Popular Chinese period drama, “Story of Yanxi Palace” (延禧攻略), has captured the hearts of many fans and broke ratings records. The main cast led by local Hong Kong star, Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Qin Lan (秦嵐), Wu Jinyan (吳謹言), Xu Kai (許凱), and Su Qing (蘇青) were in Hong Kong to promote the series and even filmed some variety shows with TVB artists.
TVB has released some interview and BTS clips that will surely make everyone anticipate the upcoming special. The “Yanxi” crew couldn’t have come to Hong Kong without someone imitating their on screen characters.
Forced to feed Consort Bob Lam
In the first BTS clip, the cast is seen filming a “Cookie Beauties – Yanxi Palace Special” with hosts, Bob Lam (林盛斌) dressed as a very ugly consort and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) as a eunuch. It seems Wu Jinyan might be a good chef as Xu Kai compliments her cooking after feeding him. She definitely doesn’t seem like the stuck up actress that is described in the news. Bob of course requests for heartthrob, Xu Kai to feed him, which he happily does and is smiling throughout the ordeal of having Bob molest him. Then best actor, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) scares the Yanxi crew with his “cooking” of local Hong Kong dish, typhoon crab.
Xu Kai: I like them all
In this interview clip, Xu Kai gets put on the spot during the Q&A session, on who is the most vain. Xu Kai gives a very diplomatic answer and says all of “the older sisters are vain because they are all very beautiful. Once we’re about to film, everyone is primping themselves in the mirror. I think I just offended the older sisters.” Then it was Xu Kai’s turn to reveal his question, which asks, “Do you like a type of guy like Xu Kai, who is “fresh meat” (小鮮肉)?” Xu Kai answers, “I actually don’t think I am “fresh meat.” I’ve already passed the [age.] In the future, I don’t want people looking at my work to just praise for me being handsome.” The host, Janis Chan (陳貝兒) is really good as she puts him on the spot again asking him which girl present was his type. Xu Kai, the diplomat that he is, answers, “I like them all. Older sister [Janis Chan], you are setting me up! I like them all.”
In this clip, Wu Jinyan shows off a little bit of Cantonese saying, “Excellent!” (頂呱呱) and “Hong Kong style milk tea.” Then Xu Kai once again explains why he looked cocky and had a long face when he arrived in Hong Kong.
