Netizen's have criticized Charmaine Sheh's portrayal of a mentally challenged woman on her latest show "My Sister of Eternal Flower".
Hong Kong entertainment giant TVB debuted their new show "My Sister of Eternal Flower" this week. The lead actress of the series, Charmaine Sheh, left netizens with a strong impression after the show's debut. While many of her fans have praised their idol for her work, others are much more critical.
In the show, Charmaine plays the role of a mentally challenged woman whose IQ is that of a 10 year old. However, netizens have claimed that she acts more like a 2 year old than a mentally challenged woman. They also claim that you can see her intelligence through her eyes and that her movements are too exaggerated.
The show has also been put on blast for a scene where Raymond Lam, the show's lead actor, robs a bank as a practical joke. An official complaint was submitted to the show, claiming that robbery should not be portrayed as a practical joke and that the scene could influence children to rob for fun.
Despite the negative response to the show, "My Sister of Eternal Flower" has had relatively good ratings. The premier brought in 1.9 million viewers, an increase from the previous week's "Relic of an Emissary" finale. It is too early to tell whether the negative feedback from the show will result in lower ratings for the show's future or if the viewers will tune in to see what all the buzz is about.
