Dayo Wong's "My Prime Lady" copies Japanese drama

8 Jun – Dayo Wong's upcoming comeback drama, "My Prime Lady" has been accused of copying a Japanese drama.

As reported on Jayne Stars website, in his TVB comeback as an actor and scriptwriter, Dayo used his experiences from his recent breakup to help him film the drama- playing the role of a life coach who turns middle-aged women, who are past their prime time, into beautiful and confident ladies again.

In one of the subplots, Sharon Chan, who normally portrays sexy onscreen characters, will be playing of one of the miserable women who will get a full makeover and become a successful singer with the help of Dayo's character, and eventually fall in love with him.

However, a Netizen recently pointed out that the series' plot is rather similar to the popular Japanese drama, "Nobuta wo Produce", which starred Horikita Maki as a social outcast who underwent a transformation with the coaching of a classmate (Kamenashi Kazuya) and finds her self worth.

When asked regarding the similarity between the two, TVB Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming said, "Only the basic ideas are similar, but the details of the storyline are different. For example, in all procedural dramas, there will always be police and criminals but that doesn't mean all the dramas will be similar plot-wise."

In related news, due to the poor viewership of "Bullet Brain" and "Beauty at War", TVB decided to move "My Prime Lady's" slot to late this year rather than its original 2014 schedule.
