This couple was captured by a street photographer in China:
Eye-catching juxtaposition, but it’s gone viral for reasons beyond that.
People on the internet have identified the man as Hu Jiyong, an executive director at Huanqiu Project Management, a state-linked engineering corporation.
The woman in the shot was, well, not his wife.
In fact, Jiyong, was supposed to be on a business trip, and in a twist of irony, the woman has been revealed to be his colleague, Dong Sijin.
Sijin, who is in her 20s, is also a self-proclaimed fitness expert.
Viewers then surmised that the two were having an affair.
Jiyong’s wife works at the same company as well, Epoch Times reported.
After the incident blew up, Jiyong’s company released a statement, saying that he has been removed from his post and is pending a disciplinary review.
The statement, however, did not confirm if he was having an affair.
The photographer emphasised that the subjects did not refuse being in his shot, according to Chinese media.
