Artistes Are Upset At Hostage Crisis in Philippine

At the end of the11-hour hostage standoff in Philippine yesterday, 8 deaths of Hong Kongers are confirmed. Artistes all expressed their condolence and mourned the dead. Mourning ceremony is arranged in many public events today and attended artistes all wear plain and black clothing to express their condolence.

Due to the affect of the yesterday's hostage crisis, Richie Ren canceled his plan to hold his first concert in Philippine in November. He expressed his company believes it's not suitable for him to go at this moment. Concerning the safety of their idol, many of Richie's fans also advised Richie shouldn't go to Philippine.

Besides paying their respect to the dead, many artistes are angered at the actions taken by the Filipino police and government. They criticized the police didn't properly handled this dangerous situation and took too long to rescue the hostages. Many of them expressed they would not go to Philippine at least for now:

Steven Ma: I hate that one person's fault led to the death of others!...don't understand how to handle the cris? Then don't mess with it! How come you have to take others' innocent lives to prove your incompetence?

Ella Koon: Really mad and upset. Although I'm not a police, but I saw many opportunities for them to take down the gunman. But they chose to break in using force...Now I don't know whether I would go to Philippine again, because that place is really disturbing.

Raymond Wong: The country, the government, and the police don't even have the basic knowledge of how to protect citizens.

Cally Kwong:  Level of the rescue strategy is very low, people aren't smart enough...He was standing at the door when he released the hostage. Police could've shoot him. I really don't understand. You see plots like this in movies all the time.

Roger Kwok and Cindy Ou: Watched interview with the Filipino president...he was smiling frivolously! 

Michael Tse: After this incident, I've lost confidence at their police and security.

Peter Ho and Huang Xiao Ming Refuse to Appear Together

Peter Ho, Huang Xiao Ming, and Barbie Hsu are scheduled to promote for idol drama "Summer's Desire" in Beijing tomorrow. However, today Huang expressed he won't show up with the reason "need to film commercial in Japan," destroying this chance for the trio to show up at the same time.

Peter and Huang are fighting for Barbie in "Summer's Desire." From the beginning of the drama, viewers already split to two groups: For Peter (Ou Chen) and For Huang (Luo Xi). Huang's management company actually stressed Huang is the key of high ratings in Mainland press releases, disatisfying many For Peter fans.

Huang's spokesman explained Huang's sudden change: "We already told the organization earlier that we might not be able to come, so we specially recorded VCR for the event." She expressed because the filming of Huang's new movie "Orphans of Zhao" exceeds originally finishing date, Huang hasn't film the commercials he is supposed to film. But asked whether Huang is already in Japan, she expressed: "Should be, but I don't even know where he is now."

Charmaine Sheh's New Series Receives High Ratings, Celebration Event is Canceled

TVB new series "Can't Buy Me Love" was premiered yesterday and received 36 points ratings. However, Broadcast Authority received 11 complaints, pointing it's inappropriate for TVB to air a comedy. It's known "Can't Buy me Love" would celebrate if ratings is 30+. But producer Mui Siu Ching expressed the celebration event is cancelled and said the point of this series is to send a message of love.

Actors from "Can't Buy Me Love" Charmaine Sheh and Linda Chung have different reactions to high ratings. Charmaine said: "It's contradicting. Don't plan to celebrate. I haven't calm down my mood. Watching the news yesterday, my tears couldn't help but fell." Linda said: "News is news, series is series, how can there be embarrassments? Although I care about people's lives, too, but would still support the series. (It's not suitable to put on a comedy?) Don't know how to answer. I believe company didn't arrange on purpose."

TVB live broadcast the hostage-taking event in Philippines yesterday and received 31 ratings. But some people still complained that it's disturbing to keep reporting "all hostages are dead" during family hour. In addition, someone said foul languages in the news reporting yesterday and external affairs assistant director Tseng Shing Ming said it wasn't TVB reporters who said those things; he believes viewers would understand.
