When the internationally-renowned Feng Shui Master Ray forecasts a predestined doom ahead, the only solution he knows is to find an ill-fated wretch to serve as the scapegoat of his mishaps. After meeting Pei Pei and knowing that she is the person he looks for, Ray purposefully woos her to keep her by his side. While everything seems to be under his calculation, Ray does not foresee that he would eventually fall in love with Pei Pei, the hapless girl with a big heart. However, their numerology is totally incompatible, which means their relationship will only lead to a series of unfortunate events. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
I know many feels the female lead’s acting is a bit weak, however, she plays the role of a positive ever-so-bad-luck girl perfectly, she didn’t make me feel irritated one bit when she was misunderstanding the male lead. The chemistry between the two leads are also very good, and their interactions are believable, not OTT when they accidentally hurt each other to create humour (instead we get this understanding that it was an accident and it’s actually funny if you were the insider, 1 point for being realistic instead of striving for corny moment for some extra laughs).
The bad thing about this movie is it’s a movie that try to cramp in a lot of little things: family value, perspective on your jobs, etc. and because of that, everything get touched on only. Could be great if it’s a mini series, say 3eps -10eps to flesh out the family value, outlook on life despite your horoscope, and more in-depth exploration of fengshui.
All in all, it’s still a great watch, it is what it is, a light hearted comedy, silly but fun, make you feel happier and more bubbly after watching it. Totally recommended
