About the Blog

K for TVB was created by Kerry- back then a 19 year old University student from Sydney, Australia. Her blog has been actively running since September 10, 2006, hosted by Windy-Goddess.net. Being an Australian-born Chinese, Kerry has been exposed to a limited number of TVB series at a young age when her parents rented them on Video tapes. Along with anime that was airing back then (like Bishoujou Senshi Sailormoon), Kerry has been influenced by the Asian culture. It wasn’t until 2006 when Kerry had TVBJ satellite installed at home that she was truly exposed and aware of every series that was released. In the same year during its release, her love and obsession for TVB’s Face to Fate (2006) was evident, and she wanted to share her thoughts on the series. Thus, her TVB blog, K for TVB was created!

Since the creation of the blog, Kerry has remained dedicated and committed by posting thoughts on the TVB series she was watching on episode by episode basis each day, containing spoilers. Some of the posts would include summary, some others would just focus on specific scenes or events which left her thinking. The blog quickly grew into one of the largest TVB Blogs on the TVB online community, with increasing visitor hits, currently averaging over 1000 unique visitors per day since February 2008 and 1700 unique visitors during 2009. The site popularity has influenced and changed the blog more into a fan site, including: Synopsis, Screen captures, Themesong Downloads, Lyrics, Highlights and upcoming TVB series information.

Favourite TVB Series:
Some of these I’ve seen ages back and haven’t seen since, but have left me a deep enough impression for me to remember that I really liked watching it back then. So here’s the list~ until I can think of more that I’ve accidentally left off.

More recently though, I’ve grown to really like period/pre-modern/costume dramas. I initially did not like this period because of  the fashion and felt the series looked kind of boring. However, time and again, TVB prove me wrong! Some of my favourite series are in that genre, such include: Rosy Business, A Fistful of Stances, In the Chamber of Bliss, When Easterly Showers falls on the Sunny West, The Silver Chambers of Sorrow, The Master of Taichi. They fail to disappoint me and hence is the period I have most faith in TVB.

Frequently Asked Questions!

1. Where do you get the screen captures from?

I make them myself =) I watch my TVBJ from the Jadeworld Satellite TV. I don’t have any MP4 or software to transfer TV contents onto the computer, so to make screen captures, I download some of the episodes after watching them (usually only series that are really good ^^). I use “EO Player” to open up the files, and screen captures are taken manually using the “Print Screen” button on the keyboard etc and are then edited and added on this blog. Screen captures taken from the EO player were of lower quality. During the [Life Art] series recently (April 2007), I’ve changed to using Media Player Classic instead.

2. How do you get the time to update so frequently? It’s almost every day!

I try to keep my frequent visitors happy with lots of update, something new to read each day. So..basically I make time! Time to watch the series, time to blog! I usually blog a lot more if I’m really into a series. The better the series, the more posts =) The main thing is staying motivated to update. The motivation is from the continuous support from the visitors by leaving comments in the posts and tagboard. It’s their encouragement that keeps me going, so I really want to thank you guys for your support! 🙂 It makes me really happy and I feel a sense of self satisfaction from maintaining this site. The visitor hits are increasing and I really like to see K for TVB keep growing!

    I love your website. Helluva good infos & spoilers! Fabulous photos & comparisons! Gave me loads of idea which drama to watch. I live in Singapore. But no chance watch cantonese drama. Had to buy them. So I have to be very selective as to which to buy & watch.

    Oh, but I have a must to recommend for you to watch!
    Point of No Return. Cast: Cheung Chi Lam, Charmaine Sheh, Angie Chiu & Damien Lau.

    I watched it 3 times! Great laughter & cry.

    Keep up the fantastic blog!!

  • sarleh says:

    keep up the great work!!

    btw, i like raymond lam fung too ^_^::

  • KTVB says:

    Thank you so much for the comments ^__^

  • Jessica says:

    Hi Kerry

    This website rocks! Really appreciate all the your great and hard work, which you’ve put towards this website. I love Raymond, Bosco and Frankie therefore it’s great to read reviews about them and see their pictures everywhere on the website. Please keep up the good work!

    So far my favourite would have to be Face to Fate (watched 3 time, only interesting parts). I prefer ancient series over modern. The more fighting scenes the better but have to stir away from the computer graphics.

    I can’t wait to watch Tai Chi, hey since you’re a Raymond fan, maybe you should watch the original version of Survival’s Law. It’s got Raymond, Myolie, Bernice Lui and Samuel Chan. Great story line, Raymond is not so hot in there but so charming!

    Reply from KTVB: Aww..thanks for that Jessica 🙂 I really appreciate your nice comments/feedback! I would love to re-watch Face to Fate when I find the chance as well ahaha.. I’ve actually seen the original Survivor’s Law 🙂 It’s listed at the top as one of my favourite TVB series ^^ Currently re-watching bits of Golden Faith with Raymond in it too, he’s so cute XD I hope someday I’ll get the chance to watch Twins of Brothers..even though I heard its not that great..

  • Jessica says:

    Twins of Brothers is kind ok. Quite a lot of computer graphics but you could just watch it for Raymond. I have to say only Raymond’s parts were interesting, esp him and this Chinese actress, Li Qian. He’s so yummy in there. Ron is in there too, man he CANNOT act! So terrible, I try to skip most of his parts.

    In Golden Faith, Raymond was such a spoilt brat. Although he was quite new to the industry he could act really well.

    I am currently watching Tai Chi, it’s quite ok so far. But Myolie’s character is so different to what she usually play. Not sure if I like it….The other main character is quite cute when he’s not acting crazy!

  • nam1ra says:

    I really love this site! It is my primary source for TVB series.

    I love Raymond, Bosco, Roger Kwok, Jessica Hsuen and Myolie. My all-time fav is Eternal Happiness. I’m hoping to watch the series again but I can’t find the series with English subtitles.

    I’m from Malaysia. I watch the latest TVB drama on Astro On Demand. I will be going overseas to further my studies, I’m afraid I’ll be missing TVB a lot then 🙁

    Hey, keep up the great work!

    Reply from KTVB: Thanks nam1ra ^^

  • beng says:

    hi kerry. thanks for all the updates… i’m living in uk and just started following the TVB series about a year ago… funnily i used to live in sydney about a decade ago down in willis street near unsw…

    really appreciate the updates, especially the download for theme songs.

    keep up the good work.

    … oh btw, i facilitated raymond’s visit to malaysia 3 years ago (with myolie, sonija and ron ng…) and was part of the receiving crew for moses, joe ma, charmaine sheh and ng mei hung 4 years back… good times!

    (only problem is i didn’t appreciate them as much as i do now in london! – life!)

    Reply from KTVB: Thanks a lot Beng! 🙂 Ah..I’m so envious of those who get such close contact with TVB stars!!

  • Tammy says:

    Reply from KTVB: Thanks kitty! Really appreciate the time you spent leaving that message for me! 😀

  • Kitty says:

    hi K,

    have you seen “Silver Chambers of Sorrows” ? as I can’t find your blog on this series. I’m watching it now and just wondering what you think about it 🙂

    Reply from K: Hi Kitty! I actually skipped the series because I was busy back then when it was released and I won’t be watching it anytime soon. I guess you’ll be the one watching it and telling me what you think of it! =]

    Thx for making those theme songs download available!! But I was wondering if you have songs from tvb dramas produced before 2006? I’m not all that good at maneuvering around the blog…

    Keep up the good work!

  • Julie says:

    Oh yay! An Sydney-sider TVB blog that I’ve stumbled upon rather late! =(

    Loving your blog, synopsis and opinions of TVB dramas! I’m trying to find TVB-J channel via satellite but I just can’t get it! >”< Oh wells…back to the rentals I go. lol

    Thanks heaps for maintaining such a great site for so many years! ^^ Keep it up! ^^

    • KTVB says:

      Thanks Julie! 🙂 Glad you like it~ A Sydney-sider too? I’m assuming you have the other satellite dish? I think they don’t cover TVB and you can only get it through installing TVB.com.au’s one. XD

      • Julie says:

        There’s the ‘other’ satellite? Mum installed a satellite for one of her programs…and i was secretly hoping for more…how should i say this…more “watchable and entertaining” channels…but no! =( LOL

        I’ll stick to your spoilers til i watch them myself! XP
