A happy beginning appears to be in sight for actress Olivia Wang Ziwen and her new beau Wu Yong’en. After yesterday’s episode showing the couple hugging it out and kissing aired, the actress made the relationship Instagram official (except it was on Weibo) with a new post showing herself and Wu Yong’en smiling happily for the camera.
Many of you might recognise Wu Yong’en who also goes by the name Andrew as her date on the show A Journey for Love 怦然再心动, a dating reality program that follows female celebrities looking for another chance at love. It was actually whilst she was on a date with Wu Yong’en that Olivia finally admitted on camera for the very first time that she has a 7 year old child.
Looking back, I suppose the fact that she’s totally comfortable revealing to him a secret she’s been keeping for a long time should be enough to give us an inkling about how she feels about him. The fact that he didn’t judge her for it and didn’t think differently of her after finding out the truth definitely says a lot about him too (not to mention major brownie points).
Now I’m usually wary about couples born from reality shows because you don’t really know if it’s real or all part of the script. But in Olivia’s case, I’ll gladly be proven otherwise because everyone, even a single mum, deserves to find happiness.

“because everyone, even a single mum, deserves to find happiness”
Even a single mum? What the hell? That’s so godamn offensive I got a whiplash while reading.
I think what the OP means, because there is a lot of stigmatism around single moms, especially in Asian countries (South Korea especially), the poster was meaning that they deserve to find happiness just as much as everyone else. I took the comment as support of single moms not against.
I agreed with you there.
Agree with you – it’s a positive statement in the Asian context. Although I wish they don’t have to put it on such public display. Feels like they are all just acting a script. Anyway, wish them all the best if the participants have found the right person through this show.
It was unfortunate use of words. Good meaning, but phrasing like this doesn’t really help against that nonsensical stigma.
