Okay, so I felt like blogging about Kevin today since he was one of my favorite singers back then (but I didn’t realize it was him until one of those days several years back that I put two and two together). He just looked different in those days so it was a bit hard to notice.
So what was with the outburst? Honestly, I wondered what happened but I guess TVB happened. More specifically a temptation in the name of V-Lok. Yeah, I knew what happened in the past with his master/teacher must have been hard, etc but it was a bit disappointing to see him cave in in the end. Well, he got fame and recognition, but somehow I felt it was for all the wrong reasons. I felt like he should have gone down the singing career path instead of the acting one since people did not care for him in that matter because he would just be a shield for all of TVB’s political fights. Not to mention he was often placed on the platter for people to idolize because of his looks AND not his talent (or like no one cared to analyze it further than that). Then somehow along the way, I don’t know, but his singing seemed to deteriorate (or so I thought) as well. It was like the more handsome he became (or thanks to those people working on his current image), the less talented he turned into.
What was wrong with his singing now? I don’t know. I liked more songs from him back then than now. He sounded more lively back then. Yes, I know that most of the songs he sang now are sadder but honestly, I could not feel the emotions brought into it versus his songs back then. Also, though his image was along the line of a nerd (or something like that) back then, somehow I liked it more that way. It looked more natural, more real versus all the fake layer now. NOT that I am accusing him of being fake, BUT I am just saying it looked forced somehow.
I think I should be glad that he and Raymond Cho are still best friends–like once upon a time. At least it shows that he still remembers how Ray was supporting him during those harsh times.
