Why Aaron Kwok 'owes' everyone in Hong Kong a red packet after getting married

'Heavenly King' Aaron Kwok's 'promise' to give ang baos to everyone in Hong Kong is probably haunting him now.

According to Sin Chew Daily via The Star, he once said in front of rolling cameras that everyone in the country would receive "red envelopes" from him after he got married.

However, he reportedly made that statement during a movie promotion in 1994.

Kwok, 52, and Chinese actress-model Moka Fang, 30, wedded last April. The couple welcome a baby daughter later in September.

Netizens said that the superstar should deliver on his promise, but some commented that he probably has forgotten about it, or that “he probably did not expect Hong Kong’s population to swell to over seven million today”.
