TVB series “Beauty of the Game” talks about TV stars doing bad things to one another in order to be the best. Reflecting the dark side of the entertainment circle. Sharon Chan and Chris Lai both feel that the circle isn’t as bad as people think. Sharon stated that the current Fa Dan’s are good friends. There is only healthy competition and no such thing as competing to be the best.
In the series Sharon portrays a drug addict actress who competes with Kate Tsui and Christine Ng. Sharon expressed that she has never encountered incidents from the series in real life. She said “I don’t think the entertainment circle is that complicated. My life does not contain the words “Don’t get along” because I feel if something is wrong we should discuss it”. (Which industry is most complicated?) “I hear that movie and music industries have the most social events. The TV industry rarely has night life”. (Is the Fa Dan competition very big?) “It’s healthy competition, currently the Fa Dan’s are very playful, such as Tavia Yeung and Myolie Wu. We have a lot of fun and we encourage each other and are very happy”.
Chris Lai feels that the entertainment circle isn’t the only industry that is complicated. He said “I have had many jobs, such as working in a book store, bank and then working in the entertainment circle. I feel that the entertainment circle is most simple compared to the others. A lot of the time you need connections however the audience can see things clearly and fairly. Just like Wayne Lai (Chai Gao) he performed very natural and the audience supports that”.
In addition, the pair play a couple in the series, will they also choose to date someone from the entertainment industry? Sharon said “If I choose someone from the industry I would choose Kenneth Ma and Chris Lai because they are more innocent compared to other guys. They also take care of their parents. But I rather not choose someone from the industry because I don’t want to talk about work while we are dating”. Chris doesn’t mind whether they are within the industry or not, most important is that she is easy going and understands him.

Comments: aw… Sharon would choose Kenneth or Chris. lol. how sweet.
Sharon Chan and Kenneth Ma were shooting for “Starry Kitchen”. As for Amigi Chui’s recent news incident, both of them believe that he isn’t that type of person. Kenneth stated that it’s unfair to Amigo since he’s not made an public appearance and we haven’t got his version of the incident. He hopes things will end soon. Sharon said “It’s not right for a man to beat up a woman. I believe he isn’t that type of person. He is very close to his colleagues. He is a good person. I wasn’t there so can’t comment”.

Comments: Glad to see Sharon & Kenneth on Starry Ktichen 😀 About Amigo, well, I don’t think he’s innocent of the ‘crime’ but I do find Elizabeth and her display of old SMS and pictures and coming out so publicly about it kinda suspicious…seems like a publicity tactic to me..iono…I’m not saying it didn’t happen, but that it seems like she’s milking it and totally trying to ruin Amigo’s career…
Sry for the lack of updates. I am overwhelmed and exhausted from work 😦 No more bumming for me haha. I realized I have lost like complete contact w/ my Staff as well….haha…and I’m totally to blame. Carmen has translated a bunch of stuff I haven’t even posted and I don’t even feel right sending her more stuff to translate….And I don’t know where Cami is anymore! We used to talk through youtube…but her account is gone now…Cami if you see this and you’re out there…reply! haha.
Back to Kenneth. This stuff is old news now, but w/e. 😛
Shall We State the Case 談情說案 (Tam Ching Suet On) aka the FungYi series
- Kenneth is confirmed but he is just guest starring in the series. For how much, no one is really sure.
- The series is inspired by Japanese TV series ‘Detective Galileo’ about crime solving and love.
- Tavia and Kenneth will have ‘no’ romantic connect (unfortunately) and he’ll just be playing her superior
- The Producer is Lau Ka Ho and he said that the series will be more focused on romance
In Tavia’s recent ‘Green Room’ aka Today’s VIP interview (link below) she stated that she and Kenneth are not fated to be lovers (haha. same thing Myolie said before), that usually they just ‘walk pass each other’ in series. Even in the new series, he is only her superior. (aww…i guess Tavia knew ppl were getting their hopes up or wondering so she said it very definitel that they don’t have a relationship in the series!) Of the younger generation, Kenneth is the only one she hasn’t gotten a chance to work w/ much so she wants to work with him and knows that he wants to work w/ her (ha. Yeah the whole world knows that!) And interviewer Carlo Ng poked fun saying that he thought Kenneth only wants to work with Kate. Tavia pointed to the camera ppl saying that they are all shaking their heads, “No” that it is someone else. Carlo then laughs and says “Wu…Hang Yee (Myolie)? Or the other one?” Tavia laughs and says “I still don’t know who it is”
I don’t really get Carlo, he seems to only know old news haha. I remember how he commented during the Kate Green Room interview that maybe Kenneth is only so nice to her after she complimented him and she got kinda defensive saying that Carlo shouldn’t say such things and that MaMing is a really good guy to everyone! It’s so random of him to bring up Kate.
Watch Tavia’s interview here (at the end is where she mentions MaMing):
- Kenneth was not present at Miss Virginia Lok’s bday party since he was filming Iron Horse, nor was Kevin, Selena, Shirley, Linda nor Tavia present. (too bad, I really wanted me some BK pix)
- On the same night, Christine Ng and her husband had their anniversary party. I believe, had Kenneth not been working he would have gone/been invited since they seem like good friends. All his buddies went including Sharon, Nancy, Tavia, Joel, etc… (I remember how Kenneth was at Timmy’s bday with Christine and Sharon as well) Sharon, Nancy, & Joel went on to go to Miss Lok’s party while Tavia did not attend (hm..that’s strange oh well)
Since Nancy and Deep Ng broke up, Nancy had been single all ever since, however it turns out that after participating in “Strictly Come Dancing 2”, and through the “fanning help” (a Chinese term meaning to pair two people together) of her good friends Sharon Chan and Christine Ng, Nancy is now dating Kenneth. It is also said that Nancy has now moved to TaiKoo City to be neighbours with Kenneth. It only takes about 5mintues for the two of them to walk to each other’s home.
Kenneth and Nancy had actually known each other for 6 years. They first met when they were both taking part in the filming of “Triumph in the Skies”. But there wasn’t a lot of screen time where the two of them were together. And because Kenneth is a very shy person at the time, he didn’t get to become good friends with Nancy (get to know each other more). Only until last year when they both took part in “Strictly Come Dancing 2” they spent a lot more time together (day and night). And with the help of Christine Ng and Sharon Chan, they just naturally become couples.
Kenneth currently lives in TaiKoo City, it’s not known if Nancy had moved because of Kenneth, but she originally lived with her family in TuenMun, but she has now has moved to TaiKoo City as well. Both Nancy and Kenneth are now being promoted by TVB, in order to avoid negative impacts to their careers, ever since they began dating they decided to keep it very low key, and very protective about their relationship.
Few days ago, the media came across Nancy where she was wearing a cap and was about to leave the parking lot, she was very surprised to see us there. When asked if she was dating with Kenneth, Nancy with a sweet smile said “No! Of course not!” When asked if there are opportunities to develop a relationship she said no one knows what will happen in the future.
Within this industry, Kenneth is known to be a great guy, very caring of his family, and Nancy agrees with this as well and says “He’s famous for being a good boy, he has a very good reputation in the company (TVB), I don’t know if he cares for his family or not, but he’s always mentioning about his mom. When asked if she wants to date she said “I would like to have someone care for me, but I haven’t been dating for a while now, and my (career) performance last year was pretty good, I don’t want to take my focus off of it, but fate is hard to control/say, regardless, I’m just going to put all my efforts into my career/job” then she drove off to have tea with friends at a mall 康怡廣場 (name of a mall).

First off, Kenneth looks absolutely hott! These pix are pretty big so click and enlarge them! U won’t regret it! haha. He looks so good… love the hair, the outfit…too bad the thought of that mustache on him again spoils the moment! I’m glad he’s not wearing that thing everywhere nor is he growing one cuz that would be bad. Omg. He and Sharon look so good together! However, I’m still tempted to stick Bernice’s face over Sharon’s head haha. (I remember Bernice had even bangs b4 too….i can just visualize!)
Apparently, at the Blessing Ceremony, a fan got a hold of him and Kenneth has confirmed to be in “Iron Horse” and he’s been learning Wing Chun! Since we can’t stop this, I hope it’ll only turn out for the best. The producers are the one’s from Moonlight so I’m hoping it won’t be too bad. Hopefully, it’s serious w/ some humor and not the other way around (I can’t stand ridiculous dramas)!
Kevin will be the oldest brother, Kenneth 2nd, 3rd Stephen Wong Ka Lok and Shirley’s their sister (she’ll probably be w/ Heung Joh). Stephen will probably be w/ Natalie…so that leaves Selena and Nancy…and honestly either way I’d be happy, but I really really want something fresh so I’m rooting for KeNancy! Rumor has it that it’s gonna be Kevin-Nancy, but I feel that Selena should be female lead instead of Nancy. Don’t get me wrong, Nancy is my favorite actress (ha. You didn’t know did u?) but I feel that in terms of opportunities to showcase her talents, Nancy just hasn’t received her fair share. Being 2nd lead (along w/ her recent award) is already a huge step for Nancy (tho I want the best for her and she has worked a long time) while for Selena who’s been playing 2nd lead, the next step is 1st lead. I think Nancy can wait just a little longer. She should take on a 2nd lead and show everyone that she’s capable and then get a lead role. As for Selena, the only thing left to prove is that she’s a capable leading lady along the ranks of Linda & Kate (and I KNOW she’s capable).
I also hope that their hairstyles aren’t weird. I hope Kenneth gets to keep his regular hair gelled down or style it like Ray’s from the Sales Presentation. Also, I hope Kenneth gets a good role and gets to shine. I know he will if given a good role, but I’m hoping he doesn’t get downplayed liked in Taichi or LFD or DIE cuz aside from these series, I feel that Kenneth always outshines the lead.
A side note, I was looking thru the forums and found out that when they returned to HK from SCDII, there were a couple of times when Kenneth left in a taxi w/ Nancy…that’s so cute they’re such good friends…I wonder if they live close together or something. Too bad someone said that Nancy says Kenneth’s like a brother to her…but I didn’t hear that! As far as i know, girls rarely call him a brother (Raymond’s the one that gets called the brother haha)…even Sharon was like “he’s doesn’t feel like a brother, but a very good friend”! Oh well, after the whole Deep thing, maybe Nancy will want a more mature guy (since when referring to Nathan, who like Deep is 3 yrs younger than her, she said he’s too young and hyper for her, maybe she’s looking for an older more reliable guy? ~smiles~
Oh well…Happy Holidays to all..! I’m hungry…need my breakfast! haha.
Note to all: I added “The Signs of Kenneth” page which you can check out. (To the right where all the other pages are) It’s basically random stuff, like the meaning of his name, his astrology/zodiac info. TVB actresses (not married) who are compatible in Zodiac w/ him (I’m not doing Astrology…I can’t look up everyone’s bday month haha.), his birth flower, stone, color etc… Some of the personality traits do seem to fit him and i highlighted the interesting things in color. (I remember watching a Astrology/Zodiac show hosted by Margie, Halina, etc and they studied BerMo. It was very strange how the Zodiac outlined an entirely opposite personality for Bernice when compared to the Astrology, but from these readings, the personality of Kenneth seems pretty much similar) Just a fun read!
What did Nancy do?! Haha. these pix are hilarious! So cute. This looks like it was taken during SCDII (Kenneth’s hair from epi 8/9?) so it wasn’t his Bday. So why would everyone ‘cake’ him? Either everyone smudged cake on him w/ their fingers or he stood there and let Nancy give him “cake-makeup”! OMg. that cake looks really good (both in Nancy’s hand and on Kenneth haha)…i’m hungry! Anyone know what really happened? hm…they’re cute together!

Lai Lok Yi’s Blog: http://blog.tvb.com/lailokyi/2008/12/06/09-calendar/
The last clip (Start at 1:25) is way too cute! What in the world is Kenneth doing? He’s so cute! He’s fake kissing LokYi, saying that he’s irresistable (Selena was cracking up!)! He’s such a big kid and so cute! lol. Was the whole posing w/ the big scarf a part of the photoshoot or did he do that himself? you just never know when it’s w/ kenneth! lol. He’s also hugging LokYi in his blog clip..too cute! Couldn’t hear what he said before in the clip about Lokyi giving all his show money to him! lol. They’re such good friends! By the way both guys list the people in the calendar u notice who they’re closest to. Shirley seems like such an outsider in the group…(someone’s cute siggy on the forums!)

Anita Yuen: Afraid of Gallen’s Facial Hairs
Credits: Gallen Harbour
Anita Yuen, Gallen Lo, Joe Ma, Kenneth Ma… are currently filming their latest drama, 金钱诱罪 (”Grand Entrepreneur”, tentative). The plot called for a scene in which Gallen was trying to court Anita by deliberately bumping into her while holding a bunch of balloons. Anita and Gallen, despite knowing each other for a long time, collaborate for the first time here in “Grand”. About his new image with the goatee, Anita laughed “His facial hairs might make me think twice about our intimate scenes. He actually looks very handsome already without (the goatee). Maybe I’m just not used to it.”
When asked whether she was afraid of rumors, as “Grand” has quite a grand cast, Anita replied “It doesn’t matter how many people you have on the cast, rumors will be generated. I’m not worried!”
Gallen is quite pleased with the way his character looks: “I’ve never tried having facial hairs before. It feels cool. Anita isn’t used to it, though. She’s afraid they will poke her!” [She said you’re already handsome without facial hairs] “Thanks for her good words.”
Gallen is not the only one with facial hairs but joined by Kenneth Ma. Ken: “My first time too. I think guys with facial hairs look very cool!”
* Haha. I guess Kenneth gets to grow some facial hair and he’s happy about it! I guess he’d never thought about doing that in real life so he’s happy to live it out during a series. After all, I think he said that you can do stuff in a series that you’re afraid to do in reality. So good for him. As long as he’s enjoying himself haha…
New Series: The Pride For My Husband 老公萬歲
I was looking thru AF and found this….I wish it were true, then there’d be KenNancy! I’m not too sure…it’s probably not true anyways! Is it me or does it seem that any series w/out a confirmed male cast makes ppl think of Kenneth? I mean, there are rumors taht he’ll be in on Palace Scheme if Moses doesn’t have time to film? (and Kevin gets to be emperor instead?) …I don’t know, I actually would rather Kenneth get a small production and lead himself (not “Iron” though)…a modern one….
I guess all these rumors are coming up cuz Kenneth isn’t confirmed for anything after “Grand”. We’ll see. Anyone know when “Man In Charge” will come out? Are they gonna warehouse it? Does anyone remember if any Kenneth series, and if so, which ones have been warehoused b4?
More pix from Grace’s TVB Blog of the Myolie Concert!
Kenneth’s Hiding! haha.
Haha. Kenneth looks like such a weirdo in this pic. He’s so cute! haha. I would expect something like that from LokYi! Hmmm…he’s sitting w/ Nancy again!
Is the drink w/ the Lemon slice in it Kenneth’s Lemon Ice Tea?
He always has a cap handy! How polite of him to take it off during the concert haha…
Don’t know how i missed this pic from Sharon’s blog. aw…ShaKen look so cute together! (and there’s LokYi too haha…) And i see Selena in the back (bt Lokyi and ah Sheh)
First off, I think this is part IV. I’m too lazy to check! I’m very disappointed that Toby got cut from the cast as well (She’ll be filming some Mainland series w/ Ray and Bosco) and has been replaced by Grace. I guess she shouldn’t have so much Kenneth in a row or else she’ll really fall for him! haha. I actually preferred the original two girls over the new two ones. I like Sharon, but you know, it’s BK! As for Toby and Grace, I’ve always liked Toby since her singer days but I was disappointed when she turned over to acting. Wow, Grace’s first series and already a Grand Production! (I have a feeling that her acting may not be that great…maybe cuz of the accent … I hope I’m wrong) I’m not feeling the haircut for Sharon from the costume fitting either!
Back to Toby. I was looking forward for her to work w/ Kenneth again so I could Sharon and Toby blog stalk. I know Grace will probably take pix w/ Kenneth too, but she has a TVB blog and it’s so censored. Toby at least make her own posts.
Glad that Toby replies to comments and …in ENGLISH! haha. Here are a few regarding Kenneth and the Anniversary night pix.
i know, looks cute though!!!!
i know, he is the shy boy!!!! i hope 2 wk with him again real soon!!!!
thanks 4 ur support and yes he is really cute ga!!!!!
These three comments were all in reply to fans’ comments made about Kenneth. Every “cute” was referenced to MaMing! haha. Aw…Kenneth is so shy!
Kenneth is just beyond cute. In the Sales Presentation interview clips, you see Kenneth lurking over Christine’s shoulder! Majorly creepy and cute! haha. (This clip was from wongchungchak.com, which I posted a link to here.)
Caps from GoAmigo forum posted by Carmen @ MKMC
Kenneth looks so cute laughing. I love those lines around his eyes when he smiles or laughs!
It’s regretful that B2 can’t be in this series…I love “官宝”so much! But it’s not the official info. Someone met Kenneth after the show of forty-first anniversary and heard that Kenneth told some B2 fans that she might not participate the series.
My english is really poor….
Well…there’s no hope I feel..but I secretly want to be surprised by Bernice appearing at the costume fitting in two weeks…but I know that’s not happening…Well, for now, there’s a mag regarding the Sales Presentation up on http://hyn5-hyn5.blogspot.com/ so take a look. Wonder what it says about Kenneth and Bernice? (her role before it got replaced)
Also, Raymond’s fans screaming for Ma Ming at last night’s awards ceremony because Raymond’s fans were standing in front of Ma Ming’s fans and they knew that Ma Ming’s fans had a ticket limitation to go to the ceremony. So, Raymond’s fans helped them scream for Ma Ming’s name. The media and Ma Ming were confused because the fans were holding Raymond signs, but screaming for Ma Ming’s name.
Nice to hear that all fans are among friends. Very nice! hyn5 also posted that Kenneth won’t be in DIEII because the director of “Grand” won’t allow him to run from series to series. Wow. Very serious director…I won’t if he had a role in not allowing Bernice to film….? 😡
Ma ming & moi
mA mIng sooooooOO cuTe!!!!
Haha. Toby really does like Kenneth! She said he was cute! He looks so shy. I see another hand on Sonija’s arm, I bet he was surrounded by the ladies, that’s why he looked so shy! haha. aw…Sonija was there too, reminds me of DIE. Maming is simply irresistible! (Aha! I somehow knew it was Sharon standing there!)
Yin’s pix post Awards Presentation: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=45057&l=14374&id=537654964
Videos of Fans waiting for Kenneth after the show:
He said that there are about two weeks left of filming for ‘General Chai’ (haha. poor Toby will be heartbroken…) He is anticipating the Grand production with Gallen and is really excited since he will be playing Gallen’s younger brother! yay. he’s one of the brothers. I think someone in the forums almost mentioned he’s confirmed to die midway and that something about DIE2. I don’t know… I tried to babelfish it haha.
Also, apparently some Raymond fans were there (from a blog of one of them – I babelfished that too haha) and they were screaming Kenneth’s name. They kept screaming MaMing! making reporters and everyone look at them. Kenneth seemed confused that they were screaming his name while holding signs that said “Fung” on it! haha. that’s cute!
Kenneth’s msg to fans…translation available here. So cute!
BAD NEWS: According to hyn5, there will be no BK!
Here is her msg:
Bernice is not in the 40 episodes series anymore. Ma Ming said so himself. Now, Sharon will be in it. TVB arrange for Bernice to be in a Western movie, that is why she wasn’t at the awards ceremony. No Ma Ming and Berncie!
Truly, I’m devestated. Stinkin’ TVB. Darnit! He was so excited about this production and it would’ve been perfect! I knew it! I knew it! It was too good to be true. Since the news leaked, I kept telling myself to not get my hopes up and guess what I did? When the Sales Presentation screen caps came out, I let my hopes get up! And now I’m heartbroken! Argh TVB, if they didn’t say there’d be BK in the first place, I wouldn’t be so upset. I would’ve been content w/ Kenneth and Sharon. And they do this?! I thought there had been negotiations about Bernice in a western film since last year. Shouldn’t they have known sooner? grr….. I’m agravated, but there’s nothing that can be done now.
I’m just surprised Kenneth fans found out before Bernice fans. So that explains why she was a no-show at the Anniversary. Is she somewhere else right now? I’m selfish, I want BK haha.(I want the film to be pushed back so they’ll replace Sharon w/ Bernice again!)
Someone go and ask Kenneth to find Bernice and take a few nice photos with her to make us all happy again! haha. Yet another year without BK….how long do we have to wait… even Berray/Ronnice/Bobe/Bermo fans have it way better than we BK fans do… At least they attend functions together and take pix together!
Hi, I am not really a Kenneth fan. Just read in discuss forum and thought you may like to know:
More about 金錢誘罪: (credits: vicky039 @ KF.C)
After the award ceremony, 馬明 told Bernice Liu’s fans that Bernice will not be in the series (另有安排). (from vicky039 @ KF.C)
From 陳敏之國際影迷會: Sharon Chan will be in this series.
钟嘉欣FAN紫色凝眸：(source: vicky039 @ KF.C)
You guys must know already about Sharon. Costume fitting is 11/24, filming from Dec-Mar. A poster saw in the news: Kenneth will play a villain, he likes to “cheat eat cheat drink”.
Posted by travelbug @ AF
Wow. So Kenneth said there are other arrangements regarding what will happen, but the info about Sharon was found on her forum. I thought TVB gave the role to Sharon, who told Kenneth this or something like that. Well I guess not…I guess Kenneth just happens to know everything when it comes to Bernice haha (yes. let me be..I can dream can’t I?) This aggravates me more… Kenneth gets to be a villian, he gets to die, he gets to be in his first grand production…and it was suppose to be w/ Bernice! It would’ve been perfect…why oh why?!
Video from Sharon’s blog (Praying Ceremony for Award Presentation 11/15):
They are very cute! Glad that I heard their interview right before seeing them appear together again! haha. they are such good friends. Sharon threatens to disown Kenneth if she finds out he didn’t vote for her. He said he did and when Sharon said that he’s getting an award tonight, Kenneth was like “No, you are.” Sounds a lot like the conversation Myolie mentioned in an article that she and Kenneth had in 2006…and what happened then? He got an award! I don’t think we’ll have such luck this year! 😛
Download videos of the Sales Presentation Entertainment News converage:
Aw… Kenneth an Sharon look so compatible. Kenneth said he’ll match whatever Sharon wears…does that mean they’re walking the carpet together? They’ve walked in together several times before, but never the red carpet…I wouldn’t mind, but really do wish it were BK for once. He’s walked w/ Kate, Fala, Sharon, on different occasions…how about BERNICE?!

You can find the Citywalk 2008 CNY Show that has Kenneth in it here. I haven’t seen it yet, but I believe Selena & Vivien Yeo were there as well! They all played games
Click the link:
This interview was really cute. Sharon was a guest host for the show and had previously invited her “family” onto the show including younger sister Rain Li, Older Sis Christine Ng, and Big Bro Joel Chan. So the host asked her who the tall handsome guy this time was and Sharon said that he isn’t her brother/sister. The host then asked if he’s her lover then, and she said no, that he was her good friend Kenneth.
They welcome him onto the show and the hosts pokes fun at him, saying that she heard that he doesn’t talk much, that he’s really introverted. And he replied that he is w/ a chuckle and also said he doesn’t know what to say (he’s so cute!)
The host asked Sharon if Kenneth’s really that shy and she said he is, but not with her (aw…). Kenneth was asked whether he has very few ‘female friends’ and he said Yes. (Wow, I always thought Kenneth had a lot of female friends, but turns out he has more guys friends. I guess Kenneth’s just one of those ppl with lots of friends, but only a few close friends..and the really close ones just happen to be guys. It just so happens that his female friends like Nancy, Myolie, and Selena talk more about him as opposed to the guys)
Haha, the host even mentioned that his voice is very… uh..sexy/deep …however you say it. And Sharon chimes in to say he sings very well.
They talk about how they met, and Sharon even said at first Kenneth didn’t really speak to her and she had to initiate convo during the filming of Dreams of Colours. (Kenneth said that they were not close when he “guest starred as Sharon’s bf in Survivor’s Law & Summer Heat etc….he later corrected himself saying that it wasn’t guest-starring since he was an extra back then – he’s so humble) Sharon said that Kenneth took care of her during DOC and though he didn’t teach her stuff, he gave her advice and they talked alot.
The host laughed at Kenneth for being “cool” for not talking to Sharon and he said he wasn’t that he just didn’t know what to say. Sharon went into saying that it’s hard to find friends in the industry, but Kenneth and her relationship will never change. They wish the best for each other and she would message him when he has a new series and comment on it. It’s funny how when Kenneth was saying that Sharon is one of the few ‘girl’ friends he has that he is actually brave enough to really talk to, the host asked him why he’s afraid to talk to girls. Sharon says Kenneth treats her as a boy and laughs that Kenneth’s too shy to talk to girls.
Kenneth keeps looking to Sharon for guidance and Sharon tells him to speak himself. Kenneth admits that they share secrets and Sharon says he knows she’d never tell anyone about his secrets. Sharon also feels that Kenneth is very dependable, but not doesn’t give her a brother feeling like Joel does. Yet, she doesn’t feel like he’s a girl, he’s just a very special person that she wants to tell things to …a listener…
Sharon says she would be truly happy if Kenneth became “big” and that if he ever got an award, she would cry. She says that she would be very happy for everyone she cared about (aw..that’s so sweet).
When asked whether they would ever like each other, Kenneth says he doesn’t know (haha. the typical awkward Kenneth answer). He also says she knows too much about him though.
The host asked whether Kenneth can cook, but he said he couldn’t. Sharon said it would be plus if a guy learned to cook for u. (Kenneth said he’d learn to cook for a girl he really liked) She also said that in DOC, thanks to the script for saying she doesn’t like Kenneth as much as he likes her, or else she would have fallen for him (haha. Sharon just knows how to make Kenneth awkward).
Sharon laughs that the show has become a dating show, and the host laughs saying that she was just trying to see how quiet Kenneth can keep. Sharon says that whenever you say things like this, Kenneth can’t even look at me…(haha…too cute).
They laugh at how Kenneth likes Donald Duck. His mom’s fav cartoon is also Donald Duck. Sharon would buy stuff for him when she sees them but feels like shes buying stuff for her nephews. His Mom bought him his first Donald Duck during a Japan trip in 1985 (wow that’s older than me!) and he’s liked it since then.
They say that Kenneth is very loyal/faithful and the host says that’s adding points. Sharon says she always knew that Kenneth was loyal, faithful, and filial…and she keeps selling him. Kenneth admits that he talks to Donald Duck (and the girls were like “He’s so cute…”) and that his Mom and him have bday parties for them.
haha. I think Sharon was beginning to be a little creeped out by the Bday parties and that his Mom treats it like her grandson (haha. Kenneth needs to get married and have a baby soon or else! haha. )
The host asked what type of girl Sharon thinks Kenneth likes and she was like, I’ve always though he likes girls w/ long hair, not too fat/thin, and kinda “cute”… (Sharon say that that was only her opinion that Kenneth should stop pouting and he replies that he wasn’t pouting, he was just thinking…)..not like ‘retarded’ cute…but like a cute face…. and absolutely has to be very filial like him!
The host further ask Sharon to take some time to think which TVB actress she thinks is most like Kenneth’s type (telling her to disregard Kenneth’s feelings)
Kenneth admits that Sharon is sorta right about his type, but that he’s not big on looks…that as long as she’s OK looking to him then it’s fine. He’s actually afraid of girls that are too pretty. He remembers he had two classmates w/ really pretty gfs (they were mixed – oh so Kenneth thinks mix girls are hott?) and they were very hard to get along with. So he has that impression of pretty girls. He’s more into personality and he likes girls that are more “simple” (innocent).
Sharon’s answer: the slimmed down Myolie Wu. (Sharon was so nice to him, I don’t think she really meant it because she follows up by selling “To Grow With Love” saying that he’s chasing after her in the series and must feel someting for her right now) – the host laughs that Sharon is being soft on him!
Kenneth’s reply: He’s afraid to say whether Myolie’s his type (They laugh that he’s afraid of fighting w/ someone..and he say’s that’s one point) Also, he’s had very few scenes w/ Myolie until TGWL and they’ve been very plain friends …and he’s doesn’t really understand her very well ( like they’re not really close close)…
Sharon tells the host to stop asking Kenneth and the host says that she’s not gonna ask anymore that her conclusion is: Myolie is “no” and Sharon is “don’t know.” The host also says that Kenneth is not bad to talk to …actually he’s very enjoyable to talk to.
Aw…that is such a funny interview. I’m surprised to learn that Kenneth and Myolie aren’t that close. I guess they are just “friends” not “very good friends” like Sharon and Kenneth where they can share secrets. Kenneth is too cute for words. Note, this interview was during the airing of TGWL so that’s like 2006? That was before Kenneth got his Most Improved Award and Sharon seemed to already know (I guess it was very hyped up)…and said she’d be very happy for him if he got ! I wonder if she cried cuz we know that Yoyo teared up when Kenneth got it! I was really expecting Sharon to give an honest answer, but then again, she wouldn’t sell Kenneth out like that (or else he wouldn’t trust her like he does)! Weirdly, Sharon does fit all his characteristics, except I do feel she’s a little bit too extroverted for him …he may like not “too-shy” girls, but Sharon’s a little bit of a party-girl (It’s so amazing how Kenneth can be friends w/ Timmy, Sharon, Angela, Toby, and Christine, who are all such crazy extroverted ppl!)
I’m glad they are such great friends! I’d love to see them in a series together again (playing best friends or a couple)! I can’t believe I’ve never heard this interview before!
The girls voted Kenneth & Kenny as the hottest. Kenny poked fun at how all the girls were staring dreamily as Kenneth walked out, saying that he looked so cool. (right click and click play)
This picture was found on Sharon’s blog. Omg, Kenneth was there too. The SCD 1 & 2 ppl + Ankie B. (model) & Christine’s husband. Oh wow. Kenneth is sitting next to Ankie (I think she’s really pretty btw. She’s with Bella too right?) Aw.. I never processed it that he’s friends with so many different ppl before I saw this picture (Kenneth has such a secretive life!) Is this where Timmy ‘supposedly’ announced his marriage to Janet Chow? (Since the news reported that Ankie toasted to that?) haha. Kenneth’s not wearing make up it seems &he’s drinking his favorite Ice Tea!

Sharon put up some pix on her personal blog, not her TVB blog, of Kenneth and the others at the Megabox promotion filming. Here are the pix. Aw…I Kenneth and Sharon do look very compatible physically…glad to know they’re such good friends…I really wanna see them in a series together again!
So I finally found out where the pix came from, well the one w/ Patrick in it that is. It’s an advertisement/gameshow. There are 5 epis. Kenneth is teamed w/ J.J. Jia and Sharon’s w/ the Mr. HK Chan Chi Kin.
Here are some I found on Youtube. Read the rest of this entry »
I just wandered upon Sharon’s site today and found these recent pix of ShaKen at an event together. I have now idea what this event is, appears to be some 20th Anniversary for TV or something. Hm… never heard about this even at all. Nothing about it on Wilson’s Blog yet? Is this in China or HK? Btw, haven’t seen them together in ages! They’re such good friends and look pretty compatible physically. Wish TVB would let them lead a series together; it’ll be fresh w/ both of them w/ more screen time together! Looks like they took pix together before the event as well from the clothes change. Has anyone notice how almost every year, well for at least 2 yrs anyways, Sharon gets to walk w/ Kenneth when they enter the stage at the Anniversary? (You hardly see them, but I noticed it lol. expect for last year of course when S4 walked w/ Liza Wang)
Here are the pix.
Host: Speaking of male artists, who have you all collaborated with the most?
Myolie: My fans counted this for me online, it is Kenneth Ma.
Sharon: I have hosted two shows with him in Hong Kong. [I believe the translation should be “two series”]
Selena: It’s always him during magazine photoshoots.
Sharon: He is very popular!
Host: Please tell us about the deepest impression you had on him?
Sharon: He is very obedient and filial.
Selena: He is very real, but there are times he pretends to be naughty.
Sharon: And he doesn’t smoke.
Myolie: Why don’t you marry him then?
Sharon: I like guys with a big tummy!
Comments: Aww… three of Kenneth’s good friends. I guess this was an interview done in Mainland? Way to go Kenneth! Hopefully he’ll get to spread his name all over China! haha. About the comment made by Sharon – they’ve so been in more series together than 2! Lemme see: Dreams of Colours, Summer Heat, Survivor’s Law…and was there anymore? lol. OH well, she probably totally forgot SH cuz it was such a small role. I’m surprised Myolie didn’t get to compliment Kenneth lol. Haha, yeah sharon why DOn’t you marry Kenneth. jkjk. It always makes me wonder why the girls have so many great things to say about Kenneth and none of them date him! I wonder which one of the three Kenneth’s closest with? What’s your guess?

The full translation of the entire interview w/ the three ladies. It seems that Kenneth fits almost all there requirements for an ideal bf…except for the tummy that Sharon wants haha!
Sharon Chan Man Chi was spotted yesterday meeting with a 6 feet tall man. After long-legged beauty Sharon finished her promotional event with Yoyo Mung Ka Wai, she met with this man in Causeway Bay.
It turns out that Sharon met up with Kenneth Ma Kwok Ming. Kenneth was very understated and wore a cap, obscuring his face. They lingered until 9pm before leaving together.
Since Kenneth had previous rumors with Margie Tsang Wah Sin, he kept his distance while walking next to Sharon. They would chat once in awhile. Sharon’s car was parked in the garage, at which point Kenneth waved to say goodbye. Then he headed in a different direction to go home.
Since the time was still early, Sharon headed to Tsim Tsa Tsui to meet her girlfriends for hot pot. Sharon did not return home until 1 AM.
When Sharon was contacted over the phone about her date with Kenneth, she said she is not afraid of rumors, “We are good friends. He just returned to Hong Kong after filming ‘Tai Chi.’ Since we haven’t seen each other for several months, we decided to meet up.” (How come it was only the 2 of them?) “We met in such a public place, that’s it no big deal even if we were spotted together. I knew Kenneth many years ago from filming ‘Dreams of Colors.’ He was my boyfriend in the series. We have been friends for many years.”
Did Sharon have any pursuers currently? “I am not dating anyone. Even if there were pursuers, I am focusing on my career right now.”
Comments: This is one of Kenneth’s very few rumors…. It was actually a one day rumor lol. I use to love ShaKen together… before my conversion to BK. But they really seem to be very good friends and do look compatible physically! How many series have they been in together? hmm… DOC, SL, SH, and…? There was something else that I just cannot recall!
Rain Li Choi Wah and Kenneth Ma Kwok Ming collaborated on 2 TVB series in the past, which helped them forge a close brother-sister relationship. In Rain’s heart, brother Kenneth is straight-forward and honest. But Kenneth revealed his humorous side in this interview.
Kenneth openly admitted that he gets along very well with Margie Tsang Wah Sin, whom he will be filming a new series with. [Other cast members include Roger Kwok Chun On and Sonija Kwok Sin Lei. Margie will play Roger’s elder sister in the series.]
R= Kenneth, you exude a very straight-forward personality.
K= Of course I’m not straight-forward, otherwise, how would I be able to meet girls? R= When we were filming series together, you were often very quiet.
K= Since we didn’t know each other well, it was difficult to talk. I can only speak my dialogue with you during filming!
R= But you’re a nice guy! When it was my birthday, you gave me a Hello Kitty watch.
K= Actually I am very talkative with my sports friends. Since you are so talkative, I became more open with you. Both you and Sharon Chan Man Chi are both very talkative, so it is easy for me to converse with you girls. If I were to be with a very quiet girl, I will have nothing to say.

Age and Gender Do Not Matter
R= Since entering the industry, you never attracted many rumors?
K= The paparazzi published once piece about Kate Tsui Tsi San and I. Also the press photographed Sharon Chan and I having dinner together.
R= It’s obvious these rumors are false. I also had dinner with you before. But the hottest rumor must be with Margie Tsang Wah Sin. What do you have to say about rumors with Margie?
K= I don’t have much to say. We just ate out together.
R= The press said you had dinner at a hotel together?
K= The tabloids will always embellish the story further. We only ate out twice together. One occasion was afternoon tea, which was a very busy time. But the press said we had a rendezvous. If it were really a rendezvous, why would we have picked such a busy time to meet? It would have been a quieter place instead. The second time, we had evening drinks at a hotel.
R= You have that much to talk about?
K= Margie is very talkative; we can chat about everything. I know a few girls who are very talkative as well.
R= Who else?
K= Helena Tam Siu Wan and Sharon Chan.
R= So are you still friends with Margie?
K= Yes, we have always been friends.
R= You once admitted that you don’t mind having a girlfriend older than you?
K= That’s right. If you like someone, then age and gender do not matter.
Emotional Attachment Will Increase Over Time
R= Do you have someone you are interested in right now?
K= Not right now. I like to get to know someone over a long period of time. It’s a matter of the right timing. It’s better to start off as friends and get to know each other better first. How is love at first sight possible? If this were the case, perhaps the sparks would wear off after a short time. She may appear to be very attractive at first, but once you get to know her better, you may want to slap her. If we were incompatible and I have such a busy schedule filming, her temper will gradually emerge.
R= How many times have you dated in the past?
R= Have you thought about when you will get married?
K= When I make enough money, I will get married. When I meet the right person, I will get married. Having the financial means is very important, as you will have children afterwards. It’s impossible to raise kids without good savings.
R= You’re a very traditional man.
K= I think the best time to get married would be at 35-36 years old.
R= You’re pretty close to that age already! Only 2 more years left?!
K= I’m looking for someone right now! Otherwise, by the time I have kids, I may be too old to play soccer (football) with my son!
Willing to Play Supporting Characters For Love of Acting
R= I remember that you love playing cameo roles. A director once told you to stop taking cameo/minor roles, otherwise it will affect your career. Has your position changed?
K= I still love cameo roles. I love acting because in real life, there are many things I’m afraid of trying. But in acting, you can do anything. For example, if you see a beautiful girl on the train, you can not ravish her. But in acting, I can do so!
That’s why I don’t like to play good characters in series. During the filming of “Dreams of Colors,” I asked the scriptwriter whether my character was truly so kind-hearted without any faults. His wholesomeness almost made him inhuman; it is very hard to act as a character without any flaws.
R= Do you consider yourself having good opportunities at TVB?
K= Yes, many senior actors waited for 10+ plus and they still do not have good opportunities.
R= Have you thought about becoming #1 Brother at TVB?
K= No. Right now, I’m purely enjoying acting. And how do you truly define #1 Brother? It’s difficult to determine.
R= Then are you interested in attaining the position of #1 Brother?
K= I’m lacking a defining character. I need to wait for a breakthrough role. It’s important for me to continue filming in the meantime.
R= Will you fight for the role that you want?
K= I don’t mind whether I’m the male lead character or not. Rather I care more about whether the role is fun to play. For example, in “Lush Fields Happy Times,” Andy Hui Chi On and I both chase after “Fat Tin” Myolie Wu Hang Yee. The series tries to change people’s attitudes, that you can still be fat and have a fulfilling life.
R= In real life, do you like fat girls?
K= Preferrably she is not too overweight. Being healthy is more important. By the way Rain, when you were in “Dream of Colors,” you were very beautiful as you were a little chubbier back then.
R= I prefer how I look now.
Epilogue: Not Interested in Awards Because of Non-Interference Attitude
Kenneth had 6 series aired in Hong Kong this year. In TVB’s 39th Anniversary, Kenneth is nominated in 3 categories for “Best Actor Award,” “Best Supporting Actor Award,” and “Most Improved Male Actor Award.” Since Kenneth just returned from China due to work, he was unaware that he was nominated for these awards.
Rain noted that Kenneth is simple and straight-forward in this sense; he never thought about drumming up support for himself to win awards. But Kenneth explained, “What should I do? Take off my pants and run two laps to garner support? In the entertainment industry, it is not up to you what you want. It is dependent on many factors.”
“I am not pessimistic, but rather mature minded. I’m not the handsome type. You think if I [win an award], I will be happy?”

COMMENTS: Nice to know that Kenneth and Rain are good friends. I know that on Rain’s blog she once posted a pic of her and Kenneth and noted “Brother” on it (cuz he was her bro in DOC). haha… Kenneth is so passive, he needs chatty girls to approach him for him to warm up! (that reminds me of what ppl say about Gallen Lo!)
