Chin Siu Ho, Danny Lee Sau Yin and others two nights ago attended a Muay Thai event. Siu Ho is no longer competing in matches as he joked that soon he could take the MTR with two bucks.

Stunt actor Choi Kwok Keung earlier died while working in the Mainland. Chin Siu Ho got choked up as he said, "On June 8th he fell from working on a wire scene in the Mainland and died. He was my elder at Shaw, I have known him since age 15. Maybe now I am older, I cry easily. When I thought about the past I would get teary eyed."

Chin Siu Ho said that Choi Kwok Keung contributed to show business, but it ended his life. The Hong Kong Stuntman Association would help with his affairs. Would he feel that Mainland safety precaution was lacking? "I don't dare to talk that, no one wanted it to happen. We are people too, stunt people use their talent to make movies, I hope directors would pay a little more attention to action scenes. Life has no take two!"

Nancy Wu Acts as a Guest for Hins Cheung: A Live Stream of "Deep in the Realm of Conscience" as the Crown Princess

Saturday June 16, 2018 Hong Kong

Credits: to hyn5 @ http://hyn5-hyn5.blogspot.com

 

 

The second night of Hins Cheung's 'HINSIDEOUT Hins Cheung in Concert' at the Hong Kong Coliseum invited crown princess and TV queen Nancy Wu as a guest. Hins' incarnate, 'Gonlando', grandly introduced her to come out: "That Hins Cheung thinks he is so great...invited a guest (saying Joey Yung)! Since he had a guest, I also have one tonight! However, this guest's background is not to be taken lightly. Everyone does not know that, before I went into the music industry, I was in the television industry! I was just about to shine in the television industry. Originally accepted a good script, but then, two days before filming, found out that my role was stolen from me. In addition, this series is airing right now! I have to put her on a public trial and ask her why she stole my role! Let's welcome out TV queen Nancy Wu!"

Nancy appeared amidst the audience's applause. 'Gonlando' laughingly said, "I think that you are very pretty today! Usually see you wearing a lot of fabric on TV. Why did you wear so little tonight? Seeing you wear [modern] clothing tonight, almost didn't recognize you...uneven eyebrows!" Nancy said, "Stealing your spotlight! I also usually see you wearing suits. Seeing you wear your female clothing back tonight, I also almost...threw up...." This drew laughter from the audience.

'Gonlando' then changed back into Hins' role, telling the audience that he and Nancy have already known each other for ten-plus years. She was the female lead in the MV of his song, 《餘震》, so they are considered long-time friends. Nancy frankly said that, every ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Francis Ng Chun Yu, Charmaine Sheh Sze Man, Julian Cheung Chi Lam and Chrissie Chau Sau Na two nights ago attended the film THE LEAKERS (SIT MUK JEH MOON)'s premiere. Speaking of the wedding banquet of Nancy Sit Ka Yin's son, Ah Sheh said that she attended with her mother and saw the groom Shi Yiu Ting cried like a baby when he made his wedding vow. Even she got teary eyed. Chilam originally was invited but he was not in Hong Kong. He regretted not being able to personally congratulate Sister Ka Yin, but he was very moved when he saw the videos. He could only take the new couple to dinner later.

Chun Yu said that while shooting the film in Malaysia he saw durian the most. One durian cultivar was called Joan Lin. He was very curious and really wanted to try it. As for the gun and car chase scenes in the film, Chun Yu admitted that he used a double. Did he skip his stunts? He said, "I have done many, but when a double is available I would let him do it. I would do the ones in shots that you can see my face in. Earlier a director tried to talk me into jumping off one floor. I said since the double was there just let him jump. He said that .....

Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Taiwan star Wu Kang-Jen, Alex Lam Tak Shun and Deep Ng Ho Hong yesterday attended their new film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI)'s production start ceremony. Boss Albert Yeung Sau Sing also participated and prayed for a smooth production. Wu Kang-Jen delivered his lines in Cantonese, but Ah Sa made fun of his less than fluent pronunciation that almost made the film an A film (category III film). She during the shoot would wear something sexy and pole dance, before hand she has already taken classic to learn the basics to prepare.

Wu Kang-Jen presented heels to Ah Sa because she would pole dance in the film. Ah Sa presented a big lai see to him in return. Ng Ho Hong's birthday was yesterday and Lam Tak Shun presented him with a birthday cake to celebrate.

Ah Sa said that she has already taken pole dancing lessons to learn the basics. "Although my dance won't be complicated, I still have to learn from scratch then add some spins." Ah Sa said that for her first class she only wore a sports bra and shorts, bu all the other classmates wore ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

To remember the late singer Danny Chan Pak Keung's 60th birthday, the record company invited many of Danny's elder and junior singers to record Danny's classic hits. In September a non profit concert will take place. Yesterday Lowell Lo Koon Ting, Prudence Liew Mei Kwan and Shirley Kwan Suk Yi attended the press conference to share their experience with Danny. Danny's fans sent a birthday card, which Chan Pak Keung's brother accepted on his behalf.

Host Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui was his film ENCORE (HOK CHOI)'s screen writer. He revealed that back then his career was working out, as his screenplays were neither critical nor commercial success. As he was about to consider switching jobs, Danny's words of encouragement made him keep writing and he became today's Cheng Tan Shui. Lo Koon Ting said that Danny was known for his fashion sense.

Reveals Needing 'Fine-Tuning', Bobby Au Yeung and Esther Kwan Want to Collaborate Again

Tuesday June 12, 208 Hong Kong

Credits: to hyn5 @ http://hyn5-hyn5.blogspot.com

 

 

Ben Wong has become a boss, investing seven figures into opening a beauty centre. Many people in the industry came to congratulate him, including Esther Kwan, Bobby Au Yeung, Flora Chan, Tavia Yeung, Roger Kwok, Nadia Chan, Alice Chan, Joyce Tang, Elena Kong, Helen Tam, Raymond Cho, Evergreen Mak, et al., creating the reunion of the classic combinations of "Armed Reaction", "A Kindred Spirit", "Flash Fax", etc.

Old partners Bobby and Esther were humourously teasing each other the entire time. It was just starting, and Bobby first revealed that, when he went to Esther's house for a New Year visit the year before, she welcomed the guests in a trendy night gown, evening calling it 'Dressing Gown 1"! However, Esther immediately denied this.

Continuing the "Armed Reaction" Combination

Regarding whether the "Armed" combination would have another continuation, Bobby frankly said that he has always thought about it, worrying that, if filming does not start soon, the viewers will no longer recognize him. He even highly praised Ben as being ageless, being even younger than his "Kindred" days. After hearing this, Esther also highly praised Bobby for maintaining himself well. Bobby immediately revealed that he has done some 'fine-tuning' and even humourously said, "Fine-tuning is not necessarily becoming thinner. I previously became thinner; friends thought that something was wrong with me, so I got fatter!"

Waiting for a Good Script to Make a Comeback

Esther frankly said that, if she were to encounter a good script, she would definitely make a comeback and film a series again, and she certainly wants to collaborate with Bobby again, and suddenly wants to portray a policewoman with superpowers from outer space, and even laughingly said that .....

The 'TVB Amazing Summer 2018' press conference was held, introducing new programmes for the summer holidays. Seventy artists, including Roger Kwok, Tavia Yeung, Elaine Yiu, Selena Li, Samantha Ko, and Moon Lau, were in attendance. Roger and Tavia promoted the new series "Another Era".

Roger revealed that, every time his children hear big big channel's music, it is as if they are spellbound, as their eyes seem to be beaming, and they would also dance along the music. Tavia has not returned to her mother company for a while, but there is no feeling of unfamiliarity. She, who previously starred in "Beyond the Realm of Conscience", expressed that she has watched "Deep in the Realm of Conscience". Regarding the outside comparisons, she said, "Did not say that it was a sequel. Should not compare. Not fair that way". Tavia also laughingly said that, if "Realm III" films and there is Roger, she would definitely film it. Roger laughingly said, "I ask if there is Tavia every time, but [they] always say that it is very difficult to accommodate her schedule".

"Succession War" will air on June 25th @ 9:30pm, Mondays to Fridays.
"BB Is Coming" will air on July 9th @ 8:30pm, Mondays to Fridays.
"Our Unwinding Ethos" will air on August 12th @ 8:30pm, Sundays.

Aimee Chan Yan Mei and Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) yesterday attended their film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON's audience appreciation event at a Central cinema with director Benny Lau Wai Heng. Aimee revealed that earlier she and husband Moses Chan Ho went to see the movie on their date night. Her husband praised her, especially for her crying scene. Aimee said that she was very pleased with that scene. "During the shoot I was too in character. In the end my emotions erupted and couldn't stop crying. Maybe after becoming a mother I had more life experience that was helpful to acting. Honestly I can do even better."

Aimee hoped to be able to try different characters. Would she like to work on a film as a couple? She said, "I feel it won't be entertaining, but I won't keep it from consideration. The audience wouldn't be interested. Ultimately viewers watch movies for fantasy, anything too realistic would be like a reality show. (What about intimate scenes with other male artists?) It's OK in acting, depending on what the script calls for. (Would you be OK with playing a prostitute?) Sure, the most important is the script. I too want to have even more and different opportunities to challenge myself." Aimee also said that her husband has been very supportive of her. Because both are actors they understand that they can only perform their characters well without any burden. Has ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
