Ya Hui & Lawrence Wong Are Back On Screen Together — And This Time, It’s A Happy Ending
The glowy-skinned pair play lovers in an ad for Shakura Pigmentation Beauty, and Ya Hui tells us what it was like to reunite with an old pal.
The last time Ya Hui and Lawrence Wong were on screen together, it was 2014, and she was wanton mee seller Jinzhi, and he was Xiao Bao, a gangster with a heart of gold who had a crush on her. Sadly, despite their chemistry in the popular Ch 8 drama 118, they didn’t end up together.
Fast forward seven years, and the sparks are once again flying between Ya Hui and Lawrence on screen. Magically, the twosome don’t seem to have aged a day, as we get to admire their porcelain miens in all their poreless, radiant glory. Ya Hui glances cheekily at Lawrence and tells him, “Baby, come a little closer”. He edges towards her, a smile curling on his lips. “Come even closer,” she beckons. He leans in and we think they’re going to k-i-s-s…. Nope. She only wanted him to look at her face and compliment her on her skin. What a tease! If you’re a Lawrence Wong fan, this TV ad for Shakura Pigmentation Beauty may just make your heart skip a beat.
In the TVC, Ya Hui and Lawrence end up going for a couple facial date, and try out Japanese pigmentation specialist Shakura’s signature Miroko Whitening Treatment, which is infused with the Shakura Active Formula, and uses products made with an effective yet gentle and nourishing combination of Milk Essence and the Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower (Roselle Extract). It’s the treatment Ya Hui recommends you try at Shakura, for its cell renewal and brightening effects, and to reduce the appearance of dark spots, pigmentation, acne scars, age spots, freckles and uneven skin tone.
