Mediacorp stars Ian Fang and Carrie Wong recently came under fire after their steamy texts and private conversations spread like wildfire online.
Part of their private conversation also happen to centre around Lawrence Wong of “Story of Yanxi Palace” fame. In the text, Carrie commented that Lawrence wouldn’t be able to live up to the late Aloysius Pang’s legacy as his replacement in “My One In A Million”.

an excerpt from my latest cover story interview with @8dayssg: . “I’m proud of my whole journey as an actor. To put it bluntly, I started off at the lowest level. I had no backing from a rich company. The TV station didn’t want to sign me. I didn’t come from a competition and was immediately given substantial roles. I really started from the lowest point. Back then I could barely survive and I had to do hosting gigs which I’m not good at. I hated hosting but I had to do it to survive. I stumbled here and there and I honed my craft slowly bit by bit. I made a lot of sacrifices. I ate a lot of shit to slowly become who I am today. So I don’t think it’s just about going to China. I think my whole process, if I dare say, is a good lesson for everyone. No one wanted me. I was really at the bottom.” . during the interview, i didn’t realize i gave the perfect answer to all the naysayers who think that my achievements are due to “good looks”, “connections” or just simply “luck”.
Lawrence seemingly clapped back via a Instagram post (above) in which he detailed how he came from nothing and had to work from the ground up. His manager Roger Ho also revealed that the actor was aware of Carrie’s shady remarks since last Thursday.
However, Lawrence has decided to forgive Carrie after she personally reached out to him. “She was very calm when she apologised and I am grateful that she has been gracious in her apology. It’s understandable and I won’t hold a grudge. All that matters is that everyone is focused on completing the show,” the 30-year-old actor was quoted as saying.
Carrie also took to her Instagram to publicly apologise, thanking Lawrence for being the bigger person. “Thank you for being the bigger person. Despite everything you lend me your listening ear and offer me words of encouragement. I’ve learned and will keep learning. Once again, I’m sorry,” she wrote.
Her followers supported her apology and even offered their sympathy. Boyfriend Boris Lin also commented on her post: “I will always be on your side.”
