“Storm in a Cocoon” Premieres at 26 Ratings Points
Tavia Yeung’s (楊怡) new costume drama Storm in a Cocoon <守業者> only premiered at 26 ratings points. Despite the low ratings, Tavia did not feel discouraged and appeared with cast members to promote the drama yesterday.
Tavia and Cilla Kung (樂曈) took a ferry to Cheung Chau to attend TVB Chairman Norman Leung’s (梁乃鵬) promotional luncheon for the series. Tavia and Cilla did not hesitate to promote on the streets while they were on their way to Cheung Chau either. The pair handed out traditional peace buns and Storm in a Cocoon posters to the public. Unfortunately, Tavia was rather seasick during her ferry ride, and ended up feeling dizzy when she got off. She stated that she has to take motion sickness pills whenever she boards a boat, after experiencing an extreme case of vomiting due to travelling for work.
“Storm in a Cocoon” is Too Old School?
Storm in a Cocoon is Steven Ma’s (馬浚偉) comeback drama. Revolving around the murder of Steven’s sister, each family member and employee at the silk factory becomes a suspect. Although there are suspenseful elements featured in the story, some viewers claimed the family bickering is too old school.
Tavia defended the production and stated that the show is considerably modern for that era. “I believe the series will become more interesting as the plot develops, because a lot of viewers will want to know who the murderer is.”
Steven Excited to Sing Theme Song
Despite the slow start in its ratings, Steven hopes that the finale will achieve 30 ratings points. Steven said, “I’m very happy to be able to sing the theme song. TVB also invited me to appear on Jade Solid Gold <勁歌金曲>. It’s been three to four years since my last appearance on the show. I’m very nervous.”
At the luncheon gathering, a cake was prepared for Maggie Shiu (邵美琪) and Matt Yeung (楊明), whose birthdays are in February.
