Zhang Yaodong Clarifies That He & Paige Chua Aren’t Dating After Netizens Got The Wrong Idea 'Cos Of These Pics
It’s reel life, not real life, okay?
“I’ll [choose] love again as long as [it brings you] happiness]," he captioned. She wrote: “Life is about taking chances. So is love."
Naturally, this led people to believe that it was Yaodong and Paige's way of making it IG-official and announcing that they're dating. It didn’t help that their celeb friends, such as Romeo Tan, left a trail of heart emojis on both their posts.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Paige and Yaodong aren’t dating.
“We received so many congratulatory messages that I was quite shocked!" Yaodong said with a chuckle when he spoke to 8days.sg over the phone a day after the photos were posted. "But rumours of us dating aren’t true. We took these photos when we were filming Soul Old Yet So Young, and I decided to post something on my IG after I saw Paige do the same. We even added the show’s hashtags to our captions, so I don’t know why people would misunderstand.”
The 43-year-old explained that he’s worked with Paige so many times that they’re “very comfortable with each other”. That rapport helped a lot as they play a couple in Soul Old Yet So Young, and had plenty of emotional scenes that “wouldn’t have been possible to film if we didn’t know each other so well”.
