Kate Tsui to Sign with Wong Cho Lam’s Company
Leaving TVB last year, Kate Tsui (徐子珊) did not immediately sign with a management company. Instead, she launched her own jewelry collection and took on select projects. After considering for one year, Kate finally decided to work with Wong Cho Lam‘s (王祖藍) company, which is partially funded by Shaw Brothers.
Kate revealed that she will officially sign the contract with Wong Cho Lam’s company soon. The most important criteria when choosing a company to sign with was mutual respect and trust. Asked if Kate will be focusing on movies, she said, “I’m not sure yet. I have to wait until Cho Lam returns [to Hong Kong] to discuss my future direction. The length of the contract is reasonable.”
With her jewelry website launching in July, Kate hopes that she will be able to juggle her time between managing her own business and filming. Realizing that her energy is incomparable to the time when she was in her twenties, Kate will try her best to find the right work-life balance.
Prefers Masculine Men
In the recently released film Buddy Cops <刑警兄弟>, Kate Tsui sheds her beauty queen image and portrays an unattractive girl with an extreme overbite. Sharing a romantic storyline with comedy actor, King Kong (金剛), Kate said she is also not shallow when it comes to choosing a boyfriend in real life. “I never said I would choose a handsome man. Because after seeing him for a while, you will get used to it. The most important thing is communication.”
Although Kate often portrays strong, independent women on screen, she admitted that in private, she is actually a passive woman. “I am attracted to masculine men who are a bit older. I don’t mean the physically muscular type of masculine men, but the ones who are knowledgeable and can teach me a lot of things. It’s best if he can help me make decisions on everything!”
However, due to the constant media attention, Kate has no desire to date any of her costars from the entertainment industry. “I can’t handle it. I would go crazy!”
With many of TVB’s fadans getting married one after another, Kate admitted that it made her nervous at one point about her single status. “I’ve questioned myself and wondered whether I should be doing these things. After resting for a year, I reflected on many things. In the end, am I choosing to get married and have children to satisfy other people and meet their expectations? Or am I doing it to make myself happy? I realized that my happiness is not based on these things. Instead, it is being able to choose [my own path]. Due to all my hard work from the last decade, I am now financially stable enough to be able to choose my own path. I can also sufficiently support my parents. I don’t need to force myself to find someone to take care of them.”
