Somebody has been using Leo Ku's name to advertise a charity event, and the singer is not liking it at all.


As reported on Sina News, the singer, who attended a rehearsal for an upcoming concert alongside Shiga Lin, Mag Lam and Charmaine Fong recently, denied that he will be involved in a charity event in mainland China, after a poster of such event circulated online.


The said poster, which has been posted on the internet, featured a photo of the singer with the title "Film Star and Prince of Love Song Leo Ku Fan-Meeting". It is stated on the poster that he will be performing in a bar in mainland China on Saturday and the profit will be donated to charity.


However, upon close examination, it was revealed that it was not Leo Ku on the poster but a man who closely resembles him.


Leo said, "Many of my friends even contacted me to make sure, since they were surprised when they saw the poster. I have called [EEG manager] Mani to follow up."


Leo said that while he doesn't mind people imitating his style, he dislikes the fact that they are using his name on the poster for publicity.


"I don't want fans to be deceived, so I hope everyone would be careful," ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Nicholas Tse can't do romance with Joey Yung

Friday August 29, 2014 Hong Kong







Nicholas Tse jokingly expressed his regrets for inviting good friend and fellow EEG colleague Joey Yung to record a song and film a music video with him.


As reported on Hong Kong's On CC News, Nicholas, who has been busy promoting his romance film "But Always", recently wrote and produced the movie's theme song "Let Us Go On", and has invited Joey to sing the duet with him.


However, it was only when they started to shoot the music video that both stars realised that it was very awkward for them to play a couple. Nicholas said that he wasn't able to even keep a serious face when the director asked him to hug Joey from behind.


"Joey and I are as close as siblings, so holding each other and singing a love song feels very strange and very embarrassing," said Nicholas, adding that it somehow felt incestuous.


"It felt like a brother holding a sister, and it's very hard to hold back our laughter!"


However, the filming must go on, and EEG's manager Mani Fok had to interfere and made a few suggestions to them. Despite many outtakes, the two stars finally finished the music video in two hours' time.

TVB actress Samantha Ko recently expressed her displeasure after a photoshopped photo of her face on a body of a naked woman holding hands with a child circulated online.


As reported on Mingpao News, the actress, who attended the premiere dinner for TVB's "Line Walker" recently, stated, "This is not the first time a person did this to my photo. I have kept quiet about it before, but it seems that it's getting worse."


"I feel so embarrassed about it but helpless at the same time. I don't think mothers would appreciate such pranks, and it is very disrespectful to children," she added.


Samantha also encouraged the public to do more charity work rather than wasting their time creating fake photos.

"I've already known this fact since we were dating," said Yumiko.


Meanwhile, the singer revealed that she will be holding her wedding at the North Harbour Grand Hotel on 5 September. However, most of the details have yet to be completed.

New Hong Kong director James Hung's new film THE SEVENTH LIE (DAI CHUT FONG YIN) earlier held two screenings in Hong Kong. James said, "After waiting for such a long time it finally can be screened in Hong Kong. I was very worried that the Hong Kong audience wouldn't be able to accept the American style film language and style in the film. At the first screening, the audience response to the earlier part was more cautious but got much better later. They even cracked up during the dark comedy spot! The second show took place at the art center, maybe because the audience loves film more they put more effort to dig into what I want to express. After the show they even stayed to attend the forum and enthusiastically asked questions. I really thank them for their passionate support. I hope to continue to have good response during its official release (around November)!"

Actor Philip Keung Ho Man also shared his production experience. "James' communication with actors was particularly thorough, giving the character more dimensions. When I work with new directors, I can explore even more in my performance! However this time we shot at a public restroom for three or four days, I have truly never had such fear in my film career!"

When this was made public, Francis expressed regret over participating in the show as 'he thought he only had to bring his child to the zoo. Now he has become a gorilla (laughing stock).'
