Gillian Chung on Why She Fell in Love with Husband, Michael Lai

Mainland Chinese reality TV show, Parenting Class <爸媽學前班>, features celebrity couples learning how to become good parents. Although newlyweds Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) and Michael Lai (賴弘國) do not have kids yet, they are also taking part in the reality show. Perhaps the couple hopes to pick up tips from experienced parents to prepare for children in the near future. Gillian, who seldomly talks about her romantic life with the public, openly spoke and shared about her relationship with Michael.

Gillian has had quite a rocky road in the love arena. After the photo scandal with Edison Chen (陳冠希) in 2008, Gillian was rumored to have dated Juno Mak (麥浚龍) and was later in a relationship with Korean movie producer, Kwon. Despite her tumultuous love life, Gillian finally found her happiness with Michael. The couple met in 2017 through mutual friends.

Gillian revealed on the show that she was attracted to Michael because of his loving nature. “I noticed his attitude towards work and how he was so kind and approachable to his patients. When I am not feeling well sometimes, he would be extremely attentive and gentle.” Michael’s simplicity and genuineness were also factors that attracted Gillian. “He is very innocent. I initially thought I was a pretty simple and naïve person, but he is even more innocent than I am. As a rather unassuming person myself to say that someone else is naïve gives you a pretty good idea about how innocent he really is.”
