After the birth of his daughter Elizabeth Chan (陳雅薷) in December 2011, Hong Kong actor and singer Benny Chan (陳浩民) took a brief one-year hiatus to care for his family. In honor of his family, Benny ended his hiatus with the release of the Mandarin-language EP I Love U <我愛你> on June 24, 2013.

I Love U, which consists of only three tracks, is described to be a gift from Benny to his family and fans. The first track, the title song “I Love U”, is a pop rock-inspired ballad that teaches listeners to cherish life and learn what it means to love happiness. The second track, “Thankful” <感謝>, reflects Benny’s gratitude to the loved ones in his life. The EP ends in a bittersweet note with the last track “Romantic Movie Song” <電影情歌>, a ballad about living alone and losing a loved one.

The former TVB actor expressed that music is the only outlet that allows himself to freely express his thoughts on life. Through his music, Benny hopes to “bring the sun to everyone’s eyes every day, to cherish one’s original life, and to learn how to love with life.”

Benny said, “Music is emotional. It is the most straightforward and purest way to touch the heart.”

MV Leaked Before Release

Benny and his record label, Avex Taiwan, was shocked to discover the music video for “I Love U” circulating in mainland Chinese streaming sites and YouTube last week. Avex stated that the copy was leaked to the public even before the production crew could see the final product themselves. The music video was filmed in Taiwan in early June.

Benny said, “I hope netizens will respect copyright. The producers and distributors worked hard to it put it together and have it released on a certain day.”

Avex Taiwan has yet to announce an official date for the music video release.

          I would not say so because many have moved on after the Edison scandal too. Time will make everyone forget most things. But it is true that that scandal will forever be a dark shadow which will appear from time to time….

      Very disappointed with the scandal, but at least he had admitted to it, instead of making up some story to cover it up. And wasn’t Joe Ma suppose to be involved too? He wasn’t affected with it at all!

      I had really enjoyed watching the series that Benny played in, so I’m hoping that he really has reflected on his mistake, and will be able to make a comeback…

        He has always been active so it is not like he retired. I also he has learned and everyone makes mistakes and deserves to be forgiven.

      If this sells at all it will be in the mainland wherehe’s been working since the scandal. Joe Ma wasnt that affected from it because he was more than bystander who didnt really stop it and joining in some of the jeers. He was almost as guilty though in my eyes.
