Two days after the news of her husband Andy Hui’s dalliance with actress Jacqueline Wong broke, Hong Kong pop star Sammi Cheng has finally broken her silence about the affair.
In a statement published on her Instagram account (@sammi_chengsauman), she seemingly forgive Hui for his indiscretions, calling it “an important lesson for our marriage”, accompanied by a Bible verse (1 Corinthians 13:7 NLT), which states Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures throught every circumstance.
“This lesson is between us husband and wife, and also a lesson for the future of our marriage,” she writes in the post in Chinese. “We will continue deeper into this marriage. Besides the happiness and warmth we have for each other, it will also contain our mistakes and mutual forgiveness.”
Known as Hong Kong’s Golden Couple, Cheng, 46, and Hui, 51 have been married since 2014. On Tuesday, Hui confessed at a press conference to a dalliance with 30-year-old TVB actress and former Miss Hong Kong first runner-up Jacqueline Wong, having been caught on camera holding hands and kissing in the backseat of a taxi with Wong.

這次 ,是我們婚姻中共同重要的一課。這段期間, 我們共同經歷情緒起伏, 我們也就事件詳談很久很深 . 這是夫妻二人之間的一課, 也是往後婚姻路上學習到的一課. 我們在婚姻中走進更深處, 婚姻當中除了彼此給予的幸福溫暖, 當中也深深包含了彼此的錯誤和彼此的原諒. 人誰無過是老生常談,但事實確是如此啊。 在這次中, 重要的, 是更進一步身歷婚姻其中真諦. 幸福不只是一埸埸順利美滿,當中也有試煉, 也一起去經歷高低狀況,讓夫妻之間的感情厚度帶領著前行, 更要彼此走進對方的內心, 一起正視各自的軟弱, 不放棄自己, 不放棄對方,互相糾正, 互相提點, 在婚姻歴煉中, 我深信經歷和教訓一定會幫助重回正軌, 生命更會更生. 這期間在我們彼此都最難捱的時刻, 握著手一起祈禱, 對我們的幫助極大. 今天, 肩上的重擔彷彿輕了很多. 只願一切快平息, 回歸平靜. 最後摯誠請求各大傳媒不要再等候和追訪我年紀老邁行動不便的父母. 沒有更多想表達了,今天以後,就只向前看, 在時間的見證中,繼續一步步前行. ❤️
Cheng has thus far been silent on the scandal, but her Instagram post seems to indicate that she is willing to continue on with the marriage.
“The most important thing for us now is to further explore the true meaning of marriage. Happiness is not just a series of smooth and happy moments, but also trials and challenges, as well as high points and low points that will allow the relationship between husband and wife to move forward, and reach for each others’ hearts, face up to our weaknesses,” she writes.
“In a marriage, I believe that experiences and lessons will help us to get back on track, and life will begin anew. During this period, at our most difficult moment together, we held hands and prayed together, and it helped us a lot. Today, the burden on our shoulders seem a lot lighter. I just wish for everything to calm down and be peaceful once more.”
In the post, she also implored the press to stop harassing her parents, and that this was all she had to say about the issue.
“After today, I will only be looking forward, and in time, keep moving forward step by step,” she writes.
