It’s Monday evening and we have just received a text from Ch 8 host Dasmond Koh.
He tells us to check out Xu Bin’s Instagram page 'cos the star, who is an artiste under Dasmond's NoonTalk Media agency, has just made an announcement that he’s getting married and that he will reveal all in a press conference tomorrow. Dasmond also assures us, when we text him for confirmation about the news, that “it's real, and not fake news”.
As of now, we don't know much about Xu Bin's wife-to-be yet, except that she is called Yi Fei, and that the couple have done a pre-wedding shoot in Maldives.
Who knew that the 28-year-old actor would be the first of Mediacorp's Eight Dukes to get married? Prior to this, the actor has always kept mum about his love life. If anything, we had always thought that it would be Jeffrey Xu, who’s dating Felicia Chin, or Shane Pow, who fronts this week's cover with his girlfriend 987 jock Kimberly Wang, or Desmond Tan, who has a stable longtime girlfriend, to get hitched first. Guess Xubin just beat all of them to it.
