Rumored Couple Ruco Chan and Nancy Wu Get Awkwardly Pulled Apart
Things got pretty awkward on Monday night, when rumored couple Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Nancy Wu (胡定欣) showed up at an event for the new skincare brand Harmonie. Not only did they not interact with each other as usual, they even avoided standing next to each other during group photos. Just as reporters were about to ask Ruco and Nancy to take some photos together, Nancy’s assistant pulled her away, making the moment awkward.
Ruco and Nancy got themselves wrapped in a rather serious dating rumor when the paps leaked photos of them eating dessert soup together last week. Ruco was seen driving Nancy and her assistant home, after they stopped by a dessert soup shop for some late-night snack. The rumored couple are currently shooting their new TVB drama The Alliance <同盟>, and Ruco would drive Nancy home almost every night.
“We’ve been working everyday,” said Nancy, when reporters asked about her ‘developments’ with Ruco. “There’s no development.” (You guys refused to do interviews together!) “We’re just following what the organizer’s have arranged for us. I personally don’t mind.”
Nancy said the paparazzi’s “bust” did not affect her friendship with Ruco, and that he still drives her home after work. Her friends and colleagues take turn driving her as well. “Everyone knows that I can’t drive now because my license got suspended. We always have late nights, and when we have outdoor photography, it’s usually far away. You wouldn’t just leave me out there with no way to get back home!” (Ruco deserves some extra points.) “He really is a gentleman.”
Pointing out that Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) has said he would like to see their relationship develop into something greater, Nancy said, “You’ll get to see that development in our characters for the show. About 90 percent of my scenes are with him.”
In the other side of the room, Ruco echoed Nancy’s responses. Asking why they didn’t take photos together, Ruco said, “I don’t even know what’s going on right now, but it’s probably because we’ve taken too many photos together before.” (You guys aren’t doing interviews together either.) “I really don’t know. Maybe they don’t want me to say something wrong.”
When reporters commented that it would be a waste if they did not date, Ruco laughed awkwardly and said, “I don’t know how to respond to that. Nancy is a great girl, of course, but I have problems.” (What kind of problems?) “I’m strange in the sense that I’m too focused on my work. I don’t want to distract myself from that.” (Nancy said you’re a gentleman.) “Everyone at [TVB] are gentlemen. I’m just following their example.”
Ruco said he does not like talking about his rumor with Nancy, as he does not want their current relationship to be affected. “I don’t want things to get awkward between us, and I don’t want it to affect work. I want to maintain our current relationship right now as great colleagues and partners. Of course, if there are feelings, we can date. It’s not like my contract prohibits it. However, I feel that work is more important right now. I’ve been getting so many questions like these, I don’t even know what to respond anymore.”
