Are there really so many ghosts ? If so, they are in your heart. I'm the beggar boy! I'am a human not a ghost.
We're the same person, we surely look alike!
Ling, I Haven't been myself for long time. I shouldn't call you daddy. I should call you brother, my dear little brother. I really didn't lie back then
Is it easier to accept that I'am a ghost ? You'd rather accept a ghost than a freak like me
You're not human! You're a ghost ! Whatever. Back then, I only thought of your mom. I imagined how happy and noble she was. The i stopped thinking about your mom. I thought, it's first time for you to get married. A man like you. . . must have married a beautiful wife. I imagined sleeping with your wife all the time. God knows, things you imagine. . . do become real
For Tai, he said openly at my birthday party that i've never grown taller over a year. What a nosey man ! To play safe, he must be sacrificed
YOU'RE WRONG ! I really never killed ANYONE.I just go to school, ride my bike, play my dolls. Did i kill anyone ? IT'S YOU WHO KILLED ! YOU ARE THE MURDERER ! You're always seen yourself as a hero.Always above others, a noble policeman. I helped you to find out the real of you!
On what condition, would you let my family go ? If they are stupid, i might let them go. But if they are smart, it's hard to say !
I survived all these years on my own . You think a mere floating platform will scare me ?
I never thought of asking Mang to come, Mang is "busy" now
You don't look after your wife, who can you blame ?


  • Ling Fook-Wing shares similarities with Esther Coleman/Leena Klammer from Oprhan :
    • Both were suffering from Hypopituitarism.
    • Both were adopted by the protagonist to replace their dead-child.
    • Both were evil-geniuses who tricked the Families into adopting them.
    • Both antagonized the main character (Kate Coleman and Ling) and successfully tricked their spouse (John Coleman and Hazel)
    • Both were dressed-maturely near the climax.
    • Both have fought with the main character in the end of the series, But Fook-wing wasn't killed by Ling and Esther/Leena was killed by Kate (if doesn't include the alternate ending of Orphan, where Esther/Leena doesn't have to fight with Kate and she escapes.)
  • Despite sharing many similarities with Leena Klammer, Fook-Wing never kills people and is not a serial killer, instead his henchmen named Mang do it from his order while Leena does it by her own. Leena is unstable and wild, while Fook-wing overall very calm, emotionless and never get provoked. Unlike the most sociopath, Fook-wing never drive into insanity.
