Kenneth Ma Admits Visiting Pornography Sites; A Little Sex And Lots of Humor?

Kenneth Ma Admits Visiting Pornography Sites; A Little Sex And Lots of Humor? thumbnail

Recently ascending to “First Diamond Bachelor in TVB City,” Kenneth Ma (馬國明) displayed his love and loyalty while discussing his short romance with Nancy Wu (胡定欣). After former lovers split up, there was no need to accuse each other to gain [the public's] sympathy. Despite frequent negative press accusations against Nancy, Kenneth continued to protect her.  Kenneth stated, “I have dated Nancy Wu. However, we broke up in less than one year. I have to emphasize that she did not move to Tai Koo City specifically for me. At the time, we were not dating yet…. It’s difficult to say who had pursued whom. After collaborating together for some time, there were feelings and thus we got together. Our breakup was not due to the rumor that Nancy possessed a ‘princess attitude’ upsetting me! The truth is that I am a very boring person and we were not happy while together. Naturally we broke up, but we are still good friends!”

Recently, TVB rejected three mainland China filming offers for Kenneth, based on the reason that there were scheduling conflicts. A conservative estimate projected that Kenneth lost $3 million Yuan due to the missed opportunities. Despite this, Kenneth was still loyal to TVB at this moment. “Witnessing other artists earn a lot of money while filming in mainland China, I would be lying if I said that I was not envious! However, the timing truly did not work, so there is nothing that can be done…. Without TVB, then there is no Kenneth Ma! I can only hope that there will be future opportunities to film in China!” Asked whether he was dissatisfied with TVB, Kenneth did not respond directly, thus the reporter did not make any speculations.

If A Man Is Not Bad, A Woman Will Not Love Him

Many youths possessed the love perspective, “If a man is not bad, a woman will not love him.” However, pertaining to Kenneth Ma, the correct saying would be, “If a man is not bad, a woman will love him the most!”

In the blink of an eye, Kenneth has been the industry for 12 years, growing from an extra to a first-line actor at TVB. Kenneth’s transformation over the last 12 years has been quite dramatic. At the beginning of his career, Kenneth was quite wooden in his interviews; when asked two questions, he will only respond to one question. Currently, when asked one question, Kenneth will respond to three questions.

Kenneth stated, “Over the last few years, I have found my way. For some time, I felt very lost, as if I can no longer improve! Especially in recent years, I was either the male lead or supporting actor; what does this mean? It appears as if there was no more space for advancement, while I did not earn that much money and my acting did not improve much. What should I do? Do I set myself aside and do not care? Should I take any filming offers that come my way and establish money as my top priority?  

“It was not until I saw Death Does Not Separate Three Brothers which opened my eyes. There is no need to make life so complex. I consistently asked myself whether to pick between acting and money…. In the end, I chose acting because I truly love it. There is no need to think too much! Money…I do not earn much, but you can say it is not terrible compared to some, while not too much compared to others. Then I should focus on just doing my best!”

A Learning Experience

In The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>, Kenneth portrayed an idealistic doctor, Cheung Yat Kin. Unfortunately, reality challenged his ideals; fortunately he was able to gather his inner strength to remain a compassionate doctor. Kenneth noted that he gained enormously from filming The Hippocratic Crush, including a different perspective adding to his acting experience.

“I have to thank the production crew of The Hippocratic Crush for researching the medical facts well. In the past, I have portrayed a doctor, but only as an extra, in which my line was, ‘Sorry, we have tried our best!’ This time in The Hippocratic Crush, I was a true doctor, which required memorizing the dialogue and medical jargon carefully. There was no room for mistakes, especially in the operating room scenes where real doctors on site observing the filming process. Many lines were required to be changed on the spot, resulting in the need for them to be re-memorized. This challenged my adaptive skills. Through filming The Hippocratic Crush, I learned many medical facts that I did not know before. Now, I can verbally describe the procedures for a brain examination, but only through words of course!

“One of the most memorable scenes in The Hippocratic Crush involved the death of my younger brother. I was required to cry emotionally, but I am not someone who cries easily. Although my first take passed, I was not satisfied with the results and suggested that the director film the scene again. I sat in a corner to build up my emotions. The director and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) started talking about many unhappy events with me. In the end, I was able to cry uninhibitedly. The producer ultimately used this take. This was a new experience for my acting.”

Enjoys Cameo Performances

Prior to the interview, the reporter researched netizen’s opinions regarding Kenneth Ma. Compared to other first-line actors, Kenneth performed in many cameo roles.  Some netizens speculated that he lacked ambition, while others thought that portraying too many cameo roles will impact his first-line status. For Kenneth, the opportunity to perform was more critical, even if it only involved a singular scene where he just walked by the camera.

“In my first cameo performance, I was in the next studio room waiting for my turn to film. While waiting listlessly, I saw a director that I knew well and walked over to watch the filming process and learn something. They were filming a courtroom scene and the extra assigned for the lawyer role could not meet the director’s requirements. Since my makeup was intact, I suggested that I perform the part, which only required two lines. The director was stunned and immediately changed the role to match my character name in Survivor’s Law II <律政新人王II>. The next day when Producer Lam Chi Wah (林志華) saw the footage, he was shocked…. I never minded portraying cameo roles, which are actually quite fun!”

Kenneth Ma was already a first-line actor, generating hot discussions through past performances in Survivor’s Law II and A Fistful of Stances <鐵馬尋橋>. However, in comparison, Kenneth’s roles did not leave a deep impression compared to “Laughing Gor” and “Law Ba.” Kenneth replied, “Many people have pointed this out! A good role is hoped for, but difficult to come across. I can only do my best for each role! Many people feel as if I do not have any expectations and do not fight for opportunities for myself. When I come across producers I know at TVB City, I will ask them if there are any suitable characters for me to play during our conversations. I do want that opportunity…but if you were to ask me to knock on the producers’ doors and take such initiatives, then I cannot do it!”

Friends After Parting

Since Moses Chan (陳豪) was consumed by Aimee Chan (陳茵媺) after they started dating, there were fewer “diamond bachelors” left in the entertainment industry. Known as a good man, Kenneth Ma became the “top target” among many actresses. However, Kenneth was unwilling to discuss his love life in the past. Regarding his love life prior to entering the industry, Kenneth was also tight-lipped. Last year, Kenneth and Nancy Wu’s romance was a hot topic; the pair broke up, reconciled, and broke up again. Despite the rumors, Kenneth did not admit the relationship for a long time.

When the reporter asked Kenneth bluntly about dating Nancy, he admitted that he had dated Nancy for less than a year, but the pair had separated due to incompatible personalities. Kenneth continued, “For some time, I truly yearned to date! In recent years, this feeling became less strong. You know how boring I am; I do not like to go outside and socialize. When there is no work, I can stay home for many days. So it does not matter whether I date or not.

“I possess even less urges to get married! My parents did not give me pressure in this aspect, since they are busy taking care of my elder sister’s two kids. As for being referred to as a ‘diamond bachelor’…I do not agree with the nickname. There are no women flocking to my side! It is best to let love matters run their natural course. At this time, earning money should be the priority.”

The Web Is Useful For Pornography

During the photograph session, the reporter and Kenneth Ma had the following exchange:

R= Reporter; K= Kenneth

R= Please get an iPhone and install WhatsApp! Every time, I have to send you a text message!

K= I have no time to do that!

R= You do not have WhatsApp, Facebook, or even a Weibo blog. You only have a TVB blog; how boring you are!

K= That’s how boring I am! For me, a computer is only useful for reading the news, sports news, and pornography!”

R= You are flaunting that you visit pornography sites! Do you believe that I will include this in the published article?

K= Go ahead and write it! I am so old already; even if I claim that I have never visited a pornography site, you will not believe me…ha ha!

A current first-line actor admitting that he visited pornography sites, of course it was more in a joking than serious manner! Regarded by the public as a good man and a “wooden log” in the past, Kenneth surprisingly knew how to incorporate a little sex and lots of humor in his jokes. It was indeed a rarity. Whether the joke was funny or not was dependent upon perspective. However, the current Kenneth Ma was extremely adorable!

Jayne: I hope Kenneth Ma purists do not mind that I took a little liberty with the title of this article. But I thought the new tagline, “a little sex, lots of humor” would serve as a nice image makeover for Kenneth, instead of his old image as a “wooden log.” Hehe would love to continue to see a sexy, humorous side of Kenneth!

    1. Funn Lim says:

      First of all

      “One of the most memorable scenes in The Hippocratic Crush involved the death of my younger brother.”

      Thank you for this huge spoiler! And I don’t mean it sincerely! For god sakes man! Why reveal such a huge spoiler? Why? Think before speak!!

      Ok, next.

      Is he trying to tell us he has a bad boy personality, to interesting-fied himself sort of? Well I don’t mind. Tell me, who hasn’t walked into, stumbled or seen a bit of porn? It is everywhere. Question is gay porn or heterosexual porn? It is not illegal and I wouldn’t even call it immoral. A joke can even be said, he needs to learn from these sites when he was with Nancy! Joking! Joking!

      And then the 3 mainland series that TVB rejected him and so he can act in… what? Because I do like him in Hipporcratic Oath but I feel he will never improve if he doesn’t venture out. It did Kevin wonders. Even Roger benefitted years ago. So Kenneth shouldn’t be so docile. He doesn’t care about money, he doesn’t care about fame or promotion, he cares about his work and so he shouldn’t let TVB screw him over, 3 times! He should make the decisions himself, look at the script and decide.

      I saw some pictures of Steven in that China series from Sehseh’s blog and it looks like a substantial role which I am glad Steven insisted on. Again, you can never improve by sticking to the same company, one which is not even doing well artistically. It’s your career Kenneth, if money is not an issue, then don’t sacrifice your principle; that is to be a better actor. You can never improve by just doing TVB.

      “There are no women flocking to my side! ”

      I find that hard to believe. If he is a log, what is Moses? And Moses was quite in demand when he broke up with Bernice.

      Whilst I like the fashion in the photoshoot, it seems for once this mag is using less photoshop than usual. Kenneth looks bloated, tired and a tad old. He deserves better make up, lightning and photoshop.

      And lastly, COME ON MAN! DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR HAIR!! Either it is too uncle or too weird or uneven or shaven. Is there not a hairstyle that suits him? Yes there is. Gel it up!!

      • MIB says:

        I thought his brothers death was obvious?? In the teasers/ad he said something along the line “How can i be a good doctor if i cant even save my brother?” (not the exact line but something along it) that lead me to believe his gonna start off with issues at the start cos of his brothers death then when it aired and it showed his brother alive i thought ah so his gonna die later – i predict a car crash =P

        and also in the theme song music video showed his brother on the stretcher (?) being wheeled into surgery with his mother crying so yeah i always assumed he would die =S

        Wow 3 offers rejected? i feel like his the next Steven Ma (Not acting wise, but the way he is treated by TVB)

        IMO Kenneth is TOO easy going/TOO nice. I remember he was getting pranked on a show hosted by Kitty Yuen and Sammy and they kept spitting water on his face and he still didnt get annoyed. TVB rejecting 3 jobs… what is wrong with them? He only had two roles last year plus two cameos.
        He couldnt film at least one of the offers?? Didnt Kate film 5 series last year?? Hmms

      • Jayne says:

        Below are the women that Kenneth was interested in:

        1) Sharon Chan- Perhaps Kenneth’s first crush. I like them together very much!

        2) Margie Tsang- In a recent interview, he said he never clasped Margie’s hand, while stating that he and she have unending topics of conversation. I sense Kenneth had liked her at one point, but since Margie was already a single mother, maybe things never progressed.

        3) Nancy Wu- Kenneth said that they were incompatible, likely due to his boring personality and not possessing any exciting hobbies other than watching some online porn.

        Based on past history, Kenneth seems to prefer talkative, outgoing personalities. In addition, Kenneth was rumored with Kate Tsui at one point. They had collaborated on numerous series back to back. I think both said that they treated each other like “brothers,” but I can’t help feel that Kate’s personality also fits the bill.

        Physically, I like Kenneth with Linda. But he also looks great with Kate too.

        • Kidd says:

          Since Kenneth has unending topic of conversation with Margie, they seems very compatible. Maybe he likes Margie but Margie doesn’t like him in that way or doesn’t want to start a new romance?

        • Hikaru says:

          Sharon Chan: Well shes taken now isnt she? *Kenneth no go zone lol*

          Margie Tsang: I feel his too immature for her. Maybe a fling did/could happen but i think Margie would want a father figure for her son (Or does she have a daughter?) Kenneth is rather playful, easy going etc so not “serious”

          Nancy Wu: I feel shes like a Myolie, both hard working and career driven . But opposites attract look at Myolie and Bosco. But it may not work for all

          Selena: She seems carefree, easy going and a nice girl (IMO anyways) shes not a bad match with Kenneth. I read he liked her too? these two may work =P

        • Kidd says:

          @ Hikaru

          Margie has a son. His name is Martin, if I remember correctly.

        • moses says:

          Hello Jayne,
          How you know Kenneth first crush was with Sharon ?have you interview with him before on jaynestar?
          He shall consider moving to movies carrier now ,not just acting in Mainland drama ,TVB reject his demand on mainland drama ,no big deal man ,go to movies industry like Ekin Cheng and Louis Koo ,you can do it .

        • Funn Lim says:

          Margie was probably his favourite actress when growing up. I find that just weird.

        • josie says:

          Funn,

          Can’t blame a guy for trying to live out his childhood fantasy.
          Margie probably didn’t want to be called a cougar and embarrass her son. She’s a good mom.

          Anyway, I like this interesting side of Kenneth. He has his internet priorities in proper order: first news, then sports, and last is porn.

        • HeTieShou says:

          SOrry but since Kenneth is younger and has never been married, I think he deserves to be with someone that has also never been married as well. I have nothing against Margie since she was one of my favorite TVB actresses in the 80s, but she has been once married and has a son. I feel that Kenneth deserves better than that..

        • HeTieShou says:

          @Hikaru,
          Yes, Margie has a son named Martin Lam with her ex husband, Stephan Lam. They got married in 1996 and divorced in 2002.

        • Fox says:

          @HTS: Are you against married woman & unmarried man? I think the word “deserve” isn’t be used in this case as who is “deserve” to who will need more than just age. Since it comes to love, hard to say married or unmarried woman/man doesn’t deserve to have second spring. Maybe Margie thought that Kenneth doesn’t deserve to her so no romance story happened.

        • Kidd says:

          @ HTS

          I thought you are the advocate of true love and against traditional custom? How come you discriminate against divorced people now?

          This is so ‘wooden door match wooden door, bamboo door match bamboo door’ idea.

        • HeTieShou says:

          @Kidd,
          It is true that I an advocate of true love, but it also depends on the case. I am against many things regarding tradition, but not everything…. I am pretty modern but am still traditional in some ways and one of them is that I don’t think someone that hasn’t been married before should be with someone that has been divorced. That goes for the guy and the girl. Like my mom is really traditional and says that it is ok for the guy to be previously married but not the girl. I don’t find that fair at all…

      • Kidd says:

        I think the hairstyle in this photo shoot look nice on him.

        I’m also glad that less photoshop is used here. Kenneth look real. Kenneth is not spring chicken anymore. He’s nearing 40. His photos look age appropriate for him and give off a mature feeling.

        • Funn Lim says:

          Kidd, I do believe the less photoshop is not by choice but by laziness. It doesn’t do Kenneth any favours to look old, tired and bloated in a photoshoot. There are many ways to show real age, this photoshoot is the wrong and I believe unintentional way.

        • Crystal says:

          Umm… Well Kenneth doesn’t look that bad but I think he could do better with his hair maybe something new than that one side spiked up crap

    2. HeTieShou says:

      Great interview and article on Kenneth! Thanks so much Jayne and I am glad that Kenneth is more open than he was in the past. What is wrong with some porn? HE is 38 now so it would be strange if he never saw porn or visited any porn sites. Honestly, that is not a big deal and I don’t think he is a virgin anymore so what is the big deal about watching some porn.

      I can’t believe that TVB did not allow him to film in China and refused 3 offers!! No wonder I have not seen him in any China productions yet. I think that he will eventually get to film in China or else I don’t think he will be happy or continue to be loyal to TVB if they continue to do that. I wonder if TVB did that on purpose to prevent him from going to film in China?? I agree with Funn, that if Kenneth ventured out then he will have many new opportunities to improve and become a better actor. I am glad that he is not just thinking about money like many others… Good for him that he has the passion for acting and that I think will help and motivate him to improve.

      • Jayne says:

        HeTieShou, Funn
        I think Kenneth is someone who is overall comfortable with where he is…he seems to have a true passion for acting. He may feel that he is undervalued in what he earns. In recent interviews, he also mentioned that he would like buy a 1,000 sq ft home to live with family, which will require a lot of money. Thus, he has set eyes to earn more money and it may be a matter of time before he films his first China series.

        Funn: “I find that hard to believe. If he is a log, what is Moses? And Moses was quite in demand when he broke up with Bernice.”

        I found Kenneth to resemble a wooden log in “Triumph in the Skies.” The reporter felt this way about Kenneth in his early career. The series that made me start liking Kenneth was “Love Guaranteed” in which he was a smooth-talker and quite humorous. I realized Kenneth wasn’t that wooden after all and had his own charm.

        Funn, you mentioned many times that Kenneth’s pout makes him lose credibility in his acting. For me, it’s his puppy eyes. Sometimes they will be fierce and other times, they are softer and more innocent than a child. Until his eyes harden into true pessism, he will never be convincing to me as a villain.

        • Funn Lim says:

          Maybe it is true. To be truly a good actor, you must be a quiet observer who had a bad childhood.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I agree and think that Kenneth’s sweet puppy eyes are what make him a less convincing villian. He is more fit for those sweet and clumsy type of roles like the role that he played in Lost Chamber of Love. He was so cute in there…

    3. HeTieShou says:

      I also wanted to add that I still remember how cute he looked playing a cameo in Eternal Happiness. He looked so young that I almost did not recognize him. I really enjoyed watching him Lost in the Chamber of Love as the king. He was so clumsy and sweet. I think that was my first time seeing him as one of the leads. I hope to see him in some great China productions. He is really missing out…

    4. wanderlust08 says:

      gasp! I can’t believe that Kenneth’s younger brother dies in the series, I really like his character so far. I wonder why he would reveal that spoiler…sigh. Anyways, I like Kenneth Ma’s acting in The Hippocratic Crush, it’s definitely quite likable and hopefully he’ll get more recognition. I’ve always found him to be quite underrated and I think TVB should promote him more than Raymond no offense, just my personal opinion. anyhow…i never really got the rumors of kenneth and margie, they’re like 10 years apart :O

    5. melanie says:

      kenneth just confirmed what i feared most. i didnt want the little brother to die. in my mind the scene was him saying “how can i be a doctor when i can’ save my brother” meant that he wasnt the one able to save his brother but it was another doctor who saved his brother. even with this spoiler, i will still cry because i love him :(

      i love seeing kenneth’s humor side. he is a cutie pie and i want to see more of him in tvb dramas along with ruco.

      anyways, regarding his dating life, i like seeing him with selena li

    6. Kidd says:

      ” “If a man is not bad, a woman will not love him.” >/i>

      “If a man is not bad, a woman will love him the most!”

      These 2 lines are so untrue, at least, for me.

      Good != boring.

      You can be a good man and still have exciting hobbies.

    7. Kidd says:

      I like how Kenneth love to play cameo roles. He has said this before, so, I already know this for a long time. But, reading it again still brings a smile to my face.

      Reading the whole interview, I have the impression that the reporter is very fond of Kenneth Ma. The whole article is very positive. The reporter did not add any speculation when Kenneth didn’t answer a question and when Kenneth said he visited pornography side, the reporter immediately clarified that it’s a joke.

    8. MIB says:

      TBH i quite like when known stars play cameo i remember two series had a little cross over (i forget which ones… i think it was a cop show and one about wedding planning?) sometimes cross overs are fun.
      I remember when Kenneth did a cameo and played his MK Sun character (Survivors Law) in “Your Class Is Mine” was entertaining lol

      Remember when Micheal Miu randomly appeared in War of the in laws 2?

      Maybe Law Ba can cameo THC? lol actually i wouldnt mind Bobby cameo-ing as his armed reaction character or FH char =P

    9. sushiroll says:

      Porn or not, i just can’t believe that he’s 38.

    10. exoidus says:

      Haha, funny that he brought up the issue with porn. Most others wouldn’t even admit it if the reporter asked them.

    11. HeTieShou says:

      I have a feeling that one of Kenneth’s biggest flaws is that he is just too boring for most women. That reminds me of some great guys that I know.. They just work and go home and that’s it. They are somewhat anti social and don’t like to go out. THat is a big turn off for many girls even if the guy is a great catch.

    12. Boscolie says:

      haha isnt it normal adult to visit porn site
      GOTTA LOVE KENNETH :)

    13. [...] Kenneth Ma (???) admitted dating Nancy Wu (???) in the past, which incurred Nancy’s  dissatisfaction that he was using the incident for [...]
