Joyce Cheng discussing plans to appear in New Sitcom series


As well as releasing an album, Joyce Cheng will have the opportunity to act in an TVB series. It was reported that she had been secretly discussing plans to appear in one of TVB’s new sitcom series. She will have the chance to work with seniors such as Teresa Mo Sun Kwan, and Opera singer Ng Kwan Lai. Joyce will also have the chance to sing the theme song. It appears that TVB will be promoting her heavily this year, similar to Fa Dan status.

“Best Selling Secrets” will broadcast it’s final episode on August 7th. There were rumours that the series would be continued but this is not the case. The producer had recently been working on plans for a new sitcom series, but will keep actors such as Alvina Kong, Wong Cho Lam, Florence Kwok etc. The new sitcom will be unrelated to “Best Selling Secrets” and have different characters and an entirely different storyline.
Joyce had always wanted to act in a TV series. Chan Suk Fun who manages her work, carefully chose the role for her. The plans are in process and it will eventually be confirmed whether Joyce will be in the new sitcom series. Due to entering the music industry, Joyce will be one of the top choices to sing theme songs. It appears that Joyce’s entertainment career is finally being raised.

Joyce Cheng in Super Trio

Joyce Cheng, Timmy Hung, Ankie Belle and Tam Wing Liu were at TVB's studio to record Super Trio yesterday.
When Joyce was playing the "Stepping Legs" game, she was asked to jump on top of Tam Wing Liu's thigh. However Joyce seemed to fail no matter how many times she tried to go on top of Win Liu's thigh. She knelt down in front of Wing Liu, causing Eric Tsang to exempt her in that section.
Joyce Cheng told the reporters she can't jump high because she had a bad childhood experience. She stated that she was fat in the past. When she was young nobody was willing to push her when she was playing on the swings. She was also afraid of playing the see-saw because of her weight.
"Although I have slimmed down right now, I will still remember of my past. I didn't dare to jump on Tam Wing Liu just now because I am worried that I will hurt him."

Interested participating in dramas

Rumour says that Joyce will be participating in TVB's new sitcom. Joyce disclosed that her manager had discussed this issue with TVB and have already come out with an conclusion. However she is unwilling to disclose anymore.
(Are you really interested in acting?) "Yes of course, participating in dramas will let me learn new things, I am happy if I will have an chance."
(Have you thought of what roles you want?) "Nope, I am already happy if I was short-listed"

Timmy Hung's rumoured girlfriend, Ankie Belle


Even because Timmy Hung was a good friend of Eric Tsang and Chin Ka Lok, he was not spared by the hosts yesterday. When playing "Little Cream" the hosts gave him the double amount of cream to be splashed on his face. Eric Tsang and Chin Ka Lok also forced Timmy to disclose news of his father (Sammo Hung)'s girlfriend. Timmy Hung changed the topic by saying Ankie Belle is his rumoured girlfriend.

Timmy Hung - Joyce Cheng is Heavy
Timmy Hung needs to entail strenuous effort while carrying Joyce Cheng in the "Human Hoop" section. He was exhausted after that round. Timmy discloses that it was not hard when carrying Joyce. He was more in pain when Eric hit his private part's before the start of the game.

Joyce Cheng does not mind being compared with Jennifer Tse, will support her decision

Joyce Cheng states that she will support Jennifer Tse’s decision of joining the entertainment industry, even though her brother Nicholas Tse had constantly disapproved her from joining. She says “I agree with what Jennifer said, even if she doesn’t join the entertainment circle she is still well known and will still be followed by paparazzi’s. Although we talk to each other, she hasn’t asked me for any advice. To be honest I don’t think I have any right to give any advice, but I definitely think she can do it. She is a very tough girl.”

( But Nicholas has disapproved her joining?) “I do not want to comment as it’s their family business. But as a friend of Jennifer of course I will support her decision. “ (Aren’t you afraid of more competition in the industry?) “We are very different.” (Aren’t you worried about being compared?) “If they want to compare us then I be quite happy because she a beautiful girl and has a great figure. “ Joyce feel’s that Hong Kong’s entertainment industry is full of variety and will definitely have space for both of them.

Recently Joyce had been given the chance to sing the theme song for “Speech of Silence”. There were also rumours that she would be acting in a sitcom series. She states that Chan Suk Fun had discussed this with her but she is not clear of the full details. “Filming a series is a good learning experience. As an artiste it’s best to try out different things. Also it will be good for improving my Chinese. My Chinese has improved a lot, yesterday I didn’t need to use English pinyin for the Chinese lyrics. “

Joyce Cheng says she hasn't got a figure to show to shoot a pictorial book

Yesterday Joyce Cheng attended several events, including outdoor interviews and a book fair. Asked whether she would consider to write a book ? She said “I have thought about it, but writing in Chinese would be quite difficult, this is my long term plan. (What topic?) “I am quite chaotic, I may talk about everything. (Will you write about past experiences of living with your mother?) “Certainly, My mother had a very big influence on me.”

(Asked if she will mention her father?) “I probably will, I will see if I get any inspiration during the time.” Asked if she would release a Pictorial book? Joyce suddenly has a big reaction and says “I haven’t got much of a figure to show and quite I'm shy. These 2 years I have only gone swimming twice, afraid reporters will capture me. "

She was there also to present the best "Prince" and "Princess" award. Joyce disclosed she had a bad memory of the last time when she dressed up as Snow White, therefore this time she dare not dress as Snow White again.

Joyce told the media she was very happy to be invited again by HK Disneyland. Even she had an unhappy time a few years ago, she hasn't taken it to heart this time. Joyce reckoned this type of event is very beneficial to the children. It would encourage the children's interest to read. Asked if she would dress up as Snow White again, Joyce said "I don't think so. I still have the shadow here. I don't mind if people still want to laugh at me. But that is the past and I haven't done anything wrong." Reporter asked if her mother Lydia used to read story to her. She said very rarely, but her god mother always took her out shopping.

TVB new drama series " King Of Pool' was having a blessing ceremony yesterday. The whole cast Adam, Niki Chow, Joyce Tang, Derek kwok and Benz Hung were all there. Rumored couple Joyce and Derek were target for conversation as usual. When pictures were taken, Adam told everyone Joyce was untouchable.

Adam and daughter Joyce had been busy working for TVB series. They should have time to meet up for meals. Adam asked his assistant to keep an eye on Joyce's working schedule. Theses day they have been communicating through SMS. Adam said his daughter is very independent. Nowadays, young people don't like lecturing. In particular, a father who has always got the negative publicity would give the media a chance to create a lot of gossips. He doesn't take much notice of such gossips.


Although Joyce Tang and Derek Kwok have been teased by the cast, they took no notice of them. They still took pictures together side by side. Asked if their love story has surfaced, Joyce said she needs a lover to surface and she is not dating at the moment. Speaking of the attempted burglary at Joyce's house the other day, Joyce told reporters she heard a strange noise at her front door. She screamed her head off. That had frightened the hell out of the thief who then ran away. The door knob was damaged. Reporters asked if she had called Derek for help. Joyce said she had called the police. It was suggested she needs a man in the house. Joyce said her father had been staying there sometimes.

(LOL..see for yourself)

Netizens : Give Time and Chance

Fortunately,not all comments were bad. Other netizens felt that afterall its her first time acting,and have seen her efforts to work hard for her role in the drama. Joyce Cheng's acting should be more natural,time and chance must be given for her to improve. Its still too early now to come to a conclusion. As if the cute acting were deliberate,netizens says maybe its the demand of cuteness in her role.

(Picture Top,Sticking the tounge out scene)

In the second episode on tuesday night,there was a scene that Joyce Cheng sticked out her tounge after being scolded,her superior in the show said "Why did you give me that expression? Only a Twelve year old would do that as they think its cute.." It seems that the other casts dont mind her being cute and played along with her.

Viewers complains that Joyce Cheng's acting is not natural

Last week's broadcast of long 80 episodes series "The Gem of Life" has been grand, last week broadcasted two episodes at once in order to enhance the effects. Also Gigi Lai announcing her retirement from the entertainment circle, making her last tv series ever. The ratings were pretty high, last night's broadcast was 31 poins, peaking at 36 points, the success is not bad at all. But, on the next day ratings only peaked at 30 points, maximum of 28 points, seems like the trend is not flowing.

As for last week's finale of "The Four", TV ratings were 30 points on average, while the 2 episode finale last Friday recieved 35 points peaking, the results went as expected. Also last week first broadcast of "Off Pedder", last week only got 26 points, the results are only average. Week 2, Joyce Cheng comes out, the ratings went up to 28 points, which was the highest ratings of that week. But TVB recieved 6 complaints over the phone. They said that Joyce's performance is not natural, her acting was exaggerated. TVB's broadcast department expressed that this is Joyce's first series, everyone should give her a chance. TVB has great confidence towards Joyce's acting.

Preparations are continuing for this year's Tung Wah Charity Performance <姝℃▊婊挎澅鑿?, which will be held this Saturday. Under the watchful eye of their coach, veteran action star Sharon Yeung Pan Pan, a group of beauties including Angela Tong, Selena Li, Nancy Wu, Sire Ma, Vivi Lee and Grace Wong gathered together yesterday at the TVB studios to continue rehearsals for their "Diamond Fund-raising Beauties" act, where they will demonstrate the flexibility of their bodies.

With her drink-driving case still looming, Angela still seemed quite tired, but she was very absorbed into her rehearsals and still pulled off the splits with ease. She said that there are a lot of difficult moves in this routine, so she is forcing herself to focus on the task. She added that although she has a lot of things to worry about at the moment, she did not want to endanger the other ladies by not paying attention. Angela explained that she has not been sleeping very well due to the stress of her case and she wanted to go and visit the injured parties, but she did not know if she was allowed to see them and whether or not this could be seen as interference with the case. As a result, she has asked her assistant to pass on her well-wishes. Angela went on to say that she would like to clarify the situation, but she is not able to discuss the details of the case with the press at the moment.

Joyce Cheng and Dexter Yeung were also rehearsing for their song and dance routine, where they will be performing 12 classic songs. Joyce said that she has not yet decided if she will be singing live for this assignment because it has been scheduled for a later slot and she would prefer to put all her efforts into her dancing on the night. She revealed that her songs will mainly consist of classics by Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung.
Asked if she will be wearing any sexy outfits, Joyce smiled hat she did not want to frighten everyone off. Dexter was asked if he was worried about the steamy dances with Joyce, he smiled that he has known her since they were young, so there is no awkwardness in working together.

Gillian Chung's "Very Naive and Stupid" is 2008's Golden Quote

RTHK's "2008 Crisis People Voting" (「晨光第一線2008風雲人物大選」) ended yesterday and the results were released. Gillian Chung who was involved in the sex scandal earlier this year, announced that she was "very naive and stupid", this in which got 23% of the votes making her quote the "Wind & Cloud Golden Line" (風雲金句). As for the Happy Fruit Lydia Shum got 39.8% of the votes in the category of "Wind & Cloud Passed Away Person" (風雲故人). Joseph Lau, Yvonne Lui and Kam Bei were in second place for "Wind & Cloud Pair" (風雲組合). Edison Chen's sex scandal pictures also made a name as it placed in second for "Wind & Cloud Indecent Person" (風雲亵人). Yesterday RTHK posted the results for the voting, Happy Fruit Lydia Shum and Gillian Chung were at the top of the votes.

[*Note: Sorry everyone, I had trouble translating the titles of the voting categories. The "Wind & Cloud" is the literal translation of "fung wan" (風雲)]

Yesterday Hins Cheung and Joyce Cheng were guests at the release of the voting results. Hins felt that the "Golden Line" was a bit embarrassing, as his smile immediately faded. He explains: "Ah Gill is my friend, I didn't know about this Golden Quote voting. In my point of view, I feel that its already the end of the year, don't need to bring up these unhappy things to discuss again."

Edison Chen loses to Taiwan President Chen Shui-Bian

Edison Chen was involved in the sex scandal at the beginning of the year, in the end he made a public apology and announced that he will step away from the Hong Kong Entertainment Circle. It was when he went to the U.S did the situation died down, but turns out that he does not beat Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁)'s corruption. President Chen got 51.1% of the votes for "Wind & Cloud Indecent Person", while Edison recieved 23.8% of the votes.

Joyce: Postively facing the crisis

Joyce Cheng also feels that every person has been wrong before. The most important thing is to try the best, so therefore she did not go online to read about the sex scandal. She said: "They are already very miserable, we shouldn't be looking." When it was announced that Lydia Shum was the "Wind & Cloud Passed Away Person" and when the clips of Lydia's laugh was broadcast, Joyce could not hold in her tears. She thanked everyone for loving her mother, she said: "The whole world has been affected by the financial crisis, but hope that everyone will remember my mom's laughter and become happier to face the crisis."

Joyce Cheng puts Lydia's pillow inside a transparent cover
Sunday January 11, 2009 Hong Kong

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Joyce Cheng was in "My 2008" the other night, revealing how much she is missing her mother Lydia Shum who died last year. The audience were so touched by her. Joyce recalled the last few months before Lydia died when she was in the hospital. She bursted into tears many times when she was talking about it. Joyce disclosed everytime she visited Lydia in hospital, she held back tears because she didn't want Lydia to see her cry and she didn't want the reporters to see her in tears either. Mother and daughter would discuss her future plan. Lydia wanted Joyce to get married and have children, she also wanted to see Joyce having her first concert. Joyce knew it would be difficult to achieve Lydia's wishes, but nevertheless, they were happy in each others company.

Joyce disclosed that she has kept Lydia's pillow inside a tranparent cover. Everytime when she is missing her mom, she would take the pillow out to smell it. She was crying and said because she is so greedy, she has been taking out the pillow so many times that the smell of her mom's pillow has gone. Joyce went on to say she spent the 2007 Christmas with Lydia and she cooked the Christmas dinner for her. This year she was all on her own without her mother. Her father Adam and some other people had suggested she could spend Christmas with them, but Joyce had turned it down because she didn't want to spoil other people's fun.

Since Joyce entered the entertainment circle, she has been the target for some media's attack and criticism. She thinks there must be some misunderstanding. In fact she has low self-esteen often feels people look down upon her. She stated " I was 226.8 pounds in weight, yet after I have lost a lot of weight, I still feel I am not up to the standard. I have pig's nose, jug-eared, a long body and short legs but people still think I am a show off." When Joyce appeared in "Off Pedder" in the beginning, she faced a lot of bad press and she couldn't understand why? She questioned herself if she had made a wrong choice in her career? Joyce doesn't want to be rich and famous. She reckoned if her mom is still around, she would encourage her to work harder. She stressed "I will do my best to work hard, I hope mom would be pleased to know and she can rest in peace now."

After the "My 2008" programme, there has been a lot of response from the netizen. There were over 100 comments in only a few days. She gets many support from them, saying that they were in tears after they have watched the programme and they would support her too. Some asked people not to make judgment about Joyce, instead they should praise her. This demonstrates that the public is now less critical about her.

Joyce Cheng with pride, her body figure is OK

Joyce is full of confidence, she expressed that this is the first time working with Jennifer in a fashion show and is not afraid to be compared. She said: "Before there was some nonsense reports about us not getting along. The reality is totally opposite, I am not the girl who will go down the sexy girl route, so I'm not afraid to be compared. Actually when I see some models who have such long pretty legs, I feel a bit inferior! For this catwalk, I purposely lost some weight, each day I would make my own sandwich and bring it to work. I feel that my appearance is pretty ok." She expressed that later she will be a guest performer with her mentor Liu Jia Chang. In the next few days, she will rehearse, "I already called Liu Jia Chang's wife before and asked about his condition, I have full confidence towards my teacher."

Joyce Cheng gave out carnation flowers on 'Mother's Day"

Joyce Cheng and Myolie Wu attended an event yesterday in the Olympian City for "osim udream mama". A male on looker was rude to Joyce, but she ignored him. Joyce and Myolie were playing a game of who is a good mother and Myolie won the game.

The activity also incorporated with the "Make-A-Wish Foundation" in which a mother was invited to share her grieve and show pictures of her deceased son's work of art.

Reporters asked Joyce after the event about her being insulted by a man. Joyce said "Scared? I didn't hear it and I am not afraid. I am used to it. Everyone has a right to express oneself. I won't be unhappy about it. My job is to sing and if he doesn't like it, he doesn't have to listen to it. Some elders once told me that in this world, it is impossible to please everyone. I just need to do my best and I won't get affected by his remark."

Lydia Shum's Heritage Museum will be opened to the public on 22nd July. Joyce will be donating some of her mother's belongings. She had spent a lot of time and thought into the speech which she will deliver on the day of the opening ceremony. Since she joined the entertainment circle, she has taken part in TV series, singing as well as hosting TV program.

Joyce Cheng's new song is a self-encouragement

Last night, Joyce Cheng was filming for the MV of her new song (吃苦的力量). In front of the camera she was playing with a doll while shooting, the scene was very warm. She expressed that she's currently rushing to film the MV so that she can be able to share it with the SiChuan victims on May 12th for the first year memorial day.

Once been looked down on that she can't do it

Joyce performed the song with much feeling, especially earlier when she was filming TVB sitcom "Off Pedder" she experienced many difficulties. First it was because her Chinese wasn't good and then the effort she put into her acting did not pay off, therefore people in the outside world started looking down on her that she can't do it, from the beginning she is just bad, has Joyce thought about why she's doing this then? Chan Suk Fan and her son encourages her to just do her best on her own part. Mrs. Chan gave her the song (吃苦的力量) and showed her that she is better off than the victims in SiChuan.

Will not give up on singing

Asked when she's releasing her album? Joyce said she doesn't know, in the near future she will focus on filming series, but she will definitely not give up on singing. If she has an opportunity she wants to go visit SiChuan and perform her new song for the victims. Mentor Liu Jia Chang heard it yet? She said not yet, but many people had heard it and is very surprised. Her singing has matured.

When Joyce learned that Liza Wang and Law Ka Ying got married, she excitedly said that she's very happy for them and she couldn't believe it. She hopes that when Liza comes back, she will ask her how Law Ka Ying purposed to her, hope that they recorded the proposal and can share it with us all. Joyce felt the the two were very sweet.

Joyce Cheng in tears at Lydia Shum's exhibition

Yesterday Joyce Cheng attended Lydia Shum's "Happy Fruit Exhibition" along with Deborah Lai, Connie Chan, Nat Chan and Jacky Cheung. At the opening ceremony, "Lydia's Performing Arts Collection" was used to start the donation ceremony. Many guests attended to share the event and spoke about Lydia's life. When Joyce went on stage to make her speech, clips of her mother was broadcasting behind her, when Joyce saw those images she began tearing up. Afterwards, Joyce expressed that this exhibition went through a year of preparations, she was at the event and saw the clothes that her mother once wore, she felt very emotional. She said: "I was holding onto my mother's belongings and could not help but cry. (Did you invite your dad?) Yes, but he currently in Mainland filming." Also, today is Lydia's day for Chinese offerings. Joyce expressed that she would go Xinyi Fukuyama to honor her mother.

In Taiwan where Adam Cheng is currently filming for a new Taiwanese drama, he was asked about Lydia's exhibition. He expressed: "Back in the day when my mother passed away, I also had to film and was not able to rush back for her funeral. Is this really the time to compare the regretfulness?" He expressed that having entered the industry for so long, he already understands that many times he will have to do some sacrifices for work and has no choice but to give it up. This is inevitable to an artist.

She explained wearing a wedding dress is because she feels artistes signing contracts is just like getting married, it's an uneasy decision. Although Chan Sho Feng has always helped her at work, but she said she doesn't want to bother her forever, so two years ago she approached to the company and finally signed contract yesterday. She said happily: "Acting is my hobby, but singing is my life. I sing all the time, singing brings me happiness."

Asked whether father Adam Cheng gives her any opinion? Joyce said he doesn't know she signed management and record companies, and didn't ask him any opinion the whole time. She said seriously: "I don't know why people always relate things to my dad? When I was 8-months-old, mom and he were already separated, why have to give dad and daughter this much pressure? Always ask whether we see each other, talk, and give me opinion? Fathers are most happy to see daughters grow up, they're assured to let daughters to make decisions and learn."

Isn't afraid Adam would be unhappy to know daughter signed contracts with companies from newspaper? Joyce said: "Don't be silly, I would tell him later of course." Joyce expressed when she gets married in the future, she would definitely tell her father, just doesn't know why everyone cares about them a lot. Reporters said because her last name is "Cheng," Joyce said: "Thank you, I know it, too."
