HONG KONG — For TVB actor Mat Yeung, handshakes and photo-taking with fans at his soup restaurant in Wan Chai are common.
But not until recently had Yeung felt enormous popularity probably unseen in his 20 years of performing career. In just a few minutes, about 10 diners came up, gave him thumbs up and took selfies with him even after lunchtime.
"I did not anticipate that and it has never happened before," Yeung said.
It was not some new TV series or box news that have put him under the spotlight, but his voice of support for the true defender of peace and safety in Hong Kong amid seven months of turmoil -- Hong Kong police officers.
Even at the most volatile time, Yeung made no secret of his attitude. He frequently posted group photos with police officers and openly expressed gratitude to their hard work on social media platforms.
Along with several other celebrities, Yeung visited police headquarters and cheered police officers on in December.personalized leukemia braceletsrubber band bracelets for boysjesus silicone wristbandsbatman wristbands onlineusb bracelet custom
