Katy Kung - Challenge
Last year was considered a prosperous year for Katy Kung. The line up of her series released one after the other and her sitcom was basically on TV every night. Following her performance in Bottled Passion as the rebellious young girl Ko Yi Nga, her popularity was on the rise. Recently in Gloves Come Off, Katy continues her fate with Raymond Wong once again and plays the 'wu lei jing' third party, who breaks families up. She's even worse this time compared to Bottled Passion.
Big eyes, small face and speaks sweetly, Katy Kung gives off the girl next door feeling. No wonder every time she's in a series, she often plays someone's little sister. Katy expressed: "I don't mind playing a little girl, because quite honestly I want to try every type of role. In fact, I should be happy that I'm still young enough to play those type of roles."
Modern version 'Bottled Passion'
Since last year's Bottled Passion, she played the childish and rebellious young girl, fighting with her sister (Elaine Yiu) for a guy (Raymond Wong). Her role was an eye-opener for audience. Recently in Gloves Come Off, she gets so bad that she goes around stealing husbands and plays with schemes to harm others. "Gloves Come Off is the most intense series I've done since my debut. I'm a 'wu lei jing' that steals husbands and I'm much worse than in Bottled Passion. Last time, I was just childish, but this time I use schemes to go harm people. I had some intense scenes, such as falling down the stairs and getting hit by a car."
Katy reveals in Gloves Come Off, she gave away her first on-screen kiss: "I had a kiss scene with Raymond Wong, that was my first on-screen kiss. Both of us continued on from Bottled Passion, so it was fortunate that we were familar. We had a comfortable collaboration."
Although Katy was already prepared to get scolded and hated by audience when the series comes out, but she was still excited. "It doesn't matter, I will try every type of role. If I don't try, I don't know if I can do it or not."
Don't want to be Charmaine Sheh
In series, no matter how rebellious or evil Katy gets, we all will still think its just the behaviors of a childish young girl. However, off-cameras, Katy denies she's a little girl: "I have planning when doing things. Even in everyday life, I would think of what time I should be leaving the door? What time I should do what? Actually, I haven't thought about my direction in this industry, haha!"
Katy claims she is passive and understands that many things cannot be forced. Being promoted? She really doesn't even want to think about it. "I really haven't thought about what position I want to be promoted to. I am already doing well because in every series, I'm the youngest. I get a lot of love from others, I've gained that happiness. I never thought about becoming a Charmaine Sheh or Sheren Tang."
As far as awards, last year she was nominated for 'Most Improved Actress', but eventually lost to Sire Ma. Katy expressed: "In the future, of course I hope to get this award. It is considered a comfort that I can give to my family. Since youth, I had too much freedom, my family is too laid back. They let me try whatever I want to, and because of this, everything I do, it is just a 'three minute passion'. So, I hope to let them know that I am not playing here. I really am working hard." When speaking of her future prospects, Katy really have instantly matured a lot, "Since I started working, each month I insist on saving half of my salary. I really like to save money, and don't know how to invest. Perhaps I can open a dessert shop in the future, but right now I cannot think too much. Maybe when I turn 30, it's still not too late."
High Profile Underground Relationship
As for her relationships, everyone knows Katy is Patrick Tang's girlfriend. Even at last year's TVB anniversary, when Patrick won the raffle, the MC pulled Katy out to cheer for him, but it turns out the young couple still hope to go underground. "I never thought about it! I have never said he's my boyfriend, haha! Even if you ask him, he won't admit it."
What? How can that be? Is it because all this is pressure from TVB? Katy denied: "TVB didn't say anything, just asked me how our relationship is going? Have enough understanding yet? Everyone treats me like a little girl. Actually, there is one thing I decided and I won't regret it. Not just my relationship I won't talk about, other things are the same. I've been like that since youth."
In the last two years, Katy's career development has been going smoothly and it will be difficult for her to avoid comparsion of her future prospects to Patrick's future prospects, "It's not because he's bad, just he hasn't found a record company yet, but he has been shooting series and musicals all along. He still has friends that compose music for him and people can't see these things. I think he's very hard working. A person that sincerely puts in the effort should have pretty good results." As for their future? Katy expressed: "Wah! No one knows the future. At this moment, I will not be getting married. That is just too far from now!" The bottom line is, "career is the priority"!
