Ian Fang slowly approaches 8days.sg with a stoic expression on his face and two minders by his side. “How are you?” we ask him. “Okay,” he replies calmly, as he slinks into a chair next to us.
We last spoke to the 29-year-old actor back in April about the passing of his beloved grandmother. Then he was pensive and somber but he had sounded optimistic about the future. Who would know that just a mere two weeks later, his life would be turned topsy-turvy by the reputation-crushing leaked DMs scandal between him and Carrie Wong.
The usually cool and chillax actor now appears a tad unnerved at the prospect of doing an interview when we meet him after his imaging session for upcoming Ch 8 drama Happy Prince. While he used to be chatty and engaging, he now seems tentative with his answers. It could also be because he knows that whatever he says now (especially about that topic) may be misconstrued or blown up for the headlines the next day. Still, he takes it all in his stride and tries his best to answer our questions anyway, especially those about the current status of his relationship with Rebecca Lim, to whom he’s been romantically linked.
