Hong Kong superstar Aaron Kwok recently purchased a Shanghai mansion for HKD $30 million ($3.86 million) as a wedding gift for his soon-to-be wife, Moka Fang.
Recognized as one of Hong Kong’s four “heavenly kings”, the 51-year-old heartthrob is set to marry the 29-year-old model in June Next Media reports (via AsiaOne).
It was revealed that Kwok reportedly picked the property since he expects that their current lifestyles will remain even after their marriage. The house is located right next to the Shanghai’s affluent Xintiandi district where Fang was originally based. The talented actor still plans to travel around the world while working on his films, while Fang is expected to stay in Shanghai.
The couple, who had publicly announced their relationship in 2015, are expected to tie the knot by June of this year. News of the upcoming wedding made headlines earlier this month when it was reported that Kwok and Fang secretly filed a notice of intended marriage with the Hong Kong government.
As Kwok prefers their wedding to be low-key, he had reportedly thought of registering the marriage abroad, with Las Vegas (United States) or Bhutan among his choices, but recently decided to wed in Hong Kong.
Fang, however, objected and insisted that they get married in Hong Kong so she can immediately acquire resident status there.
