The 2-hour finale to TVB’s popular series, Bottled Passion <我的如意狼君>, will be aired on Monday, January 2, 2012 in Hong Kong. Due to the poor timeslot assigned to the highly praised Bottled Passion, Producer Lee Tim Sing (李添勝) continued to air his grievances but refrained to disclose the outcome of the plot. Nevertheless, Oriental Daily received a tip regarding ending spoilers for the riveting drama!

After Niki Chow (周麗淇) and Raymond Wong (黃浩然)discover the origins of their families’ past, they decided to elope together. Unfortunately, Raymond was trapped by heiress, Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), who was bent on seeking revenge for betraying her love. The major villainess, Rebecca Chan (陳秀珠), will bite back on Raymond. The finale will conclude with Raymond’s violent and tragic death!

Niki did not know that Raymond had died, thinking that he had only mysteriously disappeared. Although she was advised that Raymond will never return again, she insisted to to wait longly for his return for the rest of her life! The ending will surely be a tearjerker for housewife fans!

On the other hand, Joel Chan’s (陳山聰) evil actions suffered just retribution and he completely lost his family wealth.

Asked whether there will be a sequel planned for Bottled Passion, Producer Lee Tim Sing replied, “Everyone knows that pushed the limits in this series [and did not leave any inconclusive elements unresolved]. There are no plans for part two yet!”

Excerpt from Oriental Daily

Jayne: This article was updated with additional spoilers which emerged in the evening news.

Tragic endings (with justified and logical plot devices) are more memorable and perhaps realistic than everyone forgiving each other and living happily together. Pehaps unfulfilled love stories may be the most memorable of all…. I thought everyone hates the cliche happy “BBQ” endings found too readily these days?

    So he will be killed off by Yi Kiu. Yeah i suppose that’s an alright ending as he completely broke her heart.

    Would be better if he actually fell in love with her and she helps him in order to gain revenge, LOL

    Niki wanting for him until the day she dies and reunites with him…

    I’m hoping Tim Gor might surprised us with a sequel : )…maybe Bun Seen didn’t really died and now it’s Tsui Sum’s turn to wait for him. I’m starting to miss this series already. Great series! the entire cast did an amazing job. Tim Gor did an amazing job, the storyline has a really nice flow, love the way he tells the story, it’s like reading a book. For sure it’s my favorite drama for 2011. They should redo the TVB awards lolz

    ***SPOILERS!!

    The ending for “Bottled Passion” sounds tragic, yet logical, in which Raymond receives payback for his actions. It may be sad, but at least not a “stupid” ending in which characters act out of their normal tendency. A good series or novel has an appropriate climax that is driven by the culmination of past actions of major characters.

    I don’t like how scripts nowadays seem to be more time fillers, characters act irrationally or speak out of their character, and we have episodes of “circus leading” which amount to no major impact on the rest of the series or major conflict resolution. We are diverted and when a show ends in a predictably boring manner or half of the show is filler that leads to no major consequences, we feel cheated.

    However, the ending for “Bottled Passion” doesn’t seem to be like that. Despite its tragic ending, it is a satisfactory ending. And when major story arcs and the conflict are resolved in a conclusive manner, drawing in all the major characters and reverberating upon them appropriately, it will indeed be a satisfactory ending.

    I remember watching TVB 80s adaptations of Jin Yong novels. His novels are such classics because he crafted the details of his stories with great care, utilized his major characters to their max, major actions are driven by logical character motivations etc. There are many scenes in which many “grand scale” gatherings among the wuxia leaders occur, in which former incidents have major impact upon later consequences. Conflicts are resolved in reasonable manner.

      Don’t you wish we have more series with tragic but memorable endings which have significant, logical and satisfying impact on the characters and the series as a whole?

      I.e. The Greed of Man, Looking Back In Anger, Vengeance, The Blood of Good and Evil (not technically a tragic ending but bittersweet on account of what happened to Maggie’s character), The Feud of Two Brothers etc.

      What irked me most about TVB endings nowadays especially those that featured extreme villains is the fact that come the finale the villains suddenly have an attack of conscience and change his or her ways and the other characters tend to forgive him or her readily for all the bad bad things he or she has done throughout the series.

      I mean if it is done tastefully and believably step by step then it is okay. People don’t just change overnight once they started down the path of no return and it takes effort and is extremely difficult.

      Not all manage to turn good again even if they are good to begin with and certainly not through some sudden attack of conscience which just happened to be triggered near the very end of the finale.

        Tragic ending is only good if it’s logical and necessary.

        What irks me most is TVB killing characters just to make the ending ‘memorable’. Tragic for tragic’s sake is not good.

        Dai Si Jie,
        “Don’t you wish we have more series with tragic but memorable endings which have significant, logical and satisfying impact on the characters and the series as a whole?”

        Yes I do. If I were to invest days reading a novel and approximately 20 hours watching a TV series, I would like to reach a satisfying or conclusive ending. I don’t want to watch something which feels like time filler, unnecessary crowd scenes in which every extra has to pitch in their opinion, etc. I would like to watch something crafted with time and care, in which major story arcs are resolved in a creative and resounding manner. Fairy tale endings are used typically for convenience anyway.

        I still remember the sensational manner in which Deric Wan killed Maggie Shiu by pushing her off a moving train in “Looking Back in Anger.” Yes it was a sensational manner of killing, but a well executed and creative murder that took into account timing, situation, character motivations (reveals how calculating Deric was), and a critical turning point for other major characters. The impact of Maggie’s character does not die with her death, her death has much influence upon other characters in the story and drives Deric to further evil actions. Anyhow, I think we agree that a well executed script that weaves all elements together well, including past story arcs that do not seem random, adds to the story rather than zero impact, or worse yet distracts from major themes. Frankly, I don’t wish to invest 20 hours and sit there being irritated and feel as if I were led around a circus ring….

        “What irked me most about TVB endings nowadays especially those that featured extreme villains is the fact that come the finale the villains suddenly have an attack of conscience and change his or her ways and the other characters tend to forgive him or her readily for all the bad bad things he or she has done throughout the series.”

        This plot device is used for convenience, much like fairy tale endings. The sudden attack of conscience that you describe makes no sense and seems to undo all the villain’s past actions indeed. The worst when this sudden attack of conscience occurs within the last 1 or 2 episodes of a show, the character acts completely out of normal tendency and asks the audience for extreme suspension of belief, which is highly unsatisfactory and even frustrating.

        I also hate another plot device that is often used: cancer or sudden terminal illness of character to add “excitement” to the finale and then equally unbelievable miraculous recovery and happy ending. Usually all told within last few episodes of series.

        Or unbelievable attacks of amnesia again used for plot convenience sake.

        Or love triangles that are told rather than felt between the characters and audience. Anyhow, many TVB series have been lacking heart for a long time, both from a storytelling craft perspective and respective acting. I’m glad to hear all the positive feedback that “Bottled Passion” was an exception in this sense.

    I actually don’t mind spoilers since I always imagine them differently in my head before I watch the actual scenes. Therefore, it is still new to me. The ending Niki waiting for Raymond without knowing whether he died or not really reminds me of when Felix waited for Carina in Looking back in Anger… A very sad and open type of ending that makes everyone wonder…. Some like those endings while others don’t…

    • jayne replied:

      HeTieShou,
      I like such endings, in which a character waits for an unfulfilled love, which I find to be quite realistic of real life. People have many unfulfilled regrets, whether in childhood or relationships. Thus a love relationship filled with regret and waiting inside the heart is quite realistic.

      I think many people live a life of regret, of an unfulfilled yearning that needs to be met. However, of course not to the extent that you wait for that love every minute of the day.

      Of course this is also a romantic depiction of love as a central force that may be consuming our lives. I just like the regretful aspect of such long waiting and yearning, of holding something dear to our hearts that makes us not forget even decades later. Of reflecting upon a person, who may no longer be by our side, but still missed in our hearts. I like that people cherish their love and that love is not depicted as easily disposable.

        Jayne,

        You remind me of Leslie’s song “gum sung gum sai”. The lyric- willing to meet up this life, next life embrace again. But this waiting and yearning is quite torturous for the main character. I actually don’t mind bbq endings if I like the couple.

        I remember feeling so upset by the ending of “return of the cuckoo”. Chilam’s chor gor gor was so pitiful in that he didn’t dare to love charmaine’s gwun hou. I hated that she ended up w/ steven ma who knew she loved chor gor gor more. Yes, the producer wanted a more memorable ending but it was utterly unsatisfying b/c such a good character deserves better.

        I personally am ok with those kind of open endings but they aren’t my most favorite since they keep on making me wonder and think a lot.. I guess that is when our imagination works. My mom for example HATES those kinds of ending because she loves completed endings where everything is resolved and all questions are answered. That is just her preference though…

    • jicks replied:

      I thought exactly the same thing as I was watching it.

      As a huge, HUGE fan of the Korean series Bad Guy, I was a little apprehensive when I started watching Bottled Passion, and truth be told there are glaring similarities— e.g. the main guy being a child orphan thing, being mistakened as the real illegitimate son thing, the coming back to take revenge on the entire family with a different name thing, the seducing of the older sister thing, the playing around with the younger sister thing, the evil concocting mother etc etc… I mean, even the ending drew eery parallels— but at the same time, there were positive aspects to Bottled Passion which set it apart. For instance, I liked that they made the main actor and actress be destined lovers from a young age (which you could argue is a classic early 90’s Korean drama cliche but hey, whatevs~~) and I also loved the existence of the character Low Yat- both these aspects really brought out a living warmth in Raymond Wong’s character which was missing from Kim Nam Gil’s character in Bad Guy. Tung Boon Sin was much more in-the-flesh than Kim Nam Gil’s Shim Gun Wook.

      I want to mention that I think everyone did a tremendous role in portraying their characters in Bottled Passion. Yes, Niki & Raymond have amazing chemistry in this series together (OMG the kiss in episode 20! ZE KISS IN EPISODE 20! *drops to knees* *passes out*) but I also want to point out how effortlessly awesome Rebecca Chan Sau Chu and Eric Lee were. Also, Raymond Chow & Claire Yiu were perfect in their roles, too.

    I have been watching this from episode 6 – could kick myself for missing the first 5 episodes but fortunately I got the gist of the storyline, how Raymond was harmed as an orphan by the evil Rebecca Chan etc… This is the second drama I have enjoyed on TVB in the year 2011. It is getting worse. The other drama I enjoyed this year was with Laughing Gor and Fala Chan. I hope that Raymond gets some kind of award when TVB Anniversary comes on at the end of 2012. I thought the plot and storyline was very good and all the actors did an amazing job. The ones you should love, I loved and the villains you should hate, I hated. Rebecca Chan is one of TVB oldest actresses and did an excellent job as the evil wife. I hated the younger daughter who was just a spoilt brat – probably the worst I have seen on TVB so far. The only one I was a bit disappointed was the one who played the elder son. I have seen him in Sisters of Pearl and he was such a gentle man. To me, he just doesn’t seem to be very convincing as a greedy, power hungry, evil villain. Elaine Yiu I have never liked anyway no matter what roles she plays. Nikki played the role well but she is not one of my favourite stars. I felt that she lacked chemistry with Raymond and maybe another actress would have suited him better. One more comment, I wished that it was slightly longer, i.e. at least 30 episodes rather than 21. I cannot wait for Monday to watch the double episodes although it will make me very sad indeed. Luckily its only a story and not real….

    Ok call me crazy but I really dislike tvb endings. The endings are never really crystal clear.

    Nearly every tvb drama usually ends sad, or a relationship is broken apart and at the end there is a slightest hint of a possible reunion mind you it is always at least twenty years later. The list could go on. Years ago there was a drama with Charmaine and Gordon, it was something about a wine making drama. In the end, Gordon is presumed to be dead and Charmine returns to her job as a ferry driver. She thinks she sees his appearence in the distance. That was a surprise for me that tvb decieded to have a happy ending. From what I remember, alot of people complained about the ending where Gordon dies so they had to rewrite it.

    I think there are several missing plot holes that tvb will utilize if they have a sequel. I was in the middle of writing my paper but from what I saw, Joel left Jail and went to some country where he is supposed to get influence and get his mother out.

    If they are going to have a sad ending, then don’t drag it out like they did for this series. I mean pretty much 3/4 of the last episode was based on Raymond’s death and even then it doesn’t really flat out say that he was gone. Why did he refuse help from the doctor? I mean if he didn’t want to hurt Niki then he should have survived. For him to completely disappear without a trace was more heartbreaking for her.

    I don’t mind that the writer/producer is going to retire. Maybe we can have some good endings. I don’t think good endings are necessarily corny either. I mean for this couple to be separated time and time ago, I knew it was too good to be true because they were going to get married the second last episode. They’ve got to get some kind of action to fill the last episode.

    How the hell Tong Bun Sin stabbed with massive blood lost… ended up by going to the river to catch the boat and laid there dying just to avoid Tsui Sum. Yes its tragic and sad but, why go to the river boat? He could have died on the street….

    UGH!!!!

    Stupid TVB writers; just let Tong Bun Sin died on the street and Tsui Sum normed him and remember him; simple, tragic, sad ending.

    Overall, the series is GOOD, except the ending.

        Yeah, WHY go the river boat? To avoid hurting Tsui Sum? Really? The ending was good until that river boat part, not so logical but he sure died beautifully.

For some reason I have a feeling that Tim Gor has plan for a sequel because he left a lot room for the story to go on, if you noticed on the last episode when the old man mentioned bun seen…notice how his best friend had that smirk on his face like he knows something. Anyways, TVB, please don’t piss of Tim Gor so he can give us a sequel.

    I re-watch the ending, they dont really need the boat scene…Tung Boon Sin could have disappear after Dr. Yuen Yau Hin gets help and drifted off to street….

    That ending, could be the ending and I would be satisfy. Even the running time is short for this very last episode; the boat scene was really not needed.

    UGH! Lee Tim Sing mess up the ending. I dont know if the TVB Jade Hong Kong version could delete that boat scene in time for the airing; TONIGHT. This really just mess up. First and Last episode is really most important and really dont SCREW UP. That ending just screw me over; it was great series! Im just surprise to see it ended like that for a sad, remembrance for these two people.

        He had to do the boat scene or else if he died on the street and his body would of been found. he knows how much she loves him he doesn’t want to see her hurt, so this way it’s kinda like his last magic trick (miracle) for her…does that make sense to you? But little does he know, he didn’t died…in fact he was rescued by a fisherman…lolz that’s my version : ). Btw, can someone please tell me what the newspaper says (the paper that the little sister was reading) I don’t know what it says but I’ve a feeling it has something to do with the sequel lolz…I’m just desperate at this point lolz.

        I know the feeling… I just can not accept this ending. Either hes alive, dead, or disappear. The third choice, disappear was bad, because how the hell he has the strength to go the river boat with the amount of blood loss he has. UGH!

        This is why I advocate is pay an editor and remove the boat scene so that the viewers think Tong Boon Sin really disappear somewhere… leaves an “good” open ending. Im not advocating a sequel, just want a ending a memorable good series.

      He can’t just disappear like that. Must explain why. Why not just end at ep 20? Give them a wedding. Why is every Lee Tim Sing series except for safe guards is so damn sad ending? Like No Regrets, yes they got together but had only 8 years together. However his main characters’ love story is rather romantic though.

        Well, how do you want Tung Boon Sin ends:

        A. Disappear off the street

        B. Die on the street

        C. Yee Kiu and Tung Boon Sin lay down on the office room dying with no help until it arrives.

        D. Tung Boon Sin bleeding to death on the street and Dr. Yuen Yau Hin or even his homeboy Luo Yat saves him by carry him to the hospital… which he is alive & married Tsui Sum at the end.

        E. Tung Boon Sin bleeding to death on the street and Dr. Yuen Yau Hin or even his homeboy Luo Yat saves him by carry him to the hospital… which he died on the bed before Tsui Sum arrives and never get to say the last words.

        F. Tung Boon Sin did not go to the office that day; he married Tsui Sum; BBQ ending.

        G. No changed in the ending….

        I choose scenario (A) because, its going to be open ending whether he is alive or dead…. maybe pressing a “mini” sequel of where the hell he is act and how did he reconnect to Tsui Sum again if he is alive or really a sad death.

    • loungegirl replied:

      There was no need for him to sacrifice – they both could have went to the hospital. And noone else saw him bleeding on the street??

      Agreed – the boat scene was completely unnecessary and ruined what could have been a perfectly sad but satisfactory ending. I don’t mind that Tung Bun Seen died but he is ‘full of miracles and tricks’ – his death deserved some mystery and hopefulness. Since he didn’t want Tsui Sum to see him die, having his body ‘disappear’ would have made sense for his character (no need to spell out where he died) while leaving some uncertainty and hope for Tsui Sum. The “tragic” boat scene was nothing but a drag and the repeated “Last life, this life and next life” words were just too corny. The Meeting Place, although typical and predictable, was enough to end the story. A great drama nonetheless… my favourite for 2011.

        ***SPOILERS IN THIS COMMENT***

        I agree with your thoughts on leaving a bit of mystery around Boon Sin’s fate but I don’t think it was the boat scene that ruined things for me, I also wasn’t such a fan of the flashback scene when they showed Yuen Yau Hin run into Boon Sin lying on the concrete streets in a dark corner with the knife sticking out from his stomach bleeding to death.

        I think the boat scene more or less served as the poetic touch, after all, Lee Ho vanished all those years ago into the waters, so it was only fitting that Boon Sin did the same.

Kevin tried to hard to make it look like he’s not trying but the outcome was unnatural for the most part. What’s her face was good but not memorable.

    I think the ending was ok, however full of flaws. First why wasn’t there any people on the street? It was bright so i assume it was in the morning/afternoon so it seems strange.

    Furthermore why was TBS running away from the help he could have gotten from the people he meet to take the boat to his death?

    The boat scene was a nice metaphor, however it just not logical explanation considering he didn’t knew if he could be saved or not.

    Conclusion: he died due to the plot device and wasn’t given a proper chance to survive to make it more tragic.

    Perhaps they will do a sequel in the “next life” i.e. modern series 2012 a comedy that would be fun, LOL

    I think ending is ok. We all know it will be a sad ending. Tim gor write this very well. It gives us some room to think about it. Is he really died? Or will they meet again at the next life.

    The point is: the ending is memorable! It leaves us a deep impression.

    Two things is really stupid:

    – there was nobody a the street (????)
    – the whole boat thing is way over the top. But I also understand the point. I think he will create a memorable situation to say tun boon sin few words: ‘see you next life’

      By the way:

      Outstanding performance:

      2. Rebecca Chan (very good actress, her eyes is on fire!!!)
      3. Elaine Yiu (good for second line)
      4. Eric Lee (love is chemistry between hin & Raymond)

      About Niki:
      First, I was shocking that Tim gor “write” this drama for her. So, I was exciting, will I be impressed. I think she did this quit ok. But, I think there are another actress can replace her. If that, she is replaceable.

      I love tsu sam and tun boon sin characters. Raymond can’t be replace. But niki, I think she is not memorable enough.

      Ps: don’t you think guys that the face of niki is way too big next to Raymond?!? Her face is bigger when she lying at him, looks really weird?! O_o

    SPOILERS!!!

    Ep 20 was brilliant. Love the ending for the villains. But ep 21 was a complete waste of time and one single episode made the entire sries darn stupid. Oi! This is 1920s not like ancient China! You got stabbed you go to hospital! NO! He had to stagger almost entire night until morning, went onto a boat and die! When for that 10 hours or so he could have staggered to the hospital and save his own life! I don’t get it! What a stupid ending!! Drama for drama sake! At least it isn’t Lo Yat! Why does TVB have to spoil such a good series with this stupid last episode?!

    “The finale will conclude with Raymond’s violent and tragic death!”

    It is tragic for the sheer stupidity of it. How can a half dying man with a knife in his stomach can wander around guangzhou and no one knew? NO ONE KNEW!! Drama for drama sake.

    I was really feeling for Elaine Yiu’s character, she was just treated as a pawn by her mother and then TBS in their own games without any regard to her own feelings. She really loved TBS and willingly gave up everything for him, but he seemed to have no remorse about it at all until he was confronted. So, I kind of quite liked the scene when she stabbed him (! :)), with her having already poisoned herself, as it seemed like there could be a just payment for all the hurt that he had caused her, and a nice final resolution. I still wanted him to survive and live however!!!!

    Also, I agree with everyone else about the stupid wandering through the streets scene and no one seeing him all day. The man who saved Elaine’s character could have easily saved TBS as well, there didn’t need to be a sacrifice – they just needed one or two rickshaw drivers to take them both to the hospital. I mean, what was the point of him running of like that? Why couldn’t Lo Yat find him, just follow the trail of blood, right?! How could TBS have gotten up so quickly and run off out of reach of Jack Wu’s character before he returned, when he looked almost dead already when Jack Wu found him?! Also, why did he keep crying out milk sweet’s name but then make no effort to go to her but to the lake/river instead, which I assume was much further away!! And as for that whole ring business, with Jack Wu bringing milk sweet back her ring and giving her hope when he knew there was none, wouldn’t you just punch him for not saying anything for 6 years and leaving milk sweet with false hope?!

    …ah, anyway, I love Raymond Wong, he he. I hope to see him in lots more good roles in year to come. He seems like a really nice guy in real life too. I like Nikki Chow but I don’t know about her in this film at all. I felt throughout that she seemed strangely out of place in the film and there was no chemistry between her and TBS at all. I feel her acting style is just being herself in someone else’s shoes, rather than becoming someone else and understanding quite different mindset, which I think requires more skill. So I think she does better in modern dramas. But just my opinion of course.

    Still, best film series I’ve seen in years. Great fast moving plot and gripping story line.

      Elaine doesn’t deserve him, she’s a greedy spoil brat just like her mom and the rest of her family. She’s not in love with bun seen, she’s only in love with the illusion he created for her. She’s a shallow character, you really think she would still be in love with him seeing his entire body is full of scars or that he’s not truly from a wealthy background? I think not, so in the end she should of thank him for giving her freedom and own up to what her and her family did to him.

So, he didn’t want to be saved because he’d rather give that miracle to her for when she needs it. Kevin who? Raymond should of won my favorite character 2011 or the decade for that matter : )

      I think he meant to go to her with he just left his office. But, then, he’s too weak to move anymore and dropped down at the place where Dr.Yuen eventually found him. By that time, he knew he couldn’t make it, so, he gave up the idea of seeing Tsui Sum and instead hide from her. But, why he suddenly has the strength to crawl to the river, I don’t know.

    The ending really spoilt it for me – if he dies it’s fine but does he have to die in this manner?

    1. crawling all over the place while having a knife stuck to his side
    2. NO ONE is on the streets except for that young guy and the Doctor for some reason
    3. He can crawl all over the place for hours (shown from light till dark) but he can’t crawl to a hospital?
    4. He was bleeding like crazy and he was so ‘selfless’ asked the guy to save the gal first
    5. What’s up with crawling into a boat? Like he won’t even let the girl whom he supposedly waited for for decades even say goodbye??
    6. Sigh, I have to say it’s a stupid ending not because he died/ disappeared but because of the points above.
    7. If they want it to be so ‘dramatic’ perhaps he could have crawled to dinner and somehow covered up his wound and then die after taking one bite of the famous rice with lard? and one piece of Tsui Sam’s famous soy sauce chicken? at least die full instead of hungry …???

    I really upset with last episode of Bottled Passion. I don’t mind if Tung die at d end of d day, but he die in a stupid way n not logic at all~
    If tvb want to make die romantic scene, pls make it more logical.
    1. Tung crawl all over the place n nobody help except one guy?
    2. Lo Yat is very good in investigation n he suddenly become dumb n can’t locate Tung?
    3. For Tung to crawl to boat, it take few hours and it’s far away fr town area, before he reach the boat, he already die halfway
    4. No one on the street walking when Tung full of blood. tvb, pls dun tell me that day is new year tht y all shop close n everybody out for holiday.

    So, the last episode doesn’t make any sense at all. I here to put in comment to hope tht tvb will listen to the viewers point. We complain because we care…
