Pinky Cheung Reveals Details Behind Rape Nightmare in TVB Interview

Pinky Cheung Reveals Details Behind Rape Nightmare in TVB Interview

With stars like Vera Lui (呂麗瑤), Louisa Mak (麥明詩), and Sharon Chan (陳敏之) opening up about their past experiences with sexual harassment, more and more stars have found the courage to come forth with their own harrowing experiences. Pinky Cheung (張文慈), a rape survivor, is ready to face her dark past again, and bravely shared details about her traumatic experience in a televised interview for TVB’s Scoop <東張西望>.

“I was teenager, and I met a male coworker at my summer job,” said Pinky. “We went out to dinner. We were not boyfriend and girlfriend, and neither were we the only ones together at the time. I had a female friend with me. He spiked my drink, and when I woke up, I didn’t know what was going on. My ears and body were bleeding.”

Pinky didn’t know what to do. Asking why she didn’t call the police then and there, she said, “I didn’t call the police. I didn’t tell my parents. I thought I was screwed. I felt scared. I did talk about it with my friends, but what else can you do? The only thing I thought I could do at the time was to not see that man anymore.

“Many things would go through your mind,” said Pinky. “If I called the police, wouldn’t that make people laugh at me? Wouldn’t that make people know about it? I would feel ashamed, so I didn’t tell anyone about it. But in the end, the hardest thing for me to do was to face my family.”

In August, a tabloid magazine reported about Pinky’s sexual assault. The report contributed to the gossip of Pinky’s past, and even led to rumors about how Pinky used the incident as a way to promote herself.

Eyes turning red, Pinky admitted that she still cannot find the courage to speak out the words “drug rape” to this day. “To be honest, if you ask me to speak those two words, I’d feel disgusted,” she said. “I still can’t face it. I think I will use the words ‘sexual assault’ to describe it. It’ll make me feel better.”

Even though it has been nearly 30 years, Pinky still struggle to let it go. “I could only close myself to it more and more. It was to the point where it pushed me to depression.”

Asking how she would have handled the situation differently, Pinky immediately said, “I would call the police. At least that would stop him from harming others.”

What advice does Pinky have for fellow survivors? “Forget what’s behind you and work hard to continue forward. Run straight to the pole. You must love yourself.”

Pinky Cheung was a Teen Rape Victim

Pinky Cheung was a Teen Rape Victim

Pinky Cheung (張文慈) has had enough of her past getting dug up again by the media.

On August 4th, the former ATV actress posted a thousand-word statement on her official Facebook account, urging the media and its consumers to stop reporting about a sexual assault that she had experienced nearly 30 years ago.

“Ever since I joined TVB last year, a certain media outlet wouldn’t stop reminding everyone about this old story,” she wrote. “When I was photographed shopping with a friend, they mentioned it. It wasn’t just once, but constantly. It was even to the point where they used a screenshot of me crying in a TVB interview to report about the things that had happened decades ago. When others see the report, they would think that I was talking about the incident, but none of that ever happened. I never said a word.”

When Pinky was 17 years ago, her boyfriend at the time drugged and raped her. Though she was a victim of rape, there would be negative comments directed to her whenever that incident was brought up by the media.

The 45 year old said at the end of her statement that she plans on getting married in the future, and doesn’t want the horrifying incident to be consistently reported by the media. “I am now working really hard to walk every step, and I love my body! I don’t have any more wishes, as I do plan on getting married in the future. I just hope that, when my boyfriend and I get photographed in the future, those old stories won’t be reported again! I’ve already lost the first half of my life. Please write with your conscience, and discontinue such hurtful reporting!”

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.
