The character is a “cute and happy” former convict who is encouraged to turn over a new leaf by Elvin Ng, 40, who plays Mao Ge in the drama.
For those out of the loop, Shane’s character didn't die or anything. Instead, James Seah, 31, will replace Shane as Zhong Yiyuan from episode 35 onwards. James’ first episode will air on Tuesday (Oct 19).
The switch was made after Shane parted ways with Mediacorp following his drink driving charge. Shane was sentenced to five weeks' jail in April. He was released in August, and is now managed by Li Nanxing’s artiste management agency LNX Global.
