Steven was asked if he will be celebrating the success of Ghost Writer with his girlfriend, to which he replied, "When I get good results at work, my family and friends are always happy for me. I will be treating the cast and crew to dinner though." Steven also played down his chances for the TV King award this year, "Every year, I hope that I am able to get recognition and possibly an award, but a lot of things are not up to me to decide."

Reporters commented that Steven now has a successful career, so when is he settling down and tying the knot. "Getting married is a part of life. I will definitely get married, but the date has not been determined yet," explains Steven.

Producer Leung Choi Yuen also expressed his thanks to the viewers. Going up against the World Cup and achieving 41 points is not an easy feat, admits Producer Leung.
