Singapore actor Xu Bin announced on his Instagram account last night that he would be tying the knot. His announcement came in the form of a video, in which he said, “Everyone, I have some very blissful news to share. I am getting married.”
The 28-year-old did not share any information about his wife-to-be Yi Fei, but said that he would be holding a press conference on Tuesday, where he will answer any questions about his upcoming nuptials.
Until then, fans get to glimpse his bride in a picture posted on Xu’s artiste management agency NoonTalk Media’s Instagram page (@noontalk_ media) on Monday night. In the photo, the couple are seen decked out in full wedding gear on a beach in the Maldives.
A short video from that wedding photo shoot was also shared.
The actor, who was born in China, is known for his sunny good looks and for starring in popular Channel 8 TV dramas such as long-form sitcom 118 (2014) and nursing drama You Can Be An Angel 2 (2016).
He would also be the first of Mediacorp’s heavily promoted stable of “8 Dukes” to get married.
The 8 Dukes is a group of the station’s hottest young male stars – Desmond Tan, Shane Pow, Ian Fang, Romeo Tan, Aloysius Pang, Zhang Zhenhuan and Jeffrey Xu.
