Kenneth Ma Swears He Won't Have the Stunned Expression Again at TVB Awards

Yesterday Kenneth Ma, Tavia Yeung, Him Law, Mandy Wong and the rest of The Hippocratic Crush II cast took part in the bus touring promotional event in Tsim Sha Tsui. This is the first TVB event since the company implemented a complete 'shut out' on [Next Media] and to ensure there were no [Next Media] reporters around, TVB politely asked all reporters to show identification. 

Earlier at the TVB Anniversary Gala show, Kenneth Ma had a stunned expression when he was named "TV King in the Artists' Hearts". Netizens screen captured his expression and compared him to a Koala with a leaf hanging from its mouth. Kenneth said: "They're just joking, but I really didn't know what to say when I got the award. It was unexpected. I swear my stunned expression won't appear again at the actual TVB Anniversary Awards show. (Prepare an acceptance speech?) Not necessary, just speak the truth." As for the complaints that Kenneth doesn't have enough screen time in On Call 2? Kenneth said: "There will be more scenes later, I hope everyone keeps on liking Yat Kin Tau and Yue Jai." 

Tavia Yeung was absent from the TVB Anniversary Gala, she explained it was because she had the flu. When she learned Kristal Tin and Linda Chung were the top two favorites for TV Queen, she felt happy for them. Tavia said: "I support Linda, and Kristal indeed had a great performance, so it's normal that they were the top two. Its a healthy competition. I am not too anxious about it." As for the [Next Media] shut out, Tavia expressed she respects her company decision, but she will continuing working as usual and maintain a good relationship with the media. 

It's Normal to Have Desire for Marriage 

The night before, Tavia and Him attended Meini Cheung's wedding and were 'put on the table'. Tavia ended up getting the bride's flower bouquet and Him was dragged on stage to take pictures with them. Tavia said: "Every girl is desperate to get married when they reach a certain age and hopes to catch the flower bouquet, but just don't have the courage to admit it. It's normal. What's most important is finding the right person and time. (Consensus with Him?) I have consensus with my mother. Marriage is not just unilateral, when my mom says its ok for me to marry, then I will marry." 

As for Him getting 'put on the table' at the wedding, Him expressed he's helpless: "Just to entertain the guest, it was fun. (Tavia made it clear she wanted to get the flower bouquet!) It's just part of the ceremony, just passing on the happiness. (She's desperate for marriage?) She said anyone isn't married wants to be. (Pressured you to propose to her?) Wah, no my pressure just comes from work! You all are taking it too far." When asked if he's going down the 'mother-in-law policy'? He said embarrassed: "You mean the future? A man and woman getting married, it's normal to meet the parents."

Tavia Yeung Praises Him Law's Acting, Hopes He Gets An Award

Yesterday Tavia Yeung was on Nancy Sit's radio interview to promote for her series The Hippocratic Crush II. Nancy brought in a school girl fan to meet her idol Tavia and take pictures. The fan gave Tavia a DIY Christmas card, but the fan started tearing up emotionally, which frightened Tavia so much she said: "Don't cry! I'm getting teary too." Then Tavia gave the fan a hug to comfort her.

Tavia expressed On Call 2's finale is the night before the TVB Anniversary Awards, she hopes to ride on the momentum, so her good friend/partner Kenneth Ma gets the TV King title. As for TV Queen, Tavia supports Kristal Tin and Linda Chung. She won't give herself any pressure. What about boyfriend Him Law? Tavia said: "I'm not sure what he'll be nominated for, but he really developed 'Onion' really well. I hope he'll get to be in the competition too. I'll definitely support him. (Is Him the best boyfriend?) Don't use that type of wording. In my heart, he's a very attentive gentleman and really has a sense of responsibility. (Is he a marriageable partner?) I really haven't thought about it, I said he's okay, but will have to get to know him for a longer period first."

Nancy disclosed there are many producers in Singapore and Malaysia inviting Tavia to collaborate with them for a high pay. Tavia frankly expressed she feels very honored and if there is a chance, she hopes to collaborate with Nancy, even if its low pay, she won't mind. Also, Tavia revealed she may be starting a new series in December and will be spending Christmas at work.

Kenneth Ma Acts Sentimental, Fan Girls Starts Blushing 

TVB Siu Sang Kenneth Ma attended a Christmas event at the mall and attracted nearly one hundred fans to the event. Kenneth performed two songs and played games with several female fans. Dubbed the 'male god', Kenneth got the female fans so happy as he fed them and took pictures with them. When Kenneth fed the blindfolded fan girl, she blushed and appeared really nervous, while the other fans below the stage screamed loudly in jealousy. Later, two other fan girls helped Kenneth wrap up his arm and knee. The enthusiastic fan wrote "I Love You" on the bandage and gave it a kiss! The other fan girl knelt down to help Kenneth bandage up his knee. Kenneth and some other fans formed a heart with their arms and other "HK Girl 10 Styles". Very cute scene! 

Kenneth expressed he has many jobs over the Christmas holidays. When asked if wanted someone to accompany him during the holidays? He said: "I'm old! I've past that age of wanting to be in a relationship. After all, I live in the present. Whether I have a lover or not, I'll be just as happy. (Did any fan girl confess their love to you?) Nope! They're just coming out to support me, they are very implicit. (Do you mind dating a fan?) I never thought about it!"

'Boundy Lady' Premiere 29PTS(Peaked 31PTS), Dayo Wong: Maybe My Last TVB Series

'Boundy Lady' Premiere 29PTS(Peaked 31PTS), Dayo Wong: Maybe My Last TVB Series

Dayo Wong's new TVB series Bounty Lady premiered on Monday and had been well received. The premiere rating averaged 29 points and peaked at 31 points. There has also been heated discussions on the series online. The audience waited a bitter four years for Dayo's comeback, but that doesn't compare to the audience waiting ten years for 'Sam Gor' (Francis Ng) comeback, thus Triumph in the Skies II is still leading with the highest premiere rating of 32 points, peaking at 35 points. 

Aside from Dayo catching the attention in the premiere episode, 'Sai Sai Lap' (Siu Bo) also stole the limelight with her village girl role. Yesterday TVB received feedback from two people, one complimented the series had alarming dialogue and Siu Bo's acting is outstanding, but the other criticized the quality of the series is just average. The Communications Authority received 1 complaint on one of the artists' poor acting skills. 

Netizens enjoyed some of Dayo's 'golden lines' in the series, such as his comment to Siu Bo's character, "It takes me a few minutes to look from the left side to the right side of your face" and his compliment that Siu Bo is "very sweet", she's only fat because she "sweeten herself too much". 

In an interview, Dayo expressed Bounty Lady maybe his last TVB series. "After I finished this series, I gone crazy! I don't know either, perhaps this may be my last TVB series because I don't want to film comedy series anymore, I want to film a drama or a political series. Just like the movie called The Island of Greed, but if there isn't an election by 2017, then its going to be difficult to film a series of this genre. So, I really don't know when I'll be in another series." It was rumored he'll be co-hosting TV show with Dodo Cheng? Dayo expressed he turned it down because he enjoys short films more. "I also hope to collaborate with Dodo and I do have interest in hosting, but it didn't fit in my schedule so I had to turn it down. I have something I'm busy with. (What are you busy with?) I've picked up a new hobby of shooting mini films! (Mini films? You mean short films?) Yes! But I like to call them mini films, its a lot of fun! (Last time you invited Sean Lau and Wayne Lai to guest star, who will you invite this time?) Wah! I cannot incur so many friendship debts!"

Dayo Wong Risks His Life Riding with Kate Tsui to Boost TV Ratings 

Yesterday Dayo Wong, Kate Tsui, Sharon Chan, Jazz Lam, Toby Leung, Siu Bo and the rest of TVB new series Bounty Lady attended the promotional event. Dayo performed the theme song during the promotion and joked: "Everyone knows you must pay to listen to me sing! Everybody $100, but its me who pays you!" When Dayo carried Kate, it appeared there was some exposure, which frightened Kate so much she quickly covered herself. When speaking of tomorrow's series premiere? Dayo expressed he feels excited: "So that's why I came dressed in a Sashimi chef's uniform in hope to bring the series fresh out of the oven to everyone! If there are good ratings, I will wear this uniform for a whole month. (Weren't you going to kneel all the way home?) I'll wear this uniform and kneel inside Kate Tsui's mini van, so she can take me home. She's a pretty dangerous driver!" Kate expressed he's "killing her". She said: "He has to risk his life to ride with me." 

Earlier Kate expressed if the ratings reaches 40 points, then Dayo Wong will kneel home. Asked whether Dayo has confidence the ratings will actually hit 40 points? He asked reporters what the usual ratings are on average nowadays? When he learned the average ratings are in the 20s-30 points, he joked: "I don't have much confidence, but definitely have confidence to maintain the current ratings. (TVB is depending on you to rescue their ratings, the audience also have confidence in you!) Right, you mean rely on pushing the ball to me. Actually I don't have much to depend on. Its safer to depend on Kate Tsui!" However, Dayo expressed the premiere episode definitely won't be disappointing. As for Kate, she expressed she will regard the ratings positively. "Up until now, the feedback we got from the promotional clips have been pretty good. I hope Dayo can really kneel home!" 

There were body pillows with the cast photos printed on them at the event. Kate was asked whether she fears fans may have other fantasies on her body pillow? She said: "Its frightening. I'm really scared there might be an emerge of some 1:1 (prostitute) products. I can't imagine it!" Dayo wanted to take Kate's body pillow home, "I want to put it on my balcony, so when the magazine reporters come to take pictures, I'll lift it up! (Creates rumors to promote the series?) Nope, I pursued Kate for two months and failed. I don't dare to think about it anymore."

Wayne Lai & Louisa So a Couple in New Series, Zero Intimate Scenes 

Yesterday Wayne Lai, Louisa So and Ronald Law attended TVB new series Men Getting Married's blessing ceremony. In the series, Wayne and Louisa have a relationship, but have no intimate scenes, just one hand holding scene. When speaking of the sudden rise of TV ratings during the finale of Will Power, Wayne expressed: "The average rating of 33 points considered a pay off, most important is the audience feedback." Wayne expressed his son is already 16 years old and has passed the dangerous period. Because his son likes to be at home, there are no worries he might get kidnapped. Asked whether he's worried his son might get kidnapped by a girlfriend? Wayne laughed: "I can accept that. We've all been young before, at this age, I cannot oppose too much. I don't mind my son giving my son a lecture on sex, but he hadn't asked about it." 

Louisa expressed she already got the script for 20 episodes of the series, but the work hours are still the same, very long. She said: "I start working at 06 to 28. Spent a day filming outdoor scenes, and then studio filming in the evening." She said there are good artists in this series, very good acting skills and really has the drama feeling. The audience should enjoy it. 

Earlier Ronald Law was involved in an illegal parking case, but the court ruled him not guilty. He said: "This is my first time going to court for a dispute. The judge said my honesty was reliable. (Celebrate with girlfriend?) No need, its no big deal."

TVB 46th Anniversary: Kenneth Ma & Kristal Tin TV King & Queen Voted by 400 Artists 

Last night, the annual TVB Anniversary Gala 2013 was held at Tseung Kwan O TVB City About 400 artists attended to celebrate TVB's 46th birthday. There were several performances throughout the night including singing, dancing and magic tricks. This year, TVB also had the artist vote for "TV King & Queen in the Eyes of the Artists" and "Most Powerful Artist". 

Since some of the top five TV King and Queen candidates were absent, such as Chilam Cheung, Francis Ng and Tavia Yeung, the top two most voted for TV King ended up being Kenneth Ma and Wayne Lai, and TV Queen was between Linda Chung and Kristal Tin. Ultimately depending on The Hippocratic Crush II and Brother's Keeper Kenneth Ma and Kristal Tin were the Best Actor (TV King) and Actress (TV Queen) in the artists' eyes! Law Lan was named "Most Powerful Artist". 

Kristal In Tears, Kenneth Stunned 

When Eric Tsang first announced who won "TV Queen in the Eyes of the Artists", he read Linda Chung's name and Kristal immediately went to congraluate her. However, it turned out it was just Eric's naughty joke and quickly expressed Kristal is the actual winner. Kristal immediately started tearing up and eventually she was crying so much she couldn't speak. Does this give Kristal more confidence to get the actual TV Queen title next month? She said: "I've been nominated before in the past, but nobody ever asked me this question. I believe this time I had this opportunity, my husband Chapman To congratulated and declared his love in front of a crowd. The most touching was when all the other artists stood up to applaud and being so supportive." 

On the TV King side, Kenneth went up against Wayne Lai and when it was announced Kenneth won, he had the same stunned expression he had at last year's anniversary awards show. He had that shocked I-Can't-Believe It expression for about 5 seconds before Dodo Cheng went over to give him a pat, and he finally came back to reality. When asked about his stunned expression, Kenneth had no idea: "It came out again?" Kristal asked: "Did you vote for me? I voted for you!" Kenneth just stared at her and didn't respond. Kristal said: "Stunned again! Did you vote for Tavia Yeung?!" Kristal teased Kenneth had the naturally stunned expression. 

Kenneth expressed perhaps he started his career from the TVB Artistes Training class, so he got a vote of pity from his fellow colleagues. Asked if he had more confidence now to get the actual TV King title? He said: "After all, the vision of artists and the audience are different, but I'm extremely grateful to have my colleagues' support." 

Fred Cheng, Alfred Hui and Linda Chung led the Star Dream singers out with a chain of songs and then the TVB first line Siu Sang and FaDans were counted in. Kevin Cheng, Kate Tsui, Myolie Wu and Raymond Lam stood in the middle and Priscilla Wong was promoted to stand in the first row. Former couples Bosco Wong, Myolie Wu and Kevin Cheng, Niki Chow had no interaction at all. 

Kate Tsui and Chin Ka Lok performed a challenging and enticing dance while suspended in the air. Kate did the splits while being suspended, but she had trouble turning in circles and then shook her head. Chin Ka Lok had the other dancers help him. Initially Raymond Lam was suppose to do the challenging performance with Kate, but because he had appendicitis, he was forced to give up the challenging dance, Chin Ka Lok replaced him. However, he still did a dance performance with the group of Miss HK and MCI. Rebecca Zhu stole the limelight with her low-cut dress. Eliza Sam and Toby Chan's dancing was stiff. 

Moses Chan, Myolie Wu and Ruco Chan performed had a magic trick performance with magician Louis Fan. Myolie was broken up into parts, the audience were shocked to see the lower half of Myolie's body at the end of the table, while her upper half was at the other hand of the table. It was quite terrifying. Ruco performed a trick where he saws Louis Fan into two parts and then puts him back together. Moses had the most 'rigged' performance, he said he had a gift for TVB in his stomach, then Avon Lee came crawling out of Moses' stomach and Liza joked: "Moses, its a boy!" 

Charmaine Sheh Absent Due to Numbness in Hand 

Earlier Charmaine Sheh publicly urged audience not to turn off the TV because she'll be attending the TVB Anniversary Gala. However, last night Charmaine was no where to be seen. Her manager expressed since November 15th, Charmaine's had numbness in her right hand. She got an MRI done and discovered she had an intervertebral disk shift, thus putting pressure on her nerves and caused the numbness. She will have to go through physical therapy.

Linda Chung: Don't Scold TVB for Everything 

Yesterday Linda Chung, Ruco Chan, Natalie Tong, Samantha Ko and Raymond Wong attended the blessing ceremony for TVB new series The Great Pharmacist. In regards to losing the "TV Queen in Artists' Heart" title at the TVB Anniversary to Kristal Tin. Linda expressed she's happy for her and was already pleased to be part of the top two. It was reported she extended her TVB contract for another 8 years since she had no hope for the TV Queen this year? Linda explained: "I didn't sign another contract. In the past 4 years, it had been reported that I extended my contract for another 8 years. So, does that mean my contract now is 32 years long? There is less than 5 years left in my TVB contract, but that is enough time for me to improve and get the TV Queen title." Lately, Linda's fans had been scolding her TV Queen opponent Tavia Yeung on Weibo? Linda expressed: "I don't believe that. My fans are all very well behaved. If they really did do that, I will talk to them." 

Linda and rumored boyfriend Ruco Chan play a couple once again in this new series. She expressed because of Brother's Keeper, she's more familiar with Ruco now and they work very well together. Ruco was also very willing to be Linda's driver. He joked: "I'm just afraid she dares not to ride with me." Linda joked back: "I don't have the courage to, I have doubts on his driving skills." 

When speaking of the TVB Anniversary ratings, averaging at 29 points and peaked at 31 points, Linda was most pleased with TVB's HK$3.1 million donations to charity. Asked whether Linda thought Nat Chan's comments affected the ratings? She said: "I hope everyone doesn't keep scolding TVB for everything. I don't think Nat Chan caused an impact on the ratings. The noise can actually pull up the ratings. With current advanced technologies, many people are watching on MyTV." Ruco expressed he's not satisfied with the rating: "I'm not satisfied with how much TVB donated, they should donate more!" The TVB anniversary rating for this year set a new record for lowest rating. Samantha expressed her support: "Its already good. We really put in a lot of effort into the performances. Actually Nat's comments helped TVB." Natalie Tong said: "The noise from the public probably affected the rating, but I hope everyone could be more rational. Don't put all your dissatisfaction on us. We tried our best to entertain everyone."

Kristal Tin Wins the Artists' Hearts, Linda Chung Admits Defeat 

ATV turned TVB actress Kristal Tin's acting had finally been recognized. In her latest series Brother's Keeper, her role as "Cheung Kai Ying" had been well acclaimed by the audience. Earlier, the audience voted Kristal as their "Most Liked Character" from the series, and last night at the TVB 46th Anniversary Gala, Kristal was again voted by her fellow colleagues to be the "TV Queen in the Artists' Heart". When Kristal's name was called, she burst in tears and the most touching moment was when the artists stood up to applaud for her. Asked if Kristal has more confidence in getting the actual TV Queen title next month? Kristal expressed had been nominated in the past years, but never has anyone asked her if she had confidence. This time, she got quite a bit of noise and believes her chances are higher. 

Kristal's husband Chapman To is currently busy shooting new film Naked Ambition 2 and didn't find out about his wife's victory until a friend told him. He sent his wife a message declaring his love: "Beautiful, I love you! You are the best!" Chapman expressed in an interview yesterday that he felt very happy for her: "This title was voted by the artists, then that means they know about acting. She got recognition within the industry!" Chapman frankly expressed this year he had neglected his wife: "I was shooting too many films this year, we didn't see each other much. Now that I know she got the award, I won't be able to pick her up from work even if I wanted to. I hope to take some time off after I finish shooting this film to go on vacation, spend some time alone with her!" 

The other TV Queen hot favorite, Linda Chung, competed for "TV Queen" with Kristal. Yesterday she attended the blessing ceremony of her new series The Great Pharmacist and expressed she was not disappointed at all to lose to Kristal. Linda said: "This year at the TVB anniversary, I really felt the unity. I'm already happy to be part of the top two candidates. I've been in the industry for nine years and have learned a lot. If I don't get an award, then I will have to add oil!" It was said Linda signed another eight year long contract with TVB, but still had no hope for the award? Linda denied she signed an extended contract: "I didn't extend my contract, but I did get a raise. After all, the TV Queen title is my goal and its a perfect time." 

Also, Niki Chow attended a friend's wedding banquet and expressed she felt happy for Kristal. Niki said: "I'm really happy for her because I personally really like her too. I just remembered she bought me food before and I still haven't paid her back. (Are you worried about losing the TV Queen award this year?) I'll be just as happy whoever wins. No matter who wins, it is an honor."

Nearly 200 Artists' Attend TVB Programme Presentation 2014 

Last night Charmaine Sheh, Kevin Cheng, Niki Chow, Myolie Wu, Bosco Wong, Tavia Yeung, Kenneth Ma, Kate Tsui, Raymond Lam, Linda Chung, Wayne Lai and nearly 200 artists attended the TVB Programme Presentation 2014 show. There were several rumored couples gathered together in one place including the former 'love triangle' Kevin, Charmaine and Niki and ex-couple Bosco and Myolie. Niki's boyfriend Jeremy Jones 'met' Kevin for the first time. Although Kevin and Charmaine were a pair on the red carpet, during the group picture they had zero interaction. Instead, Kevin chatted with Linda Chung more, while Charmaine chatted with Moses. As for Niki, she stood far from Kevin and Charmaine, and instead linked arms with Myolie's ex Bosco. 

Later, Niki disclosed Kevin did greet her. Asked if they'll feel awkward portraying a couple again in the future? She said: "Its just work, can't choose the people. I don't mind working with him, but I need to know what the couple has to do." Asked what if Charmaine Sheh is added into the series? Niki paused for a moment and said: "That interesting?" Charmaine expressed during the rehearsal, she did chat with Kevin and does not understand why there would be awkwardness. When speaking of Niki being at the show too? Charmaine said: "Yeah, there's a lot of people. (Did you chat with Niki?) I've chatted with many colleagues, we're all friends. I don't even remember who I chatted with." Kevin said there is no awkwardness at these events: "When you're at that age, you have some history, its not a big deal." Linda and Charmaine were dressed the most conservative. Myolie had a large "knife cut" across her chest, quite enticing. 

Next year TVB will be producing 16 series and 14 variety shows. Wayne Lai and Ron Ng had the most series, each had 3 series; Ruco Chan, Edwin Siu and Raymond Wong each had 2 series; Tavia Yeung, Myolie Wu, Kate Tsui and Linda Chung each had 2 series; Kristal Tin, Eliza Sam and Samantha Ko are the heavily promoted artists and each got 2 series. Kenneth Ma had no series. TVB Programme Presentation 2014 will be broadcast on November 30th.
