• @iciel Noticed how Kenneth made the statement that they mutually agreed not to announce it until they were photographed cuz they don't want to seem like they are creating news? I've seen in 4 different interviews how Kenneth stated this ... his words are exactly the same. As if he was reciting a sentence. In most cases, altho you are recounting the same content, your words are different each time you recount it, no one says the exact same words each time. It sounds rehearsed.
  • @jjwong Based on the interview with Kenneth it sounds like they didn't want to hide but also didn't want to just announce it like some PR stunt, so they agreed that if they are photographed together then they will announce their relationship. It sounds real to me. I know many regular people who also don't like to announce their relationship on purpose, but will admit if asked.
  • @iciel So you choose to believe in these conspiracy theories... even the mother of one of the girls who committed suicide said not to use her daughters death for political agenda, disgusting respect the dead. And are you joking, this is not a movie, you really think the police are going to go and kill random people of no importance?? Would require massive coverup, makes no sense, the rioters started everything first. HK people are crazy, the life they want to live is that murders can escape to HK roam free, i can smash buildings, hit people, kill people and that doesn't matter we don't need policemen blah blah. Bunch of idiots who are racist.
  • @pocky I never say that the US is better. US cops are just as bad. If your skin is anything other than white you should be very afraid of cops in the US.
  • @teaalltheway I do see those videos and I do condemn protesters that take violence to that level. But, I see more videos of HK police beating up completely defenseless citizens, even CHILDREN. You do not hear of lost lives in HK because guess what? They cover it up. There has been missing people and people turning up dead that were ruled as "suicide" all over the country. If you choose to turn a blind eye then there is nothing else we can say.
  • @iciel "The HK police have been freely beating up citizens " - Please Google US cops & shooting deaths of unarmed citizens. Has been going on for decades. Just got a few new incidents these past few weeks. I might be wrong, but have not heard of an actual shooting death of a HK citizen by HK cops, yet.
  • @iciel Well have you not seen the protestors beating up innocent people, man burnt alive, man dead because a protestor thrown a brick. The police are literally doing their job, to control the protest and protect normal citizens. In any western countries, they use the same measures, in US you would probably get shot dead if you slit a policemans neck, in France yellow vest protest batons, tear gas ect. were used. Being able to protest is democracy! The fact that no one got killed by policemen, but innocent citizens lives have been taken away by the protestors speaks volume.
  • @iciel According to Cato Institute's 2019 HUMAN FREEDOM INDEX, the USA was ranked 15th, Hong Kong was ranked 3rd (once again) with the MOST FREEDOM in the world. This is the latest and was conducted WITH THE HK RIOTS included in this report. Facts don't lie. https://www.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/human-freedom-index-files/cato-human-freedom-index-update-3.pdf
  • @anon Have you not seen videos of police violence in Hong Kong? How could you still think that Hong Kong is free? That index is from 2018, they were free then, but not anymore since last year. The violence has escalated. The HK police have been freely beating up citizens and arresting pro-democracy legislators. They are now pushing for a bill to make it illegal to boo the Chinese anthem.
  • They focus too much on the relationships of the characters in each cases instead of using that time to elaborate the relationships between the main cast. I remember feeling really odd when watching Michelle Yim and Patrick Tse's scenes... like all those flashbacks and diaologues don't add much to the story, yet it took like 1/3 of the episodes. Maybe because they are famous guest stars so they need to give them screen time. But I'd rather have the main cast more fleshed out. Look at FH1, they used mostly kelefe for the case characters, so they can focus on the "how" instead of the "why". Also, each of a the cast has their own story line (Bobby and his wife case, Yoyo and how she deals with the subordinates, Florence and the infidelity of her husband, Frankie and Linda). I wonder if the cutting of Jacqueline's scenes contributed to that, but the last scene between Ko-On and Tsui Yee was weird... the last time they saw each other was as friends, how did they jump to lovers so quick. Ko-On was so so in love with Monique, it just doesn't make any sense. I really miss the old screenwriters at TVB, these new series just don't have any substance.
  • @iciel Ahh, thanks for your input! I did some quick research after reading your post, and indeed, it appears that the romance genre of manga is typically divided into two sub-categories. The "shoujo" genre is more light-hearted and youthful, often portraying clichéd heterosexual romance, whereas the "yaoi" genre is darker, more multifaceted. I'm not keen on mainstream romance novels myself, for the same reasons you've stated, so it makes sense to me why some manga fans would opt for the latter. Learned something new today. :P I do love a good read, so I'll have to check out your suggestion some time.
  • @oystergirl I can't speak for everyone, but personally I enjoy yaoi better than regular shoujo primarily due to the types of story. Yaoi is more mature and deals with stigma and pressure from society. Shoujo usually deals with really cliche love stories that you can see everywhere. Female protagonists are also usually portrayed as weaker and more dramatic. If you are interested, start with the yaoi manhua "Here U Are". Strong and charismatic characters and beautiful art.
  • I'm not surprised. This was such a stupid show. But the blame can't be completely on Jacqueline. I'm sure some viewers are turned off by her scandal, but the plot was so mediocre. There was no real plot, no chemistry between any pairs, no real climax and a really quick and rushed happy ending. Bad actions are forgiven so quickly and without consequences. I know that TVB dramas are dropping in quality but this is a new low. I'm glad they are re-broadcasting the old dramas from the 80s and 90s. I can just start watching those to pass the time.
  • @sherla1019 Did you watch this series? In the series he was rich so I think that's why girls flock to him. Also, it was later found out that the after the girls sleep with him they immediately marry rich; so that's why the girls use him. I personally think 6wing acts better than a lot of TVB siu sangs nowaday. He doesn't have the look but he's very charming. He was great in Two Steps From Heaven.
  • I'm liking the fact that the each case is not predictable. I was so afraid that everyone will have a typical TVB happy ending but that does not apply to all cases. Honestly, I love Joel but he hasn't impressed me yet. If anything, I feel like he over-act on some scenes. Selena on the other hand was very natural and continue to showcase her acting abilities.
  • @iciel Lol, I agree that TVB oftentimes is not scary but with Barrack O’Karma I think writers have done a decent job thus far with the horror element. And I too anticipate more of Selena and Joel’s story! I think Selena will end up a fan favorite for the award, but I doubt she’ll win since she’s no longer contracted. She still has Forensic Heroes 4, but that’s to be aired next year probably … so if she doesn’t win this year, perhaps with FH4 haha.
  • I haven't been so excited for a TVB drama in such a long time. I started watching episode 1 online at 1am thinking, eh, it's TVB, how scary could it be? I closed my browser 5 minutes in lol. The cases are unpredictable and the horror part is mostly psychological. Not much jump scare which is great news for me. I can't wait until they dig further into Selena and Joe's story. Since it's Selena's last series, I don't think TVB will give her the TV queen award, but she might become one of the top choices for fans.
  • #6 and 7 is somewhat reasonable but the rest are ridiculous lol. These children don't know how the industry work. If the company can't make money from their artist why do they even bother managing them?
  • @iciel Yeh, the big productions are always handed out to the likes of Nancy and Ali with the rest having mop up the cheap productions. The current TVB landscape though, anybody could make a breakthrough then can be promoted into the bigger productions with many starting a family, aging or blacklisted. Ben Wong is another example of a lead who has been mopping up the crappy 'nobody remembers' type series for years...
