Taipei — Back in January, it was reported that Taiwanese actor Eddie Peng was allegedly dating Taiwanese singer-actor Danson Tang. The news was quickly denied by Peng and his management agency and he took to Weibo to post a very strongly worded denial. On March 24, which was Peng’s 39th birthday, fans received yet another confirmation that Peng is indeed single through a most unlikely source. Shawn Yue, Peng’s good friend, went on to Weibo to post a short message wishing Peng a happy birthday.
“Happy birthday, my most beloved Sun Wu Kong [Eddie and Shawn last worked together for the 2017 film Wu Kong, where Eddie played the titular character]. Here’s wishing that you find a partner [and settle down] soon,” Shawn’s message read.
According to 8days.sg, Yue’s direct hint at Peng’s single status was very well-received by fans and netizens alike. Fans of the star went on to the comments section to promote themselves. “I’m single too, you know,” one netizen commented, while another wrote: “Thank you thank you, I’ll immediately register my marriage to Eddie”.
Peng’s love life has mostly remained a mystery despite his being linked to a number of stars over the years including Jolin Tsai and Chinese actress Summer Qing. Controversy arose in 2018 when a photo of a woman hugging Peng from the back was uploaded online. It turned out that the woman was just a fan.
Yue and Peng first met while working together on the 2002 drama, Brave To Love, and have remained close. In 2017, when Yue tied the knot with Taiwanese model-actress Sarah Wang in a private destination wedding, Peng was one of the few celeb guests invited.
