After appearing in TVB drama, Three Kingdoms RPG <回到三國>, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) ascends to one of TVB’s top siu sangs, even stealing the limelight from his costar, Raymond Lam (林峯). Kenneth’s role of an impulsive and comical slacker is a huge breakthrough for him as compared to his previous refined heartthrob doctor role in The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>. Kenneth revealed that in order to bring laughter to the audience, he did not mind shedding his clean and gentlemanly image.

Seeking advice from a veteran actor in the past, Kenneth said, “There was once a senior who taught me that there were two kinds of people: the inferior people will uglify others, and the superior people will only uglify himself. As long as we do not hurt people, it will be good if we can make everyone laugh.” 

“Sima Shun” is a Major Breakthrough for Kenneth

After the broadcast of Three Kingdoms RPG, Kenneth had been criticized for his exaggerated expressions in the series. Kenneth explained his decision for the over-the-top performance, “When I first received the script, I already thought of acting in an exaggerated way. I did consider that some viewers may not be able to accept it. However, Three Kingdoms RPG is a comedy, and Sima Shun is a fictional character. We can’t uglify the historical figures, or else there will be criticisms. We can only uglify Sima Shun.”

Reflecting on his acting skills, Kenneth said, “After acting for many years, a male actor can’t have too many breakthroughs in his looks. I can’t go for plastic surgery or grow long hair, so the only way is to achieve breakthroughs in acting. That’s why I love my Sima Shun role! I am not a comedic actor, but this time I can express my acting in an exaggerated way and this is considered a small switch of my image in my career.” 

Kenneth Ascends to Become TVB’s Hottest Bachelor

TVB siu sangs, Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Ron Ng (吳卓羲) and Raymond Lam (林峯) have been recently plagued by promiscuous scandals involving busty mainland Chinese actresses. Compared to his scandal-tainted colleagues, Kenneth’s good man and healthy image puts him in a different league, ascending to become TVB’s hottest bachelor.

Kenneth also tries his best to protect people around him. He said he could not understand why his ex-girlfriend Nancy Wu (胡定欣) would be accused of a promiscuous past which involved 7 men. Kenneth said, “Nancy is a good woman and has good character and personality. If the media wants to write, then write about me; do not write about a woman. After all, it is a man’s responsibility to protect a woman. As long as it does not hurt anyone, I will am willing to reveal anything.”

Although willing to speak candidly about his career and romance, he still had the responsibility to protect his family’s privacy. He said, “I am in this line of work, so I can’t avoid it. If there is a need for me to reveal anything, I will reveal it. However, my family is different; I do not want them to be under the public spotlight. I still hope to give my family a comfortable environment.”

Kenneth is indeed a rare gem in the Hong Kong entertainment industry. He exudes his intellectuality from his approach in his career and relationships with family and friends. He always puts others above him. He hopes to delight viewers with his acting and in his private life. He does his utmost best to protect his close ones. It is no wonder that he has quickly ascended to become TVB’s hottest bachelor!

      He really needs to do something about his hair. I haven’t seen Kenneth with a nice hairstyle EVER!

        I actually really liked his hair in Mysteries Of Love. I think that series is the only exception.

          Can’t remember how it looks like, but if he only has one good hairstyle in like 2 years.. he needs a hairstylist pronto!
          I can’t decide what his current hairstyle is..

          Nicole,
          Kenneth’s hair is now like “poodle hair”! I can’t take his hair seriously! I am surprised he went along with the perm idea.
          Taiwanese celebrities have better stylists!

          Kenneth had skin clinic sponsor for some time ago. It was reported in news that in his spare time, he would go for facials.

          But his skin can’t stand the test of HD though.

        • Gar replied:

          He actually looked really hunky in that series IMO, even better than LF who consistently appeared in suits and formal attire.

          I do agree that his current hairstyle does not suit him one bit. In fact, men do not look good in permed hair at all, period!!!

        • Gar replied:

          I think Kenneth has large pores which is probably what he was trying to minimize with the help of facials.

        • AC replied:

          Kenneth’s skin has actually greatly improved due to the skin sponsor. If you don’t think it’s good currently under HD, just imagine how it used to be since it was bad under non-HD.

      Excuse me, this series already uglified Zhou Yu, Lau Bei and especially ZGL.

      And it has stopped being comedy for a very long time.

      Sorry, I cant feel his efforts to protect the ppl around him. Nancy has never had any link with princess illness until MM presented it to her in a sudden and then this title stuck to her.

      Alright, he might be a good guy but he should never protect anyone. Never. He only made the situation worse. Just good to himself is ok.

      So I guess the reality is that he’s the hottest TVB bachelor right now because the other TVB dudes can’t keep their pants on.

      That’s like winning a swimming race because all the other competitors all got leg cramps.

      When it comes to Kenneth I always imagine his character in real life is the same as in “A fist full of Stance” =). He is not the most handsome, but a character of a person can add extra points.

        It is quite okay for a guy to remain as a bachelor at the age of 38. As long as his wife is under 40, they still can have children.

        Well, if Jessica Hsuan does not plan to have children, she can get married at the age of 60 (like Liza Wang). It will only be a problem if she wants to have kids. And with IVF, she may even be able to have kids now at a later age.

          HTS, i always thought MILF stands for something in a polite way to describe a woman who was in a relationship but not anymore now.. and is currently seeking for love but I was wrong after I googled it and found a rather shocking explanation on MILF lmfao.

          Go google it up, u will be surprised.

      But that dog.. may just be a similar dog. Can’t really see it clearly.

      • Fox replied:

        The left eye of the Husky dog isn’t same as LF’s dog Mimi’s. The left eye of Mimi is black while the dog in the pic is light:

        http://ww1.sinaimg.cn/large/6482e5f1gw1dvi3khqp93j.jpg

        Can’t be the same dog.

        Liu Yuqi disappointed me a lot. She even dun bother to dig the info before opening mouth. It leads to a lot of holes in her storyline. Last time she went to wrong tower, this time she hugged the wrong dog. If she wanna convince ppl, she should put more efforts.

        • Veejay replied:

          Maybe Liu Yuqi was drunk and hugged the wrong guy thinking it’s LF and the guy happen to have a dog too LOL. Poor Liu Yuqi.

        • Fox replied:

          Not Liu Yuqi but her sister with the same manager :). Zheng Yun Cheng is the girl in the pic, she intentionally called the reporters from Next magazine to sell her pic with the wrong dog.

          Maybe Liu Yuqi and Zheng Yun Cheng both drunk and hugged the wrong dog :P.

        Oh sorry, not drama queen Liu Yuqi but her good sister this time – Zheng Yun Cheng.

        Such a couple of sister. One went to wrong tower, one hugged wrong dog.

        Lolz, poor Mimi btw. Now every Husky named Mimi.

      • Fox replied:

        Second sorry :P. I read the summary only and had a mistake. Finally read the text.

        LMAO~, so it’s Liu Yuqi the one who hugged the wrong dog. Zheng Yun Cheng is the “revealed” party who sent the pic of the wrong dog to Next. And according to Next, the dog is the most important evident to say that Liu Yuqi and LF dated. I LMAO-ed! Have a try but failed. Wrong dog. Next time she should hug a right dog or at least find a dog who look similar.

        On the other hand, Karena is also given the same fate with LF when Next said she is a cheater to Derek Wong. Next said that Karena and Derek in love for 1.5 years and met the parents of both. However, after knowing and working with LF, Karena changed heart and dumped Derek.

        Haha, now Karena and LF becomes a couple of cheaters. Good! They are perfect to each other.

          This is stupid. If Liu Yu qi really got into LF’s house, she will take picture of his awards, and stuff, now there’s only a picture of a dog…

        • Fox replied:

          A wrong dog :P.

          So even the dog she can’t snapped.

          Liu Yuqi’s story now becomes a mix of PSS and Rose’s. Rose has a pic of his dog and lead Liu Yuqi’s to the idea of the dog. But she didn’t check for how Mimi look, just know that he has a Husky one. Then she hugged a random dog, sent it to Zheng Yun Cheng but didn’t know that the left eyeball of Mimi is grey but the one she hugged is light.

          That’s why she is a big failure.

      If he’s as good as what was described, then he should keep it up. But as far as I can see, not many good-looking guys in entertainment circle are clean from scandals. I’ll really salute him if he can keep his love life low profile and simple to the end.
