• @kidd i wonder who actually paid attention to this news other than the number of comments about this on jaynestars....
  • @kidd majority of the western world has a weird view of China. they probably think we're all mystical and kung-fu fighting lol.
  • "As reported in the BBC article, menstruation and tampons are considered to be topics that people in China find uncomfortable to discuss" I think BBC got it wrong, or their info is outdated. I've seen more than one Mainland China series that mentioned/showed mensuration and its related sanitary product. Chinese people are more open than BBC assumed.
  • @llwy12 "It’s already rumored that majority of Chrissie Chau’s scenes will be cut due to the ban on artists from Stephen Shiu Jr’s company" This is a big disappointment for me. The main attraction to this series for me is Chrissie Chau. If their are going to cut majority of her scenes, I might as well wait for the overseas version. I hope when they release it in DVD form, it will be a complete version.
  • @kidd Charmaine definitely has alot more good friends than the 6 mentioned here...since this article was focused on the cliques and groups at TVB, no surprise that others not belonging to the group weren't mentioned. Not sure about Marie Chan but yea, Catherine Chau is very close with Charmaine, as is former TVB actor Bryant Mak, who is their god-brother. I've never been a fan of Charmaine's and I'm still not keen on her acting, but my respect for her as a person did go up a notch a few years back when Catherine made it big at HKTV and Charmaine openly showed her support for her, despite the fact that she was working for (and still contracted with) TVB at the time (I remember Charmaine posting about episodes of HKTV series she had watched on her social media and praising Catherine for her performance...also, she and Catherine continued to hang out and even attended functions together where HKTV people were present). We all know how big the rivalry was between TVB and HKTV back then (though technically it was more one-sided in that TVB hated HKTV for being a legitimate threat to their monopoly so anyone who dared to associate themselves with HKTV were pretty much asking for TVB's wrath), so for Charmaine to not give a crap and still support her friend was a big deal to me -- especially given how most other TVB artists tried to steer as far away as possible from anyone even remotely associated with HKTV (some friendships actually went south because of it, which I personally thought was stupid on the artists' part).
  • Why no mention of Charmaine well-known good friends like Catherine Chau and Marie Chan? Anyway, I notice that Charmaine was bridesmaid in many celebrity wedding. This shows that she's good friend with many people in the industry, even though she's not in the famous cliques.
  • @kidd Haha. I did not know that. If Disney went with that storyline, I would've boycotted it! I'm so glad they didn't lol. Disney version we know is what it is. Their live adaption for Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast 99% resembled the cartoons. I feel or hoped the Mulan is closely adapted from its cartoon version too because I really liked Disney cartoon version, lol. I seemed to be the minority though because a lot of people, from comments I read on and off Jayne, have been 1) Shang better handsome, 2) awe at star power of the cast, and 3) Crystal is a wooden actress. I'm on #3 bandwagon too, but seeing the rest of the cast... they're not known to "emote" either... BTW, there are tweets confirmed that there will be NO Li Shang and NO singing. NO SINGING... wt eff :'( So this is more like a long distance remake of the huge bombed and utterly stupid Great Wall movie with Andy Lau and Matt Damon. Mulan has one-up though: all (somehow) Asian actors and actresses (thus far).
  • @jjwong Do you know that the original story concept of Disney Mulan has Mulan following her fiancé to the battle field? Then someone in the production team (maybe the producer or scriptwriter) who has a daughter felt that the the original story of Mulan going to battle for her father is more touching and shows good family value. So, they follow back the story concept in the Mulan poem and the final product became the Mulan cartoon many loves. :D
  • I like the names they gave their children. Proper names and good sounding but not too common.
  • @llwy12 Thanks for the info. I do like Legendary Pictures' productions. Most of the films the company involved in are fantasy films, which is a genre I like. As long as it continues making entertaining fantasy films, I don't mind the token Chinese actors. Just don't compromise on the integrity of the story-line. I hope Warcraft made enough money to get part 2.
  • @funnlim @kidd Definitely connections, but not necessarily boyfriends. Rumor has it that Jing Tian is from a "powerful" family in China (think government-related) and that is why she has been able to get the opportunities she has. The media has been commenting for a long time already on her "flaunting of tremendous wealth" that doesn't seem to be in-line with her income, as all of the films she was in bombed at the box office so it's not like she is a "highly sought after" actress bringing in millions of dollars each project (the government connections were "confirmed" in many people's eyes awhile back ago when some media outlets and discussion forums were "mysteriously forced" to remove topics discussing her background on their sites -- a very common China government tactic). Supposedly because of those connections, she has Dalian Wanda Group backing her, which explains why she is in all those Hollywood productions, since almost all of them have Legendary Pictures as one of the "executive producers" (Legendary is U.S./Hollywood-based production company owned by Wanda Group since 2016).
  • @kidd She's not that proficient. Am sure there are others. I think connection is more like it. Any boyfriends?
  • @funnlim Wonder why Jing Tian get to be in so many Hollywood big budget movies. Because of her proficiency in English?
  • @kidd I don’t think that was so they can pick a good date. Generally twins put a lot of stress on the mother, and the placenta has a time limit (and the placenta is their only life line), that’s why 42weeks = inducing, otherwise the baby will be in trouble if not still born. With twins, the placenta will deplete quite fast, and the space, etc, I had gestational diabetes and I was induced at 38w and 5days. Could have been earlier if it wasn’t for we have to fit my OB schedule, etc. so I think the main factor will be the OB schedule lol, she will give them a few dates she’s free, and you pick one, good day or not, depend on your luck.
  • @kidd what @janet72 said. Twins are usually delivered early due to space... Those things (babies) grow like weeds in the last month inside!
  • I remember reading about Aaron Kwok's one. It's was one of his customers that he service AC for that recommended him to join TVB. The guy work in TVB's canteen or something.
  • "Lynn will reportedly deliver her twins via cesarean section two weeks before her scheduled due date." I know they might have chosen a good birthdate to deliver the babies, but, I wonder if it's a wise decision. Would it affect the babies' health to take them out before they are ready? I know some kids come out earlier than their due date. But, in most of these cases, it's the mom's body or the baby who decide it's ready to come out.
