Scriptwriter Chan Po Wah, whose works include "Blood of Good and Evil", "Fate of the Clairvoyant, "Return of the Cuckoo", "A Kindred Spirit", "Healing Hands II", "The Threat of Love", "The Threat of Love II", etc. will be returning to Hong Kong in October to begin pre-production on a TVB series that is expected to start filming next year.

Chan Po Wah: "The new series' theme is the multifunctional wife. The females nowadays feel that they are multifunctional wives. Due to the environment and the lack of economic qualifications, when a man is poor, he needs a multifunctional wife. However, when he has money, he wants more than one functional wife, which is four or five different types of wives".

Chan Po Wah: "If [Sheren Tang] is willing to star, the script will be tailor-made for her. If Sheren is the female lead, the best to complete the set is certainly Francis Ng; however, every role will only be confirmed after I return to TVB in October. Charmaine Sheh, Linda Chung, and Miriam Yeung are also suitable people".

When Sheren was asked whether she had already reserved her schedule, she said, "Have to match up in many ways. Now, still waiting to look at her script. (Do you know that you are playing a multifunctional wife?) I only know about it now that you have told me. She did not say it to me. I think that the theme is quite interesting. After filming 'The Family Link' with fraternal twins for two months back then, hope that that type of labouriousness does not happen to me".

For Sheren to return to TVB, she only has one hope: " will return to TVB on the condition that am able to sleep". Sheren ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

77 HEARTBREAKS (YUEN LEUNG TA 77 CHI) not only almost reached HK$ 10 million in Hong Kong but opened in the Mainland as the top Chinese film, in terms of both admission rate and reviews. Director Herman Yau Lai To and the team were truly encouraged.

The actors not only attended audience appreciation events for days, Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin and Michelle Wai Sze Nga were busy promoting in the Mainland. Ah Sa went to Guangzhou and Dongguan and met up with Wai Sze Nga in Shenzhen. Yesterday Wai Sze Nga promoted in Zhuhai as the final stop. The fans were very passionate. Some even followed the tour to support the team. Ah Sa was excited and happy about the good performance, as she said that a sequel would depend on everyone's support.

Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) expresses he brings his son, Feynman to explore Bangladesh earlier during an event on 20 June. Although Feynman is absent on 20 June, but the organisation committee plays the video of them visiting the place and it is obvious that Feynman has gained some weight. Francis explains: "He does not sleep well and has a swollen face after drinking soft drinks. But he has a good body proportion and many famous celebrities have short neck. (Do you want Feynman joins showbiz?) Let nature take its course and he is shy when facing the camera. I hope he can be a Youtuber in the future."

In the story she, Ip Tak Han and others failed and were captured. The Japanese military took them to a dark room for interrogation. "The actor who played the officer was very in character. As soon as he rushed into the dark room he started slapping Ip Tak Han. My fear came from the bottom of my heart."

The film WU KONG yesterday held a Beijing press conference. Director Derek Kwok Chi Kin, producer Huang Jianxin led the "WU KONG Heavenly Team" Eddie Peng Yu-Yan, Oho Ou, Qiao Shan to appear together. Thus even though Shawn Yue Man Lok was unable to appear he went online to connect with everyone and even recalled his 15 years of valuable friendship with Peng Yu-Yan. At the same time, several actors displayed their "Heavenly Team style". They not only told on each other but also ganged up against the director. In the end they even announced that the Heavenly Team "officially graduated".

Peng Yu-Yan, Oho Ou and Qiao Shan each carried their symbolic weapons. Peng Yu-Yan appeared oddly with his staff, Oho Ou's blade and Qian Shan's bow were rather eye catching.

When they talked about their characters, Peng Yu-Yan as the most rebellious and the most "uproarious" Wu Kong in history was dubbed the "Heavenly Team Wildest". Oho Ou was the most faithful character truly deserved the "Heavenly Team Most Faithful". Qiao Shan could not change his comedy star ways and selfishly chose "Heavenly Team Most Handsome" for himself. Then the trio rapidly made fun of each other and picked the most suitable funny description for each other. Qiao Shan was stuck with the "Heavenly Team's Most Tenth Grade Cute", Peng Yu-Yan was called the "Heavenly Team's most forced depressed".

Lok Jai was unable to appear in person but appeared on a call with everyone. He ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
