Husband Of Taiwanese Celeb Dance Teacher Liu Zhen Posts Heartbreaking Message After She Reportedly Slips Into Coma Following Heart Surgery
Taiwanese celebrity dance teacher, Serina Liu, or Liu Zhen, is said to have been on life support since early February after falling into a coma. This happened after her heart reportedly stopped beating during heart valve repair surgery at the Taipei Veterans General Hospital.
The 44-year-old’s family has been tight-lipped about the reports, but Liu Zhen's husband, singer Shin Lung, broke his silence with an emotional Facebook post on Feb 27.
“Liu Zhen needs everyone’s help to help her tide through this huge hurdle,” he wrote. “I’m willing to give up my own life for hers. Our daughter is only four and she can do without her father, but she can’t be without her mother.”
He continued, “I recorded our daughter’s voice saying ‘Mummy, get well soon and bring me to school!’ on my phone and played it for her. Tears fell from Liu Zhen's eyes immediately after hearing that. I sing for her, comfort her and support her every day. We’re not going to cry, we’re going to persevere!”
Shin Lung also thanked the medical staff for their hard work but he stopped short of speaking about his wife’s condition.
The 48-year-old added, “ Liu Zhen really needs everyone to cheer her on so she can recover her strength. This is the most crucial point in time for her, so I hope everyone gives us some space while sending her positive energy.”
According to Taiwanese reports, Liu Zhen, who has been hailed as Taiwan's “queen of ballroom dancing”, is currently waiting for a heart transplant. However, her agency has refused to comment on the rumour, instead asking for the public to respect the family’s privacy.
There was no prior indication of Liu Zhen having any issues with her health. The last post on her Instagram was made on February 26 and it was about a dance programme that she participated in. This is believed to have been posted by her manager. Still, many of her celeb friends, including Singapore-based Taiwanese actress-host Kate Pang, posted messages of encouragement for her.
The last post which seems to have been made by Liu Zhen was on February 12.
