Adia Chan to Make TVB Comeback in April

Forty-four-year-old Adia Chan (陈松伶) left TVB to develop a career in Mainland China in 2006, after completing her last TVB production, Trimming Success <飞短留长父子兵>. After her marriage to Zhang Duo (张铎) in 2011, Adia began to gradually fade out of the spotlight and shifted her focus to business ventures instead.

About three months ago, Adia jointly invested in a six-figure sum in a lingerie business with cosmetics guru Cheng Ming Ming (郑明明). The investment has recently begun to see returns, and Adia finally feels ready to make a comeback in the entertainment industry.

Aware of Adia’s intentions to return to the television screen, TVB executive Virginia Lok (乐易玲) reached out to Adia to ask her to film one drama per year. TVB is also willing to be flexible with scheduling demands. Once Adia signs the contract, she will like start filming in April.

Adia confirmed that she has been in negotiations with TVB, as her heart remains in Hong Kong, and she is still in touch with many of her old friends at the station. Adia would however only make a comeback after losing 10 pounds, so that she would not frighten the audience.

Virginia Lok added that Adia is in good shape and is keen to return to TVB. TVB would select a role and co-stars that are suitable for Adia, and accommodate her schedule. Virginia emphasized that the details of the arrangements are yet to be finalized.

      LOL…I think they do have a strong resemblance but Mandy Wong will be very unhappy to hear that? I mean, MW isn’t the prettiest either but she’s much younger and in much better shape… hahaa….

    It would be a good idea to have both act in the same drama series as sisters, or same character (one for the young age and one for the older age). They look very much alike.

    What makes tvb think that asking all these has-been artistes back is going to boost viewership ratings? Look at LOS. The ratings are only on par with the average tvb dramas without big names like Anthony helming them lol. What a waste of resources! Should invest in better script writers instead.

      @isay LOS has pretty high rating. It is higher than some series with only TVB managed artists. At least it is still in top 10.

      But I agree that TVB need better scripts. They dont need to send artists to film oversea or invest in lame CGI. Reality proved that the CGI of TVB is still terrible as ever despite the investment. Cant stop laughing at how fake the CGI was in some TVB series of 2015, especially the ancient ones.

        @alluka wow! Thx for the new definition of “pretty high” ratings. I didn’t know that avg 25 points for a drama starring an acclaimed movie star a 3 time tvb king and an old tiger was considered high. I would hv expected more . I believe that I’m not asking for too much if i expected at least 28 to 29 points given tvb mediocre records these days. We learn something new every day don’t we? Btw if you were expecting fantastic cgi from tvb you’re watching the wrong station. You really made me lol with your comments.

        @isay sorry i gave los too much credit. Its avg is only 24.6 lol!

      • alluka replied:

        @isay When TVB celebrates high rating for series averaged at 25, you will know that 25 is high rated. If I remember right, last year the highest rated series was 26.7 averaged. LOS landed in 9th place of top 10 rating, which is not too bad. Amongst 4 anniversary series, LOS has the highest rating. So I give it some credit.

        On the other hand, even the series only landed 10th in top 10 rating can have sequel and being described as a classic series. Therefore, LOS is a successful in the view of TVB. Next year, who know if TVB will make a sequel of LOS and also put it in classic series award list. TVB is always weird. Successful or not, it is depending on how TVB pay the favourism card to a specific series.

        I dont expect for fantastic CGI. I expected normal CGI because TVB claimed that they will invest in CGI for some series. But those series have super lame CGI that make me laugh so hard whenever I see the trailers on myTV. In fact, I dont watch those series. Only few times when I switched channels I saw parts of those series and all the time, the CGI was unacceptable. If TVB really invested in the CGI as they said, there was a corruption.

        @alluka I think I’ve mentioned before that until some people can come right out and say what they actually want to say directly I will not bother to reply further than necessary. Black can turn to white depending on how some people twist. 9th spot for an expensive and highly anticipated production with superb cast which raked in a pretty high rating of avg 24.6 points is indeed a great achievement. Bravo TVB! Way to go!

        @isay I said directly that LOS is the highest rated series amongst the 4 anniversary series and landed in 9th of top rating. So it has some credits.

        For TVB, they gave Brother Keeper which was landed as 10th series in top series a sequel and in classic series award list. So LOS, maybe 2 years later, will have a sequel and in classic series award list. It means TVB considered LOS as a successful series.

        9th spot for an expensive and highly anticipated production with superb cast is ok. All 4 anniversary series this year are invested much but LOS is the only one that managed to get the praises for acting, scenes and script. The other 3 were said to be bad at script and scenes despite outside filming, CGI investment, etc.. LOS is the highest one amongst 4. TVB put so much money on the anniversary series, they want to make at least one as a successful one. LOS is the only series that can fulfill the requirements so TVB gave it Best series. Not many people complained about that award because other than rating, LOS did well.

        You imply that Im twisting the fact about LOS? Black is still black, LOS is still successful even if it only landed in 9th place. If LOS didnt deserve it award due to its low rating, COD who won best series in Malaysia and Singapore didnt deserve as well because COD is even out of top 10 rating, landed 12th or 13th something. Bravo TVB!

        When I said I dont watch any series, I said it directly and honestly. The only TVB series that I finished in 2015 was the one with Moses and Joyce Coi. The other ones, I dont watch or finish in the middle due to their boringness.

        If you can say why you think LOS isnt an achievement, say it directly. Just because its rating is low (although its rating isnt too low)? I dont think so. So you can go right out to and say what you actually want to say directly as well.

        Is that direct enough to you?

        @alluka ahahaha finally forced the fox to show its tail! After beating about the bush this fox finally decided to admit that it’s talking about that sore point in its eye aka ruco chan. Hahaha. To me i expected much more out of los given its strong cast and the high hopes tvb pinned on it. To rank at no 9 is considered fail by me. Obviously we hv different definition of high ranking. No one is talking about deserving or not so that is out of topic.

        @isay I have nothing to show. I said everything directly from the beginning. You are trying to be cunning but overall, you are merely a sore loser fan. Accept the fact that you bashed LOS just because it won best series, not COD.

        In the end of the day, LOS is still more successful than COD. LOS is still at 9th place, better than COD which is out of top 10. Done.

        I said of COD because I know whose fan you are and why you are that bitter toward LOS. Why cant you be a little honest and stop hiding your bitterness?

        Im free today to continue, but I know you will say blah blah something to act like you are fair blah blah and quit. So if you dont have enough points to prove and just be here to spread your vinegar attitude toward LOS, you can choose to quit and I wont chase you.

        @alluka obviously you are very free cos you’re now trolling for the sake of trolling. At no point did i say los wasn’t deserving. All i said was that the series didn’t do as well as expected given the resources it had. You’re the one who’s out of topic bringing in deserving what not. Ratings and deserving or not are 2 different issues. Dont try to put words in my mouth. Granted los is ranked higher than cod but barely too. Cod 24.4 vis a vis los 24.6. Is that heaven and earth difference? Hardly even if you choose to paint it as such. At the end of the day tvb invested in big names which didn’t give the expected high returns that’s all I’m saying.

        @isay Not heaven and earth but With or Without You in the middle. Maybe the difference is just like from Hongkong island to New Territories with Kowloon in the middle. And it costs about HK$700 to go by taxi. Easily.

        At the end of the day, TVB successfully invested in LOS. For others, I dont comment because it is up to each specific series. LOS is still the winner of Best series and Anthony still brings the quality acting to TVB series.

        @alluka That works out to an earth shattering 12000 or so viewers. Hardly enough to fill the hk coliseum or thereabouts. Anyway the rankings are all pretty close. Even the top drama wasn’t that much higher.

      • alluka replied:

        @isay Because it is average rating.

        12000 is enough for HKC because concerts in HKC only can contain from 8000 to 14000 seats. That is why famous singers need to sell tickets for at least 3 nights. For the shows in Star Arena, it only has 4000-6000 seats. That much of viewer can be 3 nights of shows in Star Arena.

However a moliu person took my comment entirely out of context and wasted my entire afternoon and evening digressing to crowns and what not. If that’s not moliu, I don’t know what is.

        Whatever, in the end of the day, LOS is still the winner. A winner without complaints. And its rating is still a full HKC more than your beloved series. You are surprised? Indeed no. You are hurt. It hurts you that much to bash a series? Moliu is your word and it comes back to you.

        Final words. Im busy today so I wont have time for moliu things coming from a person who cant never give out a proof.

        @alluka Why am i not surprised? Typical of your style to throw the ball back to the other court when you know that you have no proof to back up your wild allegations. Who was it who asked loudly for proof when she/he has none to show and now says that she/he need not show it to me? Talk of a lying loser.
        Btw, word of advice to you : don’t be 以小人之心度君子之腹. I would have commented same regardless of whether LOS won BD or not or if it had a marginally higher rating of a grand 0,2 points or 12,000 viewers more than COD or not. I only searched up on the ranking after your big hoo ha. It’s you who read too much and made things so complicated. Ruco fans pls note that henceforth you’re only allowed to say nice things about LOS or else you’ll have a very moliu person hounding you from morning to night and that person will put a lot of words into your mouth. Pls note that only she/he is allowed to ask you for proof but will show none when asked in return. In other words wild allegations without proof is her/his exclusive domain. Definitely a person to avoid.

    @isay I only wait until you say that.

    Ok, I will take your word that LOS is deserving to win. As it won Best series, it proved that inviting veterans/old artists back to TVB is a wise decision because the veterans/old artists will bring the quality to the series as much as it make a deserving winner for Best series.

    And since LOS is successful, the investment of TVB hasnt been wasted. Its rating can be just in 9th place but its fame helps TVB to earn money from advertisements, sponsorship and else. It is worth the investment.

    Anyway, as long as you say LOS is deserving, I have no problem with you. You can say its rating is bad, the fact is still there: Its rating isnt bad.

      @alluka the ratings are bad by my definition . Deserving or not i can’t comment cos i gave up after 2 episodes. However it’s the viewers’ choice. By the same token cod is the viewers’ choice in both Singapore and Malaysia. That is a fact that can’t be changed like it or not.

      • alluka replied:

        @isay See, you finally show a little honest. It cant change that the rating of LOS is still higher and it can stay in top 10, not being out.

        The viewer said it is deserving. You may quit after 2 episodes so you dont know why it is deserving but still have to accept it.

        For Singapore and Malaysia, I have many doubts for the viewers’ choice especially in Singapore when Moses and Linda has the crown until the day before the last day. What we can say? TVB is always TVB. Therefore I accept the fact that COD won there and dont comment about that. You should learn to accept the fact that LOS won and stop commenting about its rating or expectation or else.

        In case you ask, I would like to repeat that I intentionally mentioned of COD because I know deep in your heart, you bash LOS and say its rating is bad blah blah due to what reason. Dont have to act fair. Your intention has been shown under the light.

        @alluka you keep missing my point which is that the ratings wasn’t as good as expected. No one is denying it ranked higher than cod. That is a fact. You say you hv your doubts about Starhub but unless you can prove it the results can’t be changed even if you dont like it. Why do i hv to stop saying that the ratings for los is not great? That is a fact too. You can’t change that no matter how you justify. Perhaps you’re the small person trying to twist my comments out of context.

        I dont have motivation to prove anything. The crown picture is all in internet. COD wins or loses, it doesnt have an affection to me because it is never in my head. If COD doesnt win, something else favoured by TVB would win. Perhaps LOS, perhaps the ghost series, perhaps WOWY. Anything can win.

        You are the one who cant accept the result and try to bash LOS – the winner – with a hope to put it down and anyone who havent watched it may think it is bad. And you are stubborn to keep your opinion regardless the facts.

        Not as good as expected? Do you have any prove about how LOS rating was expected by TVB viewers? If not, then it doesnt have any expectation. The expectation was your prejudice putting in your head in order to serve for your bash.

        You can keep being stubborn. It is your choice. I will keep giving you the facts.

        @alluka i will keep giving you the facts too that 24.6 is nothing to crow about either. It’s avg at best. Same goes for all the other dramas above it. Crown on whose head in a particular week doesn’t mean anything duh. It’s the overall votes over the weeks that count. I remember you crying foul too when ruco won in 2014 despite that the crown was also on his head. Why the double standard? You need to accept the fact that the person and the drama you detest with all your guts won. Don’t be sour.

        @isay Crown in 3 continuous weeks mean something. Crown from the beginning to the day before the last day mean something. But I said it doesnt matter. TVB is TVB.

        I accept the fact that the person and the drama I detest with all your guts won. It doesnt make me think a second because it doesnt leave an affectation on me. It doesnt change my opinion about that guy. But did I go to anywhere to say that I think it is undeserving or its rating is as terrible as it fell out of top 10? No, until its fans (you are one) show the sore loser attitude toward the winning series.

        I return the quote ’Don’t be sour’ to you. It suits you more. Dont be sour to LOS and Anthony. LOS and Anthony won! Even if LOS and Anthony lost, there would have been nothing to ensure that the series and the person you boost with all your guts would win. So stop bashing the innocent series.

        Back to topic: Getting veterans back is a way to get quality acting to TVB series. Of course, scripts are the most important thing but the current siu sangs and fadans of TVB still need to learn many things from the veterans who was in the Golden time of TVB.

        The sour person is you who is taking this opportunity to attack someone you’ve always wanted to attack. By pointing your finger at me you’re disguising your real purpose. Dont be sour. This is Ruco’s year. He did very well in all 3 regions whether you like it or not.

        @isay For the crown, you say you keep track, I believe you but the crown is still in the head of Moses for 3 weeks. I dont track but there were other fans tracked. However, it doesnt matter. Moses didnt feel losing because he understood well TVB game. Moses didnt feel losing, nobody should feel on his behalf.

        LMAO~. You are acting like you dont take any chance to attack LOS, even in irrelevant topic. Dont tell me that this topic is so relevant to LOS. Now you say that other people bring irrelevant argument to topic. It is so ironic.

        I dont need to be sour. If I need to be sour, I would rather be sour to someone who have more successes in the world this year. To someone in TVB? I dont think Im that shallow. Plee.

        Btw, in my opinion, only when your idol can have the price of HK$100k per episode of drama, you can say of ’sour’. Less than that amount, nobody would feel sour at him because they can earn at least 5-8 times more than that for just one episode of drama.

        You are very sour at a TVB series, wow. Poor you.

        @isay Oh do you have proof? Show the pictures.

        I would like to quote myself:

        For Singapore and Malaysia, I have many doubts for the viewers’ choice especially in Singapore when Moses and Linda has the crown until the day before the last day. What we can say? TVB is always TVB. Therefore I accept the fact that COD won there and dont comment about that.

        And

        The crown picture is all in internet.

        If you can read English, you have seen that I mentioned that I accept the fact COD won. I have doubts for the fair game because I saw the pictures on internet with Moses and Linda with the crown for 3 weeks. If you can show me the picture that Moses and Linda didnt have crown for 3 weeks, I will accept that I was wrong.

        Why I have to lie that Moses and Linda have the crown? Why you keep accuse me and put words to my mouth? What is your purpose? Why dont you prove by pictures but only words? I said that I believe you when you say you track the result every week but the pictures I have seen said the otherwise. I also said that I dont care if it was rigged from the beginning. You accused me without a proof just because I have different opinion to you and I protect LOS which is the series you are attacking. It is your style to give personal attack when you cant convince others people with your opinion. It isnt the first time and I tried to avoid your personal attack. But you dont stop and continuously attack me. At the same time, you say I attack you. What is my attack? Can you show me any quote that I attack you? If you cant show pictures of the crown, I will have the right to doubt that you havent tracked weekly as you claimed. As a result, your claim will become a lie by your description.

        Your wrong acussion doesnt hurt me but it irks me. As a result, I make it clear for you to understand. It is merely a side story of which I really DONT CARE. Like I dont care that you think HKC is easy to fill up because I think you have no experience in HKC.

        And reply the other things as well. Dont switch the topic to run away from the fact that you are unreasonably attacking LOS.

        @alluka i really love yr style. You attacked my comment first by making sly remarks till you were forced to come out in the open. Then you continued yr attack bringing in irrelevant stuff and then turn the tables on me by saying i attacked you. The records speak for themselves who started the attacks. As for the crown issue you say you saw it all 3 weeks on moses. Can i also ask if you hv proof? Show it if you have. Otherwise it’s just talk. You may have seen the same picture and thought it was a different week. I have interest in starhub which you don’t. That makes me more alert to the preliminary results than someone who claims no interest. Who is more credible? The person with interest or a casual passerby who can now claim something out of the blue. Yes i saw the crown on moses only ONCE. And on linda only once too. You hv doubts on fair game only becos ruco won back to back. Again i xan just tell you dont be sour. And i didn’t say hkc is easy to fill. Again your style to put words in my mouth. I said that the difference in viewership is only one hkc worth which is not a big deal. If you don’t understand the difference in what I’m trying to say you can only blame your comprehension. What topic did I switch by the way? You switched the topic from ratings to this not me.

        Overall, you cant prove anything because all Come from your stubborn head. Noted that.

        P/S: you actually cant force me to do anything. I made clear of my comments Just because I think you cant understand. Dont put gold to your face and try to admit the fact.

        @alluka In short, you have no proof either until you show me the pics and i expect to see it for 3 DIFFERENT weeks not just one pic (that is, pics showing position as at week 1, week 2, week 3). Starhub will not be so stupid to post pic of Moses winning 3x in a row but not give the prize to him. And isn’t it strange that Linda also had the crown 3x in a row , same as Mo which would lead one to suspect that you’ve probably seen the same pic and thought it happened 3x. I remember quite clearly that first week for males was Moses and second week was Bosco . No way Moses won 3x.

        @isay & @alluka: I’m not defending isay…but I did see the crown once on Bosco and once on Moses. Not sure this crown thingy went on for how many weeks in the Starhub poll though. In fact, I was surprised to see the crown on Moses as I didn’t know he has so many supporters in Singapore….

        @isay & @alluka: Actually, I recalled that Starhub did not diligently indicate the crown on the Most Fave artist every week. I don’t remember seeing the crown on any artist during the first couple of weeks in fact….

        @lml1977 i searched my records and you’re right. Starhub only indicated the prelim results twice and thereafter stopped giving updates nearer the closing date.
