In the recent year, TVB has been heavily promoting Miss Chinese International (MCI) such as Christine Kuo, Eliza Sam and Candy, who is known as "Jing Jing" in the popular TVB drama The Hippocratic Crush. Next year, TVB had plans to cast her in the sequel The Hippocratic Crush II (THC2) as the second female lead and have her involve in a love triangle Him Law and Eliza. However, due to this drug concealment case, on one hand TVB pitied her, but on the other hand she basically destroyed her acting career because the reputation of an artist is heavily valued by TVB. Candy hasn't joined the crew of new series Master . Understood yet, but Virgina Lok is certainly going to replace her with someone else. In addition, Candy plays a doctor in new series THC2 and the crew is collaborating with the HK Hospital Authority (HA), so it is very likely Candy will be taken out of the case due to her damaged image. It looks like she is about to suffer serious consequences for her mistake!
Producer (Chan Yiu Chuen) expressed he will wait for TVB to notify him before he considers finding a new person. Asked if he's worried Candy's case may bring negative news to the series overall? He said: "Performance and the individual are two different things. Also, she hasn't started shooting yet. After all, we will just wait for more details before announcing anything!" THC2 producer (Poon Ka Tak) is not in HK, therefore was unable to comment.
After being detained for a whole night, yesterday Candy was released and left the police station. She reported to Virgina Lok and was immediately summoned to TVB City for a lecture. Last night, Miss Lok expressed she has already talked in detail with Candy for two hours and her father, a senior dubbing actor, accompanied her. Miss Lok said: "I know she's innocent. She was released on bail and the police is investigating now. (What happens to her new series?) Master . Understood, she is getting replaced because filming takes a whole month and in between, she will have to coordinate with the police on their investigation, so she cannot participate in it. (How is Candy feeling?) She used an entire box of tissues. (She met a bad person?) The driver was a friend of Candy's friend. (Pity her?) Innocence is innocence. The police is investigating! (Why does she have to go on hiatus?) Although she's a well-behaved girl and a Christian, she still has to show it to the public and audience. She is a hard working artist."
Eliza Sam participated in MCI the same year as Candy, yesterday she let out a 'wow' when she heard about Candy's case, "We met while running for MCI. My impression on her was she is a friendly and enthusiastic person. (How is she different?) I don't know how to answer this question. When we chat, we don't chat about those things! Drugs is not good and I hope it's not true. As for myself, I will not touch drugs nor will I get influenced into it. Usually after work, I go to Church. (There are a lot of artists involved with drugs lately!) I can't understand or read Chinese well, so I don't know."
Joe Ma was one the guest judges for MCI during Eliza and Candy's year. He said: "Is it confirmed? It's really hard for me to comment. We are all colleagues, of course I hope it's not true. I haven't collaborated with her before, but I saw her at one of the banquets and we chatted before."
Candy's partner in THC, Nathan Ngai, was very shocked when heard the news. He said: "My impression on her is she is very behaved. I rarely hear her talk about going to night clubs. She is a person that goes home every night. (Will you comfort her?) Yes, I will call her and ask her what's going on; if she's okay. Of course, I hope the incident isn't related to her, after all drug use shouldn't be happening at all." Him Law expressed he just got back to HK and is not sure of the issue. He expressed he cannot comment: "I don't personally keep in touch with her, but I think she's a very hard working girl."
