Yesterday, the cast members of "The Other Truth", including Tavia Yeung, Raymond Wong, Ruco Chan, Louis Yuen, Natalie Tong, Kenneth Ma, Louis Yuen, Louise Lee, etc., attended a promotional event. It was also announced that last week's ratings of this series averaged 29 points, and peaked at 33 points; these results are not bad. Ruco and Kenneth were standing trial on the stage's dock. Ruco was said to have snatched Raymond's screen time; he explained that the screen time in the later half of the series will fall on Raymond. As for Kenneth, he was said to have stolen the limelight because of his handsome looks; he clarified that he only guest-starred for four episodes, and he was later praised by producer Amy Wong for acting with a lot of heart, and that she would reserve a spot for him in the sequel. Afterward, Ruco and Louis also imitated the court's Lady Justice; however, the others played crazily, as they wanted to work together to remove Ruco's shirt so that he would reveal his nipples. Tavia also stuck a sword in his shirt; Ruco helplessly cried out, "Today is 'The Other Truth', not revealing nipples!"
As for Ruco snatching away screen time and becoming a threat, Raymond thinks that it would not be the case because they began to know each other from the other station, and they also both learn martial arts from Master Sin Ho Ying. They have a lot of chemistry when working with each other. Raymond said, "We both developed the basics. It is time to let audiences become more accepting. Would not be such that one would be good, while the other would be bad. I also would not carry the attitude of stepping on others while doing well myself or envy others. Actually, would not necessarily be one going up, while the other goes down. Since the series is good, it proves that everyone is good. Everyone is happy. He is capable, so [should] let him do it. I also understand that there would be provocation online; however, it is very unnecessary and unfair".
There have also been complaints about actors having lazy sounds in the series. Tavia is unsure whether they were talking about her; however, while filming this series, she had the flu, so she had to do voice-overs for the hoarse parts. However, actors should also pay attention to pronunciation to avoid having a bad influence on the audience. Tavia bitterly laughed and pointed out that she has been rushing to film the new series "36 Hours on Call"; inadequate sleep has caused an endocrine imbalance and a breakout of pimples on her face.

Personal Note: As mentioned in the TVBE clip, Amy Wong said that a sequel may be filmed. Natalie also said on her Weibo that the producer has promised to film a sequel. :D Amy Wong has only done indirect sequels (i.e., the "Burning Flame" franchise), so interested to see how it will turn out.
Ha ha.... Ma Ming was the first one to unbutton Ruco's shirt...such good buddies! :P
