Wong Cho-lam Announces “Inbound Troubles 3”

At an event promoting the grand opening of a therapy center, Wong Cho-lam (王祖藍) announced that he will soon be returning to Hong Kong television screens for Inbound Troubles 3, which will begin production at the end of the year. Cho-lam will reprise his roles as helmer, screenwriter, and actor. The original cast members, such as Roger Kwok (郭晉安) and Joey Meng (萬綺雯), are expected to return.

“Inbound Troubles 3” to Star All Original Cast Members

Inbound Troubles <老表,你好嘢!>, a comedy that satirizes the growing tensions between people from Mainland China and Hong Kong, was conceptualized by Cho-lam in 2012. The drama was shot to immediate success after its debut in January 2013, prompting Cho-lam to write a second series, Come On, Cousin <老表,你好hea!>, a year later. Not only did the Inbound Troubles franchise kickstart Cho-lam’s creative career, it also re-introduced Joey Meng, Ivana Wong (王菀之), and Louis Cheung (張繼聰) to the Hong Kong audiences.

“It will feature the cast members from the first two shows,” revealed Cho-lam when he was asked about the cast for Inbound Troubles 3. “There’s going to be a lot of people to take care of!”

Ivana Wong, who married longtime boyfriend Eric So (蘇卓航) last year, was rumored to be pregnant, but they were later debunked. Commenting that these rumors might come true by the time Inbound Troubles 3 start production, Cho-lam said the script will accommodate Ivana’s condition.

“The best part of [Inbound Troubles 3] is that it will talk about our lives after marriage,” said Cho-lam. “So even if Ivana does get pregnant, I will find a way to work it into the script.”

Cho-lam Comments on TVB Marriages

At the news of Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Him Law’s (羅仲謙) secret wedding in England, Cho-lam said with a laugh, “It’s been a very flourishing two years for the TV industry. Everyone [is getting married] one by one. Nowadays, staying underground doesn’t seem to be the thing anymore. Fans are becoming more accepting of their idols dating and getting married.”

With TVB fadans like Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), and now Tavia Yeung getting married, it is said that there will be a shortages of fadans in the future. Cho-lam disagrees.

“There is still the younger generation, like Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) and Grace Chan (陳凱琳). They are quite exceptional. I’m sure a new generation is coming up. I don’t think they will get married anytime soon.” (That’s hard to say for Grace!) “You’re going to have to ask Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) about that!”

    Somehow when photographed alone, Wong Cho Lam doesn’t look that short and ugly (perhaps that cap helps). But when juxtaposed with Leanne in any photo, his shortness and ugliness really come through vividly. If Wong Cho Lam you’re reading this, do the right thing from now on, don’t have Leanne beside you in any photos, it brings out the true you – short and ugly.

      @freedalas: You crack me up each time with your posts. And all that bantering (maybe too mild a word to use). Reading jaynestar really provides me with some comic relief in my otherwise mundane yet stressful job !!

      @yummiki24 Yup. More and more people are getting sick of his antics. His brand of humor is so contrived and not at all funny. His days are numbered, his end is near. And once that happens, haha, we’ll see Leanne heading straight for the door.

        Hong Kong has always taken to silly comedy thats mostly unfunny. Films have consisted of this for decades and it has continued to be popular. his form of comedy won’t even work in a pub in countries from the West however. I doubt his career is numbered and he knows it.

        In Hong Kong the studies,financial and job stress are greater than in the west. There is less time to enjoy television so when there is a free half hour to an hour daily, people would rather watch mindless slapstick comedy or Wong Cho Lam doing a stupid impersonation. Family dramas are also popular because they exude family warmth. Serious dramas will always be at a disadvantage in achieving ratings. In countries such as England and America, this type of comedy is very much behind the times. Only clever, well thought out comedy become popular. For example ‘family guy’.
        Inbound troubles 1 was decent because it contained the fresh topic of showing the behaviour of Hong Kong and mainland residents. Inbound troubles was just random slapstick comedy that was unfunny and at times offensive.

    Please no.  Inbound Troubles was good because it was fresh and also different from what TVB was churning out at the time (no doubt that Wong Cho Lam was given a certain amount of freedom with the first installment, though within the reigns of what TVB would allow of course).  The sequel Come On Cousin already did NOT retain the ‘freshness’ that Inbound Troubles had – worse yet, COC came off as a cheap, irreverent version of TVB’s traditional brainless slapstick comedies.  As it is, the sequel was already torture to sit through (Ram Tseung and all the classic song references were pretty much the only 2 things that made the series even remotely watchable)….we don’t need a third installment with the same cast to torture us even more.

    I thought he wasn’t going to produce IT3 like he said before in this article:

    Must be desperate to make another series

      @toffee Yup. He knows his popularity is waning and is desperately trying to make money in order to keep his wife by his side. But we all know Inbound Troubles 3 will surely fail and things will only spiral downwards for him. The end is near. Won’t be long before Leanne ends up in the arms of another guy.

        You’ll be so disappointed to know that Wong will be in Milan co-starring in a movie with Andy Lau and Huang Xiaoming .

      • freedalas replied:

        @msxie0714 So what? Of course he has to take on co-starring roles to keep the cash coming in, else how he can afford Leanne. And he will take on smaller and even smaller roles as his popularity wanes. It’s only a matter of time, when his earnings will be down to a trickle, and that’s when we see the happy ending of Leanne leaving him.

        Whatever…..he’s more successful than you will ever be. That’s why you’re obsessed with targeting him for your online bullying.

      • freedalas replied:

        @msxie0714 The issue here is not whether he is more successful than me or not. The issue here is of his waning popularity that caused his desperation into making Inbound Trouble 3 when all could see how badly Inbound Trouble 2 had fared. And why the desperation? Because he had to earn enough to keep Leanne as deep down inside him, he knows Leanne only loves him for the money and once that is gone, she will leave him for somebody else.

        Had Wong Cho Lam been more realistic and marry someone with who is just as awful looking and short like him, he won’t be in such a pitiful situation.

        @freedalas

        I don’t think it’s the waning popularity that has caused him to create another sequel. It’s because he has put in every ounce of effort in the past year to maximise every Rmb he could grab from the Mainland,he now feels the need to do something in Hong Kong and TVB to keep that market. The easiest thing would be to do a sequel. Just get a bunch of writers to sort the script. Barely any work.Other projects will require too much of his time and prevent him from appearing on these reality shows where he can earn more in a month than a year in Hong Kong.

        @freedalas Get your facts straight before you make another baseless comments out of your ignorance or your bias against Wong cho lam. You clearly had an axe to grind toward him! If not then what’s your point of dragging him up every single time into unrelated articles? You are indeed a stupid moron. It’s completely asinine and childish of you to repeatedly insults Wong cho lam for absolutely no valid reason at all, other than the fact that you dislike his physical appearance.

What harm has he ever done to you? Aside from his appearance,do you have any reason for hating him? It’s completely asinine and childish of you to repeatedly insults Wong cho lam for absolutely no valid reason at all, other than the fact that you dislike his physical appearance.

    Lol, milking the first one as much as he can I see. Inbound Troubles was ok, but Come On, Cousin was terribad. I’m surprised TVB is letting him do a third one. He really should know when to stop before he runs the thing to the ground.

      @theyenman As @toffee has said, his popularity is ending and is therefore desperate to make some money before it all ends for him. After which, his wife will sure to leave him. So even knowing that Inbound Trouble 3 would end up with only a 17-point rating, he will go ahead. He’s in that deep trouble.

        @freedalas

        His money is already locked up from all the mainland variety episodes equating to being to afford a mansion per few episodes. Even if his work stopped dead, Wong Cho Lam will still be rich. Leanne has also made millions from these shows. However if she wasn’t together with Wong Cho Lam, she would have been struggling at TVB on minimum pay for a few years before disappearing. She hasn’t got anything going for her in terms of acting nor being able to speak Cantonese clearly.

        @jimmyszeto The problem is he is spending the millions he has now like water in order to keep Leanne by his side. He can’t earn fast enough to maintain her. Soon it will be all gone.

        He has been doing lazy work in China for the past year or 2. The money is going into his account quicker than its being printed. He can try his best but it would take an effort to throw it all away.
