Kevin Cheng and “A Fistful of Stances” Cast Meet for Dinner

Kevin Cheng Ka Wing, Kara Hui Ying Hung, Natalie Tong, Nancy Wu Ding Yan, and other cast members of “A Fistful of Stances” met for dinner in Tsim Sha Tsui. The cast hoped that the finale episode will achieve good results on Sunday night. At the same time, they wished Kara Hui will win the Best Actress recognition at the Hong Kong Film Awards for her performance in “At the End of Daybreak.”

Due to her attendance at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Kara will be unable to meet with the cast of “A Fistful of Stances” to watch the broadcast of the finale together. Reporters joked that on April 18th, there may be a ratings battle between Kara’s appearance at the film awards versus her performance in “A Fistful of Stances.”

Kara smiled, “The Hong Kong Film Awards is not only my personal matter. The results for ‘A Fistful of Stances’ are also due to the entire cast. It would be ideal if we can pull high ratings for the series and at the same time, I receive the Best Actress Award.”

Kara revealed that Kevin was unhappy about the initial ratings of “A Fistful of Stances.” Kevin explained “It’s not to the point where I was unhappy, but I was disappointed. We all had high expectations; the script was good so there was no reason for the poor ratings.” (Was Kevin more satisfied with the current ratings results?) “The ratings can be better. The first episode of ‘A Fistful of Stances’ was aired on a Wednesday night. I believe this had some impact [on ratings for subsequent episodes].”

In an earlier interview, Amigo Chui publicly thanked ex-flame, Natalie Tong. In response, Natalie said, “I read the interview. I would like to thank him too. I agree with what he said, that our names should be separated and not mentioned together so frequently.” Currently, Natalie indicated that she was not interested in dating, perhaps rejecting a reunification with Amigo.

Earlier there were rumors that Nancy Wu was involved with a rich businessman, thereby ending her relationship with rumored boyfriend, Kenneth Ma Kwok Ming. Since Kenneth did not appear at the “A Fistful of Stances” dinner that night, it appears that he may be avoiding Nancy. In response, Nancy clarified, “The rumors are false and I regard it as just publicity for ‘A Fistful of Stances.’ (Was Nancy currently supported by a rich businessman?)  “In life, you have to depend on yourself. I will not choose this route.”

Jayne: After “Rosy Business’” spectacular success, everyone had high hopes for “A Fistful of Stances.” Since the broadcast is on a Sunday night, perhaps it will achieve higher ratings than on a weekday night.

  1. The script was good? The script was awful! First Kevin (as the son) violently refuses to believe anyone but his adoptive mother and father as his family then when she dies he quickly and warmly embraces his real family? To the point where he remembers his childhood with his father (That he clearly should have forgotten since he so strongly believed his adoptive mother was his birth mother). Such an inconsistent script! He changes from one person to a completely different one! Gah! Sorry for the rant but seriously now. I’m not even gonna get started on all the pity parties they had throughout the series…

    I am curious to see how it ends though…so I will keep watching despite it all.

  2. For some reason, everytime I see a Kevin tvb drama, I’m not even remotely interested. He never gives any depth to his characters that I refuse to believe he played more than one type of character in the last decade. His acting is so terrible and although there are glimmers of hope in the case of ‘Last Standing’, he goes back to square one, playing two-dimensional characters. His acting is so genuinely safe that it almost borders on boring.It’s really difficult to emotionally connect when he plays any character and frustrating when it feels like he’s not improving as an actor.

  3. @shadowrain604: Why do you copy your comment and post it to many diferrent website? that’s dump!

  4. Just finished watching DVDs of Fistful of Stances. Worst acting award goes to Kevin Cheng. He seems to have less facial muscles than normal people. His face is stoic!!! Only knows how to frown to represent all emotions.
    I believe ratings were poor in HK cos’ of his awful acting.
    The rest of the cast acted very well, esp Kenneth Ma, Shirley Yeung and Natalie Tong

  5. I don’t think Kevin Cheng is very suitable to play this role to begin with. His speech and mannerisms are too modern. He fares much better in modern series.

    Kenneth Ma is becoming a better actor each day. Give him a few more years and I believe he will be one of TVB’s strongest actors.

  6. I have the same opinion with Jayne. While both Kenneth and Kevin’s style aren’t my cup of tea, I do admit that Kenneth has better versatility than Kevin and will be one of TVB’s strongest actors in the years to come. Yes, Kevin’s looks and mannerism are more suitable for modern times 🙂

  7. While Kevin may not have been the best choice for this series, I think he at least managed to do one thing rather well in that he successfully made a distinction in his portrayal of the father and son.. at least, that’s what i feel..
