TVB’s Assistant General Manager Au Wai Lam (區偉林) treated the stars of popular sitcom Come Home Love <愛·回家> to a cast dinner last night. The long-running sitcom, which was recently expanded to 500 episodes, is headlined by Lau Dan (劉丹) and costars Tsui Wing (徐榮), Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿), Florence Kwok (黎諾懿), Yvonne Lam (林漪娸), Carlo Ng (吳家樂), Angel Chiang (蔣家旻), and Joey Law (羅天宇) as members of the Ma family, an extended Chinese family living together in modern-day Hong Kong.

Acclaimed for its relevant storytelling and witty narration, Come Home Love has been one of TVB’s most well-received sitcom in recent years, consistently drawing an average of 24 ratings points per week. To congratulate the cast and crew for their hard work, Mr. Au promised that he would treat the team to big dinners on special holidays.

Joyce Tang (滕麗名), who joined the drama a few months ago, is thankful to have been cast in Come Home Love, expressing that it feels great to be involved in a “stable” series. However, Joyce revealed that she has to request for a temporary break in the series due to the filming of another drama. She said, “The producer and I had a great discussion [about my character] and I will return to the cast once I complete my other drama. I really want my character to have a relationship line, so I’ll have more screen time. Some netizens mentioned that I should be paired up with Joey Law.”

Asked if Joyce finds filming a sitcom to be more comfortable than filming regular dramas, Joyce said, “I’m actually not very used to such a normal lifestyle, because there will always be a lot of traffic in the morning when I go to work. But the cast is very close. We are all like family.”

Oceane Zhu: “My Cantonese Improved”

Recurring cast member Oceane Zhu (朱璇) is happy to hear about the popularity of Come Home Love and is excited about the renewed episodes. As her storyline in the sitcom is finished, Oceane is unsure if she will have the opportunity to appear in future episodes.

“My relationship with [Lai Lok Yi’s character] is over. I really don’t know if I’ll still be in [the future episodes]. Maybe I’ll show up here and there to stir him up, so he will feel bad about the breakup,” Oceane joked.

Oceane likes the steady work style of filming a sitcom, adding that because of her regular work hours, she managed to gain a few pounds. “I almost can’t wear the jeans I used to wear a long time ago. I will work on exercising more. Hopefully I’ll lose another five pounds.”

She also added, “But filming dramas improve my Cantonese. I can hold up more conversations. When I stop work, [my Cantonese] gets worse.”

    Sitcoms are a good way to introduce and train newbies, or at least that’s how it was back then. It seems like Oceane has improved a bit.

    I like all the eposides with Ma family. It’s funny how Florence and Lau Dan was father and daughter in Kindred Spirit and how they are siblings.

    So why did John Ma and Ching Ching broke up?

    Actually, I like the boss’ antique shop members the most. If they have more screen time of them will be even be even better but they seem to love the office setting and family members screen time the most. =0(

    I find that the story line is getting pretty bad. it is becoming illogical.

    I like Ching Ching, she is sweet and really does not deserve a bf like Mah Chong. He made her into this obsessive gf.

    I also like joyce tang.

      AGREED!!
      Hate how they ended the relationship between John Ma and Ching Ching in that way!!
      They should just ended it with Ching Ching finally realised the John Ma she is in love with is no longer the John Ma now.
      Hated how he just let Ching Ching in the rain and especially even after she called to tell him there is a sex maniac beside her.
      And it’s too much that he even cheated her about the wedding date!
      They can just end it that way, at least it will be better for Ching Ching character. To end it with her having a big fuss like a crazy woman certainly BAD!!

    I’m happy that this series got extended because I enjoy most of the series and storylines, but I hope this doesn’t mean that some of the storylines will keep on getting dragged out! I really like all the family episodes as well as the John Ma and Alex storyline. They just need to speed up their relationship some more!

        Ha Jie and Richard is also the most touching for me as well.

        I also like Amanda a lot in the series. She’s doing a pretty good job playing her role.
