Translated by: aZnangel @ http://asianuniverse.net/forums/s1452.jpg 33853.jpgAfter becoming 'double TV King' last year based on the 'Law Ba' role in Ghetto Justice, the title brought Kevin Cheng many gold digging opportunities in Mainland. To keep this momentum, next week's premiere of the sequel Ghetto Justice II cannot fail. For the sequel, Kevin added more to it, on the premiere week he'll have a chain of intense kiss scenes with Myolie Wu and even added his own scene, where he slaps Myolie's butt. Kevin directed his own 'scum' scenes to accommodate the Law Ba and 'Law Yau' (Myolie) gag.

Kevin revealed it was his idea to slap Myolie's butt: "Well the scum stuff is on me. She's my girlfriend, I'm Law Ba and the neighbors call her 'Law Yau', so this scene is pretty funny!" He expressed he has great expectations for the sequel, but he's not sure if the Olympics will affect the ratings.

When speaking of the nonstop kiss scenes, Myolie and Kevin both expressed because they're already a couple in the sequel, so it's reasonable. Myolie said: "I was a little nervous in the first season (part 1), but now that we're more familiar, we have a lot more chemistry. There is even a feeling like we're newly weds, this time the kiss scenes get very hot. (Sparks?) He's like a brother to me!"

Asked if she's afraid boyfriend Bosco Wong might get jealous? Myolie said: "Nope! We're just filming! I'm actually afraid Kevin's fans might get jealous, he's so popular. (A couple team with Kevin?) I am very confident this time, but I want to be a wild couple!" She reveals they create new sparks in the sequel because Christine Kuo gets in between them as the third party. In one scene, Christine got too agitated that there was a car flipping accident too. 
Netizens Vow Not to Watch Ghetto Justice 2 Because of Witness Insecurity Ending

After news broke out that Bosco Wong and Myolie Wu ended their 8-year relationship, rumors had it that it was due to a third party on Bosco's side. However, it doesn't seem to be affecting his career too much as he is continuing to film dramas in China and also achieved great ratings for "Witness Insecurity." His role of cool and affectionate Hui Sir won the hearts of many audiences. In the finale aired last night Hui Sir unfortunately had a tragic death, causing netizens to explode in criticisms. They criticized that it was far-fetched and unreasonable when wounded Hui Sir was trying to find Kui Chi Lum (Linda Chung) on his motorbike. They complained that this was the worst finale ever and fans requested them to refilm the ending or film a sequel to bring Hui Sir back to life.

Netizens vow not to watch Ghetto Justice 2

Netizens pointed out that because TVB is in a hurry to broadcast Ghetto Justice 2, they cut Witness Insecurity from 28 episodes down to 20 episodes; thus leaving the drama to this choppy ending. Some netizens even went further and vented, "Let us protest by not watching Ghetto Justice 2!"

Producer Lau Ka Ho expressed his satisfaction for the drama for causing such a big response and also for achieving over a 30-point average rating. He admitted that the ending may not be the favorite for some audience, but revealed that he also received alot of congratulatory messages on Weibo.

Last year Ghetto Justice was a huge hit, and this year to counter the London Olympics, the sequel Ghetto Justice II (GH2) is seen as TVB's secret weapon to keep the viewership up. In the last few days, Hong Kong's favorite sport, diving, has already begun broadcasting and the China team even won gold in the men's 10m synchronized diving. As a counterattack, last night GH2's premiere starts out with a 'meaty plan' to win some audience back. Lead actors Kevin Cheng, Sam Lee and Jazz Lam showed off their shoulders. Then Kevin and Myolie Wu had challenging intimate scenes. In the series Wong See Fu (Myolie) transform into a bear hugger and initiated a passionate kiss with Kevin. The two also have bed scenes with Kevin stripping to the max.

GH2's premiere averaged at 29 points (1.86 million viewers), but the rating was clearly affected by the Olympics, stealing almost all of the audience. Last week's Witness Insecurity finale week averaged 33 points, this week with GH2 taking over, they lost 4 points (~260k viewers).

Reporters asked Myolie if she's worried that the Olympics would affect GH2's ratings? She said it can't be helped, Olympics only happens once 4 years, series ratings will definitely be affected. When speaking of her intense kiss scenes with Kevin? Mylie expressed it's not done deliberately, it's mostly to describe Law Ba and Wong See Fu's relationship, that they still bicker and are funny.

GH2's premiere got good response from the audience. However, some felt bad that Joyce Tang and Eddie Kwan's roles were gone.

Myolie Wu denies cutting her hair due to love injury

Yesterday Myolie Wu appeared in Sham Shui Po for the promotional event of new series Ghetto Justice II. It is said when women are unhappy, they cut their hair short. Myolie expressed: "Not related, the producer of Triumph in the Skies II asked me to cut my hair. Earlier I was considering if I should cut it or not because it took me a long time to grow my hair out. This time, I saw my new role matches really well with short hair, so I decided to cut it." Myolie stressed there are no problems with her emotions. She has jobs lined up until the end of the year already. When asked if she contacted Bosco Wong? She said: "I don't want to talk about it. (Already moved out?) I will move, but that's my privacy. I don't want to talk about my relationship every time I go out. I hope everyone just focus on my work. (Will you not collaborate with Bosco anymore?) Well no, just see how TVB arranges it. (Do you have many pursuers?) Don't talk about it. I want to concentrate on my work. After all, it hasn't been long since the break up, I need a break. (You were really hurt this time, so need a break?) No, I'm very happy being single. I can enjoy this period of time."

Recently, it was rumored Kevin and Christine Kuo sparked love from the kiss scenes. Yesterday at the promotion, Christine responded to the rumors calmly and joked: "Before the reports always say I pursue the guy, but this time it's finally the other way around! (Rumored Kevin and Niki are getting back together?) I don't know. If it's true, I send my blessings to them." Christine joked fans said her 'love triangle' with Kevin and Niki is even more appealing than the new series. "If the rumor can help boost the ratings, then I don't mind. Kevin and I don't keep in touch outside of the series. Last time I saw him was in the first promotion." When speaking of Netizens having a difficult time tolerating her heavily accented Cantonese? Christine said "the biggest enemy is myself", and she believed she is making gradual improvements.

Myolie was asked about Kevin and Christine's rumor? She said she's not sure of their personal lives. From what she knows, it's not like that, but neither of them are married yet, most important is happiness. "I don't want to say something wrong. Kevin is not in Hong Kong, if he sees this report, he will call and yell at me. When we're filming, he doesn't just treat the girls well, he also treats the guys well too."

Yesterday Myolie Wu attended the promotional event for TVB series Ghetto Justice II. It was announced that the ratings for Monday-Thursday of this week averaged 32 points and peaked at 39 points. Myolie said: "After the Olympics ended, the ratings started going up again. Perhaps last week it wasn't as good, but I hope the final week could set a new record. Kevin Cheng will be back to treat us all a meal, but I don't know if he'll be back in HK for the finale."

Recently, Myolie has been busy shooting for Triumph in the Skies II. As her role is considered an athletic female, she will have several biking and jogging scenes, which has also helped her lose weight. Regarding to Francis Ng, earlier while shooting outdoor scenes, he scolded people in public. Myolie said: "We haven't had any scenes yet, but I believe he won't yell at me. Maybe because Francis is an artist, so his emotions goes up and down." When asked if there's any method she can calm Francis down? Myolie laughed: "I will make a run for it. Running away is the best method! (You already seen Francis' temper in the first installment?) He only does it based on the situation, not on any specific person. That time, we were all inexperienced and young. He didn't yell at us just because he wanted to. If there wasn't Francis, then there wouldn't be me today. He is considered my first mentor, I can withstand his scolding." Asked if she's afraid of being scolded now? She laughed: "No, if I get scolded at now, I'll die. I don't think it will happen!"

Myolie Wu shakes head no hope to reconcile with Bosco Wong

Myolie Wu invited the cast of Ghetto Justice II out for dinner and to enjoy the finale together. As Kevin Cheng is not in HK, he was absent; Christine Kuo and JJ Jia were also absent. When speaking of JJ and Christine's rumors, Myolie admitted she comforted JJ, but was afraid to overdo it. Myolie joked she can't even help herself. When speaking of herself, Myolie said she's fine, but once Bosco Wong was mentioned, she begged for mercy: "Please don't say his name again. If we keep talking about that issue, it will never end." It was rumored Bosco madly tried to patch things up with her, knelt on the floor begging for forgiveness and proposed to her with a 5 carat diamond ring. Bosco also lost 20 pounds because of the break up. When asked if there is a chance Myolie and Bosco may get back together? Myolie shook her head: "No, he won't do things like that. (If he really does, is there hope between you two?) No, I know him. He won't do that."

Last night the two hour finale aired, but the Ghetto Justice fans were still actively discussing. It was a happy ending, but some people had doubts on the Law Ba's murder case. In the series, Law Ba killed Dai Chiu Long (Evergreen Mak), but used "self-defense" as a reason, and the court eventually ruled him not guilty. Netizens actively discussed online, stating that there is no legal evidence that this could happen.

There were also a lot more other scenes that Netizens fussed about. It was said a pair of elders, near 70 years of age, had young school-aged children. It would be more appropriate if they were the grandparents instead. Also, Wong Si Fu (Myolie Wu) took in the blame for Law Ba, which was an obstruction of justice suit, but the story never explained it.

Netizens praised Myolie's valuable tears. In the two hour finale, Myolie cried 9 times and cried 9 different ways. She displayed expressions of pain, helplessness, guilt, panic, etc. Netizens said her performance was just perfect.
