With the depressed performance of recent productions in TVB, Slow Boat Home <情越海岸線> shows potential in recovering the dismal ratings on the prime time slot. In its first week of broadcast, it garnered good viewership with average ratings at 26 to 27 points.
Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Selena Li (李詩韻), Cilla Kung (樂瞳) promoted the series at a mall promotion earlier this week. They mingled with the audiences and were happily playing games competing with one another. In one of the games, Ruco and Raymond were sharing a bun together and when they were about to finish the bun they nearly kissed!
Selena, Cilla, Oceane Zhu (朱璇), Lee Yee Man (李綺雯) and Kibby Lau (劉俐) were spotted wearing either shorts or short skirts to flaunt their long slender legs, but Oceane stole the limelight with a translucent top and her bubbly personality. When playing games, Oceane put her heart in winning the games; she took off Ruco’s glasses and passed it to Kibby, causing Ruco to look fanatically for his glasses after the games.
Selena revealed that she was watching the show with her sister and domestic helper. When her kissing scene with Ruco came onscreen, she felt very embarrassed. “I immediately asked the helper to go and pour a glass of fruit juice. My sister also agreed that [the kissing scene was] very passionate.” Having acted in more than 20 dramas, Selena has only done a few kissing scenes. Is she liberal in such scenes? Selena replied, “It has to depend on who is the actor. If it’s Ruco or Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), they take good care of their acting partners well.”
When asked if she felt embarrassed acting as a couple with her ex-boyfriend Patrick Tang (鄧健泓) in Slow Boat Home, Selena said, “The producer has asked about my feelings. As a professional actress, it doesn’t matter who is your co-star. We are not at loggerheads; we do have some chemistry and the feeling is alright.” Asked if there is any kissing scene? “No, the kissing scene with Ruco is the most passionate.”
Ratings for the drama have been promising so far. Ruco said with excitement, “We are actors and if no one watches the show, we also would not be happy.” He added that he hopes to have the opportunity to go mainland China to act.
