Ming Dao Scolds 5-Year-Old Actress for Misbehavingjessie tan
Known for his nice guy image, Taiwanese actor Ming Dao (明道) shockingly losing his temper at a five-year-old child star, named Guo Guo (果果).
Ming Dao, Guo Guo, and Huang Yi (黃奕) were filming a short clip sending Lunar New Year blessings. While filming, Guo Guo refused to listen to instructions and did not cooperate. In addition to head bumping Huang Yi several times, the video also showed Guo Guo mindlessly kicking Ming Dao on the couch continuously.
Exasperated, Ming Dao finally turned to Guo Guo and said, “Damn it, don’t waste my time. We’ll wait until you’re done fooling around before continuing to film.” After scolding Guo Guo, Ming Dao got off the couch and left the scene.
Guo Guo’s Mother Apologizes
Netizens initially berated Ming Dao for being impatient with a child. Many also felt that Ming Dao should not have used foul language towards a child, no matter how irritated he was. However, the video began trending again, and netizens now seem to have a different take on the incident. Some felt as though Guo Guo’s mother deliberately shared the video to smear Ming Dao’s reputation, and sided with the actor, stating that dealing with an ill-mannered child is unbearable.
Although many still feel that Ming Dao should not have used foul words around a child, they are now also placing the blame on Guo Guo’s mother for not disciplining her child. When online debate over the matter began to increase, Guo Guo’s mother immediately deleted the video and posted an apology.
“When I think about how this is affecting an actor’s career and making a passionate actor’s life more difficult, I really can’t bear it. This is all because of me, and the last I could do is apologize, even if it is too late. There were a lot of people on set that day, and Guo Guo was pouting. She did not sit still or properly on Huang Yi’s lap. Time and time again, she refused to cooperate. I didn’t think to tell her to stop messing around. Unfortunately, this affected everyone’s filming experience, especially Ming Dao. He had filmed many scenes and was very tired and hoped to finish work quickly to go home and rest. It is normal that he reacted negatively to Guo Guo’s behavior. Ming Dao is a professional actor. He wanted Guo Guo to be respectful and cooperate and not waste everyone’s time. He has helped me teach Guo Guo about consequences. Guo Guo has a lot of learning to do. I have impacted an actor’s career and I feel guilty. Ming Dao, I am sorry! I hope you can forgive my mistakes. Everyone, please do not overly criticize a professional actor,” Guo Guo’s mother stated.
