• manager’s portrayal Addy, do you mean to write 'betrayal' instead of 'portrayal'?
  • I think Louis Koo purposely sing awful in this song. Here's his live singing in one of Sammi's concert. He's not bad at all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhgAFkzFBHg
  • @kidd Thanks kidd. Didnt check fill now but will definately look at the recommendations. I did like C AllStar – 無懼 :)
  • @passingby Phil Lam is also not bad. I like his 高山低谷. For band, I like C AllStar.
  • @mike Maybe she really loves the man and want to spend the rest of her life with him. I know we will only get the full picture when we get the POV of her husband. But, from this article alone, I think she's doing good for her husband. He has some bad experience in the past that lead to his reluctance to have children. It's not that he does not like children, he's just afraid the kid will not turn out right. What Christine does is help him overcome and let go of this fear. If she succeed it will be very freeing for her husband.
  • @kidd Yes and no. I agree with you that there are still talented singers and songwriters in HK and we should definitely support them, but at the same time, we also need to face reality and acknowledge that the HK music industry and Cantonese songs as a whole have been dying out. I don’t think it’s about being negative, but rather facing the facts and understanding where the problem lies, which is important because the only way to truly fix (or attempt to fix) an issue is to acknowledge it and figure out what is causing it (root cause). One of the reasons why TVB has become the way they are now is because their approach whenever problems arise is to bury their heads in the sand and deny that there is a problem in the first place – no problem = nothing needs to be fixed, which allows them to continue doing what they do (and continue to be stagnant and increasingly irrelevant in a world that has already been several steps ahead of them for years). And no, not all the new artists are bad….some of them are actually quite good (like Hubert Wu for example), but unfortunately, there aren’t enough of the “good” ones to make up for the “not-so-good” ones, which is where the imbalance lies. And with the way the industry works nowadays, with the rise of the Mainland China market, the reality is the HK market is too small to be sustainable, so the imbalance (in terms of talent) exacerbates things significantly. Add to that the “exclusivity” of TV stations like TVB with all of their restrictive rules and such, which creates a system that basically only promotes their own (largely talentless) singers. Singers not signed with TVB need to rely on other platforms to get their music out to the masses, which is increasingly difficult in HK with only a few options (the other 2 free-to-air TV stations, though not many watch them compared to TVB or the 3 main radio stations, which all have their own rules and restrictions). Definitely agree that JSG is NOT an accurate reflection of the HK music industry anymore – which is why long-time HK music fans like me don’t even want this award ceremony to go on any more because all it does is further add fuel to the fire. We all poke fun at Louis Koo winning Most Popular Male at CRHK Chik Chak awards, but at least that win was for a specific purpose – it was HK music fans way of saying how crappy HK music awards shows are and how tired we are of the way things have gotten (to the point that we are going to vote for a non-singer who hasn’t released a single album that year and only had ½ a song in contention to win the main singing award). With Louis’s win though (and kudos to Louis for being such a good sport, since he’s well aware that everyone is using him to mock the system), at least the music industry is getting something out of it, as Louis already made it clear that in his current capacity as President of HKPAG, he is going to push for something that the HK music industry (and almost all of HK’s veteran singers) have been asking for the past 2 decades but have not managed to get: one unified music award ceremony (not affiliated with any TV or radio station) where all singers can participate and will truly represent HK music industry (similar to how Taiwan has GMA and the U.S. has the Grammys). As a long-time HK music fan, I’m hoping Louis’s project becomes a reality sooner rather than later (word on the street is that he’s been in closed door meetings with music industry people for awhile already pushing things along, so there’s some hope). :-)
  • @megamiaow I have to agree with you that the current singers mostly sing slow song. Slow songs with good melody and lyrics are what I prefer. So, I have many songs I like. I don't have much recommendation for fast catchy tune. These few songs should be quite catchy or at least not boring slow. Sherman Chung has some more fast songs. I just list 2 below. 胡鴻鈞 Hubert - 到此一遊 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSHVPxO2tbo Dear Jane - 也許我不會活多一歲 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDYRoLDyRWU 鍾舒漫 Sherman Chung《R U Naughty?》 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPrq9xQVk_A 鍾舒漫 Sherman Chung - "開心節" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuvKMK6oUJ4 ToNick - 很想跳吧 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jok0avh8kYo Gin Lee 李幸倪 - 《風靡》 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY1ZpuCub6Q 黃明志Namewee Feat.盧巧音Candy Lo【唱廣東歌Sing Cantonese Song 】 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgAetMBOoEA C AllStar - 無懼 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCiJ5CT91oo C AllStar - 大同 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PquPxCt8Rg
  • @kidd Totally agree! I've been following Cantopop closely for the past few years and there have been many new songs that have come out that I like. My Cantopop collection has songs from the 70s to now, and as long as I and others enjoy them, then I say live and let live.
  • @kidd Ive been trying to give them a chance, but all been slow songs and they bore me. I prefer upbeat catchy songs. Any fast tunes recommendations?
  • @wm2017 For voice and singing, I like Jason Chan more. :) People actually confused them in the past (early in their career) because of the the similarity of the chinese name. One is Pak Ho, one is Pak Yu.
  • I think there are still many talented singers and songwriters in HK. We need to give them our support if we want the HK music industry and Cantonese songs to stay afloat and maintain relevance. Give some positive energy to the industry. :) I see a many here keep saying HK music industry is gone, the new artists not as good as old. But, how many actually listen to these new artists or give them a chance? There are still singer-songwriters and music band/group in HK making their own music. JSG might be great in the past, but, it's not an accurate reflection of HK music industry anymore. There are more singers out there than HANA and Jinny Ng. They just didn't participate or get nominated in JSG.
  • @mysterym2m John Chiang and David Chiang is same person.
  • @kidd Agree Crystal was really good in Apple Colada for a beginner. Louisa acting has been a lot weaker in her roles although she has participated in far more series...
  • @yuaida I've not seen Louisa act, so, can't comment about her. But, I've seen Crystal act in 'Apple-colada' and she acted very well for a newbie (Apple was only her second series). Her acting is very natural. So, I think she does have talent in acting.
  • I wonder how his ex-wife is doing now. I hope she's doing well. She's the one who get the shortest end of the stick in this whole affair.
  • Still feel most sorry for the innocent baby. "Although getting an abortion harms her health, Michelle had no choice or it would be too late later." The only one who has no choice whatsoever is the baby.
  • The only one I feel sorry for in this case is the soon-to-be-aborted baby. Life cut short because of the mistake of 2 adults. The way the woman talk about her child, it's like the baby is just an inconvenience instead a life growing in her.
  • I hope this freeze in only temporary. I actually like him and he has played so many minor roles before having this chance. He worked his way up. Hope he will be given a second chance like TVB gave Joel Chan.
  • @damiwon Well, it's just speculations. https://www.jaynestars.com/news/vincent-wongs-flirtatious-ways-leads-to-end-of-marriage-with-yoyo-chen/ https://www.jaynestars.com/news/vincent-wong-yoyo-chens-marriage-at-risk-vincent-were-fine/ https://www.jaynestars.com/news/vincent-wong-spotted-at-sisley-chois-home/
