Being a heavenly king like Jacky, Andy also does not want to lose out to Jacky as he also added in some musical element into his concert tour, he says: "Musical had always been my dream, as the muscial market is not doing well, thus people keep telling me not to try." With regards to mask changing, Andy said: "I've promise my shifu that I would not perform unless with his approval. However, I would be performing magic which will be performed between dances." When talked about his mask changing skills, a delighted Andy exclaimed that he's able to change 6 masks.
