Mat Yeung admits nearly married non-showbiz girlfriend in 2013

13 May – TVB actor Mat Yeung recently opened up about his past relationship, telling radio host Terry Leung that he was once engaged to be married.

As reported on HK01, the actor, who appeared on the radio show "Circles" recently, told Leung that prior to dating fellow actress Lisa Ch'ng, he was set to marry non-showbiz girlfriend Joanna in 2013.

Although Joanna was living in the United States at the time, Mat said that he was ready to walk down the aisle as the two of them had been dating for three years. He even used a significant part of his savings to realise his dream.

"There weren't any issues when we talked about marriage at the time, even to the moment we got engaged," he said.

However, Mat said that they realised that it didn't feel right as they began arguing about the wedding preparations.

"We realised that long-distance wasn't working out. It's not as simple as crossing over the ocean. We realised the reality of our situation, so we decided to break up," he said.
