Linda Chung and Moses Chan Command Highest Show Fees Among TVB Artists

As 2013 is quickly coming to an end, over 200 artists were seen at the annual TVB Sales Presentation in promoting dramas for the upcoming year. During the program presentation, many actresses wore low-cut dresses in order to catch the eye of sponsors. And while it was revealed that many artists’ compensation for functions and events dropped, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) managed to surpass Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) in commercial value. Riding on the potential TV Queen momentum, Linda’s show price doubled from $60,000 HKD to $120,000 HKD.

Although TVB’s current favourits, Myolie and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) are right behind Linda in earnings, coming in at $100,000 HKD and $80,000 HKD per show respectively – the most notable actress they should look out for is Eliza Sam (岑麗香). In the short time span of three years, the goddess more than tripled her earnings, and is currently reaping in $70,000 HKD per job. Surprisingly, Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) did not even make the list, evidently having been affected by her recent overweight predicament.

Sire Ma (馬賽), who originally would have made the list, drastically received a drop in compensation due to her exposed lesbian scandal with Wang Ziqi (汪子琦). Along with Sire, many of TVB’s rumor magnets and actresses who mostly rely on sex appeal, such as Samantha Ko (高海寧), Koni Lui (呂慧儀), Whitney Hui (許亦妮), and Tracy Ip (葉翠翠) were all replaced with fresher faces like Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎), and Tracy Chu (朱千雪).

Moses Chan Remains on Top

While Linda is considered the top female earner, her salary per appearance does not even stand close to what Moses Chan (陳豪) receives. In first place, his sky-high price is at $200,000 HKD per event, closely followed by Raymond Lam (林峯) at $180,000 HKD and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) at $160,000 HKD.

Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) managed to make the cut this year after his dramatic performance in Brother’s Keeper (巨輪), earning $100,000 HKD per event. Having been in the industry for over 18 years, his continual hard work finally caught the eye of many companies.

Rising fast after his well-received work from Tiger Cubs <飛虎> and L’Escargot <缺宅男女> Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) proved his worth as he came in tenth place.

There are a number of new faces on the list of top-earning artists. It seems as though the current trend to successful self-selling is by possessing a clean and goddess-like image, as nearly half of the actresses fall into this category.

    Ruco is worth more than HKD100,000. Anyway, happy that he’s finally being noticed after all his hard work and good performance.

      I thought Edwin Siu did a better job than Ruco for some reason idk if it’s his role that makes him look like that. How much does Edwin get for functions?

      And I forgot to ask how come everyone is commenting about how low Tavia get paid? How come this article doesn’t speak about Ron or Bosco or Kenneth? How much do they get paid for functions and events? This article didn’t even mention about how much the other important tvb stars get paid like Ron , Bosco , Kenneth , Edwin.

        myolie and ma ming 100k win over boscokate 80k! yes! yes!

        so funny myolie has no hype in hk these years and busier in mainland and still can demand more than kate who has overhype last year! so funny ma ming and ruco finally overthrow bosco from the pedestal! yes yes win!

        @tvbfan because tavia’s low fee of 60k is most shocking and bewildering. like some people said she has all the hype in recent years from tv queen and on call but why can’t she demand the same price like previous tv queen myolie or on call costar ma ming? that means something not appealing with her and hype and tvb promotion alone can’t help if you personally don’t have that commercial appeal!

        @tvbfan look, eliza has higher fee than tavia and rebecca zhu’s fee almost equal to tavia, 55k to 60k

        btw christine kuo has very high fee last year, suddenly not on the list this year? her fee must really very low now!

        Wow but I thought Ron and Bosco was more famous than Kenneth Ma and Ruco. But I always Knew Kate can’t overthrow Myolie spot. Myolie always has been like the first fada beside Charmine and the older fadas.

      • Fox replied:

        Bosco is kinda underrated by Txb (like his frds under 620’s side) but in China market, he definitely has higher fee than Ma Ming and Ruco. So does Ron who also has a career in China (although it’s still limited). Therefore they overall still earn more than Ma Ming and Ruco.

        Kate doesn’t have a career in China like Myolie’s, so overall she won’t earn as much as Myolie. But maybe can compete with Linda who is also only depended on HK market.

        If you don’t see someone in the list, I guess it means tat person can’t make in top 10.

        that’s why ma ming and myolie makes a better couple! they have the same earning in hk of 100k! ma ming should is very humble to keep saying he’s poor everytime! bosco is poor! only 80k hk event fee! who cares about mainland ma ming got 1 million for his famous jackie chan movie although only supporting role! that shows his value!

        kate will never surpass myolie in acting, looks or income. she has no mainland market like myolie and she’s also getting old lately and only care to look great onscreen instead of acting all out. she deserves the cheap 80k per event price!

        Are you referring to the article to say tat Ma Ming received 1 mil for leading role in Jackie Chan’s movie? It was said by Ma Ming himself that he is only supporting and he didn’t receive 1 mil. Jackie Chan’s company also confirmed that 1 mil is too exaggerated, even the leading actor of such movie doesn’t receive that much. It showed his value, lolz.

        Bosco gets 200k/eps for Young detective Dee with 35 eps, equal to 7 mil. Minus the cut-out for Txb, he still pocketed at least 3 mil :P. Can he be poor? He doesn’t need to whine about being poor all the time.

        For Kate, who say she doesn’t have China market? Although she hasn’t appeared in any China series, she appeared in China movies and she has movie deals. Who else among Txb actresses have as many movie deals as her?

        100k HKD/function isn’t tje highest price, so what’s so proud about it, selfiwu?

        Fox what is frds under 620′s side? What Tvb steals 4million dollar from 7million dollar earning wtf tvb. I only thought that tvb would take a small percentage like 15% or 25% never knew they took more than half the actors income from mainland china.

        Txb often takes 50% and the artists also have to pay for their managers. The amount isn’t fixed. It’s up to each contract.

    Moses didnt remain but soared. He jumped from No.3 to No.1 will double fee. The power of children :).

    The world changed, ladies often got more than men in Txb but now the highest paid actress is lower than the 3rd ranked man.

      I’m surprised that Moses is paid higher than Raymond. I always thought Raymond has the highest fee since he’s like the HK Justin Beiber. Yup maybe having a child and presenting himself as a loving husband and father rose the price and capture housewives heart.

      I’m sure Raymond fees can pass Moses if he has a child and marry Karena and show himself as a loving family man image.

      I can imagine Sire Ma’s price plummet down due to her recent bad scandal.

        It must be changing year after year depending on what is hot at the moment and who is getting the promotion. That explains Linda at the top since everyday we get news of her to be the TV Queen. The most surprising is Tavia’s low price since OC2 is a highly successful series for these two years and she won the TV Queen last year.

        Sire goes down, but this year sexy band also has an increase. Koni Lui, Samantha Ko and Tracy Ip all fell.

        Moses has always been top 3. He also had couple events with Bernice, so with Aimee wouldn’t make that much of a difference. With the baby coming, I think he had a lot of sponsors and such.

        He had a lot of couple functions after he started to date Aimee. And now with the baby coming, there’s another market opening up for him. I know he always did quite well – but I believe some of that also came from being a “couple” with Bernice. In any case, yes, he’s always been in top but now he’s past even LF whom I always thought was the golden goose of TVB.

        @advo: He is and still is. He also has a raise from 160k to 180k as listed in tat article. It was reported that he gets 400k in functions with singing in HK and double that amount to 1 mil in oversea market. Without singing, in oversea he gets about 400-500k. However he refused to use couple power to go function with his gfs or the fee can get to 1 mil in HK for both.

      Tavia’s fee is very low for a TV Queen and for having the popular anniversary series OC2 this year. Only 60,000. Less than Eliza. Being active in many series this year and having a healthy cute image helps Eliza.

        Hm Selfiwu isn’t calling Tavia unworthy a little too harsh? But I get it here, it’s questionable that Tavia who is still an active top fadan and has a popular anniversary series this year commands that low of a price. She also has the sequel to AGWTC. I can understand if she’s one of those who only comes back for one series per year and is not in a highly popular series or anniversary series such as Esther Kwan or Niki Chow, but this isn’t the case. Given her situation and popularity and hype of her series this year, why does Tavia’s market value lower when compared to her peers?

        You attack any artiste the moment you get the chance to, don’t you? When Tavia does better than Myolie, you go all defensive and continually praise Myolie and when Myolie does better than Tavia (i.e. this commercial value chart), you repeatedly step on Tavia and call her cheap? The only one who’s cheap here is you. I’d like to see people pay you that much to appear at some random event.

        Anyways, I’m surprised that Eliza is earning just below 3 of the 4 fadans. 😮

      The press really love the couple hype, but her relationship with Him Law is a bit… inappropriate. What with some people being sexist and all, since she is older than Him. If she got together with Kenneth, she would probably be boosted too. What I really don’t get is Eliza. All she has is her looks, her acting is seriously bad. And she’s paid so much? Looks are really everything in this world.

Jaynestars just translates news articles so people who don’t know how to read Chinese can be informed. This is nothing compared to those HK forums.

        Considering the rent levels in HK, I have no doubts about property being really expensive. Now that you mention it, I do seem to recall that she wants to buy (for her family?). Obviously, it is also because of TVB that she is able to command so high rates, but it just seemed crazy to be so frugal that you needed to eat prop food. It sounds a little incongruous, but then we do know TVB take big cuts.

        ironically like some people said tavia with her exposures in on call and on call 2 and with fresh impact from tv queen last year fail to demand better price than eliza who never get a lead role yet 😛

        TVB have 80% of artists that can’t act well but they are popular because of the age (young) and looks. Same goes with HK singers…. 80% of them can’t sing but are singers that are popular. All I’m saying is that’s business and reality. I personally rather watch a pretty actress than an ugly one.

She always has smart-alecky comments to make about them which embarrasses them but they just have to tolerate the comments since it’s an interview and it wont be nice to rebut her. But she’s really different in interviews with veterans like Damien Lau cos she knows that he wont put up with her smarty comments as she’s junior compared to him. So in a way, she sucks up to the right people and 狗眼看人低。

        Your comments are so right to the point. That is exactly how I felt about Tavia Yeung. She did exactly what you said in your post during interviews.

So in a way, she sucks up to the right people and 狗眼看人低。”

        I never liked her ever since watching those interviews. She interrupted some junior or “green leaf” artistes during one of the TVB Anniversary ceremonies.

        I also watched a link recently, posted on TVB forum, showing that Tavia was “making a face” at Nancy Wu, then turned her face and smiled at Kate Tsui. It seemed that she wanted to get Kate’s agreement to boycott Nancy Wu. The video clip was taken at a TVB Anniversary ceremony.

        Disagree about Myolie with her interviews. She’s pretty neutral. Doesn’t leak out info but neither are the responses smooth. So it’s very neutral.

        Charmaine is a master mind. Like a calculative master mind. She knows what to say and what not to say plus her answers are actually informative. It’s not close-ended. But I think that is just a skill that you learn to survive in the industry.

        Tavia, I like her. I hear her interviews and she’s just ‘loud’ and speaks. Lol. Nothing harmful. I do feel the dislike that goes towards her regarding her ‘interviewing skills’ is nothing more but a back up reasoning to dislike her.

        @Sandcherry:
        That gif you mentioned where you see Tavia making a face at Nancy Wu with Kate Tsui.. ehh never rely on those gifs. I learn a valuable lesson when following Korean Girl Group T-ARA where several gifs were made by netizens to back up their point how one member was bullied out of the group. It was a horrible misunderstanding. Those gifs are evil. Netizens are evil. Of course netizens who fabricate stuff such as gifs and such to prove their points are the ones im referring to.

        I personally saw Tavia’s reaction on TV at a TVB Anniversary ceremony. One of the actresses (not a 1st lead actress) was asked to say something and she “butt” in. It was very rude of her to do it at such a big occasion, especially that actress was not a senior one. She should respect other people and let them speak for themselves. She always “butts” in at any interviews, except the one with Damien Lau. It is very hard for me to respect her and say she is a classy actress.

        Agree totally with you on Charmaine Sheh about her interviews. She is always marvellous and polite. I think she is one of the best artistes in TVB in interviews (long or short).

        Well, Myolie Wu is a bit diplomatic, but at least she is not rude or mean.

        I never liked Tavia Yeung. She can be considered “casual and friendly” to other people, but not to me. She was very mean and made fun of Ruco Chan at one of the interviews after the airing of “The Other Truth” because Ruco Chan was not popular then.

She has no repect for those who are her juniors and has a habit of butting in with some comments which she and her fans think make her look cute and friendly when in reality, she’s actually putting those people down in a roundabout way. I also watched those interviews you mentioned and arrived at the same opinion as you. Her bubbliness and friendliness are totally fake.

        So since I am not a fan and I do by her friendliness, and for years there hasn’t been any negative interpersonal news between Tavia and co-workers which speaks volumes.

        But I understand where both of you are coming from. Because when I see my younger clients speak loudly, interrupting their elders and etc, I automatically assume those young adults have no manners and are nasty. That’s human. That’s okay. But the important thing is to keep an open mind.

She doesn’t seem to be the sort who will complain or who will express a stand on anything. Doesn’t make her an airhead but rather just makes her incredibly safe and incredibly boring.

        It doesn’t matter if people think highly of Charmaine Sheh or not. Personally I think she is pretty smart in her interviews. She will not offend other persons, and still keeps herself very classy and professional. Sometimes an artiste has to behave that way in order to have less scandals and rumours.

        For example, Tavia Yeung and Kenneth Ma talked nothing but making money at their interviews. More gossips and rumours would easily be generated by tabloids.

        Sorry to butt in but I think a true friend or even a friendly person won’t say something like “I don’t know him well” when commenting about a scandal of a friend/colleague and after that few months (when the scandal was calm), changed to “I’ll protect him because he is my friend”. A friend/friendly person also won’t hope a friend to lose because she hasn’t won. A friend/friendly person won’t badmouth another person when s/he isn’t around.

        Perhaps this photoshot should be fair to pull out anyone lower than 100k :P. From 120k onward for example. Than it won’t be unfair to Ruco and Ron.

        @Fox, I’m curious, who are you talking about?
        @sandcherry, she didn’t do it to Damien cos he’ll not stand for her nonsense and he’s the Big Brother who’s well respected, she knows who she can “bully”, who won’t talk back at her.

        I know …….re Damien Lau’s case. Tavia Yeung is pretty snobbish and surely knows how to handle cases like this. She only does it to artistes who are junior than she.

        Sandcherry – Many times you have said you are older than the people on this site but you are most likely one of those who always use being older than the other person as an excuse for maturity. I have been skimming through this forum for a while and I realize your comments are extremely contradicting and full of anal. Are you really an adult or an “old” adult which you claim to be? Or are you just trying to project that identity onto someone else hoping they’ll believe your “wisdom”? Because you consistently sound like a warped teenager.

        Dear Amanda:
        It is none of your business to know if I am an adult or an older adult. I don’t even recall saying much about my age and identity.

        You must be a diehard fan of Tavia Yeung and you are so upset when you see people criticizing your idol. I can easily understand it.

        I think all of us here have the right to comment on any artiste, either good or not. If you don’t like to read mine, don’t bother. Perhaps you are a young kid who cannot stand having your idols criticized. If an artiste is a public figure, he/she does have the “privilege” of being criticized by his/her audience.

        Moreover, I was only stating the facts, and shared by other readers, about Tavia Yeung. I did not make them up myself.

        You are more than welcome to praise your idols if you wish. I can surely accept other people’s comments no matter they are praises or nasty words.

    Tavia is actually pretty . I think she has less endorsements bc she is not from pageants. Eliza and Linda have the sweet girl next door look and tavia a different kind of pretty. U can’t really compare them. When they posess diff auras. I think tavia is elegant compared to the two.

    • sandcherry replied:

      Personally I think Tavia’s smile is rather bitter, and not pleasant. Therefore, she is excellent for those cry scenes.

      In terms of elegance, everyone has different expectations. I find that Fala Chan is pretty, pleasant and elegant among the top 5 fadans.

        I also think fala is elegant . I would put fala and tavia in the same elegance group out of the fadans.

        Did fala or niki make the list?? I can’t read Chinese so I don’t know who made the list! Lol help please anyone :)?

        Fala and Nike were not on the list. Fala left TVB in May and Niki is not their contractual artiste. Probably they should not be included in the list.

        Fala’s “twin sister” Rebecca Zhu made the list, 550k, only lower than last year “queen” 50k. So if Fala is still in, she would make the list.

        Elegant club in Txb has Shirley, Sonija, Jessie Sum and Rebecca Zhu to me. They are really elegant, look wise and so does their actions.

    Funny how Tavia doesn’t make that much per show when she always talks about how much she wants to make money in articles… perhaps she always talks about it because she needs it? Must suck to be a relatively poor TV Queen… It would be alright if she was into the fame but she’s very money minded. She must be so frustrated.
    In an article somewhere she said she doesn’t think her career is at its peak yet because she hasnt ventured into mainland… but does she have a good fan base in mainland? Last time i checked her show fee was very low and she played supporting roles.

      The more an artiste acts in Mainland China, the more popularity he/she will achieve. It just takes times.

        But she still has a low starting fee for a TVB Fadan, right? I thought the reason people like winning BA is because it raises their starting fees in Mainland too.

    I don’t agree that great acting will last longer in this industry (as in making more money! ) Look at all the old actresses now that act well but where are there??? They have no functions, no commercials, no exposures at all. How much do they make? This includes great actress like Ada, Esther, sheren, kenix, Joey meng, yoyo mung, etc… Do u consider them lasting long???

    What do u mean by last long anyways? Vivian chow who can’t act well but have the looks … still surviving with functions, and commercials for her age which is close the 45-50 years old. That is last long!

    • sheldon replied:

      Most of those actress that you mentioned above are now married,and that they are looking after their kids and family, therefore, less exposure is very common. Now Sheren, in either HK or in mainland, her popularity is always high, especially in mainland, her focus now is in mainland.

      Youth does not last long.

    This is just the show price commanded in HK. Im certain Ray, Kevin, Myolie, Bosco, Ron command a higher price in mainland China, which is evident from their commercial activities in mainland. Linda and Moses only attend HK events.

    when the same list was published around the time tavia won TV queen last year, i believe it said that her asking price was impacted by her nose and the car shaking incident. So if the momentum of her TV queen win isnt enough to increase her price, i dont see how her acting skills alone (as praised by her fans) can help increase her price. She looks funny with that nose, cant make jokes except those crude $$$ ones, not surprised advertisers arent interested in hiring her. I am amused by her fans always asking her to leave tvb. If she doesnt stay in tvb where can she go? If even sheren cant get good leading roles in mainland. What more pinocchio?

      @nicole well said. tavia must be impacted from the car shock with him him that although tvb give her the tv queen and make on call 2 anniversary series she fail to be appealing to organizers or land mainland lead roles.

      maming is in same series with tavia from last year and this year and only win most favourite but got his lowest price rise to 100,000

      but tavia with the same series and tv queen title only got 60,000

      simple, no appeal to advertisers

    The only female HK artist which is successful now is Michelle Ye in mainland and the rest of the Hk females artists who has gone there none of them are leading at all cuz first of all they have problems speaking fluently in mandarin secondly they can’t compete with the china plastic dolls. Don’t expect all these artists like Molie ; kate ,travia or Linda etc to go to mainland to be successful Better stay in HK. Cus China is not your market.

      Didn’t Charmaine Sheh get lead roles in Mainland China? All the voices are dubbed anyway, so it does not really matter if they can speak good Mandarin or not. I believe that Kevin Cheng can speak good Mandarin since he lived in Taiwan for many years, but his voice was dubbed in “Bu Bu Jin Xin”.

        Charmaine has.

        Every Chinese series have dub. Not only HK/Taiwan artists are dubbed but also Chinese speakers. Yes, tat’s why good Mando dun affect much. However with good Mando, artists can communicate with others better or understand the orders of directors.

        But are her series getting any noise? You can make more money in the Mainland market, but that doesn’t mean you’re popular. Success would be like Sammul and Kevin. Both are trying to keep up with the momentum after their hit dramas. Heck, even Michelle Ye has a few hit dramas, but she’s in a different league.

        Her series generated a fair amount of noises. Her role was well liked in Sammul’s most popular series Beauty’s Schemes. If Sammul with Beauty’s Schemes is considered as successful, then Myolie is also successful.

    I remember in an article long time ago said that Wayne gained 10 million that year but Wayne said that it was not true because he did not get that much. I don’t believe in the article because no artist wants to say about how much they get for an event, just media make up the news .
