• @luye I think Jacqueline initiated her affection towards Kenneth in the beginning. Not sure if it was her real affection or part of her scheme. TVB usually likes to promote couples if both of them are their artistes, like Bernice and Moses; Myolie and Bosco; Grace and Kevin. Once Kenneth was attracted by her, TVB took the opportunity to promote them as a couple, and Jacqueline was promoted by TVB more. Perhaps Kenneth really fell for her after her too many attempts. However, I don't think TVB made them show up as a couple just for promotions.
  • @coralie JW shows little remorse because she probably feels no remorse of the situation. Honestly, if she felt bad about cheating and getting involved with a married man, then she wouldnt have done it in the first place, over and over. So, why would she feel bad now? KM is a very nice man, and he chose forgiveness. As a public figure, he doesnt want to spread more negativity, as he just wants the whole thing to pass. But maybe he is heart broken inside and doesnt show it. I dont buy the whole TVB tied them together for promotion. It doesnt make sense because if TVB wants to promote JW, they would. There are many women who are promoted without dating a celebrity, such as Roxanne, Kelly Cheung, Sisley, Moon, Katy, Rebecca, Ali, and many more.
  • @luye I think it's unintentional on both sides. One misunderstood the boundaries of the actress and one said too much without thinking it may have a negative effect on the male...
  • @luye it may have been unprofessional in one aspect but in an rehearsed scene you just aren't going to capture the essence of a natural believable couple. The reason why some actors are incredibly successful are that they creatively work their way into the scene rather go fully off the script...
  • @jimmyszeto i agree with you that it may have been unintentional on Tony's side, which is probably why Rebecca isnt making a big deal out of the situation. She verbally expressed her discomfort in a joking matter, instead of actually trying to get him fired by complaining to the executives. With that said, pretty sure she will stop talking about it now as Tony is upset & learned his lesson
  • @xrc56 Rebecca mentioned during the interview that they would rehearse the scene beforehand & there was no kissing. However, once they started to record, Tony would kiss her & that surprised her caught her off guard. It's so unprofessional of Tony because how are you going to do something different from rehearsal without informing your partner?
  • @luye You definitely do not know what are the elements of sexual harassment. Tony hung kissed her is to create a real connection between viewers and characters in a story as a husband and wife. The moment you accepted the drama to portray as someone's wife, bodily contact is expectable. Unless it's too over and severe like touching your breast or slapping ur butt @@. The judge will analyze whether is it appropriate under such circumstances in the field of filming. And most importantly TVB never agreed with the allegations or else Tony would have been frozen because they will judge his overall character as well in the company.
  • @luye Like I said so far this soy sauce series is nowhere near as good as the plain love series and sequels which includes ‘country spirit’. Plain love I with Gallen and Kathy was the best, then plain love 2 Gordon Maggie, country spirit was borderline acceptable. It’s going to take something special for this series to match those classics...
  • this drama reminds me of Country Spirit 酒是故鄉醇 where Charmaine played lead role & saved the family business. I have a feeling it will be similar in that sense with Rebecca
  • @xrc56 "maybe Tony concentrated portraying her husband & was too happy too kiss her. Just give benefit of the doubt" I hope you realize that this is what goes through a victim's mind after being sexually assaulted. They think of a lot of excuses to comprehend what just happened. This is the mindset that leads to a lot of people getting away with sexual harassment. Why make excuses for someone when all they had to do was ask for consent before making someone else feel uncomfortable? Rebecca is obviously unhappy & uncomfortable, and Tony is responsible for what happened.
  • @luye now that they have a baby, they'll try and make it work. but they don't come off to me like their marriage is a product of careful consideration, love and commitment. rather, they come off as a product of circumstances. honorable, maybe (depends if they're doing it for reputation or not) but not really promising. can they still have a happy marriage? I never said they can't. but it's very annoying that they use marriage to excuse their situation.
  • @luye "Some people dont want to give birth before marriage." See, this is where the reasoning doesn't make sense. On one hand, they want children, but they want children only after marriage. Then why not get married and THEN have kids. Or have the kid and then get married. Why is it that it has to be get pregnant and then rush a wedding? It's insulting. You don't need to have kids to have a wedding. You can get married just to get married. If there's a physical reason to get married, like kids, then it's no longer marriage for the sole purpose of love. It is for image and face.
  • @coralie why cant it be both? Do you think that a couple who gets married after they find out they're pregnant dont respect marriage? Do you think that they wont have a successful & happy marriage? I personally feel that as long as the relationship is strong, then hopefully the marriage will last
  • @coralie maybe pregnancy was an "accident" but even so, if the couple is ready to get married, then why not? Maybe they're in love & were planning to marry each other anyway. Some people dont want to give birth before marriage. What do you mean by they need to "validate their love"? People can be in love, marriage or not.
  • @luye disrespectful to the foundation of marriage itself. and I find it offensive, even if it's an outdated concept. they are posers. they get married, but don't believe in marriage - it's only a ceremony to cleanse people's image of them. if they truly cared, they wouldn't wait until a baby came along to ink it
  • @luye Yea, sure, there is a stigma attached to unmarried mothers (all over, though perhaps more severe in Asia), but if they care so much to begin with, there wouldn't be these accidents, now would there. My point being, marriage is not a cover-up and not an excuse generator. People get preggo all the time by accident, but if marriage was in the cards, then there is no need for shotgun. There is nothing wrong with having a child and then getting married after with post-planning. My beef is with people who gets pregnant and then tries to validate the "love" by getting married. No, that's called PR and trying to save their image.
  • @luye Yea...he’s very close with his son. Back in the late 1970s, he actually had a stroke while on set (he was only 33 at the time and was working for RTV, the precursor to ATV)..he said he was able to pull through and leave the hospital so quickly because of his son, who was only 2 or 3 years old..he had to get well for his son’s sake. And yes, he worked hard for decades to put his only son through school..his son is in his 40s now and works in finance...if anything, Lau Kong (who is known for being a good father) has a good son who will take care of him and his wife, so he doesn’t have to worry financially at least...
  • @vodka oh really? didnt know that. thanks for that info.
  • @coralie disrespectful to who?
  • @coralie Marriage is a big commitment. People dont get married so that they can "screw around without planning for consequences." I dont think people marry solely because of a child. There are many things that lead to marriage, such as timing, love and commitment. It's not about what you mind. Unfortunately, in Chinese society, there is still negativity around women giving birth before marriage.
