Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) was reported to have signed a contract with HKTV to film for an upcoming 20-episode detective series. Because Ricky Wong (王維基) has ordered to terminate the filming, Yoyo allegedly has already pocketed $1 million HKD without having to do any work.

Yesterday, Yoyo attended RTHK’s 2012 TV Program Appreciation Index Survey – Best Program Award Ceremony. Yoyo’s TVB contract expired last month and she chose not to renew a filming contract with the company, hoping to experience a new chapter in her career. She stressed that she is currently a free agent who is not committed to any particular long-term contract. Although her manager had communicated with Ricky, no contracts have been signed.

As for the rumored detective series, Yoyo said that she has not even received a script and is unsure of the matter herself. Did she not dare sign a contract because of HKTV’s delay in receiving a license? “I’m not worried. It’s impossible that everything will be set with only 10 hours of production. I’m taking a rest right now, because I have a tooth inflammation that still hasn’t recovered after months. It hurts when I speak or eat.”

Medical crime drama, A Great Way to Care 2 <仁心解碼II>, which stars Alex Fong, Yoyo Mung, Tavia Yeung (楊怡), and Ben Wong (黃智賢), is currently airing in full swing. Although Yoyo was unable to attend the drama’s official promotion, she expressed she will take the responsibility to help promote in other ways. Yoyo hopes to raise the drama’s viewership ratings, which averaged 28 points last week.

Portraying a forensic psychiatric consultant, Yoyo expressed that she did not know that netizens would make fun of her character’s outlook and refer to her as “Glasses Woman.”

      2014-ish. Close to TVB & ATV renewal licensing time frame

      Good question! Analysts predict that the licensing thing will drag out until 2015, which is the year that both TVB and ATV’s free TV licenses expire. Once that happens, both stations will be at the mercy of the gov’t to renew their own licenses, so it will be difficult for them to continue ‘blocking’ the gov’t from issuing new licenses to other stations at that time (which is what TVB and ATV are both trying to do right now). Also, the gov’t could ‘reshuffle’ things at that time and take back certain stations’ licenses if they wanted to (though I highly doubt they’re going to do that) – either way, the gov’t will definitely be forced to make a decision by then.

      If its going to take until 2015, HKTV’s shows will be quite dated when it finally airs. Feel bad for the third tier artists that they signed. Probably wont be having a lot of work if it’s going to take until 2015.

        They will have to release it online or setup a PAYTV first because viewers interest in HKTV is faded quickly.

      Since Yoyo has been having a tooth inflammation and pain every time she eats, she may just have lost a little bit of weight. Plus, this picture is very bright so the lighting may have contributed. Otherwise, it doesn’t look like she had any minor work or touchups done.

    If this continues, the tv station will have no choice but to start airing their shows in china or sell them to singapore to air for profit instead of none at the moment or the tv station could be in debt soon.

    What’s for sure is tvb will have rising competition!

    I have always thought Yoyo was a bit stiff in her acting however she has made vast improvements over the years. Either way she goes in her career I certainly wish her the very best. I think she is a nice person otherwise Ekin would not have chosen her. Also, I love those lash extensions on her. Opens her eyes even wider, she’s very pretty 🙂
