Dai Si Chung To Drop Legal Allegations Against Kevin Cheng

As Kevin Cheng Ka Wing has been preparing to face the legal battle ahead of him with former music instructor, Dai Si Chung, yesterday there were rumors that a General Assembly will be launched by a group of Kevin supporters to advocate for him.

But afterwards, Dai Si Chung, voluntarily contacted the press and said that he will be issuing a statement that he will not pursue legal allegations against Kevin.

Since Kevin's contract incident had been exposed, he has received the majority of public support, helping turn the situation around in Kevin's favor.

Kevin's supporters were about to launch a General Assembly to advocate for him, but Kevin disagreed with this approach. "I did not want to make this into a bigger issue. But I believe in the laws of Hong Kong and that the best solution to the problem is through legal methods."

Some refer to the teacher and pupil relationship between
Dai Si Chung and Kevin breaking down due to an incident at Kenix Kwok Ho Ying and Frankie Lam Man Lung's wedding. Allegedly, Kevin did not greet the Dai's at the wedding. But Kevin said, "I did greet them then. Mrs. Dai even pulled us to shake hands. But I didn't know what to say, as we haven't been in touch for such a long time. But I do meet San Wai for dinner sometimes."

As Dai San Wai had publicly revealed Kevin's telephone conversation taping, Kevin only said that the position of each person is different. "I was very surprised when the conversation was reveal publicly. But I wasn't overly upset. After all [San Wai is Dai's daughter]."

Will Kevin be on friendly terms with Dai Si Chung in the future? Kevin responded reservedly, "That's to be considered later."

Just as Kevin's radio interview above was broadcast last midnight, Dai Si Chung voluntarily contacted the press. Dai said that he is currently drafting a public statement, in the form of a newspaper ad, that he will be dropping legal allegations against Kevin.

The following is a transcript of the conversation that Dai had with The Sun's reporter:

Dai: I wanted to speak my heartfelt words. Thanks to everyone who has been concerned about the contract issue with Kevin Cheng. I would like to resolve this matter by issuing a public statement to drop legal allegations.

Reporter: Why are you insisting on publishing a public statement?

Dai: I don't want people to think that I am creating news, so I wanted to clarify by issuing a public statement.

Reporter: Have you spoken with Kevin?

Dai: No I haven't. This time it is not a lawsuit.

Reporter: Allegedly, Kevin's supporters were going to organize a General Assembly to denounce you?

Dai: I don't know. I don't think that's true.

However, The Sun reporter still has not received Dai's public statement yet. Dai said that he is still working on the proper wording, so he needs more time. Also Dai's daughter, Wan Wai, has turned low profile as well.

Kevin said that he has not received the notice of Dai's public statement, so he said it is inconvenient for him to comment. But the twist in events and the Dai's changing their positions made the situation more interesting.
