That’s when the woman shouted, “Mr Lee, I love you!”. Mr Lee then replied, “Thank you”.

However, the woman did not seem satisfied with the answer. Following this, she unabashedly repeated herself.

This time, Mr Lee played along and good-naturedly said, “Love you too!”.

Everyone, including those around him on the float, could be seen laughing at his statement.

In response, the woman laughed and happily thanked him.

Netizens say Mr Lee must have been amused

As it stands, the video has garnered over 3,500 likes on Instagram. Some netizens laughingly said Mr Lee was already married and unavailable.
