Zeng Yong and Liu Yonggang are two twin brothers who have been separated for 41 years. Older brother Zeng grew up in Chengdu and is currently the boss of a hotel, while his estranged younger sibling Liu grew up in Neijiang in southeast Sichuan, and is the manager of a bus company. The two haven’t seen each other in 41 years, and barely know of each other’s existence. Recently however, the pair finally met and on July 3.
On June 23, Zeng’s good friend and neighbor Huang Yong was in Neijiang having a hotpot dinner with his wife and some other buddies. Not long after the group sat down and begun eating, Huang spotted a person who he thought was Zeng, so he called out his name, though the person didn’t react. Huang recalled that he thought it was strange that Chengdu-based Zeng was in Neijiang, and thought it even stranger that he was speaking the local dialect fluently.
After speaking to the Zeng lookalike, Huang then called his friend back in Chengdu and let the pair have a chat. Zeng and Liu then sent each other photos of themselves, and after some further conversation about their lives, the penny finally dropped.
On June 30, the long-lost brothers met up and travelled to their hometown. After inquiring with the locals, they found that their father, Liu Shaoyun, had been dead for over ten years though their mother, Huang Xiuxian, had remarried and relocated to a town called Pingquan. They also discovered that they had quite a large family – with seven more sisters and two more brothers who were scattered across various parts of the country. Regarding their separation, it was found that because the family was poor, the twins were given up for adoption, and eventually went to different families.
