RBKD: Rui En finally has an Instagram account @wilderseas29 and has gained more than 10,000 followers within three hours.
“Vehemently against” having social media
Rui En, who has been “vehemently against” the idea of having social media previously, shared that recent events, such as the loss of her cat and her father suffering a heart attack, on top of the Covid-19 pandemic, has given her cause to rethink.
She wrote: “Then all the grief, loss and Covid happened, and I started thinking of mortality. I realized that if I looked back at the end of my life, a major regret would be having a platform but not using it to help others.”
In her first post, the actress also shared that she has left Artiste Networks, Hype Records’ artiste management arm, after about two decades.

RBKD: Mothership complimented Rui En’s commitment to her art, for gaining 4kg for her new role as an auntie for Channel 8 drama titled, “If Only I Could…”
Based off Rui En’s interview with Channel 8 News, Rui En admitted that she was worried that her younger fans wouldn’t want to continue supporting her after she gained weight.
She eventually decided to stop worrying and even shared that she will not rush to lose the extra kilograms as she feels that women with curves are more feminine.
Quoting Mothership, “Take a bow, Rui En.”
Mothership also took a jibe at Channel 8 News, claiming that although they were from the same company as Rui En, Channel 8 news uploaded pictures that were less than flattering. Instead, Lianhe Wanbao from media competitor SPH were kinder in their choice of photos uploaded.
