• @coralie Wow I pretty much have the exact same opinion as you on Ruco/Vincent. I don't dislike Ruco, and I think his acting is quite good... but I never went nuts over him like everyone else (and quite frankly just couldn't get myself to understand why everyone was going nuts over him) - and believe me. Vincent, on the other hand - he's always stood out to me (I first noticed him from his special guest star in Can't Buy Me Love), even when his roles were smaller. I wasn't crazy over him before maybe because he didn't have much opportunity, but now I'm a HUGE FAN! He is definitely a star and has handled all his roles this year (and last year) very well. I feel very attached to all his characters, as if I know them myself!
  • @coralie I agree! Vincent had potential from the getgo. I actually first noticed him in Gun Metal Grey where he was able to hold his own against veterans such as Michael and Felix and still make an impression. And no, his success is not due to TVB tailor-making roles for him – just take a look at some of his older series where he was basically playing nobodies…he stood out in those roles too (and not just because he’s tall, lol), despite not having much screen time. One of the marks of a good actor is 1) being able to take a minor role and still manage to shine in it and/or 2) take a crappy, horribly written role/character and breathe life into it, making it into a worthy role….Vincent has proven he can do both, which already speaks to the immense talent and potential he has in acting. No doubt that he will go far, I just hope TVB doesn’t ruin it for him….
  • when ruco was in that pirate drama with grace chan, that's the first time I felt that he had the acting chops. before then, I didn't dislike him, but didn't notice him that much either. however, even with that said, I think I liked his role more than his acting. or maybe it was a case of the role fitting him really well. I don't know why I'm not a fanatic for him like almost everyone was after Brother's Keeper or ROE. but I can tell you I'm a fanatic for Vincent. now this is a man who can fit and deal with any role given to him and make it his own. he shines and it's not a case of the role being tailored to him, because he shines even as a supporting character. now this is how you tell he's winning material.
  • @coralie I can't imagine anyone besting Vincent's performance because it has been tremendous. However there's still a few series to come. Still a chance for Bobby, Michael Miu, Moses, Steven Ma, Ha Yu, Bosco, Dicky, Roger, kenneth and even a Ruco redemption. Though this all depends on if TVB will wait for all these series to finish first before handing out the award.
  • @coralie Like most martial arts stars, their acting starts off as very wooden. Hopefully Phillip is still improving but his progress has been extremely slow.
  • @coralie @linvin8 Normally at this time of the year, there would be a few runners for Best Actor already. So far there has been one runner,Vincent. His performance is miles better than the next best opponent so far.Best supporting actor will be a tremendous battle this year though....
  • Wow I didn't know Philip is already 40! He looks way younger than he is. Geez, it feels like his career is just starting though.
  • Omg yes! Vincent Wong FTW! He's outdone most of the actors this year in terms of role and acting capabilities. Definitely deserve it.
  • Very few veterans pique my interest and devotion, so I rarely look at the cast when I decide to watch something. However, the fact that Dicky is returning for this ONE drama, has me fangirling. I'm most excited for his lineup, too bad it won't air 'till early next year (waste of his talents and popularity, imo.)
  • @coralie Agreed. Why would you value your partner's looks over their health?? Not to mention that he doesn't look that good so skinny anyway... I wonder why Raymond doesn't weight train instead. Maybe being more muscular would be better than just straight up losing weight, especially for guys. Weight is not equivalent of health or attractiveness.
  • @coralie not a fan of the schooling thing either. But HK education is expensive. Best that she doesn't go then wasting mom money to have her skip classes. Also give another kid a spot in the school.
  • @coralie yeah I dont think its responsible for her to be encouraging him to stay at that weight. I know someone like him sam height and weight but he has eating problems.
  • What's up with Asian guys thinking skinny is the way to go? Why not try buff? They can eat more AND look good. Annnnd - his GF is crazy. I think Raymond looked loads better when he had meat prior to his crazy diet.
  • @happybi yep, I think separation would probably help them both grow with more space. but not sure about the schooling thing, though I suppose she could always pick it up again in the future.
  • @coralie Agree. Mum and dad are very good looking.
  • @coralie Yeh. The director does not have good visions of his productions. The settings and ideas are generally good but he tries to implement every plot he can think of into the series along with twist after twist. The twists that he thinks are intelligent while the audience can see are idiotic. In his last 3 main series, less than a third of his episodes have been good. A Fist within Four Walls and Line Walker has the potential to be gems for years to come but they are nothing but slightly above average series now.
  • @jimmyszeto agreed! I loved Legal Mavericks a lot, specifically because of Vincent's acting. Unlike other veterans of the industry who played blind roles, I find Vincent's portrayal much more convincing. this series deserves recognition, much more than TUA. on the other hand, I will only say that I expected TUA to flop + fail. producer jazz boon is really good at the start of his dramas, but he quickly derails once the show reaches midpoint. similar patterns in Line Walker, AFWFW and now TUA. such an irresponsible producer/director.
  • Their baby should be gorgeous seeing as her parents are good looking folks themselves.
  • @jayne I looked at photos of her online and still didn't see what the protruding teeth was all about. they looked fine to me, not like Charmaine Sheh's teeth (she put veneers on so her teeth is actually way too forward to cover her mouth sometimes.) maybe it's one of those things where you need to see her on camera to know what the protruding teeth is all about.
  • @coralie Agree with Go Princess Go, Wuxin: The Monster Killer, Nirvana In Fire, Scarlet Heart, Empresses in the Palace. Wuxin 2 has been released. Haven't watched it yet, heard that while it is not as good as 1, it is still watchable. Caught episode 1 of River God, another China web drama, seems interesting so likely to continue with it.
