Ruco Chan (陈展鹏), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Louis Yuen (阮兆祥), Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Leanne Li ( 李亞男), Jason Chan (陳智燊), and Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) appeared at the costume fitting for new Producer Amy Wong’s (王心慰) TVB series, Chok Family <Chok氣一族> yesterday. In the series, Ruco and Kristal will be portraying a married couple. Prior to filming, the pair discussed how to deliver their onscreen performance, upon which they shared similar views.

Kristal and Ruco had known each other since working at ATV previously, however Chok Family will be their first partnership. Asked whether there will be kissing scenes, Kristal said, “I am a very open person.” She joked that the reason she acted was to take advantage of the opportunity to kiss different actors. Asked whether her  husband, Chapman To (杜汶泽), would mind, Kristal said, “He will be happy for me. I had kissed Louis Yuen in a previous drama. If I were to kiss Ruco Chan this time, that is a big improvement! My husband has collaborated with numerous young actresses in the past, even kissing Dada Chen (陈静) and Fiona Sit (薜凯琪)!”

Filming a comedy for the first time, Ruco Chan said,” I have a humorous side. It would not be considered acting if I were to portray myself. An actor should try to do different roles.” Ruco indicated that he hoped to achieve new sparks with the cast of Chok Family.

Jayne: Ruco passed up Big Eunuch in order to film Chok Family. I think TVB has difficulty juggling the schedule of their male leads…thus he was pulled into Chok Family instead. I think portraying an eunuch may have been more interesting and perhaps a more rare acting challenge.

Louis Yuen and Kristal Tin are good in comedy…I also find the Indian actor to be quite funny.

      I think TVB realized that they can’t really use the word “chok” anymore without having people associate it with the new definition, so at the costume fitting, they just called it “Amy Wong’s New Drama” instead.

      I’m soo happy that TVB is finally putting some effort into promoting the younger generation! 😀 It’s a good sign. And the guy ur talking about is a guy from K4 from YSNS, i think. Is his name Brian Chu? And yea, the twin is Daniel Chau from The Voice.

      The Dance of Chang’an (or something lol) is an ancient comedy, I think. WAB2, Back to the Three Kingdoms, The King Makers, Queens of Diamonds and Hearts and The Great Eunuch.

      Pretty sure there’s 1 or 2 more but those are all I remember. 😀

      Yeah, there’s still quite a lot more coming this upcoming year. The Great Eunuch and WAB2 will most likely be aired during the anniversary time slot…

      But I rather TVB hold back on producing some of their costume/period dramas. They should save their budget so they will have enough money to bring their production overseas, or anywhere that has actual scenery! lol or if that doesn’t work, they should work on making their TVB studios more realistic looking…

        TVB has no budget when they film T.I.T.S. 2 this coming Spring.

    So why was Raymond Lam not cast in this? Its ‘his’ word after all. They should have just made a series with the same name with only Raymond. 43 mins of him sitting in a chair and some soft piano music in the background… ahhhhhh… now that will show City Telecom that TVB can do ‘different’ too.

      Yeah, he should be in a series called “chok” where he is a singer. In the series he can wear his rapper gear and his new songs include chok2, chok3, chok4…

      TVB will most likely change the name the word chok has become silly.

        Well, i suppose it could be rapper gear for “white” guys e.g. Eminem during the 90s, LOL

        Anyway I can agree with the hip hop definition, satisfied himesama 😛

        Rap was made by “black” guys and when Eminem started every ppl bash him because of this. Now they have to accept his good rap and rapper can be any skin color.

        The colorful large outfit r dancer’s now.

        Thanks for calling me himesama.
