Frankie Lam, an Obedient Husband?

Married for 14 years to Kenix Kwok (郭可盈), Frankie Lam (林文龍) is often perceived as an obedient husband. In a recent interview, Frankie addressed speculation that his wife wears the pants in their marriage.

The 50-year-old actor has recently been put into the spotlight again with his performance in TVB drama Another Era <再創世紀> as the intelligent, worldly Duncan, with viewers commending him for the improvement in his acting. In particular, viewers have applauded his breakup scene with co-star Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), despite him having no dialogue in that scene. Frankie says that it makes him very happy that viewers are serious about watching the show, and that “in fact, it is not necessary to yell and cry in order to be a good actor.”

The worldliness of Frankie’s character in Another Era is also reflected in his personal life. Surrounding gossip that Kenix is the boss in their marriage, Frankie said that he doesn’t care, and that it’s nobody’s business: “Although she has not worked for 10 years, and I have been working all this time, people still say that her family gives me money. But I can’t do anything about it. What can I do? Lots of people will say that I’m scared of my wife, that I’m useless. I think a better way of saying it is that I respect my wife. Being scared of and respecting my wife is the same thing.”

As the loving husband he is, Frankie defended Kenix and denied rumors that she is bad tempered: “She has a bit of a temper and a straightforward personality, and everyone will write that she has a bad temperament. But who doesn’t have a temper? She is like a young girl. She isn’t as experienced as I am, so if she doesn’t like things she will speak out about it. But everyone deals with things differently, and she isn’t actually a bad tempered person.”

  1. Daughter looks exactly like her dad. Little of her mom, except forehead (then again – entire family has the same forehead).

  2. So what if her family gives him money, nothing wrong with that. It shows they care about him and appreciate him. This old time Jurassic nonsense about a man having to have more money than the wife has become obsolete, too sad the asians haven’t realized it. At least Kenix does not try to publicly strip Frankie Lam of his masculinity, like Barbie Hsu does to her husband. Some men are happy to let their wives take charge. Just ask Fat Gor, and he is happily married.
