Before August 5 this year, Rui En, 40, was one of the very few local artistes who didn’t have a public Instagram account. The fiercely private — or at least, she used to be — actress was once “vehemently against the idea of having social media” and “swore [she] would never start it for the sake of privacy”.
Not only is she finally on the platform (it’s @wilderseas29, for anyone who doesn’t know yet), she admitted to 8days.sg that she’s “quite” addicted to checking her feed. Fans have even told her that she’s “posting too many Stories”.
“It’s kinda gotten to a point where I have to say to myself, ‘Okay, I need to control this, otherwise it would be very hard to switch off and go to bed,’” she chuckled. “I just take it as something that I haven’t really had the chance to experience before. I’m pretty sure the novelty is gonna wear off, but for now, I’m still having fun.”
