Taiwanese comedian Jiu Kong has recently admitted that he is preparing to marry his girlfriend 17 years his junior.
Jiu Kong, 47, has been dating his girlfriend, an industry outsider, since 2010.
The couple enjoys a stable relationship, wearing couple outfits and travelling together whenever Jiu Kong has to leave the country for work.
Lately, Jiu Kong confessed that his friends and family are all pushing him to get married, making him feel pressurised. However, in consideration of his girlfriend and her family’s feelings, he does not dare to reveal his marriage plans publicly when they are not even set in stone.
The artiste expressed that he is thankful for the public’s concern, and promised to inform everyone if there is good news in the future.
As Jiu Kong also started selling off his collection of Chinese paintings recently, netizens have speculated that he is trying to raise money to give his future wife a glamorous wedding.
Singer Richie Ren, the comedian’s long-time friend, has also expressed that he is willing to sell one of his houses to Jiu Kong at a discounted price, so that the latter can settle down.
