Oh Ji Ho - Update re posting.

As it turns out, my computer is still in pieces, therefore, in Limbo. I expect to have it back in my hands within the next two weeks, greatly improved and running like a champ (fingers crossed here).

Since this is a borrowed computer, I don't want to load graphic files into it, so photos will not be posted during this time unless I lift an article from another of my sites, since I can do that easily, and it does not require putting data into this machine.

So, the upshot is, drop back in to check for any new commentaries, or news I come up with. Also go into The Hyacinth Papers to check for new things there. The Hyacinth Papers is a site primarily dedicated to Asian film/drama, but that also includes general movie comments (usually snarling about films I hated).

I miss you people who pass through here, and hope your patience with me is still functioning.

Thanks for waiting.

Best wishes to you all,

I was in complete shock reading about what happened to Oh Ji Ho.

As a fan living in Hawai'i; I have admired his acting ability and his open heart.

I am hoping deep within my heart fans and non-fans will open their minds and see Oh Ji-Ho is hurting more than anyone else. Ji-Ho is the one that has to face a reality that in order to keep on working he had to hurt someone he had come to love very much.

I ask myself would it have been better if he had admitted to loving someone who was working in a bar? I highly doubt it and things could have still ended up the same way. His love would have been put in jeopardy and people would have had more of an opportunity to attack her. She might still have done this to save Ji-Ho's career.

I highly doubt there was a win/win senario...but a lose/lose one way or another.

We take forgranted living in a free country; being able to choose who and what we want in the United States...we often forget that in foreign countries life isn't like ours.

I live to hope that one day; everyone will open their minds and hearts and let celebrities be free to choose and live with who they want and just be happy for them.

I hope that fans remember what Jackie Chan went through and can see thatOh Ji-Ho can be forgiven; to me he has done nothing wrong. Celebrities entertain us...we don't live their personal lives for them.
