Master Sin Ho Ying publicly criticizes Kevin Cheng: "Does Not Know How to Respect Others"
Since Kevin Cheng became TVB's TV King, he has been surrounded by more and more gossips. Aside from the rumors that he is madly pursuing Annie Liu, recently his new series Gloves Come Off (GCO) has been getting positive feedback, but there are just as much negative news. Following the speculations that GCO plagiarized the filmA Fighter's Blues, lately it has been said that the action director for GCO, Master Sin Ho Ying publicly criticized Kevin, describing him as a good actor, but he's too self-centered and does not know how to respect others.
It was understood that when the two were filming GCO, they already had conflicts. Off-cameras, Kevin didn't talk to Master Sin's two apprentices Raymond Wong and Brian Wong at all. Up until Master Sin's recent switch over to Ricky Wong's CTI, he had no more apprehensions and freely exposed his previous grudge. Also, Netizens criticized Kevin's performance in GCO, that he was only able to 'chok' and even crowned him as 'Rubber Wing' (Kevin Cheng Ka Wing).
A few days ago, Kevin was back in HK for promotions, but after work he didn't go home to rest, instead he headed to Causeway Bay for a dental cleaning. Perhaps its because of the abundance of negative news lately that he has to wash them all away with a dental cleaning. Kevin said: "After so many years in the industry, must have some maintenance, same goes for the teeth." The day before, he went for a haircut, it looks like the most important is to maintain his handsome looks. As to publicly criticizing Sin Ho Ying, yesterday Kevin was back in Mainland for work and responded over the phone: "Different people have different views. People that don't know me will misunderstand me, I won't comment too much. After all, it's enough that people who know me well, knows the situation."
GCO's producer (Law Wing Yin) expressed he has seen the reports. Regarding Kevin's words being too over and severe, Producer Law said: "Sin Ho Ying voluntarily helped us by being our boxing adviser, of course there will be different opinions among us, but the shooting process went smoothly. Master Sin has his own principle that he has to express his opinions, while Kevin can get very tense towards his work. Towards filming he won't go easy and gets very tense. This type of personality, you can't say it's good or bad, but after discussing as a group, Kevin still does it. This time, I can see where Master Sin is coming from, Kevin's words were a little too severe. I will talk to Kevin about it!"
As Master Sin's apprentice, Raymond Wong, strongly supported his teacher and said Kevin has an ego: "When we were filming, I didn't hear any arguments between them. (What do you think of Kevin as a person?) We usually just nod as a greeting! He is self-centered! We don't come into contact much, and when we do, its at the boxing stage because we are opponents in the series!"
Kevin is one of TVB executive Virgina Lok's favorites. Yesterday in regards to Master Sin madly scolding Kevin, she said: "Martial artists are just that direct!" Then Virgina expressed that Raymond has been learning martial arts with Master Sin, but its new to Kevin, so having to box like a pro in a short period of time is not easy: "Kevin has been injured after all, so he wants a clear understanding of all action scenes. He's not like Raymond Wong, who has such good chemistry with Master Sin!"
Female Co-Stars Support Kevin
Kevin's female co-stars Selena Li, Natalie Tong and Kate Tsui strongly supported Kevin's character. Kevin's girlfriend from the series, Selena actually praised him instead: "I didn't see any arguments between them. It's just for the good of the series that they all have opinions. The Kevin I know is not like that, actually his personality is very real and direct. We can actually become true friends. (Master Sin was madly scolding him?) I don't believe he would say that!"
Natalie expressed there are several boxing scenes in the series and they all are feeling exhausted and just don't have the strength to argue. As for Kevin described as being self-centered and arrogant, Natalie said: "I haven't heard of that. Each artist has their own views and attitudes. Artists need to have some self-centeredness. I don't think Kevin would take out his bad moods on other people." As for guest star Kate Tsui, yesterday she said over the phone: "Is there some sort of misunderstanding? I have known Kevin for so long, I know what type of personality he has, he's just rather frank."
