God, those "false sexual harassment allegations" plotlines really piss me off... How often in media are they framed as something that is only lies? 99% of the time, which does not in any way reflect the real life percentage. I genuinely feel like this kind of things contributes to survivors not being believed in the real world.

It's also a part of the celebrity/idol culture. Not unique only to Japan, any time any celebrity has something revealed about them all the weirdo parasocials that haven't actually had any form of contact believe that the person they "know" was lying to them, then throw on a good old heaping of anti-lgbt bigotry, bake on high for 30 min, and you've got a scandal.

Then on the other foot you have all the people jealous about anyone else's success so they try their hardest to bring their "rival" down even if said "rival" doesn't even know who they are. They either plan stuff in advance (like what's happening here) or cherry pick minute details that in the grander picture mean nothing.

Well, the translators have indulged us tonight. ^^ I just wanted to tell you folks that your work is very much appreciated!

Any time I hear about a celebrity scandal, whether real or fictional, I must think of something William Gibson wrote in 1996:

"[Slitscan's audience] is best visualized as a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

It doesn't seem to matter to the "weird parasocials" if the allegations are true or false, the reaction will be exactly the same, and by the time the actual facts are established, they would have moved on to the next thing, anyway. With incentives like that, I do not think the show business will ever get any more humane.

I felt the story was moving at a rather slow pace and all of a sudden it seems to have kicked into high gear

Did anyone else hear "Megalovania" start playing, when they saw the title? Just me? Okay.

Welp, Qin Mi certainly went all out, though I cannot help but notice that she has kept one more ace still up her sleeve -- her discovery that SN was cooperating with that other actress to sabotage Nan Zhi. Wonder when she is going to play that?

I admire how she acted on the press conference, and the way how she revealed her long lasting and steady love for Nan Zhi.
She's a real queen!

You really shouldn't. Just because there are shittier people out there doesn't excuse being a slightly less shitty person.

The newest chapter isn’t quite up here, but it’s not a spoiler to say that, despite the drama trappings of false public accusations and the horror-movie mom, at its heart this is extravagantly gorgeous romantic fluff, and I can’t get enough of it.

As with lots of other yuri modes, I wouldn’t want every story to be like this, but I’m very glad this one is.

I haven't been to Bali, but I am impressed one can just go there and find a specific person, must be the power of Chinese lesbian love!

If I've learned anything from reading Manwha, Chinese Lesbian Love transcends time and space! It also makes you a successful popstar/fashion model/actress/detective/entertainment executive.

It's not the first time that physical space and time are revealed to be more of an optional suggestion than even a guideline, let alone a law of nature, in this particular story. :-)

There's an explanation for why she could find her.

Gotta say I wish I had the kind of money so when I felt my career and love life were crumbling around my ears, I could just go think about it on the beach in Bali.

Snark aside, I gotta say this has been delivering payoff very solidly.

Two chapters in and I can tell that this is definitely my kind of trash.

This is a really good mature psychological drama, tied to the kind of mid rich and famous yuri format that is for some reason incredibly common in Chinese comics. It still averages very positive but I'd sure like it more if they just had regular jobs lol
