TVB artists Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Shirley Yeung (楊思琦), and Ron Ng (吳卓羲) appeared at an inauguration event hosted by the Grateful Heart Charity Foundation. The actors posed for photos before the ceremony and some took the opportunity to address recent rumors. Sheren Tang, who has been under fire for speaking out against Beauty at War’s <金枝慾孽貳> production team, declined press interviews during the evening. Her Beauty costar Christine Kuo was however happy to answer questions. The 29-year-old spoke about her weight loss efforts and once again denied any involvement with rumored flame Aaron Kwok (郭富城).

Christine was earlier given the nickname “Fat Kuo” due to her chubby appearance onscreen. The hurtful title motivated Christine to lose weight, and the actress claimed to have lost 9 pounds so far. When asked about her weight loss progress, Christine shared that she has been closely watching what she eats, and is trying out different methods such as doing yoga, going to the gym, and taking Chinese medicine to help her reach her fitness goals.

Recently some speculated that Aaron Kwok may have rented a luxury unit on Christine’s behalf. Christine admitted to apartment-hunting but denied Aaron’s involvement. “I haven’t decided where I will rent… He and I are not involved, why would he sponsor me?”

Ron Ng, who was recently rumored with Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> co-star Kelly Fu (傅嘉莉), quickly denied the relationship. Regarding Kelly’s insistence that she and Ron are really good friends, Ron said, “Perhaps she is not very good at expressing herself.” Reporters suggested that Kelly may have a one-sided crush, Ron quipped, “I am not lucky enough!” He added that he is focusing on his career and has no desire to start dating again.

    I don’t understand why people are attacking her because she’s a bit chubby. It’s not like she’s unhealthily overweight AND I still think she looks gorgeous.

    People are so critical of her weight when in reality, we’re surrounded with people of her size and BIGGER and we don’t say anything.

      She’s honestly fine the way she is.
      She shouldn’t lose too much weight or she may look anorexic-sick.

      “and taking Chinese medicine”

      Yikes!! Hopefully, nothing with harmful side effects. You’re beautiful “Just The Way You Are”, Christine Kuo. No need to change. “Natural” and “healthy” is best.

    Charlene Choi from Twins was called ‘the fat one’ in a newspaper article and Charlene is thin as a chopstick, so I can see why HK people will think Christine is overweight. There’s an obsession with skin and bones in HK and if Christine wants to be in this industry, she’ll either have to lose weight or put up with these comments. It sucks and it’s wrong and it’s mentally and emotionally abusive, but hey, it’s Hong Kong and the entertainment industry in HK has never been known to be kind to ‘fat’ actors/actresses.

        Beyonce is not skin and bones, neither is Aishwarya Rai, Jennifer Hudson, Bar Refaeli, Jessica Chastain, etc. Need I go on? Don’t mistake thin, fit, healthy, curvy, etc. for skin and bones. They don’t get ridiculed by the media for being ‘fat’. @msxie: you hit the nail on the head when you said ‘hk people and media have the sensitivity of a slug.’

      As in Charlene is fatter than Gillian? I thought Gillian was always “the fat one” since her weight tends to fluctuate. She’s been chubby at some periods, although still far from fat.

      Hong Kong people are just very against women with any sort of body. Even thin women with larger breasts will be ridiculed.

    She is hardly chubby. She is voluptous, a concept HK can never understand with their over idolising if lollipop heads and pre pubescent boys bodies.

      This concept isn’t just happening in HK. It’s happening everywhere though

      And voluptuous as in suggesting sensual pleasure by fullness and beauty of form ?

      I agree that HK people don’t understand the beauty of curves over stick-figures. I don’t like Christine’s acting, but I do think she’s a very pretty person–both in face and body.

      I think voluptuous is a concept Oriental countries an Singapore and Malaysia cannot understand. I’m a S in Australia/ UK sizing but was dumbfounded when I have to get size L or XL when I shop in local fashion stores in these countries. Singapore and HK most likely have the highest number of slimming studios per capita. Their obsession with having stick thin, lollipop figures is sickening in my view.

        That’s because Asians are generally smaller sized. Smaller doesn’t mean stick thin though.

        Not everyone goes on diet like a lunatic to be slim. Some people, especially Asians in the countries you quoted possess such genes. My friends and I eat a lot yet we could hardly put on weight so what can we do, really? Our metabolism rate is higher, that’s all.

    body image is too anal in asia. i tot they look up to western culture. western culture accepts chubby, the irony of cultures. accept individuals as they are~ they are happy the way they are, not like u’re living in for their life.

    She’s fine the way she is. I’d call her curvy and healthy looking. I think its better to have a natural face shape than to have plastic surgery or inject their faces with Botox every 6 months.

        Same thing with plastic surgery, breaking the bones and all.. re-attaching. Sounds extremely painful.

        I know right! I’ve seen some ads in magazines demonstrating where people usually get Botox. So it’s not just one injection, but multiple injections in different areas.

        I had braces when I was younger and it was so painful I couldn’t eat for days. So I can only imagine how painful breaking bones is. *shivers*

    Can she really be considered voluptuous? Even by Western standards, she seems a little more on the slim/normal side.

    I like her the way she is. A shame she’s succumbing to the pressure.

    Because of the over-emphasis on slimness in HK, I always feel self-conscious when I go there. I can understand the stress Christine goes through since she is always in the public eye.

    According to Hong Kong standards, Christine Kuo definitely looks chubbier than other young and slim TVB actresses, such as Myolie Wu, Fala Chen, Linda Chung, Tavia Yeung and Kate Tsui. Christine does not have a chubby face, but her arms, thighs and legs are a bit chubby when compared to the above listed actresses.

    Christine Kuo only looks pretty in modern drama series, and not in ancient ones. She did not look pretty at all in “Beauty at War”. She was very bland and flat-faced in her maid costumes.

      “Myolie Wu, Fala Chen, Linda Chung, Tavia Yeung and Kate Tsui. ”

      The problem is not Christine is chubby or chubbier but the artistes named are all very very skinny in real life. And some not very healthy skinny. I am sure Christine in person must looks normal and sexy.

      She is not chubby. She is normal. Geez! I am sure even someone like Scarlet Johansen gets called chubby.

        Funn,
        even myolie, and kate are sometimes referred to as fat in the online community, and linda as big size.
        One comment i usually see about myolie when people meet her, is how skinny she is, and they think shes fat or at least fat-faced on screen.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        Insanity!! They’re like so so so thin! At least Myolie looks robust but still slim robust. She is fat? What HK wants? ZERO fat?

    • sandcherry replied:

      It is just simple. If Christine Kuo wants to compete with other top lead TVB actresses in filming drama series, she has to keep herself slim.

      If she just cares about making good money or having rumours with other famous actors, she can do whatever she wants!

    The truth is – which girl doesn’t want to be slim (not stick thin)? Which girl doesn’t want to have a slender body? Which girl doesn’t want to look good in a body-hugging dress?

      The sad truth – shes already slim. But theres consistent pressure on her to be stick thin. Those actresses who look slim on tv, are stick thin.

        And when they look slim on television, they are EXTREMELY ill thin in reality…not just stick thin, but deathly-thin D;

        While certain female artists’ may be naturally very slim, I think others who appear to be already very slim and still think of losing weight or their fear of gaining weight really impacts and sets the standards for culture and society. They should realise that they are not only famous celebrities, but children also may look up to them as role models…not just an issue in HK, it scares me to know that children as young as 8 years old in Western countries already have fear of ‘gaining weight’ and are conscious about diets. Makes me think whether the media and celebrities plays a large role in such scary stats and figures.

      • Clementine replied:

        Sometimes I wonder..if it because in general, HK women are naturally very thin and ‘dont have a body’ so to speak, hence why hk tabloids or HK citizens/netizens like to bully those who are curvy than the normal, average looking woman within that particular culture.

        Again, seems like what appears ‘different’ from the rest of the crowd is shunned upon.

    She definitely not fat at all but has gained a lot of weight. Look at 2009 MCI compared to now. You’ll see a significant difference. Anyways, part of me thinks she’s just fishing for a weight loss contract-they pay BIG money ( All the fadans do it-Myolie, Linda, Charmaine, Kate etc etc). We all know she’s raking in big money doing endorsements and has said she’s eager for more, so this could be her big ticket meal.

      If someone gives may chan (?) a slimming endorsement, that may actually not be false advertising.

        these hk weight loss companies don’t care-all they care about is money money money. heck, even i recalled one woman died from these slimming companies and they denied any wrongdoing. flip through any hk magazines, every 3rd page is some weight loss advertisement with an overly airbrushed celeb in a tacky “S” shape pose.

    I say Christine should NOT lose the weight- she is fine the way she is. If she conforms to what HK tabloids have to say in cricising her about her looks, than what does that imply about HK tabloids claims? That they are right, and she should change..

    Though of course hearing harsh remarks and comments from tabloids and being nicknamed is quite damaging to confidence and hurtful to feelings,
    If she is changing herself in order to be or feel more accepted, then that is very wrong… one day she may be an angel in HK tabloids eyes, then they can do a 360 turn on another day and attack her like their is no tomorrow.

    I really hope this has nothing to do with having to conform to any ‘standards’. If so, it would be really sad.

    I’d rather her remain the way she is and I was really secretly hoping for the media to accept her as she is and embrace her individuality. She provided a glimmer of hope but it looks like now she may soon become part of that tvb homegeneous look as well.

        Agreed, it is definitely better to be more health conscious.

        I’m afraid I failed to get my point across. I was trying to demonstrate (via Fei-Fei/Lydia) that “skin & bones” is not the only path to success in the Asian entertainment industry.

        It may be better for Christine Kuo to focus more on improving her Chinese/Cantonese than her weight.

    I feel bad for Christine. Just because she has a stronger facial structure (strong jaw line, chubbier face, etc.) it doesn’t mean they’re not skinny. This comment goes for Bernice Liu.
