Virginia Lok Said Jacqueline Wong’s Comeback is Dependent on Several Factors
Does Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) deserve another chance after her cheating scandal with Andy Hui (許志安) in 2019? TVB executive Virginia Lok (樂易玲) seems to think so, and has met up with the 31-year-old actress to discuss what could be possible future plans.
At a recent promotional event, Ms. Lok disclosed that she has always stayed in touch with Jacqueline, and they had breakfast together last week. Ms. Lok shared that Jacqueline is in good spirits, “She has a lot of friends who care for her. She also said that she has been exercising, and she looked very fit to me.”
In their conversation, Jacqueline stated her intentions of returning to the entertainment industry to Ms. Lok. “She was the one to bring up the topic this time, and we talked about it. Since she is still young, we thought about what opportunities there are for her in the future. We didn’t delve too deeply into the topic, because I didn’t want to give her any pressure. At the end of our breakfast, I asked what her plans are. Will she be staying or leaving? I wasn’t referring to TVB, but Hong Kong and the entertainment industry in general. She said that she would give it some serious thought.”
Ms. Lok confirmed that Jacqueline is still an employee of TVB, “She was a fadan that the company was heavily promoting at the time, so they signed her to a long contract. I didn’t take a close look at the terms, but it is definitely not shorter than eight years.”
If Jacqueline does decide to leave, then she will have to discuss contractual issues with the company. Ms. Lok said that Jacqueline’s concern is not over money, as she is not going to work for a competitor anyway. “I hope she doesn’t make an impulsive decision. I will meet up with her again later.” Since Jacqueline still has a salary check that she has not picked up, Ms. Lok will bring it to her the next time they see each other.
Asked if Jacqueline decides to stay in the entertainment industry, would TVB give her another chance? Ms. Lok hesitated to respond further, “This is not as simple as whether she wants to stay or not. We also need to see whether the public will accept her. If they don’t, then there is no point in coming out and having people make negative comments about her.”
