[Local Entertainment]  Ain’t No Hero 《当世没英雄》Press Conference

Kuala Lumpur, 2023 - "Aint No Hero 《当世没英雄》” , Malaysia's first Cantonese ancient martial arts drama is now on Astro Wah Lai To On Demand from April 21st onwards, unleashing a martial arts combat that combines the romance of ancient costume dramas with current humour. Yoon 吴家润 , who is more accustomed to variety shows than dramas, takes on the position of drama producer for the first time and confesses that the most challenging components of the job were modifying the screenplay, casting the roles, and regulating the budget. During filming, she used all of her connections to bring in over thirty popular local actors.


Yoon admits that she spent about a year adapting the script and put in a lot of time and work, frequently waking up in the middle of the night to explore creative ideas. From casting and rehearsals to filming and post-production, she was involved in every phase of the process. She notes that the standards of a drama are incredibly meticulous, from the structure of the screenplay and character interactions to the appearance of each character, right down to their socks and cosmetics. The large cost of post-production also surprised her, but she was fortunate to have the cooperation of the producers, coordinators, and executive producer to keep filming costs under control and the drama completed without squandering any resources. She also states that she would not be concerned about the ratings once the drama is released because she has done everything she can manage.


Lee 李治成, the head of Astro's Chinese R&D and production (news, information, and drama) department, indicated that they invited Yoon to be the producer primarily because they trust her, like her abilities, and admire her zeal. Yoon, who has been in the profession for many years and is at ease both in front of and behind the camera, he says, is ready to step outside of her comfort zone and offer new energy to the drama industry.


During the recent press conference, Vivienne 温慧茵、Sam沈展宁、Jordan盛天俊、Lovell陈馷佳、Eric赖宏恩 and others appeared in their elaborate costumes from the drama. Because her character in the drama "杜生"  is a carefree online writer, Vivienne was the only one dressed in modern fashion. She joked that she spent more than seventy percent of her time on set being herself and didn't need to spend much time on her makeup, which was very casual.


The costumes of the other actors were also a hot topic. For example, Yoon's radio partner, Jack 叶朝明, who played the role in the Beggar Clan, had an unkempt hairstyle that was the focal point of the event. He also told reporters that when Yoon first invited him, he politely declined, but Yoon arranged for him to try on costumes and read the script without listening to his refusal. Jordan's appearance in the drama was the most jumbled, and it was difficult to identify him at first. He also made fun of himself, thanking the production team for restoring his appearance at the press conference and allowing him to appear on camera for the first time in a long time.


Interestingly, Daniel 车子(车志立) costume made the entire cast and crew laugh during the fitting. He wore a white dress with black long hair, and the stylist added a hair clip to match his daily routine in the drama, which was hilarious. Yoon also revealed that when she first "persuaded" Daniel to join the production, she promised him that he would be the male lead. After trying on the costumes and reading the script, Daniel realised he was only playing a supporting role. Daniel also stated at the press conference that he has a long-term vision and hopes that Yoon will fulfil her promise and let him be the male lead in a drama she produces someday.


Ernest Chong (张顺源), who had not acted in years and had since become a director, was another actor with an unusual costume. He agreed to play the role of 郭城, one of the "Four Great Heavenly Kings," after being invited by Yoon. He explained that his stiff costume was like a wall, causing him to sweat profusely while filming, which elicited laughter from the audience.


"《当世没英雄》Ain't No Hero" is not only Malaysia's first Cantonese costume drama, but also the first in which the majority of the young actors speak Cantonese throughout the show. At the press conference, actors such as Lovell 陈馷佳and newcomer 关丽荭 cracked numerous jokes. Sam沈展宁also had his first naked scene in a drama, and veteran actor Jordan Voon expressed delight that Malaysia now has its first Cantonese costume drama. Despite his minor role, he was pleased with the trailer and praised the production team for daring to try something new. Furthermore, Sam and Lovell acted as a couple in the drama, and Vivienne revealed that Lovell's boyfriend, Fuying, always came to the set because of her. Yoon also joked that having Lovell on set allowed her to invite Fuying to make a cameo appearance.


At the same time, producer Yoon revealed that many of the actors' appearances and costumes matched her vision of the drama's original characters. Eric  赖宏恩, who played the villain in the drama, for example, had a killer look and a "story" that matched her vision of the ambiguous character prototype. When asked why he was the only one who didn't wear a wig, Vivienne laughed and said it was because his looks didn't need to be hidden from the audience.


Jonathan Lee 李浩菖, the last actor to join the cast, expressed his excitement and gratitude for being a part of the drama. He stated that he was thrilled to work with the actors after reading the script. He played role who pretends to be foolish and innocent, and revealed that his character had a plot twist.


"《当世没英雄》Ain't No Hero" a Malaysian-produced Cantonese costume martial arts drama, is based on the serialised novel "《当世四大天王》" by Hong Kong online novelist 尤奇. The plot revolves around the martial arts world imagined by Du Sheng (played by Vivienne), an online writer. The eight tokens held by the major sects combine to form the ultimate martial arts treasure map in this fictional world. Whoever collects all of the tokens will become the martial arts world's ruler. Four of the tokens, however, have been stolen. The plot begins with Zhang Rong's death, and his sister Xie Ting (played by Aries 关丽荭) going missing. Her brother, Xie Feng (Sam), sets out to find her and meets Yi Chen (Jordan) and Zhang Bai Shi (Lovell), with whom he develops a romantic relationship. Xie Feng and the others seek the help of the master of Tui Sheng Tang, Tan Bo Lin (played by Jordan Voon), as well as the "Four Great Heavenly Kings": Li Ri Yue, the lord of Dong Mei Island (played by Daniel Che), Guo Cheng (played by Ernest Chong), Liu Hua, the king of the South China Sea (played by Jonathan Lee), and the leader of the Beggar Clan, Zhang You You (played by Jack叶朝明 ).


In addition to the lead actors, "Ain't No Hero" was supported by Astro's Chinese radio station DJs from MY, MELODY, and GOXUAN, who made cameo appearances in the drama. Everyone went above and beyond to give their best performance while also displaying their funny and silly sides. Meanwhile, Hong Kong fortune teller Mai Ling Ling made a cameo appearance as the master who guides Vivienne's female lead. She praised Vivienne for her serious demeanour and acting abilities, as well as the highly professional and enjoyable collaboration with the drama's production team. Yoon also revealed that despite the outdoor scenes being shot in the sun for nearly an entire afternoon, Mai Ling Ling was very enthusiastic and professional on the day of shooting.


The production team revealed that the drama was shot during a severe COVID-19 outbreak last year, and that almost every day, actors or crew members were diagnosed with the virus. To keep the filming schedule intact, they had to change the script, locations, and even use stunt doubles on a regular basis. During filming, the production team faced numerous challenges, including having to stop shooting due to bad weather during outdoor scenes. Fortunately, with everyone's help, they were able to overcome these obstacles, and the drama was successfully released on April 21st.


All of the ten-episode Malaysian-produced Cantonese costume martial arts TV drama "Ain't No Hero" is now on Astro華丽台 Wah Lai Toi On Demand.
