Let’s all face it: prior to this scandal, many of us didn’t know who Jacqueline Wong is, much less Kenneth Ma.
Old men like me might know Andy Hui who’s starred in several dramas that were aired in Singapore a few hundred years ago, but we certainly all know Sammi Cheng, one of the Cantopop Queens who was also our imaginary girlfriend when we were young.
Ever since the scandal, the Internet has a field day: from a meme fest…
…to an optician shop even providing discount based on the scandal (WTF, indeed):
Sammi has been quiet so far, but Andy Hui has cried on live TV (okay, live YouTube) and apologised for his actions.
However, the 30-year-old Jacqueline has spoken albeit not to reporters.
The American-born Hong Kong Canadian actress and singer, who won first runner-up in Miss Hong Kong 2012 that kickstarted her showbiz career, has apologised on her official Instagram account.
Lest your Mandarin is as bad as my Cantonese, here’s the translated version:
I’m sorry. I was wrong.
It’s a lapse in judgement that is unforgivable, and I’m ashamed and regret it deeply.
I’d like to take this chance to apologise to people who are hurt by this incident.
I can’t face myself after such a big mistake, and I’ve not idea how to face my family members, Kennath Ma, my friends, my company and my colleagues.
I won’t dare to ask for people’s forgiveness, but I hope people can give all those who are affected some privacy.
I’ll reflect on this and accept any consequences.
Once again, “I’m sorry”
So, what has her boyfriend of four years said?
