Li Kuncheng is a famous Taiwanese songwriter who has numerous successful hits under his belt. However, his successful talent was soon overshadowed by the announcement of his fiancée, Li Jing En.

His engagement announcement became such a hot issue because his fiancee was 40 years younger than him. What as more controversial was that they began dating when she was a minor at 17 years old.

They first met when Li Kuncheng was visiting a close friend of his. There, he met his friend’s daughter, who will soon become his future wife.

He revealed in an interview that they were first companions as she kept him company while he was recovering from an injury. Soon, that companionship blossomed into love.

She visited (me) and before she left, she asked me what I was going to do later in the day. I told her I was thinking of going for a movie and she said she was keen to accompany me. We started off as companions but I found myself falling in love with her.

She is naive but full of emotions. She is artistically talented, with a love for literature and arts.

When they first announced their plans to marry, the public criticized their love. But no one else was more against their engagement than Li Jing En’s father – Li Kuncheng’s close friend. Li Jing En’s father even tried suing Li Kuncheng to call off their wedding, but he lost the case.

Li Kuncheng criticized the media and public for judging their love. He believes there should be no hatred against a “young, sweet girl” falling “hopelessly” in love with him.

We owe no one an explanation why we are together.

The media hype and the public attention here (in Taichung, Taiwan) have spiraled out of control. I don’t understand why people find it incredulous that a young, sweet girl can fall hopelessly in love with an old man.

And by the way, who says 57 is old?

Since the announcement of their engagement, Li Jing En’s social media accounts have flooded with rumors of their secret marriage, pregnancy, and more.

She asserted that she is not pregnant and planned on marrying Li Kuncheng soon.

逼得我拍張半身照,冷飯要炒到哪時候?上次無中生有說我懷孕,我生氣開罵,有網友分享:沒懷孕就沒懷孕,兇屁?欠一百、兩百塊錢可以,但你欠我三百塊?報我一次、兩次懷孕還在容忍範圍,三次以上真的太超過了喔。而且還拍路人懷孕出現在機場的照片,根本不像我好嗎= =?(男的是有點像坤城)按照媒體說我懷孕的次數,我大概生了三、四胎以上了。
