Artistes Vincent Wong 王浩信, Natalie Tong 唐詩詠, Kelley Cheung 張曦雯, Crystal Fung 馮盈盈, Pinky Cheung 張文慈 and co. attended a promotional event for anniversary drama The Man Who Kills Troubles 解決師. A year since his last drama was released, Vincent expressed he felt very grateful that he was able to participate in an anniversary series, and hoped the new series would spread positive energy. He said, “I’m really looking forward to the broadcast myself. The cast and crew put a lot of effort into it this time, and working with Natalie created new sparks as well.” Natalie continued, saying, “The Man Who Kills Troubles and Big White Duel 白色強人 belong to different genres, and it’s been a few years since I last worked with Vincent, so before filming, I had to put some thought into how we can give viewers something different. At the beginning of the drama, we don’t like each other.”

Asked if there were any intimate scenes since the two will be playing lovers, Natalie laughed, saying there were none at all. “Is it hard to imagine? Our relationship is very complicated, doesn’t allow for intimacy, and the process takes over 10 episodes. My role is a reserved music teacher with connections.” Since My Unfair Lady 不懂撒嬌的女人, this is the first time Vincent and Natalie have collaborated again, and coincidentally, the production is an anniversary drama. Asked if this was paving the way to win the TV King and TV Queen awards respectively, Natalie expressed, “I haven’t thought about it much; it’s great just to get audience support.” Vincent added, “After the drama starts airing, we’ll gauge the viewers’ reaction, and then we’ll do more publicity work.”

Asked if there was any pressure from airing right after Barrack O’Karma 金宵大廈, which has been praised as a “God drama”, Vincent laughed and hoped that the drama would succeed Barrack O’Karma’s momentum as well, and that viewers would show their support.

Other questions Vincent responded to:
Q: The new drama has police themes, do you think this is not a suitable time to broadcast it?
A: This drama has many different elements: I’m playing two characters, there are teachers and “solvers”, and what we filmed in Australia was a darker world, where I would receive orders from and work for crime gangs.
Q: So do you think the storyline will be sensitive?
A: I’ll do my best as an actor, and leave the rest to the company.
