“The fearless duo"! screen couple

TVB has produced countless well-known drama series. To celebrate the 55th anniversary of TVB Taiwan, it held a voting activity for "I Choose, I Want to Watch", which was divided into two categories: "Our..." and "Unforgettable...".

Result: "Father and Daughter" won 23.3% in "Our..."; and "The fearless duo", which was recently re-broadcasted late at night, became the first place in "Unforgettable..." with 29.8%.

This drama starred Michael Miu, Yung Meiling, Liu Dan, etc. When it premiered in 1984, the ratings exceeded 60 points, becoming the highest ratings of the year. No wonder it was praised by viewers as "the divine drama among divine dramas"!

Yung Meiling, who participated in Miss Hong Kong in 1982, only won the eighth place, but she was still favored by TVB for her beautiful facial features. In the same year, she was arranged to film the drama "Thirteen Sisters", and this drama made her become closer to Kent Tong .

Afterwards, she was highly praised. In 1983, she became famous for her role as Huang Rong in "The Legend of the Condor Heroes"; and Michael Miu in the same drama also succeeded in playing Yang Kang. Afterwards, TVB took advantage of the trend to make the two into "screen couples" and co-produced four dramas, among which "The fearless duo" is still deeply loved by audiences.

In August 1983, Yung Meiling held Kent Tong's arm to attend the Hong Kong Film Awards Ceremony and officially announced their relationship;

However, the two were later reported to have had a heated argument in the dressing room. It was pointed out that at that time Kent Tong had scandals with other female artists, and Yung Meiling also had a close relationship with the wealthy son Zou Shilong, which caused the two to quarrel often. Trapped by love, she was found to be getting thinner day by day, and her weight dropped from 100 pounds during the beauty pageant to 90 pounds.

Suicide three times In 1985

It was rumored that Yung Meiling tried to die twice because of her emotional troubles, but fortunately both failed.

However, on May 14 of the same year, she turned on the gas at home and committed suicide for the third time. It is reported that Kent Tong went to Yung Meiling's house in the early morning of the day of the incident, but was turned away because the other party had notified the security guard not to let him come and harass him. The next morning, the rumored boyfriend Zou Shilong rushed to the house because he could not be contacted. He went to Yung Meiling's apartment to find out, when he arrived at the door, he smelled a strong gas smell coming from the house, and no one responded when he knocked on the door; so he broke open the window and climbed into the house, only to find Yung Meiling in pink pajamas, unconscious in the hall. Her whole body was cold, so he immediately notified the security guard to call the police, and took Yung Meiling to the hospital by himself in a taxi, but it was to late that there was no way to return, and she died at the age of 26.

Back then, Yung Mei Ling (Ah Yung) and Michael Miu (the third brother) were like brother and sister.  Michael Miu and Qi Mei Zhen, Kent Tong  (A Tang) and Yung Mei Ling, the two couples were often together and had a good friendship.

During an interview a long time ago the third brother was interviewed by Chen Zhiyun, he recalled that after he and Kent Tong received the news of Yung Meiling's death they could not accept the reality and they tried their best to bring her back to life.

Ah Tang tried everything possible. A friend introduced us to a Taoist priest who could bring Ah Yung back to life. That night, Ah Tang and I immediately wen to that Taoist priest, hoping to bring Ah Yung’s soul back to life.” The third brother continued with red eyes: "At that time, Ah Yung's body was already in the mortuary, and Ah Tang and I went to a Taoist altar. It turned out that the Taoist priest had already opened the altar to summon souls. I felt so cold inside that I dared not go in, but Ah Tang boldly went in. About half an hour later, Ah Tang came out and saw Ah Yung brought out by two ghost messengers, and said to him: "Ah, I'm so cold!" At that time, I asked Ah Tang, is this really Yung Meiling? But no one knows that Ah Yung asked Ah Tang to be an "Azi". At that time, I thought it was true. The Taoist said that a soul was brought up, but it couldn't get into the body, because a body is in the mortuary."

Making a fuss in the mortuary

Then, the third brother and Kent Tong hurried to the mortuary and asked the staff to show them Yung Meiling's body. The third brother held back his tears and said: "At that time, the mortuary was so cooperative that we could go in and They let us see Ah Yung's body. At that time, I really wanted her to wake up, but I didn't believe it, I really didn't believe it. It's Yung Meiling, I don’t know why I’m going to sleep here, I’m stiff, I really want her to wake up, call her all the way! Will I wake her up? Ah Tang and I are really in love I hoped that something miraculous will happen. We even lost our minds for a while, help her thaw, wipe off the ice on her skin, wake her up! I am so heartbroken to see Ah Tang, Yung Meiling was my unforgettable partner !"

After the death of Yung Meiling, her ashes were placed in a Catholic cemetery at the University City of Cambridge, England; while friends Michael Miu and Qi Meizhen set up a memorial for her at the Cham Shan Temple in Lobster Bay, Sai Kung, Hong Kong, for friends and movie fans to pay homage to.

The third brother revealed: "Qi Meizhen told me that when A Yung came back in a dream, She said that she was so attached to Hong Kong... Me and Ah Tang will go to pay homage to her on the day of her death, and my wife Qi Meizhen will even go more often."
