HKTV dramas compete with TVB

By on November 26th, 2014 | Uncategorized

The Election

We’ve added a new section for HKTV Dramas – the newest Hong Kong television station that has scoped out a lot of former TVB artistes. It’s great to have to more competition as TVB was pretty much monopolizing the TV series scene in Hong Kong since ATV productions usually can’t compete in ratings. HKTV’s dramas appear to look more gritty (versus TVB’s bright and colorful filming), stylistically more like movies, and deals with darker themes.

HKTV’s current dramas are “The Election” and “The Borderline”. “The Election” in particular resonates with Hong Kong’s youth of today as it is highly relevant to the protests going on right now in Hong Kong.

Linda Chung Big Wheel

Recently at the ceremony for Big Wheel, Linda Chung has expressed that she will avoid sex scenes as much as possible. Those scenes are off limits. When asked if it’s because rumored boyfriend Philip Ng doesn’t allow her to do so? She stressed it’s solely her personal choice and has nothing to do with her image. Interestingly enough, it is said that Kate Tsui’s rape and bed scenes in High and Lows have put her in the running for the winning the TV queen battle. In response to that, Linda expressed that good actresses don’t necessarily have to do sex scenes and that it’s all personal choice. What do you think?
