Source: Jayne StarsTVB is on a roll, churning out rape scenes one after another. Kate Tsui’s (徐子珊) one-second rape scene in Highs and Lows , and Samantha Ko’s (高海寧) violent rape scene in Friendly Fire received wide public attention. However, rape scenes were also found in The Last Steep Ascent as well as Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles , marking a prominent recent trend in TVB dramas. Sire Ma’s (馬賽) character in Will Power will next encounter a sexual assault.In the legal drama, Sire plays the role of a model’s manager. She dyed her hair golden brown to go with the role’s image and as a result, caused her sensitive skin to itch and swell. This was only one of her sacrifices. Not only will she reveal her back in a passionate bed scene with Vincent Wong (王浩信), she will also be raped by him later in the show.Vincent said, “I feel pressured playing the role of a rapist. Fortunately, Sire and I worked together in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles so at least we won’t feel as awkward.‘“Will Power‘ Producer Speaks UpTVB’s frequent feature of rape in its recent drama plots has caught the attention of viewers. Will Power producer, Tsui Ching Hong (徐正康) explained, “Rape scenes in TVB dramas have garnered a lot of attention. However, I would like to stress that the rape scene in Will Power is a necessity. It is not meant to be the focal point of the show, nor is it used to boost ratings. Instead, viewers should focus on the plots before and after the rape scene.‘ Tsui Ching Hong further stressed that Will Power is a legal drama, and it is common for rapes to be featured in such genres, since rape is a common crime.For viewers who complained that the rape scenes left too much to the imagination, Tsui Ching Hong said snidely, “I don’t understand the culture of the Internet. Rapes are tragic, so why would anyone request for longer rape scenes or request the actresses to reveal more or even go naked? From a professional television personnel’s point of view, I have this advice ‘“ do not expect too much from the rape scenes. It is only the imbecile who fantasizes about the rape scenes on television.‘The gallery below shows scenes from Friendly Fire, another show that features rape scenes.
