Local comedienne Patricia Mok has a fierce "warning" for secret admirers of YouTube personality-turned-actor Noah Yap.
According to a report in The New Paper, it's not part of the script, but "you know, I might just kiss him spontaneously on stage", the actress said in an interview with M last week.
"Noah, you must be mentally prepared," she said. "I'm going to make your female fans very, very jealous."
On April 18, Yap, 21, and Mok, who is twice his age, will turn into Singapore theatre's oddest couple.
He reprises his role of boastful army recruit In Pin Man (nicknamed Ip Man) and she's the new addition as his loud, brassy J-pop-obsessed girlfriend Ayumi in Ah Boys To Men The Musical.
The musical production, slated for a one-week run at Resorts World Theatre at Resorts World Sentosa, is the stage adaptation of director Jack Neo's phenomenally successful Ah Boys To Men movies.
It follows the misadventures of NS recruits Ip Man, Ken Chow (Benjamin Kheng), Lobang (Wang Weiliang) and Wayang King (Maxi Lim) - under the watchful eye of Sergeant Ong (Tosh Zhang) - from the military noobs' enlistment day to their passing out parade.
Ip Man's girlfriend in the Ah Boys movies was originally played by 22-year-old getai singer Sherraine Law.
