    Hmm, I'm not suprised that his albums didn't sell well. His acting is probably better than his singing. Yeah, when I first saw him in Slim Chances I had no idea who he was and thought he was some newcomer. It wasn't until recently I discovered that he had been in the entertainment business for so long.

    He was in more series than I thought he was. Yeah, I agree. I prefer Kevin as a lead more than Joe, even though Kevin needs some more improvement. I don't know why but I prefer Joe Ma as supporting instead.

    Not sure if he's working on any other projects. I think the most recent is Yummy Yummy. What is this series about anyways? Food? I'm not too happy that Charmaine's in it though but I like the rest of the cast. I saw Kevin and her in PONR and they didn't look compatible. I still think he is most compatible with Annie Man.

    Haha, I'll pick him over Joe Ma too, but I prefer not to see Joe at all. Not even in supporting roles. I just don't like him.

    What's wrong with having TVB both promote Kevin and Joe? I think TVB should give those actors who have been playing supporting roles a chance than bringing in newbies to act in their series.

    I like Joe in his lead roles....he's been playing supporting roles too long it's ABOUT time he gets to stretch his wings and fly in showbiz.

    Kevin also starred in two taiwanese series in 1999 with Jimmy Lin and Alec Su in Legendary Siblings and he also starred in another called Legend of Heaven and Earth--The Mermaid with Roger Kwok in 2000 or 2002?

    I think Joe is a good actor but there's just something about him I can't stand watching when he is the lead. I don't quite like some of the newbies, especially Ron Ng. I'd rather watch Joe than watch Ron. But you are right Suet Seung, TVB should give the supporting actors/actresses a chance. It is good that TVB is has finally given Joe a chance since he has worked so hard all these years.

    I didn't know that Kevin has also starred in Taiwan series too. I've only watched the beginning of those two series so had no idea he was in them.

    Hehe, I've seen Kevin in quite a few series now and at first I really did not like him at all. Can't seem to remember/know the reason why I didn't like him. It was just something. But after watching him in Hard Fate I started liking him again. I really adored his character in there as well as his acting

    Yeah, I remember seeing him in those two Taiwan series. The villian in both series, but now that I think back he did pretty okay. Though I disliked both his characters in there. Did pity him a bit in LS though at the end.

    Thanks for the profile botan ^_^ Hehe, I didn't know that much about him even though I went through a little "craze" on him. Hehe, its great to see that he is very close to Wong Hei, Maggie, and Stephan!! Lol, they all got to film together in BF2, I wonder is that when they got really close?

    Anyways finished watching him in Placebo Cure a little while ago and I liked his character. Overall I liked him yet at certain points I really though argh!!!

    Well, nothing wrong with promoting Joe Ma. It's just that I don't like him. Kevin's acting is not necessarily better, but at least he's more bearable. Just my personal preference though.

    There's nothing wrong with promoting Joe Ma...but maybe we should get back on the topic of Kevin.

    I really liked Kevin and Flora together in Hard Fate, do you think they'll work together again? It's too bad that they didn't end up together.

    Chances are not high. Flora has left TVB.

    Kevin will surely have opportunities to work with other TVB "fa dan"s though.

    Wow. People have said his singing career wasn't great but I don't think his singing is that bad. I think Kevin sounds very sweet.

    Kevin's been in a taiwanese adaptation of Jin yong's novel called Legendary Siblings . But uh it's a bad adaptation so don't watch it.

    He actually does have a good singing voice, quite solid. Unfortunately, I think his recording company at that time failed to market him properly, amongst other things. But well, the entertainment line is fraught with lots of uncertainties and talent doesn't always equate to success in this circle. In fact, Kevin may actually be one of the luckier ones as he has since found other opportunities in acting and is doing pretty well (with lots of hard work of course ).

    I just finished watching Hard Fate and I absolutely loved him in there!! TVB definitely has made the right casting decision with Kar Ming! Not to mention he looked so compatible with Niki Chow Apart from Kevin, the story was engaging and the acting was great, especially from Damien Lau. This serial has successfully climbed into one of my all-time favourite TVB serials!

    I'm actually still in a dilemma as to whether to rent Split Seconds or not cos I would love to watch Kevin as an inspector but reviews of this serial has been mixed, with most gearing towards the negative side.... Suggestions anyone?
