Kenneth Ma Plays Soccer: Slacks Off but Defeats Students
Kenneth Ma, Lin Xia Wei, Selena Li, Ngo Ka Nin, Raymond Cho, Ronald Law, etc. went to a school to promote "Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain". Kenneth and a group of actors had a five-person soccer match with the students' soccer team. The actresses acted as a cheerleading squad. During the match, Ka Nin and Raymond even cheated by moving the goal to prevent the students from getting a goal. In the end, the artistes' team defeated the students' team.
Does Not Dare to Go All Out
Kenneth did not run much on the court, explaining that it was because of the hot weather: "I like to play soccer in summer, but I have to return to the company to work afterward...cannot go all out". Regarding the decreased ratings for the new series, Kenneth was still full of confidence for the new series: "Perhaps it is because the people's topic is on the World Cup. Surfing the net, I have seen that the reaction for the series is quite good". Regarding viewer complaints on the clothing and the terminology differing from the Song Dynasty, he said, "Actually, look at how one looks at it. Would only use rather more street terminology to show that the role is from the lower class, but there are no swear words. We will accept opinions".
Personal Note: Cute seeing Selena cheer in character! :)
