The actresses kissed twice on stage, leading to surprised cheers from the audience.
Taiwanese actress Rainie Yang shared a kiss with good friend Ariel Lin at the Next Magazine Entertainment Awards ceremony.
At the ceremony held on Wednesday night, Ariel was the presenter for the Top 10 Most Popular Celebrity award. As Rainie received her award from the actress, she gave her a quick peck on the lips which surprised the latter.
The host of the awards ceremony, Bowie Tsang, jokingly claimed that the media might not have taken a good shot of the kiss and requested Rainie to kiss Ariel again. The actresses then reenacted the kiss, leading to cheers from the audience. Rainie later expressed that she had "initially wanted to hug Ariel but she's full of spikes [Ariel's outfit]."
Ariel then let on that "we even used the same lip gloss."
Ariel who recently admitted that she is dating, blushed and refused to answer when asked how different it was to kiss a girl compared to smooching with a guy.
After news of her relationship surfaced, the media rushed to uncover the identity of her beau. Ariel had to apologise to her boyfriend, she claimed "he is not a celebrity but he respects me and understands my job," adding that "he has yet to complain about anything."
Asked how the couple will be spending the upcoming Chinese Valentine's Day, Ariel expressed that as it is her father's birthday, "I'll spend the day with my father."
