More than a day after Chen, 35, posted crude and cryptic messages about Lin, 41, on Weibo, she wrote that happiness "is not character but capability", and that she chooses to be happy and positive. Chen is said to be speaking up for Qin because he believes Lin is the reason his girlfriend was dropped from consideration.
Taiwan Apple Daily, citing sources, said the incident was related to his girlfriend, Chinese model Shu Pei Qin.

His native language is English, but he can speak and sing in Cantonese and in Mandarin and is conversational in Japanese, which allows him to be a part of multiple entertainment industries around the world.
On 21 February 2008 he publicly announced that he intended to step away "indefinitely" from the Hong Kong entertainment industry due to the sex photo scandal in 2008, in which numerous photographs of his naked body and private parts, and those of several Hong Kong Chinese actresses, were published online.
He spoke English as his first language before learning Cantonese and Mandarin later on. He also knows some basic Khmer since he had to learn it to play a Cambodian Assassin in Dog Bite Dog.
He starred in many popular films including Infernal Affairs, Infernal Affairs II, Initial D, and Dog Bite Dog.
Determined to expand his horizons to countries around the world, he also starred in the Japanese drama Under the Same Moon.
