The name of the impersonated doctor was Chan Chin Pang (陳展鵬), who happened to have the same name as an internal doctor in United Christian Hospital (聯合醫院). The reporters contacted artiste, Ruco Chan to check with him and he felt that it resembled to filming series: "It is very weird and I guess the nurses will not assume the accused is me?" Ruco expressed it was odd that nobody discovered an impersonated doctor in the hospital: "Perhaps the hospital staff were too busy and fortunately, nothing serious happened." He added that the story could be used for filming series in the future.

The identity of impersonated doctor was exposed

Based on understanding, the impersonated doctor worked in the hospital for a month and went into the orthopedic ward to look at the patient's medical board on 15 April.

Flora went back to acting for a living but her workload was reduced drastically compared to the past. 6 months ago, she filmed the series, Never Dance Alone (女人俱乐部) and begun to film another new series, Good Morning, Boss (波士早晨) recently. Flora emphasised before that she had no financial problem and bought a Mercedes car at $470,000 in the beginning of the year, and paid for a monthly rental at $80,000 in Shouson Hill. No wonder she continued her diva temper and pointed that she showed a black face while filming series.

Ever since her husband was declared bankruptcy, Flora needed to find ways to pay for her daughter, Mira Chung (钟律然) monthly school fees which was almost $10,000. 2 years ago, she paid a monthly rental of $50,000 to stay in Pok Fu Lam but move house to an old apartment in the same area. Flora also sold away her beloved Mercedes car.

On the surface, Flora's living standard appeared to decrease. At that point, she was trying to earn money and promised to film the series, Triumph in the Skies II (冲上云霄II) but suddenly rejected to act when the film producer Tommy Leung (梁家树) was about to begin the filming.

Petrina Fung Bo Bo recently participated in the Clifton Ko Chi Sum directed and written film WONDER MAMA (MA MI HUP) with Kenneth Tsang Kong, Susan Shaw Yam Yam and BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik. Sister Bo Bo has been away from film for ten years and made a rare return to film. WONDER MAMA before its release has already participated in many film festivals like the 2014 Golden Horse Film Festival Asian Window segment, The East Winds Film Festival in England and Singapore Chinese Film Festival.

Earlier Fung Bo Bo, Tsang Kong and executive producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming flew to Beijing to attend the 5th Beijing International Film Festival red carpet ceremony. Fung Bo Bo even won a wedding gown to demonstrate that she was married to film for life. Sister Bo Bo said, "My life is like I am married to film. For the film festival, this time I asked the designer to make me a wedding gown to represent the life that I share with the camera." She said that the Mainland audience knew her from the television series EMPRESS WU. 31 years later she walked the red carpet in Beijing for the first time as an executive producer and a lead actress. She was emotional. Thus the WONDER MAMA production to her was particularly meaningful.
