Taiwanese actor Ethan Ruan was admitted to the hospital yesterday for Rhabdomyolysis, a condition where damaged skeletal muscle tissue breaks down rapidly. The 31-year-old was said to be in so much pain that he broke down in tears while being rushed to the hospital.

According to media reports, Ethan had been burning candles at both ends with promotional activities for his new movie Paradise in Service and training for the upcoming Taiwan Speed Festival (TSF), a series of go-kart races to be held at the Pen Bay International Circuit in Taiwan this weekend.

On Aug 26, Ethan's good friend posted on Facebook that the actor had undergone intense training for the competition, where the test drives were done under the blazing sun. Due to the lack of rest, the avid racer started showing signs of muscle breakdown. Fortunately, Ethan's condition was discovered early and he is currently recuperating at home.

To assure everyone that he is doing fine, Ethan posted a photo on Weibo which showed him lying on the hospital bed and posing with a 'victory sign'.

The wedding at the Alila Villas Uluwatu hotel in Bali was hosted by Hong Kong actress Rosamund Kwan and Hong Kong singer Alan Tam. The former cried while giving her congratulatory speech and the bride was also moved to tears. Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang and the couple's older daughter shed tears of joy as well.

The marriage, which is Kenny's second one, was even more meaningful to him after their 17-year relationship. The two have a pair of daughters, 9-year-old Chung Yee and 4-year-old Chung Kwok.

'I am very happy today. I just want to give Fan Jiang a status and account for my daughters,' Kenny shared in an interview after the wedding.

He had also prepared four songs for the wedding, of which two English oldies were dedicated to Fan Jiang and sung by Chung Yee.

Responding to news where the media have been sent away by the police due to high security of the wedding, Kenny said, 'I'm sorry this issue (the wedding) attracted so much attention.

Hong Kong singer Andy Hui publicly acknowledged actress-singer Sammi Cheng as his 'wife' recently in response to online comments on their 'husband and wife' relationship. The 42-year-old reportedly successfully proposed to Sammi last August and the two will be tying the knot.

But Andy laughed when asked about concrete marriage plans and said, 'We will do it after William So.'

The lovebirds started dating in 1991, broke up in 2004 and got together again in 2011. Speaking of Sammi and her love for cooking, Andy revealed how happy he is when she cooks for him.

'Whenever she cooks, I will turn down dinner dates with my friends. To have someone cook for you is a very blissful thing,' he shared.

As for his future plans in acting and singing, Andy indicated his preference towards Cantonese songs compared to Chinese songs as his language background may hinder his understanding of Chinese lyrics. However, he plans to release a special Chinese album later this year.

He added, 'This will be another project in my music career. There is a fire in me but whether it will burn brightly will depend on many other factors.'

Although the singer has interests in venturing into movies, he does not wish to neglect his primary occupation and will continue singing till he retires.

Yet their manager Mani Fok Man Hei pointed out that this embrace scene could not be removed. She even suggested for Cho Yi to hold Ting Fung.

Anthony Wong won't help his son

Tuesday August 26, 2014 Hong Kong

Source: https://my.entertainment.yahoo.com/news/anthony-wong-wont-help-son-042500253.html






Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong applauded Jackie Chan for his effort to help his detained son, Jaycee Chan, but said that it would not be the case if his son did the same thing.


As reported on Mingpao News, the actor, who was filming "Lord of Shanghai" recently, shared that he has been following the case and has been using it as an example to teach his son.


"I am certain that my son is not taking drugs. But I still told him that he is the one who makes his choices in life and if he does something wrong, he will have to deal with it on his own," said Anthony.


He continued, "I told him it would be okay if his father has any power to do something, but I won't be any help. Jackie knows a lot of people, so he can hire lawyers. The treatment is different."


The actor admitted that he was not a model youth when he was young but drugs were never an option.


"Actors have to concentrate and rely on their mind. Drugs will only affect your memory and upset your concentration. I have seen actors who work under the influence of drugs and one of them can't even remember two lines of dialogue. It took a whole day. Why would you submit ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Hong Kong actress Karena Ng recently dismissed rumours saying that she has been trying to get boyfriend Raymond Lam to join her agency, Pegasus Entertainment.


According to a report on HK Top Ten, the actress, who attended the wrap-up banquet for her upcoming film "Where Are You?" alongside co-star Wong Yau and director Benny Lam recently, stated that she has no power to influence which agency Raymond will sign with.


Karena also claimed that Raymond and her boss, producer-actor Raymond Wong, have known each other even before he knew her, and that she has nothing to do with their interaction with each other.


"Moreover, I think that I would be embarrassed to work in the same agency with him and performing in a movie together," Karena added. "I don't think there is any need to mix relationship with work."


In related news, Karena will be working on a new Lunar New Year film in September.

"We thought about it and then slowly planned it. It turned out a very happy event, and I am truly grateful and happy," he added.
