• "According to reports, the studios of the upcoming TV drama Novoland: Pearl Eclipse had agreed to pay their lead stars Yang Mi and William Chan 100 million yuan each, but due to the new law, their pay was reduced to 70 percent of its original amount, down to under 30 million yuan." 100M yuan each, now reduced to 70% of original amount...wouldn't that be 70M yuan? Or do you mean reduced by 70%? Or maybe it was "Lead actors’ pay packets restricted to 70% of total wages for the cast of a show " https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jun/28/china-caps-film-star-pay-citing-money-worship-and-fake-contracts "A large portion of that pay would also be taxed. " Were their income not taxed before?
  • The problem with HK film industry: Lack of creativity. Cop Movie, Shollow and pitiful family problem movies/tv shows, Cop movies, Cop movies, and move Cop movies. Lack of good actors: Same few actor/actress over and over again. And most of them just acting/playing the same character on every film but just reading different lines. Lack of budge: same low quality, same kelefeh movies over and over. Lack of Drives, Ambition and Vision: again, only doing the same safe and kelefeh movies. No innovation, no breakthroughs, no improvements. The Hong Kong film industry is fundamental. The whole industry is lack of money, artists and directors. There is just no simple or easy fix at all.
  • Is he suppose to be like Dare Devil without the super power or the coolness?
  • Congrats to Grace and Kevin. Don't wait till you are 40+ to have babies. Having a baby at 40+ have higher potential health risk to the mom and the baby. Eh, Charmaine?
  • @tomtom Social media And YouTube are essential methods to put your name out there. Can’t make much money unless selling a product, a service or a skill..
  • The HK movie scene is dying not because it abandoned its HK audiences but because it simply didn't adapt itself to wilder regional and global audiences. "People like to criticize him( Louis Koo) for filming mainland movies" That was/is another major problem. Would these same people criticize Louis if he had film American/Hollywood movies? Absolutely not, they would praised him and worshipped him. These HK people/movie industry sneered at mainland actors/directors/movies with their self-indulged superiority early on instead of hiring the best of the best from there to improve and infuse new idea and creativity into the HK movie scenes. And now, China have leap way ahead of HK in both music and films. "The golden years of the Hong Kong film industry spanned twenty years between the late 70’s to the mid 90’s" The golden years were not because HK films were great but simply because there weren't any competitions.
  • Based on the number of videos and the viewership, I dont think youtube could/will be an monetary avenue for her. Maybe with the low opportunity for acting now, she could use this time to improve her physical image instead.
  • @anon exactly. I haven't hear any of his songs or seen any of his acting but just by looked at his two pictures here I don't see any fitting/lead/important roles for him in any film/tv show/movies. He just doesn't stand out in any way, lack of characters/attitudes, bland face, and just dull looking. As such, I am will to bet he won't get anywhere in Japan either. Just checked his songs on youtube....bland, boring, below average.
  • @tomtom sometimes people trust the wrong friends
  • @tomtom Think the new IPhone came out and she just went mad in buying them to resell. She isn’t exactly getting businesswoman of the year. It isn’t really a business...
  • If your love one have been lying and cheating on you for 9 years then the only solution is clean break away and move on. Else, it would be just a relationship without trust or love.
  • Naive, insecure, immature and never really grew up from her teen years.
  • "In 2014, Mak Bau’s wife was cheated by a friend into investing approximately HK$4 million in a project which turned out to be a black market business for iPhones." For a 4 million investment and you didn't even go find out what the real business is about? weird.
  • @tomtom It's different for each YouTuber. It really depends on the number of ads. There's this YouTuber Shelby who posts videos about her daily lifestyles. She got about $3k-$5k USD for her 1 million views videos, while her friend who posts videos about tech/computer got over $40k+ USD, just for a single video. That's insane. A YouTuber with less views could make more money than another that has 1 million+ views. I'm not saying this particular actress could make that much, the $25k USD. But that's not like it's impossible considering the audience she has and the online yoga class. If her videos are long as well, that will make more money. Found the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pn23kNb2oUE It's actually interesting watching them compared how much they each earn. He usually has less views than her, but makes a lot too and even more for some videos.
  • @tomtom thanks for researching that. i wonder if they add on the sponsorships stemming from YT into that total. if so, then that would make sense.
  • Ok. I highly doubt she gets $200,000 HKD(about 25.8k USD) each month from youtube. Jan 9, 2020 report: "Using Forbes’s estimated pay rate of $5 per 1,000 views, a YouTube video with 1,000,000 views can make upwards of $5,000, which makes being a modern-day influencer a pretty lucrative job! " another source: "Her video titled, "This Is How Much YouTube Paid Me For My 1,000,000 Viewed Video (not clickbait)," which itself has 2.7 million views, made more than $7,000 in Google AdSense revenue, Church said." 林芊妤 gets about 2.2 million views per month total. So, 2.2 times 5,000 only give about $11000 per month. Which is still very good but not 25.8k per month.
  • "In fact, he has been working toward his future since young. " Ok. What is this future that he is working toward? "Still working hard to accomplish his goals, Jonathan expressed he is not looking to date" Ok. What are these goals that he wants to accomplish? Does he even know? Is he one of those "Jack of all trades, master of none" person?
  • "Instead, the 42-year-old actress finally announced that she has opened a new company." I hate to be blunt, but it won't be successfu because you don't have the managerial skills, the star power nor the money.
  • Well, that stream girl, 冯提莫, on bilibili is not as famous as Gillian Chung and Him Law is more famous than her....so. Never hurt to try!
