41-year-old Raymond Lam (林峯) and his wife Carina Zhang (張馨月) are the biggest highlight in Chinese variety show, Viva La Romance 5 (妻子的浪漫旅行5). It turns out he agrees to it simply because of Carina. In an interview at another program (甜蜜的任務), Raymond discussed about his private, marriage problems and his thoughts about being a father for the first time.
In fact, Raymond handles his personal affair in a low-key manner all along and said: “The show enhances my understanding about my wife’s inner heart. We are married for more than a year but I am working most of the time. This time, it makes me realise that I should make some time adjustment and spend more time with my family.”
Raymond’s daughter was born last year and he felt he was dreaming when carrying her for the first time: “Yes, my daughter is important but Carina remains number 1 in my heart. I wish to return home and see my wife immediately after finishing work. I feel I was dreaming when carrying my daughter for the first time and still feel very emotional until now.”
When asked about his method related to pacifying Carina during an argument, Raymond replied he will apologise immediately: “I am in the wrong regardless of any arguments. She is a gentle, thoughtful and good woman.” His action won compliments from many netizen and he also revealed it was her idea to set her name as “LP” when she called him every time.”
As Hunan Television program Sisters Who Make Waves (乘風破浪的姐姐) received excellent reviews last year and it will be producing another show (披荊斬棘的哥哥) for male artistes, Raymond rejected the invitation because of his spouse: “I wish to spend additional time with my family. It is a professional show and I know that we need to spend a long time for training, before competing on the stage.” Evidently, it shows the importance of his wife in his heart.
When many netizens wished Raymond will hold a concert again as it had been more than a year, he said: “I think it is impossible this year and let’s see how it goes for next year. Honestly speaking, I have finished recording new songs and it should be releasing in end 2021.”
