Jepoy's Picks, Missing Star Mandarin
Saturday, January 14, 2006

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Stardate -317037.71



Before the Chinovela and Koreanovela invasions, my eyes were glued on Star Mandarin. A cable channel dedicated to Chinese movies (Sometimes korean and japanese subbed in Mandarin). I usually spent hours watching Stephen Chow's movies and other Hong Kong hits like La Bra, My Wife is a Gangster, etc. And when I watched Legend of Zu's remake, one of its stars strucked me... Cecilia Cheung.

By some chance, Star Mandarin showed movies which has Cecilia Cheung in it. Stephen Chow's movies rocks. He's more like a Vic Sotto of Hong Kong as almost all his movies has the same cast. King of Beggars, God of Cookery, God of Gamblers, etc. This is also where I've seen Shaolin Soccer for the first time that made me admire Zhao Wei's beauty :) Star Mandarin also showed The Ring but was subtitled in chinese so I didn't understand the story, only Sadako's eyes :P Star Mandarin's also responsible for my addiction on Jeon Ji-Hyun, My Sassy Girl, and its theme song I Believe. That was a night in September 2002. Jeon Ji-Hyun ended my year long admiration for Chinese actresses... koreana naman :P

It's safe to say that Star Mandarin opened a new addiction within myself-- addiction to almost any Japanese, Korean, and Chinese stuff. I've looked everywhere for any Music Videos and Movies that might interest me on the internet. Then I found KISS' music video, Because I'm A Girl. I first thought it was a movie but later I found out that it was just purely a video made for the song. Chris, from DOGZ, also sent me an MTV of BoA's My Sweetie in Destiny's IRC server during that time. After seeing her MTV, I've added BoA to my stalking.. err.. fav's list... HAHAHAHA! :P

Then came a time when SkyCable's greed entered the scene. They bribed Star TV to discontinue giving feeds to
Destiny Cable and soon.. all Star-branded channels disappeared in Destiny's Channel Lineup. Including Star Mandarin.

Years passed and Shaolin Soccer was released locally, KISS' Because I'm a Girl got a local and barbaric translation, My Sassy Girl was tagalized and it's theme got pirated by a moron, and everyone now listens to BoA.

It's ok.. they're all yours!! Hahahaha! My attention is now focused on Deka Yellow, Ayumi Kinoshita... Count a few years more... everyone might be drooling for Ayumi... :P

Once a Jepoy Pick, Now it's Everyone's Pick.
