The finale for TVB drama, House of Harmony and Vengeance <耀舞長安>, will be airing this Friday, June 8th. Cast members, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), and Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華) promoted  the 30-episode drama yesterday, hoping to boost ratings for its final week of broadcast.

Since House of Harmony and Vengeance aired, it has averaged between 29 to 30 points in its first four weeks of broadcast in Hong Kong. Myolie Wu considered the ratings to be above average. Bobby Au Yeung hoped to treat the cast to a dinner while watching the finale together. Unfortunately, Linda Chung will be unable to attend since she was currently filming new TVB series, Blissful Ferris Wheel <幸福摩天輪>. 

Myolie Wu Gains 10 Pounds

Since winning the TV Queen title last year, Myolie Wu’s commercial value has increased. Filming more mainland dramas and product endorsements, Myolie debuted on the 2012 Forbes China Celebrity 100 list in the 69th position. Good food and a less hectic filming schedule in mainland China may have attributed to her recent 10-pound weight gain. Myolie joked, “My bottom has rounded out! For 30 years, I never had a pat pat!” However, she maintained that her chest size did not increase despite the weight gain.

Linda Chung Retains Practical Values

Linda Chung’s quiet millionare status was revealed recently, as she was exposed to be the owner of two properties in Hong Kong and one  luxury home in Canada. It was also rumored that she was straddled with hefty medical bills due to her elder sister’s unstable emotional state earlier, causing her to be even more frugal. Linda clarified that her elder sister was healthy.

Regarding her well known frugality despite her millionaire status, Linda replied, “I do not have a maid at home. I even shop for my own groceries! I am very practical. Frugality is a virtue!”

Jayne: Perhaps House of Harmony and Vengeance has no new material, thus its ratings has been mediocre. Bobby Au Yeung has traditionally excelled in this genre, so maybe he can pull miracle ratings for the drama when it airs this week.

    I think it’s a good thing that she gained some weight. These HK actresses are just too thin. Hollywood has the same problems but at these there are a some actresses that are proud that they are a size 6. HK actresses probably average a size 0.

    Even if she gained 10 pounds…that is probably not going to be very much on her taller frame haha

      I don’t know how to like the series, there’s practically no climax in the whole series. I’m still waiting for something interesting to happen.

      The story development wasn’t too great and even Bobby can’t pull this series out of the slump.

    I absolutely cannot stand Myolie and Linda’s storyline in House. It’s so annoying. Every time I watch these two together I want to slap both of them in the face – one for being so stupid, and the other for being even more stupid. The only sane characters in the show are Bobby, Bobby’s family, Angela Tong, Oscar Leung, and Yoyo Chen. Even the Sire/William/JJ triangle is annoying, but I must say that William and Sire make such a cute couple.

    Linda is a very good girl who does not even have a maid at home (there is always a maid in every household in Hong Kong). It is almost unreal for someone with her fame and wealth. She is a typical Canadian born girl.

      In Hong Kong, even normal people (not movie stars) have a maid too? LOL!
      Wow, they even more rich than me. I am in USA, and me and my husband, and our son do not have a maid, LOL!

        What’s the big deal about not having maid. The only reason why there are not many using maids in the West is because most people can’t afford it. If you are a middle class in Asia and can afford it, why not?

        Do u mow your own lawn? Maid service in hk is like paying the gardener here. Cheap and convenient.

        In HK it is usually Filipino maids right?

        US I believe don’t utilise maids. In HK, any upper middle class and above would have maids. In Malaysia, even middle class have maids, usually Indonesian. Sometimes I disagree with all those rules regarding Indonesian maids. I mean you don’t impose those on expatriates and shouldn’t we see them as expatriates?

      The purpose of a maid is to help you with chores if you can’t do it. For example, you and your husband have to work from 8AM to 6PM and you are having a 90 year old mother at home (she can’t do anything) or a 1 year old kid (not old enough to go to the kiddergarden), hiding a maid will help you to take care for your mother or little kid.

      It’s better to say about how they treat the maids rather than to say that having no maid is good.

      Maybe Linda is afraid her maid will go psycho like sonija’s maid did.

      Or maybe she doesn’t need a maid b/c Philip is her man servant. 😛

      Most who have maid have families in HK. Linda only got herself to care for. No need maid so no maid. Logical?

        No maid, but still can afford part time cleaners to clean up her apartment. Those gentle, softy hands didnt shown she does housechores.

      linda lives by herself, no family to look after so she doesn’t need a maid. If she was ‘such a good typical canadian born girl’ you say she is, then she shouldn’t need an assistant to help carry her stuff around right? coz she’s got 2 hands to carry herself. but no, she’s like every other artist that needs an assistant, so she’s no different from anyone else.

      in other words, having a maid does not make you a ‘bad girl’ and not having a maid does not make you a ‘good girl’. just depends on individual preference and necessities.

    So does she expect another award? 10 pounds and it is news? Slow news day? Anyway I like her in House of Harmony and Vengeance, and I haven’t liked her for a long time but House of Harmony and Vengeance is an insult to my intelligence.

      If she gains another 90 pounds then she deserves the meaningless TVB award, LOL.

      TVB doesn’t care since the monkeys will continue to watch their intelligent series. Prolly thinking, get the production costs down and at the same time maintaining their revenues.

    Hey Jayne, I wonder where you watch TVB dramas? Sources such as MegaVideo is now blocked 🙁 Do you buy the DVD or are there other online sources?

  11. It’s nice to hear that Linda Chung does not have a maid. It’s rare for middle class HK’ers not to have one. I don’t have one and many think I am nuts or cheap. I am neither just I like my privacy.

    Jayne,

    I can tell you why House of Harmony and Vengeance has mediocre ratings. Because it is at best mediocre. It has good promise, with Bobby and Myolie having this really good chemistry and they were funny and Oscar’s story is intriguing and all that but after a while the series just went suicidal by being stupid. I can explain no other way unless I want to by writing paragraphs on how stupid it is. I hope the ending will be logical even if fantasist type. My theory is Bobby’s identity is exposed, Myolie becomes who she is supposed to be, Bobby becomes “fu-ma-yeh”, Linda ends up with Evergreen, and well, everybody gathers around and clap and dance sort of thing.

    Myolie is getting prettier and prettier nowadays. I like her smile!
    Did Myolie actually have plastic surgery at her jawbone, nose and eyes? I am watching Triumph in the skies again lately and realised she looks very different in the series compared to now, her jawbone is more obvious in Triumph in the skies?

  17. aptos says:

    Having the right maid can be problematic…loss of privacy…having to be decent around the maid or tabloid gossip will start to help the maids personal cashflow…prying eyes or thieving hands of maids may occur…of course, adjusting to the personality of the maid…having a maid can be more of a nuisance than assistance. Time to do chores can be prioritized in a busy schedule. I don’t buy the argument that people work too much not to have time to clean and cook. If one works less outside but concentrate more of cooking and cleaning inside, then one saves money on the maid’s salary.

    She looks so differed compared to how she was when she first started. Her acting is fine, however her characters always annoy me. Like in her current one (the royal dancer)she has betrayed her friend but still tries to deny it.
