Although regarded as one of today’s most popular singers, Eason Chan (陳奕迅) sets high standards for himself, and openly discussed his success and his personal life when he was young.
Having risen to the top in the last two decades, Eason is often regarded as one of the new gods in this generation of Cantopop. He has won numerous awards for his music, including the Best Male Singer, and Album of the Year for several years.
However, Eason’s standards remain very high and intact.
After losing out on the Most Favorite Male Singer award in 2005, he suffered a big blow to his self-esteem.
During that time, he did not dare compare himself to superstars such as Leslie Cheung (張國榮), and Anita Mui (梅艷芳) because he believed he was not up to par with them.
He soon picked himself back up after the words of his father, whom he greatly respects.
At a concert performance in 2013, Eason announced that he had bipolar disorder. Eason explained that his stubborn demeanor has actually changed throughout the years.
When he was young, he was very aggressive and daring.
He recalled a time when he went to the kitchen and threatened his mother that he would cut himself if she continued to hit him.
It was only afterwards that his elder brother realized Eason was smart enough to trick their mother because he only threatened to hurt himself with the handle of the knife instead of the blade.
Eason revealed that his 10-year-old daughter takes after his personality.
He revealed that Hilary Tsui (徐濠縈) has been a very supportive wife and gives a lot of freedom in their marriage.
