Xiang Yun & Edmund Chen Celebrate 33rd Wedding Anniversary With This Throwback Clip From 1989 Drama Patrol

This was also the series that kickstarted the couple’s relationship.

Can you believe Edmund Chen and Xiang Yun have been married for 33 years? 

Yesterday (June 6), Edmund, 60, posted this adorable throwback clip containing a snippet from the 1989 drama Patrol to celebrate the milestone.

You can practically see the sparks flying between Edmund and Xiang Yun.

Heart eyes all around.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering why Edmund chose to post a clip from Patrol, it’s ‘cos the lovebirds first met while filming the drama.

And boy, did sparks fly between the two of them.

After a whirlwind romance — Xiang Yun and Edmund only dated for 1.5 months — the couple registered their marriage, and here we are today.

Happy 33rd anniversary!

While Xiang Yun has remained active in showbiz (she won the Best Evergreen Artiste at the Star Awards this year), Edmund chose to retire from acting in the early noughties. 

When he guested on LOVE 972’s Breakfast Quartet last year, he shared that it was 'cos he wanted to spend more time with the couple’s daughter, Yixin.

One with the kids.

Xiang Yun and Edmund have two kids together — Chen Xi, 30, and Chen Yixin, 22. Both of them are active in showbiz too.

And kids... that's how I met your mother.

You can re-watch Patrol here on meWATCH. The first episode is embedded below
