Joking Taiwan: Amitabha Buddha’s Gravestone

(image source: net)

I’ve been following this collection of story more actively of recent. Many of the stories were touching and thought-provoking. However, this stood out for me although it seemed like an average story. The ending was brilliantly tragic. I think it was the twist that became more meaningful in the long run–even if it had to be so tragic. What stood out for me even more was James Chang’s performance. He was indeed a very good actor, who was obviously overshadowed by the current culture of idol dramas. He was a serious actor and deserved to shine in this collection of stories. Too bad he couldn’t shine outside of this, not for the lack of trying but because people rather promote some other actors. And when I say “serious actor”, I do not mean he couldn’t do comedy, because he was brilliantly awesome at those scenes too. What I meant was he was a true actor, not needing some “polished” role to make him shine but he was able to convince just by using his acting abilities. I had liked him since watching the Madame White Snake parody that he starred in with Ehlo, Athena, and Sunny.
