives," Patty said.
Looking casual in a plain, white tee and blue jeans, it was the first time fiancé Ken appeared in the media, which was probably why he seemed a little nervous. When the couple alighted from the vehicle, Patty held on to his hand tightly.
When asked if she was going to have children after her marriage, Patty expressed that it would not happen in a while.
"I have to start work once I return home. I think I'll wait for a year or two," she said.
In 2009, Taiwanese actor Jerry Yan and actress Terri Kwan worked together on the drama Starlit and was later rumoured to be dating each other. However, the pair always maintained that they were nothing more than friends.
Recently, a Taiwanese tabloid revealed that the celebs were actually dating each other.
According to the source, Jerry and Terri had been dating in secret for the past two years and despite the frequent quarrels, the couple did not break up.
It is known that rumours of the two celebs began after Terri was spotted going to Jerry's place two years ago. In November that same year, the two was said to have toured Sumerian Island together.
Last year, Terri said that "it was an old rumour" and described her relationship with Jerry as a "human and ghost" one.
However, the tabloid refuted that Terri once revealed her views on love and said she hopes to date in secret and intends to get married suddenly without her parents' knowledge.
When interviewed, Jerry's management expressed that it is normal for celebs to be meeting each other. The company will not interfere and hopes that the public will stop speculating.
Terri's manager replied that the company will not interfere on their artistes' personal relationships and is unsure of Terri's relationship status now. The manager added that Terri and Jerry are friends and it is usual for the two to keep in contact.

Dating for two years, devout Christians, Wong Cho Lam and Leanne Li pledged to abstain from sex before marriage. They often included their friends on their romantic dates. When sexual temptations crossed their minds, Cho Lam and Leanne will quickly pray to God for assistance. Wearing matching chastity rings, Cho Lam and Leanne will monitor each other to resist desire.
Earlier this year, Cho Lam gave Leanne a simply patterned ring, engraved with the words, “Love + Purity.” The ring was a symbol of the Christian practice of remaining chaste before marriage. Cho Lam gave the chastity ring to Leanne as a token of love, while wearing a matching ring himself. Although the pair do not have marriage intentions at this stage, Cho Lam allegedly vowed a lifelong committment to Leanne when he gave her the chastity ring.
“The pair of chastity rings represent a couple’s vows, including abstinence from pre-marital sex, belief in monogamy, and lifetime devotion to each other. Cho Lam and Leanne said they regarded their chastity rings with equal importance as wedding rings,” a source close to the couple revealed.
To abstain from pre-marital sex, Cho Lam and Leanne had to take several precautionary measures. They refused to live together and often went on dates while accompanied by other friends. They avoided situations where they would be by themselves in a dwelling, in which temptation would abound. Two years of abstinence was not easy. Wearing chastity rings reminded Cho Lam and Leanne to refrain from eating forbidden fruit.
Revealing Chastity Rings on Facebook
Cho Lam and Leanne revealed photos of their chastity rings on Facebook. Leanne followed the common practice of wearing her chastity ring on her left hand, until one day it would be replaced by her wedding ring. The engraved words, “Love + Purity” would provide vigilance in their relationship.
Cho Lam Admits He Thought About Sex
Dating Leanne for two years, Cho Lam frankly admitted that occasionally he would be tempted, “I would be lying if I said I never thought about having sex. However, Leanne and I both place God first. During tense moments, we will immediately pray together. In the last two years, we were able to resist temptation. Perhaps some people will say this was silly, but we know we are doing the right thing. The chastity rings represent our shared values.”
Since Leanne’s Cantonese was not good, this often resulted in humorous situations. Cho Lam revealed, “A friend asked Leanne what kind of ring she was wearing. Leanne said ‘a clean ring!’ Haha, she said ‘clean’ instead of ‘chastity’ (貞潔變清潔). I laughed hilariously.”
To quell their temptation, Leanne and Cho Lam often prayed together. Leanne said, “Whenever Cho Lam has a bad thought, he will ask me to pray with him. He has done very well. Although we do not wear our chastity rings everyday, we have followed the Commandments over the last two years.” Receiving the chastity ring made Leanne happier than receiving a diamond ring. “I feel very much at ease having a boyfriend who will not be easily tempted.”
Although dating for two years, allegedly Cho Lam did not receive Leanne’s parents’ approval yet. Since the couple will be attending a Christian outreach event in Canada later this year, Cho Lam will likely visit Leanne’s parents and hopefully receive their approval.

After Olympic gold medalist Liu Xuan retired, she entered the entertainment industry and signed a TVB management contract. Her first TVB series Grace Under Fire is currently broadcasting. During the interview, Liu Xuan frankly said that shooting series is more difficult than physical training. She said: "Shooting series is totally more difficult than physical training. At least you have time to rest and sleep when your training, but shooting series there is no time to sleep. There is also a great pressure when during the shoot, which causes insomnia." Bosco Wong greatly praised Liu Xuan: "On the first day of shooting, she already had a fighting scene, I saw her eyes becoming crossed as she fought, felt she was very pitiful."
Liu Xuan appears to be able to withstand difficulty, but Bosco reveals that she is actually a 'medicine pot', as she is often taking Chinese medications during the series shooting. Liu Xuan said: "Before my health was not well, so now I'm taking Chinese medication to recapture my health." When asked if she will shoot a TVB series every year? She joked: "Shooting series is truly difficult, I will take a break first, wait until TVB has something arranged for me."

Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Raymond Wong Ho Yin, Nancy Wu Ding Yan, and Selena Li Sze Wan appeared at the costume fitting for new TVB series, The King Boxer "拳王". Kevin and Raymond will portray boxers in the series. The two men appeared embarrassed by the show of skin. After requests from the press, Kevin and Raymond finally agreed to remove their outer robes for photos, which delivered a gay atmosphere!
During the photograph session, Kevin posed awkwardly to cover his nipples. Kevin said, “I am learning Muay Thai techniques. As the filming progresses, I will become more fit!” (There was a heavy gay feel before.) “Everyone knows that will not happen. There is little chance in changing [sexual] preferences.” (Are you embarrassed?) “I was not embarrassed until the press asked me to reveal my nipples. I never appeared this way before the press before!”
Recently becoming a new father, Raymond Wong said he felt strange holding his newborn son. “We have not decided on the Chinese name yet. I help change the diapers. My wife gives the baby a bath and breastfeeds him. Since we have sponsorship of milk powder, it should not be a problem!”
Baring her midriff at The King Boxer costume fitting, Nancy Wu will portray a deaf female boxer. Although Muay Thai was difficult to learn, Nancy felt fortunate that she did not possess any fat, thus making it easier to develop muscle. Selena Li will portray a career woman and share a romantic relationship with Kevin Cheng.
