Since Shirley Yeung (楊思琦) gave birth to her daughter Krystal Yeung (楊卓穎) in March 2012, the single mother has been busily working side jobs and had little time for romance. However, she was seen entering struggling singer Chan Hong Kin’s (陳康健) apartment, with her mother and daughter in tow. Known for her frugal nature, Shirley may have met her match in the equally frugal Hong Kin!
In 2011, Shirley’s life took a chaotic turn when she broke up with long-time boyfriend, Gregory Lee (李泳豪) after becoming pregnant with former diver Andy Ng’s (吴帅) baby. Despite marriage intentions, Shirley and Andy eventually broke up before the birth of their daughter. For more than a year, the 35-year-old actress remained single as she focused on earning income to raise baby Krystal, often traveling to mainland China for stage performances.
A Date with Chan Hong Kin
Several days ago, Shirley, her mother, and daughter were seen at the Kwun Tong Town Centre eating some cheap sushi with Chan Hong Kin, who is speculated to be Shirley’s new boyfriend. Hong Kin had participated in the first season of talent competition, The Voice <超级巨声> and signed with TVB afterward. The former Hotel Management graduate has been struggling in his music career ever since. He reportedly spends only $100 HKD per day, in which his daily expenses only include lunch money and driving his car about. Hong Kin was allegedly dumped by his ex-girlfriend because he was too poor.
Afterward, Shirley and her family went to the public housing apartment where Hong Kin lived. They remained inside the building until 5 p.m., before Shirley and her family left and headed to a beauty salon.
When contacted, Hong Kin denied that they are dating. Hong Kin said, “She just started taking singing lessons from me. She didn’t go up to my house; it’s my friend’s temporary vacant apartment which we are using for the lessons.”
Gregory Lee Gives Blessings
Shirley’s former boyfriend, Gregory Lee and his parents, Lee Ka Ding (李家鼎) and Sze Ming (施明), were also notified of Shirley’s budding romance. While all three initially expressed they did not know about the matter, they later sent their blessings to Shirley.
Gregory was extremely curious about the identity of the man and pressed the reporters to reveal. “In any case, if she can find a man who truly loves her, then I will also give her my blessings.” Gregory said that he no longer keeps in touch with Shirley, but wished her well.
