Regarding the recent mass resignation wave at TVB, Raymond Lam (林峰) smiled and said, “As long as Virginia Lok (樂易玲) remains at TVB, I will stay as well! Artists can make their own choice. I have been at TVB for numerous years and have witnessed much turbulence.” Raymond said that he knew Ms. Lok very well personally, however she will also help other artists. In Raymond’s mind, both Ms. Lok and Stephen Chan (陳志雲) were good executives at TVB.
Asked whether he was staying at TVB due to his “biological son” status, Raymond noted, “I am not the only biological son.” Since he just renewed his TVB management contract, Raymond revealed that his contract will not expire until a long time. Raymond praised TVB for developing his performance career. Regarding accusations that TVB was stingy, Raymond spoke up for the company, “Large institutions need to balance their resources.” Asked whether Raymond was receiving $150,000 Yuan per episode while filming in mainland China, Raymond laughed and said that was his price much earlier!

Bosco revealed that he still had a multi-year contract with TVB. He felt that the text message he received was forwarded [to many artists], but he did not respond to it. He was uncertain whether girlfriend, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), received the same message. “The message was general in content. Perhaps his subordinate distributed it. I do not know whether Myolie received the same message.”
