G.E.M. attended to a movie promotion event yesterday afternoon. Asked did Jason Chan asked her out for a date on Valentine's Day, G.E.M. said: "I was at home at Valentine's Day. No one is pursuing me. Rumors aren't true, don't want to talk about it anymore." She expressed her company didn't yell at her, but urged her to talk less about things that aren't related to singing.

G.E.M. hopes to be in love so it would be better when singing love songs. She said: "Company allows us to date. I even asked whether we can get married. They said it's ok, as long as it doesn't affect our job. Unfortunately, my pursuers were gone now. Even trying to be friends with people is something others will discuss." Jason said earlier that G.E.M. thought too much, G.E.M. joked: "I didn't think about anything, I think he really thought too much." She denied liking and misunderstanding people easily: "If someone starts to pursue me, he will do many nice things to me, it won't cause any misunderstanding easily."
