Synopsis of TVB’s “Limelight Years”

TVB’s upcoming modern drama Limelight Years <華麗轉身> will be premiering on April 27. Produced by Chong Wai Kin (莊偉建), Limelight Years stars Liza Wang (汪明荃), Damian Lau (劉松仁), Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), Alex Fong Lik Sun (方力申), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), and features guest appearances by Michelle Yim (米雪) and Chung King Fai (鍾景輝).

There is darkness behind the limelight. After recovering from a long-term sickness, retiring singer Wah Fong Ying (Liza Wang) has come to realize that she has failed to live a fulfilling life. With two failed marriages and strained relationships with her three children, Fong Ying is much lonelier than she admits.

Summoning up all her courage, Fong Ying flies to Taiwan to mend her broken relationship with her oldest daughter. During this time, she comes across Hong Kong photographer Law Ben (Damian Lau), who is in Taiwan to fulfill his late wife’s (Michelle Yim) wish of returning to her ancestral home. Sparks fly when the extraordinary meets the ordinary. Both Fong Ying and Ben find their strength as they quietly support each other.

Encouraged by Ben, Fong Ying decides to perform one last time in a goodbye concert for her close friends and family, but her youngest daughter Tong Yan (Eliza Sam) reacts coldly to the invitation. Nonetheless, Fong Ying remains committed to her last concert and hires a new assistant Szeto Dik Dik (Linda Chung) and a new creative director, Song Sheung Hang (Alex Fong). Dik Dik and Sheung Han initially struggle to get along due to past misunderstandings, but they eventually cultivate a deep relationship.

Just as Fong Ying starts to find the light again, she is once again attacked by darkness. While Sheung Hang was preparing a special issue to promote Fong Ying’s concert, he discovers an ugly secret that Fong Ying has been keeping for many years. Dik Dik finds out that Fong Ying and her uncle were involved in the past. Ben is also starting to have hallucinations….

    Another big mistake by TVB to cast Linda Chung in what could be a good drama with such a strong cast in Liza Wang and Damian Lau. Why TVB continues to cast Linda when the world world has already condemned her as the worst TVB actress ever is anyone guess? I can bet that she would put on the same expression throughout the drama – absolute one dimensional acting.

      @freedalas – I couldn’t agree with you more. If I watch this drama it would be because of Liza,Damian & Eliza.

        @purplecat Eliza can’t act either. Liza and Damian are the only reasons to watch this drama, and I’m not even a fan of Liza. Linda’s acting is so one dimensional. Anything out of her typical typecast role, she will look constipated or exaggerated.

        @anon you are comparing the young actress to all those aunties and uncle long timer in TVB.. I have stopped watching tvb for sometime up until by chance I saw Daddy good Deed and discovered this fine actress Linda Chung and I started to like her not only my whole family like her, we started to look for more of her series like that dog show (forgot thae tittle which she acted with Steven Ma.. Look in this industries you don’t need to sell your soul to act sexy or go for plastic surgery… for Linda she doesn’t care for all this which I find her very special especially in Hong Kong entertainment industry. Your comment is one sided.. sorry..

      @freedalas If her role is a weak crybaby then she’ll do well in this series. That’s the only role she is good at.

      @bridgetauyong Just because she is a good person does not mean she’s a good actress. I feel your opinion is the complete opposite of what most people feel about her acting, which is quite humorous.

        @anon what so humorous..????? this is only your opinion..Just observe her.. she is not only well mannered and constantly caring with the audiences who attended her show. She is very well liked by Malaysians and Singaporeans viewers. Just 2 days ago I bought the DVD original(Brothers Keeper) by the way and give it to my sister-in- law. She straight away notice Linda though she doesn’t recall her name..But she highlighted to me that she like her show.. You can call us no taste or whatever but we honestly like her.. Full stop.

      @bridgetauyong No other actress could have acted better than Linda in Tiger Cubs 2. Absolutely the best actress!

    Linda Chung is definitely a good girl and a very unusual one in the entertainment industry……… simple, naive, and down-to-earth. However, she may not be a good actress just because she is a good girl. Acting is something different …………. fake to a certain extent that is totally opposite to her own nature and personality.

    I agree that Linda Chung’s acting is rather one-dimensional. If she acts a next-door-girl, she will be perfect in her acting. But if she has to act someone very different, she tends to exaggerate her acting and facial expressions.

    Of course, all diehard fans would support their idols. There is no question about it. Moreover, acting is very subjective.
