21 Jan – TVB drama, "Inbound Troubles" is in trouble for stirring up controversies for its misunderstood representation of the mainland Chinese and Hong Kong citizens.

According to Asianpopnews website, the light-hearted drama, written by comedic actor Wong Cho Lam, initially intended to poke fun and celebrate the cultural conflicts between the mainlanders and the Hong Kong residents. But the plot has been severely blasted not only by mainland Chinese but also by Hong Kong citizens.

Viewers were particularly irked by Angela Tong's portrayal of a rude Hong Kong tour guide who scolded tourists, while Wong Cho Lam and Roger Kwok play a China citizen who speaks in poor Cantonese and a Hong Kong citizen who speaks in badly pronounced Chinese respectively.

The annoyance has even developed into harassments with Roger Kwok sharing that he was scolded while walking on the streets by a girl who chided him for badly representing Hong Kong citizens.

Producer Wong Wai Sing also experienced the same thing. Speaking to the media, the producer revealed that a viewer scolded him on the phone for the lack of humour in the drama, saying that the drama only deepened the tension between China and Hong Kong.

Wong revealed that although they only wanted to reflect the reality and did not intend for the relationship to worsen, the drama will only stop airing if the company decides for it to be.

The series has received 60 complaints till date. However, it still received better ratings than the recent TVB dramas, with its premier averaging at 31 points and attracting 2.12 million viewers.
