Chan Kwok Keung acquires TVB; New Boss puts up guard for past TVB rumored girlfriends
TVB changes their boss, 'Shell King' Cheung Kwok Keung becomes the new boss and is certain that TVB will become the TV Station of the Year within the TV Scene in 2011. In the past, Mr. Chan's name often came up in finance and economics and is also a character in the entertainment news. Mr. Chan and his wife have active connections in the industry, often attending public events together. However, Mr. Chan also has several rumors, some of which are TVB Fadans, including Michelle Yip, Sonjia Kwok, Kate Tsui and more. Even famous model Kathy Chow was his rumored girlfriend.
Mr. Chan is a rumor expert. In 2005, he and Michelle Yip were dancing intimately in Beijing at a nightclub, extremely provocative. At the time, his rumors were everywhere. Michelle received luxury property and cars from him. During interviews, Mr. Chan responded to the rumors and said that because he was drunk, he did the intimate dancing. At the time, he was dancing drunk, so didn't even know who his dance partner was and had a fuzzy image. He and Michelle only had that one encounter, and he later publicly apologized to his wife.
In 2006, Mr. Chan invested in the film Wo Hu in which Sonjia Kwok stars as the lead actress. Rumors spread again with him and Sonjia. At the time, Sonjia was given a bodyguard to escort her to and from work, the rumors became really hot. Mr. Chan later clarified the rumors again, he first terminated his relationship with Michelle Yip and then stressed that he did not give her any car or property, nor do they keep in touch. As for Sonjia, they only met once and apologizes for getting her involved in rumors.
Last year, Kate Tsui was stationed in Shawan, Sichuan and was rumored to have connections with Mr. Chan. This time Mr. Chan did not clarify the rumors himself, but his good friend Albert Yeung clarified on his behalf. After several rounds of rumors, it finally came to an end.
Yesterday, Kate Tsui responded that she will not respond to old rumors again. She had already clarified before. As to TVB's new boss, she hopes that the company will get better and better, as an artist it is best to do own part, make good series for viewers to watch.
In regards to Mr. Chan becoming TVB's new boss, Sonjia Kwok said regardless who the boss is, the most important is a raise. She is also worried that the old rumors may affect her, and it wouldn't be good if she gets frozen.
Mr. Chan's extremely good friend Nat Chan said that he is also a reader, he read in the newspapers that Mr. Chan bought TVB and before the fact he did not ask about it. Nat was asked if he will send a message to his good friend to ask him how he will help TVB earn more money? He laughed: "I am already half-retired, unless he invites me back, otherwise I have more interest in watching horses!"
In regards to Mr. Chan's long list of rumored girlfriends, Aimee Chan joked: "That's all of TVB's female artists! He has good taste!" She praised that the new boss has TVB artists as his rumored girlfriends, he has taste. Asked if she is worried that she'll start rumors with him too? She said: "I am not worried, I have always focused on my jobs. If I do have an opportunity to meet the new boss, I will say that I hope to have more opportunities."
Joyce Cheng grew up with TVB, but towards the acquisition, she is not sure of the details, but looks forward to the new appearance the new boss has for TVB.
Timmy Hung admits that he knows Mr. Chan, but does not really keep in touch with him. He said that every artist should just focus on their work, he personally will not have too high hopes. It's hard to believe that he just wants to promote him, Timmy hopes everyone will have more opportunities.
