It must be a slow news week in Hong Kong. Following the recent rumors of TVB actress, Koni Lui (呂慧儀), yelling at a TVB Entertainment News reporter and her reportedly picking on extra actors, rumors are rampant that Stanley Cheung (張景淳) and Koni Lui were “hanging out” in the TVB studio’s VIP make up room by themselves. The same insider who said Koni Lui acts like a big shot and picks on supporting actors from the show, also said that everyone knows she and Stanley Cheung are dating, but she wouldn’t admit it. This person even said they are always missing for a few hours and are holed up in the VIP make up room.
Koni Lui admitted she and Stanley Cheung do go into the VIP make up room, but it’s to help each other film clips to upload online. She also reiterated that there are cameras everywhere and told everyone not to overthink it. Koni Lui also said she doesn’t want to respond to her rumors with Stanley Cheung anymore.
Stanley Cheung also addressed the rumors on IG. He said, “I think there is a need to clarify. Because the fact is that it was work and things are being made up about it, I feel very wronged.” He explained he helped Koni Lui a few days ago to film a sponsored clip she had to upload. Stanley Cheung helped her film for two days to add additional shots. He also emphasized the VIP room had a 24 hour camera.”
He defended Koni Lui’s rumors about having a bad attitude. He said, “Also, the whole crew knows. “Crab” (Koni) treats everyone the same. She is a very straightforward and passionate artist. She normally takes care of the team. She would always help out, give pointers, and demonstrate when there is confusion. I think it’s a bit unfair this time. It crossed the line. I understand, there hasn’t been news lately. Just let it be. #dontstartrumors”
As for Koni Lui’s reported bad attitude, Helen Sun (鍾凱琪), who plays “Mrs. Chan” in “Come Home Love – Lo and Behold”, said to hk01.com, “I actually have very little scenes with Koni. I really don’t understand why there are such rumors.” Kitty Chong, who says, “I am pretty dull. I don’t feel anyone yelling at me. Filming for so long, I’ve never been yelled at either. She is a very nice person. She would treat me to foods. We get along really well. She is very nice. If I didn’t like her, I wouldn’t help her get face masks. There are times when I would make mistakes. All of them would remind me. It’s not just her. I don’t have any hard feelings. Them giving me reminders is just watching out for me. In fact, it’s better to tell me face to face than talk behind my back.”
Cinda Hui, who plays “Isabella Kwan”, said, “No such thing happened. Koni didn’t pick on us minor characters. She is a very nice person. She even jokes with us. She even reminds us of our lines. We get along really well.”
Koni Lui responded to Stanley Cheung’s IG post and said two newspapers keep going back and forth with their own versions to the story.
