Produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures, the Chinese-Hong Kong co-production television drama series White War <戰毒> premiered on Hong Kong’s ViuTV on July 9, 2020. It stars Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), and Kenny Kwan (關智斌) as three narcotics police officers who find that they must choose between brotherhood and their conscience to prevent a drug lord from rising in power.
It features a special guest appearance by three-time TV King Gallen Lo (羅嘉良), who plays the drug lord Chan Kin. Gallen spent six days shooting with Ron and Bosco.
“It was a very fun six days,” said Gallen. “Frankly, I wanted more. It’s a lot more versatile to play a villain, but I personally prefer playing characters who are morally ambiguous!”
Though both former TVB actors—and both had worked for the station at around the same time—White War is Gallen and Bosco’s first collaboration. Despite being from different generations, Gallen and Bosco had a blast working together. There were no generational gaps whatsoever.
Gallen said he’s used to working with the younger generation. “Golden Faith <流金歲月> was my first drama with Ron. I remember going to Thailand together and having a lot of fun. This time, Bosco said he’ll treat me a dinner at his restaurant in Hong Kong.”
White War also stars Chrissie Chau (周秀娜) and Karena Ng (吳千語).
