(Right: A fan lifted up trying to get a photo of Hacken)
Hacken Lee got his record company to invest 6 figures on a large cargo container truck to promote for his new album Sinner (罪人). Yesterday on Haiphong Road, Tsim Sha Tsui the ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on the cargo truck, and the fact that it was Golden Week, the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui were packed. The cargo truck also did not park correctly on the street, when an uniformed police officer passed by, a parking ticket was given. The police broke off the crowd and later police cars came to the scene to direct traffic and put everything back in order.
Hacken's promotion turned into a 'quick flash party', where he rushed to do the ribbon cutting and signed autographs in just 15 minutes. Afterwards, he expressed through an interview: "I was suspecting we fell for a trap, did some Universal person called them to come and give us a ticket, thinking they could tag my song 'sinner'?" He expressed that he has lost TVB's big help with publicity, so his company had to come up with other publicity tactics to make up for it. He also expressed that he's still not used to going on other TV stations to perform. He said: "Usually go to Tseung Kwan O, I'm used to their scent. I still have hope, I hope the issue can be resolved soon!"
Hope HKRIA and TVB issue can be resolved soon
The night before, when TVB was broadcasting a variety show and the show was cut half an hour short because the one scene showing Big 4 singers Alan Tam and Hacken singing was completely cut out, however, at the end during a big group singing, the close up shot of Hacken was left alone. Wonder if it's because Hacken is TVB's 'god son" that he got an advantage. Hacken said: "Really? It's really not false reputation, with only one shot is already good enough. I understand that there are rules, not broadcasting my parts is reasonable, but as far as I know TVB and Universal are still discussing, both sides have made concessions, hope we can be in harmony again within this year, good shaking hands again!"
TVB Foreign Affairs Director (Tsang Sing Ming) expressed that they had received a signal, at the time during the group sing, there was one camera angle on Hacken, but TVB considered that the show was not Hacken's personal show, so decided not to cut it.
