Tavia Yeung (楊怡) portrays a nightclub dancer for the first time in the new drama, A Great way to Care 2 <仁心解碼II>. The crew and some of the cast members filmed on location in the busy neighborhood of Mongkok. In one of the scenes, Tavia, and triad member (Jonathan Cheung 張頴康) negotiate loudly on the busy street. Their argument escalates into violence and Tavia is eventually shoved into a wall. The situation gets out of hand until a policeman walks by, and they both pretend to be friends to resolve the problem.

Tavia and Jonathan have collaborated together in many TVB series, allowing them to develop a good working relationship due to Tavia’s straightforward and outgoing tomboy personality. The action scenes with Tavia went without any problems. Jonathan Cheung said, “Some of the scenes require a lot of pushing and shuffling, and I am afraid of doing these kinds of scenes with girls, but Tavia is easygoing and can easily get into her character quickly.”

Portraying a nightclub dancer for the first time, Tavia really looked the part. She did a great deal of preparation and research to play this role. Tavia said she had to learned how to talk tough and she even observed the behavior of some wild girls. Tavia said that the worst part about portraying a nightclub dancer was having to smoke cigarettes constantly, and she is not a smoker in real life.

Tavia revealed her character is actually an undercover cop. She will have a relationship with Ben Wong (黃智賢 ).

Tavia is also reunited with her former costar, Alex Fong (方中信), in the new drama. Alex is known to be a cheerful costar who loves to play pranks on his costars during filming. When asked whether Tavia was one of his victims, she laughed and said, “I have worked with Alex quite a few times; we have a great chemistry. Uncle Fong is talking slower nowadays and cannot fool us as easily!”

    I believe most prostitutes or clubs cadres in real life don’t dress like this. Only the elder and cheap ones in the slum streets dress like this to get attention and cost way less than the normal younger prostitutes in clubs.

      Tavia should’ve worn a long hair wig and better looking dresses that show off her career lines to convince as a prostitute.

        vivien : Those hookers are the young ones? Like 20+? The Goddess looks 40 so she IS an elderly hooker. LOL
        Or maybe is a mamasan. LOL

        Those hookers in the picture must be young 20s. They have great body and legs and I must agree that they have current fashion and hairstyles. Tavia looks more like a mamasan.

        Those wearing white dresses must be the dancer+hookers because it looks like some uniform for some of them.

    She should just stick to boring and bland roles. This look reminds of those prostitutes in the 70s where there’s disco balls, fluffy feathers, smoke in the background and XO on the table. So outdated and ugly. Sorry, no other way to put it.

    Her makeup is too heavy and costume does not match at all. She looks too old and like an old cheap doll 🙁 the picx looks bad. Not sure if she wanders along the net to read negative reviews and posts from netizens?

    • jayne replied:

      Funn,
      The original term referred to Tavia as “舞女” which I interpreted as prostitute, but it can also mean nightclub dancer. Some readers voiced that Tavia is not an undercover prostitute, thus the revision in the text.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        “舞女” is actually more like nightclub girl.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        I don’t think there is such a thing as nightclub dancer? More like those GROs?

        Login or Register before you can reply to Funn Lim
      • jayne replied:

        Funn,
        My understanding is that a “舞女” would dance with male customers at nightclubs. However, she would usually go out with men and have paid sex outside of the nightclub premises. Because male customers usually are interested in more than a dance.

        There are different levels of prostitution, where there is the 舞女, karaoke companion (KTV girls), escorts, massage girls, or plain prostitutes who pull customers off the street. It targets different levels of customers with different affordability and interest levels.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        Then shouldn’t in the context of this series, her image and the name then the word should be escort?

      • jayne replied:

        Funn,
        Nightclub dancer is a more literal translation of the term, so we’ll leave that for now. An escort also has different levels of meaning, as some attend functions with male companions (event based) while in some cases, it means a high class “call girl” visiting customers at hotels.

        Since Tavia’s character appears to go undercover in a nightclub, and presumably dances with customers.

      If she calls Alex “uncle”, she really needs to look at herself. Calling her “Ah Yi” (auntie) is too good for her.

        Compares to Myolie, Kate, Linda, etc… Tavia is a much better actress and way better looking.

    She looks not so nice on this photo. Her long hair in Heart of Greeds was nice. She should try longer hair and lesser make-up. Night Club dancer is also sexy not prosty.

    Why is everyone jumping all over her for this? If you guys have a problem with the way she look for this role then blame the costume/stylist director for this series not Tavia, she just wear what they tell her to wear, it’s not like this outfit is from her own closet.

      Front line TVB artistes can have a say in their costumes. Myolie for example has asked feedback from fans for her style in RB3.

        Speaking of Moyolie, I think she’s wearing the same wig for RB3 lol…don’t know about the rest of you but I will be pressing the fast forward pretty often.

        how come myolie always have bad haircuts in every single series she’s had? her haircut in GJ was bad… like really bad… so is her current one in TITS2. She didn’t want to cut her hair, but sorry even for first line artists, they don’t get a choice coz the producer said CHOP CHOP. Now she has ANOTHER bad haircut

        Why bashing Myolie for a haircut that is meant for her boyish character? She shouldn’t get a pretty haircut because her character has tomboy personality!

      A lot of haters here especially to Tavia and Myolie. Not sure why… Also not objective in their views. Tavia dressed like this for an act and maybe the script / background of the role needed her to be dressed like this? If she dressed like this for functions, then yes, please BASH her till kingdom come!!!

        The makeup for the series is done by the artists and their makeup artists themselves. Only special makeup the company will involve. Stated by Kaki Leung. The outfits sometimes are sponsored by the artists, too, especially in modern series. They wear their own clothes in the series.
