Joe Chen (陳喬恩) joined the reality show, “Meeting Mr. Right 2” (女儿们的恋爱2), where it features four celebrity couples and their fathers’ commentary about their relationships. She is the only single member and was set up by the show to be paired up with Malaysian painter, Alan Chen (曾伟昌). It was the finale episode today and for Joe Chen and Alan Chen they have to decide if they want to be together.
Before Joe Chen heads out to meet Alan Chen, she expresses, “I didn’t take my relationships to share it in front of the viewers. I think since I’ve already taken this step, I must respect my heart and continue on with each step.” She then musters up the courage and heads out to the bridge to see if Alan Chen will show up.
As she walks closer, she sees Alan Chen from afar with his hands behind his back. It turns out he was holding a bunch of red roses. At this point, Joe Chen is already teary eyed. Alan Chen goes in to hug her and then says, “Let’s be together.” Joe Chen immediately says, “Alright.” Alan Chen then kisses her forehead. Joe Chen’s father nodded his head to show his approval of this couple.
In the backstage interview, Joe Chen is seen with tears rolling down her eyes and says, “Love didn’t give up on me, having a person who can be so brave for me.” Alan Chen then says, “Being with her, it will attract many people’s attention, a lot of people’s comments. I’ve never walked this path before, but I am wiling to overcome it.”
Once the episode aired, there were some conflicting comments on the success of this new couple. Some people thought, “This is scripted.”, but there were also fans who said, “It felt like that couple from last season was acting, but this couple doesn’t seem like it to me.”, “Even if it’s scripted, watching them still makes me happy. I still hope Joe Chen can find happiness.”
