Benjamin Yuen Likes to Show Off Cooking to His Girlfriend

Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), Gigi Wong (黃淑儀), Jason Chan (陳智燊), and Becky Lee (李璧琦) came together this week to promote their TVB drama Threesome <三個女人一個「因」>, which premiered on Sunday, February 18. The show tells the story of the young lawyer Evie Fong (portrayed by Mandy), who suffers from dissociative identity disorder.

At the promotional event, the Threesome cast showed off their cooking skills and prepared a few pancakes on the spot in preparation for the Lantern Festival. Ben handled the kitchen utensils with ease, showing off his cooking skills.

“I was Gigi’s assistant when we shot her cooking show in Malaysia a few years back,” said Ben. “I’ve learned a lot on the show. I’ve developed an interest in cooking a few years ago. I’ve always been a very picky eater, and that manifested into my interest in cooking.”

Asking if he would always cook for his girlfriend Bowie Cheung (張寶兒), Ben said, “Cooking is something that we’re both really interested in. My friends like to say I love showing off my cooking. The older you become, the less inclined you are to go out. I rather stay home and cook to manage my stress. My girlfriend is supportive about that. (Are you trying to become the perfect husband?) Don’t say it like that, I just love to learn. I got a motorcycle license for the convenience of filming dramas.”

As for the drama’s lead star Mandy, the actress said she is thrilled to hear such good responses from viewers, and is grateful for the opportunity to tackle a difficult role. Mandy doesn’t consider the show’s Sunday time slot to be a disadvantage in ratings, adding that she actually thinks it’s a good thing for dramas to air once a week, to keep up with the thrill of waiting for new episodes once every week.

  1. Brilliant series so far. Weekends cant come quick enough to catch the next couple of episodes… Benjamin much more relaxed and natural comedy than in Line Walker 2 and Mandy is showing her talent. The massive weak link is Jason Chan as usual……

  2. Gotta agree that Jason Chan is the weakest link. I like his vlogs with wife Sarah Song but it’s been a few years and his acting hasn’t improved much. Perhaps he should stick to modeling or hosting?

    Ben is fantastic here and I’m really starting to think that he is much better in comedy than anything else. When he is not doing comedy, his characters come off rather wooden. Mandy is just Mandy here. I like her but unfortunately, still do not feel like she can carry main lead roles. She shined the most as a supporting character. However, it might just be that the main lead characters she gets kinda suck? Just compare her main lead role in TEM with her supporting role as Ha Sze Ka in A Change of Heart. The latter was much more multi-dimensional in my opinion.

  3. Best series I’ve seen on TVB in a while. It’s a new and intriguing plot. Please keep it interesting.
