Taiwanese pop diva, Elva Hsiao ( 萧亚轩), was caught on a date with rising star, Kai Ko (柯震东), in a park. The news spread like wild fire on the internet, where 32-year-old Elva and 20-year-old Kai’s romance grew increasingly obvious in fans’ eyes. Despite reportedly behaving like “teenagers sweetly in love” in the park, the pair maintained that they were only good friends.
Dating rumors of Elva and Kai first surfaced in January, when they reportedly went on a movie date together. Eye witness accounts circulated online claiming that Elva and Kai had kissed in a nightclub in February. A male model claimed that Elva had dumped him for Kai, allegations which led to Elva’s dissatisfaction. Kai and Elva both appeared as guest stars in Amei’s (張惠妹) concert in Taipei, Taiwan last month.
On April 10th, Elva and Kai donned sunglasses and dressed casually for a walk outside Sun Yat-sen’s Memorial Hall in Taipei. Kai even walked backwards, making Elva laugh heartily. Kai pulled out his sweater, upon which Elva grabbed onto it, resulting in a “sweater hand-holding moment.” The casually intimate moment was enough to send the Taiwanese paparazzi wild!
When Elva and Kai discovered the presence of reporters in the park, they immediately pulled apart, stating they were only friends.
Elva Hsiao Still Observing Kai Ko
Aside from her successful music career, Elva Hsiao was a quiet millionaire. Last October, Elva’s mother, Ye Xiuling (叶秀玲), purchased a $85 million Yuan luxury 90-square-meter apartment in Taipei’s Ryan Street. The property ownership was registered under Elva’s name. Elva and her brother were set to inherit their mother’s assets, valued at over a billion Yuan.
Kai Ko shot to stardom after Taiwanese movie, You Are the Apple of My Eye <那些年，我们一起追过的女孩> became a mega box-office hit last year. After winning the 2011 Golden Horse Best New Actor Award for his performance in the film, Kai was on his way to fame and fortune. His name became quickly linked with numerous actresses. Due to Kai’s romantic reputation, Elva Hsiao allegedly placed him under “observation mode” despite reportedly dating for months.
Elva Hsiao’s Ex-Boyfriend, Sunny Wang, Shocked
Elva Hsiao’s ex-boyfriend, Sunny Wang (王阳明), was apparently shocked that she may be dating Kai Ko, who was 12 years her junior. Sunny stated, “I am very surprised because I have not seen the two of them together. I’m a little shocked!” Sunny indicated that it was Kai’s youth that shocked him the most in the alleged romance with Elva. Asked about his view on older-woman-younger-man relationships, Sunny responded, “It depends on each person’s need!”
Managers Deny Dating Rumors
Asked about Elva’s park date with Kai, her manager, Jiang Cheng Jin (蒋承缙) stated, “They are only good friends. There is no need to think too much about the matter.” Jiang further added that Aimee Sun (孙芸芸) had suggested a group gathering to drink coffee together. However, Aimee was unable to attend as originally planned.
Kai’s manager, Lin Yi Chen (林怡辰), responded that Kai and Elva were only good friends. “He has been filming a lot of night scenes [for a new movie]. It was a rare opportunity to go out with a group of friends during the day. They are only friends; what more is there to say?” Kai’s manager further added that no photos of the pair actually holding hands were taken. “They were only playing around on the street like friends. There’s nothing to be shocked about!”

Jayne: Kai and Elva do look like a couple in the park photos. In one of the photos, Kai’s arm swung backwards, as if reaching for Elva’s hand. How do you feel about this couple? They remind me very much of Faye Wong and Nicholas Tse, when they were dating.
