Gawd! I can't believe I'm posting so many comments in this thread! FengMi has made me a FSF fan? Argh!

P.S. I think I'm really enjoying 4 Women Conflict. I love the score. I'm a sucker for melodramatic music. One thing that YZ does right is the score for most of his dramas.

I'm not a fan of any Asian actors or actresses but if I see a particular character I like, I try to see if the actor acted as good in other series. Since I liked FSF's Yinsi, I was curious to see how his acting was in his other series. For Scheme of a Beauty, I couldn't get pass the first twenty or so chapters and even then I FF some of the scenes. The series was so boring that the only saving grace for me was Fenolie. I actually thought their story was cute and their chemistry was good. Not as fire hot as Fengmi but nonetheless, I feel they had chemistry.
Now allow me to rant some more about Yun Niang. I know, I know it's old news but still......
What I hated most about Yun Niang is not just the weak and pathetic character of FSF but also Asian dramas characterization of mother in laws. Not that they are wrong, as having a personal encounter myself, I do think Asian mothers-in-laws are some of the worst out there, but too many times, Asian dramas made the mother in law the evil and the father in law as benevolent. The cliche gets old after a while.
However, in the same breath, I liked how it portrayed how tough women have it back then, especially as daughters in law. Perhaps the reason why Asians mothers in law are some of the worst may be related to how they were treated as daughters in law and as wives back in the old days.
I am only half way done with Four Women of Conflict, so I will not comment too much on it until I am done with the series. BUT, and it is a big BUT I am also tire of seeing FSF as a rich boy, FSF needs to really break out of that mold and get some new exciting characters. Perhaps as an assassin or a warrior (not inherited or a rich one) would be nice. I don't know but after watching three or four of his series where he played someone rich and privileged I'm getting a bit bored.
I do say that FSF have some the best crying face especially in Gong. Many actors can't do crying scene, I'd say FSF pulled it off nicely.
He does play an illiterate assassin in his first movie/ series with yangmi. The movies was shot 7 years ago and never released, but it seems like it may be release this year. But don't keep your hopes or expectations too high as it was a low budget production.
From experience, sometimes its better to have a low budget production but quality script and plot than high budget production with ridiculous plot and storyline. I do hope the series will get released I loved to see how young them two were.
christiantran, did you say you're watching Four Women Conflict without english subs? I actually found a website that has english subs.

Fortunately he seems to be having luck this year! After Gong I don't think he's played another "rich boy" character. Plus he will be playing a "warrior-type" (Xiang Yu) in Hong Men Yan. So I'm sure he's having a lot more fun now.

OMG, I can't believe it! Thanks so much. I'm at work right now so I can't stream it until I get home but thanks so much. Most of the time I have to guess what they are saying but there are some words that are similar to cantonese so I understand some of it. Once again, thanks so much!
