After being caught cheating with his friend Cheryl Hsieh, celebrity Aaron Chen was forgiven by his wife of 8 years, Grace, just 5 days after the incident, who was praised for her maturity in handling her husband’s scandal. The couple had taken a trip to Macau to heal their estrangement, and two months after the ordeal on Aug 18, Grace opened up emotionally for the first time, leading to an outpouring of support from netizens.
Grace had confronted the past with calm and dignity, and after returning from her trip with Aaron, she posted a message on Instagram, “Every single one of us is responsible for becoming a better person. We must look forward to the future, and not return to the past again and again…” Within the message there seemed to be yearning to let go of the past, and to begin their shared life anew.
Attached to the message was not a selfie, but simply an image of crossed lily-white feet with red toenails beside three white candles. Many followers left comments: “I miss you.”, “You’re the best, Grace, cheer up!” and “Go build a new future. To achieve what you two have done…this is only the beginning. Keep going!”.
Whether Aaron Chen has recovered professionally, today he appeared on the recording of the show New Style (綜藝新時代), which is the first appearance he’s made since being given the cold shoulder in the industry after the affair was uncovered. However, even though producers are still reluctant to make any interviews, many are paying close attention to hear about any personal matters. One thing’s for sure, Grace’s recent message is an obvious show of support for her husband.
