• @tess Yeah, I think he needs to put back on some weight. His slimming product commercials have been forcing him to diet diet diet for 3-4 years nonstop already -- cutting fats too drastically makes ppl age faster
  • @kolo He meant his salary is high by his personal standards. Since TVB manages his other incomes, his paychecks include his mainland series, stage performances, and product endorsement (post-commission) earnings. So his claim that TVB pays him a lot is not a lie. Either way, like @holiday said, he's loaded with or without TVB so it doesn't matter to him.
  • Stupid rule in the first place.
  • Parts of this article didn't come from on.cc and is incorrect: 1) broke up 3 years ago, 2) 奶爸當家finished filming 2 weeks ago and Bosco has been back in HK a while (even had a 造型會 for 警犬巴打 which I can't find any articles here) 3) Myolie actually didn't appear, and 4) Nancy's remark translates more like "How snobby" Factcheck please
  • @geliguolu That's fine and of course TVB has the right to do it, but why not just be forthcoming instead of dragging everything out and make it into such a big issue. I can't remember whether it was VL or CT who said that they've been in discussions with Bobby and Lydia about his contract for almost half a year already -- if they have no use for him anymore, then just say so from the beginning of the discussion, something along the lines of: this is the direction the company is taking which unfortunately means there will be less opportunity for us to cast you in lead roles...based on this, let us know if you would like to continue our current collaboration or change the way we collaborate or not collaborate at all. I'm sure Bobby would've been fine if it were clearly explained, as he's not an unreasonable person....but instead, they take the "we don't want to work with you anymore but we're not going to tell you" route, which obviously backfired on them. It goes back to the poor way the issue was handled, which once again is a reflection of even deeper problems with TVB's management as well as how the station is run.
  • @geliguolu agree. I think the core of tge dispute is the behavior of both sides. TVB thinks Bobby is gentle so he wont make dispute big, just leave silently like some others. Bobby cant believe TVB can treat him coldly. Overall, the contract wont be signed.
  • @kidd Finally a comment I can agree with. I used to love watching Bobby but the last series I enjoyed with him was more than 5 years ago. He can be great of course, but the past few years has all been about the contracted commitment to cast him without much thought to make the best of him, for both sides. It's like a marriage gone bland and both parties continue making babies for the sake of making babies. I don't see anything wrong with VL wanting to terminate this dull relationship after several counseling sessions. Looks like Lydia can't accept the fact TVB is initiating divorce. And Bobby would be heartbroken, but it's business not real marriage. BTW, the long tradition of binding nonmanagement artists with (multi)annual contracts were meant to prevent them from working for ATV. It's about time TVB do without it. ATV will shutdown soon.
  • @geliguolu Ok, maybe I read the wrong source. It was a pity because the novel is nice.
  • @geliguolu I think it was just what the tabloids said more than his real words. He confirmed that he will start filming a new Chinese series soon.
  • I like watching Joe. Hope he comes back often. Was it my illusion that few weeks ago he said he will consider signing TVB long term? Or was that just speculation?
  • I do miss Bosco speaking Cantonese. Hope this is a good series, not another Madam Avenger by Miss Pang (scriptwriter)
  • @snowfire2 "Many thought that he will pick the light hearted《奶爸当家》" .... actually, it's just that he prefers modern drama over ancient costume, and definitely over shaving his head, hehe
  • @alluka He never considered that role. 奶爸當家 has been on his agenda since mid 2014. He was supposed to start filming after Lasting Affection (愛讓我們在一起) but the film was postponed.
  • @alluka He is not free at all. His current series may not finish to late June, at the earliest, if not delayed.
