DaDa Chan Jing's sudden online retirement announcement has three rumored versions in show business.
Version 1: DaDa was upset about being set up, being accused of arrogance at the LAN KWAI FONG 3 (HEI OI YEH PO 3) production start ceremony when she only grabbed her friend Celia Kwok and declined to be interviewed with her junior colleague Mika Siu. After the incident saw press, DaDa was angry that the company did not protect her image and only used her. Thus two days ago around noon she revealed that she was disillusioned online and cried over the matter. After discussing with her family she decided to retire.
Version 3: DaDa has always been popular. The more famous she became, the higher social status her suitors had. In recent years she has been linked to an Indonesian restaurant heir, then caught on a date with Taiwan rich kid star Wang Chia Liang. Celia Sie Lim Chi also was rumored to have introduced the Kowloon Bus heir to her. She however has denied all the rumors. DaDa complained that the media gave her too many rumors so she was unable to find the real deal. Recently DaDa was rumored to have found a Mainland rich kid true love. He did not want her to withstand too much pressure and suggested for her to retire and take care of her compensation issues for her.
Version 3: DaDa worked on the supernatural film TALES FROM THE DARK (MAI LEI YEH). Because she was too in character and did not know how to leave the character, she often suspected that she was being haunted and even said to workers that she ran into ghosts. Under paranoia her mood was affected.
Having worked with DaDa on two films, Susan Shaw Yam Yam said that when DaDa made TALES FROM THE DARK she was often ill and even mentioned to everyone that she ran into ghosts. Shaw Yam Yam felt that DaDa gave herself too much pressure and did not know how to release it. If she was determined to retire it would be good. She would not try to change her mind and would only silently wish her well. "If she wants to change business and someone is willing to give her a chance, she should give it a try. In particular her Mama is very worried about her daughter's health. I have been an exotica star before, when I wanted to change jobs no one dared to hire m. If now the society is able to accept her then it would be the best."
