It’s official: Lee Teng is attached. On Valentine’s Day, the Taiwan-born TV host posted a photo of himself being led down a street in Korea by a woman wearing a traditional hanbok.
In an interview with Toggle, the 34-year-old confirmed that she’s his girlfriend: “We’ve actually been dating for a while. I wanted to post something meaningful to wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day, so I decided on this photo.”
The lucky lady is Gina Lin, 27, who’s also a Taiwanese based in Singapore.
Fittingly, it was Instagram that brought the two together. “You know there’s an ‘Explore’ tab on Instagram where they show you photos from your friend’s friends? I happened to check that one day and thought that this girl was pretty cute,” he told Toggle.
As luck had it, Gina was his younger sister Rainnie’s friend, and the latter was more than happy to play Cupid.
While they’ve known each other for more than four years, they’ve only been dating since last October. “She’s not from showbiz, so part of the reason why we took so long to get together is because I’m very busy with work and couldn’t spend a lot of time together,” he said.
“It took some mutual understanding for us to get to where we are today.”
Is marriage on the cards? “I’d like to get married before I turn 40, but we haven’t talked about it yet so I’m not sure what she thinks,” he admitted.
