Fans are tuning in to Shaw Brothers’ web drama Flying Tiger <飛虎之潛行極戰>, which had its double premiere on Hong Kong’s myTV SUPER and China’s Youku on Friday. The action television drama about a team of Special Duties Unit paramilitary officers stars some of Hong Kong’s favorite macho men, including Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Eddie Cheung (張兆輝), and Michael Wong (王敏德). Semi-retired actress Eugina Lau (劉美娟) makes a return to star as Michael Miu’s wife. Flying Tigers also stars Christine Ng (伍詠薇) and Michelle Saram (鄭雪兒), who haven’t made television appearances in a while.
The drama’s been catching attention in the web sphere since its premiere. Ron’s brave action stunt in episode 2, which featured him jumping down from a bridge, became a hot topic, as it was known that Ron did not ask for a stunt double and did the entire sequence himself.
Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) has also been catching attention with his psychotic appearance on the show—the actor, known for playing youthful roles, plays a villain who considers murdering humans as a hobby.
