Hong Kong actor Marco Ngai (魏骏杰) has been living the single-father life with his daughter. It hasn’t been too long since he divorced his wife, Zhang Lihua (張利華) in 2020. However, it seems their separation has taught Marco something.
Recently, Lihua was allegedly attacked by her current boyfriend, Ha Yulun (胡雅倫). Media were quick to approach Marco for a comment on the situation. Surprisingly, all Marco had to offer were words of wisdom.
Marco had initially been in a relationship with actress Joyce Tang (滕麗名) for 9 years. However, after meeting Lihua in 2007, he broke up with Joyce and married Lihua a year later in 2008. Their relationship then had caused some controversy as Marco was 54 while Lihua was only 20. The duo had a daughter and lived in Hong Kong.
It soon became apparent that their marriage was falling apart, especially with rumours of Lihua seeing other men. Eventually the couple divorced, with Marco deciding to take care of their daughter by himself. The actor also stressed that he would not be marrying again. However, the same could not be said of Lihua. She started working in the insurance industry and was doing very well for herself.
However, on 29th of March, reports regarding her started circulating. There were claims that she had been attacked by her current lover Yulun. According to official reports, a 34-year-old woman surnamed Zhang had been found injured and bleeding. Police later arrested a suspect, a 42-year-old man surnamed Hu. Hu had apparently claimed that he hadn’t assaulted his girlfriend. She had simply stumbled while drunk and had gotten injured. However, Zhang allegedly had been too intoxicated to give a statement.
Hong Kong media later reached out to Marco, hoping to get his thoughts on the supposed attack. However, Marco simply recited a few Buddhist verses. “All the evil deeds committed in the past were caused by greed, hatred, ignorance; from the body, speech and intention, I now repent of everything,” he said. Some have interpreted his words to mean he was feeling remorseful about past mistakes.
Well, that’s certainly one way to respond to news about your ex-wife allegedly being attacked. Lihua herself has yet to make a statement regarding the supposed assault. Neither has she commented on Marco’s cryptic statement.
