It’s never easy to maintain a relationship when we’re so busy with our daily life and job, so imagine these Asian celebrity power couples who stay together despite their crazy schedules AND also killing it in Hollywood. Some of them are acting in movies and TV series, and uniquely, their love stories also sounds like it came straight from a movie! So let’s find out how these couples met!
Henry Golding & Liv Lo
Henry Golding, who wouldn’t know this fine man acting as the charming Nick Young in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’? Yes, he is married girls, so let’s just move on to his love story!
Henry met his wife Liv Lo, who is a fitness personality, model, and the founder of Fit Sphere on 1st January 2011 a day that Liv describes as a “lucky day indeed”. Their first meeting is almost like a romcom storyline, it’s almost hard to believe that it’s real. Both of them attended the same birthday party and Liv noticed Henry was staring at her from across the room, but he never introduced himself.
She even danced on the speakers just to get his attention! But as she was leaving, Henry walked behind her and guess what she said? Liv turned around and said “Hi, I am leaving and you’re never going to see me again.” Liv took the opportunity to chat to him as she had nothing to lose.
Hasan Minhaj & Beena Patel
How did Hasan Minhaj and Beena Patel meet? Turns out the couple go way back; before the lights, camera, action of Hasan's career, he and Beena were students together. According to the New York Times, the comedian and his management consultant wife met in college at the University of California, Hasan admitted to being attracted to Beena the moment they met.
| “I met the love of my life there. It's wild. When you're living your life, you don't realize that history is happening in real time. So when I first saw her as a freshman, I was just living on the quiet floor in the Thoreau dorms. She was just a girl I had a crush on. I didn't know she'd be my wife.” |
Kunal Nayyar & Neha Kapur
| “I thought, wow she’s hot! I wanted to hook up with her to be honest. And then she was so tall….I said, ‘Hey sit down I’ll buy you a drink’ And that was it.” |
And boom! A whole new love story is written for Kunal Nayyar and Neha Kapur. Here’s another interesting story of love at first sight during a party, similar to how Henry Golding and his wife met, but here is the twist: actor Kunal Nayyar, who plays ‘Raj’ from the TV series The Big Bang Theory actually made a move on his wife, Neha Kapur!
Neha Kapur, an Indian model and actress who was also a Miss India pageant in 2006 and when she attended a friend’s party years ago, caught Kunal’s eyes at first sight and he took action by offering to buy her a drink. All he said to her was a simple “Hey, sit down, I’ll buy you a drink.” What a gentleman, we sure wish all men have the courage like Kunal in expressing their feelings, don’t we?
Randall Park & Jae Suh Park
An avid fan of ‘The Office’? Then you might be familiar with Randall Park, who plays ‘Asian Jim’ from the immensely popular TV series. Tied the knot after just a year of dating actress; Jae Suh Park, who acted in TV series ‘Friends From College’, their love story is what you would call as ‘destiny’.
This couple first met in 2007 at a theatre, where they both noticed each other from across the room, but didn’t really have the courage to introduce themselves to each other. However, just like fate, they ran into each other again at an audition a few days after that, but just as Randall was about to ask for his wife’s number, Jae Suh was called in for the audition. They were definitely fated to be together when they meet again at another audition a few days later. What are the odds! Randall then invited her to his birthday party, and the rest is history.
Look around you, maybe one of those people, you often meet is actually your soulmate, who knows? Some people think love at first sight isn’t a thing, but these celebrity couples prove that love at first sight is indeed a thing!
