Dayo Wong, Kate Tsui, and Sharon Chan to Star in New TVB Drama

The female lead for Dayo Wong (黃子華) new TVB drama has finally been found! After the media reported that Carol Cheng (鄭裕玲) and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) were both considered to star opposite Dayo, Kate Tsui (徐子珊) and Sharon Chan (陳敏之) are now confirmed to be the lucky ladies instead.

War of the Genders producer Tsui Ching Hong (徐正康), who returned to TVB recently, had wished to film a sister production to the highly successful drama from 2000. Although Carol Cheng had been offered to costar with Dayo, she prioritized her own health situation and turned down the filming offer.

TVB also explored the option of asking Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) to return for You’re Hired 2 <絕代商驕>. Although Charmaine desired to work with Dayo again, there were conflicts in her work schedule and she also declined the filming offer.

Dayo is currently meeting with TVB management to add input towards the pre-production details of the new drama. Dayo reported was given creative freedom in developing the script as well as casting choices. Principal photography for producer Man Wai Hung’s (文偉鴻) drama will commence in April.

Other cast members will include Benz Hui (許紹鴻), Jazz Lam (林子善), May Chan (陳嘉佳), and Elena Kong (江美儀).

Kate Tsui and Sharon Chan Excited to Partner with Dayo Wong

Working with Dayo will surely raise Kate Tsui’s profile further. The 33-year-old actress was thrilled to be working with Dayo and will put her in best efforts. “Many of my good friends regard Dayo as their idol. After the news circulates, many friends will likely drop by to visit the set. Now I’m listening to the story but have not seen Dayo yet,” Kate said.

When reporters teased Kate that she was standing in for Charmaine Sheh, Kate said, “I don’t have the qualifications, but with such an opportunity, I will try my best.” Kate is already feeling nervous in starring opposite the talented Dayo, who is known for his previously highly-rated dramas.

In the drama, good friends Sharon Chan and Kate Tsui will both love Dayo. Sharon expressed her admiration for Dayo’s comedic talent, especially his stand-up comedy shows. “In the drama, Dayo will be my boss, who hopes to improve me, changing me from a person lacking confidence to a successful individual. I misunderstand and think that he is interested in me,” Sharon explained why her character will have a crush on Dayo.

        You’re such a bitter fan. You probably wanted your fav to act along with Dayo. Myolie, Tavia, Fala and Linda are busy with their current projects, which leaves Kate available for the opportunity. Yes, luck is on her side, as well as with the other fadans.

        I’m not even a fan of Kate, lol It’s whatever. At least it’ll be a refreshing couple.

      This is going to be interesting! I wonder if Kate will be able to keep up with Dayo’s comedic talent. Otherwise it would just be awkward.

        hey look, everyone starts off as ‘some random newbie’. Whether or not they have luck in having any opportunites big or small when they first start off, it’s still their opportunity. Whether or not they succeed in being accepted by viewers from her performance is another thing. Oncall2 just started filming a week ago…why not be less judgemental for now lol.

      I guarantee you guys she’s gonna film another kissing scene in this drama, like she does on every drama she’s starred in the past

      • Clementine replied:

        It’s not like she requests for them most times lol. If it’s necessary for the script, then she’d be requested to do so for kissing scenes. In saying that, they really can’t force FORCE her if she really feels uncomfortable or doesn’t want to..but then that’d also show her level of professionalism imo.

      Glad to see Kate has opportunity to work with Dayo…but it is not the big production (like the 2 anni final drama at the end of the year)…so she will not get TVB Queen award 2013!

      • sel_fi_wu replied:

        not necessary no award. dayo is a ratings and good drama guarantee. charmaine raise her profile and fan numbers after you’re hired with dayo. that’s why kate is one lucky artiste that everyone else either declined or already with other projects.

          This whole overemphasis of luck is something that needs to be chucked out of the window immediately by the Asian population. The whole ‘luck’ concept is an Asian illness. This person has this, you’re lucky. This person doesn’t have this, you’re unlucky. What the beep? It is this kind of mentality that puts us inferior to the other ethnic groups, especially the White population. While the other groups have a fair share of boasting talent and skill, Asians are over here either sulking over luck or no luck. This is why I sometimes cannot relate to any of my Asian peers because of this run down attitude. I swear, I can imagine my Asian brethren going, “OH HE DIED. NOW HE DOESN’T HAVE TO PAY HIS DEBT. HOW LUCKY.” Continue this pandemic and our race will always be belittled.

        dayo will take care of the funny part while tvb might make kate do the dramatic parts. whatever it is she’s still lucky charmaine got other job and other fadans are occupied and tvb use this chance to promote kate as a lead actress in a comedy series with a talented comedian. i won’t say as a comedy actress yet.

        Last time in You’re hired, the funny part mostly ran to Dayo and Benz Hui and overall, it isn’t really a comedy.

        • Nelly replied:

          Agree. Dayo and Benz were holding up your hired I didn’t find Charmaine funny at all. Dayo and carol and ada are the funniest. I’m not sure about Kate, has she done comedy? I think comedians like dayo, johnson lee, louis yuen, wcl, all have an innate talent for comedy, he can be funny without trying, his face says it all, you have it or you don’t, can’t suddenly just have it. Lets see how she does. I just hope she doesn’t try to hard to funny aka forced comedy?!

        @Funn,
        Before watching I love HK 2013 , knowning she the main actress same things like yours on my mind Will She Be Funny?…the answer is Nope ….but she indeed acted very well on her part as lover to Bosco.

        If you had seen this movie you might understand why so many people praises her in “I Love HK 2013”

      Although Kate isn’t one of my favorite actresses, I think the combination of Sharon-Dayo-Kate is a refreshing one. Would be interesting to see a different side to Kate’s acting.

      Nah I think Dayo is the one that’s lucky having both Kate and Sharon by his side lol

      Personal preference but I’m not really a fan of Dayo, nothing against him but it’s just I’m not a fan of TVB’s comedy productions, I just don’t find him that funny although I did enjoy To Catch The Uncatachable but that’s it.
