Danson Tang to star in CTI's first romantic idol drama with Michelle Wai
Taiwanese singer Danson Tang officially signed a contract with CTI, becoming the first Taiwanese artist to shoot CTI's first romantic idol drama. When asked if he's satisfied with the salary, Danson smiled and said money talks damages the relationship. As long as it's satisfying then its fine, but Danson actually wants to have a few days off when shooting Hong Kong the most, so he's able to go out and experience the HK nightlife.
Danson frankly expressed it feels very refreshing and he's excited to shoot a HK drama. He said he had been a fan of HK films and TV series since youth, and hopes he'll be able to practice his Cantonese during the process. He said: "I'll shooting in HK at the end of this month, and filming will run for about 3 months. CTI is very good, arranged a residence with service for me, very comfortable. I hope I could speak my Cantonese lines, so I don't let language drag everyone behind!"
Danson expressed he will be collaborating with Michelle Wai, Sherming Yiu and Terence Yin. He really looks forward to their collaboration. When asked if he's pleased with the salary? He said: "Money talks can damage the relationship. I am very pleased with the salary, pretty much the same as in Taiwan. Actually the long period of filming is not a problem because in Taiwan we often shoot early in the mornings or late in the evenings. However, I do hope the crew can give me a few days off, so I can go out to see Hong Kong and experience the nightlife!"
EEG had always been a good friend of TVB, but they still let their artist Michelle Wai shoot a CTI series. [Mingpao] contacted EEG to confirm, and the spokesperson expressed: "Michelle will be the lead actress in this idol drama, Carlos Chan and Kathy Yuen will also be participating. They are actors, which has nothing to do with their singer contract with TVB." Michelle expressed she will cherish each and every opportunity. This time, her collaboration with Danson will primarily be love scenes, she hopes they will create sparks.
