The controversial social setting of Inbound Troubles <老表，你好嘢！> has made the comedy television serial into one of the most-discussed dramas in town. Praised for its realistic social commentary, the drama reflects on the dramatic cultural differences between Hong Kongers and their mainlander cousins.
With its highly successful ratings, Inbound Troubles also brought fame to several its main stars, including “Little Tiny” May Chan (陳嘉佳) and “Caucasian Girl” Corinna Chamberlain (陳明恩). Even Inbound Troubles young screenwriter, 22-year-old Mo Mo (吳沚默), is getting her fair share of headlines in the news.
Corinna Chamberlain, a 31-year-old Hong Kong-born Caucasian actress, has used this rising opportunity to release her first Cantonese plug, “Different Species” <異種>. “White” on the surface but “yellow” at heart, Corinna sings about the struggles in living as a “different species” in a land of homogeneity.
“Different Species” is written and produced by John Laudon (劉諾生), a regular collaborator with Janice Vidal (衛蘭) and Corinna’s Inbound Troubles costar, Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍). Cho Lam also helmed the lyrics for “Different Species.”
Corinna graduated from the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, where she studied musical theater and dance. Prior to joining TVB, Corinna worked as a backup vocalist for several Hong Kong singers. Corinna is also a choreographer and a dance teacher.
