TVB and CTI Compete for Most Controversial Scenes

TVB may be facing its worst enemy yet with the rise of the new Hong Kong television station, City Telecom (CTI). Although CTI has yet to obtain a free broadcast license from the government, the new station is already attracting international attention with the release of the teaser trailers for CTI’s upcoming television dramas, which features many controversial topics and daring scenes.

However, TVB is quick to answer the call for war. TVB’s latest television drama, Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>, has been attracting notable attention due to their daring scenes, such as the intense make-out scene between 63-year-old Damian Lau (劉松仁) and 33-year-old Tavia Yeung’s (楊怡), Elena Kong’s (江美儀) deleted masturbation scene, and JJ Jia’s (賈曉晨) busty lingerie scene.

In a recent episode of the family-friendly sitcom, Come Home Love <愛·回家>, Hong Kong model Snowy (白雲), a guest star, almost exposed her large 35E cups when costar Joey Law (羅天宇) tried to help her zip up her jacket. Divas in Distress <巴不得媽媽…> surprised the audience with a hilarious bra-wrap scene that involved Eliza Sam (岑麗香) pulling out her own bra so Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) could use it as a temporary arm cast.

Sammy Leung Strips for “Friendly Fire”

Legal drama, Friendly Fire <法網狙擊>, is set to premiere on December 18, replacing the time slot for The Confidant <大太監>. The drama will pick up Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackle’s flavorful theme by including some controversial scenes of its own, which includes the female leads flaunting their curvy figures and featuring a naked Sammy Leung (森美).

As the drama’s main villain, Alice Chan (陳煒) will show her seductive side by appearing in numerous bikini scenes. Supporting actress, Grace Wong (王君馨) will also show off her curvy figure by wearing skin-tight clothing to seduce main lead, Michael Tse (謝天華). Sharon Chan (陳敏之), known for her 42-inch legs, will also have scenes of her showing her bra under a wet shirt.

But most of the attention will likely be directed at Sammy Leung, who decided to “strip naked” for a bath scene. The scene involves Sammy finishing his bubble bath while Sharon Chan helped him get his clothes. When Sharon entered the bathroom, Sammy stood up, completely naked. For the scene, Sammy wore nothing but tight, white-colored briefs. During filming, Sharon could not get over how small Sammy’s nipples were, and in the end, Sammy decided to cover his nipples with soap bubbles so Sharon could stop laughing.

“The [daring bath scene] was for comedic purposes!” Sammy explained. “For this role, I spent many months training in the gym. When we were about halfway into filming, the producer noticed that I lost over 20 pounds and was looking very fit. He didn’t want to waste my efforts and decided to include the bath scene so I could show off everything! It wasn’t a very comforting scene though. I spent hours and hours in the bubble bath, and I could not seem to get that slimy soap feel off my skin. When I got back home that night, I had to take several showers to rub off that feeling.”

Producer Man Wai Hung (文偉鴻) explained that the daring scenes in Friendly Fire were not because of CTI’s influence, and said, “Sammy’s bath scene was meant to be very funny. I would not call it controversial. As for the sexy female characters, it is required for the story. When we first filmed Friendly Fire, CTI’s sales presentation trailers were not released yet, so it has nothing to do with them.”

      Sorry, TVB’s scenes are hardly called daring…

    2. Funn Lim says:

      Nonsense! Rather viewers are turned off by these scenes and got back to the series because they like the performances. And what so daring? Those are blink and gone.

    3. asdfjkl; says:

      i personally feel the snowy/joey was a bit too much for sitcom… i thought her boobs was going to fall out omygod.

    4. Pyro says:

      Lol you call these scenes daring?

      Compared to Hollywood productions this is nothing

      • lol says:

        why would you compare movies with rating ranging from g to rated r to tv series aimed at family viewers?

    5. dd says:

      Maybe we can go for 1.5s rape scenes next time.

      Baby steps, dude, baby steps.

    6. jce says:

      Oh YAWN…!!! Come up with good story lines, fantastic lines, first class acting, now THAT is a winner!

    7. P. Tan says:

      You’re absolutely right, jce and the so called “daring” scenes are only mere attempts at being “daring”. They have not seen what a really grown-up show is all about.

    8. Daisy says:

      How are these daring scenes gonna do anything? It just causes a lot of complaints from audiences… And becomes an awkward drama to watch with your family XD

    9. hiccups says:

      somehow the lady in this pic does not look like the leading actress type

    10. Smile says:

      The top fadan’s having daring scenes and showing off their curves?

      What curves? I find these sticks have no curves! And if they do it look heck of weird because then you have a stick w/these enormous boobies! I’m thinking, when are they going to tip over? Maybe I’m like the only one that didn’t like that scene of Sharaon Chan running naked down the streets of HK.

    11. CHo says:

      sooooo funny! it is going to be interesting!

    12. Yen says:

      Honestly, that episode of come home love is so touching..
      Kinda remind me of Myvolie & Bosco case.
      Every words said by “suen mui” quite the same out from Myvolie.
      Mayb the one who cheats is her n she is just playing the victim card >.<||

    13. Kidd says:

      How is Sharon’s scene shocking? It’s not like she has nothing under the T-Shirt.

    14. Ric says:

      Obviously these scenes are not that daring and TVB never claimed them to be. Only the media is labeling them as daring. These kinds of scenes have always been present in TVBs shows.

    15. Ribb says:

      I can see Sammy Leung’s boxer. Is that so naked? Bleah
