[QQ.com] With the rumors of “Catch” will be concluded with Damian Lau’s character to be dead, alive, or become a vegetable, is it similar to the 2 endings of “D.I.E” and it’s part of the promotion now for TVB with series with N results? And that the viewers have a choice to determine if the leading man’s live or die? This causes confusion among many fans.
On the rumors of 3 possible endings for “Catch”, producer Chong Wai Kin expressed “We actually had several conclusions for “Catch”, that is either life or death for Damian’s character. However, it’s not inspired by “D.I.E”, it’s just the disagreement between the creator and the cast how the story ends. We actually have 1 ending now, and can’t do both endings. I favor the ending that Damian die, but of course the audience want ‘happy ending’, however this also depends on how long the story is”. Chong also disclosed that TVB plan to conduct the poll to let the audience determine on the ending.
Idy Chan’s playing housewife to relate to the audience
Another focus of the series is on Idy who doesn’t appear with beautiful Little Dragon Girl images like in the old days, making the play a bit dramatic. In response on this, producer Chong said “Actually, we planned to create her with the softer image from the beginning with long hair, however, at episode 4, you discovered that she started to have a shorter hairdo, and that modernizes her image a bit. Then at episode 13 [!spoiler alert!] and 14, you will discover she’s becoming ‘sharp’ a bit more. She is a stubborn, yet very genuine, and not calculated housewife, and with this she’d fear that someone will want to murder ‘The master mind’ Damian. Therefore, we cannot have Idy with a very ‘sharp’ image, instead of an ordinary common housewife. I hope this would relate to the audience and allow them to connect to their own dreams.”
The fans also criticize that Idy’s fat and her hoarse voice, Chong defends “It’s true that she was a tiny bit fat, also she got throat inflammation during the shooting, but she persisted to go forward with it, and for sentimental dialogues in filming there’s no need to use original sounds. Chong greatly approves Idy’s professional spirit “She doesn’t mind about her own image, she just wanted to complete the role. She herself is a very quick alert person, but willing to play a silly housewife. In fact, she does maintain her ‘Little Dragon Girl’ image with her charisma and undauntable personal. She already sacrificed her image for taking up this role. There’s a lot of beautiful fat girls in HK, don’t criticize her, she’s just being herself”.
[Sure, Idy doesn’t look like those 20 something actresses out there with long legs and slimming bodies, but saying that she’s fat? Whatever. I guess some don’t know that cameras add pounds to people. I’m now confused after reading this article on the ending, looks like it’s a sad one. Who cares, I’m going to enjoy the rest of the series, since this could be Idy’s last TV work.]
