    TVB Showdown is the on-going feature at inLovewithTVB that will compare anything related to TVB in 3 simple rounds. I first got my inspirations from MuchMusic’s version so I decided to start my own but it’s for TVB ONLY. Basically the point is to have a battle between two similar TVB related subjects in 3 simple rounds. Each round will have a winner. The side that wins the most is of course…the WINNER.

    TVB Showdown #01

    Why? They are both the top two leading fadans of TVB and are most likely to become the next leading sisters. Both starting off as pageants, they reached great success immediately in the world of TVB series. In 2006, TVB released a Lady in Red Album in which both Myolie and Bernice took part in. Both actresses’ songs led to a chance to launch a singing career in which they did collaboration in EEG’s TVB Kid’s Song Selection Album called, Chocolate and Vanilla. Both are highly praised actresses but just who is more successful?

    Round 1:

    Who Launched Out Better?

    Myolie Wu entered the beauty pageant in 1999 where she won second runner-up. After a highly praised performance of her acting abilities during the pageant, she joined TVB after wards starting out as small roles. Starting off with At Point Blank in 2001 but she wasn’t recognized until her role as the younger sister of Gallen Lo in Golden Faith, 2002. This resulted to her chance of winning TVB’s Most Improved Actress 2002 award.

    Bernice Liu was born in British Columbia, Canada where she won Miss Chinese Vancouver in 2000 as well as the award for Miss Photogenic and Perfect Complexion. She then went on to winning Miss Chinese International in 2001 as well as winning the award for Miss Talent and Miss Cosmopolitan. She then signed a contract with TVB and she was became part of the hit sitcom Virtues of Harmony in 2001 where she played the infamous Princess. Although she did not receive any awards but everyone knew who she was.

    So Who wins?

    Bernice Liu!

    Myolie Wu may have gotten an award but she required about 3 years before she was recognized for her acting. As well it took Myolie longer to snatch a main role. Meanwhile, Bernice won two pageants and was a big success in her first series, Virtues of Harmony. Afterwards she played many main roles in her series. She was an instant success! As well, when Myolie first started acting, one of the directors of TVB had said to her, “No matter how I look at you, you will only be a fourth-tier actress! For people like you, if you can't come out on top from the start, you don't stand a chance to compete. It will be difficult for you to succeed!” Not exactly the best way to start a career.
    Who sings better?

    So far within her acting career, she has sung a total of eight songs that belong to her which consists of:
  • To Grow With Love Sub-Theme song aka Miss Pig
  • To Grow With Love Theme song - Myolie Wu & Andy Hui
  • Lady in Red Album (Various Artists) - Fortunately (War & Destiny Theme song)
  • 1+1 (Radio Drama Theme Song
  • Lost in the Chamber of Love Theme song - Ron Ng & Myolie Wu
  • Scavenger's Paradise Theme song - Myolie Wu, Roger Kwok, Kenneth Ma & Cherrie Kong
  • War of In Laws Theme song - Myolie Wu, Liza Wang & Bosco Wong
  • EEG TVB Kids Songs Selection Album - Chocolate and Vanilla - Myolie Wu & Bernice Liu
  • Out of all the fadans, she was the first to step out and sing. Her first song, 1+1 for the radio drama, Sky of Love 4+4 was surprisingly great for a new actress thus lead to the other fadans to step out and sing songs too. On the Jade Solid Gold Charts, Myolie song, Fortunately was #9 [May 31, 2006 - June 06, 2006] and was then #6 [June 07, 2006 - June 13, 2006].

    Bernice started singing in her first series’ album, Happy Together of the hit sitcom, Virtues of Harmony. Songs she has sung ever since includes:

    Bernice’s Truth, for the series Into Thin Air has received two awards and recently Bernice received JSG’s Newcomer Award.

    So Who wins?

    Myolie Wu!

    Bernice’s songs may receive a lot more acknowledgement but I prefer Myolie. Out of all Bernice’s songs I mainly only like Truth and her duet with female VOH casts in Woman Waiting For Love. Meanwhile, I just adore the songs Myolie sing and her voice. I love Fortunately, for its strong lyrics. I love the To Grow With Love songs because they have a catchy tune. I love 1+1 because I just like it. Bernice is a great singer buts it’s just that the songs she sing are much harder for me to follow though and it’s because the judging is based on my opinion. That’s why Myolie won this round =].

    Who Has A Bigger Back up?

    In the acting career, it always helps to have some veterans who approve of you. Who acknowledge you and like you. It just so happens that both Myolie and Bernice have a veteran that supports them or feel they have potential.

    Myolie and Liza collaborated together in their first series, War of in-Laws in the year of 2005. The series were an automatic hit since together they played the roles of in-laws. At the 2005, TVB Anniversary Myolie’s role lost out to Liza’s Role for main character but Myolie felt Liza deserved to win. In return Liza felt Myolie had great potential and soon they collaborated again in late 2005, When Rules Turns Loose. This time they had a mother-daughter relationship and again they had good chemistry. Liza even told the media that she would support Myolie in the 2006 TVB Anniversary. Now, they are once again collaborating for a sequel to War of in-Laws.

    Nancy and Bernice collaborated together, when Bernice first came out in the hit sitcom, Virtues of Harmony. It was the time didn’t know Chinese very well compared to how much more improved she is now. In an article, there was a section where she talks about Nancy:
    Bernice Cried During Her "Virtue of Harmony" Years
    "My first series was 'Virtues of Harmony.' I really have to thank Nancy Sit Ka Yin. During filming, there were often last minute changes to the script. When that happened, my father was not there to help me translate the script. Holding the script, I didn't even know how to read one word of it and was quite helpless. I cried several times because of this. But thanks to Nancy as she explained the script to me."
    "Although I am Chinese, but Hong Kong is still a new place to me. Although this may sound cliché, but Nancy gave me a very warm and secure feeling. Within a short timeframe, I was able to immerse totally into work. Mrs. Tsang was also very willing to give opportunities to new people. Despite my early downfalls, I was able to pick myself up again. I am really grateful to Nancy and Mrs. Tsang."

    Nancy provided care for Bernice when she needed it. Although Virtues of Harmony has ended, time and time they will call each other or chat when they see each other.

    So who wins?

    Sorry Bernice but Myolie Wins! True, Bernice and Nancy Sit may have a closer relationship that could bring a tear to the eye but no veteran could beat TVB’s ah Jie! When it comes to status, Liza Wang has more power than Nancy Sit. Probably because Liza would throw a little fit if it doesn’t go her way while Nancy simply flex around it. As well Myolie and Liza are the hit veteran-fa dan right now. Everyone loves seeing Myolie and Liza thus they have more chances of being together like they are for the new series, War of in-Laws II. Meanwhile, Bernice and Nancy don’t exactly see each other nor have any series together. A nice close relationship that will never proceed can’t beat a popular processing relationship.
    And the Winner is ...

    Myolie wins! Myolie may have not received a good launch into her career but with a good back up, who cares? Liza Wang is the top TVB veteran, so Myolie has definitely made a nice catch. As well, she has a great voice that’s perfect for singing! A lot of her songs are widely accepted amongst people. So far, I believe she has won the most awards out of all the new fadans. Up to date, she has won:

    In recent years, she has also made it to fighting with the older actresses for TVB’s Best Female Actress. An actress with so much recognition is definitely on the route to success!

    So who do you think should have won?
