The Asian celebrity couple left Korea on July 2 for Beijing, where the Chinese actress’ parents live. On the same day, the two announced their romantic relationship and wedding plans for the upcoming fall, sending a happy shockwave around the globe.

The couple met with Tang’s parents on the evening of July 4, and had a family supper in a restaurant inside a luxury hotel near the Sanhuan area, according to the report.

The next day, July 5, the two reportedly went on a shopping spree and returned to the hotel at 11 p.m.

Tang seemed emotionally dependent upon her Korean fiance, the report added, as she hid behind him to shun the cameras.

Tang and Kim first met through the 2009 film “Late Autumn” as an actress and director. After the film work, they maintained a good friendship until October 2013, when Tang visited Korea for a commercial shoot. Since then, they have been in relationship.
