• @littlefish - I think we all agree to an extent that it's not professional of AB to ask for special treatment. @peanutbutterjelly - it's about the spirit of her professionalism. it doesn't impact anyone, but it's not fair to anyone else. that's the main point of contention.
  • @kidd majority of the western world has a weird view of China. they probably think we're all mystical and kung-fu fighting lol.
  • @coralie I hear where you're coming from but in this case I would think that her not filming (even though she absolutely has the right to due to the circumstances) would cause more of an inconvenience, no? I can also already imagine the headlines: 'Diva Angelababy refuses to work and uses lady business as excuse' (or something like that). If someone doesn't show up to work, the work still needs to be done and usually by someone else. I don't watch the show but if it's a variety I'd imagine they'd need someone else to fill her place or rearrange some stuff at least. I agree about the BBC bit by the way but that wasn't the focus of my comments. @littlefish "How do you know she is not convenient anyone? To accommodate her, they cut her some slack, is that not inconvenient other?" No? If you were in high school and your classmate got her period so she didn't have to participate in P.E. does that inconvenience you in any way? You'd still have to participate yourself whether your classmate shows up or not. As far as I can tell from the article, she just didn't get soaked as much in cold water as the other cast members. The cast members are getting soaked anyway whether she's being accomodated or not. It's not like she's going out of her way to request to be put in a hot tub or anything so, again, how is she inconveniencing anyone from what we can read in the article? Okay, the viewers (who didn't know the circumstances) that first got pissed at her I can get behind. But after this article and still going after her for something like this just screams petty to me.
  • @coralie here here! People are making it like calling a day sick unprofessional, when you look at the job and what it requires, treating it with respect even if you have to take yourself off the list, is what professional is! And yes, I agree BBC is blowing the news up more than it needs to be. @peanutbutterjelly How do you know she is not convenient anyone? To accommodate her, they cut her some slack, is that not inconvenient other? And again, missing 1 episode and you know it is a one off is not bad. Your analogy, pregnancy, there were news AB only did a short amount of time of filming for General and I, and the rest of the filming was using body double, I’m not holding that against her upon reading the article, which used her as an example of today actress being lazy. I understand the article tried to sell a point, but dislike the article for using her, I don’t jump the bandwagon of hating AB because I remembered some other news mention she was pregnant while filming General and I (haven’t seen that either). My point is you assumed all who voiced against her conduct is due to being anti fan instead of seeing our POV.
  • @peanutbutterjelly I understand your analogy, but it's not really applicable. If I were at a job and I'm feeling unwell, I still have to do everything assigned to me and do it well. That's the meaning of professionalism. Of course, if my health issues cause me to be unable to do a duty, asking someone to go light on me for assignments is definitely not professional. I'd just go home and not take the assignment instead. If her colleagues knew that she was on her period and pitied her, that's another story. But it sounded like she asked for it herself. Olympian Fu Yuanhui still gave it her best shot competing against others in spite of her physical exhaustion, as an example. Bowie is another example, though her case sounded weird, as menstruation does not cause internal wounds or anything, so I'm not sure what that had to with her pelvic inflammation. Maybe she was using a pad and the bacteria in the water contaminated that. With that said, I'm not saying to ask celebrities give up their health for the sake of playing a game. That's harsh and ridiculous. We're not even stringent with Hollywood celebs, so I don't expect that from my Asian counterparts. I don't really have an issue with AB in this situation, but I can see why netizens are unhappy with her. Can you say it's professional? Not really. But is it okay to make this request for the sake of her health? Absolutely. My main problem is that BBC made this stupid article about how she's breaking taboos or something. Firstly she ain't the first one. Secondly, it's really not that sensational. They totally overdramatized this. Period is period. I think most Chinese people don't particularly care, unless they're uber traditional or superstitious.
  • @coralie yep, I totally agree. Nuff respect to Fu Yuanhui.
  • @coralie lol what beef me is Lu Han’s fee! He’s the worst actor ever, and his feature is terrible unless the right makeup, lightning, clothes, set, etc. so he’s like a product of good production, like MV, not drama! Yet his fee is as high as Wallace Hou??? Like that dude needs to get real, but hey, keep pushing his fee up, maybe then people can’t afford him and so he can stop being in drama! That dude is an eyesore!
  • She's hardly breaking taboos. She had to be pushed to confront the issue in public. I give a lot more credit to Olympian Fu Yuanhui who publicly announced she couldn't compete at the optimal level, because her period was here.
  • Da fawk. Huo Yitian just joined showbiz not too long ago. The fee he commands is outrageous, considering he's still a relative newbie in the field. I actually think the men's pay this time around is a little lopsided and unfair. I mean ABB earning more than her hubby, for her [email protected] acting skills? Some of the women's fees are understandable. FBB and Yang Mi both have their own production houses, so they can negotiate their own pay. Surprised that Zhang Liying isn't on the list, though. Sun Li & Zhang Ziyi are established and veterans of both TV and films; they deserve their pay.
  • I gotta say, I really like Annie Liu! She's prettier than I remember. Her Cantonese pronunciation isn't the best, but I could understand. I think she made a good effort with speaking her lines. Her acting is decent, too, in spite of her limited understanding of Canto. And she's SO good looking. I was glued to her face the entire time; talk about scene stealer. Michelle Yim's 10 minute guest star was really weird haha. I definitely did not anticipate her getting killed. But even if killed, I expected the story to do flashbacks for her character. Maybe it will down the line, but if not, what a waste lol. Nancy is okay so far; not much going on. There's some secret liaison she has with Kenneth, but it's been bland. Nothing interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing Chrissie Chau. But for some reason, I don't think I'm as excited about her as I am about Annie.
  • Moses is so cute off-screen. I mean, Bernice scandal aside, the fact he blushes easily means he is embarrassed easily. And that means he has a sense of humility and is shy. Usually people like that tend to be very nice :). Louis Cheung seems very tactful and a gentleman; otherwise he wouldn't have won over Kay Tse. I'm not sure about the rest. I feel in order to appear very approachable and nice, they have to be very savvy with most people. And that is a matter of manipulation and not genuine. It's hard to tell the difference between the two.
  • I know I will catch flak for saying this, but I must say - the entire cast is comprised of classical beauties (except Nancy Wu & Steven Ma)! Everyone else is a showstopper. The costumes are tacky and not elegant at all, but it's alright. I know I'm in for a [email protected] story already...let's just hope it's not so bad that it's unwatchable.
  • Wow the baby's skin is like milk. Dang. Cute baby girl tho!
  • @bubbletea girl, you know this for sure or you deduced it? Cus rumor mill is one thing, but knowing for a fact is another...(in regards to annoying HK actress.)
  • @plaru i just saw her recently in 3L3W's movie. Nope, she's still emotionally detached. That role gave room for showcasing emotions, but she still didn't manage to evoke any feelings in me. She's too bland.
  • @plaru I'm an equal opportunist hater. I say the same stuff about the actress regardless if she's had plastic or not, based off her talent and works. Her looks aren't the main concern here. It's because of her expressions (or lack there of) that ppl don't like her. Angelababy has the same reputation around here as LYF.
  • @coralie What amazes me is how she has managed to come this far by purely relying on her (average) looks alone, because let's be real... this girl has the emotional range of a sandwich! It boggles my mind that she's often hailed as one of the most attractive celebrities in China. Take off the make-up and there's nothing about her that will set her apart from the average crowd. Personality-wise, she's about as interesting as a piece of cardboard. She's the definition of a "Plain Jane". Some people are just born lucky, I suppose. She has one heck of a manager (her mom?), I'll give her that.
  • @coralie uhm, maybe I’m not good at this makeup thing but she looks totally different from the pink shirt photo to her current look. I guess if I see a bare face photo I will see it better, but currently, it felt like she fixed her nose. And she did something to her lips.
  • @littlefish yup! this article sums up everything about her that makes her a terrible actress: https://quartzy.qz.com/1142658/imdb-rating-disneys-pick-for-mulan-liu-yifei-is-one-of-chinas-worst-actresses/. sometimes a pretty face can be one's worst insecurity and downfall, especially if one expects to rest on this laurel for life.
