In the recent year, Elanne Kong concentrated on the Mainland market, shooting series after series up north. It was also rumored, she and Mainland actor Yuan Hong (袁弘) sparked love, making her career and love life run smoothly. However, unfortunate incidents happens to Elanne time after time. Following a burglary late last year, yesterday morning Elanne encounters an angry driver that suddenly refused to drive her and kicked her out of the car. Aside from being unlucky, Elanne was also frightened to death.
Initially, Elanne was in Xiangshan shooting for Mainland drama Mulan (巾幗大將軍), but yesterday on the 7th day of Lunar New Year, she and her colleague Candy Liu, and their two assistants set out on the trip back to Hong Kong. A ride on a 7-seater van was prepared for them to take a road trip from Xiangshan to Hangzhou airport. The four girls also had a lot of luggage, so basically the van only had just enough space to fit the four girls and their luggage. However, the driver was already in opposition the previous night, insisting that he has to bring his two relatives along and squeeze in the 7-seater.
As they were heading to Hangzhou, the driver was speeding on the roads and suddenly he started shouting in the car because he was having an argument with the crew over the phone: "No matter what, you must get a car and send my two relatives back to Hangdian, otherwise you will have to pay for them to leave. If not, I won't take [the girls] to the airport and instead make a speedy U-turn back to drive [my relatives] back to Hangdian myself!" Results, the driver heartlessly, rushed Elanne and her colleagues off the van and left them in the middle of the highway under the cold weather!
Although the girls were able to eventually make it safety to the airport, Elanne was still furious at the driver, Master Xu, for his terrible behavior. She immediately wrote about the whole incident on Weibo. She expressed if there was extra space in the van, she and her colleagues wouldn't have mind if the two relatives tagged along with them, but the 7-seater was already very tight, so packed that there was no leg room at all. Master Xu knew the four of them were in a rush to catch their flight, but he still used them to threaten the crew. Elanne exploded that Master Xu is inhumane: "He abandoned four girls in the middle of the highway and in the cold weather. I took the taxi to the airport myself, that Master Xu! Please, can you be a little more humane?!" Elanne urged other artists to be cautious, if in the future they have to shoot in that location, watch out for those rotten drivers. As for Candy Liu, she replied bawling out: "People like him that can survive until now, consider him good luck! It is because he saw that us girls were easy to bully!"
Last night, Elanne finally arrived safely in Hong Kong. When she accepted [Oriental Daily]'s interview, she was still frightened: "That driver was constantly on the phone while he was driving us, his emotions went up and down, and almost flipped the car! Later, we decided to get off the van because we're only four girls without any strength, it's too dangerous, I would rather drive myself." Elanne is born in the year of the Dragon, her fortune this year says she will encounter unfortunate incidents, she laughed and said perhaps because she hasn't wrapped a peach blossom around herself and walked a circle yet. As for taking legal action, she gives her company full authority to handle it for her.
As Elanne's boss, Lam Siu Ming, when he learned his artist Elanne was bullied in Mainland, he very unhappy and angered. Over the phone, he did not hesitate to say he will get to the bottom of this incident: "How can such incident happen? It is about the personal safety of four girls, how can he just abandon them in the middle of the highway, under the cold weather. He absolutely does not have any sense of responsibility for his job and is completely immoral! Anyway, I will find this driver and take legal action on him!"
