#7022596 [AF Editorial] MC Jin interview on asianfanatics. Uncensored, uncut, unpolished.

Posted by athlon on 12 December 2011 - 12:04 AM

When the series Lives Of Omission 潛行狙擊 aired, AsianFanatics got visited by an unexpected guest, namely the current hot newcomer (and the recent winner of the TVB Most Improved Newcomer 2011-award)McJin (Jin Au-Yeung)

Posted Image

Of course, AsianFanatics took the opportunity to conduct an interview with this rapper turned host turned actor. It took McJin awhile to answer back, (who can blame him, with all those new jobs his role as Yerng Lop Ching brought him?). But he finally squeezed some time to answer our questions.

So here it is. Unedited. For your uncensored reading pleasure:

Took me some time.. but here you go..


Questions about TV series / movies / acting career:

.> It sounds like you had alot of fun filming "Lives of Omission", the first 'official' TV series where you had a significant role. How was it like working with that particular cast (Laughing Gor, Bosco, Fala, Damian, etc.)? Did you feel more connected with the other newbies or with the veterans?



The entire experience was surreal even up to this moment where the film version is soon to be released. Cast wise, I truly believe that I was real lucky to be working alongside such a group for my first drama as there were definitely some truly experienced individuals to learn from. In regards to connection, it's interesting. Naturally, with the newbies (CIB group) we all got along since we were all relatively new, with me being the newest.

Even Mandy has several dramas completed. In regards to the veterans, I think they were all extremely professional and great figures to gain experience from. With Laughing, I think I was able to get the most in-depth advisory from as our roles of big brother/little brother required that type of interaction. It wasn't until I watched the entire series for a second time that I realized I had some pretty intense scenes with Madam Jo (Fala) as well and I think she did a great job. For sure, every single time I was on set with Damian it was super eye opening and rewarding.

.> What is your take on the character that you play in the series, Yeung Lap Ching? Did you feel it was difficult to portray this character? If so, why?


I really really want to thank the producer and script writers for creating such an amazing character and allowing me the opportunity to deliver this performance. The fact that they named him Lap Ching, which is a breakdown of my actual Chinese name, in order to explain the tattoo on my neck is something I am truly amazed by.

I think that was a great scene, where Lap Ching gets expelled from the academy and the instructor reprimands him for getting a tattoo after being accepted. This is such a great way to early on indicate what a rebellious and self absorbed individual he is. As far as challenges in portraying the character, once again, I thank the writers for creating him with such a clear direction. Lap Ching's agenda is simple and plain: Follow and support Laughing Sir no matter what circumstances arise. His loyalty defines him.

.> During the filming of “Lives of Omission”, were there any funny situations / stories that occurred that you can tell us about?


Lots of great experiences and memories thru out the whole filming process for sure. I think one funny thing was early on, once everyone got comfortable of course, I would be on set and start doing these random rhymes (in Cantonese) about characters being killed in the drama's storyline. Everyone on the set would laugh.. including Laughing.. and eventually he would join in and come up with these random rhymes.


.> You’ve had some success in acting so far, as the feedback regarding your roles in “The Gallants” and “Lives of Omission” have been largely positive. Was acting a direction that you’ve always wanted to try? Or was it something that you went into by chance?



Well, some readers may know that my true first foray into acting was about 7 years ago in a little film called 2 Fast 2 Furious. Now that was truly a surreal experience. I was about 2 years or so into my Ruff Ryders career and here comes an opportunity to be a part of a super successful franchise film.

As much I was able to learn about film making thru that project, especially on a Hollywood scale, I think that was really a small taste of what the acting world really involves. I played a mechanic, who raps. You get my point. Quite frankly, after 2F2F, I didn't really do much more acting because the opportunities just didn't present itself. Between Gallants and LOO, I definitely see that acting is something I want to continue to explore and develop in.


.> You are given the opportunity to create/design a character for yourself to portray (whether in a TV series or in a movie). What would the character be like? How would this character be similar/different from the real MC Jin?


I think any actor would want to approach a role that they find challenging and as far removed from who they really might be as possible... or maybe the opposite, someone who is exactly identical to their true self. In either case, I'd love to attempt a break thru role that would really require me to push the envelope.

.> On the subject of TV series, there are obviously many fans of TVB drama series overseas (outside of HK). Unfortunately, many of those who reside overseas don’t get the same opportunity to watch the series on TV at the same time that most Hong Kongers do, which perhaps contributes (in part) to the rise in downloading of the series on the internet. How do you feel about this?



You can't fight technology. I totally understand the point you are making with internet viewership, however.. With LOO, it's my first time seeing how TVB in households outside of Hong Kong is actually on the rise. For example, my wife and all my family back in New York were actually watching the series simultaneously as it was aired in Hong Kong, with a time zone difference of course.


Questions about Music career:

.> In terms of your music, you've been quite successful the past 2-3 years especially in bringing your signature rap / hip hop style music into the HK Cantopop world and giving the sagging HK music industry a much needed 'boost'. What are your thoughts on this? What motivated you to move to HK and launch a career there?



I wouldn't dare say I gave anything a boost. If anything, I've just been lucky to do something I love with a positive reception for the most part. One of the biggest misconceptions is that I moved to Hong Kong to launch a career.. I'm telling you, never did I imagine what I've been able to experience in the past 3 years actually happening. When I landed in Hong Kong on 6/10/08.. It was with the mindset of "Okay, I'll do some promotion for this ABC album.. At most a few months.. and if things don't seem to be working out.. New York, here I come!" Who would've thought so many doors would continuously open up one after another? God has been more than kind to me.

.> What are your thoughts on being named by Time Out Magazine as one of the “Changing Faces of Cantopop” (along with 3 other HK artists – Khalil Fong, Denise Ho, and the group Rubberband)? Do you agree? Also, any thoughts on the other 3 artists named?


The other 3 parties involved in that article are all beyond my stature quite honestly. As far as musicians and talent go. That's just my humble perspective.. It's an honor to be included in such a conversation. Once again, I just do what I love and love what I do. For it to be embraced is very encouraging and inspiring.


.> Your music when you were in the U.S. tended to focus on your experiences as an Asian American. After you moved your career to HK, how were you able to make your music relevant to an HK audience, especially given the different cultures? Did you have to make some significant changes in order to accommodate the HK audience?


My music has always been a reflection of my own thoughts and experiences. This holds true in my English and Cantonese material. This means the move to Hong Kong didn't really affect that creative process much. The only difference is the language. Of course, my command of the Cantonese language is limited so it may not compare to what I may be able to express in English. The beauty in my eyes is that there's times when I feel like Cantonese can best describe what I want to express as well as times when I can only say what I want to say in English.


.> When you are invited to appear in shows or at events, it’s almost inevitable that you’re asked to do some type of rap sequence at some point. Do you have to come up with these rap sequences by yourself ‘on the fly’ or is it actually scripted? Do you feel that you’ve been typecasted into the role of “that rapping dude” and thereby had limitations placed on your singing career?


For the record. I don't sing. Not in the traditional sense. Brian McKnight. Jacky Cheung. Mary J. Blige. Those are singers. In regards to the high demand that I always incorporate a bit of rap into whatever appearance I may be attending, it's understandable and the circumstances are never the same. Sometimes it's on the fly, sometimes it can be previously planned and scripted. Whatever the situation calls for.. As long as I'm comfortable with it.


Questions about Future projects / personal questions / other general questions:

.> Since you were born and raised in the U.S., how did you learn Cantonese growing up? As a non-native speaker of Cantonese, how do you cope with the language issue, especially now that you’ve expanded your career into movies and television (and thereby having to deal with scripts written completely in Chinese)?



I didn't learn Cantonese. It was spoken in my household growing up.. so I spoke it. It definitely helped that I was really into TVB (and HK films) at a young age so I picked up lots of what I know today from years of watching these films and dramas. Too late to regret it now.. but I definitely wished I learned how to read and write it as well as a child. It would save a lot of time in Hong Kong that I spend translating and writing Pin Yin.


.> Having experienced both the American and Chinese entertainment industries, what is the biggest difference between the two, in your opinion? In terms of logistics, having lived in the U.S. as well as HK (both places seem to have a different pace and lifestyle), how are the two places different for you? Was it difficult adjusting to life in HK?


The biggest difference to me.. is that Hong Kong is rather small. As a city and naturally as an entertainment circle. This is not necessarily a negative. It just creates an environment where it can feel kind of condensed at times. You go the events and its the same artists.. same media.. etc. From a business and creative standpoint, this can naturally restrict any type of growth or expansion.


.> Besides your music career, you’ve also had quite a comprehensive experience in HK so far, as you’ve had opportunities to host variety shows, film movies as well as participate in TV series. Which of these ‘roles’ (singer, host, movie actor, television actor) do you like best? With such a multi-faceted career, what were some of the biggest challenges you faced? Are you planning on continuing down this ‘singer/host/actor’ path in the near future or will you be focusing more on one over the other?



It's definitely been an experience of new experiences. There's definitely a newfound passion and love for acting. With this also comes the realization that a big part of pursuing an acting career really boils down to opportunities. Film acting is definitely different from television dramas. There's a new challenge in both and I'm looking forward to exploring all aspects. Music wise, one of the biggest things I'm looking forward to for 2012 is releasing a new English album. It's actually been about 6 years since I've released an English project.


.> Who do you feel has been the biggest influence for you in terms of your career so far (in singing as well as acting)? Is there anyone in particular whom you’d like to thank? Are there any other artists whom you are particularly close friends with?


If I had to thank someone, it would be the supporters and anyone who's encouraged me in any way shape or form these past 10 years.


.> With the multi-faceted nature of your career, you probably don’t have a whole lot of free time compared to other artists. On the occasions when you do have some free time, what do you enjoying doing most?


If I could, I would spend more time with my wife and family. There's a challenge in that of course being that they're all in NY while I am in HK. Besides that, I'm relatively low key. Reading. Basketball...


.> The entertainment industry is known for being a ‘pressure cooker’ type environment. Have you encountered any particularly stressful situation that you’d like to share with us? In general, how do you deal with all the stress that ‘comes with the territory’ of being a celebrity?


Here's my head on way of dealing with what you are referring to. I don't allow myself to become a celebrity. Without a doubt, there's a certain element of pressure that comes with being a public figure.. Especially in the entertainment field. However, whatever changed perception that the public may have, this doesn't need to affect ones own state of mind. More importantly, I put God first.


.> In the few years that you’ve been in the HK entertainment industry, you’ve become quite recognizable. In fact, you seem to be everywhere in HK – on billboards, in TV commercials, on variety shows, etc. How do you feel about your ‘ubiquitous’ presence in HK?


Recently, more than ever, I've developed a whole new grasp of what gratitude is. Maybe it's because before I came to Hong Kong, my experience in the business has been filled with it's fair share of ups and downs. This definitely reinforces my mentality of "what is here today may not necessarily be here tomorrow", so I must treasure every opportunity and learn to let go.


.> Over the years, the U.S. entertainment industry (aka Hollywood) has seen some growth in terms of the presence of Asians / Asian Americans in the industry (whether in music, movies, or television). What are your thoughts about opportunities for Asians / Asian Americans in the U.S. entertainment industry?



Any opportunity is a great opportunity! I'm all for progression and advancement, Asian or not.


.> What are your thoughts on your latest album HomeComing?



HomeComing is special to on a very personal level because it is pretty much an audio documentary of my last 3 years in Hong Kong. If I had to describe the overall project in one word it would be: growth. It is definitely a big step ahead from the ABC album in all aspects.. from my usage of Cantonese to the content.


To end this interview: are you a cats person or a dogs person?


I was born in '82. Year of the dog. That says it all.

God bless you,
Jin

#6948046 One Day After Grandmotherís Funeral, Raymond Lam Went Clubbing and Hungrily K...

Posted by donkeykong on 19 July 2011 - 08:56 AM

So Raymond flees the scene and let's his friend threaten a female reporter??

Didn't his grandma die like a week ago? And doesn't he have a 'busy' schedule... rehearsals for his concert etc? And didn't he hurt his leg rehearsing? He has time, strength and mood to party til 5am. Also related and not in the above translation, the same night that Raymond were in the club, he was snogging up with Kibby Lau 劉俐 (she was 'Blueberry' in Beautiful Cooking - the tallest one) and sneaked out the back door one after another. Kissing, holding hands, dirty dancing - you get the jitz ...not sure if they continued 'partying' at his place privately afterwards though .. most likely. both happy happy. Many RL fans gonna start crying again........ =/

[Full Article here:http://et.21cn.com/star/zhuixing/gangtai/2011/07/19/8651199.shtml]

Can't help but notice that she looks a LOT like Mavis Pan - Raymond's ex-gf. >.<
Long hair, big boobies and hot

Anyone want to bet on whether this is a casual one night stand relationship or something 'serious'?

Above Gif Credits: labio @ AF


Tavia suffered from an inflammation in the lower back leading to an irregular curvature in her spine. Tavia has a tendency to suffer from problems in air pipes and also has an imbalance of fluid in her ears.

Tavia tends to playfully hit people, and most are accustomed to it. Tavia also likes to make play on words from time to time.

Humble, but doesn't lack self-confidence.



The most vulnerable part of Tav is often revealed when her family is forcibly tied in with her career. Such as, the ordeal she had to go through after her father's death, her break-down in an interview when she was suddenly handed a long-sought childhood, hand-made, plushy doll made from her sister; her opening of a crafts store to support what her mother/sister loves doing. She realizes the importance of ambitions, dreams to a person so she does the best to her abilities to let them always enjoy what they love doing.

#7287729 Kenneth Ma & Tavia Yeung Part 2

Posted by chency on 28 November 2013 - 05:31 AM

Here comes the translation!

Ma Guo Ming said, “My mom loves Yeung Yi to the extent that she pretended to visit me when filming but actually she just wanted to see Ah-Yi.”
Yeung Yi said, “For BA contest, no matter what I will definitely vote for Ma Guo Ming.”
Ma Guo Ming said, “Collaborating with Ah-Yi makes me very happy, even just able to stare at her already makes me very happy …don’t say I say this, so long she’s not married….”
Yeung Yi, “Hey you crazy.”
(You aren’t interested in this hot property Ma Guo Ming , we all know the reasons.)
YKT and YZ, in OC 36 hours as a married couple; Ma Guo Ming and Yeung Yi, in reality is an extremely good friend. Below is their dialogue, basically both just chatted non-stop (without reporters asking much questions to lead them).

From lovers to husband-wife
Y: Don’t know why, I feel he and I already very very sweet.
M: Everytime when I film with Ah Yi I feel extremely sweet!
Y: To be honest, being able to costar with MaMing, even not as husband/wife or lover is already pretty good, plus this time our sweetness isn’t the hot intimate type, but the type where we support each other.
M: Both of us are willing to put in effort, if viewers pay attention will notice we are indeed very sweet.
Y: I have a lot to say.
M: I just love that you’re bubbly and talkative. But for our bed scenes, we only chatted, I'm so disappointed!

The plot revealed YKT’s anxiety index reading is considered high.
M: Actually many HK people have high anxiety index reading, it’s a type of city-disease. For eg, after we left home, we kept doubting if we’ve turned off the lights, this is already considered a type of anxiety, the problem is whether our anxiety index is high or not.
Y: I’m scared when my alarm will strike during filming period, I’m worried I’d oversleep and be late for filming.
M: Ah-Yi sets high expectation for herself, will give herself a lot of stress, I always tell her not to be so worried. I’m not the type who worries a lot, I’m pretty laid back.
Y: Not really, he does have some hidden stress, like sometimes I’ll tell him to be like this and that, he will respond, “Can or not? I’m worried this may not work!”. He’s stubborn. But I’m also very stubborn, both of us will fight since we’re both so stubborn, but if we’re really together, then we have to accommodate each other. Even being coworkers we have to tolerate others too.
M: You get to see through/know a person well when filming together. She and I have filmed too many dramas together, which makes me really understand her very well. We film so many hours per day, sometimes we are so tired we can’t control our temper, but I have never see Ah-Yi throws tantrum, she’s such a goddess!
Y: I have my stubborn side, but if I were a guy then I’d argue with others but for girls, we’d probably think it’s better to avoid the hassle to argue.

Ma Ming’s mommy pretended to visit him but actually she wanted to look at Ah-Yi.
M: Ah-Yi definitely is a very good wife. Good wife doesn’t mean good well body-figure well…instead it means both persons can get along very well and feel comfortable with each other. We’ve filmed many dramas together before, we can really get along well and feel comfortable. If I have the fortune to have her as my wife, then I’ll be really very lucky.”
Y: He? No need mention, my mother likes him very much.
M: My mother also likes Ah-Yi (reporter asked if both have met each other’s parents?). Yes, she did. There was once we both were filming in Shanghai for SSSS, my mom purposely came visit but I know she purposely went see Ah-Yi.
Y: The most matching part of us is we both prioritize our family highly, he loves his mother, he talks to her on the phone softly and gently, “Where are you? I’ll come pick you up later.” Whoa! Treating her like his gf.
TV-King & TV-Queen
M: Every year is the same, I try my best, you see there’s Chilam, Ah Mo, Sheong Zai (Wayne), beginning of the year has On-Zai (Roger), then later also has Ruco and Edwin….think about it,this year’s list is really scary, then we also have Zhen-Yu Gor (Francis Ng), Kai-Wa Gor (Lawrence) and Zi-Wa Gor (Dayo) all these excellent veterans who haven’t been back to TVB filming….wah! This is even better, I do not have stress. Wei Ma Guo Ming losing is expected, otherwise I’d just take it as I’ve stolen a chicken successfully. If I can steal the chicken based on OC, that means I’m just lucky. But OC is an anniversary show, it airs near the award ceremony, viewers will have impression so this is a bonus for me.
Y: My vote has already gone to you! No matter where I go, I will vote for him (MaMing). Give me five!
M: I also vote for Ah-Yi. I hope she will win BA based on Yu-Zai, because I have very strong affection with Yu-Zai (reporter said if both win will be happy). I will become crazy, really I will be crazy! If I can win together with Yu-Zai, I will give her a deep kiss!
Y: I will cry! Wet kiss with tongues touching/stacking!

Photo caption: If can collaborate together again, when roles you want to play with each other? MaMing replied, “I want to have more intimate scenes with her as a lover. (not afraid of Mr Law), I’m not afraid, don’t say I say, one day not yet married…” Yeung Yi teased, “He always thinks about this in his mind.”

Hi Everybody!!

I LOVE KenTa too! Since there's been so few news and pics of them recently, I figured I'd post a little MV I made of them here. I compiled a bunch of interview clips and footages of them together to showcase their AMAZING relationship. It's to show my support! Let me know what you think!

#7024782 Anti-Raymond Lam Thread

Posted by Ivyjj on 15 December 2011 - 10:20 PM

i said 5 nights bcoz it was planned 5 nights n reduced to 3. Lols, indirect way buy ticket? Juz bcoz i buy a pair of shoes and i got raymond lam concert mean i buy for his concert ticket, lols. N satisfied or not? LOL, it stil dun change my opinion tat he's not tat famous outside HK.

You stated this.

Maybe you should change your wording. "He's not famous outside the non Chinese community."

I came into this whole conversation CORRECTING your statement. I never said Raymond is FAMOUS in Cambodia, India or Spain because that's not a fact. I DO NOT BELIEVE he's famous OUTSIDE the Chinese Community. But I BELIEVE he's famous AMONGST the CHINESE COMMUNITY. Not ALL Chinese lives IN HK. That's as stupid as saying ALL JAPANESE pop stars are only famous WITHIN people in Japan. Japanese people living in USA/Canada/UK would NEVER know who those pop stars are because they don't live IN Japan.

Chinese r everywhere n u dun c he's tat famous in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand n more countries.....

Thanks for stating the obvious and backing up my statement. Chinese is EVERYWHERE in the world, so no matter WHERE they are, there's a community of them. And within those communities, they rely HEAVILY on entertainment from China AND Hong Kong. Chinese people in USA/CANADA/UK would KNOW who Raymond Lam is because they HAVE Internet, they READ Chinese newspapers, they LISTEN to CHINESE radio shows, goes to his concerts AND YES they WATCH TVB. What's wrong with CHINESE people watching TVB? Is there a crime with Chinese people watching TVB?

Wat evidence? Wat did he win outside HK? I mean an award ceremony tat not meant for tvb dramas or tvb actors so dun tell me rubbish how he won sumthing tat is meant for them. Did ppl (a non chinese program show) use his song in their show? Did his song top other countries' chart? How many (non chinese) magazine tat mention him?
do u mean urself? juz bcoz i haven replied n u guys gather here gossiping mean ppl sked of u guys? Tololnya.

YOU constantly bring up the AWARDS up. It's stupid to ask which of Raymond's song was used in another drama because OBVIOUSLY there was none. Even if there was, it's probably WITHIN the CHINESE community. And what's wrong with that? Raymond Lam IS A CHINESE ARTIST, his market is WITH THE CHINESE COMMUNITY. As another member have stated, Raymond's cds AREN'T being sold EVERYWHERE, so htf do you expect his songs to be in a chart? That's as stupid as saying GOOGLE isn't as POPULAR as Baidu in China.

talk wif raymond fans really can make my life shorter.
I SAID AWARD IS 1 OF MANY WAYS TO PROVE SUMONE IS POPULAR LIKE APPEAR ON MAGAZINE TAT IS NOT BELONG TO CHINESE PPL OR YOU GOT PPL TALK ABOUT IT OR TOP OTHER COUNTRIES' S CHART. WHY DO U ONLY PICK ON TIS BCOZ U KNOW U CANNOT PROVE ANYTING EXCEPT THAT AWARD PART?
I' dun shout by using capital letter but juz to make it clear bcoz sum ppl cannot read. Raymond fans r pathetic. They know they cannot win or duno how to talk back they purposely make everyting confuse.

You are obviously making your own life shorter by being ignorant. Over and over again people have proved Raymond Lam IS famous within the CHINESE COMMUNITY.

I just think it's stupid for anyone to say an artist isn't famous WITHIN their own race BECAUSE they haven't received global recognition, awards, showed up in some magazine or whatever COREA'S logic is. There's only a HANDFUL of artists that will ever make it to where MJ is. I AGREE that Raymond Lam will probably NEVER reach that level. But for a HATER to say he's ONLY famous WITHIN HONG KONG is one of the stupidest thing I have ever heard of.


Also one thing I want to add, the CHINESE community is one of the strongest AND biggest markets out there. They account for close to 20% of the population in this world. So to say the CHINESE market means NOTHING is purely your ignorance.

#6980444 Michael Tse criticizes Steven Ma is being immature

Posted by llwy12 on 16 September 2011 - 07:14 AM

What an arrogant and cocky response from Michael! I don't know what it is, but ever since he became popular with the Laughing character last year, it seems to have gotten to his head.....as I've said before, I've never understood the hype over Laughing anyway and I consider Michael 'lucky' that his character happened to appeal to majority of the audiences...instead of reacting with grace, he starts to take on a cocky attitude? WTH? Sorry, but based on everything I've read so far, I feel that the 'immature' one in this situation is Michael, not Steven...

#6953981 Anti-Korean wave tweets cost Japanese actor's career with his agency

Posted by luv4dawave on 29 July 2011 - 04:27 PM

I thought that he quit after the reports--he didn't get fired.

Honestly, I'm glad Sousuke Takaoke said something. Korea is being a little ridiculous sending half of the Korean population over to Japan to promote their music.
I understand bands like DBSK, Big Bang and SNSD promoting in Japan, but now Korea is sending newbie bands that no one even knows or heard of.

I'm pretty sure the Japanese broadcasting stations had a little to do with this too, so I'm not accusing Korea of trying to take over Japan entertainment or anything....(or are they...)
But I would be pretty annoyed if Korean entertainment came to my country and was every channel I turned. Yes, it's great to intermingle cultures, but Japan is still Japan. I don't think we need 2 Koreas. Or 2 of any other country in general.

I duno y everyone blame hallyu wave, kpop, hallyu wave, kpop, HALLLYU WAVE AND KPOP! It's japanese tv station tat choose to broadcast korean drama. Blame Japanese tv station for broadcasting korean drama n not whinning here lik a loser! Tis guy deserved it!!! clapclap



"Whinning lik a loser?"

The only loser here is the one who can't spell properly.
Why are you calling a Japanese actor a loser? He makes more money than you any day.

That's the problem. People can't state their opinions. I don't believe Sousuke Takaoke was whining. He was annoyed and stated this annoyance. Yes, there are people here who don't agree with his actions and think he's being racist, jealous, whatever. But this is his stance. So get over it.

And what did he deserve? So are you saying that people who state their opinions deserve to be jobless and rejected?


Judging by your username I'm guessing you are Korean or a KPOP fan. Breaks your heart to realize that not everybody appreciates KPOP huh?

#6919881 Gillian Chung in a heated controversial argument with mainland actress Shao X...

Posted by ♥ Charlenebaby on 28 May 2011 - 02:03 PM

I'm not surprised with Gillian fighting with others on her weibo. Prior to her incident with Shao Xiaoshan, Gillian has also falsely accuse and attack a reporter on her weibo but ended up embarrassing herself considering that he was indeed a reporter and Gillian didn't know the entire situation. This fight is just one of the many other fights that did occurred on Gillian's Weibo but media usually don't report much about Gillian's fights on Weibo since many of the people she fight with are not famous. I don't know if Gillian enjoys fighting with others or does she just have too much time on her hand?

Posted by Faniuk on 29 October 2013 - 11:37 AM

just watched the final few minutes of the ending of LA. was so touched by XS last few words where she wishes everyone a Live Time of Happiness and full of Happiness in this life time.

I would also like to wish everyone in this Forum a live time of Happiness and thank you for all the contributions into this forum. It has been a wonderful journey with you all in the last few months. It is amazing that Weini can bring us all together from all parts of the world and of a wide range of ages.

I would like to share my happiness and my own love story with you all. In fact my hubby and I are in Paris celebrating our 20 wedding anniversary. Our journey began when I was 19 years of age. In my first year at university of London, I was swept of my feet by my prince charming who was then a 20 years old tall and handsome medical student. During the last 27 years, by each other side we both graduated as professionals, married at the age of 26, became proud parents to a wonderful son at the age of 28 and then a beautiful daughter at 30. We were very lucky to have found each other. Our journey so far has been a very happy one....... Hopefully this fairy tale of mine will continues and looking forward to growing old together .......

It has been 25 years ago since our first trip to Paris as a couple, our love for each other has definitely deepen over the years... We are more in love now than our very first trip to Paris as a young couple.

I wish those who are looking for the LOVE or Mr prefect or Mr right, i am sure there is someone there waiting to be found. Just remember, once you have found him. Grab on tight , love and adore each other.........a life time of Happiness will soon follows......

Seriously, I can't believe MaMing cried in front of so many people and it's so touching that Tavia wiped his tears. I'm really glad MaMing truly cherish and appreciate to partner and work with Tavia. Thus far, no such artist appreciate their costar partner to this extent. Now, if this is not genuine loving, then what would it be? Hope to see KenTa corporate more together, on-screen and of course of-screen (better still real life eh.). Posted Image

#6984356 Bosco Wong teases Michael Tse being Laughing 24 hours a day

Posted by llwy12 on 23 September 2011 - 08:29 PM

Bosco may be Michael's "junior", but he handled the question WAY BETTER than Michael did!

I find it pathetic that Michael makes such an arrogant remark (and doesn't see anything wrong with it), but yet the 'target' of his remark (Steven) and his "junior" (Bosco) take the high road and help him "save face" (Steven by saying that Michael was probably joking and Bosco by saying that he was probably too 'into' his Laughing character). Michael should really humble himself and learn from these two!

#6935651 Nicholas Tse personally responds to marital issues rumors after <<Tre...

Posted by nomad 822 on 26 June 2011 - 05:27 PM

This sounds a bit calculated to me. Now he looks like a great person. But seeing how so far pretty much only Ceci have been attacked so of course she should be more emotional.


This one, is better than his earlier 'politician' statement.

Whether it's genuinely sincere or not - it definitely has achieved what it set out to achieve - he does emerge LOOKING good. Just look at the positive responses and reactions here ... people ARE mostly buying it! :worship

At the end of the day, we will never/can know what REAL (nasty or polite, sincere or goading and patronising) interactions go on between him and Cecilia in private.

Nic MAY be doubly aggravating by playing the smooth, calm rational guy in front, and taking the high road. And Cecilia can look even more of an impulsive emotional basketcase by becomning increasinlgy frustrated with the whole pretence, and reacting.
He may be goading her by playing the role of gentleman ever more because he knows she will be majorly irritated since only she (or a few close people) knows the real truth.

It's a great tool for fighting for custody/alimony bargaining if she reacts .... the more explosive she is, the worse she will look to the public. Better for painting the image of unfit mother.

I DO NOT have a high opinion of Cecilia either. But from all I see of her as a mother all these years, she seems a caring enough mother who is hands-on (and Nic seems the detached father in all their family pictures).

And I just personally tend to think people who impulsively explode with their reactions are much more transparent (and upfront). More genuine with their reactions (Cecilia) and less sinisterly dangerous. The impulsive types have MORE BARK, but they also have LESS BITE. When compared to the silent types who brood moodily with a calm smiling face and then think their reactions/battle plan through (Nic).


IF all Nic's moves are sinisterly pre-mediated and intended to provoke her (he knows her well enough to know how to push her buttons so she will explode) ==== then Cecilia should wisen up quickly, and learn from the master.

Learn to foresee Nic's next possible moves. Be as calculative as he is (IF he is strategizing - afterall he's a survivor from his parents' divorce and he can't be naive).

Since he knows her weak points (eg: very emotional and reactive, too impulsive, in love with him, cares more for the kids) .... then she should close off all those avenues of manipulation so he CANNOT clearly second-guess her next moves. She shouldn't let him agitate her into reactions that will continually make her look bad.

Just let him be. Even if no one will ever know the truth about what kind of guy he is - just let him keep being the good guy if a gentleman is what he needs to portray.

I think Nic has enough experience seeing how his own father handled it (or, was shortchanged in his own divorce :tricky: ), to know how he should handle similar situations.

Cecilia should consider what's more important in the BIGGER picture (for herself, for the kids):
1) either go for intensive counselling, family therapy to try give their marriage a chance .... (and BOTH hands have to clap. BOTH parties have to agree. no point at all if only one party is interested in counselling.)
2) or figure out how to get what she needs to be a good mother = at least half the joint assets and custody.

Honestly, I don't see Nic staying home to change diapers or shop for kid-groceries if he gets custody - it's most probably going to be his mother (if he can get along with Deborah enough to allow her in his house 24/7) or the nannies.
And having kids live in one household one wk, another household another wk .... I have never seen any good in that. If the parents are not on the same page, it's really confusing for the kids = different sets of rules and parenting styles, and a lot of logistics to screw up (and then the blame game starts all over again because one party will be more frustrated and resentful than the other).


That's hardly putting the kids' interest first when considering who to award the majority of custody to.

If they don't handle this right and put their own power struggles aside - Lucas and Quintus will just be repeating the same cycle of their parents.

#6700022 Rainie Yang and Wu Chun bonding just fine for latest idol drama

Posted by nnnn on 25 June 2010 - 08:19 PM

Can you think of something original to talk about? Well if you still don't know, this is the same tactic this network used when promoting Down With Love. (At that time it is true, Ella really melted Jerry)

Oh and please, everyone knows that ELLA already thawed Chun! Chun is only different when he's with Ella. He's detached to everyone except Ella. Chun is just like Jerry. He's only happy when he's either with Ella or with his groupmates. And until now, nobody can get close to him other than Ella, even angela, even charlene, didn't have a good relationship with him unlike Ella.

Very cheap gimmick.

They have been filming for almost a month now and still there is no chemistry in their pictures. How pathetic... Pictures don't lie... rainie yang compared to ELLA, come on, that must be a big joke! This girl doesn't know anything but to act girly and cute when she doesn't even know how to act and sing!

and FYI, Chun doesn't like this type of girls. So just dream on that this team up will be a success or even become real in the future. From the concert attendance til now, all of this are all FAKE.

Hahaha, interactions behind the camera? Is there? Hahaha. Made me laugh... He didn't even know the birthday and didn't stay, obviously not interested as what this article implied.


Give Chun, Ella, and whoever work with them a break, long long break. Don't bother the artists and their fans.

Also, check Chun's thread from ornp, has news about Rainie's birthday. Friends and co-workers should at least cheer for each other once in a while, Chun seems to be a good guy and care about people so he would not ignore something like this.
