Earlier this week, the Hong Kong media snapped photographs of Zhou Xun (周迅) shopping in the Central district with a tall, mysterious man, who was speculated to be her new romantic interest. The pair seemed to know each other very well, and Zhou Xun’s good friend, Chen Kun (陈坤) was walking alongside them.
Shortly after, Hong Kong reporters called Chen Kun to verify the identity of the mysterious man. Annoyed, Chen Kun snapped, “How did you get my number? Even if Xiao Xun and I go shopping, what’s the problem? I regret picking up your call.” After uttering a word of profanity, he hung up the phone.
When the news circulated, speculation was rife over the identity of the mysterious man and why the usually calm Chen Kun’s hot temper flared. Chen Kun’s representative, Miss Xu, clarified that the mysterious man is actually Chen Kun’s younger brother, Sam, who works as his assistant.
Chen Kun also explained on his Weibo that Zhou Xun and he stayed at the same building, so it is not unusual for both of them to go out together. Regarding the profanity, he joked, “I saw that the highlights [of the news report] was F***! Wow, I’m mighty!”
Despite the clarification, Miss Xu was upset about the twist of words used by the media. “After yesterday’s clarification on Weibo, today’s newspaper shows a different version. This really proves the angles of news reports are always changing. The only nice thing in the entire article are the words, ‘hunky guy’.”
Many fans already knew about the existence of Chen Kun’s younger brother, Sam, and were not surprised when they saw his photos in the news. Fans showed their contempt for the media by making fun of Sam’s sudden popularity.
