TVB costume series House of Harmony & Vengeance premiered on April 30th. In the series, Grace Wong had a scene where she gets raped and revealed half of her chest. A large group of Netizens were shocked to see such scene, and plus the series is airing during family viewing hours, so there will probably be complaints.
TVB series and shows are often getting complaints. Earlier Samantha Ko appeared in a sexy outfit while playing a drifting game on Battle of the Senses received 5 complaints due to the 'flinging breasts' on-screen. On Monday night, it was Grace's turn as she was seen as 'Dai Ho Sau' (her role) in the new series House of Harmony & Vengeance airing at the 8:30pm time slot. Not long after the episode started, the plot was about Grace doing a dance performance and attracted the local magistrate's son (played by Dia Yiu Ming) attention. He said he'll deliver the dance costumes and lured her into the room and forced her on the bed. The scene implied that she was raped. While she was struggling to escape, Grace revealed half of her chest, which was very sexy. Once Netizens saw that scene, they were very surprised and couldn't believe that there was that kind of sexiness in a costume drama. One Netizen praised Grace's nice body figure, while others said the scene was not suitable for family viewing hours. Looks like there will be complaints by the parents.
Producer Nelson Cheung said: "The story sets in the Tang dynasty, the costumes are often low-cut. Also, it was a raping scene, so the artists were just into character and didn't care too much. It was solely for the plot and was no intention to sell the sex appeal. From here on out, there will be some other sexy scenes, for example with Linda Chung. I hope viewers will continue to watch and support."
Aside from Grace Wong's sexy scene becoming a hot topic, some Netizens calls the 'local magistrate' into question, wondering why such official appeared in the Tang dynasty because that government rank only came about in the Song dynasty. Netizens criticized TVB for not doing enough research.
