Tavia Yeung Hopes Audiences Would Show Support And Watch Their Series On Time

TVB drama, Men With No Shadows《不速之約》, starring Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Raymond Lam (林峯) and Bobby Au-Yeung (歐陽震華) is still currently broadcasting in the households of Hong Kong.

However, unexpectedly, spoilers of future episodes were discovered to have been leaked onto a Mainland China website.

TVB senior management staff had already been alerted of this incident and have expressed that they will do a thorough investigation to get to the bottom of this matter.

TVB professed that they will do a thorough investigation

The producer behind “Men With No Shadows”, Poon Ka-Tak (潘嘉德), professed that TVB had already launched an investigation towards all the relevant parties involved.

It was known that TVB’s normal practice was to hand the tape containing the episodes directly over to their worldwide television operating arm, TVBI.

TVBI would then disseminate it overseas and request the other parties to broadcast the episodes synchronously with Hong Kong or even later. However, it was inevitable to have some loopholes in the process.

TVB’s External Affairs’ Deputy Director, Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明), did not rule out the possibility that sometimes out of convenience, TVB might hand over the tape earlier than usual to TVBI.

However, Tsang Sing Ming also pointed out that TVB and TVBI belonged to the same conglomerate and have worked exceptionally well together in their many years of co-operations, rarely making any mistakes.

Nonetheless, to prevent history from repeating itself and to hamper any more of such leakage from happening on other blockbuster dramas, the company would still conduct a dynamic investigation.

When Tavia Yeung, the female main lead of “Men With No Shadows”, was asked about this matter, she revealed that quite a few of her Mainland fans had told her that they have seen the episodes that have yet to be broadcasted in Hong Kong.

Tavia continued, “We will more or less be affected but such matters are inevitable. Even if there is a thorough investigation, they might not be able to track the source of it. We can just hope that the Hong Kong audiences would support us and watch the series on time.”

In other news, Bobby Au-Yeung, the other male main lead of “Men With No Shadows”, was at TVB Pay Vision last night to promote another classic drama which he had previously participated in. As for “Men” being accused of plagiarism, Bobby expressed that he sincerely urged all the audiences to watch another ten episodes patiently before making any verdict.

    No wonder episode 1 and 2 came out at the same day. I had my suspicion too.

    Currently, I like Catherine Chow’s character the most in the series.

    I just watch 1 and 1/2 episodes only.

    I find Raymond’s demon too nice. If I’m the demon, I’d have taken Bobby’s life the second time I come for him, instead of listening to his ‘I’m a good man, I shouldn’t die’ reasoning. This kinda of reasoning should be moot point for a demon. There’s so many people who has all kinds of reasons why they shouldn’t die. Bobby’s reason is actually quite weak.

    Maybe Raymond’s demon is still new to the job and has not heard many of these reasoning. Wait a few years more, he will be tired of it.

    If he’s really there just to play Bobby, I would have loved to see a scene of him laughing mischievously at his own practical joke on Bobby. That would make his character a whole lot more interesting.

      As far as I know, everything Raymond’s character do has a reason. I’m waiting for those reasons to come out. Hopefully they would be surprising.

      Raymond can’t laugh. It will ruin his chok image. Seriously, I only watch one episode and I’m already sick of Raymond’s face. Why does he have to look cool all the time? I used to love him but now all his characters are the same, chok chok chok…

        Raymond is better in episode 2. More expression. I still think this demon is too nice and Bobby’s character is plain annoying. But, I like this demon more and more. Looking forward to see what he will do next time.

        No, this one is different, but I still looking for more breakthrough, something more “harsh” or “nasty”, it’s a little bit “calm” for me though.

        I only saw one episode and I don’t seem to fancy Bobby’s character much. I don’t know why, but I only seem to like him in Forensic Heroes. He seems impartial here and too much babbling for a guy in his 40s. I need to check his character profile to see if that’s his real age. Btw, the actor who plays his father, seriously? I bet he’s only a little ten years older than him.

        Haha ~ Raymond’s demon character can’t be too evil. He needs to maintain his coolness, still be intimidating to lure the audience and be in the run for Best Actor. If he was pure evil, would there still be sympathy for the actor? Anyway, it’s TVB style.

        I don’t know if Tavia is more boring or more annoying.

        I still don’t know what Sire is up to, maybe the acting is lacking here and there, but she seems fishy, but nice at the same time.

        @Chriselle: Sire’s performance is quite cute in the next eps. She shows some natural faces of a cute young girl. But her outfit is so odd.

        Bobby’s character become better in episode 2-3 when he has to choose who to die. He really is a good person.

        “Haha ~ Raymond’s demon character can’t be too evil. He needs to maintain his coolness, still be intimidating to lure the audience and be in the run for Best Actor. If he was pure evil, would there still be sympathy for the actor? Anyway, it’s TVB style.”

        I wouldn’t think he’s pure evil even if he takes Bobby’s life because that’s his job. So far, I don’t find him that intimidated even with the special effects. But, I like his Typhoon. Quite an interest character.

        “I still don’t know what Sire is up to, maybe the acting is lacking here and there, but she seems fishy, but nice at the same time.”

        I agree with you base on episode 1. She seems fishy and underhanded. She always snatch Dr.O’s patients to her mother’s side while still being all sweet towards Dr.O’s family. But, in episode 2, when her father want to cheat Dr.O’s mom out if her properties (Dr.O’s clinic), she informed Dr.O. So, she actually is a bridge for the 2 families. Good to both side.

      I switch on, see Tavia, switch to River of Wine. Sorry Ray, not even your red eyes could tempt me.

      And yes, red eyes… Sehseh is right; it is also a bit of Hell Girl.

      I wouldn’t call plagarism, more like inspiration, however a lazy inspiration. At least give the man green eyes or something!

      One non-human or reaper type of character that I like recently is from SBS’ “49 Days”. He is a nice and adorable reaper too, and the story of his past life; although predictable, is executed well.

    Finished watching Eps 06 and started confusing…

    What is the series all about then?
    What are all the characters up to?
    To this point, I can’t understand what type of character Typhoon is, he’s too complicated and abnormal 🙂

    Everyone in our family used to like her but she has become an attention you know what. But then again, everyone in this industry wants to be at the top at any cost, even if they have to gamble on plastic surgeries. Her face looks quite different nowadays compared to when she first started with TVB. Overall, good actress still but getting greedy though, not as humble as she used to be.
