Zhang Zetong Was "Rejected Politely" By Hong Ling When He Asked Her Out For A Meal Before They Started Shooting You Can Be An Angel 4
Awkward, yes, but the stars eventually became friends with a lot of things to talk about on the set of the medical drama.
In Mediacorp drama You Can Be An Angel 4, Zhang Zetong, 29, and Hong Ling, 27, play what the actor describes as the “CP [couple]” of the series. In real life, though it couldn't be more different. And no, it's not because Hong Ling is dating Nick Teo.
According to Zetong, his friendship with Hong Ling didn’t exactly start off on the right foot.
In a phone interview with 8days.sg, the Star Search champ says they were basically “strangers" before Angel 4.
And so, this awkward exchange happened during their first meeting.
"I still remember very vividly, during the imaging [for the drama], when the EP asked [us if] we knew each other, and Hong Ling replied very coldly, 'No.' I was like, 'Oh'. I was about to say that we might have bumped into each other, but she just outright said nope,” he laughs.
But that’s not all.
