On September 11, the cast of All That is Bitter is Sweet <大藥坊> promoted the drama at a Chinese medicine store in Tsuen Wan.
All That is Bitter is Sweet premiered on September 8 to only 18 ratings points because it coincided with the Mid-Autumn Festival. The cast was relieved when ratings steadily climbed and achieved a peak viewership rating of 28 points this week.
Star of the series, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), expressed that if the drama manages to achieve an average rating of over 30 points throughout its broadcast run, she will hold a poolside party and wear a retro one-piece swimsuit with a high cut.
According to Jayne Stars, co-star Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) said he will also join the fun and wear small swim briefs at the party.
Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) said she would not wear a swimsuit, expressing that Linda should take that spotlight.
Earlier, she was photographed meeting with a male friend. Rumored to be her boyfriend, Natalie quickly clarified, “He’s a friend I’ve known for over ten years. He’s not single anymore either. There will never be any [romantic] development between us.”
As September 9 was Mid-Autumn Festival, Linda was asked if she had celebrated the holiday with her boyfriend, Philip Ng (伍允龍). Linda declined to reveal any details.
