No Promotion Gimmick This Olympic,TVB?

I'm so surprised TVB didn't jump on this opportunity to promote talents. The 2004 Olympic saw the creation of the "Olympic Six" consisting of Raymond Lam, Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, Sammul Chan, Kenneth Ma, and Lai Lok Yi. It wasn't very successful at the time but in the near future was quite effective under the guidance of Virginia Lok Yi Ling. I'm so surprise Mrs. Lok did not come up with a promotion tactic to go along with the 2008 Olympics especially when it's being hosted in China. I was sure that they would have took this chance to showcase the upcoming female artistes. Guess not... Let's go down a quick round out to see how successful the "Olympic Six" became.

Raymond Lam: The most heavily promoted male artist in TVB History! More so now than ever. I thought Louis Koo got the super VIP treatment, I had no idea... There's a 99% chance he will win Best Actor this year.

Ron Ng: He was so popular back in 2006 & early 2007 my High School wanted him to be our Homecoming King (Not Really). He still is popular now but not as much as he was back then because issues like disputes with his then record label Sony BMG. I still say his popularity and career is a success.

Bosco Wong: Very successful career at this time especially with the airing of War of In Laws II this year. Recently going in drought in leading male roles though. Nonetheless, a another successful promotion.

Kenneth Ma: Persistence will pay off. This is true in his case. He is receiving a big push by TVB. In the last year or so, he was given 3 leading male roles (Survivor's Law II, Hidden Master, & Speech of Silence). People don't realize it but he is technically higher in the promotion ranking than Ron & Bosco.

Sammul Chan: He's not a TVB Management artist. He had a chance to sign with them back in 2006 but turned them down and announced it publicly in the press. It was clear TVB was very upset by this. Right now, he still gets supporting roles in series but don't coun't on a promotional push.

Chris Lai Lok Yi: He really did get the short end of the stick of the six. Even after HOG help propelled his popularity alittle he is still getting the same level of acting roles. He's the only one out of the six that might be in hot waters with the recent promotion of Stephen Huynh and Matthew Ko instead of him.

I also noticed that Kenneth is actually getting more leading roles than Bosco, Sammul, and Ron nowadays. He really deserves it because his performance has been improving a lot.

Wow, I didn't know Raymond is the most heavily promoted TVB artist. Are you saying in term of the shortest time?

I agree that Kenneth is getting more lead roles and he does do a good job. I think he lacks that "it" factor though since none of his roles are memorable.

TVB is spending more money promoting Ray in posters, newspaper, and magazines then any other actors in the history of TVB. He's even breaching into the singing industry
