Find out if Myolie Wu indeed rejected to renew contract with TVB


35 years old Myolie Wu (胡杏儿) had been working for TVB for 16 years and it was pointed that she rejected to renew contract with TVB upon the expiry in July, and decided to sign contract with Stephen Shiu's (萧定一) company for 3 years with 25 millions dollar (HKD) as her salary. In year 1999, Myolie Wu became Ms Hong Kong and TV Queen based on Curse of the Royal Harem (万凰之王) series in year 2011.

In the beginning of this year, Myolie's popularity in Mainland China increased after participating in the show, Wonderful friends (奇妙的朋友) broadcasted by Hunan TV (湖南卫视). It was rumoured that Huayi Brothers (華誼), 'Hai Run 海潤' and the entertainment company ran by Richard Li (李泽楷) in Beijing invited Myolie to join them. After a year consideration, Myolie decided to sign contract with Stephen Shiu's company as his offer was better than other companies. They will then officially sign a 3 years contract together and this included 25 millions dollars (HKD) as her salary after her contract ended in July. Myolie will also receive 12.5 millions dollar as her advance pay and Stephen promised to tailor-made role for her, and accept quality television series in Mainland China after signing the contract.

Based on understanding, Myolie and Anita Yuen (袁咏仪) acted together in the series, Ling Yang (领养) in Mainland China with 40 episodes. Myolie was paid $250,000 (Renminbi) for each episode and $10 millions in total, and the filming was estimated to end in July. Subsequently, Moylie was invited as the guest to the variety show directed Zhang Guoli (张国立) with 13 episodes and $6 millions (Renminbi). No wonder Myolie rejected to renew contract as TVB offered low package and she could earn higher income from other sources.

When checking with her, Myolie tried to avoid and said: "Huh? My contract is not expired yet and no reply at this moment." When asked if she will sign contract for 3 years with 25 millions dollar, Myolie said: "Sorry, no reply at this point." As for senior management in TVB, Virginia Lok (乐易玲) who accepted the telephone interview, she replied she did not believe Myolie will join Stephen Shiu's company: "I do not believe it at all."
