Both currently single, Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) allegedly generated romantic sparks after filming TVB drama, The Apothecary <大藥坊>. It all started when Natalie’s good friend, Jazz Lam (林子善), acted as a matchmaker and frequently dragged them out on meals together. Through regular interaction, Ruco and Natalie’s good feelings intensified.
Natalie’s previous relationship with Amigo Chui (崔建邦) suffered hurtful bumps before finally coming to an end half a year ago. Reportedly, Amigo betrayed her several times, cheating on her with other women. Seeing Natalie’s heartbroken situation, close friends urged her to move on to find a better man. However, Amigo allegedly continued to latch onto to her, resulting in a rocky on-and-off relationship.
Ruco and Natalie first developed a good impression of each other when filming The Other Truth <真相> in 2010. However, their relationship experienced no progress since Natalie was still with Amigo and Ruco was dating ATV beauty queen, Eunis Yiu (姚佳雯).
As a good friend, Jazz tried to set up many dates for Natalie, including diamond bachelor Kenneth Ma (馬國明). Reportedly, actor Stephen Wong (黃嘉樂) also liked Natalie and constantly offered to drive her to and from work. Unable to completely break her ties with Amigo, Natalie treated other men only as friends. An insider revealed, “Meeting Amigo was bad luck for Natalie. She missed out on many chances of a good marriage.”
After Natalie officially broke up with Amigo several months ago, Jazz dived in and immediately introduced her to Ruco. The source continued, “While filming The Apothecary together, Jazz thought Ruco and Natalie are a great match. Ruco has a good impression of Natalie, and Jazz constantly praised her in front of him. He even told Ruco about her hurtful relationship with Amigo, which led to much sympathy.”
Hot Pot Date
Before long, Ruco and Natalie started to spend time frequently together without Jazz’s initiation. On March 14, the cast of The Apothecary headed to Sai Kung for a hot pot dinner. Preferring to keep their budding relationship a secret, Ruco and Natalie arrived separately to avoid speculation. Although Natalie left earlier that night, she reportedly texted Ruco right after entering her car.
Asked about her rumors with Ruco, Natalie replied, “We’re not an onscreen couple in The Apothecary. I mainly share scenes with Raymond Wong (黃浩然), and barely film with Ruco. We were supposed to have a rectangular relationship, but sadly it was deleted!”
Natalie also denied eating out with Ruco after work, and claimed she barely sees him around. When the hot pot dinner was mentioned, Natalie pointed out there were others present as well. Despite her denial, she did not omit chances of getting together with Ruco, “If I see him more often, I’ll think about it! Hahaha!”
