Michael Miu and Felix Wong who starred in Gun Metal Grey were unsatisfied because they were not invited for TVB's anniversary gala show and they felt that their series did not have enough promotions. They both expressed their anger on Weibo. Felix is angry of TVB for abusing public opinion and couldn't be bothered about the awards. Producer He Li Quan expressed that today's meeting will discuss on how to save the situation and stressed that they would arrange for "Gun Metal Grey's" casts to attend the awards presentation to "rescue the fire". They are hoping that this would put out both Big Brother's anger.
While attending an event, when mentioning about Felix Wong and Michael Miu's absence in the gala show, He Li Quan explained that the both of them could not make it for practice, but they would be invited for the awards presentation, "Actually Raymond Lam could come back in time for the show too, but we can't be just asking him to turn up and have nothing to perform, the only one that didn't need rehearsal was the comedy, but Eric Tsang also dare not fool the both of them la!" Regarding the both of them who felt that "Gun Metal Grey" was being abandoned, He Li Quan said, "I will further understand the matter. Why would it be not enough? (promotion) No matter what it is an anniversary's series, the company cares about them!"
Regarding Felix who once again commented on Weibo, He Li Quan accepted an interview yesterday and said, "Actually main producer also wanted to have all the artists to come, it's not that he wanted to prioritize anyone and abandon anyone." (Apologize to him?) Tomorrow(means today), there will be a meeting to discuss on how to settle it, we will look for a professional to discuss with him, they haven't been corporating for so long, the series' rating is also good, we don't want any misunderstanding."
Gala Show's producer, Wei Shi Hui expressed that gala show is a happy program, shouldn't have any conflicts. He also refused to make an apology, "If they are not satisfied with anything, they should come back to the office and tell us, and not going through the media to voice out."
"Gun Metal Grey;s" producer Tang Ji Ming expressed that Felix has been hot tempered, but he still supported him that he didn't do this for promotion purposes, "He is just voicing out from his heart, it's a little unfair, but Wei Shi Hui was also the passive one." (Felix doesn't want to be used like a chess piece?) "In this world, everyone is a chess."
Reporter: What do you think of He Li Quan's explanation?
Felix: What has it got to do with him? Explaining more is just to cover up!
Reporter: Gala Show's producer Wei Shi Hui said that his mobile phone wasn't turned off at all, artists have any unsatisfactory can give him a call?
Felix: My phone is switched on all the time too! Did TVB look for me? Did they call me? But big stations have their own style, don't have to explain so much! The audiences are very smart now, don;t have to cover up to "rape" public opinion! It's not what program they say is nice means it's nice!
Reporter: Will you attend awards presentation?
Felix: Who cares about their awards! Just a game, they can give it to whoever they like! I don't want to be misused like a chess piece, I have my own style, I will speak out when I'm not satisfied!
Reporter: Will you not film for TVB anymore?
Felix: We'll talk about that when the time comes, it's two different matters, why not worry whether "Gun Metal Grey" will be cut la!
Reporter: Your comments were so emotional, not worried of getting into trouble?
Felix: What is there to worry? Don't let me step in TV city!
Michael Miu who has the same stand as Felix pointed that TVB should have contacted him. Regarding He Li Quan's explanation, he didn't seem like he cares, "I don't have any comments, thank him for responding! (Attending awards presentation?) "We'll see when the time comes, now I'm workin, don't worry about whether I'm going or not.
