TVB To Film Hk Version Of Mainland Series 'dwelling Narrowness'
Although "Beauty Knows No Pain" and "Mysteries of Love" are accused of plagiarism, but TVB doesn't mind and would continue this trend, copying Mainland's hit series "Dwelling Narrowness." This HK version would start filming in October and titled <<抉宅男女>>. Linda Chung, Joyce Tang, Ron Ng, and Michael Tse would be in various relationships. Michael Miu would pair with Sonija Kwok. Linda's character is just like "Hai Zao" in "DN," who would not hesitate to commit indecent deals in order to climb up to the ladder.
As for this new series is obviously copying "DN," producer Cheung Kong Man didn't feel there is a problem: "You need to share good things with others and promote it. New series would talk about housing problems. It's the same in Shanghai and Hong Kong, housing is a problem residents are facing. It's also a way for viewers to vent their emotions."
Currently busy filming "Yes Sir, No Sir," Linda said she already received DVDs of "DN" and plans to watch it right away after work: "Producer already told me to pay close attention to 'Hai Zao.' (Copying obviously?) I'm an actor. My responsibility is to portray characters well."
Although Sonija hasn't received notice of filming this series, but she said she would feel proud of working with Michael Miu: "I worked with him once in 'Au Revoir Shanghai,' but I died when I appeared. (TVB copying?) Everyone is doing it. American's 'Infernal Affairs' copied Hong Kong's."
