With the praises for recent TVB drama, Rear Mirror <載得有情人>, onscreen couple Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) and Tony Hung (洪永城) have become a hot discussion topic lately, reports Jayne Stars.
In the series, Natalie dropped her innocent image and portrays a character with commitment commitment issues. While partying at a bar, she met the socially shy Tony. Although their personalities differ vastly, they had a one-night stand after one too many drinks. After the incident, Natalie resumed her life while Tony’s character vowed to take responsibility for that night’s actions. Through his persistence, the two characters from different backgrounds became attracted to one another and fell in love in the end.
In real life, Natalie explains that her values are polar opposites of her character in Rear Mirror. “I hold a very traditional perspective, and I can’t accept one-night stands. However, if other people choose to have one-night stands, I won’t blame them.”
Tony also added that he never had a one-night stand, but he has had a one-night kiss in his youth. Although it was the woman who had initiated, Tony said his story ended there, and nothing happened beyond the kiss.
Recalling how he pursued Natalie in the series, Tony said the most unforgettable and intense scene was when he stood on a crane five-story high while playing a song on the guitar for Natalie. Despite the numerous spectators, Tony took Natalie onto the crane platform and gave her a passionate kiss.
Tony may have found the scene embarrassing, but Natalie found it very romantic. “Women like romance. Personally, I don’t need so many different gestures. I’m fine as long as there’s thought behind the planning. Right now, I have not encountered anything romantic. I’m waiting for a romantic gentleman.”
Natalie said she likes men who are more talkative. Since she is slow to open up to others, Natalie prefers talkative men. Indirectly revealing that she is still single, Natalie said, “Friends have started introducing bachelors to me. Each time, the timing is off or the feeling is not right. Fortunately, my family and I are not in a rush.”
