Wel­come to the Dark Side

“Not many peo­ple know about the darker side of the busi­ness,” said ac­tress and co­me­dian Joyce Chen in our in­ter­view (“First Per­son,” Au­gust 12, is­sue 1158). Face­book read­ers dis­agreed…

She’s not com­par­ing it to the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try in other places. Jen Lok

Why so prej­u­diced. You are mak­ing such an un­fair as­sump­tion. Be­sides not ev­ery­one who comes from the same re­gion is the same. When can peo­ple fi­nally un­der­stand this? Yimin Huang
