Joey Meng (萬綺雯) and Johnson Lee (李思捷) became good friends after starring as bickering detectives in Officer Geomancer <八卦神探>. Despite denying romantic rumors that arose between them while filming the drama, Joey experienced feelings of first love due to the sweet and gratifying script.
Like Brother and Sister
Joey is four years older than Johnson, but he sees her as a little sister due to her youthful charm and personality. Johnson praised Joey’s genuine kindness, “She has a heart of gold and always puts everyone else’s needs before her own.”
Although Johnson is always perceived to be proud and aloof, Joey argued that Johnson is actually quite humorous. “He’s not cool! He just puts up a front! Maybe he puts on a defensive barrier to protect himself against certain people. He is actually like a silly kid. He’s fun to be around and knows how to take care of the people around him.”
Fulfilling Childhood Dreams
Filming Officer Geomancer allowed them to fulfill their childhood dreams of being cops. Johnson stated, “After acting for so many years, I really wanted to play a police role. I was very excited and thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of solving cases.”
Joey said,“When I was a child, I wanted to be a policewoman. In high school, I wanted to be a stewardess. In the end, I joined the entertainment industry instead.”
With a background in Muay Thai boxing, Johnson was quite impressive in his action scenes. However, Joey said she would rather avoid scenes that required intense physical movements. “During filming, I cracked three ribs. So I try not to take part in too many fight scenes.”
