wow. good to see Florence Kwok on tv shoes more often. She looks good and her acting is not always the same no more. LOL. I saw a big difference in "Wax and Wane"... she played really well compared to her typical one-dimensional roles of "rich wife" with a few lines. Haha.

Since Ruco Chan’s return to TVB, he has appeared in several series and rapidly makes it to the first line as a Siu Sung. In the latest series No Good Either Way, he plays the lead actor, a laid back young man paired with Kristal Tin. This is considered his first official lead role in a light-hearted comedy series, he frankly expressed he had a pleasant collaboration with Kristal and Louis Yuen. He said: "I don't usually talk to my costars because when I first came back [to TVB], I really isolated myself and didn’t have any self-confidence. I felt there were a lot of things I didn’t know and still had to learn. This time they helped open me up and the atmosphere felt really good, very interactive and allowed me to release myself.” {C}(TN: The premiere of No Good Either Way averaged at 30pts, and peaked at 32pts)

When speaking of the recent praises he got from others, such as director Patrick Kong, who especially named him as the most stand out TVB Siu Sang and praised his good acting skills. Ruco said: “Actually I have never collaborated with Patrick Kong before, I really thank him for the compliments though!”

Praised by producers and directors, Ruco expressed this is his happiest time since graduating from the TVB Artiste Training Class. He expressed TVB does indeed have a lot of suitable jobs for him: “There are a lot of people here that watched me grow, are very loyal and believe that I’m valuable. This makes me feel like all the work and effort in the last 10 years paid off. Last year’s work, I faced them very critically. When shooting The Other Truth and Ruse to Engagement, I was really stressed, it felt like smashing the piggy bank and taking out the money. (Used it all?) No, after working for over 10 years, I have gained more experience.”

Ruco is often paired up with actresses older than him, earlier it was Maggie Cheung and now it’s Kristal Tin. Ruco said the most important is to be able to get into character. When asked in real life, does he mind if his other half is older than him? He said: “I don’t know! I never been in that situation, but I put more emphasis on ideals/thoughts, we must be able to communicate. Especially in this industry, if my other half is immature, then it’s gonna be really hard for her to understand.”

Yesterday No Good Either Way cast celebrated the great success of the finale ratings of 37 points. The cast including Kristal Tin, Louis Yuen, Natalie Tong and Matt Yeung attended, but lead actor Ruco Chan was absent since he's on vacation. During the toast, Louis and Kristal jokingly made a 'libation' to the absent Ruco. Kristal discloses earlier Ruco promised if the ratings reached 36 points, he would go for a nude run, she said: "I'm his wife in the series, so I'll accompany him... but I'll just be with my phone and taking pictures, then put them all online!"

Kristal will be going on vacation after this and will return in September to start a new series, but she doesn't have plans to have children. She actually hopes to buy a home instead: "The housing prices are so high now, this responsibility, I should leave it for my husband Chapman To. He's already recovered from his illness, have to start working hard again!"

Matt Yeung denied the earlier magazine reports that he and his girlfriend went to get a 'room' while he was shooting in Cheung Chau. He explained: "At the time, I was shooting in Cheung Chau and had a day off, so I told my girlfriend to come over." He expressed he'll be having his wedding both in the US and Hong Kong. In September, he will first hold his wedding in the US, and will go according to Chinese traditions, then he'll hold his Hong Kong wedding next year.

Ruco Chan and Suki Tsui were recording a magic performance at a mall for TVB show (玩轉三周1/2). Ruco was worried the trick may be easily seen by audience at a mall: "There are people everywhere, can easily reveal the trick. If there are any mistakes, I'll just put up my Chok look." When speaking of Kristal Tin exposing that he promised to do a nude run if the No Good Either Way ratings reach 36 points, and in actuality the ratings went up to 37 points, he said: "Really? I didn't say that. I went for a jog at the beach earlier, but wasn't a nude jog. Next time I'll go topless!" Asked if he doesn't have confidence on his body figure? He expressed each individual will have an area they feel is a weakness.
