The Official Jamie Chung / Chi Chi Thread
You answered your own question by misspelling her name.
she's one of those chicks that looks different in every pic =[
i am like that....but im not a chick
What's the tcg-esque card from?
Awesome video of Chi Chi kicking ass
Nice tribute vid.
Yes, that's why they say Gohan's incredible power is the product of Goku's strength and Chi-Chi's temper.
Funny how I'd hit it in every pic, but I'm a guy so maybe that's not to surprising...t:
I don't think she's pretty at all
Yeah, Jamie as Chi Chi is as disappointing to me as this added Teto character. I don't like her at all. I don't know how she got the role. She's needs too much makeup to look decent. She probably only got the role because her English was better. Should have went with a non-Asian in my opinion.
Err...how do you figure that?
Chi Chi's ethnicity doesn't really matter to her character. I rather see a better actor who also fits the look more. Why not even more diversity. Personally, I wanted Wong to stick with Stephen Chow's pick: Zhang Yuqi. Jamie is MTV grossness.
Jamie didn't exactly knock my socks off either, but she's not so bad. Chi-Chi's actress has to be Asian, though. She's always been intended to be of Chinese heritage, since the very beginning.
You'll find endless speculation about whether Goku and Vegeta should be Asian or Caucasian, but characters like Chi-Chi, Yamcha, Tenshinhan, and Krillin are no-brainers when it comes to ethnicity. True, find actors that look as close to the part as possible, but they've gotta be faithful to the characters' ethnicities.
I ask that about most American movies. We finally get an American movie based on a Chinese/Japanese story with a majority [if that] of Asian actors and you cry diversity? lol
First of all, Dragon Ball isn't the first American movie "based on a Chinese/Japanese story with a majority of Asian actors". You talk like it's a groundbreaking thing. Last Samurai and many others have preceded Dragon Ball in that regard. And, Dragon Ball is VERY loosely based on Journey to the West. It's own world is very diverse with unspecified ethnicities. Secondly, who's crying? Grow up. My point was that if they can't find a decent English speaking Asian actress, they should broaden their criteria.
Too bad Jamie is Korean. I agree Chi Chi does come off more Chinese that's why I prefer Stephen's Chows pick of Zhang Yuqi. Hotter and better actress. I suspect her English isn't as good so she got nixed and now we have the inferior Jamie to fill in the shallow "Asian" criteria.
Firstly, no ****. I'm pretty sure you just assume I think it's some groundbreaking thing. Also, screw Last Samurai for making a Caucasian guy the last samurai. No **** again to the rest.
Secondly, look up "cry" in a dictionary. Oh I'm more grown up then you'll ever be small fry. My whole point in the post is that there ISN'T enough Asians when more movies should be diverse.
I find e-fighting very pointless. I didn't mean to come off as an ass prior to this post, but I can't help but reply when provoked no matter what the medium.
... when does Chi Chi attack gohan in the series like that, i have no idea what ep/movie thats in?(like, fight him) ??
Read what you wrote and then respond rationally. "We finally get an American movie based on a Chinese/Japanese story with a majority [if that] of Asian actors..." Like I said, it happened already so it didn't finally happen. I already commented about your weak point that insists more Asians is equal to diversity. How about refrain from using childish comments like "lol" and "crying". And, 'e-fighting'? Are you incapable of proper discussion that it seems like e-fighting to you?
Comments like "lol" are used to indicate a less than serious tone in internet communities much like this one. No different from a smilie.
Words tend to have multiple definitions, "cry" being one of them. Ergo, I was indicating "loud; yelling." I never once said "crying" until now, only you did, TWICE.
Will you finally shut up so we could just "Electronic-Talk" instead?
She doesn't just "come off more" Chinese, though. She is Chinese, lol. That's like saying Superman comes off more white than he does black. Well, of course. And yeah, not to be ignorant, there is a difference between all Asian cultures. But they obviously share a much closer resemblance to each other than that of Caucasians.
I see what you're saying with shallow criteria, but it just wouldn't make sense otherwise. The only excuse Goku has for being a white guy with the name Goku, is that he's an alien from another planet who just happened to be adopted by an old Japanese man. Chi-Chi has to be Asian. She was born on Earth to an Asian family. There's no way you could cast her as Caucasian.
Of course, she's too old now, but my perfect casting call for Chi-Chi would've been Michelle Yeoh. If only she were 10 years younger, at the least.
great post, as always, Dedpool
don't lie. all oriental asians look the same. there is no difference, lol. i'm korean, and i can't tell the difference until i see their last names. besides..a lot of koreans and japanese people get plastic surgery anyways. it's hard to tell these days.
james kyson lee(a korean dude) plays hiro's friend in heroes. but i'm pretty sure everyone in the world thought he was japanese.
i hope chi chi and goku get married right after the tournament...
relationships are so troubling now a days in movies.... spiderman being the most annoying mother load of them...
it'd be nice to see a fairytale kinda thing...
