One Bosco Wong photo used in 2 series, TVB's productions are sloppy and cheap
TVB is often criticized of their sloppy productions. The recent high rated series Witness Insecurity and Three Kingdoms RPG (both produced by Lau Kar Ho), were criticized that TVB wasn't serious about the productions. The former used the same Bosco Wong photo in two series, Witness Insecurity and Lives of Omission, while the latter had a large-scale battle scene without a single horse seen in it. No wonder Netizens teased that TVB's cheap!
Last night's episode of Witness Insecurity was about Linda Chung reading the newspaper that had Bosco Wong on the headlines. Bosco, who plays a police officer, was believed to have been waiting for his 8 year missing girlfriend, but the photo used on the headline was discovered by Netizens to have been the same exact one used in Lives of Omission. The difference was one is a cop and the other is a criminal. The latter said the criminal Bosco ("Bai Co") was shot to death, which means the one used in Witness Insecurity is a dead person's photo!
There were a lot of online discussions on TVB's 'one photo used for two series'. Reporters contacted Bosco, who is currently shooting in Mainland, he frankly expressed he hasn't watched the series yet because he's not in HK, but in regards to the criticisms: "I believe its just a small careless mistake, people make mistakes! I hope you all can forgive us." Lead actress, Linda said this is not something artists can control, but each series has a budget, the crew tries their hardest to do the best. It's normal that there are expectations from audience, but at the end of the day, its satisfying enough to have support from the audience.
Also, Linda is shooting one series after another. Lately she's been shooting new series Ferris Wheel Happiness with Jason Chan and has been 'promoted' to a See Jeh (senior), but Linda does not accept this title.
Linda laughed: "I am younger than Jason. Being a little girl forever is good! See Jeh is too old. I believe I'm still a newcomer since it has been less than 10 years that I've been in the industry. I'm still in the learning stage and still have room for improvement. I really need a senior to teach me. If I say I'm a See Jeh that fast, then it's a dead end for me. No one will dare advise me again."
When asked if she feels strain leading Jason? Linda expressed she doesn't, because Jason doesn't need anyone to lead him. Not only is he smart, he has also been in several series already. He's an experienced host as well, so he's definitely better than her in memorizing lines.
