Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu is in love, and it shows on her face.
The 35-year-old TVB star, who was in town to promote her new drama Every Step You Take, appeared relaxed and exuded a radiant glow at an interview with The New Paper yesterday.
She smiled when asked about her new boyfriend, saying in Mandarin: "He isn't in Singapore with me. I wanted him to come, but the schedule is too rushed."
Wu has been dating Hong Kong businessman Philip Lee, 40, for almost six months, after being single for two years.
The pair were first spotted last December attending a charity ball together. They were snapped kissing in Taiwan a month later.
Unlike how she was during her eight-year relationship with Hong Kong TVB actor Bosco Wong, which ended in 2012, Wu did not attempt to hide her current romance.
Both parties have met each other's parents, but Wu denied that they are walking down the aisle soon.
"It's been reported that he has proposed to me three times and we are getting married at the end of this year. Don't believe the reports," she said candidly,
"If he has proposed, where is my ring?"
Wu, whose ring finger was bare, added: "The media tends to be more anxious than I am when it comes to my love life. If I start dating someone, they will ask me when am I getting married. If I get married, they will ask me when am I giving birth."
Wu said she would announce the good news if and when it happens.
She said: "I am not the kind who will get married secretly. It's good news, I will be open about it."
She also refuted reports that Mr Lee wants her to quit showbiz after they marry, saying that he has always supported her in her acting career.
Said Wu: "Usually, he doesn't interfere with my work. If he is against me working in the entertainment industry, he wouldn't have dated an actress in the first place."
When asked what she liked most about Lee, she smiled and said: "I don't mind the media knowing that I am dating him, but I don't want everyone to keep focusing on him. It's better to leave some things unsaid and let there be some mystery."
