In Hong Kong, entering the financial, real estate or commercial industries are "down-to-earth" activities, but wealthy heiress Katy Kung likes being "off the ground." She and good friend Jason Chan open a tech start-up. A hacker incident allows Katy to witness the talents of IT genius Owen Cheung. She invites him to join the company. Owen is an "off-the-ground" homebody who disregards the world around him. With the help of nurse Moon Lau, he learns how to communicate well and starts to develop feelings for her. Katy and Owen go from having a difference of opinions to working together and complementing each other's weaknesses, and she unconsciously develops feelings for him. Katy initially believed that technology will bring beauty to the world until Internet scandals successively hit her father, brother, and sister! (Source: Casualtvb.blogspot) Edit Translation

It's not mind-blowing good but it's comforting in the fact that it's about everyday things and people. I never liked Owen but this is by far his best performance and I felt he brought much more to his character that even the writers expected, especially when he was crying over the memories he had with his family. That scene was so well-done! Even Jacqueline surprised me - she was lively in her character and no longer moved around the set like a 'plain white paper' with no charisma.

The star of the show has got to be Katy, especially when you consider that this is her first leading opportunity. Maybe because Faye was a very likeable character, but I felt so comfortable watching her. Her crying scenes are done so beautifully, without any over-exaggeration. Really hope TVB will give her more leading roles as she definitely can handle them!

The only flaw in this series is actually Moon's character. I have nothing against Moon, she's a capable actress but I'm so sick and tired of her getting the same kind of roles and plot-lines. Her love-line with Jason was so draggy and unconvincing, and when you add Owen's 'crush' on her, it becomes really annoying and contributes nothing to the plot and theme of the show. Wish Moon can get better roles and not characters that can be written off any time :(

This drama is not suitable for family watching, considering the cast Jacqueline Wong with such perverted and poor personalities teaching the wrongful act to the young ppl. She shouldn’t be aired at anytime. It’s a good drama but the more we watched, the weirder the feeling gets when we know such actress’s lousy personal life. ...................................................................................................................................................................,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,..........................................................................................................................................................................
