TVB series Inbound Troubles becomes famous overseas! The New York Times published an article "Hong Kong TV Drama Plays Out Uneasy Ties with China" on February 10th, introducing the series and its topics. Once the news came out, Louis Cheung and Bob Lam quickly reposted on Weibo. As one of the leads, Wong Cho Lam expressed: "Wah! 'Inbounds' on the New York Times? So actually, this series didn't just gain attention in HK and Mainland, but also got international recognition! All the hard work and efforts by the crew and the cast really was worth it!" Also, TVB expressed Inbounds is the current titleholder of the top rated series of 2013, the series averaged 30 points and peaked 34 points.

that's amazing! how many TVB series do you know that's been written by such a famous newspaper in the States?!
Honestly, what is there to complain about? It was an awesome drama.

Wow, talk about a major spinning job and to prey on the ignorant and unsuspected!

The NYT ariticle, if anyone cares to read it, actually say nothing that can be construed as recognition for the TVB series. It is all about the tense relationship between China and HK and the showing of the series was said to be reflect this development. It is more socio-political and not art/entertainment oriented as the writer is an ardent China follower.

So please calm all of your horses. LOL!!

hahaha that's awesome, it's like an advertisement for the series lol. Now there's definitely going to be people who are going to watch this series when they usually don't watch TVB series. Good for Wong Cho Lam, his series is being talked about overseas :)

Duh???

About 99.9% of the people who reads the NY Times do not watch TVB stuff and have no access to watch it anyway.

In my last post, I was mainly referring to Chinese people (who can read Ch. subs and/or understand Canto) since they're probably the only ones who'd even bother to tune in to the series because of what NY Times says. There are lots of Chinese who lost interest in TVB series/never really watched TVB series to begin with, but would tune in if a really interesting plot/issue to them, comes up (that's how I am with mainland Ch. series). And these people would have access to TVB series. Plenty of online sites where you can watch them for free, and some even with Eng subs for those Chinese who need them to help them understand the series.

Not sure, but I do know that this article has been posted in a few Chinese/Asian forums already (such as this one), so it's bound to catch the attention of some Chinese who are really interested in the politics between HK and the mainland lol

Regardless of the NYT writer's intent, just the fact that the series got reported on a renown US newspaper is a feather in Wong Cho Lam's cap.
