Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) disclosed he was being conned on 19 September and had not received the payment for his stage performance in Malaysia since December 2016. He attends the worshipping ceremony of It's Like This, Your Honour (是咁的,法官閣下) series on 20 September and says: "I went over to Malaysia during last Christmas and the middleman passed me the receipt. It appears that they have paid me on the surface. Initially, I assume the opposite party does not want to cheat me purposely and everyone has his/her own difficult time. I do not want to blow it up and it will affect his future."

Oscar tells the company to chase after the payment slowly but the opposite party continues to make use of other artistes' names to attract the investors to invest in his business: "Some have collect the payments. I know Sam Lee (李燦琛) and Jazz Lam (林子善) meet similar situations before but I suffer the greatest loss as it is enough for my daughter's one year school fees. In fact, everybody is worried about other investors assuming we are involved and it damages our reputation. The company are currently pursuing the legal responsibility. Sam and Gordon hope it will not happen to other people as it is considered pitiful after finishing the job without being paid."

Vincent Wong (王浩信) becomes the king this year as 3 series such as My Unfair Lady (不懂撒嬌的女人), Legal Mavericks (踩過界) and Heart of Greed 3 (溏心風暴3) are airing one after another. Although he will be filming Brothers (兄弟) series day and night in October, but Vincent continues to maintain himself well and confesses he is more vain than his wife: "I will seek advice from my wife about skincare and even use her skincare products but I dare to say that I am better than her now, as the pressure can affect the body. Other than exercising to reduce the stress, I also play with my daughter and it decreases my stress greatly. The children definitely have the power to make everyone happy and relaxing."
