    Default The Cheung Mo Gei Glorification Thread

    ...because he needs one badly, MUCH more than even Gwok Jing does.

    Cheung Mo Gei...for reasons that I'll never fully understand, this guy is not among the favorite Jin Yong protagonists. He's called "wishy-washy," "wimpy," or worse. I can kind of see where that comes from, but critics of the character seem to always overlook the *great* qualities of this character, which I think are more numerous and more obvious than his flaws. Among the Jin Yong protagonists, he's probably the nicest guy. He also did more good for the other characters in his story than most other protagonists do for the other characters in their stories. The criticism he gets seems too much (to me) compared to his many virtues.

    So here it is...we celebrate the greatness of that mooncake NON-inventor, Cheung Mo Gei.

    dont we have a defend ZWJ thread? Also, I think only the people here hate zwj. i've seen him liked more in other places, mainly random chinese websites. the people here seem to hate all aspects of him (martial arts, his deeds, etc).

    That (like the subject himself) is too passive and defensive. The objective of these "glorification threads" is to actively and aggressively promote the subjects' virtues.

    lol in that case lets celebrate zwj, the guy with the highest internal of the condor trilogy and one of the top internals in JY books, and the guy who gets the crap beaten out of him because he sucks at fighting when he has very good martial arts, and the super pacifist

    Take out those lines** written of Zwj and his personal attributes , one can almost start to think Ken has finally recognisingly written a long overdue Yangguo glorification thread if there ever was one that was earnestly written not for official coverage. Can be reused as a template the day Ken decides to do one for Yg.

    *I* certainly won't be starting any Yeung Gor glorification thread. If there's one protagonist who *doesn't* need a glorification thread, it's Yeung Gor (he's overly glorified already). If you want to see one, you're going to have to take the initiative to start it on your own because I'm certainly not starting one for him.

    Zhang Wuji not only built his internal from scratch, he had to start from a mortally wounded state and he spent long years of hermitage developing it. No kinds of special boosts for Wuji, just many years of hard work.

    Yang Guo could have gotten 4. But he remained loyal to THE ONE, and not like Zhang "every girl I see, my feelings gravitate towards her" Wuji. Have you guys counted the # of times he said "I want to be with you and only you?" He said the same thing to 4 or 5 different girls.

    who are the four that YG could have gotten with then? I only recall 3 girls ever liking him, 4 if you count guo fu.

    zwj didn't gravitate towards every girl he saw. he only started thinking about his feelings towards them when they started asking him who was the one dearest to him. he never loved all 4 girls, and the only "gravitating" he did was trying to treat each girl well without hurting their feelings, and not the "gravitating" you're refering to.

    That's exactly why ZWJ is a better guy. Thanks for proving the point.

    she did, but doesn't anymore, because YG turned her off, which he did on purpose. therefore she doesn't count anymore.

    I don't think so. A guy who has something good going for himself will always have many haters. Most things people hate about ZWJ tend to be things they're jealous of. Things people praise about Yang Guo tend to be "good for him! phew, glad I'm not that bugger" stuff.

    I've said it before: there are two types of ZWJ haters - women who want a top guy like him (leader of the world, strongest, most intelligent man, kind-hearted etc.) but realise that they can't beat the competitions, and guys who secretly want to be him but realise that they aren't good enough.

    You can say "poor guy/girl" to characters that people are indifferent about.
