TVB’s “A Fist Within Four Walls” is the Year’s Hottest Drama
A Fist Within Four Wall <城寨英雄> is bringing all the viewers back to watching TVB. The martial arts drama, starring Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), and Philip Ng (伍允龍), raked in an average of 27 rating points on its first week of release, the highest premiere rating that TVB has seen since 2014. The manhua-inspired kung fu comedy has hoarded a legion of fans online, successfully retaining the viewership from TVB’s last hit, House of Spirits <一屋老友記>.
Four Walls revolves around a team of hot-blooded, heroic kung fu masters who rise against The Association, a criminal organization who has taken control of 1960’s Kowloon Walled City. It is produced by Jazz Boon (文偉鴻), who created 2014’s smash hit Line Walker <使徒行者>. Four Walls has received positive reviews from netizens and critics, most praising the drama’s action-packed story.
TV King and Queen noise is already abuzz for Ruco Chan and Nancy Wu, who star in Four Walls as a pair of bickering friends. In the latest episode, Ruco and Nancy’s relationship take a positive turn, and viewers are excited to see whether or not their friendship will blossom into a heart-warming romance.
But Ruco and Nancy’s onscreen chemistry wasn’t the only thing that viewers have noticed. Nancy’s portrayal of the “feisty and thirsty” landlady Tiu Lan is earning rave reviews all around, praising that her performance in Four Walls is more worthy for Best Actress than her role in last year’s Ghost of Relativity <鬼痛你OT>.
Nancy’s Bottom Comes On Top
In Friday’s episode, Tiu Lan teased Kuen Lo (Ruco) for being jealous of her crush on Ngah Lo (Benjamin), and climbed on top of him, shaking her bottom as she hummed her favorite song. Viewers found Nancy’s performance hilarious, also adding that her bottom has taken quite a prominent onscreen role in the series.
Asking Nancy if Ruco had any biological reactions during the scene, Nancy laughed and said, “Not that easily! But it was a fun scene to do. A lot of our interactions were not scripted so it was really fun.”
Mentioning that many of the characters on the show got to show off their figures, the TV Queen said, “I don’t think my figure is that bad either! A lot of Tiu Lan’s clothes are form-fitting. I also worked out a lot for the role. The men in this show are also very fit.”
Ruco also had his own “exposing scene”. Nancy said, “He poked a hole in his boxers and didn’t tell us! We all cracked up when he took off his pants!” (Did you poke him?) “Of course I did! It’s his ‘pat pat’!”
Producer Jazz Boon commented, “I don’t even know why the director liked to give Nancy so many full shots [of her butt]. Nancy will soon make an appearance in her ‘Black Widow’ costume, and I think that would definitely attract many male viewers! She is very fit!” (Did she add patting to her bottom?) “It is all real.”
