Steven Ma and Fala Chen Defend Ron Ng and Raymond Lam Over Alleged Rude Behavior

Although no longer managed by TVB, both Steven Ma (馬浚偉) and Fala Chen (陳法拉) remain supportive of their former colleagues. The two denied some of the recent accusations against the company’s popular artistes and personally vouched for their characters.

A former TVB production assistant has put together a tell-all book to expose some of the juicy secrets known only to those working behind-the-scenes. This immediately attracted both interest and a torrent of criticism, with many from the entertainment industry questioning the credibility behind the stories and calling the author shameless. The book, titled TVB’s Blood, Tears and Dirt <TVB血淚屎>, will be available in Hong Kong on April 14 and contains forwards written by past TVB artistes Wilson Tsui (艾威), Liu Kai Chi (廖啟智), and even one-time General Manager Stephen Chan (陳志雲).

A sample excerpt from the book discusses the author’s experiences while working on the set of martial arts series The Four <少年四大名捕> in 2007. The writer claims that while riding in a minivan to a filming location, Ron Ng (吳卓羲) was allegedly disgusted by the stink coming from his sweat-drenched stunt double and demanded the stuntman to leave the car. The book also chastised Raymond Lam (林峯) for his frequent use of profanity.

Steven and Fala defended Ron and Raymond while promoting their new music single on April 9. Steven pointed out that many male artistes use swear words and that it is not unreasonable to do so. He also showed support for Ron, saying that his rude behavior was likely just a joke. “I don’t believe he would kick someone out of the car. It was probably just a joke… I don’t think Ron Ng is that bad of a person; he just sometimes acts like a kid.”

He also believe that some of the author’s negative experiences can be commonly found in any workplace. “I understand that it is tough being a P.A. The workload is heavy, and there is no time to go home to sleep. However, employees may be scolded by their superiors in any type of organization.”

Fala agrees that the production crew suffers tremendous pressure, though feels that the book’s accounts are fueled strictly by the author’s personal perspective, explaining that the writer may not have a clear understanding of the situation since he only worked for TVB for a short time.

    as much as a work environment is unpleasant and unsatisfactory, i don’t think they should be releasing a book of gossip…especially when the contributors were once colleagues of the people they’re exposing secrets about….that’s just ….not necessary. 好無品呀!<- hah sorry only way i know how to describe it

      This retarded author is making a big fuss of a very trivial matter, who in this world never used profanity, he even used it and described the people as PK, therefore, he should be in his retarded book. He is not only a cry baby but also a douchebag with no contribution to the society.

        To Sheldon, not everyone would use profanity words. And I believe there must be a limit, maybe out of all those male colleagues, Raymond used it the most.

        But more shocking since it is Raymond much like healthy looking stars who are chain smokers. I understand the shock value and if true rather disappointed since stars who build their career on the image of gentleman gallant Prince Charming couldn’t be someone so classless to use profanity. Hence the books shock value

        Are you guys saying that you don’t swear at all? Zero? What’s the big issue if he does or don’t? does it affect you personally? everyone swears once in awhile pubicly or non-publicly. he’s still a human regardless.

        To bloom:
        everyone would use profanity words AT LEAST once or twice in their lifetime. If someone said to u that he/she haven’t use profanity before is definitely a liar. He’s making a big fuss of an idol uses profanity. people must have a reason as to why they scold at someone or even sometimes uses some words that shouldn’t be said. people always think the one being scolded are the victims, but it is them that trigger one’s anger, offended them or have done something wrong. I know that it is not ok to always scold and use profanity, but when one gets very angry or frustrated, they lose control. Who hasn’t experienced that before?

        While swearing is common, but there’s a thin line between swearing in conversation & scolding other people using profanity.

        Generally, I don’t scold profanity at my colleagues unless we are close enough not to take offence, and we don’t ‘ask abt someone’s mother/family member’. We find it more offensive to scold someone as stupid/brainless in work setting rather than the f word, lol.

        Exactly Charlie.
        swearing isn’t a big deal. celebrities are still people. people lose control and generally say stuff that wont be said on a normal basis

        I don’t swear in public or at people. When I am alone yes I swear but I don’t use hard core wearing in eng or in Chinese or in Malay. My family expect that from me and not to sound I am dissing anyone here but yes it shocks m when someone dressing well and swearing in more colourful language like Chinese language. Righteous is not the right word but we’ll mannered. In public. If amongst friends you can swear but my friends and I don’t swear amongst ourselves. However if pk is swearing then yes I’ve used that word. As well as d word, s word, h word an only with myself the f word. Chinese swearing is. No no for me except for pk. And I am talking about in public.

        you may not swear at people but when people calls you name, you call them names or worse, which has the same effect or equal effect as a profanity word. some commenters may be more offended at negatively connotative words than the profanity words.

        I don’t think people should make it a habit to swear at other people. If you do, your children will easily get it from you. My parents never swore at home and did not allow us to do it. As a result, we never swear at other people and never use foul language. Swearing can easily become a habit if you don’t control yourself.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        Calling names is in retaliation and can be from mild to severe. But at least no one here makes a habit of asking about someone’s mother. No calling names is mean of course and not classy. Profanity depending in which language is not classy if directed at others. But guys do tend yo display brotherhood by swearing in whatever they’re saying. It depends on situation and usage.

        Yes, everyone will use profanity once or twice in their lives. But using it in workplace where professionalism and ethical practices are encouraged is totally unprofessional and unethical. I won’t be surprised at this article. Many people use profanity. Women use too. And since it is Hong Kong, it is much more common as Cantonese is a language that sounds nice and appropriate when it is used to swear at other people.

        In America, using profanity is common too, especially in sport arena. But you have to prepare receiving a letter from a lawyer.

        I feel it is sad that some PAs and other people who have to endure that. But sadly, that is how life is at times? Some are lucky to be born into high positions or happen to be in a higher position than someone else, so they abuse their power. But sadly, those below must endure in order to have a job to support themselves and their family. I guess they never think that maybe one day, they may suffer the same things or are already suffering it from someone in an even higher position so are taking it out on their PAs.

    If this person does not name a few stars, why would it be news? The series he worked on with Raymond and Ron was made many, many years ago. I think he needs money now so he decided to pen a book. If he did not use Raymond and Ron, who would give a crap and talk about it! Plus he does not use his real name, no guts! What a worm! Just a parasite feeding off others!

    I bet this so called retarded author can’t endure anything, not even a little stress,people like that won’t get opportunities or be successful in anything.

    No stress= no effort given out

    Writing a book on his ex-employer/company that he has worked in a short period, then it is all BS and all contents are too subjective based on his retarded perspective.

    He himself is a disrespectful person too that calls peoples name, like he called Samuel Chan B1tchy, who doesn’t likes women, and I read this from an article posted by someone. He is a AHole and I despise him of his shameful behavior

      ————————————————————–
      The book also chastised Raymond Lam (林峯) for his frequent use of profanity, not occasionally. Raymond does not seem to be a person who loses his temper and control easily all the time. In that case, he should not have “frequent use of profanity”. I personally think it is his bad habit to have “frequent use of profanity”, which is also a fact to the author.

      Who in this universe is sinless or flawless? Human are made imperfect, everyone has flaws. There are no angels or perfect peoples in this world. This retarded author is definitely a devil from he11, who gave him power to criticize other’s behaviors, he himself use profanity to describe artists and crews. Therefore, he is in no way to write and publish negative things about his ex-worker. What? He thinks he has no fault in his job. He’s a douchebag that probably never put in great effort to his work
