(Shirley inviting Louis for a picture together)
Yesterday Louis Koo, Raymond Lam, Shirley Yeung, Koni Lui, Evergreen Mak, Mandy Wong, etc. attended the TVB Most Popular TV Commercial Awards 2012. Louis was presented with the "Most Popular Actor Award". He was grateful that the director of that commercial (Samsung's Galaxy Tab) gave him the freedom to develop on his own and the Korean female lead taught him some Korean. When speaking of their hugging scene in the car? Louis said it was requested by the director and stressed he didn't exchange phone numbers with the Korean female lead.
It's been a long time since Louis came back to TVB, asked if he'll be shooting a TVB series again? Louis said: "I still owe them a 40 episode series. Put it on hold first! (Hold until you become a veteran actor?) I hope I'll be retired by then, just keep it on hold! In fact, I have always wanted to outline a TV series different from today's average series, but then can't be too different because Hong Kong audience are still family oriented and won't understand." When asked if he's referring to Master of Play being too different? Louis stressed he didn't say that. Perhaps he'll shoot a Ricky Wong series? He stressed again he still has a contract (per series) with TVB.
Raymond Lam HK Coliseum concert in January
Raymond reveals this summer he won't be holding a concert like in the past few years, instead he'll be holding one in January 2013. He admits he hoped to continue the summer concerts, but felt the most important is to have enough preparation time. Late January is Chinese New Year, Raymond is not worried about the ticket sales being affected by people out on vacation. He's also thankful for fans support over the last few years.
He reveals he'll be recording the last half of his newest album. Earlier he took over 1,000 pictures for the album's cover, each and every picture was taken by him. He had some pictures of him both dressed and undressed, very lifestyle-like. When speaking of TVB series Master of Play's declining ratings (down to 22 points), Raymond believed its related to the fact that HK audience do not like watching serious and deep dramas. When asked if he feels lucky that producer Jonathan Chik didn't ask him to take part in the series? He said he collaborated with him many years ago in Blade Heart.
