I saw this one coming a mile away once Gong Hay Fat Choy‘s plotline took a sharp turn left midway through its run. After months of media speculation and gossip, former GHFC co-stars Alice Ke and Kun Da have pretty much confirmed they are dating. At last week’s SETTV end of the year drama awards, Kun Da was asked about his relationship with Alice offscreen and he said they are very happy. Apple Daily also photographed them together leaving from his place and spending the entire day together before returning home. I’m happy for them but obviously the rumor mills are pointing fingers at Alice as the Xiao San in why Kun Da and Ivy Chen broke up this Summer after dating for many years. Ivy has confirmed that she was the one who asked to take a break and she was taken aback at him agreeing and then it ended just like that. While Alice and Ivy have very different onscreen personas, in real life they are both the low key, funny, tomboyish type. In GHFC, Alice and Kun Da played good friends who have known each other for years, and in the first half of the drama her character dated Patrick Li‘s character while Kun Da’s character harbored a long standing unrequited crush on her. Then the story switched and she broke up with Patrick and someone fell for the guy who was always around and she never once thought of romantically. I figured then that the rumors of their growing RL affection for each other must be true because narratively it didn’t make any sense to me. Since her debut in 2009, Alice has been linked with TW-actors like Lawrence Ko and Edison Wang so she’s no stranger to the six degrees of separation in the small industry. Wishing this new couple the best and hope it works out!
