Bob Lam (林盛斌) invited Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) to his show (人夫放假約出去滾) as a guest and he talked about his dating history with his wife, Phoebe Sin (單文柔), while having hot pot together.
In 2018, Ruco announced his marriage and held a wedding banquet in same October. In the following year, their daughter, Quinta was born. When mentioned about his first encounter with Phoebe, he replied he was one of the judges in 2016 Ms Hong Kong Pageant. (Is it love at first sight?) Yes, but I do not like her very much since we experience a lot together. What attracts me is I feel Phoebe is very pitiful. She lacks of confidence and it makes me want to protect her and increase her confidence. Honestly speaking, Phoebe is less attractive in the past as she is skinner now. We get to know each other through the company’s events and other activities. We then keep in touch via Instagram.”
Asking about his past love history, Ruco confessed he wanted to woo beautiful girls and obtain their contact number during his young days but there were many issues: “In fact, television directors are wooing them as well and some actresses are even television producers’ girlfriends. Thus, we must be extra careful in this sector.” After knowing Phoebe, he felt she was a pure and good girl and could become a simple man whenever with her: “Actually, we might not settle down and have a child quickly. Somehow, the media know about our relationship and the surrounding become the catalyst in our development which increases our trust for each other.”
At the time, Nancy Wu (胡定欣) and he became an on-screen couple because of A Fist Within Four Walls (城寨英雄) drama, and we went for stage performances as a couple team frequently. As Ruco and Phoebe were discovered in the same vehicle at the Peak and he denied about the romance, Phoebe was slammed by their fans as “third party”. He said: “At the point, I was filming Succession War (天命) series in Mainland China and she had absolute trust in me when I told her to stay at home. I felt very guilty as it was not her fault.”
After the scandal was over, Ruco planned to marry Phoebe and she rejected his first marriage proposal as she felt it was too fast to settle down, after dating for 2 years. He said: “I feel I am alright whenever we are together. I realise she dislike handsome guys and I do not feel I am very good looking. Sometimes, I wonder what she is thinking about. Once, I even thought about buying an expensive ring but it turns out that she likes handmade stuff. It represents sincerity and I do not feel it is old-fashioned. Phoebe rejected my first marriage proposal as she assumed I was playing around. Phoebe told me that I have good acting skills as I am TV King after all.”
After 6 months later, Ruco proposed to her again and said: “I cannot lose this time. I placed the ring on her finger and she pretended nothing happened upon waking up. This method works and Sinister Beings (逆天奇案) drama used my idea. I folded a ring to Rosina Lam (林夏薇) and on-screen writer indeed know me very well. (Your baby plan?) Phoebe was pregnant when we had wedding photo shoot in England: “It arrives at a right timing.” It is obvious they are enjoying a blissful family life.
