Because of her sister, Jacqueline Wong’s (黃心穎) scandal, “On Sum” (安心偷食), Scarlett Wong’s (黃心美) relationship with her billionaire boyfriend, Justin Ma (馬桂烽) was objected by his family and they ended their two years romance. Scarlett was discovered by an Apple Daily HK (蘋果) reader through (爆相爆片) that she appeared lonely while taking the train after the separation more than 2 months. On 24th July 2019, she shared photo of herself smiling under the sunshine and left a message: “Hey, you will realise the unhappiness will be over eventually. Fighting!”
Some fans posted their message: “It is a classic sentence! There is some tears as well.” It turned out that Scarlett spoke about it while hosting ViuTV show, Travel in Darkness (暗中旅行) and replied to her fan: “You are travelling secretly too!” The netizens added their comments: “It is an authentic travel note during the travelling including the personal experiences. It is very influential and you earn our respect by saying the truth. Thank you and it is suffering for these past two months.”
Scarlett rooted for the netizen and said: “I am sure you will overcome it! Fighting!” The netizen replied: “I will definitely make it if you can do it.” Scarlett said: “Yes.” However, some netizens gave their criticisms: “Luckily, Carrie Lam (林鄭) helps your sister to shield the bullets.” Another netizen said: “It is nonsense when many people believe Andy Hui (許志安) should thank Carrie Lam.” They also told Scarlett to work harder as she was “attacked” by the netizens once “On Sum” scandal was exposed on that day.
