Vincent Wong and Owen Cheung’s “Al Cappuccino” Premieres Next Week

Picking up the time slot of Death By Zero <殺手> will be the new comedy drama Al Cappuccino <反黑路人甲>, produced by Lam Chi-wah (林志華) and starring Legal Maverick’s <踩過界> duo Vincent Wong (王浩信) and Owen Cheung (張振朗).

Al Cappuccino follows William (Vincent Wong), an actor and thespian nerd who was once part of an Ohio theatre troupe. He decides to move back to Hong Kong permanently for better acting pursuits, but is caught up in a deal with Inspector Rachel Koo (Crystal Fung 馮盈盈), who offers him one very lucrative acting job: to be the leader of a triad. William agrees to be a police informant and takes up the identity of the long-lost male successor of an assassinated triad leader.

This mildly disrupts the plans of Bun (Owen Cheung), an undercover police officer who has already infiltrated the gang successfully. Bun grudgingly agrees to support William to become the leader. Despite his initial dislike for William, Bun eventually grows protective of him, and the two form a tight bond.

A single murder case disrupts all plans however, and the underworld is thrown into chaos. It turns out that acting as the boss versus being the boss are two completely different things.

Al Cappuccino is a comedy in format. The show knows nostalgia well, and pays homage to many classic Hong Kong films in its dialogue. With the combination of a promising script and convincing chemistry between Vincent and Owen, Al Cappuccino is expected to be Hong Kong’s next big drama hit.

Also starring in the drama is Samantha Ko (高海寧), David Chiang (姜大衛), Angel Chiang (蔣家旻), Winki Lai (賴慰玲), Kelly Fu (傅嘉莉), and Kathy Yuen (湯怡) in her first TVB drama.

    So so so excited for this series. All the previews released this week look really good. I think the story line is cool, a different take on the triads/gangs area. And I think Vincent will do really well with this character.

    I recently rewatched Legal Mavericks, so I am pumped to see Vincent and Owen together again. A comedy will play to each other’s strengths and not make the triad staple so stale. The female leads look like an afterthought, hope to be surprised. Would have rather seen Samantha as a more prominent role than Crystal.

    On a side note, can we have Vincent and Ali together on something again? Sigh… So much chemistry and potential…

      @potatochip Agreed about Sam over crystal. I can’t stand her. I saw a preview of what looked like a possible love triangle (square really) between Vincent and the three female leads. I really hope that doesn’t overtake the show and story line because that would be just a waste of Vincent and Owen and what would have been a great storyline.

      This is happening in on-lie game which I didn’t have much hopes for but it’s been much more disappointing than I thought lol. Cyber crimes has the potential to be very interesting but there’s only been like two crimes, most of it has been about that love triangle -_-

        @m0m0 Unfortunately, it looks like she is the lead. I don’t know the other actress, Kathy Yuen. Hope she is decent.
