• @annebee Yess!! It's crazy, because I thought the same as you too! Lol All I could think about was Chen Xiao spinning around Sun Li as an opera singer in NGCS. He was absolutely breathtaking in there [man and woman scenes] lol.
  • I really cannot accept Yin Zheng as Shang Xi Rui. He looks pretty when dressed up like a woman but his acting is so wooden and he is not handsome when he is in his original self. I think Chen Xiao suits the role more. I don't know why Yu zheng didnt cast him. I've seen Chen Xiao dressed up as a Peking opera singer in his own drama before and he looks so pretty as a girl and handsome as a guy. With the gentle touch of a Peking opera singer and manly at the same time. Huang Xiao Ming and Charmaine really stole the whole drama. They are so natural in their roles. And this is not a gay drama. If it was it wouldn't have got permission to air in China. It's about the friendship between a opera singer and a successful businessman during the second world war. These 2 have 1 thing in common that is their love for peking opera. And the relationship between Xiao Ming and Charmaine is so sweet. They are a very loving couple with a child. He is all this tough, respected businessman outside his home and when he's back home with his wife, he's all this sweet and loving husband. Charmaine is this devoted wife and though she's always nagging, she puts her husband and her family above. She takes care of the entire household. She is a smart woman.
  • @annebee I haven’t watched that series but I’ve seen quite a few series of her and Luo Jin and they are sweet together. The sweetness is always onscreen, same with Ruby and Wallace, so this is for the best really :)
  • @annebee There was a time i also thought they'd match up but i guess it wasn't meant to be. I think Luo is just as good and i love the attention he gives to his wife
  • If she does leave, I guess I won't be able to see her acting with Vengo anymore in the future. I love this pairing. Sigh....
  • Until today, I still wished she had ended up with Wallace Huo. Sigh....
  • I've been following this drama and I do find Reba fitting the role perfectly. She is cute and yet not over acting. Even in the first installment. And Vengo fits the role well too. I cannot imagine another actor playing Dong Hua. I'm not sure those who condemned them so much actually followed this drama. Both their emotional acting is very good. I can't understand what is she actually feeling. It's just annoying each time she responds to Song Xuanren's love. And when they come together, they have great chemistry. They portray their feelings so well just by looking at each other's eyes. I believe the bad ratings was due to the mortal story plot that is a bit draggy amd lack of storyline. And Reba didn't really portray her emotions well in the mortal realm story. She did a better job in the Heavenly realm as Fengjiu when being with Dong Hua. But not with Emperor Song Xuanren in the mortal realm. But Vengo did a good job as Song Xuanren. I could actually feel how hurt he was when his love was unrequited by Xiao Jiu. So I hope the Aranya's dream plot would be better and I can't wait for the Heavenly realm story to be continued. I think it's all because of the script writing. I'm not sure those who condemned Vengo's acting actually watched him in Candle in the Tomb: The Wrath of Time. He handled his role so well. He totally forgo his model image and I was surprised he could actually carry such a role.
  • @annebee I heard that he was already with another woman before their divorce was finalized. It is sad but when someone’s heart is not with you anymore, so it is best to let go. At least she still has her kids. Yes was married once before Lin Wei but it was very brief. So sad that they did not last but hope she can find happiness again one day.
  • They are one of the most beautiful second celebrity second generation. Her girl looks like Jeannie Chan and her boy looks like Henry Lau.
  • @funnlim Wei Lin hooked up with some young actress like very young. And when he was criticised about an affair, he said he has been distant with Mimi for a long time. They just stayed married because of their children. So they eventually divorced after the kids have grown up. Wei Lin was Mimi's second marriage I think. Her first was quite a brief one. Wei Lin and her used to act together often in Malaysia and Taiwan so that's how they started dating and eventually got married.
  • @annebee it depends on the situation they are facing... Kara Wai won best actress and she not under TVB, but I do agree Roger won already a few times so he totally got ignored for that reason.
  • @annebee That’s what I mean. The award isn’t a ‘won’ award based on merit. It is given by the bosses to whoever they feel they want to give it to. A veteran or support actor can give the most amazing performance but may end up not even slightly considered...
  • @jimmyszeto Roger has won Best Actor a few times. Besides, he is not TVB's employee anymore, so he no chance of winning at all.
  • @annebee Actually, not really. Shaw Brothers Pictures now is jointly owned by CMC (Mainland businessman Li Ruigang’s company) and TVB...the original Shaw Brothers’ descendants may still have a stake in the company, but even if they do, it is insignificant and they are definitely not the ones calling the shots. Shaw Brothers really isn’t that much better than TVB, it’s just that they have access to a wider array of artists and behind-the-scenes people to work with because they don’t apply TVB’s policies to their operations (for the most part at least)...and nowadays, they also try to play down the association with TVB as much as possible, which definitely helps, given TVB’s bad reputation...
  • @coralie Real Ting is rich family second generation. His brother is actor Allen Ting. He has his own PR Company. So I don't he is living off Mariam.
  • Sir Run Run Shaw treated his employees very well and that's how TVB was at its prime for decades. After he stepped down and passed on to the new management, everything turned downhill. But his wife was still in control. It became worse like now after he passed away and his wife stepped down too. When TVB was sold. It's just greedy people running a company like any other companies. No longer people who have passion in the entertainment industry running the company. Garbage management , garbage products. Do people know why some ran off to Shaw Brothers? Well, because it's still run by the Shaw. Not the 2 matriarch women.
  • Kenneth is such a mommy's boy. So filial son. I doubt his mom would accept such a daughter in law. It's still Asia and it's really a disgraceful thing in front of relatives and friends to be accepting a daughter in law who has a history of cheating with a married man. Some more it was such publicized news with so many famous people involved. Do we actually think Kenneth will reconcile with her? It's like having the green hat worn all over again. Lol
  • @annebee No one is perfect but I have a good feeling Geoffrey was a great guy. Sadly they were not fated or meant to be. Hope she moves on and that Geoffrey is in a happier and better place now.
