After winning the Most Improved Actor award last year, Oscar Leung’s (梁烈唯) popularity has been soaring and he is continuously offered new jobs. His latest project is White Man <愛神搭錯線>, a short four-episode film. Part one was officially released on June 29 on TVB J2. Cast members include Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠), Nathan Ngai (魏焌皓), and Titan Huang (黃泰安).

Synopsis

Oscar plays Steve, a renowned furniture designer, who frequently works in Asia and Europe. Steve is a hardworking man who never stays in one place and always sets high standards for himself and those around him. Despite his overtly serious nature, he manages to keep an online relationship with Grace (Christine). The pair, despite having been dating online for three years, has not met up in real life. However, their fate intertwines when they both coincidentally fly to Taipei and agree to finally see each other.

Thus Steve sits at a pub and patiently waits for Grace’s arrival. But the couple’s plans do not run smoothly when Taiwan’s supposed “cupid”, Peter Qiu (Titan), appears and tells Steve that he is not meant to be with Grace. Believing his words, Steve meets Lai Sze (Vivien) and begins a friendly conversation with her. When Grace finally shows up at the pub and cannot find Steve, Peter realizes his mistakes and quickly calls Ah Dic (Nathan) for help in patching back the couple.

    I liked his acting in Tiger Cubs and but not in Friendly Fire where I felt he overacted in certain scenes. He was angry that the villain had raped Samantha Ko’s character but his eyes were too wild and crazy in some instances.

    I remember reading an article in Jaynestars where Oscar shared that when he first entered showbiz, he tasted success immediately, and success got into his head, he became too arrogant and offended others, thus he was sidelined until recently he got into the spot light again.

    I think he is a talented actor and I hope that since he has been given a second chance, he remains humble and hone his craft. Hopefully he has learnt his lessons from last time so that he can do better this time.

        Valentine’s is also known as White Day. Cupid = White man?

        Anyone want to confirm my guess?
