On 7th February, wealthy businessman Mark Chan (陳恩德) distributed new year goodies at a charity event in Fanling. When mentioned about cancelling all advertisements in TVB because of “unreasonable” demands related to Ali Lee (李佳芯), Mark replied: “There are other platforms such as ViuTV. (Did Ms Virginia Lok (樂小姐) revert to you?) I think so. We are handling it now. My colleagues are contacting TVB so I do not really bother. (Did you keep in touch with Ali?) I did wish her happy new year and it is both of us only. (Did she reply you?) I am looking forward to it. Haha! (Read your text but no reply?) Haha. I have no idea. Wishing happy new year is a form of courtesy.”

Asking if he planned to keep a distance from Ali in order to reduce the gossips, Mark said: “We are friends and it does not really matter. (Ms Lok explained it was the managers’ duty to protect and respect artistes’ decisions.) I reckon my colleagues will not accept such reply and leave it to them. (Yourself?) They will handle it based on my decision.”

Checking if he was satisfied with the services provided by ViuTV, Mark responded: “I do not really liaise with them directly. It is best to show mutual respect. (Ms Catherine Tsang (珍姐) and Ms Lok have conflicts with Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍)?) I am only aware of it after reading the news article. It is not surprising. Haha. (Do you expect it?) I know them for a long time. Haha. (They argue frequently?) It is normal to have politics in the company. Anyway, it is inconvenient for me to comment. (Did Catherine approach you?) We are good friends. Honestly speaking, it is best to keep a distance and I will not deliberately contact her. (Worry about Ali’s future?) I do not really want to affect her career. Lately, she participates in a mini movie and let’s see if it will be broadcasting.”
