Solid Ratings for “Deep in the Realm of Conscience”
As one of most anticipated series of 2018, TVB’s grand production costume drama Deep In The Realm of Conscience <宮心計2深宮計> managed to premiere at 29.3 points, becoming this year’s highest rated premiere.
Averaging over 400 million viewers in Mainland China as well, the cast and crew finally let out a sigh of relief and urged viewers to stay tuned for the future episodes as they offer even more intensity and action.
In the most recent episodes, the Crown Prince, Steven Ma (馬浚偉), uncovered Alice Chan‘s (陳煒) habit of abusing her powers as a princess to torture a palace maid for over 20 years. However, coming to Alice’s defense was her husband, who then became a scapegoat for her crimes and was executed by Steven. Vowing to take revenge against Steven and his wife Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Alice causes an uproar and schemes behind the scenes. Alice sends Chrissie Chau (周秀娜) to win the favor of Steven after Nancy’s sudden miscarriage.
When talking about the positive reception the series has received so far, Nancy expressed, “Really? It’s been a while since I’ve heard numbers like that. I’m so happy everyone’s watching – congratulations, to [Producer Mui Siu Ching (梅小青)].
Some reporters with good memory asked about the promise she and Steven made last time about releasing a photo from the bed scene if the series hit 30 points. Immediately, Nancy said, “We have to get to 30 points first. If we get 30 points, tell Steven to upload the one he has first.”
Disclosing that Mui Siu Ching will host a big celebration if viewership numbers hit 1 billion in Mainland China, Steven said viewers should continue watching as the palace troubles worsen. Steven said, “The scheming gets scarier as the story progresses. Nancy and I will face a lot of obstacles that eventually takes a huge toll on our relationship. There are a lot of characters to be introduced as well, so everyone should continue supporting us.”
