Variety show “Call Me By Fire (披荆斩棘的哥哥)” has brought great pleasure to both fans and its participants. As the show has gathered many artistes to perform, it’s no surprise old friends will meet and have a chance to work together again.
One such pair is Michael Tse (謝天華) and MC Jin (Jin Au-Yeung, 欧阳靖) from the drama “Lives of Omission (潜行狙击)”. On 27th September, the duo took a photo imitating a scene from the drama to commemorate the show’s 10th anniversary.
“Lives of Omission (潜行狙击)” was released in 2011 as one of TVB’s most famous police dramas. MC Jin took on a comedic leader role while Michael played as his subordinate and as an undercover agent. The duo’s chemistry and acting skills impressed and delighted the fans.
In one iconic, scene, Jin was leaning on his subordinate’s shoulder while laughing at something. Michael kept a stiff upper lip as Jin laughed but it was one of the scenes which cemented their friendship and support for one another. Thankfully, that friendship held, both on-screen and off-screen.
When the duo met again on “Call Me By Fire”, both were apparently overjoyed to meet each other. “Jin Au-Yeung!” Michael shouted when he laid eyes on his friend. “Laughing Sir (Jin’s nickname during “Lives of Omission”) reporting (for duty)!” MC Jin responded jokingly.
If their initial reference to the show pleased fans, their reenactment of the iconic scene delighted them even more. “So, after ten years, (Michael) will still be your undercover agent,” one fan said. “(Their) friendship is long,” another comment observed. “Unexpectedly, (even after) ten years, there will still be the aftermath of “Lives of Omission”.”
It is not known if the duo will be working together on “Call Me By Fire” or against one another. However, fans are definitely hoping for the former!
