It was raining heavily that day during the JJ Lin concert in Hong Kong. Yong Hwa thought it would be cancelled and he might need to go back. But he was really lost as he really want to perform and it has been sometime since he visited Hong Kong.
But when the show began, it stopped raining. So he hope that when its was his turn, please give him lots of support and hope so he can perform there as well.
Question : “Can’t drink coffee for 1 week vs Can’t eat Beijing duck for 1 year”
