Since Kevin Cheng’s (鄭嘉穎) popularity skyrocketed in Hong Kong and mainland China last year, his love life has been under intense scrutiny. Tabloids frequently speculate whether he and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) might have a chance to develop their relationship further, with frequent reconciliation rumors in the air. However, according to Face Magazine, Kevin Cheng and Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心> costar, Annie Liu (劉心悠), have been dating for 3 months!
Pursuing “Goddess Annie”
It was rumored that Kevin had broken up with mainland model, Jenny Xu (徐靖雯), who was photographed spending time at his home, last year. Shortly afterward, he began filming Bu Bu Jing Xin and allegedly started pursuing Annie Liu within one month of filming. Realizing Annie’s preference to eat plain foods, Kevin ordered his assistant to prepare an extra serving of soup for her. Kevin had reportedly prepared a mushroom noodle soup especially for Annie to eat as well.
Annie professed that she possessed an introverted personality, which made meeting men difficult. Since she was not the type of woman to rush into relationships, it reportedly took Kevin one year to build up their friendship. The cast of Bu Bu Jing Xin were reunited at promotional events when the drama was broadcast in Hunan TV in September 2011. Last October, the drama was aired in Taiwan. After seeing each other at these events, Kevin started sending text messages to Annie. Allegedly, he unabashedly referred to Annie as “Goddess” in the messages, while openly praising her beauty in front of other people.
Since entering the entertainment industry for 6 years, 30-year-old Annie was romantically rumored with Filmko owner, Wang Haifeng (王海峰), and former costar, Blue Lan (藍正龍). Allegedly, Annie possessed a boyfriend in Taiwan for many years, whose true existence was never confirmed. The former design major, who had studied in Canada, was known as a “pure existence” who had few rumors. Annie enjoyed running and had participated in six annual marathons.
Kevin Cheng Denies Dating Annie Liu
While tabloids claimed that Kevin and Annie have gone on secret dates over the last three months, both Kevin and Annie denied the dating rumors. At the Filmart 2012 expo, Kevin told Face Magazine, “You’re crazy! You’re crazy! Please don’t frame me!” Despite the strong words, Kevin laughed widely in his denial.
Kevin noted that Annie had her own assistant and did not need him to take care of her eating preferences. Emphasizing that they were only colleagues, Kevin told Apple Daily, “Of course not; I did not prepare any ‘love noodles’! I did not send any “Goddess” text messages. The magazine used their imagination for such details. I do not know to what stage ‘the story’ has advanced to. It’s very confusing!” Furthermore, Kevin stated that after the filming of Bu Bu Jing Xin, he only saw Annie once at a Hong Kong promotional event and did not have any personal dates together.
Annie Liu Uncertain About Advancement Opportunities With Kevin Cheng
While Annie Liu praised Kevin Cheng for being a good actor, she denied that he had pursued her. She noted that she liked Bu Bu Jing Xin’s “Fourteenth Prince” Lin Gengxin (林更新). As to whether Kevin had asked the director to increase her scenes in Bu Bu Jing Xin, Annie said that she did not feel that her scenes increased and suggested asking the director for a response instead.
Asked whether there were any advancement opportunities with Kevin, Annie said, “I do not know.” Asked if she liked the type of man that Kevin represented, Annie replied that she liked filial men. She praised Kevin for his acting. “I only know this much about him; I have very limited knowledge about him.”
However, after their romantic rumors surfaced, Annie and Kevin have been in touch, in which she invited him to see her in a theatrical production. Last month, they appeared at a perfume promotional event in Hong Kong together.

Jayne: If we take Kevin and Annie’s words at face value, then perhaps they may not have dated.
Does Annie’s personality fit what Kevin is looking for in a woman? Possibly, since he said he was interested in intelligent and beautiful woman, someone who is mature and not too difficult to get along with.
It would be very interesting to see what the follow-up details on this story development would be.
