Netizens criticize: 'Tung Boon Sin' runs with a knife in him from morning until night

TVB series Bottled Passion's 2 hour finale on Monday night received 36 points and peaked at 40 points. The success of the finale ratings finally shows the work of producer Lee Tim Shing and the cast paid off. Since the series was scheduled to release during the period of 'ashes' (holidays), it only relied on the public response to maintain the ratings. Yesterday when lead actress Niki Chow learned of the 40 point peak ratings, she couldn't help but say: "There is a miracle after all!" Raymond Wong replied to her and said it's "Tung Boon Sin's miracle!". In the finale, Tsui Sum and Tung Boon Sin didn't have a happy end, but instead left viewers heartbroken. Compared to When Heaven Burns's finale, which was heavily praised, Bottled Passion's ending disappointed viewers with its bad ending.

On the night of Bottled Passion's ending, Tung Boon Sin (Raymond Wong) was stabbed by Ko Yee Kiu (Elaine Yiu). After Boon Sin ran down the streets trying to find someone to rescue Yee Kiu, he went bleeding down the dark empty streets bumping and falling. He ran from morning until night and eventually collapses. It was only until Doctor Yuen (Jack Wu) spots him, he said a few words to him before crawling over to the riverside. He got on the boat and bled to death.

Initially the ending was suppose to move viewers to tears, but Netizens described Tung Boon Sin's 'marathon' with a knife in his abdomen made them cry, unfortunately it was laughing to tears! Tung Boon Sin was suppose to be the most clever character in the series, but unexpectedly by the ending, he turned into the most foolish character. It is ridiculous how the scriptwriter wanted to torment his death and ruin the entire series. One Netizen even wanted producer Lee Tim Shing or the scriptwriter to explain the ending.

Viewers were scolding as they watched the finale, but the ratings peaked at 40 points during the last two minutes when Tsui Sum recalls her meeting with Tung Boon Sin. Raymond Wong apologized on Weibo, expressing he saw many comments online and that many are criticizing the finale. However, he is very grateful of the entire crew for creating the Tung Boon Sin role.
