The H1N1 (Swine Flu) has affected the whole world, Joey Yung, Hacken Lee and Leo Ku have all claimed that they are suffering from the flu symptoms, but they have been trying to prevent it. Joey said that she's been drinking her mom's soups to counter the bad viruses!
Joey Yung, Janice Vidal, Kay Tse, Hacken Lee and other singers attended the "J.S.G Selections 2009 Round 1" (2009勁歌金曲優秀選第一回). Jade Kwan's 《悲哀代言人》 is one of the 39 nominees. Recently the Swine Flu has been affecting the entire world, last night at the JSG studio many of the singers were not feeling well. As one of the hosts, Leo Ku had a sore throat and was not able to perform his winning song, the broadcast of the MV was needed to replace him.
As the host this time, Leo had a sore throat, definitely the wrong time to get sick. Because of the flu, Kay has not been going out very often with her son.
Joey who had just returned from Beijing frankly said that when she was releasing her new album she felt relieved, but now she's starting to feel sick: "Luckily usually I try to stay healthy, also my mom made me some soup, so after feeling sick for two days, I felt a lot better after." Joey said that whenever she goes out she will always wear a mask, wash her hands and also the shoes she wore, she will leave it outside.
Kay will be opening her concert very soon, the crew and herself have been paying close attention to the news on the flu: "We pay attention to the news update everyday about the flu, also we had a meeting to talk about it, but everyone felt that there is nothing special that needs to be prepared. (Wearing masks at the concert?) I don't mind audience taking precautions because health is the most important thing." As to rumors of the ticket sales are not satisfactory, Kay expressed that once the tickets starts selling, it will be gone in a flash, even in Canada the tickets were sold out in 15 minutes. She said: "I later learned that the tickets were placed online for Bidding in an unlawful manner, the tickets were being sold at a significantly lower price. That's why others misunderstood that the ticket sales are not up to standards, I don't encourage people to be obtaining the tickets in that unlawful manner."
Kate Tsui was also present at the event and won "Most Recommended Newcomer Award" (V新人薦場飆星獎), but she smiled and said that because she needed to dance with dance queen Jolin Tsai on stage, she was very nervous: "This is my first award in the Music Industry, but I am quite nervous as well as excited because there is Jolin here. I usually watch her MV, feel that she does the hard movements very well, it's amazing to watch.
