To promote their new crime drama series Tomorrow is Another Day <再戰明天>, which premiered on October 6, Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) performed fast-roping and tug-of-war in front of the Correctional Services Department Staff Training Institute in Stanley.
The cast, including Tracy Chu (朱千雪) and Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎), were dressed in officer uniforms and played games with Pal Sinn (單立文), who was dressed as an inmate. Main leads Lawrence and Kate also did a fast-rope performance and climbed five storeys.
Due to his safety gear, Lawrence’s bulge was very apparent and attention-grabbing while he did his performance. Lawrence said he did not realize his wardrobe malfunction and said he did not feel embarrassed.
According to a Jayne Stars report, he said, “It’s for protection! I’m bounded in ropes. It’s like doing wire-work.”
Asked if the ropes had hurt his sensitive area, Lawrence said, “It doesn’t hurt, but when I’m filming something I would slip in an extra padding for protection."
On speaking about Lawrence moving away from his well-received doctor image, he admitted, “My previous image was sophisticated and handsome. Now, as a correctional services officer, I have to deal with many action scenes. Before I started filming, I went to the gym, swam, and jogged a lot to train my stamina. Filming went really smoothly.”
Kate expressed that she does not often do aerobic exercises. When she was asked to run a few flight of stairs, her legs felt weak. “When I heard that I would have to walk ten flights of stairs yesterday, I immediately said I’m going to bring my oxygen tank. I was already out of breath halfway in. I had to stop and take a rest.”
Asked if she noticed Lawrence’s wardrobe malfunction, Kate said, “I didn’t!” Asked if the safety ropes were uncomfortable, Kate said, “I’m sure I had it better than Lawrence!”
