• Christine Kuo Criticized for Her Poor Cantonese


      Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) is currently aggressively promoted by TVB, appearing in dramas Tiger Cubs < 飛虎> and Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭II>. Romantically linked with Kevin Cheng (苟芸慧) in recent weeks, Christine’s public profile has been increased dramatically. However, Christine’s acting performance has been met with mixed reviews.

      Since watching Christine’s performance in Ghetto Justice 2, many viewers expressed that Christine’s Cantonese has not improved over the years, and some suggested her to find another Hong Kong boyfriend to practice her Cantonese with. Born in Taiwan and raised in Canada, Cantonese is not Christine’s first language. She revealed that she did not begin to study the language until she joined TVB in 2009, after winning the station’s Miss Chinese International Pageant. Christine said, “When you’re dating someone you usually expect to be with that person forever, and not because you want to practice Cantonese with him. I’ll rather chat with you guys (the media) for practice!”

      Work Comes Before Love

      Christine will portray a medical intern in TVB’s new drama, A Great Way to Care 2 <仁心解碼II>. Christine said she is very grateful for the opportunities the company has given her, “Every drama I have filmed thus far has a different challenge. At the moment, I’d say costume dramas are the most challenging, especially Beauty at War <金枝慾孽 (貳)>.” Christine also said that Ghetto Justice 2’s “Lynette” resembles her own personality the most.

      With regards to her recent romantic rumors, Christine thanked the media for helping her increase her notability, “Thank you for writing such great reports about me! [The reports] have given me more job offers. Although there are misunderstandings, I believe time will prove to everyone as to how I really am as a person.”

      Christine was asked if she sent birthday blessings to her rumored boyfriend, Kevin Cheng, who turned 43 years old on August 15th. The 29-year-old actress asserted, “I already wished him happy birthday this morning on Weibo.” Asked if Christine had Kevin’s phone number, she admitted, “I have a lot of my colleagues’ phone numbers.”

      Christine said she is currently not interested in finding a significant other, “Right now, I will place all my efforts in my career.”

      Since the broadcast of Ghetto Justice 2 <怒火街頭2>, Christine’s popularity increased and more businesses are seeking out Christine to endorse their products.

        But Gum Gong's cantonese is pure humour. He got a lot of fame he has right now from his broken cantonese (super trio/5 senses).

        TBH, i can stand Gum Gong more than Christine. Gum Gong broken cantonese can really help him in variety shows, but not Christine.

        how do u buy her as a doctor though she gave mouth to mouth to a dude that threw up white stuff i would expect her to have some respiratory gear back there no? she is hot but maybe she should stick to pictures or do mandarin movies rofl. She is just wooden even the adele songs dont help.

        Gum gong just does not fit in this role for me at all his acting sucks here but he did have some pretty decent roles like his debut in EU i seriously didnt know he was a funny guy in real life and his role in no regrets was pretty good also.

        Difference between Fala Chen and Christine Kuo...one with curves...one straight flat.


        Fala good head posture and sexy curves and elegant look
        Christine lopsided head and not sexy and very normal look

        Yeah he's cool as a bad guy. He has that look when his hair is shaved short, like in EU.

        Kam Kong improved a lot, but yeah I think the reason why they speak like that is because of the way they learnt to talk. Something to do with their tongue. Mandarin speakers will mostly have that accent when speaking Cantonese.

        Haha, her acting is copeable, but she just needs to get rid of that accent/

        Time to hit Canada eh?



        But she didnt even learn the lang. till 2009.....ofc the canto isnt going to be any good. Maybe she should just speak eng the whole time lolz, Qbobo is even better. But the acting....idk, she has a pretty face, thing is...if a girl can act and be believeable in any role they play...dam yall got a problem on your hands, you wont know if your girl is faking it or not

        Janice's canto is pretty bad, she singing, well singing usually isnt an issue (look at Celine Dion). But theres a reason she isnt acting (a melody looking wasnt acting).

        Are you lot noticing that only recently, these 'new' actors are speaking in mandarin on TVB Drama? I personally don't fully understand mandarin so it's sort of annoying that it's not Cantonese. JJ reminiscing her dead bf, speaks in front of his grave in mandarin.
      1. MissCheekS's Avatar
        ^ it was a lot less annoying than christine!!
      1. turbobenx's Avatar
        JJ is a good actress....cant compare her to christine...i dont mind madarin actually...because she was immigrated from china in GJ...it's more real to speak the main language.....

        I think Qbobo's canto has improved like a lot, I remember last time i saw him playing a role of a lawyer, omg his canto was flawless...even I can't speak Canto like that
