New TVB drama, Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>, is praised for its exciting and fast pace. Revolving around the Hong Kong Police’s Narcotics Bureau, the drama will feature narcotics busts, dangerous situations, and numerous controversial scenes involving Kate Tsui’s (徐子珊) “Drug Queen” character.
It was reported that Kate Tsui’s relationship with eye doctor Marvin Tse (謝偉業) is over after dating for only six months, dashing her marriage dreams. Kate may be stumbling in her love life, but acting career has never been so bright. Kate abandons her usual modern and pretty looks to portray a drug addict in Highs and Lows. Her portrayal of such a standout character gives her the potential to win the TV Queen title.
Kate Goes Naked…Partially
In the drama, Kate becomes a police informant so she can earn enough money for her sick brother. In one scene, while trying to eavesdrop for vital information, Kate gets trapped inside a cold storage room and passes out due to hypothermia. Her savior is none other than Raymond Lam (林峯), who with Ella Koon’s (官恩娜) help, removes Kate’s clothes and dips her in warm water. To please fans, Raymond even performs a mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and like in other TVB shows, performs a bear hug to share his body heat with Kate.
Kate put in much effort and research in her portrayal of her character, “Pat Chan”. She said, “My character has a sad life, and later on she will become a drug addict, and has to inject drugs with syringes. I spent a lot of time watching movies revolving around drug addicts, and even spent some time at rehab center to watch how real drug addicts react and behave.”
MC Jin Covered in Feces
Rapper turned actor, MC Jin (歐陽靖), portrays Kate’s sidekick who has a crush on her. He works as a parking attendant at a bar. Since Kate’s father is a drug criminal and she despises drugs, MC Jin attempts to stop drug transactions from occurring at his workplace, but ends up getting beaten by a triad leader, portrayed by popular veteran actor, Koo Ming Wah (古明華).
MC Jin was upset with the small reward Kate got for her job as informant, so for revenge he decided to pull a prank on Raymond by pouring a bucket of feces-laden grasshoppers (an old Chinese prank) all over Raymond. However, Raymond locks MC Jin inside a toilet with the grasshopper bucket instead.
Ella Koon Nearly Killed Trying to Save Witness
Due to her carelessness, Ella almost causes the death of a witness in a case. While a suspect Poon Fong Fong (潘芳芳) and the police are in a standoff at the edge of a building, Raymond manages to distract Poon. Ella then jumps from the water tank to stop the suspect from pushing a witness off the edge of the building. While the witness was saved, Ella slips and ends up almost dying. However, she was saved by her secret crush, Raymond, who manages to grab Ella before she falls to her death.
The police set up a trap aimed at billionaire philanthropist and drug lord, Lee Shing Cheong (李成昌), but he manages to escape. The senior staff of the police force suspect Lee was informed by someone inside the agency so they decide to recruit Raymond and Ella to expose the corrupt cop.
