It certainly has nothing with her looks either. A former model with a height of 5 feet 4 inches, she is undoubtedly an attractive woman. It would appear that she is focusing more on her developing career.

In that past, however, she revealed having a crush on a man named Jason Gong in high school. Other than that, there is no sign of a relationship on the horizon for the actress.
