Bosco Wong and Venus Wong On Their Roles in “Forensic Heroes V”

The fifth installment of the popular crime scene investigation franchise, Forensic Heroes V <法證先鋒V>, is airing to lukewarm reception. Despite the popularity of the first two installments, the subsequent follow-ups were criticized for their robotic scripts and lack of character development. Hoping to bring back to the success of its predecessors, Forensic Heroes V invited Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) to star in the lead role.

Viewers were excited to see Bosco return to the small screen and were looking forward to his romantic storyline with Venus Wong (王敏奕). Despite the addition of Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), and Tony Hung (洪永城), the drama failed to match the success of the first two series.

Despite their romantic arc, Bosco and Venus do not get together until the very last episode and did not have any intimate scenes. On their collaboration, Bosco humorously joked that filming the series was similar to being sent on a world-class mission to protect his “sister-in-law,” as Venus is married to TVB General Manager, Eric Tsang’s (曾志偉) son, Derek Tsang (曾國祥). Venus deflected and said, “That has nothing to do with it. [Bosco] plays hard to get in the series.”

As this is their second collaboration, Bosco praised Venus for her acting improvement. Compared to when they were filming for Flying Tiger <飛虎之潛行極戰>, Venus is more calm and put together. Venus responded, “I am someone who gets nervous easily, especially when filming opposite experienced actors. I watched Bosco’s drama, Aqua Heroes <戀愛自由式>, when I was in high school!”

Recalling one of the more difficult scenes, Bosco shared that he had to act in front of a green screen for an underwater scene. “Wearing a wire and trying to pretend to swim is quite difficult. The scene came out quite good though and realistic. However, it definitely took a toll on my hips. Fortunately, I’m fine.”

  1. The main characters are not well developed and Venus Wong’s character is superfluous. The actors that are guest starting in each case are stealing the show. Even Matthew Ko as the baddie forensic inspector has a more important role than Venus Wong’s Po Ying. Jackie Cai’s character had so much potential but the illogical “I fell in love with a serial killer in 2 episodes” kinda killed the validity of her character. A fedora tip to Karl Ting, Tony Hung, and Kandy Wong. They wasted Bosco’s acting abilities. And don’t get me started with Fred Cheng’s ending. What happened script writers and producers? Directors are okay.

  2. I think the cases are interesting but the way the case is told is so confusing and boring. So anti-climatic. BEN is SO boring omg I have never seen an actor so boring, like he‘s so bad. Complete waste of Bosco, when he is on screen and plays his character, the like 5 lines he gets, so much more interesting but I don’t know why they treat him like a guest star. I like Jackie‘s character, heck even Tony is better than Ben. SIsley also is kind of a waste, I think she could have had a different role I don’t see how she fits into this story.

  3. Ben is definitely the weak link in this drama. He is interpreting his character as an emotionless robot, which was the fundamental problem I had with both male leads in FH4. Although I find Shaun Tam’s acting to be quite dull in general. Bosco is a much more charismatic actor than Shaun or Raymond. I hope they explore Venus’ character a bit more later on. Right now she seems like a writer’s prop to just be a foil to Bosco’s character and deliver the opposites attract trope.

  4. Finished the whole series. Terrible. BoYing is obsessed with the idea of “fate”. It’s irritating. The fact that they only got together in the last episode and after a clown drama is even more ridiculous. Ben and Sisley’s characters were written as the couple with an “entangled fate in tragedy.” It’s a ridiculous story. The script is weak. Karl can’t act. There are many more negatives but whatever. Too lazy to go on.
