Dayo Wong’s “Bounty Lady” to Rescue TVB Ratings?
It has been four years since Dayo Wong (黃子華) last starred in a television drama. From 2000’s War of the Genders <男親女愛> to 2009’s You’re Hired <絕代商驕>, most of Dayo’s dramas have been well-received in the public, and with TVB’s recent slump in TV ratings, the company hopes Dayo’s upcoming Bounty Lady <My盛Lady> will bring the points back up.
Produced by Man Wai Hung (My盛Lady), who has worked with Dayo in You’re Hired, Bounty Lady stars Dayo as Heung Kwong Nam, a PR creative director who is still struggling to forget his heartbroken past. To live with no regrets, Dayo dedicates most of his spare time to help “leftover women” find the love of their lives. Together with his “Super Senior” friends Tung Tin Kiu (Louis Yuen 阮兆祥), Pat Fan Keung (Jazz Lam 林子善), and elder brother Heung Sin Nam (Benz Hui許紹雄), work day and night to help these women.
Whenever Kwong Nam comes upon a kind-hearted woman, he naturally recoils and avoids her. To hide his insecurities, he would act as a complete jerk in front of her, and to his amusement, his new co-worker Jennifer Shing (Kate Tsui 徐子珊) mistakes Kwong Nam as a playboy.
Jennifer is a woman who has the big three – education, income, and social status. Like Kwong Nam, she too is recovering from a broken relationship, and seeing Kwong Nam’s playboy personality only irritates her further. After witnessing Kwong Nam’s sincerity in helping their clients, she slowly starts to fall for him.
According to Producer Man, Dayo himself sponsored over a hundred high-end fashion items for the drama, including clothes, shoes, socks, and accessories. “He personally chose either item and carefully planned the script with us. He has encouraged us all to work hard together,” said the producer.
On his thoughts of how Dayo has changed in the last four years, the producer said, “In the past his characters have all been extremely intelligent and witty with good comebacks, but this time, he’s going through a more emotional approach on his role. I once saw tears in his eyes, especially on the scenes about his brothers. Dayo’s acting is both relaxing to watch and touches the soul.”
Bounty Lady will premiere on Monday, November 25.
