Jin Chen (金晨) just can’t catch a break. Back in September, the actress was rumored to be dating Jeffrey Tung after they were allegedly caught on a date together. The two parties didn’t address the rumors immediately. It was over three weeks later when Jeffrey Tung’s company issued a statement stating he was single.
Jin Chen got entangled in dating rumors on December 23rd when paparazzi snapped pictures of her hanging out with her co-star, Juck Zhang (张超), from the Chinese version of “Gossip Girl” (了不起的女孩), which is currently filming. It’s reported the two were seen buying liquid soap at a convenience store.
Sina Entertainment reached out to Jin Chen’s team and they responded, “Romantic relationship doesn’t exist. Both of them are filming a new series, “Gossip Girl”. Juck Zhang is the male lead. Hope everyone looks forward to the new projects.” Even so, some netizens felt like Jin Chen was hyping up the dating rumors for exposure.
Jin Chen later posted a picture in response to netizens accusations about her trying to create exposure. She included a caption, “As long as a male is standing by your side then it’s hyping up. Let me see what I am hyping up?”
