• @gingermessiah Sammi already has history of depression, while JW’s actions might be the cause of her returning to depression, but if it wasn’t JW, it could be another woman or another factor. While I’m not trying to say who is worse at being pushed to depression and suicidal thought, any factor could make a prone to depress person deteriorate to suicidal tendency, but what happen to JW is peer pressure, public pressure, public bullying that is a lot more severe and easier to cause a normal person to have suicidal tendencies. Action of one (what JW did to Sammi) vs action of a collective group (what the public did to JW). Human is a societal creature, we don’t do well in isolation, even animal.
  • @jessehsuan Well what if Sammi Cheng had suicidal thoughts because of her actions? People will always judge and if something bad happens to Sammi Cheng I am sure you won’t be having the same sympathy for her.
  • @gingermessiah And she is right now, taking an official leave to study. Yeah, she didn't seem to take care of the whole situation, but what's done is done. She's already apologized and the only thing she can do now is to leave and prevent/dampen the paparazzi of attacking her and the rest of the people involved.
  • @tatsumakijim Celebrities are considered role models. It’s part of the game where you want fame and riches, you need to accept the responsibility and consequence of failing it.
  • @gingermessiah In western countries AND Asian countries there are lot of cheating and drinking one night stands. Maybe because there are a lot more traditional people in Asia so they think it doesn’t happen often. However, a celebrity trying systematically befriend the celebrity wife of a celebrity before getting in a secret relationship with the guy is rare in any culture. It might happen in western television dramas but in reality it does not happen much at all.
  • @shorty Just because she was born in Canada (actually USA) it can be considered a norm? I am sorry even in Western societies these kind of acts are frowned upon. Chinese and Asian tradition values are high but Western tradition values are not obselete. In any societies messing with people’s marriages is a no no. This is one of those arguments used time and time again claiming Asians are making a molehill out of things. There are just as much consequences that affects your public image in Hollywood. Otherwise celebrities don’t churn out amicable separation and we are still very good friends in their PR message to the public.
  • @kolo Errr... 1 million = 1,000,000 100 million = 100,000,000 1 billion = 1,000,000,000 1.4 billion = 1,400,000,000 So 100 million is equivalent to 1/14 of China's population. In the modern era 1 billion is no longer 1 million x 1 million, which would be an astronomical figure. If China really had that large a population it would have collapsed by now.
  • @riceball120 I think it might be the other way round. This guy is staying in the limelight chasing models, celebrities and scandalous relationships. If he simply chased a gold digger with no relations to the showbiz industry, Edison would have less attention. This guy is pretty much crying for attention and trolling like what others have been saying. He can't be the cool cute guy portrayal, so has to resort to using bad publicity to keep his face out there.
  • @llwy12 His movies are indeed shoddy, but he had left his mark on the HK film industry. Whether you hate or like him, he has provided significant contribution to the industry. We got to remember HK is a very small city with a declining cinema audience because they much prefer to watch pirate version online. Who would want to invest in HK when the people refuse to spend anything? He's not really bashing the market. There is simply no market. Name another person who has contributed as much as a writer/director/producer as Wong Jing in the past 20-30 years. You will realise this man can be an asshole but you haven't got anyone to replace him or do more for HK.
  • @kidd I think people are trying to create a buzz for the movie. I believe roads were closed and authorities have been notified. They even had the fire brigade on stand by in the event something went wrong. If pedestrians were to see an explosion, they must be a long way away. I don't see many British people complaining about it here.
  • @c3stlavi3 Alice Chan lacked screen time as it was taken up by mainly the three male leads in Lord of Shanghai. I would have liked her to win Best Actress. I still have no clue why people seem to like Kristal Tin. Nancy Wu won it mainly because of her other competitors are not up to scratch or lack screen time like I mention. Overall Nancy won it because of the amount of influence she has in the drama and carried it as being the centre piece to the whole premise behind the series. The ghost who manipulated things. Just like Anthony Wong who ran the show as he is the pivotal character in every way possible. Just like why Dayo Wong, Wayne Lai, Roger Kwok, Kevin Cheng won it in recent years as Best Actor.
  • @unknown Ruco Chan is already getting recognition by playing lead roles but if I remember correctly, he played Wayne Lai's son in State of Divinity. Wayne was a secondary character who appeared in 3-4 episodes at most before being killed off. All of these actors have come a long way and whether they succeed or not depends on the opportunity, their ability, luck and whether the audience accepts them. Audience is arguably the biggest stumbling block even if the producers give you a shot. Mak Ka Lun - He was never a stand out character and recently seem to undergo cosmetic surgery on his return to TVB. He is currently being given a chance as a doctor in "Angel In The Making". Dickson Lee - If you watch old films not series you will notice him starring as younger leads but failing to make a break in the film industry. He was given some second lead role in the 1990s. Eric Li - I believe he was given a lot of good support roles in recent years but suddenly vanished again. David Do - When he first started he was given a Crown Prince role and there's a strong emphasis to promote him and he was competing with his foolish half brother Ngo Ka Lin. Jimmy Au - Back in the 90s he was given second male leads in Wuxia/Ancient Period dramas. Everyone have been given opportunities whether they rise and shine. It all depends on us the audience.
  • I remember him from watching 80s and 90s TVB series. He's recognisable and there are plenty of actors and actresses who play small roles that still leaves an impression. Perhaps not as strong and defining as you would like but you tend to miss them once they are gone.
  • @isay You do have a point, but then at the end of the day we can't really decide on who is the best actor/actress. Even if we use the rating/viewer-ship of the drama to determine the best drama and best actor/actress, people will still not be happy. That's why I prefer to leave it to the "experts". :D I believe the panel are mostly the producers, directors and senior actors/actresses. Think there was an article about that a few years ago but it may have changed since.
  • @janet72 More like a popularity contest than an acting contest. This is why there are judges having a stronger influence on the outcome after judging by their performances not because they like them.
  • @yummysukiyaki Sorry. Anthony Wong, Kent Tong, Wayne Lai and Kenneth Ma did pretty good in their roles in Lord of Shanghai. Ruco Chan made it more worthwhile in Captain of Destiny, he carried the drama but to act better than those four. No way.
  • He has been playing second fiddle throughout the years. Unfortunately, he never got given or/and established himself in a strong role. The turning evil thing he saw it coming when as a lawyer he believes power supercede law/justice in Lord of Shanghai. Ron got shafted in that last role but there is a lot of similarities in his other roles when he used evil means to get justice even when playing good guys. He could never be likeable.
  • @kaykay408 At the end of the day they are a duo act. In defense of Charlene, anybody can feel sorry for themselves. It's not like she's rubbing it in Gillian's face. Just because someone has a harsher life than yours, you cannot complain about your own? I don't think any of us should complain in life then as there will always be that one person in the world who is worst off than the rest of us. Back when the Twins was in their prime Gillian was the lead role and loved by most of the fans. They portrayed her as the angel and perfect girl of every boys' dreams. Charlene was given the short end of the stick and had to be the side act. All you have to do is go back to the period before the Edison scandal, and you will notice how much work Charlene has put in just promoting herself in the film industry. Just so she can show her truth worth without being overshadowed. In addition, why people ridiculed Gillian? I believe it was months before Edison's scandal, paparazzi or someone took photos of her changing and she cried her eyes out like, "Oh my God! How could people do such horrible indecent things." It made people sympathise for her because of her pure innocent angelic facade. Yet when Edison's pictures of hers leaked out. She failed to shed one tear and the image she portrayed of herself was destroyed. This is why people have less sympathy for her because of her charade.
  • @hannah Charlene Choi was dating William Chan right after announcing her divorce with Ronald Cheng. A younger and better looking partner. Let's be fair here. Ronald dated and immediately married her wife soon after and just wants to settle down. If he really is a playboy, he wouldn't have settled down straight away and continued to play around. Let's not just play the victim card here with Charlene. She kept her marriage a secret and got with a better guy all the people was saying what a better match a few years ago. As soon as they break up, the guys are to blame once again...
  • Sadly Kenneth Ma and Alice Chan will not win the Best Actor and Actress awards I think they deserve for their roles.
