The Juno Mak Chun Lung starred REVENGE A LOVE STORY (FUK SAU JEH JI SEI) was the only Hong Kong film to compete in the 15th Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival, at which he won the Best Actor award. Juno said that the ceremony took place in Korean and he did not wear any glasses, so he could not see the screen clearly. When the event announced Best Actor, he was not certain whether he won; after director Wong Ching Po and lead actress Sora Aoi reminded him, he was certain.
When Juno accepted the award and gave his speech in Putonghua, the event did not have any Putonghua translator. He could only give the speech again in English. Juno after winning his first film award went to a barbecue shop to celebrate. Juno drank soft drink instead of alcohol to thank everyone for their congratulations.

Earlier she revealed that she and her boyfriend were in a cooling period. She continued to avoid the subject. "No! I didn't see anyone. (Have you broken up?)
I didn't see anyone. I have to finish the movie first, he would understand."

Ron Ng was shooting a gun fight scene for TVB new series ATF Terrorism at a timber recycling factory. Since Ron Ng was spotted driving rumored girlfriend Viann Zhang home, their relationship already became obvious, even Ron didn't resist from responding to Viann related questions.
Ron expressed when the series officially started shooting, the blessing ceremony wasn't held yet, so he often injured himself. "I carelessly pulled the ligaments on my left leg, fortunately it was not too serious. If I were to undergo surgery, then I need to take 3 months off and that will certainly affect the shooting progress, so I plan to wait until the ligament breaks completely before I go in for surgery. Another time, I injured my eyeball." Asked if rumored girlfriend Viann called to comfort him? Ron said: "Yes! Everyone did, they know from the news." As for the bad terms rumor with Ruco Chan, Ron said without any more air: "The screen time is just about the same, [shooting is] very difficult."

After the relationship crisis with Mavis Pan, a new rumored girlfriend breaks out again for Raymond Lam. It was reported that the next day after his grandmother's funeral, he went to a nightclub in Lan Kwai Fong and got familiar with 'blueberry' Kibby Lau. He was dancing face to face with her, holding her hand and hugging her. However, Raymond firmly denied doing anything intimate with Kibby and stressed that it was just the camera angle. He then stuttered saying he's not familiar with Kibby.
Yesterday afternoon, Raymond held the autograph session to his new album LF. The event started 30 minutes later than the scheduled time, Raymond denied being late. He said he arrived at the shopping mall on time at 3pm. However, there was a road block outside causing a traffic jam, so he was only able to enter the mall after 10 minutes.
Asked about the reports with him and Kibby? He said in fact there is nothing to explain, don't let the words be intimidating. Raymond said that afternoon at 3pm, he and his colleagues had a meeting on his concert and the new album, but because the album was already completed, he received a phone call later saying that everyone will be doing a small celebration for all their hard work in Lan Kwai Fong. He just went and had a few drinks. That day it was Saturday, there were many TVB artists around, so he doesn't understand why only his photo was published.
As for being photographed dancing, hugging and holding Kibby's hand? He strongly emphasized that it was just a matter of the camera angles, he just chatted with Kibby. He reaffirmed that he was just there for a short while, nothing special and very normal. As this is his first time going to that place, he couldn't believe he was that lucky to get photographed. He joked that people rarely see him going out, so thought it was a big deal. If he goes more, then it be nothing.
It was said he kissed Kibby on the cheek? Raymond said he didn't and that everyone shouldn't make a fuss out of nothing. Will he meet Kibby again? He shouted with a smile, that's crazy, and then stuttered: "We aren't that familiar!" When asked why he had such a good chat with her if he didn't know her well? His face turned black and asked back: "How do you know I had a good chat? Just greetings. (Who initiated the greeting?) It just so happened we met. I have no other response, don't try to provoke more [questions]!" When speaking of Mavis Pan complaining about how his family was very fussy to her during a magazine interview? Raymond said he will not respond, he is currently focused on work.

The film NIGHTFALL (DAI JUI BO) yesterday held a production ceremony. Actors Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Simon Yam Tat Wa, Michael Wong Man Tak, Janice Man Wing Shan, Kay Tse On Kay and director Roy Chow Hin Yeung attended. Cheung Ka Fai wore a medical mask due to his flu while Yam Tat Wa recorded the production video with his camera.
Cheung Ka Fai in the film played a character who was out for vengeance after his prison release. To perform he even dropped to 120 pounds. He said that losing weight and training truly were very inhuman, now the director would first shoot his chase with Brother Wa and the naked prison fight scenes. He was worried that he would not be able to handle them physically because earlier he could not even move furniture at home. He was afraid that he was so light that he would be blown away.
However, Ka Fai said that Janice Man's role had the most potential in the film. Originally in the film she was his girlfriend in the film, but later he realized that actually she was his daughter. Janice Man in order to play this character began preparing two and a half months before. First she lost five pounds in hopes of the down and depressed look. At the same time she had to learn to play the piano.
Yam Tat Wa also had to make a sacrifice. He spent four hours to bleach his facial hair. This time he played a neurotic inspector. Brother Wa and Tse On Kay played a couple in the film and had intimate scenes. Yam Tat Wa would also work with Gianna Jun Ji-Hyun on a new film. They shot a roof scene in over 30 degree Celsius heat. She still stood next to the camera when she was not in scene to assist with his acting.

LOVE IN SPACE (CHUEN KAU YIT LUEN) yesterday released the Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Rene Liu (Lau Yeuk Ying) in a space station photo and unveiled the story behind the most difficult kiss scene. Lau Yeuk Ying said that the biggest challenge this time was the wire work, completely relying on limbs and expressions in weightlessness. It was an enormous challenge to her performance.
Lau Yeuk Ying said, "After the first day of wire work, when I came down and heard the director said once more I wanted to cry. It wasn't because I had pressure inside and didn't want to, I just felt like my body really couldn't take it." Kwok Fu Sing revealed, "I fell in love at first sight with the astronaut scene in LOVE IN SPACE. This was a very lucky character, right after reading the script I was looking forward to the production starting sooner. However it was actually shot, I was still a little frightened. The kiss was different from on earth. In space we floated. When we kissed it was even more romantic, but as we worked, when we kissed we didn't know where we floated to! This romantic floating in space kiss scene was hot on wires for six hours. Finally we captured the most touching shot, but this was also the most difficult kiss in my career."

The Ch8 mid-year blockbuster drama Devotion is a milestone of sorts for MediaCorp artiste Zhou Ying.
In the show, Zhou Ying takes part in her first bedroom scene opposite veteran actor Chen Han Wei. She also plays her first baddie role.
Zhou Ying stars as Yuan Fang, the eldest of Ah Di's (played by Zoe Tay) adopted children, who strongly believed that Ah Di was the one who sent her father to jail.
To take revenge on Ah Di, Yuan Fang seduced Ah Di's first love Huang Da Ke, who is played by Chen Han Wei.
The actress proclaimed "it (the bedroom scene) would be a turning point" in her acting career. Zhou Ying was initially worried about the scene but became relieved, after knowing that she would be acting opposite experienced actor Chen Hanwei.
Taiwanese idols’ prices go up once they go overseas. Rumors say that Joe Chen Qiao-En and Ady An pocket $170,000 and $180,000 RMB per episode (~$800,000 TWD). Therefore, although SETTV’s upcoming drama, “小襄的美麗人生” (Xiao Xiang’s Beautiful Life), was originally considering one of the two stars as its lead, they decided to have Janine Chang take the role in the end.
From the same production crew as “Love You”, the drama has already stirred up a lot of attention on the web. The network’s executive VP Su Li-Mei stated that Ariel Lin was her ideal Xiao Xiang, which led to a war of words between Ariel and Joe fans. Nonetheless, it will be Janine and Peter Ho to star in the new drama.
Drama production director Liu Si-Ming denied rumors of having contacted Ariel and Joe previously, “It was only an online discussion, and no contact was made. After the script was done, we felt that Janine suited the role better. Her schedule is also accomadating and we have no issues with her pay.” Liu Si-Ming pointed out that the production cost for filming dramas in Taiwan is much different than in the mainland. Thus, the actors/actresses’ asking price would be different. However, Liu Si-Ming does not feel that it’s wrong for actors/actresses to be asking for high prices, “This is a free market. The more expensive the actor’s pay is, it means the bigger the market is. We should work even harder to push the industry forward.”
The newly single singer is rumoured to be dating a Taiwanese host
Are they just friends or more than that?
After his break up with model girlfriend Lillian Chen in March, JJ Lin, 30, has reportedly taken a liking to one of Taiwan's most beautiful host Weng Tzymann, and they have been seeing each another secretly for the past three months.
On July 3, the pair was photographed leaving a KTV together, but in response to this, both emphasised that they are just friends and that they were not alone that evening.
JJ and Tzymann were believed to have met at the 2010 Most Searched Award when they were invited to be the presenters for the ceremony.
The pair reportedly hit off and had exchanged contact numbers then.
Ever since JJ broke up with Lilian in March, the two began hanging out more often, and in April, they were seen going to the movies together in Taipei.
However, both denied the allegations and emphasised that they are just friends.
Many speculated that Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin's health was deteriorating when she suddenly announced that she would stop acting in dramas.
Yesterday, Ariel, who suffered from a pituitary sella cyst two years ago, said that she would be reducing her future workload and had no plans of releasing another record.
While some speculate that the actress may be sick again, others questioned if she had made the decision in the name of love.
Ariel clarified that her ailment is untreatable and may recur even after surgery. Heeding her mother's advice, Ariel decided that her family is more important.
"I still love to act, but my health condition is not as good as it used to be. I think I should work within my health limit and set aside some time for people who are important to me," Ariel said.
When Ariel was filming her new drama series I May Not Love You in April, the actress had frequently fallen ill with tonsil inflammation because of the hot weather and her slow metabolism rate.
"It's tough to be the female lead for a drama series. It's like going through military boot camp, where [one's heart and soul] cannot have proper balance," the actress described.
Ariel's boyfriend Cheng Jia Yao had been visiting her on the set constantly.
When asked if she was departing showbiz because of love, Ariel laughed, "I merely wanted him to understand my job. After all, he may be my family member in future."
However, the actress wished for privacy when it came to marriage.
"I've always lived up to everyone's expectations throughout the years. When it comes to [marriage], I may want to be a little selfish," Ariel said, suggesting that she would not be having a high-profile wedding.
Was it a ruse when actor Takeshi Kaneshiro claimed that he is single a few months ago?
Takeshi had always kept a low profile when it came to his love life. However, the heartthrob was spotted with a girl two days ago, fuelling speculations that he is currently dating.
According to Taiwanese media reports, Takeshi had taken a flight from Hong Kong back to Taiwan with his manager on June 23. After he touched down, he was seen heading towards a high-end apartment near the Taiwanese Palace Museum.
The actor reportedly did not leave the apartment for the next three days. On June 24, a girl was spotted entering the residence holding a bag of fast food.
Takeshi was finally seen leaving the apartment on June 26 with the mysterious girl. While Takeshi waited in the car, the girl went to get food.
When reporters approached the girl for an interview, she immediately covered her mouth and avoided the camera. In a surprise gesture, Takeshi helped to block her from the camera. The pair did not respond to any questions asked.
A reporter later noticed that the girl was wearing a ring, which resembled the one Takeshi wore when he promoted Red Cliff in 2009. This fuelled rumours that the pair was seeing each other.
Responding to the rumour, Takeshi's manager agitatedly said, "This is impossible! Definitely impossible! This is so absurd! I'm angry!"
She emphasised that Takeshi is currently single and that the girl was just a friend. The manager also threatened to take legal action if necessary.

Shirley Yeung, who had been dating for 9 years, announced her breakup with boyfriend Gregory Lee a few days ago. Since the announcement, besides having to accept losing his most beloved, Gregory also has to bear the 'man cannot accept' reason. It is obvious that he's feeling very down now. It was said that aside from Gregory's family worrying about him, his friends are also feeling pity for him. According to an insider, on the day of the breakup, Shirley cried expressing she is "pregnant" to the insider and Gregory was informed. However, Shirley still insisted that she wanted to breakup. At the time, Gregory was in deep sorrow, but still attempted to rescue the nearly 10 year relationship. Unfortunately, Shirley stood in a firm position.
Regarding the news exposed by the insider, [Oriental Daily] contacted Gregory to confirm. He frankly said Shirley used 'pregnancy' as a reason for the breakup: "Shirley did say she was 'pregnant', but it's me that doesn't believe it." When reporters contacted Shirley to confirm, her first reaction was: "Where did you all hear this news? Why is it rumored like that? But I have nothing to say." Until yesterday, Shirley still did not admit nor deny to the pregnancy rumors. She expressed her blessings to Gregory: "I have been with Gregory for a long time, he is a very good man. We are still friends after the breakup, I wish him forever happiness."
Besides the strange "pregnancy" rumor that we cannot tell if it's true or false, Shirley's decision to breakup with Gregory is another huge question mark. According to Gregory's older twin brother Augustine Lee, yesterday morning when he was chatting all night with Gregory, Shirley suddenly sent him a SMS: "I still really love you, miss you a lot." As we can see, Shirley is contradicting herself. Augustine expressed: "I don't know what attitude she has, hope she stops sending so many SMS to my brother, he receives one every day and is emotionally not stabled."
At this point, it can be sure that Gregory is feeling very down. When he accepted a phone interview, he admitted he has not recovered yet and still cannot contact Shirley. When asked about Shirley's 'pregnancy'? He said: "I am not responding, I am really unhappy right now. I don't want to hear things that I don't want to hear." As for Gregory's family, to prevent him from thinking too much, yesterday morning at 4am, they drove him back to TVB City to work on his new series. The cast to The Boxing King all comforted him, Gregory was very grateful: "I really want to thank Raymond Wong, Otto Chan and Tsui Wing. They chatted with me for a long time, I really appreciate their concern. (Shirley broke up with you several months ago, how come last month she still celebrated your birthday with you?) I went to work last night and everyone was shocked too because a few days ago Shirley still came to eat with me."
Although there are changes in the 9 year relationship, still need to continue down the road. Yesterday at 5am, Gregory and his father Ding Yeh appeared at TVB City. He bravely faced the media and accepted interviews. When asked if he knows Andy and if Andy is Shirley's old classmate? Gregory appeared very heartbroken and stressed: "I am not responding." Reporters asked again and again, he said: "I want to first get the details of the issue before I explain. Filming of this series is about to complete, I have no time to go find Shirley." Asked again if he believes Shirley is pregnant? He said in a weak voice: "I don't believe, don't believe."
Gregory expressed Shirley moved to Oscar by the Sea because it was convenient for her to go to work. Asked if he felt there was changes in the relationship at the time? Gregory said: "I did not feel it, she was still so happy asking me if I got enough sleep or had enough to eat. (What is the man's most pain?) I am not responding, after all we never had any arguments, I really don't know what's happening. I am just worried of her current condition." Currently emotionally unstabled, it seems as if there is no turning back for Gregory's relationship with Shirley, he will just have to accept the fact. However, he expressed he still loves her deeply: "No matter what, if Shirley needs anything, I will definitely go help her."
TVB executive Virgina Lok expressed she never heard of Shirley's pregnancy: "She's not pregnant, but she did tell me about the breakup. Their decision was made after careful thought, I hope their work does not get affected anymore."

Repeatedly injured, Ron joked that he has to do some worshiping, asked if he'll use stunts double in the future for dangerou camera angles? He insisted on personally doing the scenes himself, but the martial arts instructor knows he's hurt, so will accommodate as much as possible in the movements and camera angles.
