Asked whether his father’s medical bills cost $500,000 HKD? Kenneth replied, “It does not matter how much the bills are. What’s most important is his health. As his son, it’s my responsibility to be filial to my parents.”
Kenneth was also photographed having tea with his parents earlier. For the sake of his father’s health, Kenneth was thoughtful when ordering the food.
