The Mainland China series, The Empress of China acted by Fan Bingbing will be broadcasted in TVB at 9.30pm daily.
However, the audiences did not expect to see a different version of added clothing with special effects and left with disappointed as they could not see the beautiful women's chests in the drama.
Yesterday (27 April) was the airing of the debut series, The Empress of China and the average ratings was at 23 pts, around 1.49 million audiences, while the highest ratings was at 25 pts, around 1.55 million audiences, reports Asian E-News Portal.
The added clothing with special effects version of The Empress of China series broadcasted in TVB became the hottest topic on the Internet. On Facebook, the director Derek Kwok (郭子健) cursed at the 'chest closure' arrangement.
TVB clarified that the edited version came from the production team in Mainland China.
Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming pleaded for grievance: "This was set by General Administration of Press and Publication, TVB and overseas had to broadcast the version with additional clothing using special effects as it was perceived more natural. They then gave us the original version with added work and it was not added by TVB itself."
