Chinese model-actress Lynn Hung open to idea of marrying a Singaporean

She has been single for more than a year now, following her high-profile split with Hong Kong Heavenly King Aaron Kwok last April.

But Hong Kong-based Chinese model-actress Lynn Hung, 33, still harbours hope of meeting the right man and marrying him someday. And Singaporean men stand a chance.

"I wouldn't mind marrying a Singaporean," she said.

"I have many friends here who want to introduce Singaporean men to me. Hopefully I can meet one whom I like soon."

"Singaporean men are very gentlemanly and polite. They are also friendly and will take me to enjoy good local food whenever I visit."

"But so far, those I like are either attached or married. I have to wait for the right one."

The star was in town for the first anniversary celebration of Japanese luxury jeweller Mikimoto's flagship boutique and the launch of Mikimoto and Hello Kitty collection at Marina Bay Sands yesterday.

Speaking to local media afterwards, Hung appeared to be in a good mood, joking with the press and speaking about her love life openly.

Hung dated Kwok, 48, for seven years before calling it quits last year.

It was reported that the couple had differences over marriage. Hung wanted Kwok to commit to her seriously, but he was not ready to.

It was also rumoured that Kwok was secretly seeing another actress, 31-year-old Christine Kuo, while he and Hung were still dating, leading to their break-up.

Hung was linked to several men outside of the entertainment industry after the break-up, but she denied this, saying they were just her friends.


Hung started out as a model in China in 1999 before expanding her acting career in Hong Kong.

She is best known for her role as Ip Man's wife, starring opposite martial arts star Donnie Yen in the well-received award-winning 2008 film Ip Man.

"If I have a boyfriend, I will be open about it and tell all of you, so don't be too anxious," said the 1.79m-tall actress said.
