Cheating Scandal Made Andy Hui Into a Better Personjessie tan
Suffering the most serious blow in his career after his cheating scandal with Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) last year, Andy Hui (許志安) has not made a public appearance for 14 months. The last time he spoke with the media was at his press conference last year, in which he apologized for his infidelity and betraying his wife Sammi Cheng‘s (鄭秀文) trust. Though he realizes he is forever connected to his cheating mistake, Andy is ready to face his past. Time has made Andy look deeply into himself and change for the better.
Making a guest appearance on ViuTV’s music program, Chill Club, Andy spoke with the crowd of reporters eager to interview him. He shared his thoughts with the media before filming, “During this period of quietness, I have been reflecting and learning. I feel that I have grown a lot as a person. There have been periods of hardship during this time, but I always encourage myself to try my best to look forward to the future. I feel that now is a good time to come out and face myself and society. This incident has allowed me to walk a better path in the future, to have a chance to start again, and be my best self. I’ve been spending this time with my family. I know that they are the most important.
“As well, I’ve been using this time to prepare myself by reading and doing exercise. I don’t dare say I am returning to work especially during the pandemic–I’ll leave that decision with my company. By standing here today, I am telling everyone I am ready. I am here to bear the responsibilities of my actions and my words. I can’t say what the future will be like, but I am certain I am 100 percent better than before. I was uncertain and asked myself if I was ready, but my wife told me to be 100 percent ready and to have a positive mindset. I am a little nervous to face everyone–it requires courage to face your past.”
During the pandemic, Andy took part in some volunteer events. “I went with William So (蘇永康) to senior homes to give out face masks and make lunch boxes. When talking to the seniors, I can feel that they really need our love and support. I feel that they are the ones that are helping me in changing the way I think. In the future, I definitely will pay more attention to societal needs.”
Reporters asked if he has received support for his appearance today from his Sammi. He replied, “She just told me to be natural and to have confidence in myself. During this period, other than spending time on improving myself, I have been taking care of my aging dog Lucky. His condition is worsening and he is starting to lose his ability to walk. From him, I’ve learned to be grateful. He’s been with me for a long time, and I hope that he can be happy during the last portion of his life.”
Andy was also asked if he has been in contact with Jacqueline since her return to Hong Kong. “I know that everyone needs time to accept what I’ve done. The past is in the past–this incident is like an open wound that will never disappear and will constantly remind me to be vigilant in becoming the best version of myself.”
He also stated that he has seen the recent news of Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Roxanne Tong’s (湯洛雯) relationship but denied to further comment.
