In the scene, Yeo, 43, who played the role of a teacher facing marital woes, shared some intimate moments with a student, portrayed by 20-year-old actor Koh Jia Ler.
In a recent interview, Yeo revealed that Koh was very nervous during the filming of that particular scene.
“I told him that if he wants to continue to progress as an actor, he must imagine his character being in various kinds of situations. After the heart-to-heart talk, he felt less nervous,” she said.
Yeo described the relationship between the characters as “the kind of infatuation you feel when you are only 17”.
For her portrayal of Ling, Yeo, who hails from Johor, won the
Best Actress award at the 56th Golden Horse Awards in Taiwan last year.
> The cancellation of a teacher training programme known as PISMP-UEC is heartbreaking to many UEC graduates, said Jiao Zong chairman Ong Chiow Chuen, reported Sin Chew Daily.
He pointed out that there were graduates who were eager to become teachers via the programme, which remains the only route for UEC graduates to join the civil service.
When contacted, an officer from the Education Ministry who spoke on condition of anonymity said they were awaiting a new directive.
Sin Chew Daily had earlier run a story that teacher training institutes had stopped taking UEC graduates for the Bachelor of Education PISMP-UEC programme this year.
The PISMP-UEC was championed by Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong when he was Deputy Education Minister.
Each year, 20 seats are allocated for UEC graduates to be trained as teachers.
