I can't quite remember what made me want to watch this particular drama, despite it being quite lengthy, but what I so vividly recall was the feeling that lingered for awhile after having watched the drama. I still remember the pain of being misunderstood. What this drama made me realize was that sometimes we realize things once they're gone, and that truth is powerful. The importance of saying what's on one's mind read more and just being true, and how scary a person becomes when one chooses not to let go because of utter fear. The lack of courage, now that I'm typing about it, is what this drama emphasizes.

What I liked about the drama is that it was refreshing and very scandalous, dark, unlike the usual mainstream dramas. It got me hooked because it was dark, realistically dark, the chemistry of the main leads was awesome, and no matter what the guy did I could never seem to hate him too much to stop watching it. The Love was twisted, at certain angles pure, but truly deep. Heartbreaking but amazing!

I know a lot might resist watching it because certainly one would have to cry and get attached but that's the beauty of this drama. That is what makes it so good, the journey that both the characters had to go through, and the complicated misunderstanding, one after another, that when we're left to uncover each one, we get to see the real characters, why they acted the way they did.

So I dare you to take leap of Faith and try this drama.

I have watch this several months ago. It's totally different from the usual drama be it Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese or Thai, that I have watched(and believe me I've watched a lot). Some may find it offending but when you give yourself get accustomed to it, you'll get into the whirlwind of unusual love. First of all, Hawick Lau is one of the most handsome man I've seen and Ying Er is so read more cute that she is perfect for this role. They are so good in getting into their characters and kudos also to the supporting roles.
This couple grows into you that you can't stop watching till the end.
One of the best.
Highly recommended.

Main Story is almost similar written by same writer. Sealed with a kiss showed it better because it have more episode to explain the reason behind the main lead extreme reaction also it showed how female lead slowly fall in love with the main lead.

Both are the dark-side of love or bittersweet love of men who use physical & mental abuse on women for revenge yet fall in love, proving all along that the 'submissive' was and remains in control of the Domme. Difference is endings - journey is similar - Thai or Chinese... BDSM is alive and well or in drama land sells ratings. Best part, both leading Dommes' are SMEXY, standard requirement for a worthy Domme.

    The description above is not accurate.... she is forced to become his mistress so he can take revenge on her...But, he gets caught in his own trap, as he cannot help falling in love w/ her....and so his revenge and abuse towards her ends up being more painful to him... ...... .... this story-line is captivating.... .... ....
    I recommend going to "JoelCole.BlogSpot" and reading the translated chapter from his POV, along w/ other comments from the novel...A few excerpts and the epilogue are also translated.
    it really adds to a clearer understanding of the motivations behind the characters in the drama.

      isn't this the synopsis to Le Jun kai

    • Reply
      rainruma Jun 19, 2014

      It is by the same writer and very similar characters and story...
      However, b/c Le Jun Kai is very short, it has a very simple plot covering only a few days....
      LJK is also a bit more violent b/c the lead (Peter Ho) is a mob boss whereas in SWAK he's (Lau Hawick) a business man.
      Here the characters are more complex.... The male lead is a bit more sympathetic and full of angst and repressed emotions...
      Also the female lead here is not simply weak and a victim...
      She walks into it by her own decision... (manipulated and tricked, yet still, she makes the choice.)...... So, she is not as submissive as in LJK.
      (***LJK spoiler***.... although, in LJK too, she chooses him, knowing what he did to her father.)

      YouTube w/ Eng Subs.... ... .... excellent!...especially after I went to JoelCole.BlogSpot and read a few excerpts translated from the novel.... the heroine is a lot stronger and more playful, thus more likable in the novel..... ..... ...... .....also, the chapter about the protagonist's POV gives excellent insight into his motivation and makes him more sympathetic.....

    Although this drama did not have a really happy ending but it was a really down to earth drama reflecting our everyday life. Harwick Lau showed great acting skills in this drama. Glad that I had watched this drama.

    This drama was really awful! The female lead is a terrible actress! <br />I don't find the plot line very romantic or interesting either.

      There's a translation for the epilogue of the book this series is based off of. It's supposed to answer all of the questions that the drama didn't. lol Here's the link:

    Ok just finished SWAK ....sigh...I miss Mo Shao Qian.

    I wish the ending had been more complete and not left the viewer hanging like that, other than that I loved it!

    I'm not sure whether to watch the mini series sequel as I heard its by a different writer and not as good as the epilogue/written ending. Hmmm....

    Just started this drama. Im shocked to find out that the actress playing his wife is actually younger than him. She looks so much older. When I first saw her sitting on the couch with Chairman Mu I thought she was HIS wife & therefore Shaoqian's mother-in-law lol
