Myolie Wu Apologizes for Faking Johnson Lee Romance

Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) mislead fans into believing that she had fallen for Johnson Lee (李思捷), who had accompanied her on vacation to South Korea this week. Some fans were anxious that Myolie would get hurt in dating Johnson, who is known for his flirtatious personality. As the public reeled in shock and growing concerns were voiced online, Myolie revealed her “dating announcement” was only a prank. Realizing fans were upset, she promised, “I won’t lie to everyone again!”

Myolie announced earlier that she will be taking a vacation to South Korea with close friends, Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), and Paisley Wu (胡蓓蔚). When Johnson Lee showed up as the only male among the ladies, and Myolie was seen linking arms with him at the airport, it was suspected that the pair was dating. Myolie encouraged this belief by sharing a photo of herself hugging a mystery man and writing on her Sina Weibo account, “I’ve found [it]!” Although only the back of the man’s head was shown, his features resembled Johnson.

Disbelief flooded online social communities over Myolie’s dating choice, along with growing anxiety that Johnson’s colorful romantic past may lead to a poor match that would eventually leave Myolie heartbroken.

The prank lasted for approximately twelve hours, before Myolie finally admitted that she had tricked everyone. She realized that she had gone too far with the prank, explaining, “Actually ‘I’ve found’ a group of great friends who can share my happiness and grief. It’s great to have you guys! I also want to thank netizens’ concerns; I know you truly love me. Johnson said that I’m too serious and should goof off once in a while. I promise that I won’t lie to everyone again!”

Many expressed a sigh of relief that Myolie and Johnson were not a real couple. However, there was also some backlash over the lie. Johnson’s good friend, Joey Meng (萬綺雯) defended him, “It’s only a prank! He’s a big prankster and always does outrageous pranks!” Joey added, “The media always said that he has many girls, but they can all be friends with him. This proves that he has his reliable side. It didn’t hurt anyone; it’s only a prank!”

      I think the backlash is because everyone was worried Myolie would get hurt by dating Johnson. Our feelings were pranked upon.

      I thought that it was a pretty good prank since I was actually fooled into thinking it was real. “Johnson said that I’m too serious and should goof off once in a while.” I think so too and that’s why I was surprised that she was goofing off. Kevin Cheng actually fell for the prank, but Linda knew it had to be a joke. 🙂

      I am sure Johnson feels terrible because it was pretty unanimous when this prank was announced everyone voiced their reservation about his person, character and personality. Basically it backfired. I wonder how he feels to be called not good enough for Myolie?

      Anyway knew it was fake, but he is still a lucky guy to be surrounded by so many women in the picture above.

Johnson Lee is well known for his pranks and he’s not Myolie’s type so it’s obvious that they’re just joking. The media also deserves a laugh for their stupidity.

          I am with Aurora. Kidd: Myolie just wants to have some fun since Johnson said she’s too tense and serious, it’s not her fault if the media and netizens fell for it. The media should leave her alone since her weibo is entitled to her. I’m happy that Myolie said that her fans from her fan club are supportive of her.

          Whatever Myolie wants to write in her weibo is her freedom and the media has no right to go overboard and disturb her happiness just because they want quick news. What does this have to do with Myolie having many followers? That just means that she has many enough fans that care for her and support her in everything she does, although I have to say I’m disappointed at some stupid fakers who claim they’re his fans but were bashing Johnson’s personality. Johnson may be a cheating boyfriend and a playboy, but he’s Myolie’s best friend who cares for her a lot. Who cares about his past with other women since he’s not Myolie’s boyfriend. That alone should gain him some respect from Myolie’s fans 🙂

          If you want things to remain personal and no critique, then stop posting it in instagram, weibo, facebook, twitter and then cry about invasion of privacy. Luckily Myolie has more sense than to say that since after all it was a deliberate act for attention, and I suspect Johnson put her up to it. No worries for Myolie, her reputation is intact. But poor Johnson, now he knows how many of us think so poorly of him. He must be crying now.

          I don’t think he does. After all a person’s first assumption is he is naturally well liked. I think the last laugh is not on us or Myolie for pranking or teasing her fans but rather on Johnson himself. He looks like a fool now.

        Myolie is not an attention seeker. It was the stupid media who publishes her weibo entry and the stupid netizens who choose to take her joke for real when anyone familiar with HK and TVB can see right away that it’s only a prank. Myolie has nothing wrong in this!

          Um, yes, the HK Media might be stupid and I can’t stand the unscrupulous Media outlets either, but honestly, it’s their job to dig up gossip and publish it. Especially in this day and age with the popularity of social media, the traditional Media is digging through celebrities’ weibo, Facebook, Twitter, instagram, etc. ALL THE TIME trying to find stuff to publish — it happens EVERY DAY. To me, it’s naive for people to think that the Media won’t dig through someone’s weibo to find stuff — I thought everyone knew that if you put stuff on social media, it’s no longer “private”??

      • Anthony replied:

        Sorry if my comment was offensive but I was just amused on why would Myolie do that. For happiness? For fun? Her personal Weibo and Instragram is still open for the public to see and I don’t see what’s really funny about the prank. The Myolie I know is more sensible. Also, I am not a Myolie Wu hater. I never really pay much attention to her out of all the Fadans; I don’t like her nor do I hate her.

        Also I don’t think Johnson Lee was too upset. I mean his got a lot of friends from the entertainment circle like Joey Meng, and they will probably comfort him and support him anyway. Besides, I believe Johnson Lee is a person who has high self-esteem. No need to worry for Johnson

      That was an awesome prank that Myolie pulled off. Glad she apologized before obsessed fans had a hernia, lol. Myolie is a big girl, and I am sure if she chose to date Johnson, she is well aware of his flirtatious nature. The fans need to chill out and let these people date who they want to date. They may own a copy of these celebrities’ music and movies, but they do not own the celebrities. They need to stop telling these men and women who they can and cannot date.

      Good on Myolie for pulling the wool over the media’s eyes. A man and woman can hang out, have meals together and go on vacation without being involved in a romantic or sexual relationship. Look at Wang Lee Hom and A-Mei, him and Shu Qi and other women. They even travelled together and were just friends in a platonic way. These women felt safe with Lee Hom because there was no romantic pressure or expectation, and it was like having a girlfriend along for lunch or a vacation. The media jumped in and blared all over the place how they are dating, just like the Myolie and Johnson situation, and the fans lapped it up like hungry dogs.

      Good prank by Myolie, loved it.Now her controlling, over obsessed fans can get some much needed sleep, instead of being up, tearing out their hair about her dating Johnson, lol.

      Phew Thank god Myolie and Johnson weren’t real, she can do much better than the cheater Johnson Lee. I admit I was worried what’s gotten into her. If she’s not getting back with Bosco she should find the likes of Kevin Cheng or Ruco Chan instead of finding someone much worse off like Johnson who will make her insecure.

      That was an awesome prank there Myolie, great job nobody knew it was coming she has a great knack for humour and good on her to deceive the media! I hope this goes as popular as Linda’s prank last year which was nothing that special TBH. Johnson is good to have fun with but a NO NO as a love partner. I love all the pictures of them having fun in Korea that kissing picture was the best. It shows that even though you kiss a guy that doesn’t mean you guys are dating. There you go media, I like how the media was fooled by the smart Myolie 😀

    17. Nicoles says:

      It’s so sweet of Myolie to apologize because she didn’t do any wrong at all. I had already guessed Myolie was joking since Johnson Lee isn’t her type of romantic partner at all. How come so many are thinking it’s a real thing and starts getting disappointed at her? So gullible and ignorant since Johnson Lee is well known for his pranks. I don’t think these complaining people deserves to be called Myolie’s fans because her fan club members always stand by her no matter what happened!

      I agree the group kissing pic was great. I think it’s also a sarcastic slap at the ever high profile husband stealer Vanessa Yeung haha.

          Agreed. I don’t think Myolie is wearing any makeup. She looks fresh, young and beautiful except a little tired at the annoying reporters who are pushing her just because of a cute little prank that most of us will also do if given chance. I’m happy that Myolie can look great with little or no makeup compared to her peer who puts tonnes of makeup on their face in the series I’m watching now and still looks old for a 34 year old. I don’t even think the era of the series has a poor woman wearing thay heavy amount of makeup. Sorry if I digressed.

        • Nicoles replied:

          It simple. Myolie is all natural and has no plastic additions to her face that’s why she looks good and younger with very minimal make up. I don’t appreciate those who altered their face or wearing too thick makeups too while their makeupless face will look like a ghost.

          Who do you mean by someone wearing too much makeup in a wrong era in a tv series? @Barbiefan

          Let’s not argue over jaws and PS and baby fats. It will just open the whole PS floodgate again even though I disagree with you.

      I don’t think the prank would hurt anyone since TVB has also published these two photos on their facebook page. And the comments on their photo has been quite positive.. And then there are those fans that are extreme and didn’t see it as a joke.

      And since Nancy was the one who took the picture (according to asianuniverse), there was probably some kind of agreement between both Johnson and Myolie before posting it to weibo.
