Sonija Kwok and Sunny Chan Make Comeback in “The Record of Fifth Kai City”

After giving birth in May, new mother, Sonija Kwok (郭羡妮), will make her comeback performance in The Record of Fifth Kai City <初五啟市錄>. The pre-modern TVB drama also stars Raymond Wong (黃浩然) and Sunny Chan (陳錦鴻), who took a year-long hiatus to care for his autistic 5-year-old son.

Sonija Kwok Ready for Work Once Again

Sonija revealed that her role in The Record of Fifth Kai City will resemble Sheren Tang’s (鄧萃雯) authoritative figure from No Regrets <巾幗梟雄2>. Sonija said, “The story will depict how my family members are inept, in which I am the only responsible party to take care of matters.”

Earlier rumors claimed that Sonija had to make her career comeback in order to earn “milk money” for her newborn daughter. Husband, Zhu Shaojie (朱少杰), who works as a mainland drama action choreographer, reportedly earns less money than Sonija. Dismissing the earlier rumors, Sonija revealed that since her mother took care of baby Kylie during the day, this allowed Sonija to return to work without any worries.

During the night time, Sonija will sleep with Kylie by her side, allowing her to spend more time together. Although employed in mainland China, Zhu Shaojie often returns to Hong Kong to see Sonija and their daughter.

As to future baby plans, Sonija replied, “Wait until next year. I hope to have two children.” Sonija also said that she hoped to have a boy.

Sunny Chan Son Makes Good Progress

Sunny Chan returns to TVB after a one-year hiatus to care for his autistic son, Edgar, who had significant learning disabilities. Since Edgar is currently in K3, Sunny hoped to be train his son properly to self-govern himself to prepare for primary school. Otherwise, his son will need to enter a special school for children with learning disabilities.

“His progress is quite good. The biggest problem is communicating with other people. It is difficult to make big leaps in one step only. I am already satisfied with his ability to self-govern.”

  1. Tracy and Matthew LOL…they ACTUaLLY hurt themselves at the same time! xp

    i bet sheren tang’s version of that character would be much better than Sonija Kwok’s though.

      1. I think the one with the Sheren Tang hair style (IS IT A WIG?!), is for the years when she’s older, even though she really doesn’t look suitable for it. Her face is overwhelmed by that huge curl.

        I liked the photo that you posted too. She looks so young, and much prettier and younger than a photo I saw of Lin Xia Wei in the series.

  2. Sonija’s a natural beauty so we usually see her in simpler makeup to enhance that look. But I have to say, she looks wonderful in that style and glammed up!

  3. They couldn’t find anyone else to pair up with Raymond. Disappointed.

    Patrick Tang doesn’t receive meaty roles anymore; he’s demoted.
