Michael Miu Withdraws From Upcoming Series with Bosco Wong

Michael Miu (苗僑偉) originally had plans to reunite with good friend Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) in TVB director Chong Wai Kin (莊偉健)’s upcoming series Midas <點金勝手>. Due to an unexpected schedule conflict, Michael is forced to withdraw from production. Bosco expressed disappointment about the news, and joked that he will require Michael to spend a seven-digit sum at his new oyster bar as punishment.

Michael and Bosco became fast friends while filming 2006’s Dicey Business <賭場風雲> and appeared in recently broadcast A Change Of Heart <好心作怪>. The two displayed their strong friendship at recent promotional events and often spoke highly of each other. Earlier, Michael revealed that he was set to star in an upcoming modern drama depicting the lives of today’s working class in a volatile financial market. Additional reports unveiled Bosco’s participation, and many fans are looking forward to the pair’s next collaboration.

Unfortunately, Michael confirmed on August 5 that he will be turning down the opportunity due to a sudden conflict. Michael said, “I have something I must do. I feel really terrible about this.” Asked if his health was a factor in his decision, Michael quickly replied, “No. Everything is fine. I only have to take care of some matters.”

Since TVB had custom-tailored the role for Michael, the company has decided not to look for a replacement and will instead remove his character completely from the script. Set to begin filming at the end of August, Midas will now stars Bosco as a wealthy and successful player in the finance world. Nancy Wu (胡定欣) will play his wife, and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) will play the third party who disrupts Bosco and Nancy’s marriage. The series will also star Ben Wong (黃智賢), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), and Elena Kong (江美儀).

Reporters contacted Bosco for his reaction. Bosco lamented at Michael’s withdrawal, but quickly came up with ideas of punishment. “I definitely feel disappointed! I miss him so much. I will make him treat me to 30 meals. Also, he will have to spend at least a seven-digit sum at my restaurant when it opens!”

    I’m excited for the Bosco and Nancy pairing.

    I wonder if the matters that Michael has to take care of involves his daughter? I’m just thinking of the headline from a few days ago about his daughter’s “wild ways” lol

      Kate is the third wheel between Bosco and Nancy?

      I’m on the same page with you about Michael taking time off to urgently attend to his daughter after the report come out. If it’s about him filming something else or business related, he wouldn’t be this secretive.

    Hmm, too bad that MM had to withdraw – although I thought he only filmed one drama per year? I wonder if the original script also had a love triangle or if either Nancy or Kate were supposed to pair of with MM instead?

        TY!

        Interesting. I thought maybe Kate or Nancy could have been an interesting pairing with MM.

        well, I think Kate was not suppose to be in this serie. with Micheal withdrawal, they rewrite the cript a bit, and that is where Kate comes from.
        Of course this is just my opinion – but Kate joins the cast of this serie is kind of suprise for me, because at the moment she is filming a movie in Taiwan, and her plan of the second half of the year was to focus on movie
        but then, bammmm, she will film another drama

    Shame that Michael Miu pulled out. He and Bosco have really good chemistry in modern series.

    On another note, I used to hesitate to watch Chinese series and remain loyal to TVB. But over the past few years, recent disappointments with TVB, I’m a convert. I’ll only be selective with what I watch on TVB. Their production of periods and wuxia drama look so pitiful compared to Chinese production. But modern drama with Michael Miu and Bosco Wong will get my initial attention to watch.

    I was also really excited to see another Michael and Bosco collaboration but I think Bosco can lead this just fine. With the addition of the rest of the casts it seems great so far, looking forward to seeing this.

    Since we weren’t able to see Bosco and Nancy’s reunion in the sequel to Triumph In The Skies seems like we’ll be seeing them in this one which makes up for it. All of the main cast are one of TVB’s finest in my opinion, I’m excited for this production.
