Joe Ma Considers Starting Own Company

By on November 25, 2014 in TV Dramas


The cast of Tiger Cubs 2 <飛虎II> promoted the series while attending a hiking charity event earlier this week. Enjoying top ratings in its weekend time slot, the series’ lead star Joe Ma (馬德鐘) said he is very happy to see the satisfying results of Tiger Cubs 2. He expressed that he has confidence that the police procedural drama will enter the nominations for Best Drama at the TVB Anniversary Awards next month. Although his per-series contract with TVB has already ended, Joe said he will not hesitate to sign with TVB again if the station invites him to take part in the third installment of Tiger Cubs.

Since completing Smooth Talker <以和為貴>, Joe revealed that he is in negotiations to renew his TVB contract. He is also in talks with a Chinese agency and has thought about forming his own company in a joint venture partnership, but the discussion is still currently in its preliminary stages.

Asked how much he plans to invest in this new company, Joe said he does not have a number in mind. “However, I may want to do something for the film industry. If everything succeeds then the company will be active in both Hong Kong and mainland China.”

Would Joe be interested in signing former TVB artistes? Joe laughed and said, “It’s not like that.” What about Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), who may not renew her TVB contract next year? “I don’t know!”

Christine Kuo Looking Healthy

Christine Kuo’s (苟芸慧) weight fluctuated dramatically in the last two years due to hypothyroidism. Looking much skinnier and healthier at the charity event, Christine said she has been taking traditional Chinese medicine to restore her body. She exercises regularly and enjoys hiking in the morning.

      “Enjoying top ratings in its weekend time slot”

      huh? is that true? Aren’t the ratings dropping each week from 25 in opening week to 20 in the 5th week?

      Total bull!

        It’s definitely bull, as the ratings suck (last week, the ratings for TC2 even dipped to 19 points, though the average was still above 20 so I guess that makes it “ok” in TVB’s book). Whoever wrote this article is trying to play with words — I mean, sure if they compare the series to whatever was in that same timeslot previously (which was probably some type of specialty variety program, as that’s usually what airs on the weekends), then of course the ratings would be “high”, since those specialty programs never get ratings even close to 20 points.

        By the way — TC2 is pretty much crap and can’t be compared to the original. It was a bad choice to cast Linda in the tough cop role (I can’t stand her exaggerated / OTT facial expressions trying to look tough — plus her character is annoying), the chemistry between the SDU that was a big part of the first installment is no longer there, and the cases are dull. I gave up on the series already (when I found myself fast-forwarding through half the episode the week before, I knew it was time to stop watching….)

      I do not like Jessica Hsuan…but she is better than Linda Chung anytime. Linda sucks as a policewoman…seeing her act tough makes my hair stand. Oscar the sniper could do with less winking…it’s ok once a while, but he does it every episode.

        It is his signature action so he must repeat it to leave the impression. In real life, it is called the habit.
