Kenneth Ma and Elena Kong in a Lusty Relationship in “Triumph in the Skies 2”
After a ten-year wait, the sequel to Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲霄> is finally here. With the drama airing next Monday on July 15, Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Elena Kong (江美儀) and cast members attended a promotional event at Hong Kong International Airport today. Noticeably absent was Fala Chen (陳法拉), who missed he promotion due to other work commitments.
The various romantic pairings in Triumph in the Skies 2 will drive the plot in the sequel. Francis and Chilam will fight over Fala’s love, while Ron will be caught between Kelly Fu (傅嘉莉) and Myolie Wu, who portrays new character, aircraft technician Summer. A third conspicuous love triangle will be between Kenneth Ma, Elena Kong, and Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗).
Kenneth and Elena Share Numerous Bed Scenes
Elena and Kenneth have a sexy, but loveless relationship in Triumph in the Skies 2. There will be a kissing scene in which they kiss from the patio to the bed, in addition to their other bed scenes in the drama.
Elena and Kenneth’s romantic pairing was dubbed as a “mother and son” relationship after their performance in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>. Elena was called an “auntie” by netizens, but Kenneth defended her, “She is only older than me by three to four years; she entered the industry early. [Our love] scenes are not too graphic, but the meaning is bold.”
Asked if Kenneth had a relationship based purely on sex in the past, he said, “When I was younger, I desired such a purely sexual relationship. I believe that many men will not mind, especially if the woman is attractive. But I have never tried it and don’t have the courage to do such absurd things now.”
Ron Ng Denies Dating Kelly Fu
Since filming Triumph in the Skies 2 last year, Ron has been linked with sexy model Kelly Fu. Earlier, Kelly implied that she and Ron were more than friends, hinting that they were in the early stages of a relationship.
However, Ron and Kelly acted as strangers at today’s press event and did not interact with each other. Prompted about the rumored relationship, Ron finally said, “I have clarified it many times. She is not my girlfriend. We are not dating. The truth is that we didn’t [date]; there’s no need to talk about the rumors.”
Kelly added that her statements may have been misunderstood by the press earlier, clarifying that she and Ron are only friends.
Francis and Chilam Not Anxious About Ratings
TVB hopes that airing Triumph in the Skies 2 in July will boost sluggish ratings in recent months. Chilam was not too concerned about the ratings, and said he was already happy to have participated in the grand production.
Francis commented on the ratings concern, “It’s inappropriate for me to say. I’ll face it normally; I believe that whether the ratings are good or poor, people will talk about it.” He added, “But I hope there are more celebratory events, so I can see my brothers and sisters. Don’t worry; the ratings should be passable.”
