Tavia Yeung Wants 'Mysteries of Love' to Have a Sequel

TVB series "Mysteries of Love" is always accused of copying "Galileo" and other Japanese dramas, even netizens got together and criticize, but its ratings has been  getting higher and higher. Yesterday actors from the series held a celebraton event yesterday. "MOL" aired its 2-hr finale last week and has 38 points of ratings, highest peaking 40 points. TVB even arranged to re-run "Galileo" at midnight on Sundays. Tavia joked: "Really? I don't know, let me take a look!"

Tavia is satisfied with the ratings, and hoping to film a sequel. Asked whether they're afraid re-running "Galileo" will let viewers discover more similar scenes, Raymond Lam said: "Actually last year when we were filming it, many actors already know these types of comparison would appear, so everyone spent lots of work on his/her character, after viewers watch it they would know the difference."

In addition, asked whether Raymond gave Virginia Lok a birthday gift, he said: "Actually I never gave a gift every year, it's always I'm present but not the gift. (Still sensitive about giving gifts?) No, need to think about what gift to give. Saying this in an old-fashioned way, doing well in my concert is the best birthday gift, because Ms. Lok and Ng Yu put many effort to my concert."

South Korean Star Park Yong Ha Found Dead in His Home‎

SEOUL - South Korean entertainer Park Yong Ha, one of the most sought after actors in South Korea and a popular singer in Japan, was found dead in his home in Seoul on Wednesday in an apparent suicide, local media reported.

Park’s body was found by his mother with an electrical cord around his neck but there was no suicide note, The Korea Herald quoted police as reporting.

Park, 32, had recently devoted himself to nursing his ailing father who was in the final stages of stomach cancer. He was reported to have been struggling with sleep problems as well.

Park made his acting debut in 1992 but rose to fame in 2002 in the television drama "Winter Sonata," winning a following in Japan and other nations in southeast Asia.

He also forged a career for himself as a singer in Japan where he put out 10 hit albums in the past five years and won four consecutive Japan Gold Disc Awards — a first for a Korean pop singer.

He was due to start filming in July for a Korean television drama called "Comrades, Almost a Love Story," which is a remake of a popular 1996 Hong Kong film.

Park’s death comes after a string of suicides by South Korean celebrities in recent years.

Figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in 2009 show that South Korea’s suicide rate experienced a sharp increase from the late 1990s and South Korea now has the highest rate among OECD countries of around 22 deaths per 100,000 people.
