Haha... Moses is so cute; he blushed easily. Haha... Moses is so cute; he blushed easily. Below is a rough summary of the article. Sorry, due to my pc breakdown, I don't have the time to translate it at home but at cybercafe instead ($$$). Please do not repost in your site without prior permission. If you wish to repost in forum, please give due credit. (May have some spoilers)

Intro: In Dance of Passion (DOP), Sung Tung Shing and Ka Chun Fen have a deep and painful love. They were supposed to be engaged, but Chun Fen married Tung Shing best friend instead. However, Tung Shing is one who slept with her and because of their relationship, they were punished to [Sky Torching]. Fortunately, they manage to overcome all obstacles and end up together finally. In the series, Tung Shing and Chun Fen are passionately in love, but Moses and Charmaine seem very cool about love in real life. The reporters asked them whether they have feelings for each other and also their perspectives in marriage...

Do you have feelings for each other?
Charmaine says; "I have filmed many series, so I know how control myself. I know how to distinguish between reality and work. Actually, we filmed together for more than 3 months, we see each other more than our own family! After filming end, I started to miss him, so I guess my feelings are moved! (Note: Charmaine is just joking).

Even though her character went through a lot of harrowing events, Charmaine doesn't think being a woman was so difficult back then. Instead, she feel being a modern woman are harder, because of the high divorce rate nowadays. "In the past, most women are not highly educated and they can't choose their marriage, plus they can't remarried after divorcing. Actually, unable to get remarried has it's benefit; you'll treasure your marriage and won't divorce easily." Charmaine also added that if she get married, she won't divorce so it's not easy to convince her into marriage. It's difficult for a woman to find a suitable man and maintain a family. Nowaday, men is not the most important thing for a woman, they can choose to concentrate on other things, such as career.

Moses: "I'm more grounded and clear, you have to responsible for your own feelings, so you can't really fall for the other person while filming. I think that "Hei ga qing zhen" (fake acting but true feelings) are just an excuse. Human beings have logical mind, they can't use true feelings all the time. I never fell for my co-stars.

On divorce rate: "People nowadays only care about their own feelings. They doesn't think much for the other person and when they're unhappy, they just consider divorcing. Actually, marriage is like a lifelong learning, people must compromise toward each other, and try to save their marriage.

After hearing his comment, Charmaine said that Moses is not a good partner, but also a good soulmate. Hearing praises from Charmaine, Moses immediately blushed. Moses is very shy in person. Though he was an ex-model, when Moses was asked to pose intimately with Charmaine, he frozes. After some initiative from Charmaine, Moses loosened up.

Charmaine laughed: "He's really funny, he blushes easily. But it's okay when you get to know him better. He's very optimistic, it's happy working with him and I'm not afraid of having rumors with him.

Moses explained: "It's strange, even though we worked together before, I'm still shy and blushed easily. Maybe my skin is too thin." He added that even though he studied abroad, he still think man and woman should keep a physical distance.

Dance of Passion episode summary
What I'm going to post is a stark contrast from the above mage scan because it's darn bleaky and tragic, especially for Charmaine's character; Chun Fen. Chik Kei Yi and Chow Yuk Ming, how cruel can you be?

(Warning: Major Spoilers)
In order to prevent any accidental reading, I'll post in chinese. Episode 1-16:

第一集
天已经旱了三个月,住在黄土高原上的村女计春分跪在枯井旁边祈雨。另边厢,山上的阎家铺内,宋东升和寡妇茅小卓因相恋而被宋、阎两族父老视为奸夫淫妇,被施以点天灯的刑罚。升向阎族族长阎万曦辩白求情,却更因而惹怒他。卓被活活烧死;升被鞭炮炸致重伤之际,突然天降大雨,他才幸免于难。分背水回家时遇到奄奄一息的升,她为了完成他的心愿,冒雨到刑场替他拾回卓的遗物。分返家后,惊悉已被退婚,未婚夫竟就是升!两年后,计明凤为了拯救家族的烟花厂,而在兄长元德陪伴下来到阎家铺,准备跟曦结婚。凤在吉日来到之前暂住在阎家。凤跟曦弟弟万天是同学,凤相约他见面,可惜他没有应约前来。升返阎家铺奔丧,当他知到父亲厘富的灵位不可以放在祠堂时,登时怒不可遏。

第二集
阎族族人看见已被逐离去的升,追打之。宋族长房长子、升的好兄弟宋东阳出现救走他。升誓言要将富之灵位放在祠堂内。宋族当家、阳的二娘焦玉指阳妻子舒朗月十多年无所出,要阳休掉她,月闻言晕倒。月醒来后得知怀有身孕,不禁愕然。阳担心阎族子弟不按祖训让宋族分享阎族的家财;两族冲突如箭在弦。阳得悉月有孕,质问她奸夫是谁,月发誓并没有对不起他。玉为大夫断错症而气愤,另方而,亦因此而推断出阳不育。玉担心升为富灵位一事开罪曦。宋阎两族因祖坟被挖而起冲突,阳乘机游说宋族父老支持他将富的灵位放入祠堂;玉暗气。曦指责升挖坟挑起两家仇怨,升为表清白,表示愿意再受点灯之刑,曦只好准许他返回阎家铺。玉以延续长房香火为由,逼阳纳妾,阳反对无从。分收到宋家的聘礼,喜上眉梢。

第三集
阳指分的八字不好,拒绝纳她为妾,玉反指他同样命硬,跟分刚好配成一对,逼他就范。阳向升透露不育一事,升认为玉以纳妾一举来揭穿阳不育的秘密,提议他借种生子。阳酒醉后向月说出借种一事,表示要有子嗣才可名正言顺做当家,月听罢一惊。玉知道阳的计划后,决家将计就计,捉奸在床,令阳做不成当家。阳带月下山打种,最终由于不忍心伤害月而打消了念头。升怒责阳临阵变卦,阳反驳说没有子嗣也可以争当家之位。凤和分同日出嫁,自是前者暗自垂泪,后者满心欢喜。二人出嫁途中刮大风沙,她们更被马贼抓去。阎家的吉庆堂鞭炮仓库被纵火,马贼又在山下出没,曦因而推测有内奸。他其后利用升来引出内奸。

第十一集
月替兰按摩时,兰趁机挑拨月跟分的关系;玉责她胡言乱语,她却反言相讥。玉和曦深夜幽会之谣言甚嚣尘上,玉认为曦不会放过造谣生事者,所以对传言不作任何响应。卓夫之弟弟阎国基率众殴打升,指他是造谣者。曦指宋世文才是元凶,责基公报私仇。土被曹拘捕,琴向升求救。阳请玉帮忙求土,玉敷衍了事。曦为了让升欠他一个人情,不但救出土,更请他为阎家开井。玉到庙会看戏,众人对她幽会一事窃窃私语,玉处之泰然,认为曦会现身摆平。曦来到后,果然让所有人不敢再闲话半句;凤不禁自忖玉比她更了解曦。分有身孕,玉等高兴万分,月则不是味儿。玉等庆祝分有喜,兰故意邀请升出席,又暗示升和分关系非浅,众大惊。

第十三集
凤对兰之死感到怀疑。玉否认对兰下毒手,并请凤代她向曦美言,好让阳能顺利做当家。凤指自己力量薄弱,提议她找业。玉跪地求业帮忙,只是业不理会她。业问曦支持谁当宋族当家,并续指阳父厘顺心术不正,不宜让阳当家。业提议由容易控制的文出任宋族族长。宋族祭祖及选当家之日,以文为首的宋家子弟反对阳接任当家,时曦出现恭贺阳,众人即噤若寒蝉。阎族子弟闻阳要开烟火厂,不满,更认为是曦偏袒阳所致。曦以基母要挟基摆平事件,基气愤。宋族子弟到吉庆堂指责基打伤文,双方起冲突,宋族子弟更要求分拆阎、宋两族的祠堂,曦苦恼。凤无意中知道贵教唆文假装被打伤来逼阳下台,犹豫应否告诉曦。

第十四集
凤深夜造访玉,告诉她文、贵合谋假装被打伤。阳、升奉命找文,却见他被袭击,重伤昏迷;玉急谋对策。曦跪地求业出面摆平拆祠堂一事,业表示无能为力。两族族人在祠堂对峙,曦束手无策之际,阳捆绑着升到来,指升是殴打文的凶手。另方面,贵亦出来指证升;升惨被众人殴打泄忿。曦找业,业不讳言文被打一事是自己策划,目的是要教训他。曦向凤细诉他与业多年来不断暗中角力的原因,凤至此始知他的苦况,二人关系好转。月陪分去求神期间,分突然肚子痛。分胎儿不保,伤心痛哭。玉试出是月杀害了兰,并痛心她竟向分下毒手。月否认陷害分,阳听到一切,对月大感失望。

第十五集
分自责令胎儿不保,又令家里变得冷清。凤以她曾说过的「命硬不认命」来安慰她。升下山找土,看见分返娘家,便暗中在门外守着保护她。翌晨,升发现有马贼,带分暂避,可惜送她上山时再遇马贼,分被掳,升被枪伤。凤到宋家,发现分不见了,向玉大兴问罪之师。玉解释分返了娘家,已命人接她回来。过后,玉悄悄地找曦帮忙。凤和阳在玉的房间发现马贼的勒索信,始知她被掳去。玉听到阳向众父老借钱作赎金,叹气之余亦责阳卤莽。玉告诉他暗地里向曦借钱是为了保护分的名声,阳内疚。升强忍着痛去找马贼。他误杀官兵,幸土及时出现替他收拾残局,并告诉他玉已交了赎金。分返回宋家后并没有向阳交代甚么,却托凤转告升没有被马贼污辱好让他安心。

第十六集
基不满曦借钱给玉,赎回不干不净的分。凤气愤,反驳之。业教曦放任谣言指曦借钱给玉,是向宋族落井下石之策,以重整阎族子弟的人心。凤不满大家抹黑曦,曦安慰她,说这无损他的地位。曦突然聘请升到吉庆堂当杂工,升心知他是来利用自己来重建阎族子弟对他的信心。升在吉庆堂打水时发现水井干涸;天突然打了一个旱天雷,他心感不妙。旱天雷击中贞节牌坊,基乘机指这是凶兆,矛头直指向分,贵也附和,说要大义灭亲。凤反驳此乃无稽之谈。曦提出由分三跪九叩到牌坊,向天公谢罪。其后,业怒责曦没有藉此事来铲除宋族长房,曦表示他也是逼于无奈。分三跪九叩后仍未下雨,玉担心。凤提议带分返娘家避风头。

I'm not sure whether I'm going to translate it because I'm busy lately and my pc broke down so I'm unable to translate at home.

Plus, my company is paying me salary to work, not to run my own site :P

Hope you'll understand.
