Following the success of ViuTV’s gay drama, Ossan’s Love, which follows a young man who finds himself caught in a love triangle between his boss and his roommate, TVB will be airing its first gay dating show in November this year, according to Hongkong media.
The show, titled Boyscation, will be hosted by former TVB star Vinci Wong, 50.
Vinci, who is also credited as the show’s producer, Instagrammed a snap of him with a glass of champagne on the set of the show. “The most important chapter of my TV career. The most extraordinary attempt in Hongkong television history,” he wrote.
Vinci made his showbiz debut as a TVB artiste in 1994 and would go on to make his name as an accomplished host.
In 2013, Vinci came out as gay, making him one of the few openly gay celebs in Hongkong. He tied the knot with his non-celeb boyfriend, Kevin Chow, in Canada in 2016.
The 50-year-old, who is the second cousin of actor Kevin Cheng, comes from money.
Vinci is currently the executive director of Wong's Kong King International, a billion-dollar company started by his father, Senta Wong, who serves as the chairman on the company’s board of directors.
