• Loving couple and hands on parents. Good on them. Moses is clearly losing hair / going bald. His hairline is rescinding. He doesn't age well... Wonder if TVB will still promote him.
  • @jjwong I agree. If Grace is truly serious about improving her acting, then actually show us rather than sitting there whining about it and saying how hurt she is. Sisley showed us by actually taking acting lessons (and from none other than someone like Anthony Wong, who is a brilliant actor) – and obviously it’s paying off because we are actually seeing her improve. While I don’t doubt that Grace is being honest, she still comes off as being arrogant – like oh well, I tried my best so if you don’t like it, too bad (though I guess we should be grateful that she didn’t take the Wong Jing route and bash the audience as being idiotic and having bad taste for not liking her acting, lol). That’s definitely not the right attitude to have when you’re a newbie and have no real talent or experience to boast of. Speaking of newbies and improvement -- I really appreciate what veterans such as Gallen Lo and Eddie Cheung said in interviews recently about how fortunate they were to have entered the industry (back in the1980s) during a time when there were a lot of senior actors who were willing to take them under their wing and mentor them. Outside of acting class, a lot of what they learned came from the veteran actors/actresses they worked with during filming, many of whom would give them advice and tips on how to do their scenes better. More importantly though, the younger generation back then was more humble and more willing to accept seniors’ advice – they took the opportunity to work with these veterans as a way for them to improve. Nowadays, TVB lacks veterans first of all, so it’s essentially “newbies leading newbies”, but attitude-wise, today’s generation of artists are more self-centered. I’ve actually read interviews from several veteran artists who have talked about trying to give advice to newbies, but are met with a “you’re outdated, what do you know about today’s acting environment and why should I listen to you” attitude…so of course the veterans are no longer inclined to mentor or teach newbies anymore (I wouldn’t either if I were in their shoes -- who would want to get constantly slapped in the face by the people they are trying to help?)
  • @jjwong Way too many hiccups. The series is not balanced well but I do love both Eddie and Adia, the old ones! You should watch a K rom so that you can just see why this is k romance on a bad day. But too many k romance is also boring where they are essentially the same.
  • @jjwong Well, part of it is TVB too and what info they choose to let the HK media report on for the series, especially when the series hasn’t wrapped filming yet. It is actually more within TVB’s control than most people think. So in a way, TVB is trying to use the sex factor to draw attention to the series or at least generate talk. Of course, they are “pros” at this already after doing it for so long, which I guess is why it annoys me because it goes back to the age-old issue of lack of respect for audiences. As for the ratings – the sad part is that it’s not even TVB who “celebrates” the ratings….most of the time, it’s the series’ leads using their own money to treat cast and crew to dinner when a series has a decent showing on the ratings front, since El Cheapo TVB is not going to want to spend unnecessary money when they don’t have to.
  • @jjwong that's because other than Kevin, she is nothing. Wonder what the judges saw in her to let her be Miss HK. At least Sisley is improving. But grace Chan makes my hair stand watching her. I refuse to watch 张保仔 again because of her...otherwise I re watched several Ruco's dramas.
  • @jessehsuan IKR?!? Lol. Reporters will always ask but she doesn't have to drag him in so much. A simple, yea he supports me and encourages me to do the best, would have suffice. Then go back to talk about the event or herself or something. Of course you think your own bf is a great actor. Duh.
  • @megamiaow She would garner sympathy, forgiving and understanding if she says what you said. Your spin shows humbleness and that she recognized her weaknrss and continued to improve. The way she answered, however, shows her arrogant. Counting the things she had done (e.g. talked to producer and the likes) is like whining, well hey I done all I can so if you don't think I do well then it's your (audience) fault. It's good not letting the negative get to you, but uses still to improve upon and reflect instead of just ignoring them. Maybe it's just lpst in translation...
  • "Receipts" is oddly used here. I expected hospital bills that shows she was admitted and the charges from delivery lol. "Evidences" is a better word choice. Netizens sure have lots of free time and so "mo liu." I don't particularly care for this couple but to start crap like this that can potentially hurt the baby relationship is over the line. How childish. SMH.
  • @heunjx I'm skeptical... @funnlim I did see the deduction part where Sisley was accused of stealing. It was indeed OTT a nd laughable. They could've simply say let's watch the CCTV. To me, KM is trying to be "chok" and failing miserably. He's more natural being goofy than stoic; the latter just make him look un-interesting and *yawn* I'm watching No No Girl too. I don't watch K-rom so it's "new" for me. I agree that they could've tone down the hiccups but the concept is cute. Aida's acting cute is enjoyable and appropriate even though she's old.
  • @jjwong I watched episode 1 and I gave up. The story at that point is insanely insane. The whole way it was set up and solved or rather theorised to me is so OTT. Kenneth Ma is a great guy but I have had it with his puffed up lips whenever he speaks his line. I'd rather he speak with a smile all the time. Never regretted giving up. Focusing on No No Girl and am also irritated by the half hearted k romance and the hiccups.
  • @jjwong Aw you should continue! This drama has a solid plot.
  • @llwy12 How these scenes work on some audiences is beyond my comprehension. At least they seem to be over rape scenes. Yea, it would more original so I doubt it'll happen. They're not one to be outside the status quo. Lol. @aiya Their ratings have been drowning in a bathtub for awhile IMO. I remember 40 was big success. Then lately it's 30 where they throw parties. I wouldn't be surprise if they'll celebrate at 20s soon enough.
  • @jjwong Most importantly, TVB does not want to be the ONE to take a bath on this drama in terms of ratings.
  • I couldn't get through eps 1. The camera looks like a dream. It's fuzzy and fake, like front camera's beautification on a phone. It's annoying. Had to quit. I do like Matt the little that I seen. Sisley seems to be improved as well. Kudos to them both.
  • ^ lol. It'll be hillarious if they have a big bath scene in the end of the series xD
  • Eddie was in brief in one of the eps. Watched up to 10. Surprising, I rather quite like this series. Everyone is so cute, both men and female casts, both vets and youngins. The story is not complex but is entertaining, funny and lighthearted. Like, like, like, like.
  • @summerdale Unspired, nothing to see, same old appeal or camera angle. Like an old prune xD i.e.bare shoulders or back from waist up isn't exactly sexy. Shower scenes = bare shoulder. Seducing scenes = bare back. Rape scenes = neck up, moving up and down. I'm not advocating or saying all these need to strip down to rated XxX. It's just they're not big deal, yet so much buzz or try to create buzz when one of these scene happens.
  • @jjwong Oh right I read gold medals and assumed it was the one standing on the number 1 step lol Yeah the one on the right is good looking but he does look like splitting image of Jo Ma with softer features
  • The dude is only taking a break yet papz acts like he's retiring or dying, lol. I find it distasteful for her to air out his feelings and what he confided in her.
  • Lol. Why is it not okay to talk about her look when her whole career and life builds and emphasizes on her look? It is quite easy to come down from the high horse. It does not look gallant ;) As for her "humble" upbringing, it is of the pass. What matters now is she's set for life as far as finance. Besides, how many rags-to-riches don't have a humble pass?
