Huang Xiao Ming and Sean Lau’s thrilling rivalry in Insanity

Oh! I like the premise of this movie. A hotshot psychiatrist (Huang Xiao Ming) is assigned to provide medical treatment for a highly violent and intelligent psychopath (Sean Lau), who is locked up after murdering his wife. When he refuses treatments and lapses again, what could our psychiatrist do to protect himself and his beloved daughter? Newbie director David Lee will helm the psychological thriller under the wings of director/screenwriter Derek Yee (The Great Magician, One Night in Mongkok, Protégé). The story is written/co-directed by Lee Kuan Yew, and the production crew has been reworking the scripts since 2008. Such dedication! I’m excited to see the final results.

Raymond Lam sings themesong for The Virtuous Queen of Han

 photo VQ4.jpg

Yes, you are the king, Raymond Lam. Having two dramas air at the same time in Hong Kong and Mainland China!

And I’m saying themesong just to be modest, cause he’s singing the ending themesong also, much to many dismay. I like his singing, so it’s not an issue with me. And he has officially left his maiden home at TVB as of this week. I’m not sad, if anything, excited for his future ventures. To be honest, he hasn’t been filming that many TVB dramas so the news of his leaving didn’t surprise me nor left a gaping hole. Moreover, like many other artists who left, he’ll eventually finds his back in a few years because nobody really leaves TVB without coming back. 🙂

Now, let’s promote Vincent Wong to leading man status. You heard him, he needs to invest in a house for his family!

Stills: Raymond Lam & Michelle Ye in “The Purple Hairpin Romance”


ACK! It’s Miss Scholar Lai Kuan & gentleman Siu Wah from Eternal Happiness! *squeals*

Already a decade (since their last collaboration in Lofty Waters Verdant Bow)? Someone’s old…

One of my favorite couples back in the days when TVB dramas dominated my viewing experience. How I missed these two so much. GAH. The drama is said to be based loosely on a Chinese Opera, The Purple Hairpin, set in the Tang Dynasty. Expect major character and plot changes, as always. Raymond is Michelle’s first choice for the leading male character (she hearts him you see, waiting for his busy schedule since last year!), Na Lan Dong, who falls in love with a mesmerizing dancer, Huo Xiao Yu (Michelle), after her marriage with scholar Li Yi, played by Cheng Cheng. How much are they going to change? Let’s wait and see.

The Purple Hairpin Romance will be the third drama Michelle’s produced and starred in. Quite an accomplishment there. Filming has begun last month and she aims for a premiere slot in 2013.
