Gregory Wong’s (王宗堯) love life isn’t doing too well.
In May 2016, the 38-year-old actor broke up with his then-girlfriend, model Christy Lai (黎紀君), after dating for eight months. Christy is 16 years younger than Gregory, and was in the process of completing her management degree at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University when they were still dating.
In July 2016, Gregory started dating actress Hong Kong Film Award-nominated actress Jacky Cai (蔡潔), whom he grew close with after collaborating in the film Lazy Hazy Crazy <同班同學> in 2015. Their relationship was exposed after they were spotted at a park, playing with their drone camera. Their relationship lasted for about half a year.
Speculations of Jacky and Gregory’s breakup came after the actor posted an ambiguous posted on social media earlier this week. Gregory wrote, “First day back! Things have changed in the past three months—you cannot turn back time for some things.” He added in the hashtags: “I still need to live. Still getting used to my new life. Saying goodbye to the old and welcoming the new in 2017.” He also said, “How does it feel like to disappear?”
Reporters phoned Jacky, who then confirmed that she has broken up with Gregory. She did not reveal when, but she expressed that she didn’t want to drag out their relationship. Because of work, the two of them could not spend enough time together to communicate. It was a difficult decision for her to make.

Reporters then contacted Gregory about the split. The actor appears unwilling to let Jacky go. “I still don’t know what’s going on. I hope we can talk this through. If it was a misunderstanding, there is still time to fix it. Maybe [the reporters] can help me ask her.”
Regarding the rumor that Jacky hasn’t contacted Gregory in three months, he said, “That’s not true. It hasn’t been that long, but it’s true that we haven’t talked in a while.” On why he said he wanted to “disappear” on social media, Gregory said vaguely, “There were things that disappeared. There were people that disappeared.”
