Puppy love may be light and fluffy but it doesn’t mean that it was forgettable. For Mediacorp actor Romeo Tan, his puppy love happened way back in 1995 when he was in primary four.
“At that time there was a popular telemovie called Cupid Love starring Athena Chu and Chen Hanwei. And in the show they had this game Paper Planes and Little White Boat. It’s like a penpal thing where they write letters to each other,” the 37-year-old told AsiaOne.
“So we copycat lah, we followed. I wrote a letter to her and she wrote a letter back to me. And we went back and forth for about three years.”
However, as with most puppy love, it ended on a bittersweet note.
Romeo added: “Eventually in the letter we said that, ‘Actually I like you’ and all these. It was quite popular (as a game) and it was quite sweet… And on the last day of primary school, we ended it. I think it’s more like we were too young and not ready.”
