Yoyo Mung Considers Signing with HKTV
Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) is quite a catch for the Hong Kong television market. After marrying boyfriend of seven years, Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健), in a secretive wedding ceremony held in Tokyo on January 28, Yoyo returned to Hong Kong yesterday. The couple wore matching wedding bands and smiled happily when the press greeted them at the airport.
“We wanted to have a special wedding our way. We do intend to obtain our marriage registration later,” Ekin said.
Ready to start their new life as a busy married couple, Ekin will be doing promotions in Macau in the coming months, while Yoyo will be preoccupied with the filming of a new television drama.
Yoyo, whose filming contract with TVB will expire in March 2013, is currently in discussion with joining rival station, CTI’s HKTV station. It has been said that HKTV wants to hire Yoyo for at least $50,000 HKD per episode, five times greater than Yoyo’s current salary with TVB. HKTV intends to sign Yoyo for a two-year, three-serial contract.
TVB is not far behind, and has already reached out to Yoyo last month, negotiating for a contract renewal.
HKTV’s spokeperson, Jessie, confirmed that the station is indeed interested in signing with Yoyo, but expressed, “It is not convenient to comment at this stage. When the time is right, an announcement will be made.”
Yoyo’s manager, Miss Tang, also confirmed that Yoyo is currently in contractual talks with both stations. In a phone interview, Miss Tang stated, “As for whether or not she will renew her TVB contract, it really depends on what TVB is willing to offer. Yoyo does not care about the price anymore. She takes importance in high quality productions.”
Yoyo currently has two TVB dramas waiting for release – Ruse of Engagement <叛逃> and A Great Way to Care II <仁心解碼II>, which is slated to air on March 18, 2013.
