Hawick Lau’s (劉愷威) first television drama as producer, Sheng Xia Wan Qing Tian <盛夏晚晴天>, has been very well-received by the public. To Hawick’s surprise, the 46-episode modern drama has garnered fantastic viewership reception on Hunan Jingshi, achieving an average rating of 6.4 and a peak at 8.74. The drama is currently the #1 television show on the Hunan Jingshi network.

Supported by a successful debut, the 38-year-old Hong Kong actor has now turned on gears to make his second television drama, Heading North <一念向北>, in which he will also act as actor and producer. “My new drama’s script is currently undergoing its fourth revision. Everything is almost settled and done. The script is the only thing that is on my crew’s mind right now. We have been discussing it every single day, and we really hope to add some new subject matters to the story.”

Similar to the genre of Sheng Xia Wan Qing TianHeading North will also be a romance drama, with business intrigue added to the story as a major plot device. Hawick’s character, the cold-blooded Lu Xiangbei (North), will be a foil to his playboy character, Qiao Jinfan, in Sheng Xia Wan Qing Tian.

“I’ve never approached a role like this before. I am very surprised that the scriptwriters decided to give this role to me. The character itself can give more life and excitement to the script.”

Mak Koon Chi (麥貫之), the director of Sheng Xia Wan Qing Tian, will return to direct Heading North. “I trust Director Mak’s arrangements, and he is great at controlling filming environments. As for the scriptwriter, I chose Xu Run (徐闰). She is an extremely talented young screenwriter in this industry, and although this is our first collaboration together, I am very confident with her work. She is great at writing character-driven stories.”

In regards to Sheng Xia Wan Qing Tian’s successful ratings, Hawick breathed a sigh of relief and said, “I was worried about its performance right before the broadcast. Although many distributors gave the show a positive rating, it still didn’t pass the test of the audience yet. The drama still hasn’t received a nationwide broadcast, and over half of the country hasn’t seen it. I admit, I have regained confidence after I heard about the viewership results.”

        same with me. quite like to watch Hawick, he looks cute for his age, but can’t stand how yang mi looks like now after all her plastic surgeries. Gross. Her acting has gone worse now from what she shown during the time of Beauty scheme too. guess popularity got into her head.
