Following Charmaine Sheh indirectly admitting that she's no longer going to be a TVB artist, according to reports, there are other Fadans and Siu Sangs that have the same intention. Bosco Wong although still has 2 years left in his TVB management contract, he is already a hot candidate. Besides Peter Lam having interest in pulling him over to East Asia, other Mainland entertainment companies also wants to cut in to steal him. Another Siu Sang, Joe Ma, his contract is ending at the end of this year, and he is already slowly leaving the nest, going up north to make more money to support his family.
Peter Lam, from East Asia, had already had interest in Bosco long ago. Since he still had a few years left in his TVB management contract, East Asia signed him a singer's contract in 2008 and established a good relationship. Reporters contacted East Asia Executive (Chan Kwong Wing) regarding the rumor, he said: "We have always supported him, if not we wouldn't have signed him a singer's contract with us so fast. His contract with TVB, we are not sure of, but if he decides not to renew the contract, we of course have interest in strengthen the collaboration with him because he has the looks, acting and pretty good singing skills too. He should have a great room for development."
Last night, Bosco was shooting for new series Salute Laughing Sir and was asked about East Asia's invitation? He revealed over the phone: "I still have many years left, I really haven't thought about it yet."
Virgina Lok was asked about East Asia's invitation for Bosco, she said: "Huh? Bosco still has a long contract with TVB! Is it album promotion period? He just had a new song air on the radio."
Other than Bosco, who had been with TVB for 12 years, there is also Joe Ma, who had been with TVB for 18 years that is planning to leave. Last year, Joe went to 'fight' in Mainland, earlier he took part in Mainland series Ad Mania and is currently in Beijing for the press conference of another new Mainland series Legendary. He's development in Mainland is doing well, plus the it's good pay compared to TVB's price. Over the phone, Joe declined to comment about leaving the nest. He said: "Well I won't give up on the HK market, but I hope to have a bigger market. An artist just hopes to have more development. (TVB's contract?) Still discussing, we have consensus."
