Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) promoted their new drama, Prominent Family <名媛望族>, at the 2012 Filmart expo yesterday. The pair  enjoyed their increased popularity stemming from the success of medical drama, The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>. There has already been early buzz that a sequel for The Hippocratic Crush may be filmed.

A Showdown of Dramatic Acting Talent in “Prominent Family”

The story of Prominent Family centered around Damien Lau (劉松仁), who portrayed the first Chinese lawyer in British Hong Kong in the 1920s. The intense rivalry among Damien Lau’s five wives will threaten to shake the foundation of Damien’s family to the core. Kenneth will portray Damien’s eldest son who is also a barrister, upholding the family amidst turbulence.

Prominent Family showcased TVB’s forte, which was the portrayal of family conflicts. Despite the talented cast, especially veterans Damien Lau and Idy Chan (陳玉蓮), much ado has been made regarding the quality of the script itself. Will the script be able to draw forth the audience’s strong emotions of tears, sadness and anger? Earlier, rumors circulated that Damien had to become a part-time scriptwriter for the drama due to the lack of experienced staff involved in the project.  Kenneth Ma and Tavia Yeung denied such rumors, citing that Damien would only offer his advice upon any matters of interest regarding the script and was not as involved as rumors suggested. The cast of Prominent Family will be filming in Shanghai in April.

A Sequel for “The Hippocratic Crush”

Recently, “Heartthrob Doctor” Kenneth Ma graced tabloid headlines in one publication after the other. Kenneth’s popularity shot to its highest zenith in his 12-year career after the airing of The Hippocratic Crush, which peaked at 39 points in its finale, with approximately 2.47 million viewers watching in Hong Kong. Although it may still be early, rumors were abuzz regarding the creation of a sequel.

Kenneth was eager to resume his role as neurosurgeon, “Cheung Yat Kin,”  in The Hippocratic Crush. Although Kenneth professed that the doctor role was similar to the well-mannered characters he portrayed in the past, the character was very mature and matched his real-life age. The combination of a good script with moving scenes, timing and luck helped push the popularity of his character higher.

Kenneth also credited the chemistry of The Hippocratic Crush’s young cast, who he had urged to put forth their best efforts during filming. Kenneth advised sagely, “Since many artists left TVB, there are many opportunities available. Now it is dependent upon who puts in efforts in their acting. If you can grasp each role you portray, then your workload will continue to increase. The producers do not need you to give them gifts. They need people to act in their dramas. If you are able to deliver a good performance, then you will be included in the next project.”

It Takes Time To Age A Fine Wine

Despite the recent praises for his acting, Kenneth agreed with Damien Lau’s perspective that an actor needed to continuously improve one’s acting and there was no finite point to reach, according to Apple Daily. Kenneth also expressed appreciation for seasoned veterans, “In my past interviews, I have expressed that siu sangs are not difficult to find. You can find these young actors in the acting training classes and cast them in 2 or 3 dramas, with the support of the veteran actors. On the contrary, the veteran actors, with 20 to 30 years of experience, are difficult to find. They are very important. If they are gone, they are gone.”

Kenneth learned that a sequel for The Hippocratic Crush with the original cast was planned, but did not know when production will begin. He indicated that he hoped to have Tavia Yeung as his romantic costar in the sequel again.

      Dr. Puppy eyes will probably get a new love interest in the sequel, set after tavia has died off-screen.

      I’m still hoping for Nancy b/c they keep paring her w/ older guys- Wayne and now, mak bao in “daddy good deeds”. She deserves someone younger and hotter.

    Will they kill off one of the major character to make way for another?

    ” Kenneth will portray Damien’s eldest son who is also a barrister, upholding the family amidst turbulence.”

    Good guy role like in A Fistful Of Stances (ahhhh so handsome!) is great for Kenneth. If it is a villain… you all know I love him right? If there is an essay contest of him I might probably win (yet again!) but seriously, he can’t act as villain. Absolutely unconvincing. I want to see him in similar role like in AFOS or in a tragic melancholic story of a really nice guy suffering really bad luck but ending up with the woman he loves. For serious acting thespian, even in THC, sometimes he is wonderful, sometimes he is just… too cute to be taken seriously and I want to take him seriously.

    These days I have been very free in confessing my love for my favourite stars so here I go again; Kenneth, I love you BUT steer clear of villainous roles. And please do stop with the pouting and puppy dog looks.

        EVen I am tired of typing so much words!! No no no. Whatever my feelings about liking him, honestly, truthfully, I still feel he has a long way to go to be the actor he wants to be or his fans thinks he is. But at least shows he has room for improvement and tweaking.

        Tavia to me is a competent to good actress but she doesn’t have that room for tweaking anymore. Her style is rather set and therefore, boring. To me she is still not leading lady material, no matter how TVB keep sticking her down my throat and go “NOT LEADING LADY?! TAKE THIS!! NAHHHHHH!!! TAKE! ANOTHER SERIES! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER!!!!!!”

        She needs more training to become evil.

        HAHAHA. Agreed that Tavia needs a break from dramas for awhile. I’m bored of seeing her in every series.

        What do people think of her chemistry with Kenneth in THC? I wasn’t sure what to think, especially since an interview a few years ago where Kenneth said he really wanted to work with Tavia b/c she was the only fadan he hadn’t worked with yet at the time.

      • Hannah replied:

        Tavia is horrible at portraying a villain. The one thing she can’t master yet (actually, a lot of the siu sangs and fadans are lacking in this).

        Anyway, I wonder if this is a one-time hit for Tavia. According to the script writers, the roles were tailor-made for her and Kenneth. I mean, if she can’t perform a tailor-made role, then there’s no hope. Let’s see how she does in PF.

        I think we should give more chance to Tavia in terms of playing villain. Yes, she did not do well in BTROC, but, that was her first try. Prominent Family will be her 3rd villain role. Maybe she would be better this time.

        “I think we should give more chance to Tavia in terms of playing villain.”

        Agreed! Maybe she will have more personality. As long as she steer clears from BTROC type of acting AND the role is written well (since BTROC villain is pointless), I think she can do well. Anything where she isn’t the lead or the spotlight is taken away from her she will be fine.

        She has chemistry with Ma Ming but not those I wanna tear off your clothes sort. I find them not very passionate or longing in the way they stare at each other. You know Tavia’s half asleep eyes and Ma Ming’s big puppy dog eyes, neither conveyed that passion of longing. None.

        Really? I thought her character in Hou Gong was really different from BTROC. She actually looked more evil to me in a less exaggerated way.

      • Fox replied:

        @sure-lee: The way she smirked and rolled eyes are totally the same, if not more exaggerated. Always find her jaw line after HOG is weird and like frozen. And why she can’t never use the eyes effectively when trying to be “evil”?

        @Kidd: Let’s see and I don’t put any hope on her. Damien might help her and if he can, wonderful. I saw a bit of the trailer in Filmart and look like the lesson isn’t learned. Somehow, I hope she’ll continue with saint roles like in MR forever because at least I don’t have to see her smirk.

        Ahhhh Josie, Ray Wong-nothing to do with him being married. He is just too pale and sickly looking for my taste. I do like the way he talks; give me a sense that he is an old fashioned good man. But love him.. no.

        Ruco… have to see first. Right now still feeling the serial killer vibe from him.

        Edwin Siu? NO.

        My heart now belongs to some very pretty guys. Anyone visiting my blog will know, because this person is consistently in my 2 top posts. Coupled with my love for Fukuyama Masaharu, I am rather busy. But I notice, most if not all guys I like may not be considered classically masculine handsome but they all have beautiful features and somewhat flawless skin. I am a sucker for beautiful guys I guess. And also all of them seem rather old in behaviour.

        But why suddenly bring up Edwin Siu?

        Hawick Lau? Handsome but no. NO NO NO.

        Him Him I like but love? Too kiddie.

        Him him was cute in THC but I keep imagining him putting theresa in a headlock when they fight and he goes “the hulk” mode.

        I thought u might like Edwin since he’ll probably play a cute and nice guy who really loves Linda in DGD. I know I would definitely pick him over Steven.

        Funn, Kidd,
        Overall, I agree with Funn’s standards on beauty. Hehe I remember her list of Chinese beautiful actresses and I agree with her list, as well as the recent men list.

        I find Wallace Huo to be very beautiful too. Very memorable face? More in ancient costume than in modern dramas. His features are each individually beautiful, but not particularly a face with a lot of character. I feel the same way about Masaharu Fukuyama, a beautiful face but due to the perfection, not a lot of character. Wallace Chung is handsome too; glad he found success outside of TVB.

        I prefer a very masculine quality in male actors, such as Takashi Sorimachi, Andy On, and Mark Cheng. Not necessarily perfectly handsome, but a very masculine quality and appearance. A “dangerous” edge, not necessarily through long hair or tattoos, but a hard edge to the man. Nice muscles are the finishing touch. IMO, a very memorable man is someone who has a heightened masculinity.

        I think I’m past the stage of pretty high school boy look.

        I like Masaharu Fukuyama’s look. I think he has a memorable face because he left an impression on me the first time I saw him on TV. I was quite young then, still studying in school. I didn’t go gaga over him. But, I like and remember him. Many years later, when I started working and earned my own money, I bought that ‘Beauty and Beast’ series because of him.
        I’m sure, back then, it’s not because of his acting that made him memorable to me, because I didn’t know how to judge good or bad acting at that time. So, it’s definitely his face. 😀

        Kidd, which Wallace you say is very very handsome or rather not very very handsome?

        I wish to clarify Wallace Huo is beautiful. Not handsome, but beautiful.

        Masha has loads of character. You don’t want to know his personal habit. He has great stage presence. He alone could stand in the middle and sing and no props, guest stars, anything and he can sustain attention for more than 3 hours. Plus he is a great singer and if he had paid more attention to acting, a great actor.

        Wallace Chung ar… look young for his age I suppose? More manlier I suppose?

        But sorry, I love classically beautiful men not verging on a-qua but like you know, scholarly beautiful.

        Wallace Chung. In my mind, Wallace is Wallace Chung. So, unless stated otherwise, assume I’m talking about Wallace Chung. If Wallace Huo, I’ll include the surname.

        Ping said Wallace Chung is very very handsome. So, I replied that Wallace Chung is handsome, but, not very very handsome. Of course, ping disagreed. Lol.

        kate is really 5’6′ tall because Ms HK got a minimum requirement in height. 5’4 is just a “pass” height to join the beauty contest and eventually if you’re 5’4 in beauty contest, that will make you the shortest cuz most girls are either 5’5 and above.

        I think TY is the shortest among fala, kate, myolie and linda.

      • Masaharu replied:

        Kate looks “short” because the 180cm guys were not lying about their heights as opposed to what many people think. Bosco, Raymond Lam, Steven Ma and Michael Miu are logically at this “180cm” mark.

        Daniel Wu, Lai Lok Yi, Matthew Ko, Kenneth Ma are 6 footers.

        I can’t be sure but I wil always minus 3 inches from official reported height. I have only ever met Kenix in person so I can only judge as against her. She was wearing very high heels and even then she was almost same height with me and I am the last time I check 5 feet 4 inches. What’s her name.. Joyce Tang? EVen shorter. They are all very well porportionate in terms of body for the female actresses which is why you don’t see the actual height. Joe Ma is said to be 6 feet. Even Alex Fong Chung Soon is said to be 6 feet. I will say in their dreams. Plus bad posture, shorter. But the one that shocked me the most was Wong Hei. He was tiny. Maybe because he was very very thin. The one who actually looks good looking and normal in person was the host, Onn Tak Jun. He was to me very attractive.

        Never believe the height thing unless she is Judi Dench who says her height is 5 feet 1 inches tall. THAT I believe.

        i would say kate is around 163-165cm and myolie 170cm. have seen them right in front of me

    Yes yes yes to the sequel!! The cured my heart after being so upset on call wasn’t on yesterday and I ended up rewatching the drama. Yup and then I remembered I fell in love with the drama the moment Kenneth took his shirt off to save a little boy. Please, for a rare once can the sequel be a continuation of the story where the lead couple stick together instead of always killing them. It’s getting overused and I can no longer sympathize with those ridiculous story plots.

    Tvb, I understand that you like drama but if you keep overdoing them, your audience will not tune in. Like last years wax and wane? Story about crazy family rivalry? Already seen it with heart of greed and their awful sequel. Oh and stop makin the same story line only set in a different era.

    oh god so the new trend in TVB series is doctor shows. They better be f****** good. First it was lawyer shows in the early 1990’s, then cop show mid 90’s, then comedy and doctors 00’s, then biatch shows early 00’s, then family fued shows mid 00’s, then forensic shows, then biatch again, then lawyer again and now doctor again. F*** TVB is running out of ideas recycling their own s***.

    mannn there shure is a lot of ty haters here.. almost every comment i read is abt her nose, boring, bad acting or what-so-ever. (pretty repetitive i’d say) can’t read nothing constructive at all.. i wonder if the other 4 girls have a consistent list of commentators who always comment on them ??
