10 years after Triumph in the Skies, TVB decided to make a sequel and held a press conference yesterday at CCTV's 2012 China International Film & TV programs Exhibition in Beijing. The cast including Myolie Wu, Fala Chen and Kenneth Ma were there to promote the series. 12 other TVB series for 2013 were featured at the exhibition as well, including Beauty at War, Rosy Business 3, The Hippocratic Crush II, Transfer of Love Firm, The Days of Days, Food for Slave, etc.
When speaking of being part of the same TV series after 10 years, Myolie Wu felt emotional, she said: "So meaningful, I've matured both in and out of the series." In Triumph in the Skies 2, Myolie plays a new role named Summer, who is completely different from Zoe from the first season. She expressed: "Zoe is very nosey and optimistic. Summer is rather quiet, but is very serious about her relationships." Myolie reveals she and Ron Ng will develop a relationship, "At first, he thought I was his sister-in-law, but later developed feelings for me." Because the cast and crew were filming in locations such as Sanya, Taiwan, England and France, Myolie exclaimed it didn't feel like work, it felt more like a vacation.
Fala expressed when she accepted this series, the first thing she did was watch "Triumph in the Skies" and eventually turned into a faithful fan of the series. In the series, Fala takes on the challenge as the female pilot. She frankly expressed for her best performance on this role, she did a lot of research to gain professional knowledge on this field. She said: "I tried to use those special terms as much as I could, so I don't get them wrong." Also, she exposed she and Francis Ng develop an ambiguous relationship, "I had a pleasant collaboration with him, I learned a lot." Kenneth Ma's Mandarin wasn't too good, so he didn't speak as much. He only said there are a lot of relationships in this series.
Fala Complains About Super Crowded Beijing Subway
Also, yesterday morning Fala posted a photo of her in a super crowded subway in Beijing. She said: "After being stuck in a traffic jam for an hour, you might as well just abandon your car and try the subway. But who knew, after waiting for 3 trains, I could only barely fit in the train. Out of impulse, I just walked instead! But, the temperature outside was below 10 degree...ahhhhhh! Beijing!" Fala's encounter at the Beijing subway, attracted nearly 1600 comments from Netizens. The majority of them took advantage to complain bitterly about the subway system. Others regretted that they didn't get to encounter Fala at the subway, but there was also a group who has to go through the jammed packed subways every day to get to work. They shared their painful experience as well: "Those who have never experienced in a jammed packed Beijing subway during the morning and evening rush hours should not be talking about life!" Some teased Fala: "If you're able to take pictures, then it's not that crowded! You should go personally experience it during the early hours of 6:30-8:30am!"; "You're lucky to be able to even stand on the subway!"; "Is it because you don't look as pretty in person as you do on TV? How come nobody recognized you?"
