• @anon yup, and kingdom is such a good actress, if she’s not happy with your scenes, you must have been bad lol.
  • @littlefish True, I think anyone would find being called Uncle or Auntie old. Unless they have asked you to call them something just default to sister or brother first. I do remember when I was 17 I was working for someone who was just 30 and she asked me to call her Auntie. She seemed the old fashioned type though. There would be no way Id ask someone to call me that (maybe ever).
  • @seriously well, no. About 10yr-ish ago, I remember calling someone uncle because he’s about 15yrs older than me. However, the first thing he said to me was: oh don’t call me that, I’m not that old, just call me brother. So if you don’t know the person, sure, uncle is most respectful. However if you do know the person/being asked to not call them uncle(/being g a celebrity and keep each other’s face in the public) then you also need to be respectful and call them brother (providing it’s not for perverted reasons). It’s just common courtesy :)
  • @msxie0714 just to further my point on why GJM is still bad/how Chinese just copy Hollywood ideas blatantly. Take the ying yang master movie, if you look at the trailer, which is in the other article I think, it shows how mark chao’s character was basically doing all spells with circles. Ok, so we all know ying yang, but the circle design look more like dr strange’s circle than anything we see in China. And yes, dr strange and the whole series is about Asian culture, so that’s why you can see the Asian root there. But again, before dr strange, have you see anything like that in Chinese drama? No. In Chinese fantasy series, we don’t have portals. We have teleportation, where a person blink and appear in a different spot, you can bring a companion if you hold on to that person. You can argue that the lack of advancement in technology resulting in them only able to do blink, and not portal. But to use the same circle like dr strange to open a portal to go through a different place, this is the first I have ever seen in Chinese fantasy series! And next one is shielding of incoming attacks, in Chinese dramas, we always either use a flying object and use force behind it to shield off attacks or use force (no true physical form of the force) to hold it off. We don’t have a circle spell to shield it off ever!!!! Look, I will not be pissed if he has use a triangle shield. Or an oval gateway for portal. But he’s literally being lazy, he copy every moves from DR strange! Just because Dr strange gets inspired by Asian/Chinese culture, doesn’t make it ok for GJM to copy every moves to the T without an ounce of originality to it!!!
  • @msxie0714 Uhm, that’s not copyright >_> hairstyles and fashion trends are part of life. so what if it looks like Chinese costumes, with Chinese being the largest population in the world, is it surprising that later on, far far away in the future their influences are not left behind? If you want to argue that Hollywood copy China, let me just remind you how blatantly they copy TLotR’s elven hair pieces, they even copy the pointy ears into their Fox demon series. The difference between Hollywood copying and Chinese copy is 1 actually put thoughts into it, and try to respect it (at the beginning might not be so, but overtime, with public pressure, they did), whereas the other 1 is just out right copy it, doesn’t respect it, and if being called out, totally ignored it, and lie about it, while continually copy it again and again! (Yes they might have paid the Hollywood dude to do the hair pieces for the fantasy ice series but again, originality is zero! They literally tell the dude I’m paying you for the right to use what similar to TLotR stuff, take the money, you don’t need to work and we get to use it.) With martial art, it’s a type of movie genre. Are you telling me that Japanese can only do anime and no one else in the world can do anime now??? Chinese will only able to do period costume drama, while the west can do all the sci-fi, and zombie movie >_>? And with the wire work, again, technical stuffs, should China not incorporate the west’s latest advances in camera and other technologies and ideas on how to film certain stuffs? There is the right way to obtain and use the knowledge and ideas, and there is the wrong way of doing it. I have always look down on China because they have never tried to do anything to fix this problem. But now they have, and they themselves know it’s a problem and that’s why they are fixing it and I applaud them for it.
  • @msxie0714 Yu Mama lost the court case, he paid the damage to Chiung Yao. As part of the lost, he meant to also publicly apologise to her, but he never follow up. As a matter of fact, he just ignored it until now, only after 100+ writers did a public boycott against him and GJM. Also same with GJM, it’s not about the current movie, ying yang master, that he got into trouble with. It’s about the previous works he done, which clearly plagiarised, got called out, and again, didn’t want to publicly apologise for it. The thing about cinema and TV stations start taking their series off is because 1 - the government is really going in on this. 2 - like FBB, the glaring obviously cases will be the martyr/sacrificial lamb so people know to not do that
  • @littlefish Is the translation accurate? He had to apologize for plagiarizing earlier works. I read that GJM actually bought the rights to Yin Yang Master from the Japanese author who was influenced by Tang Dynasty culture.
  • @littlefish Lol ruby lin didn't even look like she was young even in her thirties which is very usual for an Asian person. Acting wise, can't comment in it cause I don't watch her enough
  • @littlefish thats very interesting, ill look up the video. I feel tvb girls are trying to look pretty in camera and that does not make it " real " for me. I grew up watching tvb and been loyal until every told me to give c drama a shot. If tvb care about quality at all- they should start looking for ppl from acting schools.
  • @m0m0 as much as I love Ruby, but she’s main role because she’s the producer lol. And Sun Li, Zhou Xun, even Zhang Yi Zi is being criticised for playing role way younger than their age. There’s just not many scripts for older women sadly :(
  • @nleung12345 yea, Zhou Xun is truly something. My first watch of her was the movie skin swap? (Or skin something) with Vicky shao. And wow, she was sooo mesmerising. There’s a YouTube video by AvenueX talk about her, and how because she’s grew up watching movies that she’s very aware of how to act with the camera, it likes every part of her reacting to the camera
  • @littlefish true that mature lead roles r limited but look at sun li, zhou xun, rudy lin. all lead ladies. it's the popularity and acting that'd limiting her roles not exactly the age.
  • Dude is a 2 faces, who literally would not careless about leeching off others’ ideas! “ Yu Zheng revealed that it was not easy for him” - yea, because his huge a!! ego prevents him from apologising 6years ago, and even now, if not for the government cracks down on plagiarism. Honestly I would not care if they put him in jail, the only person I’m worried for is Bailu, she and many other actresses have nothing to do with this really.
  • Wow, now I see how much it rips off Dr strange, lol! Yup, Chinese fantasy has never had teleport gates, nor do they have circle shield while hand is circling around. Those are basically special moves from Dr strange universe *facepalm*. At least this would stop Chinese movies from blatantly copy western movies (remember those elvish crowns from TLoTR, or those pointy ears xD?).
  • Unless she has a big fan base, she won’t be able to get any main role simply because she’s too old. Chinese market needs you to be young, pretty and relatively unknown (cheaper salary).
  • @seriously lmao! Best comment ever xD
  • Oh no >_< always love seeing her act, evil or nice. RIP and you’ll be dearly missed!
  • @gnomageddon haha I’m never good at those abstract thing either xD @hetieshou I also thought it was the butt at first too xD then I’m like if that was the butt, the baby has unusual thigh xD
  • @littlefish OMG... you're so right! I totally see it now that you pointed it out! LOL! Thanks! I feel like I just figured out an abstract piece of "art/photo" or one of those which illusion do you see type of thing! Hahaha
  • @gnomageddon the side of her right face, her right cheek lol. You can see a bit of the mouth and the eye. But that’s only my guess, with these things, it could totally be an unexpected area xD
