Crystal Fung‘s (馮盈盈) sudden announcement of her breakup on Instagram today took many by surprise. Entering the entertainment industry after winning Miss Hong Kong 2016, Crystal has publicized her relationship with her doctor boyfriend, Martin Chung (鍾文浩). This year, the couple moved in together and Crystal had even helped pay Martin’s down payment on his new condo. But living together presented its problems, and the couple decided it’s best to go separate ways.
On Instagram, Crystal wrote, “In our four years together, we have supported each other through all the ups and downs. We saw each other go through many stages of our lives. Starting today, we are no longer a couple but we will still support and wish each other the best in our future.”
Kissing Scene with Jonathan Cheung Was Too Much?
Speculations arose regarding the reason behind Crystal’s breakup. She had mentioned Martin’s jealousy over her onscreen kissing scenes with male co-stars, but as an actress, intimate scenes were sometimes inevitable.
With gossip spreading that Crystal’s steamy shower scene with Jonathan Cheung (張穎康) in The Man Who Kills Troubles <解決師> was the last straw igniting the breakup, Jonathan said, “They are just rumors, and I do not know the reason behind their breakup. In all honesty, my wife was also unhappy. These scenes are painful for our significant others. When Crystal first accepted this role, she didn’t want to film this scene. We tried to avoid less intimacy onscreen and touching each other. But in the end, we had to do the scene. I can only say artistes can be quite powerless sometimes.”
Appearing at the blessing ceremony with Jonathan for their new drama Sinister Beings <逆天奇案>, Crystal clarified the reason behind her breakup. “Rumors are circulating that one of the reasons is my kiss with Jonathan in The Man Who Kills Troubles. This is definitely not the case.”
The 25-year-old actress explained, “We had decided to split up this month. We thought about the decision carefully. Our problems started after we started living together. As the saying goes, it’s much harder to live together. It was a drastic change [in our lifestyles] after moving in together, which required time to adjust. Because of this, we both felt it’s better to go back to being friends. We’re both focusing on our careers, so we can’t deal with [the problems in our relationship] right now.”
