Lee Lik Chi on Kevin Cheng and Raymond Lam: “They are Not Good Enough!”

Hong Kong director and writer Lee Lik Chi (李力持) did not think twice to make disparaging comments on Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) and Raymond Lam (林峯), saying they are not of the caliber yet to command the reported high remuneration in China.

“China is not the same as Hong Kong. Actors such as Kevin Cheng and Raymond Lam are not worth that kind of price in China. Now, Sun Honglei (孫紅雷) – that is what 500,000 RMB is worth!” Kevin Cheng currently commands 500,000 RMB per television episode in the mainland market, according to news reports.

Kevin Cheng’s Mandarin is Not Good Enough

Lee Lik Chi revealed that Kevin Cheng was initially cast in mainland drama, The Four Scholars of Jiangnan <江南四大才子>, however due to conflict in schedules, Hawick Lau (劉愷威) was cast instead. Lee Lik Chi praised Hawick’s commitment, “Hawick has worked in China for many years. Yet, to play a convincing role, he actually seeks a teacher from the Central Academy of Drama to coach him in his Mandarin pronunciation.” Lee Lik Chi’s approval of Hawick’s decision hinted at a lack of good Mandarin communication skills in Hong Kong actors. He stressed that to do well in China, an actor needs to, first and foremost, be able to speak Mandarin reasonably well.

Asked about Kevin Cheng’s Mandarin skills, Lee Lik Chi said, “You go and ask him yourself. Anyway, if you cannot speak good Mandarin, how can you communicate and get along with your team mates, not to mention demanding a fee of 500,000 RMB!” Revealing that Kevin has a habit of requesting for change of scripts, Lee Lik Chi scorned, “It’s not an actor’s call to change scripts. Unless of course, you’re someone like Sun Honglei!”

Not afraid that Kevin will be offended, Lee Lik Chi added, “I am not even afraid of Stephen Chow (周星馳), why would I be afraid of Kevin Cheng?” Lee further added that Kevin only had one drama, Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心>, that was extremely popular in China.

Raymond Is Not Yet Up to Standard

Regarding Raymond Lam, Lee Lik Chi said, “He should be able to command a fee of 500,000 RMB per episode, since TVB said so themselves. Raymond’s future looks good, as his language skills are okay. But it is not based on what awards he has won, which makes it sound like an electronics salesman’s pitch, especially when the singing is out of tune.”

Great Admiration for Stephen Chow

Referring to the recent media report on Stephen Chow burning his friendships due to financial controversies, Lee Lik Chi said, “Stephen and I parted ways, but we are still on good terms. Actually, so what if he’s mean, as long as he has talents? Furthermore, only an unscrupulous person can make a laughingstock out of other people.”

Stephen Chow’s Journey to the West <西遊:降魔篇> will open in cinemas in February 2013. Lee Lik Chi foresees that with a strong cast, it may even break the 1 billion RMB box office mark, even beating Jackie Chan’s (成龍)  CZ12 <十二生肖>.

    Jayne,

    Do you have the full article or clip for this? I’d like to read more in depth about what Lee said about Raymond…because I don’t understand the relationship between his “singing out of tune” compared to his value in China as an actor.

      Raina,
      The article source is cited above. From Ming Pao, Lee Lik Chi said about Raymond:

      “香港演員別浪費氣力,普通話都未講得好,那有這麼高價錢?你的確可以配音,但其他演員會歧視你。林有50萬元一集?我當然覺得『好堅』,因為無自己講,應該有前途,他語言方面可以,但不是你得過什麼獎,這樣講的話只是電器推銷員,連唱歌都走音。”

      He’s basically saying that while Raymond’s Mandarin is good and has won awards, however the singing is out of tune.

        Thank you Jayne for the clarification. I was scratching my head because I originally interpreted it as “Raymond is singing out of tune that is why he isn’t worth the amount he gets for his dramas per episode.”

    Wow, I never even heard of this Lee Lik Chi guy before now. I looked him up on the internet http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0497758/.

    He really has not done so much with his own career except for having some success by attaching himself with stephen chow.

    I can’t stand it when someone who has not had a great career themselves feels the need to critique other people.

        Raymond sells his music and his voice. You don’t need to be a professional in that field to offer some critique… you just need to listen… If LLC was trying to pass it off as a critic’s review in some music magazine, now that would be a different matter.

        But that guy’s right! Ray keeps on screwing up his live performances by either going out of tune or forgetting the lyrics. If Ray was an american singer, then that would be ok, but this is HK and we like good live performances and if a singer can’t sing live, he/she should not be a singer.

        Actually, critics should know the basic fundamentals of singing 101 in order to give constructive criticisms. Put it this way, though it has become the norm to “criticize” people for their acting, singing, but how many of them actually have the credentials for it? Many have long forgotten that if they don’t have basic knowledge in a certain field, facts, experiences etc, they’re only voicing opinions, no where should it be classified as criticisms.

        The JSG End of being naive performance is that terrible? I watched the full show and it isnt that terrible comparing to some other performances. Forgetting lyric is one of his characteristic and it dun affect his live skill or singing. YanYanKong, maybe you are making too big deal of a chance. Or its the only chance for you to attack so you have to repeat it times? I guess. Most of time he dun sing off tune or off key, why you dun mention?

  5. P. Tan says:

    This Lee Lik Chi, whoever, sounds spiteful to vent his criticism on Kevin and Raymond. Of course, Kevin’s just been on the mainland scene for not so long, besides, their voices are all dubbed, so what’s with the language problem? If Kevin had to speak Mandarin in a series I am quite sure he would make sure that he also would hire an expert to make sure his Mandarin is perfect. Also, one has not heard that he demands 500,000 per episode. He may command 500,000 which is quite different.

      I wouldn’t say spiteful. His words just sound more harsh in print. Lee Lik Chi is a friend of a boss I used to work for. He’s commenting on them from a business perspective which is no surprise because film-making is a business.

  6. Raina says:

    Personally, I feel Kevin have never improved. I first saw him in The Legendary Siblings starring Jimmy Lin and Alec Su, and I thought even till this day he never really improved. But I must say the man has charisma on stage and screen, so perhaps that makes up for everything? I’m certainly not taking away any of his successes because I do believe certain people make their way to stardom just solely on hard work/effort, which I respect.

    As for Raymond, I can see he halted his acting career for his music, therefore most improvements were made in the latter. However, Raymond definitely has the ability to continue and improve, acting wise. Though the man is 33, I don’t think he’s reached his peak. In due time, he’ll show what else he can bring to the table.

    Though Kevin Cheng’s Mandarin may not be up the standard in Mainland China, his Mandarin is not that bad. Kevin lived in Taiwan for a number of years, and he should be a lot better in Mandarin than any other artistes, such as Charmaine Sheh, Ada Choi, Myolie Wu, Bosco Wong, etc. I am not sure about Raymond Lam as his families are Mainlanders and he was brought up there.

        I like Taiwanese’s Mandarin though, very soft and gentle. I heard that the Mandarin in Beijing is very harsh. I personally don’t speak Mandarin, so I am not in a position to comment.

      • Raina replied:

        I agree with sandcherry. Taiwanese mandarin is much smoother and a lot easier on the ears compared to mainland china’s mandarin. Their sentences comes out boggled and often times, I have no idea what theyre saying because of how hard they try to enunciate the tones, especially the third tone. But I guess it is all subjective.

        Have not listened to Kevin’s Mandarin so can’t comment on him but Raymond Lam’s Mandarin is excellent.

        I’m with Funn Lim – Qiong yau’s series mandarin is ok. The dubber of Ruby Lin’s HZGG Zhi Wei did an excellent job -elevated Zhi Wei by several notches. What a lovely, crystal clear voice!!

        I haven’t not watched any recent Taiwan idol dramas but have watched several Kangxi Lai le talk/game shows and I dislike the Taiwanese coy way of speaking with their drawn out ‘ye’ to every sentence.

        And yes, Beijing mandarin is lovely if not too extreme with the tongue rolling.

        And good dubbing actually elevated the characters in the series. Baidu netizens praised the past Mandarin dubbers (but bash the current newer ones) for TVB siu sang and fadans.

        I’m personally baffled that he criticised Kevin’s Mandarin but praised Hawick considering the latter’s Mandarin is horrible even to my beginner’s ear.

        LF’s Mandarin is obvious excellent given his upbringing, so the guy criticises his singing instead… which have absolutely no relation to what he should be able to command for acting.

        I do agree with him that actors going to Mainland should be able to speak Mandarin in order to communicate, but since they are dubbed, it hardly needs to be perfect. Even if HK people demands it of people who come to HK.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      Yea, Kevin’s mandarin is not too bad. It is a lot better than many others from HK as Sandcherry mentioned. Ray’s definately should be good since he was born in China and all. Ray knows Taiwanese as well.

      I like tha taiwanese idol series accents way more than mainland ones, although I have more of a Beijing accent. But I think it also depends on who speaks it too..Some sound really harsh and whiny while some don’t sound so bad. However, those dubb voices are really harsh for the most part.

        I generally find that the bad actors in mainland idol dramas tend to be pop singers/Taiwanese starlets. On the whole though, the average level of competence in the mainland acting scene is the highest in the Chinese speaking world (barring anomalies like Liu Yi Fei) and the ones who hit it big like Sun Honglei, Jiang Wen, etc. are just out of this world.

  16. Little fishy says:

    Well, as much as its a harsh comment, it’s true. Just recently saw mysterious in the palace? Kelvin’s acting was quite bad, the main actress is pretty but acting is quite bad, the plot line is just basically a rip off a realm of conscience(?) from tvb with kelvin and Charmaine. Only watch 4-5 episode and I basically knew who the bad guy was -.- needless to say, bad acting, bad plot (no originality whatsoever), and Idk how on earth they manage 35 episode -.- cos i skip to the end and don’t feel like I miss much >_> and yes, so many cliche >_<
    Anyway, kelvin's acting seriously hasn't improved. That's however doesn't mean he should asking for less per episode, after he's only human, and he has the same 24hrs like us all.
    Raymond is not bad, I haven't managed to like any of his other roles/character, something about them that are slightly irritating, over acting perhaps. The only role I like so far is the one with tavia where he was a smart cookie xD. The dude comment on Raymond's singing should probably interpret as his singing is not great, so he should focus more on his acting rather than his singing

    This guy is not making much sense to me in regards to his comments on Raymond. Since he was making statements on acting and how undeserving it is for both Raymond and Kevin to command high remuneration then he should stick to talking about acting and not make comments on Raymond’s singing. They are two different areas. How is being able to act and having good language skills related to him singing off key? Is he poking fun at Raymond’s singing?

    PS: I saw Kevin Cheng on the popular Chinese variety show Happy Camp to promote BBJX and found his Mandarin as atrocious as claimed in this article. They guy couldn’t even finish a complete sentence.

        hahahahaha. seeing your comments reduces ur credibility as you only condemn and attack me with all sorts of words without basis. Shows how immature you are. the thing is sun hong lei doesn’t even film dramas, he’s already a leading actor in movies, while lf hasn’t even make a breakthrough in movies. Didn’t you know this fact? Now, one quote to describe you, and i quote from you “what a noobest on earth seriously”

    How foolish is this Li Lik chi to command on the two actors! A value of an actor is complicated.. its all about charm and star quality. I would not expect a famous foreign star to speak the local language 100%, I would appreciate the actor to carry his own style, like I would not expect a Hollywood star to speak Canto when he films in HK!

    Who cares whether their mandarin skills are good. Not like the audience ever hears their real voices. They can speak English for all I care. Won’t affect anything on screen.

    Uhm, after reading this, I blv to Mr. Lee, language is the most important thing to an actor. I bet he will disagree with Tony Leung since Tony Leung commented that acting can surpass the barrier of language.

    How is Mr. Lee’s Mando skill, anybody know?

    One possible reason why Mr. Lee lashed out at Kevin is this. Kevin had asked for script writers to hand in their scripts and Mr. Lee was one of them. Kevin said that he had read and rejected it.That was also why Mr. Lee cricized Kevin for correcting scripts all the time. Kevin’s aim is to try and see that the scripts for his TV series were well and not haphazardly written. It has been confirmed that he and Yuan Hong will not be BBJX2 but they will instead be in a very anticipated series, Hua Xu Yin. Hopefully that will turn out tops.
