What do you think of Marcus Kwok as Tong Hon Pong in "The Hippocratic Crush"?
(He is one of the residents in the Neurosurgery Department)

Yeah I think I heard as well he was giving tips too for the show. But be handy to use a real doctor as the actor.

why would he quit his job as a doctor and be a supporting actor for TVB? the money is $hiT!!!! haha
that's just like Alfred Hui who's a dentist and he wants to be a singer........ but i think Alfred gets a lot more money than Marcus in the entertainment industry.

maybe his real dream is to be in the entertainment industry.
Although he might have been a successful doctor, maybe it's not exactly what his heart desires?

Anyway, I think he's doing great. I hope TVB does give him more chances. He gave up a promising career for acting afterall!
Lol , I also heard he gave suggestions to the script. Funny, but I'm sure it was for the better.
Support you Marcus!

I heard a lot of people do cameo roles on the side "for fun" but keep their real jobs for the finance.

Alfred Hui is a different case as he hasn't graduated yet so can't say he gave up dentistry for singing. But Alfred is getting a lot more money than Marcus so maybe his hobby can turn into a career which can support him financially.

I can't believe that he would give up being a doctor to work at TVB. If I were a doctor and I told my family I wanted to stop practising medicine and join TVB - I'm sure my family would send me for a brain scan.

In terms of his acting - he's doing a good job as a newbie and hopefully his character has some character development in the series.

I wonder if he gets nostalgic when he's in character about the profession that he left behind; however, that being said, I definitely hope everything works out for him.

^Yea I agree, my parents would think I'm whack. "Dreams, what dreams? Money is more important!"

I guess if it doesn't work out he can still go back to being a doctor which I really think he should do tbh =/. I mean the pay at TVB is pretty bad and I just don't see him being lead material...

I don't even know whether to call him stupid or respect him for following his dreams? Either way, I definitely know I couldn't give up being a doctor for a career that is pretty much hit or miss. Anyway, I do wish Marcus the best of luck in the Entertainment Industry!

I knew Marcus when he lived here in Melbourne whilst working as a doctor. He was very hard working and I remember when he said he was returning to HK to enter the Mr. HK competition. To be honest I laughed when he said it, but as a friend I encouraged him to follow his dreams!

Not only did he get into the competition he has made a name for himself in HK as a presenter and actor. I am very proud of him for a few reasons.

1; He had the courage to leave the safety of a good career and follow his dreams.
2; He always believed he could do it, even when it probably didnt look like it would workout for him.
3; He is a genuinely lovely guy who never has a bad word to say about anyone and loves his family very much.
4; You may not know this but he has a wicked sense of humour.
5; He is probably one of the most dedicated and hard working people I have ever met.
6; He has the knack of locking himself out of his house on regular occassions!

Not everything in life is about the safest path to take, sometimes its good to take a risk or gamble on yourself. You may be surprised that you end up winning!

He finally has a doctor role that has more than 2 lines. Congrats for the upgrade.

As for why he gave up being a doctor to be an actor. Maybe he find working in ER stressful. Looking at beautiful stuff sure beats looking at wounds and blood all day long.

I also admire his courage. Not everyone is brave enough to leave a stable well paid job to follow a dream that is filled with uncertainty.

It's great to have Marcus who was a real doctor put a lot of effort and contributions for the drama. I think Producer Poon and the other cast had emphasized him and thanked him for the development of the drama.
