This is one case where real life is as makjang and melodramatic as fiction on dramas. TW-ent is all about the crazy, wild love triangle now legal drama involving two stars and one spurned wife. Actor Mars Ma (Ma Jun Lin) and actress Hitomi Wang (Wang Tong) starred as onscreen lovers in hit Taiwanese drama Great Times which ended its run recently. Starting in June when the drama premiered there was rumors that the two were falling in love in real life, a problem since she’s got a boyfriend and he’s got a wife with two infant twin boys. They denied it over and over again but his wife posted on her FB in June about a “Ms. Wang” wrecking her marriage and her husband straying. This situation exploded this week when Hitomi was served a lawsuit for adultery and promptly brought her mom and aunt to Mar’s house to “talk to” his wife, who did not want to see them but they came at night anyways. The talk turned into yelling with Hitomi’s aunt saying that it was Mars who was coming onto Hitomi and chiding the wife for not managing her husband well and for not giving him the warmth he needed in the family hence he went elsewhere. Dang. More after the jump.
The day before the confrontation, Mars’ wife filed a lawsuit against Hitomi in court for adultery. Mars and Hitomi then called a tearful press conference admitting they crossed the line – Hitomi asked for forgiveness from the wife and Mars said he didn’t know his wife was filing the lawsuit against Hitomi and said he would take responsibility for blurring the lines between reel and real and being a bad actor that he transferred his onscreen emotions to real life. OMG you can’t make this shit up. TW-netizens are ALL on the side of the wife – getting cheated on sucks but Hitomi taking her mom and aunt to force the wife to talk to them is wrong 100% so it doesn’t even matter what they were going to say to her but the aunt blaming the wife makes it even worse. Then the tearful press conference by the two cheaters was just lame to behold though imma did get my popcorn and cannot look away. Mars’ wife also posted video of the confrontation at her house which makes Hitomi’s aunt look like the bitch she is. Wild, huh? Now both Mars and Hitomi have been told by the TV network to “take a break from acting to reflect” whatever that means. I just feel sooooooo bad for the wife, herself a fashion designer but also taking care of two toddler twin boys.
