TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- Taiwanese entertainer Rainie Yang (楊丞琳) officially became engaged to Chinese crooner Li Ronghao (李榮浩) after she accepted his proposal on his birthday today (July 11).
While celebrating his 34th birthday, Li, a popular Chinese male singer who won the Golden Melody Award for Best Male Singer with his album "Model" (模特) took his 35-year-old girlfriend Yang to the beach at an undisclosed location overseas to celebrate.
