As the ratings for Beauty at War <金枝慾孽(貳)> dipped to 18 ratings points and lost disinterested viewers, Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) reportedly regretted filming for the drama. In news reports, Sheren was quoted to have criticized the production team for not having the script ready and TVB in not including her in promotional events for Beauty at War. Tired of tabloids’ distortion of her statements, Sheren fired back in a Weibo post yesterday.

Sheren recalled that when War and Beauty <金枝慾孽> first aired nine years ago, tabloids had also accused her of not getting along with female costars. Sheren criticized the press for sensationalizing recent reports, “Nine years ago and nine years later, the media have put [me] on the cusp, matching the harem tactics of Consort Yu in the drama.  Consistent with the power struggles of the palace, [the press] discredited the female cast by claiming they fought over awards.”

Sheren added that the Hong Kong media was playing out rumors which are damaging to the cast, “The sequel speaks about rumors capable of committing invisible murders. Outside of the series, there are also [rumors of me] refusing to participate in promotional events because of poor ratings, adding intentional insult to injury, and not getting along with [the female cast]…. The theme of Beauty at War is so realistic; if it cannot be understood, then wouldn’t [the viewers] have fallen to evil intentions?”

      Script writers need to be more creative, didn’t like the story with too much Qing era stuff on tv, obviously cheap to use the existing Qing wardrobe.
      Production need to invest, not boring revised old stuff which isn’t any new to viewers.

    Though the theme of Beauty at War is realistic; if it does not mean that everyone would understand. Basically the media tends to magnify news but i dont think they have evil intentions in the first place to discredit it. It’s a double edge sword… When the ratings were high in the first season 9 years ago… It was highly promoted too by the media.

    Hong Kong media has the power to make or break a drama and celebrities. It doesn’t help that they have bad intentions. To make it worse, majority of their audience are ignorant and love “bad” gossips. The media wants money so they report the stuff that sells. Should I fear for humanity?

    Actually one shouldn’t compare ratings these days and nine years ago. Nine years ago, I will rush home to catch an episode of my favourite drama series. Now, if I miss it, there is catch-up tv; it is a available on the Internet within hours of airing. Technology has changed how audience watch their tv programs. I think a better gauge of how well a drama is received these days should be the amount of discussion it generates (think WHB). Ratings are passé.

    I wonder if the pap are frustrated scriptwriters when I read the stuff about Florinda HO and Aaron Kwok’s breakups – it read better than most soap operas or novels. I really think collecting all the decades of HK celeb news like Yiu Wai and Cecil Chao to Nicholas Tse’s romances to today would make really good fiction.
