Netizens Praise Mandy Wong and Chin Ka Lok’s Bath Scene in “The Fixer”

The first episode of TVB’s new crime series The Fixer <拆局專家> aired to positive reviews last evening. In the supposedly action-packed drama, many viewers were surprised and did not expect to see a romantic bath scene in which Mandy Wong (黃智雯) and Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) share a passionate kiss in a bathtub full of rose petals.

In a scene near the latter half of the first episode, Mandy suddenly walks into the bathroom in her bathrobe and begins to undress, while Ka Lok is enjoying a rose petal bath. She soon joins him in the bathtub where they hugged and chatted intimately.

The scene speaks of how Mandy is enraged at her mother for publicly announcing on television that she is looking for a son-in-law for $800 million HKD. However, Ka Lok treats the situation as a joke, and Mandy is determined to punish him for making fun of things. She even says, “I don’t want to punish you financially. I want to punish your body.” Mandy then initiates an intense kiss with Ka Lok.

Many netizens were quick to compliment the artistes for their natural acting skills. One netizen remarked it was surprising to see Ka Lok go all-out in a romantic scene. On the other hand, netizens praised Mandy, who frequently received tomboyish roles in the past, for her ability to exhibit a sexy aura when needed. In general, The Fixer garnered several positive reviews on its first night of broadcast, in which the bath scene stole the limelight.

  1. I do not see the bug deal about this scene. It was at best okay. They don’t have chemistry at all imo. Their lovey-dovey seemed force. I usually like Kandy but thus far I’m not feeling it, her acting or her character. She’s rather confusing. Is she suppose to be smart, badass, sexy, aloof, or what? If it’s all of the above, that’s even worse because she’s half-assed in all imo. She’s not very convincing in any. Then again, it’s pretty early in the series. Give her time to grow I guess.

    1. @jjwong Agreed it was not worthy of a compliment. I was in the middle of doing something and I caught a glimpse of the bath scene and just went back to what I was doing. Also, she exhibited sexy aura, I probably would I looked again.

  2. I don’t understand the hype either over that scene.  Those netizens must have nothing better to do than to get worked up over such a scene.

    As for the series itself – eh, can’t really get into it.  First episode had potential and even second episode was ‘decent’, but at the third episode, it starts to fall apart in terms of plot/story.   And I’m sorry, but I’m really not feeling it from the cast – no chemistry between any of the cast members and also the acting is very raw…I feel like they’re just going through the motions and reciting dialogue from the script.

    Speaking of the script….I know I’m probably being too nit-picky here, since I’ve been watching HKTV’s series and got too used to the tight, meaningful dialogue in their scripts, but throughout the first 3 episodes of The Fixer, I already spotted over a dozen script issues where the dialogue is redundant or contradictory or doesn’t make sense — and I’m not even consciously trying to find issues, since I’m actually doing other things while I’m ‘watching’….goes to show how poorly TVB’s scripts are written nowadays.

    Looks like I will be giving up on this series sooner than I thought….
