Because of the scandal between Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) and Andy Hui (安心偷食) that angered the whole world, their images were tarnished and both were forced to stop their work immediately. It also causes heavy impacts to her new drama such as The Offliners (堅離地愛堅離地) series is suspended and My Commissioned Lover (婚姻合伙人) starring Matt Yeung (楊明) and Samantha Ko (高海寧) become the next drama to broadcast after The Defected (鐵探) series.
It is the first time for Owen Cheung (張振朗) and Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) to play the male and female lead for their first time in The Offliners drama and their efforts are wasted simply because of Jacqueline’s scandal. When asked about her thoughts due to the scandal which affected her new series earlier, Katy appeared normal when replying: “I will not feel disappointed and the company has its own arrangement. I have other drama including Assassin (殺手) and Justice Bao: The First Year (包青天再起風雲) which are yet to air and currently filming The Great Soy Factory (大醬園). I am not worried about the audiences failing to see me.”
However based on insiders’ information, Owen and Katy did complain to their friends. In July 2018, she fell sick when shooting a show and was hospitalised for 3 days due to an unbalanced ear fluid in March 2019, and her mood also affected her menses. The insider said: “Katy has weak immune system and insufficient rest because of filming series continuously. Heard that her menses is irregular and her poor mood might be the problem.” In addition, East Week (東周) discovered Katy looked troubled while shopping at a mall in Tseung Kwan O a few days ago. She was browsing female toiletries at a supermarket and “splurging” in order to vent her frustration.
