Ruco Chan, Linda Chung at “Big Apothecary” Costume Fitting

After Brother’s Keeper <巨輪>, Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) will reunite onscreen in new TVB period drama, Big Apothecary <大藥坊>. The pair will be entangled in a love rectangle with Raymond Wong (黃浩然) and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠).  Producer Tsui Ching Hong’s (徐正康) new drama also stars Shirley Yeung (楊思琦), Ngo Ka Nin (敖嘉年), Samantha Ko (高海寧), and returning veteran artist, Pat Poon (潘志文).

Portraying the first female doctor in China, Linda said that she will have to spend extra time memorizing the script due to the jargon of Chinese medicinal herbs. At today’s costume fitting, when she was once again teased about her romantic rumors with Ruco, Linda laughed embarrassingly, “Please don’t be unfair to Ruco and insist that he [pursued me]!”

Ruco grew to understand Linda’s personality during the several months spent together filming Brother’s Keeper. He maintains that they cannot be more than friends. To avoid further misunderstandings, Ruco joked, “This time I will not be as immersed [in the character’s love emotions]!”

Big Apothercary will also mark Shirley Yeung’s return to acting in dramas. Hosting various variety programs for the last four years, Shirley suffered a slew of negative rumors when she gave birth to daughter Krystal out of wedlock in March 2012. Although she portrays a married woman who seduces Ngo Ka Nin in the drama, Shirley is not concerned about overly revealing scenes due to the restrictions of television dramas.

        Well, if TVB wants to promote Linda Chung and have her run for 2014 Best Actress (I doubt Linda will win this year), then Apothecary will most likely be 2014’s anniversary drama… or it will air around the anniversary time.

      i must say TVB is out of artists. There’re always the same faces collaborating together all the times. I get so tired of watching the same people times after times and not to mention the poor scripts and worst casting. That’s why I stopped watching TVB.

      I like the duo: Ruco and Ray W. They look like really good friends on and offscreen.

      Linda looks a bit awkward in her costume. Don’t think she’s good in premodern/ancient.

      • sandcherry replied:

        Whenever Ruco Chan and Raymond Wong are both cast in the same drama series, Ruco is the 1st lead actor now because of his management contract with TVB. Raymond Wong is on a per-series contract. Kind of unfair for Raymond Wong. Both of them are very good actors.

        • polypeptide replied:

          But in slow boat home, i couldn’t help but noticed that Raymond’s screen time was more than Ruco’s. Did he sign the management contract before he filmed that drama?

        • yuna replied:

          Yes, Raymond Wong was the main character in Slow Boat Home. The entire series revolved around his character.

          I think Raymond Wong and Ruco Chan are “equal” in terms of leading status. The reason why Ruco is leading over Raymond now is most likely because of the producer’s preference.

          I honestly don’t think Raymond Wong really cares, so I wouldn’t say it’s unfair for him. He’s been with TVB long enough to know how the politics work.

          To be fair, Ruco’s acting level is way above Raymond Wong who’s most notable for his ripped body and babyfaced more than his acting. It makes sense that Ruco’s status is above Raymond.

      Yeah hopefully I get to see this drama. I love brothers keeper. I think it’s really good! Makes me want to see them continuously. I do agree that pairings in TVB dramas should change them around. Rucco and Linda is very cute together. Edwin can also pair with Linda. Rucco and Kate together would be a hot couple since they both got some thick lips. NICE

        Agree.
        He should be one of those actors that’s allowed to wear glasses when filming, like Lawrence Ng. Both looks good with glasses.

      I’m not happy that this series is revolving around Linda after watching her hyped best actress performance in BK. That was it? Where was the so called powerful SARS scene?

      They better give Ruco equal footing in the series and Linda better improve her acting to match Ruco’s strength. She can’t keep up to Ruco at all in BK and that makes it hard to connect to them as a couple!
