The 37-year-old actress shared the engagement news to Lai, who is eight years her senior and has also been dubbed the “Sunny Wang of the medical world” for his striking resemblance to the actor, in February 2017.
Since the ceremony was not officiated by a solemnizer, the couple is set to hold another wedding ceremony in Hong Kong in September, according to reports
As a thank you for all the well-wishers, Chung posted a short video
on social media on the day of the ceremony.
The two met while Chung was filming a new drama in Taiwan in July 2017. The actress then admitted that she and Lai began dating in October of the same year.
Congratulations and best wishes to the newlywed couple!
