Fans were devastated when popular variety show “Call Me By Fire (披荆斩棘的哥哥)” ended on 29th October. Many mourned the loss of seeing their favourite stars on screen and the casual interaction between groups. However, it isn’t quite the end for one particular group.
The “Big Bay Area Brothers (大湾区哥哥)” group, which consists of Edmond Leung (梁汉文), Michael Tse (謝天華), Jerry Lamb (林晓峰), Jordan Chan (陳小春), and Julian Cheung (张智霖), has a new show for fans to enjoy. Called “Night in Wan Chai (大湾仔的夜)”, their latest show promises more content for fans (and considerably more chill).
Here’s what we know about the show so far:
1. Who’s involved?
The original group from “Call Me By Fire” will be hosting the show this time. Of course, it wouldn’t be much fun if they didn’t invite a few special people to join them as guests. We don’t have the entire guest list, but a few names have been dropped, such as Hong Kong actresses Kara Wai (惠英红) and Kingdom Yuen King-dan (苑瓊丹).
The brothers haven’t forgotten the friends they had on “Call Me By Fire” either. We’ll be seeing Michael Tse’s good friend and fellow actor MC Jin and Julian Cheung’s ‘adopted godson’ Bridge (布瑞吉, Chen Jianqiao, 程劍橋). Fans can definitely look forward to seeing the brothers’ having fun with their friends.
2. What’s the show about?
Unlike “Call Me By Fire”, “Night in Wan Chai” will have less competition and will instead showcase the group simply being themselves. As advertised, the five idols will be exploring Wan Chai with their guests and enjoying it as it is. There will be plenty of food, music and even some performances! But overall, the show promises a chill time with the five brothers.
3. When will it be out?
As news about filming started before “Call Me By Fire” ended, it’s no surprise it’ll be coming out soon. However, fans won’t have to wait too long! Posters for the show were released yesterday announcing the broadcasting date as 17th November. It will be broadcasted every Wednesday at 12pm. Fans will be able to enjoy the show for 12 episodes, so buckle up your seatbelts and get ready for a ride!
Fans aren’t the only ones excited for the show. The members themselves have been dropping hints about it on their own Weibo posts. Michael Tse casually mentioned that his “next stop” was Wan Chai on 1st November while Edmond announced he was taking a day off from filming the show on 5th November as it had been his birthday.
We know they’ve put a lot of effort into the show, even braving being mobbed by fans during filming. So, we’re definitely looking forward to it!
