This review may contain spoilers
I generally don't write reviews but given that this is my FIRST Hong Kong drama and seeing how underrated it is, I have decided to write one. :)

This series is about Lan Fei who after hitting rock bottom decides to rebuild her life with the help of two best friends and a guy name Wing Ho Tin. Despite my initial hesitation, I'm so glad I decided to give it a chance. This drama was just AMAZING! It's been a while since I watched a something meaningful and well written. This drama deals with many important themes such as: Infidelity, Divorce, Friendship, Single Parenthood and the importance of being a self independent woman in today's society. There are many positive aspects about this drama but if I were to narrow them down to my top three, then they would be:

1. Cast and their acting - I absolutely LOVED the cast and they all did a fantastic job at the portrayal of their respective characters. However, I especially liked how all the actors were mature which in turn made the overall quite realistic and fun to watch.
2. I liked how the show indirectly emphasised on how important it is for women to be self-reliant and financially independent in today's world.
3. Overall vibe of the Show - I personally found this drama quite light even though the synopsis and the tags suggest otherwise. The entire show was kinda like a family drama filled with happiness, angst and ups & downs.

However, nothing comes without a flaw. Although this drama doesn't any major flaws but there are some aspects that I wasn't a big fan of such as:

*Major SPOILERS ahead*

1. Amnesia - I'm not a big fan of this trope in general but in this drama, it occurred out of nowhere like everything was fine a minute ago and then the ML suddenly hits his head and loses all his memory from the past 6 months. Although, it doesn’t last long but still, it just felt unnecessary.
2. The show does get a little draggy after EP 20.
3. It was a little unrealistic at times.
4. Lack of Elaborations - Personally, I feel like the infidelity part of of story was kinda left incomplete. I might be the only one who felt this way but at the end of the whole drama, I just kept wondering whether Lan Fei’s husband really did have an affair with that Yan lady or not? Or was she (Yan) simply obsessed him?
5. Rushed Ending

All in all, I really enjoyed this drama and would recommend it to those looking for light light but also one with a good story-line.

P.S I didn't elaborate much near the end as I didn't want to spoil the overall drama. Hope you guys don’t mind.

Don't be fooled by the high ratings for this show

I wonder how this show got a higher rating than many other better shows, this was in no way sophisticated or complex as a 25 episode drama series. Quite cringe worthy for many of the scenes that they had, and the absolute lack of sub plots to follow till the end. All in all, this is a very poor specimen of what a HK drama should be. Rather than building on a story of divorce and failed marriage as a societal problem or phenomenon, this literally only showed the domestic problems of a well-to-do family, I don't know how viewers can get connected with the characters. Very poor show, please give this a miss, this is something you wouldn't ever remember watching for the lack of any brilliant plots or scenes or even characters. Probably, the show got lost in its attempt to portray independent women and overlooked many other aspects of what makes a good series.
