Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and Joe Chan’s (陳維冠) Aerobic Girls <舞室保衛戰> held its official blessing ceremony today and the entire cast and crew showed up in high spirits. The full cast line up includes Carmen Lee (李若彤), Rachel Lee (李麗珍), Elvina Kong (江欣燕), Flora Chan (陳慧珊), Angie Cheong (張慧儀), Gloria Yip (葉蘊儀), Fennie Yuen (袁潔瑩), Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Joe Tay (鄭敬基), and Lawrence Cheng (鄭丹瑞). The girls who will play the younger versions of the actresses wore 80s aerobics gear in colorful spandex to create a lively atmosphere.
Since the lead actresses are in their forties, it was quite noticeable that most of them had heavy face makeup on. Although years have passed since several of the leads have last acted onscreen, the physical changes were not significant. Only Gloria seemed to have gained a bit of weight while Fennie and Carmen were thinner, perhaps because the latter has been dealing with her depression and mood disorders.
Elvina looked slightly tired despite trying her best to put on a smile. Because of the announcement of her divorce with her husband of 12 years, it may take a little longer for Elvina’s spirits to resume. Weariness aside, Elvina wore a pink and green spandex set. She also attempted to maintain a positive attitude and imitated her role in the series, “I have to protect my mom’s dancing studio! A woman is just as strong by herself; she doesn’t need a man by her side!”
The biggest surprise was when they revealed that comedy king David Lo (盧大偉) will also be participating in the drama. David took part in the popular Chinese New Years film, 72 Tenants of Prosperity <七十二家租客>, and with his return to TVB, it will surely give the audience members a feeling of nostalgia.
Need To Lose Weight?
Besides Gloria, who has gained a little weight over the years, Kandy Wong (糖妹), who will be playing Gloria’s younger self in Aerobic Girls, was subject to criticism about her weight. More specifically, netizens pointed out that Kandy’s thighs were too beefy. When she was standing beside the rest of the younger actresses in tights, it was noticeable that her thighs were bigger in comparison.
