IMDB [1] gives 28 March 1944 as hos birthdate, and not 28 March 1943 as the article currently states. olivier 12:16, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Chinese wikipedia gives 18 March 1943 as his birthdate. I doubt IMDB is very trustworthy with information on Chinese actors; much of their entries on wuxia films are filled with phantom actors created by bad translation. Not trying to start an argument; just an observation.2001:558:6026:9:98:5FE8:5E0B:1A1D (talk) 17:13, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

inaccurate timing[edit]

Jimmy later remarried, this time to air hostess, Kai-cheng (王凱貞). This marriage, too, proved to be a stormy relationship and Kai-cheng filed for divorce. Maybe out of frustration, Kai-cheng started an affair with a young businessman (張昭). Having gotten wind of it, Jimmy, accompanied by reporters and the police, surprised the couple at their lodging and publicly exposed his wife. After public humiliation was heaped on the couple, Jimmy dropped Kai-cheng in 1997.

The above paragraph in the article is very confused about the timing of the events. According to some Chinese media websites that reported the law suit, the couple has been married for 22 years at the time of the court case, i.e. their marriage dated back to 1978. They separated in December of 1996 but not divorced. The adultry was exposed in December of 1999. The court case was settled in the year 2000. The charge to the wife was dropped by the husband. But the businessman was sentenced to 3 months of jail. Jimmy Wang agreed to the divorce request only after the court case. Kowloonese 07:36, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Unpleasant person[edit]

Watched an Aussie documentary last night about the "genre" film industry in that country called "Not Quite Hollywood". Several collaborators who worked with Jimmy on "The Man from Hong Kong", including producer Dave Hannay, stated that Jimmy was one of the most unpleasant individuals that they had ever encountered. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Irisismykid (talkcontribs) 20:06, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
