Zheng Shuang Felt Inferior While Dating Hans Zhang
Amid allegations of a secret marriage and rumors that their relationship had gone sour, Chinese actress Zheng Shuang (鄭爽) announced that she had broken up with her boyfriend, mainland Chinese actor Hans Zhang (張翰).
On June 9, Zheng Shuang attended the 20th Annual Shanghai Television Festival, where she appeared at the press conferences for her two upcoming dramas, The Cage of Love <抓住彩虹的男人> and Beauty Private Kitchens <美人私房菜>. During the former press conference, costar Hawick Lau (劉愷威) was congratulated on the birth of his newborn daughter. Zheng Shuang’s response forced all attention back to her.
“Many years ago, I also wanted to get married, but right now, [that dream] has been shattered,” said Zheng Shuang, implying that she and Hans had officially split up.
She and Hans met on the set of Let’s Watch the Meteor Shower Together <一起來看流星雨> in 2009. Rumors that they had become an item followed them through the Meteor Shower sequel and their many subsequent collaborations, culminating in 2013, when Zheng Shuang officially went public with their romance.
Though the public is not quite certain when their relationship began, Zheng Shuang revealed that she often felt inferior when she was dating Hans, especially when she was not involved in filming work of her own. Her feelings of inferiority led to her decision to plastic surgery, as well as many negative moods, which caused greater separation between her and Hans.
“I used to think that if we were together, everything would be happy,” she shared. “But when I wasn’t filming, I was very downcast. I lost more and more self-confidence.”
Previously, Hans expressed sadness over a series of rumors that indicated he and Zheng Shuang had split up, and stated that if they did break up, he would try his best to win her back to his side. When asked about this, Zheng Shuang responded, “I don’t know,” though she did note that she would not mind collaborating with him in the future.
Zheng Shuang also denied the possibility of third-party involvement in the relationship, saying, “The Hans Zhang I know is an extremely faithful guy.”
