Another production of the cooperation of Mainland China-Hong Kong-Taiwan, Bong Ga suffers from a very mediocre script and extreme overacting from Rene Liu. Rene, who did such a wonderful job in A World Without Thieves, has seen her career slip downhill slowly but surely in recent years, mostly from participating in mediocre projects. Some of her TV series has been especially cringeworthy.
Karena Lam Kar Yan's career has taken an interesting turn though. The Vancouver born Hong Kong actress started out as a sweet smiling, low key TV series actress as she was just settling into the Entertainment circle in Hong Kong. She has made numerous commercials and usually sells herself with her dimply smile but recently, she has been testing herself with villain roles and has taken a complete 180 degree turn in image. Although she does a very respectable job with her newfound cold and dark demeanor, she doesn't quite fully convince me because I still see her as that cute girl with the wide, sweet smile all the time. But, it is nice to see that she is taking acting seriously instead of using the same one-dimensional trick. Karena should be one to watch out for. Rene on the other hand needs to tone down the overacting and find her best form again in smart, original projects.
