Earlier this year, Hong Kong media reported that Taiwanese actress Lin Ching-hsia (or Brigitte Lin), had divorced from her husband of 24 years, billionaire Michael Ying. It was said that Michael had found himself a Shanghainese mistress who successfully bore him a son to carry on the family name, after Ching-hsia was unable to do so. The couple is said to have been long separated, and have slept in separate rooms since the birth of their youngest daughter.
After the divorce was reportedly finalised, Ching-hsia is said to have walked away with HK$2 billion (approximately S$350 million).
On Tuesday, Michael’s ex-wife, entrepreneur Flora Cheong-leen, made an appearance at a dance event, where she was quizzed about the reports of Michael’s divorce from Ching-hsia.
With a smile on her face, Flora asked in curiosity, “Why is everyone asking me? There’s nothing (wrong), nothing.” Later, she revealed that she often meets with the couple and their kids, saying, “The entire family are all very happy, there’s absolutely nothing wrong. They are all very happy.”
This has raised questions about the legitimacy of the reports, as Flora's words could be interpreted to mean that Michael and Ching-hsia are still married and that there are no issues with their marriage, contrary to previous reports.
Michael and Flora were married for three years, from 1986 to 1988, and have a daughter, Claudine Ying, together. Flora and Ching-hsia are said to have a good relationship, with Flora having thanked Ching-hsia publicly for her care towards Claudine multiple times.
Ching-hsia (or Brigitte Lin) bowed out of the spotlight in 1994, when she married Michael. She has two daughters, Eileen Ying and Melani Ying, with Michael.
Filming in humid Singapore is no easy feat and Taiwanese actor Blue Lan had a mild preview of what’s in store for him the next three months when filming for All Is Well, a Taiwan-Singapore drama co-production, officially kicks off in end January.
Blue, who was in town with fellow Taiwanese actor Liu Kuan-Ting to launch the upcoming Mediacorp and Eightgeman production, together with local actors Desmond Tan, Romeo Tan and Sheila Sim, was taken aback by our sunny island’s warm climate during this time of the year.
“I asked the staff about Singapore’s coldest period and they told me it’s usually coldest now - during the year-end period,” Blue chuckled, as he likened our year-end summer-like weather to Australia’s climate.
Unlike Blue, Romeo will be bundled up in layers, enjoying Taiwan’s chilly weather and road tripping around different provinces and cities for the next three months. He will be based there and good buddy Elvin Ng, whose scenes will take place in Taiwan, is set to join him there too.
The 33-year-old marvelled at the rare opportunity to combine “work” and “play” in a foreign country, and plans to fully immerse himself and live it up like a local during his ‘exchange’ trip.
TV viewers can expect All Is Well to present an all-new 360-viewing experience: the show spans two series and 40 episodes in total, and events happening in each country will occur concurrently as two parallel plots. The intricate plot is a win for TV fans who enjoy poring over every minute detail and uncovering Easter eggs in both stories happening in Singapore and Taiwan.
To smooth out story kinks and to ensure events are coherently connected, famous Taiwanese producer-director Wang Saudi of A Boy Named Flora A fame, and who is leading the Taiwan team, shared that the script has undergone six revisions so far in hope that the tale of “murder, mystery and mayhem will enthrall and entertain our Taiwanese and Singaporean audiences.”
Over in Singapore, the series will be helmed by Leong Lyelin who has done shows like Sudden, The Dream Job and My Friends From Afar, to name a few.
The drama, which is slated for a late-August 2019 release, also stars ‘queen of idol series’ Joanne Tseng, who will be filming most of her scenes in Singapore, as well as local actors Ian Fang, Chen Hanwei, Zoe Tay, Zhang Yaodong, Paige Chua, Rayson Tan and Denise Tan.
As we await more details to roll in, here’s what we know about the show so far: Romeo will be romancing an older Taiwanese actress to flesh out a May-December romance, Sheila will kick butt as a female cop, and Blue will play a good guy gone bad who locks horns with Desmond’s character on screen.
What is Blue Lan packing into his suitcase for his long-term Singapore stay?
If Blue could pack his wife Jade Chou and two kids ‘Little Basketball’ and ‘Blue Junior’ along with him, we think he probably would. The actor will be spending a good two to three months on this sunny isle as he will be playing a Taiwanese who was raised in Singapore in the drama.
“I might just bring one pair of jeans (chuckles), more shorts and quick-drying tops,” he replied, when asked about his packing essentials to combat the heat and humidity in Singapore.
“I think will bring them (his family) over, but it depends on the situation too. Maybe when my schedule is relatively freed up, I might arrange for them to come visit. I’m afraid of being in the situation where I need to leave for work early and only return at night – because I still need to work, and by the time I’m done, they’re all in bed. So that’s quite pointless … we really need to see how the timings match.”
Romeo Tan teases about his ‘May-December’ onscreen partner
Due to embargo restrictions, little can be said or shared about the identity of the Taiwanese actress who will be romancing Romeo in All Is Well. But what we do know is she’s “a household name” and a “respected figure” in Taiwan and Singapore.
So if could pick a Taiwanese actress he’d like to be romanced by, who would it be?
“Are you talking about Rainie Yang? (Laughs) She’s not really ‘Jie Jie’ (big sister) material, but it’d be great if it’s her… There are [actresses like] Ariel Lin, Lin Chi-ling Jie Jie who fit the requirements, but I think I may get bashed by many people,” he joked.
Romeo added that he will be travelling to Taiwan in early January, before production starts, to undergo culinary lessons to prepare for his role. “I need to learn how to cook so they will be arranging for me to train in a kitchen, and I need to learn how to ride a scooter because that’s my character’s main mode of transport in Taiwan.”
“I think I’m better at cooking western meals like steak and spaghetti. I have no problem with that, but Chinese food is harder because of the ingredients and the proportions of seasoning you’d need for the dish. So I think that’s the toughest,” he added.
Liu Kuan-Ting worries about putting on weight in Singapore
With helpful co-stars like Sheila Sim who already has a food itinerary all mapped out for them, Kuan-Ting shared his concerns about piling on extra kilos during his time in Singapore. “I think I probably will bring more exercise equipment and gear – because I hear Singapore has a lot of good food and I’m worried about gaining weight as filming progresses (laughs). I need to work out too.”
Playing a Taiwanese cop in this drama has its perks – he’s looking forward to running and high speed chase scenes. “So I can save time exercising and conveniently work out on set and burn some calories too,” he chuckled.
Desmond Tan wants to work with Jolin Tsai
Playing a scion of a large corporation, the bulk of Desmond’s scenes will be between him, Blue and Taiwanese actress Joanne Tseng in Singapore.
“She and I play high school classmates and grew up in similar environments. I might play a secondary school student – a ‘younger’ version of myself… I’m excited ‘cos I’ve seen their works and I hope to give the audiences a different [viewing] experience.”
After working with Taiwanese ‘goddess’ Amber An on The Big Day and ‘queen of idol series’ Joanne, who else does Desmond hope to collaborate with in future?
“I’m not sure why Jolin Tsai’s face popped into my head (chuckles). She looks so cool in her recent pictures and she hasn’t acted in a long time, so I’m putting out a love call to Jolin here… I hope to work with you and act with you in anything…
“I’m not a hardcore Jolin fan but I admire her work attitude and how she transitioned from being a singer to a singer-dancer, plus I think she has great fashion sense. I was most impressed by one of her stage performances from last year – her dancers were all at least a head taller than her, but that did little to diminish her stage presence, and she sang seven songs in a go. It was really impressive,” he quipped.
Will Sheila Sim be pushing back her 'baby' plans?
Like Kuan-Ting, Sheila will be playing a cop in Singapore and will need to undergo some physical training to get ready for the role.
So will this put a dampener on her childbearing plans, especially since she and her banker husband intend to start trying for a child in February?
“Actually, I haven’t thought about it and… I don’t dare to tell him about it yet,” she laughed. “I haven’t told him I play a female cop and don’t dare to tell him that I will be doing some action scenes. So, well, now the secret’s out (laughs). But work takes precedence, if I do get pregnant then, I’ll probably talk it out with the director to see what kind of precautions we can take.”
Taiwanese actor Blue Lan made an appearance at a charity event recently, where he updated everyone on his family life.
The actor tied the knot with his wife, Taiwanese actress Jade Chou in 2014, and welcomed their first child, a daughter nicknamed ‘Little Basketball’ in 2015, and their second child, a son nicknamed 'Blue Junior’ in 2016.
Since then, Jade has put her career on hold to care for their children full-time. Blue has also taken on less acting projects, choosing to focus on his family. During an interview at the event, the 39-year-old shared that he plans to return to acting soon, with a new project lined up for him next year.
When asked if Jade will be making her showbiz comeback as well, he revealed that she has devoted all her time to the family and although she really wishes to return to acting, she can’t bear to part with their children. Blue laughed that sometimes, Jade treats their kids as if they were her entire world, and that he does feel “a little left out” occasionally.
“It's a beautiful picture though,” he laughed, referring to Jade’s love for their brood.
Having been married for four years, the couple has grown used to each other, and split the household chores accordingly. Blue is in charge of the meals and cleaning, while Jade cares for their kids.
“I think marriage requires the mindset that you can’t bear a grudge over why the other party seems to be ignoring your words. After removing these thoughts and getting rid of the (mental) wall, everything will be smooth-sailing,” he shared.
Blue also revealed that Jade does not wish to have a third child, and that he respects her wishes.
He also shared that the family is starting to teach their 3-year-old daughter about self-defense, after he saw a news item regarding child molestation. However, Blue will not restrict his daughter from dating after she turns 18, as he believes that it is more important to communicate well with their children to know what they’re up to.
Hong Kong host Natalis Chan turned 68 on Monday (December 3), and celebrated the special occasion with a dinner party. Held at a Chinese restaurant, the dinner was attended by celebrities like Hong Kong singer Alan Tam, Hong Kong musician Bennett Pang, Hong Kong singer Kenny Bee, Hong Kong singer Hacken Lee and his wife, Emily Lo, Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang and more.
The stage featured a banner with the words, “Happy Birthday to Nat”, and the attendees were serenaded by Alan, Kenny, Bennett as well as bassist Danny Yip and drummer Anthony Chan, who make up the 70s Hong Kong pop band, ‘The Wynners’. Natalis and Kenny also sang Alan’s song, ‘Love Trap’ together, turning the dinner into a mini-concert of sorts.
Following the dinner, Alan and Hacken posted some pictures of the dinner on their respective Weibo accounts, sharing the memories that they had made that night.
Are you a light or heavy packer? Organised or messy? A last minute packer or a well-prepared traveller?
These were a few burning questions we posed to the cast of Channel 8’s newest long-form drama series Jalan Jalan at the show’s press conference in October, where we invited them to bring and share with us some of their must-have travel essentials when they are on an overseas trip.
It was an intimate session, to say the least, with the actors airing some of their insecurities and deepest, darkest secrets, and we had it all captured on camera.
We picked up a couple of interesting celebrity trivia about the cast of Jalan Jalan: there is a self-professed fitness nut who needs to work out every day when he’s travelling because of his sweet tooth; a gadget girl who can’t live without her arsenal of techy stuff (even though it weighs a ton); and an idiosyncratic traveller who packs two of everything, just to name a few…
This week, we have Joel Choo who plays the youngest of the Zhang siblings, Zhang Wei Jun, an aspiring singer-guitarist who harbors lofty ambitions of making it big in showbiz. In reality, Joel was first a singer (he’s a member of local band Maxime), before he officially dipped his toes in acting and made his debut on Channel 5’s Faculty last year.
Joel endeavours to be a minimalist traveller when he’s on the go but something about his style of packing and the things he brings seem to suggest otherwise.
Take for example, during his maiden trip to Tokyo for several band gigs in Japan with his group, Maxime, he had a suitcase full of clothes to “battle the cold” but ended up only wearing less than half of what he brought in his “huge bag”.
He recounted bringing three different jackets of varying thickness, five different sweaters and two pairs of shoes (“in case, you step on snow or something y’know, it gets wet and you can change your shoes,” he said) and went through all that trouble of lugging it to Osaka for nothing.
Clothes aside, he’s also the type of person who travels with bags of varying sizes – each to serve different purposes (watch the video below as he explains more). But if there’s one item that he tends to bring “too much” of when he travels, it’s socks.
“I don’t know why but I always bring double the quantity [of socks]. I’m scared I’d dirty my socks…” Joel said, letting in on his irrational fear of going a day without a pair of clean socks.
Makes us wonder how he survived his outfield training during his NS days.
#1 Extra bags
“I’ll always bring extra bags. So this is a recyclable bag – sometimes when you buy stuff and they don’t give you a plastic bag, you’ll need a reusable bag. This is a smaller bag, in case you want to travel light and just need your passport and wallet, and this is a bigger bag to put your passport [and] more stuff, basically… but I end up using the bigger bag only and the recyclable bag will be in it. [As for] the smaller bag, I don’t know why I always bring it but I don’t use it.
“You never know if in the middle of the night you just want to go to the convenience store and it’s dangerous [to bring all your stuff along]. (Ed: Why don’t you just use your bigger bag?) I’m not satisfied if I carry a big bag and there’s only a wallet inside, there’s no body to it and it just feels uncomfortable.”
#2 Film camera
“It’s a film camera ‘cos you know you look cooler when you hold a film camera. It’s like [as if] you know your [photography] stuff. So I just bring a camera even though it’s very heavy and half the roll of film just turns out crap [after developing the pictures]. But I just bring it [anyway]. Then I’ll just post the nice pictures and they’ll be like ‘Eh, he knows how to operate a film camera’. It’s very pretentious lah (laughs).”
#3 Pillow case
“You can’t really trust Airbnb pillows. They say they’ve cleaned it but you don’t know whether they’ve [really] cleaned it or not. I’ll really always bring a pillow case! And I’ll use my own pillow case. (Ed: what about bedsheets?) I think [caring for your] face is more important lah. You’d rather get rashes on your body than your face, right?”
#4 Extra earpieces
“I’ll bring headphones or earpieces, and I’m always afraid I’ll lose or spoil my earphones along the way so I’ll bring two extra sets of earpieces.”
“I have this notebook [because] it’s cooler to write where you’re going… [Like] this was from my previous Taiwan trip [when I visited] Shida Night Market [and wrote] how to get there, what to eat etc. You can’t read my handwriting – only I can read my handwriting. Some countries have cute stamps too, so when I went Taiwan, I kept stamping all the random stamps at its monuments and famous places.”
Taiwan-based Bruneian actor Wu Chun attended a charity activity organised by his own bakery in Taipei on December 3.
Wu Chun's father recently caused a stir when he made an appearance on variety show The Best Times, and his kids also became mini celebrities themselves thanks to Where Are We Going, Dad?. However, when asked if his wife would ever follow suit and make a public appearance, he said that she would have trouble adjusting to the spotlight as she is too accustomed to a quiet, simple life.
"She won't even dare to sing in public! So I will respect her wishes and not force her to make any public appearances," he said.
Despite his celebrity status, Wu Chun admitted that he is a "nobody" back in his hometown, Brunei. "I can go anywhere and do anything I want, and nobody will bother me or even take pictures of me on the street," he said.
When asked if he and his wife plan to have a third child, Wu Chun said that two is enough, and that if another kid really comes along, it would be the result of an "accident".
The English version of Chinese action star Jackie Chan’s memoir, ‘Never Grow Up’, is set to hit the stores this month, with reviews of the book by book critics released ahead of time to drum up publicity.
According to a reporter from The Daily Mail, Jackie admits that he’s a “bad person” in the book, revealing that he had visited prostitutes among other things. In the book, Jackie also shared that he was illiterate, and that he could not even sign his own name at the back of his credit cards. He also shared that he had blown a fair amount of money in the red-light district, and that he had drove while under the influence of alcohol as well.
In ‘Never Grow Up’, Jackie admits and looks back at all his misdeeds, analysing his own actions and past behaviour. However, he made no mention of his illegitimate daughter with actress Elaine Ng, Etta Ng, though he did mention his affair with Elaine.
Reports then speculated that Jackie was trying to erase the presence of Etta in his life, citing his decision to leave out any reference to Etta in his memoir, criticising him for this decision.
If you’ve been keeping up with Jeffrey Xu’s social media recently, you’d know that the actor has jetted to Malaysia to film the much-anticipated remake of The Little Nyonya. With a production budget of S$32 million – about ten times higher than that of the original – the drama will be filmed in various locations in Malaysia and China and is slated to wrap filming in early 2019.
Among the star-studded cast and crew are the main stylist of Chinese TV series Empresses in the Palace, along with Chen Minzheng, who recently went home with the Golden Horse Award for Best Makeup & Costume Design for Zhang Yimou’s Shadow.
The familiar faces returning to the series are Dai Xiang Yu (formerly known as Dai Yang Tian), along with Xiang Yun, and Jeffrey rounds up the list of local actors who are in the main cast. The roles of Jeanette Aw’s iconic characters, Huang Juxiang and Yamamoto Yueniang, will be taken on by Chinese actress Shane Xiao (also known as Xiao Yan), and Qi Yuwu’s character Chen Xi will be played by Taiwanese actor Kou Chia Jui.
Toggle spoke to Jeffrey soon after they started filming, and while he admitted that he admits to feeling the pressure of being a part of the remake of such a well-loved series, he mused that he will try his best not to let it get to him and express his role of Huang Tianbao (originally played by Andie Chen) naturally.
How Jeffrey almost-but-not-quite met Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan
With sky-high expectations for the series, especially from those who watched the 2008 version, we asked Jeffrey how he feels about the inevitable comparisons that will come. “If you watch the remake of The Little Nyonya, you’d feel that it’s totally different from the original,” the 30-year-old said. “I’m confident that we won’t do too badly this time around.”
Jeffrey described the experience of preparing for his role – and working with a mainly foreign cast that he has never worked with before – as a good learning point for him. “When you’re working with overseas actors, the way they work might be very different from what you’re used to, and this is something that you need to learn as an actor and someone in showbiz,” he said. “With fellow local actors, we’ve built up a rapport while working together and we understand each other’s acting style a little better, so we’re able to share ideas easily, but that might not be the case for people you’re working with for the first time.”
Working with an international cast and crew has given Jeffrey numerous unforgettable memories, as he recounted his first meeting with Chen Minzheng. “I thought he’d have a really artistic aura around him, but the first time we met, he said, ‘You’re pretty, but why do your eyebrows look like crescent moons?’” Jeffrey chuckled. The makeup artist then took matters into his own hands and did Jeffrey’s makeup personally, with the actor sharing, “It’s not easy to do that for my eyebrows, and anyone who can draw my eyebrows well is really amazing.”
It hasn’t all been good news, however, as Jeffrey narrowly missed out on meeting Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan when they popped by for a visit. “Jay is friends with (our cast member) Darren Chiu, and the actors’ resting area and makeup unit are on the same floor,” he explained. “They came over to say hi but I wasn’t around at the time.”
Are those wedding bells we hear for Jeffrey Xu and Felicia Chin?
After we were done with talking shop, it was time to ask about Jeffrey’s future plans, in particular, one relating to a certain Instagram post with a picture of a lion that was captioned with, “Our future home……”.
We couldn’t help but to ask if that was a hint that he and girlfriend Felicia Chin are finally ready to bring their relationship to the next level, to which he shared, “There are only 50 prints of the photo of the lion in this world. I’ve been wanting to buy it for the longest time, and one day, when I saw it at the ION art gallery, I couldn’t help but to finally bring it home.”
Letting on that he has yet to hang it on his wall, he revealed that he and Felicia will do the honours together after they move into their matrimonial home. “Buying a house together is something that we’re planning, but as of right now, we’re still putting our focus on our respective careers,” he said. “At the very least, I have to finish my work for this year before we can sit down and think about this together.”
Fans of Hong Kong singer-actress Cecilia Cheung were taken aback by reports from the Hong Kong media yesterday, alleging that the 38-year-old had given birth to her third child earlier this week.
According to the reports, Cecilia, who has largely kept a low profile this year, is currently recuperating at a top-notch, private hospital in Hong Kong, after giving birth five days ago (November 25). She reportedly gave birth to a baby boy whom she had with a 65-year-old "wealthy" Singaporean businessman who hails from the F&B industry.
In February this year, Cecilia had indeed made a post on her Instagram account, announcing her intentions to have a baby. “Before 2018 (ends), (I) need to have a baby, this is my goal,” she wrote. Whilst having a meal with her friends in July, the singer-actress also made her intentions to "give birth to a baby sister (for her sons) soon” known.
However, as there was no news with regards to Cecilia’s love life, it was largely assumed that Cecilia was merely joking when talking about wanting to give birth. These assumptions were later confirmed when Cecilia uploaded a picture of an ultrasound scan, sharing that her cat was pregnant with four kittens.
But, after the reports were published, the media spotted Cecilia’s mother at a women’s hospital. However, when approached by the media outlets for a comment, she denied that she was there to visit Cecilia, saying that she was there to “visit the sick”.
As for Cecilia’s manager, she neither confirmed nor denied the reports, and would only reply with a “no comment”.
Ex-husband Nicholas Tse expressed that he has no knowledge about her alleged pregnancy, according to Hong Kong media, replying, "I don't know" to their questions.
Cecilia and Nicholas went their separate ways in 2011 and she was last romantically linked to Taiwanese host He Meng Huai. Reports of them getting engaged in October this year was refuted by her agency. Cecilia has two sons from her marriage to Nicholas, 10-year-old Lucas and 7-year-old Quintus.
If you’ve been keeping up with Andie Chen on social media, you’d know that he’s currently on a mission: to transform from a man to beast. Don’t believe us? Just check out his Instagram, where he’s chronicled his entire five-week (and counting!) journey of becoming the beast that he’s set on transforming into.
We caught up with the actor at the imaging session of upcoming Channel 8 drama The Good Fight, where EP (executive producer) Zheng Ge Ping was visibly impressed by Andie’s hard work. Comments such as, “Those shoulders are great, make sure you keep them (for filming)” were passed, and afterwards, we asked Andie about it, to which he chuckled that he’s still “far” from the ideal body that he wants.
“Martial arts practitioners may not be super muscular, but you can see from their entire body shape that they’re really ‘solid’, so that’s what I’m still working towards,” he admitted. “I’m playing a fitness instructor so I have to look the part.”
Sharing that his routine originally comprised of two parts, working on his physique and wushu respectively, Andie let on that he’s since decided to focus more on the former due to a lack of time.
As it turns out, his efforts have paid off as he shared with us that his wife, Kate Pang, has reacted well to his new-and-improved self. “Sometimes when she walks past me, she’ll reach out her hand and brush past me,” he grinned. “She’s also mentioned that I look good, so I’m pretty happy with that.”
Kate herself has also been working out as of late, which means that the couple have both become leaner and fitter. But what of the kids? “Avery is still a bit young, but Aden is starting to work out a lot. He really likes superheroes, so the other day when he saw a photo of a bodybuilder on my screen, he was like, ‘This person is really, super strong!’ and was very impressed,” Andie shared.
The little boy has also started taking martial arts classes and has recently graduated to a yellow tip belt after passing the test at the academy that he’s attending. Both Kate and Andie will be more than happy for Avery to join her big brother when she’s older, as the minimum age for being in classes is three years old.
Kate and Andie’s wedding anniversary trip
Having recently celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary, the pair jetted off to the Phi Phi Islands (sans the children, and at this point, Andie had to declare that he loves his parents very much) for three days.
“We basically sat down one day for about two hours and said that we’d book this flight and stay at this place and so on. Since Phuket is an island we didn’t really need to plan much as well and just decided what we wanted to do after we arrived,” Andie said.
Having foot the bill for the trip, the 33-year-old explained that this is his way of thanking Kate for tirelessly looking after the kids. In addition, he pulled of an unusually romantic gesture: he prepared couple rings for them and presented them to a very surprised Kate, who didn’t prepare any gifts at all.
“I was expecting her not to prepare anything, so it’s nothing out of the ordinary,” he laughed. “On the other hand, she was rather touched that I bought rings. It looks like a wedding band and we both have one each. We’re not really crazy about diamonds so it’s a simple design.”
While on holiday, asked Andie if he’s reconsidered plans to have a third baby, something he admitted has been constantly discussed between the couple. “I actually kind of want one, because right now, the kids are really cute, but in two years, they might not be as cute any longer,” he joked. “But we have no time and money to have another one, so that’s going to be put on hold for now.”
Letting on that they have just started to go back to their normal pre-kid lifestyles, Andie explained that having another child would also mean that they will have to deviate from their current schedule once again, which is a consideration that both Andie and Kate have thought about while making their decision.
Andie clarifies the previous hullabaloo about Kate’s online post
Earlier this month, Kate made the headlines for her post about “someone” telling clients that she is unavailable from jobs, clarifying that she is no longer managed by Mediacorp. We asked Andie if there has been any updates on the issue, to which he shared that he met up with the Mediacorp bosses “a day or two” after their post went up and had a good talk with them.
“We shared what we knew with them, and they said that they would investigate,” he said. “There’s no one in particular we suspect, and neither do we want to arrow someone and say that ‘You did this’. I think she made the post because she wanted to be clear, instead of doing so with the intention of blaming others.”
With that cleared up, we asked Andie about his plans for 2019, to which he mused that The Good Fight might very well be his last drama in a while.
He explained, “Two of the biggest reasons why I said yes to this role is because of Ge Ping laoshi (Ed’s note: Ge Ping was his mentor during Star Search), and that this is an action drama. Filming itself will take about four months, and since I have a lot that I’m working on, I probably won’t be taking on any more dramas in 2019.”
