• I actually quite like HXM as a person. I do not think he is talentless, but he needs a lot of guidance from the directors and co-stars when he is in front of a camera to reign in his emotions. He does his best when he is playing subtle characters and I wish his manager would realise that and stop signing him in a string of stupid roles where he is let loose to overact. HXM tends to give me that the impression that he can be overconfident and he enjoys the attention, which opens him up to the spotlight as well as the criticism that comes with it.
  • I think that really speaks to how bad a living for an artist back in those days where they had to make extra income from Cat 3 films. To me, making cat 3 films is just another job for them. It doesn't make them more cheap or less professional. In fact, many ex-Cat III artistes have great acting. But what bothers me is that how many artists were duped into starring in cat 3 films without being warned beforehand: David Siu, Lawrence Ng, Leslie Cheung, Moses Chan, etc.. It highlights how the underbelly of the industry preys on the unfamous artistes.
  • I wish Francis can stop filming for TVB because they don't give him good roles that are worthy of his acting. And if TVB is venturing on another joint project from the Mainland, I hope they learnt from the failure of "Master of Destiny" and don't repeat the same mistake. Too many characters means the script has to be very intense to let ALL the characters shine. If not, then it would just be another babysitting project. Stars can add to the hype and popularity, but a crappy plot will still be a crappy plot. If I want to watch nice scenery that I would watch a travel show instead than put up with a crappy plot. TVb really needs to put more effort int he substance than the gloss on top before they go off promoting it as another A-class project.
  • @elizabeth I agreed with you. I also find older man more attractive especially when I was in my 20's. Maybe I was younger then and with less experience so I get overwhelmed by someone older who seems so much wiser than myself
  • @elizabeth I said "most," not all. I want to clarify and emphasize that point. And it also depends on how much of an age gap there is. Over a decade is too much for my personal taste; yours may be entirely different. And maturity and age aren't always positively correlated, so younger men can definitely still be as mature if not more mature than some men that are even older. So in that case, why date someone so much older? Of course, everyone has their prerogatives in dating preferences; just because I'm not attracted to older men doesn't mean some women aren't. I just don't think majority of the ones that do like men significantly older than them are in it for the right reasons. And you (not 'you' personally, but in general) have to also think of the repercussions of finding someone much older than yourself. In 30 years time, will both of you be at the same stage in life? Especially these women that are marrying men two decades older than themselves. When they're 50, their husbands will be in their 70s and much more incapable of enjoying their lives at a 50s level.
  • @cutie777 Looking once may be a reflex, but leering and rubbing are a different matter.
  • I just hope it won't turn out like " A Clear Midsummer Night". That was horrible and cliche. I just hope they put more effort into the plot for " The Prosecutor".
  • @coralie Why should age be a matter for a couple to be together, as long as both are legal and not homewreckers? Speaking from experience, I have always been attracted to older men. It is not intentional but I tend to get along better with people older than me. I find that we are more on the same page in terms of intelligence and maturity. People have set me up with men around my own age but they tend to be more self-centred and not as accommodating. And I find some men really mature much later than women of the same age, and it can get frustrating when they are still trapped in their teenage party mentality and I just want to settle down. Financially, I am pretty independent with my own career and assets, so I am not attracted to specific men for money. Though having a partner who is financially stable makes less stress in life. So goosebumps or not, some people do prefer older partners because they just feel more at ease. Not all of them are golddiggers. But that issue aside, whether Wing is truly with Leon for him or his money, only time will tell. Good luck to them both.
  • @llwy12 I did a Wikipedia search and the only thing that seems familiar to me is the duet he did with Justin Lo for "Line Walker".
  • @elizabeth No, he's not with TVB (at least not currently, though he did work for them briefly in the past). Wilfred is a singer (started in the industry after winning a singing contest) turned actor (though he's not tremendously active in acting), plays on the Celebrity Soccer team, and is (or was) part of the Andy Hui / Sammi Cheng friend crowd. Not surprising if you don't remember him, as, like @sport3888 said, Wilfred never really amounted to much despite being in the industry oh like 20 years. I think that's one of the reasons why so many people were shocked that Joey would get together with Wilfred, as he kind of had a reputation already for being useless with little chance to amount to much while Joey was already a mega star with a continued steady path to fame. The few things that Wilfred was "known" for in the media were mostly negative-- the two that come to mind (aside from him and Joey getting together and their subsequent fallout with Denise Ho) were the "dirty hands" incident (which he got lambasted for by practically everyone, both within the industry and outside of it, which resulted in him having to "go into hiding" for awhile) and him spilling the beans on Andy and Sammi already being married (which Andy was publicly pissed about -- I can't remember the exact details but I recall Andy saying that Wilfred is not his friend and so the media shouldn't be listening to him on matters regarding himself and/or Sammi).
  • Sorry but I still can't remember who Wilfred is. Is he with TVB?
  • @llwy12 Another example is Catherine Hung and Andy Zhang Dan Feng. When they first got together, everyone he was in it for the 15 mins of fame, even though Catherine was not rich or famous, she was quite well known in the 90's. And with him being the younger man, people never thought that he would stay around for her when she got older. But they are still going strong now with cute kids. Same with Bobby and Raymond Wong who had a lot of criticism since they married rich wives and got called "soft rice eaters". There are definitely male golddiggers out there, but we should not stereotype all men who date more successful women in that category. Same with women who date more successful men. Those who will make it will pull through and get closer, and those who won't gradually drift apart. Both sides need to give, compromise and support each other through the hard times.
  • Leon and Kathy took a break from each other and he left her. But my feeling that he will return to her.
  • Maggie was a Vietnamese refugee. She was originally from a rich family in South Vietnam, but only she and her younger brother survived with their bodyguard, Bobby (their dad was a general) but was separated so she and Bobby ended in HK Refugee camp. Maggie had to leave for Australia (cos saw Sydney Opera House with snow which is hilarious) in order to apply for her brother to leave Vietnam. So she broke up with Leon to let her brother have a better life. She never really felt accepted by Leon's dad who was prejudiced against Vietnamese people. This was TVB's way of showing the social conflict HK was in at the time regarding the fate of the Vienamese refugees.
  • What a cute girl! Looks like a doll! Want to gently pinch her chubby cheeks. Oh!
  • @wm2017 That is not a nice thing to say about Nadia since she was very sick at the time was bloated from the meds. Steroids cause weight gain and fluid retention. And she was stressed about her ovarian tumour as well. She was probably more worried about her physical and mental health and did not take care of her looks.
  • Slightly off topic, does anyone know if Law Lok Lum and his ex-wife are still living together? The last I heard from them, they were still happily sharing an apartment and staying cool as friends.
  • @blest62 I think he got attacked with high heels.
  • "The Interpreter" was bad with a stupid ending. It was popular because Huang Xuan was in it. I hope "The Negotiator" will have a better plot because its predecessor was a torture to watch but I had to watch it as my dad complained I did not spend time with him anymore.
  • Th series had potential but got spoilt by a messy storyline. Wish they focused on the serious issues and stop wasting time on funny moments. Wish the storyline ended with more people dying because it was too happy. Only one guy got shot, a few people got whipped. And then everyone acts like it is a big party and that overnight, Lau Kong because a different person because he said sorry. Should have been Lau Kong getting maimed or killed trying to protect Louisa's daughter as he really mistreated her poorly in the story and he really owed her a big apology. In the end, he was still, rich, respected and had his sons with him. If he was truly apologetic to Katy, then he should have given her their son and allowed her to leave. I think there should have been a scene which him allowing his concubines to divorce him and him showing true regret and remorse for his belittlement and abuse of the women around him. The jumping to 2 years later ending is very rushed and crappy. All the widows who got forced to be buried alive should have been acknowledged. The ending totally forgot about Jeannie and her sacrifice. I still prefer the tragic ending of "Dance of Passion" and "The Silver Chamber of Sorrows" where the oppresive men get punished.
