Dear friends of "Xin You Qian Qian Jie", dear friends from Taiwan, Hong Kong, United States and all over the world:
First I have to thank you all for your lasting trust and support. Then I have to say 'Sorry'. I've caused trouble for you again. This is not some hyprocritic saying but my sincere apology. Whenever things are smooth for me, you are there to cheer and feel happy for me. Whenever things are difficult, you are all courageously standing by my side to support me. I feel really ashamed and proud.
Actually, I am a very normal person, a normal person with a lot of flaws. I tagged along the coat tails of Auntie Qiong Yao and "Huan Zhu Ge Ge". I'm so dignified by having so many of you by my side, not letting me feel lonely at all. Now something has happened again, causing you all to worry for me once more, I really regret this. I have done way too little for you all. Yet you all have done so very much for me. Frankly, I have worked very hard to do a good job with "Young Bao Qing Tian", and paid dearly for it, yet today I still get such bad things said about me and the series, It hurts me very much, and it hurts the series very much, because even before it is even broadcast, it has gotten such bad publicity. And it was all because of me. That's why I feel very bad. But at this time, I am not going to explain or argue, and I cannot explain or argue, because I don't want people to make use of my words and fabricate more news stories, and hurt this series that is very important to me. No matter it's popular or not in the future, I will still be happy and satisfied about the efforts and contributions that I have made towards it.
After getting really mad, I calmed down and decided not to explain or point fingers at anybody. The only thing I have to do now is to reflect upon myself, why are there so many negative news directed at me. I must not have done too well. Justice will prevail, it's more important to improve myself. Today's self-revelation will lead to more improvement in the future, I will not try to seek retribution from those who hurt me. Rumour stops with the wise. My silence does not mean consent. I am definitely not the kind of person that they say I am. You are my friends, you all understand me the best. Just like Auntie Qiong Yao had said to me, "Let things go and you will feel easy". I still say, there are a lot of dramas, a long road for me to work hard to achieve. I will definitely learn from this experience, and work hard to improve myself. Please don't worry. The unhappiness from last year has passed like smoke. Let us face life with a smile, don't worry about other's pointing fingers at us, just let ourselves do our best, do you agree?
I already promised the real producer of "Young Bao Qing Tian", Mr. Pan Hong Qing of Beijing Television Station, that I will not make any explanation to the press regarding this matter. Time will prove everything, please keep an eye out for the broadcast of the "Young Bao Qing Tian" series. Finally, I thank you again for all that you've done for me. Thanks for your trust, understanding and support! I am so dignified and proud to have such bosom buddies as you all!
Love you all, respectfully yours,
Zhou Jie April 27, 2000
