While he did not wish her “Happy birthday,” Zhou Xun’s husband showed support by promoting an event she took part in.
Zhou Xun (周迅) celebrated her birthday on October 18, but her Taiwanese-American actor husband Archie Kao‘s (高聖遠) silence fueled already rife speculation about tension in the couple’s marriage. While Archie did not send birthday greetings to his wife, on the following morning he shared an image of Zhou Xun’s charity event poster “One Night” on his personal Weibo, along with a caption expressing his gratitude and respect for her contribution to “making the world a better place”.
Wed in a surprise ceremony in 2014, communication problems and cultural differences were soon rumored to have caused a rift in the pair’s marriage. One big issue was how they had to spend much time apart due to their respective careers, since Zhou Xun worked on projects in Mainland China while Archie was based in United States and Taiwan.
Netizens saw Archie’s post as a sign that Archie supports his wife and left comments hoping that the couple’s relationship is still going strong, reminding him to “take good care of Xiao Xun (Zhou Xun’s nickname)!” Some also spoke up for Archie, noting that it was reasonable for him to post only on October 19 (Friday), since it would have been Thursday afternoon in the United States where he was based.
