Selling Point

Long-anticipated myth will be on screen again.

Flying all the way to Europe for video-shooting.

Unique characters and powerful storyline are soul stirring.



SAMUEL TONG (Francis Ng) stays in the UK to spend a long vacation following his wife's death. After encountering HOLIDAY HO (Fala Chen), a wanderer who just got dumped, he ends his vacation early and returns to Hong Kong, joining Skylette Airline as a pilot to fly again. He meets Captain JAYDEN KOO (Julian Cheung), and the two exhibit two distinct personalities, with SAMUEL being reserved and JAYDEN being a man who likes to attract attention. Respectively, the two get emotionally entangled with HOLIDAY, who arrives in Hong Kong to apply for pilot training. Moreover, SAMUEL becomes a training captain to assess JAYDEN, leading to a competition between the two for both career and love.


JAYDEN's younger sister SUMMER HA (Myolie Wu) is an aircraft maintenance technician, and she bears grudges against her brother due to an unhappy experience during her childhood. ISSAC TONG (Ron Ng), due to SUMMER physically resembling his sister-in-law ZOE so much, cannot turn a blind eye on it, so at last, he helps settle the dispute between SUMMER and her brother. SUMMER has a crush on ISSAC, yet ISSAC restrains himself from taking another step forward in order to avoid evoking SAMUEL's grief.


First Officer ROY KO (Kenneth Ma) has two girlfriends and cannot make up his mind as he does not bear to hurt anyone. After sharing his secret with HEATHER FONG (Elena Kong), a senior purser, ROY and she become close associates, and the two even have a one night stand. JIM JIM (Him Law), who used to represent Hong Kong in swimming, plans to retire and enroll in flight training, where he falls in love with COCO LING (Nancy Wu), who is to be a surrogate mother for her friend. With the planes taking-off and landing, stories of sorrow, parting, joyfulness and re-encounters have been constituted.


Development (credit TITS2 wiki)


In May 2011 Tommy Leung, deputy chief director of TVB's drama department, announced their plans to develop a sequel to Triumph in the Skies with intentions to begin filming in September of that year.[1] Leung added that a theatrical film sequel would be made in the beginning of 2012, in hopes of boosting TVB artistes to become film stars.[1] In June 2011, it was reported at a TVB press conference that Michael Miu, Raymond Lam, Fala Chen, and Kate Tsui were in negotiations to join, with original cast members Ron Ng, Myolie Wu, Bosco Wong, Kenneth Ma, and Nancy Wu slated to return.[2] Jessica Hsuan, at the time, submitted her name to be part of this series to work with Francis Ng and Chilam Cheung; but it did not work out as her contract with TVB had ended. In July 2011, Ron Ng, Myolie Wu, Kenneth Ma, Nancy Wu, Fala Chen, and Kate Tsui were confirmed to film the sequel. Following the announcement, TVB pushed back the filming schedule from September 2011 to December 2011 due to negotiation problems with Triumph II's previous airline sponsor Cathay Pacific, which caused some of the newly signed cast members to withdraw, including Michael Miu.[3]


To accommodate the schedules of Ron Ng, Kenneth Ma, and Fala Chen, whom were booked to film television drama Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles from November 2011 to March 2012, TVB postponed Triumph II's filming to May 2012.[4] In September 2011, it was reported that Hong Kong Airlines replaced Cathay Pacific as the drama's main sponsorship.[5]


In December 2011, TVB aired a sales promotional trailer for Triumph II to attract more sponsors, which included a surprise appearance by original cast member Francis Ng at the end of the trailer. Julian Cheung, who replaced Michael Miu's role in the trailer, was reportedly hired by TVB for 80,000 HKD per episode,[6][7] and later confirmed his involvement in April 2012.[8] Raymond Lam and Bosco Wong also appeared in the footage, but both backed out due to conflicting schedules.[9] Rebecca Zhu was later confirmed to join the cast.[10]


On 21 December 2011, it was reported that Francis Ng was in negotiations to return.[11] To accommodate Ng's schedule, filming was postponed again to September 2012,[12] and then moved forward to July 2012. In May 2012, Kate Tsui revealed in an interview done in Australia that she had been pulled out of the cast to film a mainland Chinese drama instead.[13] Following her announcement, Elena Kong and Kelly Fu were cast. On 23 May 2012, Next Magazine reported that Sammul Chan was in negotiations to return for a HK$25,000 per episode deal.[14] Chan expressed an interest, but ultimately had to reject the offer due to a schedule clash.

i like series 1 better than the second one. somehow the acting and storyline was much better. it was a little disappointing in the second series because I got bored watching it after 10 episodes.
