In the last year, Simu Liu’s relationship with Interscope Records’ Allison Hsu has grown by leaps and bounds. The Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings actor said in September 2022 that he was “going through a breakup,” and by November of that year, he and Hsu were on her Instagram timeline.
Since then, they’ve been enjoying tropical vacations, meeting family, and spending the holidays together. Here’s their complete relationship timeline so far.
At the Dreamforce 2022 conference in San Francisco, Liu told Entertainment Tonight about his breakup, adding, “I’m okay, I’m okay.”
“I’m learning to prioritize myself, I’m becoming more and more comfortable with the idea of therapy and support systems,” he added. “It really just hit me recently just how burnt out I was. I experienced moments where I’m living my dream, and it didn’t quite feel like I was where I needed to be with myself. I’m also going through a breakup. That’s probably also contributing to it, but that’s okay, I’ll be okay.”
On November 20, Hsu posted a very suggestive photo of herself with Liu with only a smiley face emoticon in the caption.
Just a little over a week after going Instagram official, they were debuted their relationship on the red carpet for the premiere of Violent Night. Liu shared the picture of them on the red carpet just a few days later on Instagram.
At the beginning of December, People confirmed their relationship. They also shared pictures of a gorgeous vacation together full of adorable shots.
And Liu shares a tribute to his “breathtaking” girlfriend.
They hit the red carpet again for Unforgettable: The 20th Annual Asian American Awards, where People asked Liu about Hsu. He was happy to gush about his girlfriend.
“She’s a badass, she’s a fighter, and she’s very, very passionate about all things in life, her work, her job, and her other things,” he said. “And that’s a language that I speak very well, and I am happy to see where it goes.”
On December 21, they attended a game together in Los Angeles.
Before heading to Taiwan to enjoy the holidays, Liu said they were going there to do “the whole family thing and meeting the parents thing.” He added that “no matter who you are and where you come from or anything like that, is a stressful time.”
But it looks like it was fun.
Liu shared a very sexy photo of himself at a roller rink that he attributed to Hsu, quoting her in the caption as saying, “babe i just took the hottest picture of you that ever existed.”
Hsu commented on the post, “you’re welcome everyone.”
Later that month, he celebrated V-Day with cute pics, writing, “happy valentine’s day babe sorry i couldn’t make the eagles win.”
In March, Liu shared a series of black and white photos he took with Hsu, writing, “Photodump but make it art.”
They also attended the 2023 Green Carpet Fashion Awards at NeueHouse Hollywood.
While promoting his new romantic movie One True Loves, Liu said that Hsu will “definitely watch it.”
“The jury’s still out as to how we’ll feel about it,” he added. “But, it’s always an interesting predicament that actors find themselves in.”
He also celebrate his birthday on April 19 with his girl, thanking her for everything.
“i know they say that the greatest gift to receive on your birthday is the company of friends and loved ones… but that’s bullshit,” he wrote. “it’s definitely an electric guitar and a cake with your single art on it. thanks babe :)”
