Ruco Chan Doesn’t Want to Talk About Phoebe Sin: Leave Her Alone

Are Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Phoebe Sin (單文柔) official? Ruco’s on-screen mother, Nina Paw (鮑起靜), may have blurted out the answer.

At a radio show to promote their new TV drama The Unholy Alliance <同盟>—which Ruco had to skip out on last minute—the former ATV actress may have accidentally revealed Ruco’s currently relationship status.

“He’s busy!” said Nina when asked why Ruco wasn’t available to promote the show with her. In the new drama, Nina and Ruco play mother and son, their second time since ATV’s 2007 drama Stupid Child <笨小孩>. At the mention that Ruco got upset when rumored girlfriend Phoebe Sin was mentioned at an earlier promotion event, Nina said, “It’s true that he rarely talks about those things with us. Sometimes I do get curious myself and ask him, like: ‘Are you dating now?’ ‘Yes, mom!’ You know? Those kinds of questions.”

Did Nina just accidentally reveal that Ruco is dating?

“No! I’m not trying to reveal anything!” Nina said quickly. “I’m just thinking that since my son is already all grown up he should be dating. That’s why when you guys asked, I just assumed he was. I would ask these questions on WhatsApp, and he would reply with a smiley face. I actually don’t know anything!

In a phone interview with Ruco later on that day, the actor explained that he missed the radio show because he had to take his mother to a doctor’s appointment. Mentioning that Nina may have accidentally revealed his relationship status with Phoebe, Ruco laughed and said, “Haha! This mom is silly. I just told her that if I was dating I’d bring my girlfriend to visit her!”

He then clarified that Nina had always wanted him to find a girlfriend, and at one point even tried to set him up with someone. Asking when Ruco plans to visit Nina with Phoebe, he said, “If there’s an opportunity for collaboration, they’ll probably meet then.”

Ever since dating rumors between them started earlier this year, Ruco avoided talking about Phoebe. He explained, “I don’t want to talk about her because I’m worried about how the reports would write about her. If it gets too negative, it can affect her life’s image. She would have it much worse than me. I can’t make her go through that.” (You’re very protective!) “There’s no other way. She still hasn’t given the audience anything to work with yet. It’s not like me. You guys can write about me. I have a safeguard. It’s not hard to admit [dating], but it is all about timing. If everyone’s happy, then it’ll naturally happen. Time can prove so many things.”

    He always dodge questions and mislead the public instead of giving honest, straightforward answers. It’s not hard to admit [dating], but it is all about timing. Oh, how does admit to dating have anything to do with timing?

    If he doesn’t want to disclose his romantic relationship to the public, he could have simply tell the media that he wants to keep his love life private and don’t wish to discuss it any further.

    All these question dodging reminds me of when Raymond Lam used to dodged questions about Karena Ng five years ago, only to finally admit their relationship when “things got negative for Karena”.

    I don’t get why it’s difficult for some people and easier for others. How is Ruco (possibly) dating Phoebe any different from say, Edwin Siu dating Priscilla Wong?

    I don’t get it why Ruco is evasive and so uptight and sensitive when asked about his dating SMY. What has timing got to do with saying that you are dating her. Everyone knows he is in a relationship. Their body language says it all especially during the furniture shopping episode. Mere friends don’t behave like that!

    SMY is not so helpless and not such a newbie. Just look at the way she handles the interviews. Don’t think Ruco needs to be so protective like a father. As #unknown says. He could just tell the media that he wants to keep his love life private instead of going in circles.

    Take a leaf from Kenneth Ma/J. Wong – they are so open, relaxed and sweet about seeing each other although they have both not said that they are officially boyfriend/girlfriend.

    I am a great fan of Ruco but his recent behaviour is eroding my admiration for him including how awkwardly he behaved with Nancy Wu in the recent interview to promote the Unholy Alliance.

      I agree with @myozzie Ruco’s recent behaviour is eroding my admiration for him too. I feel that he should handle things more calmly.

        People should just resoect n leave his personal life alone. His gf , unlike,Priscilla n Jacqueline Wong, is practically unknown n at a stage of starting to build her career . Understandably he wants to protect her from any unnec negative news. Besides, he did appeal to the reporters to give them some space for their relationship to devpt, Uncertain if their relationship will continue to blossom or flop like Tony Hung’s and Natalie’s, I think it is wise of him to tread carefully.

        agree
        Crazy fans are still attacking the couple in UT, IG,WB.
        That may be his reason for not opening their relationship-not the right timing. He refused to mention Phoebe might have make the situation award, but if he didn’t do so, the terrible media would focus on the topic without end and that would make Nancy more award.
        Respect his private life and only focus on his performance which never disappoints me.

        I agree with @joyful that he should handle things more calmly. I also think that people should respect his personal life and give him space. But I am disappointed at how he reacts to the whole issue – at some point there was an awkward pause during the interview and nancy tried to save the situation by diverting to another issue. I think he made it awkward for himself and nancy. I also cannot take it that he is now so cold and uncomfortable with nancy if you watch some clips of the interviews on Unholy Alliance. He won’t even look at her. To think that both have been so warm and good friends and partners before this as shown in the videos prior to news of his dating. I am not anti Ruco/pro nancy. I am a great Ruco fan but his current behaviour towards nancy is just not quite acceptable. Come on Chin-pang. Having a gf doesn’t mean you have to act this way.

        I think Nancyis giving Ruco the cold treatment, too. Prior to the Unholy Alliance Promotion Event, Nancy was arranged to stand next to Ruco for the Big Big Channel event. She ignored him totally and chose to be friendly to Wayne Lye and others. At another interview, she also ignored him and gave all her attention to Joel and Elaine. Her unfriendly behaviour towards him could have attributed to their awkwardness towards each other.

        @loveruco Well, how do you expect Nancy to feel when Chin-pang publicly said that he had never liked, pursued or dated her. I think that greatly embarassed and hurt Nancy. Even if that was the case, he could have just said that they were just very good friends and on-screen partners. No need to make her feel bad and not even give her ‘a bit of face’ just to drive home a point.

        I think he did clarify that they were only on-screen lovers and he had not pursued her. But I dont remember him saying that he never liked her. Nancy herself also reiterated that they were only onscreen lovers and nothing more than that.

        @myozzie
        Well, great fan of Ruco, when and where did you see Ruco publicly said that he had never liked, pursued or date Nancy? In all his interviews about the rumours, he politely praised Nancy, saying that she is his good friend and co-worker but denied they were dating. After his dating Phoebe was revealed, Nancy also publicly admitted that Ruco didn’t date her and they are only on-screen partners.
        Yes, he has room for improvement in dealing with the media, but I think he didn’t want to mention Phoebe in front of Nancy in order not to embarrass her. In a sole interview in the same event he did talk about Phoebe just at Nancy’s absence.
        Ruco and Nancy are good on screen partners only and their rumours were promotion gimmicks which should end now.

    Think he could have handle the situation better. Not talking about it won’t help. Like @unknown said, he should just say he want his private like private instead of saying what he said. But then what do I know.. I’m not a celebrity! Ha! Do feel bad for the girl though.

    We love speculations, don’t we? Guess speculations add a lot of spices to everything! I have watched a few recent promos on Unholy Alliance on Youtube.com, and can’t help noticing the ‘distancing’ demeanour between Ruco and Nancy unlike in AFWFW’s promos;both were playful and cheeky in a positive sense, on each other. I speculate something must have transpired between them.

    I enjoy watching Ruco’s acting stints in dramas but who he is dating or not dating, is not my concern. And I do feel strongly that it’s his perogative to conceal or to expose his love life. Sooner or later no news is defintely good news. Guess he is also not a ‘no brainer’ kind;weighing in the pros and cons of exposing it all.
