Notes to answerer
Asker: Hello Will Wong. Could you please translate the Chinese text in these comments and use Pinyin so I can understand what was posted? I'd appreciate it. Thank you. :D

Asker: Hello Will Wong. Are you there?

Asker: I could use your help.

Asker: Hello Last Hermit. I went to an online translator and translated your comment: 很可能不是硬汉,而是粗人。: Very possible is not the dauntless man, but is the careless person. Can you please explain what you meant?

Asker: PKchan comments translated to English is: 不是陀地、悍將便是: Is not tuo, the brave warrior then is. ANd Angus's comment is: 所說鐵漢,好像電影明星尊榮一樣: Said the iron man, probably the movie star reveres the glory to be same. Can ANgus and pkchan please explain what they meant? Are tuo and iron man CHinese slang terms for "tough guy"?
