Supernatural drama The Exorcist’s 2nd Meter <降魔的2.0> aired its finale on June 5. With the fate of Hubert Wu‘s (胡鴻鈞) character and the open ending left between Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Mandy Wong‘s (黃智雯) relationship, the cast hopes that a third installment will give proper closure.
As his character’s feelings fluctuated between Mandy and Moon Lau (劉佩玥), Kenneth offered his own input, “It’s really hard to choose. The director actually left it open-ended and doesn’t fully explain the future of our characters.” When asked if his character is considered to be a player, Kenneth explained, “It’s a difficult situation. He feels guilty for causing Moon’s death, but on the other hand, he has liked Mandy since the beginning.”
In real life, Kenneth has never cheated in a relationship. “I’m really stupid–they’ll be able to tell right away if I lie. I also don’t have enough time for two girls.”
Chiming in and saying that she cannot focus on two men at once, Mandy avoids complicated love triangles. She never had to fight for her boyfriend, “If someone decides to fight with me, I will chose to give up first. I feel that it is pointless if you have to fight for him.”
Although Mandy’s screen-time is somewhat limited considering she is the female lead, she impressed viewers with her acting skills in the scene when she lends her body to Moon’s character to fulfill her dream of having a date with Kenneth. Mandy explained, “I talk to Moon regularly, so I’ve noticed some of her little habits and they naturally came out in my acting. As her character is very cute, it wasn’t hard to pretend to be her.” Asked about her limited screen time in the drama, Mandy replied, “I don’t feel that I have less screen time. The storyline is the most important, so whatever makes sense works with me.”
Both Kenneth and Mandy hope that there will be a third installment to the series, with the actor saying, “Mandy’s schedule is the most [busy]–if she has free time, then we can start filming!” Mandy interjected, “This definitely isn’t the case! What’s most important is that the audience likes the drama and we can have the original cast on board.”
