TVB drama, Stranger Anniversary (雙生陌生人) is reduced from 25 to 20 episodes and the finale will be airing on 27th May. In the first week, it achieved a low rating record at 13.5 pts and some netizens felt it was a pity to broadcast the finale earlier and a waste of cast team’s efforts.
At the recruitment drive for 2022 Ms Hong Kong Pageant (2022香港小姐競選) on 17th May, Toby Chan (陳庭欣) responded in relation to the arrangement during the interview with HK01 (香港01): “We feel helpless upon hearing the news. We work very hard and wish to add more episodes. Reducing the episodes means the plot has changed and I understand it is because of certain factors. We hope to give a different feeling if the episodes are reduced. (The netizens said it is a waste of your effort?) Yes, we put in full efforts and film day and night. It is indeed a waste of our efforts.”
