Idy Chan 陳玉蓮 revealed that Andy Lau 劉德華 did treat her like his girlfriend. Andy once said “The only distinct between her [Idy] and Little Dragon Girl 小龍女 is that they weren’t born in the same time, one lives in modern time, one lives in ancient time.” However, others [reporters] thought she was “arrogant” and wanted to beat her up because she didn’t how and what to respond to their questions with answers like “I don’t know” “Please don’t ask me”.

But Andy Lau saw a difference in her that he did fall for her, he said “During the shooting for ROCH, I felt that she’s really my girlfriend. I was worrying for her and missing her everyday when going home. Later, when she played Alan Tam 譚咏麟‘s girlfriend in “Casino Raiders 至尊無上” [watch related clip], I was really falling for her that I was very sad.” But Idy had no ideas that Andy adored her so much.

In the eyes of the audience often see Idy as an angel and that’s why they paid attention to her, but she’s just like any ordinary person and faced a difficult life too. During her early years, she had to rent a 60-sq-ft room, sometimes had to wear the costume wig to go home, didn’t have time to change clothes or rest, and quickly return back to film again.

Besides studying her religion, in the past year, Idy has great interest in betting horse racing. However, she doesn’t gamble based on the winning and loosing of the horses. She based her betting from researching, watching TV, reading newspapers, and studying the background of the horses.

    Yeah, I was so suprised to see Idy & Andy together again in the Casino Raider and that he did not pair with her. Sad!

    I love the way he looked at her when she walked out the car!

    Even though, it should be the act only, but he did it by the ‘real’ mean! Sweet!

    I agreed with Michelle about Andy’s love for Idy Chan during the shoot for Casino Raider movie. I would think that Idy Chan is afraid of asking Andy Lau to go out on a date with him. In addition, I have read a recent news about Andy’s Lau first former girlfriend told a report about his career status would suffer by having a girlfriend first priority. Right now, he is trying to focus on his career as an actor and an establish singer in China.
    Truly, I never liked Andy Lau as a singer before.
