Charmaine Sheh and Moses Chan at “4 in Love” Costume Fitting
Producer Jonathan Chik’s (戚其義) new TVB series, 4 in Love (temporary title) held its costume fitting yesterday. Cast members, Moses Chan (陳豪), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Kenny Wong (黃德斌), King Kong (金剛), Rachel Kan (簡慕華), and Elvina Kong (江欣燕) introduced their characters in the series before the press.
Wearing a wig, Charmaine indicated that she will portray an international star in 4 in Love and share a love relationship with Moses, who portrays an employee at a Mongkok electronics store. In the series, Charmaine’s character wanted to retire from acting. However, her manager continued to accept filming projects for her in order to fulfill her own dreams. Charmaine’s character resisted because she ultimately wished to pursue a simple love relationship.
No Boundaries in Love
When asked whether the love relationship portrayed in 4 in Love will occur in reality, Charmaine said that there were no boundaries drawn over careers for a couple in love. Love was love. Did Charmaine decide to film another TVB series due to the poor ratings of My Sister of Eternal Flower <花花世界花家姐> and hope to secure the title of TVB Best Actress? Charmaine said she did not think too much. However, she often cooperated with the cast and crew combination, especially Producer Jonathan Chik. In the past, Charmaine participated in Jonathan’s heavy dramas, while 4 in Love will be her first comedy working with him. In addition, the content was interesting.
When asked why Charmaine was not filming in China, she noted that the weather was too hot in China. Charmaine also indicated that her acceptance of the role was not related to awards. “It’s unclear whether this series will even be broadcast in Hong Kong this year.” Charmaine noted that she was not particular about fame and fortune.
Charmaine Sheh Congratulated Kevin Cheng for Ghetto Justice’s Success
Charmaine frankly stated that she watched [rumored ex-boyfriend] Kevin Cheng’s (鄭嘉穎) Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭>. When asked whether she watched Kevin’s butt revealing scene in the first episode, Charmaine said surprisingly, “Really? So explosive? I did not watch the first episode and missed the scene.” (Will Charmaine re-watch Kevin’s butt-revealing scene online?) “There’s no need to. I do not have such an intensive interest.” Regarding Ghetto Justice’s ratings achieving 30 points, Charmaine said simply, “That’s great. Congratulations, congratulations!” Next week, TVB will organize a sales presentation and will schedule the company’s rumored couples to attend. Charmaine said,”Excuse me, I will not be able to attend. I have to work on that day.”
Moses Chan Unafraid of Rumors with Charmaine Sheh
At the costume fitting, Moses Chan indicated that he never had a “MK” look in his past series. He noted that the series explored modern love relationships and that his relationship with Charmaine’s character was difficult to be linked together in real life.
Asked whether Moses will share intimate scenes with Charmaine, he revealed that 4 in Love will center around incidents and rumors that occurred in the entertainment industry instead. As an international star, Charmaine’s character will use Moses’ character for a publicity stunt. (Was Moses’ romantic rumors fake in real life?) Moses laughed and did not answer. (Was Moses concerned about rumors with Charmaine during filming?) Indicating that he had known Charmaine for many years, Moses was happy to collaborate together again and was unafraid of rumors.
Reporters asked whether Moses’ rumored girlfriend, Aimee Chan (陳茵媺), will visit the filming location? “There’s nothing going on. I have worked with Charmaine on numerous occasions in the past.” (She can trust you?) “I hope so.” When asked whether Aimee preferred his casual or gentleman look, Moses chose to laugh and not respond. Due to Kevin Cheng’s butt-revealing scene in Ghetto Justice securing ratings of 30 points, reporters asked whether Moses will use the same method to boost ratings. Moses indicated he will not and will aptly follow the script’s needs.
King Kong Cracks Dirty Joke
Aside from Moses and Charmaine’s romance in 4 in Love, the other most glaring pairing was between King Kong and Rachel Kan, who portrays a lawyer in the series. At the costume fitting, Rachel wore a suit, however a minor movement caused her to reveal her cleavage line. With his non-fluent Cantonese, King Kong wore a wig for his role. Portraying a member of the financial elite, King Kong noted he will have many bed scenes and slipped a dirty joke at the press conference, causing everyone to burst out laughing.
4 in Love is produced by Jonathan Chik. Additional cast members include Queenie Chu (朱慧敏), Wai Ka Hung (韋家雄), Janet Chow (周家蔚), Tang Chi Fung (鄧梓鋒), Lau Dan (劉丹), Tracy Ip (葉翠翠), Mary Hon (韓馬利), Cheung Kwok Keung (張國強), Sin Ho Ying (冼灝英), and others.
Jayne: Surprised to see Charmaine filming another TVB series so soon. I thought she would be filming a television adaptation of “If You Are the One” in China.
4 in Love seems to explore the valuations of money, class, and possibly intellectual differences in modern love, where the woman may be in a superior status than the man. We touched upon this discussion fleetingly when marriage rumors between Shirley Yeung and Gregory Lee arose and earnings capability was the topic of discussion.
Money and class are boundaries drawn by society, which are difficult to overcome in love relationships. Intellectual differences are inherent inside and frankly, I think it is very non-fulfilling to have a serious relationship with someone who has a markedly intellectual gap.
