• In the original story, from what I heard, Yang Zi's character fell out of love for Cheng Yi after what happened to the two of them. She later chose her companion as her love. In reality, this is probably the better ending for her. But in dramas, we yearn for star-crossed lovers...hence she will probably end up with Cheng Yi given his stardom.
  • I mean...all the power to him, as long as there are no false expectations, this is good enough. Now if women can say the same thing and not get marked a sloot then we have true equality.
  • Hm. I've never been impressed with his acting, but it is true he has reached the peak of his career with NIF. Hard to top that unless he wants to go BL lol.
  • I agree with him, but I also think he is missing a key piece of the story. The dramas at TVB all revolve around tired themes of jobs/careers and not character development. Back in the olden days, TVB was still working with strict budgets, tiresome cast and crew working behind the scenes and favoritism. But they ushered in a new era of TV trends and popularity for Cantonese dramas. It's not because of anything that was happening with production teams, etc. It was literally because of focus for the plot, character development and great scripts. The script/plot and chemistry between cast makes up 70% of a drama's popularity. Look at Exorcist's Meter...cheap budget, high script effort, good quality cast....
  • @bizzybody His role did him no favors in Eternal Love lol. But his acting was par for course. Try him again in Rattan, you might find him easier to watch.
  • @coralie First saw him in Love O2O as KO. I actually hated his self-pitieous face in Eternal Love and sorry to say, ever since then stayed away from his dramas.
  • You know, I had my doubts whether he was a veritable actor because I knew his looks definitely helped him a lot in getting roles. I already liked him in Eternal Love, but didn't find him all that great in The King's Woman or The Flame's Daughter. Didn't wow me anymore. But in Rattan, just this ONE scene - the beginning scene when he was horrified by Jing Tian - convinced me he has the acting chops. It was so vividly done - not pretentious or rehearsed or recycled look at all. That sealed the deal for me.
  • @theyenman - i mean, agreed. even pre-covid, he didn't look the trendiest lol. this covid excuse just gave him a good excuse, but he can definitely up his game a lot more. maybe he's not the type to care about this aesthetics, though. i know some guys like that. if linda cares, then she would make him put some effort in. so don't think she cares.
  • Jeremy looks pretty homely in the photo. But he's not in ebiz, so he doesn't need to look the part just because his wife's famous. He could try a little harder though lol. I actually do see Linda in her daughter; her son definitely looks like her husband though.
  • @coralie i think i just in youtube typed 解構心機女 japnaese
  • @coralie You said it perfectly there. It would have been a tragedy if he didn't get to show his skills and stayed at TVB to be treated like the average veteran till death. Liu Kai Chi is naturally talented. He was only in a few scenes in The Bund when he first started out after completing acting class but was brilliant. Got promoted to main villain for the sequel straight afterwards...
  • @jimmyszeto it is indeed disgraceful and tragic that such an acting talent had been wasted and buried in tvb's factory for so long. i'm glad he was given an opportunity to showcase his skills before he passed away. i am ashamed to say i wasn't aware how great he was either until he left tvb and his career soared. in that sense, i'm happy that he left a mark on everyone and proved/vindicated himself. hope he RIP knowing that he has distinguished himself as an acting maestro.
  • @m0m0 that's actually...really interesting lol. how did you hear about the japanese show and where to watch lol? well, i guess i stand corrected in that case since i didn't know the HK show is the blatant copy of the J-version.
  • @coralie When watching Liu Kai Chi’s acting in Infernal Affairs II as the triad family uncle who didn’t say a word the whole movie apart from expressions and body language, and compare being put in that minor comedy relief role in A Taste of Love then it’s obvious that TVB has been a disgrace for wasting the talent of this fine actor for decades.
  • @coralie Understand. Lui Kai Chi is a terrific actor who wasted his prime from the early 90s-end2000s playing supporting and minor roles at TVB and sometimes just as comedy relief. This was after supporting or 2nd lead alongside the likes of the five tigers, Ray Lui and Chiw Yun Fat in the 80s. It wasn’t until he left TVB and moved into the movie scene for good that he became appreciated. It feels like he had a more lot to give like you said. Imagine his achievements if he had left TVB a decade earlier or 2 earlier....
  • @tt23 omg we never even saw him fulfill his potential. This is unjust! He had so much more life to give his roles....I'm really sad. First Ng Man Tat and now Liu Kai Chi.
  • @kidd The actress wasn't anyone famous and she got replaced last minute because she was involved in some scandal. It was webdrama, "Love of Thousand Crows/Killing of Three Thousand Crows." You can read more about it here: https://www.programmersought.com/article/43884136923/.
  • I'm so stinking glad Asian racism is finally being discussed and brought onto the table for further dissection. It's unfortunate what led to this being in the spotlight, but it's nevertheless a step in the right direction. I've always felt racist undertones to people who make assumptions about me just based on how I look, but not enough support from those around me who try to gaslight me into thinking that $hit's in my head. Or I'm too scared to speak up because I don't want physical confrontation. It's so cathartic seeing people in our community stepping up with the voices and really lending credence to how we felt. I hope it's kept up.
  • @coralie "No matter how badly someone behaves, we still gotta give them a way to repent and live" Agree.
