The sequel for popular TVB drama, The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>, held its costume fitting yesterday. Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Him Law (羅仲謙), Ben Wong (黃智賢), and Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) return in the sequel. Joining the cast is the long-awaited return of Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), along with Koo Ming Wah (古明華), Louisa So (蘇玉華), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), Tracy Chu, and Crystal Li (李雪瑩).

Lawrence Praises Kenneth and Tavia

Lawrence’s portrayal as Dr. Paul Ching in Healing Hands <妙手仁心> left a deep impression upon viewers after more than a decade of its broadcast. TVB sought him out eagerly to star in The Hippocratic Crush 2  after a 8-year absence from the station, and Lawrence agreed to the project not for money, but rather due to his roots with the company. Portraying a pathologist in The Hippocratic Crush 2, Lawrence stated that he will be performing a surgery on Kenneth’s character but declined to reveal the details of the type of illness.

Lawrence already noticed Kenneth’s past acting performances when he was only a newcomer and praised his talent. Lawrence also praised that Tavia has grown more stunning over the years, compared to when she had first entered the industry.

Kenneth and Tavia’s Love Continues

Kenneth and Tavia will portray a married couple in The Hippocratic Crush 2. Tavia said, “It’s great that the characters’ love story can be continued in the sequel.” Kenneth also noted that he did not feel any pressure working together with Tavia again after she won TVB Best Actress.

Tavia and Him Teased

Due to Tavia and Him’s real-life romance, the pair was the focus of media attention at the costume fitting. Kenneth joked that he will not be embarrassed portraying Tavia’s husband in the drama and will kiss her as required by the script.

Him revealed that he will be in love triangle with Eliza Sam and Crystal Li in The Hippocratic Crush 2. Asked if he was very excited since the drama featured many beautiful ladies, Him rushed to responded, “No, I really did not feel any special excitement because of this. In the last series, I didn’t end up with anyone, so this time I will be paired with two women. Poon Ka Tak (潘嘉德) told me, ‘You have to be a bit patient. They are both newcomers.'” Eliza quickly interrupted and said, “I have improved compared to last time!”

Will Him require Tavia’s permission when filming the romantic scenes? “I’ll discuss with my management company, Filmko. There are limits to television explicitness.” Tavia also brushed off any potential rumors that may result from Him’s romantic pairing, “We’ll treat it as promotion.”

For the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday, Tavia will be performing in the United States. Tavia does not mind visiting Him and the Law family at their home for the holidays, as she has already met Him’s mother from past visits.

Candy Chang Absent 

Despite appearing in The Hippocratic Crush, Candy Chang (張慧雯) was not at the costume fitting yesterday.  Asked if she was omitted from the sequel due to Candy’s implication in a marijuana possession case, producer Poon Ka Tak (潘嘉德) explained, “The case has not ended yet, so we do not know how to arrange it. What if she has to go to court during filming? When she’s all done, we will make arrangements for her to come back.”

      The cast looks great for this sequel although I have reservations of having Tracy Chu pair up with Lawrence which will likely result in quite a bit of screen time for her. Not sure how she’ll perform as it will be her first series.

      Lawrence hasn’t aged at all and I like the addition of Crystal Li as I quite liked her in GJ2.

      Is Tracy Chu mixed? She doesn’t look like a Chinese in the picture above. Also what is Louisa So’s character in The Hippocratic Crush 2?

      i am really excited about the sequel but with the addition of that many characters, i am so concerned that the focus will be away from tavia and kenneth which will make me very sad and i do not want to end up using the fast forward button.

      *cross fingers*

      Wasn’t aware Louisa So is filming series again. I assume she will be paired with Lawrence. I’m actually more interested in the series now with her addition.

      Louisa is playing a volunteer at the hospital I believe with a chronic medical condition and she is paired with Lawrence.

      I quite liked Him and Candy’s pairing in the first one its a pity it won’t happen, love triangles are the worst they’re almost always predictable and not that creative

      Very excited for YuTao!!! Tavia is stunning while Kenneth is charming! How SWEET!!! Hopefully there’s a lot screening time for YuTao’s romance, don’t disappoint the audience who has been rooted for On Call sequel!!!

      I’m a little disappointed tho’ that Louisa will not have romantic line with Lawrence which may make her role smaller in this series as compared to the younger generation esp Eliza. GRrrrrrrr!

        I know, I thought Lawrence was gonna cure tavia. Now he’s here to save Kenneth instead? And the pathologist performs the surgery, not the surgeon? I thought the pathologist will examine the biopsy or whatever.

        Tavia’s character had a chronic illness, while Kenneth’s character seemed to have an accident/fatal incident which will cause him to need medical attention..both cases are different from each other.

        Dr. House…very funny.

      Btw, I laughed when I first read Lawrence praise tavia for becoming more stunning through the yrs. I thought he was being facetious b/c of her face changes. 😀

        Josie,
        Lawrence was asked specifically what he thought of Tavia’s physical changes over the years, in which he graciously said that she has become more beautiful.

        Yeah, i’ve noticed he has gained some weight by looking at his appearances in his recent events. Dont know if its his haircut/hairstyle that is making his face rounder and wider, but it is noticable that he has baby fat around the chin and neck area lol. Still looks quite dashing though I must say- but his costume fitting above makes him look like a schoolboy hahaha
