Culprit Gou Wen, 22, has apologized to Lin and said he only did it out of love.
“I love her so much but she didn’t know it and I didn’t know how to tell her," he was quoted by The Sun as saying. “So I did that thinking it was the ultimate way to show love."
But Gou isn't giving up, telling The Sun he's determined to "find another way" to win Zeng's heart.
Maybe next time he'll try candy.
