HK singer Hins Cheung provides psychological support to 3,000 fans, reveals pressure from parents’ matchmaking


    27th May 2024 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong singer Hins Cheung, known for his busy schedule of performances and endorsements, has shown great concern and affection for his fans. Recognizing the widespread unhappiness among Hong Kong residents in recent years, Cheung recently organized a workshop promoting positive thinking, where he took on the role of a “psychological therapist” for his fans. During the event, he shared his personal experiences and disclosed that his parents had been urging him to get married through mutual acquaintances, expressing their desire for grandchildren. The workshop was a touching and emotional gathering, with laughter and tears filling the room.

    The four-day workshop, led by Cheung, concluded yesterday. With six sessions held each day and over a hundred participants in each session, Cheung provided “psychological counselling” to approximately 3,000 people. Fans from all walks of life attended the event, including criminal investigators and wetland conservationists. Some fans even travelled from countries such as the United States, Canada, and Malaysia specifically to be in close proximity to Cheung. Prepared for such encounters, Cheung admitted feeling overwhelmed when fans shared their personal stories, remarking, “I’ve thought about it, but I can’t fully understand their experiences,” expressing sadness at the difficulties faced by fans who had lost their parents at a young age or suffered abuse.

    During the workshop, Cheung repeatedly encouraged his fans to maintain a positive mindset and avoid constantly saying “no” or refusing to communicate. He also taught them to adopt “reverse thinking,” focusing on the bigger picture of their relationships rather than fixating on small details. He emphasised that if they truly love their partners, they should prioritise their happiness. Cheung even shared his own experience of improving his parents’ relationship through communication. When a fan mentioned the immense pressure of being an only child responsible for caring for their parents, Cheung empathised, revealing that he had learned about his father’s desire to leave Hong Kong through messaging apps.

    Cheung candidly admitted that, as an only child, he faces pressure due to his parents’ differing expectations and demands. He explained, “I found a 3,000-square-foot unit in Central for my parents to live in, but my father commented on social media that Hong Kong has too many cars and steep roads. He asked for help and expressed a desire to return to Guangzhou. I did it all to ensure they have a better life and more companionship.” Cheung also recounted an incident when an aunt, who had invited him home after a trip, told him that his parents’ expectations were not high but they wanted grandchildren. Cheung spent four hours explaining his stance to the aunt and asked her to relay his message to his mother.
