• @iciel jesus the writing sounds horrible and lame. The worst in recent record of bad writings.
  • @cutie777 It was a nickname that fans and colleague affectionately called him by. I don't know where it really originated from. Some sources said Joey Wong, some said Carina Lau.
  • Oh man I thought it was just the angle on the first pic but the following pics look just like him too. I miss gor gor :'(
  • @iciel Agreed, though I don’t think any of us should be surprised, as this isn’t the first time TVB has appeared to “normalize” rape in a series and it probably won’t be the last. I don’t watch much TVB anymore nowadays, but I did catch most of this series and to say that it’s a disappointment is an understatement...the emotional piece is severely lacking, which is a shame considering there are a lot of really good actors/actresses in the series...everyone’s reactions are off-kilter and the story is all over the place. Basically, the poorly written script is a huge problem, which unfortunately even a relatively good cast isn’t able to salvage. And yes, the series is super draggy and boring with the side stories of the younger generation that really should be cut because they have nothing to do with the main story line. This series proves once again that TVB is incapable of handling controversial / taboo subject matter in their series.
  • @iciel Exactly how I felt! Alice’s character wasn’t at all angry at Max’s character. And Max’s wife! No disgust that she found out her husband raped someone when he was 17! No one’s reaction was as I expected and seemed to brush off the gravity of the character’s actions.
  • @iciel I agree TVB is incapable of properly grasping the emotions/reactions of characters. The way they chose to reveal the truth is ridiculously calm. Is that even normal? Who are the scriptwriters these days? Terrible! They lack real life experience to write a decent story.
  • I started watching this because I was interested in how TVB would show when it comes to the women and men's point of view regarding rape. I was highly disappointed Alice completely forgave Max after she found out the truth and she was only angry at his father... I mean, the fact that she was raped and all the hard life she had to endure was still there. Just because she used to love Max that it makes his crime any less disturbing? When she saw Ben again and still thought he was the culprit, her reaction was very different, very angry and irrational. And what about Max's wife and son? Even if they came from Australia I doubt they're that forgiving. After it was found out that Max was the culprit, his wife asked him if he wants to get a divorce so he and Alice can get married --- like not at all angry or disgusted that her husband raped someone. Same with his son, I would have loved to see some sort of struggles to sort out their feelings, but nothing, just 100% supportive. Even the villagers' reactions to Max's father lying were stronger than when they see Max. I can't wrap my head around this series. They have the potential to explore such interesting and taboo theme yet played it safe again. I don't know what I expected. But I'll be dropping the series. It became extremely boring now with the whole head villager election & the ping pong team.
  • I just re-watched On Call 36 Hours so I'm a little bummed out to see Kenneth looking so haggard in this series lol still handsome but he has shown his age. It has a very different vibe to On Call; darker, more politics and also doesn't have the typical TVB hospital scenes. The hospital in this series looks more realistic, grim and cold.
  • @iciel that’s lame. If you don’t have a legit movie at Cannes, you shouldn’t be able to walk the red carpet.
  • @powerhousequeen yes there are people who are invited and there are people who buy tickets to attend. A lot of third rate Chinese stars have been attending Cannes.
  • @iciel yes ur right. As a vietnamese, i literally feel embarrased :(
  • I'm not surprised. This girl is very well known in Vietnam for being a gold digger; she used to date a 70-year-old man. But she got her 15 minutes fame, since quite a few English media outlet mentioned the fact that she got fined; that's probably what she wanted.
  • I think she's beautiful. The only flaw she has is that she's a bit crossed eyes so during some scenes her face looks strange. Because of that in the past I've thought she had a bad plastic surgery job that causes her face to be unbalanced; but after seeing her young pics, it looks like she's quite natural. Samantha can definitely act. If people can get past her appearance, they'll see that she excels in crying scenes. Her eyes can well up with tears very quickly. She reminds me of Elaine; they have big teary eyes.
  • @iciel The articles out today are saying that TVB cut Jacqueline’s CHL song because netizens complained and threatened to boycott the show. TVB could very well have been already intending to do it but netizens got to it first? Either way, Jacqueline is definitely done for...
  • @iciel Some clever editing will save FH4 or refilm those scenes. Or just release it. I won;t avoid FH4 because of her.
  • @funnlim I agreed. Jacqueline's career is definitely over. She's too much of a nobody to bounce back from something like this. Funny thing I noticed when watching Come Home Love today, even the theme song that was sung by her was removed and replaced with a piano melody. Even though TVB said that they're giving Jacqueline sometimes to rest, TVB is not known for being so nice. I think they're scraping everything that she was in to do some damage control. Forensic Heros 4 is definitely a goner, which is such a shame because it's Selena Li's last series with TVB
  • Kenneth's answers to the reporters were very calm and classy, but the forced laughter breaks my heart. Hang in there Kenneth!
  • Sisley's facial expression has improved a lot since her "Young Charioteers" days (still cringing when I remember it). And she can definitely control her tone and volume better. However, if she can only find a way to control the way her mouth moves. Like Vivien Yeo, they both have slightly protruded teeth and a big mouth so it's quite distracting to see them move so exaggeratedly. Though I gotta admit that Sisley looks very beautiful in this series, the hair and make-up really suit her.
  • @iciel hahaha, I had the same experience. However in our case, it was me bathing with my cousins (I’m a lone child and my cousin was a brother and a sister). I was the oldest, then my cousin who is 1 Year younger, and his sister who is 2 yrs younger than him. We would always have fun and up to absolutely no good thing whenever we were put in my maternal grandmother’s house (they always ignored us). So after a fun bathing session, my grandmother pulled me aside and said I need to stop bathing with them as my cousin asked her why my body is a bit weird (I just started puberty) - at least that’s what my grandmother told me, whether he did ask it or not, idk. And that made me feel ashamed, and drove a wedge in between me and my cousins. We are still good in speaking term, and remembered and talked about our fun childhood (with the girl cousin, I barely talked to the boy cousin lol), but my cousin’s question, though valid, her concern and way of dealing with it, kill the innocence of my childhood. I started to feel like I can’t be carefree when I was still less than 10 (I don’t remember how old I was exactly). Anyway, I totally get you :)
