We’re at the press conference of Carrie Wong’s upcoming Ch 8 drama, My One In A Million, and reporters are scrambling to speak to the star. It is, after all, her first public appearance since May, when explicit Instagram DMs between her and Ian Fang were leaked. Amid the barrage of flirty messages between the two stars were some comments by Carrie about her co-star Lawrence Wong, who had taken over the late Aloysius Pang in this very drama. We’ll get to the offscreen details in a bit, because there’s plenty of onscreen drama that we need to address.
In My One in a Million, Carrie plays a gifted matchmaker who is catapulted to online fame, thanks to her exceptional ability to play Cupid, and is invited to be a guest judge on a variety show, The Destined One.
But here’s a plot twist: The Destined One is not merely a fictitious show within a show. It is actually a brand new, bona fide reality dating series on Ch 8, where real single pringles get to mingle. Yes, things are about to get very meta in Ch 8’s first cross-genre production. My One in a Million cast members will make appearances on The Destined One — in character, too, mind you — while the dating show contestants have cameos in the drama as well. Talk about breaking the fourth wall.
