Congratulations Yeung Chiu Hoi!

Yeung Chiu Hoi recently got married to his longtime girlfriend who he started dating when he was 17/18. When I first saw some of the pictures, I thought that he was just filming for a series because there were also a lot of TVB stars and I thought that he was too young. However, he's actually 29 years old! Congratulations to the newlyweds!


Here are some more engagement and wedding pictures. Can you spot all the stars that took part and went to his wedding?

Filming News

I just wanted to put some random filming news all into one post.

Alex Fong Lik-Sun will be filming a TVB series in 2014. His last series he filmed with them was in 2004 called My Family (with Chung King Fai, Ha Yu, Rebecca Chan, Hawick Lau, Shirley Yeung, and Sam Chan). 

Nancy Wu will participate in Commercial Wars with Wayne Lai. She was not part of the sales presentation. The current Miss Hong Kong crop of Grace Chan and Sisley Choi will also take part in filming. 

TVB invited some stars from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan to film a short series that will air from Chinese New year to Valentine's Day. Charmaine Sheh and Raymond Lam will film in Singapore for an "Urban" series. Linda Chung and Yeon Jung Hoon will film a "Happy" story in Korea. Kate Tsui, James Wen, and Chris Wang will film a "Sad" series. Wong Cho Lam, Aaron Yan, and Naomi Watanabe will film a "Cartoon" series in Japan. (This makes me think of Seasons of Love but with a bigger budget and more stars.)

Kenneth Ma and Tavia Yeung will be filming an ancient comedy series with Lee Tim Sing. Benjamin Yuen and Joel Chan will join the cast.

Bosco Wong and Eliza Sam will take part in the remake of Double Fantasies. The original starred Louise Lee who suggested Eliza for the role because of her cute look, so I now know who to blame.... :P
eta: Wayne Lai and Sonjia Kwok will also be part of the remake. 

Tracy Chu will be filming Battle of Tomorrow with Lawrence Ng and Kate Tsui. She said that she has the most scenes with Kenny Wong. This series, along with the Lee Tim Sing series and Double Fantasies, should begin filming in January.

Midas Touch (Bosco Wong, Nancy Wu, Kate Tsui) will finish wrapping up soon. The producer has said that there is a lot of current concepts in this series so it will be released as soon as possible so that it won't seem out of date if it is aired too late. I'm thinking it will air after the Chinese New Year in February or March. Return of the Silver Tongue and Coffee Cat Mama will be airing next. After that, Outbound Love and Meet the Daughter-in-Laws (a 15 episode series filmed specifically for the CNY time slot) will air. 

2013 TVB Big Bowl Feast Pictures (Day 2)

Fred Cheng and Hubert Wu at the Tung Wah Charity Show

Fred Cheng and Hubert Wu performed together with a violinist for the Tung Wah Charity Show. This is an annual telethon held by TVB to raise money for Hong Kong's Tung Wah group of hospitals. They raised $92,688,888 HKD which is  $2.3 million HKD more than last year's records. Congratulations!

 

I thought that they both sounded amazing. I love this performance.

Vinegar Lady Blessing Ceremony

Vinegar Lady (starring Myolie Wu, Ron Ng, Him Law, Eliza Sam, Gigi Wong, Alice Chan, Koni Lui, Derek Kwok, etc.) had its blessing ceremony on Friday, December 6th. This will be a 20 episode ancient comedy revolving around jealousy. Vinegar in chinese also means jealous.

Myolie Wu and Niki Chow at 7-Eleven Hello Kitty event

Myolie Wu and Niki Chow attended an event for 7-Eleven/Hello Kitty. They recently sat next to each other at the TVB Anniversary show and they seemed to have bonded at that show. Although both have filmed for TVB for a while, they have never worked on the same series before. For the past few years, they have worked with each other's exes with Myolie partnering with Kevin and Niki partnering with Bosco, so they probably never really talked to each other that much. However, during the show, you can see them constantly chatting. Then they followed each other on weibo and they have both been complimenting each other. Hopefully, they can both work on a series together one day.

They both look really pretty here!

46th TVB Anniversary Gala Fashion and Pictures

Happy 46th birthday! 

The 46th TVB Anniversary Gala averaged 29 points with a peak of 31 points, so as promised, they will be donating HK $31 million to the various charities they support. I thought it was a very entertaining show for the most part, especially the Inbound Troubles skit, the magic segment, and the Raymond/Kate dancing segment.

Check out below for my opinion on the various fashions that can be seen, and feel free to leave your thoughts as well! There are a lot of pictures, even though I couldn't find a picture of every person there.

Fred Cheng joins Voice Entertainment record label

Fred Cheng officially joins TVB's Voice Entertainment (the Chinese name sounds better because it directly translates to "stars dream") record label along with fellow Voice contestants Hoffman Cheng, Yao Bin, Ronald Law, and Grace Wong.


Here are some tidbits from the press conference:
  • Fred's album will be released in May or June of next year. He hopes that one of the songs will be his own creation.
  • Fred's first single will be written by Eric Kwok! He was one of the judges on The Voice of Stars and was nicknamed Ironman due to his resemblance to Ironman played by Robert Downey Jr.
  • Jade Solid Gold (JSG), TVB's music countdown with performances, will go through some changes. The most notable was that JSG was usually only open to singers with TVB-contracts, but now it will be open to everyone.  
So happy for Fred! I will definitely be buying his album when it comes out. I hope there will be a duet with Alfred on his album since I loved their performance together during the competition. I'm actually somewhat surprised that so many of them got signed, but I guess I shouldn't be since they've been attending a lot of functions and doing a lot of performances together. I can definitely see Grace being pushed to do a lot of dance music since she's a great dancer.

Return of the Silver Tongue Official Poster


The themesong will be a duet with Kristal Tin and Fred Cheng. I noticed that Fred is now near the front of the poster due to his new popularity, but there was barely any news about him or his role while the series was airing. haha
This poster is so crowded! I wonder if this breaks any type of TVB record for most people on an official poster...

Housewife Madam (師奶Madam) Costume Fitting

This will be the fourth costume fitting this month and the third this week! Maybe they're trying to squeeze in as many series as possible before the new rule of needing a mostly completed script before the start of filming. haha.

The latest costume fitting is for Housewife Madam produced by Lee Yim Fong. This will star Edwin Siu, Priscilla Wong, Mandy Wong, Raymond Cho, etc.



This is probably my least anticipated series of all the recent costume fittings. I like Raymond Cho and Mandy Wong but the cast and story in general seems so drab. I'm not a fan of Priscilla Wong's acting, but this producer seems to really like using her, and her wig is really ugly.

Ox Head Loves Horse Mouth 牛頭愛搭馬嘴 Costume Fitting

Ox Head Loves Horse Mouth 牛頭愛搭馬嘴 had its costume fitting today which included: Johnson Li (who replaced Bobby Au Yeung as the male lead), Joey Meng, Oscar Leung, Rebecca Zhu, Fred Cheng, William Chak, etc.

  • Joey and Johnson will play a pair. Joey will be a cop who is the head of her department and Johnson will play her subordinate.
  • Oscar will be surrounded by females chasing after him including Shrimp Head who doesn't want to let him go, Sisley Choi, and Rebecca Zhu. Rebecca will be someone who can really fight.
  • Fred's character thinks highly of himself and that he is very good-looking, but is only a photographer. He will pair up with Sisley. 
I wish it was still Bobby in this series since I was looking forward to him and Joey to pair up. I'm always happy to see more Oscar and Fred though!

Vinegar Lady 醋娘子 Costume Fitting


Vinegar Lady 醋娘子 had its costume fitting today which will star: Myolie Wu, Ron Ng, Him Law, Eliza Sam, Gigi Wong, Alice Chan, Koo Ming Wah, Derek Kwok, Koni Lui, Jade Leung, Lily Leung, Nathan Ngai and many others. Louis Cheung is also part of the cast but was not present at the costume fitting.
Producer: Poon Ka Tak
Screenwriter: Ka Wei Nam (who has actually been updating daily tidbits through his weibo)

I really hope Myolie and Ron sing the theme song for this because I loved when they did the theme song for Lost in the Chamber of Love.

Myolie Wu's Birthday Party

Myolie's birthday was on November 6 and she had a birthday party with her friends to celebrate. I follow some of the TVB stars on Instagram and that's where I found these pictures. I'm always nosy about which stars are friends with others outside of the work place, so I was definitely looking around for TVB stars I recognize.
People I can spot: Oscar Leung and his girlfriend Tina on top, Kelly Fu-Linda Chung-Grace Wong to Myolie's left, Adrian Chau-Cheu Hoi Yeung-Christine Kuo to her right, and Summer Joe on the bottom.

I'm thinking some of these people arrived later since they weren't in the group picture: Johnson Li, Oscar Leung and his girlfriend Tina, Sharon Chan, Mandy Wong

They were also asked about Sire Ma's recent scandal about dating another woman and Myolie said that Sire is a good girl and that she sent a SMS message telling her that she will support her, to be strong, and don't be too unhappy.

2014 Sales Presentation Fashions

It's that time of the year again where most of the TVB stars gather in their favorite prom outfits! Yup, it's the Sales Presentation for the 2014 series and programs. The presentation hasn't aired yet, but I'll give you my opinions on their outfits. Feel free to comment as well!

There's no official group picture that I can find but I'll list out who I can make out in the picture. It does give you a slight idea of their position but anyone standing in the walkway area is in very good standing. I think that Kristal Tin has successfully moved up into one of top leading fadan positions considering where she is in the picture, as well as her being the lead female in some upcoming series. 

Liza's side: Wayne Lai, Myolie Wu, Roger Kwok, Tavia Yeung, Kenneth Ma, Kristal Tin, Ruco Chan, Sharon Chan, Edwin Siu, Priscilla Wong, Ben Wong, Elena Kong, Natalie Tong, Kenny Wong, Lin Xia Wei Raymond Wong, Queenie Chu, Chris Lai, Oscar Leung
Carol Cheng's side: Moses Chan, Charmaine Sheh, Kevin Cheng, Linda Chung, Raymond Lam, Kate Tsui, Bosco Wong, Niki Chow, Ron Ng, Mandy Wong, Eliza Sam, Johnson Li, Rebecca Zhu, Vincent Wong
The cast of Voice of the Stars seem to be in the front of the back group.

The Voice of Stars- Hoffman Cheng and Yao Bin Interview

I was listening to a radio interview that Dodo Cheng did with Hoffman Cheng and Yao Bin from The Voice of Stars and I just learned an interesting tidbit. Dodo revealed that she took a peak at the results before the finale and Fred was way ahead in first place, but second place was actually Corinna Chamberlain. After Hoffman's performance on finale night (since votes still counted during the show), he overtook Corinna in votes! I didn't think the finale night votes would matter, but Corinna probably had her worst performance that night, while Hoffman did better and he had a lot of support from his fellow colleagues.

2014 TVB Calendar

Wow, this year's calendar came out a lot better than I expected. I was a little scared when I first heard of the sports theme, but the overall outcome is pretty cool. Everything looks really thought out and I really like a lot of the colors and costumes in these pictures. There are little things I could nitpick on, but overall, I say great job!

Each picture has the number representing what month the picture is for. Can you spot it in all the pictures?

January: Priscilla Wong, Mandy Wong, Sire Ma, Christine Kuo, Natalie Wong, Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, Linda Chung
Nice backdrop, although it's a little weird that Linda seems so much bigger than everyone. haha. I don't know why, but at first glance, I thought that was Tavia!

Bounty Hunter Official Poster



I really like this poster! I'm just surprised it's airing so fast since it feels like they just finished filming it. It's most likely that they want to add Kate to the mix for TV Queen.

Grace Wong- If I Believe

Grace Wong has her own song courtesy of a collaboration between TVB and EEG Music company. It's called If I Believe and is part of the gospel cd: Love 4 Real. I actually glanced at the cover on YesAsia a few days ago and thought that the girl on the left looked like Grace Wong, but for some reason I didn't actually believe it was her! This doesn't mean that she is signed to EEG, but if there is a good reception, I can imagine them or another record company wanting to sign her. She was one of the many stars of Voice of Stars (along with Fred Cheng, Ronald Law, and Corinna Chamberlain) who saw a jump in popularity due to participating in the series. Check out the Mandarin song below:


Congratulations Fred Cheng!

First, I want to say congratulations to Fred Cheng on winning The Voice of Stars! It was a very well deserved win and he had many fantastic vocals and performances on the show. I've been a fan of his since I saw him on Shine on You and Love Bond and I knew that he was a good singer and guitar player since I saw a few youtube videos of him performing at a wedding. Though I knew he was talented, I didn't really expect him to blow up because he would get really small roles in series- not really even big enough to be considered a supporting actor. He was actually in Triumph in the Skies 2, but he only had about 2 scenes. When I saw his name for the first episode of The Voice of Stars, I knew that more people would know of him because of his voice, but I was pleasantly surprised when his popularity skyrocketed! He reminds me of a shyer Oscar Leung (who I also really like) who worked hard for 10 years before blowing up. I think that's why Oscar was rooting so hard for Fred- they were friends who started out at the same time and had the same career trajectory.

Anyways, here's Fred singing his last song before being announced as winner. I can only find audio since I'm sure any videos were taken down. He did a great job.

Next up for Fred? He is currently filming Midas Touch with Bosco Wong, Nancy Wu, Kate Tsui, and Sharon Chan. He also filmed a series presentation clip for Eye in the Sky in which he will portray a cop. We will also be hearing new music from him very soon since he will sing the theme song of The Verbal Side of Court with Kristal Tin. This is the Roger Kwok/Kristal Tin series that will be airing in December. Hopefully, we will be hearing news of a record deal very soon!

New series to be filmed in January- 使徒行者

The new drama 使徒行者 will start filming in January with Charmaine Sheh's return to TVB. It will also star Michael Miu, Raymond Lam, Elena Kong, Sharon Chan, and Sammy Leung so far. It will have a gangster theme and will be produced by Man Wai Hung.

(This should be the series that Tony Leung Ka Fai was originally going to film before he pulled out due to an injury. It was originally called 只爭朝夕and was supposed to focus on the police, so I'm not sure how much of the script is changing.)

TVB 46th Lighting Ceremony

The cast of Brother's Keeper, Come Home Love, The Hippocratic Crush II, Will Power, and Voice of Stars gathered together for the 46th Lighting Ceremony. 

(Fala Chen was also there but I'm not sure why she isn't in the above picture. Maybe this picture she got there afterwards or left before this was taken? She's in the picture below next to Ruco Chan on the bottom right.)
