It has been months since fans got a glimpse of Jacky Cheung who has kept a low profile in this age of pandemic but his “haggard” appearance in a recent video shocked his fans in a report from 8days.sg published on January 14. .
It resulted in less-than-kind comments about his grey beard, “glazed eyes”, “gaunt” cheeks, and how much he’s aged!
Fans compared Cheung to fellow Heavenly King, Andy Lau, who is also 59. They said that Cheung now looks 10 years older.
Nevertheless, there were fans who defended Cheung, saying that ageing is “normal” and “part and parcel of life”.
“It is impossible for people to have an ageless appearance,” commented one fan.
The 59-year-old Heavenly King, Cheung is not just a nice guy, but he is generous as well.
Cheung has donated to charitable causes, lent his voice to charity concerts, and has also released a song to pay tribute to frontline workers since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lately, the singer appeared in a video to cheer on the residents of Hebei’s capital, Shijiazhuang which is undergoing lockdown after reports of new infections.
The video featured other famous faces as well such as Eric Tsang and it generated buzz on the Internet but not for the reasons you would think.
