Katy Kung and Joey Law’s “Hong Kong Love Stories” to Air on December 7

With the fourth wave of COVID-19 infections taking over Hong Kong, many have returned to their previous lifestyle of gathering restrictions and remote work from home to avoid further spread. With the past three waves, television ratings peaked due to the large number of people staying home. Forensic Heroes 4 <法证先锋IV>, which aired in February, broke rating records and became the highest-rated drama in seven years. In a move to capitalize on the increased number of potential viewers, TVB announced it will add Hong Kong Love Stories <香港愛情故事> to its fourth drama line-up starting on December 7.

Starring Joey Law (羅天宇), Katy Kung (龔嘉欣), Venus Wong (王敏奕), and Mimi Kung (龔慈恩), Hong Kong Love Stories consist of 12 episodes and follow the lives of the Chan family and the love relationships of each family member, touching on the different values among the different generations.

The trailer features a steamy scene between Katy and Joey in a love motel. They are forced to find different temporary spaces for intimacy due to the high housing prices in Hong Kong. Many viewers will resonate with Katy’s character, who still lives with her family and is unable to have privacy with her boyfriend. Excited that Hong Kong Love Stories will air, Katy is eager for viewers to see a different side of her after her earlier assassin role in Death by Zero <殺手>.

Even though Hong Kong Love Stories was moved up from its original 2021 release, producer Lincoln Lam (林肯) indicated that the editing is already complete, and they are just waiting to send it to different streaming platforms.

Starting next week, TVB will be airing an unprecedented four dramas in one evening. It will start with Come Home Love: Lo and Behold <愛.回家之開心速遞> at 8 p.m., followed by Line Walker: Bull Fight <使徒行者3 > at 8:30 p.m., Legal Mavericks 2 <踩過界II > at 9:30 p.m., and Hong Kong Love Stories at 10:30 p.m. As the drama will be broadcast until 11:30 p.m., TVB’s evening news which airs every night at 11 p.m. will be delayed by half an hour.

Competing for local viewership is competitor ViuTV, which will be airing its popular talent competition King Maker III <全民造星III > during the 10:30 to 11:30 p.m. time slot. In the past, the ratings of King Maker tend to climb higher as it approaches its finale. Last year’s show received a high of 3.6 points–the ratings may climb even more this year as everyone is home during the pandemic.

    Haven’t the people of Hong Kong suffered enough this year, that TVB would want to add more pain to their year, isn’t one Katy Kung series enough? She is a god awful actress.

    I believe all hongkongers can relate to the storylines but I wished it’s done by someone else… I don’t enjoy her acting…the guy is quite good looking though… ex BF of Roxanne Tong, if anyone cares…

      @conan2209 Yup, JL looks cute as always and she looks older than him too not sure of their real age but he’s definitely cute. KK is always boring in anything she plays.

        @wm2017 she seems to be gaining fans in HK though….Hkers really need good international exposure to acting skills & to learn how to disassociate politics from entertainment

        @wm2017 she’s not boring (like the way I find Natalie is boring) but she definitely overacts and is sometimes cringeworthy

        @bubbles23 I find alot of them boring. haha lol….NT definitely is boring and she’s a great looking girl but just missing something as well. I also find Mandy Wong extremely boring and overrated as well but I guess HKers like them.

        @wm2017 yeah who knows why people like them. Like if people have watched Charmaine/Tavia (as an example) and other actually good actresses then I don’t understand why they would also think NT, Mandy Wong are good

        @bubbles23 it’s the way TVB does it. If they throw the actors/actresses to the HKers often enough, they will be brainwashed to believe it’s good acting. Just look at Myolie, she’s awful yet termed BA and liked by so many…I so remember cringing and boycotting every show she’s in!

        If only HKers can learn to be more discerning

        @bubbles23 I thought she did well as Bosco’s wife in steps from heaven and my ages apart and also the one with Owen cheung as lead- can’t remember the title. I find her quite versatile but maybe she just doesn’t have enough screen appearance. Natalie and Mandy are really boring!
