When translated in English, the wedding announcement post read, “We are married. To have such a destiny with a lover from over 20 years ago – this is a love we both want to cherish and continue. When I heard the news of her divorce, I dug out her number from over 20 years ago and contacted her. Thankfully, her number has not changed and we reconnected. We have lost too much time together so I proposed marriage and Barbie finally agreed.”

He also wrote, “After registering our marriage, we shall live together. I’m marrying late in life and I hope to receive everyone’s love and support.” Hsu reposted the announcement on her official social media accounts with the caption, “Life is uncertain. I cherish the happiness I have in the present. I thank everything that has led me step by step to where I am now.”
