2004年由曾之喬、Gino、JR、王紹偉主演的經典台劇《紫禁之巔》雨中尬舞片段時隔16年意外在有美版PTT之稱的外國社群Reddit爆紅,引起外國網友熱烈討論。

一名網友於週二PO文寫道,「以前台劇演員就是這樣打架的。」內文附上《紫禁之巔》JR與Gino在雨中尬舞的經典橋段,只見兩人肩膀互撞,準備開始打架,接著卻尬起舞來,全程完全沒碰到對方。同時,飾演女主角的曾之喬在一旁大喊:「住手!你們不要再打了」,成為流傳多年的經典台詞。

“This is how characters fight in an old Taiwanese series,” a Reddit user wrote. The clip, taken from an old Taiwanese TV series “Top on the Forbidden City” shows two male leads, played by actors JR and Gino, having a dance-off in the rain.

In the video clip, the two leads bump shoulders, glare at each other, and begin their dance-off. However, they never touch one another as they mimic and combine fighting moves with their silly dance moves.

Meanwhile, the female lead in the show, played by Joanne Tseng, shouts from the background, “Stop fighting!”, cementing the show’s status as a classic from 2000.

經典台劇《紫禁之巔》描述晴天(JR飾)、天蠍(Gino)與小影(曾之喬 飾)之間的愛情故事,在當年紅極一時,創下超高收視率,也捧紅了了劇中演員,沒想到時隔16年竟登上國際,成為老外社群話題。

“Top on the Forbidden City” follows the love triangle between characters, Sunny (晴天), Scorpio (天蠍), and Hsiao-Ing (小影). The show was a hit in the early 2000s and catapulted the actors into the limelight.

After 16 years, foreigners have unearthed this gem of a TV series and began their own dialogue and interpretation of the show.

PO文引起網友熱議,紛紛留言表示,「這是在示範維持社交距離打架?」、「新好男孩回歸了」、「美國職業摔角可以和他們學一兩招」、「我一直想知道功夫結合舞力全開電影。」

The post has since attracted the attention of Reddit users, with many commenting, “Is that social distance fighting?”,  “Backstreet’s back alright,” “WWE could learn a thing or two,” and “I always wondered what would happen if you combined a step up movie with a Kung Fu movie.”
