@jimmyszeto I think Wayne is great, but he is not perfect. Before Ruco was leading, they were in Forensic Heroes 3 together and it wasn't like Wayne blew him out of the water. Ruco was in a movie with Anthony Wong when he was much younger (Rape Trap). I didn't get to see it, and although I heard it was terrible, the few reviews I saw complimented how effective Ruco was. I think Ruco and Wayne can push each other. I do think he is more interesting when he is with better quality actors (Nina, Krystal, Louis Cheng, Joel, etc). Acting should be evolving, in order to improve, one must challenge oneself and learn from others.
@potatochip Putting Ruco in a series with Wayne would be a terrible idea. Wayne would make Ruco’s acting look very mediocre. It just wouldn’t be a good strategy to promote Ruco. Remember when TVB stuck Wayne in with Anthony Wong. We were all like ‘Wow, TVB’s best actor isnt even close to the level of this veteran movie actor’.....
Lol, already people is saying this drama plagiarised Ruyi (the one with Wallace Hou). How he will never ever change!
@taimanh024 Proves that mainland audiences like watching fake, pretentious, slow paced historical dramas. I guess they have plenty of time on their hands.
@jimmyszeto The colorful costumes, colorful palace, the fake background, slow-motion stuffs... It looks exactly like Mainland dramas style.
@taimanh024 Deep in the Realms of Conscience is a breakthrough in terms of fake colours. It’s as if a kid has threw a palette of paint over the tv screen.
As I am watching ep 20, it really is like a pararrell story with our ex PM's story as well. Most corrupted and yet still shows up as if nothing has happened, denied all involvement or rather someone else admitted they did it for him, he knew nothing or not full details, cunning wife doing dirty work and attempts to kill mistress (except in real story, the mistress was blown up), etc etc. It took us a general election to be rid of him and still he's there. For He Shen it takes a very determined emperor. I really dislike where this is heading. A person can't be so corrupt, taking money meant to help the people, bribing everyone, killing everyone, drowning a village for money and attempts to assassinate the king and still be noble and all. That is my singular criticism of ruco's performance. Everyone is s sure, so obvious where they stand but his he shen is not ambigous in nature but ambigous in interpretation when in entire series he did do what he was accused of doing, either he himself or in his name. I couldn't believe Dou Kau could ever forgive him. He wasn't some good official who did one bad deed. His hired gun tried to kill another official and ended up killing everyone. He is stained with blood and yet the series never really say so.And I dislike that. I perfectly understand why the king is paranoid. He has to be considering how many years he was bullied into submission. I hope He Shen dies. Oh he will but my guess is the king will be the biggest loser.
I couldn't stand Deep in the Realm of Conscience after the first episode, and when I come to Succession War without any expectation, it turns out to be great. Probably the best TVB drama in the recent years. Shaun Tam is overacting somehow, but I believe he'll improve in the next dramas. And, as someone pointed out above, the moment Qianlong confronted him about the poisoning, the moment of him shedding tears, his performance is awesome. I hope the following episodes would keep up with the quality. So sad to know its rating this low.
Some of those abs look like they were airbrushed in lol. And you know since its an underwear ad, they're most likely stuffing to make it look bigger ha ha. But good on them. I'm sure they have pretty good physiques, especially Donnie Yen since guy is over 50.
I was afraid to gush prematurely, but this drama is awesome! I will try to be vague to not spoil anything. I am up to Episode 19 and it has everything - tension, mystery, romance, filial love... Jia qing finally relaxes and it was sweet to see. The scene between Ruco and Matthew hit so many complex emotional notes. I finally feel for Matthew's character. The scene where they all gathered to list Heshen's crime was so, so unintentionally funny. The "WTF is happening here?!?" expressions on their faces were priceless. My only complaint is that scene should have been filmed in the Grand Hall and that the episode should have ended there. The series is so good so far. Keeping my fingers crossed that it continues this way.
@emiliachan I didn't know about the original casting info. Chris Lai would have been fine but I think Jonathan is doing pretty well. Tony Hung would have been TERRIBLE. Really, really terrible.
i really like succession war as a drama. the cast is really good for a tvb drama these days. one of the main things this drama caught my eye is also because of one ep = one day, i think this concept is new and pretty cool. as for the cast, ruco's acting is definitely amazing and brings out the character well, so i have nothing against him. shaun tam really does not catch my eye, his expression and voice is often the same but i'm gonna give him a chance since it's his first tvb drama. for the girls, selena and elaine are both good actresses and i think elaine is doing especially well in this drama. even natalie (which i didn't like after she got the award) exceeded my expectations. for jonathan and joel, their acting is acceptable. all the girls have good acting and look so pretty. and the little boys are so cute <3 p.s. if you didn't know, originally chris lai was meant to act jonathans role and tony hung for shaun tam. (does anyone think they would've been better or worse, just curious..) to be honest, this drama is produced extremely well and has a good cast and story line but the reason why it's ratings are falling is because of the world cup and the consecutive ancient dramas. the only thing i don't like about the drama is the white angel clan (idk what its called in eng), that part is boring and a bit unnecessary. ditroc is definitely not my cup of tea, although these two dramas are both headline and largely promoted dramas, succession war is way better in my opinion. just the fake colours in ditroc already hurts my eyes after watching the first half hour so i stopped. i have looked at snippets after that and it just looks like a lot of actresses having drama between themselves and does not have anything historically interesting. for succession war i'm actually excited to watch every night. hopefully, this drama's ratings can go up because i had high expectations for it and i genuinely think its a really good drama. since world cup is finished i hope people start watching it and raise the ratings!!
They must be kidding. The four HOTTEST? or UN hottest? Pickings must be pretty slim. Does NOT matter how hot or UNhot Donnie Yuen is. Just never liked the dude from Day 1. In Singlish (local Singapore colloquialism) = I'd say he just gives off a 'yaya' (aka arrogant I think I am all that) vibe. But sorry dude, that look of yours isn't too hot. Esp not that perpetual constipated expression either. Alex Fong?!! Chokes. What in the world ... eeeeks! He is vying to take the trophy for UNcool and UNhot? :P
@jjwong Yes, Ruco would have been awesome as Jiaqing too. I would love to see Ruco and Wayne or Roger together in a drama. It's a shame that he is never in a series with a heavy hitter. Unfortunately, Natalie is the weakest link in this series. I understand he is suppose to love her for her survival grit, but she just does not fit the independent, tough fighter. Her kung fu scenes are quite weak. Although petite, I think Grace Wong would have fit this role better. It is refreshing to have so many intelligent characters - Heshen, Jiaqing, Qianlong, Joel, Elaine, Angelina Lo (even if she is a miscast), and even the butler are all smart. The "good guys" - Selena, the 17th Prince, the 11th Prince, Heshen's son and his princess wife, are actually not bland and are interesting. It's remarkable that almost every character, major or minor, in this huge cast has been given some background or motivation. They are all puzzle pieces that fit their roles.
@funnlim Agree. I like Charmaine so far in the trailer. Love her expression.
After watching the first couple of episodes I feel Ruco has found his mojo back after a poor couple of years...
@rika Yeh. He will get a taste of his own medicine. Let’s see how he feels...
@jjwong Yep.’Deep’ was the easiest filming experience for anyone. Basically put some makeup up on and made the scenes in the studio.No wonder so many past actresses signed up. There was no impression that anyone had any power. The only scene which tried to dispict that they had an army was the entry to the palace where the army was blurred like in a video game. Such a crap series...
Out of SW and Deep, the former is much better of the two. Deep feels like a copy, B-rated series of SW. Deep costumes looked like cheap Halloween. It was 99% on fake cheap sets. Scenes were between 2-4 people at a time. Everything, from plot to character development to scheme, was told and not shown. SM scripts mostly consisted of I did that off scene, my army won fights off scene, I got this superbly important message off scene, I figure out Princess TaiPing scheme off scene. As someone mentioned they recycled the being scapegoats for someone they love 3 times! Miscarriage twice. SW is faster pace and has loads of stuff happenings. Though the emperor does get annoying but he's fresh. He'll have room to improve. If he was a better actor, the development of his character from full of intention righteous king to a super paranoid and mistrust madman would've been more impactful. Though don't understand his die hard hating on Ruco character though. Also even though I don't care for romantic development, but more insight about how and why the king is so in love with Selena and fully trusts and supports her. If I can recast, I would put Ruco in the king's role and Wayne Lai in Heshien role. It's so weird to have to remind myself that Ruco has to be much much older. He's a grandpa xD Natalie is a HUGE miscast. I find Joel character is most interesting. Bet he'll hook up with Elaine later. The old gen concubine, I forgot her name, is also a miscast. I can't see her a scheming old woman. Michelle Yim would've been more suited.
Some of the quotes from the brother Chris don't make sense. Lost in translation perhaps?
Why is the hate and name calling soley toward her? What about him as a peverted old man, "old worm" who knows very well he can exploit young, trophy gf or wife simply because he's rich. I highly doubt he and many other old haggy dudes doesn't know that most young birds flock to them because of their wealth and status. It's on them, the dudes, too that they allow and accept the situation. As someone mentioned, they're both willing parties. So if you're gonna be "hatin'," at least be fair and hatin' both sides.
@alicesky yup... couldn't stand his acting lol. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so @potatochip I plan to give the drama another shot soon when I have time. The story is fine but I just don't like the one acting as Jiaqing.
@littlefish thanks =)
@llwy12 cool thanks
Most people trade their health for money on a daily basis anyway. Sometimes, I feel it is scary how society feeds us the biased view that you have to be filthy rich to be considered "successful" when in reality, happiness and health are much more important.
@littlefish IIRC, rapists, pedos and child murderers get treated the worst in prisons so yeah, he better watch out.
Lol these photos are jokes
@m0m0 Aaron looks hot with or without clothes! These guys only looks hot naked xD
Good to take a rest. Zanilla has been working non stop since Journey of Flower.
@melia880 I share the same thoughts about DITROC in regards to the cheesiness factor. I found every aspect of the series to be cringe-worthy and OTT (from the costumes/makeup, to the acting, to the plot). It was borderline satirical. Absolutely zero depth or originality. I really couldn't connect or sympathize with any of the female characters. (maybe with exception of Lady Cheung) That said, I had initially intended on skipping Succession War, but may change my mind now due to your review.
guy looks pretty cute in this pic, lucky girl
not sure why they wouldn't come out if they are really together.... only reason i could think of probably they are in the early stages of development maybe?
Appreciate seeing so many good observations and analyses! I haven’t watched Succession War yet and to be honest, not really sure if I’m going to, mostly because I don’t have the time or the patience for long, heavy series nowadays (I think I got too used to HKTV, ViuTV, and other stations’ shorter but more substance-filled series). With that said though, it’s good to hear that TVB has a decent series on for once, since most of their series the past few years have bordered on unwatchable. Unfortunately, I did catch some of DITROC when my mom and sister-in-law were watching that series and yes, I agree that the series was ridiculously silly and obviously catered to typical Chinese housewife audiences / Mainland audiences, but hey it got high ratings (both in HK and Mainland) and the series was much talked about all around town and as usual, that’s the only thing that matters in the HK television world. By the way, on a separate but related note....expect to see more series like DITROC and Heart of Greed 3 from TVB in the near future – TVB’s CEO Mark Lee did an interview with MP Finance recently where he outlined the direction of the station in the coming years and it will pretty much be Mainland focused. The mandate is for at least ¼ of their series to be Mainland collaborations (with that number to increase once they get used to the Mainland system) and they will focus more on “tried and true” themes that have been successful in the past – for example, “professional career” series such as cops, lawyers, doctors, etc., palace intrigue series, family conflict series, etc. (because supposedly Mainland audiences LOVE these types of series and as long as they don’t incorporate anything that paints Mainland in a bad light or touch any “taboo” topics, it’s easy to get past the censors). Also, not sure how closely people follow regular news but TVB has been a huge topic of discussion in recent weeks due to them laying off 100+ staff from their TVBI division and also dismantling their sports/athletic department (Sports World, one of their flagship variety programs that has been on the air for 30+ years, recently aired its last episode). In that same MP Finance interview, Mark Lee said that they will no longer bid for broadcast rights for any specialty sports programs (such as Olympics and World Cup for instance) and instead will focus their resources on the OTT / internet portion of their business – including launching an online shopping channel next week (is it just me or are they trying to give HKTV Mall a run for their money??). Also, the Mainland investor who calls the shots at TVB now has some big plans coming down the pike for his own company based in China (including collaborations with several movie and TV production companies in Hollywood) and supposedly TVB will have a part in that. I don’t know about you guys but I’m not fond of the direction that TVB is heading in….how everything is actually going to pan out remains to be seen of course but one thing that’s obvious is that HK audiences are going to be less and less of a priority going forward…
Regarding this series — technically not a ViuTV series, since they didn’t produce it, only bought the rights to broadcast it. Looks like they are buying more HK series now (it was mostly Korean and Mainland series previously) — not necessarily a bad thing as long as they balance it out with their own in-house produced series. With this series, I like Chilam and I know there will be a boatload of veterans in this (I had read about the filming of this series awhile back ago, just didn’t know at that time which station would air it), but unfortunately, this sounds too much like typical TVB-style drama, plus the stuff that Tommy Leung has produced since he left TVB hasn’t been good (the last Media Asia / Tommy Leung production was that TV series remake of Infernal Affairs that had aired on TVB — sorry, but that series sucked...). I’m assuming this series is going to be more of the same...
@hannah Go to viutv’s website (https://www.viu.tv) and create an account. It’s pretty easy and so far, from what I can see, overseas (non-HK) audiences are able to access...and it’s free (for now).
@rika regardless of men or women, he will need to watch his behind from now on xD
LMAO at the Alex Fong one....WTH?
@xingerzhenhaokan Uhm, 158 days to film doesn’t mean she needs to be on set for 158 days. So that math is not really accurate
@hannah based on the trailer, Youku should show it.
Hello all, Let me just throw in my 2 cents and attempt to analyze why the rating isn't reflecting the good script, costume and acting in Succession War. Even the name is good. For one I like ditroc (I lo analyze first) because it was so stupid it was entertaining, like crazy duhhh stupid and sorry but I like that. As I was saying with my bro, it's like a comedy that wasn't meant to be one. Everything was so wrong, the over the top costumes, and hand maiden and people barging in and out not yet announced left right and centre. Oh and how late Edwin Shiu was in one scene to save the emporer's wife it was funny, I told my bro "must have been on a coffe/smoke break". He wasn't punished and even praised when she was stabbed, apparently to a bone, I had a rofl moment. Overall I stuck with this series until the bitter end be well it was so bad it entertained us. As for S.W, even with the good plot (somewhat reflective of history), good acting and praise the lord finally a good script I couldn't stay in tune after ep. 16, I was enjoying France vs. Croatia. This series is so sad. And someone mentioned ambiguous, yup right on! I wasn't familiar with the history so I googled it, and Heshen is as corrupted as they come. But it showed through flashback why he became this way. My bro had a theory, Heshen could very well be an illegitimate son and Q.long favoured him, so in his mind he was a king or a kings equal and the saying One mountain cannot hold 2 tigers. But I wonder if he really was that greedy did anyone wiki? 30banks and 70 pawn shops, holy hell. TBH I find Ruco Chan's acting cunning, calculative and well human. If you win you are/stay King if you lose you are treacherous. But NO it's hard to feel anything but hate towards a man who would kill his own father for the throne, yes you're under his thumb but really? Broke my heart that his father was willing to die knowing he was poisoned. So as someone mentioned I think the director/writer interpretation may have been favouring Heshen as anti Hero so I think it's fair Ruco's portrayal is fair and not leaning to one side. You can tell his character is cunning, calculating and greedy but he was not cold, but rather human. And when his brother died in his arms, that was the moment I felt for this person, he can fail the world but he wouldn't/couldn't face l his brother. In the end, his end was due to revengence, with his wealth and connection he could have leave. For that I salute that character. Lastly, you're gotta be in the mood for that, too heavy. I will finish it when I am in the mood for a good drama as for DITROC I was always in the mood for comedy/ to be entertained and it did not disappoint, well done, 36point well deserve. I laughed, so they laughed all the way to the bank.
Anyway very enhanced... there... And Peter is like checking.. just in case missing... and look as if It's there, ok?!
@m0m0 pictures showed her to be attractive, and she had the hots for Gao.
I'm betting the pics were all enhanced and photoshopped.
@jimmyszeto He gotta watch out for his behind then. xD
this show looks good!
anyone know where i can watch ViuTV's show for free online lol
@funnlim I agree with you that Shaun Tam was good in those scenes and I also found him great when Qianlong confronted him about the poisoning. A bit overused, but he has the one manly tear thing down. His upwards glare is also repetitious, and unintentionally comical because he's probably the tallest main cast member. I have said this elsewhere, but unfortunately the character is always upset so he reminds me of the angry faced emoji with his eyebrows perpetually in a V shape. That expression could be improved and varied. But overall, he caries himself well and is believable as the cunning, paranoid emperor that has the strength to go toe-to-toe with Heshen. In this latest episode (17), I liked the resilience he showed while injured. This drama has a dark and somber tone that one must be in the mood to enjoy. It is an emotional, cerebral chess game. The general HK audience may prefer more lighthearted, easily digestible escapism. I am not belittling that preference because we all need that type of entertainment. I find that I have to work myself up to watch heavy dramas and that is why I haven't watch Handmaid's Tale 2 despite being memorized by the first one. The momentum of the series was dragged down by the Eighth Prince investigating the death of the Eunuch, but fortunately, since he's been banished, it has been full-speed engagement. On one hand, we can say that Heshen is poorly defined, but on the other, he can be described as fascinatingly complex. He doesn't fit a type. He's a dichotomy - intuitive but arrogant, loyal but self-serving, charming but despicable. He has the analytical ability to be reflective but can be overcome with hatred and revenge. He may be ruthless, but he is passionate and warm to those he cares for and I do see why his butler, Elaine and Natalie risk everything for him. I don't know if I like him or even if I am suppose to like him, but I like that he is interesting. Admittedly, it may be the Ruco effect, and there really should be more flashbacks to his youth, but the brief glimpses with Qianlong and his brother were enough for me to root for him, or at least root for him to win some battles. I actually cheer for Jiaqing too. It's like watching a great tennis match where you want both competitors to score jaw-dropping, unbelievable points. Heshen was holding back when Qianlong died, but now he is full-force scheming with multiple assassinations and psychological manipulations. Defense becomes offense. I enjoyed the gentle guidance he gave to his grandson contrasted with the vindictive assassination. Now that was fun. I am gleefully watching the plotting. I am also surprised how impressive Selena has been, especially today. Her past relationship with Heshen is unnecessary. There's enough hatred between Jiaqing and Heshen, no need for more with this angle. Maybe, her history with him might be useful later, but besides them sweetly reminiscing about the horse stable, there's no emotional connection left. He did not care if she died with Jiaqing and she has no signs of longing for him at all. I really hope the ratings improve because that's all TVB cares about. It's a shame.
How I interpreted the article’s title: because they don’t look hot elsewhere x”D Donnie’s pic: look like he just finished weeing >_> Body wise: Peter is indeed the best but his post is terrible >_> anyway, I don’t find any of these hot lawl, in term of picture or selling the product lol.
Lol he looks so much like when he was in warm blood cold heart (fashion wise), just older xD Toby looks great! Will check this out for sure xD
I think Peter is the hottest..obviously. LOL.
@mangotango I think Ben was in better shape when competing in Mr. Hong Kong. As for the nude photo, it's probably tastefully done, maybe a side view. Don't expect it to be too risque. As for the actor that I find with the most distracting biceps, it's Eddie Peng. When watching him in crime films, he looks more like a supermodel. :)
Woohoo. What a super hot body.
@m0m0 She appears to be supportive as she and daughter are now staying in Australia with their passports kept by Aussie authorities. It is a big sacrifice.
@msxie0714 Not easy to look good without attractive hairdo. A face with excellent bones and features will help. The caucasians will fare better. Holy cow..... suddenly so many dramas about Qianlong. No wonder Yu Zheng was bad mouthing other Qing dynasty costumes. To up his own production against others.
Similar actors Similar plot Rinse & repeat. *yawn*
@diana80 I thought Shaun Tam did very well but he tends to raise his voice too much until his voice breaks. Those who says he is one dimensional certainly did not watch the scenes when his father died or the one where he shen walked past him when delivering a bowl of noodle, etc etc. Both actors did subtlety well except Shaun is more raw. But at least I know who is jiaqing about. He shen is ambigous. I had hoped Ruco should just go all out greedy and ego instead of holding back. I hate to see He shen as hero of any kind, which he isn;'t even by this series' standard.
Yu Zheng is a rubbish producer and his costumes will make eyes hurt. But his series earn high ratings and is popular. However Charmaine can do cunning and I would love TVB to do an palace series where she is the villain 100%. Because for me Charmaine can play a smart manipulative woman and she can do villains well, better than goody 2 shoes.
Pity to those who stopped. For what it is worth, best show thus far. The scenery and costume and effect and background all are top notch. For once tvb really fills up the screen with people. Performances so far has been above decent. For me it is a battle of team he shen and team jia qing. I like that it didn't start with present and move to silly past scenes and working towards present. This series just goes off in present with one or 2 steps back to explain certain parts which makes it different and unique. Quite a lot of thought for the writing, and all else. production value is high for sure. Although some scenes are insane, some motivations are crazy and seems like it is showing heshen may be darn corrupt and his brother doing the bad deeds, he is not as bad as the emperor who is a jealous petty psycho. Well rumours has it and i would say with ruco as the hero or anti hero, series is working towards that route which I absolutely abhor. As for the 2 main actors, Ruco is doing well but I find his he shen confusing. Everyone, even himself seems to acknowledge he is corrupt and did the things he was accused of doing. He is no decent person. And he is supposed to be supremely confident, egoistical and above even the emperor. Like how Caocao is. But there is no grace to his heshen. I find his heshen self absorbed and thinks of himself too highly. He is a problem left by the dead ex emperor who deservedly and in of the best scene thus far, snubbed by his son at his death bed. That scene alone was so well filmed, so atmospheric and I was thinking what would the emperor do? Strangle the ex emperor? Well he did better than that. Or that scene where the emperor screamed at his father for letting he shen go, in away loving he shen more than him. Plenty of infuriating but well filmed moments in this series. Also silly ones, but at least the good ones are pretty great. But I find he shen not very well defined. And I can't understand why anyone is so loyal to him (not about money) considering what he did or the consequences of his action. Shaun Tam is a surprise. For once there is a good looking guy who looks robust, well built, and looks good in a qing costume and he looks kingly. And yes, his acting is raw, he raises his voice too much but he never screams or screech. His raises his voice like how his emperor would because his jiaqing was desperate. He was under the thumb of his dad, and now under the most corrupt man that he hates with a passion and he can't do anything about it. As the series progresses, he shen realises the emperor isn't stupid and at times could outsmart him. At this point, as I watch this at times smart brilliant series, but at all times very beautiful to look at series, I want he shen dead and I hate jiaqing to be s psycho as heshen says he is. Do watch it. first few episodes are some of the most atmospheric scenes and yes as the series progresses it gets infuriating but the acting isn't one of them. For me Shaun Tam is servicable as Jiaqing and I get his POV in his interpretation of this very very very low self esteem emperor. Actually I like him. I find him very attractive in this role and when he is not shouty, he actually speaks in a deep voice which befits an emperor. So far so good. I kinda could see where this is heading but what I like is the different approach this series is taking and it is out of my expectations. Only real criticism, apart from the weak interpretation of the ambigous he shen and the need to villify jiaqing is that it is too long. In its current form, I feel at best 15 episodes will do. Any longer it is just dragging the series and it isn't good. Why ratings is down is because HK viewers don't enjoy 2 men battling wits, they like 5 women bickering and fighting.. By the way he shen is doomed, that we know. Question is how the emperor gets him in the end. But I feel this series got it wrong. If He shen is supposed to be the one we cheer for, then this series is failing for me. Never at any time did I feel poor heshen, last 28 days, he is doomed. Never. There was never a sense of dread or pity or what ifs with this he shen because I just don;t like him. If TVB is gonna twist history, might as well go all the way and create a he shen we can all emphatise with and feel for him and make him sink deeper into his own undoing because by the time of his death we should all feel oh what a waste, I feel for him, etc etc. That's the problem with this format. We have a short flashback on his poor chilldhood, some scenes where he was bullied. Not much to give the viewers to hold on to and feel for him emotionally. maybe this series would have worked better as a longer series with a proper flashback scene in the traditional sense. Something like how Bu Bu Jing Xin did for the 8th prince where in the end as he sat in his prison about to drink his poisoned wine, you get a sense of pity for him. Before that was a sense of dread knowing he will die. Not with this he shen.
@rika Might not be allowed to go near women for a few years now. The only contact he might have will be aggressive men in showers....
Not watched Succession War yet but I can’t see any palace drama worse than Deep Beyond the Realms of Conscience. It was terrible and had no plot but tailor made for the Chinese audience with its dialogue and romance. Glad the franchise is coming to an end. The problem with succession war though is that it is based on an uninteresting period in history and we all know the fate of Heshen before watching.....
At least Kevin is more likely to make a breakthrough in the movie industry then Chilam....
@diana80 Agree that Succession War is decent, and will say I think it's significantly better than Deep in the Realm of Conscience. DITROC was a joke to me... 95% of the plot was delivered through 1 on 1 talking. There was barely any acting except standing in some palace chamber or garden with another person either 1) throwing insults or 2) making endless vows of love. The "schemes" were too deliberate and honestly gave me the vibe that Tai Ping had a daily routine of getting up every morning, stretching, and brainstorming a grand entrance to try and ruin the emperor. And yes, Nancy's overreaction was very silly... one empress in a harem of one consort... the whole plot was extremely modernized that it made everyone seem very foolish. On the contrary, I enjoy the creativity put into Succession War. It's a bit "boring" because issues are presented so seriously and the dialogue is heavier, but the acting is overall better and the plot is less cheesy. I like the storytelling method with the flashbacks and the 1 episode = 1 day concept.
About her health question,her studio has issued a statement that says she just worked for a long time, tired, some minor problems, normal rest, no heart disease, no cerebral thrombosis. In addition to her remuneration, 5 million RMB a day is impossible.PA taken a total of 158 days, so that her payment is only 800 million RMB,it's incredible.In fact,she earned about 400 thousand RMB per episode in PA.
@diana80 I think Succession War is quite interesting and the last few episodes have been exciting. I have been rambling about it in the other post, lol. I liked the horse chase in Episode 16. Poor horse, hope none were injured in that scene.
@vell I know i may be biased, but give it another try. Episodes 12 onward have been much better. More depth is given to Ruco's character.
@coralie Not so high. In fact, she earned about 400 thousand RMB per episode in PA.
@mangotango well, his name and fame has completely tarnished, i wonder if his wife would pay the settlement given that he's admitting that he's cheated out in the open.
@rika yea Guo Jing Jing's love story was very authentic and sweet. She's a definite Cinderella.
Kevin looks older in that first pic than some of the guys who are older than him in the movie. He hasn't aged well...
I love the colors, the intricate settings & detailed accessories. Charmaine is a nice addition. Not in love with Yu Zheng. They need to retire this guy; he's as bad if not worse than Wong Jing of HK. Arguably he's worse than WJ because at least Wong Jing doesn't copy others (he copies the old stuff he made before.) I dread the production whenever his name is associated. I think a lot of Mainlanders feel the same and have mentally prepared themselves for a plot dump.
looks like chilam gained weight for the role
@anon the lady has been reported a 36 yo lady and not pretty. men are just pigs.
@anon This "Wang Jing" is a man who is of the same age as Gavin according to news.
Am i the only one here who think that Succession War is a decent drama & at times...find it rather catchy than Deep in the Realm of Conscience? I understand the complaints about Shaun Tham who acts as the Emperor. His acting is one-dimensional with the same facial expressions in almost every scenes. But the story is not as bad and Ruco delivers good performance...alongside the veterans who also act well in their characters. Besides, although the female leads of Succession War are not great actresses like Nancy Wu or Alice Chan, but i'm fine with the decent performances by Selena Li, Elaine Yiu and Natalie Tong. In fact, i find Selena Li's character is more like an Empress with at least few concubines (although just kelefes) under her to show her superiority as the Imperial Consort. It's unlike Nancy Wu's character who only has Chrissie Chau as the emperor's concubine...but that one and only concubine has already caused the Empress (Nancy) to be so busy and creating havoc in the harem...LOL.
@vell lol the chill out got me dead XD yup he just overacted and the plot....I actually stopped at first ep.
Z storm S storm L storm What next ? ABC storm ?!
@anon Isn't Wang Jing the male partner?
@littlefish even a handsome guy looks unattractive with a Manchu pigtail/half dome hairstyle
I watched till episode 6 and stopped. I love Ruco's acting, but man...the one acting as Emperor is so over the top in both his acting and facial expression. I can understand he is angry but chill out, lol. Also the story is not as interesting after Qian Long died. I wish he stayed alive until the final day of Heshen.
Not surprising that the guys will prefer to settle out of court. They can be stuck in Australia for years if the case drags on. Keep the fly trap tightly closed when overseas. LOL
Who's got a pic of Wang Jing? She better be hot.
Next time, Gavin should just engage escorts; definitely cheaper than AUD 10 million and purely business.
@tiffany Yu Zheng just wants make more money, his series is so bad lately, it’s not worth watching! And c-drama will just get longer and longer because they can sell for more, therefore so much drags! I agree with you, China needs to put a limit on these drama! But they are combating this by having part 1 and part 2 >_> About this series, I don’t know any of the male leads, they don’t look good or attractive in anyway, so a minus. Apart from Charmaine, I think I’ve seen the main girl from somewhere but she didn’t look that great nor the drama plot interest me enough, plus it’s YU Zheng’s production, I’ll stay clear lol
@tiffany my bad, didn’t remember the horse scene in the palace. Only heard about the injuries she incurred while trying to do the stunts herself for princess agent
70? My gosh! There should be a limit on the number of episodes lol
@littlefish I thought @davy is referring to the horse scene in the movie, Palace. ZLY injured her spine when she was dragged off the horse.
@davy I didn’t even think her liver problem was connected to her weight loss. It is indeed a very dangerous thing. Since a lot of the other thing, can be fixed by surgery, and she can afford top notch treatment, physiologist, dietician, surgeons, etc. Princess agent is a joke when it comes to those action scenes, like you said it did not look good, so it was not worth it. And along side of not looking good, they didn’t even bother editing well to hide the fact that they use body double. I think she should have picked doing the choreography of some of the martial art scenes by herself than pick jumping off the horse!
@nomad822 I agree with you that it does seems she made the sacrifice. Funny enough, at the beginning, I thought she’s just a spoiled rich child who doesn’t know the meaning of sacrifice, at least this article improved my POV on her a bit! I swear sometimes men just need to man up and admit they were wrong!!!
I was a fan of Joe Ma but ever since that scandal news came up between him and benny Chan I kinda dispise him those pic clearly shows what they were doing to Rose Chan even tho benny shows the most agressive towards the girl he too had some sort body contact with her and they know how old she is too and he didnt even make a move to stop what Benny was doing he only showed a big fat smile and when the pic went viral he quickly distance himself from Benny and act like i didnt do anything im not so close to him but for sure they were like a pea in a pod hanging out togther this shows what kind of a person he is
Wow, since 12... they literally grew up together. It’s really a close family member that you will never want to give up. Happy anniversary to them.
I live in the US and this is actually the first series that I have had a chance to watch in "real time" instead of binge watching. Usually, I would wait till the end to comment, but because I am inpatient with this "real time" watching, forgive me for being the weirdo rambling to herself over here. I found the "let's unnerve the king with spooky superstition" scenes a little silly. Fortunately, those were over soon, and things became much more exciting from Episodes 12-15. The brotherhood relationship between Heshen and Helin gave the character more depth and intensified the drama. The scene where he tentatively unveiled Helin's tortured fingernails was captivating. Ruco's eyes were flaming red as he suppressed his rage. I felt his guilt and despair in trying to save his brother, ultimately, suffering crushing defeat. I like that we are seeing some of Heshen's terrible deeds with how he let commoners die. Ruthlessly practical, the ends justifies the means. He was going to blow up Joel along with Jiaqing, which was poorly conceived because of his desperation. Each episode is suppose to represent a day, but so much happens, the timeline doesn't allow the heavy drama to settle and take full impact. There are very few light scenes. I enjoyed the gentle teasing scenes between him and his butler. I know TVB is trying to make the audience sympathetic to him by giving him many loyal relationships (his butler, Elaine, and Natalie), but I think this dimension is realistic. Someone like Heshen can't get to such a position of power without remarkable social/emotional intelligence. I think Shaun Tam has a lot of potential. He is convincing as the calculating but paranoid emperor. But his character is so perpetually angry that he reminds me of the red-faced angry emoji with his eyebrows locked in a V shape. Hopefully, his character relaxes a bit as he becomes more triumphant. In general, I like Natalie Tong in other dramas. She has a lot of room to improve in her acting, but she does have a sweet charisma. Unfortunately, it is hard to believe her as a tough businesswoman/kung fu fighter that Heshen entrusts, with little back-up, to retrieve damning evidence against him and his brother. I think I would like Grace Wong in this role instead. She is also thin as a toothpick, but she was great as the scrappy, kick-butt Fa Man in AFWFW. I also thought her chemistry with Ruco was more romantic than sibling-like. It reminds me of their sizzling dance performance many years ago. Oh well, maybe in the future they can be in another series together as a couple. But that's me going off on a tangent, I am still hoping against hope that this series does not shift to a strong romantic focus. It is probably my preconceptions of Angelina Lo as the bubbly, dim mama characters, but I don't know if I can get into her scheming grand consort role. Joel was great begging for his life. I had to laugh because he had to do that back-to-back. Poor guy is a lonely but fascinating wild card.
I believe the losing tons of weight thing was way more dangerous than the Palace injury. So many actresses suffer all sort of diseases because of that, I strongly discourage it. In fact being overly too skinny is not even pretty, made them look like a swollen water bottle. But I do strongly lament that the falling from horse scene was not even goodly shot at too, totally could've been done by a doll. Not worth the effort at all!
It's kinda crazy how their photos show the progression of the era they lived in just by pure fashion/hair choices. They've known each other since 12... that's even more crazy. I'm personally not a fan of Joe Ma, but even I think that's pretty impressive.
Amazing and they still look so great!!!
@tiffany agreed - but when each day brings in 5 million bucks, I imagine it's pretty hard to say no.
Whoa, blood clots are dangerous. Actors should take care of themselves.
Yay!! Happy for this two and 5 years apart that’s nothing just like the rest older woman with younger man for an example: Tavia and Him, Ruby and Wallace, Yoyo and Vincent.
@janice omg!! She looked even more scarier than this lady here she seem familiar though still no idea who she is but thanks anyway. Plastic surgery are scary sometimes.
@janet72 As you have said. Sometimes people (myself included) DO see red flags. But in the 'romantic' and idealism of Youth, some may think trying harder or being more accomodating is 'romantic'. Or that people will change over time. Lucky for them they have no kids. for eg: "Arissa stated that Vanness often got too friendly with females, failing to return home on some days, as well as never admitting fault in their arguments." He must have shown signs of London = > Paris roving eyes even during their relationship (and her crowd of pretty friends), but she may chosen to ignore it. Or fought over it, and forgiven again. Anyone without a strong centre for values or respect for partner, will err and err again. This heiress sounds like she did make sacrifices - she moved to Taiwan, when cushy home is in Singapore.
@jayne Uhm, the one I saw was they were in bed, with the ultrasound scan on top of Leanne, while Cho Lam is making a surprise face, kinda like a poster of a movie/drama. It could be a photoshop picture lol!
@coralie I think the only one whom can be given the benefit of the doubt of not being a gold digger is Guo Jing Jing.
@cutie777 This is other one I am talking that I managed to find an article on. Fanny Sieh. Her face looks totally deformed after she has done too many plastic surgeries that it destroyed her face. She looked great even before the surgery and honestly didn't need it. https://plastytalk.com/plastic-surgery-addiction-led-to-hong-kong-actress-fanny-sieh-disfigurement/
Wow. Congratulations!! I was hoping it was Tavia turn to be pregnant maybe Eliza is next never know.
@littlefish Leanne posted the photo of her ultrasound on Instagram. Are you referring to the image of the Chinese baby Cho Lam put on his Weibo?
Jayne, you should include their announcement photo, it’s quite cute :)
@janice have no idea who she is but I just thought she looked scary that’s all you could be right about having a plastic surgery too much. About the other two you’re talking about no idea who are they either if you know their Chinese name?
@cutie777 No, she probably looks even more scary without the makeup, lol. It's actually because she had a lot of plastic surgery done in the past which leads to why she looks like this now. But yes, her makeup also makes her look quite scary as she often looks like a drag queen or scary clown. There's also another HK actress like her who had too much plastic surgery done and her face is just as messed up too. I don't know what both of their name is in English...I am trying to find both their pictures to show you what they look like.
Congratulations to the lovely couple! I have loved him since The New Adventures of Chor Lau-heung and The Grand Canal. I wish them the best!
only 25?! she's been around for a long time. she definately doesn't look 25. more like 35....
@coralie "I understand gigi’s situation, but again, she wouldn’t have bat her hubbie an eye either if he didn’t have money or helped her out so much" Sooooo true but then again her love life had been colorful too before this rich older hubby. She actually had a much older bf or bfs in her younger days. The timing was good for her b/c let's face it she was not exactly "young" like this one now when she married the dude.
@janet72 yeah I know, but it makes rosina look worse imo. she's already rich, why she need to marry an even richer guy? notice how very few articles mention his age. you think she'd bat him an eye if he was on the same level as her? she was gold-digging, just on a very inconspicuous level. I understand gigi's situation, but again, she wouldn't have bat her hubbie an eye either if he didn't have money or helped her out so much. someone I question if she's a true gold-digger is cathy tsui. she married a very, very wealthy man, but their ages are very close and she's actually dated regular folks too.
only 25 and already in scandal earlier with joe ma and that other actor. bosco has moved on rather fast...I thought he is with a Japanese girl. times have really changed. men and women change partners so fast.
@coralie rosina lam is a rich girl herself...cousin of Raymond whose father is the 'Stanley ho of macau'. gigi lai came from a poor family and after her brother was involved in a serious accident, her hubby helped them financially. it's hard to imagine starting a family with a man 40 years older than herself. the husband is old enough to be her father!
they were together for 7 years on-again, off-again before marriage. they should know better than to get married. the 5 years they were married was really wasted...time is precious and don't expect either party to change after marriage. it will be blessed if neither change for the worse.
@hetieshou Yeah, if s relationship is already not smooth before marriage it is unlikely to improve after marriage. Do not marry if we cannot accept each other strengths and weaknesses. Looks like they will still trying to change each other after marriage.
@wm2017 Same! I'm surprised that she's only 25.
@hetieshou it's a little bit like JB & SG's relationship. everyone wanted them to have a happily ever after. but now it shows, there's always a reason for an on/off again relationship. they don't last most of the time. I'm not surprised by allegations of vanness' narcissism. he kinda struck me as one with his behavior a few years ago before he found 'God.'
When I was watching that cop series OCT or something I was goggling the age of those. I was shocked to find out this girl was only 25 as she looked like she was over 35 in that series. What a transformation up there. lol :D
@littlefish No, they do not have any kids together, thank goodness or else it would be an even bigger disaster. I agree that they should not even date from the beginning. Even when dating, they would fight and break up over and over again. After they married, the same pattern repeats itself. They remind me of one of my cousins whose marriage was short lived as well. There were clearly many red flags before marriage but they went ahead and married anyways which was a big mistake. I guess they just wanted a big wedding celebration which is the easy part but the marriage life after that is what is difficult. Anyways,hope they will find someone more suitable and move on.
Do they share children together? These two sound like they shouldn’t even go out at the start, let alone marrying one another >_< I don’t know what they were thinking!
I believe there is true love between them. They have been dating for 3 years before tying the knot. That's not a short time. Youth and money might be the initial attraction. But, it needs more than that to make a relationship last.
@smurf That's very true, what you said.
Nice and sweet. Making an effort to show love and appreciation for Helen's companionship.
Aww.. congratulations!! I actually loves her dress better than Gillian Chung a lot. The lady with the red colorful dress looked a bit scary maybe because of her makeup?
@davy i definitely agree, but the thing is that he started trying to see her while he was still dating someone else. that's why everyone else is so mad.
@nomad822 a lot of celebrities we know dabbled in those 'transactional' relationships and were left unscathed. their reputation suffered a little, but made a comeback eventually. like isabella leung, gigi lai, carman lee, rosina lam, anita yuen, etc. it's all about perception and how the PR team spins it. as long as they have money, anything can be washed from black to white. maybe this woman thinks the same philosophy can apply to her.
@rika Maybe if Gallen is younger? He looks very tired and haggard in his last TVB drama. Regardless, not looking forward to this remake. The original was really good, Masaharu was so good looking, Eguchi and all the younger siblings were convincing in their roles, I didn't even mind watching Noriko Sakai, lol.
Wow, so beautiful and it shows that you can always find love again regardless of what age and get married even late in life. I am deeply touched and so happy for them. Hope they are happy always! Is that Maggie Chan in the group photo? Great to see her as I have not seen her in a long time.
@kidd Glad you are watching it and yup, those 2 are big miscasts! I love the overall adaption though. I did not like the actress for Ah Xiu at all. Yes! She does not look or feel like Ah Xiu since she cannot act well and does not suit the character at all. Do not get me going on Shi Jian! She was even more annoying. Her looks are way off because Shi Jian should be attractive but they choose a chubby actress for this role and turned her into a comic relief. Luckily she is a supporting role so does not have much screen time. Big disappointment! I like the actress for Ding Dang more.
@janet72 Yup! There is no way escaping trouble whether you marry a young or old rich guy. That singer and actress that I am referring to is a Korean. Her name is Ham So Won I think. I heard she is now pregnant through IVF. She married a rich Chinese guy who is only 24. I forgot his name but you can look up her name and see their names and photos. He is young, rich and handsome while her face looks very fake and plastic. Their marriage is odd due to the big age gap. Some think she is using him for money while he is using her for her fame as he was a former idol trainee that did not make it. Time will tell since they have an 18 year age gap. Yes and marrying a young guy, you have to deal with the parents while marrying an old guy you must deal with his kids. There is no way around it. These women want a free meal ticket with no trouble? No way!
He is really tall and she looks pretty nice really.
That’s sweet how they decided to give their love a go and that it went well.
@m0m0 Fukuyama is still a hot ojii-san till now. xD
Awwww, this pair is really sweet. <3 <3 <3
happy for this couple. congrats!
@nomad822 cathy tsui's husband is not that old. with 2 sons, she is set for life with so many properties. there isn't a mother in law meddling. but this actress is only 26. she realized acting is not a walk in the park with TVB's punishing schedule. since there is a 66 year old rich guy, why not? but he is definitely older than her parents. even nicky wu's mother in law is about the same age as him. this 26 year old will find many rich tai tais gossiping at the crowd she attends. 40 years difference...faint! she will be fighting with his kids for property.
@nomad822 I am pretty sure such women have long equated "dignity, self respect and peace of mind" to the dollar sign. LOL!
@bearbear I think drama actor wise......Gallen Lo might have been a better choice since he is versatile enough to play a hot headed character. Can't really think of anyone else who could play Eguchi Yosuke's character.
@llwy12 Thanks for the information but nah, I have no interest in checking out remakes to "validate" their quality against the original. Time is too precious to waste it in watching remakes when I could spend it in watching more new originals from other countries.
@hetieshou OT. I watch 3 episode of Xia Ke Xing. You are right about the casting of Ah Xiu and Shi Jian. They are a miscast. The actress for Ah Xiu not only does not look or feel like Ah Xiu, she can't even act properly. As for Shi Jian, I wonder why they turn this character into a comic relief.
I watch this episode. During Pheobe's cooking time, Ruco kept giving instructions to Phoebe even for simple task (e.g. putting the prawns into the wok) like she doesn't know how to cook at all. Maybe it's all an act for the show. His action does not reflect what he said in this article.
The show is getting more and more enjoyable. The cooking participants and guest judges are funny. The 3 main hosts are also slowly getting into rhythm. I actually prefer to watch the beauties that can cook more than those who can't. Hope they can get at least one decent cook every episode. Lastly, the fixed dish on the first round are too complicated. At least choose a dish that is achievable for the contestants. You can see some beauties that failed in the first round actually cook some delicious dish in the second round which is more freestyle.
@llwy12 You can catch Trading Floor here. It's the Cantonese version. icdrama(dot)se/hk-drama/1064-the-trading-floor/
@anon Haven’t heard anything about when Stained is going to air. Last I saw on their Facebook page, they’ve been screening the series at various film festivals around the globe (Patrick Kong basically took the 5 episode TV series version and turned it into a mini-movie). I think that might be why there’s no air date yet. Some good news though for those who didn’t get a chance to watch Fox Asia’s other series The Trading Floor when it premiered in May. Latest news is that ViuTV bought the broadcast rights to the series so they are going to air it on their channel soon. I haven’t watched it yet because I can’t access Fox Plus here in the U.S. (didn’t want to bother with VPN) and I refuse to watch the Mandarin-dubbed version on Tencent. I’m assuming they will do the same thing with Stained later on. As much as I dislike Patrick Kong and his stupid rom-com movies, Stained is definitely a huge departure for him so hopefully it’s nothing like what he usually outputs…regardless though, even if the script (which he supposedly wrote) sucks (not saying it will of course), I’m definitely still going to watch because I know for sure that with Kara Hui, Anthony Wong, and Tse Kwan Ho leading the cast, the acting is going to be phenomenal!!
Dude needs a makeover and 2018 update, starting with that hairdo at least. (she looks quite diff in some pictures - like Kpop girls, compared with that picture up there - looks kinda tanned and sporty plus maybe intelligent). :) IF it's she's just for financial benefits and a sugar daddy, then take the perks (free houses, cars, bags. clothes, free shops or businesses or whatever) and leave. Many of them do that, no strings attached. WHY marriage? (Cally Kwong might be kept too - she's got plenty of businesses and she's obviously into moolah. Even her pet pooch is called Cash. There was even a movie back then, which could be mirroring her life - she was the main actress in that movie. So are many in her group of actress friends - do nothing significant in acting/singing, have investments and run business, attend art exhibitions etc). I forget the name of one significant one - she only had a few airhead bimbotic movies, certainly not enough to live forever in luxury. There's supposedly a nice underground market and mamasans (Fei Ma is supposed one of those pimps aka matchmakers) to connect willing actresses with the willing wealhy clients. Short term, and long term (including Sultan of B ... someone back then was on his yacht. They take a hiatus from work, and go off making extra pocket money). Even names like Anita Yuen, Ada Choi etc all did their stints running with the wealthy crowd. Gigi Fu is another who did nothing wonderful in her career but appears at dog shows and is some dog advocate these days. Dogs and their maintenace ain't cheap either. ;) Back then when she was married to her China tycoon before he went to jail, she had 2 penthouses here in Canada (staff of bank HS + BC Vancouver might know). Last read years ago, she was running around with the 2nd son (fu er dai) of some chae-bol family. 66 yr old dude could live until 96 ... she'd be 56 then. So UNworth it, imo - IF it is about the $. And what's the joy hanging around with the party-ball scene society//Cova high tea crowd; since everyone would KNOW exactly how you got entry to this lifestyle and crowd? Esp among the old-money, old-rich wealthy? NO dignity or pride whatsever, even if you now have the moolah and status. And carry limited edited Hermes, just like baby machine Cathy Tsui. With marriage - sure she might be entitled to some legally. But in places like Canada living together/marriage is about the same - you can have the same 50%. Dignity, self respect and peace of mind is more important than ANY money in the world.
@llwy12 Any word when STAINED will be broadcasting? I'm looking forward to that.
@hetieshou marrying a rich young chap...the girl would have to deal with his parents. What’s that female singer’s name? The one who married Alex Ho and gave birth to a girl. Raymond Lam’s family disliked Karena. Marrying a 66 year old, one would have to deal with his children. Rosamund Kwan was married to this rich guy but his twin daughters disliked her. Which 66 year old man would be a bachelor?
Would rather have the Japanese remaking their classics. This drama is one of my personal favorites (Masaharu, be still my heart) even though I have never been a fan of Noriko Sakai. The Japanese were very good at making heart warming and touching dramas.
@rika Agree, Chilam's image is closer to Masaharu's than Yōsuke Eguchi. Character wise, the eldest brother, Tatsuya Kashiwagi, is a soft-hearted, self-giving, goofy big brother probably suits another actor better. If Chow Yun Fatt has been much younger, he will be my choice.
@janet72 Good point you raised! One big problem with marrying older men are they are usually widowers or divorcees with kids. The kids will fight for the assets and money after the father dies.
@janet72 Yes, I cannot imagine being with anyone so much older or younger. It is just plain weird. Sadly many do not marry for love these days and it is clearly not love in this case.
@sugarcane You bought up some good points since older rich guys are not picky like the younger guys who would expect more. Plus the young guys have their parents to deal with too while these older men most likely does not. Did you hear about the 42 year old Korean actress who married the young and rich 24 year old rich guy? That rich guy was actually a trainee to be a idol but did not make it so gave up. I think her name is Ham So Won or something like that. They have a 18 year age gap which is pretty big too, but people frown more as the girl is older. Many think he is using her for fame while he is with her for money as his family is rich. I doubted their “marriage” as well due to such a big age gap. His parents were heartbroken and highly opposed their marriage too. I personally would not be able to be with a guy too much older or too much younger. It would be very weird and some blindly think that it is true love. They are so naive, however, most do not seem to marry for love anymore sadly. You are so right that men who are very old may not have much time left and they can take a big payout after he dies. What a shameful thing to do.
@coralie Very true that there are always going to be gold diggers but it is just too obvious in this case. At 66 I am not sure if he will die that soon unless he gets sick or something. However, if he does she is eligible for a big chunk of his money unless he has kids who will grab it before she does.
@davy Good point! And therein lies one of the biggest problems with being on the TVB “promoted” list — the artists are guaranteed to get typecast in the same roles over and over and over again. That’s why, as weird as it sounds, it’s actually better to be a second tier supporting artist because management — thinking those artists aren’t worth paying much attention to — will usually leave them alone, which is actually a blessing in disguise because it in essence gives them the freedom to develop on their own. Basically, once TVB management sets their sights on an artist, their career as an actual actor / actress is over...
@janet72 Marrying for love is rare ideal, but marriages for benefits/convenience or as a business arrangement is more common.
@llwy12 But the problem is she still play that type of role more interesting than the actresses today. Most actresses today are also stuck in that same roles only too. Especially after they age it's even harder and even quite unacceptable to do the cute jolly roles instead. Playing a "beauty" without being a great beauty will cause riots too. Jessica does match the independent strong woman role very much and I was glad she did well in them. She is not even that pretty but back then, even TVB can write better storylines than what we have today. Like Step into the Past, Square Pegs, Chinese Ghost Story, they were all very notable and well written...or, for at least a minimum of unexceptional 10 - 15 episodes before they go downward.
@anon Frankie is good as supporting lol I enjoyed his performances in WTAP1, FH1&2, etc.
@anon I mentioned a little bit about the other stations in the other thread about Stephen Shiu Jr’s company remaking that Japanese series…but to answer your question – yes the other stations are filming series, though not a whole lot in comparisons to TVB of course. ATV is still hellbent on remaking A Better Tomorrow into a TV series (and they actually did buy the rights to that one, lol), though very few details have been forthcoming so who knows if / when that will actually happen (especially now that the 3 big guns who were originally running ATV – Ng Yu, Peter Au, and Tsang Sing Ming have officially switched back to being “consultants” now rather than “executives”). And no, they are not remaking My Date With a Vampire anymore (even though they had announced it earlier) because Fox Asia has the rights to that franchise now and have already stated that they intend on remaking their own version of MDWAV in the future (ATV got slapped big time for that “mistake”). Fantastic Television is pretty much dead (meaning barely anyone even knows they exist, lol) – supposedly they are still filming those “love-themed” series that they’ve been doing since before they launched but they haven’t said much publicly and I honestly don’t think too many people care. ViuTV has actually been doing pretty well (the World Cup broadcast the past few weeks severely boosted their ratings). They actually just had a press conference announcing a few of their new series being filmed – the big one is the Prequel to their successful Detective Psycho series from last year (the one that starred David Siu and Vincent Wan). This time around, they invited Adam Cheng and Michael Tao to reunite (the last time the 2 of them filmed a series together was The Greed of Man from 25 years ago) and star in the prequel alongside Bryant Mak, Brian Chan, and Neo Yau (the 3 of them will play the younger versions of the 3 main characters from the first season – I think Bryant Mak will play Vincent’s character, Neo will play David’s character, and Brian Chan will play Paul Che’s character). There’s another series ViuTV announced that will consist of a younger cast led by singers Endy Chow and Deep Ng – the series is called Reboot and I still need to read up on the details but it sounds like it will be a super hero-themed series (something along the lines of X-Men, except without all the fancy costumes and CGI and whatnot). I read some stuff about other web series being filmed as well but don’t have the details on those at the moment. Also still waiting for word on OCTB season 2 (they keep putting up teasers on their Facebook page but have yet to make any formal announcements about cast or filming…argh!). As mentioned in the other article, Stephen Shiu Jr’s company is planning to remake the Japanese classic “Under One Roof” for their hmvod channel (though latest word is that cast is not confirmed yet). Basically, there are some options out there aside from TVB, for those who are interested – though of course, TVB is still going to dominate because at the end of the day, TVB is still more prolific and easier to access (I read an article today about why TVB continues to go strong despite audiences criticizing their series left and right – a lot of it has to do with ease of access as well as target audiences). Of course, compared to the outside world (meaning outside of HK), the choices aren’t much (and if you are looking for pure HK series with no Mainland investment involved, good luck because there are barely any aside from OCTB and a few of ViuTV’s series). With Another Era – oh yea, I forgot that Dominic Lam is in it too, but doesn’t sound like his role will be major. I also like most of the veterans in the series, but doubt they will have a whole lot of screen time (the only one whom it looks like might have a meaty role aside from the leads is Pat Poon – he’s good, but not an actor I would necessarily turn the TV on for). Not a fan of any of the main female leads in the series and unfortunately Frankie Lam is hit and miss for me (I liked his HKTV series but much of that was because the scripts for those series were well-written).
So….Stephen Shiu Jr posted on Facebook that the cast for the remake is actually not confirmed yet and that they will make the official announcement once everything is in place. Looks like he had been getting a lot of concerned phone calls about the choice of cast and so he felt the need to release a statement about it. Basically, at this point, the remake will definitely happen, but exact details, including cast list, will be forthcoming at a later date. On a separate but related note….honestly, in this day and age, audiences need to stop assuming that any mention of a HK series must automatically mean it is produced by TVB. There are 2 additional free-to-air TV stations in HK now and even though one of those stations (Fantastic Television aka i-Cable) essentially has zero output in terms of series, ViuTV (NowTV’s free TV arm) has been consistently filming series (though of course their output is nowhere near TVB’s) and most of theirs are of much higher quality overall, at least the ones I’ve seen so far (speaking of ViuTV, they recently had their blessing ceremony for their next big series -- the Detective Psycho Prequel, which will star Adam Cheng and Michael Tao with Bryant Mak, Brian Chan, and Neo Yau playing the younger versions of the 3 main characters from the first series originally played by David Siu, Vincent Wan, and Paul Che – people are asking if David Siu is going to have a cameo in the sequel so he can reunite with his “brother” and “dad” from The Greed of Man, lol). Also, let’s not forget that the trend in HK nowadays is filming web series and there are plenty of production companies (both HK and Mainland) on that bandwagon. Stephen Shiu Jr’s company is just one of many that are going the web series route and no doubt they are going to get a run for their money due to the number of quality web dramas out there (I honestly feel that Fox Asia’s 2 web dramas alone already blow SSJ’s dramas out of the water).
@llwy12 I agree with you. Particularly with your second point. Do you know if ViuTV and Fantastic TV are producing any drama series? What about ATV? They said they would produce drama series again too. It seems like if there's any hope of watching good HK dramas these days you need to lean on web dramas and they are far and between. I've been allergic to TVB for at least the past 10 years. The only time I ever watch them is if there is a veteran actor that I want to see which averages out about 1 or 2 series per year (if even). With this series in mind, I do intend to watch it for Roger Kwok and Dominic Lam. My focus will be purely on their performance. If I take other aspects into consideration (plot, other actors, dialogue, etc.), it will leave me deeply disappointed. Tavia is too inconsistent. She hasn't had a good performance since she won her BA award. Frankie has always been a wooden actor. Nikki is average. Everyone else is average at best.
@littlefish LOL…that was my first thought as well! Either Jessica forgot about that series or she didn’t consider that portrayal a villain. In any case, I’ve also never been impressed with Jessica’s acting, as she does seem to only be able to play one type of character (the fierce / independent / strong female type as @m0m0 mentioned). No doubt that the typical characters she plays are very similar to her own personality in real life….
Expect to see more of these delays in the future, since TVB’s priority now is Mainland audiences. They had a similar problem with Deep in the Realm of Conscience back when that series premiered last month, but seemed to be able to overcome that one fairly quickly (if I remember correctly, the Mainland airing of the series was only delayed by a week or so, which is nothing considering Mainland audiences get to watch ahead anyway – while HK audiences have to wait to watch 1 episode at a time, Mainland audiences get to watch 5 to 10 episodes at one time). With that said though, you would think TVB learned their lesson already – honestly, it’s dumb to keep repeating the same mistake over and over again (though of course I’m not surprised since this is TVB after all). If they are serious about penetrating the Mainland market, they need to do a better job of planning ahead and making sure all licenses or whatnot are secured before they announce the airing date for the series. If the DITROC airing delay isn’t enough of an example of what poor planning can do, just look to their former rival ATV, who is still suffering from their earlier epic embarrassment of announcing a remake of a series that they didn’t even have the legal rights to (I’m still shaking my head at how stupid they were). And no, I am not looking forward to this series because I also liked the original At The Threshold of an Era and to me, this is yet another dumb effort on TVB’s part to piggy back off previous successes rather than come up with new content (and sorry but just comparing casts alone, this version is by far the cheap watered down version). Roger is one of my favorite actors and no doubt he will do an excellent job in here, but I still can’t bring myself to be excited or even remotely interested in this series for some reason….someone asked me if I’m perhaps allergic to TVB nowadays and I’m beginning to think yes I very well might be, lol.
@coralie Just a guess, but I think older men are a much easier target for these women. Less picky, more thirsty. Also, these gramps tend to have accumulated more status and power than their younger counterparts, due to their age and experience. And with one foot in the grave, these women probably figure they won't need to stick around for too long before reaping the benefits.
Looking forward to this, since I did enjoy its precedent. Never been too keen on Niki's acting, but I'm excited to see Tavia, Frankie, and Roger together. Also, I think Roxanne Tong has a lot of potential, so I'm happy to see her appearing in more dramas, despite having smaller roles.
@rika It’s definitely not TVB — Stephen Shiu Jr. launched his own OTT network earlier in the year so most likely this series will be for his hmvod channel. Besides, as far as I know, his company is still in dispute with TVB (the lawsuit is still pending in court I think) and so most of his artists are still banned from appearing on TVB productions (with the exception of Pakho Chau of course) so pretty sure there won’t be any type of crossover collaboration with TVB. With all that said though, remakes in general are always risky no matter which company tries to do it. I don’t watch Japanese series so not much comment on this one but I can understand why fans of the series would be concerned. For the sake of those fans, hopefully Stephen Shiu Jr doesn’t screw this up. As a point of reference (for those who might be concerned what this remake might look like)....SSJ’s company also did the movie version of HKTV series The Menu and while it wasn’t a remake but rather a continuation from the series, they actually did a surprisingly good job — but then again, the original scriptwriter, director/producer and majority cast and crew from the series were also involved with the movie, so that probably played a huge role in the movie turning out well. Maybe those concerned can check out their previous movie remakes / spinoffs of other TV series and see if any of those lived up to standard?
Wow! That is a huge age gap for two of them. I'm wondering if her father is younger or older than him. Best wishes to both of them! Someone told me once to marry for wealthy, but not healthy and then re-marry for healthy... Well, I'm not that type of person any way, so I married a regular, poor, wonderful and hard working guy. We are just living a normal life. We are happily married for many years now. I'm happy with my choice! :)
@theyenman Agreed, don't understand what all the fuss is about.
@littlefish The pairings are Roger and Tavia. Ben and Niki. Maybe a triangle love with Pakho? Frankie, Linda, and another girl. Tavia plays Roger’s love interest/sidekick whereas Niki is part of the company/problem.
@funnlim Stephen Shiu Jr is producing this, so right now it’s not a TVB production. It sounds like a web series and Shiu may produce it with some backing of Mainland money, which is the trend for Hong Kong dramas to make real money now.
@coralie i think her acting is actually quite one dimensional. always the strong-headed, independent kind of woman. maybe that's her in real life top
smart girl, wait for him to die to get all his mulas and find a younger guy.
So much judgement in these comments. At least she is not his mistress and the story is not reporting that she is breaking up a marriage or anything. To each their own.
@hetieshou 40 years difference...honestly I really can't find the word 'love' in this relationship. she is only 26, so maybe the relationship can last for a while since he will be hitting 70 soon.
@msxie0714 it's a win-win situation. he gets young grass to eat and she gets money to spend. why not? if she knows she isn't getting anywhere in the entertainment industry and rich guy comes along, no harm going for it. if he is a divorcee with kids, then problems will arise. of course having a younger boyfriend like Raymond Lam would be more exciting because the age difference is narrower.
no body beats Fukuyama..., tall and handsome. why they remake the drama with mid-age people. the original had a real young cast.
@hetieshou I mean there are always going to be gold-diggers. but she made it so obvious. at least gold-dig around her own age -_-. I actually anticipate this marriage lasting for at least a few years. either she'll wait till he dies so she can have most of his wealth or she'll stick around long enough to be compensated for her time with him.
I'm way more excited for the drama "Baby is Here" with Ali Lee than I am for this one. I wasn't a fan of the original (except for its themesong) and don't anticipate liking this one either (even tho I'm a fan of both Niki & Tavia & Roger.) It just doesn't relate to me on a personal level.
see like such a cliche plot? it looks like one of those you screw me, i got to kill you kinda of plot again. i guess it's really the mainlanders' taste these days driving the drama. it feels like a wong jing production minus the skimpyly dressed girls.
@littlefish Linda Chung only has a minor supporting role in the drama series as at that time she had to complete her filming obligatations with TVB, and she was residing in Canada after giving birth to her daughter Kelly. TVB filmed her "air time" in Canada, I remember reading an article which Linda mentioned she was most thankful for TVB in being so accommodating and flexible to film in Canada. I really really enjoyed At the Threshold of an Era , back then it was such a huge hit but yes your right on 36 episodes compared to 100 episodes. Interesting, I guess they know they could never match with the first series! I like Frankie Lam and Roger Kwok, would be interesting to see both of themi in this series! Hope they can get the licence approval soon!
@coralie That may be it! Maybe girls like them that did not make a name for themselves in this business cannot find any young rich guys so must take anyone that has money so they can enjoy a life of luxury. I find it sad that some women these days cannot make their own money but have to marry people who are so much older just because they have money. Will they leave them if they go bankrupt? Will he dump her after she gets old? It is sad that she is marrying for money and him for youth. I do not see this “marriage” being blissful, happy or lasting.
@jimmyszeto Even if he did not cheat, his behavior is just disgusting and greatly ruins his image.
@tiffany is Niki gonna be Roger’s love interest? I don’t like Niki enough if that’s the case :(
@tiffany heard that she got a villainous role in chinese series which she was praised by media.
The only thing I remember about the Japanese version was the second brother Fukuyama was so handsome !!!
These old guys and their little fresh meat.
I dunno, I don't really have any issues with these types of arrangements. Obviously, he's in it for her youth and looks, she's in it for his status and wealth. Both sides benefit from it, so why not? I mean, if you break marriage down to it's core, it's really a just a contract and agreement between two parties.
@funnlim Chilam's image is closer to Fukuyama Masaharu's role instead of Eguchi Yosuke's role but still, the cast is too old to play young adults. TVB's Galileo parody was soooooooooooooooooooo stupid. p.s. I pray hard that they won't start becoming funny and make a parody out of SPEC ~Keizoku~. I loved that weird drama to bits and Toda Erika x Kase Ryo rocked in it. xD
@funnlim Not sure if it's TVB since it wasn't mentioned in the article. Just assumed it would be TVB since they have a history of ripping off other people's works. Even the background music they used in dramas come from Japanese musicians like Kitaro, S.E.N.S. etc.
never been impressed by her acting range, or typecasted roles.
What's with girls these days? Can't find rich guys their own age or a little older to marry?
TVB fans with the expectation of mediocrity. LOL
@littlefish Jessica probably didn’t consider that a villain lol I read that her new character is a complete villain versus good-turned-bad or bad-turned-good types lol
@littlefish Linda is on the official poster. That’s just a promo pic. She’s playing a guest. Probably not gonna have a lot of promos with her. Yeah. Niki is on Roger’s side because her role is bigger than Tavia’s.
Wow. Definitely a sugar daddy!!
More than 20yrs? Didn’t she portrait the evil queen in that Qin period drama with Myolie Wu? Pretty sure that drama was less than 20yrs old!
Interesting, Linda is in this but is not on the poster. The poster made me think Tavia is paired with Frankie, when in fact she’s paired with Roger! And wow, only 36 episodes! Meanwhile all cdrama is like at least 45 episodes long! Will definitely check this one out xD
@rika Is this TVB?
TVB please don't spoil it for me. This is one of my most fave japanese drama and Fukuyama Masaharu was sublime in here. The casting of Chilam Cheung is already wrong for the role of the eldest hot headed brother and a 10 episode arc is now 22 episodes? I suppose combining even the sequel? Please don't. Go spoil another series. By the way the original is still great. Yes it is a bit dated looking but the story is good. The sequel however is not good. P/s each is too old for each role, And definitely story changed. Myolie as the fiancee means story has changed unless this series changes the 2nd daughter into the fiancee which also means a significant change. Oh I miss Masha. Gonna rewatch Galileo and listen to his album. Well TVB remade Galileo without admitting it and it was a total farce.
Heard a loud "KAA-CHIIIIINGGGGG!!!" xD
Then what? Are they gonna remake Long Vacation, Beach Boys, Tokyo Love Story, Koori no Sekai, Majo no Jouken, Asunaro Hakusho etc. as well? Seriously, TVB is sooooo lacking in the creativity corner that they should just fire everyone in their creative team and hire the Japanese/Korean instead. Then, just recruit some translators to translate those scripts to Chinese. :<
Pakho Chau (周柏豪) caught my attention. lol...not aware of original but the casts do seem a bit old if they are portraying teens n younger adults.
Under One Roof is one of the best Japanese Drama I have ever watched. Not sure if this remake will surpass the old one.
@jjwong for sure, there are more males cheating it seems in Hollywood than females. However, my point was if you are famous male, they will let it slide, the case of BP. You could argue KS is not famous enough and she’s famous for that cheating scandal so they will always bring it up every article. But to this day, there are still so many bitter netizens (one of them most likely Trump x”D) convince that she will always be a cheater, and as soon as she hook up with a new girl, news media would go click bait “KS cheat again!”. Meanwhile BP, who also cheated once, has the tag: “new fling”/“new gf” instead of say “BP cheated again!” I do agree that Hollywood/westerners don’t care much about cheating, if they do, we wouldn’t have that many TV show on cheating/mistresses xD and just look at their daytime daily drama (I’m looking at you, the bold and the beautiful >_>) xD slow news this week? Haven’t seen a new article for a good 7days at least now...
@littlefish Funny thing. I googled cheating famous celebs in Hollywood to see if I can find a better actress that may support your claim besides KS. 9 out of 10 are male whom cheated... idk whether female celebs are more faithful hence no news or media doesn't explode om cheating female as much, lol. Either way, I still think Hollywood and western audiences don't give a rat's butt about cheating. I'm not saying there's no double standards in H. There most definitely is; just not on cheating taboo because they don't care.
I'm not sure I agree with their philosophy of listening and not scolding. Though I see the need for understanding children, a parent is a parent, and not a friend. Children need rules and boundaries. As a parent I lay down the rules. I don't always explain why they can or can't do something and honestly it's not for them to understand, sometimes "no" is just "no".
@rika I see hahaha!
@hetieshou Edison didn’t do anything wrong though and didn’t even cheat..
@littlefish The first few minutes of the trailer somehow just emitted LoTR vibes to me until the point where I mentioned at 00:56, I almost shouted Legolas!!! I think it is the way they shot the cinematic scenes. xD
Just read on another site, on the paper, it’s said that the reason why GG was in the room was because WJ called GG to his room. After that, he then kissed the victim, then proceed to the bed. However, the victim claimed each of them held her legs, throw her into the bed while she struggled to free herself from them, hence the injury on her leg.
I lately saw the show produce 101 I really impress by HZT. I always thought he just can dance. But then I hear his song And lyrics. Wow 25 years And so talented!!! On the show he was very harsh to those girls. Esspecially when the episode where they are Only 55 left, those girls have to compete to get the song they want during a shuttle run. When he was explaining those girls aren’t quiet. You allready saw his face getting angry. Then when a girl fell, But the other still running And didn’t care about, he went furious. He Yell at them And ask them al those crying And care about each other are fake!! Then he tell his OWN story when he still was one of the EXO Member. That was really touching. You can see in his eyes impression, Thats all True And that he worked Verry hard to reach the level he is Now. Respect for him Wish him a happy holiday!! And looking forward to see his next projecten And hear his coming songs!!
Honestly! Who doesn’ have a past. We all humans, not saints. Anthony didn’t deny it. Thats already makenhim a good person.
@jjwong That is also what I wanted to know about that other guy. And I think if police dig deeper into the case, there might be even some dirtier evidence. As we all know, the entertainment industry is not clean. So, this might not be the first time they did it.
@rika how did you get the impression of TLotR? Just wondering :)
R.I.P. Jaynestars! Lol
@msxie0714 Don't forget Donut is another name. She's the wife of BabyJohn Choi.
So this is like a Chinese version of Lord of the Rings, huh? At 00:56, for a moment, I thought they are Legolas, Gimli and Boromir. ROFL!!!
@littlefish It was my colleague's theory on BP. Lol..haha as she was a super fan of BP and when he divorced JA for seductive AJ she was pissed like it was her hubby. hahah lol...So her thoughts were like what a shameless follower which she had a bit of point as there are people like that whatever race they are. JA was IT back then and went to the one who loves adopting kids all of a sudden just cuz they did a movie together? Sigh.... shameless. JLaw? Oh man, that one does have a bit of attitude but hey it seems she loves older men so you never know? ahhaa Lol...
@kidd I actually have not followed Taiwanese e news for a long time but he happened to be in a few Mainland Chinese series that I was watching so I saw how he looks now. I just got his EP too. He has matured a lot but still looks like his old self which I am glad as I hope he does not get plastic surgery in the future which may mess up his face.
@jjwong Some actually thought he was stuck up for having that stage name. Actually, if I remember correctly he did not pick that stage name but his former manager Andy did. But I agree it is an unusual stage name. He has a backstory behind it as I have said.
@sabrina The whole "no doesn't really mean no" is a slippery slope. 1) I believe for the sake of humanity, women need to stop doing it and men need to stop assuming it. "It" as in no means maybe or even yes BS. Then, maybe then, we can be real where a no is a no. 2) If "it" is used for foreplay, then it needs to be confirm. A simple affirmation "do you really mean no" or "I don't want se x" would suffice. Like you said, we (both women and men) need to be clear and careful because there are negative consequences on and for both sides. You could be right; she might be on the 3some all along but she chickened out the last minute. I honestly don't have a judgement for either side. I simply don't know or follow the case enough. I just wanted to comment that: flirtatious =/= free se x in a general sense. It's just not... PS Why is there no news on WJ guy btw? What's his lawyer is saying? Didn't GG originally claim he was only a bystander and watched? Also, couldn't they look at police report to see who reported the crime since the article claimed the husband called it in?
@wm2017 lol probably thats why he’s so lost currently. Currently the only IT girl is Jlaw but she’s full of attitude and possibly laugh at BP if he tries and possibly make fun of his fail attempts to flirt with her xD. Your theory of BP following the trend is quite interesting
@jjwong I agree with most of what you said. Many women are using the #metoo movement to their advantage, exploit it. A bad date/sex is not sexual assault. And I just want to say alittle about the part where a woman can play it through until they are going to have sex and she changed her mind. The guy may not really think her no means NO. You know like when he's going to penetrate her and she decided not to have sex. The guy probably think she's playing to get the mood on. As women, we should be really clear and careful of what we want and don't want and our own safety. The case in this article is probably like what you said that the woman wanted to have sex with that guy Gavin. But there are CCTV that showed she was kissing and hugging that WongJi guy too. I guess they did plan to have a 3some but something went wrong.
@littlefish Yup, double standards. :D Just like how a woman marries a guy 20 years older, it's normal. But if a guy is younger than the woman 10 years, it's shockingly eye opening. This Shirley girl, who knew what she was thinking when she moved on from a 10 year relationship to a guy who was supposedly rich but was not. I feel people were definitely harsh in labeling her as gold digging if she was she wouldn't be with a non-famous kind of poor child star who only has cameo roles when she was a lead at some point in her tvb life. I would say she made some very bad choices but definitely not a gold-digger. Ironically, a colleague once told me BP is a person who follows the trend. Just like how at one point Jennifer Aniston was the IT girl during the FRIENDS era and BP was right there. AJ has been an IT one in hollywood ever since the TOMB RAIDER or whatever movie and then somehow they were in MR&MRS and the rest if history. LOL...I kind of get she's saying you know like followed whatever it is at the moment kind of thing. Wonder which one he will be after next. haha lol...
@hetieshou I have not been following Taiwanese entertainment for quite sometime. So, my image of Prince (until this article) was still the boy with longish hair and some baby fat. :P
@wm2017 and this is why I’m saying for the girl, it’s harder to move on lol. Kristen steward did met Pattison while she was in a relationship with her first love. However, between feeling the sparks, realising your first love is not it, break it up and be with the guy you think you love is not really mean she did cheat on her first bf? There was no concrete evidences that she cheated on her first bf apart from the fact that she did move on quite fast? Second one was concrete, and even so, she was very very young, like less than 24? But everyone would always go “she’s always the cheater”, even with the press, not knowing the details of her relationship, so as soon as she hook up with a new person, and didn’t release a public statement she has ended her last relationship, they would go “KS cheated on her partner again!”, with brad Pitt, do you see anyone say that? They would go he has the famous whirlwind romance with AJ lol or BP has moved on to the new girl, the last one is just a fling, not BP cheated on his partner again! Anyway, same with Shirley, it has been what? 10yrs? During that time, did she cheat? Or have any bad press? No, not really, all the press has been about how hard she worked for her daughter, and if 10 yrs is not enough for people to move on, and have a different perspective, then I think it’s a bit harsh. After all, we only have like 10 10yrs the most lol.
@littlefish Brad Pitt forgiven? haha Lol...I am not sure about that but yes hollywood media seems like they don't care as much as they still give them so much attention like anything out of their lives is worth broadcasting. You are so right on the Angelina home wrecker thing. haha lol...That older ex hubby did break up w/the live in g/f Laura something before this seducer AJ took him away for good. I don't understand why people like her even bother getting married as it seemed she did it what twice and 3rd w/BP and it's divorce land why did they bother really. Kristen Stewart she has always been a CHEATER I think and now a lesbian. But if you ask me she's not really a lesbian if you go w both ways in such a short time, if anything shes bi". Before the twilight series hit big, she was dating this first love of hers or something for a long while and dumped the guy quickly for this on screen and became off screen w/RP. So that woman you can say once a cheater always a cheater? hhaha
@msxie0714 Almost as common as African-American first names: Jermajesty Jackson, Saint West, Sir Carter, Royal Reign.
Episode 6 is still setting the pieces in place. The women are getting more to do. Angelina's character is plotting something. That White Lotus? (I am terrible at translating) group is the most conspicuous secret society ever. The friendship between Selena and Elaine is intriguing. It's strange how Selena trusts her so much despite Elaine being the wife of her husband's worst enemy and former romantic link.
@jjwong nah, it’s the media lol and the comments from the news site (various news sites etc). Brad Pitt got forgiven for cheating, Angelina was the seducer, but she is like a well known home wrecker but because of her humanity work, they all kinda not talk bad about her. But everyone knows if she likes any man, there is no stopping her from getting them. She has never been a cheater (correct me if I’m wrong, I don’t follow her youth time), she has always been the wrecker/initiator though (so even though she’s at fault, her crime isn’t cheating if you know what I mean). And the highlight was when brad Pitt and Angelina were out for cheating, the whole world almost cheering for them (or the impression the media gave). I agree that in term of acting chops, Kristen can’t be compared with brad Pitt, maybe there is other better examples, but it seems to always be the case that if the woman cheats, she’s bad and should never be forgiven. But not the same as the man.
@littlefish Yes, Joel Chan. I don't think there's a need to 'forgive' in Hollywood though. Kristen is just a very limited actress so her chances to land a movie is much more rare than Brad. She's also a newb and less established than Brad. Maybe that gives an impression that he's forgiven and she's not? Also, Angelina was at fault too and her career wasn't impacted.
@hetieshou I don't think anyone was mocking his English name. People are saying it's a funny, unconventional name; even for a stage name. Cool backstory how he got it; similar to Babyjohn I guess. Either way, both names are still silly and 'rare'. It's like if you say a swear word unintentionally or out of reflex, it is still a swear word.
@jjwong who’s Joel? Joel chan? Guys always get to be forgiven faster than the girls. Look at Hollywood, brad Pitt is a star and Kristen Stewart is forever a cheater
@jimmyszeto Not necessarily as we can see from the whole Edison Chen and other incidents,if they can all be forgiven with time, I am sure Gavin will have another chance too. It will just take time. Time will erase or at least fade many things.
@llwy12 Well said and I do not condone cheating, but have a lot of respect for Anthony for being honest about it, facing it and taking responsibility for it unlike some people. I am sure many cheat in this business but they are just not caught yet or has had any kids to prove it. Yes, the aftermath and how it is handled is at times more important than the cheating itself. Jackie needs to learn a thing or 2 from Anthony. I feel bad for his son and what a horrible mother he has. Hope Anthony can protect his son and get him away from her. It seems like that mother was only using the son to get money from Anthony to support her new family. What kind of mother is that? She will pay for her bad deeds soon when karma strikes!
I wonder if these photos are photoshopped?
@coralie She has only had 1 kid so her body should not be that bad yet. I have 2 aunts that had 5-6 kids each and both have thin and good looking bodies.
@jjwong In Prince’s case, he has a story behind this stage name so I suggest everyone not mock him for it without knowing why.
I am still in shock that everyone here does not know Prince. I guess you all do not follow Taiwanese entertainment or watch Taiwanese series. Prince was in a few China series too. I saw them and enjoyed them all. Do you guys know Rainie Yang? He was once the rumored boyfriend of Rainie Yang and liked Rainie very much. I have a good feeling that they did try dating but it did not work out so they just remain friends. It is good if he is dating as everyone needs to move on. Rainie has moved on and is with Li Rong Hao now so hope Prince finds his happiness too if he is dating. But he is still very young so has plenty of time for that.
@kidd I am shocked that you did not recognize Prince. He may have matured but he did not change much in my opinion. He still looks the same overall to me. I am surprised that most people here do not know or recognize him.
@wm2017 I am guessing you and others here do not follow Taiwanese entertainment news if you do not recognize Wang Zi/Prince. He was once a member of the group Lolipop, but after that group disbanded, he formed the group JPM with one of the other former members of Lolipop and his little brother Mao Di. That group has disbanded too so he is acting in series now and just released his first EP as a solo artist. He was also in a few China series which I enjoyed.
@jimmyszeto I guess you and many here do not know why he choose the name Prince. He has that name because he played the role of a prince in a school play, so it became a nickname that stuck with him. Therefore, it was used as his stage name and the translation for his Chinese stage name, Wang Zi. It is not because he is shallow or anything like that. I guess people that do not know the background regarding his name automatically assume he is a stuck up person which he is not based on what I know about him. I know quite a bit about him and from what I know, he is very down to earth, is a kind person, a good big brother and a very filial son. He is also very emotional and kind hearted as he cries easily when touched. I remember when he saw his paternal grandma after a long time he broke down in tears as he loves and misses her so much. He also cried when he graduated from the show that was a stepping stone to his career. I remember seeing how he hugged all of his friends and cried as he was reluctant to leave them. Very touching....
Prince has matured. I didn't recognise him from the pictures here at all. I only realise he is Prince from Lolipop after googling him.
@msxie0714 The name 'Babyjohn' sounds silly to me too when I first heard it. But, after knowing the reason behind it, I kinda like it for this actor. The name has special meaning to Choi Hon Yik. It's the first stage character he played, a character name 'Baby John' from 'The West Side Story'.
The whole 'drama' is bizarre. The first impression was Gavin was the bystander and now WJ is bystander. With snippets of information, theories and assumptions abound. LOL.
@msxie0714 Happens in Hong Kong/Asia?
@passingby there’s a few more who’s shorter or about the same height than Alex. Eric Tsang, Wong Cho Lam? Jazz Lam and Tony Leung?
@tpmm Lol. I know right? Stormy? True? North? Chicago? Saint? I mean seriously? They should name all their kids with the letter K then it makes more sense? Because all their names are starting with the letter K accept the younger brother name after his dad.
I agree with jjwong!! Everybody makes mistakes and maybe one day her old news will subside and give her a chance to come back on the tube with tvb she not all that great in acting but she's a whole lot beta then some for the newbs there promoting nowadays
@jjwong Oh nevermind @jayne I tweeked a little and it posted :)
One, just because a woman is friendly and flirtatious, it doesn't mean she wants se x. If she leads you on and then says no thanks, she's a "female dog" but that doesn't mean you can force her into the act. Two, a woman should not call rape afterward because she regrets in the morning either. For those who do that, they're double "female dog" because one, you reap what you sow; and two, you do other women, real rape victims a disservice. Three, we're in this era of guilty until proven innocence is scary af. Social justice warriors ruin life, career and reputation before a trail is even given. Good thing they don't have power to actually punish someone in the name of laws. Phew. With that said, I still support the #metoo movement. Even if there are double-b in point two above and side effects of point three above, it's still a platform and venue for actual victims to speak out, get support and closures. Idk the statistic between real victims vs liars, even if it's just one real, I still think it's worth it. Because remember, the movement has no legality against/support. It's still must be presented, judged and sentenced in a court of law. Back to the article, refer to my point one above. Hypothetically, what if she wanted intercourse with GG and then WJ butted in for a 3some which made her have second thought but they forced her into anyways? It's still rape. That's pretty lame (her husband is jaded and wants to sue) and weak (she asked foe it) defense IMO. BTW, I used woman vs man as victim vs accused, respectively but it doesn't mean I don't believe the roles cannot be reversed.
@llwy12 You've my standing ovation. Unfortunate truth but very well said. @elizabeth lol! It didn't dawn in me until you said it.
@jimmyszeto @llwy12 @wm2017 i agree! It's stupid to make a mistake but that shouldn't define you. It's should be what action you take afterward. Be a real (wo)man, confront your mistake, write the wrong and live/learn! Total respect for AW even though he's opinionated, and has an in your face a-hole vibe. He's alright bd much better standup guy than a lot of publicity stain/neg free people.
@cutie777 IKR?!?!?! He's not even that big of a deal in the snall-screen entertainment world. SMH. Blind fans are scary... A pic of his deceased dad was probably out of respect. I've friends and long distance family members posted about my immediate family member's passing and asked for prayers, support and such. No one thought they were out for attention. They did it with good intentions. Only irrational people pend out of shape of little things like this. Disclaimer - I never saw her original quote but am 99% certain it wasn't like she laughed or gloated about his death...
So I THINK and hoping Francis only spoke rhetorically xD Maybe he should've used booger instead of crap... I've known parents with mentality that you tell your kid no once, but if they persist then let them learn first hand; as long as it's not life threatening of course. I know someone let their kid eats glue. He spat it out and never asked to try it ever again. Lol. They also said this taught the kid that when they say no to something, the kid is more willing to listen because of bad experience with the glue. Different strokes for different folks. I say as long as the parents are involved in the kid's life, it's a great positive step forward. Rock on, parents!
If we can forgive Joel, we can forgive Shirley. Though I never liked her acting, and it was super dumb of her to throw away her career over a careless mistakes and train wreck cover-ups. SMH. With that said, it's good that shes making an honest (loosely used and I'm giving her a benefit of a doubt here) to support herself and her daughter. If those are not overtly ps'ed, then she indeed looks great!!! She has this youthful face anyways. No change until she's like 60s. Good on her.
While I wait for my long winded comment to get approve, I've one question. Shouldn't this be debunk immediately whhen someone looks into police report whether the wife or the husband called or filed the report? Article claimed the defendant claimed the husband did... @jayne please review and publish my other comment. Let me know what is or if anything is inappropriate, I'll fix. TIA.
Ladies & Gents, this is how you play the media and pull on fans heartstrings. You tease and you give a peek-a-boo hint. Lol. Funny. Desperate. @tpmm Agree that western celebs named their kids unconventionally too. i.e. Blue Ivey, Apple, North, etc. According to a NPR article (a US news station), in the 'hipsters cities,' it's trending to also combining two spouses last names for a brand new last name. These are none celebs; just your average Joes like you and me. It's not just hyphenated, but totally new last name. Something like Smith + Davis = Davith. There's nothing legal to stop someone from doing that either. After all, "what's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." ;)
@jimmyszeto @llwy12 I honestly don't know nor don't think I've heard of a Wilfred's songs. If this was a publicity stunt, kudos to them for playing game. Hope it was worth it at the end. At least it didn't impact a 3rd party. Lol.
@littlefish @jimmyszeto Certain images that pertain or related to the show, I agree TVB can and should limit/control. For example, if you're spokeperson for healthy lifestyle, you shouldn't be piggy out or drink until you drop. These girls are on a cooking show that's not cooking focus but more of beauty, face on wall paper, se x sell kind of show; so what's wrong with a showing off their body? Mind you, I still think if it's their own social media, they can and should do what they want. It's dog eats dog world out there. Like Jimmy said, they gotta do what they gotta do (within legal limits ofc). And Jimmy, those names got dropped by TVB because it's TVB. They think they should/can dictate an artist's life. So if anyone they don't want to promote, they'll cut at the slightest neg. I still don't think the TVB station itself reputation got any damaged by any of those "scandals." Their artists had worse over the years, but TVB reputation is still intact. Anyways, my bottom line is that as an employee (artists in this case), you need to act professional in work environment or work related functions. After that 8-10 hours, your time is your time. It shouldn't be dictated because of a job. Again, unless these artists have a clause that signed their 24/7 of their lives over. And again, within limits of the law.
@jimmyszeto Well Katie price daughter is named princess n late MJ’s son is named prince as well. So it’s not just an Asian thing to have strange names. Not to mention Kardashian’s kids with stupid name like storm...
@msxie0714 Who is named Cinderella? I hope that girl wont make it big to avoid shaming herself with that name. Yeah, baby John is pretty embarrassing. I think he changed his name though
@mangotango a bit of an assumption that "strong evidence of assault" was why the police decided to press charges. plenty of cases have gone to trial with very weak evidence, and the accused found to be innocent later. even if evidence was extremely weak, it would be likely the police would move to prosecute to prevent him from leaving the country.
These first 5 episodes were certainly not lacking in drama. It's not draggy, but it is quite heavy. The acting has been engaging and the storyline complex. The scenery is beautiful and the production looks grand. The snow effect is consistent with timeline continuity, and although it adds a lovely moodiness, it is sometimes distracting. I am surprised that they actually have enough extras to make the imperial court look more than just a handful of officials. They need more eunuchs, maids and guards though. Ruco's Heshen is arrogant and intelligently confident (actually over-confident). The dialogue repeats that he is greedy, but I wish that there were more scenes showing his greed. On Wikipedia, his list of riches is jaw-dropping and should be reflected in the show. I like his friendship chemistry with the Qianlong Emperor. I can feel why the emperor gravitates towards him because Heshen is charismatic, intuitive and loyal to him. Going forward, I hope there will be more for Ruco to do than smirking triumphantly. Although, the outcome was already known, the coffin scene was tense and Ruco and KK were great. Ruco literally only had his eyes to express his pain. More drama like that, please. TVB admits it is going to take some creative license when it had Jiaqing say, "I am going to make sure history knows Heshen is the most terrible person". So Heshen's actions are going to be because he was pushed to fight back. Well, fine, at least have him go down as ruthless, conniving badass. Shaun Tam is fresh and has been excellent. He's outwardly righteous and expresses concern for his people, but is also jealous and vengeful. He has had the opportunity to show a range of emotions and has been very effective (except some of his anger expressions are cartoonish). He rightfully hates Heshen. KK's emperor is kind to a fault. He knew that Heshen was corrupt but ignored it. I understand he forgives his son because he wants him stronger but wouldn't he worry that Jiaqing may show the same hatred to any who question him in the future? Joel Chan always brightens the screen. He and Ruco are always great together whether as friends or adversaries. I don't know how his character will turn out but I look forward to finding out. The drama excels at grey characters and besides Heshen's son, there are no truly "good" people. I guess that is reflective of real life. It may be confusing to some viewers because you don't know who to root for, but I like being able to cheer for both sides. Although, I am typically a romantic sap, I am glad romance is not a focus. Typically, Ruco's characters always love first or love more. He's great at expressing that tortured, selfless love, but I was getting tired of watching him be a love-sick puppy. This time, he has 4+ women. With my luck, the writers will make him mopey in love 4 times. Elaine, Selena, and Natalie play their roles well enough but they don't have much to work with yet. Actually, in this drama, it should be that way and the focus should remain on the male characters. Anyways, I am cautiously optimistic for this drama.
@jimmyszeto Fish, Fruit, Jam, Coffee, Seven, Caesar, Rainbow, Beaver, Evergreen, Money, Cinderella, Angelababy, Babyjohn are just a few of the dopey names adopted by Chinese-speaking show-biz people and ordinary citizens. I bet other Asians are snickering at the inclination of Chinese taking so-called 'western' names.
@m0m0 in the meantime, Eric Tsang is still free and loose.
@mangotango the above article implies she was the aggressor who was 'highly interested' in Gao.
@tsukki Well done for signing up just to troll....
@msxie0714 Yes indeed. The movie LIPSTICK is more than 30 years ago. LOL.
@passingby He has done well to be a swimmer considering his height. I think Tony Leung is shorter though. To overcome the negativity in showbiz the shorter guys need to be enormously talented (Tony Leung) or produce plain silly slapstick comedy (Wong Cho Lam). This is the same with plump actors as well. Appearance is most valued asset by fans especially in Asia unfortunately.......
@msxie0714 @rika Yes. I predict a young female to name herself Princess in the near future and become a superstar. These names standout because they are so silly which gives them a huge advantage. If Babyjohn was actually tall and handsome he would be a phenomenon....
@m0m0 why you guys assuming is infidelity? Maybe he is in an open relationship @jimmyszeto Any woman that scream rape true or not as long as she accuse him of it they are treating him as a criminal until they are proven innocent even than people will still assume he is still guilty. People has no tolerance for sexual assault
@m0m0 I know there're shorter guys but he's gotta be one of the shortest guys in showbiz lol. He looked so awkward acting as Linda Chung's love interest in that Liza Wang drama.
@mangotango women's rights weren't strong until recent years in USA, otherwise sexually harassed women wouldn't have waited decades to report their victimization by powerful men.
@sugarcane And white people don't age well, if we were to judge westerners by Asian standards.
@jimmyszeto weird English names are common in Chinese-speaking regions like HK, Taiwan, Malaysia, S'pore and China.
@jimmyszeto To call oneself "Prince" sounds a bit narcissist, no?
Not allowed to live near airports.
Latest report that Gsvin is granted bail with deposit of 3M$ (Aussie dollars?). Conditions appear to include wearing electronic trackers, wifey and daughter's passport taken by police, report to police station twice a day, I think they are allowed to live or go near airport too.
Who is the dude, Wang Jing? Always about Gavin.
How come my comment was mark as SPAM and removed after I edited it? I tried to post it again like 2 times after it said marked as SPAM, but it was no where in here. -.-
So William’s mom gave an interview to the media and said stuff which Anthony responded to afterwards. Looks like the woman got pissed off because Anthony found out that all the money he’s been giving her to support their son she has actually been setting aside at least half of it for her own family (she’s remarried)....so instead of giving the money to her directly like he had been doing, he’s giving the money to his son directly (which makes sense since his son is an adult now and can manage his own affairs). This apparently pissed the mom off and so she went to the media in attempts to dish the dirt on Anthony. Anthony in response basically doesn’t care that she went to the media, but the thing he IS pissed about is the fact that the mom Joyce had actually been abusing William all these years. He said that after he started giving money to William directly, Joyce kicked William out of the house and won’t let him go back. Also, apparently she once beat William to the point that his face was almost unrecognizable. Anthony is pissed and basically said he is willing to take all the blame, Joyce can hate him as much as she wants to, but William is innocent and to stop treating him so cruelly. What a markedly different response from the other famous celebrity who cheated and had an illegitimate child! Again, I don’t condone cheating however I’m also not naive enough to believe that celebrities don’t do it because obviously it’s common in the industry (like @jimmyszeto said, Anthony certainly isn’t the only one). However in my book, how the aftermath is handled sometimes matters more than the cheating itself. Anthony was wrong to have the affair, but he did the right thing afterward with taking up responsibility as a father and up to recently, remaining friendly with the mother for his son's sake (and now it’s been revealed he was supporting his wife’s new family all these years too!). JC needs to learn from Anthony — if he isn’t able to take responsibility like Anthony did, he honestly needs to keep his you know what in his pants....
@passingby my friend went to u w/ him and said he's pretty short. there are shorter boys though
@sugarcane well, those aren't exactly very nice looking.
@jimmyszeto walk out free beats a time in jail for rape.
@wm2017 The only money this Gav guy can make from showbiz now is if a production company offers to buy the rights to make his story into a movie. Apart from that he's done for good...
@m0m0 almost every guy is taller than shortie Alex .
Geez... I'm 40 + had a child.. can't look like that anymore!!!
She looks like Ali Li in the 2nd last pic. They look almost identical from that side profile angle. They could perhaps pass as twins.
@m0m0 I think so too. Have no clue who this guy is but looks young & cute what's not to like? haha :D I never really like Alex Fong, he looks cute too in a way but he's more like a smooth flirter who never seems to grow up? lol...
@llwy12 Exactly what I was thinking too. NO way we are saying he's a good man for supporting his illegitimate son but at least he took the responsibility for an innocent child. A certain someone who has so much money and yet never admits to that daughter as his is scum thru and thru. No matter how much money he makes how popular he is in both Asia/Hollywood, he's still the lowest in my book.
@jimmyszeto lol...haha I mean based on his looks and I don't follow on a lot of China celebs news but we hardly hear negative news about the guy so I was just thinking he probably got framed like in a TV drama? That's why I say 50/50 but w/now w/DNA and such...sigh...he's dead meat no matter what. Career is probably down the drain whether he is found guilty or innocent. I didn't know the woman is married? Lord, what a real life complicated drama.
@coralie I agree. I think her biggest mistake was NOT living w/a dude for 10 years but living together w/his whole family I still found that to be miraculously absurb. haha LOL...They are not exactly rich too imagine the # of ppl she had to deal with daily during those years. What was she thinking? Sigh....
@anon Perhaps not according to western standards, lol.
Women's rights are stronger in western countries. If this happened in China or even Asia, all fingers will point to the woman. Consent of sex and being friendly with the accused are two different issues. The most damning evidence are the bruises on the woman's thighs and feet as reported earlier (if the report is true). Yes, I agree that the police surely will not detain them if there are no strong evidence of assault so I assume the bruises are true unless they blamed self infliction. As a woman, I find the constant use of 'consensus' in these type of cases an insult to my privacy and right as a woman. Women are blamed to invite rape because of their dressing, the jobs etc etc. Just because one is prostitute does it mean she has no right to reject a client? Just because one likes to wear sexy clothes does it mean she has no right to say no to men? I remember watching this movie, LIPSTICK many years ago where a model was raped and stalked by her younger sister's psycho teacher. She lost the case because the defendant claimed she was friendly to the psycho and she was a bikini model. The ending ... the psycho teacher raped her younger sister to take it out on her. She snapped and shot the psycho.
@m0m0 That's because her boobs are not naturally like that. She's had work done. It was known when she did a similar bikini photoshoot about 10 years ago. She was a spokesperson for promoting treatments to make your boobs bigger. Also, if you watch her in when she was competing for the miss hk pageant, her chest was quite flat then. She also got a lot of invites to do bikini fashion shows after she made her boobs bigger.
@anon I agree, but unfortunately it looks like that’s the way things are going to be. Nowadays, everything is all about the Mainland China market – that’s where everyone’s attention has been focused the last decade or so and it will continue to be a focus in the years to come. Even Hollywood is looking to Mainland China more and more now (since China has surpassed the U.S. as the #1 movie market in the world in terms of box office receipts). In comparisons, the HK market is small potatoes and so if it dies out, no one is really going to care except us hardcore HK entertainment fans (and of course we are all “small fish” in the grand scheme of things so our opinion doesn’t count for much). Yes, TVB is partly to blame and the movie industry itself also should share in that (though admittedly there ARE some in the industry who play an active role in developing fresh blood, it’s just that their effort is dwarfed by the majority in the industry who don’t bother), but lack of government support also plays a role. It’s unfortunate but HK as a society is also in shambles with things getting worse daily – when the city itself is already deteriorating and slowly dying off, the least of their concerns would be to save the entertainment industry. Basically, for all intents and purposes, there’s no need to wait for drastic changes because the HK industry is pretty much ALREADY dead….
@anon for her size that's pretty busty. you can't compare w/ the super busty ones b/c they generally have bigger arms and legs. look at how skinny her arms and waist are. it's all porportional
@jimmyszeto Yes true, but at least Anthony did take responsibility for his actions and not only provides financially for his son but actually meets up with him, integrated him into his legitimate family, and does everything possible to fulfill his obligations as a father. Unlike a certain someone who refuses to even admit his illegitimate daughter exists let alone provide for her financially or even spend time with her. I don’t condone cheating of course, but the fact that Anthony took responsibility for his actions and did not try to sweep it under the rug or pretend it never happened speaks volumes and in my book, to be quite honest, makes it easier to forgive him for that transgression...as far as I’m concerned, Anthony’s image/reputation is still intact.
@elizabeth ^ is to point at your remark. I'm surprised that this caused confusion because it's a pretty common way to refer to a prior post in forums.
@littlefish Nah, ^ is basically to point at her remark.
This is busty? Lol
@llwy12 Based on the way they answered the questions from the press it looked like they wanted people to suspect they had broken up but didn't want to confirm they broke up because that would be outright lying. Joey is probably doing all she can to help Wilfred narrow the wealth and popularity gap. Let's just say Wilfred won't be the next Nick Cheung or Max Zhang anytime soon.....
Anthony won't be the only one. There will be plenty who have committed the same error but kept it hidden to protect image.
@m0m0 I wouldn't say he was unlucky. If he there was no doubt it was just infidelity he would have walked free by now. I think he would shake your hands off if you offered him a ruined career and marriage now....
if sex was consensual then worst is just infidelity? but then, guy's career is still ruined and so would his marriage. so unlucky, out of all the men in show biz who cheated on their wives, he's having run-ins with western law....
woah,i wished i have this body at any age. so lucky, skinny and busty
smart move, younger.taller and more handsome
@wm2017 How can it be 50/50? Cannot be arrested, charged and then rejected bail on a 50/50. They must have significant evidence. Only way out is that it was all done with consent but it's likely there will be enough injuries to disprove this theory...
Prince? What a name! This is brilliant. What a breakthrough!
It's fair enough that she made mistakes by cheating but she went on a lying streak afterwards which makes her personality more than questionable...
Maybe I’m a bit more forgiving, but i treat her past scandals as mistakes, we are all human, we allowed to make mistakes and grow up from it. She took great care of her daughter, and for that, she has my respects. And she hasn’t really done anything else that make me dislike her. About the photos, sure it shows off her great body, but she didn’t do sexy poses, so I think she is thinking of her daughter. Last thing, wow I can’t believe she’s 40! She and Ruby is only 2 yrs apart! (Maybe because Ruby has been in the entertainment industry for so long, I felt like Ruby is a lot older lol)
@mangotango it does sound bad :( I just hope that if they did do it, they are not getting away with it.
@jayne haha, his prominent expression possibly smug xD oh, not sure if it is, but I think the third song in the trailer is Zach Hemsey’s “see what I’ve become”. I hope they do the music the right way and not copying it like Korean drama lol (goblin and their theme song is so much like Alan walker’s song). Anyway, Zach hemsey’s music is used by Hollywood for the movie trailers, as it really grabs you and works very well with fast pace action scenes (since trailer tends to run so fast). If you guys haven’t heard Zach Hemsey, you should check him out, his music is what you called “music that heighten the atmosphere”. I’m not too concern about his acting, since it seems there are a lot of support couples/side stories, and their love stories will be quite interesting (angst and what’s not but mostly because the veterans are handling those complex emotions) As long as the story is good, I will be watching, but we will have to wait for the first few episodes before we can truly judge how good it is :) I also already know who he will end up with lol. And like usual, I will possibly shipping him with second leads lawl!
Well she's moving on. She did request to break up herself. Can't really say it's not unexpected. Good looking guy though!
A skinny lady with huge bewbs. Some women have all the body luck. I think she should've hired a woman to do this shoot though. She looks a little uncomfortable here or maybe the guy is just a bad photographer. Didn't capture her in her most mature and shekshi moments. I don't know how to feel about Shirley and her scandal. A ten year relationship that she gave up...I don't think for money because Gregory had no money and she didn't mind. Maybe she was missing something in that relationship that she got on a whim from the baby daddy. Life's complicated
Hhhmm, no doubt about it. Shirley looks great!! Good for her, if she's happy to take these photos and has no problems with her daughter seeing them as she gets older. That's her choice. Personally, I lack a bit of respect for her. I question her character and morals. She was in a very long term relationship with a partner, who she cheated on and then had a child with another man. The father of her child turned out to be a questionable character and they separated. She's been a single mother for some time, not sure if she is coupled now. I understand that raising a child is expensive and we need to work and in this case, the money is going to charity. I wonder as a parent, is this the sort of example I would like to set for my daughter? Would I be happy for her or her friends to see these pictures of me? I personally would prefer to be fully clothed and working really hard and hopefully teaching her some good morals.
LOL.. Now they imply woman was willing and hubbie was angry and forced wifey to report to police.
@jayne That is what the defence is trying to do when they asked for the karoke club CCTV footage. It may work in China but I think it may be more difficult in Australia. Even wives/girlfriends have the right to reject sex if they do not feel like it in some countries. The DNA found in semen and bruises on the girl's legs point to some form of resistance (unless defence can prove the lady loves rough play). And I do not think entering the hotel room without resistance means consent of sex. They may be adjourning to the room to discuss work? Unless CCTV shows they can't wait to take out their clothes enroute to hotel room! All in, it does look bad for Gavin. Feel sorry for his family. China and Australia do not have extradition agreement hence Australia is unlikely to release him unless the judiciary is confident Gavin will turn up for hearing. This being a high profile case is not working in Gavin's favour. All eyes will be on the case whether any form of fairness is applied despite his celeb's background.
@wm2017 If the defense lawyers can prove the sex was consensual, Gao Gavin can still be released. But his career is already ruined.
Wow!! This is like a TV drama. Thought this guy can somehow be 50/50 innocent? I guess not.
@littlefish "Ever Night" has good cinematography and looks epic. However, Arthur Chen, didn't seem to have much expression in his scenes. I think the good choice in music heightened the atmosphere for the drama; would like to see trailer featuring actual dialogue.
Twice after stumbling Edwin and Annie manages to coincidentally lock lips together. Twice a Stephen partner suffers miscarriage. The mother and Stephen has distraught scenes afterwards. TVB lazy writings at its best.......
@llwy12 haha yea, for sure, a lot of time, children would not listen until they try for themselves. But poop xD just no lawl. Fire example, all parents will do that like you said. But poop xD? I don’t think any can lawl. Though if you find out too late, that ship has set sailed, so handle Francis’s way will be best
@jjwong @jimmyszeto I’m still of the opinion that it was a publicity stunt. I don’t know the numbers for Wilfred’s concert but for sure there was some impact as it made people aware of his concert who otherwise probably would not have known (since, well, let’s face it, he’s just not popular so highly doubt most people who wasn’t already a fan would seek out his concert information on their own). Speaking from personal experience, I actually didn’t know about his concert until those breakup rumors started surfacing and the media of course started focusing their attention on it. Some media outlets even printed the seating chart for his concert and did a mini-analysis of sorts showing the different tier tickets and how many were being sold. Supplemented with all that were various interviews with both Joey and Wilfred, with Wilfred’s response consistently being along the lines of not wanting to respond because he wanted to focus his efforts on his concert instead (basically constant mention of “his concert”). I don’t think it would be a stretch to say that if it weren’t for those rumors, pretty sure the media wouldn’t have given him the time of day….
@wm2017 @coralie I wouldn’t be surprised if Francis was speaking from experience. I remember a few years back when he did his Telling Maria interview, he had talked about his relationship with his son and parenting methods in his family and it WAS a bit on the unconventional side. Like when his son was curious about fire and tried to play with matches/lighter – Francis told him not to do that but his son wouldn’t listen, so instead of yelling at him and trying to get him to listen, he took his son’s finger and stuck it close enough to the flame (can’t teme if it was a match or a lighter) to be uncomfortable (without the flame actually touching the flesh)….of course his son pulled his finger away and since then, never tried to play with matches/fire again. So yea, if it were any other father, then the dog poop thing would indeed be a weird analogy, but with Francis, let’s just say I would believe it if it ended up being from his personal experience, lol…
he's pretty cute, i can see why he's popular
@m0m0 perhaps he should undergo facial reconstruction to suit certain fan expectations of a typical pretty boy?
@coralie he is 13 months atm :) Yea, I agree. At one stage, you need to make sure you be the parents first and foremost. It would be great that you can be a friend to your child, but not all child is the same. And not all moments are easy. Ever since I got pregnant, i have come to accept that I might be hated by my child as long as he grows up to be a decent human being
@mangotango yea, plus he has the face and the height! Anyway, the trailer looks very very good. I’m actually interested in seeing this!
@coralie LOL. My first reaction is to take the damn * away and clean up.
With a famous father, I am sure he will be given many opportunities. Wow only 18yo and on the list join the ranks of Luhan, Kris Wu etc young rich successful celebs.
@coralie That is indeed weirdest analogy I have ever heard in disciplining children. I remember my godparents used to tell me that they let their two children try super sour green lemon just so they know what is good bad or what they like or dislike or just simple differences of things. But dog poop?? AWWWWW...Gross!! You don't need to try drugs to know that they are not good for you do you? lol...
i think marrying for money is always the smarter one
He is actually very lucky indeed as she's cute, young & rich? Come on, who's the luckier one? :D
@littlefish how old is your bb? I'm just thinking any parent would be so mad that their kid went and ate poop hahhahaa Idk if I agree with his philosophy. Experiments and real life has shown that being a parent is more important than being a friend. Maybe when the kids are grown then a friendship can be developed, but parenting should always come first
Okay so fans think she dated him for more attention? What about him? Since it says she’s so rich so does that mean he dated her because she’s got the money? Seriously I don’t know what fans think sometimes.
@coralie lol I know... I don’t think I can do that! My first reaction: omg, get the wet wipe and get the poop off my baby lol! Then I will get angry because 1 - wonder if my child will get sick, 2 - can’t believe I let it happen! Then repeat no.1 lol! Then stay in that loop for a good 5mins until someone assured me my child will be fine -.- Though the difference is his child can talk, mine can’t yet >_> so all his advice is no good lawl
"For example, if your son finds and picks up dog poop to eat, it’s very funny to be honest, but you shouldn’t yell at them – you need to find out how they felt about it, or what it tastes like and then tell them that it’s wrong.” HAHAHAA wut?! I hope not speaking from experience... XD
@elizabeth she agreed with you :) ^ is ^_^ I think. So happy smile + this = same comment she would make
Don't understand your reply.
never tired of seeing Louis Koo's movies, hehe
He's not handsome compare to others but in a way he is cute. I like him
@m0m0 I thought so too until I watch ‘because of you’. He was very charismatic and has a really nice smile. He was very good,funny, loyal and furiously protective of his gf in the drama. He really grew on me. I think he’s really adorable. Give that drama a try.
@elizabeth ^ THIS.
@msxie0714 Deng Lun may not look as handsome as some other actors, but he is very likeable. People often say beauty (in this case, it’s handsomeness) is in the eye of the beholder. :) He does have a great smile though!
@cassiemissy Uhm I doubt it lol. I’m gonna say the most they possibly will only have like 10 or less fighting scenes. Put it this way, the description for the main male lead is very good at martial art but he prefers to use his brain rather than fighting, so it won’t be a lot lol. Anyway, I’ve been reading the fans’ comments, many praised it for being really good. There are bad press about it, for plagiarised the plot lines though. So I think if you are bored, you will possibly enjoy this. But if you look for great story, possibly not exactly from this drama. I haven’t watched it, but just reading about it does give me a bad impression, the bath fighting scene - really guys? You guys are getting accused of copying princess agent and you have to do the infamous bath fighting scene from PA??? But hey, by the time it finishes, my expectations might be so low, I will enjoy it! However I can say for sure it is no 3l3w. Because 3l3w grabbed me from that jump, not many drama can pique your interest like that!
@m0m0 He may not look as handsome as some other actors, but he is very likeable. People often say beauty (in this case, it's handsomeness) is in the eye of the beholder. :) He does have a great smile though!
Have a long peaceful RR Huang Zitao, rest your mind and body and comeback stronger than ever, we will miss u for now, happy trails.
It will be a dream come true, if Dilireba will co star with Zitao when he comes back from his hiatus, I think they will be a perfect couple for Zitao and Dilireba, they are about the same age and of course a romance drama will suit them best!
@kolo I don't have a solution. Just pointing out the repetitiveness of the same cycle of actors. On one hand, TVB is partially to blame for the lack of quality actors in their development cycle. On the other, the movie industry itself doesn't do enough to develop fresh blood on their own. They rather stick to the same batch of actors in every movie. I agree with you that the HK movie industry will die soon if no drastic changes are made.
@kolo If they bring in young Chinese actors to dominate the HK movie industry, I would rather continue see these veterans...
@littlefish Good luck lol. I believe accepting a criticism is a very important attribute for improvement.Yeh. I wouldn’t be pleased if someone said I had a fat baby. I just imagine an overweight, unhealthy child from that description....
it's nice to be able to walk away from all the glory and fame to be just nobody for a while. one can only come back stronger.
@anon who do you want to see then? all the big guns are seniors that already dominated the hk movie industry for decades now. there are just no suitable successors for them. they all used to come from tvb but since the lack of talented actors with star power, tvb is no more a breed room for stars. its sad but the hk movie industry will have the same fate as the the hk music industry if no new talented stars emerge.
@jimmyszeto lol, just saying xD I know Asian culture thinks fat is healthy, however, saying chubby and pair it with healthy will sound nicer (especially when the couple took a while to get there) :) I’m prepared! Dw xD
@littlefish There’s that hint of criticism again. Beware of a venomous backlash haha
@lia00027 Uhm, have you seen her drama? She doesn’t look like the type to even use Botox, you can see the wrinkles in certain normal area unlike a lot of the male stars who swore up and down they don’t use Botox and their crying face is that of a minted paper! To me, she’s younger than her age (because I’m terrible at guessing age lol). To my partner, she looks her age, so comments like ageless beauty should be taken with a grain of salt instead of using it to attack the fans or the celebrity :)
@jjwong I think each show has their code of conducts, like master chef: contestants can’t talk to other about the result before it finishes air ring, bring their phone into the house, use social media or accept job before the show over, keeping certain images, etc. (there was a famous dismissal of a master chef contestant before, can’t remember for what though) so yea, I think TVB has every rights to ask the girls to keep certain images.
@bubbletea can I point out you should not call their baby fat :( like you end it with “finally they have a fat baby”. And that just doesn’t sound nice at all. /that’s all (using this to say even if you attack me, I’m not gonna say anything further) :)
@m0m0 not in my eyes either but he’s the upcoming star with quite a few big dramas :(
@jjwong They don’t need to directly tie themselves to the station. To achieve more subscribers and likes these women will continue to strip until they make a name for themselves. It’s not their fault really because they have no better strategy to get themselves noticed. Viewers will automatically link them to TVB after spotting them onscreen. The cases you mentioned yes did affect TVB which is why they got rid of Coffee. Joel showed remorse and was forgiven by friends so it was good for TVB’s image to take him back. Eric not TVB only. There are plenty of others who drink drivers, drug offences, cheats, molesters which TVB got rid. So let’s say these girls Phoebe, Candyfloss, Baby, Apple or whatever their names are begin a strip battle on social media it will ruin TVB’s clean image they are trying to potrat on the ‘cooking beauties’ show. One minute the girls are giggling, pretending to be cuties. Next thing they are posing in their underwear in a full on battle....
@anon Tired of seeing Andy attempting action. Tired of them making sequels when the storyline if not related to original....
Having sex and being a player are two different things. Good luck to him. Syphilis infections are on the rise.
I think like all people, celebrities can burn from the stress and workload. They may make a lot of money but they are only human and need some alone time away from fans and papparazzi. Hope he takes a trip overseas and finds some peace.
Wow! Two Yeung Gors!
They left out Andy and Sammi! So happy when they got back together.
Looks aside, his music is junk, so is 99% of all modern artists that consider themselves "rappers". Auto-tune and their English illiteracy killed rap. Mainstream rap died post-2000.
@msxie0714 Looks can be the primary criteria for ANY age group. This cannot be truer than idols in Korea and Japan. They have fans from all age groups that worship them like gods. The keyword here is they are IDOLS. They were commercially manufactured entirely based on looks to attract an audience. Everything else is secondary.
@anon on another thread, Deng Lun was criticized by a blogger for not being handsome. Looks are the primary criteria for most young and immature fans.
Tired of seeing the SAME actors in every HK movie. Don't get me wrong. They are great actors but seeing the same familiar faces over and over again in every HK movie is boring.
@windy He should stick to modeling and variety shows. Same with Angelababy. Both have a blindly dedicated fan base quick to defendbad acting skills on the basis of how hard their idols work!
@terrycrews19 my mistake...it's NBA.
@jimmyszeto i I disagree. A station's reputation should based on the quality programs, drama, and contents they themselves push out. Unless the artists explicitly tie their social media or self-promo to the station, it should be individuals freedom to do what they have to do (within the laws) for popularity. Also unless the artists signed a contract that say everything they do, to include their free time and all their aspects of life have to be approved or to a certain guidelines, then a memo restricted their free will on their free time is unnecessary and shouldn't be allowed. Did TVB look bad with Coffee Lam "bathroom escapade" scandal? Was TVB reputation damage when Joel Chan openly cheated and went for the heiress over his long time gf? Did anyone blame TVB when metoo named Eric Tsang?
@msxie0714 not really. He does have a face and height required for model. As for his voice, he's an idol, not a singer. Back then he was part of EXO, people said that he had the second worst voice in the group (while the worst -with almost no line in their songs- is one of the most popular member than the one with the best voice). A few weeks ago, SK netizens critiqued a girl idol group when they sang live. Their fans came to defense, mostly with saying: 'they're an idol, not a singer' or 'I prefer pretty girl with bad voice than ugly girl with good voice, at least I can enjoy their visual on stage'
the male lead is not handsome wo~
@jjwong I think it is a good idea for TV stations to set guidelines for social media and YouTube content. Its such a battle to impress and gain awareness. It’s fair enough if a celebrity can produce creative content to gain fans but if the women are trying to outdo each other by stripping more and more then it just damages the station’s reputation..
Aren't Lokiyii and Kiwi just blindly lied? L pic above is clearly a photoshoot. K pic is erotic-charge. If TVB did put out a memo to ban sexy and bikini photoshoot, what's "sexy?" Wouldn't it be hypocritical if they, TVB, doesn't stop taking, producing and publishing bikini and sexy pictures themselves too?
Time away. Hope he have a good rest. Do not need another Kimmy.
@lia00027 Cannot understand what threads you are talking about. Definitely a hater. LOL. No idea how your [email protected] looks like. Pretty? ;-)
Srly, being tall is a sure-win criteria for being an idol??? =o He does have that Kpop and feminine face and look, which all Kpop become after, even during their Kpop training.
@bubbletea Honestly if I was to be malicious or personally attack you, I would've said a pretentious prick. "That letter will touch anyone's heart, whether you are male or female. You actually felt their pain, then their joy and love while reading Yikuan’s touching letter" is pretentious; hence you sound pretentious. You attempted "to impress by affecting greater importance than is (as in the letter) actually possessed." Because I don't agree with your post, it doesn't mean I'm not a "straight shooter who speak my mind and who keeps things real." I did just that - in my mind you sound pretentious and kept it real by saying what's in my mind. I meant to leave it be already but @jayne is invovled so I decided to indulge. I'll follow her wish and really/finally end here.
@bubbletea Not saying what he said was correct but there are better ways to respond than outright name calling. I didn’t get involved. I waited till your disagreement with jjwong was over. Just explaining to you since you thought being told off was unjust but since you have proven unable to accept any minuscule of criticism, I shouldn’t have bothered.
@jimmyszeto since you took on the job of site police and therapist, what was so pretentious of my first comment. How would you like it if that was your comment and someone said you sound pre tree entious, that's all? I chose to respond to someone calling me named without just cause. Pretentious I am not. Acid tongue and sarcastic yes, but only when pushed and provoked. You have to be involved in everything. You can't let people disagree or argue without getting involved, whether you are wanted or not.
@m0m0 Think they are forced to distinguish themselves by posting sexy pics because there are dozens of them, it is difficult to stand out. I wouldn’t be able to tell who is who and which one is Ruco’s girlfriend amongst the enormous group of girls. Now this tactic is banned....
@bubbletea Anyway I don’t have a problem you. I’m just explaining because you reacted as it was unfair when Jayne scolded you. jjwong made a negative comment and then you flew in with insults, he gave up. It is what it is.....
@bubbletea I didn’t say you was attacking me. I was talking about @Jjwong’s comment and your response all along. He/she made a comment about your ‘post’ but you mind remarks of him as a person. There is a difference...
@m0m0 what makeup? doesn't look like she's wearing make up...probably just eyelash extensions
@lynn90 "Without that pretty face and height, Kris would be nowhere." I am not a fan of Kris Wu, but you pretty much summed up what IDOL singers are. Kris WU is an IDOL hence the importance of his appearance supercedes his talents.
Yeah that bound to happen anyway.
Well seeing the bias nonsense comments i will say ageless beauty my as*, it looks like she had too many filler and the cin had been fixed with thread more than once hence it will need to retouch again and by the time comes the filler and the thread will make her "ageless beauty" again. Yeah before she had a babyface beauty but she couldn't defeat time none of us can now of course as a woman she has to preserve the once youth face that she had too bad it looks like she got the wrong doctor but gotta admire her spirit though.
No, Heshen was not like in the drama. What he could do, maybe but who he was? Maybe he is the Najib of his time. He was terribly corrupted. Unless he was terribly maligned, and he was a nice guy who kept the emperor's money in his own house filled with kingly ornaments meant for king. I want Ruco to be the anti hero. Ep 1 seems to suggest everyone thinks that Heshen is corrupt, like the emperor who however indulged his favourite "son". Like he may be corrupt but loyal. Like Wai Siu Bo? But real HeShen was more than corrupt. I believe he was a disruptive figure, manipulative and for a man to forget who he was because he was treated 2nd to none, not even the emperor's son, surely he can't be humble or nice. He only be nice to 1. I want Ruco's heshen to be bad, evil, have some bloody personality. But ep 1 is so I don't know, I see winter and I was like TVB still has some furs they need to use. Everytime Qing, must be winter. Shaun Tam is impressive as in his deep voice. he gives an impression he is not 50 pounds underweight and he looks like he has gravitas to be an emperor. Acting was ok, looking angry. I think he has a much better voice than his dad. Pitching these 2 guys together, of course Jiaqing was jealous. Which son won't be of a man who robbed his father of his affection? But he shen was not just a man interested in affection. I disagree with Ruco in his interpretation. I was in Beijing and went to his "mini palace" and it was disgusting to see it. It felt so pompously exactly like the forbidden palace and you can feel the ambition of the man who stayed there. At some point of the series I thought maybe TVB mistaken Prince Gong as He Shen. I hope ep 2 will be better but ep 1.. what a night our He shen had eh? One night and he went to the palace multiple times, assassination multiple times, embraced by 2 women, etc etc etc. Busy busy man. Ps interesting read https://www.bustle.com/articles/195013-7-outrageously-corrupt-politicians-from-history
@m0m0 She was lovable in My Unfair Lady, but she was still too serious. Her role wasn't light-hearted enough. If you think about all the previous BA winners and their lighthearted roles, you'll see what I mean.
@jimmyszeto first thing first, I was speaking to Jayne, since she is the one who scolded me. I was expecting an answer from her, not you. You said that member's comment was not meant as an attack, then when I reponded to you in kind, I was attacking you. Lol,lol,lol. Can someone shout double standard? Amen!. Funny thing is, my comment was expressing my thoughts about the couple in the article and I am pretentious for that. You started out on me and I responded to you, just like the member responded to me, and you said I was attcking you, yet the member was not attacking me as you so clearly pointed out........okay.......... Am I missing something here Jimmy?. Do explain it to me like I'm a backward, ignorant, illiterate two year old, lol. You know, if you want to be the site police and leader, be the man, be fair, or I dont think you should be policing the sitr. How disrespectful when you take sides without just cause to do so. You do all the time, especially if you have a beef with a member here. If that is not being shallow and pretentious, I don't know what is.
some pics posted are actually healthy/sexy but yeah, a couple of them are pretty sleazy so might be a good idea t ban it overall since it's all perspective
can't help but notice the make up....but cute baby.
kris is indeed very tall and handsome. i do think that without his looks, he'd be able to make it in kpop. it's not that he's got absolutely no talent, although rap is not exactly my taste. i can't really judge on his rapping from the little that i know about it.
@jjwong When they aren't newsworthy, they feel the need to make themselves get noticed again...
@bubbletea I just think @jjwong's comment was not an attack but you felt hurt hence the hostile response. Also no.. Jayne is checking up on this site, not me..
I watch 3w3l out of boredom but surpringly love the storyline. But this Fuyao seems like there’s going to be many fighting? Not a big fan.
Her expression is hilarious. What horrifying? Don’t tell me these netizens have not have any bad timing photos of themselves before? This has nothing to do with getting old and wrinkles.. an 18yo girl will look ‘horrifying’ in a wrong angle and wrong lighting. And what’s wrong really with these people? Celebrities are human for god sake... they will get sick, get old, get tired, get angry, get lazy just like every normal being. Ageing is a beautiful thing, especially like Ruby now, great career with loving family life. You don’t expect her to stay 22 forever. IMO, she’s even prettier now compare to her early debut years.. elegant lady.
@jimmyszeto IDK maybe they DID break up and are now back together. Was the turn out of his concerts greatly improved/effected I wonder? Anywayd, many yesterday's celebs have done worse stunts and said bigger lies than this child-play broke up news. Though it's a little refreshing imo since it's break-up and not the typical, omg they're dating/hooking up with on screen co-star buzz lol.
@littlefish Yea, more neg news about her than neg news on WH after they got together. Guess he has a bigger fangirling-base than her. I'm happy for them too. They seem matching: low key personality, low maintenance, not a limelight seeker, good looking, similar level professional success, and want to start family. Surely this type of none sense negs aren't effecting them.
@jimmyszeto what did I do to you that you are preaching to me? Explain to me, indulge me. I simply replied to a post you addressed to me, not even one you made about the contents of this article. Get my point ? So you are saying that it is alright for someone to attack me personally and directly. Yet when I tried to show you what happened, I was a nasty, negative person. WOW!!. Why do you have to feel you are the authority here, to police and kerp things in order, especially when it comes to me? I dont get it. Not looking for a fight. Just asking a question or two. I have that freedom, I hope.
@terrycrews19 I thought it was the NBA, too, but I didn't want to correct the fan, since I don't follow Kris enough to correct fans on his activities, so I thought the fan knew what she was talking about. Hehe. The NBA is a fair exchange for Kris. Everyone wants to bank in China, so like you said, the NBA is trying hard to have more exposure in China and on the same token, Kris is trying hard to have exposure in the US, releasing English songs continuously and collaborating with US artists plus hanging around some of the most popular NBA players. I don't understand his rap because I don't even understand him half of the time when he speaks. He talks lazily like he won't pick up his tongue. Lol His acting sucks. He should stick to singing but even then, he has no emotions, his voice falls flat. That explains why he was a rapper in EXO and not one of the main singers like Luhan. At least Luhan can sing. Kris shouldn't rap either because he's trying way too hard that it doesn't flow and it's so cringey. I watched him a few times and I'm like uh, no. It's hard not to see him when he's everywhere, but hey, he must have some talent right to make this much money?! Yeah, it's called his face and height and young fans just throwing their support at him because he's pretty and bad boyish. On top of that, Kris walks around looking like he owns the place. Talk about no talent and humility. But I'm just saying.
I can never appreciate rap. LOL. I do not find him particularly handsome though he does posses the naughty boy look which some girls find sexy, I think. Girls love him so anything sells.
@bubbletea If you are going to retaliate with personal name calling and ridiculing after every negative opinion on one of your posts then it will be never-ending process. Can't expect everyone to enjoy your posts. Not sure how you can play the victim to Jayne once again when everyone can see your attacks...
@jimmyszeto you sound so shallow. /that's all.
@jjwong ever since the news of her dating WH broke out, she has been hit with a lot of bad press. She used to have a few bad press here and there, but it does increase 10 folds once she’s involved with WH. Whatever, it seems they are as solid as rocks! So I’m happy for them xD
This is my opinion of him just base on this song: the song is over auto tuned. It likes it’s the best the machine can do to make it sounds like he’s singing! And even that can’t save the song, his auto tuned voice is so jarring to the ears that make you want to switch it off. I tried listen to the song but after a minute in, my ears were bleeding... don’t know how anyone can listen to this PoS. Let’s alone be in the top 100! But hey, if the stupid hamster song was no.1 once for many weeks, this could be in the top 100! For his face, meh, he does not look that great in valerian, and his acting.... so terrible! I also do think that take away his face and his height, he’s nothing.
@lynn90 I think you guys mean NBA Celebrity All Stars. NBA is trying very hard to have more exposure in China, it is their 2nd largest market.
Can anyone actually understand his rap? I listened while reading the lyrics and I still scratched my head, 'huh'? Did he really popularized rap in China? I remember there was already rap songs that won awards back in HK golden years day. Some was even in Mandarin.
They are just liars when use the media to make themselves relevant every once in a while since they have no appeal....
@bubbletea @jjwong's comment wasn't a personal attack though....
She's adorable. I hope she stays this way. She's a breath of fresh air.
i love the rhyming
@jayne I hear you Jayne, but do you think it was alright for jwong to respond to my comment by attacking me, and not responding to my post, but a direct needless and malicious attack on me?! Why am I the only one being scolded?. I guess I will be fair game for the haters here. People respond when they are directly attacked. Did you read my first comment in this thread and then jwog's reply? Anyone would have fpught fire with fire. How would you or anyone feel if I responded to their comment like that straight off the bat? That is all I have to say about that. P.S, what is so pretentious about my comment. Since I'm being scolded, I'd like to know that much. Far from being pretentious, I'm a straigt shooter who speak my mind and who keeps things real.
@msxie0714 Haha. I did say that Kris has the face and height. 1. KPOP is all about visuals, check. 2. Burberry and brand names are all about visuals and what's "popular,"check. 3. Don't forget the "stars" in NFL All Stars. Kris is popular enough to be invited/recruited, check. So which point doesn't involve popularity, which comprises of fans, who are "worshippers" from a young generation, who by the way, love him for his visuals? Haha. If you strip Kris of his pretty face and height, I doubt any Korean agency would have recruited him and that alone, he would have never made it to be a part of Burberry or NFL All Stars. KPOP relies heavily on visuals. Why else would talented singers still dance in their short shorts and tough male rappers who wear more makeup than an average girl?
Terrible photo-shopping! his face looks waxed and eyes are out of kilter.
@lynn90 Korean managers must've been brainless to have signed him for a long contract and designated him leader of EXO. What was Burberry thinking when they chose him as model/spokesman. And the NFL recruited him for the All Stars competition TWICE, mind you.
@bubbletea @jjwong Please end this right here. @bubbletea It's not the first time you've gotten into arguments with other users. No need to call other users rude names. I will utilize the "ban" feature next time if you can't show greater respect.
Without that pretty face and height, Kris would be nowhere. He has no talent. He can't even speak properly, let alone, rap or sing. He's lucky that he was born into the right generation of brainless worshippers.
He is now well prepared to be dad in real life.
@jjwong of course, you started this so I should be allowed to have a response. It should not be an issue in the first place. Are you that angry at me that you are picking at me for no reason. Your original comment was so wrong and uncalled for. I don't have to have the last word but yes, in this case, I deserve the last word. Sure you are not going to come back and say "I told you you had to have the last word cause you're pretentious", lol. Tell me something, oh psychic one.....who will win the world cup? LMAO, at you. Have a good day.
@bubbletea Lol, you always have to have one-up everyone. Go ahead and response. You'll have the last words. Have a goos day.
Having se x is normal indeed; "sneaking around like stealing potatoes" isn't xD
@llwy12 Agree. I don't mean to put out an impression that no one from golden years are help younger gen either. It just doesn't seem to be enough since the gold year gen still dominates headlines and movies. Maybe it is too early to tell/replace. True that it's good Andy Lau is at least investing. Gordon and Anthony aren't the young gen though... Sam Ho promoted CKL at least a decade ago. Then again it's better late than never. Speaking of which, is Gordon consider yo be Andy's protégé just as CKL is Sam's?
@jjwong yes, you are wrong. So am I. Not only are you a jackass, but also an opinionated , belligerent one to boot. You can't expect to attack someone for no reason at all and not expect feedback. I'm pretentious, you are an ignorant, belligerent jackass, and we should give it a rest. I mean nothing to you and you ain't worth shyte to me. I have important people to pay attention to so let's put this to rest.
@jjwong Don’t get me wrong — there are quite a few who are willing and have taken it upon themselves to cultivate next generation. In the movie industry, legendary director Johnnie To and scriptwriter Wai Ka Fai are two examples — in fact, the two of them opened a a production company together whose entire purpose was to cultivate a new generation of filmmakers to carry the torch. And it has paid off — look at the HKFA Best Picture winner from 2 years go, the movie Trivisa, which was one of the movies that came out of the mentor ship program that the two of them created. The movie was actually produced by Johnnie To and Yau Nai Hoi (who is one of Wai Kai Fai’s mentees and a long-time collaborator with the two) but yet they took very little credit for the movie, instead pushing all the credit over to the 3 young directors who helmed the production. I read an interview the 3 directors did and they had said that they learned a lot from both producers, though both chose to mentor behind the scenes in a more support/consulting role so the young directors could be independent but still go to them for support if needed. And of course, it paid off, not just because the movie won many awards, but also because it won much critical acclaim and praise across the board (except in China of course where the movie was banned for political reasons and also because it painted China/CCP in a bad light). I see Andy Lau in a similar light to Jackie in that he primarily makes movies with himself at the center, though in recent years he’s done a better job in terms of investing in projects that don’t feature himself (3 recent examples I can think of are: the movie The Gallants, which was produced by Gordon Lam but funded by Andy; the Fox Asia TV series Trading Floor, which he was billed as producer; and a stage play that Anthony Wong starred in, which I don’t remember the name of at the moment). Now of course Andy investing money in other projects definitely doesn’t count the same as say Johnnie To investing time and energy (as well as money) into training the next generation, but the way I see it, Andy at least making the effort to move the focus of his movies away from himself is definitely a step in the right direction (and more than what Jackie Chan has done in this area).
@jimmyszeto Not only that the very first "case" about the bird took the jewelry is an exact copy of Can't Buy Me Love series. At first I thought it was an ode to the old series but now I believe it was more of very lazy writting like you said. @ppp91 I remember seeing the synopsis saying they are sisters. I agree with everyone that rhyming is annoying AF!! And there's no om screem chemistry at all between Steven and Nancy.
@llwy12 That's very very unfortunate. The irony is how we keep feeling nostalgic and referencing back to the golden days where all these now-super-stars entertained us. And how opened and willing they were learning from the previous gen. Then we scolded the young gen of today not be so open and learn, but in reality how many golden years people are willing to teach and pass the torch? I flew internationally between Asian countries a lot for past few years. 90% of the Asian movies starred these golden years actors. Andy Lau starred 4 movies out of 15 or 18 ! I have yet flown one time without having a new Andy film on the list, lol.
@bubbletea I am a jackass to some; I am not to many. I was wrong. You sound not only pretentious, but also opinionated. I'm also wrong in keep dragging this on
@jjwong Completely agree! One of the biggest complaints about the HK entertainment industry is the lack of capable artists to carry the torch from older generations. Unfortunately there are many older generation in the industry that exacerbate the problem by not supporting the effort to cultivate newcomers so that they become capable of carrying on the industry’s legacy in the future. Jackie Chan is one of the biggest examples of this (there are more but since this article is about him, will use him as example). He has his own production company and frequently serves as executive producer / producer of movies, but the problem is all of those movies have himself at the center. Like his upcoming grand production Hollywood-China-Hong Kong collaboration Project X, which he is producing and starring in alongside wrestler John Cena, with directing duties helmed by big name director Scott Waugh — at the press con at the Shanghai Film Festival where they introduced the movie, there was so much talk about Jackie’s wealth of experience in the industry and how this movie will be spectacular in terms of stunts and action sequences due to the “trifecta” of JC, Cena, and Waugh, emphasis on how the teams working on the production from all sides are super-experienced, etc etc. A film like that would’ve been perfect opportunity to bring newcomers into the mix and cultivate them, train them, mentor them, etc....instead, it’s all about Jackie and the fact that he still does his own stunts at like 60 years old (I made up that number, as too lazy to go look up his age) and he along with his super experienced stunt team will choreograph all the fight scenes, etc etc. I mean, even his “big brother” Sammo Hung understands what it means to mentor the newer generation (which is exactly what he did with Chin Kar Lok, his protégée who is now an award-winning action choreographer in his own right with his own stunt team). Sure, people can argue that older artists have no obligation to help cultivate future generations, which may be true, but then that says a lot about those artists and whether they are in it for the fame and fortune...those who truly care about their craft and don’t want to see it die out are those who will be more willing to take on the mentor role and encourage future generations to rise up. Sorry for the slightly off topic long rant, lol...will stop now...
@jjwong I wrote a comment after reading a very touching, emotional letter from a loving husband to his wife. It was heartbreaking to read that they had lost two babies in the past. It was wonderful to know that they now have a baby. I wrote my comment and you attacked me. You do not know me or what i was feeling as I wrote that post. I operate from the heart. I have been called a few things but a hypocrite, or pretentious are not any of them. You decided you are going to be a rabid psychic and attack me, and then follow it up with some commemt trying to justify your rabid, uncalled for attack. You were not even responding or disagreeing to my post, you just went off like a mad woman off her meds. Now how would you take it if someone said something to a decent, sensible on topic comment that you made. No you do not need all these things to do the tasks that you asked, but your opinion should be about a comment relating to a post which you disagree or agree with, then you can attack me if I attack you, not just some crazy, psychic-like 'opinion' attack. Your opinion should not be your psychic or psychological direct assessment of a member. You do that, and you will get heat.
@jjwong You sound like a jackass. /that's all.
So far 3 times a partner has sacrificed himself/herself to save a loved one. All so predictable!. It's one thing recycling plots from old series but pathetically lazy script writing to recycle the same plot multiple times within the same series.....
one more thing, does anyone notice that Prince of Song keeps wearing the same robe, and that it looks too big on him? lol
Now watching ep 18. Is it just me or Princess Taiping suddenly has weird winged eyebrows? It's so annoying.. The only cast I really enjoy here is Annie Liu. It was interesting in the beginning, but since ep 15 onwards, I feel like it's getting weird. Especially how the Princess never really greeted the Emperor properly and how the Emperor looks so idle, kept visiting everyone and without the company of a gong2, the crown prince looks so much busier. I don't really know about Chinese history, but this one is so different from other ancient drama; like how the maids are not afraid of the royals and are so free, the princess is so powerful and dabbles too much in the administration, the emperor is too timid and kind of dumb. So the emperor really cares for his family, but he keeps doubting his son, and he cares too much about the princess. The emperor feels like someone unimportant in this drama, doesn't have charisma and doesn't look powerful. I was so excited when I found this drama since I really liked BTROC, but I'm kinda disappointed, I just keep watching for Annie's story, I somehow have a feeling that Chrissie would be her sister.
@bubbletea Do you need to attend Juilliard to know good music? Do you need to have a culinary degree to be a good cook? Do you to be a professional photographer to take great photos? Do you need to be a cop to catch a thief? Do you need to be a psychic to have and form an opinion?
Those are bad photos. Not because she's bad looking but because of bad photography. Not saying only photoshop pics should be posted, just saying these are taking badly. Anyone in that situation will look as "ghoulish" as her in those pics. Is it just me or does it seem like there are more neg news on her AFTER she married WH? Bitter fans who work in media are getting even or taking out on her? O_o
@anon @llwy12 AGREE! Also glad she didn't focus in HK films either. Go big or go home! Fala, to me, was a female version of Ron Ng back then. They were pretty to look at but weren't very convincing in their roles. Ron had a shorter end of the stick since he was typecast. Fala had more variety roles but she was one note. Hopefully she did learn a lot and is now a better and more convincing actress. Good luck to her!
Ï@mike There are lots of Hollywood celebs committed adultery or a horrible person/spouse/parent and they're still being adored by their fans. JC is definitely not the first "scum" and still survives in the limelight. Whatever happens to his estranged about to be homeless daughter cry for help over youtube?? For the sake of being off topic, these kind of actors (old gen, already established, and have their own company) should groom and promote the next generation instead of hogging every movie xD
@sabi yup, what’s minhee said. Ten miles of peach blossom has many names lol: tmopb, 3L3w or 3310, it’s also called eternal love (but this could get confused with another supposedly good drama also called eternal love but it has time travel feature in it). If you haven’t seen it and like fantasy love story, then you should try, I would say out of 10 ppl, maybe only 1 didn’t like it (maybe). And I wasn’t into the male lead but his acting was very good that I’m a fan after and the love story and the ost was very good, albeit a lot of cliche/common plot devices lol.
@sabi 3w3l stands for Three Lives Three Worlds aka. Ten Miles of Peach Blossom aka. Eternal Love starring Yang Mi and Mark Chao :)
@anon Yup, I would be too! TVB doesn’t value acting no matter what they try to say otherwise. We don’t need to look far – just look at how they treat those artists who graduated from HK’s own Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) with actual degrees and professional training in drama and acting...the only one they treated well was Anthony Wong but that’s because he’s Anthony Wong (plus he’s not managed by them and also didn’t “come from” TVB back in the day so that makes a huge difference as well). With its international status, Julliard is way above TVB’s “pay grade” so to speak – if Fala were to return, she would essentially be throwing her MFA degree in the trash. I would definitely lose all respect for Fala if she chose to return to TVB with her degree rather than actually put what she learned to good use through opportunities elsewhere.
@mike Like it or not, Hollywood is far more open to adultery and bearing illegitimate children than China. Most tabloids don't even care to report it as its a dime a dozen.
@th3m0ng3r you are right. Coffee Lam is super fit fitness fanatic, so not surprise she has a taunt abdomen and strong ab muscles which will minimize her chances of showwing her pregnancy. However, she does have that pregnant glow and the facial pregnancy puffiness. Her body structure looks different, even without a tummy bulge, and she has put on weight all over her body. That is why I find it so hard that netizens can't see when celebrities are fooling the public about their pregnancies when the truth is, a surrogate is carrying the baby. Wish her well with her marriage and baby . She paid her dues and deserves her happiness.
@mike I am going to watch Ip Man only because of Donnie Yen. I never was a fan of Jerky Chan but found his movies entertaining. In the past several years, I've stop watching anything he stars in. Maybe I will wait till it is online. A bit off topic. North America has its fans who also think that the actors are just like the upright, decent, innocent good guy, good girl characters they portray in real life. If only they knew the disgusting slime rat that Jacky chan is.
@jjwong who died and made you ruler of the psychic world, hahaha. Pretentious???. Never been known as that and has no patience for such people. Also has no time or patience for pathetic psychics.
@iampheng well said. It is great when when fathers get involved in a pregnancy as the father helped to create that baby. The mother is the one who has the burden of swollen ankles, morning sickness, bloating from extra weight mood swings, and exposing herself to a lot of health risks during pregnancy. Some women even go through a life or death toss up during very high risk pregnancies. Yes, I agree with you when you said pregnancy isn't only a woman's concern. Yan Yukuan is a gem of a man and husband.
@jjwongLOL, let me know where you got your psychic degree from so that I can get one. /that's all.
I never thought much her as an actress, but I would be disappointed if she went back to TVB after what she had accomplished.
@littlefish hi there, new to Chinese dramas what is 3w3I, always looking for new and interesting, thanks so much I enjoy reading comments on which dramas to watch.
@bubbletea Not necessarily dirty his image but certainly it runs a risk if getting caught up with these issues.
<For someone who is not business savvy, Ruco sure has a lot of fans, popularity and money. He sure knows how to make money and stay relevant. Imagine what he could achieve if he was business savvy. So getting involved in a landlord dispute means you cannot keep a clean image? If a celebrity , or anyone has a landlord dispute, that person, or that celebrity is involved, *smiles* . Many celebs had landlord disputes and it did not dirty their images, why should it dirty Ruco's. Makes no sense that it should, and not affect the others' images who also had disputes. Like I said, times has changed, and Ruco is not doing anything that other idols are not doing. It would be nice to get some feedback from maybe @sugarcane or @jayne.
@mike What has this got to do with “Ip Man 4” Completes Filming; Donnie Yen to Fight Jackie Chan?
Westerners absolutely adore Jackie Chan. If you bring up his adultery and how he treats his illegitimate children, they still defend him. Maybe it is more common in the their culture to do those things.
@llwy12 In the past Fala led series, I have watched recently she has does not get into character. When watching her playing a housewife for example, it would be just watching the real Fala herself and not acting. I'm glad and really admire she has noticed this and spent a few years studying. I'm sure she will sure huge improvement...
@bubbletea I don't think it will be easy to come out,especially Asia. There will always so views and gossip...
@bubbletea You sound pretentious. /that's all
@bubbletea @sugarcane Yeh. Maybe it is the change of times which is why there are different personalities in the industry nowadays then in the past. Back in the 1980s, school dropouts signed up to TVB/Acting training classes as a means of finding a job to stay out of trouble. It was less lucrative and there were less stars at the time so the attitude was to work hard and learn on the go. Nowadays, you need that ambitious mentality to become the next star or to make a fortune. People are willing to give give their degrees or professions to flock to the entertainment industry. I agree that there are many 'business savvy' persons, the ones who advertise well and post videos. The ones who are able to gain tens of thousands of suscribers and views on youtube and members on their social media. I don't think Ruco is one of them. Taking a few selfies does not mean you are 'business savvy'. Another reason is that the way he got himself into the landlord dispute situation, (something he could have fully avoided) shows he isn't up to scratch in keeping a clean image. However, the social media and internet is a great platform for minor actors/actresses who want to boost their fanbase. If they make a serious effort to be creative in publishing good content they can bring in hundreds of thousands of fans overnight. Then TV stations or advertisers will come straight to them due to increase in demand.
@funnlim like i said, it seems like another adaption of Mulan legend. It has nothing to do with Disney cartoon. I'm glad an Asian cast movie will get world wide and onto US market as far as showing, but they shouldn't dub as a live action of Disney Mulan. Even C-ella and B&tB were true to Disney with some minor addition. This Mulan is totally new direction, and that's what been bothering me lol. Then again, they probably won't get as mich coverage, attention and release if they didn't tag Disney name. So uea double edge sword xD
I meant underhanded and nefarious. Also meant, just to name a few.
Hins Cheung does seem pretty gay looking to me but never knew about this KK is also gay. Oh well!! Times change, who cares. lol.....
It's also the angle and the bad lighting that made her look horrific in that pic. She looks like a wax figure. Tabloids will always use the most extreme photo to generate buzz and attention. She's not that bad in the other photos.
She was super fit to begin with so of course with such low fat percentages, her baby bump won't be as noticeable as someone who's of average or fat build.
@sugarcane very well said. Ruco has not done anything that is considered underha nvm ded or nefarious to stay relavent. He has not stepped on anyone to get to where he is now. Like you said he is very business savvy. A celeb has to know how to grab the bull by the hotn or he/she will slowly fade away. Look at Jiro Wang, Mike He. Joe Cheng, Ming Dao and Blue Lam, just to namr a few of the guys. They are handsome as ever, still in their thirties and they are fading, fast. Even Mike announce his marriage as he realized his glory days are behind him, and more of them will confirm relationships in the future. With all the twenty something years old pretty boys on the rise in Asia, Ruco and Bosco and company have serious competition. There is nothing wrong with staying savvy, and relevant in the public's eye. And I am not talking about holding up photos of the landlord dispute. Many idols from around the world have done similar to what Ruco did.
I love this! Especially, "pregnancy isn't only a woman's concern"! I think more fathers need to be involved in the pregnancy and child rearing process. I know too many men who think being present is the same thing as being engaged, it's not. I love this guy so much!
I'm not a parent myself but in my circle of friends, once they started having kids, it's like those babies were the center of everything in their worlds. Also, nobody got any good sleep...for like 3 years. haha. Naturally, everybody started looking a little more haggard in our early to mid 30s group. Well, except for me of course, as the only single and unmarried person. Babies even trump good genes, unless you had them when you were truly young (teens, early 20s). Ruby is already looking dang youthful for a new mom with a career in her 40s.
I didn't think much of Fala when she first started out. But she wasn't that great of an actress then either. After a while, though, something changed and she grew on me. She never awed me in the way that, say, Ada Choi did. Or Sheren Tang. However, this girl has charisma & screen presence. There's enough strength in her acting that made her stand out. Plus she's very easy on the eyes. In her late 30s, though, I wonder if she's not starting a little too late. I mean her Asian genes will help her along the way, but it's a cut throat world in Hollywood. G'luck to her.
@janet72 He is definitely aging like a bottle of fine wine. :P Admittedly, I did not find him to be all that handsome when he was younger. *dodges tomatoes*
@jimmyszeto I see where you're coming from. Back then, actors lacked the privilege of digital/mass marketing, so they had to mostly rely on sheer talent and hard work to achieve recognition. This, no doubt, helped build their strength of character and virtue. There also seemed to be a bigger sense of camaraderie back then, whereas these days, it's all about individualism and commercialism. That said, I agree with @bubbletea that since the entertainment industry is a very different beast now than it was before, actors need to move with the times if they want to have relevance in an age where social media and PR are all the rage. I don't think this makes Ruco a questionable character, but rather, business savvy. For him to resist the influence of social media would put him at risk of falling behind his peers. It's all about adapting, really.
@llwy12 I also thought she was very mediocre and undeserving of all the leading roles she was handed. Granted, I did prefer her over most of her female peers who were also gaining popularity during that time (Kate Tsui, Selena Li, Linda Chung to name a few). That said, I'm all about Asians gaining more visibility in Hollywood, and am curious to see how much she has improved since her training. I, too, wish to see her breakthrough, as there is an obvious shortage of talented Asian representatives (especially women) in the western film industry. Hopefully, she doesn't end up with some cheesy kung-fu role or really, any role that devolves into Asian stereotypes. Fingers crossed!
@llwy12 I too want to see Fala succeed. Her acting is not the grestest but who knows, maybe pursuing roles in Hollywood will make her turn up her acting a few notches. I too will watch if she gets a role lasting five minutes or longer. Sometimes it id not about how fantastic of an actor/actress one is, it is about taking constructive criticism anf advice and channelling it into hard work and the desire to improve. That is what Fala has done. The likes of a Grace Chan can learn a thing or two from Fala.
Am I the only one who loved 3W3L from start to finish? Especially the first 6 episodes which really sucked me into the story. The only bits I had to skip were the DH/FJ scenes which were hella boring. I am glad the series followed a linear timeline rather than the sequence of the book, which was confusing at times.
I’m one of those people who was critical of Fala’s acting back when she was at TVB and felt she was getting unfairly promoted when her acting sucked. I’m still not a fan, but I admire the fact that Fala took all the criticism she received back then and turned it into a positive by working hard to earn her MFA in Drama and proving to the world that she is truly serious about pursuing an acting career. I also wish Fala the best of luck and hope she lands the roles she’s looking for. As a means of support, I’m willing to watch whatever Hollywood production she ends up in (provided it’s not the Fan Bing Bing 5-second-blink-and-you’ll-miss-her flower vase or Jing Tian token Asian type role). It sounds like she is pursuing meaningful roles in smaller, lesser name productions, which is the smart way to go in my opinion – it will likely take longer for her to find a suitable role, but hopefully she persists and doesn’t cave into the pressure of accepting shoddy roles just to get her name in Hollywood circles. I’m definitely rooting for her to succeed!
she doesn't look pregnant at all!
2 miscarriages are really heart-breaking. congrats on having a healthy baby girl.
Hins cheung basically admitted that he and Kenny Kwan are an item, but everyone knew that for years now. It it easier for gay singers to come out than it is for actors or actors/singers, especially males. I guess they don't have that leading man image to worry about.
@dugdugdug They also collaborated on a fight scene in "Twins Effect 2"
I watched parts of different episodes. The main cooking ingredients are impossible to cook all the way through 100% within 30 mins. Experience cooks will chop those in smaller pieces then cook or immediately put in the oven. The first dishes seem very complicated, ie get meat in and then a sauce. So really, the show is set up for the tasters to eat undercooked food for the bad/neg responses and feedbacks. I don't feel bad for the hosts getting sick. They need better, smarter and "easier" meat ingredient to cook.
@mangotango yes, the story started out with her determine to jump. It took her narrative, painted YH as a bad man. I saw a review and the reviewer said she could understand why they did the beginning, to build the world, and not to confuse the audiences (though I’m like what’s there to confuse lol). Stranger? Is it Korean? I might check it out Well, that reviewer also said a few thing about China: if you do anything with fantasy elements after 1946 (I think, after the revolution), they need to add a scientific explanation to everything. That’s why Victoria Song’s latest series has the Fox demon actually an alien race (eye rolling). Then currently, they are limiting it so the tv channels can’t broadcast more than 10% of its air time on period drama. However it seems web drama can help by passing a few restrictions, for example the time traveling ban. Or the allocated time for period drama. My point is a lot of the reasons why cdrama can’t seem to be creative or out of their normal comfort zones is because of all these silly restrictions the government puts on them.
"While both are big martial arts stars, they did not collaborate on many films together before." Shanghai Knights is the only one to my knowledge.
@littlefish Thanks. Yeah, 3W3L is not too bad though I did fast forward most of the time. I was interested in the storylone since I could not read the novel. The actual story started when she jumped into the well? So the beginning were fillers? Will give Fuyao the miss..Currently hooked on one of the best crime drama..Stranger. No time to watch others. LOL. Wonder when China will explore other genres than relying one costume dramas. Maybe that is the taste of China audience?
@jayne Indeed Jayne. I have always admired Yan YiKuan as an actor, he has always stayed out of scandal (that I know of anyway) and seems to be a very genuine person. It always good to hear positive news from celebs couple.
@mangotango 3w3l was a lot better than I expected, admittedly I skipped the first 10 or so episodes because that was boring and literally not needed. Along with the support storyline, apart from the second main leads story, every other stories are been there done that, nothing new and is serious drag. Even the concubine of YH was a chore.... This one, I’m waiting until it’s finished, because I love 3w3l and that didn’t hook me at the beginning, I actually check back at the half way mark (coincidenly at the point where she was blind and jumped off, which is where the novel starts) and found myself really interested in it, and started watching from there (didn’t go back until the end, where I go back to where they live in the human world, to this day, I haven’t managed to watch the beginning, I saw the whole first episode when I first tried it). For this one, according to the comments, it is popular but also Chinese press didn’t like it, however all the viewers love it and think this is another 3w3l and the chemistry between the leads is very good, however it is not as melodramatic as 3w3l. You can start watching it, but with it being 66ep, there will be drag, I learnt my lesson, I will wait lol
@littlefish Yeah the story lines are always predictable and similar. I watched 3W3L because I was curious about the famous novel. I do like the songs in that drama though. Is this good?
I think he is good looking. So would not have problems finding willing partners.
@shishi "The journey of pregnancy is very magical! His love for his wife, his child, his family means more than fame to him, it is nice they found each other." I was very moved by Yan Yikuan's love letter to his wife. Not many actors will put aside work for half a year, so he can experience pregnancy together with Sunny. He seems to be a very emotive and appreciative person. Hope to hear more about their love journey as they experience parenthood.
She looks pretty, good luck to her!
The journey of pregnancy is very magical! His love for his wife, his child, his family means more than fame to him, it is nice they found each other. She is lucky to have him and he much also be lucky to have her, she must be an amazing partner as well!
@tinlunlau thanks for the information. Not too bright for the thief to pick up the call.
@littlefish The choreography may not be the best, but I think Nine Percent still has promise. They still need more time to work together as a group. "And regarding his dancing, there was moments where I think I see what you mean, but it did not last longer than a second." Haha, yes there are flashes of good moves from Cai Xukun. I look forward to seeing more of what he can do. :)
@dramas4me if Ethan Ruan's real voice was to be used in the period drama it would be more off, since his Taiwanese accent would be really noticeable for the mainland audience. I actually am accustomed to the voice dubbing when it comes to mainland period drama, best is to pick someone more suitable for the actor's looks and character.
@littlefish she looks like that cartoon betty boop heh
His buddy rottendoubt from alivenotdead was recently a victim of theft earlier this week too. Some guy stole his phone and he even called his cell phone speaking with the thief.
I am so happy for this sweet couple. I wonder if Sunny Du knows how loved and blessed she is..... That letter will touch anyone's heart, whether you are male or female. You actually felt their pain, then their joy and love while reading Yikuan's touching letter. So heartbreaking they had two miscarriages. Words cannot describe the pain a couple go through when they experience a miscarriage. Finally they have a fat baby. I am happy for Sunny and Yan Yikuan. I paray for happiness, love and health for them and their daughter. What a loving gem of a husband.
I remember @llwy12 saying that Fala will try for Hollywood roles and I echoed that sentiment. Good for her for reaching out for roles outside of TVB. Great not to let all that time spent studying, not to mention the study fees go to waste. Fala shouldn't give up, hang in there, the roles will eventually come. Sometimes it takes a bit of time to break into the international market, but persistence usually pay off. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Fala.
