Hong Kong singer-actor Julian Cheung (张智霖), aka Chi-lam, recently showed off his dancing skills on the variety show “Call Me By Fire (披荆斩棘的哥哥)”. His showcase of the mambo pleased the crowd and got many compliments.
However, one person wasn’t too happy with his performance. Wife Anita Yuen (袁詠儀) expressed her jealousy online, catching the attention of fans. Apparently, this was the first time Julian had ever danced the mambo!
In the latest episode of “Call Me By Fire”, Julian and his teammates sang “The Past Can Only Be Remembered (往事只能回味)”. During the performance, Julian performed a retro mambo dance in front of the camera. His sexy and alluring moves delighted fans and many expressed their envy of Anita.
For those interested, watch the performance below. Some of the comments from netizens include:
- “This stage design is so classic! Chilam fits the role of this old-school boy look! The other brothers’ raps are absolutely superb! Well done, Jordan, Gai, Chilam, Bridge, Michael Tse, and Edmond Leung. The group harmony is amazing.”
- “The scene Chilam dancing in front of the mirror is very valuable, it reminds me of the scene Leslie dancing mambo in front of the mirror in “A day of being wild”…
- “This is absolutely brilliant! Truly a masterpiece – turning an all-time favourite classic into a contemporary musical. Outstanding stage acting and masterful rapping and singing.”
One would think his wife would have been privy to this dance at least once before. However, Anita was quick to prove them wrong. The actress posted photos of her husband’s performance and wrote: “Have you experienced Anita Yuen’s happiness? But I have never experienced this happiness before.” She placed a few frustrated and distraught emojis at the end to appropriately convey her emotions.
Her post made fans laugh and several comments suggested Julian should perform for his beloved wife. “Let him go (home) and twist for you alone,” one comment teased. Another suggested he should do it for 25 hours to make it up to her.
Although Julian’s first mambo performance was for a crowd, Anita may have the last laugh as she can watch him dance anytime at home. We hope Anita gets to witness her husband’s dance in person!
