interesting trivia about kRysTaL~! :)
- she started watching TVB series seriously in 2006.
- the 1st series which got her addicted was “Under the Canopy of Love”.
- before knowing about TVB, the only artistes she knew were Kevin Cheng, Raymond Lam & Charmaine Sheh.
- she used to confuse Jessica Hsuan (in “Square Pegs”) & Charmaine Sheh (in “Point of No Return”).
- before 2006, she’d watched “Point of No Return”, “Square Pegs”, “Golden Faith” and “Fate Twisters”, not knowing who starred in them.
- the 1st Cantonese song and the one which got her stated and addicted to CantoPop was 請講 (Under the Canopy of Love 天幕下的戀人) by Kevin Cheng & Niki Chow.
- for many years, her top 2 favourite actors were Raymond Lam & Sammul Chan.
- she recently proclaimed her top 4 favourite actors as ‘the four’, namely Kevin Cheng, Lai Lok Yi, Raymond Lam and Edwin Siu. depending on which series is airing at the moment, or what news is circulating, their positions differ.
- she gets all obsessed and high over TVB actors. those whom she was terribly obsessed over include Benny Chan (during “Vigilante Force”), Stephen Wong Ka-lok (during “Steps” & “A Journey Called Life”), Lai Lok Yi (during “Always Ready”), Bosco Wong (during “Heart of Greed”), Raymond Lam (during “La Femme Desperado”), Sammul Chan (during “Survivor’s Law II”), Michael Miu (during “Love Exchange”), Kevin Cheng (during “Last One Standing”), Frankie Lam (during “Forensic Heroes II”), Benjamin Yuen (during “Your Class or Mine”) and Edwin Siu (during “When Easterly Showers Fall on Sunny West” & “D.I.E. Again”). makes her sound a bit crazy XD
- she didn’t watch a TVB series in Cantonese till 2007. the 1st series was “Drive of Life”, which she watched online.
- the TVB series which she’s watched the most times – D.I.E. (4 times!)
- her favourite female character was Tavia’s Ah-Yuet in “Moonlight Resonance”. her beauty, and candidness made a character who had flaws, but which was very real and touched her heart.
- the series which made her laugh the most and the hardest was a toss-up between Dayo’s “Men Don’t Cry” and “You’re Hired”.
- she loves Steven Ma’s voice. his singing is the best in TVB. it’s followed closely by Chilam Cheung and Raymond Lam.
- the “Au Revoir Shanghai” theme song is her ringtone. years ago, she edited the clip so that only instrumentals are heard.
- she’d ever fallen in love with a character before. sounds crazy, but yeaa. Sam Koo (Frankie Lam) in “Forensic Heroes II”.
- shows she’d originally thought would be stupid turn out to become her favourites – “Fathers & Sons”, “Men Don’t Cry”, “The Biter Bitten”, “Best Bet”.
- Elaine Yiu has been on her favourite actress list since she saw her in “The Revolving Doors of Vengeance” in 2006; the longest constant artiste.
- the oldest series she’s watched (or is in the midst of watching) is “The Flying Fox of the Snowy Mountain 1985”.
- she has actually watched random episodes of classics like “A Kindred Spirit” & “Virtues of Harmony”.
