I'm actually enjoying this drama. I was skeptical about Bosco/Linda pairing since in MR and GOL ruin them coupling but this one is not bad. Really love episode 4 the conversation between them really cute!

I watched the first two episodes....It's okay so far. I thought they were using this as a Miss Koo spin-off? Anyway, I thought Linda improved but then her acting so far annoys me =| I can see her character definitely has some psychological disorder but I feel she's not portraying it very well...Also, what's up with the reference to Raymond Lam and Love Not Enough? It's getting so old. I remember Linda's other series (A Watchdog's Tale, I believe) used it too.....

I agree, she could have portrayed it better.  She looks annoyed with people around her in the episodes :/

Linda Chung supports 'ex' Raymond Lam: He's Very Sharp Lately

TVB new series Witness Insecurity premiere week's ratings averaged at 31 points and peaked at 33 points. Yesterday Linda Chung, Cilla Lok, Queenie Chu and the rest of the cast celebrated the success. Bosco Wong is the lead actor, but Raymond Lam's nickname 'Chok Fung' is always mentioned in the series. This led to an online verbal war between Bosco and Raymond's fans.

Previously on Daddy Good Deeds, Linda sings Raymond Lam's Love With No Regrets and this time, Raymond never actually appears in the series, but the plot always mentions 'Chok Fung', which led to a verbal war between Bosco and Raymond's fans. Linda said: "I understand fans just want to defend their idols. Bosco and Raymond are our own people, perhaps there is a misunderstanding. Maybe because 'Chok Fung' is a hot topic, so its always used. As an artist, we cannot control what our lines are. (TVB is really trying to push Raymond up?) Well he's so sharp lately. Before while shooting series, I sometimes mention him, perhaps the producer wanted to use him as a gimmick." Linda also expressed former producer Lau Ka Ho phoned them in support of the series, she said: "Earlier it was rumored that this series was gonna get neglected, but now it's broadcasting and got 33 points, proves that TVB is still very supportive. I'm very happy with the results." Linda also expressed she feels happy because her Witness Insecurity theme song is often played and fans know how to sing the song too.

Regarding to Raymond and Bosco's fans' verbal war, Cilla Lok expressed: "Raymond and Bosco are in fact the Siu Sangs now, Bosco doesn't mind. I saw Raymond earlier at the Three Kingdoms promotion, he reduced his Choks, perhaps its because he was wearing the ancient costume!"

TVB is often criticized of their sloppy productions. The recent high rated series Witness Insecurity and Three Kingdoms RPG (both produced by Lau Kar Ho), were criticized that TVB wasn't serious about the productions. The former used the same Bosco Wong photo in two series, Witness Insecurity and Lives of Omission, while the latter had a large-scale battle scene without a single horse seen in it. No wonder Netizens teased that TVB's cheap!

Last night's episode of Witness Insecurity was about Linda Chung reading the newspaper that had Bosco Wong on the headlines. Bosco, who plays a police officer, was believed to have been waiting for his 8 year missing girlfriend, but the photo used on the headline was discovered by Netizens to have been the same exact one used in Lives of Omission. The difference was one is a cop and the other is a criminal. The latter said the criminal Bosco ("Bai Co") was shot to death, which means the one used in Witness Insecurityis a dead person's photo!

There were a lot of online discussions on TVB's 'one photo used for two series'. Reporters contacted Bosco, who is currently shooting in Mainland, he frankly expressed he hasn't watched the series yet because he's not in HK, but in regards to the criticisms: "I believe its just a small careless mistake, people make mistakes! I hope you all can forgive us." Lead actress, Linda said this is not something artists can control, but each series has a budget, the crew tries their hardest to do the best. It's normal that there are expectations from audience, but at the end of the day, its satisfying enough to have support from the audience.

Also, Linda is shooting one series after another. Lately she's been shooting new series Ferris Wheel Happiness with Jason Chan and has been 'promoted' to a See Jeh (senior), but Linda does not accept this title.

Linda laughed: "I am younger than Jason. Being a little girl forever is good! See Jeh is too old. I believe I'm still a newcomer since it has been less than 10 years that I've been in the industry. I'm still in the learning stage and still have room for improvement. I really need a senior to teach me. If I say I'm a See Jeh that fast, then it's a dead end for me. No one will dare advise me again."

When asked if she feels strain leading Jason? Linda expressed she doesn't, because Jason doesn't need anyone to lead him. Not only is he smart, he has also been in several series already. He's an experienced host as well, so he's definitely better than her in memorizing lines.

Linda Chung, Paul Chun, Cilla Lok and Eric Li attended Witness Insecurity's promotional event at the mall yesterday. It was announced that last week's ratings averaged at 31 points and peaked at 35 points. Linda had nearly a 100 fans at the mall supporting her; she performed the theme song and fed bread to fans. Although Linda felt slightly unwell before performing her theme song, she still insisted and performed quite well. She later expressed she was not happy with her performance: "Because my voice was a little hoarse. I took medicine this morning, otherwise my voice would be even worse. (Afraid you might get off-key like Ah Sa?) I watched TV too, but I really don't think she did that bad. When I first debuted, I was even worse, my hands would shake and didn't have enough air either."

As for Cilla, she responded to her rumors with the two actors from the series, Hoi Yeung and Ronald Law. She expressed she hopes to maintain the elegance of being single and doesn't want to have a playful image. Earlier she was spotted on a date with Hoi Yeung? Cilla said: "That time, we all coincidentally finished working in Cheung Chau, so we just went to eat together. Actually Brian Chu was there too." Reporters mentioned Brian Chu also had rumors with her before: "I want to keep my single image. If I do have a boyfriend and we get photographed, then I will admit it, but they are all just my good brothers. My current love life is still empty."

Paul denied that he already signed with CTI, but he does admit Ricky Wong did ask him to join his company. When speaking of his children, Benji and Lesley, already signed with CTI, Paul thanked Ricky for giving his children the opportunity to shoot series. He expressed his son has been with TVB over the last 10 years and only been a host, now he can do the work he likes to do.

The thing that irks me about most TVB shows is the overuse of the same piece of music over and over again. (although I can understand since that department probably doesn't have the sufficient funds >..>) 
the theme song is stuck in my head now, even though I get tired of hearing it repeatedly.

I like the series so far. I'm only on episode 6 but it's pretty decent for a LKH production, although I don't like his sense of humor/the jokes and parodies he puts into his series (not exactly sure if it's him though). I find it up-in-your-face-until-I'm-sick. I guess this is an unpopular opinion, but I kind of find Bosco lacking 'charisma' for his role. I don't know, he doesn't convince as much as I would like him to. I have to say I love the supporting characters though (mainly Linda's dad and uncle, they're hilarious!).

Linda Chung does not believe presence of plagiarism in 'Witness Insecurity'

Yesterday Linda Chung, Lee Yee Man, Ram Chiang and the cast of TVB series Witness Insecurity (WI) attended the promotional event. Last week, the ratings averaged at 32 points and peaked at 35 points. Linda was very pleased that the series rating increases by 1 point each week and may become the top rated series of 2012. Linda expressed: "This is the series that got the best feedback in the 8 years I've been in the industry. When I'm out on the streets, people come running to me and say they really like watching me and Bosco as a pair and praised that my theme song is good. There are even fans who set the theme song as their ringtone. (Is it rumored boyfriend Philip Ng's ringtone too?) Don't know, you guys ask him!" Known as the 'stingy girl', Linda plans to host her first celebration dinner this Friday (7/27) to reward the cast and crew and also watch the 2 hour finale together.

It was said WI plagiarized ATV's old series The Cops Affair starring Joey Meng and Jackie Lui. Linda said: "I saw the report too, but I didn't watch the ATV series, so I'm not sure if it's true. Similarity is not considered plagiarism. Every series that has good results will bound to have gossips." She then changed the subject to her theme song becoming ringtones on her parents and fans' phones.

Lee Yee Man hoped WI will have a sequel, so she can be a policewoman again. When asked about her love life, Yee Man said: "I've been dating for several years already!" When asked if her boyfriend is like her ex-boyfriend Chan Siu Kei, a soccer player or an athlete? She said: "How is that related? My boyfriend works in an office. Our relationship is stabled. I must respect my boyfriend, shouldn't talk about my ex!"

The ending was very sad. Reminded me of Raymond's death as Alfred in Heart of Greed. But that was more depressing to me. I think the ending was very abrupt too. People are saying how if that didn't happen, then linda would never know how much bosco loved her. I beg to differ! The possibilities are endless. Nevertheless, sad sad ending.
