Gary Tang’s TV Drama “The Hiddens” Premieres September 22

Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Michael Tao (陶大宇), Jessica Hsuan (宣萱), William So (蘇永康) and more attended a press conference on Wednesday to promote their upcoming drama The Hiddens <隱世者們>, which will be coming to TVB’s myTV SUPER streaming service on September 22.

Created by Gary Tang (鄧特希), The Hiddens brings back the cast from TVB’s popular legal series File of Justice <壹號皇庭> in a new crime thriller. It centers on an undercover agent (Lawrence Ng) who is recruited to perform dangerous missions that are deemed to risky for the agency to do on its own.

On playing the role of a secret agent, Lawrence said, “I had to fight a lot! I told producer Gary Tang to not treat me like Donnie Yen (甄子丹)! Fight all ten at once!” (How did you cope?) “I barely managed! Having to stay up to film overnight was difficult because I got used to waking up early and sleeping early. And I had to constantly fight.” (Any injuries?) “Thankfully none! I did my warm-ups.”

Jessica Hsuan’s Kiss? Michael Tao: “It was Great”

Though Jessica and Michael are close friends, and have played a couple more than once, Jessica said her kissing scene with Michael in The Hiddens was rather awkward.

“I took the initiative to kiss him this time,” said Jessica. “I rarely get to play characters like this. It felt kind of awkward, but Michael and I are great partners. I wasn’t worried.” (How intense was your kiss?) “Definitely not light pecks! But it wasn’t as intense as I originally thought.”

Michael laughed at Jessica’s response and said, “We’ve kissed many times before, but this was definitely the best one. It was actually comfortable! Maybe it’s because the director was a rookie and felt embarrassed to ask us to kiss again.” (You want to kiss her again?) “I wouldn’t mind!”

Asking if Michael finds women who take initiatives to be more attractive, he smiled and said, “It really depends! But when we’re in the mood, everything is attractive!” (Any happy news to announce?) “When it happens, you can bet on it!” (Dating?) “I do have female friends.” (Living together?) “I’m already old. It doesn’t matter! As long as everyone is happy. I think it’s time for me to meet some new friends anyways. Being single can be quite sad.”

Nat Chan (陳百祥), who makes a guest appearance in the series, said he never got the chance to see Gary Tang while he was filming the show. He joked, “He’s actually the guy who’s hidden!”

The Hiddens will also be premiering on Malaysia’s Astro Wah Lai Toi on September 22.

  1. The trailer looks promising though there seem to be quite a number of scenes of unfamiliar faces. Lawrence, Michael, William and Felix Lok, they just need to add Bobby to complete the reunion.

    1. @bearbear Yes, there will be quite a few unfamiliar faces, as this is technically a Malaysian series done in collaboration with HK — in addition to the HK artists, there are quite a few Malaysian and Japanese artists in the series as well.

      Not surprised that TVB bought the broadcasting rights to the series, with the whole FOJ tie-in and all (though I agree that the ‘reunion’ is incomplete without Bobby!). Besides, it seems like alot of audiences are already mistaking this series for a TVB production anyway, so if the series does well, they can just reap the benefits. I will likely watch this series as well, since it sounds way more interesting than most of TVB’s own productions that they’ve churned out in recent years, plus the cast is stellar!

  2. Nice i’ll be busy for the next couple of weeks… Law Dis-order and The Hidden i’m definitely tuning in for it! Keep bringing these seniors and veteran and viewers will tune in!

    1. Seniors and veterans = Automatically good acting/drama?? Definitely not. Both has been a big disappointment for me so far (tho I am a die hard fan of these actors). Over-acting and bad script/plot all around! ;-(
