• @jayne The problem is that TVB is far too cautious and would rather keep relying on the old rating guaranteed veterans such as Bobby,Moses and rather bring back Raymond than to gamble on a younger actor. The ‘five tigers’ were all carrying lead roles all by themselves at an early age. It’s hard for a young actor to shine or learn more about himself when he is either playing support or 2nd lead.
  • @kidd It takes far more things for a plan to fall into place than just naming a group of kids the ‘five tigers’ then promoting them. It needs all of them to have similar work ethic, good popularity, strong roles and timing. I don’t know when exactly the 80s five tigers were named but I would guess it was ‘after’ all of them have starred in at least a few successful hits each. They were probably all established before they got given their nickname just like the ‘four Heavenly Kings’ in music. It’s just a stupidly hopeful gimmick in the 90s when they named the new 5 tigers because barely any of them had even done anything in acting and that’s the same for the Millennial version. It looks like desperation to me. It was different in the early 1980s because most of the leads had left TVB and there was a void to fill. The promoted five tigers were all at the same early stage of their careers and all had the same respectful and dedicated attitude. If there were anyone who can be considered as promoted or irrespective of age then the more suitable candidates would be the likes of Gallen, Louis, Canti Lau, Chilam. Currently the only young actor capable and shown promise is Mathew Ho...
  • @jimmyszeto loool yes we all know tvb now vs then.... Pretty sure lots of Mirror members at Viu TV are more popular than these five and under 30 eg. Keung To, Ian, Edan. Like, should not the new five really be Brian Tse, Matthew, Kalok, Joey, and Dickson? And eventually they'll have to pull Kalok from the sitcom timeslot with real serial dramas if they want to promote him. Dickson is not in dramas enough to get experience. Anyways, kind of too little too late. I'd say the female version of five tigers has even lower prospects.
  • @bubbles23 If those unknowns are Five Tigers then Mathew can be compared to Chow Yun Fat given his dominance. It’s a joke if a comparison can be made since of these 5 actors none of them have even had a big role nevermind a big hit performance. Aside from that 3 of them over yrs old including two of them over 30yrs old. No achievements at at an advanced age too
  • @tt23 At the time I knew how good Liu Kai Chi’s performance was because I hated the character so much but re-watching I’m even more focused on his expressions and the details in his acting and it’s unreal. Can’t believe a few years ago prior to this series, this powerhouse actor was given feeble dad roles and minor comedy relief support. Ali is just as usual very photogenic in the series but had the same few expressions in every scene. It’s very solid for a first time lead as didn’t feel like she was reciting lines at all or overacting like other promoted female leads. Considering at the time Ali had mainly played mistresses or minor cameos.
  • I rewatched this as they’ve been promoting it on YouTube. Agree with @jimmyszeto, Liu Kai Chi was so good in it. I actually didn’t think Ali was that great in the show, I didn’t see any “Best Actress” material like this article talks about and the character development was barely there, it was painful to watch her to be honest. And I love Ali lol
  • Currently re-watching Law Dis-Order. Liu Kai Chi insanely good as the villain. Hate his character to the core. Amazing that yearly there are absolute gems of performances ignored at the end of year awards....
  • @bubbles23 Usually get years in jail just for an attempt nevermind 18 counts including the damage he has caused. In the west, this type of offender will get smashed to bits in jail by other inmates . I wonder what it will be like for him in a HK jail. Enjoy!
  • @jimmyszeto And she gets to chill in the US to avoid some covid ccp ish :P Probably got vaccinated already too...I'm guessing she's in Cali.
  • ‘Zheng Shuang will be focusing on fighting for the custody rights to her children, and has no plans for work in the entertainment industry for the time being’. She’s blacklisted from the entertainment industry so can’t work anyway and the reason she is battling for custody of the children is to improve her name..
  • @bubbles23 Playing police traffic officer in a traffic accident drama as well.....
  • @jimmyszeto Yeah, I agree. No wonder the talent is so bad.
  • Only a 3 month course....
  • @jimmyszeto how did he get even fans? Not sure if Grace is down to earth but she’s definitely not one that sees her own flaws... her replies re her own acting skills were unbelievable
  • They all hated Kevin but loved Raymond in Gloves come Off. I think we all know Kevin is not the nicest of people. Lucky to find a down to earth girl like Grace... @conan2209 https://www.jaynestars.com/news/sin-ho-ying-kevin-cheng-is-self-centered-raymond-wong-is-a-great-guy/ https://www.dramasian.com/threads/lee-ka-ding-tvb-spoiled-kevin-cheng-he-lacks-an-actors-ethics.75122/
  • @theyenman Losing weight is simple but people refuse to believe in reality and buy all these diet pills and powders because they want to continue eating heavily but think these products will somehow magically take weight off their bodies. If want to lose weight then just eat less or fast. Also avoid carbohydrates.(Rice, bread, potatoes, noodles). Gaining muscles on certain parts of body will probably need a trainer though..
  • I thought all these brands manufactured products by forced harsh labour all over the world anyway....
  • @jimmyszeto I did not comment on her acting or who she married... I do find her pretty but I would not say her personality is down-to-earth, at least it doesn't seem so to me. Nor am I a fan of that type of personality. I find it a bit annoying. Thought this was a place to discuss/share our thoughts.
  • @potatochip I won't be watching 'The Runner' either. Tony didn't have correct looks and build for the role but then and again he normally pulls it off anyway like in 'New Heaven Sword Dragon Sabre'.
