Patrick Tang resigns from role due to love triangle storyline with ex-girlfriend Katy Kung; Penalized to have contract extended by 3 months

 

Although Patrick Tang and Katy Kung have broken up for 3 years, recently in order to create buzz, TVB wrote a love triangle storyline for the two actors in new drama "Trendy Leader". According to sources, Patrick Tang is preparing to get married soon. Because he doesn't want this previous relationship to be put on the table and create disturbances for his fiancee, Sukie Shek, in addition he also needs to go through surgery because of kidney strones, he resigned from his role in the drama. Because of his rejection of the role, TVB gave him a penalty of extending his contract by 3 months. Regarding this, Patrick Tang admitted: "Yes, there is such situation." According to sources, because Patrick feels his TV career development hasn't been going very well, he has decided that he will not renew his contract with TVB at the end of the year when it expires.

 

Ever since his "mentor" Stephen Chan left TVB in 2012, 40 year old Patrick Tang had been given small roles. Thankfully, his love life has been quite smooth. Last year, he met Sukie Shek in the play they cooperated in "Hollywood in Big Hotel (大酒店有個荷李活)" and now they have planned to get married this year.

 

However, luck hasn't been going his way recently. Other than needing to go under surgery because of kidney stones, according to sources, in order to create buzz, in TVB's upcoming drama "Trendy Leader", starring Moses Chan and Sisley Choi, the producer arranged a love triangle storyline for ex-lovers Patrick Tang and Katy Kung, who broke up 3 years ago. Katy Kung would be the third party of the love triangle. Because of his health and because he is getting married to his girlfriend soon, he did not want his past relationship to be put on the table; therefore he decided to resign from the role. As a result, TVB gave him a penalty for exiting the drama, extending his contract by 3 months. His contract was to end at the end of this year.

 

According to a source: "Patrick and Sukie are planning to get married this year, so he doesn't want his past relationships to be used to create news and buzz. Although Patrick and Katy are still friends after breaking up, but he doesn't want such news to cause Sukie to be unhappy. Plus, his case of kidney stones has recurred, so his health condition isn't that good. Therefore, he decided to resign from the role. Who knew that TVB would say that he is rejecting the drama, and made him extend his contract for 3 months. Actually, according to law, Patrick doesn't have to accept such unreasonable requests. Everyone can see how "important" TVB really sees him in the past few years. The company doesn't even have any reason to extend his contract. Actually Patrick has found a lot of achievement in plays in the past two years, so he's decided that he will not renew his contract at the end of the year. But he really does thank the company for having given him opportunities in the past, so if the company insists on extending his contract for 3 months, then he will agree."

 

Girlfriend Sukie Shek praises him for being "man"

 

Regarding having been asked to extend his contract because he refused to play the role in having a love triangle with Katy Kung, Patrick responded through telephone the day before: "Not convenient to say so much, but such situation has happened. But to me, just go with the flow." Asked if he just had a kidney stone surgery? He said: "Thank you for your concern. I'm Ok. I can't say too much, sorry."

 

Sukie Shek also admitted she has heard about the issue with her boyfriend and TVB, she responded through phone: "I heard about it. Not convenient for me to comment on this matter. Every company has their own process. Whatever Patrick does, I will support fully. He has a lot of talent in acting." About Patrick Tang not wanting her to get disturbed so he rejected to cooperate with Katy Kung, Sukie replied sweetly: "Very man." As for Katy Kung, when she was asked about TVB arranging a love triangle storyline with Patrick Tang, she replied: "I am not that sure about this. But if we have to cooperate, I wouldn't mind."

I understands how he feels, but being an actor he might have to be a bit more professional.

Sounds like its a set up. They wrote this script specially for him and he got penalized for not going through.

if the story is true, respect to Patrick for sticking up for himself. Shame on TVB for exploiting him and giving him sh*tty roles.

Best for him. He about to get married and of course he better off meeting with his ex. Best for all three parties.

Did they do that already when they paired him and Selena in that series with Ruco? While I think TVB is trying to create some gossip by pairing the exes together, I think it is kind of unprofessional to refuse a role with Katy since it has been so long that they have broken up. I don;t really see a problem with filming with an ex unless he still holds a flame for her.

3 month extension isn't as bad as 3 years. so that's good for him.

Tvb was prob trying to create buzz by doing then which I am not surprise of. I think he's a good man for being considerate and thinking of his fiancée's feeling

that sweet of him, but I remember he filmed a series with his ex-ex girlfriend Selena Li while he was still dating his ex Katy Kung.

But I guess this is different since he's marrying his current gf now

TVB needs to promote their shows differently... shouldn't have to mess around with people's happiness. Although if their relationship is strong enough, rumors should not affect them

I think Patrick made the right decision not to participate in the series. TVB shouldn't have put him on the "Table" by creating that Love Triangle. Fans will not like to be this kind of series which involved two ex-lovers. What a terrible move by TVB!

Bad of TVb to put him in that situation just for publicity. Have not seen Katy Kung in series in a long time now.
