Bowie Lam: “I Do Not Get Along With Wong Hei!”

Over the course of his 20-year career, Bowie Lam (林保怡) collaborated with numerous fadans and siu sangs. Although the entertainment circle was rife with negative rumors, Bowie was able to maintain good relationships with both cast and crew. It was not until Bowie worked with Wong Hei (王喜) in 2006 that Bowie broke this tendency to get along well with everyone.

Bowie noted, “My motto in life has always been keeping the peace with other people. However, there will always be people who do not like you. Perhaps we can regard this as a test for how you handle situations and your emotional quotient (EQ) level. In 2006, Wong Hei and I hosted travel program, Homeland Beauty <江山美人> and discovered that we were incompatible in many matters. At the time, we had to film a segment to discuss crayfish. Wong Hei considered the harming of the crayfish to violate [the Buddhist belief which was against] killing animals. OKay! I accept it! I agree–I fully agree, but you can not control the rest of us. After this incident, I knew that I cannot work with him again. Later, I declined to continue hosting Homeland Beauty and finally, TVB asked Ha Yu (夏雨) to host the program.

Some time after the incident, a reporter asked me to take a photo with Ah Hei. I sensed that both of us got over the incident and there was nothing between us anymore. It was only taking a photo and not working together. When I see Ah Hei today, I will say, “Hello.”

No Rumors With Male Colleagues

“I am not here to generate gossip. I want to make the audience pay attention to the role. I just want to live in harmony. When I filmed until dawn with Michael Tao (陶大宇) and Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華), we raced our cars with each other. The slowest racer had to treat breakfast.  Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) even gave me a set of golf clubs in the past. I do not have negative rumors when I work with men.

“While filming War and Beauty <金枝慾孽> and Dance of Passion <火舞黃沙> and being surrounded by a female cast, I considered myself to be a supporting cast member.  As a supporting actor, I will consider whether my acting will steal the scene from the lead cast? In fact, I take good care of each of my co-stars, such as Maggie Shiu (邵美琪), Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Moses Chan (陳豪), and Kenny Wong (黃德斌); we maintain contact with each other after filming. Recently, I asked Maggie Shiu whether I can submit our group photo to be published in a newspaper. She said, ‘Of course, since it’s you asking!”

Received “Most Attentive Award” From Jonathan Chik

“I think it’s important to treat people with sincerity. You cannot find friends if you possess fake intentions. While filming War and Beauty one night, the artists went for a midnight snack together while the production crew had to set up the artificial snow for the upcoming scenes. Although I was busy memorizing my dialogue and could not help in setting up the artificial snow for the set, I treated the crew to a midnight snack. Afterwards, Producer Jonathan Chik (戚其義)represented the entire cast and crew in awarding me the ‘Super Attentive Award.’

“Of course, I have tried to treat people sincerely and was hurt as a result. Afterwards, saying ‘Hello’ is sufficient. At least you know who is sincere and who is insincere!”

Jayne: I like both Wong Hei and Bowie Lam. Since Bowie possesses such high EQ, I am somewhat surprised that he truly did not get along with Wong Hei. Perhaps Wong Hei comes across as too passionate about his own beliefs, to the point where he tries to convert people to adopt his ideas, which may come across as offensive and invasive.

      i’m not sure how buddhist and gays go along.. but assuming that Wong Hei is really into the religion, i dunno how he would be so into the religion and takes it as being gay =).. jus sayin 2

      on another note, wong hei mentioned before he will never get married. so maybe he is really into the religion and NOT gay? he just likes to become a monk or follow a monks life?

        Buddhism is about tolerance and compassion, the Dalai Lama himself is tolerant towards homosexuality. So there is no conflict.

    Bowie gives me an impression he gets along well with everyone, smart, and learned as well as with tact. Whatever rift there was with Wong Hei, it was purely work. Difference between Bowie and Wong Hei is Bowie treats work as work, whilst Wong Hei treats it like a personal mission.

      Jayne;

      “Wong Hei considered the procedure to violate [the Buddhist practice which prohibited] killing animals.”

      Sentence doesn’t make sense. Maybe

      Wong Hei considered killing crayfish as violating his Buddhist belief (prohibiting killing of another)

      or something like that

        Funn,
        Thanks for your suggestion; I’ll make the modification when I get the chance to do so. When I was writing the sentence, it did feel odd to me, but as it was getting late and my brain was tired, I left it as it was.

    I like both Bowie Lam and Wong Hei too, regardless of their rumoured sexual orientations. I must admit to liking Bowie more because:

    – he seems wise, knowing that it’s better to step out of an awkward position to avoid potential trouble than to pursue confrontation with a person and his stubborn views (declined further hosting in Homeland Beauty). To me, this is a act of high EQ behaviour – the article doesn’t state it, but I’m assuming that Bowie did try to reason with Wong Hei on the Homealnd set, but thought it more prudent to cut off rather than continue a working relationship with Wong Hei.

    – he seems humble, knowing that deferring to others is better than pushing himself to the forefront (during filming of War and Beauty)

    – he seems very thoughtful and caring (care he showed towards War and Beauty crew; the love and respect that he has for his parents – read this in another translation of the same long interview)

    Wong Hei seems to have a more headstrong, outspoken, explosive personality which goes against general Chinese culture (don’t speak your mind, keep face, etc) and therefore Chinese society less accepting of him, whilst Bowie seems a lot more reflective, quieter, grounded, and self-controlled in his behaviour.

    It’s been great watching him in River of Wine, and which low viewership ratings in HK do not do this series justice!

      @impmuse,

      Is Bowie really good in ROW? How’s his character like? I didn’t plan on watching this one b/c I don’t like the era (Qing/pre-modern, haha, not even sure), but if there were a reason I’ll watch it, it would be b/c of Bowie.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        Honestly speaking, not that good. He seems unfocused, that is because there isn’t much for his character to do per se. His character is subdued, very little action sort of person, and for me Bowie seems… rather not there at all. But it is worth watching, have patience and be prepared to be disappointed with the anti climax.

        I think he’s freakin hot too! Love the eyes, hmm … i wonder if Bowie was on Jayne’s list of sexy men…

        ROW – episode 12, pretty good. He’s not OTT like Pork chop kid or boring like Sunny Chan. Bowie and his co-star is quite cute, very convincing so far ..

      @impmuse,

      Well, if what you said about Wong Hei is true, then his personality can be either really likeable for some and really unacceptable for others. There are people that like people who are straight forward and outspoken instead of those people that act all fake but keep all of these feelings bottled up. I think it just depends on each person and who they get along with and who they don’t.

        I know that but when you are talking about the Chinese/asian culture, I actually find a lot of times people are just being fake or they just keep all of their feelings bottled up. I used to have a friend who was really really traditional and lived by those rules so she always made a good impression. However, with time, everyone could not stand her because she was just being too fake and tried to be the ideal person that the traditional asian culture liked. I really could not stand it so I stopped being friends with her.

        I find it funny how your friend was trying to play up the traditional rules to leave a good impression on people, but those very actions of hers are what destroyed her friendships with the people around her. Contradictory much?

        I see people as acting fake b/c they want to be accepted and well-liked by others. So if it isn’t working for the other people around her, why is she doing it?

        “I see people as acting fake b/c they want to be accepted and well-liked by others. So if it isn’t working for the other people around her, why is she doing it?’

        Because she didn’t know how to do it any other way. It’s not easy to break a habit that has been drill into you from young.

        It’s especially hard to break if the person do it because she wanted to be accepted. There is a great fear that if she speaks her mind, she would not be liked.

        I wonder if there is any friend of hers who is able or willing to convince her that she won’t be rejected if she speaks her mind.

        Speaking one’s mind is a double edge sword. Some people may like you for being frank and real, but, some people may dislike you for hurting their feelings or for your views that contradict theirs.

        People are strange. They claim to like people that is frank, truthful and be themselves. But, at the same time, they also like people to be nice, polite, easy-going, sweet-natured. They want others to be frank and truthful. But, when that person speak truthful words that are not exactly nice, they get upset and don’t like that person anymore.

Ok, let’s just admit this that we both have our own flawless, I admit that by calling Tavia’s nose as pinochio is “immature” but I still didn’t find that insulting because not only me,, there are hk citizens, maybe worldwide who has been calling her that eversicne she had those injections.. and what do you think you need to admit here? maybe oversensitive? I bet you’ve never come across to harsh ppl online that can really make your life upside down… therefore you think my comment towards Tavia’s nose is too harsh for u to accept.

        Maybe Bowie was wrong to admit to reporters that he doesn’t agree with Wong Hei. But Wong Hei could show that he is a better man by just a simple comment but instead he continuously went on a sarcastic/defensive rant in his weibo(compared to Steven Ma, would would be more humble and concise). He is proving exactly the negative personality Bowie said in the interview. No wonder his career is suffering and hardly any TVB (or ex) colleagues express their concern when he is leaving TVB.

        To me, Wong Hei behaviour is just like a 泼妇骂街 ‘put fu ma gai’.

Even though Wong Hei may be difficult to work with and all, the fact that he bought this old issue up doesn’t do him any good either. It sort of implies that he just cannot forget the past and continues to hold grudges which is a not a good thing at all.

    Just saw Bowie’s interview, thank you for his lesson. In the future, I will pay more attention and have already made it very clear to my manager to keep the following in mind when discussing job opportunities for me: “I absolutely do not want to be involved in any scenes or actions that involve hurting or killing animals or sea life, as I do not want to cause dissatisfaction or trouble to others because of my beliefs.” Finally, I hope that Bowie will accept my sincere apology.

        I am very surprised to hear of this inability to get along between Bowie and Wong Hei. Interpreting Bowie’s words about the crayfish incident with Wong Hei, Bowie perceives Wong Hei as imposing his own personal beliefs (against killing living animals) on other people. Bowie may respect other individuals’ beliefs, but he was likely offended by Wong Hei imposing his principles upon other people.

        Perhaps Bowie did not try to tell Wong Hei because he would get defensive (as indicated by Wong Hei’s current response). Also, when we tell other people about our feelings to them, there is a measure of unspoken expectation that the people either listen to our feelings respectfully or perhaps think about the issue subjectively. Perhaps Bowie did not feel that Wong Hei would respond positively and he was correct.

        I agree it serves no good, especially not for Wong Hei, who has been regarded as a “pariah” by many TVB managers and former co-workers already.

        I can only speculate that Bowie chose to elaborate on the nature of his incompatibility with Wong Hei because he was prompted by the Oriental Daily paper to do so, perhaps to clarify rumors from years ago that they did not get along on the set of “Homeland Beauty” in 2006.

        Also, now that Wong Hei and Bowie’s TVB management contracts have officially terminated, perhaps Bowie felt it was not as sensitive to elaborate on the incident. Bowie has stated very explicitly that he will not collaborate with Wong Hei again. Thus Bowie did not feel the room to “dress up” the situation more positively and describe his perception of the situation: that Wong Hei was not a team player and tried to impose his personal principles and beliefs upon others, even to the point of likely trying to change the crayfish scene to avoiding killing of sea life.

        I like both Wong Hei and Bowie, so I am trying to seeing both their sides. Perhaps it is true that we will come across people where there is mutual incompatibility and ill-feeling. It is okay, as long as we deal with it tactfully.

        “Do you think Bowie has dealt with it tactfully? His disclosure was an unexpected slap to Wong Hei.”

        I don’t think either Bowie or Wong Hei dealt with the situation tactfully. Although Bowie’s words did not carry true animosity, Bowie’s high EQ personality leads me to believe that he must have been able to predict the public perception towards Wong Hei through the revealing of the crayfish incident. Also Wong Hei likely behaved defensively according to Bowie’s expectation. Bowie is a careful, attentive man and likely a good planner, which is why it is puzzling why he chose to air the “dirty laundry.”

        This leads me to believe that Bowie truly does not like Wong Hei at all, in order to discuss his inability to get along with him so publicly.

        Wong Hei did not deal with the situation tactfully either through his Weibo reply. Given his personality and need to “champion” his personal beliefs, his defensive response is understandable, but nevertheless not very tactful.

        I think Jayne is quite right about the timing. Both of them are out of TVB now so the issue between them is no longer attached to TVB. If they’re still TVB colleagues I think someone with Bowie’s EQ won’t answer whatever being asked by reporter as frank and untactful as this.

        @Jayne: Actually, I have a high opinion of Bowie as a person so his public airing of “dirty laundry” truly surprised and yeah disappointed me, because he knew how his words would hurt another person but he did it anyway. As for WH, though respectful of his loyalty, I thought his social skills leave much to desire. He is a bit too dogmatic imo.

        Agree with you wholeheartedly. I think many TVB fans who like Bowie will also like Wong Hei, given their detailed onscreen performances and ability to make their characters come alive. Both are dedicated to their craft and excellent actors.

        I hope this recent exchange of words between Bowie and Wong Hei will not make fans who like both of them feel that they should choose between the two. Not necessary lah. 🙂

        Actually, I felt the same way when I read the news article. I was very surprised that Bowie explained why he didn’t get along with Wong Hei. Surely, a person with such high EQ as Bowie would know how his words would be interpreted by the public, that the incident would add to the “difficult attitude” that Wong Hei exudes.

        Wong Hei’s sarcastic reply of course will fan the flames. When Kidd reposted Wong Hei’s Weibo “apology to Bowie,” I was very surprised to read it. As the message carried a humbleness that was not very characteristic of Wong Hei.

        From Wong Hei’s perspective, I understand why he felt the necessity to defend himself, as allegedly Bowie never confronted Wong Hei about the crayfish incident and their other conflicts while filming “Homeland Beauty.” I’m sure there were other conflicts, otherwise Bowie and Wong Hei would not carry on this anti-feeling for each other after so many years.

I hope someone will translate the replies and all so can read for myself. Right now, I am severely disappointed with Wong hei’s immature way of dealing with this situation. There is a fine line between passionate and being an idiot. Now one wonders why his career is down the drain and he is a pariah. A word of advice to Wong Hei; until and unless you Stephen Chow, don’t dream of being a perfectionist or even sarcastic.

    “I do not have negative rumors when I work with men.”

    He rarely has negative rumours when working with women, either. He seems to have a very high EQ and just genuinely easy to get along with. I remember reading articles before about how attentive he is. I think he’s like Evergreen Mak in that when they win awards, there are loud cheers from their colleagues who seem genuinely happy for them.

    I don’t think Wong Hei intends to be difficult and sometimes he may not even realise it; I think if someone rationally points out his missteps (as Bowie has done) he is willing to accept and apologise. He strikes me as a pedant and an exacting person. It must be frustrating for him that others are not perfectionists and at the same time it can be frustrating for others if he starts to be pedantic.

    Between Bowie and WH, I’d take WH’s side anytime. At least you can trust what WH says. The recent contract issues that Bowie is having with TVB just made me feel that he’s not as sincere and genuine as he makes himself out to be. Virginia Lok even hinted that he was the one who tipped off reporters when he met her to discuss about the filming of War and Beauty 2. Also, he often flatters himself as one of those who do not curry favor or use renewal of contract in exchange for awards. Well, didn’t he himself signed a management contract with TVB the year he won the Best Actor Award?

      “Not that Wong Hei is bad, but I do sense he is a perfectionist and extremely stubborn, which can sometimes rub people the wrong way. Classic ‘I have high expectations of myself and therefore expect the same of others’ type.”

      I agree that Wong Hei has very strong principles and is not afraid to speak up. Perhaps he even lacks a bit tactfulness or doesn’t care to show it towards people he does not respect. Wong Hei comes across as being very passionate about his beliefs and if someone should strongly challenge those beliefs, he will become very defensive. If Wong Hei believes his actions for for the greater good, such as against the killing of animal life, he may even use all methods to try to change the situation.

      Wong Hei is not the type to quietly sit on the sideline and witness something he finds is “wrong” or against his personal sense of justice. Such as how Stephen Chan’s former supporters turned against Mr. Chan amidst his temporary job suspension amidst the corruption scandal. I admire Wong Hei in this sense and overall agree with his values of friendship, loyalty, kindness to all living forms of life, etc.

      Overall, his guiding principles stem from good causes, however his approach may come as across too acidic, confrontational, imposing, and possibly intruding on many people’s comfort zones. In this sense, Wong Hei may be too ready to “enter a battle” to champion his personal beliefs and doesn’t seem to want to back down easily. It’s great if you see eye-to-eye with him, but possibly he can also make you feel agitated should you run into conflicts with him.

        I also sense that Wong Hei is too defensive and believes in his beliefs too strongly. Collaborating with someone like him is indeed difficult although his principles stem from good causes, but not everyone around him may be as passionate about it as him. He needs to see outside of the box sometimes.

        According to Wong Hei’s weibo. At that time, he didn’t want to be present during the killing of a crayfish. He said the director was understand and allow him to be absent. He also said Bowie volunteered to do that segment for him. But, turned out in truth, Bowie was not happy about it.

        Wong Hei’s problem with Bowie is why he didn’t sound out at that time and didn’t sound out during their subsequent collaboration (GOL and GOL promotion), but, now sound out at an interview.

        Chriselle,
        “In your opinion, when is it okay to speak about one’s beliefs and when is it not?”

        I was a bit busy last night and didn’t get a chance to reply to your question. Anyhow, good communication is about knowing the intent of the message that you want to get across and the audience you are speaking to, such as anticipating how your audience will react by knowing a bit about their backgrounds and personalities. This way, you can structure your communication smartly to ensure your message is received more positively. If the cause you are championing for is of utmost importance to you, then be prepared to know what protests your audience may raise and be able to counter the resistance in a persuasive, non-offensive manner. Tactfulness and skill in conversations often help us achieve better results.

        When people are unable to counter differences in opinion through persuasive and logical methods, they often turn emotional. However, unwilling to compromise their beliefs, they become angry and instead of debating the issues involved, the argument instead turns personal and covers other tangent bases.

        There are certainly topics such as religion, right to life/ abortion, politics, that are extremely difficult for people to persuade others. It really depends on how important you feel the necessity is in championing your cause. If your audience consists of the majority who are against your personal beliefs, you may not have to necessarily speak defensively, but at least be persuasive and have a good logical development in ideas prepared to defend your view.

        Different situations warrant different responses in when it is appropriate to speak up and drop the issue, perhaps for the time being, but not necessarily forever depending upon who you are trying to convince and the issue at hand.

        Personal beliefs serve as our guide in life, but that doesn’t mean we should be so self-centered that we have to absolutely convince others or cannot live with the differences in opinion. We cannot change the world, but neither can you go to battle with everyone you come across who possesses a difference in viewpoints.

        If conflicts in personal beliefs develop between people whom you interact with on an ongoing basis, such as family, friends, and co-workers, then a gracious exit may be necessary. Sometimes persuasive argument is best done in stages and you cannot change people’s minds in one day, but slowly and with patience, perhaps your influence upon their thinking will still have a measurable effect.

        Communication and exchange in different perspectives help us see things beyond our own tendencies, which are shaped by our past. Since those beliefs will evolve over time anyway, perhaps everyone should be more tolerant to listen to other opinions instead of being so certain of themselves.

      I understand WH’s sarcasm and defensiveness towards Bowie’s remark. IMO, Bowie’s comment is uncalled for because it brought unnecessary even damaging repercussions for a fellow ex-colleague. WH was totally blindsided by a 5 year old incident that he thought was over and done with and settled. He had no idea that Bowie still carried a grudge over that conflict. WH can’t understand why Bowie did not clear the air with him given the many opportunities of their collaborations in recent years, why did Bowie choose this method to let him as well as the whole world that he could not work with WH knowing very well the repercussion of his comment on WH.

      I would be pretty mad too if I were in WH’s shoes. I don’t know how I would react if someone that I thought had a pretty ok relationship with would go behind my back and post on fb that I was a very ‘difficult’ person to work with.

        I disagree. I lost my respect for Wong Hei. He acted like an impestous child. Bowie was merely stating facts. He has a right to disclose a fact. And it is a fact that Wong Hei had issues with killing crayfish, Bowie has issue with Wong Hei having issue, and so Bowie did the right thing by leaving the show. He stated facts, he stuck to facts and it is all nothing but facts. He in fact applauded Wong Hei for his principle but chastised him a bit for his stubborness that burdened the entire production. If he had issues, he shouldn’t be in that program.

        And for Bowie to be in a Japanese drama, lead or no lead, is an achievement. Because for one, Japanese don’t care about HK entertainment, they care more for k drama and k pop so frankly I find this a great achievement. More so because his acting style is different. So we now have Chinese, Koreans and Japanese in one drama. 3 styles of acting. Very interesting,.

        Thanks Anya. I’ve also googled for the drama and I can hardly find Bowie’s name listed, but why is the article that I posted earlier mentioned that he’s a male lead?

        Hrmm but male lead or not isn’t the most important for someone like Bowie, I guess it’s the character and opportunity itself that’s valuable 🙂

        @ Masaharu: You’re welcome…
        I don’t know why but I doubt his part would be big. At first it was some average Chinese actor for the part, then got replaced by Bowie

        Anya, I’ve found more news after more googling and Bowie is listed as one of the leads, and is representing the China part of collaborations. Perhaps he “is” one of the leads after all 😀

        went to the strangers 6’s website and took a look, bowie’s name is behind Karasawa toshiaki and korean’s oh jiho and other news reports stated karasawa toshiaki is the very main one.
        so bowie is not the main at all.
        I guess this report exaggerate his role in the drama.

    I love Bowie in anything. He’s great.

    Wong Hei come across as someone who thinks that people who dont agree with him or his ways are wrong. If his EQ is higher, he might be able to get away with it. Unfortunately it’s causing him his career.

      Is it a Malay word, “gelek”? There is a Malay word that sounds like that, right, Funn?

      His full Buddhist name is Gelek Chodhar

      What does the fact that they are gay have anything to do with it?

    Nothing, absolutely, if I may say so. The point is that this incident re the crayfish happened some time ago and Bowie himself said that he “accepted” it. Maybe he did not like the way how Wong Hei expressed himself because he continued to say, “I agree fully but you cannot control us.” He sounded as if he was fed-up with Wong Hei. However, whatever it was, the subject should not have been brought up for no rhyme or reason. Bowie whould just have let bygones be bygones and let the whole matter rest. In that respect I don’t think he was being fair to Wong Hei.
