*SPOILERS ALERT!*

The finale for TVB series, Wish and Switch <換樂無窮> was aired yesterday. The audience complained about the series showing a death scene during the Lunar New Year holiday period. Producer Lam Chi Wah (林志華) explained, “At the time of filming, we did not realize that the drama will be released during the New Year. After that fact was known, we already made editing adjustments to dilute the death scene. The scene where Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) was stabbed was not explictly shown on screen. In addition, the death scene was broadcast 7 days after Lunar New Year’s day; hopefully the audience understands that the scene was necessary for the plot. If everyone truly feels uncomfortable, then I apologize!”

At the hospital, while attempting to ressurect Myolie’s life, Johnson Li (李思捷) pressed his hands heavily on her chest. Netizens were outraged by Johnson touching Myolie’s chest in the scene. Producer Lam explained that adequate preparations were made during the filming and praised Myolie for her professionalism, “It was Myolie who offered that it was okay for Johnson Li to place his hands on her chest. She was very professional.” (Johnson Li benefitted from the scene?) “It was not on purpose!”

      You’re so right. They complain about EVERYTHING. Its TVB’s fault. They don’t have to answer to every complaint. Everyone wants to be heard, how can you satisfy everyone. Sometime they complain because someone they know complained so they all jump on the bandwagon. What’s this in chinese? Follow wind? yeah.

      Hongers needs to lighten up. Anyone in real life would of react the same way as what’s his face. Having said that, I tried really hard to like this series, but I couldn’t…the storyline was horrible, the acting was more for stage than TV. Johnson Li is not leading man material, and I’m not a fan of his acting. He has a natural “yueng soy” face that when he was acting as an nice loving husband/person I didn’t buy it. Myolie overacted as usuall, trying to hard to be funny and cute but failed. Overall, this series is a skip.

        Oh, the only good thing about this show is that bratty fat kid. He was so natural that you forget he’s acting sometimes. I find that I got the most laughs from him, he upstaged all the main actor whenever he did a scene with them, you never know for sure what comeback lines he has next. good job kiddo!

      so true… i have never heard a drama where they dont have complaints -.- if they have a happy ending- they say the ending is too fake and cheesy… if its a sad ending- they will say it’s bad luck……

      whenever we read a review, they will say something like “this drama peaked at 36 point” and then “with only 4 complaints”…. seriously- the number of complaints have become a scale of how good the drama is -_-

    I think the ending would be much better if they had not edited out the scene where Myolie was stabbed. It was kind of sudden/out of the blue, that she was wheeled into the ambulance.

    Hmm… I don’t really have a problem watching a death scene during the Lunar New Year holiday, in fact I’ve watched quite a few death scenes on TV this New Year.

    Also, if Myolie does not have a problem with her breasts touched, why should we? And there is no guarantee that the audience wouldn’t complain if Johnson had not done that. I mean, wouldn’t you complain if the CPR is not done in a more realistic manner (in this case, where his hands should be)I mean… would you not complain too if he had his hands on her belly to do CPR?

    I think the ending tied up the story but truthfully, I think the narrative has been flailing for the last 5 episodes. Some of the scenes were really hard to watch (like Myolie seducing Johnson).

    I agree with too much complaining. What is a grieved desperate husband supposed to do? Shake her violently by the shoulders? Perform heart compressions on her stomach?

    I don’t get what is the big deal about him touching her chest?? They are ONLY acting… If she did not allow it, it would show how unprofessional she is.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      I also wanted to add that other actresses have to do even more than that and they aren’t complaining nor did the audience. Therefore,why are they complaining now??? It just doesn’t make sense…

        She can do the Bollywood way. Love scene means the guy rubbing his face on her entire body, everything except kissing. That is not unprofessional but hypocritical.

    i kinda thought there would have been a twist since it was supposed to be a comedy series, but i guess the ending fit with the story

    I neither liked or disliked the ending, but was rather confused why there was another Myolie who likes to eat orange candy appeared on the streets. Is it due to the magical website? Or is it not meant to be understood?

    There’s really nothing wrong with Johnson doing CPR for Myolie if it was fitting for the story and it this case, I didn’t see anything forced. As long as Myolie is alright in the act and it brings effect for the story, that should what matters most.

    Btw, was it only me or was there really a tear that rolled down Myolie’s cheek when she was dead? At the moment, I thought she was still alive and touched by how her family has changed.

      I think the ending was meant to give hope that might really be Myolie? Maybe the magical website saw that he finally learned his lesson and decided to give Myolie back to Johnson? I think it’s for the viewer to interpret what happened.

      The “Myolie” you saw was not Johnson’s wife. I guess she’s another person other wise wouldnt she go running into his arms? And he didnt press the button so the website hasnt got anything to do with it.

      Its kinda like the ending to FH2 where Sam meets Sharon who reminds him of Ding Ding with the hair, shoes etc
      i guess indicating that though something bad has happen xx was able to move on and possibly find love again with this character that is similar to their original love

      So kinda giving hope so its not a complete downer ending.

    I liked the series but I think I expected something else based on descriptions I read. I thought it was mainly about Myolie and Selena switching places, but that didn’t happen for a few episodes and they switched back around episode 16 or 17 when I didn’t think it was going to happen until the very end. In a way, it ended better than I thought it would because they didn’t take the easy way out and make everything happy again and showed the consequences of greed, but I think they also forgot that the series was supposed to be a comedy!

    I didn’t love the ending, but I didn’t hate it either. I was so glad they didn’t just end it with the audience not knowing if Johnson pressed the keyboard in the end and that they showed what happened after the credits.
    I guess I am surprised that Johnson tried to do CPR because I already knew that they would get the typical TVB complaints over it, but I’m glad they did it because it was realistic.

      Haha, me too! I was so close to just closing my screen when the credits started rolling, but since this is the last time I’ll be hearing the theme song, I minus well just let it roll. It was strange to have the credits roll, then TVB finish their ending though.

        I was totally expecting them to do it because it’s kinda typical of TVB to do that! I was like you- I usually close it but I just let the credits roll and I’m glad I did because I didn’t expect more to be shown.

      Another series which this one reminded me of where they forgot it was supposed to be a comedy: To Catch The Uncatchable with Dayo Wong, Ada Choi and Michael Tong. That ending really came out of left field as if another different writer did the script for the final episode and did not bother to find out whether the series was a comedy or a tragic drama. they re-shoot an alternate ending but even that was a WTF ending that actually serve to ask more questions than provide closure.

    Comedy turned sour. Molie totally overacted and even at a point became quite annoying. The series started off with a good concept but the actors/actresses lacked chemistry. No buy in from me. ‘ding ding ding’ ~ Next please!

    The series is okay for past time..don’t expect much from it since it’s not a grand production. I think Hkers should take it easy, it’s just a comedy series with happy ending (most ppl already knew it)

    Chey, why netizens blast Johnson Li? It’s not as if he can freely touch her chest if the director/ script did not call for it and the actress did not allow it.

    It wasn’t even like he was pervy and has salty hands more than he should…

    We all know Myolie is a dedicated actress. This is not a sex scene but a death/ rescue scene.

      To catch the uncatchable was a comedy?
      D.I.E was a comedy?
      When did TVB start disallow dying from comedies? Lame storyline, but TVB always makes people die in endings.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        But there’s no lesson learned? I mean what’s the point of them switching back and forth and then she died? From reading the comments, a new myolie reappeared? Or she didn’t die? Or alternate universe? What?

        And why is he doing CPR in a hospital where doctors can zap her?

      • KangNam replied:

        @Funn Lim
        I guess the lesson learnt would be value what you have and not be greedy.

        Her Character died because previously Johnson (via Myolie’s brother) wished for success? knowledge? (i forget the exact wish) but he had to give up 20 years of his life/youth (so he was 30 now his body is of a 50 yrold) – long story short he ended being greedy and a monster therefore Myolie wished for Johnson’s 20 years of youth to come back but in order for that to happen she had to give up her life.

        And the “New” Myolie im pretty sure is meant to be someone else.
        Its kinda like the ending to FH2 where Sam meets Sharon who reminds him of Ding Ding with the hair, shoes etc
        i guess indicating that though something bad has happen xx was able to move on and possibly find love again with this character that is similar to their original love

        And the whole CPR thing; Doctors already pronounced Myolie dead but Johnson couldnt accept so "attempted" to save her.
