Hong Kong heart throb, William Chan (陳偉霆), has been killing it in China in recent years. Although William was blessed with talents, his heavily Cantonese-accented Mandarin skills doesn’t leave much to be desired.

William recently attended the press conferences for his new series “Age of Legends”《橙红年代》in Beijing and Shanghai. At a promotional event in Beijing, he funnily revealed, “I always thought the director especially liked me. Every time after a scene, he says “pretty good (挺好的).”* Later on, I found out he said “Stop! Okay (停! 好的).”*. This led the audience to burst out in laughter.
*挺 and 停 are homonyms whereas 挺 means very/quite and 停 means stop.
