Does martial arts star, Sammo Hung (洪金寶), have romantic ties with 21-year-old Wang Qinyi (王沁宜)? According to Next Magazine, the 63-year-old soon-to-be grandfather met with the young actress for dinner and reportedly checked into a hotel together for three days, sparking speculations of the illicit affair.
A Three Month Affair?
Sammo Hung and Wang Qinyi have known each other for at least three months. In May, Qinyi flew to Hong Kong, in which she was photographed accompanied by Sammo touring the Tsim Tsa Tsui district.
It was rumored that without Sammo’s recommendation of Wang Qinyi, the newcomer would be unable to land her first leading role in mainland Chinese drama, Risking One’s Life <出生入死>.
On August 30, Sammo flew from Shenzhen to Hengdian, China to visit Wang Qinyi. At approximately 6 PM, Sammo, his assistant and chauffeur arrived at Qinyi’s filming location to pick her up. Upon seeing Sammo and his entourage, Qinyi immediately helped Sammo check in at a luxury hotel, after which the group of four headed out for dinner, staying at the restaurant until 8 PM. Upon leaving, Qinyi took care to support Sammo and help him climb into the car.
Arriving back at the hotel, Qinyi repeatedly turned her head to make sure that Sammo did not falter in his steps. After Sammo and Qinyi were settled at the hotel, his assistant and chauffeur quietly drove away from the hotel premises.
Sammo Accompanies Qinyi to Work
The following morning, Sammo diligently accompanied Qinyi to the filming set. The pair did not return to their hotel until 8:30 PM, in which Sammo appeared to be extremely tired, while Qinyi continued to be attentive to his needs.
On the third morning, Sammo left the hotel alone to pick up breakfast for Qinyi, who was already filming and would be able to be dismissed early that day. Returning back to the hotel, the pair rested until 4 PM and then drove to a nearby hotel to meet with a mainland Chinese producer. Sammo introduced Qinyi to the producer.
Qinyi then checked into a two-star hotel with the rest of Risking One’s Life filming crew, indicating the end of her rendezvous with Sammo.
Sammo’s Wife: “What Can I Say?”
After returning to Hong Kong, Sammo was not seen heading outside with his second wife, Joyce Godenzi (高麗虹), with whom he has been married for 17 years. Joyce visited her mother, who has been hospitalized, with Sammo’s son from his first marriage, Timmy Hung (洪天明) and his pregnant wife, Janet Chow (周家蔚).
A Next Magazine reporter confronted Joyce Godenzi with Sammo and Qinyi’s photos. When prompted that Sammo was photographed with Qinyi at the hotel, Joyce replied, “Were you able to take photos inside the hotel room?” When the reporter pointed out that Sammo and Qinyi were at the hotel for three consecutive days, Joyce said, “I’m not sure, what can I say?”
Joyce added that she trusted her husband and that their relationship was very good.
