    Myolie Wu Breastfeeds in Front of Friends

    Since giving birth to her son Brendan in October, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) attended her first public event. The radiant first-time mother seemed to have returned to her pre-pregnancy weight already. However, Myolie clarified that she still needs to work on losing a few more pounds.

    Having just completed her post-pregnancy one-month confinement, the 38-year-old actress was quick to return to work. “I didn’t think it was going to be so quick either. I was just thinking about having the opportunity to see Sun Li (孫儷).”

    Known for being a sweet and caring husband, did Philip Lee (李乘德) insist that she take more time to rest? Myolie said, “He lets me decide. I’m afraid of being bored and breastfeeding is very exhausting. There is no time for sleeping. I’m giving my baby boy all of my fat and water content. He’s nearly 12 pounds!”

    Although she intends to return to work, will she be reducing her workload to be a more involved mother? Notorious for being a workaholic, Myolie said, “I can’t accept any jobs that require an extended amount of time. I have to breastfeed for half a year. I hope to be a working mom though, so I will work part-time.”

    Earlier, it was reported that she breastfeeds in front of her girlfriends in the Nonsense Club. Though the issue of breastfeeding in public remains controversial, Myolie shared, “Yes, I’m very open [about it]. It is convenient for me at home and I’m very close to my girlfriends. I was afraid of scaring them, because [my breasts] are so large now! I want to encourage them to breastfeed too.”

    Ruco Chan Wants to Keep Coupling Up with Nancy Wu

    Ruco Chan Wants to Keep Coupling Up with Nancy Wu

    The TVB crime drama The Unholy Alliance <同盟> is Hong Kong’s biggest show of 2017, and its final episode—which aired on September 13—was watched by 2.07 million viewers, achieving an average rating of 31.8 points across all viewership platforms. Lead star Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) said it is a “satisfying number”, adding that he would love to do a sequel or another installment of the show.

    Last month, the cast gathered together for a ratings celebratory banquet. Stars like Ruco Chan, Nancy Wu (胡杏兒), Joel Chan (陳山聰), Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), Samuel Kwok (郭峰), and Jimmy Au (歐瑞偉) were in attendance. The Unholy Alliance is Ruco’s second collaboration with Nancy, the first being last year’s A Fist Within Four Walls <城寨英雄>, the drama that also got them both TV King and TV Queen.

    Ruco said he won’t mind working with Nancy again. “It’s not boring!” he said. “A good partner is hard to come by. It’s like Adam Cheng (鄭少秋) and Liza Wang (汪明荃). They collaborated in so many things together yet no one finds them boring.”

    In regards to the rumor that he’s living in with girlfriend Phoebe Sin (單文柔), Ruco smiled and said, “She gave a great response. We live in the same kui [district], not gui [living together]. (Did Ruco teach her that answer?) No, I’m not that smart. (She said she’s never held your hand!) This question was answered before. Just refer back to our old answers. (She said she’s seen your mother.) Yes she has, and many of my friends, too. (Incorporating her into your household?) Not exactly, but maybe my maid.”

    Nancy Wu Wants More Screentime with Nina Paw

    In regards to a possible sequel or new installment, Nancy said she would love to have more scenes with Nina Paw (鮑起靜). Both actresses are hot in the running for this year’s TV Queen throne.

    “Nina Paw’s in the running this year, so I don’t want to think about it,” said Nancy when asked if she has the confidence to win TV Queen a second time. “It’s already a great thing to be nominated alongside her.”

    Elaine Yiu Plans for Marriage Next Year

    Earlier, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) revealed to the reporters that one of her close friends has a special announcement prepared. This has led to speculation that “Nonsense Club” member Elaine Yiu would be announcing her marriage to Cheng Tsz-bong (鄭子邦), but she quickly denied.

    “Myolie wasn’t talking about that!” Elaine said. “Also, I need to clarify that she was definitely not talking about me. Although [marriage] is a goal of mine, I really don’t have time for that this year. We’ll consider it next year. This can’t be forced. I don’t want to scare [Cheng Tsz-bong] off! Give us some space, and everything will come together.”

    “The Unholy Alliance” Comes to an End

    “The Unholy Alliance” Comes to an End

    The following article contains spoilers for TVB’s The Unholy Alliance, which ended on September 13, 2017.

    TVB drama The Unholy Alliance <同盟> ended its 28 episode run on Wednesday, September 13 to ratings success. The crime thriller finale starts with Ko Tsz-kit (Ruco Chan 陳展鵬) abducting his mother Ling Hung (Nina Paw 鮑起靜) and brother Kent (Joel Chan 陳山聰) to bring out the true side of Ling Hei (Mary Hon 韓馬利) and Anthony (Jazz Lam 林子善), both who are fighting to be the leader of The Alliance. Ling Hei forges Ling Hung’s signature in a power transfer contract that would make her the new leader, but Anthony threatens Ling Hei to transfer power over to himself instead. The two break into a fight, resulting in Ling Hei’s death.

    Anthony becomes the sole leader of The Alliance—but only briefly. Tsz-kit uncovers his ploy in time and plants Rainman’s poisonous weapon in the Alliance meeting room. Anthony breaks the seal, sending out a waft of poisonous gaps, which wipes out Anthony and the Alliance members. Ling Hung, upon realizing that Tsz-kit had a hand in killing his aunt and cousin, slaps him two hard slaps on the face.

    Soon after, Rainman sends assassins to kill Ling Hung. Her loyal bodyguard Mr. Yik (Jimmy Au 歐瑞偉), overwhelmed by the number of attackers, dies protecting Ling Hung, who gets captured.

    Tsz-kit meets the four powers behind Ling Hung’s capture, and exchanges himself for Ling Hung’s life, promising to be their new Rainman. Meanwhile, Kent storms into the church to save Ling Hung. “Rainman” Kam Tin (Elena Kong 江美儀) confronts them and makes her way to kill them, but receives a message that Rainman has been replaced. Kam Tin’s assassins kill her. To be the new Rainman, Tsz-kit ends all relations with his family.

    Tsz-kit spends the next two years tracking evidence to take down the four powers, and manages to put up all of their criminal evidence to the Internet. He comes across Yuen Ching-yan (Nancy Wu 胡定欣) in the streets, who angrily slaps him on the cheek. But their reunion is a happy one, and after two years apart, they can finally be together again.

    Benjamin Yuen and Nancy Wu Go Wakeboarding

    After a long and hard summer of work, these TVB artists are spending some days off to cool down.

    A Fist Within Four Wall <城寨英雄> stars and real-life buddies Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) and Nancy Wu (胡定欣) took some time off their schedules to hit the waters with some of their close friends. Benjamin shared a video of him wakeboarding as he tried to down a bottle of drinking water, but fell into the water before he could finish the bottle.

    “Is this considered freestyle performance?” wrote Benjamin on Instagram. “Establishing my hobbies and establishing my life. P.S. I’m actually a rookie, but I’ve managed to save the bottle!”

    Benjamin was shirtless in the video, wearing only his swim trunks. He’s still as fit as ever!

    Meanwhile, Nancy shared a picture of herself wakeboarding as well, writing, “Today I’ve finally worked up the courage to try something new…”

    Benjamin will be starring in the upcoming crime drama Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者2> while Nancy will be starring in Deep in the Realm of Conscience <宮心計2深宮計>.

    Nancy Wu Holds a Retro-Themed Birthday Party

    Nancy Wu Holds a Retro-Themed Birthday Party

    Nancy Wu (胡定欣), who turned 36 years old on September 9, celebrated her birthday in an intimate yet festive birthday party with close friends a few days ago. The retro-themed party was attended by members of Nancy’s “Nonsense Club”, as well as Joel Chan (陳山聰), Pal Sinn (單立文), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), Rosina Lam (林夏薇), Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠), and Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪).

    The birthday girl wore a satin purple dress and a vintage hat draped by a mesh net. The pregnant Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) wore a flowery gown, while Paisley Wu (胡蓓蔚) had on a satin top with a pair of statement earrings.

    Complementing the 60s to 70s theme of the birthday party, other attendees wore overalls and hippy dresses. Myolie expressed that she’s interested in holding a themed party for her own birthday, and maybe give out an award for best-dressed.

    Sharing a group photo on social media, Nancy Wu wrote, “I can deeply feel everyone’s sincerity. Many things were unexpected. Thank you all for dressing with great care. There’s only one word to describe it all: Awesome!”

    TVB’s “The Unholy Alliance” is a Disappointment

    TVB’s “The Unholy Alliance” is a Disappointment

    TVB’s The Unholy Alliance <同盟> is kind of disappointing. To be fair, the drama did have a lot of weight to hold on its shoulders—it’s not easy to live up to the hype of A Fist Within Four Walls <城寨英雄>, which was not only 2016’s Drama of the Year, but also the drama that got all four of its leads Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), and Grace Wong (王君馨) to snag some of the biggest trophies at the TVB Anniversary Awards.

    And that’s a lot of pressure to live up to.

    The Unholy Alliance, which features much of the same cast and crew that created Four Walls, is seen as a modern “sister version” of the 2016 period drama. Like Four Walls, The Unholy Alliance is comedic and packed with action. While Four Walls was inspired by kung fu comic books, The Unholy Alliance drew inspiration from Hong Kong and Hollywood-style action films.

    It was supposed to be a promising series. TV King and Queen Ruco Chan and Nancy Wu return as the star couple. Four Walls veterans KK Cheung (張國強), Jimmy Au (歐瑞偉), and Jazz Lam (林子善) are back to hold onto the show’s backbone. The Unholy Alliance is also Film Queen Nina Paw’s (鮑起靜) first television drama with TVB. A look into any episode in this drama and one can see that this drama wasn’t an easy project to do—there’s nonstop fighting and nonstop action. Nina Paw had to take shooting lessons for her role. Ruco Chan and Nancy Wu are now more fit than they ever were in Four Walls. Jimmy Au gets the nickname “Hong Kong 007.” Even TVB artists like Elaine Yiu (姚子羚) and Joel Chan (陳山聰) are being treated in a different light—who knew they could be our next action stars?

    The Unholy Alliance had the formula to be the year’s biggest show, and though it’s faring well in ratings, it isn’t exactly getting very popular. Critics aren’t really liking it, and netizens are even more disappointed by it.

    So what went wrong?

    According to critics, one of the show’s major failures is the story and script. Whenever Ko Tsz-kit (Ruco Chan) and Yuen Tsing-yan (Nancy Wu) get in a physical brawl, it usually turns into something pretty sexual. The characters throw sexual innuendos at each other so much viewers no longer find their relationship interesting. Crude jokes can be very funny, but if the same kind of jokes are being told over and over again, the novelty and shock value gets lost.

    The show’s dialogue isn’t very smart, and the story itself is mediocre at best.

    This show has talent. Nina Paw is playing the strongest character she has ever attempted on television, and Jimmy Au is once again proving netizens that he deserves to win TVB’s Best Supporting Actor.

    But you know it’s becoming a waste of talent and resources when the only thing viewers can remember from the show is how many times Elaine almost gets into a wardrobe malfunction whenever she’s fighting some bad guys.

    It’s an honest disappointment.
