Mistreatment of Women


Why isn't anyone calling Daoming Si on his behavior toward women? This is a sad day when the "hot guy" gets to behave like this because he is wealthy and considered "childish". It is not ok to put hands on women. Ugghh. I do not want to hear any "it's their culture" excuse either.

Are you new to Asian Entertainment? If so, I'm sorry to say, its their thing. A lot of their romantic dramas/films have the leading man being an asshole to his love interest, while the second lead dude is the nice guy she doesn't want. Unfortunately, class is huge in Asian culture. The rich pretty much gets away with a lot cause they tend to pay off people. That's why bullying is so huge.

I've never seen this version but I have watched the Japanese, Korean & Taiwanese versions. Even the sad US attempt. The Korean version is my fave it was huge. It up'ed the bar. I'm surprise folks are still adapting it.

I wouldn't say I am "new" to it. I have seen several different series and I love them. The writing and plot lines are different than American shows. I do not mind aggressive men, but that was far more than that don't you think?

reply

I haven't seen this version so I'm not sure how aggressive this guy is vs the other versions. The lead never hit his love interest in any of the other versions. He did try to force a kiss on her in the korean version. I know in the original anime he tried to rape her at one point but I don't remember if he hit her. I can't remember if that was in the Japanese adaptation. Yeah I'm not here for Domestic Abuse but unfortunately, some Asian women view this as love or okay. They have a weird view of love & relationships. If you keep watching their stuff you'll see.

To me, Lee Min Ho in the korean version embodied the lead perfectly. While still being asshole it was hard for me to hate him because he also sometimes came off sympathetic. I think it was the way they wrote this version. They gave each F4 depth.

Did you watch this on netflix? I'm noticing more people discovering Asian dramas from there.

reply

Yes, it is on Netflix. They did imply he was forcing himself on her however it seemed more of a make out session. In this version she does not like him, she likes the musician.

The other series I am watching that has me addicted is "Memories of the Alhambra".!

I have watched:
Zhi Wo Men Dan Chun De Xiao Mei Hao

Something in the Rain
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8078816/

My Love Eun Dong
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4791426/

I loved them all!

I haven't watched any Chinese dramas. I got into Asian entertainment in 09' that includes music as well. I kinda lost interest around 15' plus most of the celebs I liked either disappeared for a while or had to do their 2 year military service. But I did manage to finish legend of the blue sea and watched Bromance last year. I'm waiting for lee min ho to get out of the military. A lot of the guys are getting younger & I feel weird watching anybody younger than 27 cause they look like babies.

If you want to watch more dramas hit up Viki if you haven't already. Use boxasian & gooddrama.net as a backup.

Who is this? If you want to watch more dramas hit up Viki if you haven't already. Use boxasian & gooddrama.net as a backup.

Viki started off as an Asian drama site but has since added dramas, movies and shows from other countries. They are a legit site.

boxasian & gooddrama is an Asian drama/movie site.

reply

Oh ok. Is that available on firestick?

reply

Viki is. Boxasian & gooddrama isn't. You'll have to use your computer for those.
