Chong Wai Kin‘s new 40-episode “Prominent Family” (tentative title) will start filming, Damian Lau along with Idy Chan, and Kenneth Ma, Ron Ng, Fala Chen, and Tavia Yeung, the aim is to create a new version of “Yesterday’s Glitter”.

SouthCN / Director Chong clarified: “Prominent Family” will have nothing like “Yesterday’s Glitter”, it centered 1930s Chinese high society. Damian will portray the First Chinese advocate, Idy will play princess of previous Qing dynasty and their love story. Ron and Fala play triad member and troubled girl, and there’s also a big overturn of the regime.”

[Hm… perhaps the love story of Damian’s and Idy’s will be flashback scenes, and the main focus is actually their current situation with the expanded well-off family]

    It looks like it’s true. I’m a little disappointed to see Idy with Damian again, but still glad to be able to see Idy onscreen. Hopefully she’ll have a juicy role.

    hm.. wasn’t very fond w/ Yesterday’s Glitters.

    It’s the 2nd time MingPao reporting this same news, so hope it’s really true. Since it’s considered as remake of Yesterday’s Glitter, the focus would be on whoever will play Damian’s and Liza Wang’s old roles. Really wonder what role would be for Idy that she [supposedly] agrees to film again.

    geeze if Prominent Family is nothing like Yesterday’s Glitters then why even bring up the name.

    anyway, that’s good news that two series aren’t related.

    I would think this drama role should be given to Michael Miu instead of Damian, since Andy Lau isn’t going to be returned with TVB channel station. I have seen Michael Miu’s acting career in Chor Lau Heung with Yung Mei Ling before, I wondered why the director of Chong Wai Kin didn’t give Michael Miu a leading role for “Prominent Family?” I have a bad feeling about Damian’s acting skill, because he isn’t strong enough to play a leading role. On the other hand, Michael Miu is handsome, debonair, good looking guy who can handle a strong leading role in “Prominent Family” instead of Damian Lau.

    Good news. I think Damian Lau and Idy Chan lead the cast. They are good artists. I am looking forward to watching this film.

    With recent MingPao reports on mass resignation of script writers and artists at TVB, not sure if this series will be moving forward to real production.

    And the next important question is there’s still no confirmation on Idy’s side.

    I hope that this film will be produced so I can see Idy again.
