I think I’m writing this to repent myself more than anything since my last post of him was so negative. Or at least it felt that way to me, contrary to my past impression of him and the last several years. Perhaps, I was such a big chicken and how I was so scared that people would criticize me or even going to target me if I as much as express my likings for Kevin. (It reminded myself too much of how I was cornered in the past and had not stayed firm on my beliefs.) I shouldn’t have let others influence me regardless. What’s to be ashamed of, right? But this topic should be about Kevin and NOT me so I’ll move on.
Actually, I felt that he has been typecasted since he became the lead and that’s saying something. I remembered liking his acting style when he was NOT lead. Everyone goes through that phase at TVB, except for several rare people. This is NOT a reason to justify Kevin’s lack of variety since he was declared as TV King. But it’s what most viewers have been familiar with. Just because TVB decided to give him the crown, anti-fans streamed in to attack him. It’s like a contagious hatred that spread endlessly, which happened in the past with others and will continue to happen in the future.
Did anyone realize all the smaller roles that Kevin appeared in years and years ago? What am I getting at? I don’t think it’s even fair to say that he just jumped out to be the main lead all of a sudden. He was around for a while. Just like some other people. I think he actually deserved the lead spot after so many years. BUT I do not think that he should get the crown for TV King. YES, I said it. It was for the wrong series. It was too early also. But I don’t think he deserved to be bashed like that.
Just to make a point and to redeem myself. Next topic? Kevin, Ray, and Timmy.
