Love is definitely in the air as Lee Teng went public with his relationship today (Feb 14).
The Taiwanese-born host posted a photo of himself and a mysterious lady in the famous ‘Follow Me To’ pose on his Instagram page, officially taking himself off the market as he went, as they say, Instagram Official.
Speaking to Toggle in a phone interview, the 34-year-old explained, “We’ve actually been dating for a while. I wanted to post something meaningful to wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day, so I decided on this photo.”
As for the identity of the lucky girl, Lee Teng shared that his other half, Gina Lin, 27, is working in a multi-national advertising company. Coincidentally, she too is Taiwanese and is currently based in Singapore.
How they met is straight out of a Korean drama, as he chuckled, “You know there’s an ‘Explore’ tab on Instagram where they show you photos from your friend’s friends? I happened to check that one day and thought that this girl was pretty cute.”
“Turns out, she’s my younger sister’s friend! So I asked my sister, ‘Does she look the same in person?’ since there are many people whose photos are very different from what they look like in real life. My sister assured me that she looks exactly the same, and she was more than happy to introduce us,” he continued.
