Go Tracy, good on ya. I have to hand it to celebrities who pursue an education at the highest level. Studios used to find roles that suited their actors and actresses as they age. Nowadays, when an actor or actress reaches their mid to late thirties, they become redundant. TVB has even announced their new crop of future leading men. Ron Ng and Bosco Wong and all the current leading men should should take note of that. They threw in an older guy but they have a lot of young bucks that they want to announce in the near future. That has become the trend. A lot of celebrities drop out of high school or college to pursue their dreams, leaving them with little to no education. By forty yrs old, their roles have dried up and they have no formal education. By pursuing a law degree, Tracy can become an entertainment lawyer, they make so much money, and as an entertainer herself, that would be right up her alley. Entertainers will take her VERY seriously. Hope the trend continues with idols going back to school.
Please go away. Honestly why is this guy still in the industry. He's a late " bloomer" and even then he is totally replaceable, from looks to singing to acting.Not to mention he is getting old. Would much rather see Hubert.
That is great. Good to know that fans can call on their idols for assistance and donations.
Now that is what I call an idol giving back to his fans. We need more of them like Hans Zhang. I bet that fan scrimps and saves to support her idol. Obviously she is not rich. If she was, her friend would not be asking other fans for donations to help her. BTW, she is the perfect example of a caring friend. Great thay her idol stepped in to help. I can only pray for positive, prosperous blessings a m.p.h. d good health for Hans Zhang. Praying that his fans will get a miracle from God, through the skilful hands of the doctors and be well.
@littlefish That is just...depressing. Seriously what is wrong with the government there? There are so many ways they can and need to improve their country, THAT is not one of them.
Oh no!!!......first the bad news about the "new" faces tthat TVB will be heavily promoting and now more bad news.......ughhhhh!!!! TVB is truly on the road to its demise if these are the actors who will be leading their dramas in future.
@kmfayb Yes, it makes me wonder why she did not reach out to her own family or friends for help. I suspect that she didn't even tell anyone about her cancer or family issues. Most likely, she isolated herself from everyone and kept her problems to herself. Overtime, the unresolved issues built up in her and she took a wrong turn to end it all.
i could only pity, that husband should jump off a building himself
i can’t see him as both an actor and a singer, just stay as a singer, he can’t act at all :/
That is the thing about Asia on a whole. Asian society is cold, uncaring and lacks simple sympathetic and empathetic skills. The society is still steeped in the belief that men can cheat, but not the women, and the women should accept it and not say anything, especially if the husband is rich and providing the necessities in life for the wife and any children. We all know that seeking psychological help is frowned upon in these parts, no wonder we have so many mental fans and netizens. I roll my eyes at the things they have to say. There are so many suicides but it is never talked about. Even in the West, there were chinese who I know hurt or killed themselves because they were depressed over some idol getting married or involved in a relationship. A buddy in the Philippines told me that over twenty women ranging in ages 19 to 37 killed or hurt themselves several years ago when a certain actress did not marry the man they shipped her with for years. The older generation don't believe in counseling, and they dissuade the youner people from seeking help through therapy. Then again, I read a psychiatrist in China said there is nothing wrong with fantasizing about being with your idol. Poor Miki probably had no one to turn to. She maybe even lost so called friends when she told them she had cancer. These people don't know how to, and-or don't want to deal with sensitive situations. Then again, you can't put oil in a lamp if you have no oil.
This may only be the tip of an iceberg. There may be many more suicides we may not be aware of. Whether a woman is able to walk away from a scumbag husband depends on so many other variables. Her confidence, her personality, supportive environment etc. Unfortunately, maybe in China it is still acceptable for a man to stray particularly a rich man. If there are supportive systems like counselling in place, maybe there might be less depression suicides. But then I noticed that seeing a psychologist may be frowned upon in Asia. If the society has little empathy for depressions, it is likely for the person to be left to her/his own. Sad.
I thought Big White Duel is the upcoming medical drama with Kenneth Ma??
I am saddened by her tragic death and my heart goes out to Miki's two young children, I worry for them. It makes me angry that Miki gave up her career to be a full time wife and mother to her husband's children, and the pile of crap repaid her by cheating on her. It is so appalling that he treated his children to cheap goods but himself and his mistress got the best. That was so wrong and disrespectful to Miki and the children on so many levels. I cant believe he used to ask Miki for money after gambling his money away. To think the poor woman was going through this humiliation and heartache while battling cervical cancer. What the mother in law said is just disgusting, and proves that chinese women need to wake up. So it is okay for the man to cheat once he looks after the home, providing for the wife and children? The wife should be tolerant of his cheating? That was such a cruel thing for that hag of a mother-in-law to say. To defend her son's cheating is so wrong on so many levels. Yes, he is her son, but this time he is wrong she knew it and chose to still take his side. Well this particular scumbag hardly looked after the children and sponged off the wife. This man has no shame or conscience, and I am scared for those two children being in his care , and the care of their cold, rigid backward grandmother, his mom. They both have blood on their hands.
@coralie Might not be the end...maybe once her legal career is established, she can still do acting projects on the side if she has that “acting itch” in the future....that’s what Angie Chiu’s husband Melvin Wong did for several decades after getting his law degree in the 90s. Money Lo is another example of a celebrity turned successful lawyer...though she’s not really active in the industry anymore but she does perform legal services for a lot of celebrities in the industry so still quite connected....
Wow Nat! If everyone carried that same thought, there will be no high quality work. No wonder you haven't had a quality production in over 20 years (I am being generous here).
If it has been loveless so long, should have just left him. Now the children are left to this scumbag who will remarry. And she is dead. Should have gotten herself a good lawyer, take custody, money and fortune and live a better life. Suicide serves no benefit other than to benefit him. He will be just fine. What a travesty.
The mother in laws advice was a big steaming pile of crap. You do not say that to a woman in this day and age to excuse the scummy behaviour of your son. She has a big part to play in this.
@bubbles23 exactly my thoughts. Back in the day they were promoted in their 20s like Chilam Cheung and Louis Koo in the Condor series. Why is it these days young actors dont seem to be given any opportunities?
Poor girl. Wealth for the sake of mental happiness isn't worth it. Especially with such a stingy man who isn't even willing to part with his money. Should've divorced him instead & take half.
A shame that this might mark the end of her showbiz career. I can't imagine anyone taking a celebrity seriously once they're in the real legal world. But, at least the rest of her life will be stable & safe from the grueling world of entertainment.
Omg one of the most stupid things Ive ever read. Men come in all shapes and sizes, why must they all fit the same mould? Having more muscle or sporting a beard does not make you more of a man. I wish people like Nicholas Tse will give over. I know he loves his goatie but he is just another effeminate man hiding behind his goatie. He was born beautiful and should own it.
Don't know how trustworthy is this news, but rumors say that Ruco Chan has a high chance of winning. He just announced his engagement and wedding in October so he will "trade" the live streaming of his wedding on Big Big Channel for the TV King award.
@jimmyszeto Yup...though I guess being rich is better in that you’ll have the means to escape to another country more easily. The key, like you said, is not to be greedy — earn enough to get you comfortable, then get the hell out of there. The U.S. actually has visas specifically for this type of immigrant, but they have to be willing to invest a certain monetary amount in the U.S. in order to qualify (which of course is just a drop in the bucket for the millionaire businessmen in China). By the way, I just saw the below article...apparently there is more to the situation. It doesn’t seem like a coincidence that the names involved in this whole scandal (the initial whistleblower Cui Yongyuan, Fan Bing Bing, and director Feng Xiaogang) are all connected to each other via one particular movie.... https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/fan-bingbing-scandal-widens-as-famed-director-is-cut-high-profile-film-1144866
husband's a scumbag
great for her to experience so much at such an early age. a celebrity and soon a lawyer. this girl's had it all.
joel chan is great, very handsome, tall and can act. i wonder why hubert, he doesn't have the vibe at all. owen and matt are pretty good choices. they forgot pakho, he's also excellent lead material.
cast is great minus sisle. excited to see kara and geng lap man
@dalebaines did you hear about the latest thing China has done? Social credit rating: gonna discriminating whoever doesn’t follow the government. There was already one case of a reporter got bad credit, not allowed to walk on the Main Street, Other people won’t talk to him, etc, he literally being isolated, and is now fearing for his daughter as she might not be able to get into a decent school because of his credit. The future is gloom for Chinese :(
@llwy12 I feel it is quite gloomy whether rich or poor in China. If a person is rich from business there is no chance that that person had not participated in another corrupted. Just to be granted a business licence or using the territory for business location underhand payments need to paid just to continue running. The odds of one day being targeted by enemies by turning you in or targeted by authorities over these crimes are low but it can happen. Once it happens they can decide to charge you with the seriousness of the crime they feel on the day. Obviously being poor in China is a a terrible option but safer. My opinion really is to not be greedy. Once earn a bit of money quickly, move investments abroad and then get out quick. I’ve known that there are investment sums for a period required to gain citizenship in foreign countries. I think it’s £2million for England invested over a few years. Some countries are much cheaper....
@peachyogurt Agreed. Louisa Mak should learn from Tracy...lol
@anon I think if we do end up hearing from Fan Bing Bing, it will be her showing up on national television in a pre-recorded video clip where she "confesses" her wrong dong and "apologizes" for how much she has harmed China and its citizens. That has been the pattern for most of the "dissidents" -- whether celebrity or ordinary citizen -- who have dared to cross the government in the past: record a public confession, sign a paper agreeing to wipe all details from one's memory and not talk about it with anyone ever, and swear on your own life (and the lives of your loved ones) that you will never do it again. To save her what little face she has left, let's just hope that FBB's "confession" won't be as ridiculously scripted as those missing HK booksellers' confessions were...
@kmfayb Some companies actually already have "kowtowed" to China and most likely will continue to do so. There have been numerous instances in the past year or so where China tried to exert its influence by demanding that American companies (and companies based in other countries around the world) change websites or promotional material that they deem is "offensive" to them. Several months back, I can't remember which company it was, I think it was one of the airlines (either American or United) that had a list of countries on its website for flights it services and Taiwan was listed there -- Chinese government had a fit because they consider Taiwan as part of China and so anyone who refers to Taiwan as a country is disrespecting China....they put pressure on that airline to change their website and of course the airline caved because they didn't want to lose China's business. That's just one of many examples....it's been happening more and more in recent years as China has gotten more and more powerful and therefore more ambitious in trying to assert its dominance over the rest of the world....
@terrycrews19 Haha...yup, so true! This social responsibility score thing isn't just for celebrities though -- they rolled it out for ordinary citizens too. I saw an article a few weeks ago explaining how it works for regular folks and let's just say I wouldn't want to be a citizen of China at this moment -- they basically score you based on things like what you purchase on the internet for example (i.e. if you purchase diapers and other household items online, then you get higher points because it shows you are taking care of your family's needs whereas if you buy some popular video game online then you get lower points because it means you are being lazy and obsessed with playing games rather than doing something productive with your life)....and also things you do everyday because China has state of the art cameras installed in various places to monitor what people say, do, etc. If your score is consistently low (meaning you are not a perfect, good, upstanding citizen), then you could be "blacklisted" and basically banned from receiving basic services -- i.e. if you try to eat at a restaurant, they can refuse to serve you, merchants can refuse to sell you stuff, etc. It sounds too ridiculous to be true but it's something that the Chinese government themselves actually confirmed is in place currently (though how tightly it is being implemented and adhered to is another story)...
Cripes almighty the Chinese government is freaking ridiculous. Do they not have better things to worry about over there? Is no one starving? This is what the old farts in power are wasting their time on?? I love Annie Yi's quote...she really nailed it. It sounds like a bunch of ugly old men just being jealous and acting out cuz they are corrupt with power. So sick.
@diana80 That is the whole point of dating a popular actor. She has nothing to lose even it the dates turn out to be a failure.
It leaves a lot to be desired seeing these men on variety and game shows, promos, interviews and concerts and not knowing if these males are men or women. I am not talking about wearing a unisex pair of shoes, pants or top. I am also not talking about men having a petite body and a natural soft facial structure. I am talking about idols wearing heavy makeup, dress to the nines in feminine attire and even surgically altering their facial structure for a more girly looking face. That is so misleading to the millions of young boys who idolize these men. They follow everything their idols do, and will think this direction is the norm. I Iike and respect your comment.
@kidd Willian Chan doesn't look effeminate. Maybe in series with thick make up and all, maybe yes. Outside he is mor bad dresser than effeminate. And even if he is so what?!
Next, a ban on masculine looking women? Maybe a ban on plastic surgery for unnatural looks? If Jpop adopts the same ban, gone are the jpop groups. Entire kpop can close shop. Whatever the sexuality, etc, idols are about image. Before camera, everything is an act, an image. A male idol may wear make up etc, but when on vacation, may not be that way. China is communists but when did they follow the path of ISIS? I am no fan of effiminate looks or less than masculine looks but to regulate that is insane.
Good choice Tracy! It would have been a waste of time for her to stay at TVB.
@kidd I could not agree with your comment more. However you miss my point. What I was saying is a lot of these idols go around looking like girls , deliberatelyI might add. When questions arise about their sexuality, they are ready to sue any and everyone. Why go out of your way to look like a woman if you are not gay or transgendered, especially knowing how most chinese feel about homosexuals and transgenders. I can see why the girly look can be considered a negative influence on the youth, as they copy everything their idols do. Trust me, not all gays are girly either. Some have a more manly demeanor than the straight guys. I also know a lot of men who have beards and they are so manly., but the beards are just an insurance policy. Then there are men who choose not to hide behind a beard, and have a male partner, and no one will believe these manly men are gay.
@m0m0 here here!
@kmfayb I agree with Kidd, there are so many actors that is HAF (hot as f) and had smouldering chemistry with their female Co-star, and he’s gay! The actor who acted as Gaston in the new beauty and the beast is a good example of that (watch the alienist and you know what I’m talking about). How people express themselves should not be restricted. You want people to act as man, dress as man. Are you saying straight man can’t love womanly fragrances? When the womanly fragrances, boil down to its core is just nicely smell stuffs! It likes saying straight boys can’t in love with flower and gardening! Again, the problem you are trying to address is self-esteem, we need to educate people that you should love the natural features you were born with, instead of feel pressured to look like a girl or a man because society said so! A ban will not educate anything but making people discriminate against people who has a taste beyond the norms!
@kmfayb I disagree with you concept of gay men. Gay men come in all shape and sizes just like straight men. Some like to be flamboyant while some fit the description of manly man to a T. I was very surprised when I found out one actor is gay. He looks so straight and manly. But, he has been in a steady relationship with a man for 2 decades. Same with straight men. Some really don't have attraction to member of the same sex, but, they like 'feminine' things.
@m0m0 I totally agree with you and cannot put it in better words. Everyone should be free to express themselves and be who they are provided it does not bring harm to others and it's what they truly feel/want (not mandated by people in authority).
why should there be a ban? everyone's free to express the way the like. what i don't agree if to follow the foot steps of others. i don't mind effeminate bbs but just don't copy, be original
Why isn't Hugo Wong getting more attention? He's a much better actor than Benjamin, and the majority of male actors on TVB's current roster. He's not bad looking either. His roles have also been very versatile.
@bubbles23 I was so disappointed by this news when it first broke out. He had so much potential. I really enjoyed all his scenes with Michael.
@littlefish at this time, nobody wants to have any connection to her even to just a bit to stay out of the gov's attentions. Although it is just a simple birthday greeting, but at least these people are with her for support.
@kidd I agree that William Chan does not look girly in any way. He has a soft face that women appreciate, and I guess some men too. We all know that Chinese men tend to be petite as opposed to their Western counterparts. Asian men are slenderly built, and the entertainers, even more so. They have to prevent that sort of image to the public, and that is the case with artists all over the world. Society demands that waif like look from both men and women in the entertainment business. Some might blabber on about men have their right, and gay men this and that. Gay men do dress like women and some of them wear perfumes that are catered to women. That has become their signature look and no one bats an eyelash at it anymore. Well, unless these men are gay, which they say they aren't, then it boggles the mind why they want to look like women, Even some of them getting facial surgery o look like women. Is it hilarious and sad at the same time, to go to a boy band concert, and not know if they are male or female. No matter how soft and gentle a man's face is, one should be able to identify him as a man. Sometimes the only way you recognize the idols as men is by their Adams Apple. If that is how they can be recognized as men, then "Houston, we have a problem. Then again, some women loooooove them like that. If a young woman brought home a man looking more girly than her, and wearing make up and girly clothes, any parents in their right mind would ask their daughter if she is gay.
@m0m0 yes and no. Saying happy birthday online is a mere showcase to the world, it doesn’t say much about irl. You can say it’s brave of them to show the world they support her, but she could also have other friends who worry for her irl, do things for her irl without the media knowing. The authority would be paying more attentions to these people than the “loud drum empty bucket” that merely post happy birthday online. Anyway, while she was famous, it seems she isn’t in good term with a lot of artists, before they might wish her happy birthday to keep the relationship, now you can get why lol. Anyway, anyone could log on her acc if she gave them her pw. If she was to dispel the rumour that she’s in jail, a birthday celebration will be best, but nada!
Does anybody need a new contract? They will win King or Queen.
@bubbles23 I'm glad that someone mentioned Jack Hui. I've like him since Mr.HK and always felt bad for him that he didn't get much promotion even when other Mr.HK winner did. He started out poor in acting, but, worked hard to improve and it showed in his later performance such that the effeminate chef in 'Love As A Predatory Affair'. I'm glad that 'Lo and Behold' gave him a breakthrough. He'is kinda busy with 'Lo and Behold' and other side activities he does with Mandy Lam now. Sitcom regular cast seldom have time for big roles in other series. Maybe after the sitcom ended he will get to play bigger roles in other series. He will be in the upcoming series 'Fist Fight'.
I don't know why everyone is so negative about this list (except for Joel Chan). To me, all the above actors can act. Even Bejamin Yuen, who I always think is a block of wood has shown great improvement in 'Stealing Seconds' and actually impressed me. Owen Cheung and Matt Yeung have proven to be versatile and can play varied characters, while Hubert is raw talent.
TVB needs to promote actors and actresses within each generation. 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. So that they'll always have a backup and leading material should they "graduate" from the company. They used to do youth dramas that features up-and-coming siu sangs, but they haven't done that for a while.
I don't think William Chan look effeminate at all. He didn't even look girly in that curly braided fringe in 'Legend of Zu'.
@littlefish right on!
Impressive! I hope people learn from Fala that a budget is NOT important for good storytelling. TVB should learn from her. And good on Fala for diversifying her market.
@kmfayb you're right, it stirs up social unrest and disturbs tranquility among the chinese people. so yeah, it should be banned, just not yet.
a merely birthday greeting could tell who your true friends are during difficult times.
@anon She shot the film while in school.
@bubbles23 Haha...exactly what i thought. She also got many opportunities after dating Kenneth.
There are a few things here, that is beyond the whole dressing like girls for the fans. 1 - the most beautiful woman has a lot of boyish feature in them, and vice versus. That’s why a blend of this make one attractive. You see them as wearing makeup, the artist see it as a way to enhance the attractive feature (bigger eyes, higher nose bridge, etc). Girls can use makeup to look better and not man, and we keep going on how we want equality, wouldn’t this ban basically make man less equal? 2 - the effect of plastic on our hormones: apparently even the BPA free stuffs are now appeared to be just as harmful as normal plastic stuffs. And with our long exposure to plastic, and the unknown (but now surface) microplastic, we are now leaning toward effeminate. Men start to have effeminate traits, not sure about the effect on women (but it seems to be less fertile). 3. Why is it wrong for man/boy to dress girly? If it looks good, it should be fine, no? After all, it is just a dress, a facade. Why are we worried about one’s appearance instead of whether that person is a good person or not? Whether that person has done right by the society? Gay men can’t show they are good people? I do understand if you argue the ban is to stop kids from worrying about their appearance and felt forced to be girly to have a big fandom, however, The other side of the coin is a lot worse if you were to put such ban in place. What happen to strike for the balance? And there are a lot more reasons why we like effeminate (environmental factors)
I thought she is venturing inHollywood. Why is she still getting involved in HK?
Fala: Congratulations! It is a very good start for you to use what you have learned in your Master's degree program at Julliard School. Keep up your good work.
Love love love Louis, so humble and amazing all around. A great role model for the younger generations
@anon Actors are filming series back-to-back with no sleep (hence, the tired eyes/ monotone voice I see in Benjamin), with no time to reflect on their own acting skills. They are just going to film studio after film studio to fulfill their contract, and not focusing on acting skills. I've said this before, but TVB needs to provide their actors and actresses continuing education on acting, film, theater, etc. either through courses or/and live coaching on set.
Jacqueline is the next Grace Chan. Talks too much and does too little, as in poor acting.
@kmfayb effeminate guys have human rights too!
@kmfayb There is a demand so there is a supply. The agencies as producers and fans as the customers. Idols are heavily manufactured products they sell to the masses. And since it works, well, they keep doing it. Boy idol groups are targeting girls while girls group are targeting boys fans. If those idol wannabe don't want to follow the rule of their agency (like no dating, no controversy, must have clean cut image) they can get lost. There are thousands replacement waiting. Few years ago, few people in Western countries had heard of K-pop. Then came Gangnam style and now idols is billion dollar business.
Wait a tick, Victoria Secret is supposed to be sexy lingerie . Seeing that the government is supposed to be so 'Traditional' in it's value system, (yeah righ), how come it did not put a ban on VS entering the country and even having display shows. I guess even corrupt men looove to see women in sexy lingerie. Those dirty corrupt vermin are usually sex fiends.
@llwy12 I don't care for chinese government officials in the least. I abhor their policies and the way they dictate their citizens. I hate their hypocrisy, their cold ruthlessness and penchant for offing their people, hence my worry for Fan Bingbing. I can write a few books about these real life vampires, and I'm sure you can too. However, it is mind boggling as to why these entertainers go out of their way to present themselves to the public looking like women. So many small teen aged boys look up to, and sadly worship these men. They have so much influence on the really young generation. The young boys will think it is the norm and pretty cool to look like their idol, resulting in many of them even getting plastic surgery to achieve the girly look. These guys will scream bloody hell and want to sue if rumors surface that they are gays. Then if they are not, why are they dressing and going out of their way to look like women. The effeminate concert ban is the only thing thing that I am not against in China.
Trailer looks good . Hope it becomes a classic . It’s been a long time since hk produced a classic movie
@passingby I basically have no words....if the above are the "new line of leading actors," then yes, TVB truly is doomed....the "current generation" of TVB artists (with the exception of a small handful) have already proven that they're incapable of taking the reins from the previous generation, yet the "newer generation" has even less talent, which means things are only going to get way worse. All I'm going to say is -- if TVB gets to the point where they become a complete embarrassment like ATV ended up being (and it's not a stretch to say that they are quickly reaching that point), I would prefer they take the exit route rather than continue floundering about aimlessly as they've been doing in recent years...at the very least, it would save us veteran HK entertainment junkies the heartache of having to see yet another crucial part of the industry die a slow and painful death...
@coralie Not surprised, as Mainland China bans alot of things that most ordinary people in their right minds would not ban. I mean, this is the same country that has officially banned cartoon character Peppa Pig (because the Chinese government claims it "promotes a slacker lifestyle") and also banned everyone's favorite bear Winnie the Pooh (because people were using Pooh bear in memes to mock China's leader Xi Jinping due to the president's supposed physical resemblance to the bear -- anything that makes Xi look bad is considered "subversive")....and those are just 2 recent examples (amongst many)....I don't see how Peppa or Pooh are harming the general population either, but it obviously doesn't matter what we or the general population think, since the CCP (aka Chinese government) will censor whatever it wants to, regardless if it makes any sense or not, which is of course unfortunate...
@jimmyszeto @bubbles23 @passingby Joel has been with Tvb for over 20 years. It's such a pity that he only start to get promoted to lead status recently compared to many siu sungs fandans, who had joined the entertainment industry for only a short amount of time but had already been heavily promoted to leading status by Tvb.
@jimmyszeto that's unfortunate. He was promising in his acting.
Excited because it's produced by So Man Chung!
@bubbles23 The rising cop from Line Walker 2? Good suggestion! The guy has already been sacked for sexual harassment of his costar from the series....
Benjamin is like Sharon Chan, mediocre acting with no sign of improvement. TVB needs to beef up their leading actresses as well. Natalie is not ready as one, Samantha worse, hopefully will see less of Grace Chan now that she is married.
The trailer looks exciting and most of the cast acting good though Benjamin's acting pales in comparison. The biggest concern is the final production, especially since we are talking about current TVB drama storyline, story execution and editing quality.
Even this group of rising actors are over 30 y/o. Joel is probably the same age as Ruco. Only Hubert is under 30. Tvb really needs more young blood and young faces. Even though Joel and Benjamin got the wcting experience, their age shows when they smile. I don't understand why they don't experiment with casting different actors. Some guys who went through the Mr. HK path are barely promoted. Jack Hui and the guy who played the rising cop in Line Walker 2 don't get more meaty roles even with memorable roles.
More respect to Louis, great actor, great looks, familial son, always humble and gives back to the community. Great role model
What a weak line of anniversary series this year. Hopefully Fist Fight is good though as it is the only series that seems promising in the lineup. Meanwhile, it's still quite early to predict who would be this year's TV King and Queen. But for TV King, both Roger and Wayne show their solid performance as usual. As for TV Queen, i still can't think of anyone as of now.
@llwy12 16 episodes in, already had William Hu, Sheren and Lawrence Ng as guest stars in different episodes. More to come from this chilled out sitcom!
Whoever made this decision is either a closeted gay or extremely conservative & close-minded. Effeminate men wouldn't be a trending style if there wasn't popular demand for it. I say this even though I'm not a fan of 'effeminate' men makeup-wearing men myself. I also don't see how it's harming the general population. Also, William Chan is NOT an effeminate guy. I find him in the category of Ron Ng and maybe Huang Xiao Ming. They're stylish men, but not girly. Although if you consider stylish as a general 'effeminate' thing to do, then I have no words.
The plot will disappoint 9/10 times.
@msxie0714 I don't think that will happen anytime soon in the USA. The corporations there are deep in the pockets of politicians.
I agree with this ban!
@kmfayb Anyone who thinks William Chan is effeminate should watch the upcoming drama ‘Age of Legends’
I really hope that China government can give clarity soon regarding Fan Bing Bing.
I feel sorry for him. I mean to see your beloved family in jail or prison or under house arrest is scary and painful.
If this is true, then I am glad. If you are feminine naturally it's okay. But if you alter your face to look feminine then it's not okay. Be proud of who you are.
Thank God that In most countries in this world, anyone has the freedom to make their money and earn their keeps. It is called Democracy. Even small poor cou NBC tries have that freedom, which is great. The day America's government starts restricting how much money its people can make, we'll know they have sold out to China. That will be worse than losing a loved one. That would be the end of the world as we know it.
This is ridiculous if it is true. Not a fan of Kpop but see no need to ban. The entertainment is a creative industry and it cannot grow if it is too restrictive to the point of straitjacket conformity. What a pity.
haha. reminds me of that picture of what Japanese male celebrities in the 60s look like compared to modern day.
@davy haha,LMAO. If that happens, China will have only 2 % of natural entertainers. If Hong Kong, Taiwan Japan and Korea decide to follow, only 2% natural celebrities from each country will be entertaining us. Ooohhh the horror!.
There ought to be a cap on the astronomical salaries of American CEOS.
@anon many american netizens also seem gripe that Hollywood celebs and sports figures make too much money.
@passingby ben’s acting has not improved at all over the years, still so mediocre
@olivegarden I too don't think William Chan looks deliberately feminine. He has soft, natural features. He does not purposefully add anything to boost his appearance in a feminine way.
@jimmyszeto I've stated I don't support her if she really did commit tax evasion. I just think there are alot more we don't know and it could be that she stepped on some government's toe. Also, why don't they bring down the corrupted officials first? Those who know the laws and in power should be punished first and receive heavier punishments. However, they are the ones getting away(most). And that is what happen in every country though.
And when would the government put plastic surgery idols in trouble? Everyone is trying to become plastic dolls if they should ever have the money to go do it. Not likely ever going to happen because 99% idols today are all plastic. So that would mean weeding each and everybody out.
Going around deliberately looking like a girl is not manly or appealing either. Who said that raping and beating women is manly?. God, whew! ,why would any woman, or man think such nonsense. Why would any woman in her right mind think to want a man who goes around asserting his masculinity by beating or raping women, duh? I know Eric Tsang is not a nice man, but I never knew him to rape or beat anyone although the beating the wife to keep her in line would not surprise me ,as he and a lot of the big guns with subservient wives are very 'traditional', and that is not something WCL would do. I also can't figure out why a young woman would want a man who wears more makeup than her and whose earring collection is bigger than hers. His hair is longer, and the wife or girlfriend can borrow his clothes, and no one will know the difference. I do agree with the ban on men performing looking and smelling more girly than the real, naturally biological girls
Lol this ban is so ridiculous. Must be coming from those insecure and fragile masculinity men to propose such ban. Macho apperance is not equal to being manly.
That’s gonna impact A LOT of artists lol
Yes! I hope the plot will not disappoint lol
Kara Kara Kara!!! Trailer Looks good!
Do they prefer macho men who assert their 'masculinity' by beating and raping upstart females?
Joel has the most talent and Owen has the charisma to potentially become the next TVB star...
@italin He already admitted he used sunbeds though doesn’t need them much to maintain his tan
@kmfayb ..."If you are a man, even if you are a midget like WCL or Eric Tsang, be proud to be a man. Im sick of mrn going out of their way to look girly, especially if they are not gay. Then again the silly girlfans like them looking like that." Very well said! Couldn't agree more.
Poor Fan Chengcheng. This case with his sis.... With Fan Bingbing was going to affect his career sooner than later. So many of you here along with myself said it would. I really feel for him. I agree with one thing that the chinese government has done, and I thougt I would never see this day. I too believe too many asian idols are going about looking like women. If you look soft and girlish by nature, you can't blame yourself. But to go around, altering your facial structure, wearing makeup and growing your hair long a nvm f wearing girly clothes is preposterous. Actuslly there are these two pretty boys that for awhile, I thought they transitioned from girl to boy, heheha. Before anyone say I'm crazy, it can happen. Two idols are married to men who have not had the final snip . If you are a man, even if you are a midget like WCL or Eric Tsang, be pround to be a man. Im sick of mrn going out of their way to look girly, especially if they are not gay. Then again the silly girlfans like them looking like that.
@elizabeth yeah, the only tvb series i’m looking forward to this year
I like Hubert and Owen.
joel - baddie look all the time, can’t see him act as a variety of characters hubert - alright, not much to say owen - too soon? give it another 3 years and i’ll say he’ll be good matt - don’t really have an opinion, not really that fond of him leading a drama benjamin - acting isn’t all that good, haven’t improved at all. he’s only got the face and body
If it was down to those two, then my vote goes to Roger. But I still think David and Wayne are good contenders. And we still have Vincent to come.
Not a fan of the effeminate look at all. Anyway, William Chan never looks effeminate to me, but agree that the TFBOYS and those EXO members do look feminine.
@wm2017 Me too. I always watched a drama by skimming the beginning episodes and then stop or watch the last episode. I started watching The Stunts because someone in here commented that the actor was hot. I think I skimmed The Stunt from Ep1-Ep9 and then somehow I was really interested in the main couple’s love that I actually finished the whole drama. It was rare for me to actually wait for each episode each day. I’m glad you are enjoying it.
This is kind of funny.
@mangotango Hey sorry1 I made a Typo. It was Liu Xiao Qing who played Empress Wu and Empress Cixi ages ago.
He is one of my fave. Good looking and very cool guy. Always wonder if he tan himself all the time. As I remember he used to be very fair.
@jessehsuan ohhh He's married? haha lol I didnt goggle him to see the full bio. My mom watches TVB but she's transitioning into China series more and more these days but she heard of him being a veteran stars son so she wanted to watch. lol... I glimpsed thru when I visited her and I thought it was pretty interesting to see a plot on the ppl who do stunts. So I am watching it online. Thought he was really cool on the first episode and I like refreshing plots and also not seeing the same faces again and again. I like it so far even thou there really isnt alot of romance from the leads but it has some nice side stories from the other actors. I usually watch 2 3 episodes and stop. But The Stunt I am still going after epi 10. Hope it will be interesting til the end. :)
TVB is definitely doomed if those are the "new" faces they're going to promote . Ben is already heavily promoted but his acting still sucks. Joel has this villain look that he can't shake off even when he's acting as a good guy, not going to be looking forward to him in lead roles. The others are just bland.
@wm2017 Yes, Shaun is one of the best that TVB recruits in recent years. I like Revecca but most of the characters she portrayed before, I haven’t like and forgettable. The Stunt wasn’t great, but I was really invested in Dai Chi and May Chu’s love. I love their onscreen chemistry, a little lacking from Rebecca maybe since Shaun has a wife and two kids. I read that their kissing scenes were film the day after his son was born. Hope they reunite in a drama again!
@jessehsuan me too... I love seeing refreshing faces and he's pretty ok to watch. I never like that leading girl in any series but she was actually also ok in there as this tomboyish girl who crushed on Shaun's character. I thought their chemistry is lacking but still not a bad paired up.
Joel is the only the best actor of those listed above. Benjamin has the face and body but that is his disadvantage as he cares too much on his looks! The rest are not leading status-no charisma! For example: Bowie Lam doesn’t have the looks but he’s charismatic and make his character swoon-worthy. TVB drama will be flop if they are the one leading.
@anon Yesss! I miss him on the small screen.
@anon I've followed him since his pre-tan days, but his role in ASITP was definitely one of the most memorable. I've watched that series a dozen times, and can't think of anyone more fit for the character of Hong Siu-lung than Louis.
Joel is defiantly the best actor of those listed above right now. Matt's been in the industry for a long time, I kinda feel bad for him missing out on the "Most Improved" award until last year, though I don't see him leading any big productions any time soon. Owen's not bad himself, but I still don't think he's ready yet. Maybe in another 5 years. I don't even know what to say about Benjamin. I'm pleasantly surprised at Hubert's acting skills. I remember watching The Voice and thinking that he has no personality. He did well in Exorcist and did a total 180 with his BDSM rich boy in My Ages Apart. But I still think he should focus on his singing.
Good actor. Good looking. Amazing human being! Been following him since I watched A Step Into the Past. One of my favourite actors of all-time.
Joel Chan is the only one that can act out of this "new" crop of leading actors. Benjamin Yuen wasn't bad in Line Walker 2, but that one decent performance shouldn't justify him as leading material. He was just average in Another Era. The rest are forgettable.
@anon I agree with that too which is similar to the soccer capping of international players and wages.At one point chinese soccer teams funded by rich Chinese businessmen were paying ridiculous fees and wages to bring in world class players from all around the world while local players were on tiny salaries. It was good that tax was increased massively and teams became more reluctant to pay huge fees.
@kmfayb It is a mix of many reasons. Some chinese citizens are delusional, some -their patriotism are generated through decades of fear of the Govt, some are uneducated and believe the propaganda they are taught, some just follow the rest of people around them in the ‘I love China’ belief and many have even set foot outside the country to make comparisons . There are plenty who have moved abroad as immigrants because China could not give them what they wanted but they continue to boost China is best at this and that regarding army, weapons, Olympic medals etr. In reality they want to be proud of their country but deep down most know that there are major flaws. Not surprised with the new restrictions and no matter how ridiculous, the citizens have to follow and that’s how the country is run...
@m0m0 "Good, healthy things per definition of the chinese government". LMAO. I am at a lost for words, a NBC d that doesn't happen to me. They say a nation follows its leaders, those in positions of authority. I now see why the chinese fans, and citizens on a whole are so delusional and live in wonderland, or fantasy Island. They learn to be delusional from the government, hahahe. Any one , chinese, or foreigner, knows there is nothing good about the chinese government. Even the notion of not promoting an entertainer or their work if they score below 60% is in itself ruthless and cut throat. This is too funny, my laugh for the weekend. Got to love Hollywood, even if you don't like it. Artists have no promotional redtrictions, they are not held back from making little or lots of money. Who knows the large, orange buffoon might now take a page out of China's book as far as promoting entertainers.
@m0m0 I agree that the Chinese government should curb the salary of celebrities. It's ridiculous how much celebrities get paid per drama/movie. In regards, to other stuff, I am on the fence.
I always find sequels disappointing. Better to make a drama?
Very raw, but there’s potential. I love his confrontation with Er Qing.
@terrycrews19 ha, don't give that orange orangutan sitting in the White House any ideas, lol.
@m0m0 haha. if they did this on American celebrities, more than half of them would receive 0. should be renamed to communist superstar report.
@jimmyszeto Too bad there are so few episodes available – it’s a fun series so definitely need to watch it in its entirety to get the full experience! :-) Yea, both Gallen and Roger were new (and under the same manager, which is why they were in so many series together back then)….the irony is that both of them debuted as “singers” (their manager was famous lyricist Jim Lo) so they didn’t get formal acting training (which I guess partially explains why their acting was so raw at the time), but later made more of a name for themselves as actors. Definitely agree that Joan Tong was so pretty in that series, but then again she was always one of the prettier MHKs from back in those days (saw her attend a Wai Yin event recently and was surprised to see that she looked so much older than she did just a few years back...maybe it was just the camera angle, lol). Aww, I miss Ho Wai Lung – he was such a brilliant actor….his portrayal of So Chung in that series is absolutely iconic! Yea, not surprised that there were conflicts amongst the cast…aside from the Deric/Spencer conflict, Deric also had a huge falling out with May Ho later on….love Deric as an actor but boy, his personal life and relationships were always such a mess….
@coralie I rarely believe people when they say they don't believe in marriage or want to get married. It's usually just a case of not having met the right person.
@davy I think @funnlim was referring to his facial expressions (or lack, thereof) rather than his character. You can maintain a consistent character, while still being dynamic with your expressions. In fact, that's one of the most essential components of good acting, IMO. Xu Kai fell flat in that he carried the same sullen face, whether he was feeling happy, sad, angry etc... there was no transition or variation; no depth or passion. That said, I didn't feel compelled to fast forward any of his scenes, and considering he IS a rookie, there's a lot of hope for improvement.
@llwy12 Yes. City Japes is such a calm, relaxing sitcom to watch. Too bad only 50 or so episodes are uploaded so far. Back then Roger and Gallen were still trying to make ends meet in terms of providing living and food expenses.Joan Tong was so young and pretty back then. I remember 何偉龍 was brilliant as the trouble maker neighbour in the series. It wasn't all as rosy as it seemed within the cast because based on Spencer's recent accounts, he became very popular with the fans just like Deric Wan and a magazine suddenly put his face on the front cover instead of Deric and his GF. Deric flew into a rage over it which made it become awkward for them when acting as brothers again in 'Looking Back in Anger'.
@hohliu i heard this on a radio show, they were talking about this rating. the gov feels that the entertainment had been expanding with many young celebrities making more money in a single drama than one can earn in a lifetime. so the gov. got together w/ 5 different institutions including the major media outlets and film arts institutions to come up w/ this rating. any celebrity who with a failing score (score below 60), the gov advises to not promote them or any of their work. among the 100 celebrities, only 7 passed. the rating is calculated from philanthropy, past work for example, if a film that they were casted in promoted ideas that the gov supports such as recycling, family basically all the good, healthy things per definition of the chinese gov., and also their role in the film, villain vs the good guy (negative points for villain roles and plus for the good guy role)
@llwy12 Agree, he had the same bland expression throughout the entire series. Definitely one of the weakest links amongst the cast. Acting-wise, Lawrence outshone him in nearly every aspect... I wish their roles had been reversed. I'm also of the opinion that Wu Jinyan and the emperor had much more chemistry; partly due to the writing, and partly due to Nie Yuan's ability to emote.
@jimmyszeto Ah, City Japes – one of my favorite TVB sitcoms of all time! (I had watched that series so many times that at one point, I actually had the dialogue for entire episodes memorized, lol!). Yes, Gallen was absolutely horrible in that series (those were his “block of wood” days, lol)….Roger wasn’t bad, though that series definitely wasn’t one of his best performances (I would recommend his other 80s series, such as The Final Verdict or all the ones where he was actually lead). Deric Wan was really the one to watch in that series along with all the supporting cast -- his family in the series, his colleagues at work – Law Ching Ho as Victor stood out the most, etc. (added element was that Deric and his romantic co-star in the series May Ho were actually dating in real life during that time, so that brought quite a bit of hype to the series back then). That was also Spencer Leung’s breakout role (to this day, most audiences still only remember him as his character in that series, Sai Mai Wah). One of the things I love most about that series though was the plethora of guest stars that popped in and out of the series (which was one of the biggest “features” of TVB sitcoms back in the 80s/early 90s that I sorely miss) – so definitely keep an eye out for all the famous faces because there will be plenty!
@ivan The rumor of Astro and Starhub being cancelled has been out there since end of July. This corresponded with the shutting down of TVBI (TVB’s international arm that is responsible for organizing overseas content distribution and promotion) in June and laying off around 60 employees from that department. In 2 separate interviews over the past month, TVB’s CEO Mark Lee alluded to the fact that they will be cutting all “extraneous expenditures” that include purchasing expensive broadcast rights to sporting events (hence the reason why ViuTV ended up with the rights to World Cup this year) and also other unnecessary overseas events in markets that would distract their focus away from their target markets of HK and Mainland China (he didn’t come right out and say it, but speculation is that the other “overseas events” refers to the events previously organized by TVBI, such as Starhub and Astro Awards). As of today, TVB has yet to officially confirm or deny whether the awards are cancelled and the organizers in both Malaysia and Singapore have said they have not received word from TVB either way. So no, there is no official confirmation as of yet that the awards are cancelled...however majority opinion at this point tends to lean toward the rumor being true because TVB has kept suspiciously hush-hush about it since July. As a point of reference — just last month (in August), there were rumors that TVB was cancelling the Anniversary Gala (the one that usually takes place every November to commemorate their anniversary) and instead replacing it with a “shopping event” for their new Big Big Shop….within DAYS of that rumor first surfacing, TVB management quickly came out and squashed it by confirming that the Gala will proceed as usual but they will also have the Big Big Shop event, it will just be done at a different time (NOT replacing the Gala). TVB was quick to stamp out the rumors about the Anniversary Gala being cancelled, yet it’s been more than a month since the Astro and Starhub award rumor came out but they have not bothered to clarify that one….also, it’s interesting to note that they have already confirmed all the other rumors from the last couple months about laying off employees (latest tally is around 700 staff will either lose their jobs or be transferred to other positions), disbanding athletic/sports department (already happened back in July), shutting down “unused” sections of their studio (confirmed in Mark Lee’s interview with HKEJ on 8/27), discontinuing TVB Weekly Magazine (end date already confirmed – 10/1 issue will be the last), etc., yet they have yet to offer anything concrete about the other awards….
@sherla1019 Outburst was one of the few disappointing series starring Deric Wan. It was cheap and cases were real poor...
@jimmyszeto City Japes dont remember that one I'm currently watching Outburst -900 重案追兇 starring Derick lawrence Ng and Jessica Hsuan its okay not bad The new series that are coming out with the rising stars dont really catch my attention at all
Have her allegations ever been proven in the court of law? I suppose it doesn't really matter at this point. It's been 3 months since the incident unfolded, yet she hasn't publicly acknowledged the incident shows in the eyes of many that what was reported is indeed true. If she runs away from China, that would be even worse for her public image as it may be seen as treasonous and she may never be allowed to return to China again. For better or worse, she needs to publicly acknowledge the incident.
They should've never made sequels.
@hohliu Don't think the report matters but FBB's image will be finished in the eyes of the public no matter what therefore the social responsibility reading is quite accurate. I know in the west if a celebrity had committed some form of crime there will be flocks of colleagues and fellow celebrities coming forward to defend his/her character. I can't read chinese so can't research but I doubt any of her colleagues have come out to defend FBB. Most will look to cut ties in case their own image is harmed.
In the 2017-18 China Film and Television Star Social Responsibility Report, conducted by Chinese officials which has since been released, Fan Bingbing earned a rating of zero for social responsibility. What is this rating for? Who have high rating ? Communist rules things differently.
@jessehsuan Natalie Tong won best actress last year. Does anyone remember or care? She is not Best Actress in our eyes because so it doesn't matter what she wins. Same goes for this year's awards...
@birdy2415 I like Shaun in the Stunt, but he is far from best actor! TVB award is a joke now! They nominate all their employees as best actor and best actress!
@sherla1019 I'm re-watching 'City Japes', Roger's first series some 30 years ago which has been uploaded online now. It is fun to see how horrendous Roger and Gallen was when they first began their career. Literally reciting lines from the script as if they were holding the script itself. Even Spencer Leung was better. Deric Wan naturally talented and acting with ease even though he was just as new at the time....
roger all the way for TV king i'll pass on the upcoming series thaank god they also uploaded alot of old tvb series on web
It’s always Roger vs a rising star lol
@yummiki24 yeah, rubbish like somebody said.
He has pretty eyes.
Unlikely anniversary dramas, but can't judge before I've watched. Can't be worse than what TVB has produced so far this year right? I mean TVB is already rock bottom. The've managed to be worse than last year which was alread bad enough. Not familiar with Shaun. Unimpressed with the first episode of "The Stunt" so I vote for Roger but I haven't watch "Another Era" either. From what I've seen, John Chiang's the one. But this year's a joke. As much as I like Alice & Ali, their performance is far from TV Queen status.
@passingby is it true that tvb is stopping overseas award show ? Any sources ??
A Paramedics series and a lawyer series consisting a handful of newbies. These types should be shown in January and February during the dull, quiet times of the year....
what a terrible line of anniversary series
No worthy contender. All rubbish. Winning tv king or queen is no big deal if the contenders are all weak. Tvb should scrap it this year like it did for Starhub and Astro overseas.
@dalebaines I completely agree! Wu Jinyan definitely had more chemistry with Nie Yuan as the emperor than she did with Xu Kai....I actually found it refreshing the way the relationship between Emperor Qianlong and Wei Yingluo played out in the series and how their relationship wasn't a conventional one...watching the two of them interact, it was quite enjoyable and -- dare I say it -- fun, yet still serious where it needed to be...such a contrast to the super melodramatic / depressing / boring way those types of relationships are usually portrayed in most other palace series. As for Xu Kai -- he was decent as Fuheng but acting-wise, mostly expressionless and stiff....If we're talking about younger actors in the series, I prefer Lawrence Wong (the actor who played Hailancha) over Xu Kai, as Lawrence had more depth in terms of expressions and didn't come across as one-note....also loved his storyline with Mingyu (the actress who portrayed her did an excellent job as well). In terms of the acting, definitely Qin Lan as Empress Fucha and Nie Yuan as the Emperor were the most natural...enjoyed both of their portrayals tremendously! Wu Jinyan was pretty good too (especially for a semi-newbie playing such a tremendous role), but less natural in my opinion...her acting in some scenes was too exaggerated and the way she said her dialogue at times , the pacing felt off (not a flawless performance by any means but overall she did well). Charmaine did well too (definitely one of her better performances to date -- referring to her performance in the second half mostly -- and pretty much blows everything she did at TVB out of the water), though I don't think her performance stood out much considering there were so many fine performances among the actresses who played the various Consorts (most of whom did really well with the exception of a few)...
roger for sure! and tv queen it’s got to be ali
Her dress is too revealing! Congrats to them!
@jayne I'm disappointed that he agreed to do this. It's not that he needs to do it. I hope he wasn't force into doing it. The reason I like our Chinese's movies/dramas more in general because they are not so wild like the westerners. We don't need rated R movies/dramas.
Wow I didn't recognise her. Am not a fan of the pixie cut on anyone. Least it can grow out...
There are very few people can work this pixie cut. It doesn't look very good on AB.
Roger all the way
@june agree. Well he does have that expressionless aura about him, and his face can become a blank, like the model catwalk stare. There is potential to grow as an actor. What I've learn is pretty boys with annoying boy and girl fans will get role , after role with little to no improvement in their acting. The reason is because they are there to bring in the besotted girl and boy fans. There are pretty boys and girls making mad money, but they have almost zero talent as actors and singers. Lets hope Xu Kai can add talent to his face and body.
@june He played his character well and made it interesting. The only unrealistic part I would complain about this show overall was that this guy wasn't too revengeful towards Ying Luo as he should be. I believe the director did that because of time limits. I'd imagined he was supposed to find every opportunity to kill her, and be in the show more often. Er Qing was good, she has the looks of a calm and mature woman and was really convincing as a nice and innocent lady. When she turned evil it was really shocking and she handled her evil acting really well too. Charmaine did well on her evil part but was a bit unconvincing and overdone at the beginning on trying to act nice.
@birdy2415 I just really want to see Ruco and Elaine together for some reason like I ship them and it always has to go wrong for them in all the dramas they were together in
I honestly want to see Ruco and Elaine paired up, I've always wanted them to be a serious couple or something in a drama because I've seen so many dramas where they are always like either Ruco playing her or they just aren't romantically involved. But when I was little the first drama I saw with Ruco Chan in it was.. lol forgot the name but I know he was somewhat romantically involved with Elaine and I just shipped it since then and now I really wanna see them togetherl in a drama where they both like each other for real! I just saw the new drama Ruco was in "Succession War" and again he and Elaine don't have a good romantic relationship again this time its just a one way love from Elaine UGHHHHH
@mangotango Not an excuse. There are plenty of people that get drunk who wouldn't force themselves on a woman or help their friend rape the woman as well.
@littlefish Some people are very good at leading double lives, so I wouldn't be surprised if his wife never saw this side of him.
@hayden Rape is rarely about sex, it's about the dominance and the violence. So it doesn't matter how good looking or how rich the person is or how he can easily access sexual partners...rapists usually get off on forcing their victims to comply. That's it. So don't let anyone's good looks fool you; ANYONE is capable of monstrous deeds.
@davy I actually thought Wu Jinyan had more chemistry with Nie Yuan than Xu Kai...I didn't know much about her character historically, but I stayed with the show because I liked Ying Luo's slowly developing romance with the emperor Qianlong. They worked really well together; I think I would rather see a show staring Wu Jinyan and Nie Yuan as a couple again rather than her and Xu Kai.
Alex must be thumping his chest right now crying about her marriage decision. He was so adamant that Stephy didn't want to get married. Turns out, she just doesn't want to get married to him. Gotta applaud her nerve in dating a guy for about a decade and never pulling the trigger on marriage.
Very happy for the two of them. Stephy deserves this happiness and Prince Chiu is a cool guy, his ex, Raine Yang has found her real prince charming, and this Prince deserves a girl to love too. I love his family. So in tune with reality and not screaming bloody hell because his girlfriend has the audacity to date their loved one who is ...gasp!!!, five years older. Why are these insipid media clowns griping about the five year age difference. Then again, they can only be what the rest of their society is. All the best to the couple.
@jimmyszeto Savage LOL
@kmfayb Just ask Francis Ng about his wife....
I would love for those reporters to interview the Baldwin Brothers, Robert De Niro, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Courtney Love, Charles Barkley, Will or Jada Smith or sean Penn and ask invasive, personal questions. They will wake up in the hospital, the reporters, that is.
Now I remember who it was that was asked such an invasive, personal question. It was Karena Ng when she started dating Ramon Lam .
It is so unfair to put down WCL's looks. All of us are not born tall. I don't find him ugly. He is a shory man with a typical broad chinese nose. A lot of Hong Kong men have that flat, broad nose. Women have it too. No matter what the child looks like, she was created out of their love, as a gift from God, and I believe they will both love their daughter. All daughters don't look like their fathers. Hanna looks nothing like Andy Lau. She is a Carol Zhu mini me.
@kmfayb The interviews in HK so cringeworthy. They will be talking about a wedding or a series then the interviewer would continuously attempt to sneak questions regarding the actors love life. If David Beckham arrived in Hong Kong, all they will ask him about will be about Victoria and hopefully he will reveal some sordid details. It's embarrassing. The media in Hong Kong is a disgrace and the demand/taste of the public is not very desirable...
Yaaawwwwnnn...............zzzzz.Wakes up for a moment. No talent, overrated, overpaid, undertalented...... Nothing to write home to mama about. Oh!, even fake beauty, don't let that girl near the stove, she'll melt, I tell ya, she'll melt. ......yaaawwnn, zzzzzz......
@windy good point there. I chuckled when I read your comment. FBB is not the only one doing the evasion thing. I smiled when you said the other big names must be worried now. There are so many of them involved in all kinds of corruption, from money laundering to tax evasion and God knows what else. Sometimes I want certain top 'gods' and 'goddesses' to get exposed, then I worry what it will do to their wordhippers. Fan Bingbings case is cotton candy compared to what they are up to.
@kidd A few fans blind support won't change the general perception of the public. China is a country all about patriotism and if the state decides that you have committed a crime, it would take a brave member of the public to support the criminal. Unless England where we can announce how much we hate our Government at any given time and the USA where they can call Trump any name they want. I have seen chinese peasants living a life of poverty but still believe in the 'I love China' phrase. If FBB has committed a crime, it won't matter if the crime is rife in the country; supporting her will be going against the country's supposed principles. I will be surprised if she does not retire from showbiz if charged....
@cutie777 the reporters in asia are so rude and uncouth. If they ask the Hollywood celebrities some of the questions they ask the homegrown ones, they would get punched out. I remember they asked someone if she is on birth control. Dont know if anyone can remember who was asked such a personal question. Anyway, no reporter should be asking anyone such a question. You are a reporter, not the woman's lover or doctor.
@birdy2415 you know right! The media is milking this engagement news for a buck, and using Nancy in the process. Man, that is cold and slimy. The delusional shippers started the Ruco and Nancy fake romance and the media saw a way to capitalize on it and make a buck. They and the rabid so called fans did not see the uncomfortable awkwardness they were creating. They need to leave Nancy alone.
Hope all her kids has leanne looks and height but have Cho lam artistic knowledge
@m0m0 Wong Cho Lam will dominate his daughters features like Jackie Chan dominating his daughter's features....
I feel bad for them. It's the netizens and the paparazzi who made things awkward for them. They were never interested in each other. They're not even compatible. People should just stop forcing their imaginations onto other people.
Leanne is certainly very beautiful and would be nice to have a daughter looking like her and height.
looks a bit indian but it looks good and a break through for her
Still not that attractive to me. Maybe she'll grow on me, like Angelina Jolie did. I used to think she was ooglay 'cause of her sausage lips. But she's gotten much prettier to me.
C'mon. WCL is not that ugly. He's constantly on TV for a reason. And I think having WCL's height is a good thing for a girl. You don't want to have too tall of a woman. It's hard to find eligible tall men. Also, I love the whole mentality switch in Asia now where everyone, men & women, are happy to have girls. That whole supply & demand thing is working its magic.
Love her shirt! Ruco made things so awkward now between them. They won't collab for probably another 5-10 years. That's probably best for both, since Ruco seems so adamant that he's not interested in Nancy. Same for Wu Yitian & Shen Yue, although in this case, Wu Yitian was exposed for saying [email protected] about Shen Yue. They will probably never collaborate again haha.
The whole story sucks!! Really!! Pakho Please go back to movies. Drama’s are to long for You. The plot is just bad. No shocking moments. Evrything was foresight. Who wrote This?!! Tvb need Some good new ideas, Because This years is worser then last year. I allready stop watching hkdrama’s. Instead of watching newest i’m Watching the older ones Step-in to the past. Great story. Everything is So detailright. Acting was superb!! And again the story was fantatstic!! Who can help Tvb!!
@june Agree. Hope it's in the pipeline.
Still like both of them in AFWFW. Memorable item in that drama. In real life, quite sure that both of them are not. Would love to see both of them in another smashing drama.
Charmaine teh bao yawn
Yeah lo pity her. Adui terrible la these paparazzi
@cutie777 AJ has thicker lips but the hair looks good on her. She has sharp features & beautiful eyes. Pixie cut suits her.
Xu Kai as Fuheng is cute, but so bland. Hong Yao on the other hand really moved me with his acting and I think he is very underrated. I'm hoping to see him act with Charmaine again.
Looks good. Sultry.
@sehseh "girlfriend beater" will be a really big turn off and there goes his career when it was just about to rise or begin. If, that rumor is true.
@funnlim That's called character. A character has to be consistent. What type of character would you be playing if all of a sudden you're a jolly stick, the next time we see you are in depression, then you became a gangster, president, beggar, etc.....Unless you're the main character and the audience can track all the things happen to you and reason them out. In this case, he's still very much more a side character. He pops in and pops out at times, he's got to be consistent with "who" he is playing as.
Lavish lifestyle, not so much. They're labeling him as girlfriend beater. Good looking, but expressionless actor.
If Yu Zheng is really going to pair them together again, please don't forget to add Nie Yuan and Qin Lan in there again. She had pretty good chemistry with Nie Yuan both on screen and real life as well. Maybe she won't get to be as smart in the next drama anymore, but hopefully she doesn't get too dumb. Not that I don't like dumb characters, but most actresses have big problems in pretending to be weaklings. Ying Luo is one of the smartest characters in C-drama world. It is very satisfying to see how she revenges instead of letting people off for no reason, just to let them do bad things again. Really, letting bad guys go mean you are worse than the bad guys! And I don't like to watch those who zips their mouth when they can be a help to tell the truth, that's why I like Ying Luo. I know the reality of life, people never have courage like that, they only have courage to speak ill of others but when it comes to speak the truth, they're not just cowards but inhumane. So, Ying Luo is of course very special, a 1 out of 1000 people so she won't be like others. Doesn't mean she is unrealistic, she's just extraordinary, meaning, she's not ordinary. Besides Xu Kai, even other people like Ming Yu, her fiancee and Yuan Chunwang stood out very much too. It is a very good show indeed.
@jessehsuan you’re not the only one, I dropped it after episode 10 because I couldn’t stand the main character. She was already annoying from the first episode, always blabbering and gets away with everything she does. How is that possible in a palace? It’s unrealistic to me.
Im probably the rare one who drop Story of Yanxi Palace because of the main character Wei Yingluo portrayed by Wu Jinyan. I love the rest of the cast, but it really annoys me how they wrote her character always talking recklessly and not being afraid of the royal family and concubines. Everyone is stupid except her!
@funnlim "I do feel his career is winding down as his love life is up. Tvb still not know how to use him." Ruco's career was very quiet this year. Just as he was rising to prominence in TVB, the company is hitting a ratings wall. As TVB is focusing on the Mainland Chinese market, it's trying to get bigger stars to headline the series that are backed with Mainland partners. It's such a shame that timing got in the way to prevent Ruco's career from growing bigger. "He doesn't know how to handle extreme publicity. I was turned off with how he handled his romance." He initially said Phoebe was only a friend who acted as his stylist because he was afraid of what exposure of the romance would mean. It is understandable given the circumstances, but fortunately he didn't try to hide his romance for too long. "But he's happy. Just 2 years? Hes ready to settle down and be a father." Ruco had a lot of missed opportunities with his exes married with children now. Perhaps his decision to get married now also shows that he's accepted his career is winding down and that family is most important in the end. He didn't want Phoebe to wait for him, like how his other exes waited, and eventually they broke up.
When is tvb releasing dic-ky series? That will save tvb. Maybe remake jttw. Beg jin yong perhaps? Film sequel to hit series? Do a small series? Revive legal series? Medical series?
Too busy with 2 palace dramas to watch this. Just showing on TV. That bad??
Frankly she should have run to usa. Now too late. I think her crime is beyond tax evasion. Everybody evades tax. It could be she knows but doesn't care about details. Who does anyway? When you have so much you hire an accountant. Accountant does everything I don't think shes that bright in finances rise? Maybe she opened some off shore account as well? I don't think it is greed. It is more like standard practice. Ruby lin should be careful. She also invests heavily.
@hetieshou serial offender? Can elaborate?
@hetieshou serial offender? Can elaborate?
@kidd maybe not in China but nothing to stop international release
Everyone evades tax. Some even surrender to their accountants and just blindly sign. Not sure fbb is which category. Perhaps just fine her a lot and let it be? I mean I can't imagine how she can survive prison! Is she really in prison??
@llwy12 I know what you mean, I just finished "another Era" series and it sucked. Hong Kong audiences aren't stupid enough to accept trashy plots like this and call it genius. The series has no real vision except "evil rich person wants to use stock market to win it all". That's not what "At the Threshold of an era" was about, or what motivates the characters, aka "family", "dreams", and "the future". TVB can't hide a flop like this behind smoke and mirrors
They were never an item. Never.
She can shave her head bald and she is still boring
Lovely photos but ruco really needs a better tailored suit and socks. Give him socks. But I am finding them bland as a couple. Ruco however isn't looking to be power couple so bland is fine. As for repeated statements that he is traditional etc, I kinda read he first proposed when they were in bed? Ahhh not very traditional! I suppose traditional these days mean marriage then children. No I don't think shes pregnant. Sorry but I don't feel for her. I do feel his career is winding down as his love life is up. Tvb still not know how to use him. He doesn't know how to handle extreme publicity. I was turned off with how he handled his romance. But he's happy. Just 2 years? Hes ready to settle down and be a father. Meanwhile I hope he renegotiates his contract with tvb.
He is ta and girly handsome. I quite like his fu heng. Kinda decisive guy. Chemistry, I think she had more with the emperor. Anyway acting wise... You see the picture in this article? You see that face? That's his face from EP 1 to where I am at, EP 40.i suspect same face until the end. He's no fantastic actor. Can learn I hope.
This was awful, the entire production was weaker than a cheap horror movie with random jump scares. Of the original Cast, Roger Kwok was the only one around, but his villain character is poor as heck, it's like his old character from the 1990's TVB "Instinct" starring Adam Cheng and Ekin Cheng, except we all know he can do better. "To Get Unstuck in time" showed us he had emotional and acting skills, this is a regression of his skills. Tavia tried her best, but the plot doesn't help her out. The stock games and drama from the original series at least had meaning and drove plot development. Gallen Lo was an Anti-hero we rooted to succeed as the underdog Hong Kong businessman fighting his way up the ladder of power. That was the magic of "At Threshold of An Era" part 1 and 2. Also to add a cherry on top, the "Smokeless" city concept hinted at something grander and bigger than what people's in 1990's or early 2000's could achieve, a true environmentally friendly and sophisticated new "city". The idea has a spirit of hope and the promise of a dream, which in western or eastern storytelling is what great epics are made of. Instead, in "Another Era" we have a bunch of superfluous drama surrounding family and an over the top villain, played by the goody-goody of last series. We also have stupid lines of "Justice" and "retribution" being hard to obtain in the "real world", until the very end with the Deus ex Machina ending like most TVB nowadays. WTF was TVB thinking with that kind of messaging, the producer/directors should be fired. I doubt many pople from the studio will care or if my fellow Cantonese Chinese viewers will agree with my hard line comments, but if TVB continues to make dramas like this, they deserve to go out of business. What TVB needs to do for the 21st centure and a truly "new era" is to seek out where people and livelihoods need to go towards, what is life in Hong Kong like today and what aspirations do people have for this great city, and finally dream about the future of China as a whole nation to bring in all viewers of Chinese descent, not just locals. Ancient dramas talk about "china" in the past, but what is its future and what is its dreams.
@terrycrews19 Director Jiang Wen asked Eddie to lose weight for "Hidden Man" since he preferred him with leaner muscles, instead of previous bulk. @peachyogurt I felt Eddie was also exploited in all the marketing for "Hidden Man". Very little press coverage on the actual content of the film, but lots of interviews on his nude scenes. As Eddie revealed in an earlier interview, he wasn't prepared to go fully nude, but the director requested him to do so. Perhaps Eddie doesn't have the "clout" to say no to such scenes without risk of losing this movie. I'm sure a lot of actors feel pressured on set to reveal more than they were initially willing.
Wow. Seriously? She reminded me of Angelina Jolie.
Here we go again reporter need to leave Nancy alone since Ruco is getting married soon and yes they do looks cute together but things just don’t work out for these two that’s it. This reminds me of Myolie when she announced she’s getting married then reporter kept bringing up Bosco name.
Holly cow!! What was he thinking? Extra money for sure?
If he’s dating her because she’s rich and only into her money of course there will be lots of blast going on just like Joel Chan. I don’t know if his girlfriend is younger than Matt or not but she looks older maybe Matt has the baby face?
Congratulations!! They got their wish but what’s with the strong genes? She must be thinking too much. She could have married someone who’s taller if she’s all worried then again because WCL got the money for her.
@jimmyszeto That's just a report made by a bunch of academics. It does not show actual popularity. Right after the report, there are fans who came out to defend her.
His latest film was released about three weeks ago and only made $129 during its opening debut @kmfayb That's terrible. :(
@anon My thought exactly! No clue what the point of that comment was... :-)
It's not anything new to get your photos snapped at especially when you've been a celebrity for over a decade now and when you're out in the public. But seems to me, she's getting upset because she's hiding something. People who have secrets are paranoid and being paranoid comes with a temper. FSF is creepy looking. Why all of a sudden he's accompanying her everywhere when they've been dating for a while now? Perhaps she is pregnant after all.
@kmfayb I hope that FBB does not come out in the next few months looking 20 years older. That would be career ending....
@passingby Not just the celeb secrets. She didn't bother to change writing style at all. It's exactly the same.....
@jimmyszeto I know right lol! You can change names but you can't change your writing style especially those parts about certain celebs' secrets that he/she claims to know lol.
@llwy12 Of course Jackie Chan is going to deny, can we expect anything else. He kisses butts so he does not want to look bad. At the same time, he wants to look good in FBB's eyes. What a character. Tell me something. Has there been any reports about FBB's health, has anyone seen her. I thought that she would be allowed visits from her closest family members, and definitely her lawyers. Not a peek out of her family and nothing out of her lawyer. Is she even alive. One thing is for certain, she is involved in much more than tax evasion. The world knows what is going on, to a point, and that does not sit well with officals. They feel they have been made a fool of on a world stage, not good, they are angry. I would like to know how FBB is doing though.
@mangotango Even if not investigated though, family members can be used as the pawns to get the person who committed the crime to submit to whatever punishment the government decides to dole out. That’s what happened with 4 out of the 5 HK booksellers, who all admitted their guilt and even went so far as to record video confessions (which were broadcasted on national TV) and also kept silent about what happened to them even after they were released – threatening the safety of family members is actually a powerful tool that the Chinese government has no qualms about using. So basically, if you’re expecting to commit a crime in China and get away with it scott-free (or even just go up against the government in any way, shape, or form), you better be a loner who has no family, friends, or anyone of meaning you’re close with because that’s pretty much the only way to guarantee they won’t be in harm’s way due to your actions…otherwise, it would be foolish to even try….
@llwy12 its not right to compare like that. Mandarin and canto drama are different. SOY they got big palace , huge people inside thats why it looks grand. TVB drama except the storyline, also the actors' speaking skill are exellent compare with china. China only can do well in ancient drama. Tvb more on modern drama. But still its not right to compare both as its different although skin color same only.
@llwy12 I hope the escaping to the US attempt wasn't true. Unless it to escape a life imprisonment or death sentence then there is no value to run. FBB is too popular for the Govt to back off without a fight. If escaping,she will have to worry for the rest of her life about getting knocked off after embarrassing the nation....
@llwy12 I agree that if it was not circulated in the media then there was a chance that FBB can come to an agreement with the authorities and get off lightly. Now that there is talk that fraud is widespread within the country that even their most famous actress is in on the act then there is no chance she can come out unscathed. This will be an excellent opportunity for them to make an example out of someone so that others will think again before looking to commit similar crimes. FBB is very unlucky because it is part of the county's culture and DNA to use power for financial gain. However when huge money and number of people participating, it is difficult to keep everything confidential. Only in China one can go from 'Rags to Riches' or 'Heaven to Hell' within a short space of time....
@hetieshou True, but it’s actually way worse if you do it in China, as escaping to overseas doesn’t necessarily mean you’re completely safe. I read about a local village chairman in China who spoke out against government corruption (local government officials were stealing land from the villagers and selling it to big box property developers, forcing the villagers and their families to be displaced) and ended up having to escape to the U.S….he gained political asylum and is technically under the protection of the U.S. government, but that hasn’t prevented him from continuing to get harassed by the Chinese government….it’s been a few years already but he continues to receive threatening phone calls to his house every week (he’s moved multiple times in the U.S. but they always manage to find him) and he fears for the safety of relatives still in China who are under strict surveillance by the government (and it’s not just immediate family….extended family and anyone closely associated with him are targets as well). And let’s not forget those HK booksellers whose primary offense was shipping banned books to customers who had bought them in China -- two of those booksellers had foreign passports and didn’t even live or work in China, yet they still got nabbed and had to go through hell (and the countries whose passports they supposedly held were powerless in doing anything to protect them)….
@kmfayb It’s funny that you mention Jackie Chan, as there were reports earlier that claimed he was the one who “advised” Fan Bing Bing to escape to the U.S. and claim asylum so that Chinese government can’t go after her (he of course vehemently denied that he ever advised her when he was confronted by reporters about the rumors at an event). One thing these celebrities need to keep in mind is that the government does whatever the hell they want to in China – doesn’t matter how famous you are or whether you are good at kissing up to govt officials or not, they will still come after you if they feel inclined to do so (especially if you make them lose face). From the looks of it, seems like FBB’s case is more than just tax evasion. Whether it’s her or her company that cheated the government, the fact of the matter is that they are not going to let her off easily, especially now that the whole world knows about it (I was just reading an article in The Hollywood Reporter about it the other day). And yes, FBB should have definitely known better – it’s true that people do stuff like this all the time in China, but knowing how the government is over there, it’s basically at their own risk…if they are foolish enough to commit crimes in such an environment, then when the you-know-what hits the fan, they need to stand and face the consequences.
@sugarcane haha, i was thinking of the same too.
@tiffany If we’re talking about Kara Hui TV series, I’m actually more looking forward to Fox Asia’s Stained over TVB’s The Defected….to me, it’s a no-brainer, lol: Kara Hui + Anthony Wong + Tse Kwan Ho (Stained cast) beats out Kara Hui + current TVB artists (The Defected cast) any day!
@jimmyszeto LOL…yea, I wonder. Standards are definitely low nowadays. And with all the “changes” happening at TVB lately (just yesterday, they announced the shutting down of yet another long-running program and potentially more layoffs of staff), their reputation is already in the toilet, so looks like they need all the “hype” they can get with their series to perhaps reassure the masses that they are doing ok….whatever the case, their series in recent years are still subpar….
@tiffany Plot sucked. Don't waste your time.
@jimmyszeto This is why some artists feel the pressure to hide their relationships. Maybe the boyfriends don't mind past relationships, but future mother-in-law can be judgey. It's hypocritical because they know their sons likely have had more than one relationship. It may seem silly that some women want successful husbands, but it really isn't that much different than men wanting beautiful wives. Whatever gives them that feeling of security and happiness, I guess.
I like the beading on the first gown and the pretty shoulder ties on the second. Gorgeous! Phoebe's normal style feels like an 80's or 90's throwback. I don't think it is the best and her styling of Ruco could definitely be improved. He seems to be attracted to quirky clothing even before her, so I don't think his misses can be blamed on her entirely. He is so much more dynamic in motion and has always seem stiff in photos. He looks best in simple jeans and t-shirts for casual and tailored suits for formal. Hope they continue to dress more like these styles in the engagement photos.
@llwy12 I’m hoping for a good plot. The trailer got me hooked! lol
@llwy12 I've heard it all this week. 'Another Era is one of the better drama this year'. 'Edwin Siu is a solid actor' etr. What kind of measuring stick are we using and standards we comparing to nowadays? haha
@anon I seriously can't remember any of the series this year...
@ivan If this is one of the better TVB dramas this year then I don't want to watch TVB anymore because this series was hot garbage to me (aside from Roger's acting, of course).
@llwy12 SOY was also very expensive to produce, although they got their money's worth in the end. TVB can't compete with that kind of moola. TVB never relied on their budget in the past for great dramas, because they had great storylines & characters. There's a feeling of authenticity that moved with the characters. Nowadays, all their dramas and shows are centered on careers. Not on character development. And they lack coordination & story logic. If TVB can fix those things, they'll have some power to compete. But at this point, they're still kind of floundering around.
@ivan Some netizen actually had the audacity to say that Another Era is “better than the original” in every way (and the media actually reported it, using that netizen’s comment to make the claim that HK audiences “love” the series – that’s where the piece in this article about Another Era being welcomed in HK “with grand applause” came from)….so delusional and pathetic! AE can’t hold a candle to the original, no matter which way they try to slice it...and they (the media) need to stop already with all the comparisons – for example: no, Pakho Chau is NOT Gallen Lo so let’s please stop likening his character in the series to Gallen’s Yip Wing Tim...(I should probably stop reading all the media hype on the series because it’s seriously ticking me off, lol).
@tiffany With Another Era, TVB basically picked the wrong series to collaborate with Mainland, as everything from the theme to the cast to the story doesn’t fit in with Mainland audiences’ tastes – even I know this and I don’t follow the Mainland entertainment industry that closely. Honestly, if TVB is serious about breaking into the Mainland market, they need to stop being lazy and actually do their research….in order to succeed in the Mainland market, they need to understand the rules of the game….otherwise, why even bother? TVB already screwed up their chances at salvaging the HK market so you would think that they at least put in the effort to make sure the Mainland market works out for them… In terms of The Defected — I love Kara Hui but unfortunately have no confidence in TVB whatsoever nowadays. I already dislike most of the main cast of The Defected (the current TVB artists whom I have no interest in watching) and can only look forward to the veterans, but of course, with this being TVB, I have huge reservations as to what type of roles those veterans will play (it’s possible some might only have split second cameos)…if TVB doesn’t utilize them well (which they probably won’t), then there’s no point in even having them in the series. With Yanxi, it’s more than the plot and post-production….the authenticity piece plays a huge role as well, plus the good pacing (doesn’t drag a story arc out over long period of time like most Mainland series) and also willingness to be “different” from the typical palace drama (there is actually a good balance of humor in the series that I felt was really well done). As much as I can’t stand Yu Zheng and he honestly annoys the hell out of me with that big mouth of his that 99% of the time spews garbage (and true to form, he’s constantly “in the news” these past couple weeks saying all kinds of stupid things that are pissing audiences off, lol), I’m still willing to support Yanxi because it truly is an excellent series. By the way, can the media please stop comparing Story of Yanxi Palace to TVB’s series? There honestly is no comparison – Yanxi is in a class of its own pretty much.
One of the better dramas this year but nothing compared to the original
@hayden These shippers are a pain in the butt. Even the media clowns joined in and started pairing Ruco and Nancy to sell papers. Then others started stupidly picking on Ruco for no reason, or to look cool in the eyes of others, seeking approval much. These shippers are mentally challenged and they can do a lot of damage to these men and wonen when the media join them. Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin, Mike He and Raine Yang have the most insane shippers. Some are still crying on YouTube and pining for real life marriages between these couples. Although the only one who is not married is Raine, and she is in a rock steady relationship. I expect her to announce news soon. Hopefully Ruco can have some peace and quiet from the quirks
@lynn90 I doubt FBB will have many friends now. She will be avoided like a plague. It’s china. No one will get praise for showing sympathy for him in public or contacting her. Contact with FBB,may lead to them getting their family generations checked potentially leading to another downfall...
@kmfayb Here’s how popular FBB is right now... Chinese film star Fan Bingbing has been ranked last in a report judging A-list celebrities on how "socially responsible" they are, fuelling further speculation about the whereabouts of the actress, who has not been seen in public for more than two months. The 2017-2018 China Film and Television Star Social Responsibility Report, carried widely by state media outlets, ranks Chinese celebrities according to three criteria: professional work, charitable actions and personal integrity. It praises celebrities who have become "relatively strong role models", but also highlights cases where it says they have had a "negative" social impact. But what is most notable is its 0% rating for Fan Bingbing, one of China's biggest stars, who hasn't been seen in public since 1 July when she visited a children's hospital. The report was authored by academics at Beijing Normal University.
@lynn90 We learn a lot more from the environment we grow up in and the people around us than what we do in work. I do feel very sorry for FBB because she probably thought nothing of it because everyone was doing the same. It does not feel like a crime when everyone is into it. Everyone will always at risk though because authorities can pounce anytime which is why the real forward thinking people look to move money abroad to invest and start a new life once they have obtained enough money. It’s easier said than done! When money is accumulated so easily and quickly, it’s hard to suddenly quit and move abroad. Humans are greedy and that is our downfall.
@kidd When actors are involved in certain negative situations, it is tricky decision to release their projects. Look at Kevin Spacey. His latest film was released about three weeks ago and only made $129 during its opening debut. Before his sexual harassment accusations, he was a box office draw, pulling in millions during opening weekends alone for his films.
I should call up Foxx and ask if he saw Ruco in England. Then again, he hates Ruco as he makes it very plain.
@sabrina Everyone does it it but does not make it right. If someone commits murder and gets away with it too, should we do the same to the people we hate?When people are brought up in that environment where everyone is committing fraud, it is very difficult for judge what’s right and wrong. It’s very likely that FBB was naive rather fully calculative. You are right! It might not be just simple tax evasion hence the secrecy. Could be fraud of substantial amounts and attempts to escape abroad which means heavier crime. It’s weird because if Hong Kong then past colleagues will be interviewed by media on whereabouts. In China, everyone has to keep silent and media coverage is censored.
@janet72 Right about that, not many asians in England, as opposed to Australia and New Zealand. Maybe that is why Ruco let his hair down about his proposal. He really is very introverted. Reminds me of Tony Leung. Actually both Tonys are quiet and low key away from the screen. The powerful po po are going to put me whete FBB is. While they are arresting me, I'll shout out, KMFAYB.
@sabrina He’s FBB’s son .....oh I mean brother...sorry.He’s family so in China it is possible that he is committing similar crimes or knows about it. He could also be helping store or spend the illegitimate money. Even if FBB have not bought a single gift for them, in China they don’t see it this way....
@janet72 I don’t think Kevin was seen as amazingly good looking when younger. If he was then his music career would have shot off in the 1990’s. His fans only grew after leading a few TVB series. No one noticed when he acted as support. Very similar to Ruco. No one noticed till he started leading TVB series. Did anyone care when Ruco was acting in the background with his glasses?
@janet72 I agree. Nancy and her group have been loud and active in pursuing a rich husband. She has been through many of them but none will settle down with her. She is getting to that age and reputation where the male’s mother won’t welcome her. She has met a handful of mothers in recent years already...
@windy They wouldn’t be caught and go to jail. They would be caught and shot dead...
@passingby Agree. Accuses me of multiaccounting than opens a 2nd account. Haha
@kmfayb hey you sound very familiar with all that supposed insider info of the many celebs you know about which you can't reveal the names. Didn't you previously post as bubbles or bubbletea (I forgot which name)?
@kmfayb I really hope it’s just a supersize burrito... They are moving very fast, and while I find them physically compatible, I wonder if FSF is ready to settle down. He has always given me major playboy vibes.
he looks a lot smaller than before, he looked a lot better in bloatmax mode, but i guess asians don't like them that big
@krys327 it does make you wonder. A man doesn't wake up and decide to bring a female to a hotel and have anorher male friend there. Don't forget the fact that he is still considered a newlywed, with a decent, beautiful wife and an adorable baby waiting at home. He has gotten into cheating and weird sex games before. The thing is, things went wrong this time, and he wasn't in china, where the woman would be crucified, threatened, called crazy and not believed.
Either Zanilia is pregnant, or she has a huge appetite and ate a supersize burrito.. That's all I'm saying about that.
@coralie I guess it was the way you worded your comment that prompted me to respond the way I did. My bad for misunderstanding. You are right about this sort of thing ripping families apart. It is sad when many wives trust their husbands only to find out he is a sexual predator. I do feel bad for families torn apart because of such discoveries. I get the impression that Gavin Gao's wife was clueless to what he was up to. I feel that he was cheating on her before this. I feel he was into three way orgies before, but this time it went horribly wrong.
I also thought the two women's features look very similar in the photo above.
@wm2017 the other guy is rather unnattractive....or to be blunt- ugly.
@hetieshou "if you ever get caught, you will suffer the consequences and regret it for the rest of your life." Sadly, this doesn't apply at all for corrupt officials in my country. Even after they're caught (hundreds of them every year), they will smile and wave as if they're A list star on red carpet. No one is feeling guilty. After they get out from jail, they're going back to become official again and enjoy their wealth.
@peachyogurt actresses have always been exploited for their figures. now it's the guys' turn.
Love both of Phoebe's choice for her gowns. Both gowns photographed really well and the photos are beautiful. I think I especially like the Berta gown on her. Congrats to Ruco and Phoebe! He finally found his happiness.
13 years together is a very long time...so this registration is just to give them both a legal right to make decisions for each other. what is important is their love for each other and not just the wedding day.
@coralie oh, kevin was definitely very good looking in his younger days. but he still looks ok for 49. hope the kids look like him.
@kmfayb before getting married, she acted all prim and proper with that virgin group. now after becoming Mrs Cheng, she changed her dressing...wow, is that to excite her husband?
@tiffany why would she be awkward if they didn't date? Nancy had many boyfriends, so I don't think any mother would welcome this kind of a girlfriend.
@littlefish she is definitely filled with happiness but why is Ruco busy with his sunglasses?
@jayne ruco seems very serious even though it's a happy event. he really needs to loosen up a little. Phoebe is young and sweet.
they were in England and not many people there would recognize him.
Ruco is so introverted that I am impressed he went all out like that to propose to Phoebe in a grand, romantic manner. It really must be love. Since the Andy Lau situation, the idols atr not really hiding their marriages anymore. I wonder when a certain pretty boy is going to follow in his buddy's footsteps and announce hid marriage and stop telling the world " I don't have a girlfriend right now" I even heard they adopted a baby as it is impossible for his wife to become pregnant. If idols had started this trend of admitting their other half many years ago, there won't be so many obsessed nutters.
It’s flopping because the story is not good. You don’t need a grand cast. Look at Yanxi - a good plot, post-production, etc. attracted the crowd. On a different topic, is anyone looking forward to The Defected? So many vets!
I remember meeting Anita Lee at the tender age of 7. She and the late Josephine Law scared me off, talking about brand name bags and stuff. Then they ridiculed me at a celebratory dinner at my dad’s restaurant by revealing that I asked a waitress for her “autograph”. (Adam Cheng was so pissed, lol!) I saw Josephine many years later at a church function but never went up to her and reminded her about the whole thing.
@coralie you are right about his current and ex girlfriend. They could act as sisters in a movie or drama. Maybe Ruco has a type, but his girlfriends are beautiful, he has good taste in choosing women. I can't understand why netizens put Ruco down. He is a rather good looking man, even handsome, I'd say. In one photo, the angle was bad, and all I heard was how unclely Ruco looks. Actually, he looks younger than 41 yrs old.
@kidd Who knows. The rules are not that all consistent.
I watched this movie at it's Tiff premier last night. First, both of Deng Chao's characters are the same age. Just one is sickly/dying which is why he looks so much older and the shadow is in public to make it seem like he is still healthy and strong. Second, Deng Chao's character is not a king, he is a Commander as seen in the subtitles of the movie. He is under the king, but has much more power due to his successful battles, which is why he is a threat to the king (played by Zheng Kai). The movie was visually stunning and there were some surprises. A bit gorier than I expected it to be, could have been toned down a little, but still fantastic nonetheless.
L.O.R.D.: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties 2 was originally slated to be released on 6 July 2018 but it was later announced on 27 June that the release will be postponed to a later date due to production reasons. I bet it's because FBB is the lead actress in the film. If FBB really get banned, can the films and series she was involved in still see the light?
@hetieshou FCC is just 18 years old, how could he involve in this? He was just a kid over the course of Fan BingBing's career.
@jimmyszeto Tax fraud is not good ofc. But you think other people who are in higher class and stronger than her didn't do it? All of a sudden, it was Fan BingBing. This issue has got to be more than tax fraud, like maybe. Fan BingBing probably stepped on someone in higher position's toe. And no, I don't support her wrong doing if she really did commit it.
@lynn90 men who act in idol dramas and do all the romantic roles are often times not very romantic in real life. reel life doesn't translate into real life, unfortunately. with that said, i don't know the full circumstances of her situation, so i'll withhold judgment. but if she did do this completely aware going in, then she's definitely at fault. we'll see what solid evidence the gov't comes up with. with such a high profile actress, they can't hide the details of her imprisonment.
It's weird but...I think the two ladies kinda look alike? Not trying to go into the stereotype, but if you look at their features individually and compare them against one another, they look dang similar!
@littlefish The last article stated that the victim turned on the camera when she realized she couldn't escape. But in this article, she had her camera turned way before she went into the room- "In the video, Wang Jing first lured the victim into the room before calling Gavin to come over" Either way, it is not good for him for doing that.
Phoebe really looks like a young Sammi Cheng in her 20s! Ruco has always been a very serious and responsible person. He takes care of seniors, such as Nina Paw, on set. He's also responsible to his fans; I remember he said in an older interview that he felt if his career didn't take off, he would have disappointed fans who had supported him for over 10 years. Perhaps due to Ruco's traditional views, he preferred to date a younger actress such as Phoebe, who has simpler views and less experience in the entertainment industry. Getting married for Phoebe at this stage likely meant she is willing to put her career on hold and place marriage and family as a priority. Always felt Ruco acts a lot older than his age. Even after dating Phoebe, he still looks worried and too serious in interviews. He definitely acts like the caretaker in the relationship.
I don't believe that FBB is the only one who evade tax in C entertainment world. If the accountant in her company can come with a way to do it, the other companies must think about it too. The other big names must be worried now for their turn. Or they will be hoping that FBB become the only scapegoat.
@lynn90 Which makes you wonder if he had committed similar crimes in China in the past, but was too powerful for any word of this to get out.
You would think that after living multiple lifetimes, 4-6 months of filming at a time, as this righteous, selfless, and good person onscreen, none of those virtues or morals ever rubbed off on her?! Anyway, if FBB is guilty as charged, may she receive her deserved punishment and nothing more. Prisoners are still entitled to their own respect and dignity. They're not there to be abused or raped, but that's the harsh reality. On the brighter side, at least she'll finally get to see who are her true friends, not that it really matters for people who cheat and commit fraud. It definitely is a hefty and expensive lesson, but I hope she learns from this instead of holding animosity that she couldn't get away in time or who betrayed her and whatnot. The best solution is to be at peace when the consequences come. I mean, whether you live in pain or peace, the situation doesn't change. What is done is done, but you can survive through it and become a better and stronger person.
He thought he was overseas, so whatever happens overseas stays overseas, but nope. The victim is lucky that it's Australia and not an Asian country or else Gavin may be in China sipping his wine as a free man right now. Asian countries kiss China's behind and even if they didn't, their judicial system is still far from respecting woman rights. The Asian society would have crucified her, the victim, instead of the predator.
@hetieshou yes, this can have a negative effect on Cheng cheng's career. He is just 18 yrs old. This is so hard for the family. This must be really hard on him for many reasons. Of course the chinese authorities will be watching him like a hawk now. We can only hope that by some stroke of luck, the asian population is not so unforgiving towards Fan Chengcheng.
@coralie I agree with you wish to see Anita Lee back on screen
I wonder if Anita Lee is trying to make a comeback to the industry. I miss her pretty face! Amongst the older veteran TVB actresses, she's definitely aged well.
@kmfayb don't get me wrong. i'm not sympathizing with the attackers. i'm sympathizing the family of the abusers. they (hopefully) never knew about their husbands' affairs, but are saddled with the humiliation and [email protected] from their husbands' deeds. i guess it's better to be enlightened than to stay ignorant. but what a painful shock!
@elizabeth Who is Lu Xiao Qing? FCC is a very popular among young girls. And he is only 18. He can return to showbiz hopefully when the storm is over. One of the reasons if the family is implicated may be the distribution of wealth and shares among family members. LOL.. reminds me of the drama Stranger.
Eddie Peng really does not need to show off his body for any movie or drama at all for viewers. He already has a nice physique and cute/handsome face. These nudity and sex scenes are pointless.
Congratulations to Ruco and Phoebe! Glad to hear that more artists are getting married and starting families.
OMG many hot dudes showing off the physique lately. Well if ladies can show off their curves so can hot men.
Good looking couple. Nice gown. Rico looks great too in blue suit although his trousers appear a wee bit short? Maybe that is current fashion?
@italin who said joey law is hot? i think the article said their exes are, not the boys
@kmfayb Images are all manufactured to promote idols to fanboys and fangirls.In reality the quick fame and money will get to the head of these young celebrities which makes them feel invincible. Now after committing horrendous crimes, they can learn the lesson that they aren’t invincible.
@littlefish Yes. If the victim was not psychological ruined by this brutal and viscious ordeal then she would have seeked a massive payoff from Gav and in order to change her statements leading to a smaller sentence. Looks like she is going all out to seek justice and put him away. Goodbye Gav. Hope his English is good because there aren’t any translators in jail.
Not everyone wants a prostitute. However, I'm sure Gavin Gao could have easily gotten a beautiful woman as his mistress. Not that I believe in cheating, nor am I promoting it, I'm just saying. A lot of netizens don't want to upset the apple cart and come out of their comfort zone. A lot of us believe that certain thinhs are for the West and the rest of the world only. To the fans and others, Gavin Gao was an up and rising actor, good looking, friendly, no scandals, a beautiful wife, an adorable baby girl and money was in the bank. He was your perfect boy next door. What they didn't realize, or don't want to realize is that he seemed to be into three way sex, or as the French call it menage a trois. It appears he has a strange, secret sexual fetish that has now been brought to light. I know I will be called perverted and crazy for saying this, know what, I Don't Care.
@kmfayb I think her acting career is the least of her worries right now.....
@kmfayb the jail picture that was released last month seem to be fabricated?
@potatochip I agree Nancy should be left alone. Ruco and her never dated. He made that quite clear and he was viciously and childishly pounced on by netizens, and they still stupidly and childishly go after him. One of the reasons is these fans and the media were shipping Nancy and Ruco. He spoke up and said they were not dating and boy, did he pay a price, which he is still paying, all because of rabid media and netizens. Poor nancy was put in an uncomfortable position all this time and the media are still ruthless and going after her about Ruco. Time to leave Nancy alone. If it was me, when these vulture approach me for an interview, I'd tell them to shut the front door and leave me alone.
i don't like any of Rucco suits and sockless style ... it might look good for other occassion ... but these are wedding photo shoots, at least dress the part ... pants that fit and wear socks, and no no to sneakers with a suit
@hayden status and fame don’t mean they can’t be a criminal, as a matter of fact, a lot of criminal traits are found in high level CEO lol. Some people get high on having forced sex unfortunately :/ it’s sad for the victim, I know i should feel sad for his family, but wouldn’t the wife knows her husband’s violence tendency? At least they can seperate from him, and still rich, whereas the victim... the psychological wounds.... all these stresses.... and her family have to deal with it, is beyond any money they can give her
@elizabeth Ma Su got tainted first because she allegedly hook up a famous married Chinese actress with someone younger than her, basically have a hand in helping the girl to cheat on her husband >_> sure technically not her fault that if one wants to cheat, one is gonna cheat but I think she got judged harshly she didn’t advice her friend not to do so lol. Anyway, legend of ba Qing is serious a curse! The first emperor must be like “you wanna do what? Tainted my name?” *curse from his grave lol
@wm2017 the last article said the victim filmed it as she felt she won’t be able to get out of their situation, was a smart move on her part and a dummy move on their part for not checking/taking her phone. They possibly have done this before, so finally got caught red handed!
@hetieshou I wondered that too, if she can make a fresh start. Then I realized if she spends a certain amout of time in jail, she will be past her prime when she comes out, and no one will really want to cast her. What needs to be considered is how will Fan Bingbing be mentally, psychologically , psychically and emotionally when she comes out.
These photos do show a softer side of him and how much he loves her! Good for them!
She is brimming with happiness while he looks like he’s doing a wedding/sunnies CF >_>
@hetieshou your parents surely taught you well. I have seen the path where greed has led a lot of people down, and it is a nightmare road. You are right, in the US, uncle Sam collects his taxes. Even big name celebrities have gone to jail for tax evasion. I don't even want to think about what will happen to FBB. From the looks of it, seems like she committed more than tax evasion.
@coralie I agree with the #metoo If these wives and girlfriends of the attackers are not aware of their men's actions, it is good that it is being brought to light, so that the women are aware of the monsters they go to bed with. Obviously such men have no respect for their women and need to be exposed. If the women know what their men are doing, and turn a blind eye, and stay with these men, then they are just as disgusting as their men. Then those types of couples are sickening are made for each other. You should think about the women who were abused by men and everyone said they, the accusers, are after money, they were mentally sick, they were accusing these men out of spite. A lot of these women were shunned by society and even their own family. Some lived in fear, not enjoying intimacy after their ordeal. Some of them became a mental, social, emotional, psychological and sometimes psychical shadow of their former selves. These women's lives are ruined. If the attacker has mow waaney, fame and power, they then add insult to injury by trying to buy the victim's silence, after ruining her life. Some of these women live in hellish fear because their lives, and the lives of their families are threatened. No woman or man should have their bodies inappropriately touch by someone without the victim's consent. Also, no means no, and stop means stop. To have someone force themself on you is one of the most traumatic experience that a victim can go through. No wonder some victims commit suicide. I'm glad the #metoo is bringing these monsyers to light. I'm glad it is empowering victims with the courage to come forward and expose their attackers. I'm glad that the rich famous ones will now think twice about targeting victims, as they like to hide behind their money and status. The #metoo is not really embraced in Asia, as Asia sadly and ignorantly likes to pay a blind eye to this sort of thing called rape or s~xual harassment.
There is no need for Phoebe to be winner in Miss HK. She already hit jackpot by just participating and captured Ruco's heart. This is even better than winning Miss HK. She is one lucky lady.
Phoebe looks very pretty in both her wedding gowns. I like the beaded dress from Inbal Dror more, as the beads look magical when catching the sunlight. Wish Ruco wore a black tuxedo instead. I think black and white looks more striking together instead of his blue suit. Phoebe looks fresh and at ease before the camera, while Ruco looks more rigid.
@potatochip For an introvert, it would be a nightmare to be with a loudspoken actress with colourful past of failed relationships. Phoebe seems the ideal choice. The quiet, cooperative type, with no career achievements unless you count the clapping and smiling sequences in ‘Cooking Beauties’.
@elizabeth I expect that FBB would shake your hand off if offered a 1 year jail sentence now. In China if they start investigating, there must be some real concrete evidence. It would be a miracle if they suddenly come out saying FBB is not charged.
@mastaoog Brutal rape captured on video. Can’t even make this sort of drama up. Can’t get more concrete evidence than this. A crap husband, a crap father and a crap role model. Deserves a long jail term. Like I say ‘Goodbye Gav’...
These guys are disgusting. Even though they have access to consensual sex, they want to rape instead. Rape is about power. Hope they rot in jail.
They should leave poor Nancy alone. They never were in a relationship. How awkward for her to be repeatedly asked the same questions. And Ruco is really quite a cautious introvert as described by his friends. It's not a bad quality, it just makes it harder for him to interact with the media.
Congratulations to them! This pictures are beautiful. They look very happy.
If Liu Xiao Qing did not escape jail for tax evasion back then, I don't see how FBB is going to escape some form of punishment. But Liu Xiao Qing still had some form of a career afterwards but never returned to the height of her career. FBB is probably going to follow a similar path where she would pop up in the news every now and then. I feel bad that FCC's career has been involved,
@mangotango She may have been drunk and agreed to have sex with the first guy, but I doubt she consented to be violently assaulted by two men.
@jimmyszeto I heard that Ma Su is now involved in some prostitution rumours as well. Not sure how real that news is, but it seems that this production is cursed. The one I feel sorry for is Yan Yi Kuan.
@mastaoog I think it was mentioned before that the victim managed to turn on the video capture on her phone after realising something was wrong and she could not escape. https://www.jaynestars.com/news/gavin-gaos-case-update-new-video-evidence-points-to-foul-play/
@m0m0 He would have experienced plenty of prostitutes or women willingly offering themselves to him already. The excitement would have disappeared. Next up is brutally forcing unwilling women to engage in xxx, a demonstration of power and macho behaviour. I hope the blind fans expressing their support for him in recent months get their act together...,
@m0m0 alcohol uninhibits one's sense, dull thinking process, forcing sex on someone gives them sense of power and dominance. You do not get that from a pros cos she is willing. OK, I watched too much psycho thrillers. Lol.
why would you need to force sex on a woman when you can pay for it and get? just don't get it....
@hetieshou I agree. Greed is an addiction. FBB has billions anyway. What you can buy with 20 billion net worth, you can buy 1 billion. It is just pure greed to manipulate accounting and contracts to amass even greater sums of money. She wouldn’t have stopped either since greed is part of a person. The only way she would stop is when caught and here we are! I don’t get all the social media support from fans. Do they not agree with country laws? FBB has had her glorious career peak with Wu Zetian. Now she has left her family and TV stations who have invested into her series with her mess. The stations who have invested millions in purchasing rights to her series are unlikely to be allowed to show any reruns of her past series. One of the most successful actresses in China, her acting history will be wiped out as if it had never happened....
@jimmyszeto I know and it is fine to have your own production company and all as many artists do. However, just like with any business, be honest and do everything legally and pay your taxes. I guess she and her team just let greed get a hold of them and now they end up like this. I agree and if she was like Tony who just focuses on acting instead of cheating money, she would not be in this mess. It is ok to have investments and all as Carina does it too but just do it honestly. Plus, I like how grounded and humble Tony and Carina are in spite of their wealth. They seem to live pretty simple and grounded lives. Tony is very frugal even though he is very rich. I admire that very much. I am glad my late parents always taught me to never be greedy and do dishonest things just for money. Money comes and goes but the sins that we commit will always haunt us. Sadly people value money too much these days that they would do anything bad just to make more money. There should be a limit to everything including greed.
@hetieshou If it is just an acting ban then it will be a huge injustice but yes she is very lucky that she is famous. In China they execute for domestic crimes such as assault or robbery nevermind fraud and tax evasion involving monstrous sums . Even if FBB didn’t know anything about it and it was just the people she hired, in China she won’t be able to hire a lawyer to fight a case to prove it. It is up to the police to investigate and court to decide whether guilty or not only.Both FBB and Gav Gao are lucky. Rape in China is a guaranteed death sentence offence but probably would have been able to come to mutual agreement with victim. Either way both are done career wise and family are left behind to suffer...
@coralie Yeh. Gav hit it big overnight and the fame/power got to his head. He would have been living in a dreamland and it in an realistic world. He would have felt invincible and in the heat of the moment thought he could do whatever he wanted. That would be the only way to explain this because hiring a prostitute does not seem to be exciting enough for him. He needed to rape a colleague....
@jimmyszeto I heard about that too and must say that FBB is lucky as she is a known celeb with money. At least they are not letting her off completely as it would be very unfair. You are right that after a life of luxury, will she even be able to handle the minimum sentence/punishment? I heard that they will ban her for 3 years which is not too bad. She does deserve to get punished if she did commit all of the crimes she is accused of.
All the #metoo exposes are causing so much grief to the wives and children of the attackers. I don't know if they're even aware of their husbands' infidelities and turned a blind eye or maybe they're even victims themselves, but whatever the case, it brings negative unnecessary spotlight and disruption to the family
@hetieshou FBB’s downfall was opening her own production company and making these heavy invested productions. With everything under her control, she or both herself and her team thought they could control and manipulated all finances. If she was just an artist like Tony Leung who focuses just on acting and relaxing then this wouldn’t have happened. She and her team kept getting richer and in the end got greedier and greedier
@kmfayb I agree and FCC just started his career. I wonder what will happen to him in the long run? Yes the Asian Entertainment is a lot less forgiving than the western entertainment circle. Sadly, that is usually the case in Asian societies which is when one member does something bad then the whole family is affected.
I've been told power & riches frees inhibition. So even though it doesn't make sense for Gavin to do such a thing, it's not surprising under this theory. Poor wife and daughter.
@hetieshou In the past, I’ve heard that if serious fraud or fax crimes in China then they check ‘3 generations’. Basically all FBB family, relatives, distant friends will all be checked investigated for years to come if this is all true. Tbh if this was a lower profile unrecognised person with the sums of money involved, he/she might be taken to a field and secretly executed. FBB might get the minimum punishment based on the crime committed. She won’t be able to handle the punishment after a life of luxury but it is deserved of the accusations are true......
@lynn90 I was reading more info this and it seems a lot more serious than just tax evasion and you truly wonder if FCC was also involved in this and their parents too. I have a feeling it is much more serious than what we have heard if it meant she has to go jail and banned from leaving the country too. Sadly this is where greed will lead you. I am glad my late parents always taught me never to be greedy or do anything dishonest just for money because if you ever get caught, you will suffer the consequences and regret it for the rest of your life. It appears that that is happening with FBB. I heard that due to this incident, the government will now limit the amount any leading actor/actress gets paid for any production. I find they are already way overpaid but yet still refuse to pay taxes. Go figure!
@littlefish From what I have been reading, it seems that FBB is a serial offender and has done many other things that has supposedly landed her in jail. I feel bad for her brother as he is still young but FBB should know better. I bet she thought she can get away with it but sadly,it is not the case and now she has to pay the price for it.
@jimmyszeto I wonder the same thing and it is not just China. If you evade paying taxes in the US or do anything unlawful anywhere, you will have to pay the price regardless of the country.
@kmfayb I feel bad for her brother as he is just starting his career and all this happens. I hope that he will not suffer too much due to all this. I actually do not feel bad for FBB as she should know better. Greed sadly leads you to despair and many troubles. Luckily, my late parents always taught me to never to be too greedy as it is not worth it if you are doing something dishonest because once you are caught, you will regret for the rest of your life. I once knew some people who cheated the system here in the US and got caught and had to go jail and pay heavy fines. It is just not worth it.
@kmfayb I was reading more about this and wonder how true it all is. The news was saying that she did more than just evade taxes but had illegal loans, signed Yin Yang contracts and corruption as you mentioned. If she is found guilty of all charges, she may be in jail for quite some time. There were also other reports saying how she tried to seek refuge in the US but I guess that attempt failed if she did try. The news was saying how the government will now they limit the amount that any lead actor or actress is paid in any production due to this incident. I guess they can see how overpaid actresses and actors but yet they still try to evade their taxes. Korean artists were caught evading taxes too. I remember Song Hye Kyo being one of those but she blamed it on her accountant and finally had to pay it all plus interest. She got lucky that she did not get punished. Anyways, I truly wonder if Fan Bing Bing will be able to revive her career after this whole ordeal? Or if she ever does, will she just grab what she has left and immigrate to the US or elsewhere? Let’s see and this all sounds like a tv series.
I don’t understand why we are still discussing about Nancy-Ruco. We should just let this topic rest and not embarass Nancy or make her feel awkward. Ruco has made his choice so all this talk about the rumoured Nancy-Ruco relationship is not relevant anymore. The media wants to sensationalise matters because such news bring in the cash but please have some ethics. Please don’t embarass Nancy further by posing awkward questions to her which are not relevant. To have to receive calls from the paparazzi asking her how she feels and whether she is attending their wedding is just too much.
Ruco & Nancy are not compatible off screen. They are so awkward in interviews and when they're performing. Viewers should stop forcing their ships on them. I remember them performing their duet live and whenever Ruco reach out to hold her hand, Nancy didn't. And towards the end Nancy finally reached her hand out Ruco didn't bother, after getting rejected so many times.
@hayden Nina Paw said Ruco is an introvert and we know that he is very traditional. Just based on that, there is no chance that his character matches with Nancy...
@hayden Don’t worry! Gav will get his karma and will get it very soon. Racism might be rife in prison and no one knows who the hell he is so will not get any special treatment. The FBB and Gav events recently have been unbelievable. It almost feels like the greatest set up of all time as if they had upset higher officials whilst filming ‘the legend of ba Qing’. The reality more likely that they both committed horrendous crimes and will be put away for a long time...
@anon Yes, i agree with you that Roger was far better in Last One Standing. Nonetheless, he is still the best performing actor among the male actors in Another Era. I find that Roger has always been typecast as a villain in recent years. I'm looking forward to his another new series (Big White Duel), which could possibly be his new breakthrough role (since we have watched quite a lot of his villainous roles).
Maybe they were both high on alcohol?
Something is wrong with that last picture, though.
Don't think Ruco is interested in Nancy in the first place. As she appears to be the type too strong headed and wants things her way type of character. Where else Phoebe looks more submissive and sweet in character which suits Ruco more. But I might be wrong in their character tho :D
What was Gavin thinking? With his looks and status, does he even need to have force sex? Besides he is married with a young daughter. Before that he even defended his innocence saying he was being accused and frame. He really gave celebrity a bad name. He is really screwed and can rot in prison. The wife is better off divorce him. I think FBB really regret casting him in her drama, she also have trouble herself with the tax evasion thing now.
I didn't find Phoebe that attractive, but they actually look very cute together here!
@anon oh really? I think Roger's a good actor though, in particular in those dramas you mentioned.
@tiffany true true, they looked cute together and all but nah, their personalities just didn’t work out together
@cutie777 The two didn’t date. Both of them aren’t compatible in real life though. There’s that awkwardness offscreen.
@jayne She gives off that simple vibe, which fits Ruco.
@jessehsuan I know right! Wow! He will probably be in jail for a long time if convicted. But who was filming it? They are sick enough to have it on film esp with one of them a bit more well known? Wonder how that that other guy looks, not that looks matter I mean but just wondering.
wait who recorded the video? regardless bye bye career if it wasn't gone before sure is now. And hope they rot in prison.
Congrats to Ruco and Phoebe. He really wasn’t joking around when he said it could be any time. I’m quite surprised that it’s so soon, they must have been planning this for awhile. The photos look amazing but not digging her dress. It’s a beautiful dress but too revealing for engagement photos/wedding. Half of her breasts are hanging out..seriously how much more do you want to show in this type of photos.
So sick! I was hoping it was mutual to lessen the pain for his wife and children. How can he hurt someone like that, imagine it was his wife or daughter! I feel for his wife and children for having a husband and father like him if this is all true!
Too bad Nancy and Ruco relationship didn’t work out otherwise she might be the one he’s going to get married with because I really think they looked cute together. Hopefully she will find someone else soon.
That was sure fast! Didn’t they meet 2-3 years ago?! Wow! the pictures did indeed come out very well! big congrats to both of them
Congratulations!! Finally Ruco found his Mrs. Right. Ruco definitely looks much better and younger in here without his glasses. To be honest I’m a little shocked about he’s going to get married this early. Wonder who’s going to be his best man and bridesmaid? Those pictures looks very nice. I don’t think phoebe is pregnant now maybe she just wanted to have a wedding just like Grace she’s not pregnant right now either right?
@wm2017 Ruco was voted by JayneStars' users two years in a row as "Hong Kong's Sexiest Man Alive". He had kept the trophy JayneStars prepared for him and displayed it in his home (revealed through a photo he posted of his awards collection on Weibo): https://www.jaynestars.com/news/ruco-chan-posts-photo-of-2011-sexiest-man-alive-in-hong-kong-award/
Congrats to Ruco and Phoebe
@anon I tried watching the first episode today and fell asleep after 20 minutes....that’s a sure-fire sign right there that the series is boring. Any good scriptwriter will tell you that the opening to a TV series (or movie) is just as if not more important than the ending, as it sets the stage for the rest of the series for one and two, it’s the hook that draws viewers in...the fact that Another Era’s first episode was boring to the point that I could barely get through the first 1/2 hour — well, let’s just say there is no hope for the rest of the series in my book.
@jayne I didn't know he's Hong Kong’s Sexiest Man Alive? haha Lol....They do look cute together, he does not look 41.
OMG! Hong Kong's Sexiest Man Alive is getting married! :) I'm thrilled by Ruco's wedding announcement today. He's said many times in the last few months that he wants Phoebe as his wife, but I thought the wedding won't be until next year. He is sure a man of quick action. I think many fans were a little taken aback when Ruco and Phoebe's dating news first surfaced. But over time, fans grew to accept Phoebe and her sweet nature. Looking forward to Ruco and Phoebe's wedding. They are a beautiful couple! I'm waiting for Kenneth Ma's wedding announcement next.... I thought Kenneth would actually get married before Ruco since he has been dating Jacqueline longer.
The engagement photos are nice. Congrats to them!
I guess we won’t be seeing ‘the Legend of Ba Qing’ anytime soon then lol. Unless they edit it without the Male and female lead...
Kenny's acting has never wowed me, but he seems like a sweet person! They have been dating and living together for a long time, so this just seems like a little thing to make it more official. I love low-key and simplicity! Wish them happiness!
@cassie so FBB is really in jail. I feel bad for her on one sense, but on the same token, she should know better. I also heard that she was coached and encouraged on how to avoid paying her taxes. If this is true, FBB is an adult and she had the choice to say no, and walk away from indulging in tax fraud. If she is found guilty of corruption, tax evasion and heavens knows what else, she can kiss her lucrative career goodbye. Unfortunately, Fan Cheng cheng and the rest of the family will suffer too.
@joant07012 I don't think it's insiders' news really. This article confirms that she's in jail: https://entertainment.toggle.sg/en/asianbuzz/article/fan-bingbing-tax-evasion-arrest-10700988
@kmfayb @cutie777 Sick and tired of hearing about this money grubbing, pathetic fame seeker on the news all the time.This guy is way overexposed and overrated. He should just look elsewhere to earn a living but not in entertainment industry!
I don't know how reliable my source is. I heard from a cousin in Hong Kong, cuzzie is well connected, that FBB is in jail, after a second arrest for falsified or illegal loans and corruption. I was told she might be put away for a very long time. That is all I can say right now.
this series sucked and linda's character was pointless. Would've been better if she was just a memory or something.
Lol. Maybe it’s just a bad picture of him from the picture above. It seem like phoebe did something to her chin? It doesn’t seem that round from the previous picture. Lol. I knew killer is going to be in this article for sure...
@kmfayb Any reliable sources that shes in jail? I have seen so many news with different reports but most of them aint confirmed
@kmfayb I wonder if she does go to jail, will she get privileges or get treated like any other prisoner. No wonder nowadays many rich Chinese families move their wealth to invest abroad and then gain citizenship. No matter how rich and powerful in China;if Law changes, someone makes accusations against you or authorities go after you then no one will be able fend it off easily...
@anon Roger’s expressions look weird these days. I’m not sure if it is because of the aging or the Botox....
For those of you wondering where Fan Bing bing is, she is not in the USA, or is she under house arrest. She is in prison.
He wasn't kidding when he said, "Any day now..." in interviews. The engagement photos are beautiful. Both look gorgeous. Congrats to them!
@diana80 Roger did a good job, but I also couldn't help but think his acting and expressions were lacking and at times he couldn't portray this character as well as he did in previous villianeous roles. Unfortunately, this is not among his best performances. In terms of his recent work, I say his acting in Last One Standing was far better and even Black Heart White Soul was better.
i dont know what is the whole purpose of linda in this series
@jimmyszeto yes doesnt make sense at all, poor friends! maybe he's too absorbed from his 'big brother' roles in dramas where he always sacrifices himself for the good of others n dont care what others think of him
I'm now still at episode 17...no hurry to finish watching it. This series is definitely no match to the original/prequel, but is still watchable if you don't put in high expectations. I watch it for Roger and Tavia, and i'm glad they both delivered power performance in the show. Meanwhile, Linda's role in this series is indeed unnecessary. I think TVB put her in this to allow her to fulfil her contract obligations because she left the station not long after filming this series.
@anon Oh well. As soon as they make all the crap sequels to all of the past classics, the quicker we can put a close to these trilogies. No more Rosy Business, No more future heart of greeds, no more at the threshold of an era. Next on TVB hit list is forensic heroes then it will be no more forensic heroes....
@hannah I like the MAIN casts, but the plot was complete garbage. It's not even comparable to the original series if anyone is old enough to watch them. (I'm looking at you millennials and generation X's.)
Grace should've just stuck with modelling. There's no hope for her in acting.
Funny some netizens were commenting that Ruco was considerate not to announce their engagement yesterday, which was Nancy Wu's birthday lol. Apparently their wedding is October, which seems quite rushed.
@jessehsuan , you know it right?. No need to come up with such lies when it is so obvious. As much as I hate the lies, I can't blame these idols cause the dumbed down sheep believe their lies. A certain idol got married in Europe this summer after being 'involved' with his wife for over 11 years. There were tell tale signs they were hanging out and travelling together, for years. All these years he was telling everyone he has no girlfriend. In June, he declared his love to the one he loves, even saying "I love you", on his weibo. He still recently said he does not have a girlfriend. How insulting can you be to the public. Then again, he doesn't have a girlfriend, he has a wife. If Phoebe and Ruco are trying to be smart alecs, then shame on them. They need to know, all the A,sians are not sheep.
@jessehsuan Filters, lighting, etc. can alter the image. I also find her different onscreen lol
what a nasty comment, kudos for holding it together for joyce.
@anon they weren't bad but i definitely don't miss them or seeing her on screen.
As disgusting as the lies are, I don't blame them for coming up with these insulting, degrading lies. Reason why..... They know that the dumbed down sheep will believe the nonsense they feed them. This crap is old school now. Taiwan pretty boy got married in Europe this summer. Was with the woman for eleven years. There are tell tale signs they hang out and travel together for years . For years he just said he doesn't have a girlfriend, yeah right. He declared his love to the one he loves, even saying "I love you", on his weibo in June to his nrw wife, wishing her pure happiness. He glows like a lightbulb. Stevie Wonder can see Bryan is in love. Still Pinocchio is still saying right now, how single he is. So as much as we who know better may hate the lies and deceit they try to insult our intelligence with, the idols will lie to the sheep, who are the majority. This will continue for decade to come.
@dramafan I meant to originally say that I agree with your comment, to a certain degree.
Congratulations to them! But I dont get how Phoebe was surprised when Ruco proposed to her in England. They had planned to take an engagement shoot in England and she was wearing a bridal dress not casual clothing...lies artists come up with.
@m0m0 There are some that love her crying scenes and girl-next-door roles.
I thought childish children could not be po po. Boy was I wrong. Look no further than here to see that they are.
@1piscesish If they are engaged, congrats to Ruco and Phoebe. Wonder what we will find to dis about the engagement, cause we will find plenty, mark my word.
What I find so funny is if an idol is picked on, and that idol is worshipped by certan people, they are quick to handcuff the offender who dares to pick on t ghar eir god or goddess. Yet it is fair game for them to bash, and I mean bash the idols they don't like and it is all good. They dont see anything wrong with their bashing, only the bashing of others towords their idols. Then again, the po po are the law.
@anon when was it ever rave worthy?
Grace is photogenic only. I watch most of her drama and somehow she doesn’t look pretty as her photos-her face too bony and long. I don’t agree she can surpass ABB(not her fan either) as a model.
@coralie I should have said that Grace is super skinny and has a gorgeous face which is the perfect model combination. Grace does not need any more height to be a model in Asia. There are models her height in Asia. I don't get the fuss about ABB, as her appeal is based on her looks and those looks are a huge lie. Grace's look are the real deal.
i wonder why he's dragged into this b/c of his sister. the whole family's ruined b/c of one person's mistake. i thought china determined from what the communist refers to as feudalism from its imperial days. too suprise to learn that communist has double standards *0*
@1piscesish congrats to them! there must be something great that ruco sees in phoebe. not sure if he's the machismo type, but if he is, then i can see them working out. she seems kinda introverted, but genuine. a good woman. that type will always attract more machismo type of men.
@m0m0 yeah agreed. but at least kevin was hot in his younger days. their kids will be gorgeous.
LATEST NEWS: THESE 2 ARE ENGAGED!
@coralie I agree with the model looks. If she had an extra inch in height and can hold back on her joyous expressions then definitely plenty of potential.
she looks so hot in this, stunningly beautiful. what a waste to marry a man so much older than her....
@birdy Yes. Ruco’s stubborn, prehistoric, traditional, ‘i’m A big man and I will to protect my girlfriend’ attitude’ will get him nowhere. That paranoid behaviour in deleting friends from social media to protect them is a load of nonsense. As if a colleague in the entertainment circle will be bothered by being written in a article. Think they will be more pissed on being deleted. Ruco is not as newsworthy as he imagines and he delusionally thinks that he is the ‘heroic protector’ of all family and friends.
@passingby @birdy Sick and tired of hearing about this money grubbing, pathetic fame seeker on the news all the time.This guy is way overexposed and overrated. He should just look elsewhere to earn a living but not in entertainment industry!
@kmfayb im pretty aware of that. I'm not a fan of ABB, but she has nationwide appeal on home turf + mainland. If Grace started her career in modeling, she'd surpass ABB (imo), and make it even bigger. It's regretful she didn't start off that way
@peanutbutterjelly What features of Asians are you referring to? Shouldn’t be evaluate appearance on a wide scale rather have specific rules for each race.
@peanutbutterjelly My assumption at least has some basis from analysing what she posted. Your assumption that she is young is lazily plucked from thin air.
@jimmyszeto Regardless of age, do you honestly think her comment warranted such a hostile reaction? You sounded more rational in other posts but I guess I was wrong. "She sounds more like dedicated TVB fan who has been watching TVB and ONLY TVB for decades." Now who's the one making assumptions? The 'offhand comment' was referring to her and not you.
@jimmyszeto of course Asians can have opinions on other Asians' appearances, where did I deny that may I ask? I said what I said, Asian ethnocentric features are not appreciated amongst Asians and I find that regrettable.
he deleted his friends cuz he wants to protect them????? whaaaaat???
@kmfayb Yeah I don't really believe that Jackie Chan gave her money.
@nigel No evidence of that whatsoever. Louis has had no rumours with specific men.
@jimmyszeto By current standards, yes. Better than Benjamin, Tony, Pakho, Jason and he even has more facial expressions than Ron.
@jimmyszeto unfortunately though I hope it's not true. Apparently he is still hiding in the closet.
@italin loved this couple. Wish they are really together in real life. So much chemistry esp in DIF4.
@passingby Haha. Only just noticed that picture and know what you mean. Grandad smile false teeth look. Ruco has the ATV lazy DNA. Cant sustain dedication to his acting for a consistant period. Happy to just be earning good money.
i couldn't pass episode 5 tho i love the casts.
@msxie0714 @funnlim @snoopy thanks guys i did binge tvb canto dub over the weekend sure is addictive and on episode 31. I read somewhere is like 70 episode hopefully i have patient for that lol .
What's happening to Ruco Chan? He used to look so hot , now he just looks weird especially that smile and the nose. The glasses also age him. And his fashion sense is getting from bad to worse. Must fire his image consultant. His career seems to be over and he's busier romancing than working these days. Such a pity.
I finished watching all 34 episodes only to realise the hk version will have 36 episodes haha
@karina Hollywood Reporter gave it high marks.
@birdy2415 Wow..‘Edwin is a solid actor’. Now I have heard it all....
Grace is skinny, skinny and she is pretty with, or without makeup. She is one of the few Asian celebrities who can show a natural face, without giving us a natural scare. Grace is natural. Angelababy, not at all. There is noting that ABB has on Grace.
@littlefish I think it depends on the sums of money involved and also if it is an isolated incident. Since it is happening in her company, the situation might be dozens of contracts are uncovered at once to be manufactured to avoid tax. In that case, Fan Bingbing might be charged as a serial offender....
Too bad she's not taller. Otherwise, she will really give Angelababy a run for the money. This girl has amazing model looks.
@lynn90 it’s strange, because if you are first time tax evasion offender, all you need to do is pay the fine. You don’t get house arrest or put in jail. You only get put in jail if you are multiple offender. So there must be something else. FBB’s rise to A list quite sudden, so maybe she offended whoever helped her before?
Hopefully Zhang Yimou somewhat redeems himself after the travesty that was "The Great Wall". Sad how low he's fallen after producing great works like "Hero" , "House of Flying Daggers" etc.
Eh seems like a PR move for sympathy from the public. Lets be real , how did FBB ever think she could get away from the whole tax evasion thing forever? She probably has many enemies (along w/ friends) within the industry who envy and hater because of her sudden rise to "global" fame circa ~2010 ish. FBB is very crafty with her image so i'm not too surprised it took this long for a major scandal (and one that involves government lol..) to potentially cause the downfall of her career. Well luckily for FBB she's a household name so I don't think the Mainland authorities can do much besides "banning" her. She can live with her millions or find a way overseas like so many other rich Chinese people.
This show sucked. Don't waste your time. Not to mention, Linda's character was pointless in the drama. She was in this show possibly only because the director wanted Vancouver as a backdrop. Her acting was nothing to rave either.
What’s with Ruco’s smile? Bad angle? It’s getting weirder each day. Can’t tell if it’s forced but looks awkward. Phoebe looks cute in that picture compare to others where she looks so dull and plain.
Okaaay. I hope Mrs Parrot Cheng is not dressing in provocative attire like the bralette now that she married to make us believe she was all virginal before she tied that knot with Kevin. If anyone believes that, I have a bridge, and an island for sale, kekeke.
@nomad822 beautifully said. I met her and her mom. Her mom had a positive, bubbly aura which she passed onto Joyce. I felt for Joyce when Lydia died, and I wished the beautiful, humble caring lady who was Lydia had lived, but at least we can take consolation in the fact that she is out of the horrendous pain brought on by cancer. Joyce has inherited her mom's poise, bubbly personality and humbleness. I don't think Joyce realizes she is a celebrity who inherited her mother's wealth. She is that humble and down to earth. A lot in the industry can learn a lesson in humility from Joyce. As for her looks, we are all of different features and size. She carries herself so well, so elegantly and humbly and to me, Joyce is beautiful.I am glad she accepts herself for who she is. Any man worth his salt who is fortunate to have Joyce should be counting his lucky stars. If she was in most countries in Europe, or the caibbean, men would be falling over themselvesfor a woman with meat on her bones, not the pale cadaver waifs in the industry who starve to look like Ms Skeletar. Beautifully said Nomad22.
It’s tough for him. He hit it off because of his sister, and now, it’s also because of sister.
Joyce has gone through a lot, and in total agreement with everyone above. She is "the epitome of grace, in a storm". Beautiful young modern lady, whether it is cool acceptance of a less than perfect Asian ideal of a figure ... and being not delusional, bitter or biatchy of those around her. She is ... as her song goes: "女神". Seen her in Vancouver as a schoolgirl in her Crofton House school uniform a few times, with her mom. My heart went out to her - during her mom's roller coaster with cancer. And later, when both her Grandma and Mom (both the pillars in her life) died one after the other, in mere months or weeks. It was ALOT for a young person to shoulder and deal with, alone. Cruel life blows, to a girl who was just barely 19 or 20 then. With a dad remaining, who was not much of a dad all her life. And yet she HAS survived; and risen to be such a cool young woman. Someone who embraces WHO she is too - imperfections, flaws et al ... with such self-awareness and graceful graciousness. SHAME on the negative commenters.
@terrycrews19 Well, part of TVB's downfall for me is having 30-35 episodes of absolute trash. They keep dragging out what would have been decent drama. Surprisingly their 20-episode series have been more tolerable in my opinion (not all of them though).
@jimmyszeto Slightly disagree. Edwin is a solid actor (by current standards) but the script was just horrendous. Could barely get past the first episode but carried on because Edwin, Raymond and Kristal are solid actors. The only scene remotely funny was them throwing up due to motion sickness, and the ice-cream scene. Matthew was the only good thing about the serie.
Joyce is the epitome of graace in a storm. She has faced so many cruel remarks before but continues to not lash out in a negative mmm anner. It takes sophistication and grace to do that. Joyce is not to be blamed because her parents were well known and wealthy. Some netizens needs to attend a school for common sense and wisdom. They need to come forward, instead of staying backwards, blind and ignorant.
@kmfayb I agree. It's just hard to say when everyone knows how China is. The disappearance of FBB for the past few months is something to worry about. Being on house arrest for FBB's troubles is something to sympathize with for FCC. His entire career, not only as an artist but future endeavors unrelated to the ET industry, have been ruined. I would cry too, if I were him, or probably even harder because it's scary. I'm sure his family is being harassed and watched at the moment. I don't think it's fair to treat him like a criminal, when the tax evasion, so far, only involves FBB. However, once the government is after one family member, the entire family will not escape unscathed. I don't have a problem with the government going after those who break the law, but to force the entire family into house arrest isn't just either. That's why it's hard to say what the truth is in this situation. Is it really just tax evasion? Did she really evade taxes? I'm not too sure after all. FCC is still a teenager. He probably doesn't even fully understand what is happening right now. One thing is for certain, though, whoever is after FBB wants to shut her down permanently.
@lynn90 so well said. There could be something more to it than just tax evasion, maybe we'll never know. You are right in saying that the family should not be dragged into the situation because of the actions of one member. Chengcheng is so young and something like this can ruin his whole life's future. The Asian entertainment, educational and social world can be cold, cruel and unforgiving. Speaking of cold and unforgiving, it is worrisome in regards to the disappearance of FBB.
It is easy to hurt and condemn virtually. No responsibility involved.
It would not be fair to pursue Bing Bing's brother if sister is found guilty of tax evasion. But of course anything can happen in China.
Some of the guests were more dressed up than the bride and groom, lol. It seems like it was an intimate, happy wedding for all. Congrats to the couple.
@terrycrews19 you are so right. Unfortunately, Fan Bingbing was a scapegoat in all this. Thing is, she did not have to be. She knows how the government will mow you down, and should've paid up. Again, everything you said is true. We all know that Jackie Chan is a strong supporter and a darling of the chinese government. The only reson his son got so little time jail for his marijuana possession is because on a global and public scale, the judicial system's hands were tied. They had to sentence Jaycee, or it would have started chaos in China, and throughout the world. If that was Fan BB, she would have gotten years in jail, as FBB is no government palm greaser.
Disgraceful, what a hurtful comment to make to someone. She's paying a compliment to Jennifer and admitted that she has not turned into a swan like Jennifer. Why the cruel comment? Why the negativity? Its not her fault she is the daughter of 2 well known celebrities. However, Joyce appears not to have taken advantage and has never come across as rich, spoilt or entitled. She probably has alot of money and can pay for cosmetic surgery to look different. But she has chosen to do the best with what she has, which is great for her.
Congratulations to the couple. I have always appreciated his acting. Kenny has aged well.
@terrycrews19 Everyone does it but it doesn’t make it right. So many blind fans showing support but it’s not an excuse to commit crimes just because others are doing it and getting away with it...
@kmfayb Everyone probably has dirt on everyone in China. In China its whether the government wants to go after you or not.
@kmfayb At least there is no death penalty in China anymore for tax fraud. Punishment shouldn’t be too harsh. Fan Bing Bing should come out of it fine unless the country want to make a great example....
Although this is tough on Fan Chengcheng, his sister is a big girl and should know better not to try and cheat the Mainland government of taxes. I feel bad for him, as this must be hard on him. Young Chengcheng will learn from this, and hopefully not repeat his 'sister's' mistake.
@llwy12 thanks for your reply. I can tell she does looks a bit Korean and it’s sad that she lost her mom when she still a kid.
It's ironic how a lot of people don't like the US, but the US is their primary choice when seeking refuge. We don't know the truth, as we all know news anywhere is filtered by politics. We don't know if FBB really evaded taxes or perhaps she just stepped on someone's toes or perhaps she rejected a higher up. We don't know if she or the people she trusted evaded taxes. There are crooks everywhere. I doubt FBB bookkeeps her own income. It's too much information and she's too busy. She hired professionals. I'm not saying she's innocent but when taxes and legalities aren't your forte, you have to depend on the experts you hired to comply and sometimes, they're not good people and get you into a sea of trouble. It's just sad that as a celebrity and public figure, your face is held responsible. Anything is possible. But even if she evaded taxes, it shouldn't be that serious where she has to flee her home land. Heck, American celebrities just have to pay it back and at worst, jail time. No one knows where she's at. She's in the US one day and the next, still in China. But whatever happens, I hope she's okay, safe, and do the right thing.
@llwy12 That's very endearing. Thanks for the interesting info!
@peanutbutterjelly I think Lucy is attractive, too. I remember first seeing her in Ally McBeal and loving her sexy, hilariously witty, tough character. I watch Elementary here and there and enjoy her performance. She doesn't have soft "pretty" features but she is charismatic and looks timeless. There is a funny fashion blog, Tomandlorenzo.com, that features a wide variety of actors. When you search her name, she is consistently praised for looking fashionable.
@peanutbutterjelly So Asians shouldn’t have opinions on appearance or features of other Asians? We should all stick together and show more patriotism than western countries?. Looks like you have a chip on your shoulder...
Well, the po po can get away with any and everything that mere mortals can't get away with. Thats Babylons boots for you, kekeke.
@anon Well barely anyone knew Andy was in a relationship for 20+ years. There were rumours but nothing certain. Busy actors can find spouses who are very considerate and meet a few times a year. Also Louis if he was to meet that other half in future is not type to ever mention his private life anyway...
@peanutbutterjelly She sounds young and old enough to know who Liu Wai Hung is, who has part retired for a couple of decades? Looks like you are plucking assumptions out of thin air. She sounds more like dedicated TVB fan who has been watching TVB and ONLY TVB for decades. I am straight with my words and opinions on every post. This isn’t an offhand nor isolated comment from me so not sure what you are trying to imply...
@peanutbutterjelly GOOD acting GENERALLY involves a higher level of recognition and popularity which is why I brought it up since @wm2017 doesn't know who the other 2 actors are. You're right, just because Lucy Liu won an Oscar, it doesn't mean she's attractive TO ME.
@anon it's not about who's the better actor here. YouR opinions on Lucy Liu's looks won't change even if she won an Oscar so I don't understand why you're even bringing this up.
@jimmyszeto How about try not being an ass about it? She sounds young. I mean unless you're Gregory Wong then in that case take all the personal offense you want. People here judge the looks of actresses all the time and even more maliciously so I don't understand how her offhand comment warranted such a hostile reply?
@anon I think she's beautiful but you can't argue taste I guess. Although I find it sad that more traditionally Asian features are looked down upon by Asians themselves usually...
