TAIPEI — Fans have expressed their surprise and disbelief at Carina Lau’s 'young look' in the latest episode of the popular TV series Eighteen Springs aired on Nov 20.
Lau, 54, played a social butterfly in her early twenties with her hair tied in a double ponytail to the surprise of her fans who said that she failed to “pretend to be young.”
Social media users added that she doesn’t look like an “older sister” (a polite term of address in Mandarin for a girl or woman slightly older than the speaker) but rather like a “mother”.
Others also questioned whether the late Eileen Chang, the author of the original novel, would have allowed her to do this.
The series, based on Chang’s novel Half a Lifelong Romance, stars Carina, Jiang Xin, and Joe Cheng.
