Yesterday Kate was in Shanghai to attend an auto race event. She accepted an interview over the phone and expressed she's grateful to have everyone's attention. She said: "Don't be upset. When I was filming that scene, I gave it all I got and followed what the director told me to do. The edited version gave audience room for some imagination. After all, there are limitations on television. Actually, the message behind the whole scene is the most important. We want to promote anti-drugs and show what drugs can lead to as a consequence. So that scene just touched on it. I think it's good to leave some room for imagination. Aiya! It's not nice to see me take off my clothing either! (You just turned into a victim out of nowhere?) Didn't think about it. (Netizens praised your acting improved a lot?) I'm very happy. Well then, I'll have to drive faster in the race, hope everyone will watch until the finale!" As a result, Kate ended the race in 5th place, her time was 3 minutes 14 seconds. First place was Chin Kar Lok, 3 minutes 7 seconds.
Producer Lam Chi Wah expressed it is related to the television scale, and to take the audience's feelings into account. They didn't want the audience to feel disturbed, therefore how that scene was explained was reasonable. He said: "We didn't cut that scene, Netizens have been focused too much on the gang rape scene, that they are thinking too much. We did say before that the story will indirectly explain that the rape happened, but won't show the process. (But Fala Chen's bra-revealing scene was broadcasted!) That scene won't make people feel uncomfortable in reality." Netizens wanted a 'refund'? The producer expressed he will continue to make more good series to repay the audience.
Ella Koon responded to audience's disappointment of the gang rape, she said: "Really? Her acting is great, every one of us had a lot of room to develop the roles. That scene was suppose to promote anti-drugs. Why are the audience so psycho and want to watch gang rape?" But Ella supported Kate, "Perhaps it's an issue of television scale and editing, the scene wasn't used after all, that is a little disappointing."
