Don’t expect Tony Leung to try and do anything viral on Douyin, now that he is part of the said platform, as the actor is only on the app for his “legacy”.

The actor, who spoke to the media at the premiere of his new movie, “Hidden Blade” recently, shared that he is still not used to such a trend or publicising his private life, and that wife Carina Lau is much better at it than him.

“I just use it to share my life and work experience. It may not necessarily be useful, but I hope it can be used as a guide for the young ones who have a passion in acting, something that can be regarded as a legacy,” he said.

It is noted that the actor’s content on Douyin is more or less his interviews, stories about his past work, and promotional materials.

As of now, Tony has already gained more than 3 million followers on Douyin, which is the Chinese TikTok.

Meanwhile, when asked about his previous dinner meeting with “Squid Game” director Hwang Dong-Hyuk, Tony denied that there is a collaboration brewing between them.

“We were just having a friendly dinner,” he said.
