I always thought they were a perfect couple for each other and so much in love.High-profile Taiwan celebrity couple Vic Zhou and Barbie Hsu has broken up, according to local media reports.
Hsu confirmed the split via her assistant during an activity in Hong Kong on Monday. Zhou's agent also confirmed the news. Both declined to make further comments.
Barbie Hsu's mother told the media the couple parted amicably.
Barbie Hsu, 31, and Vic Zhou, 26, gained wide popularity through the 2001 hit television drama "Meteor Garden." They collaborated in another series, "Mars," in 2004, and officially began dating in July 2005.
I know that they both grew quite a bit from this relationship, and they have stated they will be friends forever:

Vic Zhou and Barbie Hsu's two and a half years of (sister, brother) love relationship have ended.
Yesterday, Zai Zai who was in Taiyuan, capital city of Shanxi province, China announced the seperation with Barbie.
They were unable to maintain as a love couple but they can become life-long friends of close family ties.
At the press reception, Zai Zai was asked about the news on the break-up;
He said: 'It's true, we have broken up, the feeling with Da S is one from being her boyfriend to that of family member. The feeling of being a family member will be everlasting, this is much better.'
He was reluctant to disclose the reasons for the seperation but he feels that the two and half years with Da S were good times.
Rumours spread that the reasons for the breaking up were publicity for the film and that of
the female being stronger than the male and even 'forced marriage'?
Zai Zai rebutt that it's only hearsay, it's not the facts and that he did not wish to comment more.
In actual fact in mid December last year, Zai Zai had already made known the 'seperation notice'. Outsiders misunderstood that for a marriage announcement.
Last year on December 9, when Zai Zai was in Shanghai to attend the prize presentation ceremony,the media asked when the marraige will take place?
Zai Zai replied that: 'There will be a breakthrough in our relationship next year.'
He did not elaborate further what he meant by breakthrough.
Now we understand the real meaning of his statement. The breakthrough is their decision to separate.
I'm in utter shock and heart broken. But again, I wish them the best.
