Linda Chung Breaks into the Music Industry
Recently, TVB’s Linda Chung Ka Yan, Kate Tsui Tsz San, Myolie Wu Hang Yi, Bosco Wong Chung Chak, Ron Ng Cheuk Hei, and so on, lots of artists have signed with multiple record companies. Linda signed with “Star Entertainment Ltd”, Myolie signed with “Neway”, and Kate and Ron both signed with “Asia Vigour”. Linda is preparing to break into the music industry with a “Jade Girl” [a girl who is pretty and pure] image.
TVB’s executive Virginia Lok Yi Ling expressed that they’re in discussion. Asked if she’s worried that people will accuse TVB of stealing other’s rice bowl [by having their artist become singers], she states that it’s only helping artists to develop other talents as well as the market [to expand]. Asked if TVB’s artists would be successful, Miss Lok thinks that every artist has to depend on his/her own strength to fight for awards and will compete with other singers.
“Star Entertainment Ltd” president Ho Jit To expressed that they are preparing to make Linda into a “Jade Girl” idol because at present, the music industry is short of this type. Also, he greatly praises that Linda’s singing is not bad and that she very much uses her heart to work; it’s possible that she can be successful.
“Neway’s” marketing director Wong Jo has also acknowledged that they signed a record contract with Myolie and that they will promote her when her CD releases in half-a-year. “Out of the many TVB actresses, Myolie sings quite well, she has lots of versatility.” Asked if signing TVB’s artists would lead to awards and profits, he emphasizes: “It depends on strength. Myolie and Miss Lok both thought about opening a different market.” “Asia Vigour’s” Director Cheung Dak Gwai said, “We’re still discussing, not sure yet. We will announce when there’s news.”
