Accompanied by Pregnant Wife, Benny Chan Intends to Apologize to Rose Chan
Benny Chan (陳浩民) and Joe Ma’s (馬德鐘) touching Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) inappropriately in Hengdian, China evolved into scandal shocking the entire Hong Kong! Yesterday, Benny and his wife, Lisa, returned to Hong Kong to await the impending birth of their first child. Due to the scandalous air, Benny and Lisa had to proceed carefully and did not step outside of their apartment in Hong Kong. Benny decided unwaveringly to appear with his wife to apologize before Rose Chan and admit his wrongdoings, hoping that his sincerity will salvage his image.
Scolded by the entire city of Hong Kong, Benny has not made an official appearance yet. Last night, a large crowd of reporters gathered outside Benny’s residence. At the time, someone dialed the police hotline seeking help. Police officers arrived on site to investigate the situation. The Oriental Daily reporter successfully reached Benny’s cell phone. Benny replied, “I am locked at home reflecting on the incident. I cannot speak to you; please let me go!” Benny quickly hung up the phone.
No Time to Care About Joe Ma
In a telephone interview, Benny’s manager, Charlie Lam (林查理), stated, “Today at 4 PM, Benny and his wife will appear to discuss the incident and issue a public apology.” (Joe Ma drew a clear boundary away from Benny Chan; are the men’s friendship over?) “I do not have time to handle that aspect. The immediate priority is to make [Rose’s sifu] Sin Kwok Lam (冼國林) not as angry!”
The reporter received Benny’s “press conference invitation” last night, in which Benny’s choice in words referenced his regret and indicated that he was at home repeatedly contemplating his wrongdoings, which hurt Rose Chan immensely. Benny indicated that upon learning his lesson, he sincerely regretted his actions.
Benny’s Wife Forgives Him
About to give birth to their first child, Benny’s wife, Lisa, loved him deeply and posted a photo of her pregnant state online. Lisa posted a well known quote from Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, “It does not matter what the entire world thinks; I believe that my feelings are right….If you like something, you will be able to persevere. If you do not like it, then it will not last no matter what the circumstances are.” Lisa signed off the message with, “Love you @Benny.” It was apparent that Lisa had already forgiven Benny’s wrongdoings. Afterwards, Lisa reposted a photo of Jessica Hsuan’s (宣萱) dogs, commenting that they were cute. Lisa appeared to be in a good mood.
Below is the text of Benny Chan’s “press conference invitation” tomorrow:
Dear media friends:
Regarding Miss Rose Chan’s unpleasant experience several days ago, Benny Chan felt deep regret over his conduct after getting drunk in Hengdian. Over the last few days, he remained home blaming himself and reflecting upon the matter. His misconduct not only hurt Miss Rose Chan and friends who loved her, but also Benny’s parents, his wife, who is about to give birth, and his friends who support him. Benny felt an unlimited amount of regret. Since the mistake has been committed, Benny Chan sincerely wishes to appear publicly to discuss the incident and convey the sincerity in his apology to Rose Chan. Benny’s wife was heartbroken and sad over the incident. Hopefully, after this lesson has been learned, Benny will sincerely regret his actions. We also hope that Lisa will also forgive her husband’s misconduct after he got drunk. Tomorrow, Lisa will accompany Benny at the press conference to discuss the incident and will officially apologize to Miss Rose Chan.

Jayne: We will see what Benny has to say at the press conference, in which I expect general sweeping statements will be made, without detailed description or explanation of what had actually occurred. I think Benny’s public apology will be very similar to the above text in the press conference invitation sent to the media.
It sounds as if Benny’s manager, Charlie, is forcing him to stay home and think about what happened, instead of Benny doing it out of self-will.
Will Benny cry at the press conference tomorrow?
