TVB series, Flying Tigers <飛虎> feature young, muscular actors such as Him Law, Vincent Wong Ho Shun, and Mr. Hong Kong winners, Benjamin Yuen Wai Ho and William Chak. The men were used to revealing their muscular torsos and walking around in tight briefs was not even a problem!
In a scene in Flying Tigers, Him Law had just joined the Police Department’s Special Duties Unit (nicknamed Flying Tigers Unit). He was bullied by other members in the unit. After taking a shower in the locker room, Him complained to his colleague, Vincent Wong. Originally, interviews were not allowed on the set. After reporters repeatedly asked Him and Vincent, the actors agreed to re-enact the shower scene to benefit fans!
To achieve increased exposure, it is inevitable for artists to reveal a bit of themselves. Actresses need to reveal their cleavage, while actors show their muscles. With his muscular 40-inch chest, 26-year-old Him Law rose to popularity after Suspects in Love <搜下留情>. Him became extremely popular among the gay male community and received countless job offers. Perhaps he was more protective of overexposing his body after achieving fame, Him wore two sets of briefs and a towel while filming a shower scene in Flying Tigers. Him was very careful not to expose too much of his lower body, but he generously revealed his upper torso. Unfortunately, due to the dragging weight of the wet towel, the shape of his butt and one inch of Him’s butt crease were revealed!
Although Joe Ma Tak Chung and Jessica Hsuan were the leading cast in Flying Tigers, Him Law and rumored girlfriend, Mandy Wong Chi Man, dominate significant screen time. An insider commented on the 13-episode series, “Taking inspiration from American television dramas, Flying Tigers will air only one episode each week. Of course the Producer wanted to generate viewer discussion in each episode, so a shower scene was added for Him!”
Although Him was hard-working and possessed a good figure, he was very reluctant in revealing his butt onscreen. At the praying ceremony last week, he said, “There is a butt-revealing scene, but I will not be revealing my butt crease. My waist size is only twenty-eight inches and my butt is quite round. If I reveal a little bit below my waist to show the top of my butt, that should be okay!”
Him filmed the shower scene with zero preparation. On the other hand, Vincent Wong performed one hundred push-ups to increase the size of his muscles. Vincent even did weight lifting exercises to achieve the optimal figure prior to filming Flying Tigers. Vincent said, “Two months ago, the Producer asked me to trim my figure down to zero fat. I promised to try! Afterwards, I enlisted the help of a fitness trainer for a diet plan to attain the ideal figure. I have a 42-inch chest now, but of course Him has a better-looking body!”
On the day of the reporters’ visit, Benjamin Yuen was wearing Nike Pro Combat briefs, which clung to his body snugly. Benjamin won the title of Mr. Hong Kong in 2007 and has maintained his muscular figure since then.
