Yesterday Sharon Chan, Samantha Ko and artists attended TVB's birthday party for January birthdays. Sharon felt embarrassed and didn't want to reveal her age, but she laughed: "I'm over 30! You guys can probably guess!" Currently in a stabled relationship, Sharon frankly expressed she and her boyfriend still has no plans to get married: "Not this year! Maybe in 3 years!" She expressed her birthday wish this year is to buy a home and rent it out.
Ko Ling (Samantha) expressed she's been troubled by negative news lately. She said because of all the stories from her rape scene in Friendly Fire, the media has been disturbing her family. She said emotionally: "There were reporters waiting outside my house and asked my parents to comment! I have old and young in my family, it's dangerous!" She frankly expressed the exposure level from that scene is her limit. She said: "Actually it's just necessary for the plot, but it became such a big deal. I really can't find a boyfriend now!"

Doing it once was "understandable".. but doing it twice??
This is a pathetic way to boost rating.

Actually if I didn't know, she can easily pass for mid 20s

I'm sick of rape scenes too, especially since they just seem to be sensationalized for ratings. For this series, I don't mind as much but I will have to see how they tell this story. It seems like it will be part of the story of Samantha reporting the rape, going through the trial (and hopefully having the rapist found guilty!), and her coming out stronger in the end.
I remember the rape case in The Other Truth and being so angry about the story ending with Aimee making up the rape because I believe it's the wrong message to tell, especially since it is such a sensitive subject.

Then again, it's silly asking the parents, specifically Samantha Ko. I mean what's so special about 'her rape scene'? There are like a lot more others who have done that scene before in TVB and yet, they don't get the whole 'what does your parents think about it' - not that they should anyway, because there's no need to put so much emphasis on it unless they are planning to raise awareness regarding the issues of rape (i.e. like the New Delhi gang-rape case) which I highly doubt so.

To raise awareness, or to "encourage" rape?
I am afraid the latter that tvb is doing right now..
