Filming for upcoming Taiwanese television series Zuo Gong De Ren (roughly translated as Building Workers), which is based on Lin Li Ching’s best-selling novel of the same name, has come to an end.
On April 23, a wrap party was held in Taipei, with director Fen Fen Cheng and stars Christopher Lee, Alex Ko, You An Shun, Miao Ke Li, and MC40 in attendance. They talked about their experience filming on a construction site and about trying to convey the thoughts and feelings of construction workers.
A four-minute preview clip of the series was played at the event, after which MC40 broke down in tears. “The hard work that is shown in the final product is less than one-third of how tough it really was to film in real life,” he explained. “As the least experienced cast member, I was so worried that I would drag everyone else down. Thank you for willing to believe in me.”
Christopher admitted that he was hesitant to accept this role at first. “This is my very first drama in the Taiwanese language, and I was afraid that I would be unable to do a good job,” he said. “However, I tried to go to the set with a relaxed attitude, and now that filming has finally finished, I have absolutely no regrets. This drama has a very uncommon theme, and it’ll probably be a once-in-a-lifetime project for me.”
