On the other hand, this is the first time for Miss Astro Chinese 2013, Zhiny to take part in a Hokkien drama. She was not a Hokkien-spoken person so it was quite a challenge for her when she first started the drama. However, she’s still learning the dialect and hopefully she could be able to perform better and better in it.



关德辉 said that he was honored to be able to take part in the drama alongside so many veteran actors as well as the new ones. He said that one most essential factor in acting is to “not pressure”. He stated that working with these partners in the series have no pressures at all and he enjoyed it.


欢喜上课lah” revolves around the story of a teacher “warrior” who was hired to a hokkien fisherman village secondary school. He will be faced with the challenges to teach the students who has more proficiency in Hokkien on their Mandarin. There will be a lot of humorous moments which will bring laughter to the audience.

During the showcase, three of the casts have attended including黄一, 翁立友 &小凤凤. They have shared some of their advices to the three Malaysian representatives who were present at the showcase. 

Similar to acting, 翁立友 said that singers need to handle their pressure well in order to be perform well. 

Being hilarious during the interview, 黄一 has been speaking Hokkien as well as Mandarin and he has mentioned that he will be very fair during the contest. Nonetheless, he has given his best wishes to the representatives and hopefully they can outperform the others during the contest.   

小凤凤 on the other hand complimented the three finalists’ performance during the showcase as well as pointed out that they need to learn to perform based on their own styles instead of mimicking other people. Mimicking others in singing is definitely a no-no in a contest.

 翁立友 then performed a few songs on stage and his vocal was really awesome!




Choo Chi Han, Vice President of Chinese Customer Business at Astro said, “Over the past 7 years, Astro Hua Hee Dai has become part and parcel of the Hokkien-speaking communities, bonded by deep desire to celebrate and preserve the culture and spirit of the dialect group. Today, Astro Hua Hee Dai is the most watched Chinese channel on Astro underpinned by the quality of programmes, from Taiwanese Minnan soap opera to a wide array of local and original Hokkien content, including ‘Hua Hee Everyday’, ‘Hua Hee Karaoke’ and ‘Hua Hee Kitchen’. We are proud that our local production like ‘Hua Hee Makan’ has been well received in the regional market such as Singapore.”


“This year, we introduced a new show format for our flagship singing competition, ‘Hua Hee Karaoke’, and the response from the viewers has been great, with a record cumulative viewership of over 3 million and a strong on-ground audience of over 45,000. Encouraged by this success, we are expanding to the regional platform by introducing ‘International Hua Hee Karaoke’, in collaboration with Anxi Association of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, as part of their 85th anniversary celebration this year. 18 aspiring contestants from 6 countries – Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Indonesia will compete to be the regional Hokkien music idol in the competition,” Choo said.
