A familiar face in Cantonese serials, veteran Hong Kong actor Ha Yu has been making his presence felt on Singapore TV.

He returns for his third local drama serial, playing a soccer coach in World At Your Feet, which airs on Channel 8 on weekdays at 9pm.

Speaking to Life! after the drama's press conference here earlier this month, he said: "The TV station MediaCorp gave me a chance to act in this drama, so I decided to come back. I heard the response to my first drama here, Love Thy Neighbour, was not bad."

"Not bad" is an understatement, considering that Love Thy Neighbour was the most-watched Channel 8 drama in 2011 with an average viewership of 941,000.
