[News] TVB Establishes Own Record Label Entices Raymond Lam to Renew Contract

0 comments
Back in the day, due to the broadcasting regulations, TVB was not allowed to touch anything outside of television broadcast business, thus the company was forced close record label Capital Artists. However, today the restrictions have been relaxed and plus TVB had excavated a great number of talented singers through their singing shows The Voice and Voice of the Stars. TVB feels they qualify to nourish talents in the music industry and thus decided to establish their own record company called Star Dream Entertainment Limited "Star Dream" (星夢娛樂有限公司). Star Dream will not only help artists launch music albums, but will also help them open concerts, manage their work in showbiz and protect their reputations. Furthermore, the artists are absolutely not permitted to perform in something that will damage their image and hope to give them a balance in acting and singing. TVB music producer CW Tang (Tang Chi Wai) will be the main person in charge of the record label's productions. To date, the majority of Raymond Lam's songs were produced and composed by CW Tang.

It was understood, Raymond Lam, Fred Cheng, Linda Chung and Myolie Wu will be TVB's "Big Four" trump cards for the new record label. Other "Voice of the Stars" contestants like Ronald Law, Grace Wong and Shirley Yeung have hope in joining the music industry. Recently it had been widely rumored TVB Siu Sang Raymond Lam intends to leave the company, but TVB is still actively trying to make him stay and plans to make him Star Dream's "First Brother" in hope he'll change his mind. As for Fred Cheng, nicknamed the "High Score King", responded yesterday. "I don't mind which company I sign with. I'm waiting for TVB to make the arrangements. (How will you choose between singing and acting?) I've been acting in TV series for over 10 years, I really like acting, but if I had to choose, I really can't do it! Let TVB make the decision. (Do you think there is better success in singing?) I haven't thought about it that far. I want to concentrate on the October 12th and 13th Voice of Stars final first."

Linda still has a contract with Star Shine, in regards to returning to TVB's embrace? She said: "I'm from TVB, there is no say on who is my maternal home. Of course I will support TVB establishing their own record label. Its a good platform to let artists develop their talents, but I don't know how to plan because I still have several years left in my contract with Star Shine."

[News] Linda Chung Asked to Give "Protection Fee" in Mainland

0 comments
Yesterday Linda Chung, Kristal Tin, Ruco Chan and Edwin Siu attended TVB new series Brother's Keeper promotional event. During the games, Kristal pretended to kiss Linda; Ruco and Edwin embraced pretending to be gay. When speaking of Ada Choi's "kidnap-like" incident in Xi'an, Linda thought it was very terrifying: "I will have the highest level of alertness when I'm working in Mainland. I usually have my manager with me, but I've once encountered a small mishap too, someone tried to get 'protection fee' from the crew." It was said she could get rumored boyfriend Philip Ng to teach her a few defensive moves, Linda said: "It's useless to know martial arts when you don't have the physical strength."

Due to No. 8 Typhoon Usagi hitting Hong Kong, Linda's original schedule of shooting Tiger Cubs II promotional clip and a commercial were cancelled. She took all her safety measures and hopes the typhoon will keep viewers at home to watch Brother's Keeper premiere and bring high ratings.

Edwin was very pleased Brother's Keeper brought him more jobs. He laughed and said he still needs several years to save up enough "wife savings". He is currently busy shooting Wong Jing's series World of Turbulence in Mainland. Wong Jing paired him and Yiu Yiu together, Edwin hoped they can be as comedic as Stephen Chow and Sandra Ng, but unfortunately they don't have any kiss scenes. Edwin's most memorable scene was when he danced with sexy girls. "It was awkward, they were swinging around, their hair were flinging here and there. It felt like a ghost went into my body, luckily I was able to withstand it." As for TVB's HK$900,000 anti-competition fine, Edwin said: "Joey Yung said it well, if we weren't asked to speak Mandarin, our Mandarin wouldn't have improved so fast."

[News] Tiger Cubs II' Cast Exclaims "Delay No More!" Frightening Linda Chung Thinking Its Profanity

0 comments
Last night Joe Ma, Linda Chung, Mandy Wong, Him Law, Oscar Leung, Christine Kuo and Grace Wong had the Tiger Cubs end-of-filming celebration dinner. Joe Ma generously pulled his wallet out and paid for the some HK$10,000 dinner, while Linda and Him paid for the raffle prizes. Since the filming of this series began, the cast were injured one way or another from the action scenes, and had to wear thick/heavy SDU uniforms during the hot summer weather. The male artists really had it difficult, no wonder they all shouted "Delay No More!" when they popped the champagne. They men frightened Linda so much, she covered her mouth in shock, thinking they were venting out their sufferings using profanity.

Joe expressed Tiger Cubs II filming was truly difficult to bear, thus the cast had to shout out the "Delay No More!" slogan to vent out their feelings, but denied that its a swear word. The cast was just hoping they could hurry up and finish filming the series without any "delay". What if there was a third installment of [u]Tiger Cubs[/i], is Joe willing to participate? He said he will have to see the reaction to this second installment first. If the audience enjoys the sequel, a third installment can be considered. It was rumored Raymond Lam is leaving TVB to establish his own production company, Joe frankly expressed he has this thought too, but hasn't had the time to put the thought to practice.

Linda was asked if she was frightened by the "Delay No More" slogan? She expressed she didn't have many scenes with the SDU members and that it was her first time hearing the slogan, she thought it sounded very special. It was rumored Raymond plans to pull Kate Tsui over to his new production company, did he try to pull her over too? Linda said: "I didn't hear about his new company, nor have I ever asked about his personal business. I don't know whether he tried to pull Kate over, but I still have several years left in my TVB contract."

Mandy Felt Awkward During Intimate Scenes with Him


Mandy played a female SDU member in the series, because she had to wear the full SDU gear to shoot the training scenes and under the blazing heat, she suffered from a heatstroke once. She said: "Because there was no ventilation in the uniform, it got even more stuffy when we had the mask on. When I got home after work, I felt really dizzy and my muscles ached, I think I got the heatstroke!" She frankly expressed the most difficult scenes were having to run up the hill in the heavy SDU uniform and carrying all those weapons. Mandy expressed she and Him Law are a couple once again in this series, and its the series she had the most intimate scenes. She said her romantic storyline involved intimate and bed scenes, "I felt a little awkward, but this is my fourth time collaborating with Him, as long as it fits with the plot, I don't mind hugging and kissing. We're close friends, so the scenes went smoothly. (Fear Tavia Yeung might be unhappy?) We're all friends!"

Christine & Eliza Denies Fallout Rumor


It was reported, because Christine Kuo has gained some weight recently, so Eliza Sam snatched some of her jobs away and ultimately ended up breaking off the sisterly relationship with Christine. Christine defended her good friend Eliza and said she fully trusts Eliza's personal character. They chatted about this rumor before and joked they should consider French kissing to prove that they are not on bad terms. Christine said: "But after more thought, we decided it wouldn't be a good idea, otherwise they'll have to keep doing that every time there is a fallout rumor. We lived together for six months before, I've always been the one who gets taken care of, but she is the first person I had to take care of." She frankly expressed she is planning to take vacation and go back to Canada to look after her mother whom had just underwent surgery and because she's having some personal issues that she wants to take care of.

[News] Linda Chung Looked Her Worst Like a Zombie in "Brother's Keeper"

0 comments
Yesterday Ruco Chan and Edwin Siu went back to their primary school to promote for TVB new series Brother's Keeper along with the other cast including Linda Chung, Leanne Li, Louis Cheung and Kristal Tin. It turns out Ruco and Edwin used to be classmates in primary school, they sure do have fate!

Recently, TVB's current broadcasting series aren't doing so well in the TV ratings, it appears grand production Brother's Keeper will have to come to the rescue. When the cast accepted interviews, they expressed they have confidence. Ruco said: "The series is very dramatic, I believe there will be resonance in the audience!" Its been over 10 years since Edwin had been back in his primary school, he explained he didn't know how to get there and was late to the promotion: "I don't know my roads. If I didn't have a GPS, I wouldn't know how to go anywhere! (What about rumored girlfriend Gigi Ho's house?) Where? She moves so often!" Asked if he hopes to get an award based on this series? He said: "Hope to take the 'Best Series' award!"

Linda disclosed she plays a SARS patient in the series, "This is my ugliest look in all of my career, the makeup looks terrifying! When I don't speak, I look like a zombie!" Having a series broadcast near the TVB Anniversary period is an advantage to get the year-end awards, but Linda feels normal about it: "I don't put so much weight on the awards, I just hope the audience enjoys watching the series!"

Louis Cheung said when he was a young student back in 1993, Lan Kwai Fong was crowded with people on New Year's Eve, but he had never been to Lan Kwai Fong before, he urged the students not to go either. The MC Becky Lee teased him: "Boys and girls, you must learn not to tell lies!"

The serial, set between the years 1980 and 2013, depicts the moral life struggles of two half-brothers Kiu Tin-sang (Ruco Chan) and Law Wai-shun (Edwin Siu) during the late and post-colonial periods of Hong Kong and Macau.

[News] "Tiger Cubs 2" Big Explosion Scared Residents, Called The Police

0 comments
Yesterday Joe Ma, Linda Chung, Him Law, Nancy Wu and Mandy Wong were shooting a big explosion scene for TVB new series Tiger Cubs II. The crew chose to shoot the scenes near a large government stadium in Causeway Bay. The scenes started out with Linda opening fire at Timmy Hung, then Nancy drives a car into an office building and threw a grenade. The SDU heard the loud bang and rushed to the scene.

Before the cameras rolled, the cast were relaxed and chatted happily, but once the staff shouted to clear the location, they ran over to their positions for this big scene. Linda, Nancy and Mandy ran over to their distant positions in 9 seconds!

Because the explosion was too severe, the staff asked all artists to take cover to avoid injuries, but among the female artists, Linda had the best treatment. She got to sit in the car and enjoy the big explosion scene in the car. The others had to stand there or crouch besides the car! At the moment of the explosion, the blaze was extremely fierce and not long after the dark smoke filled up 5 stories in the building. The people in the nearby buildings thought there was a real explosion and called the police. Results, several fire marshalls and the police came to the scene. Producer Lam Chi Wah said: "So sorry, the loud explosion sounds frightened everyone. We followed all the procedures and finished shooting the scene in the designated area."

Linda got special treatment from the staff, allowing her to sit in the car during the explosion. Linda was asked if she was in a great panic? She laughed: "I wasn't that scared because the biggest explosion scene I've done was actually in Brother's Keeper, so I had the experience. (Why did you hide in the car?) I'm the most well behaved, the staff kept telling me to get in the car, treating me just like a real BB. Actually I really wasn't that scared. (The explosion scene got the police involved?) Proves how realistic the scene was, we want to show the audience the best. The crew had done all the registrations and applications beforehand, but if the loud scene disturbed other residents, really sorry about that."

Joe expressed Tiger Cubs II filming is ending later this month, and praised the HK Police Force really does work efficiently, they came right to the scene when reported, but he was sorry the explosion caused disturbance to the nearby residents.

Him Captures "Evidence" On Camera

Him expressed he ran to the best place to take over and used his phone to take a picture of the scene. He shared the picture with everyone around him. Him disclosed this is not his first time shooting such a big explosion scene, so he wasn't as frightened as the female artists. He said: "Just now after we completed the scene, I immediately took off my helmet and put up a 'YEAH!' hand gesture to prove that I was in the scene. (Wasn't afraid the heat may melt your phone?) So that's why I used another staff's cell phone to take the pictures, haha!"

Nancy Felt Face Heating Up


Mandy and Nancy expressed this is their first time shooting such an intense explosion scene. Mandy laughed: "I felt scared, but at the same time I wanted to see it. Its so exciting, but when I got up, the explosion already happened. Luckily there were many other people on the set. Just now the camera man said he was filming a similar scene, but ended up losing all his hair. Just hearing that scared me, so I kept my head as low as possible during the explosion. (A resident thought it was real and called the police!) I saw the police come, but we were just filming. If we disturbed the residents, so sorry!" Nancy exclaimed: "It was such a strong explosion. I felt my face heating up. The staff told me to be careful and stand further away!"
