The 50-year-old toasted the show, titled Boyscation, in an Instagram post on 7 October. “The most important chapter of my TV career,” he wrote. “The most extraordinary attempt in Hong Kong TV history.” Boyscation is expected to air on TVB’s J2 channel and will see 10 diverse contestants from all different backgrounds look for love.
