TVB Executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲) announces the work principles to the artiste and discourages the female artiste to wear too sexily when filming series. For example: The female artiste must wear a top when filming swimming or enjoying hot spring scenes and there is a limit for filming rape or relationship scenes.

Ms Lok accepts an interview from Ming Pao (明報): "Have been discussing the work principles and it is released a week ago. The main purpose is to protect our artiste and it is normal. (Worry about something happen to the artiste?) Nope. Many people are watching series at home and we need to respect the limits given. Many artiste praise it is good. (Have to wear a t-shirt at hot spring?) Depends on the venue and it is common sense. After all, many shows are airing during prime time. (What about big scale show?) Wearing glamorously during anniversary show is alright but not bikini and it depends on the occasion. (Alice Chan (陳煒) is allowed to wear sexily during EYT Anniversary Edition show?) It is arranged by the show and to match the production."

TVB forbids its female artiste to portray their sexiness and it causes a limit to rape and relationship scenes. On 15 November, Louis Cheung (張繼聰) says during an event: "I did receive the instruction and unaffected much but see Moses Chan (陳豪) and Sammy Leung (森美) every night now. I guess I am considered the one exposed too much during prime time." He respects the company's decision and it depends on the script such as wearing suit at the beach is impossible.

Asking if he is worried about TVB will forbid male artiste to expose themselves, Louis says: "No choice, I have to respect its decision. TVB has a wide range of audiences such as children and youngsters. Male artiste do not need to exercise in gym daily and can have a full meal." He reveals that Kay Tse (謝安琪) is currently planning her work and should be discussing the schedule with her manger so as to spend some time with her family.

Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Ali Lee (李佳芯), Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) and others are promoting My Ages Apart (誇世代) series on 16 November and are arranged in different groups to play climbing games. Moses Chan (陳豪) and Louis Cheung (張繼聰) perform swiftly but Bobby looks frightened and other male actors proceed to play the game after wearing protective clothes.

After TVB imposing limits to wearing sexily, all actress are seen wearing conservatively. Ali admits to receiving the notification and it does not affect her much as she seldom wears sexily in the public unless it is required in the script when filming drama. Mentioning about the episode raping by Moses in My Ages Apart series on 15 November, Ali replies everyone has a fertile imagination and she wears many layers as safety precaution: "Everyone shouts when my top is removed."

Katy also confesses the limit does not affect her much  and it is good as everyone will not focus on the wrong point. Initially, she wants to wear a bra top but changes to a t-shirt in order to follow the company's instruction. However, Katy has decided the outfit for TVB Anniversary Gala and the bottom part will be transparent and covered by flowers. Asking if she will show it to Ms Virginia Lok (樂易玲) beforehand, Katy says: "No need to. We have many female artiste and she will be very busy. We are always obedient and know how to take care of ourselves."

Artists Ha Yu, Ashina Kwok Yui Sum, Jumbo Tsang Suk Nga and Kimi Chiu Wing Yiu two nights ago promoted their film. The new film's producer Ha Yu has been in show business for years and naturally has heard a lot of ghost stories. However he has never personally experienced any. "Maybe my yang is too strong, I have never run into anything like that. If you believe in this stuff you would easily see it, if you don't then it wouldn't be so easy." Kwok Yui Sum revealed that while shooting in Malaysia they worked on the niche. Although the location was a constructed set, the result was realistic and she felt the chill during the shoot. She also revealed her supernatural experience while visiting Thailand. "I didn't put on make up, the next day the make up bag for some reason was out. I heard people talking in the bathroom, but when I came out my friends said no one said anything."
