Friends Forever: Christine Ng and Joel Chan Make Up in Japan

A drunken night and a stupid mistake tossed Christine Ng (伍詠薇) and Joel Chan’s (陳山聰) friendship to the gutter.

In 2011, during a birthday party, Joel was dared by his friends to call Christine and tell her that they were no longer friends as a practical joke. When Joel told Christine to never find him again, Christine didn’t appreciate the joke and ended their friendship immediately. Joel had apologized to Christine on multiple occasions, but she never changed her mind.

But good friends are hard to come by, and fate eventually led them back together. A few days ago, Joel updated his social media with a surprising message—that he and Christine have truly become friends again.

Their friendship was rekindled in a trip to Japan. Their meet up in Japan was spontaneous—Joel was there for a marathon, while Christine was there on vacation.

After coming across each other, the two actors immediately went out to dinner. They shared some photos of them together on social media. Joel wrote, “A kiss cures a thousand resents. It speaks for itself! I love you!”

In a long-distance phone interview with Joel, he said, “This is really the fate that we share. It really cleared the misunderstandings between us. I’ve been holding this regret for many years.” (Did you guys drink to celebrate?) “It’s a secret!”

“Needless to say, I am very happy,” said Christine. “Our encounter in Japan was by fate.”

Their mutual friend, Sharon Chan (陳敏之), said, “I’m so happy for them! Now that we’re getting older, it’s become harder to find true friends. We need to cherish them all!”
