TV Queen Myolie Wu and ‘King of Imitations’ Johnson Lee collaborates for the first time as a married couple in new comedy series Wish and Switch. Although the series is broadcasting over Lunar New Year, Myolie is not worried the ratings would drag down by the holiday. She supports Johnson as the next ‘Housewife Killer’. She said: “Johnson is very cute bring a Little Man, also the theme of the series is refreshing and touching. I have confidence in the TV ratings!” Myolie expressed she and Selena Li trade lives through a mysterious trading website. In a split second, she goes from a housewife to a millionaire’s daughter-in-law. However, in the end she couldn’t switch her life back and causes a huge mess. Greed caused all the troubles!
When asked who he wants to trade lives with in real life? Johnson laughed: “I want to be Bosco [Wong]! Wait until Myolie is off from work and then ask her out, haha!” He exposed in the series, he treated Myolie just as if she’s his ‘wife’, loving her and making her happy. Unfortunately, in reality Bosco is her real man that can capture Myolie’s affections. As for Myolie, she hopes to be a man: “I want to be Johnson Lee, be just as comical as him!” She expressed she will no longer allow herself to shoot scenes where she has to torture herself: “In this series, I got shampoo squirted all over my face, and got skin allergies during the bathtub scenes, so I rather shoot ‘normal series’ instead.”
Now if there really is a mysterious website in reality, Myolie hopes to be like ‘Blueberry’ Kirby Lau and have her body shape like a model: “Her arms and legs are so thin, and she has a career line. I don’t have those!” Johnson says no to trading things: “Let’s not! After this series, I learned a huge lesson, won’t trade anything even if I die. (Trade for the TV King title?) Worthless, if it’s yours then it’s yours!”
TVB series Wish and Switch will be broadcasting tonight (1/3/12). The two lead actresses in the series Myolie Wu and Selena Li were dressed in Snow White costumes as if they were twins. The two were accompanied by the other cast members Johnson Lee and Vincent Wong to a school to play with the children. During the promotion, Myolie suddenly blurted out: “Angela Tong is getting married soon!” Angela quickly shouted that she’s not.
Since the series is broadcasting during the Lunar New Year holidays, many viewers will be out on vacations, is Myolie worried about the ratings being affected? Myolie calmly said: “In the past, I had other series broadcast during this period, just like last year’s The Rippling Blossom, which ended up being the top 5 rated series of 2011. So, the outcomes are hard to predict. I do not dare to say I’m a rating guaranteed artist, but I can say the story of this series is refreshing and there are sparks in my collaboration with Johnson. I have my expectations as well.”
Regarding the past reports being brought up again that when Myolie, who was considered a newcomer at the time, collaborated with Francis Ng in Triumph in the Skies, she was scolded by her seniors and criticized of her poor acting. Today, Myolie has become the TV Queen, but she doesn’t feel insulted. She said: “Even if my seniors scolded me back then, it does not mean they had bad intentions, it is for my own good. I am more than willing to be scolded. I am fortunate that Francis brought this topic up again and cleared up the whole incident. I really do hope we can collaborate again this May in Triumph in the Skies II and I can learn from him.”
