Communication is the key to forming bonds between people. This is a story that follows ordinary disputes and revolves around a TV host who works as a mediator. Simmer Down is a TV show with a unique concept of mediating between aggrieved parties. Its host, Yang Guang, excels at his job, but he is never willing to get himself directly involved, nor does he know how to act when the problem comes knocking at his own door. When lawyer Liao Wang appeared before him on behalf of his mother, who left him 30 years ago to claim their old house, Yang Guang had no choice but to face his family problems that he's been avoiding throughout his life. Meanwhile, the arrival of a new host threatens Yang Guang's livelihood. Can he find a way out of his conundrum? (Source: ChineseDrama.info) Edit Translation

The script raises very interesting questions, such as complicated family relationships, lack of communication between parents and children or between couples, the impact of childhood trauma, the problems caused by the lack of knowledge about the dangers of postpartum depression, preservation and recovery. of the environment, among others, however, the stories of the characters are quite superficial and, despite the characters being, for the most part, likeable, the development of the plot leaves many edges. The novels are lukewarm and not enchanting.
The cast is good, the performances do not disappoint, but also do not surprise.

I enjoyed this tremendously for the concept of mediation as a tv show. I thought it to be very good writing and the way it flowed and engaged. I did very few skips. The cases, it’s resolutions were thoughtfully planned out and with plenty of food for thoughts afterwards. I’m thinking, wow this can save people court/lawyer fees. However, you gotta be brave to ‘air’ your business that becomes publicly others. It’s certainly a family show with so many slices of life. There were lots of thought provoking concepts I thought deeply about. One such is parenting, whereas children look to them as their idols (mostly I believe), yet there’s much more going on in some that meets the eye. Some parents carry big scars. Yes, very good writing. What wasn’t so good is the fluff in the romance side. Yes it’s definitely there, three couples. They each developed to stir in us something but no shaking emotions. Surprisingly for me who is heavy on romance demand’s didn’t mind too much as I enjoyed as mentioned. If you have the patience for this kind of family drama, it really is an excellent one, thus my high scoring.

Here’s another first for me. The music. Like the Hawaii Five-O older catchy theme music, I always looked forward to this ones and bops to it. Then, there are two songs sung brought in during those climatic moments. Both are very good but the one by female artist is so beautiful. After a great episode, I’d linger on just letting the soothing song sink in. I have no idea what it’s saying (no translation) but it’s fine, it touches deeply. I’ll later find out but that is one beautiful voice. Oh yeah, can’t forget to give credit to cast. Mature cast, perfectly selected…bravo.
