Carman Lee Doesn’t Regret Giving Up Career for Ex-Boyfriend
Carman Lee (李若彤) regained her popularity again since the broadcast of Never Dance Alone <女人俱樂部>. Portraying a middle-aged housewife who tries to juggle her family’s happiness with her own interests, Carman’s portrayal of a mother’s sacrifices struck a chord with viewers. Despite her realistic portrayal as a housewife, Carman only experienced motherhood through raising her niece, but she has never been married.
Many years ago, Carman met wealthy businessman, Kwok Ying Chuen (郭應泉), whom she had considered spending the rest of her life with. While they were deeply in love, the relationship raised eyebrows when it was reported that Carman was a third wheel in her Kwok’s relationship. Carman clarified, “At the time, his marriage issues have already been cleared up. We had a very memorable and deep love relationship. I even thought about marrying him before.”
Since Carman prioritized love over her own career, she made the decision to slowly retire from the entertainment industry at the height of her fame. Even though they eventually parted ways, Carman does not regret her decision. She explained, “At the time, family came first for me. I hoped to be together with him. Although we didn’t register marriage, but our relationship was similar to being married. I know that he didn’t want me to work in the entertainment industry, so I gave up on my career. I tried to do my best as a wife; I’m a very traditional woman.”
On a lighter note, Carman cleared up confusion about her real age. Although some reports claimed that Carman is only 39-years-old, the actress revealed that her age has always been a secret. A senior previously explained to her that revealing her age would only limit her acting lifespan.
