• @jayne Wong Wai-sing is a MALE producer last time I checked so not sure why he is being referred to as “she” in every paragraph....to avoid confusion, can you have all the pronouns referring to him in this article changed back to “he” please? Thanks!
  • @m0m0 You can see "Detective Chinatown" at https://www.ondemandchina.com/movie/detective-chinatown/1?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhvb80YC65AIVhNXVCh0tHQqeEAEYASAAEgKsa_D_BwE The site also has lots of new streaming Chinese movies and dramas for free for US and Canada residents.
  • @hazel yes agree. It's really a matter a time as to when Nancy and Mandy will leave. Nancy has already won TV Queen and if there aren't quality scripts for her, then it's hard for her career to reach a higher level. Mandy may only stay for the TV Queen title, but as you pointed out she seems more interested to explore outside opportunities.
  • @jayne I feel like Mandy Wong will follow suit as she's been exploring different opportunities outside of TVB as well. She was recently in Paris and took theatre classes. Mandy seems to be bored of TVB's typecasting and wants to take her talents to another level.
  • @m0m0 The first "Detective Chinatown" is quite funny; Wang Baoqiang the supporting cast especially did well. It was also refreshing to see street scenes of Bangkok in the movie. "Detective Chinatown 2" took place in NYC Chinatown so it was nice to see scenes of the city featured in the sequel. Liu Haoran's acting improved, but the positives end there. The American characters were all portrayed by low-budget actors with cringe-worthy performances.
  • @jayne I agree. Social media and YouTube is definitely the place to be to boost popularity. Once the popularity increases the demand will increase and TV stations or advertisers will come calling. Kayee Tam is also an example of someone who built up a decent YouTube channel and now has gained much more recognition and TV time too. We all know how much work it requires and how small YouTube pays so it isn’t considered a career until she builds some sort of niche channel attracting millions of views.
  • @jimmyszeto Being a YouTuber is a logical next step to try for Whitney, similar to ex-TVB artistes such as Sarah Song, Jason Chan, and Coffee Lam. They have some public recognition, but those recognition levels will continue to decrease without any aired dramas. So these artistes can continue to be noticed by the public by opening up their lives on YouTube or sharing their favorite past-times. Unless these stars hire a talented team to help them write the script, film the videos, and edit them, the novelty of their vlogs will quickly wear off unless there's really interesting content. So staying relevant still requires some talent, whether it's good fashion sense or a sense of humor to hold audiences' interests. I had a negative impression of Coffee Lam due to her public toilet scandal, but after trying several of her YouTube workout videos they led to good results without too much time commitment. I think she's achieved greater success since leaving TVB and re-invented herself quite well as a fitness instructor.
  • There was a lot of chemistry and flirtation between Dickson and Sisley when they filmed a variety show together earlier. But Sisley is always busy filming, so they may not have had the opportunity to push the relationship further.
  • Nancy has been dropping hints that she wants to broaden her experiences outside of TVB. It's highly likely that she is ready to leave after her contract ends, to broaden her opportunities in film or even other rival Hong Kong stations. But since the contract isn't over yet, she isn't ready to announce her decision yet.
  • Carina always had good taste, as shown by her diverse red carpet fashions. Her homes are elegant and reflect her eclectic taste. William Chang did a wonderful job adding more artistic flourishes to Carina's home in Shanghai. Really love the yellow embroidered chair in Carina's office, which is a work of art in itself.
  • Usually former film stars turn to TVB under desperate measures. Although it wasn't mentioned in the article, Vincent Wan may have lost his life savings before he started filming TVB dramas in the 1990s because he needed a secure job with consistent work, although it may not have been very high paying. Kara Wai had also turned to TVB during her career low point because she had no more film offers. Vincent led a very colorful life, not afraid to try new things although he had lost everything in gambling. He ventured in many different industries from restaurants, advertising, sports management to more. It's always nice to catch up with older stars to see their current status, and even better to see that they've found greater happiness off screen.
  • @afan202 @jayne I sincerely hope that your comment section does not resort to personal attacks and ad hominems.
  • @jayne no it is indeed 141 square feet (平方尺) and that's HKD$1.9 million, not yuan (as in renminbi).
  • @hayden It should be 141 square meter, or 1518 square feet.
  • @anon Wayne's wife is his manager, so she will be with him while he's working in Mainland China. This won't sacrifice his time with his wife as they won't be separated long distance. Wayne's son is currently studying in the United States, so this likely affected Wayne's decision to shift his focus to Mainland now. His son is older and doesn't require Wayne to spend as much time with him anymore. It's not purely a reason driven by money to act in Mainland...Wayne will get to work in dramas with higher production values, which can showcase his abilities more. His career in HK has already peaked, and it is time to try new opportunities.
  • @orchid123 Jackson reminds me of a young Aaron Kwok, especially the hairstyle. Jackson's features are not especially feminine, but he tends to wear too much makeup and bright lipstick. His genuine personality is very likable and he is great in making others at ease. In the beginning of the clip, Fama said a few times that they felt transparent since a big star such as Jackson was on the show. You can see Jackson watching Fama's response intently, and finally he said he has watched Billy Luk's scenes in "My Commissioned Lover", which immediately brightened up Fama's mood. I've watched his Mainland Chinese variety shows and his sense of humor really adds to the lively atmosphere. It's a matter of time before Jackson makes a film debut; his increased appearances in HK may signify interest in working with a HK director.
  • Have done several of Coffee's workout videos and they are very effective. Can feel the difference after doing her ab workouts for two weeks. They don't take a lot of time each day, but consistency is needed.
  • @mike thanks! We try to link relevant articles to offer readers more insight on a topic whenever possible or handy. In this case, thanks for looking up the old article about Kaka and posting it here.
