Nicholas Tse Ting Fung yesterday attended a watch event as its spokesperson. He appeared to be in decent mood as he chatted and laughed with the host. However he continued to decline media interviews. Footage of Ting Fung's commercial was shown. Ting Fung said that he really liked the advertising slogan (real watch for real people), which matched his personality and principles of not doing anything that he did not believe in. This commercial was made the day after Ting Fung returned from finishing THE VIRAL FACTOR (YIK JIN) in Malaysia. The team was all Italian masters, which was very refreshing for him. What motivated Ting Fung against using a stunt double for action scenes? Ting Fung said, "Firm belief. Because everyone go to the movie to watch the real Ting Fung and not a fake one, I have to answer to the director, everyone and myself. I want to leave a history made by myself, not from cheating." Ting Fung said that if the director asked him to use a double, he would keep his co-worker's safety in mind. If he could do the stunt he definitely would.
The event yesterday presented a watch to Ting Fung as the host mentioned that his father Patrick Tse Yin also visited the set during the commercial shoot. Ting Fung said that they have not seen each other in a long time so he visited despite the blazing sun. That day everyone was very happy. Many workers asked his father to work with them like fans. Ting Fung even humorously joked, "He is almost as old as the brand." The event later also gave him another watch to give to Sei Gor. Ting Fung immediately imitated his father and posed for photos. Before the event ended, Ting Fung permitted reporters to take photos. Reporters asked him to remove his sunglasses, Ting Fung joked, "Just for you." Before he left security was very nervous and kept the reporters at bay.
