I don't think he meant to insult the Philippines. Maybe he's just saying to Chun that Brunei's close to the Philippienes and he should be careful not to get lost.

I seriously think it's all a misunderstanding.
By watching the video you can see him [[calvin]]
and wu chun laughing while he said that. That's
not insulting seriously!

Ragn's translation about Chun and Calvin's conversation

Chun: This is Brunei

Calvin: BRUNEI?!!

Chun: Right...

Calvin: What beach of Brunei?

Chun: I'm so happy that the well-known beverage decided to shoot tthe commercial here at Brunei
I had told them....
Because I had recommend to them the beautiful beaches ere at Brunei
Look for yourselves, isin't the beach here are nice?

Calvin: Don't be like that, I hope that the next...(sentenced cut by Chun)

Chun: I told you, you ask him... (pointing at Calvin), isn't Brunei nice?

Calvin: Right...

Chun: Right, you see...
Right, I told you that Brunei's beaches are beautiful.
When they came here, they also felt that it's really gret...
Right, we came here to shoot for four days, right?
(waiting for Calvin's confirmation)

Calvin: Right...

Chun: Right then, I will bring them to eat some well-known food here like wild ginger rice, laksa, Hainan chicken rice...

Calvin: He really is, told you...
He really misses Brunei so much he went crazy! This is Taiwan, you're CRAZY!
This is Kenting, you my swim back to Brunei, you may keep on swimming towards Brunei!


Chun: Maybe it's the effect of last night's sleeping pills... (laughing)

Calvin: You may swim back to Brunei, just make sure you will not land in the Philippines, ok?


As you all know the country Brunei and Philippines are near thats why Calvin joked about it but in Chinese culture the way he said it is insulting to the country Philippines and Ngar who translated this told me since she is Chinese herself and she even asked
her other friends who can understand and knows their culture and they agreed that when Calvin said that he did insult the Philippines.



i think were just too sensitive about this issue.. and i watch the video it's so obvious that after he said those things he LAUGH..

Well, lots of people stoop down on Filipinos, and that's not new to me. I'm a Filipino and I am glad that I am, so what, right?! Those fu***ng as*holes!

Anyhow, it was probably a misunderstanding. We have different cultures and views in life, better respect that. He meant no harm.

Are you sure he wasn't making fun of Wu Zun's motor skills? Or his sense of directions? I don't see any resemblance of an insult to the Philippines here.

Sorry if you were insulted you, though. He's a celebrity and they should really respect their fans and their culture. If I were you, just ignore him. That's what I've been doing with Rainie Yang and Ken Zhu.


i also think that he's insulting wu chun in a sense that he is joking with chun's sense of direction, because brunei is near, and he (chun) might go to the philippines when he swims..

really, try to broaden your minds, peepz..

dont over react, maybe its a joke because in some threads they say wu chun is eager to go to Philippines but his agent does not allow it, so calvin is just making joke....we should think positively
