Joel Chan (陳山聰) and Christine Ng (伍詠薇) are finally back to speaking terms after nearly five years. The estranged friends had a high-profile split in 2011, which was made known to the public when Christine went on Weibo to vent her disappointment with Joel. Christine subsequently unfollowed Joel on the social media site and completely cut off ties with him.
While Joel did attempt to make amends, Christine remained adamant and had no interest in mending their friendship. But the hard ice between these two former friends did melt away earlier this week, when both attended Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and Philip Lee’s (李乘德) wedding banquet in Hong Kong.
While promoting his new drama The Executioner <刀下留人> at a function on Tuesday, Joel shared that he had met up with a lot of old friends at Myolie’s wedding, including his estranged friend Christine.
“It was like a school reunion,” said Joel. “All old and former colleagues were gathered together, so I was very happy to see them again.”
Joel then admitted that he saw Christine at the banquet. “I did greet her. We then chatted for a bit, along with Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Sharon Chan (陳敏之). I haven’t seen [Christine] in many years.”
The Executioner actor said there was no awkwardness between them when they saw each other again. Asking if they have made up, Joel said, “We have always been fine, but [we drifted apart] because of a misunderstanding. Let bygones be bygones. We did talk about meeting up again for a meal.”
