The whole Chinese entertainment industry was shaken by the divorce of Leon Lai (黎明) and Gaile Lok (樂基兒) last October. The couple’s relationship lasted for four years before they finally decided to file for divorce in mid-2012, citing irreconcilable differences.

Gaile formally responded to the press regarding their divorce in October, but Leon chose to stay quiet on the matter, a move that stays true to Leon’s low-profile style. Leon finally gave a musical response on the matter five months later on March 26. The Mandarin single, “I Can Forget You” <我可以忘記你>, is his first music release since 2011. The rueful ballad is composed by Leon’s good friend, Ronald Ng (伍樂城), and the lyrics were written by Cheung Cho Kiu (張楚翹) of Baron Music.

In the form of song, Leon apologizes to Gaile for “hurting only you; I was the selfish and cruel one.” He also wishes his ex-wife happiness, singing, “You peacefully live on, and I will quietly survive.”

However, Leon did not express any regret on the divorce decision. The lyrics then read, “But I do not feel bad [about it]… I never loved you. I only loved myself. You allowed me to test the extent of my infatuation… [you] allowed me to satisfy my curiosity. I only had the guts to play games.” Leon then apologized once again, “Sorry. Forgive me for never loving you. I only loved missing you.”

For the past few months, Leon stayed out of the spotlight. Various tabloid reports claimed that Leon was extremely heartbroken and went traveling to forget about Gaile. With the release of “I Can Forget You,” it appears that Leon has finally succeeded in moving on with his life.

      Apologies? More like stabbing her in the heart, kicking her in the head, punching her in the stomach, combined in one.
      Telling your ex you never loved her is extremely cruel, not to mention he announced it to the whole world, and even memorialised it in history with a song. Gawd.

        I had to re-read those lines a few times. Could it be that he meant to say that he never loved her the way she should be loved etc? Bc true love, one should not be controlled by a selfish husband/wife etc.

          Irregardless of how well-intending he is, would a girl calmly dissect the message to come to your conclusion? Thats easy for an outsider like you to interpret, but definitely not the recipient involved with their hearts.

          “I have never loved you.”

          Place yourself in the shoes of a girl who gets that message after a break up from a serious, long term relationship. No matter what else he wrote, that sticks out jarringly.

          Furthermore, leon has a professional song writer.

          “I have never loved you”
          “I have never loved you the way you should be loved”
          The difference is harsh. The songwriter would be able to catch that.

      Song(music) sounds incredibly generic. What happened to the catchy tunes he use to make?

      No wonder the younger generation is most popular if this is the stuff he puts out lately.
      I know he is older and he probably can’t get away with the dance stuff anymore, but he still use to have a lot of great slower tunes that would get stuck in your head.

      In other words, Gaile Lok was just a throphy wife for him. She represented what he wished for in a wife – a hot young woman who let him have his freedom because she was independent and non-clingy, was different enough from him to intrigue him. He loved *the idea* of having a modern young wife like Gaile but wasn’t actually in love with her, or loved her for who she truly was. Leon is actually an old-fashioned chinese man who’d be better suited with a submissive and demure wife.

      MHO – Leon Lai did not meant what the article portrayed him as. We all know he’s infamous for his golden phrases that just don’t make sense but to himself. I would say this song is likely the same way.

      I remember he had a song out awhile back called, “ni hen ai wo” and the lyrics were a little twisted as well, very good song nonetheless.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        I was thinking the same thoughts. It’s not like he wrote the song himself, someone else did. Just because he “sings” it does not mean that he actually saying it or means any of it. But of course, when words come out of your mouth even when singing it is easy to say that it is the singer that means it which is usually not true. Therefore, I don’t get why everyone is saying that he is conveying those words to Gaile??? Many singers just sing songs, however, it does not mean that they are associated with any of the songs or mean to say anything with the songs. I wonder why just because Leon sang this song that everyone immediately thinks that is what is he saying to his ex wife?? Very strange…

        • Nicole replied:

          Simple.

          With Leon’s status, we would like to think of him as a singer singing something heartfelt, rather than a generic pop/idol singer picking up manufactured songs with built-in lyrics.

          Similarly, my expectation of Tony Leung and Stephen Chow is way different from my expectations of those “many actors” out there.

          Are we thinking too highly of Leon?

          Maybe you think he’s the “generic pop singer” who just sings whatever his company throws at him like those “many singers” you refer to, even though he doesn’t need the money or the fame. Okay…..

          Even if he does, it does not mean that just because he sings this song that it is aimed towards his ex wife. Also, even when someone writes their own songs, you are still left wondering who they are referring to when they write it. I remember in my poetry class, we always read poems written by the actual authors themselves. However, they were not always referring to themselves but others that they knew or just heard about…

          Leon has been in this business far too long to not know the consequences of singing and releasing this song a few months after his divorce has finalized. Anybody would put the two together and put in their judgement towards this song and their relationship.

          No matter what Leon’s intentions were Galle is being dragged into the mud once again for this song. If he truly felt sorry for not loving her and he wants to hold responsibility for it, do it in private.

      I definitely got that vibe that Gaile was unique for him as a girlfriend and then eventual wife. She’s a free spirit who enjoys her independence and she’s westernized so her outlook in life is probably different to him. I think they were too different from each other and not as compatible as they first thought and I think Leon is more old fashioned and he had realized this.

      To represent in his song that he never loved her was cruel in my opinion. I think he was right in thinking he was selfish he only cared about his own feelings.

      A different point of view..maybe he knows Gaille loves him very much and is suffering much in the break up. So he sings this song to tell her to let go because he never loved her. Made himself the bad guy so that she’ll let go and move on.

      People are too boring living a life so they take off some time to spout rubbish which is translating a simple song into an apology statement. Have Leon Lai personally publicly stated that this song was written for Gaile Lok. Sorry to say this but Gaile Lok is definitely, absolutely a gold digger. I doubt if she ever loved him before. She was taking his money and getting off with a dude. Before marrying him, who even knows who the hell she is. Feel sorry for Leon. He was cheated by this woman and even lost his money to her. He should not marry this gold digger in the first place. Gaile Lok is definitely talentless person. She will spend all money she got from Leon on her dude. When it runs out, she’s going back to sell her body again by finding another famous and wealthy man to marry then divorce him with big marriage compensation.

      • TVBFanatic replied:

        Pretty one sided comment. He still married her amidst the rumours and warning did he not? You think he didn’t have any idea that she might be after his money? Given the age gap etc?

        I’m not saying she did – but to lay all the blame at her feet even if true would also ignore that he was willing to give her the money just to have a “pretty girl” by his side, whether she loved him or not.

        • Nori replied:

          I’m not saying that everything I said is true. Put everything in perspective, since dating Leon Lai, Gaile Lok’s career had risen. Marrying him had helped her gain even more frame and wealth. Now divorced him and received a big money compensation and even started seeing another dude publicly. When she was in need of frame and money, marriage to Leon was her best and only choice. Now with the mansions and money from him, it’s time to call it quit. It’s simply interpreted “I’ve been endured all these suffering with an old man like you for 4 years of my life. I think I deserve to be compensated more than ever. Now I’ve got everything I want,it’s time to end this game.”

          When people keep scolding gaile for being a gold digger, I really wonder if they think much of Leon lai.

          A gold digger marries the rich for their money.
          In their eyes, Leon lai must be an ugly, uncharismatic, unattractive, dull, pathetic old man with bad, boorish personality, who can only attract girls with his money and fame, and is so stupid and inexperienced in love, that he gets cheated easily.

          Good looking older men can be extremely attractive, and younger women often fall for their charm, experience and maturity.

          Of course, I do question when the young woman marry an old, bad tempered, cheating, fat and ugly man but Leon lai?

          -is Katie holmes a gold digger?
          -was princess di a gold digger?

      This guys portrays himself as a prince charming but he’s a royal arse hole. This guy even faked rumours about his wife’s pregnancy so that he would get more news coverage. He made his wife look like she had a miscarriage when she wasn’t even pregnant. All this simple and naive woman wanted from him was time to spend with her, and she still didn’t get it. He drove her to hurt her self so many times. It’s not the first time he has hurt the woman who loved him dearly. When he was with Hsu Chi, he didn’t acknowledge their relationship because it would affect his popularity. To add fuel to fire, he started playing around with starlets like Cecilia Cheung when she first came out. This guy is a vile, vile egomaniac. I guess women are drawn to selfish loser like him just because he’s got the money. So sad.

      I jsut think that Leon has no effort in his work currentyl or should I say that hes not doing his best at work. Look at what he is doing to some my favourite singers- Janice and Aarif. His comapny is a wreck right now as they are not doing any promotion for their artists and some of the artists are not even getting any work or exposure(Charles and EMily WOng). Im kind of fustrated and even more pathetic how Leon came up wiht this new single-could of spend more time with Janices new album since her new MVS were cheap and pathetic. Leon Lai is a mess right now.

THe fact that she has not exposure and not consistent with her music, she will not get anywhere. It’s sad to see another talented girl go to waste. I jsut wish all of them just swithc back to East Asia’s main branch. Jnaice will have much better songs if shes in another company. I use to think differently, but I now agree that its Leon’s fault and that he is wasting his singers.
