Videos – Faye & LYP in Lhasa Nov 28

In the the first video, we see Faye Wong (王菲) and Li Yapeng (李亚鹏) visiting with the family of a toddler who has benefited from the SmileAngel fund. In the second, we see them at a hospital visiting with the SmileAngel medical team, hospital staff, young patients and their families. In both of these, we see the kindness and generosity of Faye and LYP. It’s very touching to see the genuine love and care that they have for the children and their parents. I think a very big part of why Faye and her husband are so immensely popular in China (and the rest of the world) is because of their humanity. This is just another extraordinary aspect of Faye that makes her so different from other celebrities and so worthy of respect and adulation.

More on Li Yapeng’s July 23 Incident

After the incident at Bangkok International Airport on 23 July 2008, Li Ya Peng (李亚鹏) was  accompanied by Katie Chen (陈家瑛, Chen Jiaying) to the airport security office where the police took a statement. The male reporter who had been assaulted was also present. During the process, both parties argued. According to reports, Li Yapeng said, “That day, I talked to you patiently after you photographed my family at the hotel. But why did I hit you today? Because my daughter had been frightened by you. Your camera was right in her face. You scared her.” The male reporter countered, “You could have told me that you were unhappy with me, but you were wrong to assault me.”

The reporter also asked that Li Yapeng apologize in public and pay for the video camera that he had damaged when he attacked the female reporter. LYP replied, “That’s pretty funny. You harass me and ask me to apologize? It’s you who should say sorry.” The police announced that the incident and statements have been recorded for future reference. LYP asked for a copy of the video taken by the CCTV camera crew.

In an interview after the police interrogation, Li Yapeng said, politely, “Please wait for a moment. Let my mother and children leave before I say anything.” After they left, he explained that he behaved the way he did to protect his daughter. He asked the journalists, “Did you see how that reporter used his camera to take photographs of Li Yan [李嫣]? Did you see? His camera was in my daughter’s face!” Sighing, he continued, “It’s okay to photograph me, but not my daughter. I wouldn’t hit him only today if he did that again. I would hit him every time he does it. I will do anything to protect my daughters!”

Later, on the 24th, journalists approached Faye Wong (王菲), who was beside LYP. When a reporter shoved a mike into her face, Faye pushed it away with her hand. She said, in Cantonese, “I didn’t say I would accept your interview.” Faye was apparently angry about the incident the day before. The photo below was taken at a Bangkok hotel where the family was staying, some time after the incident.

Another Photo of Li Yan

Here’s another photo  of Li Yan (李嫣) from Asian Entertainment Universe (23 July 2008). Her parents, Faye Wong (王菲) and Li Yapeng (李亚鹏), and sister Tong Tong (竇靖童 Dou Jingtong), as well as others in the entourage, including Katie Chen (陈家瑛, Chen Jiaying), entered the airport in Bangkok in separate groups to distract the media’s attention away from Li Yan. The strategy worked, allowing Yan to avoid detection for the most part. The exceptions are a few shots such as this. Yan’s is the eyes of innocence, and just seeing her vulnerability goes a long way toward explaining and empathizing with Li Yapeng’s violent actions. As a father, his natural instinct was to shield and protect her from the kind of media attention that could be traumatic.

Conflict Resolved – Faye & Family Back in Beijing

Based on various reports, the conflict between Li Yapeng (李亚鹏) and the Hong Kong reporters involved in the incident at Bangkok International Airport on the 23rd has been resolved. Faye Wong (王菲), Li Yapeng, and the rest of the family returned to Beijing in the afternoon of the 24th. In Bangkok, as the videos show, LYP was interviewed by airport security. The reporters, too, were interviewed. One report claims that the journalists apologized. Another that both sides apologized. And still another that no one apologized but both sides acknowledged wrongdoing. In one report, LYP says that he didn’t apologize, but that “If he encounters a similar problem in the future, he would choose a more suitable way to resolve it.” In any event, the criminal case appears to be closed.
