The reporter managed to interview Andy through his management company, he expressed that he's very depressed that Kwan had passed away, he said: "Then I could not act too well, Kwan is my senior, he personally taught me many things. He's my 'shifu' during and after shooting, I won't forget his theories of 'know how to be a person before knowing how to act', 'hardwork earned 3 points' and many others."

Andy recalled that for the movie Lee Rock, only Kwan won an award as recognition, he says: "Then I was delighted for him, never expected that it would be also his last movie."
