Starring Vincent Wong (王浩信), Mat Yeung (楊明), Philip Ng (伍允龍), and Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), the TVB anniversary drama Fist Fight <兄弟> dropped its first teaser trailer on September 25th. Fist Fight will premiere on November 12, leaving just enough time for it to compete at the 2018 TVB Anniversary Awards.
“It’s actually my first time seeing this [trailer],” said Vincent at the TVB POWER event. “Actually, the trailer does a pretty good job at displaying the show’s element. The show talks about what happened before and after the Hong Kong handover, and the Internet age.”
Fist Fight has been confirmed to be the year’s anniversary drama. Though he’s the drama’s lead actor, he actually doesn’t feel any pressure. “In fact, I really want to use this opportunity to convince viewers to give more support to local Hong Kong dramas. We have a lot of choices now, and if we don’t do better, we cannot stay competitive. We have to keep on working hard.”
Vincent, who plays an Internet celebrity on the show, was asked if starring in an anniversary drama would help his chances on winning TV king. He said, “I don’t know, and I don’t want to think about it. What I really want is for more feedback from viewers once the show gets to the streets. This was a complicated role to portray.”
Fist Fight is Vincent’s only television drama for 2018. He said, “A lot of blood was spilled for this show. What I want more than anything is to win Best Drama.”
In addition to Hong Kong, Fist Fight was also shot in the Philippines and England. Rebecca Zhu, who plays a member of the Interpol, shared, “It’s definitely an action series, but I didn’t have as many fight scenes as the male leads. I play as a member of an Interpol. Most of my action scenes involved gun shoots.”
During film, Rebecca was inspired by her costar Philip Ng to keep fit with a diet. She shared that Philip has a habit of eating chicken breasts to maintain his figure. “I took his advice, but ended up getting fatter! Fried chicken won’t work—it has to be boiled!”
Kaman Kong (江嘉敏), Tiffany Lau (劉穎璇), Shek Sau (石修), and Gilbert Lam (林韋辰) also star in the drama.
