Sex counselor Mok Tai Hung and sex therapist Lam Ching Yee have been dating for five years. The two love each other very much and want to take their relationship to the next step by getting married. But Ching Yee's strict and conservative mother Liu Doi Lam, is highly against them being together due to Tai Hung's financial status, him being a bit older than her daughter and also him having a son from a previous relationship. Tai-hung puts up with Ching Yee's mother bias of him and hopes she will come around one day. After the two are married they still find roadblocks in their relationship as Tai Hung constantly has to put up with his new mother-in-law to show he is the perfect son-in-law. While Ching Yee has to adjust to life at Tai Hung's family home and tries not to offend her mother-in-law who overly tries to be helpful but only makes matters worst. Tai Hung's immature friend Kam Cheung once lived an affluent life, until he was swindled out of his inheritance. Now he lives a desolated life in a small rundown apartment where he can't even afford to pay his electric bill. When he cons Tai-hung's equally immature younger sister Mok Siu-tou into lending him money to start his underwear business, he didn't expect her to cling onto him until he repays her. Tai-hung helps Cheung repay his debt to Siu-tou, Cheung does not learn his lesson and uses Siu-tou's identity as a co-signer when he takes out a loan from loan sharks. Meanwhile Ching-yee's uncle Liu Chun-cheung, who is in his late middle age is getting married for the first time. His much younger newly wed wife Tong Tim-tim just immigrated to Hong Kong from mainland China, not long after marrying Chun-cheung. Ching-yee's mother Liu Doi-lam. who has taken care of her dependent older brother all her life does not trust Tim-tim and is afraid that Tim-tim will con her brother, even when the entire family tells her, Chun-cheung doesn't have anything worth conning. The problem with Chun-cheung and Tim-tim's marriage is, he finds himself unable to keep up with his wife's sex drive as she wants to have intimacy every night. Even with the help of his friends in helping him avoid having sex with his wife each night, Chun-cheung finds himself unable to resist Tim-tim when she is in costume for foreplay. At Ching-yee's younger sister's high school, extreme conservative literature teacher To Tak-kee, feels that all the students should be like him, remain a virgin until marriage. When he sees students from his ultra conservative all girls school mingle with the opposite sex from another school he goes as far as to stalk them after school and then telling them to stop seeing the male students from the other school or else he will tell their parents. When Tak-kee finds out that fellow teacher Emma Chung lives a promiscuous life outside of work he threatens to tell the school principle. Emma won't allow him the chance to tell the principle about her secret lifestyle, when she tries to seduce him and then uses that against him.
Cast & Credits
At some point it does felt like sex education, but the way they present it was very natural and it fits in with the story line. I don't usually watch modern TVB drama since they tend to over-dramatize things and cringe-worthy acting. However, this series was refreshingly entertaining! The casting was spot on; everyone played their role perfectly. I love all the couples in this story. The main leads had GREAT chemistry! They were very convincing as a couple and then husband/wife.
Favorite Actors & Actresses:
I never paid much attention to Sharon Chan; probably saw a bunch of drama with her in it and never realize it, BUT she was super in her role as Lam Ching Yee. All her emotional scenes break my heart! She is truly a talented actress. I'll be looking forward to her future series. Good job Sharon!
Grace. What else can I say? She's amazing as usual. I love her in "My Dearly Sinful Mind" and she did not disappoint in this series. Love her story with Sammy. They made a very cute couple, though I wished they flesh out that love line a bit more. It's nice to see her acting a good guy role, but I do miss evil Grace.
Eddie - hilarious. Like Sharon, I recognize him but never really paid much attention. He was so sweet throughout this series lol. I can't say for certain, but he does this thing with his eyes during emotional scenes, and boy is it powerful. He doesn't need to cry for the audience to sense his pain. Now, that's amazing. His chemistry with Sharon was so beautiful and so real.
Overall, I highly recommend this series. Great story, great acting, and great message.
