The end of March wedding announcements keep on coming, with two in K-ent and also one from Hong Kong. Top HK singer-actor for the past three decades Aaron Kwok is tying the knot, in a timing that feels three decades too late since he’s 52 years old and this is his first marriage. But if Aaron is happy to finally settle down, or it really did take him this long to find the right woman to marry, it’s still congratulations to him and his girlfriend of two years and soon-to-be-wife Moka Fang (Fang Wan).
I’m glad this wedding announcement came with the two secretly registered their marriage and the press got wind of it, and through the marriage register managed to lessen the ickiness of this relationship by finally getting model Moka Fang’s real age. Turns out she’s not 22 years old as reported when she started dating Aaron two years ago but is actually 29 years old today (making her 27 when she and Aaron got together). It cuts down their age difference from 27 years to only 23 years, which makes her a baby when Aaron started his entertainment career in 1990. Wowsers on the cross-generational romance!
