HONG KONG - A former assistant of TVB stars has written a book about the vicious corporate culture at the station and singled out two actors for their bad behaviour, says Apple Daily.
One star, tagged as Chok Fung in the book, is extremely foul-mouthed and another, identified only as Smelly Shrimp Man, is mean to colleagues, says the former assistant known as Pseudo-writer.
Apple Daily says the two actors described in the book are clearly Raymond Lam (whose Chinese name is Lam Fung and who is known for being ''chok'' or affected) and Ron Ng.
According to the newspaper, Pseudo-writer started to attack TVB on Facebook last year and his new book, whose Chinese title translates as TVB Blood, Tears And Faeces, is drawn largely from those posts.
The book will be released on Monday, with a foreword by former TVB general manager Stephen Chan, says Apple Daily.
Pseudo-writer has said his posts are based on the seven months he worked for TVB in 2007, on dramas including 2008's The Four, starring Lam and Ng, both 34.
According to the book, Smelly Shrimp Man is gentle and obedient when he speaks to the producer, but arrogant to others.
Once, the actor needed a stunt double for a demanding action scene, but was rude to the stuntman later, complaining about his stench when the two left the location in the same vehicle, says Pseudo-writer.
