• @coralie That has always been China’s mantra though. To them, making money isn’t as important as saving face and continuing to promote their Communist agenda (and blaming everyone but themselves for their country’s issues). They (the CCP / Mainland govt) are pretty much the only ones who don’t see the ridiculousness of their actions and words. It’s just like with this whole HK protest thing, the Mainland govt keeps insisting that the “evil Western nations” are the “black hands” behind the protests – one of the Beijing govt officials even outright said that the U.S. “instigated” the protests, and “forced” Hong Kongers to take to the streets to go against their mother country and therefore the U.S. “owes the entire world an explanation.” (so they are basically saying that Hong Kongers would never go against Mainland China on their own accord because they love their motherland so the fact that they are protesting must be due to outside forces rather than any wrongdoing or problems with the Mainland government). Seriously, anyone who believes the garbage that the Mainland govt spews out need to get their brains checked. Basically, Beijing views anyone in the West who makes any type of comment about anything going on in China or HK (whether it’s a positive comment or a negative one) as “meddling in China’s affairs” (yes, @coralie, from your one comment alone, in Beijing’s eyes, you are “meddling in China’s affairs” — you better not set foot in China because they might arrest you, lol...but hey, I’m right there with you, since by virtue of repeatedly criticizing the Mainland govt, I’ve pretty much committed treason, lol). It’s sad and pathetic, but that’s the way they’ve operated for the past 70 years and it’s not going to change— if anything, it’s just going to get worse...
  • How is this insulting to doctors and women??
  • I guess China doesn't care about generating revenue at a time when they're strapped for money with the ongoing trade war.... Whoever's helming these decisions need to get fired. Only people who have too much time on their hands and is totally ignorant will make decisions that 1) harms the economy, 2) ignore the people and 3) make such a ridiculous excuse. If they want to brainwash their citizens, just cancel all broadcasted TV except mantras that promotes their own propaganda, for godsakes. Do it like N. Korea! That's the way to go.
  • "Even if I apologized to every single person who I have hurt, I will not be forgiven." He got that right.
  • Well, at least we know there's some sort of mental/physical reason behind it...though it's hard to say if it's a front, so he can continue his dilly-dallying ways. If the diagnosis is real, he should be going to therapy and getting help mentally and physically. Instead he's out meeting different women and dating as if everything's okay. Too convenient to assign blame to his diagnosis rather than on his own actions.
  • @coralie exactly ! How did he think he would get away with nothing ? This is too crazy. I’m preparing my peanuts to hear about the rest of the story
  • i've been in that workaholic phase before...i was miserable, but internally felt very secure lol. once that situation wasn't optimal anymore, i peaced out and now i can stop and smell the roses. i have a hard time putting blame on workaholics for that reason...
  • i mean, he doesn't exactly have a pristine past. i don't know what these women see in him to give him chance after chance even knowing his unsavory history. he's the tristan thompson of the hk ebiz. but, even when they do give him a chance, he squanders it away at a moment's notice. i don't know how he figures he can get away with abruptly separating from his ex-gf and announce his marriage/child to another within two days? dude's a mess.
  • @coralie Westerners in general are more accepting of people with flawed looks with character, whereas east Asians and Chinese especially are very discriminatory and harshly judgemental of those who don't have the superficial 'perfect' looks.
  • @anon i feel that way about vince vaughn, but occasionally, i still watch his movies. his face subtracts from my enjoyment of the film, but doesn't kill it. a movie is more than just its main character. you might even end up enjoying the story for what it is, even if you don't like a performer.
  • @coralie I agree with you and this is how I feel 99% of the time. Unfortunately, for me, her appearance just detracts from every other "good" quality that she has. It's one of those people that you see in life that you just straight-up dislike.
  • @coralie Yeap. It does feel like that sometimes. Like how they marketed Captain Marvel. The promotion put all the focus on her being a woman instead of her being a superhero. It's like they are shouting 'See?! We are making a FEMALE LED superhero movie!!!'
  • @m0m0 but they also put the spotlight on actresses like constance wu, ali wong, gemma chan who are definitely attractive and varied in looks. but you bring up a good point. it's the same reason why i ask why, in the international modeling community, asians with very stereotypical/caricature looks are found. and not ones that are considered beautiful by the asian community. part of me thinks this is obvious discrimination/insensitivity at work, but then part of me realizes this might be good for showcasing the various templates for asian 'beauty' in the world. people shouldn't fit into the mold of what's considered beautiful in order to make it big - western society is in some ways, redefining what that means and helping to excavate some facets of aesthetics that we Asians are ashamed of, in hopes of helping the world see its beauty? i know for sure chinese people would never allow a model with cross-eyes model and represent them, yet western society would, like kate moss.
  • @kidd aptly put lol. a movie for the SJWs of the world, even though they comprise just a sliver of the population. but representation & inclusivity is good - although i wished they did it in a more low-key fashion. right now, it just feels like they're trying to hype up a movie and exploit all these minorities for money's sake. not because they actually give a crap about minorities.
  • I agree that Awkwafina isn't good-looking by most people's standards, but there's something likable about her that makes her shine. the great thing about talent is that it's universally accepted, even if it's under bad packaging.
  • @coralie https://www.jaynestars.com/news/michelle-ye-disses-chen-zihan-on-tv-youll-always-be-lead-no-2/ ohh it's right here....Yeah, what she said is probably for ratings as well but I never like MY so perhaps that's why I always find her a bit arrogant and I don't see anything special about her. Looks or acting wise.
  • @coralie I saw that clip long ago on the supporting actress. She is not at all popular I think but I can try to find it when I have time hahaa..Lol..Shes older like probably late 30's or early 40. She is ok looking too and she married a much younger guy that is actually not bad looking that is also I think not very popular. Like I don't even know their chinese or English names unless I am on that clip. lol haha
  • @wm2017 To be fair, Michelle only did that out of retaliation 'cause Miss Lu (Mr. Xiao Mo's ex-GF) made a declaration on her social media that he was two-timing her during their relationship. She defended him and tried to sue for defamation of character. I don't think that's wrong, per se, as she was doing this out of loyalty and protective of her BF + her own image. Lots of female stars had to deal with this kind of drama from their partner's ex...like Tracy Ip and Zhang Ziyi, though they chose to stay out of it. Some people are just much more protective than others. I don't know about the supporting actress story. Where'd that come from? I suppose it is harder for celebrity couples to stay together for long. But I just find the flaunting of the relationship even though it's heading to its demise, so stupid & immature...but I can see why they do that so the papz doesn't write negative things and cause more drama.
  • @coralie Actually, I have found her to be overconfident in everything. Well, saw clips here and there on youtube sometimes. When she replies to rumors on other male leads she will say something like oh yes there's always a possibility as we are both single blab blab. One time this supporting female actress was really pissed as she said something like I was at least a lead I can say this and that as I have experienced it and you are only a support or something in that direction. She either needs to tone down that confidence or say fake niceties. She even made remarks at an ex saying she should look for her own shortcomings or something in that sense on social media? What was she trying to proof I got the dude now? What kind of current g/f comments and blasts past g/f w/your current beau? What do you know of that relationship? So weird. As far as announcing I love you today and breaks ups tomorrow. It happens alot either Hollywood stars or Asians. Think Chris Pratt & Tatum Channing? They praised their exes like they are soulmates/goddess how long did those last? haha That Chris one already gotten hitched w/a much younger gal after the divorce. Again, Reality Bites!!!
  • @myxx i think the paleness bothers me more than the stick figure. does that make me a colorist?
