At the start of the programme, Andy made everybody laugh when he introduce himself: “Hello everybody, I’m the person who does not eat, sleep and could live to 52 years old just by breathing, Andy Lau who was immortalize by the media!” One audience asked: “You’re so perfect, does you have any demerits? Similar to normal people like us who would make mistakes due to carelessness?” Andy replied: “I can also be careless, I forgot to tell everybody after I got married.” From his love relationship with Carol Chu till they got married and borne a daughter, out of protecting his family, he always avoided such questions from the reporters, but when recording VOICE, he made an exception by talking about his wife and daughter as he openly revealed details of him taking care of his daughter.

Facing close to 300 youngsters, Andy exclaimed that he had never been so nervous before as before he started to talk, he had preventive inoculation for them: “Today I’m sharing not god Andy Lau, but a human, a real person who would also be nervous if I don’t speak well, if I don’t speak well, please give me some applause and love.”
