“Daddy Cool” Scored High Ratings in Premiere Week
TVB’s suspenseful time-traveling drama Daddy Cool <逆緣> has opened to decently high ratings, scoring 29 points in viewership ratings in its first week of broadcast. Produced by award-winner Amy Wong (王心慰), Daddy Cool consists of a solid cast featuring TV King Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Carlos Chan (陳家樂), David Chiang (姜大衛), Rosina Lam (林夏薇), Joel Chan (陳山聰), and comeback veteran actress Patricia Ha (夏文汐).
When speaking with the press during a cast dinner, producer Amy Wong said they won’t be celebrating the ratings performance just yet, but she is satisfied to hear about all the good comments coming in. “I’ve been keeping track of audience and netizen reactions. A lot of them got invested in Wayne Lai’s and David Chiang’s characters, which gave rise to many interesting discussions online. They also found Carlos Chan a refreshing face to watch, so viewers have been very accepting of the show so far.”
Though Daddy Cool has 35 episodes, Amy Wong tried to keep the storyline suspenseful. She specifically pointed out viewers to pay attention to Joel Chan, who plays two different characters in the show.
Joel shared, “One lived in the 1940’s, and another lives in 2018. It’s pretty interesting! I’m very happy with the good ratings that the show’s been getting so far! I hope everyone will continue to support it, and the ratings will continue to climb!”
