Old boys get together for a ‘boy band’ thing


VETERAN Hong Kong actor Eddie Cheung Siu Fai (pic) will be performing alongside actors Michael Tao and Lawrence Ng at a concert in China, reported Sin Chew Daily.

To be known as the “Boy Band from the Greater Bay Area”, the trio are expected to perform in Foshan City, Guangdong province, in November.

“The band was formed to thank our fans for their support all this while. We will sing the theme songs of television series, especially those from Alan Tam and Jackie Cheung.

“They are from our era. We feel that our vocals are okay,” said Cheung, adding that chances were high that they would be performing in Malaysia as well.

Dressed in T-shirt, long pants and wearing a pair of slippers, he is now filming a movie titled Behind The Shadows in Malaysia.

Cheung, who last came to the country five years ago, said he would complete his shooting on Oct 1.

He and Louis Koo Tin Lok play private detectives in the movie.

Filming is expected to conclude in mid-October, with most of the scenes taking place around Kuala Lumpur.

Behind The Shadows is a joint production between Koo’s company, One Cool Film, and local film production agency, Filmforce Studio.

Cheung said many places here were ideal filming locations, adding that industry players were keen to do their shooting here.

“If everything goes according to plan, I’ll be here again in October for another movie shoot,” he added.

> China Press reported that Hong Kong artiste Charmaine Sheh, who stars in the drama Modern Dynasty Part 2: War of Others, completed her shooting in Malaysia on Sept 18.

In a social media post, she said: “Goodbye for now, KL, we will be back!”

On the social media platform Xiaohongshu, the Chinese equivalent of Instagram, Sheh said that there were so many memorable moments in her two months of filming in Malaysia.

“I met my old work partner (Raymond Lam) and my buddies again, and got to know new friends as well.

“We devoted our time to work, cared for each other and had a great time feasting on good food throughout our stay here.

“Special thanks to the film crew and Malaysian friends for their care and special arrangement.

“I’ll come to Malaysia again,” she said.
