Husband Can’t Find Enough Work? Sonija Kwok: “I Only Want a Modest Life”
Having won the 1999 Miss Hong Kong Pageant and the 2000 Miss Chinese International Pageant, former TVB fadan Sonija Kwok (郭羨妮) was one of Hong Kong’s most promising actresses when she made her grand debut in the 2001 TVB anniversary drama, A Step Into the Past <尋秦記>. But after her low-profile marriage to Mainland Chinese action director Zhu Shaojie (朱少杰) in 2011, Sonija’s presence in the media declined.
Matters turned for the worst when a recent gossip report alleged that Sonija’s husband has been struggling to find jobs, thus putting Sonija as the sole breadwinner for their family. The rumor said Sonija ended up firing their family’s domestic worker to save more money, and also worked as her husband’s assistant and manager when she’s not filming series.
On March 3, Sonija uploaded a status on Weibo. In her positive message, Sonija hinted that she had read the gossip reports and rumors. She wrote in response, “I’ve always said that happiness stems from understanding what it means to be content and grateful. My profession may be an actor, but I am still a regular person who wants a simple and low-profile life. All I want is for my family to be healthy and happy. Those who understand me, will understand me. I’m not interested in explaining trivial matters.”
