Airing to positive reception, My Unfair Lady <不懂撒嬌的女人> averaged 25 viewership ratings points last week, with episode 15 peaking at 28 points. Hosting a mini celebration to announce the results, over 120 cast, crew, and TVB upper management members attended. Frankie Lam (林文龍), Jessica Hsuan (宣萱), Vincent Wong (王浩信), Samantha Ko (高海寧), and TVB Deputy General Manager, Felix To (杜之克) were present.
Pleased with the overall results of My Unfair Lady, Felix said the series is becoming a phenomenon. Thanking Felix, Jessica exclaimed, “If it weren’t for you who told me to come back, I wouldn’t even be here.”
Saving – Vincent Wong’s Breakthrough
Receiving praise for his character “Saving” throughout the series, Vincent Wong was seen yelling at his big boss Andrew Yuen (袁文傑) in a recent episode. Both the intensity of the scene and Vincent’s anger was compared to 2000’s At The Threshold of an Era <創世紀> where Sunny Chan‘s (陳錦鴻) character was seen screaming at Gallen Lo (羅嘉良).
Admitting that he did take a look at Sunny’s previous performance and used it as study material, Vincent said he was glad that viewers enjoyed the scene. When asked if there would be an alternate happy ending for his character, Vincent revealed there would be only one ending for the series, but said viewers would be surprised.
On the other hand, Samantha Ko was thoroughly surprised but pleased when her character was hated by viewers. Samantha said she was happy about the deep impact the character had, and hopes to receive equally challenging roles in the future.
No Sequel for “My Unfair Lady”
With the finale airing on May 28, Jessica and Frankie were asked about the possibility of appearing in a sequel to My Unfair Lady. Although Jessica expressed that it would dependent on the quality of the script, she believes sequels usually end up being major flops and it is best to end the story at a high point.
Frankie joked that Jessica is too expensive to hire for any future sequels. He exclaimed, “The selling point of this series is Jessica. TVB was able to hire her so everyone should treasure this. Looking over at Jessica’s bemused look, Frankie continued, “Her price is at Hollywood’s level, and my price is more like Plaza Hollywood. I’ll film even if I’m not paid, but the problem is Jessica’s pay.”
When asked if the sequel could take the form of a movie instead, Frankie said that would be a good idea.
