• She stopped improving a long long time ago. She still has hope, i mean motherhood may give her new perspective but it seems she's not interested in acting anymore.
  • Just finished 2 episodes, it has all the typical kdrama rom com elements but yet I really enjoyed it. The acting are good generally and the story, it is still a love story but as per usual, plenty of other elements. So far it is enjoyable and the opening scene is vibrant, a little cool and rather energetic. But it is not idol drama. Kdrama doesn't do idol dramas. they have idols, but they are more into themes, this being rom com set amidst start up businesses, a twisted cinderella story I suppose, 2 feuding sisters and 1 very irresponsible mother. Oh, and a super cool grandma. The running theme to any kdrama is how to recognise the lead; the one who deep down is always kind, even if he or she doesn't admit it.
  • @funnlim I agree. From time immemorial, women have always been seeking security and resources. Even if they can find it themselves, they STILL look for someone richer and wealthier than them. It's a big reason why wealthy women have a hard time dating and why they resent their partners if they make less than them or the men don't provide. Of course, this is a generalization, and exceptions are rampant, but it's natural for women to want to seek out affluent men. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing, but there are those who are indiscriminate with their selections of men with money (Michelle Reis, Isabella Leung, Richard Li's current GF and lots more) who are distasteful. It feels like they attach to anyone who has money, and not because they genuinely like the other person.
  • @funnlim Yes people do and looking for wealthy men shows she is incapable so has to take from others to sustain her luxurious lifestyle which is a bit sad.
  • @funnlim Ohhhh I agree with you about grace. Definitely better for the role. Sam is not bad but grace can do better. Sometimes watching her do the agent scenes is a bit cringe.
  • Yeap Joel Chen vibe. But he is in love. Anyway he's a very good actor and in demand so not worried.
  • @funnlim Ahh I made a mistake. She referred to Golden Faith which to me was her breakthrough. I thought she was referring to that god awful series.
  • A bit tempted to watch Love And Redemption until I read leading man coughs up blood every episode, the love story is torture and the torture is thanks to his own sect. Why is costume drama love story so abusive emotionally? So I just continued with Ming Dynasty which I enjoyed despite the frustrating flaws, Hanzawa Naoki 2 and Stranger 2. And I just realised at the same time I was watching 1 Kdrama, 1 Cdrama and 1 Jdrama. Very international.
  • Don't dismiss her claims just because she cried hard and many feels she is acting OTT with her reaction. No one can measure a person's tolerance towards bullying by a reasonable man's test. If what she said is true, she needs help. If what she says is false, then she should be discarded and pushed aside for playing the victim. Since she claims she received abusive text, easiest is to show the world a copy of those text.
  • She was great in her earlier works but that harem series was god awful and I hate she doesn't realise that is not a good example. She stopped improving before that, like Linda who both reached a plateau and from interviews I suspect they just too high up to see where went wrong. If they continue to quote awful performances as good ones, they will never improve or have another breakthrough. I had high hopes for Myolie but Myolie crashed when she became famous and promoted to leading lady. That was when everything unravel and yet she did stage shows, she was eager to learn until she went numb I suspect and decided to marry and lost interest in acting. I still think she can be that actress who gave us some amazing performances if she's willing to step into supporting roles. And stop using awards by TVB as a measure of how good she is because harem series was absolute rubbish.
  • They are getting married, they are in love. Past is past. Let the label go. Boyfriend stealer or not, he wasn't married when he started with her. Maybe the start was not good, wasn't clean nor proper but he wasn't married, she wasn't married so they are free to explore. And they are getting married so that means they truly want to be with one another. So let them be.
  • Do people call men shallow for dating pretty girls? Anyway maybe she has standard. She does have a lifestyle to support so she only dates men that fulfils those standards. Gold digger or not, girl wants, guy willing, most favourable exchange.
  • Can she speak cantonese? And can she speak fluent cantonese? If not can she act well? She can play a mute but I don't think I can suffer thru another pretty face who can't speak well and can't act well. If only TVB is making wuxia or historical drama with some foreign mongolian princess as a character, she can play that. But TVB isn't doing that so she probably plays foreign exchange student or something. Of course you learn on the job but my patience as a viewer is wearing thin. Unless she is super chirpy and has great charisma, please TVB, please spare me the pain. Scrap Miss HK pageant and just do a talent search.
  • @mike Yes he was, spraying saliva on the actresses since he's always in emotional drama but you can say he is not overacting, he is rather a very dramatic actor. Overacting implies he is a bad actor and Alex Man is never a bad actor, he just approaches his role differently.
  • @pompidur Ray Lui is an exception. He's an immortal. I suspect he sold his soul to the devil, if not how he can still look ageless.
  • Alex Man? THE Alex Man?! Wow! There was a time he looked terrible now he looked much better. I don't get the negative tone of the article about his previous performances. Anyone who knows TV dramas KNOWS he was legendary in his performances. Yes he was OTT and that Dodo Cheng has got her face sprayed by his saliva but how many actors these days could be so charismatic and inhibit the role the way he did? All his previous works were classic, from elsewhere to TVB and he inspired generations. So that line about after taste is poorly made. If his past performances has after taste, the new generation actors all stinks. If Alex Man returns to TVB for just 1 series, I will put the air date in my calendar and watch, even if Sisley Choi is in it.
  • I was quite enjoying Cdrama without her. I find her overrated. She probably works best as talent manager.
  • I havent seen a TVB series for quite some time so I am not in the position to comment about Samantha's performance but the idea of her just doesn't appeal to me. As I read the synopsis I kept thinking why not Grace Wong? She has the body, the looks, the skills to play this character which she played before except that was a serious drama. I mean if I have to choose 1 woman in TVB to be a superhero, its gotta be Grace Wong. She gives me the Black Widow vibe. I feel its such a wasted opportunity but maybe she was considered or she couldn't do this series. Samantha Ko doesnt give me the feeling of lightness on her feet to be someone highly skilled or nimble. And Kenneth is practically the supporting here which is fine. He works best as supporting at times. But since its a comedy why not cast a comedy actor who doesn't look painful acting cute? I can almost imagine Kenneth's expression in here. TVB has been making uninspired casting decision or storyline that just none of them memorable. And No producer will criticise their leading lady unless they want to quit TVB. No one is that ungracious.
  • Its fans fight, not agency fight. The casting rumours from day one had yibo and Victoria then huangxuan but then rumours had it he cant make the schedule so someone else was considered and now back to huangxuan who maybe could make it. Nothing to do with yibo and I havent heard of any grumblings by mtjj but since china fans are insane, this could be china mtjj or huangxuan group. I want huangxuan. From the book summary yibo is the lead but Huang xuan had significant heavy role so it doesnt matter. So for me this article is gossip and nothing more.i have a feeling casting is set. Apparently in china no one talks about pre production stage. By the way huangxuan is a very good actor and he gets along well with yibo and I look forward to this collaboration.
  • Going to cinema to watch today. I wanna see if liu yifei really did improve in her acting. I am however not keen on the westernized pronunciation of mulan. Its Chinese, say it like its chinese. And Disney of course is promoting it as a feminist sort of story when it was about filial piety. Hopefully it's better than the awful boring beauty and the beast and god awful lion king.
