Charmaine Sheh and Moses Chan becomes new drama idol in Korea

[Sina 27/09/08]

On the afternoon of September 24, TVB held a press conference to commemorate their collaboration channel with CMB (Korea cable TV). Charmaine Sheh, Moses Chan and 10 plus popular TVB artistes attended the event Miss Chinese International 2008 2nd runner up Aileen Xu also sang 《小小》. According to information, CMB and TVB launched TVB Korea since February 1st in order to introduce popular TVB series to Korean audiences. TVB artistes have also become new idols in the eyes of Korean audiences.

Costume action series is most popular

TVB series are well known for genres such as tycoon rivalries, life dramas and costume action series. Since TVB Korea was launched, they manage to penetrate the monopoly of Korean idol series, especially Raymond Lam's costume series which is loved by Korean audiences.

TVB artistes feeling positive on collaboration

During the press conference, TVB artistes such as Charmaine Sheh, Moses Chan, Kevin Cheng, Bosco Wong, Ron Ng, Tavia Yeung etc attended the event. Moses expressed that he admires the performance of Korean child actors, while Charmaine said that she loves [The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince]. Ron looks forward to [The Four] being broadcasted in Korea: "Korean audiences like to watch costume action series."

Miss Chongqing singing performance

Another spotlight in the event is Miss Chinese International 2008 2nd runner up Aileen Xu. This 1.78 meter tall beauty from Chongqing participated in CMB’s [Youth Singing Contest] earlier. Young singing talents from all over the world, ranging for 14 to 22 years old joined the contest. Aileen does not disappoint and won the contest. She will be soon hosting home interior show for TVB8.

Image Hosted by CMB is a subscription channel in Korea, just like Malaysia's Astro Wah Lai Toi. TVB series will be dubbed into Korean before being broadcasted. Saying that they are new idol in Korea is a bit too early, since drama airing is already very competitive in free TV such as MBC, SBS etc - it will be harder for TVB to penetrate the market through cable TV.
