Jiang Jinfu Admits to Hitting Girlfriend
Twenty-seven-year-old Mainland Chinese actor, Jiang Jinfu (蔣勁夫), who has been hailed as the next Hu Ge (胡歌), went to Japan to study this year and met his Japanese girlfriend there. After a recent period of absence from the public eye, he admitted to his 17 million Sina Weibo followers that he had in fact hit his girlfriend, Haruka Nakaura, after she posted photos of her bruises on Instagram.
The Xuan-Yuan Sword: Scar of Sky <軒轅劍之天之痕> star also apologized to her and her family, “For whatever reason, I should not do it. I am ashamed of my actions. I will not make any excuses. I will take responsibility for my actions and accept punishment.”
More than 216,000 Weibo users have replied to his domestic violence by calling him trash, his friends have retaliated by posting messages on Weibo saying that his girlfriend also caused problems in the relationship.
One of Jinfu’s friends, while indicating that he was not trying to help Jinfu clear his name but that some things needed to be said, revealed a number of stories about Jinfu and Nakaura’s relationship. According to this friend, Nakaura grew up in the United States and graduated from Ohio University. She had also desperately chased after Jinfu before they started dating. This friend also said that because Jinfu can’t speak English or Japanese that well, he would ask his friend’s wife to help translate things into English, one of which was a breakup letter to Nakaura. Jinfu wanted to end the relationship because he felt that his girlfriend liked to go out and club too much. He had also bought her many shoes and handbags, but felt that she didn’t contribute anything to their relationship. Later, however, Nakaura apologized and Jinfu forgave her. Before long the girlfriend quit her job and moved in with Jinfu. She also told him that she was pregnant, even though the test results seemed to indicate otherwise.
In his post, Jinfu’s friend acknowledged that Jinfu was wrong in hitting his girlfriend, but also said she herself was suspicious. The post does not say what Jinfu’s reason was for hitting her.
Two other friends of Jinfu also spoke out. One was a contestant on The Rap of China <中國新說唱>, Yu Jia Meng (于嘉萌), who revealed that Jinfu had taken Nakaura to meet his parents, in preparation to talk about getting married. “At the start, I thought that he had found the right person. Not long after, I heard from my friend that Jinfu had told him (after having drunk a lot and crying) that the girl was not pregnant and had told her friends that she would not have a baby with a Chinese man. I felt that this is a fatal blow to anyone.”
Another friend and blogger said that Jinfu is very foolish in relationships, as he had tattooed Nakaura’s name on his arm and took her home to meet his parents, when it was still early in their relationship. “Violence is definitely not right! But I really believe that when it comes down to it, it’s not just one person’s problem. Why was it so long after the incident before it was revealed? Let’s wait for the follow up.” This seems to point out that more is to come.
