• @funnlim pretty much what you said! I think some higher up couldn’t sleep with her so now they are out for blood >_> literally a scandal at the release of her new movie. And yes, netizens just blindingly blaming her for that actor’s lack of professionalism and citing “emotional abuse”. Poor girl, because she’s so pretty and is actually a good actress. But because of this scandal, her career is forever ruined (because it’s kdrama and they are toxic!)
  • @funnlim So true. I don't want to use the word misogyny here since this word has been so misused lately. But, this case really sound close. Blame the woman when the decision is all up the man himself. It's like those historians who blamed the downfall of a kingdom on the 'evil' concubine. The king was the one who chose to be irresponsible, and his woman got blame.
  • @funnlim They just love having HK stars over there cause they know they hot :P
  • Joey I agree since I've seen that potential since long time ago. The rest I don't know who they are or maybe I don't recognise their names. Frankly I do find them uninteresting. I haven't watched a TVB series proper for long long time.
  • The first I heard she is in hot demand in China. Maybe China is desperate for whatever stars.
  • I have been following this news and I am confused why she is being vilified and essentially punished for what appears to be a huge invasion of privacy (someone hacked into her phone? His phone? Revealed private conversation)? and started to question her integrity as a person when there is no crime committed. No man ever present himself as being abused by her, what we have is one actor who was so unprofessional he dropped off the series some years back. Suddenly all blame shifted onto her when the man becomes almost blameless, and he doesn't have a backbone and she is puppetering him. I find k entertainment sickening in the way they succumb to mob rules, keyboard warriors and everyone is pushed aside at the mere hint of... what's the scandal here? What they do in private is their business. This is not a case where she took nude photos of him and boasted to her friends, sleeps around and boasted about her abilities or such stuff. If she is a controlling girlfriend, so what? He's not complaining. He likes it that way. Not like she whipped him or whatever. K entertainment is hopelessly hypocritical. She should be lynched in public for something more substantial, not on these mere suggestions.
  • @funnlim You are right about Zhao Liying. They should have up ZLY's character age to match her appearance. She looks young for her age, but, really not convincing as a 16 years old. It feels weird when Wang Yibo's character keep calling her 'little lady' and 'little beauty' when their appearance did not reflect their age difference. Costume for me is ok. I actually like how simple everyone's costume and hairpiece is. It should be this way for people running around jianghu.
  • @kidd Honestly, I stopped after 5 episodes. I couldnt stand the outdated costume and especially the super pale colour tone. In the end I didn't think there was chemistry between the 2, story for me is confusing and frankly, whilst I like Zhao Liying, I find her too old for the role. So i dropped it. I wasnt impressed at all. The dubbing was also terrible.
  • @funnlim I'm curious. What do you think of 'Legend of Fei'? I remember you are looking forward to it. I'm watching it now and I find it boring. It's so slow. I'm already up to episode 19 now and I feel that the plot is going nowhere. Ah Fei is just wandering around Jianghu meeting elders who help her level up her martial arts, while Xie Yun just tagged along. Chu Chu, after so many episodes, has yet to reach 48 Stockade. And the villains are still looking for that obscure something. The most interesting parts are actually the backstories of the elders that Ah Fe met. Too bad 2 of them already died after passing their martial arts to Ah Fei.
  • Im watching this now. I have many issues with the convulated story, the sets, the landing of some actors, the slow mo used, the secondary actors who were terrible and the rawness of the 2 main actors. But between the 2, I think Gong Jun was the better actor. He does remind me of Xiao Zhan, similar aged too. I am disappointed with the costumes which I feel is not thematic and not consistent. But I'm comparing it with the untamed. Overall story, this series is richer and wider. But characterisation wise, The Untamed was far more complex. There's a reason why I bought the commemorative book. Costumes themselves with the weapons all are part of the story. I feel Word Of Honour is passable. Gong Jun is of course the best aspect.
  • @funnlim OMG! Totally agree. The blue jacket, beret, short pants and white socks was terrible (the photo above does not show his full ensemble). I was joking to my sister and friends that Yibo likes to wear women's jackets. Apparently it's true. LOL. They do fit him well though because he's so skinny.
  • @funnlim The people who come forward are overwhelming and some armed with solid evidence in the form of recordings. Beside in 2018 JiSoo's ex came out with accusations of assaults but quickly suppressed. JiSoo got no chances.
  • @funnlim It should be obvious, HK is the better place to be, duh! :P Props for her in wanting to stay there. @applelim Same, I didn't know that either. He's an alright actor though. But glad he's putting family first.
  • @funnlim All his former classmates came out to attest to the bullying, whats the point of denying.
  • His wife is from china. She could have moved to china with him for his career. I dont get why stay in hk when he had a career in china. And he doesnt have stern look. He has a serious face, yes but that's not stern. Anyway he is getting too thin. That's the hk effect.
  • I dont agree with these baseless accusations and trial by media. That being said, he admitted to bullying but not the sexual assault. His accusers were very specific so that lends some credibility to the accusations. What I cant understand is are korean lawyers and legal system all dead? Why admit to anything when basically his career is over? No one ever thought of fighting the accusations because these are defamatory in nature. Why admit? Makes no sense.
  • I doubt that's his personal style. I never liked his chanel female jackets look. He looked fine in proper suits of jackets but I always hated his chanel looks. The latest blue jackets and hat was to me the worst. When he went inside the hall he changed and that was way way way better.
  • I was gonna watch this after Uncanny Counter. But watched Partners for Justice instead. But thought to give it a try since I watched all the Armed Reaction series and then for some reason I am now watching Narcos. Frankly Narcos is just.. wow. So I think pushing this back until I'm done. But don't feel like watching...
  • @funnlim I was just about to say the same thing.....TVB has been going downhill for many years well before pandemic... Think they were just producing the same old format and very little creativity....shame as they were once the golden TV production company.....hope things changes but it will take a massive uturn before anything changes
  • @funnlim It was only partly comedic because of bobby making it so along with Joyce and her mom that made it good drama and funny. It's great that Joyce is in this though although I hope she has good screen in time this. Have to agree making it a full comedy not sure how I feel about that. Hope this is good.
