TVB anniversary series Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles starring Damian Lau, Tavia Yeung, Kenneth Ma and Elena Kong has already started getting complaints after the first three episodes of broadcast. Netizens said Elena Kong's sexy performance really leaves a "heavy aftertaste". Yesterday the storyline was about third wife Elena trying to look sexy in her black stockings. She also danced and posed sexily to seduce Damian. The couple later engaged in a heated kiss and continued their activity on the sofa. But then, Damian goes back to his first wife Mary Hon's room and resisted her requests.
The OFCA (Office of Communications Authority) received 5 complaints on that morally offensive scene and it should not have been broadcasted during prime time hours. TVB also received 1 complaint on the erotic scenes in the series. Additionally, there were 16 complaints on the series having too many English lines and the inaccurate pronunciations [TN: and not to mention, hard to understand]. Highs and Lows received a complaint that the plot is not logical and damages the police's image.
Elena responded to the complaints over the phone, she said: "I was really embarrassed that time because it was my first time doing a scene like that and it wasn't just Damian at the scene, a lot of the behind-the-scenes crew were watching, but I had no other choice, it was on the script." Audience complained the series is too 'erotic'? She said: "I'm a little surprised, the costume is not considered sexy in this generation, but there weren't that many complaints, proves that the majority can accept it." However, Elena frankly expressed her boyfriend couldn't accept it and told her to concentrate more on sentimental scenes.
