Lucky Fans Got to Shake Faye Wong’s Hand

On 18 May 2008, after performing in the Beijing CCTV earthquake relief show, which ran a marathon four hours, from 8PM to midnight, Faye left the building and headed for the family van, which was parked outside. Faye’s part of the show was the highlight and didn’t go on until 11:30PM. Thus, she had had a very long day and must have been tired. She sang “Wishing We Last Forever” (但愿人长久) with Eason Chan (Chen Yi Xun, 陈奕迅), Faith Yang (Yang Nai Wen, 杨乃文), and Aniu (阿牛). When she entered the car, the driver told her about a large group of fans who had waited nearly five hours to get a glimpse of her. They were holding banners identifying them as Faye’s fans, and when they saw her, they shouted her name to get her attention. Faye asked the driver to pull up close to the group and to lower the window. She wanted to acknowledge them, in appreciation for their vigil. The fans went wild and immediately surrounded the car, competing with one another to shake Faye’s hand through the open window. (See the photos below.) When a male fan shouted, “Ah Faye, you must return!”, Faye nodded without hesitation, saying “Good! Good!” Shortly thereafter, Faye and the fans said their goodbyes and the van drove off.

Comment: I’m not sure how much credence we can give to this report, but if it’s true, then we could conclude that a comeback is not out of the question. I guess it’s all in the way we interpret Faye’s “Good! Good!” reply to the fan’s question. Does it simply mean “I’m glad you want me to return”? Or does it mean more?
