The added clothing with special effects version of The Empress of China series broadcasted in TVB became the hottest topic on the Internet. On Facebook, the director Derek Kwok (郭子健) cursed at the 'chest closure' arrangement. Some netizens left their messages that Hong Kong society was perceived more conservative than Tang dynasty and requested to return the 'career line' to them. As such, TVB clarified that the edited version came from the production team in Mainland China. Deputy Director of External Affairs (企业传讯部副总监), Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明) pleaded for grievance: "This was set by General Administration of Press and Publication, TVB and overseas had to broadcast the version with additional clothing using special effects as it was perceived more natural. They then gave us the original version with added work and it was not added by TVB itself."
