TVB Lifted the Ban on Jacqueline Wong
When Jacqueline Wong‘s (黃心穎) affair with Andy Hui (許志安) was unveiled earlier in April, Jacqueline fled to the United States to escape the public’s criticism. Far from the Hong Kong entertainment circle, she allegedly changed her name to start over. TVB also shelved her dramas one by one in response to the public’s strong feelings about the incident. But recently, TVB began to lift the ban on her by airing one of her series, Finding Her Voice <牛下女高音>, as an anniversary drama. Now, her two other dramas Offliners <堅離地愛堅離地> and Maid Alliance <丫鬟大聯盟> will also be premiered soon.
Her Dramas Will Air in Malaysia
It is known that Maid Alliance and Offliners, both of which Jacqueline starred in, will air in Malaysia on November 18 and December 16, respectively. Offliners producer Ng Koon Yue (吳冠宇) confirmed that the drama would show in Malaysia immediately after Finding Her Voice ends.
He said, “The broadcasting schedule for Malaysia and Hong Kong are different. In Hong Kong, Mainland drama Legend of the Phoenix <鳳弈> will air right after Finding Her Voice. Since the company doesn’t have the rights to air Legend of the Phoenix in Malaysia, Offliners will premiere after Finding Her Voice.”
Koon Yue said he hopes Offliners would eventually air in Hong Kong as well, but it depends on TVB’s arrangement. “At least the drama can be broadcasted in Malaysia, the actors’ efforts are not going to waste,” he expressed.
Jacqueline was in Malaysia Before the Cheating Scandal
Although it is unsure why the TVB executives decided to air Jacqueline’s drama in Malaysia, coincidentally, Jacqueline was working in Malaysia before her affair was exposed. A week before the big exposé, the actress was filming travel program A Chef and a Gentleman <懿想得到>.
Reportedly, she first caught wind of the cheating video while there, and became a mess, so the director complained to TVB executive Virginia Lok (樂易玲). Afterward, Jacqueline confessed to Virginia that she was filmed having an affair. Virginia immediately ordered Jacqueline to stop work and go to Vancouver to avoid the limelight.
