Edwin Siu Chooses Career Over Gigi Ho?
Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) and TVB Entertainment News anchor, Gigi Ho (何傲芝), have been rumored to be dating for the past three years. The couple was photographed shopping together on various occasions, and on October 5, Gigi was seen with Edwin, who attracted media attention after his car lightly collided with a public light bus. The car accident indirectly exposed their underground relationship to the public, but despite the exposure, the pair continued to deny their relationship.
An insider spilled to Sudden Weekly that Edwin and Gigi had indeed been dating for quite some time already, but the pair decided to not take their relationship public in order to protect Edwin’s rising career. However, it has been recently reported that Edwin decided to break up with Gigi so he can place all of his efforts toward his career, and be in full preparation mode to win the Most Improved Male Artiste award.
Gigi is Too Clingy?
According to the insider, Edwin and Gigi met at the wedding of their mutual friend, Heidi Chu (朱凱婷) two years ago. Gigi was immediately attracted to Edwin. She initiated a conversation with him and managed to get his phone number that same night.
The insider revealed, “Gigi was very good at coming up with excuses to help Edwin fix his phone. They started to meet frequently, and they grew closer. But not a lot of Edwin’s friends like her. They think she is too clingy and overprotective of Edwin. Afterwards, Edwin began accepting more and more job offers, and cast in large roles in dramas. He also travels to mainland China a lot for stage performances, and it has been really hard for him to find the time to spend with Gigi. I used to always see Gigi with Edwin, but recently, I have only seen Edwin alone. Gigi is nowhere in sight.”
TVB Executives Break Up the Relationship
Edwin joined TVB in 2008. Due to his hardworking attitude and perseverance, Edwin quickly became a favorite among TVB executives. After his relationship with Gigi was exposed, TVB executives reportedly forced Edwin to break up with Gigi for the sake of his career.
The insider claimed, “There are very few siu sangs at TVB nowadays. After Raymond Lam (林峯), Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), and Moses Chan (陳豪), Edwin has the best qualifications to be the next big thing. TVB executives have been paving the road for Edwin to win Most Improved. Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍) gave him opportunities to sing theme songs. Virginia Lok (樂易玲) takes very good care of him, and always praises him to others about how hardworking he is. Edwin has been doing great this year. He has a portrayed a variety of different characters and his resume is very diversified.”
Indeed, Edwin has proved his ability of being able to tackle a variety of different roles this year. In Daddy Good Deeds <當旺爸爸>, Edwin portrayed the simple-minded but extremely talented “Ah Yap.” In Gloves Come Off <拳王>, Edwin portrayed the depressive “Edward.” In The Last Steep Ascent <天梯>, he was the drama’s main villain, “Ho Sai Ho.” In the soon-to-broadcast anniversary drama The Confidant<大太監>, Edwin will portray the young Eunuch Ling, an anti-hero.
Edwin’s schedule is packed until next June. The actor is currently filming Big Wheel <巨輪>, starring alongside Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣). Next February, Edwin will begin preparing for Rosy Business 3 <巾幗梟雄之諜血雌雄> with Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Myolie Wu (蕭正楠), which is one of the most highly anticipated dramas of 2013. Edwin is currently locked on to record the theme song of Detective Columbo <神探哥倫布> as well.
Asked about his feelings towards winning Most Improved, Edwin said, “I am keeping an ordinary mind. My mom and the fans that have been supporting me for the past 10 years are probably more nervous than I am!” When speaking about Catherine Tsang and Virginia Lok’s full support for Edwin to win the award, Edwin humbly said, “I am really thankful to them! Catherine Jeh has given me a lot of opportunities. Being a favorite of hers is better than winning any award. Four years ago, it was Miss Lok who asked me to sign with TVB. She knows that I am the breadwinner of the family, so she gave me a really good offer.”
Edwin: “Career Comes First”
Edwin explained, “I always felt that my career should come first. I think that as a man, we should have a stable career if we want to have a sense of security. When I was in Beijing, I had a girlfriend, but I did not have a stable career. I did not like that feeling.”
Asked if Edwin had already broken up with Gigi, Edwin said, “We are only good friends. She helps me a lot, and we have things to talk about.”

I also agree that Edwin Siu should treasure the current opportunities to pursue his career. Once he has a good career, he can have tons of girlfriends! He has already wasted over 10 years in the entertainment industry, and he is not that young now.
He is not young ..heading 36.good luck to his career
You mean tons of plastic dolls only after his fame & money? Love conceived when you are poor is more likely to be genuine and lasting.
You can say the girl saw his hidden potential ala investing in any assets. It’s not nice being forced to close out your position before it really takes off, LOL.
And when was he considered as the next big thing anyway?
Totally agree with you. Take a look at yan kuan, know his gf when nobody cares or knows about him, and that’s why he treasures her like a gold mine. If by having a gf means you don’t have a large fan base, and need that single status for success, you are a bit shallow and possibly know you are not that great in the entertainment industry.
Fame/popularity will come and go. A partner is (hopefully) for life, so grab hold of him/her if you chance upon the one.
I hope Edwin can find the right balance and not just prioritise his work.
TVB is def promoting him as the next siu sang. I’m sure he’ll treasure this opportunity.
Edwin Siu is a good looking guy and his acting is more than adequate. Glad to see him with big promotions from TVB.
A promising young man with good looks, good voice, good acting skills. I like him though I’m rather disappointed that he could just give up his girl because of his ambition for better prospects. Seems a little heartless to me.
Is it just me or does Edwin has a bit of the Ruco’s villain quality? he has a cute face but something about him gives off the villain vibe. Not saying he’s a bad person, just saying he’s more suited in villain roles.
Yes, I agree. I always think he’s up to no good in any role of his, lol…but he can also be cutesy in his portrayal. They should’ve mentioned him in his role in Forensic Heroes 3 as well. I like him most there, actually.
Look at Raymond Wong. He has a wife and a child and bright career. why not be like him?
It is okay if Edwin Siu just has one girlfriend and keeps her in a low profile (if she loves him, she wouldn’t mind). Do not always talk about his love affairs and love life until his acting career is more established. However, he needs to concentrate in upgrading her acting and singing skills in order to pursue a successful career.
Agree that he acted well as a villain. Perhaps people got used to his villainous roles in the last two years.
Good luck, Edwin. Never behave like Ron Ng for sure.
i dont think its purely career, he is a grown man, he just grew apart from her esp if she as clingy as they claimed.
if anything, those execs are the heartless ones, while they run home to their spouse and family, actors can’t do the same? wow.
anyway hope edwin finds his true love(i think he match with christine kuo) once he has the career he wants then.
I think he is very ordinary looking,don’t see him as siu sang
Edwin def will be the next siu sang.
It is kind of sad that he choose career over the girl. Why can’t he try to balance it.
