Post-Marriage Chiling Lin Has Plans to Step Down from the Stage
Dubbed as Taiwan’s wedding of the century. Taiwan’s top supermodel Chiling Lin (林志玲) tied the knot with EXILE member Akira last month in Tainan. The wedding was streamed and broadcasted all over Taiwan, just as if it was the royal wedding.
In the weeks since her marriage, Chiling has scaled down her public presence, only making occasional appearances for fashion events and brands. In an interview with China Newsweek, Chiling hinted that being a performer is no longer her priority in life, as she wishes to focus on her charity career and her family.
“I need to focus on my life, including my family, and manage my charity career well,” she said. “I’ll have no regrets! If the stage lights turn off now, then it will be my time to step down. I will end the show with a deep bow, with deep gratitude.”
A combination of love and courage were what dictated Chiling to marry Akira. “The timing was right, and I had to courageously fight for my happiness.”
At her 40th birthday five years ago, Chiling had said that she planned on retiring after turning 43 years old. She postponed those plans after coming across a rare job opportunity. Now that she’s married to Akira, it appears that Chiling is now able to fulfill her lifelong wish of living happily with the love of her life.
