To many diehard fans’ screaming surprise, “Forever Goddess” Joey Wong (王祖賢) will finally return to showbiz in May.
The 46-year-old actress, who left the entertainment industry 11 years ago, has received an invitation from a Hong Kong jewelry company and a cosmetics brand to attend their events, each offering an appearance fee of HK$1 million ($128,900).
If market reaction is favorable, she might take a step further to start shooting films again.
Since she left the silver screen, she has lived in Canada and largely disappeared from view, even to her friends.
Joey’s 16-year-long relationship with singer Chyi Chin (齊秦) from 1985 to 2002 remains one of the most talked about romances in showbiz.
