    Linda might be singing the themesong to this series. It's confirmed that she will be on TVB's upcoming All About Women CD to be released next month, so there's a high chance that her song will be the themesong to the series. However, it's not confirmed yet.

    Hopefully someone will translate the news soon.

    It's been such a long time since TVB produced a mythical series! The last one was Gods of Honour back in early 2000. The costumes aren't too appealing, but it's a good producer (I really like most of his work) and a nice cast, so I'm hopeful it will be a good series. From trying to read the news, I think Linda's role will be a "yiu lui" (temptress) and an "old lady?" Linda says she's worried about the make-up because her skin is very sensitive and this is her first costume drama. She's also not worried about rumors with Benny because they worked together on The Bitter Bitten and nothing happened. Benny said it's very special for him to work on this series because 10 years ago, producer Lee Ting Seng asked him to be on Semi-Gods and Demi-Devils.

    I might give it a go since I like this genre, but frankly, from the pics, Nancy looks mroe like a "yiu nui" than Linda.

    I can't wait till the story comes out. But the costumes look too complicated and colourful. Must be pre-Qin era.

    News!

    TVB's new series, "Sau Sun Chuen" (literal translation- Searching for God Chronicles) held its costume fitting yesterday. The series stars Sunny Chan Kam Hung, Benny Chan Ho Man, Linda Chung Ka Yan, Helena Tam Siu Wan, Stephen Au Kam Tong,and Nancy Wu Ding Yan.

    In the series, Linda will have many new challenges, such as playing a seductress, ugly woman, and old woman. One of her images include a large mole on her face. Asked if Linda expects her "ugly" image to be as successful as Angela Tong Ying Ying's in "Life Made Simple," Linda said, "I will not have such big expectations. But as the series allows new experimentation, I am looking forward to the challenge!"

    Linda said she does not mind appearing with an ugly image in the series. But she is worried about the make-up that she needs to put on for her old image. "I am afraid of appearing as an old woman the most. My skin is very sensitive and I am concerned with the amount of make-up I will need to put on."


    Linda said this will be the second time that she will be playing a goddess. There will be a lot of action sequences in the series, so there will be a need for wirework. There will be a love triangle between Sunny, Linda, and Benny, but the plot's main focus will not be on the love relationships. Also Linda said that she is not afraid of possible rumors between Benny Chan and her as the both of them have collaborated before.

    "Sau Sun Chuen" will be similiar to TVB's previous productions, "Gods of Honor" and "Journey to the West." In the new series, Sunny Chan, Benny Chan, and Linda Chung will achieve godly status, becoming the gods of Fook, Sau, Luk (Luck, Wealth, and Longevity).

    Benny arrived a little late to the costume fitting. His voice was hoarse, as the night before, he met with the cast and crew of "A Pillowcase of Mystery" to celebrate the high ratings. Benny said that "A Pillowcase of Mystery" had special significance for him as it has been 10 years since he has joined TVB. His first series was in "Semi Gods Semi Devils" produced by Lee Tim Sing and coincidentally Lee also produced "A Pillowcase of Mystery" as well. Benny joked and said that he deserves a 10 year anniversary award from TVB.

    Benny has had prior experience acting in fantasy dramas. Benny said that in the new series, he will have a scene where his clothes would burst apart. "But my underwear will definitely not explode onscreen. The series will air during prime time, so it will be suitable for the whole family to watch!"

    As news broke earlier on Nancy Wu's romance with Deep Ng Ho Hong, Nancy tried to avoid the reporters yesterday. When the reporters congratulated her on the relationship, Nancy said "Happy Birthday," a totally irrelevant response.

    When the reporters pointed out that Deep seems to care more about the relationship, Nancy said, "Well girls like to keep these things inside. Also dating is personal matter, so it is best to talk about work." Deep said that Nancy was hard to pursue? "No, that's not true!" But Nancy did reveal that the two of them spent a romantic Valentine's Day together.

    ---------------------------------------

    Very excited to hear that Linda's role will have so many personalities/characteristics. Seems like she's always doing these multi-personality roles. Can't wait to see her "ugly" image.

    TVB has been giving Benny so many series with new actresses as lead.

    Yea, Nancy does look quite scary but great for a villain. Great producer btw.

    Before this comes out, The Bitter Bitten will probably come out first so I think if you start watching that and you like her there then you'd probably enjoy this more.

    LOL yea, i think na zha is supposed to be a kid, but maybe it was benny chan who spoiled it in Gods of honour so everyone thinks na zha is an adult or something :P

    frankly i'm not really into mythical series, and i only watched Journey to the West because of Dicky Cheung and Wayne Lai. i've read some of the mythical novels and TVB doesnt really follow 100% from the novels so its no fun anymore ...
