On 17th November, Owen Cheung (張振朗), Shaun Tam (譚俊彥) and Elaine Yiu (姚子羚) were at the promotion activity for TVB new drama, The Ringmaster (拳王). As the male lead, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) was currently in Mainland China, he specially recorded a video to show his support. He expressed it was worse than filming Death by Zero (殺手) series because of losing weight and building his muscles. Owen said: “Yes, I need to talk lesser in order to preserve my energy.”

Although Shaun made a simple cameo appearance, but he was required to lose 17kg within 4.5 months and suspected to fall ill instead. Owen felt touched and grateful to Shaun for helping him to focus on the drama. Shaun said: “I know losing weight is hard but gaining weight is even harder. Looking at Owen eating boiled chicken and drinking chicken water makes me feel heart pain. It is very bad for health.” Owen disclosed he failed to maintain that body figure now: “I did save the photos and video taken at the set. Once in a lifetime and I wish to try other roles.”

When mentioned about TV King this year, Shaun reckoned Owen stood a high chance but Owen said: “We become good friends after shooting Justice Bao: The First Year (包青天) drama. I believe Shaun stands a higher chance and it is enjoying when attending awards ceremony together.”
