I don’t know if the Taiwanese sense of humor that its stars have with the media and the fans translates elsewhere, because many times the stars will say something totally outrageous and far-fetched because they know it won’t be taken seriously. This week Sonia Sui was in Busan for the film festival along with a contingent of Taiwanese filmmakers and stars. Sonia’s had a great year career wise, but a terrible year relationship wise. Her on-again, off-again relationship with notorious cheating mccheaterson Yao Yuan Hao finally went kaput for good amidst rumors that he had cheated on Sonia with Cyndi Wang. Which I have to say all evidence points to, despite Cyndi claiming she was not the third party interloper. Anyhoo, my karma radar tells me that usually when one things goes well in life, something else is bound to tank to even out the score. With Sonia’s career hitting new heights, its time to dump the toxic boyfriend and move on. When she was in Busan this week, she posted a picture on her official Facebook page saying “Don’t worry guys, I’m in love!” The picture was of her and Jung Woo Sung, so naturally everyone sets off the buzzing. It’s clear to her Taiwanese fans that she’s totally joking and was just thrilled to meet Jung Woo Sung, to which I would say “Who wouldn’t?” If I met him, I’d post a picture together with the caption “This is the father of my babies!” or something like that. My I Lub You has been in Busan all week attending the film festival, so I’m thinking he probably has a film project lined up next since his last work was the drama Padam Padam: The Sound of His and Her Heartbeats.
Other than hamming it up with my I Lub You (so jealous), Sonia and Sandrine Pinna have been rocking Busan promoting Taiwan films to the gathered international film community. Nice to see Taiwan representing!
