Lawrence Ng and Carman Lee Film “M Club”

It has been well over a month since TVB’s upcoming drama M Club, previously known as Aerobic Girls, began filming, but production has not been going so well due to the rainy summer weather of Hong Kong.

When Rachel Lee (李麗珍) and Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) were filming in Central earlier this week, a simple scene that could have taken only a few minutes to film had to take a few hours to complete because of the rain.

The rainy climate did not improve on July 24. Filming in West Kowloon, it took three hours for Rachel and costar Carman Lee (李若彤) to complete one camera shot. While they were resting at a nearby restaurant waiting for the rain to stop, Carman could not stop yawning and looked genuinely disinterested. Rachel stared mindlessly at the rain and was very quiet.

Despite looking tired and frustrated, Carman was a diligent worker and completed her scenes rather quickly. Filming in a bakery shop in the busy afternoon streets of West Kowloon, Carman attracted numerous fans at the scene. Some shouted “Little Dragon Girl” and expressed that she has gotten really skinny.

M Club, produced by Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and Joe Chan (陳維冠), is a loose adaptation of the Korean filmSunny, a film about seven high school friends who meet each other again 25 years later. M Club also stars Flora Chan (陳慧珊), Angie Cheong (張慧儀), Elvina Kong (江欣燕), Gloria Yip (葉蘊儀), and Fennie Yuen (袁潔瑩). With the exception of Flora, Elvina, and Lawrence, it has been over ten years since the main cast last filmed a TVB drama.

Rookie actresses Anjaylia Chan (陳嘉寶), Venus Wong (王敏奕), AOA’s Annice Wu (吳燕菁), Jeannie Chan (陳瀅), Winki Lai (賴慰玲), Kandy Wong (黃山怡), Super Girls’ Cheronna Ng (吳嘉熙), and Matthew Ho(何廣沛) will be portraying the main leads’ high school counterparts. Teresa Mo (毛舜筠) will take on the role as acting coach for the young stars.

Produced at 30 episodes, the filming of M Club is expected to be completed by late August 2013.

    1. LOL, common it’s Eric Tsang we are talking abt obviously he meant club. However yr answer is indeed more descriptive.

      1. Lol, so a more descriptive title should be Menopausal club.

        m&m club!
        Product placement right there.

      2. Hahaha, TVB should hire you to get rid off their lame names…

    2. I was wondering if it does mean “Menopausal club” too. Goodness, TVB is really getting lame with the English names.

  1. filming is expected to finish by late August 2013? is that possible? maybe they should take more time to complete to ensure the quality of the drama

    1. This is TVB here, so why are we shocked? They always rush and overwork their cast and crew. When did they start?? If it is only 30 eps, then filming should not take that long. I remember some series in China(and they are known to not rush as much)which were also 30 eps took only about 2 and a half months to finish and it still turned out good. BXJ 2007 took that long at 30 eps and still turned out great.

  2. that actor has always looked serpentine to me – is he part German?

    1. Do Germans look serpentine to you?

      I think he looks more Thai than an Asian/European mix.

      1. yes they have a jurassic undercurrent sometimes more obvious like the German in Inglorious Basterds who gets kilt by he Basterds and the vampire faces in Buffy and the Weeping Angels in Doctor Who:

        not very Hugh Grant, is he?

  3. With all hype about eric tsang coming to safe tvb and all and the best they can come up is a remake of a korean series?

    1. I was wondering the same thing. I think it would have been better if he invested in a nice wuxia/ancient with a good plot. That would have been more interesting instead of a remake of a Korean story.

  4. Why the name change? Aerobic Girls is a very catchy name. M Girls sounds kinda generic.

  5. They ruined the series by putting a bunch of lengmos in it

    1. how is it ruined? you haven’t seen watched a single episode yet. don’t make such snappy judgments

    2. I don’t think any of the younger girls are lengmos though. Most of them are singers.
