A day after Andy Hui held a press conference to apologise to wife Sammi Cheng for cheating on her with TVB actress Jacqueline Wong, Ming Pao Daily News reported that she had realised she made a very big mistake and was regretful of her actions, as she told TVB executive Virginia Lok.
“She is very sorry to everyone who has been implicated in the incident, especially her parents and family. She is also very sorry to the company, and to Kenneth Ma and his family.”
She also updated her Instagram with an apology letter, writing:
Sorry, I did something wrong.
It’s my mistake, I’ve committed a grave mistake that is difficult to forgive. I feel very embarrassed and guilty.
I would like to sincerely apologise to everyone who has been affected and hurt by the incident.
After committing such a grave mistake, I can’t face myself and I don’t know how to face my family, Kenneth Ma, my friends, my company and my colleagues.
I don’t dare to ask for everyone’s forgiveness. I only ask that everyone can give the people involved a bit of space.
I’m reflecting on my wrongdoing, will bear the consequences and accept my punishment.
Once again, “I’m sorry, everyone.”
The 30-year-old TVB actress and former Miss Hong Kong first runner-up was caught on camera holding hands and kissing Andy in the back seat of a taxi, in a scandal that broke on Tuesday. Hui has been married to singer-actress Sammi Cheng since 2014, while Jacqueline and Kenneth have been dating for more than two years. (Edit: An earlier version of this article stated they have been dating for close to four years.)
Kenneth is reportedly planning to break up with Jacqueline.
According to Hong Kong’s Oriental Daily News, Kenneth and Jacqueline have met each other’s parents officially and have also attended their friends’ activities as a couple.

However, sources said that Kenneth’s family and good friends have only a so-so impression of Jacqueline, with some of them even warning Kenneth to be careful of her.
The sources said the 45-year-old actor did not heed their advice as he was deeply in love with her, but he was said to have given up hope after the scandal broke and has decided to break off their relationship.

About the same time the scandal came to light, Kenneth posted photos of himself with his co-stars in the upcoming TVB serial The Exorcist’s Meter 2.0 on Weibo, with the caption “Hard at work”. There was no mention of Wong on his social media account.
Oriental Daily News also reported that TVB was disappointed with Jacqueline over the scandal. The top management of the Hong Kong broadcaster held an emergency meeting on Tuesday and made the decision to put her career on hold with immediate effect. Jacqueline is on a long-term management contract with TVB.
Jacqueline has completed filming the period drama The Maid Alliance and police drama Forensic Heroes IV, but it is not known if the screening of the two TVB serials will be put on hold after the scandal.
