Cejan – English Translation of the 5 Video Clips of Faye’s Jan. 9 Interview

cejan, on January 28, 2011, said:

Host: In the past 4 years of running Smile Angel Foundation, is there any memorable experience that touch you the most?
Faye: I wasn’t very much involved, but I have seen all this too and they are indeed touching. There was one time we went to Lhasa, Tibet to visit the patients, and there’s one young guy in his twenties, he was very emotional when he sees us. He cried and kneeled before us, and thanked us for what we did. I couldn’t stand being in a situation like this, because it was too emotional for me, especially in front of everyone. And I really couldn’t help feeling touched when seeing this.
Yapeng: That young guy had a wish, he wanted to enlist to the army. But there are certain requirement to be enlisted, so we specially arranged a recovery procedure for him, and in the end he was enlisted.
Host: Yapeng is also uptight(about the interview)?
Yapeng: Indeed I am.
Host: Why?
Yapeng: I think we have a subtle agreement, actually we never really talk about this, that we should not appear publicly together.
Host: Why is that so?
Faye: Don’t we appear publicly often?
Yapeng: Except for those charity events, we only make an appearance, no interaction.
Host: Yeah, right.
Yapeng: And whenever we are offered to shoot a commercial together, we straightly say no. We just feel like…. that’s not us.
Host: So living with the three ‘sisters’ (refer to Faye and the 2 daughters), how is your status as the only male at home? Are you in the highest position?
Yapeng: How is that possible? I think I am kind of the standard married man, I say this quite often lately, as my friends around me are about my age. I am living the standard married life, with parents and kids, life is busy indeed, just like every other family, but I am happy.
Host: You looked like you have been through a lot(of hardships).
Faye: That’s probably because of the beard.
Host: The two of you communicate a lot on twitter when you don’t see each other.
Yapeng: Sometimes we do.
Faye: Flirting and joking around. In the beginning I just want to joke around with friends on twitter, and I just let it grow to whatever it is now naturally.
Host: And now the paparazzi can take a break. Okay that’s all, thanks for your time, and thanks for doing this interview.
Host: I like to ask Faye a question. You have been through a lot in your love life, do you still believe in love?
Faye: Sure I do.
Host: Everytime you would still devote yourself in a relationship, without reservation.
Faye: Erm….. I think love exists in everyone, not just on me. You can see and feel it, it sure does exist. I just think that love doesn’t last forever.
Host: Then what does last forever?
Faye: You said just now Nicole Kidman believes that two persons to wait for a kiss..
Host: She means because of a kiss, they wait forever, that’s only a story.
Faye: That’s because they couldn’t have it, if they could it may not be forever.

  1. Thank you very much, Cejan! And thank you Away~ and Chelsea for laying the groundwork!

    I love the fact that both Faye and LYP are so open and genuine. As Wubing says in his latest comment, we learn a lot about Faye from these candid interviews — especially her thoughts on love.

    I especially like the part where she talks about avoiding situations that are too emotional for her. We gain an insight into the real Faye: she’s intensely personal and isn’t one to wear her heart on her sleeve.

    I like this quality in Faye, and it goes a long way to explain why she is so different from the vast majority of entertainers. In a business that’s noted for its excess of emotions, Faye is the epitome of restraint, dignity, and intelligence. People respect her as a person and as an artist.

  2. Thank you, cejan!! You are awesome!

    On a sidenote, I agree with feifan, I think Faye Wong is a deeply intensely emotional person and the people and her charity mean a lot to her, but she doesn’t want to be all “showy” about it, like “look at me and what I am doing” she is almost being too reticent but I think she just wants to be genuine. She even talks about stuff like that in her song “Exit”
