“The Alliance” Is on Board with the Ruco Chan and Nancy Wu Ship

The Hong Kong media has been head over heels at the possibility that Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Nancy Wu (胡定欣) could be a couple, having that their rumored relationship was all that was reported when the cast and crew of TVB’s The Alliance <同盟> held its blessing ceremony on Thursday, September 29. Even their costars seem to be on board the “NanCo” ship.

the-alliance-paw-hee-ching“They are compatible!” said Paw Hee-ching (鮑起靜), who stars in The Alliance as Ruco’s mother. The Alliance is also Paw Hee-ching’s first TVB drama. “He’s a handsome man and she’s a beautiful woman! But this is just for promotion, right?”

According to rumors, Ruco and Nancy took their relationship offscreen after collaborating in this year’s hit drama A Fist Within Four Walls <城寨英雄>. Ruco was said to have pursued Nancy in an “old-fashioned, ancient” way, and took her to a concert. The two were spotted on a concert date a few weeks ago, watching Sammi Cheng’s (鄭秀文) live show at the Hong Kong Coliseum.

Upon hearing their dating rumor, The Alliance producer Jazz Boon (文偉鴻) jokingly asked Ruco, “Can you describe to us what kind of ancient methods you used?” Ruco said with a laugh, “I’ve only heard of ancient Chinese medicine.”

In a later interview, Ruco denied dating Nancy, but is thankful for the rumor, as it helps contribute to the promotion of their new drama. Asking if the dating rumors have affected his friendship with Nancy, Ruco said, “Not at all. It’s not like this hasn’t happened to me before. I am actually more happy at the fact that the influence of A Fist Within Four Walls has carried on to The Alliance. Everyone thinks we look compatible as a pair!”

According to their dating rumor, Ruco has been avoiding Nancy on set and acted distant, so they would not attract unwanted attention. Ruco explained, “I’m sure a lot of you know this by now. When I am in deep thought I tend to isolate myself. That is what happens when I’m working. My relationship with Nancy is fine!”

Nancy to Portray Ruco’s Protector

Not much is known about the story of The Alliance. Jazz Boon has kept the creative production under tight wraps. What is known, however, is that Jazz has called back A Fist Within Four Walls action choreographer Philip Kwok (郭追) to be the drama’s choreographer, and that the show will feature elements of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Krav Maga, gun fu, and more. Paw Hee-ching will portray a character that is inspired by the female emperor, Wu Zetian.

Already a week into production, Ruco and Nancy said the show is even more action-packed and thrilling than A Fist Within Four Walls. Ruco shared that he will have some intimate scenes with Nancy, revealing, “Some of those intimate scenes include really close contact action sequences, such as doing judo.”

Asking if he’s afraid that he’ll end up touching Nancy inappropriately, Ruco said, “Not at all. We are all professional actors. With this understanding in mind, the outcome of the shot will be even better.”

      @janet72 i love this couple too. They look good together. Saw the interviews and Nancy has hinted that she’s open to him chasing her but he seems pretty cool. I’ll be devastated if he’s already secretly attached.

        @isay Nancy’s friends, Elaine Yiu and Mandy Wong, seem careful in their responses over the romantic rumors too. Perhaps Nancy may be interested in Ruco.

        @jayne I get that feeling from Nancy.

        Nancy just got out of a relationship. Would Ruco be the rebound?

    Don’t really care for them as a couple or not. They seem pretty bland.

    But Paw Hee Ching!!! I love her as an actress. She looks great.

  8. Nancy is her desperate self and wants to be attached to Ruco but I’m afraid she’s too wild and tainted for Ruco’s taste and liking. I’m disgusted that the producer, Jazz, his inconsiderate colleagues and Nancy’s friends as well as Nancy herself all persist in forcing the issue on Ruco. Please show some class and have a heart! Leave him alone! Love cannot be forced!!!! Pulrrrzz. Such ignorance and so insensitive!!

  9. I’d seriously would fear for Ruco and be worried sick about Ruco’s parents if Ruco were to hook up with Nancy Wu. She’s self centred, conceited, pretentious and can be very mean to her colleagues especially those whom she felt threatened by. And rightfully, she should feel threatened by many. Who, but Nancy Wu, goes around telling people that she feels qualified to enter in a beauty pageant?! And that she’s a pretty girl. Common, seriously!! I feel sorry for her!

      @jokercanadian Don’t like Nancy Wu but you are pretty precise about why you dislike. Do you know her?

      Not many pleasant things was said about her when she dated Kenneth Ma. He is certainly too good for her. Ditto too Ruco. Hope the tales about them dating is not true.

        @isay let’s say just take care and exercise caution what you post on social media. Many businesses peruse the social accounts of potential employees as a part of assessment for recruitment.

        @isay sorry I had to split up my comments into 2 parts and they got out of order after Posting. And I posted the first part as a response to kangaroo and mistakenly posted the 2nd part to you. Hope this makes more sense. Not as a warning but as a friendly refresher.

        @kangaroo I’m trying again… you might be asking me the question in jest but I will answer anyways. Don’t personally know her but sure know her as a person … by observing her behaviour responses in interviews and interactions with others. You’d be surprised at how much we reveal through our body language and speech. Been alive and in psychology profession for a long time.
