Kevin Cheng and Myolie Wu were crowned TV King and Queen last year. Since then, their popularity has been on the rise, their workload had a major increase and they've been accepting jobs nonstop. The other day, this pair came out together doing a dragon dance downtown. During the time, the playful Kevin surrounded him and Myolie with the Dragon head, hoping for good luck and another smooth year.
As for the reveal of last year, Myolie had been quite fortunate, she said: "Because I blessed with good scripts and co-stars. Many times, good scripts and partners, we cannot choose ourselves. Just like when the series will broadcast, the genre of the series, if audience likes it or not, so we will have to put in our best effect no matter what and when there are good results, then its like a bonus. I'm very happy to have experienced a fat year (prosperous)." Myolie reveals she would help her mother make turnip cake when she was young, but this year she won't be in HK to spend the new years, so she'll take the turnip cakes with her to prevent homesickness.
Now that Myolie is the TV Queen, she frankly said there are many Mainland scripts to choose from, when asked what her next goal is, does she want to break into the Mainland market? She smiled and nodded: "Yup, but I want to balance, since if Triumph in the Skies II starts in May, then I want to take advantage of this period to go shoot Mainland series Happy Ever After (金玉滿堂) first!"
Developing well in the TV series realm, what about the music scene? Also, remember she did participate in Johnnie To's production last year and was fortunate enough to charge out of HK and step on the red carpet of the Venice Film Festival, interacting with several big movie stars, so it's considered a good start for her. However, Myolie frankly said she's still new in the film scene, so she will try to immerse herself more into the field when she has time. Her next goal is to reaching for the Film Queen title. She said: "Although this is a very distant goal, but as an artist, I should have goals. Of course, I hope one day I can give people a sense of certainty! So, I will continue to work hard."
As for Kevin, he heard how ambitious Myolie was, aside from giving her encouragement, he did not forget to tease her. He joked and said at that time she will have to really look after him, making Myolie speechless and didn't know how to respond. The scene was quite funny! Last year, Kevin became popular in Mainland after his performance in Startling by Each Step and since he got the TV King award as well, he was instantly the King of Gold Digging within TVB. As for his outlook for the Dragon year, Kevin laughed: "I want to keep developing in the Mainland and HK market, also I didn't get a raise, but indeed I did get a lot more jobs, haven't stopped yet. Very happy. (How will you celebrate the new year?) Will be starting a new series in Mainland. Although I''m spending the new year at work, I'm used to it, so it's not a problem!"
