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

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)
Nicholas Tse says he is a homebody and can go three weeks without going outside

Nicholas Tse Ting Fung continued to talk about his past in CHEF NIC. Actually Ting Fung used to hang out at very local places, like video game arcades in Sham Shui Po and Wan Chai. "I would go to the Golden Shopping Center to buy games. When I was in my teens, I would go to the arcade to play games. I still was in my 20's. At the time I was already in the business. I would stand by other players to 'follow the machine', waiting for that stack of coins on the machine when he was done. I would fold my arms, stare at him and posed an impatient expression to let him know 'your playing was very average, hurry up and let me play'. Then that person would fold his arms, turn around and stare at me, haha!"
The funnies though was Wong Jing would go to the arcade to talk about scripts with Ting Fung. "The arcade I went to the most was the one across the street from Wanchai's Emperor. At the time I played soccer games. Wong Jing would come to find me, put a bag of game cards on the machine. We would play while talking about scripts. He would ask, 'would you make the movie', I would say, 'Great, do it, who else is in it', 'when would it start production', yet my eyes never left the monitor, my hands kept pressing the controls. That was how we talked about scripts."

JW and Babyjohn Choi Hong Yik two nights ago attended a charity film festival event. Babyjohn had two films in production and another web drama. In one film he worked with Francis Ng Chun Yu. Babyjohn said that he learned a lot from him. The film had many emotional scenes that forced him to be in the moment at anytime. He said that the production was very tough, but the toughest was finding a bathroom while on location. Because the locations kept changing, finding a bathroom was not easy. In addition he loved to eat, so he had to achieve "endurance is golden".

WHEN SUN MEETS MOON (MAU YUT MAU YUET) recently became a rare Hong Kong film that broke out among Hollywood blockbusters. To thank the audience, stepping into its second week the audience appreciation event marathon would continue. Aside from director Benny Lau Wai Heng and lead actress Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi), Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui and Aimee Chan Yan Mei earlier held a helping hand and made surprise appearance at different cinemas.
In mid June, Benny and Kathy will fly to Shanghai to attend the 21st Shanghai International Film Festival opening and represent WHEN SUN MEETS MOON. Kathy said, "Aside from people in Hong Kong, I also want viewers of other places to experience the unique emotions of Hong Kong. I am very pleased to participate in the film festival." Earlier Kathy made a sexy appearance at the Beijing Film Festival. Would she have new breakthrough? "I haven't reached my bottom line yet, I can be a little sexier! However, I have to coordinate with Moon's personality in the film."
Benny expected Kathy's career would reach higher. For his next film he might have to "arm wrestle" with other directors. Kathy pounded her chest and made a guarantee, "I will keep waiting for Director, give you the entire schedule!" Benny mentioned that he wanted to skinny dip with Daichi Harashima to celebrate an ideal box office performance. Kathy said, "I would personally cook for everyone!"

Louis Cheung Kai Chung two nights ago with Myolie Wu Hung Yi, Patrick Tang Kin Won, Sukie Shek Wing Lei attended the web drama HONG KONG WEST SIDE STORIES wrap banquet. Ah Chung revealed that in February next year he would work on a new film about a boxer. Originally it should have started production last year but it dragged on. He ended up spending two years to prepare for his character, kept training to box and get bigger. So far he has gained 35 pounds. For the shoot he would have to drop another 20 pounds. Ah Chung said that he did not have that much flesh even in his adolescence. Now he was full from every year and went from 145 o 180 pounds. His arm was 15.5 inch thick, his chest was 44 inches and he went from medium to double extra large! He had to get an all new wardrobe.
Ah Chung said that now his look was very macho, but he would try to avoid similar subjects. Earlier he already turned down a movie about MMA. His new film would be an inspirational boxing film about family, a rare subject in recent years. He already looked forward to it very much. Ah Chung has been training with a boxing coach for six full days a week. "The coach started to learn to box in his teens. I am in my 30s or 40s, I am really very tired. I would be tired from just standing. Actually ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film WHEN SUN MEETS MOON last week opened with passionate word of mouth, landed in the top three on the single day box office and broke HK$ 2 million to become a rare Hong Kong film to break out the various Hollywood blockbuster in recent weeks; in a few short days it already surpassed its predecessor WONG KA YAN's box office performance, which greatly encouraged director Benny Lau Wai Heng. Earlier as he met "Housemaster Ting" Mark Lui Chung Tak for dinner, they suddenly went to a nearby cinema for a "surprise" audience appreciation event. Mark who has not appeared at a WHEN SUN MEETS MOON audience appreciation event was tempted. When the house lights went on, Benny and Mark suddenly appeared to surprise the audience and the entire audience gasped! Mark said, "When we suddenly appeared, we seemed to have awaken everyone from the audience's memory. Without any advanced sign, we sensed that everyone liked this film. As a part of the team I was very happy for Benny!" Maggie Siu Mei Kei and Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi)'s mother and daughter relationship touched a viewer deeply, and some praised Jackie Lui Chung Yin for being even more masculine than before. Benny immediately said to Mark, "Just at dinner now, wasn't I just in contact with Lui Chung Yin and saying that the audience praised how cool he was? See, I really didn't lie to him!" At this time, a lady in the front row loudly said, "I will tell his wife (Mak ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
