Ok let's get started. So apparently, Maggie made my eyes teary within the first 5 min of the first episode!! WTH?! I totally didn't see that coming!! I got so emotional just by listening to her narration. It was her voice, so old-fashioned and so old too. She was able to bring out the mood just by using her voice. I'm impressed!! Good job Maggie!!
The story begins in 1934 in a small village. Miu Tin (Moses Chan) is basically a 'seun poon' in his village because he's nice, filial, capable, blah blah blah... After the death of his parents (a rather sad and touching part... Q.Q)), Miu Tin and his friends decided to go to Guangzhou to sell off the medicine they have grown for the past 2 years.
Looking forward to the relationship between Sun Yuet and Miu Tin!! They met many years ago when Miu Tin was 10 and Sun Yuet was 18. At that time, Sun Yuet was on her way to marry Sai Cheung. They haven't properly met each other again yet but it seems like Miu Tin recognized Sun Yuet.
I still couldn't get over the fact that Moses got his role as Miu Tin, who's 8 years younger than Maggie's character Koo Sun Yuet. Because the thing is, Moses looks older than Maggie, it's not convincing!! They should have gotten a younger actor for this role (Bosco? Ray Wong? Ruco? or Kenneth??). However, if they insist on using an actor at Moses' age, I prefer Steven Ma!!
From the first 4 episodes, I feel that this series is similar to Rosy Business. The wealthy Ho family and Moses-Maggie relationship are comparable to the Chiang family and Wayne-Sheren relationship in RB. I highly anticipated this series so hopefully it won't disappoint, especially the ending.
And isn't that... RAYMOND WONG?!?! O_o Since when he's in this series?!
