• @joycek Yes, his loved ones will be many times sadder, especially his parents. I really feel for his father. Imagine the shock and heartbreak of finding his son dead alone in his house. His friends sang this song together in memory of him. This song is specifically written by Jacky Wu for him. It's so touching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDL_FBJQnHk
  • @kidd Heartbreaking news that had me in disbelief too, must be a million times sadder for his immed loved ones. I watched his local drama from years ago, and a local movie he starred in called "already famous". Rest in peace, Alien.
  • This come as such a big shock for me. He's still so young. I used to like him a lot when he was hosting with Show Luo. I even bought his solo album. Such a sad new. R.I.P.
  • @funnlim I like Jackson Wang too. I'm watching Idol Producer now and his classes are the most fun to watch because he often uses ingenious ways to teach his students.
  • @seriously I don't understand HKers hate for William Chan. I already like him when he was still playing supporting roles in HK movies. I think he's pretty good looking with decent acting skill and can be quite charming in the right role. As for Wallace Chung. I think he's a very good actor. He's already good when he's still with TVB. Just watch him play a retarded boy in 'Journey of Love'. Very convincing.
  • Why are China dramas all so long? I want to check this out for Dong Yanlei. But the number of episodes (50) scares me. I think I'll go check out My Youth first.
  • @kidd Well she is a wife and mother now so of course has that maturity that young and single girls do not have. I wonder why they could not find someone younger to be the female lead? They can be older than WYB but not 10 years older. There are plenty of young and pretty actresses these days.
  • ZLY not only has to close the 10 year age gap between her and WYB, she also need to look much younger because WYB's character in the novel is 7 years older than her character. She does not look 16 in the filming stills showed earlier. Her age and maturity clearly showed. But, in this trailer she does look convincing as a younger girl. Hope she and WYB has good chemistry.
  • @gnomageddon I didn't follow all Kevin and Grace's news. But, from the little I read, I also don't feel Kevin is patronizing towards Grace. I remember reading one news where Grace came out to public 2 weeks after giving birth. Reporter asked Kevin about it, and Kevin replied that he did give Grace's advice, but, he respects her decision. Confinement is a huge thing. It affects the future health of the mother. But, he still respected her decision to come out because it's her body. So, I don't think Kevin is 大男人. But, Ruco is. Not only by speech, he even did it in front of camera. In one episode of Beautiful Cooking 3, Ruco was one of the guests there to taste the food and Phoebe was one of the many cooking apprentices. Phoebe was cooking her dish and Ruco kept on giving her instructions. Eh, even the celebrity chef there didn't do that.
  • I'm surprised that she has bipolar disorder and have so big mood swings. She seems to have such high EQ. I remember when everyone was dissing her early in her acting career, she just kept quiet and show a positive front while improving gradually in her acting. People complained about her annoying voice and in her next series, her voice become more toned down and less annoying. She listen to criticism and improved on them. Can't imagine behind all this she suffered so much emotionally.
  • @seriously According to this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMRphhJycZc this sequel will be set 20 years after the first movie. So, ZWJ will be in his late 30s. Raymond would be the right age for the role.
  • @oystergirl "On the other hand, there are tonnes of popular comics that cater to a heterosexual audience, so why seek out a lesbian one in particular?" Because the dynamic of the relationship is different between heterosexual couple and same-sex couple. Hard to explain.
  • If Yang Mi love all things comic and manhua-related, she would have read many different genre of comics. Like @megamiaow said Yuri are not only read by lesbian women and Yaoi are only read by gay men. People are thinking too much. :P
  • I'm really not trilled with the adaptation of 'Liu Jin Sui Yue'. 'Liu Jin Sui Yue' is a rare Chinese novel that I read that focus on the strong friendship between 2 women. The 2 lead female characters have know each other since school days and even though they walk different path and not always together, they are always there for each other when one or the other is in need. Romance is secondary in this story. It's about friendship and woman standing on her own feet. There is no man standing between the good friends like in the movie adaptation. Can the drama script really be faithful to this kind of novel? They failed in the adaptation of 'The First Half of My Life' (another of the author's novel). The scriptwriter add an original white knight oppa character into the adaptation because, according to her, 'a drama need to have a male lead'. What more, the white knight oppa is the boyfriend of main lead's best friend and this best friend who help her when she's down end up losing her boyfriend to the female lead. :(
  • @m0m0 The Chinese government tried to keep the people conservative, but, in actuality many are not anymore. It's inevitable with the advance of technology and communication and influx of ideas from around the world. But, even in the most conservative country, there will be people with unique ideas and that go against the norm.
  • @kidd homosexuality is shun upon in many cultures not just chinese. people have been practicing it and it's an act of natural not something people made up but yet people can't accept it still.
  • @kidd Agree, I dont see the point if they need to change the leads genders. It would just upset fans of the series and takes away from its essence.
  • @kidd i watched the little bit b/c the leads were cute but the fact that it was a man in a woman's body was hard to swallow. overall, i got to appreciate the novelty of the idea. got to give credit to someone to come up with it in such a conservative country.
  • @m0m0 BL is not exclusively a Chinese culture or Japanese culture. You not accepting BL doesn't make you more or less Chinese. Each culture has many subcultures that have strong following that the mainstream people are not aware of. There are also a lot of slash/femslash literature in American. It also laughable for some Chinese to think that homosexuality are white people thing and homosexuality in China are bad influence from the PC west. Homosexuality exist long time ago in China past history. They even have a term for such relationship.
  • @m0m0 Maybe it's because of the weird plot that it became a cult following. I find the premise more interesting than a girl travel back into time and have romance with all the important (and handsome) men of the past. Plus, the series is actually very funny and entertaining.
