So when Jon was ready to propose, he knew just where to bring Hai. "He suggested we play chess before the beginning of the movie, despite the fact that I don’t know how to play," she recalls. "And Jon was so nervous that he actually dropped the chess set and broke a piece!" When they finally got the game under way, Jon asked Hai, "What should my next move be?" Then he got down on one knee and proposed. "It was cute and cheesy at the same time," says Hai. "Needless to say, we missed the movie!"
