Triumph in the Skies Film Stars Francis, Chilam and Louis Koo; Francis Hoped Fala Chen Joins the Cast 

Yesterday Media Asia Group's chairman Peter Lam led a group of artists and directors to participate in the HK FILMART 2014. Artists including Francis Ng, Chilam Cheung, Louis Koo, Nick Cheung, Jacky Cheung, Leon Lai, Ekin Cheng, Miriam Yeung, Ivana Wong, Chrissie Chau, Janice Man and many others held a press conference to promote the new 2014 films. The big productions included Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2Break Up 100 TimesHeliosThe Source of Love and Triumph in the Skies film edition. 

The TITS film will star Francis Ng, Chilam Cheung and Louis Koo. Francis hoped the original cast could participate in the film including Fala Chen. However, the film is a joint production by Media Asia and Shaw Studios, and since Fala is no longer a TVB artist, she may not be in the film? Francis said: "When the series began filming, Fala didn't sign the contract with TVB, but they still promoted her to be the first leading actress." Francis was unsure whether the film edition will have the three lead actors fight for one girl. The film is scheduled to start shooting in June. 

Asked if they'll compete for more screen time? He joked: "You all don't have to follow us when we go out on our trips because I'll come back with news to report." Earlier Francis loses the TV King title to Dayo Wong, does Francis hope to get the Film King title instead? Francis said a bit upset: "Don't bring out the topic that TVB dislikes so and so again. They didn't want to bring it up, so why bring up unhappy events? (TVB didn't want to bring it up?) We don't want to bring it up, is that ok? (Are you unhappy?) Doesn't matter to us." 

Ekin Cheng and Chrissie Chau star in Break Up 100 Times, they had an affectionate water scene, but they expressed there was no awkwardness. Actually the cartoon underwear that the staff prepared for her ruined the romantic atmosphere, but it was also pretty funny. Ekin expressed he did not tell his wife Yoyo Mung about the scene prior to filming because Yoyo is also an actress, so she understands its only work. Chrissie felt its normal to have kiss and intimate scenes because in the film she and Ekin had been dating for 8 years.

Niki Chow and Richie Ren attended the press conference of new drama The Virtuous Queen of Han. Niki's boyfriend Jeremy Jones is also part of the cast, but he was absent from the event, asked if she was okay with that? She said: "The company makes the arrangements. I knew today I'm here with Richie to promote the theme song, Raymond Lam is part of the cast too and he didn't attend." Niki disclosed she has three husbands in the series, but Jeremy isn't any of the three. Reporters teased as long as she has him in real life, then that's enough. Niki laughed: "Haha, not related!" As Niki's boss, Richie Ren joked he didn't know Niki and Jeremy were dating, but he'll make adjustments to the arrangements and coordinate appropriately in private.

Nancy Wu is Straight and a Lesbian, Gets Intimate with Bosco, then Kisses Kate Tsui

Yesterday day one of the HK FILMART 2014 was held at the HK Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai. TVB sent out 41 of their leading Siu Sang and FaDans including Wayne Lai, Raymond Lam, Ron Ng, Ruco Chan, Kenneth Ma, Roger Kwok, Charmaine Sheh, Kate Tsui, Selena Li, Tavia Yeung, Joey Meng, Priscilla Wong, Aimee Chan, Nancy Wu, Sharon Chan and many more to participate in the "TVB Programmes Parade 2014" press conference. Bosco Wong, who has been surrounded by rumors lately, did not attend because he was ill. The second group and batch of series will be featured in day two of the festival.

TVB advertised several of their upcoming series including Inbound Troubles IIGhost Dragon of Cold MountainMadam Cutie On DutyUnder the VeilSwipe Tap LoveLine Walkerand The Ultimate Addiction as well as the currently airing Ruse of Engagement and Storm in a Cocoon. Wayne Lai had the most series, he was in 5 of them. Probably the most shocking and eye catching was The Ultimate Addiction's trailer, Kate Tsui appeared topless in front of Nancy, and then the two had an intense kiss scene. Even Nancy said on Weibo: "My heart jumped out when I saw this." Nancy also had a lot of hot and sexy scenes with Bosco, she appears in a black bra and sits on Bosco's thighs.

Wayne expressed he has already completed two series, and still have three more in the line up. In June, he'll be collaborating with Anthony Wong in a new pre-modern drama about Kung Fu. He joked he's getting confused too. Shooting one series after another, does he have any time to go to Mainland to earn some extra income? Wayne expressed he's concentrating more on shooting HK dramas, and does not plan to deliberately develop in the Mainland market. He laughed: "I'm more than willing to attend to the HK audience. The current HK atmosphere is not good, I believe I ought to entertain everyone to boost the atmosphere."

The calamitous series Line Walker lead actress Charmaine Sheh expressed its not calamitous, rather it is many challenges. She expressed: "I heard the crew is going to hold another blessing ceremony." She also said Sammy Sum's accident didn't slow down the filming progress, they can just redo the scenes when he recovers. Asked whether she's worried she'll get injured too? Charmaine laughed: "My action scenes are usually with Raymond Lam, the hero who saves the beauty. Also, one of my top 10 weapons is the folding stool, I usually use that to beat people." Raymond jokingly asked if he'll be the next one to be injured. Charmaine disclosed Line Walker filming ends late April, and she hoped it will be released soon. She said after this series, she will be shooting another TVB series, but first she must go on vacation with her friends to recharge. "We can go where ever, the most important is to take a break. I plan to go with my good friends, but the majority of them are all mothers now, so its quite difficult to schedule a good time."

Aimee Chan's birthday is on April Fool's Day, the Westernized Aimee laughed and said friends pulled pranks on her birthday, but as long as its not too over, she doesn't mind. How does she plan to celebrate her birthday this year? Aimee expressed nothing big, she'll probably just have dinner with her family.

Linda has some lucks now and nothing will happen." Ruco mentioned probability of plane accidents was very little and said "Everyone seems to have some fears of taking aeroplane after Malaysia Airlines incident. I am also slightly afraid but less worried after praying."

When asked about the rumours between himself and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Ruco smilingly said "It is also good, as better than having rumours with Linda always.' Although Ruco denied the romance with Natalie, but he praised her as a nice girl. Ruco said again "Her acting is good, she is obedient and people are helpful to her. (Any chances to develop?) Nobody will know in the future. Who knows we may act together again and given a chance to develop then. (Go on a date with Natalie alone before?) Nope, we do not have any romance scenes in the new series, All that Bitter is Sweet and hope we can act together again."

Maggie Cheung Enjoys Life After Leaving TVB,

Maggie Cheung Enjoys Life After Leaving TVB 

Maggie Cheung had once posted a photo showing off V-line abs, and stirred up speculation on whether the person in the photo with those V-line abs was her? Unfortunately, the answer was just as disappointing as Myolie Wu's "I found him!" Maggie laughed: "I wish! I hope one day I can lift up my shirt and show off a little." We believe Maggie doesn't just have a nice body figure to show off, but she can also show off her acting skills. After leaving TVB, Maggie has gained more than she lost. She now has the freedom to work for HKTV, iCable, nowTV or some Mainland company. She could even find her true self. 

Since leaving TVB, Maggie had more time to do the work she wants to do and live the life that she wants to live. She said: "In the past, I was really scared when I saw the outskirts because going that far, I'm almost certain its a costume drama and its most likely a location you can't even find a restroom. It is terrifying, but now I've learned to design my own life. I can plan how I want to live." She also praised HKTV for being able to comply with the terms made in the contract. She said: "In TVB, Hoi Mei (Kathy Chow) had a set amount of hours to rest, but in the end TVB wasn't able to keep the promise. Mr. Wong at HKTV's contract had 10 hours set for resting time, earlier when I was filming Hakka Woman, he was able to fulfill that promise. In April, I will be filming another modern series with HKTV. I'm not worried the series won't have any place to broadcast because the internet is the future broadcasting platform." 

In the past, Maggie just knew how to be materialistic to please herself, but now she says: "I was young before, I saw myself working so hard, so I would go shopping to make myself feel better. One time, I swiped my credit card so much I went over the limit. I didn't realize until much later that my life before was just so dry and dull." Currently still single, Maggie never liked people asking so many questions, but after getting bombarded by questions, Maggie finally admitted she had a pursuer, but was unwilling to disclose the details of that person. She said: "If I really do find my Mr. Right, I will consider letting you all know. There is no reason to hide it. (Can you accept sister-brother love?) In this time period, it really doesn't matter. Is it definite that if a man is older than a woman, then they'll be happy? Or if the woman is older than the man, then they won't be a happy couple? Actually, the most important between two people in a relationship is feeling. But, is marriage definitely going to be better than being single?"

Ben Wong Fears Kiss Scenes the Most; Joey Meng Doesn't Mind Filling the Third Shoe 

Ben Wong has kiss scenes with both Joey Meng and Nancy Wu in TVB series Gilded Chopsticks, but Ben didn't seem to enjoy it. He said: "I've been acting for so long and I fear kiss and bed scenes the most. I just feel its so awkward. In the series, I have kiss scenes with Joey and Nancy. When we were filming, the kiss scenes came one after the other, it just felt so awkward. Luckily, we are all professionals and the filming went smoothly." 

In the series, Ben and Joey's relationship was love at first sight. The simple and innocent feeling made Ben think back to his first love. He laughed: "In the past year, I haven't done much romantic scenes, this time my relationship with Joey is very simple and innocent. When we started filming, it triggered memories of my first love and the feeling of dating." Ben disclosed a small blooper during filming, he said: "There was one kiss scene, we were kissing so much my mustache fell off and I didn't even notice. We continued filming other scenes and didn't notice until the next day. I really felt sorry that we had to spend another 3-4 hours redoing some scenes. It was very fortunate we didn't have to redo the kiss scene." 

As for Joey, she has a relationship with Ben and Louis Cheung in the series. Joey praised Ben as a considerate person, while Louis is humorous. Gilded Chopsticks went through many changes in cast, it was said Joey 'filled the third shoe' as her role was first given to Fala Chen in the Sales Presentation, then Linda Chung was considered before the role landed in her hands. However, Joey did not mind what the public says: "There are always changes in this industry. Different people, different outcomes and sparks. Since I'm portraying this role, I am only concerned on how I could do my best! I don't care about all the rumors." In Gilded Chopsticks, Joey collaborates with her costars from Inbound Troubles Wong Cho Lam, Louis and Bob Lam. She said: "Of course I hope the ratings will be as good as last time, but I won't give myself pressure. Actually the crew isn't entirely the same, it is my first time collaborating with Ben. He looks pretty strict and serious, but in fact he's a lot of fun and attentive. In Hengdian, he went out to buy me so much food to eat, how could I eat all of it myself?" 

Joey disclosed she had a lot of action scenes in the series, so she had to put herself on a diet and practice her martial arts. She said: "Luckily I participated in gymnastic and trampoline courses in High School, so I quickly got a hang of it. However, it still took a toll in me physically. One scene, Louis and I had to show off our Kung Fu in front of the children, but I made so many mistakes, the children were laughing at me and I almost hit someone in the face. (No fear of being disfigured?) You have to trust your partner, if not then you're in more trouble."

Kevin was awarded the 'Top 10 Best Selling Mandarin Albums' for his latest Mandarin album Its A Long Story (說來話長). It was reported due to schedule conflicts, Kevin was forced to turn down two Mainland dramas, so he could film TVB new series Sky Eyes in May and lost an estimated of HK$25 million. Kevin expressed: "The reporters are just concerned about the money, but actually I had a leg injury earlier and had to take time off." In the new TVB series, Kevin will be portraying a police officer, so its going to be difficult for him to avoid action scenes. Kevin said: "I don't want my right-knee injury to get even worse, so when I start filming that series, I hope to ask the producer if we could push back the action scenes until the very end." Kevin will be working with Ruco Chan and Tavia Yeung on this new series. 

Gillian Chung was also one of the winners of the 'Top 10 Best Selling Mandarin Albums' for her latest album "桐花". In regards to good friend Charlene Choi and Kenny Kwan watching the Northern Lights together, Ah Gil said: "I really wanted to go see it too, but I had to work. I already had a month off for New Years." It was rumored Ah Gil spent nearly a ten million on a new home. She expressed: "I'm not sure about my mother, I wasn't in HK. (You didn't have to sign the paperwork?) I don't handle that stuff. I did sign something, but I don't really handle it." 

Alan Tam was awarded, 'IFPI's Hong Kong Mainstream Cultural Singer Award'. He said: "It's my contributions from the past, nothing competitive." Asked if he had comforted Felix Wong (he's been having issues with his father), he said: "I've played ball with him lately, he's doing fine. I don't want to ask too much about his family matters, just asked his wife how he's doing. His wife said he's fine." Pop queen Joey Yung's hoarse voice seems to be getting worse. Alan said: "She's like a cocoon, too much damage, she really needs to rest."

When speaking of good friend Toby Leung's divorce, she expressed she was Toby's bridesmaid at her wedding a few years ago and felt unhappy when she heard the news. "They are both my good friends. A husband and wife getting along is truly a knowledge of its own. Perhaps its easier for problems to arise when they got married at a young age. Since they made the decision, I will support them. I've already been through the difficult times with Toby." Although her good friend got a divorce, Charmaine's confidence in marriage was not affected. "Must learn to get along well with your other half before you even think about marriage. I hope after this experience, they've learned to make choices."

'Brother Keeper' Concert in Malaysia: Ruco Chan Helpless Personal Life Gets Disturbed

Yesterday Kristal Tin, Ruco Chan and Edwin Siu held their Brother's Keeper Genting Concert in Malaysia. Louise Lee served as the special guest, and got the audience very high. Ruco Chan rose to popularity after TVB series The Other Truth, which was his first series as the leading role. Since then, his love life became the media's target. Even his on-screen mother Louise Lee praised he's a 'seun poon' and when she asked him what he's looking for in a partner, he appeared to have not wanted to talk about it. However, his 'mother' kept interrogating him until he answered. Ruco said: "I like active ones... you all (the audience) don't think you can wrong me! My partner should be able to respect my job, can have dinner at home, and watch TVB together. Haha!"

Eventually Ruco had other choice but to say that his personal life had always been the focus, especially his love life. "Every time, I responded to a rumor several times and they (the media) still enjoy writing more and more stories, its so annoying!" Then Ruco comforted himself: "This proves I'm news worthy." After the brief chat, Ruco continued his performance with his latest TV series theme song 'Just Missed A Step' (差半步) from Outbound Love. He concluded with: "Saya Cinta pada mu (I love you), don't forget my sweet talker role!" He expressed he hoped Outbound Love could get a sequel.

Before Louise performed her first song, she warned the audience: "I'm not good at singing, I hope you all will forgive me. I'm just here to stall, so my sons will have enough time to change!" Louise chose to perform two songs, both by Teresa Tang. She said: "Teresa Tang's songs are forever classics. If she's still alive, I definitely wouldn't dare to sing her songs! I really like her, so I will sing these two songs in her memory." Louise expressed there was a fan who mistaken her for another singer Fong Yee Kei, but she said: "No hard feelings because she's younger than me and sings better than me! Haha."

Steven Ma Spots a Mistake in 'Storm in a Cocoon' 

Yesterday Steven Ma and Joyce Tang attended the "Keep Fit Party 2014" event hosted by the Occupational Safety and Health Council. Steven disclosed he will be going back to TVB for some dubbing work for his current series Storm in a Cocoon because the voices/sounds in some parts of the series filmed in Mainland didn't come out so well. He said: "If not, then the audience will probably find some kind of mistake again. Actually earlier I found a mistake in the series myself, in one scene I had an injury on my right-hand, but in the next scene my injury disappeared. Although there are staff who take notes of every scene, but I think artists should help out as well. It requires a lot of effort on them." When speaking of the TV ratings, Steven believed there will be a steady increase. 

Joyce was asked about her plans to have children. She expressed to let nature take its course: "If there is a baby coming in the end of the year, its quite troublesome to enroll in the schools. (Try to avoid getting pregnant?) My husband isn't in Hong Kong at this time, I don't have to do any protection."

Linda Chung Transforms into Singer-Songwriter Composes Theme Song of Her New Series

Linda Chung Transforms into Singer-Songwriter Composes Theme Song of Her New Series

Many TVB television artists tried to break into the music industry, but several of them couldn't get away from the fate of being an "one album singer". Linda Chung is committed to break this fate. Aside from her desire of holding her own concert, her ultimate goal is to become a singer-songwriter. LindaBB said: "I don't want people to think I'm just playing around." Linda liked music since childhood, she enjoys humming music in the shower the most. She said: "I remember I already started composing music when I was around 9. At the time, my parents heard me hum a melody and asked me what song I was humming? I answered them: 'I composed it!'" Based on this, Linda ran for Miss Chinese International in 2004 and entered the entertainment circle. Linda still had a bitter love for singing and music, but she never thought she'll have the opportunity to launch her own albums. "I didn't think I'll have the chance, so I just concentrated on filming series. I slowly fell in love with acting. Actually a TV series and its theme song are closely related. With a theme song that sounds good, it really helps the series. Every time I shoot a series, I have a theme song in my heart. I would think about this song while I make an outline of how I'm going to portray the role."

Back then Linda got an "admissions ticket" to enter the music industry, at first LindaBB didn't have much confidence: "Everyone had different views. Some people thought a TV actress goes into singing? Is she just playing around? But I want to prove to everyone that I am very serious. When I first stood on stage to sing, I was very nervous and did a lot of homework myself to overcome the nervousness. When you accumulate more and more experience, then you will enjoy the stage that belongs to you and your singing will be even better!"

Lately, LindaBB has started engaging more into composing music. Not only will she be composing the theme song to her new series All That Is Bitter Is Sweet (aka. The Great Pharmacist), she will also be composing a song for Hubert Wu. Linda felt satisfied: "Usually I'm very passive at work, but this time because I wanted to compose my own song, I took initiative to ask my record company if I could give it a try. I gave 10 song demos to my Boss to listen, and to my surprise one of them was chosen. This gave me more confidence."

LindaBB expressed music composition can inspire imaginations, not only will she think about the singer's voice, but she also has an idea of how the MV should be like. Asked what her trick was to composing music? She said: "Composing music is a training of your concentration. When you have the inspiration, then you have to sit yourself down and keep composing it until the 3 minute song is done. If you stop to chat with a friend or eat something, all that on and off moments, then you'll lose the inspiration."

Yesterday Ruco Chan, Lin Xiawei (Rosina Lam) and Louis Cheung were recording for JSG. Ruco expressed he wants to concentrate on filming series and does not have plans to launch his own album. When speaking of Myolie Wu's prank yesterday, Ruco described it as "explosive". He said: "The whole incident was so explosive, everyone has a different way of playing. I rarely play like that. Perhaps I'm rather old school, I just hope the media reports focuses on my work. Everything has changed now, people are announcing everything. If I do get in a relationship, I will announce too." 

Louis was asked about his upcoming TVB new series Inbound Troubles II, does he have a romantic storyline? He disclosed he doesn't mind pairing up with another man. "My role is quite psychotic. I'm not sure who I'm paired up with yet. (If you're paired with a man, will you be ok?) That's heavy flavor, but I don't mind. Every time I film a series, I don't get a good ending. I hope to have someone by my character's side during the finale. (Tell your wife Kay Tse to guest star?) No, there isn't any room for imagination."
