Since its broadcast, Hong Kong TVB drama, The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時> has broken through 30 points in its ratings. Cast members, Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Tavia Yeung (楊怡) , Him Law (羅仲謙), and Mandy Wong (黃智雯) promoted the drama at a basketball event yesterday, hoping to rally the ratings to higher peaks when its finale will be broadcast on Friday, March 16th. Last week’s ratings for The Hippocratic Crush averaged 31 points.
Since the broadcast of The Hippocratic Crush, Kenneth’s brilliant neurosurgeon role was highly popular with the audience. As a result, his relationship status with Nancy Wu (胡定欣) also became recent gossip fodder. Nancy had a 6-second cameo role in The Hippocratic Crush which aroused speculations that she had visited Kenneth on the set, thus deciding to portray the cameo role. Kenneth declared that the pair were currently friends, professing earlier that they had already broken up. In addition, numerous artists were curious about the realistic operating room used in The Hippocratic Crush and had visited the set. According to Oriental Daily, Kenneth spoke of his relationship with Nancy in this manner, “We will let things run their natural course. No one knows what will happen in the future, with each person holding different expectations for friends and lovers. It feels very comfortable to be friends right now. Maybe in the future, my romantic rumors with Margie Tsang ( 曾華倩) will be reignited. All my rumored girlfriends were bestowed upon me by the media!”
At the event yesterday, rumored couple, Tavia Yeung and Him Law continued to attract attention due to speculations over their relationship status. Asked if he was pursuing Tavia, Him replied, “There’s no such thing.” (Did Tavia pursue Him?) “No, we are good friends only.”
Tavia acted as a cheerleader for the TVB team at the basketball game yesterday. Despite the Chief Executive election debates airing right before The Hippocratic Crush finale on Friday night, she did not feel that this will impact the ratings for the drama. Instead, Tavia hoped that the ratings will break through 40 points!
The cast members of The Hippocratic Crush played against a student team, who beat the TVB artists with a landslide victory of 18 to 7 points. During the game, Him Law lost his balance and landed his hip on the ground. Although Kenneth Ma appeared to be an expert basketball player in The Hippocratic Crush, Tavia Yeung revealed that he was in fact terrible at the sport! Kenneth’s basketball “expertise” was the result of numerous outtakes and careful editing! Wearing leather pants and leather shoes, Kenneth professed that he did not even own a pair of basketball sneakers at home, while soccer was his favorite sport.
