Cast & Credits
Acting/Cast: Not a big fan of any of the actors, but Elaine was what drew me to this drama - her character though was slightly disappointing. Never heard of Priscilla before, but I was pleasantly surprised by her acting. She acted very naturally and I loved how casual she looked at home - this is something you don't see much in dramas as it does reflect reality completely. Raymond always plays his roles well so there was no surprise here, and his daughter played by the young Celine - OMG she is the most adorable child actress ever! She is amazing! The rest of the supporting casts were pretty good too - even 009 was adorable <3
Music: I don't listen to HK music much, so none of the songs really stood out to me. The opening song is very nice though - very fitting for the drama.
Rewatch Value: Not something I would plan to rewatch, but who knows.
Overall: Originally, I started this without much expectations, but by the time I finished it, I enjoyed it very much! I loved the whole concept of this drama and the performance by all the actors where pretty much top notch. I noticed how they kept referencing the drama In Time With You, and I can feel that this drama was inspired by it a lot, which makes it better then the standard TVB dramas coming out these days. I do recommend this to those who would enjoy this type of drama - a slightly slow paced, cute and refreshing one.
Though the drama stressed a lot on the use of mobile phones, I was somehow only interested in the interactions between the characters and not how they interacted. It's a simple story of two people (Cho Kin and Ting Sun), who first met when her father and his sister passed away in a fire accident. They both feel the agony of the other, but are in no state of mind to talk to each other. They meet years later when her mother agrees to babysit his daughter. Though Ting Sun might seem to be enjoying the perfect married life with a dutiful wife and a cute, obedient daughter, it is not the same on the inside. Slowly we come to realize the truth about the family and how they come to terms with it. As expected, for the main characters to come together, the wife has to leave. On the other hand, we have Cho Kin initially paired with some reta--, I mean an unsuitable person, and I was left waiting for them to break up. Cho Kin and Ting Sun come together due to his daughter Yau Yau (who's so adorable) and slowly come to realize the importance of having someone who really loves them. Ting Sun feels that she might end up like his (ex-)wife and shuns her, but she refuses to let go. ("Yau Yau is mine, that sofa is mine", I absolutely loved that scene)
Concluding Thoughts: It is a must watch if you're a Priscilla fan. If you liked her in Madam Cutie on Duty or Karma Rider, you'll love her here. Even if you're not, I'd recommend this drama to anyone looking for a long walk down the romantic lane.
