Ethan Ruan Almost Done with Military Service and Wants to Settle Down by 2014

The army taketh, the army giveth back. Hopefully hotter and more mature, of course. I’m already reserving my tears for when Yoo Seung Ho enlists early this year, but I take solace in knowing a bunch of actors in Taiwan and Korea are coming back soon so I can fill the void happily. Military service in Taiwan has gone from two years to one year and done soΒ Ethan Ruan is coming out in January 2013 after serving desk duty in Taipei, though I doubt we’ll be getting any army abs. He’s actually been in the news a lot this month since his period movie The Guillotines with Huang Xiaoming just got released for the holiday season. I haven’t seen it yet but reviews have been mixed, though the funniest quip came from a reviewer who called it “the wuxia version of Monga“. Ethan obviously missed all the promotions though he did make some video appearances. He filmed the movie right before he enlisted and its such a boon that its coming up right before he’s released, almost like whetting fan appetite for him. Up next for Ethan is in a cameo appearance in the currently filming TW-period movie The Hidden Heroine with Shu Qi. I think its a safe bet we won’t be seeing Ethan back in TW-dramas much, if at all, now that his film career has taken off. Recently Ethan and his girlfriend Tiffany Hsu have been asked about their marriage plans since Ethan was seen wearing a ring on his ring finger. Ethan said it was his couple’s ring with Tiffany and he definitely wants to settle down since he’s 30 year old. The earliest will be the following year, to which Tiffany confirmed that sounds about right since both their careers are red hot right now.

Despite Ethan’s issues with fidelity, these two have definitely weathered a lot of ups and downs in their five-year and strong relationship, which includes Ethan’s hilarious failed attempt to put a ring on Tiffany before he enlisted. They are now living together and are still seriously committed. Tiffany revealed that she sees Ethan every weekend since he’s serving in Taipei and has the weekends off. Conversely she’s the busier one right now as she is the lead in the currently airing Friday drama Love Me or Leave Me with Chris Wang. The story of Ethan and Tiffany is very well known since they are one of the most public and famous couples in TW-entertainment. Ethan has shared the story of how he saw Tiffany on TV first and thought she was the prettiest thing he had ever laid eyes on. Then he met her at a photo shoot when he went to visit some model friends of his. But when he approached her, she iced him thinking he was a total douchebag who picked up pretty girls left and right. He had to work hard before winning her heart and to this day he isn’t shy about revealing how he’s the forward one in the relationship. Tiffany’s middle name is Ann and that is actually what all her friends call her, and Ethan says she is so pretty that everyone assumes a lot about her but in truth she’s a very introspective and thoughtful girl that he continues to learn new things about her. Hope these two make it around the final lap and walk down the aisle because hot dang it their babies would be sooooo gorgeous! Ethan posted the following picture on his weibo awhile ago of him video chatting with his two girls. So cute!

  1. Awwwwwwwwwwww! That vid chat photo is adorable.
    Why am I not TAH again?
    I love how the pair is so affectionate in photos. Why try to hide a relationship from the press, anyway?

    LOVE that dress, btw.

    Ethan – if you ever get tired of youth and beauty, I’m here for you. LOL

    • Your newest avatar has me conclude that Kim Ji Hoon eventually did not call you? πŸ˜€

      Unbeknownst to many, you have mad a cunning pun with your that vid chat photo is adorable comment. Cuz “chat” is French for “cat”, the other lady on that photo. πŸ˜‰

      Ethan’s decision to settle down because he’s 30 and his issue with fidelity? No comment. *rolling eyes*

      • KJH did not call me, baby.

        Look how cool I am unbenknownst!
        I wish I could claim I did that on purpose!

        My newest avatar *le sigh* This kid is hot hot hot. I loved him in May Queen. He is dangerous.

      • He must have been too busy shooting his drama. πŸ˜›

        More in My queen than Fated to love you, the boy has been well aware of his “dangerousness”. πŸ˜‰

  2. Aww… they are so sweet.
    I always thought they are a perfect example on how being open about their relationship has not hindered each other’s career.

    • Actually, I though it did hurt him before. That he didn’t agree to hide the fact that he had a girlfriend and was passed over for roles.
      Did I make that up?

      • I think his management told him to break up because it could hurt his career but he refuse and become popular and remain HOT!! I really don’t care who an actor/actress is dating in real life as long as when they are in characters they “ACT” like that person who playing opposite is they only love. Ethan does that, he gets it! The scene in My Queen and Fated to love you shows that Ethan gets it! If every actor/actress understands that your personal life should not affect your work especially doing love scene there should no issue having a real relationship. It’s an issue when you bring you personal life into your character making an invisible love interest that wasn’t written in storyline.

        I don’t worry too much with TW drama but K-drama they can’t do love scene being single because the country is they lover…lol but when an actor/actress gets married it like watching a Priest and Nun in love!

  3. koala please watch king of dramas its really good. although it may give off a dark theme (no wonder the ratings are low) and full of obstacles that will make you tired and hopeless especially for the lead character, through out or mostly during the whole drama, the plot’s very consistent and it really sucks you in. the drama quality is really good I think you have to watch it. πŸ™‚
