• Very adorable little girl.. I would like to listen to her saying gong xi gong xi!
  • @cassiemissy I dare TVB to throw cake and tea at Liza Wang because that will surely cause a media storm. But they don't want to offend her so they pick on less influential artistes who won't fight back. Shame on TVB.
  • @cassiemissy I know, cheap promotional tactics. I would like WTF? ahaha LOL.... drenched in the show is degrading enough but on live event? sigh.... On a sidenote, I skipped here and there but totally gave up after epi 25 or so..... His role and the mistresses' role was so hard to watch. Sharon Chan's role was also so cheap that it's just shameful to watch. hahaa lol....
  • OMG... seriously? Throwing milk tea over an unsuspecting person in a public event is so degrading.. though it's an act but that very moment, he must have felt mad and embarrassed. Can't they do promos in a more respectful manner..?
  • @cassiemissy Interesting, but I still don't believe true love in the palace when the king have tons of wives, he is basically doing his "job" of producing offsprings only, he is not loving anyone responsibly. Many times, at the end of some dramas, the king would always say I did all those f**** things to actually protect you because you're my true beloved... at that point who would buy that anymore anyway? For the women, they don't really do their "job" as wives according to history, but make use of the chance to live a lavish life. In dramas, they fight and plot against each other to the point it would become the main storyline. So for the true love theme, it never works at all. Only and only when the director unrealistically gave us the fantasy that the king is monogamy i.e. Tuo Ba Jun. I'm predicting Wallace will be greatly disliked for his maltreatment towards Ru Yi and other concubines just like in Journey of Flower, he's not worthy of the women's love and so on da..da...da...

  • @heather concubines plotting with each other is nothing new really.. but this drama promise to touch on true relationship that struggles within the royals... I think that could be something interesting as we all were made to believe that there’s no true love in the Palace. Haha!
  • Oh... so disappointed with the delay as I was so excited with all the preview. It seems to be a quality drama with good costumes and casts! Hopefully it doesn’t get push to 2019......
  • @cassiemissy I dont think they have a problem with her portrayal as a 31 year old, but the pairing with a younger male. I dont understand all the hate either tbh.
  • @elizabeth @cassiemissy @funnlim LOL...what plot holes? According to the delusional TVB management team (including HOG 3’s producer Lau Ka Ho), there is “absolutely nothing wrong” with this series at all. Sure, the ratings suck in HK (ratings actually went below 20 points at one point), but according to LKH, TVB management, and HOG 3’s entire cast and crew, the series is perfect, the acting is stellar, the script is flawless, and audiences are absolutely loving the series...the sole reason for the low ratings (both in HK and Mainland China) is due to a specific group of audiences who are watching “bootleg” versions of the series on illegal platforms. TVB claims that due to the series being “such a great production”, Mainland and HK audiences are “clamoring” to watch ahead and to do so, they are resorting to illegal websites to watch the series, which has an obvious effect on the ratings. In other words, they assert that there is nothing wrong with the series itself and it proves beyond a doubt that LKH was right in that he gave the audiences exactly what they wanted. To lend credence to this “theory”, they supposedly had both Bosco Wong and Louis Yuen write something on Weibo along these lines last week, which of course was “retweeted” by fans, fellow artists, and production team. Also, every single cast member that has been interviewed the past week or so has been giving the same “explanation” (which was also reiterated at HOG 3’s celebratory dinner a few days ago). So yea...this series is awesome because TVB says so and they are never wrong, right? (NOT!!)
  • @elizabeth this series is getting way out of hand.. didn't know that it lasted that many episode.. I enjoy the first half more.. Liza guest appear? Preview to a sequel? Haha
  • Ruby maybe 41 but she doesn't look like her age. I don't see anything wrong with her playing a 30 year old role?
  • Recently TVB dramas plot have these cheesy scenes everywhere and now this title.. are they that desperate?
  • @funnlim you are right! He's just being resentful I think... to turn against your family just because you want to get rich? What kind of plot is this?
  • @Cassiemissy, the drama was shown in 1999/2000 so it is 17 years ago not even 13. I read there was a sequel to the Princess Pearl drama of which Zhou Xie was part of but not Zhou Wei Ruby and Alex because they were too busy. So where was the proof that Zhou Xie was discriminated and looked down? The video clearly show that they were joking about it all. Let us not forget that Ruby was still a rookie hence it was not surprising that she felt awkward. I do not think kissing was common in the late 1990 dramas? These days... kissing seems to be a must. ;-) @melia880, yes, these deep seated ideas of woman should be submissive is outdated though the acceptance of equality in any form is still not as forthcoming in some societies. And why should Ruby apologise for her comments in the show when it was done in humour according to the theme of the talk show? In fact, Ruby added that Zhou Jie was trying too hard (ie. being too realistic). It was not like Zhou Jie lost his job because of that joke? Some haters are just creating ill feelings and discord out of nothing. Try listening to JinXing, China's sharp and witty talk show host. Her words are sharp and precise (I love her show). The comedic lighted hearted talk of Kangxi talk show pales in comparison.
  • @cassiemissy Going to generalize a bit and attribute it to the patriarchal nature of Eastern world. Many women in Asian countries get torn apart for the smallest of things (e.g. being the victim of sexual assault) while men get away with committing sexual assault. Unfortunately, sexism is very deeply ingrained into Eastern culture, no matter how "progressive" some of the more "modern" Eastern countries like HK and Taiwan think they are.
  • It's so obvious that the dude Zhou Jie is trying to make netizens remember him. I think every sane person thinks the same.. why bring this topic up after 13 years? Is he so petty that he kept that little comment from a then young actress till today? From the video, Ruby did not seems intentionally complain that he stuck his tongue out but was just responding to a question by the host? If it was not a news back then why is it a news now? Congratulation Zhou Jie for showing the world your petty side and successfully making headlines everywhere. And funny enough.. many netizens seems to side with that dude causing Ruby to suddenly gain a bunch of haters. And what's wrong with pointing at paparazzi to stop them from intruding their privacy.
