Making A Mess Out Of Life – Twice

28 Apr

SINGAPORE : Get your tissues out next week because you’re going to need it – if you can understand the plot of this new Chinese drama series, that is.

Debuting on May 5 is the plot-twisting, emotionally-charged MediaCorp TV Channel 8 drama Rhythm of Life. With a plot reminiscent of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Sliding Doors, this 20-part series boasts of a star-studded cast including Christopher Lee, Elvin Ng, Jesseca Liu and Jeanette Aw.

The drama revolves around the lives and loves of a guy and his two friends. Friend A’s sister loves Guy, but Guy loves Girl – who Friend A is in love with, as well. Friend B, however, loves Friend A’s sister, thus forming a love rectangle bound for disaster.

Friend A’s sister then dies in an accident, but because Guy’s too busy chasing Girl, he misses his opportunity to save Friend A’s sister, changing everybody’s lives. Guy is whisked back to the past – just before the accident-prone sister kicks it – for a chance to make things right.

Rhythm of Life is touted as the series that will give your tear ducts a workout. After all, the trailer, shown at the press conference held at Sinema at Old School on Thursday, featured all the male leads in teary-eyed close-ups that spilled dramatically into full-on sobbing.

Hey, real men also cry, okay? –

This Is For My Ex-Wife

11 Dec

SINGAPORE: Huang Yiliang did it again – made another controversial speech involving former wife Lin Meijiao.

At Sunday night’s Star Awards, which were held at the St James Power Station for the first time, Yiliang won the Best Supporting Actor Award for his role in the drama Women of Times.

When he went on stage to accept the award, he said he wanted to give the award to Meijiao. In the same speech, he also thanked his current wife. It was a speech that raised eyebrows, not least due to the little-known fact that he has remarried.

In 2003, when he won the same award, Yiliang mentioned Meijiao in his thank-you speech, comparing her to a giraffe and saying her neck had grown from yearning for an award.

Meijiao was not present at Sunday night’s show.

Backstage, Yiliang lost his cool when quizzed him about the speech.

“Meijiao is more talented than me but she doesn’t have my luck,” he said. “I’ve always wanted her to win something so I’d like to give this award to her.”

He claimed he was simply voicing the wish of his daughter with Meijiao. He has been married for three years to Lily Liu.

“When I made that speech in 2003, I only had good intentions. I regret that it’s a joke that fell flat, I shouldn’t have made it.”

Visibly annoyed, he added: “Do you know how influential the media is? If you write bad stuff about me, that’s the end of me. Please spare me. I don’t have any bad intentions.”

Meanwhile, the Best Actor and Actress Awards were won by Li Nanxing and Ivy Lee, respectively, while Hong Huifang nabbed the Best Supporting Actress Award. Bryan Wong won Best Variety Show Host, while Kelvin Tan won Most Popular Newcomer.

The top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes were: Christopher Lee, Gurmit Singh, Tay Ping Hui, Vincent Ng, Edmund Chen, Qi Yuwu, Mark Lee, Kelvin Tan, Elvin Ng and Bryan Wong.

As for the women, the top 10 were Kym Ng, Huang Biren, Xiang Yun, Rui En, Michelle Chia, Jeanette Aw, Felicia Chin, Fiona Xie, Quan Yifeng and Jesseca Liu. – TODAY
