Lately Mainland media reported Karena Lam is retiring from the showbiz because she has been absent from promotions of her new movie "Don Quixote." Karena's management company Filmko released a statement immediately, denying the rumored retirement. They pointed Karena is just studying abroad and that's why she missed the movie promotion. They expressed: "Those who know Karena should know that she is an artiste who loves movies but doesn't like to be in the limelight. We came to an agreement that she would still accept jobs and film movies with good scripts." Because Karena is not in HK right now, she hasn't reply to this incident yet.
Once worked with Karena in movie "Sad Movie," Eason Chan expressed he heard of the rumor, but he hopes Karena is just taking a break. He said: "I never heard her mentioning it when we worked together. She is a good artiste. (If it's true, is it unfortunately?) It's good to take a break. Yesterday was her birthday and I sent a text message to wish her happy birthday, but she hasn't replied."
