    To all of those who have been offended or hurt by my comments I apologize. I was addressing the facts of interethnic tensions among the many different asian ethnicites. I sincerely apologize. I would urge you to read the last paragraph in my statement. It was made for those to understand the context of what that statement would mean. Again, please understand that WAS NOT my opinion. This is the opinion of many in my country. When I visit my country this is the norm for most of the people living there. I have been confronted many times by people when they noticed that I have had a tan. The comments are unpleasant to say the least. I would like to stress the point that I stated it is not nice but it is there. I made this statement not because I was promoting this idea that lighter skin is beautiful. I was stating it because to me, it is the truth. Even at this state in social development, prejudices and racism still exists. I truly wish that judgements based on skin color does not exist because I too am not a girl with snowy white skin as advertised in many beauty ad campaigns. I never claimed that I BELIEVE skin color equals beauty.

    I was upset at the fillipino people who said being mistaken for vietnamese was degrading. I should have taken the high road as pinay9705 pointed out. I apologize for that offense too. However I do not apologize for the statement that many believe it is true. My country is still not open to the idea that every skin tone is beautiful. pinay9705 please understand this. Just like the United States there are areas of openess but there are also areas closed to people of different skin tones such as the small towns of the deep South. Some of my black friends have had bad experiences on a road trip that was taken this summer of 2009. Even a multiracial nation such as the US has these issues. Vietnam has not been exposed to many different ethnicites and nationalities, so the tension is even further intensified and magnified. Even during the Vietnam War mixed children were considered to be ‘trash’ and were abandoned. Some closed-minded Vietnamese people even came up with a special slur name for them that is nationally recognized and used to THIS DAY. (It has the equivalent of the N word to African-Americans.) Many Vietnamese-Americans such as I view this as horrible and disgusting. But people STILL USE THIS WORD TO THIS DAY.

    I do not agree with many of the people in my country who hold these contemptful views and still use that word and still stick to old ideals. Although I do not agree or believe in them, they still do exist. I will not justify the views of those from my culture who beilieve in the whole skin tone issue of lighter skin. Just like many different ethnicities of the asian race, there are many like I who disagree with the belief of their culture that streses that ideal of beauty. It is unfair and unjust but I can only hope that as Vietnam moves forward, it will change.

    *also in a side note, Asians are not the only ones who have issues about this fact. My latino friends also complain that in almost every single music video the girls are also lighter skinned and have european features rather than Latino features. Blond hair instead of black, etc. My middle eastern and Indian friends also have noticed this in their culture of celebrities as well. My friends and I all agree that the average person from each of our differnt culture/race do not look anything like the idealized beauties that are elevated to celebrity status in our individual cultures.

    additionally, i forgot to mention that the newer generations in my country do not promote that ideal of beauty any longer.

    I recently started watching this drama and must say that it is very, very good. I skipped it a few times over the years, thinking for some reason that it wouldn’t hold my attention. I now stand corrected! Maybe it was the total number of episodes that I just couldn’t see myself trying to watch. My max is 35 at the most. Yet, I’m well on my way and there’s no turning back! LOL!

    ok250682 Says:

    I am curious why LYA has many fans in King Baker Kim Tae Goo and Eugene was recommended as 3rd lead role that leads me to Golden bride where LYA acted.
    I find this drama very interesting and also with many good actresses and actors who can act very well.
    I find LYA still cannot attract me very much even now at Episode 42 ..
    I hope Song Chang Ui – the lead actor in Golden Bride – can have more chances in near future as a lead actor in other new drama because not only he is good looking – more important is he can act too.
    He got the lead actor potential. So disappointed he always act as supporting roles or 2nd lead actor in Cinderalla Man etc or his pairing partner is just so so only. Hope he can pair up with good leading actress. Song Chang Ui — All the best to you in your career – Hope you can shine brighter —– SOON – yr fan from Singapore

    GB fan Says:

    wow! I was very suprised… I was flabbergasted how good this drama was. I truly loved it I highly recommended. In the beggining I was scanning it and by looking at the poster and read some reviews I thought I would try it and scanned it. but in the second epi I was hooked. that was beggining to become more more interested… through all 64 eps I couldn’t help but to watch it over.

    Everyone I mean EVERYONE did a fine job acting. Mother, father, aunities, sisters everyone, acted as if its real life event..
    This drama was fun and Very relax and much enjoyable. I felt as I was there. I Love Love it! Thumbs way UP!
    Thank you for bringing and making this type of drama. ~Kudos!
