The various story arcs in Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> were designed by the drama’s producers to reflect trends in modern love relationships. Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Elena Kong (江美儀) portray a pair of “friends with benefits” who turn to each other for sex in a no-strings-attached arrangement.

After divorcing pilot Tony (Patrick Dunn 鄧梓峰) and ending her loveless marriage, flight attendant (Elena Kong) feels lonely and even attends a male escort venue. Roy (Kenneth Ma) dates two women at the same time, but he prefers the convenience of a purely physical relationship. Finding Heather to be a compatible friend, Roy understands her physical needs and agrees that they should “have a good time” together in bed. Both are not prepared to ultimately fall in love.

Kenneth Said Relationship is Realistic

Triumph in the Skies 2 Elena Kong Kenneth MaKenneth and Elena thought of ways to make their characters in Triumph in the Skies 2 more realistic, especially the details leading up to their four bed scenes.  Kenneth said, “We have to persuade ourselves first before we can film them!” They magnified Heather’s understanding personality and Roy’s youthful energy.

Kenneth was excited by Roy’s “friends with benefits” story arc in Triumph in the Skies 2. “I was very immersed in my character. I am afraid to do this in real life, so I can only do this in the series!” He believes the relationship is very realistic, “A classic male archetype who still lives with his family in adulthood and is cared by others. This type of man needs the woman to make decisions, while he is able to satisfy her passion!”

Elena Surprised by Fan Sentiments

Elena was initially heavily criticized by viewers as looking too mature to play Kenneth’s lover. She is equally bewildered by changes in recent fan sentiments. “Earlier, they scolded me every day, saying that we were incompatible. But lately, they said that they want to watch our storyline. I don’t know what happened, but I hope everyone will share their opinions after watching!”

Triumph in the Skies 2 has soared to the top spot as the series with the highest ratings year-to-date, followed by Inbound Troubles <老表,你好嘢!>, Friendly Fire <法網狙擊> Sergeant Tabloid <女警愛作戰> and A Great Way to Care 2 <仁心解碼Ⅱ>. TVB also announced that they will be changing the guidelines in how program ratings will be determined, which may have a positive effect on dramas to be broadcast later this year.

    “Friends with benefits” may sound great in concept, but difficult to maintain long term. Probably harder for a woman to maintain such an arrangement than a man.

    Kenneth seems to be referring to himself in this quote: “A classic male archetype who still lives with his family in adulthood and is cared by others. This type of man needs the woman to make decisions, while he is able to satisfy her passion!” So Kenneth can offer his youth and energy, while he is interested in older women to take care of him.

      Friends with benefits are not supposed to be maintained long-term. The purpose of the relationship is to be non-commital and to merely satisfy each other’s lust while waiting for the “right person” to appear. I’d think that it’s unhealthy to maintain a non-commital relationship for a long time.

      And yes, that description does really sound like him.

    HAHHAHA.

    Seems like TVB is doing everything it takes to artificially boost its ratings, or just faking it to seem like the drama is successful, when in reality it was a disaster. TITS 2 is, IMO (from a person who watched TITS 1 many times, and love it), a disappointment so far. They know too well that TITS 2 will be a disappointment once it finishes up. They are also very afraid of HKTV coming to life once their license is granted!

    Yeah, no. I’m sorry but I don’t believe a man who can’t even make his own decisions or take care of himself, is able to satisfy a woman’s passion! LMAO.

    Seriously? People thought she was too old to play Kenneth’s lover? They’re about the same age irl. I’m sick of the asian media making it the norm for 40+ yo men to be paired with women in their twenties.

    Other than the age thing, I think viewers probably didn’t want Elena’s cheating on her husband. They’re probably more receptive now that they know Kenneth isn’t breaking up a marriage.

    If Elena is too old for Kenneth, the difference between Elena and Damian Lau was much bigger!

    No doubt Elena’s acting is not bad at all. Eventhough she’s only a few years older than Kenneth, I honestly think she looks much older than him. Probably because he still looks quite boyish in certain ways. Therefore, pairing them looks kind of weird. But, Charmaine Sheh’s pairing with Raymond Lam were still okay eventhough she’s a few years older than Raymond.

    Honestly, I don’t even notice him in the series anymore. His character contribute little to none to the plot compared to the other cast.

    I think Elena is just 2 years older than Kenneth. What is wrong with TVB nowadays or those people who commented on the age issue between the two?

    TVB have been frequently pairing guys that are 10 to 20 over years older than the ladies. Father and daugther? and no one complain? Are we getting backward?

    Having watch most of the interviews on Kenneth, he is indeed such a person at heart (pervert at heart). One lucky fella that get a chance to be himself in this role.

      kenneth’s effective performance as the two timer roy caught the eyes of jackie chan and many other filmmakers who decided to promote kenneth as the next breakout movie star. in the end kenneth choose jackie chan’s movie where he will be a cool lawyer who has 7 girls surround him and the lead actress will be an award winning and box office actress from mainland. eric tsang and irene wan and jackie himself will guest star in kenneth’s romantic comedy movie. jackie really think highly of kenneth in triumph2 and his paycheck is 3 million as said bu newspaper today!

        Jackie Chan? Wow! A combination of an open secret actual pervert and a pervert at heart! Nice GO! However, I hope Jackie won’t make Kenneth like him (actual pervert) although I felt it will highly likely be cos Kenneth is already one at heart. LOL.

        TVB won’t be able to take him anymore if all goes well and if I’m Kenneth I may as well hit the big screen! And moreover, TVB is all on newbies and the retired or semi-retired old timers nowadays so it does not really matter much in the end. Many are still in line hoping for TVB to promote them (newbies and the 2nd liners), so I guess if Kenneth does go is a blessing to another.
