A promotional event was held today for TVB new series Speech Of Silence <甜言蜜語>, which will begin airing next week.
Cast members in attendance included Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Kate Tsui (徐子珊), Claire Yiu (姚嘉妮), Kingdom Yuen (苑瓊丹), Matthew Ko (高鈞賢) and Stephen Wong (黃長興).
In the series, Kate plays a character who becomes partially deaf after an accident, so the stars were arranged to meet with some disabled people and play sign language games.
Kingdom played some tricks on Kenneth and Kate, trying to get them to share a kiss. Asked afterwards if she preferred rumours of her dating Kenneth to rumours of them falling out, she laughed that she could get more work if they were a rumoured couple, so that would be better.
This is the fifth collaboration between Kenneth and Kate and in the past, they have played brother and sister, boyfriend and girlfriend and even husband and wife. As a result, they seemed very familiar with each other. Kate laughed that she and Kenneth know each other so well that they are like brothers.
Asked what her expectations were for the show’s ratings, Kate said that she will not put too much pressure on herself, because this can cause mental health problems.
Kenneth revealed that he had to learn some sign language for his role in the show and even learned how to sign a song to cheer Kate’s character up. Asked if he is such a romantic in real life, he said that he is not because he can be quite insensitive and such romance only happens in dramas.

When Kenneth was asked about his thoughts on ratings, he said that he never things about these things because it is beyond his control. As for the rumours of romance between him and Kate, he laughed that no-one is bothering to write about them any more now and Kate is not interested in him because she is too intelligent and beautiful.
