Jerry Yan dating mixed-blood Japanese model
According to Taiwanese media reports, Jerry Yan is dating Japanese-Swiss mixed-blood model Shoko, and the underground romance has been kept under wraps for half a year since the start of 2013.
The model, who is nine years Jerry’s junior, has a Japanese father and a Swiss mother.
An insider source revealed that the pair had met at a mutual friend’s gathering at the end of last year, and it was Jerry who made the first move.Despite the language barrier, the actor was said to be smitten by Shoko’s sweet appearance and went on to ask for her number – on the pretext of wanting to learn the Japanese language.
The friendship soon turned into a romantic relationship at the start of this year, and the pair would arrange to meet in Jerry’s home in Taiwan or during work trips overseas in order to date.
According to reports, the 27-year-old Shoko is no stranger to showbiz. She moved to Taiwan three years ago to further her modeling career, and has since made appearances in various commercials, movie Double Trouble, and Jay Chou’s music video ‘Yu Xia Yi Zheng Wan’.
In response to the rumour, Shoko’s manager, Andy, said, “Shoko is now in Japan and is not contactable. However, our agency does not pry into the private lives of our artistes. To add, she (Shoko) is a good girl, and we are not worried about the friends she makes.”
Meanwhile, Jerry’s management has responded that the rumour is a “baseless story”.
