In the new normal, visiting the set of upcoming Mediacorp drama My Star Bride feels a little something like visiting a mall. The very first thing 8days.sg did upon entering the semi-detached house the crew was filming at earlier this week? Scan the SafeEntry QR code that was created just for this particular location ‘cos well, COVID-19.
The next thing we noticed was a little more sweet. Xu Bin and Chantalle Ng are busy shooting a short promo video for the drama’s premiere next January, while Chantalle's mum Lin Meijiao, who also stars in the drama, busies herself filming the whole thing on her phone. Aww…
But when the director yells cut, Meijiao suddenly takes a dig at Chantalle: “Aiyoh, you guys have been filming for two months, how is it that you all still don’t have any chemistry?”.
And so Xu Bin and Chantalle do a couple more takes, this time with a whole lot more chemistry.
