As Ethan Hunt said in her blog (zh), Ang Lee's Lust, Caution aroused a debate on re-appraisal of the “patriotic traitors” during the anti-Japanese war (1937-1945) in Taiwan. The blogger has scanned a debate between two Taiwan scholars Lung Ying Tai and Wang Yongzu in her blog. Lung rereads the historical records and argues that Ding Mocun (represented by Tony Leung in the movie) did not deserve to die because of his contribution to the KMT government. She suggested we should not impose a strict judgment on these “patriotic traitors” who lived in a chaotic era. But Wang Yongzu disagrees with her and challenges the reliability of the historical evidence she provided.

Kevin Li posts two music videos of rap about feng shui and two feng shui masters, Mak Ling Ling and So Man Fung (zh). Feng shui is a discipline with guidelines and techniques of site planning, internal furniture arrangements and fortune-telling. Feng Shui masters used to dress in traditional costume and looked serious. Yet, in Hong Kong, feng Shui masters have presented themselves as celebrity, talk show guests, comedians and stars over the past ten years. But this is the first time they appear in Cantonpop music video.
