Weibo Fever # 14: Still More Celebrity Childhood Pictures (answers included)

Since I last posted about the celebrity childhood pics that I came across on Weibo (courtesy of netizen Chok桐regina), there have actually been about a dozen more pics released.

I will try to post as many as I can here and continue with additional posts as more pics are released, so stay tuned!

Have fun and happy guessing! :o)


All pictures credited as listed

Pic 7: Combined Male and Female Artists – TV Kings and Queens

** Hint: Ok, this is a combined one, containing pics of both male and female artists. All of these artists had won TVB’s TV King or TV Queen award at one point (this should make it easier to guess, since there are only 25 or so artists to choose from). One further hint (this one is a freebie, just cuz I feel like it..hahaha): pretty much all of these artists won the award in the year 2000 and later (only 2 amongst the bunch won prior to 2000).

Answers (place cursor on 'period' and highlight to read):

.Top row (left to right):  Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Gallen Lo (羅嘉良), Liza Wang (汪明荃)
Middle row (left to right): Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), Moses Chan (陳豪)
Bottom row (left to right): Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Bobby AuYeung (歐陽震華), Louis Koo (古天樂)


Pic 8: Combined Male and Female Artists – Martial Arts Stars

** Hint: Another combined one (males and females) – all of these artists are what we would consider as ‘martial arts’ stars – meaning that they made their names in the industry through being involved in martial arts / kung fu. Again, this one shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out, since there aren’t too many famous kung fu stars in the entertainment industry. One additional hint – don’t limit yourself to just Hong Kong martial artists…

Answers (place cursor on 'period' and highlight to read):

.Top row (left to right): Yuen Wah (元華), Sammo Hung (洪金寶), Jackie Chan (成龍)
Middle row (left to right): Jet Li (李连杰), Bruce Lee (李小龍), Donnie Yen (甄子丹)
Bottom row (left to right): John Chiang (姜大衛), Louis Fan (樊少皇), Michelle Yeoh (楊紫琼)


Pic 9: Female Artists – HK Singers (and a few ‘Queens’ of Cantopop)

** Hint: It should be pretty obvious from the title that these artists are all female singers from HK. A few of them rose to fame back in the 80s and 90s, while a few others started in the after 2000s era. There are quite a few ‘queens’ of Cantopop in the mix (though there are also a few who I definitely wouldn't call 'queens'). Anyway, see how many you are able to recognize?

Answers (place cursor on 'period' and highlight to read):

.Top row (left to right): Anita Mui (梅艳芳), Karen Mok (莫文蔚), Joey Yung (容祖兒)
Middle row (left to right): Faye Wong (王菲), Gigi Leung (梁詠琪), Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文)
Bottom row (left to right): Kelly Chen (陳慧琳), Twins [Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) & Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐)], Priscilla Chan (陳慧娴)


Pic 10: Male Artists – Former TVB Artists

** Hint: This one might be a bit harder, as there are so many male artists who had worked for TVB over the years, so I will try to give as many clues as possible. All of these artists didn’t just film series at TVB, they were all male leads at one point (though some were only lead for a few series). Also, none of these artists are work for TVB anymore – some of them have moved into the HK film world while others moved into other ‘disciplines’ such as radio and hosting. Lastly, half the artists have shifted their careers to the Mainland.

Answers (place cursor on 'period' and highlight to read):

.Top row (left to right): Adam Cheng (鄭少秋), Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健), Ronald Cheng (鄭中基)
Middle row (left to right): Steven Ma (馬浚偉), Joe Ma (馬德鍾), Benny Chan (陳浩民)
Bottom row (left to right): Michael Tao (陶大宇), Kwong Wah (江華), Joey Leung (梁榮忠)


Pic 11: Female Artists – After 90s TVB Fa Dans

** Hint: This one should actually be quite easy, as all of these artists are currently active in the TV industry and all but 2 are currently employed by TVB (the 2 are former TVB younger generation fa dans who recently jumped ship to one of the new TV stations). Easy enough, right?

Answers (place cursor on 'period' and highlight to read):

.Top row (left to right): Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Fala Chen (陳法拉)
Middle row (left to right): Kate Tsui (徐子珊), Bernice Liu (廖碧兒), Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣)
Bottom row (left to right): Niki Chow (周麗淇), Leila Tong (唐寧), Nancy Wu (胡定欣)


Pic 12: Male Artists – Current (and former) TVB ‘Eyecandy’

** Hint:  First, I have to clarify that the ‘eye candy’ part is pretty much the original poster’s opinion, not mine [the ‘hint’ that is given by the original poster is that all of these males are ‘handsome guys’ (帥哥) [very important that I clarify that…hahaha]. Pretty much all these artists are currently active at TVB except for 1 person, who has already left TVB and moved his career to the Mainland. Bonus ‘giveaway’ hint: for all you “Triumph in the Skies” fans, yes, this is the set of pics that has all the original ‘S4’….

  1. Wow I actually could tell which one was Bruce Lee cause it looked so much like Aarif Lee! Although I don't think Aarif looks like the older Bruce but he does look like the younger version of him.

    1. Haha...I was actually thinking the same thing. It's funny that when Aarif made Echoes of the Rainbow, I didn't really feel that he looked like Bruce, but after he made that Bruce Lee movie, it seems that every time I see him appear in other movies or at events and such, I can't get the image of a young Bruce out of my head. LOL.

  2. Did you live through the young Bruce period? Bruce Lee is way out of my generation so I really don't know much about him.

    I thought Bruce was mix and his father wasn't Chinese correct? How come in the movie it's different?

  3. opps nevermine it was his mother who was Chinese and half Caucasian

  4. @sport3888: Actually, Bruce Lee was before my time (I'm around the same generation as his children Shannon and Brandon). He was more around the time of my parents generation and since they were (and still are) huge followers of HK entertainment, they knew alot about him (so much so that I grew up knowing about him too and even did school projects on him -- you know, those projects where we have to pick a historical person to research and write about...yes, he was a 'historical' person to me...LOL).
