Hong Kong artist Joey Yung (容祖兒) has always been a charismatic figure. She’s made plenty of friends both in and outside of the entertainment industry. In fact, a recent incident even got famed Datuk Lee Chong Wei to comfort her.
However, as it turns out, Joey claims there is one person who can and will resist her friendly charms. In her recent filming for the show “Let It Be (牧野家族)”, Joey alleged that this artist would refuse to help her. The artist in question turned out to be Nicholas Tse (谢霆锋)!
For those unaware, the show “Let It Be” encourages artists and celebs to take a step back from being busy to focus on living. As such, the celebs are expected to live simply. They spend their days doing things they love, looking after pet animals and household chores. For Joey, this also meant that the majority of her luggage was confiscated when she joined the show.
Of course, the producers offered a deal to allow her to regain some of it. They told Joey to invite a guest online to sing with her. However, they specifically requested one of the Four Heavenly Kings (四大天王). “I especially like William Chan (陈伟霆) and Nicholas Tse,” they added. Joey eagerly agreed to call William, thinking it was likely he would agree.
Joey tentatively recorded a voice message to William, greeting him with a “good morning” and explaining the situation. However, Joey also explained why she was calling him and not Nicholas. “As for Nicholas, I think he would rather kick me into the Atlantic,” she said sounding tearful. “But you wouldn’t do that to me, would you?”
Once the message ended, Joey turned to the camera saying that William was likely listening to the message now. “We’ll find out if he loves me as (a senior) or not,” she said. Luckily enough, William’s reply was immediate and he promised to help.
Joey was equally quick to share her woes from the show but that was apparently where William’s sympathy ended. He sent her a voice message of himself laughing, causing Joey to scowl playfully and grumble, “He’s (terrible).”
Joey has been friends with both Nicholas and William for a long time, and it certainly shows! After all, good friends will help you out of a pickle. Best friends however will laugh at you before helping you. It’s certainly nice to see Joey’s relationships with other artists and know that they are genuine.
