Liu also brought along his family at the house of Ruan. They also helped take care of the old Chinese man and they also became close to him. They celebrated occasions together. He cooked boiled egg and prepared milk for him every day.

In March 2023, the old man received compensation from the demolition of her 800-square-meter home in the village where he was residing. Based on an article on SCMP, he received five (5) properties in Beijing as compensation. After seven (7) years, he died.
