Ok, so in my previous post, I had relayed a post that Sheren Tang had written on her Weibo that somewhat hinted that perhaps she will be the next HK / TVB artist to sign with CTI (those who didn’t get a chance to read the post can do so here).
After Sheren’s original post, I actually glanced through some of the comments that other fellow Weibo’ers posted (which is something I rarely do) and it appears from those comments that many others seemed to have the same ‘interpretation’ that I did (that perhaps Sheren has or will film series for CTI). It’s most likely because of these comments that Sheren decided to do an ‘updated’ post a few hours later supposedly ‘clarifying’ the situation.
I will be very honest and say that Sheren’s follow up ‘clarification’ post actually is a little vague and does not completely rule out the possibility of a future collaboration with CTI (she does not come right out and say whether she will be filming series for them or not). Therefore, I would still prefer to take the ‘wait and see’ approach, especially since the stuff I talked about in my previous post (about Sheren’s contract possibly being up and the fact that she prefers real location filming, etc.) is still very much valid (which also means that Sheren working with CTI in the future is not entirely impossible).
Anyway, here’s the ‘follow-up’ post from Sheren’s Weibo:

Translation: Is it necessary to jump ship in order to hope that the new TV station does well? Whether I sign with another station or not, I still want CTI to do a good job – what I’m concerned about is the future of HK drama series and my colleagues having more space to exist and improve. Not to mention that this [television industry] is my career, even if I were only a HK audience, I would still hope that HK TV series constantly improve and perhaps even have a breakthrough or made better! The ‘male-like strong personality’ that you guys like about me is inclusive of both breadth of mind and vision! Weibo friends, perhaps a bit too sensitive?! Good morning!
After reading the above as well as the previous post, what are your thoughts?
