Representing TVB, Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Ronald Law (羅鈞滿), and Dickson Wong (黃得生) participated in a soccer cup match against rival station, ATV. Although there were more than twenty fans cheering for the TVB team, ATV won with a score of 5 to 0.

After the soccer match, Kenneth complained, “We are always filming and have no time to practice together, thus our team skills are rusty! During the soccer game, someone stepped on my heel. Fortunately, the injury was not too serious. Otherwise, I will be scolded by the drama producer!”

Asked about his romatnic rumors with Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Kenneth said with a smile, “We are not dating. Rumors were generated after she moved near my neighborhood.” Asked whether he was pursuing other girls, Kenneth replied, “My age is advanced; I do not think about these matters.”

Jayne: Glad that Kenneth still reserves time for soccer despite his busy career. In a past interview, he said that if he were not an actor, he would have become a soccer player, minus his earlier Engineering stint.

    I think Kenneth Ma just likes playing soccer as a sport, but he was never a professional or top soccer player. Also he never worked for ATV; he is always a TVB actor.

    Hey, there’s Kenneth’s famous monkey tank again!

    When being interviewed on camera, Kenneth is quite flirty w/ Rebecca chu and other girls. But I think he is all talk, and no action. Nancy probably wants a more proactive guy.

      Josie,
      You have sharp eyes in spotting Kenneth’s monkey shirt. Guess he has a preference for cute cartoon characters, as he is a big fan of Donald Duck.

      Kenneth has the best personality of them all why is he still alone? He don’t play mainland dolls, don’t get drunk at nightclubs, don’t smoke and don’t waste money on cars! Great husband material!

        LOL, that was what I said recently, but got scolded because some people think Kenneth has secret lifestyle, just no one found out yet 😛

        But girls like bad boys 😛

        Nicole,
        I think everyone has a counterside that balances themselves. While Bosco may have a wild side (clubbing, drinking), he also has a domestic side where he likes to cook. Allegedly, he cooks for Myolie and doesn’t allow her to go in the kitchen.

        For Kenneth, he has only spoken about liking Donald Duck (collecting figurines) and soccer. Maybe there is a wild side to Kenneth that we don’t know about too. Kenneth is pretty sharp in interviews (almost “mouth rinsed in oil”), thus there must be more interesting side to him than he allows the public to know.

        to Nicole, Jayne and Vivien, I found an article which Myolie spoke why she’s with the bad boy for now despite he’s smoking, drinking, partying:

        http://entertainment.xin.msn.com/en/celebrity/buzz/asia/article.aspx?cp-documentid=5820254

        Myolie Wu sheds light on relationship with Bosco Wong
        The TVB actress thinks her boyfriend is someone she can rely on

        This person is definitely not for me.

        That’s what Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu thought when she first met fellow actor Bosco Wong on the set of their first drama Triumph in the Skies. She thought Bosco was a ‘bad boy’ because he would often go clubbing.

        Fast forward seven years later, and Myolie declared her love to Bosco right in front of the audience as she accepted her award for Best Actress at the TVB Anniversary Awards for her role in the drama Curse of the Royal Harem.

        Their relationship came to light last year after Myolie was photographed at Bosco’s residence.

        Myolie expressed that her first impression of Bosco was pretty bad, when they first collaborated in drama Triumph in the Skies.

        The actress shared that her impression of Bosco changed when they worked on Wars of the In-laws. She was surprised to find out that “he is actually very hardworking and quick-witted. He is also respectful to the seniors and is never late, so I began to have a better impression of him”.

        The couple chose to keep their relationship a secret as they were worried that their company would misunderstand that they would lose focus of their work.

        However, during that time, Myolie started to become irritable, as she could not meet Bosco publicly and was facing too much pressure at work.

        “When I gained weight to film To Grow with Love, I broke down on the first day of the shoot. I cried uncontrollably in front of the camera and could not eat,” the actress shared.

        Thankfully, the understanding Bosco was caring towards her and even cooked noodles for her.

        Myolie began to change because of Bosco’s optimism. The actress smiled and said, “[We have] different personalities, so we can help to remind each other our flaws and change for the better.”

        As Myolie’s parents were divorced, she never thought she would ever get married. But now that she has found someone that she could rely on, marriage is very much on her mind.

        “Both parties have to be strong, when it comes to relationships. They have to face [challenges] and work hard for the family, no matter what happens,” Myolie added.

        Lol,
        “Bad boy” Bosco is more than meets the eye. He has a wild side, but he also appears to have an attentive, loving and domestic side as well.

        The MSN article you linked is based off Myolie’s recent interview with Ming Pao magazine. The original Ming Pao article is very long and I’ve been translating it in spurts. Hope to have it done by end of this week, as it offers great insight into Myolie’s childhood (growing up in a divorced family) and why she loves Bosco. She said he complements her, makes her whole. She is baring their love to the world. I do hope they get married one day.

        It’s easy for the media to slam Bosco based on his wild side, but I think he’s an attentive and loving boyfriend. It really depends on what aspects you focus on.

        @jayne maybe one reason both of them are yet to get married because both of them are from single families lol

        Myolie is at the peak of her career now, she won’t get married this early 🙂

        Kenneth was an engineer and was a university graduate before joining TVB, so he is more educated than many of the actors in his generation.

        Ron – Form 3 but lied at first saying it’s Form 5
        Tavia – Form 5
        Bosco – Form 7
        Raymond Lam – Went to uni but didn’t finish?

        Quite a number of people who grew up in families that are both broken and dysfunctional tend to have a phobia of marriage. I can personally attest to it.

        There are many great men and women whom are still single. I guess it is just fate. There are some that aren’t that great but yet always have someone…

        Well sometimes it takes active searching and putting yourself out there. It is difficult to meet someone without the right social opportunity.

        Jayne,
        It is true, but it still depends. I know that try really hard and always try to look for someone but still don’t find anyone. Like in Kenneth’s case, he is always surrounded by his co stars and all but yet he still doesn’t have anyone yet…

      Ha ha! If nancy doesn’t want him, give him to me! I doubt he is all talk no action. He looks like that sort of guy who will treat his wife well, as in not overindulge well but you know, decent respectful well. Nancy is lucky, twice over. And who doesn’t love Donald? We can have a date at HK Disneyland! Chasing after Donald. MOVE OVER DAISY!!

      Ever explain why he likes Donald?

        Agreed. Kenneth will be a good husband who will treat his wife great. What is Nancy seeking to let Kenneth go? Or she likes bad boys? Her previous bf Deep Ng I remember had drug case.

        I thought they reconciled?

        I mean I don’t know Kenneth. He could be a 2 timing b*st*rd for all I know. But sorta like an impression, gut feeling. His problem is his lack of ambition, his lack of personality, his lack of onscreen charisma and his natural ability to flirt off screen but not onscreen and also… also the fact most rumours I hear are of the flirtatious kind.

        Funn,
        “I mean I don’t know Kenneth. He could be a 2 timing b*st*rd for all I know. But sorta like an impression, gut feeling.

        In a past interview, Kenneth said that he starting acting more “flirtatiously” with his female costars because he wanted to establish a greater comfort level with them, to spark greater chemistry onscreen. Thus, he started calling everyone “leng lui” on the set. I do agree with Nicole that he is all talk and no action.

        Maybe Kenneth is a “marathon” runner and not one to dash in short spurts. He likes to take his time in building his career and love. He doesn’t date casually for the sake of dating, but would rather wait until he has that strong feeling for someone. Not a “serial dater” for sure.

        I wouldn’t say that he lacks ambition in life. He just takes his time to accomplish it. Striking it rich does not seem to be his ultimate goal, as he came from a family of engineers. Since his family background was never poor (thus inciting a great urge to make lots of money one day), Kenneth appears to be content as long as he makes enough for a somewhat comfortable living. His ambition is to constantly improve in his acting. He comes across as sharp, well-spoken, observative and intelligent, in which he is able to apply all he has experienced to his acting performances.

        Based on my gut feeling and news, he seems to be somewhat of a loner, or rather independent (doesn’t need too much social company). I wouldn’t say that he lacks personality, but rather lacks the glamorous lifestyle that celebrities are often associated with. Kenneth seems to be engaging enough in interviews (which may equate to his conversational skills), however, he may not possess very exciting hobbies on the side.

        Maybe I should write he lacks the personality that would make him standout. He seems rather quiet except when with his lady co stars. He sorta remind me of Kevin Cheng, except less serious. Between Kevin and Bosco in a variety show, obviously Bosco was more outgoing since he is younger. There is a sense of maturity and seriousness with Kevin, that sort that just doesn’t show much in variety show. Kenneth to me is that sort, except he is younger. Maybe someone should remind him don’t get too old before his time.

      HeTieShou,
      I met my husband at a party, asked for his phone number and e-mail. Fortunately he showed early interest, but he did admit that he would not have taken the initiative to pursue things further if I hadn’t taken that first step.

      Also if you have already exhausted your current circle of friends, there are always online dating sites such as eharmony.com. I have 3 friends who found their spouses on the site and highly recommend it. You need to have patience filling out their 500 question form, but it is supposed to filter out your important priorities and find matches that fit what you are looking for. The success rate is supposed to be very high.

      As Charmaine said, if one strategy doesn’t work, just try a new one.

        Jayne,
        Thanks for sharing how you met your husband… But you know, not everyone wants to get married in life. One of my friends is like that. My other friend tried to introduce me to one her friends(he is Kenneth’s age too)but I have other things on my mind right now besides love… I will check out that site to see how it is. WOW, 500 questions?? Goodness…That is really a lot. Your friends really found their spouses on that site?? You must be kidding me… I know that people have found love on the net, but that doesn’t happen that often and you need to be careful since there are a lot of bad people out there as well.. I have found my best and lifelong friends online, but not sure about love though.

        Well the 500 questions are designed so that they repeat coverage over certain topics, to develop an accurate profile of people’s traits and values, to find a better match. You have to pay to use eharmony.com, since it is known as a quality site that matches people based on personality, which it touts to be higher success than other sites. You have to be patient using the system, answer the questions truthfully to find your best match.

        People who go on eharmony also tend to be serious in finding a dating partner, leaning towards marriage. Partially because it takes patience and dedication to use their system and you have to pay a fee. Nothing outrageous though. My friend paid around $60 or so to use it for 3 (?) months and she found her future husband in one month. I remember her consulting me on how to answer a few questions on the questionaire. They dated for 1 year before getting engaged. Same thing for the other 2 people who used the site.

        Not all dating sites are equal. Some dating sites are known scams, where people use as place for hookups for short flings.

        I agree marriage is not for everyone. But finding the right partner in life can be wonderful, someone to help you, support and care for you, sort things out as a joint decision maker etc.

    It just shows the only thing ATV is winning is friendly football matches that didn’t matter?

    Kenneth is a natural flirt even if he is puppy dog about it.

    I like Kenneth Ma for his good-looking face and his genuine personality. He flirts with his co-artistes offscreen, but not in real life. I agree that he may want to know his partners well so that he can show his affection onscreen. I think he is a shy person in reality.

    He is not ambitious in terms of money as he is from a fairly well-off, but not super rich, professional family. However, he is very ambitious in terms of acting. He accepted any kinds of roles, good or bad, in order to upgrade his acting skills.

    He graduated from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada, with a B.Sc. (Mechanical Engineering). He is more educated than many of the current siu-sangs.
