Is Raymond Lam Retiring?

By on December 31st, 2012 | Chinese Entertainment, Hong Kong Entertainment

Yesterday Raymond Lam, girl group Girls Kingdom and Super Girls attended a New Year Eve countdown event. It was rumored Raymond is planning to retire from the industry? Raymond frankly expressed he did mention in an exclusive interview that one day he will have to go back to help his father with the family business because he’s the eldest son in the family and have to take up this responsibility. However, he said: “I still have a lot of jobs on hand, so this won’t happen in the near future.”

He believes the media is trying to tie the two matters together because he lost the TV King award, he said: “Of course it would be great to get the award, but I won’t feel discouraged because of that. (It was rumored you wanted to take JSG’s male singer award?) The reports are quite original, I have never really had aspirations for awards.” Earlier he was spotted at a nightclub and had a girl with her hair dyed blond approach him? He expressed that night he was just having a meeting about his concert with his colleagues and music team. As for the blond-hair girl? Raymond said: “Perhaps she’s a friend of a friend, I don’t know her at all. I didn’t even greet her. Often writing stories like this, makes me unhappy because it makes everyone worry about me.”

Also, it was said Raymond turned down new costume series Food for Slave? Raymond clarified: “TVB hasn’t completely confirmed the series yet, nor have they made arrangements for me to be part of it. I haven’t received any notice yet, but won’t know until the final moment. (Unwilling to shave your head?) I have do to promotions and must have an explanation for the clients.” When asked if he’s worried TVB might switch over and start promoting Kenneth Ma more? He said: “TVB promotes everyone, there are so many series in a year, there is no reason to use the same few people for every series.”

Moses Chan attended another event and when asked about Raymond’s rumored retirement? He laughed: “Huh! Retiring? He said it before, but then what about his fans? (Take on his fans?) I cannot handle it. (Rumored he turned down a series?) Actually he is very active in this industry, hope he doesn’t have the intention to retire so quickly. He still has many opportunities, must cherish them. (Because he lost TV King?) Actually, its not that big of a deal. Didn’t get it this year, then try again next year, got to be more open.” Nancy Sit told Raymond not to retire, she praised he’s handsome, can sing and dance. He’ll get TV King later too.
