• @windy I'm using Jenner as an example to show davy how stupid his line of thinking is. Somehow only Asian women are capable of having plastic surgery and looking different while wearing makeup but American women would somehow look natural. This line of thinking comes from the education they receive in the west that "it's not the same in the west as it is in the east", "we're not like that".
  • @ashtenmorgan Isabella had very though life since her childhood. Who wants to be poor or life in hardship? Once an opportunity presented itself, of course she's going to take it. And now she's set for life. Good for her and her family. You have a choice, you can take it or leave it. The choice she took will cause tongues to wag, that's unavoidable. I have distant uncle in late 60s who live together with a young pretty girl in beginning of 20. She is even younger than his three children. He bought her big house and car, they have maid at home, he also give her monthly shopping allowance outside of house allowance. Since my uncle is retired, he took her holidaying abroad monthly. They just returned from South Korea and will be going to Hongkong this November. The girl came from poor family and endured many hardship too. That won't change the fact that she's labeled gold digger and other names.
  • @snoopy She is 165 cm so she isn't petite (way above average height for Chinese girl even). She is tall and thin type. Too thin in the right pic. Result of diet and heavy workload probably. Majority of East Asian actresses/idols whose height range 160-170 weight 40 kg something which is below healthy
  • @jayj I think that in case of Kylie Jenner people mostly comment about her PS. Her before and after pics were so jarring that people who doesn't know will think that it's two different person.
  • @killers1 I work in finance and in my line I job I've met many people from housewife, shop owner, struggling employee to old money billionaire etc. None of them will retire and settle for life once they have millions. If that happen, we won't have Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet or Jack Ma anyway. Are humans ever satisfied with what they have? I think the answer majority of people is no. It's human nature. However we can use it positive way or negative way. In negative way, like you mention is those celeb/instagram show off who waste money for things they never need. In positive way, every discovery has been driven by human desire for more. More knowledge, more resources, a better life.
  • @mangotango In my country, being a doctor or surgeon means that you have high lucrative jobs. Being doctor isn't seen as a mean to help people anymore, for most doctor is just a profession to earn money. A famous obstetrician can even buy Ferrari from his earnings. Of course, there are still doctors who help people in need but they are minority now.
  • @windy years ago, Liu Xiaoqing- a big star of the 80s- was jailed a year for tax evasion. she slowly worked her way back into the public eye and continues to do dramas.
  • @m0m0 It depends on the official. But most likely I think they will through the route of staying low for a few months and then slowly staging her comeback. A few charity events here and there will help, donating to build schools etc. That new social ranking is created by government, so changing the rank is not a problem at all. A tale of redemption is much more interesting for global audience where she admit her sin, repent, vow not to repeat it and begin a new path.
  • @kmfayb I actually read somewhere that he didn't want to get divorce but finally agree to let her go to be free. He has married again, with daughter of some top executive and learned from his mistake, moving out from his parents house. Come on, in laws who don't like their daughter in law but living together in the same house is disaster waiting to happen. What's supposed to be home probably feel like prison. But the case also happen when common guy married billionaire heiress. Samsung granddaughter is said to kill herself in New York cause her father disagree with her boyfriend and instead plan to marry her to someone else.
  • @windy I had read about that a while ago. It is frustrating when these women give up their careers to be a loving full time wife, and mother only to be treated with such blatant disregard and disrespect. I agree with @janet72 that it is pitiful not to be able to see her own kids. How low can this Korean CEO go. He has stripped Go Hyun Jung of everything. I have seen the devastation that can happen to a woman after a breakup or divorce from a powerful, rich man, especially if the woman in question is not on the same power or money level as the man. He will reap what he sow. His day of reckoning will come. I bet all these other powerful cheaters and sexual harassers thought they would get away scotch free forever. His karma will come. Glad Brigette got out with enough money to look after herself and the children. She deserves every penny, even if she had to pay with him trampling her self worth and her ability to be a wife and a woman.
  • @kmfayb I agree. Have you ever read about South Korean actress Go Hyun Jung? She was married to vice chairman and CEO of Shinsegae Group and grandson of Samsung founder. The in laws looked down on her. After they got divorced, she lost complete custody of her two children. Up to now (15 years), she isn't allowed to see/meet them. Two years after the divorce, Shinsegae even passed down a ruling stating that none of its department stores would be allowed to display any Go-related material, including any of her product endorsements. As common people, marrying into billionaire family really isn't easy.
  • The only nominee from my country is badminton athlete who won gold medal on Asian Games 2018. Unfortunately jaynestars doesn't post about him in this article. They used picture of him during Asian Games match, so compared to other pictures here, it's the only natural pic without makeup, lightning, photoshop etc
  • While some idols are cute instead of macho/manly, being not be able to differentiate between male and female is ridiculous and way too exaggerating. As cute as they're, I never seen a pictures of idol that can make me mistake their gender.
  • @kmfayb There is a demand so there is a supply. The agencies as producers and fans as the customers. Idols are heavily manufactured products they sell to the masses. And since it works, well, they keep doing it. Boy idol groups are targeting girls while girls group are targeting boys fans. If those idol wannabe don't want to follow the rule of their agency (like no dating, no controversy, must have clean cut image) they can get lost. There are thousands replacement waiting. Few years ago, few people in Western countries had heard of K-pop. Then came Gangnam style and now idols is billion dollar business.
  • @windy good point there. I chuckled when I read your comment. FBB is not the only one doing the evasion thing. I smiled when you said the other big names must be worried now. There are so many of them involved in all kinds of corruption, from money laundering to tax evasion and God knows what else. Sometimes I want certain top 'gods' and 'goddesses' to get exposed, then I worry what it will do to their wordhippers. Fan Bingbings case is cotton candy compared to what they are up to.
  • @windy They wouldn’t be caught and go to jail. They would be caught and shot dead...
  • @hetieshou "if you ever get caught, you will suffer the consequences and regret it for the rest of your life." Sadly, this doesn't apply at all for corrupt officials in my country. Even after they're caught (hundreds of them every year), they will smile and wave as if they're A list star on red carpet. No one is feeling guilty. After they get out from jail, they're going back to become official again and enjoy their wealth.
  • I don't believe that FBB is the only one who evade tax in C entertainment world. If the accountant in her company can come with a way to do it, the other companies must think about it too. The other big names must be worried now for their turn. Or they will be hoping that FBB become the only scapegoat.
  • @windy you never heard of mahjong? Like... how could you never not heard of mahjong lol. Idk about SG but any HK family would know mahjong, and there are a lot of HK aboard lol. I’m not even a Chinese, but Vietnamese, and got taught how to play by a white guy who date a HK girl for 10yrs. Apparently mahjong is their pass time game. Anyway, dumpling is indeed more a Chinese thing, I notice a lot more dumpling making scenes in Chinese drama/movies than anywhere else. I don’t know the book, so maybe the family came from China? Just because it’s not common, doesn’t mean it couldn’t be true? Same with the mandarin speaking thing, either her family came from China, or that, as part of business, they have to speak mandarin so they just use it. And for simplicity sake, they would pick mandarin as there are more people speaking mandarin than one of the dialects. Remember this is a movie made for a wide audience, not just for SG. So maybe they pick the mandarin for the family and try to establish they are Chinese, and that’s why they need to do the dumpling scene. Also isn’t Michelle Yeoh Malay/SG? I have a few SG friends, and she sounds fine to me
