Rumors said Sonija Kwok's action choreographer boyfriend took special care of her, that's how he touched her heart. Then later rumors said the couple is rushing marriage in April because Sonija is pregnant. But none of them are true. Here we have the actress telling the real story herself. One thing we sure is, it's all fated.
It was reported Sonija and her boyfriend Zhu Shaojie's close interaction on the filming set of Mainland drama "Palace" made them become lovers, but actually they weren't too close at work. Sonija's role didn't require that much action scenes; even if she needed assistance, it was Zhu's assistant choreographer who helped out. So how did they really get to know each other?
"A few days before we were done filming, someone said he would introduce a guy to me," said Sonija. "I joked, 'Okay! Then ask whether he dares to hold my hand!' Since I'm not young anymore, and has some fame, not many people dared to pursue me."
Sonija didn't know the guy she was being introduced to will become her Mr. Right. Although she was introduced to some people the past years, but none were right matches, which made her well-prepared to become a "remaining woman." But this changed when she met Zhu. She dined with him another day and it was quite embarrassing start.
"We didn't know what to say. We said goodbye after the dinner."
Two days after their first dinner together, Sonija had to return to Hong Kong to film a new drama. Zhu was there at the airport and brought her 100 red roses. Who isn't touched by 100 red roses? Because she couldn't bring the flower bouquet to the plane, she only took one flower out. This was when they decided to give it a try.
However, they were experiencing a distant relationship; she was in Hong Kong and he was in other places. Their only communication was via phone, text messages, and Skype. Although it was like that for more than 3 months, but the relationship still went well.
"We had good communications. It felt right. I like how he is just like me, like to stay at home. Plus we haven't date for several years, and have been waiting for a right match, so we hit it off quickly."
"I went to Mainland and met his family. That day he knelt down with a diamond ring and proposed. I was very moved and dropped tears. He is simple, practical, good to his family, and hardworking. I feel very comfortable loving him. I can say what I want to him. This is the simple happiness."
Sonija is planning out her wedding now engaged to Zhu,. It was originally set to be on April, but she doesn't want to prove the media really guessed it right, so she moves it to at the end of this year.
"We would invite close friends and relatives to our wedding. I don't want to make it like a show. Then we would return to Mainland and have dinner with his family."
Sonija will continue her career as an actress. As for having kids, it's a must to the 36-year-old.
"My mom always urges me to have kids. My fiance loves kids, too," she said sweetly. "So it's hard to not right?"
The couple seem to be fated to be together---they actually met each other already in 2000. Sonija was filming "A Step Into the Past" with Louis Koo and Zhu was the stunt double at that time. They even took a photo together as a group. Who knew they would meet again and even decide to be together?
