Produced by Poon Ka Tak (潘嘉德), TVB’s upcoming detective drama Problem-Solving Expert <拆局專家> held its costume fitting press conference yesterday. The drama stars Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), and Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) as a team of crisis experts and detectives.

Problem-Solving Expert is Chin Ka Lok’s first drama in two years, as well as Mandy’s first drama as the first lead actress.

Portraying a couple in the series, Chin Ka Lok joked that his partners are getting younger by the year. He said he was just following Michael Miu’s (苗僑偉) footsteps, and shared that he may have a kissing scene with Mandy. “How embarrassing for Mandy!” he joked.

As the drama’s female lead, Mandy will have many action scenes and car racing stunts. Although they will not play an intimate couple, Mandy shared that she will have a scene in which she will share a bath with Chin Ka Lok. Asked if she will expose her back on camera, Mandy said, “I don’t know, but I filmed a scene like this before.”

LuLu Kai (蓋世寶), a host for children’s programs, will also be starring in the series. In regards to her children’s program After School <放學ICU> coming to an end after a 10-year run, LuLu said she misses the show but is not unhappy about it. She admitted that the program’s end has affected her income and expressed that she will grasp onto any opportunity for jobs.

Nathan Ngai (魏焌皓), who was accused by ex-girlfriend Gloria Wong (黃榕) to be a cheater and a player, said he will not answer any more questions about the scandal. “The only thing I will say is that I didn’t do anything that she claimed I did.” Regarding other female celebrities who admitted that they were pursued by Nathan, he said, “I don’t mind being the topic of discussion, but please don’t drag others into it.”

      What do you expect? Any progressive actor would leave TVB.

      Would rather watch these two lead than the likes of Myolie/Linda/Kate and Moses/Raymond Lam/Kenneth Ma. At the very least they’re good actors and the new pairing may offer something fresh to the screen. Just be glad it’s not another Linda/Ruco, Kate/Ron, Kate/Bosco, Kenneth/Tavia pairing.

        How is an actress/actor suppose to be good if they are not given an opportunity to do so?

      I don’t think TVB is running low on actors /actresses. If anything, it’s a good strategic move to bring fresh faces on screen. Think about it, using the same group of fadans and siu sangs, swapping them in pairings,is getting stale.

        Or maybe there’s a simpler and more plausible answer…she grew her hair longer. People are so quick to jump to the ps conclusion these days.

        Not necessary PS, could be a different way of applying makeup to give her a tougher, edgier look.

    Super boring cast. Tvb is really scraping the bottom of the barrel with these bunch of leads esp the male lead. Couple of yrs ago this guy won’t even make it to third or fourth or fifth supporting actor.

      Most great TVB actors were once 3rd, 4th, 5th line actors. Let’s watch before judging.

        hahaha yeah sure but Chin Kar Lok won’t be one of them. He was awful and the reason why i stopped watching that divas-whatever drama he was in.

    Mandy looks different here, as in a good different. Looking forward to this, at least it’s a refreshing cast rather than the same old same old.

    I don’t like watching Mandy Wong. She looks so boring and dull. Rebecca and Grace might just outshine her.
