@orchid123 thats called luck. He was lucky to have rosy business and can buy luxury properties already after that. Or else still supporting actors. Just like candy lo, she only popular and good with one song hou sam fan sau. Other songs all cannot le....hehe...
@potatochip Obviously you dunno much about the hong kong entertainment industry and quite ignorant on that. If you never watch those drama and you already concluded things which is so wrong. It makes no sense because you have pretty bad comprehension skill. You just could not comprehend analytical conversation. I did not say Tony and Andy were terrible TV actors, but as a rookie raymond performed much better. But though it seemed unfair to compare since its of different era.
That is why I said a good actor needs a good partner (actress) to shine. If Wayne never did any drama series with Sheren Tang, he may still be doing supporting roles now. Wayne Lai acts well only in the characters that suit him, not in any roles (such as romantic guy, highly professional or nerdy persons). He acted very badly in "Bullet Brain". In order for a good artiste to showcase his/her best acting, he/she needs a good character, a good partner, and a good script.
@potatochip Yes because he working for passion and interest. Unlike you working for money. Because when nick, francis and louis were at raymond's age, they did not earn as much as raymond, did not have much fans like raymond, and did not getting as much awards like raymond.
@jimmyszeto wrong. 2012 raymond's popularity already peak and definitely more than wayne. His acting is good but he wont have hundred thousands of fans. Even kenneth ma also shocked at that time wayne can win.
@jimmyszeto Agreed that Wayne Lai was very popular because of "No Regrets". "No Regrets" was a very well-prodoced drama series. The whole cast acted very well. Wayne and Sheren won the TV King and TV Queen in the year before in "Rosy Business", so they were very very popular and "No Regrets" was a much better series than "Rosy Business" in script, acting, and cast. Of course Wayne was more popular than Raymond Lam in 2010. Raymond Lam's only drama series in 2010 was "The Mysteries of Love" 談情說案. It was not an amazing series though its average rating was not bad .......... 32 vs. 33 in "No Regrets".
@kings ‘Adam Cheng can’t melt a girls heart’. Go ask your mum!!
@kings Raymond lost that year because 1. Wayne Lai was much better 2. Wayne Lai was more popular. So that rules of your Raymond great acting and popularity reasoning
@kings Sure, he must love working for others. His family has so much money, why even sign up to a company? Money is not an issue. Just tell the producers that he wants to be in their movies. Or better yet, just tell them to make a movie for him. If you don't want to compare him to established actors, stop saying is better than them. How are you measuring success? I need to see this amazing fandom translate into tickets in the movies, awards, production of him as lead in numerous movies, etc. There is always some excuse why he doesn't have the above.
@kings Okay. You said rookie. He was the 3rd male lead in Step into the Past and that was considered his breakout role. It is tied so much to him that they are coming out with a movie version, right? He was a rookie then, right? I have no idea what Loft Waters and Survivor Law are. How did I miss such legendary acting? And internet forums, you have failed me for never mentioning such classic series. Still, Greed of Man example makes no sense. Tony, Andy, Adam and Damian are good in movies and also good in TV acting. Movies are dramas, right? But let's pretend that Tony and Andy were terrible TV actors (they weren't), how does that relate to Raymond? Are you saying he is an incredible TV drama actor but isn't so great in movies? So amusing that all of us are so very wrong. @jimmyszeto You are wrong! @coralie Wrong, wrong, wrong!
@potatochip Lol, good box office does not mean you will get the award. Louis had to wait 17 years since he left tvb to get his first BA award. I am not a blind loyal fans but i will analyse logically. Raymond is enjoying working for others and less pressure. When you're opening a company, there are many things that you need to handle. Most importantly money is not the issue for Raymond. Louis,nick and francis are much older than raymond and they started in the industry way earlier ,so its not right to compare.
@orchid123 Awards does not mean the acting must be perfect. Still have to include luck, popularity and many other factors as well. Just like Louis Koo got to wait until 2018 only can get Best Actor award in HKFA since he left TVB in 2001. But acting like nic tse also can get the award in 2011. And also not necessarily highest box office will land you an award. Jessica hsuan and kenix kwok acting are very good anytime better than Nancy wu, kristal tin,natalie tong and Ali lee. Just that they are woman and they wont wait long enough in tvb to get the awards. For raymond, 2012 was the best time for him to win the BA in tvb but TVB rigged the results. So called 100% citizens voting, and how on earth he will lose to wayne's the eunuch! But anyway during those time wayne, roger and kelvin were still there to fighting for the awards.
@kings Not even in drama series when he was with TVB.
@jimmyszeto You are so wrong. People will remember Raymond lam because of his godlike tvb drama theme songs. Adam cheng can sing very well but wont able to melt the girls' heart. Only you dont watch , dont assuming others are not watching. Chinese human will not stop watching Greed of man, line walker, greed of heart, rosy business and forensic heroes, mysteries of love and many many more.
@coralie you are wrong as well. Hong kong movies was peak during the 90s till internal affairs movies. Andy Lau is always popular due to his handsome face and good acting. Jacky cheung acting is so so but his songs are superb.
@orchid123 It was a lot harder to win TV King or TV Queen at Raymond Lam's time. There were too many good actors around in TVB. The competitions were very tough. None of the top 4 siu sangs (Raymond Lam, Bosco Wong, Kenneth Ma and Ron Ng) was able to win TV King in those years. Just like Kenix Kwok Ho-Ying, she never won TV Queen. Do you think her acting was inferior than the acting of Nancy Wu, Kristal Tin, Natalie Tong, and Ali Lee?
@orchid123 Of course they cant. Ruco and vincent only can get popularity through TVB dramas. While Raymond still can open world tour concerts, filming movies and doing dramas.
@msxie0714 Oh yeah i've totally forgot about that one.... havent watched it yet i'm still waiting for the cantonese version if not then english subtitle will do
@potatochip Nope, you are wrong again. Raymond was not the male lead in step into the past although he was the king at the end. When raymond was a rookie with male lead such as Lofty Waters Verdant Bow and survivor law outshined Andy in drama. I never say Damian Lau and Adam cheng are not popular but their popularity are not any greater than Raymond lam as a whole because RL is a more versatile player. I brought up greed of man just to explain a person good in movies not necessarily good in drama acting and vice versa. Not accusing raymond. Just saying Andy was so popular due to his handsome and also hard work in movie industry. Both in different era and different age its not comparable but just that Raymond has the same traits like Andy only.
@jimmyszeto If Raymond were still with TVB in the last few years, I don't quite believe that Ruco Chan, Vincent Wong or even Roger Kowk (in his last awarded drama series) could have won the TV King awards easily. Now any half-decent artistes can win TV King or TV Queen awards. It is still more competitive for TV King than TV Queen though (e.g. Nancy Wu twice, Kristal Tin, Natalie Tong, Ali Lee). Nancy Wu acts well, but not in her TV Queen award drama series.
@kings Popularity of Ruco and Vincent can never be compared with Ryamond Lam's for sure for a long time. Ruco just picked up some popularity and recognition after the airing of his 1st lead in "The Other Truth", and Vincent got his in "Blind Lawyer" (not sure of the exact name).
@alluka I don't disagree that Raymond has any problems to work with new actresses in TVB. However, not many new actresses can act these days. Without a good partner, it is hard for Raymond to showcase his acting in the very FIRST come-back series in TVB.
@michelle2805 In terms of acting and look, Charmaine beats Nancy by miles. If it is a pure action-packed series, Nancy could be a good choice, but not for a drama series with other elements, like being a sweet loving couple, etc.
@sol365 If the LW3 is a well-written script, good cast to support Raymond Lam and a good producer, this sequel may work out well. However, I would prefer to have Raymond act in a totally different-themed drama series with a good script and a good partner. A good partner is very important to an artiste. Wayne Lai wouldn't have won his first and 2nd TV King awards if his partner was not Sheren Tang. Sheren Tang was able to bring out the acting ability of Wayne, particularly in 'No Regrets".
@kings Dude... I guess I don't have the skills to differentiate leading actors with box office hits and awards with "I am excited to play the villain in Louis's movie" super duper star. You are telling me I don't know the difference between rabid blind fan loyalty and being able to recognize true talent. You're right, I don't know that level of fandom. Also, with all of this amazing popularity, why doesn't Raymond make his own movie production company and have Louis work for him? I get it. Raymond is better than Louis (!), Nick and Francis. Okay. I would think you are trolling me, but sadly for you, I don't think so. Have a lovely day.
I don't believe "all the artistes with no makeup" listed above totally had no make up on their face. Most of them just used light or very casual makeup. I do admit a few of them did not have makeup on, but they looked very different, almost unrecognizable, like Sammi Cheng, Shu Qi, Stephy Tang, Ali Lee; and some didn't look quite the same, such as Mayanne Mak, Selena Li, Priscilla Wong, Kay Tse.
@kings Huh? Andy was not good in the 80's? The Return of the Condor Heroes? So many remakes, none can outdo him. The Duke of Mount Deer? Even though Tony was the star, Andy was also held his own. He may not have been as strong in acting as Tony back then, but he had this charisma and sex appeal that made him one of the most successful Tiger. I am re-watching A Step into the Past which is when Raymond was a rookie. You can not tell me that Raymond is a better actor or more attractive than Andy at that comparable point in his career. I really don't understand why you brought up the Greed of Man. It only disproves your point that Damian Lau and Adam Cheng aren't popular because you can't help but bring up a well-known, timeless classic. Andy and Tony are great actors who know that they don't need to replace or be compared to other great actors like Damian or Adam to prove their worth. And I can't tell if you are excusing Raymond's lack of equal success on his inherent wealth and calling it "passion" or dismissing Andy because he has to work hard. Either way, it is not a flattering argument for Raymond. Now, instead of Raymond in the same category as Andy, you sound like you are putting him above Andy. SMH.
Most of the parents of special needs children are exceptionally amazing. They are patient, adaptable, and so loving. They see the big picture instead of focusing on petty details and emotions. I admire the care that Sunny and his wife provide their son. That is beautiful and blessed family picture.
Hope the script is good. It will need to make 2 billion rmb to make back the budget.
@kings What has Raymond shined in? What is his specialist field then?
The next big superstar is gonna be Jackson Wang. There, I said it. I don't care if I'm biased AF lol. The dude dances, raps, entertains & speaks multiple languages and is trying to break into the American market. If he succeeds, numero uno fo' sho. If not, well, he's still popular everywhere else haha. The only thing he hasn't done is act. But I'm sure if given the opportunity in the future, he might try his hand at that too. I used to think Show Lo had a lot of potential, since he acts, sings, entertains and is very popular all over Asia. But then he died down. So now I'm pinning my sights on Jackson Wang!
@jimmyszeto Hey, for the record, that Ruco vs. Vincent wasn't such a big fight. It was just one superfan who unfortunately, tried putting down others to elevate their fave. Most agreed that Vincent was the obvious winner that year (with some hoping for a Kenneth miracle). I have my biases, but Vincent and Wayne (of course) are excellent actors.
@jimmyszeto Loooool, i had a good chuckle too
@potatochip Andy was not really good at Drama during the 80s when he was just a rookie. Compare with Raymond as rookie perform much more better. But Andy is so good at movie because of his looks and also the experience. Just look at the amount of movies he acted definitely boosted his acting skill until godlike. A person can act pretty well in drama, not necesarily can shine well in movie and vice versa. For example drama Greed of Man. If if you putting andy lau and tony leung to replace the male leads, it wont be so successful. On the other hand, Raymond did not really put much time on movies and they both have different background. Andy Lau must strive harder in his early life to earn money while Raymond joined the industry just for the sake of passion and interest. But its pretty rare to find a handsome guy that can act and sing very well. Last time have godlike Leslie cheung but sadly he was gay and gone.
@kings 'Leon has charisma' hahahaha
@alluka I did not say Adam cheng was not popular in the past.
@potatochip Chip you are wrong again. Louis ,nick francis might have a better acting skill due to his age and experience but they do not have the look and they do no have much fans like Andy lau and Raymond lam. Nick and francis only good in movies. Only andy lau and leon lai are handsome and having charisma and lots of fans in the past. But now they have aged and slowing down for family and health. Raymond good at movies, drama and singing. People like Jackie chan, adam cheng, nick cheung really good in acting. But people are just liking their movies. Not loving the person like how people love Andy Lau and Raymond lam. There is a big difference that you wont have the skill to differentiate.
I think a lot of them look younger without makeup. Lighting helps. But it is still deceptive if we are apply lots of filters.
@mike I don't think it is an either or situation. Not putting on make up is not being lazy. An ugly person is ugly on the inside out and no amount of make up hides that.
Eliza and Priscilla are still very pretty. So is Paisley and Ali
@jimmyszeto Selena really is the best. I can't believe they promote Natalie or Grace's over her.
@jimmyszeto I really am trying to get over having Andy Lau in the same category as Raymond. International superstar Andy Lau, lol.
@kings @alluka If you guys say Raymond is more popular than any other current TVB actor, you will get no arguments for me. Even if you said he is more popular than all of them combined, I may raise an eyebrow, but I will probably ignore. But you can not put him in the same category as Andy Lau. That is what is really funny. You brought up Adam, who has been a leading actor for 40-50 years and to elevate Raymond, you find it necessary to dismiss Adam's longevity and popularity. Raymond wishes he has the leading roles, classics and staying power that Adam has. @kings said Raymond has more fans because he was in the golden era but that argument is hollow because every big movie star came from the time before Raymond. They had legions of TV fans to carry their career to film. Despite his privilege and connections, if Raymond had the same level of fans as them, he would be as successful as Louis, Nick Cheng or Francis Ng. Or even Kevin Cheng. But he is not. @alluka He is popular in the internet era, that does get credit. But the number of fans in the internet era are fewer than before. He is like the winner of a state competition but some wants to make him equal or better than the national champions. I don't think all his fans are teenagers. But when some keep posting about actresses being too old or not pretty enough for Raymond, bashing successful actors to elevate him, and saying the his time was the golden era, the maturity level is questioned. I get that his fans are excited that he is coming back. I, too, am interested to see him back and see how this plays out. But certain posters are really doing him a disservice with the actions listed above. Let Raymond stand on his own merits.
I don't know about anyone else, but unless Tavia has a function/event or is filming, she actually goes out in public w/o make-up very often. And she posts pictures of her with no make-up without fanfare.
Coralie, it sucks if the financial responsibility is all hers. Then again, maybe that's the only way to get away from the $-important Tses (esp her MIL - Deborah Tse, always hanging out high profile with the famous names - where her source of $ comes from is dubious). And wow how bzbody can folks be about her emotional-dating life? She can have one. No matter what her choices are in her private life - I see her as a good mom. She has not forsaken her 2 boys, is always in touch with and her love-care for them shines through.
@mike Just watched Men Suddenly in Black last week with my wife. Not my type of genre but it was decent and during a time of Infernal Affairs rip offs....
@potatochip Selina is currently the best actress TVB has but she either isn't interested in fighting for big roles or TVB has focused on others...
@alluka TVB will treat their treasured artists differently upon their return. Look at Charmaine. From 2012 until 2014, she was basically either in film or in mainland dramas. How well did her mainland dramas do? Basically, not well at all. Her film did okay, but only because she was riding on the coattails of her previous popular TV series. Yet, she was given a grand welcome & adoration by TVB upon her return to the station and immediately given a role in LW, which helped to propel her career to new heights. But she wasn't THAT popular before her return. I would argue her career was actually waning, which is why she agreed to collaborate with TVB again. I didn't ask if Raymond won anything in 2015-16. I said SINCE 2015-16, which means he hasn't won anything after (although I did mention it was for singing and not acting. I stand corrected in this. But he left TVB in 2014 and that's when he accepted filming VQH. At that point, he was still popular because of his status in TVB.) And just because some airing company purchased his series, it's not just due to HIM and HIM only. There are also his collaborators that are worth investing into. And I didn't SAY his unaired series are flops; I said VQH was a flop in the latter half. And perhapsI am wrong about that, but I know I stopped watching a quarter of the way in. Chinese viewership in the billions is easy even with mediocre dramas. I'm not flattering myself into believing my vote or opinions count for anything, but I can obviously voice my disdain regarding his return since I haven't seen anything worthwhile of his. And this is obviously a marketing strategy to pull his HK market back.
@orchid123 That's a personal preference for me. Because the writing has been so bad, I am guilty of watching a series if the cast attracts me. Right now, only Ruco, Vincent, Michael Miu and Bobby Au Yeung do that. Ruco is too cunning looking to play the naive novice in UA, but he has been interesting in everything else. He is the jack of all trades - not exceptional in one, but above average in most areas of action (Kung fu and police), drama, romance (although to a lesser extent - better as the quiet, pining selfless romantic than mopey tortured semi-stalker), and comedy (also lesser - he is the straight man to the more silly supporting cast). My favorite roles of his are in COD, Ruse of Engagement and Outbound Love (poor stories and co-stars, but fun, strong characters). He definitely has lots of room for improvement, but I find him and Vincent much more versatile than the other TVB leads and what I remembered of Raymond Lam. (Also, opinions may vary, but Ruco is more handsome to me, especially a few years ago. He is showing his age and succumbing to unnatural means to retain his looks, but overall still good looking). I don't want to make this into a Raymond vs. Ruco debate. I do like Raymond in some series but I don't seek him out and get excited like the others. If the storyline is interesting, I also like watching Wayne, Kenneth, Joel, and Ben Wong. For females, I like Nancy, Alice, Selena, Kristal and Mandy but I won't watch a series just for them or get that excited about it. I compare this to how I use to feel about Noel Leung, Esther Kwan, Marianne Chan, Maggie Cheung Ho Yee, Jessica Hsuan, Ada and to a lesser extent (Gigi Lai, Kenix, Joyce, and probably others that I am forgetting). It is just not the same level.
Chapman To is too well seasoned on this area to be caught like that. After all, he did many movies about going out to cheat. My fav is always Men Suddenly in Black.
I've always admired Sunny's dedication to his family and son. Though a child with autism may take up a lot of their time, I wish they had had another child as well. So when they pass, at least there'll be a sibling who may be able to take care of Edgar. All the best to Sunny and his family
No makeup but max filtered.
@cutie777 Zoie Tam! But doubt she will be play the lead with Raymond.
@jimmyszeto Chinese system works differently. Even if a purchased series is criticized, it still popular with high viewership and its artists are still soared. TVB purchase doesn't count, trust me. Popular in China doesn't mean popular in Hongkong and vice versa.
@kings Jimmy is biased, says the guy who said 'Only andy lau and raymond lam have the look, acting, and singing skills to capture unlimited fans across the globe in chinese entertainment industry and very versatile artists'
@jimmyszeto The Virtuous Queen of Han can be counted, or you limit yourself just in TVB? Btw, the soul of LW should be 3 Gor. Benz soared in LW but his decision to be in LW2 kept him down as the character is less interesting.
@alluka A series being purchased means nothing. TVB automatically purchased some of the series because it involved their former artistes even before production had been complete. It is the reviews afterwards that decides whether it is flop or not...
@kings no, in my opinion Adam Cheng is a popular artist and I have my praises on Damien's acting regardless any role he is in. I also like Vincent even when his acting is unstable.
@coralie Should I the person who say about arguement with a wall. You asked if he won anything in 2015 and 2016 and I say yes, he won. That is it. Simple and direct. Next, amongst tons of series produced in China, if one get purchased by big channel, it means the series is interesting enough to get the investors to buy it. It is such a good thing. He left acting for concerts in the whole 2016 and half 2017 and you ask for acting award? Hmm... he came back last year with 4 series, just one is aired on Youku with 2.5 billion views (a so-so result) and the rest have not been aired. Tell me, how can you predict a flop to an unaired series? Even they are flop, until when he still has invitations to act as lead in China series, it means he still has market there. He returns because TVB are willing to invite and pay him. He didn't beg them to do so as he has a conference for his come back. So you think TVB is dumb to invite someone with no market value to come back. Come on, you can ignore his series and him. Without you, his market won't fall down much. Take your time to your beloved guys and let whoever's feeling happy for his return to celebrate. Dont count me in, I dont want him to be back any less than you.
@coralie @kings it's easy to see this clearly. Do people look back and decide lets re-watch this Damian Lau or Adam Cheng Classic? yes. Do people look back and decides lets listen to this Ada Cheng classic theme song? yes. Will people look back and think, let's watch this Raymond Lam classic? No because he does not have any representative work yet. His most popular works are representative works of Charmaine, Benz (Line Walker) and Louis Koo (A Step in the Past)....
Can't help but think that RL came back purely for the TV King award, to boost his popularity. He probably thought that if someone like Joe Ma can come back and win BA, he definitely can. With such a weak playing field, might as well just hand him the award now. As for LW3, I doubt even RL could bring the ratings up.
@jimmyszeto no, I don't have spare time to look around here until my vacation. So sorry, I didn't witness you say bad about Deric Wan or Irene Wan. However you should only say LF fans are this and that when all or at least most of his fans stating that he is the most popular artists and compare him with others by stepping on other artists. If only 1 do that, just say that to that person directly and left the other fans alone. Are you sure that the other fans of whoever's you like never say that s/he are most popular? Take my word, dont generalize people around you. It is definitely not classy at all.
I guest i'm the only one who doesnt really care that LF is making a comeback I'm more of Bosco & ROn fan and I choose nancy why not cast Mandy??? please ..please... please.... dont cast Ali i think her acting is poor dont know why she got the award last year
most of them still looks the same....however i some on them still have makeup on just lighter not so intense
@kings You need to read correctly. I said FILM. Not DRAMA. Big difference. I don't know about Damian Lau. But considering that both Damian & Adam are both in their 70s now and still in demand, speaks volume about their durability in a volatile market. And neither relied on idol appeal. Andy Lau...well, I think he also relies somewhat on his idol appeal, which is why he hid his wife so many years. (Before someone comes at me, I admit Andy does have his merits, but to say he doesn't rely on his idol status as well, is being disingenuous.) Look at Jacky Cheung, who relied on his talent and never had to hide a single thing.
@mike Donnie does not and never has had to crawl for anyone. Are you saying you wouldn't have made the same choice?
@mike you need to go to an optictians. I would love to know the colour of the sky in your world!
Are they wearing no make up..... or have they just gone for the natural look? Which takes a lot of make up to produce!
@alluka hahaha when jimmy said adam cheng is way above raymond lam, you already know he is very very biased person. But its okay. Human is tend to be biased all the times. There are even researched to conclude that human are biased. But they surely butthurt because TVB made a grand welcome for Raymond Lam that tvb wont do so even if ruco or vincent returning...hehehe
@coralie you wrong again. 90s was the peak moment for hong kong as hong kong captured the whole chinese entertainment industry across the globe. 2000 till 2010 was the peak for hong kong dramas. Your argument on 80s is not important because it was only popular in Hong kong but not in the rest of the world. During 80s only alan tam, anita mui and leslie cheung captured the asian market by their songs and movies. Damian lau and adam cheng acting are tip top but they dont have the look to be successful like andy lau and raymond lam. Only andy lau and raymond lam have the look, acting, and singing skills to capture unlimited fans across the globe in chinese entertainment industry and very versatile artists ^^
@mike Yes. However, it would be difficult for some women to have patience to spend an hour a 2 everyday to put makeup on before going out. Some won't even have the knowledge of how to get the best out of the makeup or what suits them best. Celebrities are experts at this and there they get plenty of tips from real qualified makeup artists...
@alluka Where was you this time last week?Still in hiding? When I have a actor I like I admit to their negatives before pointing out their positives. I didn't blind myself that Deric Wan nor Irene Wan are the most popular celebrities even they are my fave....
@jimmyszeto ya. Makeup does wonder for women. There is no ugly women, just lazy ones .
@coralie Nicholas Tse in Stool Pigeon. Great movie! Watched it about 10 times...
The baby's cheeks and eyes' expression looks so much like Grace. The way he looks at Kevin is how I imagine Grace looks at him, too lol. Just kind of puppy-eyes and idolatry.
Well i hope whoever is the father is supporting her newborn's expenditures. From what I've read, Cecilia was in a real financial pickle a while back. She's not getting alimony from Nic either so she's fully reliant on herself and need to support her family, too.
When I first saw the baby, I immediately think, "Leanne Li!" But upon further inspection, she suddenly resembles Wong Cho Lam. I mean, duh, 'cause it's his kid lol. But made me do a double take 'cause it reminds me of those pictures where you can see two different faces lol.
@alluka Again, since 2015-16, he hasn't produced anything good (Virtuous Queen of Han was produced 2015 or something). And just because a series is purchased by other TV stations doesn't mean jack. A lot of dramas purchased by TV stations are crap, plain & simple. I don't care what Raymond does, one way or another. But this fanfare of his return is ridiculous as he hasn't proven himself since he left TVB. But whatever, fans will be blind to whatever he does. I'm not going to argue with a wall.
@kings I didn't bring up awards until you did. And if we're honest, from mid-1990s to 2000 onwards, HK film industry hasn't been as prolific nor as good as it was in the past. All of their awards are questionable at best. And Nic Tse won in like 2011, way past 2000s and when films were mediocre. I'm not saying his was, but in comparison to the era when Jackie Chan won, he had a lot of weaker contenders and competition. So in that sense, I think JC's awards hold a lot of merit in and of themselves.
@alluka Read before you speak. There isn't anything I said about Raymond to suggest I didn't like him. I don't think it is very classy to downgrade other actors to enhance the credibility of your favourite actor,especially someone who hasn't set the world alight with his acting nor his singing in the past...
@jimmyszeto Fans are supposed to be blind and it is never a matter unless they are getting too over. Please, dont act like you are higher than everyone else, dude :). You are normal person and you also have something you are biased for of which you think it/that person is better than the rest. In the end of the day, you are the person who is rolling in the circus, why be so harsh on others? Just because they do like a person you dont like? Meh, it should be a lil better try.
Hahahaha...Raymond Lam fans all coming out of hiding. Not seen so many biased opinions and trashing of Vincent/other TVB actors since the Ruco vrs Vincent best actor battle. That was when blind fans said Ruco was brilliant playing The difficult role of a 20 year old happy go luck fellow while Vincent got given a ‘tailor made’ blind lawyer role. Now fans here are blindly suggesting that Raymond has a enormous fanbase and his acting is out of this world while Vincent isn’t good enough and Wayne/Moses too old. Keep the circus comments rolling girls...
@potatochip Raymond won’t be anywhere near Adam Cheng. Even Tony Leung won’t be at that age. Too many celebrities, especially in China. Andy Lau will be the last big star...
@orchid123 I don’t think cable TV produced any series. Priscilla and Ali were just hosts...
I wouldn’t notice Sammi in the streets. Looks a different person without makeup...
The older ones start to look their age once the makeup is removed...
Fala Chen looks the cutest. Ali Lee has always look plain; a girl next door. Leanne Li looks like she is from Thailand...if you know what I mean.
@mmabelt05 Donnie said he would never do another Yip Man movies a few sequels ago. Money talks. He came crawling back to do a few more Yip Man movies after that.
Stephy looks like a complete different person.. IMO Koni and Myolie looks quite the same w/ or without makeup
@alluka hehe, if normal love drama i dont mind he partner with whoever girl. But for grand production drama like LW3, the producer better find a suitable actress for raymond. If TVB can get back fala chen, kat tsui and charmaine back, hohoho what a big hit drama of the year.
@potatochip 5 tiger era was too old, and that time no drama awards or whatsoever and only music awards. Its different era as of now. During 90s 4 heavenly kings captured the whole chinese entertainment. lol, why would raymond has to wait until 70 year old just for the sake of proving to you that he will be still popular? Your argument so funny. I just hope in the next 10 years he will try his best to get best actor in tvb awards and hong kong film awards to have fullset of most pretigious awards in hong kong.
@sherla1019 Didn't you hear about recent Chinese film Wandering Earth? It had high praises from a critic who usually bashes Chinese films
As long as the male lead actor is Raymond Lam l don't care about the actress
Baby really looks like Leanne. Stronger gene than cho lam.
@orchid123 I think his fans will always try to avoid the mention to that series forever. It was a big step off of him.
@funnlim it’s an angsty series that was written to be a tragedy. The point is to milk the audience’s emotions lol, by whatever means, the story doesn’t need a point, it just need to be able to make you sad by the end of it xD
@alluka Agreed. Vincent Wong did not act well in "Heart of Greed 3". I watched most of the series.
@potatochip You should notice that with internet, TV has lager audience but at the same time, the competition from other countries are more. It is two faces of a coin. The audience has more choices so one can be popular in the internet era, s/he has credits from that. Why you guys keep thinking that his fans are kids or teenagers? I mean he is 40 already, it is very hard for teenagers to like a 40 uncle in the era where there are tons of ’Fresh meat’ coming from China, some is as young as in their teenagers. Come on, even if his fans was teenagers, they are supposed to be in their 30s or at least 20s now. He is in this industry for 20 years, not 2 years.
@michelle2805 My personal opinion: I think Charmaine Sheh is the best actress for Raymond Lam if TVB can get both. Charmaine is good in acting vs. all the current ones in TVB. Raymond needs to have some good actress in his first series back with TVB. Ali Lee is good just in terms of age, look, but not acting. Her acting is just so so. Nancy Wu is good in acting, but she is not pretty enough to be partnered with Raymond Lam.
@potatochip I don't quite agree that "there are more talented male actors than female that I enjoy watching". The so-called talented male actors could be the veterans, such as Wayne Lai, Moses Chan, Ben Wong, Ruco Chan and maybe a few others. None of the new actors are good. Wayne, Ben and Moses are too old for some characters. Ruco is good in acting villainous roles (as to my opinion) but not in some "honest" guys' roles. The only young one left is Vincent Wong, and he has worked as an actor for a number of years too. As for female actresses, almost all the fadans are gone. The ones that TVB promoted now are all new, except Kristal Tin, Nancy Wu (who also left TVB recently), Alice Chan, Priscilla Wong, Mandy Wong, and Ali Lee. Priscilla and Ali had worked as actresses for many years too in Cable TV. Kristal and Alice are too old to be paired up with Raymond Lam, but the younger veterans are not that good in acting.
@cutie777 I would like to see Tracy! Her acting isnt great but I like her. I would lie to see selena too
No Charmain?? and please no Ail... I rather have nancy...
@kings I said internet, not smartphones. Before the vast options of internet and series from other countries, TV had a larger audience. TVB was at its best during the 5 Tigers And 1990`s era. I think you would consider me old, but I took a hiatus right after in the mid 2000`s because the series were not original. Raymond was only in 1 of the 3 series you named. Although good, many would say they do not have the classic appeal of the 5 Tigers series. I think it would be difficult to imagine Raymond still being as popular as Adam Cheng when he is over 70 years old.
@orchid123 Heart of Greed 3 or whatever the name it was. He was wooden there. Feeling like there is no passion to star in it. He is a decent actor and his look is comfortable. He just needs to be more stable and please get rid of all kind of botox, filler or whatever to inject on face. It kills the acting. Just let the wrinkles appears even if it makes people think he is not handsome anymore.
@alluka What is HOG3? I agree that Vincent Wong was good in acting the blind lawyer. On the whole, his acting is decent, better than many of the actors in TVB. I like him, but he still has a lot of room for improvement in acting.
@kings I, on the other hand, hope he will work with new girls. For what I have seen, he is compatible with most of girls he was acted with, regardless first time or multiple time.
@coralie It is funny when opposite to you, on douban, most of the commenters praised that his acting was the best amongst the crew in Rule the world, just his age was not suitable for a 15 year-old role in the beginning. Some even think that his acting saved the series.
@orchid123 As much as I like Vincent, his acting is not stable. He can be good as the blind lawyer and then horrible in HOG3.
@jimmyszeto Last time when he had a concert he spent 6 months no filming. Then when he returned to film, he did not have any song or concert for almost 2 years.
@potatochip You are wrong chip. Raymond became popular even before smartphone was widely used. And its not at the declining stage of TVB era but at the peak era of tvb drama on earth with Heart of greed, rosy business and Forensic heroes dramas. Adam and Damian definitely have fans but not as much as Andy lau and raymond lam.
@coralie Actually he won award in 2015 for The Virtuous Queen of Han. The Hua Jing one in 2015 and he was Best drama actor. It is for acting. During 2015 2016, he gets some small awards for acting but I wont list as those awards are not important in your view. The Virtuous Queen of Han was in top 10 rating (best rating for spring season) and the later half was get higher rating than the first half. How can it is a flop? The worst one later still can get 1-2 billion views, and if you follow the viewship in China, you will know it is not too bad. In 2019, his series The Mask (share lead with Zhang Kai) is purchased by 2 big channel SMG and Zhejiang TV, 2 of big 4 in China. So regardless how much you hate him, he is still doing fine, It is not like he has no other way to go but to be back to TVB to compete with your beloved Vincent. No worry, he still has one leg out and will not threat your beloved Vincent. He is not even managed by TVB, he managed by his own Sky High Entertainment.
@kings Raymond doesn't belong in the same popularity category as Andy Lau. Raymond is certainly popular but to say Adam Cheng and Damien Lau is not equal to him is misguided. Raymond gained his popularity during the declining TV viewership/more vocal internet era while Adam and Damian rose during the golden years of TV. Their fans are older, but they are numerous and loyal. Adam is 72 years old, still acting, and his longevity is enviable.
@potatochip Yes, very good cast. Hope this movie will be a box-office hit.
400 guests? Wow, that's more than many weddings. Anyways, congrats to them. She is cute and I like her, "little attitude - yes my dad is silly - face" in the picture. Side note, it is slightly amusing how Aimee is now "Moses Chan and family".
@kings I am not sure how age is, or should be, that different for men and women. I rather have a good, more age matching actress than an untalented pretty faced young one. I think in your excitement for Raymond, you may cause a backlash by calling established actresses "old". I have my reservations about Charmaine, but she brought great energy and charisma to Line Walker. I could watch her scenes with Michael Miu or Benz all day. She also was the heart of the story with her 3 mothers death. Raymond's character was less challenging and was quite stereotypical "tortured hero pretending to be bad". He faltered during those scenes and was more enjoyable in the light ones. I do think he is still very popular, as evidenced by the increased activity on this website. TVB made a good business decision and whatever series they produce for him will be well watched. He will probably win the best actor award too, and I think it says something that this is predictable before the series has even started. Unless Kenneth gets it this year, he will have to continue to wait.
@cutie777 I would like to add Annie Liu and Nancy Wu to the list. Charmaine is still my top choice.
Nice looking trailer. The CGI actually doesn't look computer animated fake. Good cast. Interested.
@vodka Agreed absolutely. Charmaine was the limelight of the whole drama series "Line Walker". Without Charmaine as a partner, Raymond Lam would not have had that kind of high ratings.
Thank god no teh bao Charmaine who can’t act for nuts. Don’t mind Nancy or Selena. Would love Raymond to pair with Tavia again too.
@cutie777 I agree with your list. These actresses are likeable. I also am fond of Selena.
Line walker isn’t line walker without Charmaine...
I thought Benz had retired and moved to Singapore isn’t it? It would be nice if they can cast Mandy Wong, Zoe Tam, Tracy Chu or Elaine Yiu.
@vodka line walker got Raymond, benz hui and michael miu already good enough. and can add in some rookies no problem. For female lead really hard la the current one mostly cannot use. haha. Need a pretty girl with good acting? Is there any? ^^
@coralie acting skill is important but does not correlate with awards and popularity. Adam cheng and damian lau acting also tip top but they will never popular like Andy lau and Raymond lam. You still need the look and charisma to attract fans.
@coralie Those awards ceremony you mentioned are not the most prestigious movie award in Hong kong. And again awards does not mean that actor has tip top acting. That awards will count on your luck, likeliness and timing as well.
They should maybe do ‘The Mysteries of Love II’ instead if TVB are so desperate for a Raymond Lam sequel. Other than that let’s come up with new material please. I thought Raymond wants to try ‘different roles’ to satisfy his acting bug. If returns to TVB to do same character in Line Walker III then he is a liar and a hypocrite! If he comes back to portray a totally different character in an unrelated Line Walker then i’ll let him off...
Cannot wait for the film. Donnie said "never say never" they should probably bring Wing Chun legend whom was Bruce Lee's teacher other than Ip Man "Wong Shun Leung" and do a spin off of him. That would be very appealing. But I am a huge fan of the Ip Man films as well.
@anon No. Not that movie.As much as I love triad series, it’s time for a new fresh genre. If the CGI is good, this will be a big breakthrough...
@hazel Yeh...Ali has just easily been the best actress in the last couple of years...
I hope it's Nancy because Ali can't act.
Cutting-edge sci-fi? Is this the movie starring Nick Cheung and Sean Lau's poorly made flashback CGI scene that the producer deemed as revolutionary? Lol
@jimmyszeto Exactly! Starring in TVB series again is possibly the worst career move at this point for him. Shaw brothers would be a step above then HK movies then the mainland market. This move makes zero sense for him career-wise.
TYPICAL garbage TVB tactic. Lol
TVB is really milking LW
ABB ? sure there are more prettier and better Chinese actresses than her lol
happy Raymond is back but seriously Line Walker 3 and without Charmaine is a big no no... we'll have to see how this turns out, though I am happy to see Benz return as well.
Why are they continuing with the Line Walker series? Do they not have any other scripts they could have offered Raymond for his come-back????
cant wait! i love Gemma!
@kings Yeh...no one is good enough for your handsome Raymond...
@hanjin Get lost, idiot troll...
@littlefish ..if Lau Dan is a respectable man then he should know how to respect YM as the mother of his grandchild, right? YM has more right to raise her own daughter.
@gracechat25 doesn't matter how much respectable he is of a person or how much he love his grandchild, the fact is YM is the mother and should have given her a chance to care for the child ever since ! They should have respected YM as a parent. One reason the couple's marriage broke down is because of having too good of the in laws being the grandchild's parent instead of the real parents.
@orchid123 lol it will be disaster to team with kristal and Ali. both totally not compatible with raymond. Grace got married and too young. not suitable. Mandy wong's acting not mature enough. sisley choi looks likes tomboy and her expression also no suitable with raymond. Seriously unless charmaine sheh is back. They both most compatible and not married. If she also joins this project confirm a big hit.
@jimmyszeto oh yes Laud Dan is too respectable enough that's why he can decide that there's no one better in taking care of his grand daughter than himself. Is he better than the real mother here? Was YM givem a chance to be really close to her child? Even if their family is in showbiz for a long time...YM wealth surpasses them.! Yr the moron .
@potatochip male and female are different. Ideas are always there but for sure TVB gonna produce something great with raymond. And i hope tvb can come out with legend theme song again this time.
@orchid123 That is just an excuse. At one point he was acting in series after series plus starred in movies....
If they do have an alternate ending then let her live and leave him forever and return to her homeland. I think the CGI in here is prety good, better than a lot of recent dramas like The legends. I have to agree, her skin is already fair and pale and they still put a lot of foundation on her :/
@jimmyszeto That is why I said in the post " I won’t make any comment about his acting until later".
@orchid123 the last thing i saw from him was Rule the World and he was terrible in it. however, since he has a chance to shine now from the usual mediocrity given to him, i really hope he doesn't drop the ball and rely on his chok appeal.
I guess it is hard for an artiste to be successful and good in both acting and singing, esp. opening many concerts. Opening concerts will take away tons of time and energy from an artiste. If Raymond wants to excel in his acting, he needs to spend less time in singing and opening concerts, and spends more time in acting.
@orchid123 Let’s not repeat Raymond’s quotes from articles and re-evaluate once we have all watched his new movie performance....
@coralie Sorry, I meant "Line Walker", the first series produced by TVB. He paired up with Charmaine Sheh, and both of them did very well in that series. I don't disagree with you that Raymond cared about his chok look some years ago, but I am pretty sure that he has matured a lot after filming in China. In his new film "P Storm", he was playing a villain, and the character’s schizophrenic and bipolar. He said that the role allowed him to release the fire that’s been burning inside of him, letting the audience see another side of him. I won't make any comment about his acting until later, but I don't think he cares much about his chok look any more.
@orchid123 Are you mistaken? Line Walker 2 did not star Raymond... I still think Vincent outclasses Raymond in the acting dept. But Vincent has heart in his acting. Raymond lost passion a long time ago. Now all he cares about is looking chok.
I never particularly liked Raymond Lam, but I found that his acting had improved a lot in Line Walker 2. I did not watch Line Walker 3. Raymond is not a 1st class actor, like Damian Lau, Sean Lau, or Tony Leung, but he acts a lot better than any current siu sangs in TVB. The only one who is close to his acting now is Vincent Wong, but his popularity is not as high as Raymond Lam's. Raymond might have chosen to return to TVB for the following reasons: 1) His success in Mainland China is not as good as he has hoped. 2) He has left Hong Kong market for too long and a lot of people may have forgotten about him and his acting. It is good for him to return to TVB, still the biggest TV company in Hong Kong, which can boost his popularity again. 3) Raymond is a pretty loyal artiste/person, and he does not need to worry about money due to his rich family background. 4) He might have missed his friends and former colleagues in Hong Kong after living in China for so many years. Unfortunately, TVB is not the same now and does not produce big-budget drama series. Moreover, very few actresses can act. If Raymond is pared up with Sisley Choi, Grace Chan, Kristyl Tin, Mandy Wong, Raymond may not be able to showcase his acting. In any series, artistes need to have good partners to shine. I hope Raymond will get a good script, a good role, good partners and colleagues in his first come-back drama series in TVB to at least keep his status, if he cannot boost his popularity.
cant wait for this to come out!!!.........I have watched alot of american sci-fi movies but i dont really recall chinese one hopefully its good
@kings Raymond isn't exactly a spring chicken either. I think it says a lot that we are having trouble coming up with new series ideas and are limited to Line Walker 3. @jimmyszeto The options are disheartening, isn't it? Right now, there are more talented male actors than female that I enjoy watching. It use to be the opposite. TVB really, really needs to develop new talent.
OMG!!! OMG!!! Welcome back to Cantonese speaking roles!!! Missed you so much LF! Mom, sister and I are big fans!!! While we enjoyed your recent Mandarin series and movie, we are excited that you are coming home! Can't wait for your new works and concerts. See you soon! Good luck! <3 you LF!!!
@kings Jackie Chan did win an award...Golden Rooster Awards 2005 Best Actor (for New Police Story). And Hollywood Film Festival 1999 Actor of the Year. Right on his wiki page. Oh and everyone has an ability to judge others. The problem is figuring out whether they are GOOD at judging others. Raymond hasn't produced anything good in the past few years. We will see if he does better in the next few movies/dramas.
Not sure if anyone has rewatched but I felt Dicky was very lucky to win that New Talent singing Competition. He just imitated Leslie's voice weakly and didn't even sing with his genuine voice. His confidence and presence of brilliant though. Gallen was vocally much better than him but stiff and won nothing. Louis Yuen sung better and had presence. Many others were better. However, even in the early days, Dicky was known to make of effort to change his lines when acting. He is very talented and hardworking and deserves his success....
@jimmyszeto those you mentioned old already. I hope line walker 3 , producer able to find a compatible actress with raymond. And pls no Ali,grace or sisley in line walker 3. Like not very nice. But cant think of any which is good and pretty.
@coralie acting sucks or not hard to judge because there is no guidline to judge acting. Acting like nicholas tse also can get Best actor awards but godlike Jackie chan had never win any best actor. Most importantly tvb made a grand welcoming for raymond and it shows how much they treasure and love raymond. He already got all the money and fame. I think the only things left that he wants to get just best actor awards in tvb and hkfa. I am sure he will get it as long as he never give up. Remember to watch P storm , raymond acting damn good. Haha
@funnlim Won't watch this for the very reason you listed - seems like it's all pointless as the main lead never even tries to redeem himself. Some people love a good wallowing tragedy, though, even if the tragedy is mostly senseless. In the same vein, I don't understand White Snake either. Nobody gets their happy ending and all their efforts were pointless. The end.
@potatochip Raymond previously paired up with Charmaine, Michelle and Tavia at TVB. Now he will get Grace, Sisley and Ali....
I just watched through 10 very emotionally draining episodes, some I skipped some I watched scratching my head, wondering how our hero can expect our heroine to survive on only his true love when he basically ruined her entire life thrice over (maternal grandpa is one, dad and mom is second and her own self third). I read the synopsis and can't figure out what the heck is this series about. I was hoping it isn't that sort of tortorous love like Journey of Flower or those story of girl rising in ranks. It is neither I think. I am not sure what it is about. It is like he made the girl suffer and then REBOOT and hopefully she makes him suffer and what? REBOOT again? Never ending suffering? Reading this spoiler, whether either he suffers by her death or he suffers by her escape, it makes me feel their entire journey is pointless. Gonna start ep 11 aka the reboot so maybe I could be wrong and that this series has a point. The actress reminds me of a shorter Tang Yan, even her voice dub sounds familiar. She can definitely act but the make up dept put too much foundation on her and too much spotlight and so suffers from No Sweat syndrome. The hero is skinny, dramatically... not good. sorry but I am not enamoured by him. Not very princely or kingly or even ruthless or romantic. How can anything he do be romantic when at the back of my mind he kinda caused a lot of deaths. This series is weird. Hated the CGI. Hated the English title. Made it sound so chirpy, comedy, lighthearted romance drama when it is just so much pain and suffering and loss.
Wow. Even Stephen Chow is on the list for her 3rd son? This sounds like out of control!!
I thought he’s focused on his marriage instead?
How adorable. It seem like Rafael is going to have a big ear when he grow up.
I was on a TVB hiatus when Raymond became popular so only watched a few series with him. I liked him in Line Walker and Highs and Lows, but wasn't enthralled. I actually watched those series for Michael Miu (who I love for nostalgia and charm). I am re-watching Step into the Past. I am only a few episodes in. Raymond looks so different. I forgot how much I hated his acting and his character back then. Reminded me of a super annoying Gordon Lam. I think TVB is smart to get him back. It will generate buzz. Hopefully, it will be an ensemble of other good actors and a decent story. But please don't make him the focus of everything.
Why does evr1 has to have critism on her. Why we can we be kind And gave her Some cheer up And praise to be on the cover on Vogue? Why always So negative? Maybe there are suitable ladies, But vogue will not choose Some random girl on the cover. Angelababy has her own charisma, otherwise she cant be able to stand for so long in the showbusiness. Like Those varierty shows. She and Xiao Ming are perfect match!! Good job ABB!!
@coralie Yes.Agree. It's a win/win situation for both parties. Raymond is not good enough to oust the movie veterans such as Sean Lau, Louis Koo and Francis Ng etr so TVB is a good back up plan. 2019 will be a decisive year for Raymond with P Storm the key. If he gets rave reviews for his performance then he can make in as regular lead in movies. If not then he can relegate himself to TVB for the rest of his career til he quits to go back to help his family business....
@jimmyszeto I'm not saying TVB doesn't have the power to propel their chosen stars. They did that for Charmaine, who was pretty much in the same position as Raymond, until she returned in Line Walker, which revived her career. I'm saying they're inviting Raymond back to help bolster his popularity because it's been declining due to lackluster mainland projects. It's not a triumphant return, but more of a tactic to secure popularity in the HK market because his career is waning.
@kings You are called 'Kings' so you must be rather obsessed about Raymond. Unfortunately it means that your opinion is worthless....
@kings If you check his Wiki, none of his mainland dramas have done well except for 'The Virtuous Queen of Han,' and that one was pretty much a flop in the latter half as well. He has earned no awards since 2015-2016 (and the ones he did win are from singing, not acting.) And Raymond Lam doesn't make it to top 100 in popular mainland actors. You're right that he doesn't need acting, which is probably why his acting sucks!
can't help but sympathize that these girls having to bend down and get on one knee to please the audiences. peepers elate....
@coralie Lol sister, you must be a joker? Raymond's fans has never dropped but only increasing day after day. Only Andy Lau has tremendous fans but all his faithful fans also old already. Raymond's family already a billionaire, so you really think money is so important to him? Unlike many other artists are working hard because of money. Thanks god its because of passion/interest that keeps raymond in the industry. Because his dramas are awesome and his canto drama theme song are legends. Every person when reaching certain stages in life will have different thinking. We wont know why he chose to return. My analysis is below: a) He wanted to find a wife that knows how to speak cantanose thats why he chose to return to HK. b) TVB asking for his help to boast TVB popularity. Raymond is a very grateful person. He has the responsibility to help TVB because without tvb, he wont achieve so much! Unlike andy lau, stephen chow, chow yun fatt, and tony leung are like peanut that forgets the skin! c) He wants to get Best actor award in the next 5 years in tvb anniversary award and Hong kong film award. Maybe just for self-satisfaction purpose ^^ Hehe. really cannot wait to watch P storm next month. Very good acting from raymond. hehehe.
@coralie Since we can see with how TVB have helped promote a lot of ATV made redundant actor/actresses and lot of nobodies into TV stars, it's all up to TVB management to decide who to push into popularity. There are always a few who have shone as support; therefore TVB have promoted to lead but most of the time it is up to management who to had these winning lottery tickets to. TVB still has just about enough youth for TVB to prioritise one final push.....
@jimmyszeto i know, but they make his return sound like SUCH a big deal. he hasn't been a big deal since he left! and i think his fans have pretty much dropped in droves, too. so this TVB homecoming is not a triumphant return & in fact, is just there to help bolster his declining career.
@orchid123 i thought she looks dull and lifeless. i wonder if a western make-up artist did her b/c normally her photos look stunning.
@jimmyszeto That's why there's something called the law to assist parents with gaining custody or at least visitation rights if the parent wants to be involved in their kids' lives. This is obviously not the case here with Cecilia. Although she might've preferred no interaction with the father rather than announcing his identity. Still, if the father has any desire to see his kids, no one can stop him. Same in the West (unless the dad isn't even aware of his progeny.)
@coralie It might be unfair to blame the man because like in the West there are so many female celebrities who have kids from different fathers who do not want the children anything to do with man once the relationship has ended or arrange regular visits themselves. Just because Cecilia refuses to announce the identity of the father does not mean she is not communicating with the father. We all know that Cecilia has always loved kids and is a great mother so it will not affect her much.
@coralie It's a strategy of Raymond and his management team to return to TVB. Obviously, it is not the lure of TVB wages and good scripts to make his comeback because we know how TVB is. There's no denying that TVB is the best platform to increase popularity in HK. Unless an actor gets involved in a big hit, you can go unnoticed in the mainland with so many young heartthrobs leads and so many television stations. We know that Raymond has tried but he hasn't made that big hit. The endorsements and fans will come in droves, once Raymond is back regularly on the Hong Kong screens.
@tiffany I haven’t seen the drama but read enough to know the story, and I have to say if they change this into a happy ending, I will further look down on it lol. And I don’t like how the author changed it to he willing to die at her arrow either, I agree with many that it’s too easy for him. I also don’t like how the original end either :/ she could just live a happy life and knowing that kill him will be the best kind of ending. If she die, i just think it’s wrong lol. The idea that your death will torture the one you love has always been naive to me, especially when the guy is a D bag.
One of the few times where I agree with the original ending. LCY deserves to be alone, and it is relief for XF.
Is Raymond even popular anymore? He's been moping on the mainland market for a while and nothing representative has been produced. There is "A Step Into the Past" that's being filmed (his lucky break, IMO), but aside from that...he hasn't exactly been interesting. I felt like he stopped being interesting a few years before leaving TVB (when his chok style was established & unfortunately remained) and nothing great has come out since. So, no, I don't care to see him. I'd watch Vincent Wong any day.
What a jerk, though. To not even declare himself as the father of his own kid. I understand there's a lot of controversy surrounding this mystery child, and not everyone wants to be in the spotlight. But dude, you had a hand in making this happen. At the freaking least, take some responsibility for the kid.
@passingby2 LOL. But the baby is really cute, though. As expected from this couple.
@potatochip nicely spotted lol.
Talking about taking leaps forward, then going backwards again. Even if Raymond’s acting has improved in last few years, he will be coming back to crap TVB scripts and working alongside youngsters....
Great to hear that Raymond Come back for a drama. Good for Tvb. Lets hope he don’t have to deal with a trashscripts. About tv King This year even without the airing of EM 2.0, My vote will go to Kenneth Ma. -good actor, - loyalty -al always making the best of it. In 2020 Raymond can have it. Maybe they will write a third season of line Walker 3 Kenneth Ma was the Little brother of moses. Who will take revenge of those who kill his brother. Raymond can Come back as new SIP. Training new cadets to undercover. Sam Gor will also doing his Parts.:)
@passingby2 I've commented before how candid he was in another interview where he admitted to using many tactics (lies) to get more opportunities in the industry. Its difficult in this industry so I didn't think much of it. But he seems to lie on a regular basis to get his way even cheat a business owner out of meals regularly.
@orchid123 honestly I don't care if Raymond comes back or not cos i don't like his acting or singing. However I expect that he will be viewed as a big threat to these aforementioned guys as Raymond is a much bigger star (not to mention having strong backers) than all of them.
@orchid123 Angelababy looked pretty bad in the above photo. Her pose was no good ............. sitting with a bit of hunch back.
I also think Crystal Liu (or Liu Yifei) is a better choice . She is young and prettier than Angelababy. Liu possesses the same qualifications - modelling, acting and singing. She has filmed international movies and drama series. My second choice Yang Mi. She is also pretty, and is around the same age. Both of them can represent Asia on the cover of the American Vogue.
@littlefish I would pick any of the Chinese artists mentioned in this thread. "Asians don't raisin", any of them would look like they're in the same age group as the other actresses
@passingby2 I must say that Raymond is a lot better than Ruco (both look and acting skills), and Ben (more mature, and is good for certain roles only). Vincent is younger than Raymond and he acts well. He will be a major competitor for Raymond among all siu sangs.
@littlefish oh, thank you for clarifying.
Finally! Is about time he come back. He is the hottest actor.
Career-wise, decent move if he's returning for Shaw Brother on a per-series basis, terrible move if it's a long-term signing with TVB.
Baby Rafael is so cute staring at his Daddy at his very young age (1-month old only). Usually babies sleep most of the day.
He probably learned to lie many times as a child out of survival. To be physically abused as a child, would have taken both an emotional and psychological toll on him and as a result shaped the type of person he is today..
@funnlim I'm not 100% sure but from what I've heard of Bai Lu & Xu Kai, I think the drama is actually not dubbed. It sounds like their original voices. I'm close to 100% sure for Bai Lu but IDK about Xu Kai as I haven't heard him speak quite as much...but he basically sounds the same as he does in interviews and BTS clips, so if he's dubbed, they must have used someone who sounds like his brother. There are a lot of technical issues with the drama (scenes are cut wrong, music abruptly stops/starts/overlaps, stuff is just out of order and all over the place so the storyline is made to be hard to follow even though it really shouldn't be) but overall it's great compared to the rest. The acting is great and I actually really like the 2nd female lead, who does a LOT of the earlier scenes as she plays both characters. Xu Kai's character is reserved but he's expressive enough in the ways that matter for his character - a bit awkward, a bit shy, just kind of cute/"adorkable." You can see in the behind the scenes clips that he and Bai Lu are probably dating IRL as the rumors have it - there were a few kissing scenes that definitely turned into REAL kissing scenes, unless the actors these days use tongue LMAO The biggest technical issue is that the 5 minutes of cut scene before the opening credits are taken from somewhere in the middle of the episode, so often you see the climax of the main fight from the episode, which is stupid and out of place. And then they don't even show it again DURING the episode, so as you're watching there's a lead up to the fight and then it cuts right over it and the characters are left standing there. Really makes you wonder WTH is the director thinking with the editing. On the plus side, there aren't excessive flashbacks (except for that one dragon scene, you will know exactly what I mean) and pretty few repeated scenes in general, at least up to ep 30. Weirdly the main songs of OST also aren't played very much in drama. The CGI is awful in a lot of parts and I wish chinese directors would stop using it for simple things like ropes & chains, which always "float" on the actors and looks so stupid. Using real props would be cheaper and look better, but they're in love with bad & unnecessary CGI.
Yess!! I miss him a lot. So excited! Cant wait. Hope they give him a good script tho :/
@jimmyszeto I was about to say the same. That’s a pretty ugly looking neon green cake. It looked like they tried too hard with the tennis theme and failed.. It wasn’t tastefully done and looked like random items stuck on the cake.
Yay!! Quite like Raymond. Maybe will watch tvb dramas again. Have stopped watching entirely after Raymond’s generation of actors/actresses left. The quality of the newbies were pretty crap
@snowy in the article I read, it mentioned Liu Wen and another Chinese model have graced the US Vogue. So I think the distinction here is Asian stars that make it in Asia first, and that isn’t purely models. Those two Chinese models are first well known in the international stage rather than their hometown (I could be wrong) but they exploded in the international runway (VS angels). Whereas these “stars” are mainly actresses (multi-talents rather than just being purely models), who dominated their hometown then spread to the US.
I thought the first Chinese to be on the cover of US Vouge is LiuWen

How could they forget about Dickson Yu???? They are always posting pictures together
@mike yeah....lying about forgetting to bring his wallet. But this wasn't the only time he lied. To get a leg up in the new talent singing competition, he also lied that he was Leslie Cheung's cousin.
I'm shocked that he chose to return to TVB. As the saying goes "a good horse does not eat grass that it has left behind ". It must be a very attractive package that TVB offered, perhaps dangling a Best Actor award in his face? So does that mean that Ruco, Ben and Vincent can step aside now?
Baby is thinking "that must be my grandpa"........
Will LF being the hero to save TVB's failing artist line-up?
When normal people don't have money to eat out, they would save money by bringing their own lunch. Not Dickie! He chooses instead to eat at the cafe and don't intend on paying...
While TVB has gone down the gutters in recent years, I'm kind of excited for Raymond's return. He's a competent actor and still way better than the new siu sangs. His return also means that Chau Pakho can finally GTFO with his mediocre acting and lousy singing.
@niangniang In America, when people say Asian, they are referring to East Asian. In Europe, when people say Asian, they are referring to West Asian. Confusing isn't it.
@hohliu recently I just read an article saying how NiNi is so talented, and beautiful and has zero recognition in hk lol. So as much as I agree with you that she’s beautiful and talented, she isn’t as popular as YM or crystal Liu.
@niangniang they are Asian as well, however, I think they were talking about east Asia, India is west Asia, and indian gene is more middle eastern (i.e more European mix than Asian Asian lol). So yea, they didn’t clarify clearly enough
@jimmyszeto And there will always be plenty of men who like the act of baby making but not the responsibility of having a baby. I don't really follow her, but I do give her credit for knowing that she is better off taking care of her kids on her own with out relying on a partner.
Baby Rafa is so cute looking up at Kevin like that. He is going to be a good father. I like the little touch of having a clay court on the cake to honor the best clay court tennis player ever.
COVA is a high end coffee shop. They might have sent it free of charge (knowing that Kevin loves tennis). My friends and I guessed that they named their son after Rafael Nadal!
"The other Asian star sharing the spotlight with Angelababy is South Korean actress Doona Bae." How about "Indian actress Deepika Padukone"? Isn't India in Asia???
@hohliu Oh yes!! NiNi, I forget about her....She is great, love her a lot...
Just ew. Idk how it's possible ABB is so popular. Her acting is known to suck and her face is only so-so to me. Well, then again, they chose Crystal Liu for Mulan...so there's that.
@littlefish yeah but again, Michelle = near flawless English speaker. She has an accent but she has the proper grammar and fluency and media savviness to make an impact. still I don't consider her a household name in Hollywood.
Of course she has, what sort of Man will allow a woman to face the world with her new baby alone with so many speculations. If they have not broken up, I expect the baby will not have a blank in the birth certificate.
@jimmyszeto I feel Nini will be a great choice too. She is really one of the most talented stars today.
@littlefish I will prefer if Nini was chosen. She is beautiful, talented, popular and chic!!
@jimmyszeto I will suggest NiNi in regards to her age, looks, talents and achievements.
@niangniang I will put up NiNi!!
Don't worry. There will be more children to come from more different fathers. Cecilia loves children...
@littlefish I think they should at least picked crystal liu or even yang mi! They have more deserving representative works.
@snoopy then I would pick Sun Li lol! I thought she was older xD but yea, since she’s in her 30s, which I’m sure all these women are, she’s the best candidate for China! However, I think ABB got selected here because apart from the Indian girl, all of them feature in a Hollywood blockbuster (at least most of them I’ve seen in a big movie). But yea, if going by pure talents, should be Sun Li hand down!
A pity.Kevin went out of his way to design a tennis themed cake, it just looks like a cheap icing cake you can get out of a local supermarket chain....
@snoopy I'll put Sun Li up. The Americans are clueless...
@littlefish Sun Li is only 36 years old...
@littlefish I have to agree with you...Both AB and Dilireba are great in modeling even though their acting are just so so....But so are most of the Mainland actresses right now.... I can’t think of anyone that’s more qualified than AB...LOL...
I have to agree they shouldn’t have pick ABB. The article also should have included the bit where vogue messed it up and have Tiffany Tang picture instead of ABB lol, or how she used the same concept as she did for vogue (Asian/Chinese?). But apart from Gong Li, Sun Li, Zhang Ziyi (I think too old, this group seems to be in their 30s), I can’t think of anyone that is model pretty with great acting skill :/ Dilireba is model pretty but her acting is ok only, and obviously not as famous as ABB. So while ABB don’t seem to be the right choice, it’s hard to come up with another choice lol
@coralie I love the Orville, too, but that’s beside the point, we are not discussing which one is better. The point is if Michelle aren’t popular, they wouldn’t rewrite her role to include more of her for the second season. They are thinking she’s gonna save that series, that is a big deal for an Asian actress. And that speaks volume about her star power. Also a lot started the show because they heavily advertised STD with Michelle being on the helm or at least major support cast (recurring character), but the second she got killed off, I basically couldn’t stand that series for long.
Congrats Ady. I have been waiting for this great news. the shoes (baby boy is on the way).
Anita was kept as mistress at young age like 18 or early 20s. Suddenly later she married Chilam
Woahh isnt Terence Yin the guy who played the role of a vampire alongside Danson Tang? He's kinda old isn't he?
@littlefish she can speak English like a native. very few if any grammatical errors. also heard the orville is better than STD. I personally love the orville.
@funnlim Uhm, HSDS has rave reviews? So far I’ve only seen bad talk about it lol, apart from a pretty cast, nothing else seems to be stood out? Dubbing as in using another actor’s voice? Which is like 90% of the drama. Didn’t know minglan use their own voice. Regarding Xu Kai, I came in without watching yanxi, and he did the role very well, I couldn’t complain lol, he fits the role very well :) I didn’t check the rating, but my impression is GMP is topping the rating chart, then the legends, then HSDS. In term of acting, I think the legends ace the other two (from main to supporting casts). In term of plot, the legends is a lot more refreshing lol. Also the chemistry is very good :) the only thing bad about the legends is it doesn’t have the budget of GMP, and so the editing suffered quite a great deal, plus silly cuts
@potatochip yea, I think it’s fine to have a bit of an accent, especially if the character supposed to be a migrant :) no accent English is needed though, if the character was born oversea
@funnlim I’m not the type that look at a picture and say they are pretty lol. I find an actor/actress more beautiful as they perform their roles :) Gemma in crazy rich was sultry lol, very beautiful and such grace :)
@coralie uh, Michelle Yeoh is sooo well known that her role in Star Trek discovery got rewritten because the fans want to see more of her after 2 eps of season 1! Lol. Now she’s back for season 2, after being killed off so early in s1
@funnlim lol, it might go the route of potentially gay lover, but then he’s torn between his wife and his gay lover? But in the end, choose his wife due to traditions >_>? I guess the story is so love focus and needed to be stretched out, so they can’t go the guardian route
@m0m0 Uhm, ruby’s Series, Qing Shi Huang Fei used that neck wrap. And they finished filming 1 month before GOT. That idea has been used before GOT by chinese production company, so it’s not like GOT started it.
@jimmyszeto for sure, you can keep an eye for your partner, for sure you can gloat when you have such beautiful partner, just tone it down a bit lol. I would love to read their news without hearing me me me me and how me has a hold on Chilam. I’m sorry but as much as I love Chilam, who in their right mind still fawn over him now lol -.- in term of young upcoming actresses lol. They would rather date fresher meat lol
@funnlim Michelle Yeoh can speak English natively and flawlessly. And she's in demand because of it. ZZY & Gong Li have no relevancy, unless it's to get them to play some Asian roles. Not like Lucy Liu, Sandra Oh, and the rest I've mentioned. Charlie's Angels, ring a bell? Sandra Oh is a host in the Oscars and she became famous from Grey's Anatomy as a lead actress. They are a household name. It is absolutely about whether they can speak English natively or not. That's why I worry for Fala and whether she will make it in this industry when her English isn't native. It is very limiting for her. I'm not sure how Liu Yifei will fare once Mulan comes out, but from my understanding, her English isn't exactly fluent either. Depending on whether she can handle American media will decide where she stands in Hollywood. Personally i dont think she'll go far. Her acting sucks (hope Mulan proves me wrong) and there's no "It" factor in her.
@funnlim i am talking about asian stars from asia not being able to break into mainstream hollywood awareness. and that's mostly because of their inability to communicate effectively in english which directly translates to less notoriety because they're not able to do all required interviews, publicity, etc. Jet Li, Jackie Chan and to a lesser extent Chow Yun Fat are only known for their martial arts films and little else. How many people actually look for them outside of those roles? I'm not saying i don't respect or admire these stars because I do. But i've seen how Hollywood works and these stars won't make it precisely because of the language barrier. Unless they can really immerse themselves into Hollywood life + speak English like a native, their career is pretty much limited.
@coralie God forbid Jackie will try to act. I don't like Jackie but like Chow Yun Fatt and Jet Li, typecast or not, they are beyond star there. When hollywood bows to them you know they are just stars. Why dismiss them? What mold to break? what are you talking about? They are good at something and they continue at that something.
@coralie Michelle Yeoh was in recent blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians, She was in Guardians of the Galaxy. She is in Star Trek series as captain, etc. She is not in every movie because she doesn't need to nor want to. But she is in demand. She speaks with Malaysian accent. Zhang Ziyi basically packed her bags but sure has some staying power. There's also Gong Li who is more glamour than actress. There's Liu Yifei who is up and coming. I am not sure how good is her english or accented or not. Lucy Liu is still tv actress. Sandra Oh is still tv actress. They are native because they were either born there or lived there since young., But are they very famous? No.Gemma is more glamour, yes up and coming but still up and coming. The rest are still up and coming. It is not about native speakers or not. It is whether there is a right role at the right time. English can be improved. Image can be improved. Whether native or not, doesn't matter as long as can speak English.
@funnlim Michelle yeoh - malaysian - can speak fluent english and can communicate effectively with publicists/interviewers/audience. But how many actually know, know her? She hasn't really dug trenches into Hollywood life And thus aside from the occasional supporting roles as again, martial arts expert or Asian-required role, hasn't done much. Zhang Ziyi... she's basically packed her bags and left Hollywood too. How many know about her nowadays aside from Asians? I'm talking lasting power in Hollywood that's not pigeonholed into certain archetypes. Sandra Oh, Lucy Liu are very good examples of a native English speakers who have made it and are known by Hollywood. Now we have Gemma, Constance, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong to add a new generation of Hollywood stars.
@funnlim they're typecasted and can't break out of that mold. Aside from knowing them as martial arts film experts, what else is there?
@funnlim It's cheap and tacky with a crappy rip off Jack the Ripper plot. Littered with a load of crap actors as support. Just Adia walking back into TVB acting well with relative ease is only bright spark of this drama.Her chemistry with Kaman Kong is good. Alice Chan character is cartoonnish and she is showing her age. She is more suitable for serious roles....
So far there are 3 cdramas that I've read rave reviews. This one, HSDS and Good Bye My princess. I am preparing to watch the latter 2 but this one.. is it that good? Xu Kai isn't an expressive actor. I am not sure.. and I am sick of dubbing. I love Ming Lan because the non dubbing. Made me hate William Feng less, because I love his accent.
Read some good reviews for this series, haven't watched, now not planning to watch. I just feel the costume, everything feels so dated.
@mike Since not married, it is open to all. And they stayed married, loving, so proves her point that he is better with her.
@bearbear I watched an interview where Mimi says she pursued Power when she heard his relationship with his girlfriends was unstable.
@potatochip It only happens in the mainland though. It won't change because there are so many rags to riches businessmen without decent manners or etiquette. It will take a few generations at the very least to make big changes.
@littlefish I don't quite like Gemma. I find her sulky. But maybe that's her posing you know? Nicole Kidman is an amazing actress who doesn't care what role as long as good role. For me quite humble. I think she eased off the botox these few years.
@daodao That's what I thought. He's more Western than Chinese when he first broke out. Many are ABC, BBC, CBC, A(ustalian)BC, some BC.
@coralie Which is why there are criticisms for Crazy Rich Asians when they all speak with English accent and yet are supposed to be Singaporean Chinese. However I will quote 2 names who succeeded despite accent, 1 especially speaks good english but with local accent. Michelle yeoh and Zhang Ziyi. They both did well. Point is good roles and a good publicist. GO FALA!!
@tungamy I think changing that changes the entire story if the entire story is about forbidden love? Not sure about the original story.
@coralie Jackie and Jet Li survived and they speak terrible english accent and grammatically.
@msxie0714 it's not just accents, it's also grammar and being able to communicate effectively with the audience. It means being able to do lots of talk shows and do lots of reporter's interviews. You can say the likes of JC and Li BingBing has done those, too, but their interviews were limited. They cannot be immersed in Hollywood culture and therefore aside from JC who has a legendary position in martial arts films, they can't break out. Even Arnold's roles are limited because of his heavy accent. The ones who are breaking out include Gemma, Constance, Ken Jeong, Awkwafina...and the main common denominator? All native English speakers and savvy media handlers. Sofia Vergara has an accent, but she communicates well with the media and because she's Hispanic, it's much easier for her to communicate in English. Basically all of them have some sort of romance language that helps to make it easy to understand and tie in English. Asians on the other hand, would find it difficult
@littlefish I brought up Nicole Kidman because she was the obvious example since they are going to be working together. Nicole has been a great actress for over thirty years, but she was able to hide her accent when she first started in the US. My comparison is Nicole at the beginning stages of her career, not the Oscar Best Actress level now. Countless other actors and actresses are able to hide their accents and natural speaking patterns and tones. That is part of the hard work they put in for their roles. But even if Fala can't disguise it 100% like Daniel Dae Kim or Yunjin Kim, I don't think it is detrimental. It is also disheartening that Asian accents are looked down upon but others are valued. That isn't directed at you, but at the larger general audience. Maybe if they heard it more often, they would no longer stigmatize it.
@jimmyszeto Yes, men are also pressured into drinking. It is the toxic masculinity way of showing dominance. Also agree hat this will not change overnight. It probably won't change in a decade even. But the first steps towards change is bringing awareness, calling it out and trying to influence change.
@jimmyszeto If he broke up with his ex because he felt for his then pursuer.......
Like this drama. In fact it's the only one I am currently watching
@myxx But Fala is superwoman. Very few can do what she did. There was thousands of millions for her if she went to the mainland. She was also perfect for making a career in HK movies too but they are dominated by Male veterans. Most actresses are just used as flower vases like Michelle was. Michelle just went up to mainland and mopped all all the money therefore could hire the likes of Raymond Lam to star in her series. Also all the other TVB actresses which have left. Easy money temptation...
Kind of feel sorry for her, she always seems to get the bad press and never for positive news. I think she should've stayed in hong kong instead of moving to china. She seems like someone that likes freedom of expression/speech - that is not something people can do successfully in china. Aren't men in china still pretty sexist? Don't think they'll treat any sort of business woman with respect. But good on her for standing her ground! Just a thought - it would've been great if she took the route Fala did - moving back to NY after leaving tvb and trying out for American roles... oh well
@passingby2 That was before. That’s the problem with the young girls. Married men pursue and eventually they cave in....
@mike Not the 3rd party as long as Power Chan broke up with his girlfriend before they were properly together...
@tungamy There will be the likes of Hugo Ng as support. However this will be the first time Matthew hasn’t the help of a veteran lead to take away the pressure. There will be nowhere to hide...
That's great! Good on Fala! Hope it is a decent role and they don't just make her the asian sidekick/extra. Can tell she has high aspirations and has worked really hard for this (moving back to the US, studying at Julliard etc), unlike the other tvb actresses that just wants to break into the chinese market. Looking forward to seeing her in westernised make up! So sick of seeing all the tvb actresses looking identical in the hong kong style pasty make up. I hope she does well!!
@passingby2 That was before Chilam. She admitted she was wrong and selfish at that time.
@jimmyszeto I'm guessing the veteran actors (are they in supporting/minor roles?) will give them some pointers if need be. Might end up being a drama to watch to support the veterans in the sidelines
@joycek I think she played/plays golf
@funnlim I haven't read the story but I think the homosexual relationship between the two main guys is going to be changed to friendship (?) due to censorship in China. That may be the important thing that's changed
@mike Given that she perfected Cantonese in a few years of being in TVB, I'm pretty sure her English should be fine. She went to school there before and as you said, spent more time for Juilliard :)
@aktf she just finished her Masters in Juilliard, I'm pretty sure she can act
Another reason why they got registered on May 27th is that in Mandarin it sounds like 我爱妻: "I love my wife"
@coralie Heavy accents of Sophie Vergara, Salma Hayak, Arnold Schwarzennegar haven't deterred their success in Hollywood. But Asians are dissed for even the slightest accents, with the exception of Gemma Chan's Brit accent.
Guys, give her a chance. Remember she spent a few years in Julliard after she left TVB. Surely, her English must have improved in those years and her acting can't get any worse than before she left. I look forward to watching it just to give this series a chance and support another Asian in Hollywood.
@potatochip Uhm, you are talking about a lady who has been living in the state more than her hometown lol, and her experience in filming is older than fala’s living age lol (possibly - again, I couldn’t be bothered to check the years but you know what I mean lol)
@jimmyszeto I think she did overuse Botox :/ I can’t remember if she did any knife works. But yea, she was sooooo stunning before she hit 50 lol
"The couple met in 2002 while filming Lofty Waters Verdant Bow . Mimi admitted to being the pursuer, taking the initiative to invite Power out for milk tea. Although Power had a girlfriend at the time, he had a change of heart when Mimi pursued him." So Mimi was a 3rd party?
@daodao I wasn’t sure, and couldn’t be bother to check. All I know is he supposed to be good at English because he live a long long time oversea, however, the movie with Maggie Q, naked weapon, his English was just ok lol. I wouldn’t call it down right terrible, but it’s not good either lol. And that’s my point: if the director wants it sound like a hk speaking English, then he achieve it. If the director just wants English, and they did one take, and he thinks it’s fine, then we have crappy English speaking scene that doesn’t really reflect how well he can speak English.
The costumes in MFP are so gaudy. If there is a remake, hope the aesthetics follow example of Yanxi Palace
@jimmyszeto wait...wasn't she the third party in some rich guy's marriage? Or was that before Chilam?
I can totally see Xu Kai as the fifth prince. Yang zishan does not fit the role as xiaoyanzi..
Fala cant really act.. couldnt finish any dramas she was in. But at least she's better than linda, lol. Heard she went to new york for school? i wonder is she's better now or still the same:/
@passingby2 No. Anita has never been known to have cheated on Chilam and Chilam has never known to have cheated on Anita. Every marriage has its difficulties but they are still going strong after 2-3 decades. They obviously see each other as the bigger gem rather than themselves and they have every reason to do so...
@potatochip In other countries it’s not like that. Just a glass of wine and a sip for the upper class businessmen and businesswomen. We have to remember that in China, this is not the same. Many businessmen from very low class and poor educational backgrounds have become rich and this has always been their way to do business. Like any culture, it Can’t change overnight...
@potatochip Men too will have to drink till they puke. Women will have to drink but not as much. That’s business in China. The likes of Kent Tong has mentioned. It’s unhealthy and damaging but that’s the way it works in China. Many can’t keep it up...
@potatochip Anita has set the example as next gen strong, confident and assertive woman. Even as a man I can see the distinguishing attributes in comparison to other HK women. It’s astonishing that instead of welcoming her with open arms, girl fans are critcising her. That’s crazy! Remember Anita already possessed this confidence in early 1990s straight after the HK pageant. Can we name anyone else that have shown this auru of confidence at that age? Maybe GEM and that is it...
@potatochip This is a big test for Matthew. There is no experienced lead here to help out. The focus will all be on the young actor/actresses...
Is Chung yao dead, how come we are not sure if she's the producer? Is there no more copyrights on that story? I thought there is a big dispute between her and Yu Zheng, are they back together already? Xu Kai and Zhang Zhehan are from his agency? Anyway it is an interesting news if this is true, sounds like a big mess! Alec Su as emperor...we all like Alec and I would be happy to hear of his return to filming, but he probably still have a baby face? The emperor should look strict for this particular story. Janice looks like a little girl, she would not be a match for Ziwei at all. No complaint about casting her as XYZ instead. While Yangzi Shan looks extremely mature, she would not be a good match for XYZ at all either. I can picture her as ZW better.
His acting hasn't been interesting to me so far, but I do think it is good for him to have a chance to lead. This will give him the necessary push to mature. And goodness knows, TVB needs younger stars.
I am glad she is speaking out about this and being a great role model. Not only about extreme dieting, but also depression. The more we talk about it, maybe we can reduce the stigma and get people properly treated. I really admire all of her talents.
@funnlim Yes, I agree. I don't know the original story, but giving the gay protagonist an admirable wife to potentially betray seems like a butchering of the story.
She is beautiful, intelligent, and daring. People are threatened by her confidence. They prefer docile women, but Chilam is lucky and smart enough to know who the real gem in the relationship is.
Very cool. There are so many great shows, so little time. I can't wait to see how her acting has matured. And i think just like Nicole Kidman is able to hide her Australian accent, Fala will be able to hide her Chinese one (if needed).
@jimmyszeto That really puts women at a disadvantage. How can women ever succeed in business? Maybe she did intend to drink but something about them alerted her instincts that this isn't right. The better change is not that women should stay home, or do things they are uncomfortable with, but rather for honorable people to listen to each other and respect their boundaries.
While she was with Chilam she cheated on him with the married rich guy?
@potatochip The best solution is -don’t go. 100/100 you will be asked to drink. The more you refuse then the more you get asked. That’s how it works over there....
Latest news—-Jessica Hsuan, Myolie in Liverpool now probably preparing for this show. Flora’s husband has family in Liverpool.They have booked up a table to the restaurant I usually go to....
@jimmyszeto I am glad you agree that in a vulnerable position, you would walk away. But how can you prove that you were in a vulnerable position? Who gets to decide? Certainly not me. I am not you, I was not there at the time and I was not in that exact situation. My point is, only the person in that situation can decide if he or she felt threatened. I see this scenario with 3 potential outcomes: 1. She was wrong. The businessmen did not have bad intentions. She walked away and lost a business deal. 2. She was right. The businessmen had bad intentions. She walked away. She lost a business deal. But she avoided being raped. 3. She was right. The businessmen had bad intentions. She stayed. She drank. She was raped. (And then she would be criticized for staying. She would be demonized for drinking) 2 out of 3 scenarios she was right. All 3 she loses, but in differing degrees. What do the businessmen lose? No one knows who they were. Privately, if they were good guys, they would be rightfully pissed. But then they just return to their normal rich lives. If they had bad intentions, hopefully, this warns them not to try this with another female. (Honestly, I doubt that they would learn a lesson). Imagine if your wife or sister went to a party with friends. She calls you and said, some guys that the girls know are making her uncomfortable. She wants to leave. Would you say: It's a party. People drink and get crazy. Why don't you stay to see if they are good guys or if they are going to rape you? Uh, I don't think so. And you sound annoyed that she posted on social media. That's what people do now. They post big things. They post mundane things like what they ate. Social media is a stream of consciousness. I think it speaks volumes that there are countless women who say, "Been there sister". Or "I have experienced that, I wish I also left." I think it brings awareness to the dangers women face. It gives them strength to leave when they feel threatened. It places the blame where it should be placed - men not respecting women's autonomy. Again, what have these men lost? The risks are far too great for women not to listen to their instincts.
@littlefish isn't Daniel Wu born and raised in CA? LOL
@funnlim that is my concern as well, HBO series is rather daring for an Asian actress, But will check it out since most of nicole’s Tv series is quite highly rated
@littlefish I remember I found Nicole Kidman as absolutely stunning in Batman Forever when I was a child. She has obviously ruined her looks like most celebrities through excessive surgery.
@m0m0 Uhm, I never found Fala to be shockingly beautiful, and only saw Gemma in crazy rich and I have to admit, Gemma is very beautiful, but I think what won me over is her aura, she’s indeed sultry and graceful :) (though I understand that if you meet fala irl, and felt she was shockingly beautiful, then fair enough, because I met Nicole kidman’s sister irl, and before that meeting, I always felt she is not pretty, not like Nicole, but when I saw her irl, there is this shockingly beauty thing radiant out of her face lol! Some people are more attractive irl than on screen is what I’m trying to say :) ) I love Nicole Kidman, always do, even now, however, she used too much Botox, I’m kinda sad :( I rather see them ages gracefully than use Botox and destroy their face :(
@coralie also the speed and the length of her dialogue will help. If all she has to say was 3 words to 5 words sentences, it’s easier to hide your weak language skill. Just because she will appear on 4eps out of 6, doesn’t mean she will be in it talking non stop with Nicole for 15mins each eps lol. Also attitudes toward learning English, many Asian who moves overseas still hang out with their Asian friends, and felt that if they change their English to be perfect like westerners, they get teased (depend on the friends, but the whole peer pressure thing is quite real). Also who you hang out with might also determine how willing you are at trying to improve your language skills, if you see that talking to your friends and they understand you, then why improve? If you date a westerner or hang out with westerners, there will always be occasions where your language skill will come to the surface (even my native Australian friends’s English were surface because she can’t use certain word correctly in term of writing), and may make you conscious that you are lacking in this or that, and overall, you will improve. I think Daniel Wu, when he was young, his English wasn’t that great, despite being oversea for quite a long time? But when he did that western tv series, you can’t tell. I think that also boil down to the filming process, if the director thinks it’s good enough, it’s good enough. But if they think the English speaking part isn’t clear, they will perfect it? For a HBO series, I think they will nail it. My question is will it has nudity lol, because I just have this impression that most HBO series are quite daring (I don’t watch any of them lol, not even GOT, I checked out maybe 3-5eps of GOT but decided it wasn’t for me lol)
@littlefish Anita likes to gloat that she has hold of a real cool gem in Chilam and he belongs to her only. She does enjoy rubbing it in. I don't blame her as well because I will be doing the same if I had such a beautiful partner. If my wife was beautiful and was works with heaps of handsome men, I would be keeping an eye on her too...
@m0m0 Anne Heung said she wanted to make a comeback the other week on that weekly singing show. She has to understand that leaving TVB as crap actress then making a comeback she is still the same crap actress. People don't just forget because she took a break...
@orchid123 Even in Cantonese drama series/movies, an artiste's voice helps a lot in his/her acting skills.
@jimmyszeto I like her, before and after Chilam. However, as much as I like her, if she just stop being such a control freak, I would like her more. On the article, I said I can’t stand she keeps talking about her control nature on Chilam, doesn’t mean I hate her. It just started to grated more on me, because it felt like she’s gloating over the fact that she controls Chilam, and I just felt after so many years, you can let it go >_> and tone it down a bit. You can be straight forward, I always like that sort of people, but need to move on from talking about controlling Chilam lol. (I don’t say anything about her control nature until it’s like well over 6mo-1yr after so many articles on here talking about how controlling she was of Chilam, 1-3 article is enough, more than 5, and many shows and always talk about that is just tooo much) Also it’s true that she was brave to go for what she wants, but she possibly also feel Chilam will be the shy one and wouldn’t dare ask her out because she’s so successful, all the while liking her a lot. If you can read the cues, asking isn’t that hard lol. Also it seems these days, you must either like or dislike someone, you can’t like that person for these set of qualities, while discuss the negative set of quality you dislike from that person. But then I never really dislike anyone strongly, unless it’s the kardashian lol!
@m0m0 Tone of voice (loud and clear, with high and low pitch, intonation, and not monotone), articulation of words, pace of speaking, facial expressions, and, of course, self-confidence will make a speaker outstanding in public speaking or acting. I hope Fala Chen knows that, and will put all together to present herself well in any shows, movies or drama series.
@jimmyszeto you're totally on-point... look at linda chung's acting skills... i am so glad she's no longer on screen. don't do a comeback
@orchid123 I agree.That's what fans and netizens don't understand. We all have flaws but most celebrities try and portray themselves as perfect and the fans believe it. Anita just displays her real genuine personality which is what you see is what you get. Frankly, I see a lot more positives about Anita than flaws. The main reason why netizens hate her is because she is married to Chilam and they are jealous of her. What There are a plenty of celebrities who are fake in front of the cameras and are known to be terribly nasty people behind the scenes within the staff circle.
@coralie what i recently heard at a convention about what makes a person appear to have good language skills. how well one is able to carry him/herself is dependent on how confident not on the actual language ability. one with high language skills could still be unclear if she lacks confidence. on the other hand, one with a low language ability could still sound valid and on-point given a limited vocabulary. i experience it myself with an exceptionally smart gentlemen, native speaker. fully capable to express his ideas in a normal conversation but very hard to understand when speaking to a group because of anxiety issues. Another example, another gentlemen, of eastern asian decent who had strong accent, he was able to carry himself extremely well in an academic discussion with another professor. i was shock at how articulate that person was at expressing his thoughts despite cearly english was not his native tongue.
@jimmyszeto I also like Anita Yuen's character. She is honest, brave, and straight-forward in her conversations. I would rather have her than some artistes who talks nicely but acts terribly in real life (not in movies or drama series). Too many artistes in Hong Kong are fake and phony.
@m0m0 sigh, that's the problem - the language barrier. how many english-challenged actresses do you know in hollywood? in order to make it, you not only have to act well, but be able to blend in with the crowd. that's one reason why gemma chan/constance wu is so popular right now. they're both native English speakers & are absolutely stunning. their english might not matter when they're acting, but being an actress in this day and age means you have to be savvy with handling the media as well. and i don't know how fala would be able to achieve that, given her foreign background. it adds a layer of separation.
@m0m0 We have to give Fala enormous credit. While other former TVB leads were churning out the same old crap roles at TVB with zero improvement in acting (Tavia an Myolie etr), Fala has gone out of her comfort zone and went to take on the world and work towards her ambitions. Whether she will find success or not, this is an incredible achievement to get casted in a decent role in America.....
Typical storyline. But I am not complaining. if done well could be entertaining.
@funnlim i agree, it is definitely a breakthrough. you gotta start somewhere no matter who you are. getting cast in any role in the west is like hitting the lottery.
@coralie i remember she did an interview a while back and i thought it was okay. she had an accent but not as strong compared to someone w/ similiar background. given that she graduated from jillard and her western bf, i am sure that her english level has only gone up. plus, they give you yours lines, so it is a matter of remembering and presenting them.
@tmbern i don't think she looks terrible but i do agree w/ you that she looks different than when she first debuted. my friend joined a pageant w/ her in NY and she was shockingly beautiful. i remember looking at her pic and i thought to myself that she would be the champion no doubt. then she joined tvb and to no surprise, she got popular w/in a matter of a few years. she was shockingly beautiful back then in my opinion. then i think she just started looking not as pretty when she hit 28. by all means, she's still pretty but above average kind of pretty. and compared to gemma chen whose the same age, gemma possesses that shockingly beautiful and graceful aura.
@jd33 same here. I don't drink and have never drank a pint in my life. Will get sick probably after 2 shots of vodka. However, I know this and would never attend a business deal meal with a Chinese businessman because there will be no way I'll be able to get away with the deal done without drinking...
I really admire the confidence of Anita for someone that was in her early 20s. Even now decades later this is unmatched by any young celebrity. I'm surprised women here aren't admiring Anita's positive characteristics. She is confident, brave and opinionated. She has made her mistakes but has had incredible achievements in the movie industry at a young age.
@usjag82 ehhh...she might be able to converse colloquially, as in people have no trouble trying to understand her point. but her grammar and speech still might not be fluent, if you catch my drift. i know a few Asians who came to the U.S. when they were 13-16 and never lost their accents and have terrible grammar, but they're still able to occupy high positions at work & in life. i just know when she used to speak english in tvb dramas, there was always something off about it.
Poor Sisley. Every guy she stands next to she is said to be the third party or whatever. She should exercise more discretion.
I read a crucial element was changed? Still not interested.
@tmbern Standing next to super smooth Nicole I'd rather her looking her age. And 45 isn't old.
I am excited for her. Nicole kidman is my favourite actress, whatever one might think of her botox situation. Seems like Fala got a sizable role. Don't know the story but my guess is she may play the mistress? HBO means some heavy duty scenes if you know what I mean. Maybe a breakthrough for Fala. Depending on her character;s origin, perhaps her character need not speak in America or any western accent.
@coralie wow, for someone graduated from Juiliard and able to join pageant in USA, shouldn't be too bad.
@tmbern as long as she aged graciously and intelligently, I doubt viewers will mind.
Just like most artistes who leave TVB for a greener pasture and she did it. So shld happy for her.
Huang Xiaoming clearly loves and need his good food. My hubby works very hard and he too loves and needs his good food.
Very boring to read about anita yuen. Such a control freak!
She aged. women once hit mid 30s to 45 look wrinkly
This does not prove anything, but you can sure say that she is a gossip-magnet!
@terrycrews19 I think they're also referring to her Chinese stage name 鄧紫棋 which is also trademarked. Her real Chinese name is 鄧詩穎.
@hanjin Try not to add things without basis. Lau Dan is a decent famous actor since acting in his earlier days The Bund which has lots of viewership. He is humble and thrifty and doesn't spend lavishly and don't need YM's money. Lau Dan loves his grand-daughter. So does Hawick. They both have very good relationship.
Hmm...I'm reluctant to bear too much hopes for the series. Fala's great, but I think I recall her English being mediocre for the most part. I hope there's no language barrier for her here.
Good on her! :) Going after what she wants.
Wow what sport was she representing? Reading this reminded me of how I also counted calories and exercised compulsively when I was back at a girls' school. Not sure if it was feelings of inadequacy which drove me to focus obsessively on body issues. It's v easy to get sucked to repetitive cycles of diet, exercise, diet, exercise esp. during certain chapters of your life. And glad she has stopped the unhealthy behaviours and became a better version of herself now...
she's lucky if she lost weight with the 150 calorie diet plan. some people do crash diets like that they even gain or stay the same shape.
@jd33 it depends on the host's opinion on this. it's like when people accept food from other asian mothers, but leave it mostly untouched or spit out the food. if they insist on them eating, then can't blame them for how they treat the food. but that's why this custom has to stop (the force tradition.) it's important for michelle to bring up this topic to highlight how dangerous and disrespectful it is for this obligation to exist. one of my gfs is Asian and gets severe Asian glow when she drinks. unfortunately her hubby's Italian and his Italian family loves wine. and even though she's politely declined many times, they still insist on her drinking. now she accepts the cup, but lets her husband drink for her. i mean, these are her in-laws so it's not like she can be rude to them. but in michelle's case, that dude is a nobody. she doesn't have to give a crap about him. and putting him on blast helps him and others to see how his behavior is abominable. maybe if enough women start protesting this behavior, the coercion will stop.
seeing so many GOT rip offs in chinese drama and production. i think one show copied the opening by showing map in the opening and now charmine's neck wrap in pic above.
@coralie thank you for that advice. But wouldn't that be worst if you take the glass but not drink it? The smell of alcohol makes me sick so if I accepted the glass I would've thought they'll expect me to drink it.
@jimmyszeto Better safe than sorry motive or no motive. Not everyone is a fan of alcohol. Why couldn't he just offer her tea then, that'll save them both face.
@lianna thank you for your reply. But I'm someone who don't drink, the smell of alcohol makes me sick. So if I was offered a drink I would refuse it, and if someone insist I drink with me constantly saying "no thank you" I would be annoyed if they continue to pester me. Food is a different story, even tho you're not hungry at the time you'll still nibble to be polite, I'll be happy to accept food even if I've eaten because I love food. But alcohol will be no. So I can understand Michelle refusing the drink.
Haha this inspires me to adopt a more consistent exercise routine and stick with it for 21 days.
I haven’t seen this drama yet, but the overall premise ick me. She kept commit suicide to avoid her husband, who is a pretty bad person. Not once but twice???? And through a few stills, her eyes are exceptionally red, like sickening zombie like red, maybe because her face is so white, but it looks kinda scary
@hanjin im with the other, Lau Dan does not need YM or her money, or her fame. He’s a respectable human being, don’t make your idol’s fandom look bad for saying stuffs like that.
@terrycrews19 haha yes, it's a silly name anyway...
@jimmyszeto clearly someone at this media outlet has it in for Sisley. She can never catch a break.
@jimmyszeto yup he does, his daughter is just about a year old
@gkoh best actress with the meg? Her acting in there was passable at best. Blockbusters doesn’t mean much when she’s only a support cast in a heavy ensemble cast with all the A lister.
Love this drama! Sooo good. I think the humour portrayed very well. It’s serious, but funny. Not the silly humour kind of drama. I think the lines are: “Lu Zhao Yao has me to protect (her)”. “She is my only weakness, and the only source for my strength”. “If you attack, i’ll be your sword, if you retreat, I’ll be your shield”. “To me, she’s the only one in the world” (I think in the article, it said “in my heart, she’s the one and only, which is nice in context, it’s pale in comparison to the previous quotes lol). Not to mention the sweet dialogues between the two leads, when Zhao Yao asked him why he helped her knowing she’s deceiving him, and he replied: my heart can’t help it. Ignoring the bad editing, and the drama feels choppy because of that, it’s overall a very nice and refreshing story, where both ML and Fl are strong without the need to make one look weak (in term of actions and rationales). Plus all the kissing scenes are hot! Totally recommend it :)
@cutie777 If you ask most men, it isn’t even a contest. Michelle easier prettier. Still not even close to Irene Wan though. Strange that my favourite celebrities are Deric Wan and Irene Wan...
@jimmyszeto I never find her as pretty but I think Ella Koon are much prettier.
@msxie0714 well better than she’s married a sugar daddy right?
Not checked but I think the guy who gave the lift has a wife and child as well...
@jimmyszeto that’s the HK media for you, seems like being an artiste means that it is impossible to have friends of the opposite sex without getting rumoured
@hanjin Lau Dan is a decent caring old man who has dedicated his life to family and television. He does not need to milk money off his daughter in law to improve his quality in life at his aged 75 so please don’t just open a new Jaynestar account to TROLL.Moron...
@potatochip Repect comes mutually and it’s not one way traffic. She felt no respect but the men may have also felt no respect from her refusing to drink. I will walk off but like I said she may have been there is no evidence that she was in a vulnerable position. I certainly wouldn’t post it all over social media.
All in all ,YM is the business minded here and owned much of the assets before she even married HL (who's parents just tagged along for moneys sake). Its very obvious why HL father ,Lau Dan kept on holding on to his granddaughter as the gold chip against YM. The division of the asset is not the question here, it's how much HL & family will bleed out from YM.
I don't think anyone outside of Hong Kong calls her G.E.M. anymore. I think she has outgrown her stage name, unlike angelababy.
@jimmyszeto I am not being contradictory. Sure, she may know they like to drink, but she also expected them to respect her "no". She expected them to be honorable. She did not feel they respected her, so she left. You still haven't answered about how you would feel if you were placed in a vulnerable position.
@potatochip We are both guessing at how much a threat or how less a threat it was at that dinner party. One thing is for sure, there has to be drinks from both parties in a chinese business deal.
@potatochip You are totally contradictory. If business deal in China then definitely involves drinking. Every man and his dog knows this...
@jimmyszeto I am not discriminating gay guys. I think I have posted abundantly about LGBTQ rights. I am trying to provide an analogy so that you, as a male, can sense a similar situation that females are put in all the time. You, as a male, do not have to worry about being raped when you wake alone at night or when you are outnumbered by a group of powerful men. In order for men to see how their actions can be negatively viewed by women, we have to turn it on its head. Do not say or do anything that you wouldn't want a gay guy to say or do to you. About her sitting there for an hour, you are already placing blame on her actions. She was trying to negotiate a business deal, and after trying for an hour and realizing that this is not about business but about trying to make her drink, she walked away.
I agree with those that say it is outdated to want a son to carry on the family name. Life does not go as planned. What if the son grows up and does not want kids? What if the son has a medical condition that causes mental deficits? What if he is infertile? That is a lot of pressure on one child. It also signals to the daughters that they are not worth as much as the son. Son would be raised coddled and entitled. I just saw an interesting news article where a 21 year old Chinese American male died in an unexpected skiing accident. He was the only child, very high achieving, and understandably, the parents are devastated. They requested for the courts to allow them to harvest his sperm to bank for later procreation. I don't know how I would grieve if I were in their situation, but this seems so extreme.
@potatochip She stayed for an hour while allegedly getting forced to drink. Also she did not complain about a kidnapping. It’s obvious that she could have walked off whenever she wished.
@potatochip It’s totally different. Why are you discriminating gay guys as persisting alcohol drinkers? They have no history of insisting others on drinking...
@jimmyszeto Culture should not trump one's instincts about personal safety. When she got to the meeting and felt threatened by the way they acted, she is right to protect herself. Imagine this. You have a meeting with a group of gay guys. They pressure you to drink or do things that you may not be comfortable with even though you said no. Would you just go along with it?
Is it really worth taking her stage name? I mean, their company can't really use it and give it to someone else since everyone knows her as G.E.M. How would it benefit Hummingbird? ..wait, why did they file trademark rights in the first place? Besides, it's best to always leave or move on peacefully, otherwise, it's just going to ruin your (Hummingbird) reputation.
Pointless article. Sisley got a lift off a friend/colleague after a meal...
@potatochip What if she knew prior to a meal with several businessmen, she knew this was going to happen? Everyone with any minor wisdom knows Chinese businessmen won’t accept anyone totally refusing drink whether men or women. Of course culture matters because if she knew this was going to happen then she was just setting them up...
@gracechat25 Actually, the company mentioned in the comment you talk about is Jaywalk media (a mainland company estimated around CNY 4 billions in value at the moment). Yang Mi is one of the founders and shareholders - Hawick is not a shareholder of Jaywalk (from what I know of Jaywalk) The company in this article - Leader fame limited - is a Hong Kong based company which was established before their marriage. Yang Mi has 40%, Hawick has 39% and Hawick's mother has 21% of it's ownership.
Congrats to them! But I have to be critical of the photography. For someone whose business is presenting eye-catching photos, these pictures are uninspired and unnatural. Hope they had better ones in Thailand.
When a lady says "no", it means "no". It doesn't matter the culture or custom. I can't drink because it would literally kill me. But even if that weren't the case, if something makes me uncomfortable, they should respect my wishes and not persist. The businessman may not have ill-intentions, but he crossed the line by ignoring her wishes and not respecting her voice. She is right to call him a "scumbag" for that, especially since I am sure he called her something for not obeying him. And let's say she gave in and drank. And then something bad happens. She would have been blamed for drinking. She can't win.
Has high standards on men ppppppffff that tells what kinda of a women she really is she only see's nothing but fancy life style I remember a freind telling me that he read or seen a video that she will flaunt herself alot more in front of wealthy mens whether they are handsome or not
@huppertspuppet my children speak fluent cantonese, mandarin, and english. for young kids, you can teach them up to 4 languages so in a way, there is no mother tongue for kids. it really depends on what you expose them to.
@coralie They were already talking in the video about buying policies and insurance for the baby already. Not good signs when parents are so worried about the baby’s future when the baby is so young that it is not born yet. When the kid hits 18, the parents will be in early 70s...
@janet72 The conclusion is that Ruco thinks he’s some kind of big shot. No one outside of TVB has even heard of him...
so they are business partners and own companies together. Rich. I remember there was a person in previous post who mentioned YM has a company and Hawick is a shareholder of the company and was badly thought to be having wrong info. Now this article clears the air.
@jimmyszeto Ignorant folks don't think about the consequences of their actions when they want something. They don't plan for the future or know what's at stake. Even assuming they can live to 120, how great would their quality of life be?
@jimmyszeto it's customary to drink with clients to socialize, but this doesn't mean she has to drink it. she can accept the glass, but not drink. forcing her to do it is rude, not to mention really unhealthy. i'm glad she brought this up, because no matter how you look at it, when men make women drink, there's always going to be some question of whether it's safe. it's a clear gender divide. and she was harassed for not drinking which made the situation worse.
@alexa777 I just want to chip in a little bit. I think one of the reasons why Yang Mi does not want to show her daughter to everyone is that she's afraid her daughter's photo will be photoshoped into something bad. I remember, a photo of Noemie (taken by Hongkong paparazzi) once was photoshoped into a dead's portrait (well Yang Mi was photoshoped too). It really made Yang Mi angry, after that I have never seen Yang Mi posted anything related to her daughter again. She only shared some fun stories about her daughter in her interview.
@coralie agree, partners in business, making money together. It's not nessesary to divide those investments as long as they can deal with it.
@passingby2 "In their marriage, Simon said the “three obediences” was to not let his wife cook, clean the floor, and wash the clothes. As for “the four virtues”, Simon has to wait for his wife while she’s doing makeup, willing to offer his credit card, endure anger and cheer her up when she’s frustrated.' qiqi is so lucky to find a husband like Simon. no need to cook, mop, wash clothes. gets to spend hubby's credit card and cheer up wife when she is unhappy.
@msxie0714 in the lingerie business...perfect guy for her. she gets to wear all the sexy lingerie but in the long run, whether she can keep her man is another story especially if he is loaded.
@jimmyszeto even royalty are not allowed to reveal the gender of their baby until after they have given birth. the poor guests can't be attending the party empty handed but after the baby is born, they have to attend 100 day old party again.
I enjoy 2D animations more...maybe due to nostalgia though. For some reason, I think they're easier on the eye?
Well they can be partners in work, if not partners in life. As long as both parties are mature about this situation, then it's no issue.
@huppertspuppet You are on the wrong site. Go on Weibo if you want to ask Yangmi or Hawick these questions....
Will Noemi learn Cantonese as her 'mother tongue’ (or maybe more appropriately first language) or Mandarin?
@msxie0714 I’ve seen more uglier men marry sexy celebrities. Since Jessie isn’t young, she had done well to secure her future....
@jd33 If there is a motive everytime a chinese businessman persists in you having a drink then all the chinese businessmen in China would be arrested for suspected drugging/potential rape. Everyone knows that it is disrespectful in China if you refuse to drink a sip after being requested. Then to randomly accuse the man of having a sexual motive with zero evidence is just ridiculous....
he ain't handsome but he's loaded.
This man must be rich to be able to meet her high standard.
@littlefish Hm, some friend in social media mentioned it somewhere that the hospital was another one instead. But I didn't read into it closely. Now I cannot find who and where that post was. Should've double checked my sources before I said that, I don't know what truth and false about them are anymore anyway at this point. Just way too many news article now. I think quality time with kids is not only a problem with celebrities but any rich people. Spending at least a few days per month together, sounds like a job rather than a natural thing that should just happen. The parents still at least committed time and efforts that way, but it still doesn't always mean all kids will happy with that type of routine though. More time is never enough time.
I still missed the old water color animations like Nezha Riots the Seas
Only thing I notice about this drama, her make up is soooooo white. They need to tone that down.
@littlefish Do you mean when she dated Hans Zhang? Not sure if it was scandalous, but that's the only c-actor I know she dated (I don't really follow her news). But yes @minhee, she's quite unliked, and not popular enough. I remember hearing a lot of hate when her drama with Lu Han was being broadcasted and her telling her fellow actors of the pressure she was getting from Netzens when she was on Up Idol. I just took a look at Weibo and if you count followers of the younger actresses on the list NaZha's is quite low: Yang Zi 44 Mill Na Zha 16 Mill Liu Shi Shi 31 Mill Dilraba 626 Mill Liu Yi Fei 64 Mill Shen Yue 10 Mill
What a jerk!!! I hope no one hires him for that job for a long time.
@jd33 it's a difference of culture. You know how you go to an Asian parent's house and they always offer you food or drinks? It's the same thing here. Drinking is part of a culture in China. People drink alcohol like its water in China. They drink during lunch, dinner, after dinner, karoke, midnight, etc. It's kind of rude to not drink alcohol when its offered just like its rude to not accept food/drinks from an Asian parent when you are visiting.
Li bin bin has 7 movies (3 of them blockbusters) in Hollywood- she just won best actress in 2018 with the Meg
@jimmyszeto Firstly, Koni puts up a brave front in public; she still goes to work as usual, and takes care of her son. Her action of putting up a brave front and placing her attention on work and her son instead of dwelling on her divorce make me feel that she is a strong and resilient person. And it is not easy to be a single mum. Koni decided to go through divorce and to become a single mum do imply to me that she is a strong person. Secondly, I really like her character in CHL that I have a good impression on her. Maybe this is why I side her. I don't mind if you say I am biased towards her. Hence my view is pretty subjective. It based on my own judgement. I don't mind if you disagree with me. After all, there isn't really a specific standard in judging things, is it?
Nice to see Chinese animation getting better. Hope to see rebirth of Chinese golden age animation.
I think she's right not to accept that drink. If he had no other motives then he wouldn't try and enforce the drink. Don't want her to be another case like 'Y... M.'.
@stars1 In the mainland, getting pestered to drink by businessmen is very normal behaviour. It’s disrespectful not to drink a sip...
Just another incident to try to tedeem her fans’ support....
@davy correct me if I’m wrong, my impression (so far i hasnt seen an article said she gave birth somewhere else) is that she did indeed give birth at The same hospital as Xie Na. It’s not ZLY and FSF tried to mislead the press, rather the press sniff them out. The press seems to publish the news because they were convinced that the birth was very close! Because remember ZLY and FSF denied the birth will be in early March. With ZLY, it will remain to be seen. One thing is we don’t know much about Li Bing Bing’s company. That company has no other artist but Li Bing Bing herself. And Li Bing Bing barely has any work? She did 1 Hollywood movie and that’s it? So either ZLY gonna be the same as before, or extremely casual like LBB, remain to be seen. Another factor is FSF’s household is quite a rich family, the in-laws might have a say on how the baby is raised. Some in-laws believes it’s best that they raise the child and not the parents (could be the same for YM’s case, but I just didn’t think such thinking is the norm with HK, I know it is with mainland Chinese). Also whether or not she’s back at work isn’t the issue, the issue is her quality time with the child. Like I mentioned before I thought ABB was a bad mother, barely any news of her and her son, and she works a lot. But a few pictures appear, and she either took vacations with him, went to kid concert with him, he lovingly run to his mother on set shows otherwise. Anyway, we will see how ZLY deal with motherhood I guess xD glad Jayne hasn’t done the article how people accuse ZLY for being a bad mother because she has nail polish on xD (love how zoom in to look for faults antifans can be xD)
@m0m0 That’s harsh. I wouldn’t wish death upon anyone....
fathers like that is probably better dead than alive.
@scent Strong and resilient attitude? Where did you get that from?
Always like her role in Come Home Love. Off camera, her strong and resilient attitude have my respect. Good that she places all her attention on her child instead. Way to go, Koni!
@gkoh Filming requires traveling, doesn't matter where the in laws will live. Hours will be crazy too, you might even be in the same city together but doesn't mean you would get to spend time together at all.
@coralie It’s a miracle and they are a likeable, hard working, HK working class couple but it will be a lot of work for them once the baby arrives....
@coralie Michelle’s language is vulgar at best. Think the money she earned after leaving TVB really went to her head.People who feels always needing to post to show off are really insecure people...
@coralie He says he hopes they live till 120. I think they need to too...
She’s a scumbag herself, it’s karma.
@jimmyszeto i haven't heard of brian for so long now. it's nice to know he's doing well. but yeah, as long as the woman's not completely done with menopause and everything is still working...it's possible. i just feel bad for the baby; when the baby's 30, his/her parents will be in their 80s and probably need constant care around the clock. i know they want kids really bad, but it's still pretty selfish. i also hope the baby's health is okay...egg quality declines with age and there's higher likelihood of congenital disorders.
@coralie Wow. Actor Brian Wong Chak Fung, Wife pregnant at 52... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XYInk1UxgJQ&t=120s
@coralie oh yea, he will. these are pretty rude comments regardless.
@jimmyszeto she has no lasting impression in HK ebiz. she will certainly go in the way Linda did except with less fame.
@jimmyszeto I don't think this incident is rude of her; she's just sticking up for herself. But for the other cases, she's been really obnoxious about them. I think the fame has gotten to her head and she thinks she's a bigshot now.
Dang girl, nice save. But i hope that guy gets the brunt of netizens' and producer's wrath and then get terminated.
@davy read she join li bin bin’s new co so most probably she will continue working after resting awhile. Most women have 3-4 months maternity leave, then with help from her mum and mum-in-law should be able to work. Maybe take less project cos she is rich enough? YM is different cos her in law is in hk so harder to see her kid. Not sure whether YM’s parents are willing to help cos maids are not reliable
@elizabeth Totally agree!! Their cover is so cute!! I love their chemistry!! can't wait to see their sweet scenes haha so glad they didn't cast popular actor and actress to play the main roles.
@m0m0 She gets her 5 seconds of gossip. She is just as insignificant as Koni. Koni is probably enjoying her limelight too by announcing the divorce. Enjoy it while it lasts...
so glad they didn't cast a popular actress to play the lead role. Both peng xiaoran and cheng xingxu are doing great!
Jeannie has the looks of the next celebrity to capture a rich heir. She can certainly find better than Carlos...
@littlefish This is the Entertainment circle. It is not the typical office job. There are sexy girls inside and outside the circle who will be all over them. It’s good for Anita to show a bit of authority to those girls by confronting them and intimidate them a bit because they will know shame...
I used to like Michelle the most out of all TVB actresses and thought she was the prettiest but her behaviour recently has been rude and thuggish at best...
Looks like she gained quite some pounds, totally unrecognizable. I still wonder about the one news saying she gave birth at the same hospital as Xie Na. It made no sense, why would the media want to publish about her giving birth only a few days ahead of the real date? If the media wants to create a false alert, why not do like a month early? But just a few days...? By any chance, could this couple have purposely try to mislead fans in case of getting stalked? I don't know about @gkoh but she just gave birth, her child needs attention. From what I've seen, most people say YM is a very bad mother for not taking care, spending time with her child. So I hope it's not favoritism with ZLY fans pushing her to work after having a child. It takes months to film and be away from home. How could any mother leave their young child for such a long period and only facetime or drop by a few minutes to visit?
Glad she checked out so soon and looks healthy. Hope she has good rest and comes back with another drama soon
sob.......we poor peasants have to cook, clean the floor and wash the clothes.
Glad they both make it even though they came from poor and disadvantaged background
@m0m0 I think surrogate present many problems, in some countries, it’s even illegal :/ but yea, easy to just use IVF, but maybe she didn’t want to be called infertile? Because in a lot of infertile case, they were able to have baby due to IVF? Anyway, my point before was maybe she did do IVF, but it can still fail and drag the timeline :) like I mentioned before, I had a friend who tried IVF for 2 yrs before she could manage to have a boy, and now she’s waiting for a second one :)
@jimmyszeto lol, was a joke. Just that with her current attitude, can’t help but feeling could be the other way xD I know Chilam is a pretty good guy. But my sentiment is still the same, after 27yrs, you don’t have to be that domineer over your husband. He knew she was too good for him at the beginning, and that’s why he doesn’t turn his back on her now, or later. But she needs to loosen up a bit. These sort of talks about her she’s still controlling Chilam is just make her look bad
@jimmyszeto Well, again, the well-being of the wife, family, what the son wants, all things don't matter. The parents would tell the son to divorce or try to conceived with another woman. It is just the way some think.... I know because I know people who went through this and my in-laws r the same
@littlefish I know that I've is is tumoutous process and full of ups and downs. Funny thing is one couple I know have been considering it. They have no children but the dudes parent want him to have a boy. The dude said his office mate conceived a boy after one or two daughters. According to the dude, his co-worker said it was so simple and bang you get a boy. Even his wife was like, they are going to try it because they want both genders. My husband and I find it very amusing because this couple obviously have no idea of the emotional and physical toll it can take on the woman. I think even if a couple is doing it just for gender selection, that couple have to be pretty determined to stick to the end because there are crazy number of shots. Very painful too. I read that surrogacy has become much more expensive in the us because the Chinese are flocking to California to try for a boy. It's not that much money if you are rich and they tell you the gender here.
also the fact that anita is not aging well. she started showing signs of aging quite young.
i guess kelly got what she wanted, people are talking about her now....
@jimmyszeto you never know.... it's a weird world....
i guess in a way good move so that she gets help but maybe not so great if she wants to find love....
@anon You've got a point but hey, that's the direction hip hop is headed to in the future, with the emergence of the 'Lil' rappers. I don't dispute the fact that most of Rocky and Ye's stuff are shit but they took a so called futuristic approach to hip hop and it worked, and so did EDC, but evidently it didn't work in China. Thing is, so many of these people who don't knwo jack shit about hip hop are jumping on the bandwagon talking about flow, delivery etc after watching the Rap of China and it kinda pisses people who know their shit. EDC was better off as an actor, but he had some pretty decent tracks IMO, and Kris.. lol i don't actually consider him a rapper. Pit him against those so called idol rappers in China and I'm sure he'll get blown into pieces. Thing is Kris couldn't really do anything when he came back from Korea cause hes not very talented, but because of his fame he was put in a position where he is supposed to be the leader of this so called frontline to promote hip hop in China. My opinion? Hip hop in China has gone to shit after Season 1 of the rap of china. As for the judges, i think only MC Hotdog and Wilber Pan are qualified enough to call themselves rappers. edit: Im not a fan of Kris but I won't deny that his album is decent, though i dont consider it a rap album whatsoever.
@jimmyszeto But that's the whole point isnt it? He influenced hip hop in the China/HK area. He never claimed credit whatsoever for doing hip hop in the States.
@ijeyye "Hip hop in China is not real hip hop anymore." What is real hip hop? You can't expect people in China to know what real hip hop is when it barely exists in America today. ASAP Rocky and Kayne West, the two examples you made, in my opinion, are garbage and ain't real rappers either. Hip hop music barely has any TOP tracks on the radio these days. The ones that do become top hits aren't even real rappers themselves. The only time you'll see any resemblance of real rap is from the underground scene. Rap is dead. At least, from a commercial sense, it is dead. Mumble rapping ain't rap. Sorry, it's not! Most of the top commercial "rappers" in America today aren't rappers. They may have alot of commercial success, but that doesn't make them a rapper. Eminem is probably the only artist that I consider as a rapper that can consistently produce top hits on the radio. The rests are pretenders. Just do a search on Youtube using keywords like "Hip hop is dead", and you'll get hundreds of videos of people talking about it's death including many videos from current hip hop artists themselves. I think EDC and Kris are both garbage as well. Their flow sucks and are just pretenders.
Love this couple.
never liked her idk why she make it sound like she is the victim causing drama for herself just for the spotlight puuuuuleeease i think the papparazzi should just leave koni and her family alone its there privacy off camera there just regular normal ppl just like everyone else
She couldn't have give birth in May 2019 and now the daughter is 9. Sorry, but, Jayne, I have noticed a lot of these errors with Dates, Spelling of Name etc...
@elizabeth I look forward to Peng Xiaoran and Chen Xingxu in their future works. They are both lovable on screen and off screen. Those who like them please go and check out their cover of the themesong as well as their interviews. I am glad that FBB was not cast as originally suspected a few years back. I am especially impressed with these young actors taking the time to learn how to ride convincing and not using doubles in the riding scenes (except for when CXX fell off his horse when he was blindfolded). The action scenes are pretty well done and not slow-motion. Wei Qianxiang is very convincing as Gu Jian and he can really act with his eyes. He is not exactly new but he is quite expressive with his eyes. This series has new faces supported but not overshadowed by veterans like Siqin Gaowa, Gallen Lo, Wang Zhifei and Zhang Dinghan (who I just found out is married to Wang Zhifei who plays her uncle in the series). Kristy Yeung makes a surprising cameo in the series. There will always be haters and not everyone will like this as it has its own flaws, but give it a go.
I am loving GMP at the moment. It is not the perfect drama but it is a good pace and the chemistry of the two main leads make up for it. I am a fan of the book and worried about it being dragged out to 52 eps with awkward comedic filler bits and repetitive flashbacks but currently, up to ep 36, I am so far pretty happy with it. This adaptation has changed the male character a bit but has managed to flesh out his development more. In the book, Li Chengyin was an enigma as the story was told from Xiao Feng's POV and you never really realised how he felt as he was so manipulative and cold. Being adapted to a series, I feel that showing how LCY gradually changed is more satisfying to watch. Some of LCY's schemes have been given to other characters to carry out and so he is not as hateable as in the book. I do miss the suspense from the novel where the story started in the middle after Xiao Feng had married for a while and then the story is told via flashbacks and weaved into the present. It was more shocking as from the book, it did not give away that Gu Xiaowu and Li Cheng Yin looked the same. But in the series, it is a dead giveaway so I can understand why the screenwriters decided to film in chronological order because you cannot get the same shock as from the novel because everything is presented visually. I think the production has done the right thing with this adaptation - making changes to the plot yet being able to keep the essence and spirit of the novel. For years, the song "Ai Shang" has been unofficially declared as the themesong of the novel by fans and the two are always linked together in Dong Gong fandom. I am very happy with the sincerity of the production by purchasing the copyright of the song for the subtheme. And I love how they managed to create the fab main themesong where the lyrics and melody suit the story very much. They have put a lot of thought into the OST which I think can make or break a good series.
@jimmyszeto women in their 30s are still pretty fertile, until they get to age 35, then it might get more difficult. but even then, as long as they're fertility aware and there are no existing biological problems, i.e., low sperm count, blocked ducts/ovaries/uterus, i think the chances of pregnancy are still pretty high.
@hohliu It's fine. Unless his daughter dates a 70 year old in the future, there's no way his future son in law can be the same age as Aaron...
@coralie True. It worked out for you but could be tough if the mother realises it might take a length of time to become pregnant...
I wonder how will he feel when his daughter dates a man like him?
@jimmyszeto my husband said he wanted kids at age 25, for the same reasons you stated, so that he won't be too old before they're grown. now we're in our 30s and he says while he would've still wanted to have children in his mid-20s, he wouldn't have gotten as far in his career now if he didn't have that space and time to grow in his 20s. so it's hard to say. if we had kids in our 20s, he probably wouldn't be where he is today.
@jimmyszeto agreed. there was a lot of trash talk back when anita was with chilam and that was because chilam's status wasn't as high as anita's. people demeaned their relationship, gave chilam a soft rice king reputation. it wasn't until chilam hit it big that people stopped. but anita never stopped supporting him. i mean anita is getting older nowadays and working less. whereas chilam is working more and still very popular. it's natural to feel a bit of a threat from other parties. and when you're in the ebiz, it's very easy for both parties to fall for other people. all it takes is one phone call or one lingering chat. i can understand why anita hints at her safety measures. and honestly chilam doesn't seem to be the type that has self-discipline...as you can tell from her friends' remarks about his flirtatious behavior. not everyone can be like dicky cheung, his gang of buddies, wong cho lam, etc and have strict self-discipline about how they interact with fellow costars. and to be honest, if my husband shows complete trust in me and never gets jealous or checks up on me, that much freedom would make me question if he loves me at all. some jealousy & territorial feelings are healthy, in fact. and considering anita used to be a 3rd party in someone's marriage, she knows how easy it is to lose a man even in a secure relationship. so for all those reasons above, i can't say i blame her.
@coralie If I don't have the financial stability at 20, there's no guarantee I will have stability at 30 either. I don't think it is worth risking wasting 10 years ...
@jimmyszeto okay, but in comparison, i think gender balancing is a much more acceptable reason for wanting a son rather than to carry on the surname, age-aside.
@jimmyszeto There is never a good time, but there is definitely a more 'prepared' time, like when parents are more financially stable. The problem there is that nowadays most people aren't financially stable until they're in their 30s or later, which is the problem and the reason you see so many more older couples visiting fertility centers. But to push it to the ages of the heavenly kings/kevin is ridiculous.
@ijeyye Edison only influenced hip hop because hip hop in Hong Kong and China was either crap or non existent. See how he would do if he was in the US...
@littlefish Anita is far too good for Chilam back in the day. She may have been arrongant but she was one of the most confident young stars. Just because the dynamics have changed, we can’t suddenly hope for Chilam to dump her. Chilam’s worry is a genuine one and it is something we all worry about with our respective partners.. It’s ridiculous if you believe there’s even a slight tone in him hoping for her to pass away. It’s totally opposite. He’s worried that he will pass away and no one will look after her.
Proves that we need money to fulfil our dreams...
@m0m0 EDC's relevance today is extremely underrated. Hip hop in the mainstream Chinese market would not be what it is today if it were not for him. The reason why he disses so many people, particularly the judges on the Rap of China program is because hip hop in China is not real hip hop anymore. The Chinese government has been cracking down on Chinese hip hop, they've been removing chinese hip hop songs from chinese music streaming platforms and banned the sales of Chinese hip hop albums, and therefore the program was on the verge of being banned from broadcast unless they agreed to change their themes and replace it with themes such as brotherhood, love etc. If you’ve watched both seasons of Rap of China, you’d understand where I’m coming from. FYI he isn’t the only one dissing Kris, and other underground rappers are coming at Kris harder than EDC. You can’t really blame him for getting pissed at people. He singlehandedly brought hip hop and street culture to China, only to see it being exploited by Record labels and companies that know nuts about hip hop but use so called ‘hiphop’ in their adverts anyway. People have the misconception of hip hop cause they think the only thing about it is talking really fast and they call it rapping. Well, sadly, its not. I’m sure if you put yourself in his shoes, you’d feel the same. As for his skills, check out his albums and give it a good listen because he has some really good songs. His style is a little futuristic and it might be foreign to listeners in the East, but hey, everyone has their own taste in music. His style and his willingness to break boundaries in music resembles ASAP Rocky and Kanye West. If you’ve listened to their albums Im sure you’d understand. As for Kris, well.. I think that he still has a lot to work on, but that doesn’t mean its a bad thing, it means that he still has room for improvement, and his debut album is pretty good, giving it a solid 7/10. EDC on the other hand.. needs to learn how to control his temper lmao. All in all, Kris is relevant to today’s audience, and EDC is responsible for paving the way. Glad to see that they’re both talking it out and the thing isn’t escalating. Sorry for the long post and Have a nice day! :)
Uh, while I tried to be as open minded as I can about Anita, but more and more article about her just make me dislike her more and more, at least how she deal with Chilam. I understand that a sense of security should be given by the man in order for you to trust him, however, trust is two way streets as well, you have to trust him as well. No matter what he does to give her a sense of security, if she doesn’t trust him or lack in self confident, not much he can do to lessen that. Every interview, she made it sound like Chilam is a playboy. Being friendly with co-star doesn’t mean he’s flirtatious. Just because there are women out there being delusional, does not mean it’s Chilam’s fault >_>? I lol at chilam’s “our union is fortunate and unfortunate”. The unfortunate part sounds like he can’t wait for her to pass away >_> if a man has been with you for over 27 years and zero affair, I think you can let your sense of insecurity goes. After 10 years, and you can’t trust your partner, why do you stay with him? I just felt like Chilam is too good for her, try very hard to not be so hard on Anita, but the more she keeps talking, the less respect I have for that girl
@gkoh Well they've been together for almost 3 decades so obviously their relationship works. Not everyone is so shallow and only considers looks or how rich the other person is. Shame some people only cares about looks without checking the mirror first.
He is too handsome and looks way younger- that’s why she is insecure. Furthermore he is very friendly with female co-stars, that’s the problem with marrying actors- they have to do love scenes
Stress of marrying a rich business man, must produce son to carry on family name
@m0m0 so say she gave birth to her daughter, first 2 years, they possibly too exhausted to try. Then the next 6 years, try naturally without success, then another year to try out fertility. Also we don’t know how long they have been trying different techniques of increase fertility. I have a friend who has to go through IVF, and she reckons no one would understand unless they have to go through it by themselves. Because as much you just harvest the eggs, then the lab does the work, but it could still fail. She could be giving out 27 eggs, but the success could be just 1, sometimes none. I also have another friend who tried IVF, took her two years to actually get it. It’s a lot of emotions, up and down, and before the ivf, you need to pump your body full of hormones. And during that time, you tend to feel pretty bad, so if your ivf fail, then you have to go through it again, it possibly need sometimes in between to get yourself mentally ready. Not sure about HK, but in Australia, they can’t reveal the sex of the baby, to avoid parents only choosing male embryo. They gave you an analysis of which embryo is most healthy, and whether there is genetic defect.
@coralie There is never a good time to have a child. For me the only thing that matter is having it 'early'. Being young parents does mentally generate a positive effect on the children. They trust and respect your opinions a lot more. Also, I really think about the energy left to look after them when they are in their teenage years. I will never have kids at ages Aaron, Andy and Kevin.Even if I was guaranteed to live till 100 years old..
@coralie Did the elderly or the parents think that when the mother becomes 60 odd, the boy will still be 20? I doubt they are striving for gender balance if she's still trying at age 40+. The father is likely even older than the mother. Also its not certain that it will be a boy. Will they try again if the next one is also a girl? Would the grandparents even bother attending the 1 month party if the next one is a girl?
@jimmyszeto wow, that's a lot of stress on a first-time father. i can't say i'd be that brave to have kids when i'm strained financially, but you make a good point. wealth does not determine whether someone can raise kids. but that's great you're thinking on their behalf and not having more kids so you can spend more time with them.
I think my issue with this article is the idea of needing a boy to succeed the family name. That's such an outdated notion. If they said they wanted to gender balance, at least that's a little more understandable.
@m0m0 I would choose option 1 especially if my wife was 41. Adult health and the years ahead of developing the child is very important. Won't just gamble on a son for the sake of keeping the bloodline when we won't even be here....
@coralie Good question! Finance not a problem because I was almost broke and barely working when the first child arrived. Plus in England there is enough Govt help than any lower class citizens can have many children anyway. Energy is not a problem too because it is only real stressful in the few years. The main reason able to spread enough time equally for the children to feel loved and not left out. Coming from family of 4 children, I feel 3 will be too much....
Wow will definitely watch this !!
@m0m0 well, late thirties for a year isn't exactly a young age to keep trying.
@jimmyszeto it's not really your choice really b/c some chinese parents tend to think that they own you. it's either you don't talk to your parents for the rest of your life or do what they tell you b/c you having a son is their only goal in life.
@jimmyszeto do you want to stop due to financial obligations? or you just don't think you have the energy to deal with so many children?
@passingby2 @coralie To learn what a 'baby shower' is from a few years studying in a western country would be a huge achievement. It would involve really hands on socialising and adapting to Western culture. From what I've witnessed, the majority of Chinese/Hong Kong just write off their few years abroad by hanging around amongst their own Chinese groups. The ones you have met with weird accents are at the top end.You will be lucky if some go back after 4 years having learnt 100 new words of English nevermind converted to Westernism.....
She thinks too highly of herself. Why would Koni and her ex hubby use Kelly to create news for themselves? Other than her scandals with married rich old men is she even newsworthy? And talk about nursing a grudge, she still can't let go after 6 years. What a petty beech.
@coralie hmmm yes, a few years of overseas education does not make a person westernized. I've come across people who spend a few months in UK or USA and come back sporting a weird British or American accent, haha, so phoney.
He looks like the guy that played Kate Tsui's dead bf in Guardian Angel.
@m0m0 Probably because they kept trying naturally but without success...
A bit old fashioned thinking if there are 3 daughters to raise but still looking to have a son. If my first 2 children were daughters, I would have still stopped...
