Sze You Tonight (Thoughts and Comments)

Sze You Tonight is a TVB special hosted by Johnson Lee. Its style is similar to American talk shows like the "Late Show with David Letterman" and "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". We have got to say that the name of the show is quite witty with "Sze" replacing "See" as "Sze" is a character of Johnson's Chinese name. Johnson invites celebrity guests up to his show. The guests come up to introduce or advertise new dramas, movies, songs, etc., that they are part of.

Although, the show is creative, it is spilling with rude humour. We think Johnson is a bit overboard with his jokes. His topics often stray off to something inappropriate and even disgusting. We found the whole thing on Jackie Chen, his dressed up assistant was overboard. Johnson frequently made unnecessary insults towards Jackie's working abilities. It seemed he was harassing Jackie Chen, even if it was just for entertainment purposes. Instead of laughing, we felt uncomfortable and didn't want to continue watching. How he forced Jackie Chen to get the permanent tattoo was outrageous! The person who portrayed Jackie probably agreed to getting a tattoo beforehand, but what Johnson did to Jackie was unethical. Also. Johnson's favourite punishment for games is drinking shots which we found to be... inappropriate for young people watching the show. I know it airs close to midnight on TVB, but still. We did not enjoy some of the games and activities as well. For example, the egg cracking game seemed fun, but was a waste of eggs. Same with the pouring of noodles and beer on people's heads for losing. THE GROSSEST THING WE HAVE SEEN SO FAR IS MICHAEL TSE HELPING QIU BO BO CHANGE HIS DIAPER. Qiu was pretending to be his newborn son, and Michael claimed he was great at changing diapers, so he tried it on him. We found it extremely revolting even though they seemed to have fun on screen. What would Michael's son think when he grows up and sees this???

The best part is the ending performance part where singers come up to sing a few songs because it showcased some old Cantopop with Ram Chiang and Alex To and some newer singers like Kay Tse and C Allstar. It's also nice to know what some of the artists have coming up and their experiences filming. Overall, it has a good intention but just filled with unnecessary and disgusting activities.

Artists-- Pairings We Would Like to See


Here are some of the pairings that we came up with. We paired the tvb artists based on their collaboration history, age, acting and such.

1. Kevin Cheng and Kate Tsui


  • Age: 45 and 35
  • They haven't collaborated on any drama that we've seen and we'd love to see them. They have both been with TVB for a number of years and now that Kevin is filming more for TVB, it would be a perfect match                                                                                                             


2. Kenneth Ma and Linda Chung

  • Age: 41 and 30
  • They were a couple (ish) in the last episode of Yes Sir, Sorry Sir back in 2011. Linda does not have any upcoming dramas either, so we would love to see them together! They've been TVB favourites for so many years, it's unfortunate they haven't been given a series together.


3. Ron Ng and Natalie Tong

  •  Age: 35 and 33
  • Ron has been with TVB for a long time, and we've both noticed his recent decline in roles but after Triumph in the Skies 2, we found that his acting has improved. Natalie has been playing sad and deep characters lately, we would like to see her in a happier role with Ron. This pair would be great because of their close age!


4. Ruco Chan and Myolie Wu

  • Age: 38 and 35
  •  Ruco has been gaining popularity through his good looks and great acting. We believe he needs  better female partners, and TV Queen Myolie is the best match. Although she is rumored to be leaving TVB, we hope that we can see them as a pair before she leaves.


5. Edwin Siu and Nancy Wu

  •  Age: 38 and 33
  •  Edwin and Nancy have been in The Confidant, Forensic Heroes 3, and Overachievers but never as a couple. They are both great actors that are getting promoted lots by TVB and we think this would be a fresh pairing.


6. Vincent Wong and Priscilla Wong

  • Age: 31 and 33
  • Although Priscilla is older than Vincent, her youthful appearance would be very compatible with Vincent. They both received the Most Improved Actor/Actress award consecutively and we think working with different actors can improve their acting even more.


7. Bosco Wong and Selena Li

  • Age: 34 and 34
  • Bosco and Selina are the same age which we thought would make them compatible. Selena has not been receiving large roles in TVB though she is a wonderful actress. Hopefully, she will gain a larger role if coupled with Bosco in a future tvb drama.


8. Moses Chan and Joey Meng

  • Age: 43 and 44
  • Both Moses and Joey have shown their great acting abilities in previous TVB dramas. It would be nice to see these two together on screen. We would like to see them star in an ancient drama as we haven't seen Moses in those for a while now. It would be a better match than what TVB has with Moses and Sisley.


9. Louis Cheung and Sharon Chan

  • Age: 36 and 36
  • These two are good supporting actors and are getting more prominent roles in dramas. They can  both be funny, so a comedy would work great for them. We want to see Sharon in a more light-hearted role, since 2014 was filled with police roles for her. It would be really innovative for TVB to make them an evil couple in a drama too.


10. Roger Kwok and Tavia Yeung

  • Age: 50 and 35
  • This is our pair with the largest age difference but we believe that Roger is more than capable in creating chemistry with his co stars. This TV King and Queen couple will surely impress us with their acting. We look forward to seeing them share the screen together.

11. Ruco Chan and Charmaine Sheh


  • Age: 38 and 39
  • Suggested by Funn Lim. We would like to see this pairing as well! Their close ages would work perfectly and Ruco's tanned skin tone would match Charmaine's fair skin. They are both beautiful artists and were crowned My Favorite TVB Actor/Actress in Singapore this past year.


Gotta pair you wanna see? Post it in the comments and we will add it on to the list. :)

Ah Tao, your friendly part-time contributor

Hey!

I know this is Cee and Jay's stage, but I'm Ah Tao, and I'll be your part-time (kelefe) contributor. Like our inaugural post, I thought I should introduce myself a bit. =)

I heard about this blog from Cee since we'd always talk about Hong Kong entertainment, so I'm honoured to be writing on here. I am personally a big fan of TVB dramas and I've always thought of them as the cream of my crop. That comes despite the fact that I've also watched Taiwanese Dramas, Korean Dramas, and Mainland Dramas. It's also despite the fact that I'm not personally Cantonese! I speak Mandarin as my mother tongue, so I would not have known about HK's pop culture had it not been reruns of TVB dramas on mainland TV around 5 years ago.

The very first drama I watched was Beyond the Realms of Conscience. When I look back at it, it wasn't the greatest production I've seen, but that unfamiliarity and curiosity I had when it came on propelled me to search it up online. When I did, I began to absorb the web of information ahead of me, whether it was the fact that the actress that played Lau Sam Ho was Charmaine Sheh or the fact it was produced by 'a foreign acronym' in TVB. From there, I began to concentrate most of my spare surfing time on HK's entertainment scene, the culture and traditions that were reflected by it, and on the Cantonese language itself. I can't enunciate Canto words very well, but I've been proud recently of how I can understand more of the vocabulary and syntax that aren't mirrored in Mandarin.

Aside from that, I'm also a fan of the cuisine that is often reflected in HK and Cantonese culture. Dim sum, curry fish balls, char siu, you name it - I think it was all that drama watching that enticed me. Please don't mind me if I end up conveying any crazy, too-hot-to-handle excitement in my writing. From watching TVB dramas, I'm working on expanding my interest field on areas of HK entertainment like the Voice Entertainment Group, HKTV, and whatnot. I hope you, as my wonderful reader, will give me (and of course Cee and Jay) any suggestions or tips along the way.

Let's finish off here by going back to dramas. I have a profile on MyDramaList as TheAsianPride, where you can check out, quite simply, my 'drama background file.' For a start, do comment and let me know if you have any suggestions for something I should watch. Of course, I'm more familiar with TVB ones, but I'm pumped to explore more HKTV series as well.

Thanks again for checking out our site and for reading in. =)

Songs -- 約誓 - Sammy Sum

約誓 - Sammy Sum

We both heard this song the day it was released on YouTube and enjoyed it. It is Sammy's newest song and he is filming the MV right now https://instagram.com/p/0xaiEsJk1U/   His first album is also coming out very soon in April! We first noticed Sammy's songs when we were introduced to them by someone. He sang effortlessly in 一天一天等下去. We've been fans ever since and have been listening to all of his songs! The story conveyed in this song was simple yet sad. How do we control what is to happen in the future? How do we know that the one we let go is the one our heart truly desires? How should we continue our lives when all we look to is our broken past? Well, this song tells us that it's when we lose everything that we begin to cherish them.

It took a few listens to get used to it. At first, we thought that it was kind of boring and sounded like we've heard songs like this numerous times.

Cee: Hey! Sammy has a new song!

Jay: Oh, new song? (listens) Nice!

Cee: I think it's ok, but it does sound like a lot of other Canto songs.

Jay: It will probably get better if we replay it a couple times.

We both thought that Sammy had a good interpretation of the song, and it was mentioned in the description box that an image came to his mind when he heard the demo. His singing voice is different from his normal acting voice. It seems deeper than usual. He put a lot of emotion into singing it and at times, it sounded like he would break down crying. Good job Sammy and keep up the great work! More posts to come!

望著別人幸福之時 
我更覺心酸 
慢慢熱情地走過來 
看到你淚快落下 
親吻吧 仍為你高興嗎 對嗎 
當晚已看到很化 
我在祝福你找到了是嘛 

如果可相信那天約誓 
在這天已變成你的婚禮 
共你在會面 
你看著我像未曾放得低 
幸福嘛 燒光所有代價 
為她我會付上天價 

但願亦能學識堅持去替你開心 
自願地能認識一下 
要與你愉快說話 
高興吧 仍在說合襯吧 夠嗎 
知道你也會驚訝 
散席後突然在漫罵廢話 

如果可相信那天約誓 
在這天已變成你的婚禮 
若你未道別 
我會共你在未來看婚紗 
幸福嘛 花光所有代價 
為她我會付上天價 

誰都知當晚我的約誓 
在痛哭我變成你的羞愧 
論我沒地位 
也要做腳下爛泥鈣化你的盟誓 
像一切輸光不再浪費 
人失去了才更矜貴 
誰想再挽留這污穢


Welcome!

Hello everyone!!

This is the first post for CeeJay's Entertainment and we would like to talk a bit about what we'll post and a bit about us.

First of all, this is a blog for all things entertainment. There will be focus on Hong Kong entertainment (TVB, The Voice Entertainment, HKTV,..) We will include opinions on dramas, variety shows, songs, artists, and movies! Occasionally, there will be posts on other movies, music and TV shows. These are all from our own perspective on things, merely to share our thoughts. Sometimes we will have posts from Cee, sometimes from Jay. Other times, we will collaborate to write about mutual feelings or differing opinions.

Cee is so excited to be blogging about entertainment! It is an important part of Cee's life and it seemed just right to start a blog about it. Cee hopes this will be a friendly blog where everyone can share their ideas and gain an appreciation for entertainment through Cee's perspective.

Jay has been anticipating a place to write about entertainment. Writing has always been a passion of Jay's. Through this blog, Jay hopes to evoke laughter, tears, and even angst. Jay is looking forward to writing for this blog!

We invite you to interact with us through the comments and hope you enjoy our blog!
