• I'm currently in the states. Everyday I stare out my window at all the ppl ignoring safer at home laws by walking around in groups without wearing masks. When I check the news, I feel desensitized to number of ppl that have died in the U.S., and fear for myself after I graduate into a non existent job market Hell, I wanna move to Taiwan too!
  • I also called out Trump's racism on my social media and had Asian and Asian American friends question how Trump was wrong. Look, he's the President of the United States. He's not the old man that works at the gas station down the street that you can ignore. As the leader of the nation, ppl look towards his words to base their actions and assertions. In this case, he's affirming racist and violent actions against anyone who looks like they might be Chinese, which is basically anyone who looks East Asian. Four years ago, Trump built his political platform on racist nativist and nationalist rhetoric, which he's invoking again. It seems like he's willing to sacrifice all the ppl of Asian descent in America for re-election. Get ready yaw. Cause even if we weren't that scared before, we better be scared and vigilant now.
  • I just finished watching this show and it is as amazing as other people say it is!
  • lol not sure how she's relevant either. She's basically Mrs. Jay Chou to me, but I'm uninformed. This type of people pleasing personality + a cute face is pretty much universally liked by most straight men lol. I am going out of my way to assume that this is just the type of young lady that Jay Chou also likes (clearly they are together and have children lol). With exception to his musical talent, Jay Chou seems like a pretty basic straight Asian dude. I had a lot of trouble understanding the last paragraph. Perhaps, some context is missing. But I see her point about the importance of being careful about mental health.
  • Maybe in their friends circle (rich ppl) it's normal to receive money from parents. I don't think the point is her not taking an allowance from her parents per se, but that she is a go-getter and can depend on herself to some extent. I belong in the same camp as those who have been working as soon as we mastered hand-eye coordination lol but I don't share or understand the hostility being directed towards AB. Perhaps, what we're all really saying is: "good for AB, but i'm better than/worked harder than AB." Okay, good for you. Tbh, how I'd love to have lived a life where I didn't have to work for everything!! Which, it seems, is what AB's life could've been. I'm jealous!
  • I'm just watching on it's official YouTube channel. As I am not invested in the show, the Google translations are just enough for a seasoned MTLer and drama watcher to understand the gist lol.
  • @iampheng Which platform are you watching from? I can’t find this drama.
  • ...so in which way was her acting criticized? Like what specifically went wrong? I am watching the show and she def does not feel like the average ancient lady, but her character isn't really supposed to be one. Her voice is interesting.
  • In fact, I feel like all of these guys are unquestionably more attractive compared to the average dude walking on the street. Even if they're not traditionally masculine, but they're also obviously not womenly looking (only Luhan in Fighter of Destiny gave me a pause lol). I don't think being more effeminate makes one less "handsome"...it's just a different kind of attractive. I'm looking at this through queer eyes, so I have a slightly different approach towards usage of words like "pretty" or "handsome" and a "real man" can mean or be applied to a person. I also agree with other posters that stated such a list is affected by current popularity. After all with popularity, there is also greater visibility. XZ is my favorite on the list lolol.
  • @iampheng such a sly way to blame the victim from an apologist for the thugs!
  • Well, this article is very interesting as it does not (maybe could not) explicitly identify the attacker's political affiliations. The foreign reporter did the correct thing by remaining non partisan lol. I hope this incident will be a cautionary tale for other unwitting "heroes"!
  • Good lawd! If she don't like him then she don't like him. If she likes him then she likes him. Cause isn't she in her mid to late 30s? She has always and can continue to do what she wants! Frankly, Roy's confession of his affections are his "personal problems" and Janine doesn't have to be burdened with or feel obligated to respond to him or anyone else. LEAVE MY GODDESS ALONE!
  • ... so did she go outside to confront the protestors or was she just outside, minding her own business and happened to see them breaking into an atm... and then confronted them? Well, the lady has guts! I am of the mind that the people can protest as long as they're not losing sight of the larger goals. I personally don't care about the destruction of public property because properties aren't more important than the ppl. However, if this was an attempt to loot an ATM, that's highly suspect! I hope the actress is getting the medical attention she needs!
  • haha i agree with those that said the dude should look young, and not actually be young. She herself looks young for her age, so she can find another 40 year old who looks as young as she does. She lives in Asia, it shouldn't be that hard.
  • I'm single with no children and most of the people who tell me never to get married or have children are women who are married with children haha. I have been told that once you start your own family, as the female partner, your life is no longer your own. Since I have no first hand experience and no desire to get married anyway, I just listen quietly. That being said, I am an educator and work closely with low income urban youth, and can tell others that you can love the children of others very much. I can't make comparisons to my own children, as I don't have any, but I feel my life so far has been enriched by the young ppl I work with. I realize that not everyone will/can/should feel the same way as me. Perhaps, Barbie was also expressing a sentiment that she holds dear but could not meet because of family pressure. I think in this case, it's better to think positively on behalf of adopting children who aren't so fortunate than to guess what a stranger is really thinking.
  • Well, well, well isn't this absolutely annoying and petty. Although I understand where the mainland netizens are coming from, they clearly have no desire to see artists express their political opinions. Aren't we all human? This type of censorship is unreasonable, but unsurprisingly very mainland haha. Isn't this similar to what HK was protesting in the first place (be honest, no BS, plz)? We can all still have different opinions and enjoy the capitalist money making machine of the entertainment industry. Naturally, Charmaine should have exercised better judgment here considering her profession and the political climate. But the bullying behavior of the netizens is embarrassing.
  • Joe doesn't like kids... I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND HER! MAKE THAT MONEY JOE! For those who are interested, see article in The Atlantic about late childbirth: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/07/how-long-can-you-wait-to-have-a-baby/309374/ tl;dr version: women can have children later in life, especially rich healthy women. lol.
  • The response of public is so weird...
  • I love this couple so much! That baby is so fat and adorable!!
