The virus in Wuhan continues to wide-spread and some netizen suspected Huang Xiaoming (黃曉明) was isolated, as he recorded a video clip of himself rooting for Wuhan and wearing sports attire in the same room lately. On 7th February, he admitted he was isolated in a hotel room arranged by the production team and shared photo of himself looking at the street through the windows. Xiaoming was supposed to continue the shooting during lunar new year, but was suddenly isolated for 7 days and relied on exercises and memorising dialogues to pass the time.

On 9th February, Xiaoming posted an online message: “We must stay at home frequently and hopefully they will find a cure soon. Please protect yourselves and your loved ones well. I will be returning home to accompany my family once the virus and shooting ended.”
