On 8th June, TVB staff received an internal notification that senior management Felix To (杜之克) will be leaving on 2nd September. On the same day, Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) expressed he had yet to receive an official notification at a promotion campaign for Sinister Beings (逆天奇案) drama with Rosina Lam (林夏薇) and Crystal Fung (馮盈盈). When asked if he was worried about his leaving would affect the sequel, he replied it was their first collaboration and hoped the original cast team will participate again especially with the high popularity in Mainland China. Rosina believed it was important for all artistes to do their duties well and producing a sequel depended on the company’s arrangement. Crystal responded she read the news and had minimal interactions with Felix. Checking if the budget was reduced for her new series based on beauty pageant theme, Crystal said: “I receive little information and clueless about my role now. As an actress, I will do my part well and treat it normal.”

Apparently, episode 21 of Sinister Beings drama achieved an average rating record at 28 pt and became the champion in year 2021 (2021年兩線劇集單集收視冠軍). When stated about the scene related to having an affair with Crystal by mistake, Ruco revealed he discussed it with film producer for several months: “How can I fail to recognise when a woman is sleeping besides me? I will still remain slightly sober no matter how drunk I am. Anyway, It is reasonable and expected.” He added his wife Phoebe Sin (單文柔) watched the scene and felt it was full of suspense, while Rosina hinted she will have many crying scenes and the shooting at the Central during Christmas was an unforgettable memory to her: “I cried until my eyes were swollen.”

As Crystal played a third party between Ruco and Rosina in the drama, she was labelled as “national slut” (國民妖精) by the netizens. Initially, Crystal assumed it was a compliment as sluts were usually cute and lively and it turned out they were referring to her role: “Anyway, becoming a heated discussion is considered a success. I do not mind “national slut” title which is better than nothing. I feel happy that my scene with Ruco becomes the top search in Mainland China and increases my fanbase as well.”
