    1. Jackie Chan Splurges on Plane, but Fails to Support Daughter
  • jimmyszeto:
    @littlefish We don’t know the truth behind the Elaine story anyway. Maybe Jackie has paid her off in one lump sum or pays monthly. Maybe the relationship between the mother and father is so bad that they can’t agree to make arrangements for the child.

  • jimmyszeto:
    @msxie0714 I prefer Jackie because he has contributed to the industry more. At the end of the day we as viewers can only judge what they put on screen. Both are terrible family men but good to have as a friend.

  • 3. Huang Xiaoming Recalls His Lowest Moments: “It’s Like Even the Dogs Were Laughing At Me”
  • jimmyszeto:
    @littlefish I mean seriously ‘it’s even like the dogs were laughing at me’. He does know there are a lot of poor, homeless people living on the streets in terrible conditions right? Especially with him coming from China where there are a lot of rural areas and poverty.

  • msxie0714:
    @coralie agree completely with you. I liked him in early 2000s when he starred in Hanwu king. Un-fanned him as years passed when he dropped his girlfriend for AB, and especially when he shut down Shanghai traffic for that lavish wedding. It's not jealousy speaking here, but AB turned him into someone trying too hard to be cool and smooth. I think she knew he was a ticket to fame and riches in China due to his connections. Why else would a model with poor acting skills get so many starring roles.

    @theyenman frankly, the Miss HK contest is sexist and backward. Most of the contestants are from overseas where they should at least have more awareness about these issues instead of tolerating the body/face shaming they face in an 'advanced' HK society.

  • Passingby:
    Hmmmm ancient Chinese believed men with weak constitution or lacking in sexual prowess are more likely to father girls. Hence this is one of the reasons men prefer to have sons even in today's age. I remember reading that younger mothers are more likely to produce sons but don't recall that father's age has any contributing effect.

    I love JC when I was young, but he’s not a great human being :( You should always think of your children, doesn’t matter how shitty their mothers are! Knowing someone that does their duty of a father make me very very disappointed in JC :/

    @jimmyszeto you couldn’t say it any better! I had the same feeling reading the title then the article. While idm him in drama, his personality is a distaste, to the point where if I can I prefer not to watch any of his drama! And I might get backlash for saying this, but after reading whatever he needed to say, I feel like go buy those inflatable boxing doll, stuck his face on it and start hitting lol. Im not a violent person but this dude is seriously irritating lol, good motivation to get fit lawl!

  • garylau:
    What "illegitimate" ?. He made Elaine pregnant and bored him a daughter.. Etta is his daughter. It is as legitimate as himself. What is he trying to bluff ? If he continue to avoid his responsibility as a father, the day when he go, his name will stink. His history will be tarnished. What a loser.

    @windy What has this gotta do with trump? Or Weinstein? One thing for sure. jackie did not metoo elaine. She threw herself at him, she knew what she was doing. Maybe other girls. So far no one coming forward.

  • 13. Jackie Chan Splurges on Plane, but Fails to Support Daughter
  • funnlim:
    To be fair, she has her mom to blame. Whilst I do not believe she did not sign any iron clad settlement agreement, if she is truthful, then Etta can only blame her mom for not guaranteeing a trust fund. Jackie is under no legal obligation. Morally.. well.. I suppose he has more love for planes than his own flesh and blood. I mean he was never that much of a daddy to his son, more so an unwanted daughter. We can criticise jackie for not offering financial help, and he is as lousy as a father to his legitimate child like he is to his illegitimate child, since elaine took pains to emphasise she did not take a single cent, jackie need not pay a single cent. Etta should sue but i suppose HK law is same in commonwealth countries and a bastard father to an illegitimate child has no legal obligation. Bastard as he is. But maybe he did offer help? If not i wonder how elaine and etta can survive until now? Not that she has any career. P/s it's his money. he can leave it to anyone he wants. Is Jaycee getting any? If jaycee is not, more so etta. You want to see whether he treats etta fairly, see how he treats jaycee and compare.

    @bubbletea do the westerners who voted for Trump included European, Canadian, Australian or only American? I only know about Jackie Chan's daughter because I read this web. No entertainment/news in my country (I'm from Southeast Asia) ever published story about this so I will say that 99.99% people don't know about his action. However, they watch his movies since they are broadcasted on TV regularly and since he always played a kindhearted hero, he was synonym to his role. People in entertainment industry obviously know but what is the advantage for them to bring this matter out? Nothing. They might gossip about him secretly. But that is it. Who in Hollywood doesn't know about that abominable Harvey Weinstein? Did they do something? That Meryl Streep even called Weinstein as God. They also still worship Woody Allen and that child rapist Roman Polanski.

  • 15. Leon Lai Welcomes Birth of Daughter
  • llwy12:
    @m0m0 That’s what I was just going to say – Jacky has 2 daughters, with his eldest daughter Zoe turning 18 this year, so the other 3 Heavenly Kings definitely have a long ways to go in order to catch up, lol. So now the 4 Heavenly Kings are officially the 4 Heavenly FILs….it will be interesting to see if any of the other 3 will try for a son somewhere down the line – Aaron’s wife and Leon’s girlfriend are young still so probably will try to have more kids….Andy I doubt will push too hard for it due to Carol’s older age but of course hard to say….

  • 16. Leon Lai Welcomes Birth of Daughter
  • LittleFish:
    @m0m0 I don’t think it is to blame the mother? Since being a boy or girl is based on the dad’s gene. So if anything, it’s the blame on the dad for leaving it too late lawl. But then I’m more science minded than a lot of traditional asians who got no idea how gene works

  • bubbletea:
    @llwy12 yes, a lot more Asians have woken up to Jackie's disgusting character. Well, we all know that the celebs don't like to upset the apple cart, so to speak. They will be polite to Jackie but they know w uhh at he is really like. The newbies will say nothing cause they know he carries a lot of clout and can have them frozen out. The westerners lap up his good guy image and the Hollywood ce 'll ebs are just as bad, and some are worse than him, so they are cool with him. You know what they say about birds of a feather. That vapid, Kartrashian family is famous for what? I am sorry, but they are nothing but a bunch of riff raff, low life, trashy attention hogs. They are famous for all the wrong disgusting reasons, and the Americans loooove them. They are losers and their fans have a few chips missing. Famous for nothing except a few lard infused backsides that are more an eyesore than a turn on. Oh, how could I forget the infamous sex tape that started it all. I bet a lot of their fans are also Jackie chan fans. Of course, you should know I would tell off that delusional idiot, lol.

  • 19. Jackie Chan Splurges on Plane, but Fails to Support Daughter
  • llwy12:
    @bubbletea “Delusional” seems to have become one of my favorite words of late as well. Glad you told the “delusional” fool off, lol. ;-) With Westerners, I’m actually not too surprised, since Hollywood is teeming with celebrities similar to Jackie, some even with “rap sheets” worse than his (undoubtedly these are the same fools who worship the likes of the shallow, attention-seeking, dysfunctional Kardashian family). It’s those in the Asian community who still embrace Jackie wholeheartedly (albeit only a small group now, lol) -- including those in the HK entertainment industry – that baffles me. But then again, I guess it’s in-line with Asians generally being more reserved in that even if they hate someone, they are not going to come right out and say it….plus we all know HK celebrities don’t like to “rock the boat” so even if they are abhorred by Jackie’s behavior like most of us are, they are probably not going to say anything unfortunately….

  • 20. Carlos Chan Reflects on Tough Road to Stardom
  • bubbletea:
    @jimmyszeto you took the words out of my fingertips. What Carlos experienced is a real struggle. My respect for him has gone up some notches. He deserves all the good things that are coming his way, he paid his dues @IIwy12 as usual, very well said. I too commented on the unnecessary whining from Huang Xiaoming about trivial, petty things. I too was totally miffed at his pri Madonna attitude. Such a silly, entitled spoilt brat. A real struggle or crisis will kill him, for sure.

    @llwy12 I too have joined the club of not watching anything with this donkey. What you said to me is exactly what I told the idiot who worships Jerky Chan. You do know one of my favorite words is delusional, and that is how I addressed the fool. I told Dumb Dumbest that I can refer one of my work collegues to give them a checkup. Jealous of what.... You know, it just boggles my mind that westerners, and some Asians still cant see the nasty, indifferent piece of work, disguised as a human named Jacky Chan. Then again, if westerners can vote in Trump and defend him, anything is possible right?

  • 23. Jackie Chan Splurges on Plane, but Fails to Support Daughter
  • llwy12:
    @dramas4me I also stopped watching his works a long time ago and have even taken to forwarding through any programs he is in because seeing his face on the screen disgusts me so much. It’s astounding that so many people continue to worship him and confer the title of “big brother” on him when nothing he does or says is worthy of any respect whatsoever. @bubbletea Tell the person who claims that other Chinese celebs are jealous of Jackie that he/she is surely delusional and should probably have his/her brain checked by a doctor. Yea, I’m sure many celebrities are envious of Jackie being a certified a**hole and are tripping all over themselves to emulate such a sorry excuse for a human being, lol.

  • 24. Carlos Chan Reflects on Tough Road to Stardom
  • jimmyszeto:
    @llwy12 There are plenty who have been living off tiny base salaries and cheap bread in the past and currently now. Just need to look at the group of support actor/actresses that went to HKTV. There likes of Huang Xiaoming tries to gain sympathy because his ego is hurt from being criticised for crap at English and singing. There are actors earning pennies and treated like extras by crew and audiences but they have to grit their teeth and work on until one day they can be recognised enough to be criticised by viewers. Something that Huang Xiaoming thinks is the ‘end of the world’...

  • 25. Carlos Chan Reflects on Tough Road to Stardom
  • llwy12:
    @jimmyszeto I know, right? HXM should be ashamed of himself for “crying” about so-called struggles that weren’t really struggles. Makes my blood boil when I hear rich, arrogant actors like HXM “whining” about being criticized for their acting or singing or whatnot back in the day – who the hell cares? My sympathy is reserved for artists like Carlos and many many others who truly did have difficult paths to fame and had to struggle with “real” issues such as trying to put food on the table or keeping a roof over their heads or had to deal with a variety of health issues resulting from their work, or struggled with family or other circumstances, and now that they’ve overcome those struggles, are immensely grateful to those who once helped them, even if it was someone who did something as simple as paying for their meal or lending them clothes. These are the types of “tough road to stardom” stories that we want to hear, not the “I got laughed at for my poor English omg it’s the end of the world” kind….

  • 27. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • bubbletea:
    @coralie you do have some great points and I can, and will agree to what you said. I have met a lot of degreed donkeys in my time. I have also met a lot of folks who know a lot about stocks, bonds and can carry on a highly intelligent conversation with professionals and PhD professors, etc. However, that degree has become a staple nowadays and it is worth sacrificing for. In this day and age, most people who don't have one wish they did, cause they don't get the promotions, or the jobs of their heearts. A lot of parents are firmly encouraging their children to obtain a degree, especially if the parents did not habe onr. They tell the children, "I want you to achieve more out of lifr than me, so stidy hard and earn an education and and a degree." No it is not all there is to life, but having that degree opens doors that otherwise would be closed in one's face. I see your point too. Bill Gates did not finish college, and he can talk stocks and bonfs and many socail anf political topics with the best of them. So I hear you. While on the other hand, Donald Trump has degrees from Ivy League universities and is the most ignorant, dumbest jacka$$ for a president.

    it'd be actually surprising if he chooses to support his daughter instead given his track record. he must have some kind or terminate disease or mental illness if he does that.

  • 29. Leon Lai Welcomes Birth of Daughter
  • m0m0:
    that's too funny that they will be dubbed as the four heavenly father in laws. it's indeed very coincidental that they all ended up having daughters. it's be funny if they all just have one kid and call it quits. doesn' jacky cheung have two? i guess the other three would have to do some catch up work.

  • 30. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • coralie:
    @bubbletea I acknowledged that a degree is what you need to get your foot into any career nowadays, because that's the lowest expectation. The reason this became a discussion point to begin with is that there's this idea that just because someone didn't go to college, that they're not 'educated' and wouldn't know how to discuss advance subjects related to say, the financial markets. Well, sure, if you went to college to study finance, then of course you would be way more educated on that topic than say someone who studied biology or someone who never went to university at all. But that doesn't mean they can't be self-taught or that they're not educated on their own. That is an elitist mentality and disparages people without a diploma, as if they are less than those who have a degree. I can only say I've met a ton of [email protected]$$es in my life with a degree and also many that don't have a degree, so I don't buy the idea that you need a degree to be competent and knowledgeable. It builds a good foundation and gets your foot into the door, but otherwise, it doesn't measure your ability in real life. And honestly, you don't really need to have so many great qualities to finish college to get a degree. As long as you read/write/follow instructions/afford college, you can get that diploma. Where I'm from, colleges are everywhere. I admit maybe because of that, my views on obtaining a certificate is highly skewed. I think just about anyone can get it if they really want to, which really says nothing about the person except that they really want a degree (ok, some are in it purely for academic reasons, which is great. hats off to them. but most people go to college for a degree to make a living.)

  • 34. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • bubbletea:
    I am partisl to the comments of @hetieshou and those of @jimmyszeto. Yes,we can all work hard and change our career paths, but having a degree will help our employers make the decision to hire us in the first place. @coralie, you said you have a degree in nursing, but you changed your career path to something totally different. Well, I have news for you. If you think that having that degree did not help get you hired, think again. It showed your boss and others that you are smart, Intelligent and capable of obtaining an education and a degree. It is a large foot in the door, a solid foundation to start with, and it makes people respect you. I see many times that the people who have degrees get treated better, and get promoted more than those without, although the people without degrees are doing the same job, and well, I must say. Having the degree is not all, don't get me wrong. When you get the job, displaying team workability, the desire to work hard and improve, good, positive rapport with others, the ability to listen, help, honesty, showing respect, willing to work unsupervised on your own, all these fantastic work qualities help. However, if you have that degree, it makes you a gem of an employee.

Someone told me that the other Chinese celebs are jealous of Jackie. If that is so, they have nothing to be jealous about, and should not waste their time. Please disperse, please disperse, nothing to be jealous of here.

    @llwy12 omg, I forgot about the kid, you're right. when I watched him, I was like dang, this kid is a natural! when tvb usually cast children roles, they're usually pretty stiff and awkward. you can totally tell they're just reciting dialogue and not owning it. not this kid though! he's so good with his script that it feels like a regular child conversing with an adult. good casting this round, I must say.

    @llwy12 ditto for me! Love the hilarious parts as well as the sad parts of the drama. The 3 male leads have such great chemistry. Carlos is definitely a good fit for his role, same for Wayne and John. The little boy who plays Wayne's son is such a cutie and looks like a mini version of Him Law.

  • 41. Dating Scandal Was Not the Reason Why Fred Cheng Was Dropped from “Daddy Cool”
  • llwy12:
    @coralie I’ve been “catching up” with the series on the weekends as well. One of the things I’m enjoying quite a bit with this series is the subtle humor, which Carlos, Wayne, and John provide plenty of without even trying. I will admit that I cracked up so hard at the “Chung Ka Yan” and “Chung Chor Hung” thing -- that scene where Carlos is proudly explaining his rationale for choosing those 2 names while Wayne and John have this “WTH are you out of your mind” look on their faces yet they tell him to his face “oh yea, we love those names!”...hilarious scene! The banter between Wayne and John throughout the series has been fun to watch as well – seeing them try to one-up each other for the first few episodes and then now finally working together has been interesting. Also, no one has mentioned the kid who plays Wayne’s son (the child actor’s name is Marcus Lo and he’s been a regular in both TV series as well as movies since 2012) – he’s been a delight in the series so far even with the little screen time he has. Oh and the entire segment about Carlos finding his wife’s friend and then subsequently discovering the box with the letter – he nailed those emotional scenes so perfectly...I actually did get teary-eyed while watching those scenes, which is rare for me with TVB series nowadays. Carlos was definitely the perfect choice for the role – thank you Amy Wong for deciding to cast him instead of Fred!!

    @hetieshou I'm sorry to hear about what happened to you. No, I experienced the opposite of you. Actually Vietnamese people often prejudiced against people like me. It happened to my family and my friends also. Many of them are angry because of the history between China and Vietnam and we have nothing to do with it, so I think it's unfair for them to use it against us. There are good and bad people in every ethnicity and nationalities. The world will be a much nicer place if we all use that as our guideline and not judging people because where they came from, the color of their skin or someone else's actions.

    @funnlim @jimmyszeto @llwy12 - thanks guys. in one leisure weekend, I finished the rest of what I missed in one go. episode 12 was freaking funny - that dad/son pair is hilarious when they tried to fight their grandpa. this episode finally showed some synchronization between father/son and it seems the series is finally trending in a more positive direction. the plot turned the relationship into a less antagonizing position and i can enjoy it more. i can't say I'm in love with this show, because i still FF a lot of it, but it's nice to see our veterans strutting their acting chops while the newbies bring some heart.

    Haiz... HXM used to have so much potential. I was a fan way back when. But then something happened to him (too much botox? PS?), I don't know, but he doesn't look the same anymore. He's started to look swarmy/smug and arrogant and too much of an attention-seeker. I can't tell if it's his personality that changed or his looks. Unfortunately if a celebrity has the wrong look, it can repel a lot of people. The fact he married AB is also a major turn off. I feel a little bad here because AB didn't do anything to wager my antagonism - I only think she doesn't deserve the fame, fortune and opportunities that her face brought her, considering that she's not even that pretty! Together they are an infamous pair. The Kim & Kanye

    @bubbletea Well said and one of the factors in some people’s lives is luck which is what many do not have so must suffer and work from the bottom up. Many struggle for each meal, keep a roof over their head and must be frugal on each little thing but yet they still endure and work hard. But here he is whining about these petty things.

    @jimmyszeto I agree and some people just cannot feel even a little bit of pain in their life versus others who truly suffer. Sadly when anyone’s life is too good, even one little setback will make them cry like a baby. He and his wife are truly meant to be a couple. His wife is more annoying though, especially with trying to prove that she is natural when she truly is not. She must think we are all blind or stupid.

Not to say that true love cannot exist when the age gap is so big but it is very rare. I hope her daughters are ok with it and you are right, if they are more westernized then they may more likely accepting.

    @dramas4me Thanks for info about you. I know some Cantonese too but can understand it better than I can speak it. Who is prejudice against you? You mean the people in China? I wonder why Chinese are bias against Vietnamese and other southeast Asians? I find that sad how some Chinese have the superiority complex towards others? I guess it is similar to people from HK and Taiwan being bias against mainlanders. Very sad that you can even discriminate against your own ethnicity so why should we be shocked that they discriminate against other ethnicities. I have met some Chinese who think they are superior to Vietnamese. Most think I am mostly Chinese at first glance and seem like they are disappointed when I say I am Vietnamese with some Chinese ancestry. I actually just argued with this one racist Chinese girl on Quora. She looked down on Vietnamese and called me ugly and that I do not look Chinese( I actually posted my photo on there to respond to a question) because I would actually look pretty if I was Chinese. I was so insulted because you do not need to be or look Chinese to be pretty. Not all Chinese girls are pretty too. I hope I never run into another racist person like that.

    @msxie0714 Who said Americans are open minded when it comes to sexuality, and what does that have to do with this thread? If you think making a snide comment about Americans will offend me, I assure you it won't. I'm not even American. All I'm saying is, some people here seem to be offended by these photos, yet have no issues seeing women trot out on the stage in skimpier bikinis, advertising their three sizes. It's like selling meat at a meat market, yet I don't see any uproar over it. Every year, it's about who's "ugly" or who's "good looking" in stories about the next crop of Miss HK contestants. Heck, wasn't one of them praised for doing a stripper routine on a pole? How's that not sexual, and how are people not all in a huff about that?

    @jimmyszeto @funnlim They should’ve kept the original English title, as the current one doesn’t fit the series at all. In a recent interview, producer Amy Wong clarified that the Chinese title actually has special meaning, as do the personalities of some of the characters as well as some of the plot points. So far, I agree about not being sure where the series is headed (though watching previews and reading spoilers on the side does give some clues), but I do find the series refreshing, both in terms of cast and overall story. Personally, I was interested in watching this series because of Carlos and I’m happy to see that, so far, he hasn’t disappointed— in fact, he’s been the biggest highlight of the series! Wayne’s character isn’t likable, but for me, it’s refreshing to see him finally going back to his roots and playing bad guy / semi-bad guy characters, which he hadn’t really done since he became TV King so many years ago. John Gor’s acting is his usual excellent level so no complaints there. Joel too, he’s been doing great as well with the little screen time he has. On the female side, Elvina has been holding down the fort pretty well, while Rosina has been decent, though a bit unnatural with her acting...perhaps she is trying too hard with the Japanese thing. Pat Ha hasn’t had much screen time so far but I’m going to assume with Chris Lau finally entering the picture, her role will probably be more dominant in the second half. Both Helen Ma and Mary Hon have been excellent as well in their respective roles.

    @jimmyszeto I know, right? You said it right. Looks like he is an over the top drama personality, just like his wife. I too thought the lowest point of HXM's life was exactly like you described. His ebiz life has been very pampered and easy, despite the fact that he is no great talent. Other artists are struggling and can't get on the roster like he did. They struggle to pay bills, put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads. They also get depressed because they know they are talented and just cannot seem to get a break. Huang Xiaoming lives high off the hog while running on minimum talent. I have noticed that he says the most asinine things when he opens his mouth.

  • llwy12:
    @jjwong In a way, the critical success thing is true in Dickson’s case, as that rapist role was more well-known than all of his roles at TVB combined. There was quite a bit of buzz back then over Dickson’s portrayal (mostly because it was so convincing) and many later audiences (those who may not have seen him in TVB series from the late 80s/early 90s when he actually had more significant and better developed roles) only knew him by that role. TVB also started typecasting him in those types of roles after that. I remember Dickson saying in an interview a few years back that nowadays whenever someone has a breakthrough role as a rapist, the media always calls him up to ask his reaction (yup, that’s the silly HK media for you).

  • 69. Patricia Ha Burned by Young Lover Who Cheated Her Money
  • llwy12:
    @hetieshou Pat Ha was a movie actress back in the 1980s. She was never in TV series back then (at least not in HK -- aside from RTHK series, which technically don't count) -- last year is the first time she filmed TV series in HK (she filmed Daddy Cool for TVB and the Margaret and David sequel EX for ViuTV, in which she reunited with one of her former acting partners Anthony Wong). Pat's claim to fame was in the movie Nomad (烈火青春) in 1982 (she starred opposite Leslie Cheung, Cecilia Ip, and Kent Tong) -- she was only 17 years old at the time and that movie was her debut in the entertainment industry, yet it shot her to instant popularity, earning her a Best New Artist nomination at that year's HKFA. She later filmed a boatload of movies, including a few category III movies (there's one she filmed in the mid-80s opposite Alex Man that basically made her a household name at the time). She was invited to film movies and TV series in Taiwan in the mid-80s too and that's where she met her husband Huang Guanbo, who was a wealthy businessman at the time. It's not surprising that many current audiences don't remember her, since she retired from the industry back in 1989 after getting married and then emigrated to the U.S. shortly after. I'm not sure how old her daughters are but based on the math -- assuming she had her first daughter around the time she got married, then that daughter would be nearly 30 years old...her other daughters had to have been born not too many years apart, so probably in their 20s now. At 52 years old, Pat really isn't that old, so if she's dating men younger than her by 15 years (maybe even 20), that means the men are in their 30s -- in some cases perhaps not much older than her daughters...not sure how her daughters would feel about this, though if they were raised in the U.S., most likely they will be more accepting of it...

  • llwy12:
    @passingby Agreed that Carlos is a breath of fresh air. He's doing a great job in Daddy Cool right now -- too bad he doesn't have as many scenes compared to Wayne and John. Fred absolutely CANNOT take on this role because his acting is nowhere near Carlos' level. There are nuances to Carlos' acting that are more noticeable when you watch some of his other more recent works -- I really don't think Fred would be able to pull off Carlos' role because he doesn't have the emotional range that Carlos does. If you guys truly want a comparison point, watch Carlos' performance in the movie Happiness, where his role was VERY different from the one he does currently in Daddy Cool. Even though Kara was really the heart and soul of the movie (she did win another HKFA Best Actress for the role several years ago as anticipated), Carlos turned in an impressive performance as Ah Yuk -- the emotional range he was able to pull off with the role made it one of his most unforgettable performances in my book. This review of the movie in SCMP from 2 years ago sums up Carlos' character really well: http://www.scmp.com/culture/film-tv/article/2017063/film-review-happiness-kara-wai-carlos-chan-bond-one-best-hong-kong

    When I was a kid, I always thought "Category III" films were considered HK pornography.

Guess Asian culture is still pretty conservative when it comes to these things, but I pretty much think Cat III films aren't that big a deal. Of course, if you ask my parents though, they still think make such a big deal of it if someone's ever been in one.

    My misgivings on these pics is related to how hawt the preggo momma and papa looks! C’mon how is the rest of the world supposed to compare and compete with that? Impossible! Show us your stuff without all that PS and you’ll show us a normal pregnant momma! I understand why some celebrities bring their kids on reality shows. I get what they mean because sometimes as breadwinners, they have no time for family. They have to continue earning money to keep up their current lifestyle. So that means very little interaction with their little ones. Bringing them onto shows let them spend time together while earning money. I don’t consider this exploitation since that wasn’t the intention. If you look at Jordan Chan and his son, that’s a good example.

    @llwy12 Exactly! It irks me to no end when China alters what make us, us. Look how they eff up "Money King" in that movie with Jet Li and Jackie Chan. Or even in the Terra Cotta warriors in thevMummy. None of that remotely close to their original creativity. Yet they mixed it all up, pick and chose things that westerners slightly know and piece them all together INSTEAD of telling the story correctly, expand their knowledge in the original stories, and make them learn properly. Sad. On a somewhat related note, I like how Korean mandated their celebs from using or having English name / stage name. @hetieshou Isn't Xiao Bao means Little Treasure? So many that's why they chose Trinket??? I mean they can simply do Why Sew-Bow and use Sew-Bow throughout the novel. Or again, keep the pin yin. I mean how many had to do second or third look at Hermione, Daenerys, Arwen? By the way, how is HK or China treat copyright of YJ works?

  • 84. “The Legend of the Condor Heroes” Novels Get English Translation
  • llwy12:
    @jjwong I agree with you. The reason it bothers me so much is because I see it as a matter of respect for the culture. Sure, pin yin is daunting for Westerners but that doesn’t mean we should just change it to make it easier on others. Yes, English names are translated based on the way they sound, not based on meaning. So the name Jennifer would be 珍尼弗 (zhen ni fu) because those characters sound closest based on pronunciation. If you were to take those Chinese characters separately and translate them, 珍 means “treasure” or “precious”, 尼 means “Buddhist nun”, and 弗 is a formal way for saying “no” or “not”. So based on the Western translators’ logic, if I’m trying to translate an English work into Chinese for non-English speaking audience and I see the name 珍尼弗, is it ok for me to just translate her name as “Treasure” because it’s easier than having to use 3 characters and also less confusing? Or would “Jennifer” like to be called “Buddhist nun” or “Not” instead???

    @jjwong Celebrities are addicted to the limelight. They can't accept it when others are in the news and themselves are not. Taking these photos which are supposedly 'for a good memorable experience for the couple' but then they release it to public. What they want more than anything are comments of constant praise such as 'beautiful' and 'gorgeous' from people on social media which gives them enormous satisfaction. Ella Koon is also prolific at doing this. Minor celebrities who crave attention. Likecelebrities say they take their children to reality shows 'for bonding and experience of spending time with them'. Spending time with them is taking them to the local park. Not taking them onto a reality show to be potentially ridiculed and judged by viewers. We in the west also have many reality shows but at least we do not unethically exploit our children for money and limelight. There are few children who grow up and enjoy seeing past embarrassing actions or photos of themselves...

    @jimmyszeto I agree and many fields have skills that can overlap which would be good for people who want to change careers. The basic skills learned in school is what helps define us as a person which is why when you are educated, it shows versus someone who is not. It is not just the subject matter but the whole experience and the other skills that we acquire not just the subject matter. A degree is not just a piece of paper to get your foot in the door. It is sort of like how some say that a marriage certificate is just a piece of paper but it is much more than that. It is the meaning and significance behind it as well.

Yup, we put so much blood, sweat, heart, effort, endless nights of studying, pulling all nighters,etc... just to get our degree. I find it sad that some will disregard it as just a piece of paper. Physically that is what it is, but the hard work and effort that we put into it and what it represents is what’s important.

  • HeTieShou:
    @mi88 Exactly! She has nothing more to talk about besides Kevin. I feel as if she is exploiting him for every ounce of fame and attention that she can get. Sometimes it feels like she is a fan girl obsessing over her idol which may be kind of true. I heard back in the days when she did not enter the circle yet, she was a big fan of his and had a crush on him. Therefore, in a sense her dream of marrying her idol may come true which is rare but does happen. It is true that when you date it is normal to talk about your boyfriend/girlfriend but she overdoes it and never passes up the chance to talk about him as if her life revolves around him. I honestly do not find that healthy. Who does not get sick when filming even when still in HK. But for her she makes it seem like it is the biggest deal. Plus,she had her mom with her too. She still needs her mom to care for her? Oh dear... My late parents taught me something that I can never forget which is when a poor person spills their organs no one seems to care but when a rich person gets a tiny cut in their finger, it is the biggest deal. I sense that with Grace but I can be wrong. Honestly even if she was intelligent, careful or whatever, it does not mean she can be a good actress. I feel acting is a skill you can get better with time but it is also a skill where you either have it or you don’t. I have seen many act for many years and are still bad while some just act in just a few series and you immediately see how good they are. I have a feeling that her career in show biz will be short lived like Mandy Cho but I can be wrong. Time will tell.

However, people know their limits and they have other things in their life to talk about and concentrate on not just their boyfriend/girlfriend. In this case, she never spares any chance to talk about Kevin. I feel as if she is exploiting Kevin at every single chance she gets. I find that sad. Thanks for your sweet words and I am glad you are proud of your degree as you worked hard for it. I have no choice but must work hard to take care of myself plus others as I am an orphan now(I lost both my parents already). My late parents always taught me to take care of myself as they said there will be a day that they will both leave me. I have brothers but they have their own life and after they marry, they live their own life and care for their own family. Sadly some people take their parents and others for granted.

    I actually quite like HXM as a person. I do not think he is talentless, but he needs a lot of guidance from the directors and co-stars when he is in front of a camera to reign in his emotions. He does his best when he is playing subtle characters and I wish his manager would realise that and stop signing him in a string of stupid roles where he is let loose to overact. HXM tends to give me that the impression that he can be overconfident and he enjoys the attention, which opens him up to the spotlight as well as the criticism that comes with it.

    I think that really speaks to how bad a living for an artist back in those days where they had to make extra income from Cat 3 films. To me, making cat 3 films is just another job for them. It doesn't make them more cheap or less professional. In fact, many ex-Cat III artistes have great acting. But what bothers me is that how many artists were duped into starring in cat 3 films without being warned beforehand: David Siu, Lawrence Ng, Leslie Cheung, Moses Chan, etc.. It highlights how the underbelly of the industry preys on the unfamous artistes.

It turns out he felt so low due to some deserved criticism whilst he was still ‘leading all the biggest mainland productions’. He has had the smoothest and luckiest of careers and it rubs salts in wounds for most actors since they would give their right arm to have Huang Xiaoming’s lowest points. Now he is muttering this ‘I cant let anything happen to me because I have a family’ rubbish to display he is a great human being. Give me a break! You would think he was near death and taking life theatening risks with these pathetic comments. I’m sure we feel for him. He’s had a tough run.....

    @megamiaow I agree pin yin is daunting to Westerners. But I still think the characters lost a part of them by changing their names. To help Western readers, put a page of all the names in pin yin and their relationship in the back as reference. GoT has that since there are gazillion of characters and weird names too. It sucked that Asian culture lose part of the identities just to accommodate Western World. We should make them learn about it as is. My 2 cents. Isn't English stories translatiom to Chinese keep the English names pretty closely translated? Like using characters that are similar sounding to the English name but ended up with 2-3 weird Chinese characters ?

Grace had her mom with her and still she whined and complained. To anyone who is giving @hetieshou's comment shade, you need to know this. Grace whines and complains about everything. When the fans were saying her acting is very poor, and it is, Grace whined and lamented how she did her best and what do the fans expect from her. She behaved like the fans had done the worst things to her. She is a spoilt, motor mouth drama queen, plain and simple.

  • coralie:
    @jimmyszeto You don't need college for that. I can say, for sure, that everything I learned in college, I learned in high school (with exception to the actual core material for the nursing degree.) I guess it varies. My high school was an exam school in my city, so the discipline was vigorous and my studies were just as arduous and difficult as college was (as far as bureaucracy is concerned.) I know some people who are very well-rounded and capable of handling just about anyone, who have never had a college education. Of course, that greatly hindered their career options, so they went back to school to obtain that degree. But if you were to gauge these people without knowing this beforehand, you would've never known they not college-educated. I guess it depends on the person as well, which is where I will make that concession. The ones that maybe you come across without a degree might be unsavory characters. But the ones I've come across varies, with or without a degree. In general, yes, having a degree is best, not only for practical purposes (because what job will really hire you nowadays without that diploma), but also because it does build the foundation for your career. But the diploma only says you were taught information; it doesn't mean you retain that information. Neither does it mean you can fully utilize that information. Neither does it mean you know the stock market or how to invest. But there's always help available. If anyone has an interest in learning, they can get help with google, the library, etc. The diploma is a nice acknowledgment, but no one really needs that to be well-adjusted or be educated about stocks and whatnot.

    @hetieshou @coralie Your degree in nursing isn’t a good example because it is so niche.Some degrees are a lot broader and will prepare the individual with a lot more options. I agree that most jobs can be trained and knowledge is overrated but the ones who are are more likely to adjust to new jobs or industries are people with solid foundations built from a good education. People without the education will be more likely to get confused with simple learning tasks and lack the common sense. I have emphasized the important of a degree not because of the subject knowledge. The degree process are obstacles an individual have to overcome to develop the individual as a person. The developing of socialising skills, etiquette. punctuality, thinking processes, discipline, ethics etr.Not everyone are born with parents who are professionals that can teach this skills.I think @coralie has ignored these important aspects of the degree and focused more on the subject content therefore labelled it just as a piece of paper that can help you get an interview. It’s a lot more than that..

In 3 kingdoms I couldnt count the amount of people with surname Li or zhang I confused with each other. At the end of the day, a non English mainstream reader will look at pin ying and be intimated because it is not what they are used to looking at and pronouncing. I can see why they took this move, even if I agree that sometimes names really should be less silly.

  • coralie:
    @hetieshou @jimmyszeto - actually, similar to jimmyszeto, I've had a degree in the medical field that I'm no longer interested in. My degree was actually nursing and that's an extremely grueling major to get into and complete. However, because it has such a narrow focus, having it is practically useless when it comes to the real world (if you're not going to work in this industry). I'm now working in an entirely different field and didn't require my nursing degree to get my position (although like I stated before, having a degree just gets you into the door easier). I worked my way up from knowing nothing about my job to getting to a managerial-type position. Did I learn anything from obtaining my degree? Sure. But did it help with anything for my current position? Nada. What did help me was my perseverance and motivation to move up, along with increasing my working knowledge while on the job. So that's why I say a degree is a piece of paper that only helps you with your field. If you're doing something completely different outside of your degree, you can still use on-the-job knowledge, training & common sense to get where you need to go. not to mention, most jobs these days don't require dynamic knowledge (unless it's a very specific job.) people I know in their positions only utilize several tools to do their jobs optimally and those can be learned. it's why people get on-the-job training. and I'm talking about practically most general jobs in the corporate world.

    @hetieshou What is there to talk about besides her love life with Kevin Cheng? Would you rather the article to step on her and say that her acting is bad? I'm just saying that it's not her fault that she has to live in someone else's shadow. Love is blind. She can't just break up with Kevin just because she's unable to show her identity. I don't keep track of every moment of her, but I follow her Instagram and she doesn't really show as much affection for Kevin compared to the articles. Instead, she's more into baking and eating sweets. Besides, articles' purpose is to catch reader's attention. As for getting sick in China, it's not her fault either. Everybody's immune system is different. Hers could be weaker. I get that her answer sounds like she's whining since her mother was there and that she was still crying, but that doesn't mean that she has Princess Syndrome. Maybe this is her first time filming in China so it's a new experience for her. I think she was just trying to explain what happened and shared her feelings. It doesn't mean that she's whining. I don't know where her career path lies, but when she was known as the wealthy Grace Chan in the Miss HK Pageant, she was intelligent, careful, and smart. I really liked the precision she had in her pronunciations. This is her identity. If only she could work on her acting skills, she could really stand out.

    Fred has literally monopolised theme songs at TVB. Every theme song sounds the same and there is a danger that in the future there will be no classic theme songs to look back on for our recent years. Fred was the best singer in the contest but his voice is very weak compared to most of the established male singers. He does not have the physical appearance nor acting talent to be leading series either. If it wasn’t for his increase in popularity after the competition, he would still be rotting in the background of scenes with barely any lines.

Also, if people can see your face and you look mixed then you most likely are and if the look is prominent enough, then that foreign ancestor of yours is not as distant as you think. Vengo Gao is definitely mixed but my guess is he just does not know it. I bet if he did a DNA ancestry test, it would shock him as well. I can tell you I did some DNA tests recently and found out I am mixed quite a bit but except with Asian instead of any European blood. I actually had a very very distant Sardinian ancestor but he/ she is way too distant to have any affect on my looks and DNA.

He claims to be pure Han Chinese. Being from Heilongjiang in north China, he probably had a Russian ancestor way back.

I don't even want to think about it. I like to see women being independent. I pray Kevin do right by her and marry her, or she gonna go mental. 97% of her conversations is "kevin, kevin, kevin. Kevin this, kevin that". What about Grace the person, the woman, the individual, what Grace likes, outside of Kevin, haha. All I know about Grace is she cannot act and she Kevin-yaps all the time, and she is a media darling, cause she gives them all they want to know, and don't want to know, about Kevin, of course.

    @bubbletea I agree and not trying to be rude but I have noticed that every single article about her is about her talking about Kevin. I find it sad that she has to live in someone else’s shadow and be known because you are associated with someone else instead of being known for yourself and your own accomplishments. You actually sort of lose your own identity which is very sad. Also for her to get sick so easily from filming for only 10 days China. She was already whining and got sick on the second day. She had her mom with her too and was still whining?what about the many others who do not have their mom by their side? She sounds like she has princess syndrome. Maybe a career in show biz is not for her? This is a hard and difficult circle that you need to be able to work hard in and endure many hardships. Maybe she should just marry Kevin and retire. Plus, her acting is not good too so maybe retiring is a better option for her.

Her parents went to Shanghai or something so she was born there but then immigrated.

I'd say Kazakhstanians look closer to Chinese than the Uyghurs but you will notice that the central Asian people also look Turkish like with the long noses. They look mix, even their hair is reddish brown. I got to say they r a group of pretty darn looking people with the best features from oriental and westerns.

  • 186. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • jimmyszeto:
    @hetieshou @Coralie I can speak for myself that I studied Accounting and Finance at university but the industry I have moved into is totally unrelated to the degree. I didn’t enjoy the course but completed it anyway. Although the actual knowledge from studies I have slowly forgotten, what I have learnt through the university experience is invaluable. The mixing and cooperation with high calibre students, writing countless essays with research, meeting deadlines, planning revision, groupwork, student life etr trains us up to hardworking ethical characters which will set us for life. I have heard a lot of people similar to @coralie say ‘not all’ go to university but still become successful and not all backstabber, unethical workers are not educated. But the world is based on percentages and a much larger percentage with good education become successful compare to non educated. A much larger percentage are not ethical because they lack education. I know there are plenty of exceptions but we have to use maths. If a martial artist had a good master then he would be taught respect and be more ethical than ones without a master. We can say ‘not all do this and that’ for literally anything but that does not mean it’s a valid argument. There are plenty who have dismissed the importance of a degree that I’ve met. I can see their flaws but they can’t see their own flaws. They can’t see it because they haven’t been through the full education process so cannot value it’s importance. The ones that have dismissed the degree as unimportant are either they haven’t got a degree or they did not put enough attention to their studies during their time at university. Work experience is important but most people with a solid foundation can work themselves into a job. An uneducated will take a lot longer and may need to focus on socialising skills to hide their lack of knowledge. Saying Karena can still become an investment expert just because she is young is disrespectful to all the people who have studied years of finance to get to where they are. It’s not just a mere piece of paper.These people have put hours and hours of heart, blood, sweat and tears into their work. Hours upon hour of research, camping in the library writing essays/dissertations. Although there are exceptions, without the foundation you can give someone like Karena 100 years + and she may never be able to get to that level....

But their fantasy got shattered when images emerge of him and his alleged real 'girlfriend' (or maybe 'beard') on a vacation and let's just say his 'GF' doesn't match society's beauty standards ('coz she's really ugly as fnck tbh hahaha) that, I think, is when his fame started to go downhill.

  • HeTieShou:
    @coralie I totally agree with you that having an education does not mean you will not back stab and stuff. Yes kissing up skills help sadly. But some do not want to sink so low. Like I have mentioned those successful people are exceptions to the rest of us average citizens so using them as examples is not valid. How many people like them exist? Not many.... Once again, none of us said that experience is not important because it is but you need to have education as well. A good analogy would be someone who wants to learn martial arts. I used to wonder why they always made you carry buckets of water, chip wood, etc.. I then found out that it was to build your physical strength so you are strong enough physically to learn even the basic moves. I feel that is like education which is a foundation. If you do not have that foundation everything else may collapse. Of course not to stay you cannot be successful without an education but it will be a lot harder.

  • 197. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • HeTieShou:
    @coralie I do not think Jimmyszeto ever said that work experience is not important because it is. Honestly, I job hunted a lot and in my field, most of the job listings said you need at least a bachelors degree and I am sure they require that for a reason. Also, 1-2 years experience in some cases too. Therefore, the strongest candidates are ones who have both some experience and a degree/education. If someone has the experience and no degree many would frown on hiring them as well. Who said that you know everything after 4 years of undergrad studies? No one knows everything and none of us dismissed work experience.

  • 198. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • HeTieShou:
    @coralie I totally agree with you that working in the real world teaches you many things of course. However, I can tell you my education really helped set the foundation for my career and many other things. For example, I am very happy that I got my masters degree in my field because it helped open up my mind to many things that I never knew before. Same with my bachelors degree which helped me open up my mind and built a foundation for me. I find it sad that you are disregarding education like that. I wonder did you attend university? Just curious and I do not mean any offense in that question. You seem so anti education. Physically the degree is just a piece of paper but it is a powerful piece of paper that may make or break you in some cases. It is not true that most do not go towards an advance degree. It seems like a bachelors is not enough these days so many go for at least the masters(which was what I did) and a PhD. My 6th brother got his doctorate and in his field you cannot just jump into the job if you know what I mean. True that a degree does not guarantee success but at the same time, many of us need it in order to have a foundation and get our foot in the door in many cases. Unless we are Einstein, Edison and other special people who succeeded even with little education. However, they are exceptions to the rest of us.

  • 199. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • HeTieShou:
    @jimmyszeto Very well said and that was what I was trying to say. Of course, a degree does not guarantee success but helps you not only build the necessary skills in your field and those minor social skills and other disciplines that you would not have if you just blindly jumped into the workforce with nothing. The workforce can be an ugly world and you can easily bump into a lot of bad people which may in some cases delay these skills that you should have learned if you attended university beforehand.

    @jimmyszeto yes, Jacky's wife can be a difficult woman but, like you said, Jacky stood by her side, all these years. He never tried to mold her into a yes, quiet, subservient obedient woman. He accepted her and her negatives ways. That is called love, confidence and total acceptance. I could not have said the rest of what you said any better. Andy needs to let go a little on the showbiz reigns and promote younh up and coming singers and actors. As indifferent as Stephen Chow is, he does promote newbies and seasoned artists by giving them a chance. Wish Andy w o.j. uld be more open to step aside and do that, insteaf of deliberately hogging the limelight It would nvm e such a great gesture on his part.

  • 202. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • coralie:
    @jimmyszeto Those with good educational foundation won't be properly utilized if they lack the prerequisites of good socializing skills/experience. I've seen it many times - talented, educated people get ignored or dismissed in place of those who are better at buttering up the bosses. Even people with proper degrees can be backstabbing, disingenuous, and have terrible work ethic. Many well-established geniuses of past and present don't even need that fancy degree to accomplish what they did. That piece of paper formed some foundation, but it's meaningless without the experience behind it. Not to say it doesn't help to get in the door, but experience and social intelligence can be more useful than a piece of paper sometimes.

  • 203. Fugitive Arrested at Jacky Cheung’s Concert: “I Shouldn’t Have Come”
  • jimmyszeto:
    @bubbletea We all know Jacky Cheung is a living legend and is appreciated by all Chinese and Hong Kong people. I’m not sure about his character because he keeps a low profile and is a family. His wife I’ve heard is difficult to deal wity but he has stood by her and is a real man and father. I don’t think we can compare anyone as equal in singing ability in Hong Kong and I’m sure the singers themselves knows he can’t be surpassed. Let’s move on to Andy. I like his acting in the 1980’s though he was the weakest of the 5 Tigers in my opinion. Based on recent years he has really focused on himself and tried to not let anyone steal his limelight in any of his movies. He has not used his influence or power to promote new talented actor/actresses in his movies. As terrible a character Stephen Chow is, he has at least realised his sell by date as an actor and knows the stage belongs to the youngsters and have brought out new blood. Also all this secrecy of Andy mentioning actresses he has fancied in the past and letting rumours ride while he was married and his protectiveness of them is all seen in a positive light because his name is Andy Lau. He can do no wrong. Andy Lau is a control freak. I think he wants to write, script, produce, action design, sing the theme song, direct and act in every scene of his movies. I will be surprised if he will allow his wife and children to speak to anyone but himself.....

  • 204. Fugitive Arrested at Jacky Cheung’s Concert: “I Shouldn’t Have Come”

    @jjwong I know you will not like what I have to say, humbleness and Andy in the same sentence is like putting a cat and a dog in a room who hate each other. Andy is not known in the cirles as humble, but he is known as a control freak, a narcissist and vain. Even famous producers and directors have described his work as a singer and actor as mediocre. He can't really sing well, and his acting is not great either. However, Andy is good looking, enigmatic, charismatic and knows how to charm and draw in an audience. He is box office gold. Jackie can sing the hell out of any Andy song, and can do justice to any Andy movie or TV role. That is why Jacky is such a rare quality.That is why people like myself @IIwy12 @jimmyszeto appreciate the man so much. We know quality when we see and hear it. Recently, I travelled to another country to see Jacky perform. I will hardly do that for an artist, so that should speak volumes. I also have a keen eye and ear for good acting and singing. Yes, Andy is revered and he has millions of fans out there and he lives up to the image as a man who loves his fans and goes out of the way for his fans and friends and upcoming artists, but an image is a powerful thing, especially when displayed in an adoring, positive manner.

    @coralie In the working world we get to meet all kinds of people. Some with terrible work ethics who do the minimum, take sickness days for no reason, fake their ability or backstab. A lot of these have not had had a good education whether that is at home or they did not go to university. Different skills are developed at different stages of education life. Missing any stage can be critical. There are always exceptions and work experience is important. However there are plenty of jobs that give leniency because the workforce is so big that people with poor ability sneak through and do not get sacked and people with just good socialising skills advance very high. The initial foundation is the most important and will set them for life.

  • 206. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • coralie:
    @jimmyszeto All these skills should be learned from birth from your parents, environment, school/work, friends, etc. University might hone those skills more acutely, but work is really where you can't eff up. Because unlike schools, work doesn't grant you that leniency. Which corresponds with what you said. Education creates a foundation for our careers, which I've never contested. I've said that from the beginning. But it definitely doesn't mean we know everything just from 4 years of schooling. It gives us the privilege of forming the foundation for our work, but experience can't be dismissed either. In fact, many times over, people prefer hiring those with experience over those with a fancy degree.

  • 207. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • jimmyszeto:
    @coralie @hetieshou The degree may not guarantee success in the working world but it help build a solid foundation. Seemingly minor skills such as socialising with classmates, time keeping, meeting deadlines, discipline and ethics are developed at university. Although these can also be developed in the working world, the environment can be more harsh and these minor skills can be ignored.

    @hetieshou I will just say I agree to disagree. Working in the real world has taught me that education only gets you through the door; the rest is really up to a combo of street smarts and working knowledge. Unless the degree is advanced or geared towards a specific discipline, otherwise, the degree is at most a general education piece of paper. Most people in the US do not move towards an advance degree either unless it's promotion-dependent.

Two, some similar traits/aura on some characters. Snow/Kui Fong (in "dragon's 8 steps to heaven") are raised on the wrong side, fought/lived by "enemy" code, but in the end, they chose their adopted live over blood. Danny/the monk (same series) whom were quickly lookover at first but later became fierce and top talk. Imp/Benny Chan character where they're womenizser. Haha, I digressed. I still think they just eant to create buzz. Also GoT and LotR have large fan base to entice them to read YJ novels.

I find it sad that older men and women go after guys and girls who are soooo much younger. In many cases, it is not because of love but for money and other motives.

    @coralie I disagree that degrees mean nothing as I worked extremely hard for my degrees. My education helped open up my mind to many things that I would not have known if I did not endure those years of schooling. It depends on the person since some can go through years of school and know nothing while others do learn a lot. If degrees meant nothing then what is the point of spending years and years effort in school and not to mention money and getting in debt? In Karena’s case, her high profile relationship with Raymond truly gave others a pretty negative image of her. Just because anyone dates a rich guy does not mean you need to ask for this and that. For example, Andy Lau’s wife came from a well off family and her husband makes millions but yet she is simple, down to earth, thrifty with money,etc... of course people are going to say it is because she is not a celeb but who said celebs had to spend lavishly and be made up all the time?

    Here’s a link to an article in the New Yorker about the release of the English version. Weeding through all the “praise” for Holmwood and her translation, the part that most interested me was the update on Jin Yong’s current condition...I must admit I was a bit saddened to learn that Jin Yong can no longer walk, write or even talk much for that matter...I know he’s 94 years old already and perhaps that is to be expected with old age, but still.... (and this was 4 years ago...imagine how things must be now...). Excerpt from article: “Four years ago, I met Cha at the Shangri-La Hotel, which sits at the foot of the rain-forested mountain that dominates Hong Kong Island, for an interview about his literary legacy. Cha has been frail since suffering a stroke, in 1997; he is unable to walk or write, and speaks with difficulty, relying on a retinue: his third wife, his secretary, his publisher, a nurse, a personal assistant, and a rotating cast of protégés. The meeting, one aide told me, would likely be the last interview of Cha’s life. We had lunch in a private dining room, and he sat facing the door, the feng shui seat of honor. His voice, thick with home-town dialect, was weak and hoary, but he managed a few answers in a mix of Mandarin, Shanghainese, and Cantonese. (His English and French have left him.)” Link: https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/the-gripping-stories-and-political-allegories-of-chinas-best-selling-author?mbid=social_twitter

    @llwy12 maybe they mean in term of significance of the books to the readers? As all fantasy book fans know everything started off with TLOR, everything we know to do about fantasy stem from tokken’s work, all concepts and character and lores, think world of Warcraft, etc. But TLOR isn’t heavy on faction fightings, personal conflict, relationship entanglement, so that’s why they use GOT.

    I spent a year hunting down all the copies of the John Minford's Deer and the Cauldron - Book 2 and 3 are so abridged I don't think they are worth reading (spent over $100) about 8 years ago. I think the fan translations on http://wuxiasociety.com/translations/ are vastly superior to the Oxford "professional" translations especially if you would like pinyin or have some familiarity with the original stories. Check it out. I would never have known the pleasure of reading Gu Long and Huang Yi if not for these translations.

    @funnlim There is an English version of Duke of Mount Deer (but is published under the Deer and the Cauldron) by John Minford. I tried reading it in English and couldn't get past the first chapter. Certain words were literal translations but did not make sense at all.

  • 261. “The Legend of the Condor Heroes” Novels Get English Translation
  • llwy12:
    @funnlim I have the book too but also haven’t read it. I’ve been reading a lot of articles about the translation and it looks like the acceptance level of the novel is going to be extremely different depending on whether the person is already familiar with Jin Yong’s works or not. Having read his books in Chinese, I of course have issues with the way the names were translated – the part that irks me is the inconsistency – either use all pin yin names or use all English….here she combines both of them, sometimes in the same name, which makes the names sound super weird (I get why Holmwood did what she did with Huang Rong but instead of changing the name to Lotus, she could’ve just put a footnote explaining the significance for that particular scene). From Holmwood’s interview (the one she did in London at her book signing), it looks like she decided to prioritize Western readers who’ve never read Jin Yong before and make the book more palatable to them even if it meant sacrificing some authenticity and accuracy (of course, JY fans are going to take issue with this while Western readers are not going to know the difference). Also, to the article’s point...it’s interesting seeing the reactions from the Chinese community versus those in the West. Practically every review I’ve read of the book so far from those in the Western world have praised Holmwood’s translation to the skies while every review from the Chinese community (those who are actually familiar with Jin Yong’s works and/or have read the originals in Chinese) has been negative (so far)…. While on the one hand, I admire Holmwood’s effort in taking on such a daunting task of translating JY’s works into English (apparently she is doing the entire LOTCH trilogy and will release one book each year), it should go without saying that authenticity is important and if she wasn’t able to achieve that (or had no intention of achieving it), she shouldn’t have even attempted the translation. I also have a problem with the fact that Holmwood only studied Chinese for 3 years and only started becoming interested in Chinese culture while in college -- prior to that, she didn’t know a single word of Mandarin and knew nothing about Chinese culture, history, etc….sorry, but based on that, it’s kind of hard for me to not be skeptical about whether Holmwood is even qualified to translate such a classic piece of literature, especially one that is written in ancient Chinese (and no, just because she has a degree in Chinese studies doesn’t mean she is qualified – hey, I have a degree in Chinese studies too AND grew up immersed in the Chinese culture, PLUS I’m fluent in both Chinese and English, yet I wouldn’t dare consider translating Jin Yong’s works because I feel I’m nowhere near qualified). By the way, the publisher is marketing this book as a Chinese version of “Game of Thrones” while Western media is comparing it to “Lord of the Rings”. I haven’t read either book but know enough about both stories to say that, um, sorry but the Western press has it wrong (anyone who has actually read GOT and LOTR feel free to weigh in though...).

Using actual English names helps to identify what people, places and moves much more easily. Even though they sound a bit weird, at least readers can understand the story!

  • JJWong:
    @bubbletea @llwy12 @jimmyszeto Totally agree that Jacky deserves all the accolades he can get and awards quantity doesn't equate to talent, passion and such. Although I'm a bigger fan of Jacky and Andy, but Andy isn't any less of talented singer and actor than Jacky. Unlike Jacky, Andy focuses more on acting. Just like Jacky, Andy is a perfectionist when it comes to acting or his movies. I truly believe that he performed all his heart and wished nothing more than show his trade to his audiences even if that takes him being in 119 mins of a 120 mins movie, lol. Just as Jacky put all of his soul in his concerts, songs and albums. Can Andy sings all Jacky's songs well? No. Can Jacky performs and emotes all Andy's roles? No. They're both great at their crafts. Just as @llwy12 pointed out what Jacky said, he's not as a "good" actor because he chose not to put 100% of his heart into it. Andy has always been a humble guy as well. So really, they're both great and rare in my book :)

You throw someone green with heavy screentime but can't act; of course there will be backlash and people will complain how sucky they are. So instead invest in their artists, they just cut ties and put on back burner. How does that make sense? SMH. Wasn't Matt Yeung in similar situation? Promoted young with barely any experience, got drop off the radar, had to gain experience elsewhere, and then now back at TVB with better acting skills?

Their live adaption for Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast 99% resembled the cartoons. I feel or hoped the Mulan is closely adapted from its cartoon version too because I really liked Disney cartoon version, lol. I seemed to be the minority though because a lot of people, from comments I read on and off Jayne, have been 1) Shang better handsome, 2) awe at star power of the cast, and 3) Crystal is a wooden actress. I'm on #3 bandwagon too, but seeing the rest of the cast... they're not known to "emote" either... BTW, there are tweets confirmed that there will be NO Li Shang and NO singing. NO SINGING... wt eff :'( So this is more like a long distance remake of the huge bombed and utterly stupid Great Wall movie with Andy Lau and Matt Damon.

It's short and concise with one focus: serving for her father. Then along the way, she had personal growth and became/surpass the norm and the men. She wasn't doing out of love for a hunk, lol.

    Congrats to all the winners! Happy for Louis of course (though his win was pretty much a shoo-in) and super happy for Teresa, whose win is long overdue. Also ecstatic for Philip Keung, whose Best Supporting Actor win was the most heartwarming, in my opinion. I was kind of hoping that Tomorrow is Another Day would win in the Best Script (that movie has some of the best dialogue!) and Best New Director categories but I’m fine with the ones who did win. Ling Man Lung did win Best New Artist award though, which I was happy about because his performance in Tomorrow is Another Day was truly amazing (obviously that’s a movie I highly recommend but definitely have a box of Kleenex ready). One of my favorite moments from the ceremony was the Lifetime Achievement Award segment (Chor Yuen gave a great speech and his little grand-daughter was super cute!). In terms of acceptance speeches, I think Louis’ was one of the best, though Teresa’s was good as well. In terms of presentation speeches, Ronald Cheng and Tony Wu’s Best Supporting Actor speech was the funniest and of course, Anthony Wong’s speech was the most controversial as usual. Good to see that this year’s awards were pretty spread out in that most of the big movies got something and one movie didn’t sweep most of the awards.

    @m0m0 I updated the photos to zoom in more on the flaws. It was hard to seem them before if you didn't click to enlarge the photos. I was most shocked by Cheng Xiao's photo. In "Idol Producer", she looked like she had a flawless, porcelain complexion. But in this photo, her skin is not good and she wore too much foundation.

    @msxie0714 I agree with @littlefish. Sure, technology in the U.S. may be better or more advanced, but in China, it’s more ubiquitous, which is the point this article alluded to in terms of sophisticated surveillance technology being installed in common places such as a concert venue or on the street corner or other places that ordinary citizens frequent. In China, it’s a “normal” part of life to be constantly monitored and tracked because the citizens have no say so the government can do whatever it wants…but here in the U.S., you can bet that if the government tried to do the same thing China does so blatantly, there will be not only lawsuits left and right but also possibly a revolt. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the U.S. isn’t possibly doing it because most likely they are (I’m sure those who grew up here like I did are not THAT naïve), but they are going to keep it secret because of privacy laws (which there are none in China by the way). Also, having the technology to collect the data is one thing but what is done with that data is another and that’s one of the biggest differences between China and the U.S. in this area – China’s technology may not be as advanced, but they have no qualms about collecting the information and readily using it to achieve whatever end goal they want (not necessarily having to do with crime-related issues) and the person whose info they used just has to “grin and bear it” whereas in the U.S., because of the various laws surrounding privacy, whatever data is collected cannot be used outright without proper consent otherwise all hell is going to break loose.

  • 309. Fugitive Arrested at Jacky Cheung’s Concert: “I Shouldn’t Have Come”
  • llwy12:
    @jimmyszeto @bubbletea To be honest, I don’t like to use HK awards (whether in music, movies, or television) to determine an artist’s success because of the awareness of how the system works over there and how easy it is to rig / manipulate / skew the results (I don’t follow Taiwan’s awards as closely so not sure if Golden Horse or their other awards are similar). Just because an artist has a lot of awards doesn’t necessarily mean they are the best….the quality over quantity concept applies to awards as well…the most blatant example I can think of is Joey Yung – TVB (and the HK media to a certain extent) loves to boast the fact that Joey has won the JSG “Most Popular Female Singer” award more times than Anita Mui, thereby implying that she is somehow “better” than Anita because she won the award more times than her, but we all know that is far from true (and no, it’s not my assumption – I actually read this “assertion” in TVB Weekly a long time ago…yes, TVB was actually shameless enough to print it and yes I was outraged). Personally, I don’t remember how many awards Jacky has gotten (yes, probably hard to believe considering how big a fan I am) because to me, it’s not the number of awards that counts but the significance of the awards. For example, to me, the 2 World Music Awards that Jacky received back in 1995 and 1996 for top album sales are enough to crush whatever awards he ever received in HK…also, which other artist in HK (or in Asia for that matter) has achieved what Jacky was able to in the 90s in terms of being ranked #2 in the WORLD for selling the most albums, especially when you consider #1 at that time was Michael Jackson and #3 was Madonna (both huge international names of course). Sure, Andy may have the “most” awards collectively but how many of those awards are of real significance / quality?

    @jimmyszeto I don't mean to come off so aggressively - sorry about that. I do agree that for the most part, most people with a lower degree of education tend to be less informed about financial markets or worldly affairs. However, where I disagree with this is with celebrities. Their exposure to all kinds of people and businesses might actually make them more aware of the financial environment and culture they're living in. Lots of HK artists have branched into different businesses despite never having a finance degree, because of the experience they had dealing with the business side of entertainment.

    @coralie I didn’t say every single person in the world need an education to be able to able to move into financial investments. However, everything is based on probability and chances are low for someone without an education. Even if they are able to discuss world affairs and stock market it would likely not be very advanced material.

  • 313. Materialistic Love: Karena Ng Was Born for High Society
  • coralie:
    @jimmyszeto Degrees don't mean anything. They can get you to places quicker and easier, but doesn't mean those that have one knows everything or are educated about everything. All it says is that they spent 4 additional years of schooling to learn whatever for their field. Karena might not have a degree, but she had a career before that. Unfortunately, dating Raymond made it so that their relationship overshadowed her career. Her infamy will get her more jobs, so she still has time to display her talent and skills. She was doing okay in the movies before meeting Raymond. Not to mention, I know jack about the stock market. It's only recently that I started planning for my retirement funds and investing in stocks. Karena is years younger than me, so this idea that you need to be highly educated to discuss worldly affairs and stock exchange is silly. All you need is some interest in reading the news and some interest in making money and that's it.

  • 315. Untouched Photos of Celebrities Show Their Flaws
  • coralie:
    Some of these are kind of unfair comparisons. For example, I think GEM looks more mature in the photos because that's how she wants to be presented. She wants to look older so she can be taken seriously. Everyone know Hebe is short. There's no masking that. Jolin's cheeks in here do not look sunken; it even looks like it's just the shadow from her hair/makeup. I don't even know who Cheng Xiao is, but since they brought her up - ok, the makeup does look a little thick, but that could be the effect of the makeup and not necessarily because she wore like 9 layers of foundation. I'm sure all of us ladies at some point have worn poor foundation choices that seem to put a mask over us even when we only apply one layer. The only one that's possibly unnerving is the photo of Laure Shang, but that's because she's ghastly white and in stark contrast to her hair.

I have nothing against her, and I thought she handled a lot of things in a mature manner, but I am also open to face certain realities. When one is sel driven, and has a strong wok ethic, it does not always take degrees and fancy education to work hard and achieve financial security in life. Andy Lau is a good example. He dropped out of school at an early age because he went to work to help support his family. He doesn't have facy degrees and a grade 12 education. What he has is the ability to work hard and achieve for himself and that is an honorable character trait rghht there. He is now a billionaire. Sadly Karena will always be seen as an opportunistic gold digger.

    @bubbletea Very well said! Looks are not everything and Jimmy is not the most handsome guy either so he and his wife are not that far of a gap if you based it on looks. I have noticed that she is photogenic and looks better in photos. However, I have seen her in shows which is a more accurate depiction of how she would truly look. In my opinion, she looks pretty average but of course it is much more than looks. One of my former friends told me this and I sort of agree. She said that if you are a celeb known for your looks, you would not want to find someone better looking or else the spotlight would be taken away. Instead you would find someone below you in looks. She said that is one of the reasons why a celebrity couple who are equal in looks do not always last since they are 2 clashing egos going against each other. I think that may be true to some extent.

At the end of the day, he still has to live with the fact that his happy family life is a sham and his wife is a beard.

    @bubbletea True and I agree about the looks part. They should not attack her for her looks. I agree that love is love and looks and status should not matter. What he did to Ruby was very bad and yet some were praising him since they hate Ruby. Oh yes, I vaguely remember Andy saying that and it was wrong of him to do so but at the very least he apologized and did keep all of his promises after that. He suffered a lot of backlash while Jimmy was getting praises. I did not get that. I must say that Andy is always secretive so is staying that way somewhat while Jimmy and Wu Chun are gushing about it and going on those reality shows to flaunt their family life and earn money. At least Andy did not do that. I heard that Lin Chi Ling was mad about Jerry Yan doing that. Gosh all these guys care about is banking in the fans’ money and feelings. If they were so secretive before then stay that way but yet they flaunt and gush about their family and family life at every chance they get. I find that so hypocritical.

    @bubbletea To be fair, career and family go hand in hand. If you do not have a career how will you support the family? Things are easier said than done. Honestly, in Jacky’s case, we all know he is a great husband and father, however, you truly wonder if he would give up his career? Saying something is one thing but doing it is another thing. Unless he has plan B on how to continue to generate enough income to support his family. I think he is the primary bread winner since his wife no longer works if I remember correctly. I feel putting family first is one thing but career and family go hand in hand. However, of course no one should work to the point where they neglect their family completely but sadly in some cases you need to in order to support them financially, especially in a place like HK where everything is so incredibly expensive. I have seen people literally live in shoebox/coffin size apartments due to the lack of space in HK but the price to rent them is very expensive for the average citizen. Not trying to materialistic but just trying to be real.

    @hetieshou Jimmy should not have left Ruby to face the public alone like that and make her look like a liar. That is so wrong. Also, he turned around and did it again with his wife. I am not a fan, but it is hard when erratic fans have this stupid idea to attack a woman's looks because she married their idol. I believe also that if a man or a woman truly loves a partner, they can be average, even ugly, and can still get a gorgeous partner, who is not a celebrity, or who is not rich. I see it happening all the time. Maybe, it does not happen in Asia, but it happens in the West. Andy did say, "when I am ready to marry, I will let you, my fans know" .He already was married. He threatened to sue those who continued to say he was married. He was married. He kept bellowing, "I am not married!" He asked his fans if it is okay for him to have a girlfriend, said he was lonely. He was married. If his wife's father had not died, he would have kept it up. After being exposed, he said he will let them, the fans know when he is going to be a father. Eric Tsang had to tell him that he, Eric will tell the fans if Andy doesn't when Andy was dragging his heels on his promise to the fans. Wu Chun is another one who threatened legal action to anyone who prints he has a wife and child. He denied, denied. Then when the marriage and child came to light, all of a sudden, the hypocrite was all gushing about his little family and was doing reality TV shows with his son.The same son he claimed he did not want exposed to the public Wish these men wouldn't be so lying and deceptive to the fans. Li Chi Ling recently broke up with Jerry Yan because he pulled a Jimmy Lin and left her to face the relationship gossip alone.

I also find it equally sad(if it is true) that her mom encourages her to meet with rich people. It is good to build up your network and connections but it is truly sad if your only goal is to hope he hitched by someone rich. It is more important to work hard and build your own career and wealth rather than hoping that you can take someone else’s hard earned or inherited money and riches. What her mom taught her is the direct opposite to what my parents taught me.

  • 361. Jimmy Lin Talks About Fans Attacking Wife, Kelly Chen
  • HeTieShou:
    I think many fans were not accepting of Kelly not only because she is unknown but also due to the fact that Jimmy deceived them from the beginning. I used to be a very very big fan of Jimmy when I was a teenager and up to my early adulthood. I used to really look up to him until one day, he truly disappointed me. The way he announced and handled his love life was truly deceitful. Back then he used to date Ruby Lin but yet he denied it all along and made fans attack Ruby claiming that Ruby(who was not that popular at the time) was using him to get popular. He went crazy and said he wanted to yell at people and all that stuff for makin things up. Ruby had to basically push the cart all by herself for over 10 years until one day more than 10 years after they broke up, he finally said that he once dated Ruby and that he was the only girl whom he bought home to see his father. What the heck? Therefore, he then made a promise to the fans and everyone that once he has a girlfriend he will tell everyone. But he once again, deceived his fans. He not only hid his current wife but even lied after being caught with her many times in public. He then impregnated her, went to the US to have the kid and once again hides from his fans. Luckily, one fan or Asian person recognized him in the hospital in LA(yes he had anchor baby which I truly hate! They are not US citizens but want to reap all of the benefits of being one by going to LA to give birth. How sick!) Therefore, he had no choice but to drop a bombshell on his fans by saying that he is now a dad! What the heck? Many fans including me during that time were very disappointed and felt betrayed at how he can do these things, especially when he said he promised he would tell everyone. He even told his late father to lie about it too. That was truly despicable. Of course it is all the past now, but you have to admit everyone was very disappointed in him and his actions. But what I find more sad is you were so secretive but yet you are now flaunting your family at every chance you get. What is up with that? Are they trying to make up for all of the lies in the past? I know many were disappointed in Andy Lau and Wu Chun’s cases too. With Andy’s case, he never promised to share much about his love life in advance. He suffered a lot because of it as well and even apologized for it. But I found it strange that people were praising Jimmy for all he did? I did not understand that at all. Regarding the looks, Jimmy’s wife looks ok but he is not the most handsome guy either so I doubt he can get a very beautiful wife even if he wanted to. I used to think Jimmy was very handsome but not anymore, especially with all of the handsome actors from various countries these days, can he compare? He also does not look like he is in his 20s but about the 30s. But anyways, I just wanted to provide a bit of a background about why a number of fans just could not accept Kelly at first. It was not really because of her looks but due to Jimmy’s actions and behavior back then.

    This man is great, I like him. It is rare when an asian celeb puts family first. Heck, it is rare when Any asian puts family above work, as they are so hard working and career driven. He reminds me of Jacky Cheung. Jacky said he will give up his career for his family in a heartbeat if he has to. I believe he would. Stefan gives off the same vibes. Even looking at the photos, you can see the family-love between the parents and children, and the romantic chemistry between Stefan and Peggy. Not like some stiff, wooden photos of certain couples. Chinese do need to spend more time hugging and kissing loved ones and less time in the dark ages. We only have one life on earth with our loved ones, we should embrace and love them. I wish Stefan continued love and happiness with his family, health and all the best in his restaurant and acting.

U.S can’t do it outright everywhere because of privacy, China is like don’t care about privacy so their surveillance will be better lol. And they are catching up in term of technology, and even if their technology is worse than the US, so what?

Truth be told, if Andy did not have all the dancing and prop segments, the cabaret performances and fancy costumes worn by himself and his onstage performers and the wonderfully choreographed dance numbers and set pieces, his concerts would be just meh... He is mediocre at best as a singer/actor. He is very charasmatic and loved and revered by millions of fans though. His hard working ethic is second to none and he deseves kudos for that.

    @m0m0 you seem to have issues with the woman's looks. The rabid sheep also seem to have a problem with Kelly's looks. Do you realize how cheap, stupid, shallow, backward and ignorant your comments are coming across? You need to quit before you stick your foot any further in your mouth and really hurt yourself. So just because Jimmy Lin is an idol, he needs to go out there and look for a woman who has to be prettier than all the legions of lovesick fanbots? What gives the fanbots, or anyone the right to criticize his wife's looks. Only ignorant, backward women, with no life will find the time for such. Are they that delusional that they sit around dreaming of sharing Jimmy's life, money, bed and children? I guess so, no wonder they tear into his choice of wife. These idols will never pick such women as these brain sick fans. They need to get in touch with reality and leave his attractive wife alone. Jimmy is free to marry the woman he loves. It is so embarrassing and pathetic that this is 2018 and these Asians are stuck in this craphole mentality that an entertainment idol, or a rich businessman should choose a very pretty woman to be by his side. If Jimmy Lin had followed that narcissistic path, I would not have the respect for him that I do. He is a human, a rich, popular and idolized human, but a human, nonetheless. Time for these vapid, ignorant delusional fans to wake up. Wonder what they will say about Mike He's wife, as she looks simple and is no great beauty, by society's standards.

    @llwy12 not saying that haters are justified even if his wife was as ugly as a troll (not saying that she is). he's an idol so people expect that he'd get a very beautiful wife, at least prettier than most fan girls. it's just so that she looks so plain, people got something to say and even if she's pretty, there'd be haters too.

    @llwy12 sorry, I forgot about the HKFA. He has won a Golden Horse award or two though. To win that is to achieve the pinnacle of awards. That is equivalent to bagging an Oscar. Imagine what Jacky would have accomplished had he put equal emphasis on his acting. Leslie Cheung had that great all round gift as well. Tony Leung has it too but he has basically shelfed his singing. With all the hundreds or thousands of singer/actor in the Asian ebiz, only a very small handful really excel at a top level of singing and acting. Jacky Cheung belongs to that rare and elite small group. Can you think of anymore at such a level?

  • 407. Fugitive Arrested at Jacky Cheung’s Concert: “I Shouldn’t Have Come”
  • llwy12:
    @bubbletea Haha, thanks and well-said! Though technically not every award on the acting side, as that HKFA Best Actor award still eludes him despite 6 different nominations over the past 3 decades – but that precisely illustrates your point about Jacky being humble, as he has always said the reason he is not able to achieve more on the acting side (implying awards) is due to his own shortcomings, as he chose to focus on singing over acting. Whereas other artists may blame the establishment or the “rules” governing the awards game or other factors, he sees it as a very logical outcome based on his own career choice and therefore there is no one to blame but himself. And yet, he still puts 200% effort into every performance, whether singing or acting, and never wavers when it comes to how seriously he takes his work...just one of many examples: the album cover to Jacky’s latest Mandarin album “Wake Up Dreaming” (which came out 4 years ago) features him singing with microphone in hand while standing on a rocky platform with water splashing around him – most artists would film that type of cover in a studio with CG effects perhaps keyed onto the picture later….not Jacky though – he actually filmed that cover onsite at one of HK’s beaches, standing on real rocks with real water splashing around him while he sang a real song into the mike (the entire song in his real voice, no lip synching)…all this because he wanted his fans (and anyone who buys the album) to have an authentic experience (well, also because he’s a perfectionist in his own right and sets high standards for himself). I can’t think of a single artist who would go to that length to film an album cover, especially when he doesn’t have to, as everyone knows his album will sell well regardless. There are reasons why Jacky is so respected and revered by those within the industry as well as outside of it and that type of work ethic / attitude is definitely one of them!

    @llwy12 Sweeet!. I thought what the Jacky Cheung -loving fugitive said was priceless, but your comment takes the cake, haha. Seriously though, the man has excellent taste in listening to music and seeing a classic live performance. I hardly use such words to describe entertainers, but Jacky deserves all the accolades and then some. In all honesty, not many of the asian ebiz celebs are actor/singer at a very high level. In fact, they are okay at one talent, but horrible at the other. They are even mediocre at both, or simply bad at both. Jackie Cheung excels at both on an extremely high level. He has won every award there is to be won that matters in both the singing and acting awards events. Not a feat that many can boast of. The man is phenomenal. What makes me respect him though is his humbleness, his love for his family, his respect for his wife and everyone else and his appreciation for his fans without going overboard and coming across as fake. He knows he is loved, he knows he is handsome, famous, beyond wealthy, adored, even worshipped, but he is humble. A few of the idols can learn a thing or two from Jacky. That is the essence of Jacky Cheung

  • 412. Jimmy Lin Talks About Fans Attacking Wife, Kelly Chen
  • llwy12:
    @bubbletea Yea…that’s something I’ll never really understand either. Back in the old days, the industry was very big on “idol-path” versus “talent-path” singers (can apply to actors/actresses too but it was primarily singers that it was a big deal for) – the “idol-path” singers were those who got popular based primarily on their looks (whether they had talent or not wasn’t really important) while the “talent-path” singers were usually the ones who didn’t have the looks but had singing talent. Of course, the “idol-path” singers had a harder time maintaining relationships, since they had to keep up a certain image to satisfy the (usually majority) female fans who operated under the illusion that their idol would marry them someday…that illusion is pretty hard to break, even when the singer matures and perhaps no longer fits the “idol-path” model. So in this sense, with an artist like Jimmy obviously being an “idol-path” singer, it’s not surprising that those fans would attack his wife – it has nothing to do with HER looks at all…she can be beautiful or ugly, doesn’t matter…just by virtue of being their idol’s wife (and thereby shattering the illusion that their idol is theirs forever), that is enough to make her “most hated”…it’s stupid and silly for sure, but unfortunately there are plenty of those type of fans out there…

  • 413. Fugitive Arrested at Jacky Cheung’s Concert: “I Shouldn’t Have Come”

    @coralie @msxie0714 It makes sense actually. I read an article (and heard it on the radio too) the other day that said in recent years, China has been spending more money on internal security than they have on their military, so having cameras installed in all their concert venues is not surprising…..just like it’s not surprising for those who speak out against the government to find hired thugs in unmarked cars at their door hauling them away sometimes within minutes from when they opened their mouths. There’s also the “social credit system” that China is planning on implementing (parts of it are already in effect) where citizen’s online activity will be monitored and how they behave will affect things such as whether they are allowed to go on public buses or trains, whether their children will be able to attend expensive schools, whether they will be allowed to stay at 5 star hotels or travel, etc….if you do stuff like buy too many video games or post too much on social media, you will get a lower social credit score (because these types of actions are viewed as overindulging in “lazy and idle” activities) whereas if you buy diapers or use coupons to buy household items online then you will get a higher score (buying diapers means that you’re a responsible parent while using coupons means that you’re conscientious about finances). Yes, things like surveillance cameras and personal data being harvested is also being done in other countries (including here in the U.S., as the recent Facebook scandal proves), however not to the extent that China does it. When it comes to the “big brother is watching” game, China definitely takes the crown – no other country even comes close!

    @funnlim @kidd Definitely connections, but not necessarily boyfriends. Rumor has it that Jing Tian is from a "powerful" family in China (think government-related) and that is why she has been able to get the opportunities she has. The media has been commenting for a long time already on her "flaunting of tremendous wealth" that doesn't seem to be in-line with her income, as all of the films she was in bombed at the box office so it's not like she is a "highly sought after" actress bringing in millions of dollars each project (the government connections were "confirmed" in many people's eyes awhile back ago when some media outlets and discussion forums were "mysteriously forced" to remove topics discussing her background on their sites -- a very common China government tactic). Supposedly because of those connections, she has Dalian Wanda Group backing her, which explains why she is in all those Hollywood productions, since almost all of them have Legendary Pictures as one of the "executive producers" (Legendary is U.S./Hollywood-based production company owned by Wanda Group since 2016).

    @mangotango In Taiwan, it was probably with Alec (I didn't follow Taiwan entertainment as closely back then so can't vouch for this) but in HK it was Aaron because of their similar style (they both had similar haircut back then too, which was kind of funny). Of course, it wasn't Alan-Leslie type crazy out-of-hand rivalry (80s Cantopop fans will probably understand what I'm referring to), but people naturally compared Jimmy and Aaron because of the similarities (except in age, as Jimmy was 10 years younger than Aaron, but Aaron was baby-faced and had that "kiddie" haircut).

And I love her look, I love many other subpar at acting actresses because of their look, too. But LYF has not able to draw me to continue watching her. So you can’t say people don’t like her because they are jealous of her look.

  • JJWong:
    Don't understand all the hype and wishlist for a "matching" Li Shang and for a romantic storyline. Mulan is about respecting and accepting women as an equal. It's female sticking to the male dominance. Even in Disney version, there was no lovey-dovey. Only towards the end 1 min where Shang came to speak with Mulan as man and woman. It is probably one of the first Disney that are about love for family, country and brother-in-arms instead of romantic mess. So please don't change that...>_< It's very irritating that everything and everyone focuses on just one type of "love." *hops off soap box*

I don't think Donnie Yen is the love interest. Between them is the age of an adult child, so come on! There will be a Li Shang. Question is who? Donnie is probably the commander with Li Shang a step lower. Does Crystal have such a big fanbase??

  • 447. Donnie Yen Confirms Starring in Disney’s “Mulan”
  • davy:
    Can somebody please name at least 1 (I can't even find one) Chinese actress right now that is not "frozen face"? Nini is currently one of the only actress I bet didn't do plastic surgery that would've been a pretty good match for action film, but I doubt she have good skill in fighting. She might be suitable for modern boxing, and doing high kicks wearing black leather suits but I'm talking about more traditional-like kung fu (although not sure if Mulan disney will do that too). However, although she is natural she is also frozen face as well. I might just have a personal preference on Nini's face but then again, the skills, and it's not as if LYF is not pretty. Even the cartoon Mulan has a very good soft side too, she is very feminine on the outside and just have a very strong personality. Donnie Yen is a veteran actor, up to this day he is still natural, The cold face was for portraying his serious characters. He'd played playful characters in his younger days I don't think we need to disrespect his acting skills. With his age, should he go play like a young boy being giggly? Lol...We might not like him as a real person but he is very skillful to be fair. I'll say the fresh young meat boys today are all too pretty and concern about their soft skin and cannot even act with a correct cold face. They absolutely have no (esp. fighting) skills on top of that. Ok maybe it's unfair to comare them to fight like top notch Donnie and Jet Li, but can they at least please fight like a Fu Er Kang? Even Wallace Huo acting like a cold Shi Fu Bai Zi Hua annoyed me, I really don't understand why people are liking those kind of cold men: Yuwen Yue, Yue Hua, Yin Xue. etc. Liu Yifei is professional too, her skills match up with the roles she play. When she played Zhao Ling'er, she did not have a frozen face. All the hate actually came from her being way too beautiful. And, her character kept rejecting and dumping stinky punk Li Xiao Yao while he was shipped badly with Yueru. So her character was a bit problematic to some people, although the character was actually really reasonable and justful enough (Li Xiao Yao was the big flirt. And, why stick around when there's somebody so much better chasing him uninvitingly?). Her acting was really good, to be fair, so many actresses up to today still wish to have the same fairy gas they couldn't imitate sweet smiles, beautiful gaze, and the thoughtful and wise attitude. LYF only 2 dramas were good, lasted her eternal fame, but almost the films were pretty boring, the plot and scripts were just not creative. I only liked Forbidden Kingdom. But it's not like all movies these days are so good and hers were all bad, ALL movies today are very, very, very boring. So that is to say, it's the productions fault for being non creative. And she went for the movie route instead of dramas. But, same thing too, there was also no good dramas out there as well. Even CP3 was not as good as CP1 in my view, and CP5 was worse.

  • llwy12:
    @funnlim I haven’t gotten as far as you have but so far, I agree about Rosina – there is something unnatural about her acting and the hand-clasping thing is a bit too obviously fake in my opinion. Like I said earlier, she’s definitely the weakest link so far in terms of the acting and the only thing that sticks out after the first few episodes is her ability to speak Japanese and make it sound fluent….looks like the next couple episodes will be focused on her and Pat Ha’s storyline though so maybe she will have more chance to improve? John Chiang’s character is supposed to be hated though and so far, his performance has been spot-on. But yes, Carlos is really the one to watch in this series (at least so far) – unintentional, subtle humor is something that TVB rarely does nowadays (mostly because they’re not capable of doing it anymore), so to see it in this series in the form of Carlos’ character is definitely refreshing. I actually liked the Shanghainese dialect scenes, but probably because my mom is Shanghainese and sometimes speaks it at home so I have a good grasp of what they are saying without having to look at the subtitles. The scenes where they speak Japanese I’m ok with too (though of course I have to rely on the subtitles for those scenes). I didn’t feel as though the dialogue was excessively long in those scenes but that’s just me….

  • 462. Donnie Yen Confirms Starring in Disney’s “Mulan”
  • llwy12:
    @holiday Like I posted in one of the earlier articles from last year about this topic, the 3 criteria that the production team had in making their casting decision for the character of Mulan were: ability to speak English, martial arts skills, and “star quality.” There was no age requirement, at least not officially – most of the actresses who tried out for the role were actually over 20 years of age. I also don’t think that Crystal Liu is a good fit for the role, but like @jayne said, the decision was made mostly to satisfy the Mainland market. As for Donnie Yen – he’s a good choice in that he satisfies all the criteria and then some (though of course, the acting part is subjective – it sounds like they were looking more at the “star quality” piece in terms of popularity rather than acting skill). I’m curious as to who else they are going to cast. To be honest, I’m not a fan of Disney’s live film adaptations / remakes (nothing beats the animated classics in my opinion), but I do hope they will respect the culture and not try to whitewash the movie like Hollywood is notorious for doing.

Sorry I think he is too old for that role. Someone who can look 30s and manly IMO is more appropriate. Unless they take away the romance bit. I think.they are counting on Donnie's popularity to attract the western audience? It will be box office in China. Two big names.

    I found it very sweet when, last year, after a car accident that landed Jennifer in the hospital with an injury to her face, Carlos publicly declared that he will take care of her forever. I read another interview where Carlos said that Jennifer has a huge impact on him, as she has made him more grounded and he wants to start a family with her. They’re such a cute couple! As I said in the other threads, I feel like Carlos definitely has potential to become a star, since he has the looks as well as the talent, plus a good head on his shoulders. Looking forward to seeing more from him in the future. By the way, I kind of disagree with the article in that Carlos DOES have a career-defining role – in the movie Happiness from 2016 (opposite Kara Hui), which essentially put his name back on the map for HK audiences. He even said in other interviews that it is because of that movie being so well-received that he was able to get so many job opportunities the past year or so (including the invitation from TVB to film Daddy Cool).

  • 477. Gavin Gao Refused Bail; Evidence for Sexual Assault is Sufficient
  • llwy12:
    @mangotango Parts of the police report have been made public and it looks like the charges against Gavin Gao are those of being an “accessory” to sexual assault. It’s pretty clear from the report that Wang Jing is the one being accused of sexually assaulting the victim, though Gavin’s role is not as clearly spelled out (he was definitely there but whether he took part in the sex thing is not immediately clear). Also, part of the reason bail was denied (aside from the flight risk and also the Lili Chen thing) is because the testimony of the victim corroborates completely with the evidence they found in the hotel room (i.e. she described in detail what Wang Jing did to her, including trying to penetrate her while being pushed against a window – investigators later found blood and semen in that exact spot she described). From what came out in court, it looks there is no doubt that sexual relations took place, but the defense lawyers are going to try to argue that what took place was consensual and not forced (not surprised, as that’s always the argument in these types of cases). Either way they try to spin it, Gavin is definitely guilty merely by being present and not attempting to stop what was happening. He can profess his “innocence” all he wants by harping on the fact that he “didn’t touch” the woman but that’s not going to get him off the hook, especially when the crime was committed on foreign soil. I read that the victim is a Chinese-Australian woman who has been living in Australia for 10 years already and has a husband as well as young son. Apparently she’s part of the group shadowing the crew with filming due to her familiarity with Australia. Wang Jing supposedly is one of the producers of the series, which no doubt plays a role in why he was able to get the woman to go to his room. During the pre-trial hearing for Wang Jing (which took place right after Gavin Gao’s), the judge denied bail for him too on the grounds that they are afraid he is going to harass the woman if he were let out (apparently they have video footage of him acting aggressively toward her outside the hotel room the day of the assault). This Wang Jing dude sounds like a piece of work – feel sorry for those who had to work with him on that series….

  • llwy12:
    @wm2017 Carlos is a movie actor primarily but he’s definitely not a newbie, as he’s been acting for 12 years already (been in the industry for 15 years), albeit in mostly smaller roles. He hit it big in 2016 starring opposite Kara Hui in the award-winning movie Happiness (which was a really good movie by the way – highly recommend it!) – that’s what led TVB to approach him to participate in this series. Carlos has definitely been doing well in the series so far and hope he keeps the momentum going, as he has all the makings of becoming a future star – he’s good-looking and he can act as well as sing (he started in the industry after winning EEG’s singing contest)…he also has a good personality, gets along with his co-stars, and yes, he is definitely cute (lol)…definitely has a bright future if he plays his cards right…. As for the series itself – so far so good….not stellar of course but definitely watchable. I actually think Rosina is the weakest link in the series so far, though her performance isn’t bad, just pales in comparisons to everyone else, especially the veterans. One thing I found refreshing with the series is them incorporating other languages – like Elvina Kong speaking in Shanghainese when she’s at her mom and dad’s house and Rosina speaking Japanese with her dad (all authentic, no dubbing!) – with the world we live in today, a lot of households are diverse like that and people speak multiple languages at home so it’s good to see this series attempting to be realistic in that sense.

  • funnlim:
    just finished the latest episode and had a great laugh. Carlos Chan is indeed a gem in this series. He is absolutely on point with his 1940s sort of antics, speech, fashion and the way he walked. I laughed very hard when he looked at his son and grandson especially that scene where he visited his son in prison with his daughter in law and grandson except in the other guy's eyes he is like a vulture waiting to replace the old man in the young woman's heart! Very funny. But the first few episodes was horrible. I hated David Chiang's character, very disgusted but now not warming to him yet but I get his difficulties. Still trying to see what's the connection with the rich woman. Frankly am annoyed with Rosina Lam who slips in and out of her J-mode so to speak. Yes admirable about the japanese but her acting is so put on, it was when she was relaxed that she was better. Her entire okasan otosan stuff makes me cringe especially when she clapsed her hand tightly and she really reminded me of hirosue ryoko. I get hirosue ryoko is her reference point. I also hated those shanghainese dialect scene. Especially one where there was a long scene and it was annoying.

  • 482. “Daddy Cool” Scored High Ratings in Premiere Week

    @rainbow28 Very true, though technically Carlos has been in the industry for 15 years already and as an actor for 12 of those years, so definitely can’t be compared to the newbies at TVB currently who can’t act to save their lives. But yes, it IS refreshing to see Carlos on TVB again after a 10 year absence (his previous series with TVB – the only other one he filmed for them – was Dressage to Win from back in 2008)...and I agree that he is funny without meaning to be and so far, he’s been doing a great job with his role. The series itself so far isn’t stellar, but it’s definitely above TVB’s standards, plus the acting from the main cast is great – love the chemistry between Wayne and John Gor especially (btw, @jayne, his English name is actually John, not David – I remember in an interview a few years back, John Chiang had said that people always assumed his English name was David because of his Chinese name but his name is actually John…after awhile, he stopped responding to anyone who called him David because that’s not his name). I’ve watched the first 5 episodes and am interested enough to keep watching, though not to the point of “chasing” the series (haven’t watched this week’s episodes yet)….not sure if I’ll be able to hold on for 35 episodes though, especially when TVB series are known to drag on the longer they get…. Another thing I like is that producer Amy Wong is humble about the series’ “success” so far (29 points is high by today’s standards) and isn’t taking the arrogant, delusional approach that Lau Ka Ho did with HAG….makes me more willing to support her series…

    @mangotango if it’s menstruating blood, it wouldn’t be a damning evidence. And if because of the money disputes and frame them, it’s very easy to proof. The simplest and most obvious answer is usually the right one, they are not innocent I’m sorry

    @nori Me too..... I have always like Rosina Lam actually. I find her to be quite naturally pretty not sure if she's ever done any plastic surgery but I do like her. So far, series is pretty lighthearted funny. Never seem anything of the guy who came from 1945 but he seems cute and acts pretty natural as well. Seems like a newbie which I like as we see the same old faces over and over again too often from TVB. This is refreshing to me.

    @wm2017 you are funny, lol. You sure got that right, he ain't no Richard Gere, lol. If he was not Li Ka Shing's son, these women would not have given him a second glance.

    @bubbletea Plain jane? lol....haha I guess they think he's Richard Gere or something? If not for the money, why would women flock to him? They are all so young too esp that one that popped out 3 kids out of wedlock. Yes, they went for his face and heart I am sure. haha lol..........

    @bubbletea Do you think Karmen is in it for the money?

  • 498. Why Billionare Richard Li Loves “Plain Jane” Karmen Kwok
  • bubbletea:
    First of all, let me say I am not lashing out at the translator of this article, like some readers do. The writer is only translating. What is wrong with Karmen Kwok's look. I find her rather attractive. Put lots of makeup on her and she will be stunning. Take the makeup off Isabella Leong and she is average. The problem in Asia is this, when a man dates a celebrity, and then dates a lesser known woman, she is no match for the more well known celebrity, because the silly people see the celebrity as above the other woman in every way. Still stuck in centuries past. I must add though, none of us have a pure heart. That would make us equal to God and we are not. Karmen probably have good qualities that Richard find adorable. We do have to ask though... Is this about love, and not a mnemonic an trying to maintain his youth by dating a woman half his age? Is Karmen in it for love or money? If not, when she gets enough out of Richard to live a comfortable life, for life, it will be Goodbye, Richie Richard. He in the meantime, will move on to an even younger 'plain Jane'.

    @jayne Intriguing isn't it. We do not have all the facts so trying to piece the puzzles is a challenge. It seems Gavin told that he was forced to go into room according to rumours? My guess based on all these allegations and rumours... There were three of them. When assault started, Gavin stood by and did nothing or he went out of the room without doing anything or try to stop the assault. If WJ is a producer ie he funded the drama then I assume GG did not want to offend him. So he took the stand, 'see no evil do no evil". Culturally such attitudes is sadly prevalent among Asians. Not my problem attitude. If proven he was aware of the assault and not reported the incident, he would be implicated. If he had lie during interrogation, more trouble. Lill Chen is more likely to be broker. So the identity of the person who tries to bail Gavin is unknown. It does not make sense for GG's family to bail him through a broker. It is the responsibility of bailor to ensure GG does not run away. Hence the money itself is inadequate to convince them. It is not about the money.

    So far, I like the series. Rosina Lam and Carlos Chan pairing is refeshing. Hopefully, TVB won’t disappoint audience this time.
