Christine Kuo’s Poor Cantonese Suffers Criticism
Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) is currently aggressively promoted by TVB, appearing in dramas Tiger Cubs < 飛虎> and Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭II>. Romantically linked with Kevin Cheng (苟芸慧) in recent weeks, Christine’s public profile has been increased dramatically. However, Christine’s acting performance has been met with mixed reviews.
Since watching Christine’s performance in Ghetto Justice 2, many viewers expressed that Christine’s Cantonese has not improved over the years, and some suggested her to find another Hong Kong boyfriend to practice her Cantonese with. Born in Taiwan and raised in Canada, Cantonese is not Christine’s first language. She revealed that she did not begin to study the language until she joined TVB in 2009, after winning the station’s Miss Chinese International Pageant. Christine said, “When you’re dating someone you usually expect to be with that person forever, and not because you want to practice Cantonese with him. I’ll rather chat with you guys (the media) for practice!”
Work Comes Before Love
Christine will portray a medical intern in TVB’s new drama, A Great Way to Care 2 <仁心解碼II>. Christine said she is very grateful for the opportunities the company has given her, “Every drama I have filmed thus far has a different challenge. At the moment, I’d say costume dramas are the most challenging, especially Beauty at War <金枝慾孽 (貳)>.” Christine also said that Ghetto Justice 2’s “Lynette” resembles her own personality the most.
With regards to her recent romantic rumors, Christine thanked the media for helping her increase her notability, “Thank you for writing such great reports about me! [The reports] have given me more job offers. Although there are misunderstandings, I believe time will prove to everyone as to how I really am as a person.”
Christine was asked if she sent birthday blessings to her rumored boyfriend, Kevin Cheng, who turned 43 years old on August 15th. The 29-year-old actress asserted, “I already wished him happy birthday this morning on Weibo.” Asked if Christine had Kevin’s phone number, she admitted, “I have a lot of my colleagues’ phone numbers.”
Christine said she is currently not interested in finding a significant other, “Right now, I will place all my efforts in my career.”
Since the broadcast of Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭2>, Christine’s popularity increased and more businesses are seeking out Christine to endorse their products.
