SOUTH Korean musician DJ Koo said he cried for 30 minutes when he first met his wife Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu, 45, after his 10-day quarantine, reported Oriental Daily.
“As soon as the doors of the elevator opened, I saw my lovely wife standing in front of me. I rushed over like a girl, and I cried for 30 minutes,” he said.
Koo, 52, could not hide his happiness when talking about Hsu in a Korean talk show.
The couple created shockwaves on March 8 when they announced their surprise marriage on social media. They had dated in their younger days before breaking up in 1999, but reconnected after Hsu divorced Chinese businessman Wang Xiaofei, 40, last November.
They registered their marriage in South Korea, with Hsu filing the relevant documents in Taiwan and sending them to Koo in South Korea.
Koo then flew to Taipei on March 9 where he had to undergo a 10-day quarantine, after which he immediately went to Hsu’s home.
Social media users noticed he had a ring tattoo on his left hand and speculated that he had tattooed his wedding ring on his finger.
He did not appear to have any tattoos from his old pictures on Instagram.
Koo also clarified that Hsu’s mother accepted him and liked him a lot.
“My mother-in-law likes me very much and always calls me her son,” he said.
Koo explained that the breakup when they both were younger was due to cultural differences.
“My parents were worried as I was then the backbone of the family, so I had no choice but to say goodbye,” he explained, adding that Hsu and him broke up after dating for about a year.
