Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) has often been criticized for having multi-year relationships with ex-girlfriends, Maggie Shiu (邵美琪) and Gigi Leung (梁詠琪), that did not result in marriage. Fans blamed Ekin for wasting the women’s youths. Allegedly, his breakup with Gigi Leung was attributed to his reluctance to get married, while Gigi was looking to settle down. As Ekin’s relationship with Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) entered its sixth year, the public became increasingly concerned as to the pair’s marriage intentions.
Many modern couples found happiness together, without abiding by the traditional structure of marriage. In March, Yoyo had professed that she and Ekin did not plan to get married or have children in the future. Despite this inclination, Yoyo was still frequently asked questions about marriage in her public appearances.
In an interview with the cast of Bride Wannabes <盛女愛作戰>, Yoyo was asked when she and Ekin will get married. Yoyo replied they were still in the cohabitation stage. Yoyo said, “Although I appear to be very strong in my appearance, I am a ‘little woman.’ I like to see him everyday! Couples in love should glue to each other!” Yoyo had markedly reduced her drama output since dating Ekin, working less and spending more time with her boyfriend.
When Yoyo was 17 years old, she had lived together with her ex-boyfriend. Since her grandmother also lived together with them at the time, her ex-boyfriend complained of the awkward situation. He also complained that she did not do enough household chores. Yoyo broke up with him because she felt that her ex-boyfriend did not love her enough.
Yoyo praised Ekin, “He is perfect, a boyfriend with a 100% score!” The couple got along well living together and did not have any complaints towards each other.

Jayne: Aside from celebrities, whose love lives are intensely scrutinized by fans, we as normal people are frequently asked by our parents and friends as to when marriage will occur. I guess marriage is seen as the “next step” in life, as similiar to having children. Where we grow, age, and as in getting a job as an adult, we are expected to start our own family in the traditional sense. Marriage and having children are similiar to a rites of passage into a stage of adulthood, thus a common question asked.
I can see how tiring the question must be for Yoyo though, especially if Ekin and her intentions have not changed. If a couple makes a decision due to social pressure and not truly what they desire, it may not be a good thing.JayneStars Media LLC reserves all copyrights.
