Netizens were caught quite off guard when Elaine Yiu (姚子羚) was photographed smoking a cigarette with costar Matt Yeung (揚明) while on a filming break in Malaysia.

The 32-year-old costars are currently shooting for TVB’s romantic drama Outbound Love <單戀雙城> at various tourist locations in Malaysia. The drama also stars Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Aimee Chan (陳茵媺), Lin Xiawei (林夏薇), Tony Hung (洪永城), and Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠).

As reported by Hong Kong tabloid magazine Oriental Sunday, both Elaine and Matt have risen in popularity among  netizens in recent months, thanks to their critically successful performances in TVB dramas, Bottled Passion <我的如意狼君> and Master of Play <心戰>, respectfully. Elaine and Matt will also be starring in the upcoming TVB drama Slow Boat Home <情越海岸線>, which is slated to premiere on May 13.

Known for her pure, elegant, and sweet image onscreen, Elaine has been added to TVB’s growing pantheon of beautiful “goddesses” by netizens. When the photos of Elaine smoking were published, they reportedly “disappointed” her fans, as many expected Elaine to be different from a “typical Hong Kong girl.”

Reports also alleged that Elaine displayed “diva behavior” when a crew member approached her to give her an identification card. Matt, who was sitting next to Elaine, politely acknowledged the crew member, while Elaine responded nonchalantly.

Nonetheless, the tabloid magazine praised the refined Elaine for being “the most beautiful [Outbound Love] actress”, outshining main female leads Aimee and Xiawei.

In related news, Tony Hung, who joined TVB in 2012, reportedly did not get along very well with the rest of the Outbound Love cast. Tabloid reporters observed that Tony preferred sitting by himself and playing with his phone during breaks.

      What’s so surprising? Probably most of them smoke to keep the weight off.

      Why is this so shocking? They’re free to do what they want – just because Elaine portrays elegant, feminine characters ON SCREEN doesn’t mean that she has to stay in character in REAL life. People be cray.

        Totally agree. HK fans are loonies. They get so obsessive, as if they know these actors personally.

      so she’s a woman smoker just like charmaine sheh. quite surprising because her circle of friends such as myolie and mandy wong have healthy image and free from smoking. so assumes that she’s clean too but guess not 🙁

        Daisy,

        More TVB actors are photographed smoking as opposed to the female artists.

        Aside from Charmaine Sheh and Elaine Yiu, which other actresses smoke?

      Most artists smoke so what is the big deal??? They smoke to relieve stress and to stay awake during the long filming hours. At least that is what they said..

      I’m a fan and I was a bit disappointed because smoking is bad for your body! Other than that, I don’t really care because it’s her own choice!

          no i meant her skin in general (not just the face) Her skin still looks very fair. Normally ppl that smoke would get dry and slightly wrinkle looking skin.

        Another one on the “unkissable” list. LOL!

        It’s amazing that as smoking became ostracized and more rare in the West, it is actually growing in Asia especially among females.

        Aside from potential health risk, it is really a disgusting habit hygenically

          I envy those with flawless fair skin.

          Another actress with fair skin is Angela Tong.

          I suppose is in their genes.

      Another lame reason to look down on someone because she has a “flaw” HK citizens can’t accept.

      “Known for her pure, elegant, and sweet image onscreen …. ”

      Really?? I only remember her onscreen image as spoilt, bratty, unreasonable. From the first time I saw her on Revolving Doors of Vegence, to her roles as Linda Chung’s friend in A Journey Called Life, to Kevin and Kate’s spoilt brat sister in Burning Flame 3 + Last One Standing, and Speech of Silence. She was materialistic in When Lane Merges, and a “fake” in Cant Buy Me Love. Her only sweet role was in Safe Guard, which was heavily criticized.

      Although her acting has improved (her looks too!) in recent years, but I really don’t remember her as the pure, sweet, elegant type. Maybe for Life and Times of a Sentinal. But that’s not exactly pure and sweet …. Pure and sweet will be roles like Linda Chung in Witness Insecurity (yawn), Fala Chan in Rosy Busuness 2, Tavia in that physics serial with Raymond as Prof King …

      Yes, yes, yes, Elaine is the most beautiful of the entire Outbound Love cast, beating Aimee Chan and Vivian Yeo.

      Sweet sweet Elaine, forget those rubbish the tabloids say about you.

      Of course fans will be disappointed. Smoking is a disgusting habit, it’s natural if you fancied an idol you would feel differently when you find out. Unless you smoke yourself, it is just not sexy at all.
