During the event, Lau Dan revealed that his son, Hawick Lau (劉愷威), has returned to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year. Lau Dan said, “He said he wants to come to the banquet, but he isn’t part of the cast, so he didn’t come. In terms of filming Come Home Love with Hawick, I don’t think he has time, but I will ask.”
Mandy and Jack’s Storyline Grows More Complicated
As the most popular couple in Come Home Love: Lo and Behold, Mandy and Jack’s love arc in the series brought up the recent ratings, which broke through 30 points. Mandy joked, “Income has definitely gotten a lot better with the commercials, but I know we can be even better.” Jack responded, “Agree with the income statement.. I’ve been in the industry for more than 10 years so I’m prepared to hand out red pockets to the staff.”
Jack’s character will continue to mature, as he opens a bar and hopes to close the financial status between Mandy and himself. Meanwhile, a new character portrayed by Strawberry Yeung (楊玉梅) will cause some “ripples” for Jack. Mandy said the addition of Strawberry into the cast won’t affect her screen time, as the show will continue following her love triangle with Jack and Jackson Lai (黎振燁). Mandy praised Jackson, “He’s doing really well [in the show]. Hope the three of us can continue to entertain viewers.”
