TVB Actresses at Risk of Gaming Disorder
Believe it or not, gaming disorder is a real thing now. Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially added gaming addiction to its list of mental illnesses.
Unfortunately, there is still no solution to the emerging illness, but WHO members urge the importance or proposing treatments and prevention solutions by 2022. The announcement caused an uproar in the gaming industry. Online streamers who play games to earn income said WHO diminished their livelihoods. Interestingly enough, some Hong Kong celebrities are also known for being gamers.
Kelly Cheung (張曦雯)
Life on the Line <跳躍新生命線> actress Kelly was labeled as a “Gaming Goddess” after live streaming herself playing video games on her YouTube channel, Mandy Suki. Netizens became fans of the 29-year-old for the way she portrayed herself in a very real way, even cussing while immersed in the game. Her passion for gaming led to an increase in her popularity, especially among the male audience.
However, she hasn’t live broadcasted her gaming sessions as of late due to her heavy workload despite finding time to play games almost every day.
Sammi Cheung (張秀文)
It turns out that Sammi is also a gaming addict, and frequently gets in a game or two while preparing for filming. She apparently played for 13 or 14 hours straight without eating, drinking, and using the bathroom!
Last year, she fell in love with the video game, “Monster Hunter World,” and even asked for gaming tips on Instagram. It seems that she has a high chance of suffering from a gaming disorder.
