Aimee Chan (陳茵媺) is currently in Malaysia filming for her upcoming romantic drama Outbound Love <單戀雙城>. The 32-year-old actress takes on her first leading role as a travel agent who goes to Malaysia to escape heartbreak. There she meets Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), a music producer, and falls quickly in love despite initial differences. The two enjoyed a happy relationship until they returned to Hong Kong to find Aimee’s ex-boyfriend, portrayed by Matt Yeung (揚明), waiting to take Aimee back.

Today, reports surfaced claiming Aimee was very upset last Wednesday after being sexually harassed by fellow actors during a scene. In the scene, Aimee was surrounded by a group of men who teased and physically molested her. Allegedly, several of these local male extras saw this as an opportunity and laid hands on Aimee repeatedly. Some were seen touching her back, chest, and arms, while others hugged her inappropriately.

Ruco Chan and Matt Yeung were also on-set at the time but the two purportedly stood by as the scene continued. The crew also did not provide any assistance even though Aimee looked extremely uncomfortable.

Aimee also sprained her wrist during filming and suffered moderate pain. She was feeling very depressed afterwards and phoned boyfriend Moses Chan (陳豪) about the incident. Moses was reportedly furious upon hearing the news and immediately contacted TVB executive Virginia Lok (樂易玲) to file a complaint.

Frequently filming TVB dramas, Niki Chow (周麗淇) was asked to comment about Aimee’s incident at an event on Wednesday. Niki appeared surprised. “Is it true? Did Aimee comment on this? It could simply be a part of the scene. There are many extras and professional actors on a set. It is difficult to decide whom we will be working with”. Niki added that if she ever finds herself in similar situations, she will immediately notify the director to prevent others from becoming victims.

At a promotional event today, Aimee clarified, “Nothing happened! It was a matter of camera angles. The filming progress has been good and we all got along well together.”

TVB Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明) also clarified that after speaking with the producer and crew members, he confirmed that Aimee was not molested on the set. “The incident did not occur as reported by the tabloids.”

      This story sounds outrageous.

      How can the camera be rolling and everybody is there, and she gets harassed? and Ruco and Matt not doing anything? Come on!

      And besides, Vivian Yeo, her good fren is there on set, and she’s Malaysian, so she should know. She was with her all the time during promotion events.

      And these are extras, not that she’s bump into youths loitering in the streets

      Hmmm, if I had to get into trouble for molesting somebody, I don’t actually think I’d pick Aimee as my molestee.

      The HK media is not trustworthy. They often create stories. If this is true, the director should have stopped it instantly, not Ruco or Matt.

      Local people? Assuming Malaysians? What a way to badmouth us eh?

      If it is true why NO ONE came to her rescue? So it can only mean

      a. the men were wusses
      b. no one noticed
      c. it is not as reported which is sensationalised news

        Let’s be fair. There is a question mark at the end of the headline, denoting a question. What is so misleading about the headline?

        But this news ruins the personality of Ruco and Matt, as some brainless people believe it. Fingers are pointed to them instead of all those present. Ruco is receiving attacks in his weibo, so innocent.

          wkl,
          ” Ruco is receiving attacks in his weibo, so innocent.”

          Fans are taking this very far. Aimee has clarified that she was not molested on the set, and Ruco is still being attacked.

          Some got the feeling that this article aimed at bringing down Ruco & Matt, esp Ruco.

      I seriously dont get why people make such a big deal of something when the victim herself say is not true, it was just the camera angle.

      I was present when this scene was shot. Can assure it was all professional acting. I chatted with and watched the hired extras – they were professional with their jobs.
