• @funnlim ViuTV already did something similar to this in 2018. It's called Afterlife Firm. Not exactly the same but the general premise is a firm that helps take care of the passing's belongings and funeral etc.
  • @scarlett013 This has always been the case. Audience have to get used to these stars being lead before they are being accepted. I'm sure Bosco, Ron, Myolie etc have their fair share of haters back in their younger days.
  • @scarlett013 Very true on what you said about 'lead actor material'. Many actors only become 'lead actor material' when they actually are given a chance to be lead and successfully carry said series. I think young actors should be given more chance to shine. This is the only way for TVB to cultivate new blood. Felix Wong was only 22 when he was cast as Kwok Jing. Raymond Lam has his first leading role at the age of 23. So, Kalok is in the right age.
  • Wow did not realize that these newer stars have so many haters. I'm personally excited for this and think that people should give this cast a chance. Kalok is arguable a better actor with more charm than a lot of the previously promoted male artists at TVB. Jeannie definitely has room for improvement but I don't find her annoying to watch or anything. If anything, just a little thrown off if she's paired up with Kalok romantically as I feel like she looks a bit more mature. Am also a fan of JW so it will be refreshing to see her in a more prominent role here.
  • @tommybear A lot of lead actors did not have "lead actor material" in the past. I'm sure there were people that didn't see Nick Cheung or Wayne Lai going very far back when they started out. I see a lot of potential in Kalok and hope that he continues to get opportunities. He definitely has more charisma and a better work ethic than Mat Yeung or Tony Hung.
  • @scarlett013 My dubbing rankings so far of the competitors. 1. Yoyo 2.Crystal Fung 3. Yueng Chiu Hoi
  • @scarlett013 I watched Star Academy for Gin and any record label would be an idiot to not sign Gigi. She can sing and already has a great image and style with her haircut. Really hope she doesn't sign with tvb, but Universal already has Jace Chan so seems unlikely they will sign another female singer.
  • I feel like both Nancy and Ruco (Ben too) peaked when they did A Fist Within Four Walls and I really liked them during that time. But after the fame that came with that, I feel like they're all a little lackluster now. The guys to a lesser extent but Nancy has felt a stand-off-ish since then. She doesn't feel as down-to-earth as Sisley. I do think it's crazy how many ICAC spinoffs have been produced in the past two decades - even more than the flying tigers spinoffs. Haven't they run out of scenarios to film? Probably won't be watching either though.
  • Honestly would not say I particularly enjoy James as an actor (he's okay - has had good moments but also very bad ones) but I do like him as a singer. I've always found him a bit out of place at TVB so I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing if he gets frozen/dropped by TVB. His personality and awkwardness would do very well at ViuTV so I actually hope that if he does get dropped, they don't keep him on some stupid contract. I'm glad Alfred left TVB and is doing his own thing. My biggest issue with TVB's record label is that they really box their singers in. They're all reduced to themesong artists and their songs all kind of have the same vibes. Such a shame since several of their singers are actually quite good. I've also been watching Star's Academy and am blown away by Gigi's talent. I have a pretty big feeling she'll end up taking it all but I'm sad knowing that she's going to be stuck in this same rut of themesongs/songs that all sound the same. Won't be likely to happen but really hope that Gin and Aga's record label (Universal) swoops her up.
  • Sisley is promising and she did incredibly well in this dub. I think Yoyo, Sisley, and Hoi Yeung have been the best on this show so far. I don't watch every full episode and have only seen clips but these three are leagues above the rest from what I've seen. I still think that the media has been incredibly unfair to Sisley which has contributed to the amount of haters she has. I find her hardworking and she has improved so much over the past 7 years.
  • I think they need to swap out Joey and Dickson and focus on developing the younger (under 30) artists if they really want to push the "Five Tigers" agenda. Ricco Ng is promising but like Kalok Chow, they also need to give him more opportunities outside of Lo and Behold. I'd also like to see them promote Niklas Lam (Katy's brother from HK Love Stories). In the slightly older almost 30/30+ bunch, I'd want to see more from Owen Cheung, Brian Tse, Lincoln Lam, Kelvin Leung (TT from Lo and Behold), Arnold Kwok, and Telford Wong.
  • Proud of him for standing up for himself and being transparent about his lifestyle! Marriage is definitely not for everyone and it's good that he has acknowledged this and is upfront with his expectations.
  • @scarlett013 more like Jaynestars dragging Lesley into this... the original article doesn’t mention Lesley at all.
  • Wish they would stop dragging Lesley into this mess. Fred was not engaged to LESLEY when he and Step began talking or whatever. It was a non-celeb. Lesley and Fred's breakup happened because Fred suddenly blew up from the singing competition and gained more fame. I feel like these articles keep bunching Lesley and Step together and as a result, it probably creates a lot of awkward air between the two of them. I liked Fred in the beginning when he seemed very hardworking and down on his luck but clearly, his brief moment of fame really got his true colors to come out. Regardless of how much Step defends him, I don't think it's a coincidence that these two ladies became depressed and suicidal because of him (and these are only two that we know of!).
  • Lisa is extremely privileged and has been known to be outspoken in the past so I don't doubt that she may have bullied this girl. Although Katie's responses seemed a little overexaggerated, I am more inclined to believe her over Lisa. I also noticed from the videos that her entire neck and part of her chest was covered with what looks like hives. Obviously, I don't know if she recently had any kind of allergic reaction to trigger that but I personally get hives when I am stressed out or going through high-anxiety situations.
  • @scarlett013 she’s def not, shock me to see her recognised as one. That’s why I stop watching the awards in recent years, it’s just people queuing for their turns. This year will be Mandy. I am guessing everyone in TVB was surprised when Ali won
  • @scarlett013 I can't really pinpoint scenes but her entire portrayal of a flirtatious career woman is solid throughout. Her cry scene was good. Maybe her character as the bff is just really likeable too
  • @conan2209 i feel that natalie tong is in that category!! waiting for a breakthrough where she plays a role completely not like herself before i would even consider her BA-worthy (ali was robbed of BA that year!!)
  • @luye @arc78 i also think winki deserves some recognition. pretty sure TVB would not give her BSA but hope she gets most improved! she is definitely worthy of that
  • @luye i think she meant that she's the equivalent to louis koo in that he's in like every big hk movie but she's the tvb drama version
