On January 28, 2013, Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) and Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) secretly got married in Toyko, Japan. Forty relatives and close friends attended the wedding banquet that took place in a French restaurant, Aimee Vibert. Their low-profile wedding was somewhat a success, considering it might have been kept secret if it was not for a netizen who uploaded an image of the banquet’s seating plan on Weibo.
Following their wedding, Ekin and Yoyo stayed in Japan for a three-day honeymoon before returning to Hong Kong. Yoyo’s manager, Ali Tang, told the media that many of their friends did not even know it was a wedding until they reached the restaurant. Did Ekin pay for all the airfare and hotel expenses? “No, everyone treated the trip as a vacation. We stayed in different hotels. Many people did not even have enough time to prepare a wedding gift.”
Ekin’s parents were among the forty guests at the wedding, but Yoyo’s parents were absent. Ali revealed, “Yoyo’s mom has already passed away, and her dad experiences mobility inconvenience, so the groom’s parents were also their representatives.”
Jerry Lamb (林曉峰) was the wedding host of the night. He laughed and said, “When Yoyo was putting the ring on Ekin’s finger, she had to take a minute to think about which hand was his left hand. It was hilarious.” As Ekin read out his wedding vows, tears filled his eyes. Yoyo soon broke into tears after seeing her husband cry. The moment was truly memorable for the loving couple.
Upon their return from Tokyo, Ekin and Yoyo faced the surrounding media with all smiles at the Hong Kong International Airport. They held hands tightly, and the rings were evident on their fingers. When Ekin was asked about his mood, he replied “I have expressed this before. Thank you to everyone who has wished us. Some friends could not attend our wedding, so we want to celebrate and thank more friends later on.”
Yoyo expressed that they chose to get married in Japan because it was where they went for their first vacation. Asked if the couple is planning to have a baby soon, Ekin said, “It depends on whether or not Yoyo can take care of a baby!”
Yoyo Mung to Film for HKTV?
After their marriage, both Ekin and Yoyo will continue to work hard on their careers. Allegedly, Yoyo is scheduled with TVB through March this year. Afterwards, she will be heading to CTI’s HKTV station under a contract requiring her to film three dramas in two years. Each episode will earn her $50,000 HKD. However, Yoyo’s manager is currently in Shanghai. Ali revealed, “Everything is still in discussion. They must wait until I return to Hong Kong at the end of February to decide further.”
