I like the show, but I think the script isn't just well planned. I hate that part. The one about the Filipino maids as well. That's just wrong!

Yeah i watch it! I feel like they're generalizing that "Filipinos" are "MAid" I didn't expect it for asian country to say so... It's RACIST and degrades us to be exact. Being maid is a honorable job per say they to that for they're family so they could have a bright future. I REALLY HATE IT!

The half dog half bird has nothing to do with the maid part so stop distorting the truth.


The purpose was to portray that she couldn't speak Mandarin or/and wasn't related even in nationality.


In western movies when there is a Spanish maid in the movie (Spanglish) or Chinese (Desperate Housewives), I don't remember people making such a fuss.

It's not degrading to filipino's because there are filipino housemaids, there are korean, spanish, english, chinese, taiwanese, african maids and butlers everywhere.

Blowing everything out of proportion...

If he said in the same topic of events "why should I introduce my half dog half bird filipino maid" then it'd be offensive and he's talking about her hair and the way she conducts herself!

Unbelieveable.

I'm not but I know how it feels to have this feeling that there was some insult going on..

In Golden Bride why were all the bad guys who traumatised him black or hispanic?

For people who don't really know the overseas culture they'll have a little smudge of judgement now even if they don't mean to feel threatened. Only some, not all.

I decided to get over it cause many criminals are black and hispanic and maybe they just couldn;t get white actors at the time. I did feel sour about it but then again, some things people of my same ethnicity or nationality will find not offensive whilst others may think it's outragious but in this drama Will Pan insults her also in the drama because it's one of the concepts of the show.

yeah.. a drama that MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WATCH, HALF OF WHICH ARE TEENAGERS OR KIDS WITH IMPRESSIONABLE MINDS.

it's the little things, like this drama, that perpetuate ignorance and hate and do the real damage. so it is NOT just a drama.

Uhhh to me I think you guys are just totallyy looking into things tooo deeply. I don't even think they were even trying to intentionally offend people. Just watch the drama along and stop looking so into it. -____-!
