Anthony Wong Chau Sung is known for his hot temper and speaking out against injustice. However, there are exceptions to everything. When Anthony came upon guest interviewer, Koni Lui Wai Yi, he immediately reined in his temper. Not minding rumors, Anthony compared Koni to a lottery ticket. If he were able to successfully pursue her, it was like winning the lottery!
K= Koni Lui; A= Anthony Wong
The First Impression: A Bright Spectacle
K= I portrayed Anthony’s girlfriend in the film, Turning Point < Laughing Gor之变節>. However, our first meeting was at the Performing Artistes Guild banquet.
A= This woman was a bright spectacle before my eyes. At the time, Koni was sitting with three other Miss Hong beauties. However she was the most outstanding and possessed a noble air.
K= Wow, please don’t exaggerate! I was only second runner-up!
A= The Miss Hong Kong winner may not necessarily be the most beautiful. Many criteria may be considered, such as being the cleverest, possessing the highest academic qualifications, and the performance on the competition evening.
K= Many people say you have an angry temper. I have never been scared of you; perhaps I am brave!
A= Why would you be scared? I should be afraid of you instead! I hate newcomers who are dumb and pretend to be smart. Koni is different; she’s smart but will play dumb. She is sharp and picks up on everything.
It All Depends on Fate
K= I am obedient and get along with the older generation well. I believe that you have to carefully consider your questions before speaking with elders and don’t ask useless questions, making people hate you.
A= I am not your senior; we are equals. Eric Tsang wants to play the younger one! I am very clear on my generational relationships. Jay Chou and Isabella Leong had the opportunity to become my godson and goddaughter. Some people ask me to become their godfather. If it’s not the right timing, what’s the point?
K= If you don’t want to become a godfather, how about becoming a sifu (master)? However, you said that people can only bow their heads before you when you die, haha! Sometimes, I will ask Anthony for acting advice. For OL Supreme <女王辦工室>, Anthony advised me to come up with small gestures for my character, such as stretching, to leave a deeper impression with the audience. Anthony, what have you been busy with lately?
A= I have been trying to find a way to fix my insomnia. Perhaps I have been missing you, which made me unable to go to sleep! I love the fact that you look so proper, which gives off a mysterious air.
Teasing Each Other
K= We were linked romantically before; you are still so flirtatious?
A= An old man is like this?! You tease me; I tease with you. I am like this with both men and women. You said I am handsome. Bantering makes me happy!
K= I said you are cool; handsome would be too superficial!
A= I would rather be superficial! It’s not bad being crazy (laughs). Being romantically linked with you is like winning the lottery! [Dating you] would be like hitting the jackpot! How can I not be happy?
K= Oh, I am only a number in your heart? I don’t mind rumors as people say what they want to. I’m just afraid I can not get married if there are too many rumors!
Not Interested in Moses Chan
A= It’s okay to be linked with me, since my file is inches thick. I’m afraid it will affect you more. However, being romantically linked with Eric Tsang is indeed odd. There were no photos [as evidence]. I suggest you be linked with Moses Chan next time instead. At least Moses and I make sense as romantic interests; we are the same generation.
K= No way. I’m afraid someone will throw a banana peel at me! Moses has too many fans. I believe that you should go with the flow in dating. It’s difficult to plan a cool man for yourself. If love arrives, it arrives.
A= You’re right. There will always be differences between the ideal and reality. While you are choosing other people, they are choosing you as well. Even when you find someone with good qualities, you may not be compatible with him and might break up. Perhaps in the end, it will be Eric Tsang after all? Haha
The Weak Will Be Trampled
K= Earlier on your blog, did you get into an argument due to “patriotic” issues? Why did you let your anger out?
A= Netizens like to create trouble in blogs. Sometimes they will say I look ugly or call tell me, ‘Old Man Wong, shut X up!’ I don’t care. When they say I am a traitor and insult my character, isn’t that too much? A lot of so-called patriots latch on to a few words you said and bother you. Afterwards, many netizens scolded the ‘patriots’ before they disappeared. There are many bad people in this world. I separate Hong Kong people from mainland people and they will criticize you for the separation. I cannot tolerate it. There were four or five such ‘patriots,’ but if they grew in size and caused more trouble, it would be a headache. Many people in the industry faced the same bullying.
K= I have been [bullied] too. After watching The Scoop <東張西望>, a netizen felt I was fighting to speak more lines among the female hosts. The person challenged me and wrote, ‘The most pretentious female artist in Hong Kong.’ I wrote back, ‘Really, in the entire Hong Kong? That outstanding?’ Finally, his aggression lessened and he even thanked me in the end.
Anthony Wong Complements Koni Lui for High EQ
A= I was saying you’re smart! Your reaction to rumors with Eric Tsang was great! At the time, you said you wanted to thank the media for giving you a front cover. You have a high EQ!
K= Yes, the media loves me. When it was my birthday, they gave me a front cover. I admit I have a high EQ. I give my friends a lot of positive energy.
A= It’s good that you’re using this method. However, ‘old oily sticks’ like myself would sound weak if I used the same methods, inviting others to step on me. I have to use the forceful Shaolin method by landing punches directly on their faces and mouths! I have to state clearly to others that I am poisonous, terrible, and I respond quickly. You’re going to compete with me? I can fight and write well. Don’t attempt to mess with me! I have a limited tolerance.
Koni Lui’s Plunging Red Dress at Mr. Hong Kong Pageant Caused an Uproar
K= At last year’s Mr. Hong Kong pageant, many people said the neckline of my red dress plunged too deeply. Looking beautiful was my top priority. I discussed with my designer that the dress will not result in any accidental exposure before I decided to wear it.
A= Wearing such a revealing dress and not revealing any ‘points,’ of course you will be scolded! Actually, these plunging dresses are very commonplace. Shu Qi has worn these type of dresses. At this year’s Oscar awards, all the actresses wore these type of dresses and once in a while, there will even be accidental exposures. You were so professional in not revealing yourself!
K= I am quite tomboyish in personality. My normal attire is not sexy at all! It depends on whether the event requires it. The most important thing is that the outfit is safe and will not result in accidental exposure, which never happened to me before.
A= I don’t know what people are complaining about! An artist is praised for not stealing the spotlight and not be high-profile? That’s the end of the discussion! I hate people who have a bad heart and step on others to elevate themselves. I always praise that you wore the red dress extremely well. The overall feeling was great, not just your figure. Some people just have dirty minds. After I saw you in the dress, how come I didn’t focus only on your body? Of course, a part of me did pay attention to it as well, haha!
K= You mentioned that being sexy and overexposed are different.
A= Some people expose for the sake of exposing. Exposing flesh does not equate to being sexy; the manner of dressing can be very disgusting. The spirit of a person does not reside in the chest, but rather in the eyes. Since the eyes are the windows to the soul, this will affect a person’s demeanor.
K= I did not keep unhappy thoughts in my heart. I just act like myself. Right now, I just want to make more money. Earlier I bought an apartment and have to mortgage it. The house is very small.
A= Since it is a small apartment, it proves that you are making money in an honest way and did not attend dinners with rich men.
K= I have always been a decent woman. It’s sweeter to earn your own money.
Interviewing Best Actor, Anthony Wong, Koni Lui approached the discussion gingerly. The French restaurant’s main chef especially prepared a black truffle pasta dish for Anthony. The manager of the restaurant said, “Koni’s dish was prepared by the secondary dish; was the taste different?” Koni whined that it was unfair treatment, while Anthony praised the chef’s culinary skills, “I love to cook; perhaps he is willing to share a few cooking tips?”
