Comments: Oh man! I love this! I love the way Gau Mui look at Lau Sing! There's really so much love and yet worry in her eyes (although that could be just a farce)! =D And haha, Pierre is supposed to be playing a good guy this time round, how come he still looks as if he's the bad guy? xD

Trailer 1 for No Regrets!


- Video downloaded from discuss.com.hk
- You are welcomed to request for the trailer. Just leave down your particulars here or in the tag-board. =)

Comments: OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH! This trailer is really, very good! It makes me feel like watching it even more. I totally agree with some people, saying that it was really like a movie trailer. If you guys have watched the Harry Potter movies, the scene whereby the Cheng family raised their glasses and guns totally looked like the Death Eaters raising their wands to acknowledge Voldemort. And yes, the smoke that formed Sheren Tang's name totally looked like Voldemort's Death Mark in Harry Potter! Coolness to the max! I am totally loving Gau Mui's arrogance in this trailer! Sheren really, has a very imposing presence! =D I think I will love her character to bits even though she's supposed to be a villain. <3 What do you guys think? Feel free to comment on this post or leave a message in the tag-board! ^^

Mingpao Weekly #2185 - Last review

| Monday, September 27, 2010 | 0 comments |
Below is an excerpt from 朱乐言, who is writing his/her last piece for Mingpao Weekly, I suppose. =/

...还有无线。大台,就要鞭策多些。但,这些日子,大台也风雨飘摇。

陈志云。抄袭。垄断。四大唱片公司交恶。林峯声势下滑。港姐太猪扒……

再数下去,我最后一篇视评完不了。

告别之前,应带给观众希望。香港电视还可发光发热,因为仍有无线剧集。

真的?《公主嫁到》的斗气与斗戏已可满足一切?今年至今为止,《公》剧的确已算上品,但挑最优质的,应是十月十八日出街的《巾帼枭雄之义海豪情》。我担保,剧甫出街,必会引发全城热烘讨论。除了黎耀祥与邓萃雯应否蝉联视帝与视后外,还有剧中的大奸角,竟是践踏中国人民的日军,这一刻风风火火,谁不想痛痛快快打日军?

我预言《巾》剧必胜。那时若手痒,编辑可让我客串写一两篇慰藉一下?

...There's still TVB, who is the dominant company of the media. However, the dominant company must also learn to adapt. These few days, this dominant firm has also lost its way.

Stephan Chan. Accusations of copying. Monopoly. The scandal about the 4 main singing companies. Raymond Lam's declining popularity. Miss Hong Kong being too fat...

If I go on, I'll never finish my last review.

Before bidding farewell, I should offer the TV audience some hope. There is still hope for Hong Kong television, because there are still TVB dramas.

Really? Are you sure that Can’t Buy Me Love really represents all that is good about TVB? From the beginning of the year till now, Can’t Buy Me Love is considered a rather good production, but if I were to choose the best out of the best, it will have to be No Regrets, which will be broadcasted on 18th October 2010. I guarantee, once this drama is broadcasted, it will ignite lively discussions throughout the whole of Hong Kong. Besides seeing whether Wayne Lai and Sheren Tang will be able to win their Best Actor and Best Actress awards again, there are also the main villains in the drama – the Japanese soldiers, who will be stamping on the pride of Chinese people. Who wouldn’t want to beat the Japanese soldiers?

I predict that No Regrets will be a success. If my hands are feeling itchy, may I have the honour to write the review for this drama?


Comments: I heard that he or she is a very prolific writer in Mingpao. If No Regrets really turns out to be a success, I would love to read his/her review on it as well! ^^

Moses Chan thinks that Wayne Lai will become TV King

| | 0 comments |

Although Moses Chan has said that he doesn't mind not getting the prize, both his fists were clenched, implying that he must give the prize this time round.


Based on his role as the 3rd Princess’ husband in Can’t Buy My Love, Moses Chan is being seen as a hot favourite for this year’s TV King. Together with Michelle Yim, Michael Miu etc., he attended Next Magazine’s “Healthy Lifestyle Award” event. He also met Wayne Lai, whose drama No Regrets will be aired next month. The 2 hot favourites for TV King were in a battle of popularity yesterday. Moses thinks that Wayne will be able to win the TV King again.

No strong feelings towards the prize
No wonder Moses Chan was on all smiles yesterday, as he has the chance to become TV King again. However, when asked whether he has the confidence, he replied, “So long as the drama makes the audience happy, it’s enough for me. I won’t eye the award as there are still dramas that have not been broadcasted, such as No Regrets."

- Credits to 21CN.com

Comments: Haha, it's still too early to say who will get which award, but yes, I do hope that the most deserving ones will get their due. Moses also mentioned that he is looking forward to Sheren's performance. Of course, if Wayne and Sheren manages to shine in No Regrets, then why not award them the Best Actor and Best Actress again, if they truly deserve it? =)

Gun Metal Grey prepares to take on No Regrets!

| Friday, September 24, 2010 | 0 comments |
After the fiasco over Stephan Chan’s corruption case, the battle between the TVB executives has once again heated up! According to the Hong Kong media, between October and November (TVB Anniversary months) every year, it will be 2 dramas that fight to be the best of the best. This is the battle between Catherine Tsang and Tommy Leung and it has been going on for years. They have both won and lost. However, in recent years, Tsang’s dramas have been very well-received and critically-acclaimed, and they include Heart of Greed and Rosy Business. In order not to lose to Tsang’s dramas, Leung has decided to push Gun Metal Grey, which stars Felix Wong and Michael Miu, to compete with Tsang’s No Regrets.

Tommy Leung changes strategy
Last year, Leung’s drama Born Rich was defeated by Tsang’s Beyond the Realm of Conscience. He does not want to lose again, hence he decided against broadcasting Relics of an Emissary, which stars Sammul Chan and Kate Tsui and switched to police drama Gun Metal Grey instead.

In September this year, Leung’s Growing Through Life was defeated by Tsang’s Can’t Buy Me Love. Growing Through Life, which is being led by Raymond Lam, Bosco Wong, Damian Lau and Cecilia Yip, has received poor reception, with the average ratings being only 27 points. However, Can’t Buy Me Love, which is being led by Moses Chan and Charmaine Sheh, has been getting an average rating of 33 points. Leung saw that he could not afford to lose to Tsang again, hence he decided to use Gun Metal Grey as this year’s Anniversary series.

It was said that Relics of an Emmisary was taken out because it was led by younger cast members. Felix Wong’s come-back to TVB and the collaboration between the "2 Tigers" was also the main selling point of Gun Metal Grey, and therefore, guaranteed ratings. Also, Leung’s E.U. was also very well-received by the Hong Kong audience. It is no wonder that he has confidence in police dramas.

In reponse to such a change, when the Hong Kong media approaced Leung for clarification, he said, "The anniversary series are determined by the programmes department. It was said that Relics of an Emmisary was first chosen, but they decided againse it due to the background of the drama. (Are you confident of Gun Metal Grey?) As for confidence, you must ask the producer, but I have watched this drama and I think it’s good."

Catherine Tsang snatches the limelight 
Cathering Tsang was in-charge of dramas such as Heart of Greed, Moonlight Resonance, Rosy Busines and Beyond the Realm of Conscience. These dramas have received high ratings and good reception. For the last 2 years, her dramas have swept all the major awards in the TVB Anniversary Awards. In the battle between Leung and herself, the most classic example was the clash between Born Rich, which starred Gallen Lo, Ray Lui, Jaime Chik and Anita Yuen, and Beyond the Realm of Conscience. In the end, Beyond the Realm of Conscience had ratings of 35 points, with the highest being 50 points, setting the record for Hong Kong television. Born Rich was lambasted for being boring and therefore, had poor ratings.

This year, Tsang’s pre-modern drama, No Regrets, which is being produced by ace producer Lee Tim Shing and led by TV King and Queen Wayne Lai and Sheren Tang, has been highly anticipated by many even though it has not been aired yet as there are many discussion points for this drama.

Regarding the battle between the 2 executives, Wayne Lai said, "Throughout these few years, the programmes department has arranged dramas according to their topics, so I am guessing that this time round, they arranged No Regrets and Gun Metal Grey to be Anniversary series as they have different topics. I hope that these 2 dramas will have good ratings, so that both sides may win." No Regrets’ producer Lee Tim Shing has confidence for his drama. "Everybody hopes that this drama will rewrite the ratings record for Hong Kong. Whether we will eventually succeed is not known, but Lee Tim Shing humbly said that police dramas have always been a ratings guarantee, so he hopes that both No Regrets and Gun Metal Grey will succeed.

Comments: I hope both dramas will succeed, but of course, there's a reason why I set up this blog. I echo Producer Lee's wish. I want to see No Regrets rewrite the ratings records for Hong Kong i.e. hit at least 51 points. Rosy Business could have hit at least 50 points, but it didn't because the high-definition TV ratings were not taken into account. Therefore, I really hope that No Regrets will really have No Regrets. People in Hong Kong, do give your greatest support to No Regrets! =D

His eldest daughter CHENG KAU-MUI (Sheren Tang) who is an unscrupulous person soon returns from Shanghai to reap the rewards. MUI meticulously plans her every move.

On the other hand, LAU SING (Wayne Lai) is the leader of the Criminal Investigation Team. He has worked hard all his life to ensure an easy trail for his family, especially for his bed-ridden younger sister LAU CHING (Fala Chen). Despite his hot temper, he values friendship and brotherhood more than anything else. Once, he almost sacrificed his life to help his timid teammate, TONG KAT (Pierre Ngo).

It is fated that MUI and SING should meet each other and survive many calamities. It is also fated that both are fierce contenders who will never give in, although mutual understanding and affection slowly grows between them.

Meanwhile, the Japanese army invades China and Guangzhou falls into the hands of the Japanese. MUI enters the darkest time in her life when her aunt CHENG LONG-HEI (Susan Tse) frames her.

Will SING always be by her side?

Mingpao Weekly #2184 TVB Anniversary series draw swords - Tommy Leung battles Catherine Tsang

Every year, TVB's anniversary series will become the battle between the 2 biggest heads, Catherine Tsang and Tommy Leung. They battle ratings as well as performances. However, last year, Born Rich, which was under Tommy, was defeated by Catherine's Beyond the Realm of Conscience. Moreover, Catherine's series have been doing very well in ratings in recent years, so Tommy had to choice but to lose. For this year, Tommy had wanted to push Relic of an Emmisary to turn tables against Catherine, but now is intending to use Gun Metal Grey, which stars Felix Wong and Michael Miu to fend off a strong competitor from Catherine's side, No Regrets.

Comments: Wow! I'm really looking forward to both No Regrets and Gun Metal Grey, since both their storylines are really very attractive! Of course, I'm hoping for No Regrets to succeed even more! ^^ Hopefully they'll break the ratings record, since the last episode will be aired on a Sunday (28/11/2010), which will surely attract more people to watch. Go go go, No Regrets! Please really make this No Regrets! =D

Comments: Yay! Sheren Tang is finally coming back to Hong Kong! I was so worried that she wouldn't be able to make it back for No Regret's promotional activities since she was in China filming her new drama, "The New Huan Zhu Ge Ge". But since she's the first female lead in No Regrets, I don't think she will miss her promotional activities. Hopefully my cousin can catch a glimpse of her again! xD
