The news came after the Meteor Garden actress filed for divorce from Chinese businessman Wang Xiaofei in early November of 2021.

She and her ex-husband met in 2010 and married after a whirlwind romance. Allegedly, Hsu started processing the divorce after Wang Xiaofei called the Taiwanese “a bunch of traitors” on social networking site Weibo, straining their marriage.

The divorce may have been the end of one relationship, but it was the start of a new one!

Back in 2010, DJ Koo guested on talk show Radio Star and admitted that he and Barbie Hsu dated over 20 years ago. He went on to describe their love story.

According to DJ Koo, he met the actress when he was invited to Taiwan as a concert guest. She was also present in the venue, and he may have caught her attention when he tore his shirt off during his performance.

It didn’t take long for the two to officially start dating. However, one year later, they reportedly broke up because his agency had strictly banned romantic relationships.

It was a distant memory when he described the relationship, but now it’s more real than ever!

On Tuesday, DJ Koo penned a heartfelt letter on Instagram, which Barbie Hsu reposted. It began with the words, “I am getting married. I want to share the story of someone that I loved 20 years ago.”

In the letter, DJ Koo explained that he searched for her number on his phone after hearing of her divorce. Two decades may have passed, but she luckily still used the same number! He got in touch with her, and the rest is history.

 After hearing about her divorce, I found her number from 20 years ago and contacted her. Luckily, her number was the same and we were able to connect again.
