Priscilla Wong in Talks to Play Edwin Siu’s Daughter in “A General, a Scholar, and a Eunuch” Sequel

TVB is considering a sequel for their latest comedy drama A General, a Scholar, and a Eunuch <超時空男臣>, which has been seeing a solid increase in ratings since its debut on July 17.

The time-traveling comedy stars Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Raymond Cho (曹永廉), and Matthew Ho (何廣沛) as the titular characters, three historical men from the Ming dynasty who time travels to present-day Hong Kong. The first week of episodes drew in an average rating of 24.5 points, followed by 25.8 points on the second week. On the third week of broadcast, A General scored a solid 26.8 points, drawing in an average of 1.73 million viewers.

With a solid audience base, TVB has expressed interest in producing a sequel for the show, which will continue the story of the general, the scholar, and the eunuch traveling back to their homeland and time. It is reported that TVB is trying to recruit Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) to play a cyborg of the future, who travels back in time with them.

Producer Marco Law (羅永賢) said, “It’s in serious consideration. The idea is that the three main characters will travel back to the Ming Dynasty from the present day, and will have to readjust back to their old life again. They may also bring Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) and Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗) with them, and they’re going to have to learn about their new life. There’s a lot of room for the imagination!”

The producer added that he plans on creating a new character for the show, a cyborg from the year 2030, who follows the main characters back to Ming China. The producer plans to cast Priscilla Wong in the role.

“If all of this works out, they won’t be playing a couple,” said the producer when asked about Edwin and Priscilla’s relationship line for the sequel. “I may write her as Edwin’s daughter or Raymond’s daughter.”

Reporters approached Priscilla for confirmation, who said she hasn’t received any information from TVB about her new casting. “That is hilarious. Is this true? If it is then it’s going to be so much fun! I really enjoy the show, and I’ve heard that the cast had a blast filming it.”

Mentioning that her boyfriend, Edwin, doesn’t want her to have any intimate scenes with Raymond, Priscilla said, “Haha! I don’t know if that’s true but I would love to play a couple with Raymond!”

Asking Edwin if he has heard about the sequel, he said, “I’m excited! I have heard about it from Marco. Hopefully he’ll put me back on the show!”

Priscilla Wong Denies Wedding Rumors: “Didn’t Know We Were Planning”

Priscilla Wong Denies Wedding Rumors: “Didn’t Know We Were Planning”



August wedding rumors between Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) have been going on for a while. In March, gossip mags reported that Edwin and Priscilla had plans to go on a vacation in August to register their marriage out of town. As Priscilla had just completed a variety show in Japan, and Edwin would finish the filming of his drama in late August, the timing seemed perfect. Reportedly, Priscilla and Edwin would go on a long vacation next year after their wedding reception, to spend time traveling and starting their family.

They have since denied the claims, of course. They explained that both of them were invited to do a feature for Carol Cheng’s (鄭裕玲) variety show DoDo Goes Shopping Again <Do姐再去Shopping>, in August, so a wedding would not be possible.

August wedding rumors started circulating again this week, but Priscilla was quick to deny the claims. She said, “I didn’t know about all these plans until I read the magazines. Thank you for your concerns! Both of us are very laid-back people, so having that many plans don’t really suit our lifestyle. Thank you to those who care about this more than us.”

Grace Wong’s Husband Upset by Kissing Scene

Grace Wong’s Husband Upset by Kissing Scene



At a promotional event for A General, A Scholar, and an Eunuch <超時空男臣>, Grace Wong (王君馨), revealed her husband Daniel‘s shocking reaction when he watched her kiss scene with Raymond Cho (曹永廉).

Unable to contain her laughter, Grace said her husband started cursing when he saw the kissing scene. Upon hearing this, Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) jumped in, “Of course, if my other half has to kiss Raymond, I would be swearing too. Pretty sure it’ll be multiple swear words. He [Grace’s husband] is already very conservative and very polite. Your husband has good manners.”

When asked what he would do if his girlfriend Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) were to kiss his good friend Raymond in a drama, Edwin laughed, “I would tell her to reject the series! I wouldn’t be able to take it, I just can’t do it. I don’t know how many times she’ll have to rinse her mouth before I can kiss her. I would die.”

Not surprised at both Daniel and Edwin’s reactions, Raymond revealed that his wife has not watched the show yet, but perhaps she would be equally as angry. Siding with Edwin, Raymond said he would turn down kiss scenes with Priscilla in the future for the sake of their friendship.

After a week of broadcast, A General, A Scholar, and an Eunuch has been performing fairly well, averaging 24.5 viewership points so far. Even TVB Chairman, Charles Chan (陳國強), complimented the series. Hoping to boost ratings, Edwin jokingly suggested that Grace should kiss Raymond again in celebration if the ratings keep increasing.

Priscilla Wong a Thrifty Spender Despite Father’s Wealth

Priscilla Wong a Thrifty Spender Despite Father’s Wealth



From her high-profile move to TVB in 2012 to her relationship with Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Priscilla Wong (黃翠如) never seems to stay out of the headlines. When Priscilla’s father became an overnight billionaire when his construction company got publicly listed last year, the Two Steps from Heaven <幕後玩家> star shot to headlines again, earning the name “billionaire heiress”.

But Priscilla herself hasn’t been very loyal to her new nickname. Rather than moving to a much bigger estate, Priscilla and her family of seven chose to stay in their comfortable, yet humble house in Ma On Shan. The Wong family are also thrifty spenders, perhaps influenced by their low-income upbringing. Paparazzi once caught Priscilla purchasing a standard scarf for about only HK$80 in Tsim Sha Tsui, and noticed her tendency to wear the same sponsored jacket for at least two days in a row. Priscilla also shares clothes with her older sister and three younger sisters, all saving money on their wardrobe.

Priscilla is also a water saver, having admitted in the past that doesn’t frequently wash her hair. The longest she’s had between washes was seven days. “It trains your hair to not be so greasy,” she said. She’s saving money on shampoo, too!

Even her boyfriend, Edwin, is getting affected by her thriftiness, and learning to become a saver. There’s a good future ahead for the both of them.

TVB Time-Traveling Drama “A General, a Scholar, and an Eunuch” Airs on July 17

TVB Time-Traveling Drama “A General, a Scholar, and an Eunuch” Airs on July 17



TVB new comedy series, A General, a Scholar, and an Eunuch <超時空男臣> aired on July 17. Starring Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Raymond Cho (曹永廉), Matthew Ho (何廣沛), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Grace Wong (王君馨), and Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗),  the drama was inspired by TVB classic, The King of Yesterday and Tomorrow <九五至尊>. The storyline follows Edwin, Raymond, and Matthew as they travel through time from the Ming Dynasty to the present in search of the missing consort, portrayed by Grace.

Grace portrays two characters in the drama. In the Ming dynasty, she is a consort. In the present time, she portrays a smug actress who resembles the consort.

Edwin, Raymond and Matthew are given shelter by Kristal, who is the owner of a Chinese restaurant. Rebecca portrays Kristal’s bratty little sister. She earns the affection of Matthew, who portrays a eunuch.

On whether she is envious of Matthew’s youthful looks, Rebecca said, “No. Maybe because he often portrays roles as a little brother, so people think he looks young. Actually, his thoughts and mindset are quite mature and manly. He is especially serious about work and will do his homework beforehand. Because of this, his portrayal of a eunuch is very natural.”

When together, the dynamic duo of Edwin and Raymond naturally trigger many hysterical moments. Adding in Matthew, the trio’s chemistry is quite refreshing. The drama’s producer, Marco Law (羅永賢), said, “Edwin and Raymond have the same sense of humor and are rowdy! Although Matthew’s experience with comedies is little, adding him enhances their chemistry.”

While Kristal and Edwin have partnered many times, it is their first time collaborating in a comedy drama. Kristal shared, “Before, I have only filmed serious dramas with Edwin. I also filmed Destination Nowhere <迷> before this, which had a very serious storyline. Filming a comedy now, it is a good break for me mentally and physically!”

A Glimpse into TVB’s “Deep in the Realm of Conscience”

A Glimpse into TVB’s “Deep in the Realm of Conscience”



TVB is going to take the audiences back to the Tang Dynasty again, nearly ten years after the original series. Deep in the Realm of Conscience <宮心計深宮計>, the franchise sequel to 2009’s Beyond the Realm of Conscience <宮心計>, will be hitting TV screens this year, in celebration of TVB’s 50th anniversary.

Co-produced by China’s Tencent Penguin Picture, Deep is set during the reign of Li Longji, or Emperor Xuanzong, during the early 700’s of Tang China. Starring Steven Ma (馬浚偉) as the emperor, the series revolves around the women in his life, all with their own motives to achieve power in court.

The drama first begins with the conflict between Empress Dowager Wei (portrayed by Michelle Yim 米雪) and Li Longji, before he became Emperor Xuanzong. Along with his aunt Princess Taiping (portrayed by Alice Chan 陳煒), Xuanzong succeeds in a coup that dethrones Empress Wei. After becoming emperor, Xuanzong experiences through political reforms, and tries to keep his throne safe from his aunt Taiping, whom he believes to be plotting a coup of her own.

Meanwhile, his empress consort Wong Chun (portrayed by Nancy Wu 胡定欣) comes across an old lover Yam Sam-syu (portrayed by Kenneth Ma 馬國明), the emperor’s closest ally and general of the militant guards. Along with Ho Lei (portrayed by Edwin Siu 蕭正楠), a royal guard, the duo work together keep the harem safe from danger. Sam-syu becomes acquainted with Cheng Sun-hei (portrayed by Chrissie Chau 周秀娜), who goes on to become one of the emperor’s consorts.

During one chance encounter, Ho Lei meets the maid servant Yuen Yuet (portrayed by Annie Liu 劉心悠), and falls in love with her. Yuen Yuet serves the Imperial Household Bureau, headed by the wise Lady Cheung (portrayed by Susan Tse 謝雪心). The bureau is split into four offices that manage inner palace affairs—jewelry proceedings by Lady Tsui (portrayed by Candy Lo 羅霖),  furnishing proceedings by Lady Nam-kung (portrayed by Akina Hong 康華), embroidery proceedings by Lady Luk (portrayed by Angie Cheong 張慧儀), and meal proceedings by Lady Wong (portrayed by Pinky Cheung 張文慈). Sam-syu’s love interest Kam Yeuk-chin (portrayed by Jacqueline Wong 黃心穎) serves one of the offices as a maidservant.

Deep is currently shooting in Hengdian World Studios. It is one of TVB’s seven anniversary dramas to celebrate the station’s 50th anniversary, and is slated to premiere in the last quarter of 2017.

Kenneth Ma and Jacqueline Wong’s Bath Scenes Aren’t With Each Other

Kenneth Ma and Jacqueline Wong’s Bath Scenes Aren’t With Each Other



The following article contains some spoilers for Deep in the Realm of Conscience.

The cast of TVB’s psychological crime drama My Dearly Sinful Mind <心理追兇Mind Hunter> went to Ma On Shan Plaza to promote their series, which is currently airing. The dramas stars Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Mat Yeung (楊明), Grace Wong (王君馨), and Ngo Ka-nin (敖嘉年).

Since the drama’s premiere two weeks ago, viewership ratings hovered in the low 20’s range, indicating an average performance. Kenneth said he doesn’t consider ratings to be the most important, and is instead more interested in reviews and word-of-mouth. He commented that it isn’t a surprise that ratings are no longer as high as they used to be, as more and more viewers are using other methods to watch content.

A few days ago, Kenneth was spotted by paparazzi on a second date with his Deep in the Realm of Conscience <宮心計深宮計> costar Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎), who he is rumored to be dating. Asking if they are developing well as a couple, Kenneth said he hasn’t had the time to go out with Jacqueline more due to their busy schedules.

“We haven’t had the time to meet a third time, but I will let you know if anything develops. We were just watching a movie. I’d go on movie dates with my friends too.” (So how is your relationship with Jacqueline now?) “We are getting to know each other.”

Annie Liu Jacqueline WongNonetheless, the actor did not forget to comment on Jacqueline’s Deep bath scene with Annie Liu (劉心悠), which was published in the news a few days ago. “I wasn’t there when they shot the scene!” said Kenneth. “Of course they’re very pretty. All our actresses are beautiful women. Even the palace maids!”

Kenneth wasn’t at the scene, but he’s heard that Jacqueline and Annie had filmed the scene in comfortable conditions. “I know the bath water was warm. Filming in water at night can be very good, but the studio has provided warm water for them. Annie did say that the company is treating them very well.”

Asking if Kenneth had a similar scene on the show like Jacqueline and Annie, he said, “Actually, Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) and I also had a shower scene! But it wasn’t as beautiful as their’s.” Commenting that their scene sounded very “HeHe” (gay), Kenneth said, “I know! But you won’t get that feel when you watch it, because Edwin had some really handsome camera shots in that scene, and it’s about Annie noticing him and falling for him.”
