Joe Ma in Ultraman costume, steals spotlight from Charmaine
TVB New Series "Maiden's Vow" starring Charmaine Sheh and Joe Ma gained ratings averaging at 34 points last week, so yesterday, they joined cast members Sherming Yiu, Ken Wong and Lee Ka Sing at a wishing ceremony in Ping Chau before cracking open the champagne aboard a yacht. Joe appeared wearing an Ultraman costume that showed a little of his 'lunchbox', stealing the limelight from Charmaine!
This was Charmaine's first visit to Ping Chau and she likes the island for its comfort and peacefulness and she hopes that the ratings will continue to rise. Talking of Joe's pants, she says: "I have not paid any attention! This is not the first time I have seen him dressed like this because of the earlier filming, but I did not really pay attention to that area. (What do you think of Joe's Ultraman look?) The outfit suits him overall because he still looks cute wearing pink and being so tall. (How is his figure?) It's okay! It is unusual he looks so cute despite being so tall." Charmaine will not choose such a tall person to be a boyfriend though because during filming, she had to tilt her head up to talk to him and had to wear extra heeled shoes that were very hard work. If her boyfriend was so tall, it would be very difficult to share secrets with each other because she would have to jump up to talk to him!
With Joe being complimented by Charmaine for looking cute, he indicated happily that he has loved Ultraman since he was very young, so to be able to dress like him made him very happy, but he laughs that the costume is only suited to be seen far apart, because if you get too close, you see a bit too much! Asked if this was because his figure is so good, Joe says: "It is not good, so you have to look from a distance, if it was good, then you can look a little closer!" Joe adds that when they were filming for "Maiden", he had a scene where he had to hand out flyers dressed in this costume in the Zoological and Botanical Gardens and a group of children who did not realise he was filming came over and started playing with him. As for whether he was embarrassed about revealing his privates a little, he says that there is nothing special because he has prepared and is wearing two pairs of underpants, so he is not thinking too much about it!
