Frankie needs to film a Mainland series thus he has rejected it, I reject it because of personal reason, but they gave me another script instead. (It is said because of Michelle's participation, is that why you reject?) I have worked with her before, I consider scripts when filming, not who my co stars are." Michelle's manager admitted that Michelle has accepted this series: "Let i-cable have the say, they will be having a press conference soon enough. (it was said that Kenix retreated because of Michelle Ye?) I'm not sure, it's best to ask i-cable."
