Crazy Andy Lau Fan
Now, I'm all for meet and greets with celebrities. My friends know that I would desperately love to meet Gackt-sama and (figuratively) drool all over him. What I won't do is obsess over him and cause anyone distress over it/him. That's what this crazy girl from China did. Yang Lijuang of Lanzhou city obsessed over Andy Lau so much that her parents got involved and tried to help 'make her dream come true.' The dad sold his house, used all his savings and tried to sell a kidney to get her there. (He only tried because it's illegal.) Once they made it to Hong Kong, the Andy Lau fan club helped her out and brought her to a birthday party for Lau and she got to take pictures with him. Apparently this was not enough for Lijuang because she was disappointed and later her father committed suicide because of this. Lijuang's father wrote Andy Lau a 12 page letter. TWELVE. Blaming Lau for his death, and saying he owed his daughter at least a conversation for her fifteen year devotion of the star. Andy Lau came out as saying that the photographs and short hello was enough and that he didn't owe her anything else. Now, what person in their right mind thinks that Andy Lau owes her anything? I think that the woman needs to grow up and get a life. I might have pictures of Gackt-sama all over my desk and a giant poster-sized calendar hanging in my house, but that doesn't mean I think he has to come and serve me tea or anything. Good grief.
Thanks Karazen for the interesting story.
