Feeling abashed when remembering his late father’s teaching, minibus driver KEI YAT-SING (Wayne Lai), who has suffered setbacks in love and business, is determined to pull himself together and help raise his girlfriend’s child. His neighbour HUNG CHI-LONG (Ronald Law) has regarded him as his own brother, hoping one day the relationship between his sister HUNG LAI-SA (Amy Fan) and YAT-SING will eventually blossom into romance so as to share each other’s burden. However, YAT-SING seems a bit reluctant. One day due to a traffic accident, YAT-SING encounters the person-in-charge of the YIU Group, YIU NGAI-YAN( Louisa So), who appreciates YAT-SING so much that she hires him as her private chauffeur. In fact, in her company, it’s easy to get entangled when it comes to workplace controversy. Apart from fighting a lone battle there, NGAI-YAN is also under close surveillance. As to her family members, only her cousin YIU CHI-HAU (Tony Hung) seems more reliable. Yet, as an indoors-type of person, he is very indecisive, keeping an ambiguous relationship with his co-worker MUI MAN-KWAN (Natalie Tong). Misconstruing that YAT-SING, out of greed, has already taken bribes, NGAI-YAN demands him to resign within seven days. Nevertheless, during this critical moment, YAT-SING manages to help NGAI-YAN out of trouble, and a subtle feeling gradually develops between them as a result. Unfortunately, both of them come to realise the difference between their social status as if they were in a real-life fairytale, finding themselves at a crossroads in life……

Official Synopsis

A robbery case subtly interweaves the fate of three strangers, a barrister in a wheelchair KO CHIT-HANG (Roger Kwok), a Hong Kong girl TAM MEI-CHING (Kristal Tin) and District Crime Unit detective CHEUNG LAP-FAN (Ron Ng). Implicated by her gangster boyfriend, MEI-CHING is charged with attempted robbery and is found guilty. Although CHIT-HANG, as the lawyer representing MEI-CHING, fails to exculpate her from the charge, the two fall in love with each other. Gradually, under CHIT-HANG’s guidance, MEI-CHING manages to turn over a new leaf after getting out of the jail. Through his investigation, LAP-FAN learns that, many years ago, he negligently shot and thereby paralyzed a civilian, who turns out to be CHIT-HANG. Instead of bearing a grudge against LAP-FAN, CHIT-HANG turns into his best friend. CHIT-HANG has been abandoned by his family ever since the accident. In order to make a living, it takes him more effort than the others to eventually stand out and become a rising star in the legal profession. Being recruited by wealthy businessmen, MA KAI-YUEN (Louis Cheung) and TO YEE-HANG (Waise Lee), CHIT-HANG often claims victory in lawsuit cases by surprise tactics, helping set his clients free. However, there is evil hiding behind his decency. The more successful CHIT-HANG becomes, the more suspicious LAP-FAN gets. All of them, including MEI-CHING, seem to be trapped in the slowly tightening grip of encirclements one after another, finding themselves on the horns of a dilemma……

*Warning: Contains major spoilers*
TVB Ruse of Engagement

Ruse of Engagement was a TVB series I initially skipped because of a busy schedule (I have been busy preparing for my Hawaii trip and other things while the series was airing), but recently decided to come back to give it a go based on positive reviews and recommendations (both online and through friends). I’m glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed the series! (especially the 2nd half!) Other than the first two episodes, I found episodes 3-10 ish rather draggy, mainly the episodes Ruco and Ron were training in the ATF program. Episode 11 onwards was when the series really picked up and kept me at the edge of my seat! The episodes leading up to Ruco being shot was so suspenseful!! The series was really suspenseful and intense and the plots had quite some good twists which caught me off guard, especially trying to find out who the traitor is, and who was the mole etc. This series definitely stands out and is worth the watch.

Ruco Chan: Brilliant performance, especially towards the end. I really like watching his character when he’s serious compared to when he’s joking around, flirting with Aimee in the earlier episodes or trying to be funny. I liked watching how much he cared about his mother though. I felt the ATF training episodes were a waste of time and I disliked watching how cocky and immature he was and how he and Ron constantly disobeyed orders -_- It’s like ‘what are you boys doing -_-’  I was quite indifferent with his pairing with Aimee Chan and much preferred him with Yoyo Mung. His ending was quite sad, did he really have to end like that…?

Ron Ng: If there’s one thing I disliked about the series, it would have to be Ron’s character and performance. While he is supposed to be the other main character alongside Ruco, I found his character unlikable. He was actually OK in the early part of the series, but I grew to hate watching him when he didn’t believe in his brother – and for no real reason! What happened to their strong bond? It felt like he was getting jealous that his mother favoured his brother more than him; and how his love Aimee also fell in love with Ruco. I was utterly angry and disappointed at him just as Ruco was. I believe there was truth in what Ruco said to him when he pointed the gun at him. Ron was trying to find every reason he could to bad-mouth Ruco in front of Aimee and find evidence that he ‘had turned bad’. The worst part was Ron not stopping Eddie from ‘electrocuting’ (?) and torturing Ruco to make him tell the truth. He didn’t stick up for him at all. GRRR ANNOYING!! Later on, he just kept getting in Ruco’s way and tried really hard to impress his superiors. At the end, he stopped Ruco from shooting Aimee but I felt like he never loved her that much anyway -_- At the end, he just resumes with his life. Bleh. He was constantly hot-headed and irrational. I give him credit for chasing Aimee at the start but when Ruco ‘died’ and he started copying his brother to get Aimee’s attention got on my nerves…I’m surprised Ron’s character didn’t turn evil :P His acting is so ordinary, sometimes over the top and hasn’t shown much improvement after all these years.. His character isn’t supposed to be unlikable ( I don’t think!) but I just don’t like him. He is supposed to genuinely love Aimee and want nothing in return but is bias towards Ruco. Sorry Ron, you can never be like your brother :P

[Message from K] June 2014

Hi everyone :)

Hope you all like my new ‘The Ultimate Addiction’ Banner featuring Kate, Bosco & Nancy! ^____^ *Thanks chibi for making it for me!* hehe nice and refreshing!! I have been following this series and am quite enjoying it- half way through :)

The Ultimate Addiction Layout

Recently facebook deleted a chunk of my posts and screencaptures from my Facebook fanpage (including the Raymond Lam Banner!) saying it’s copyright infringement, and that they would delete my entire account if I post anymore *sigh* So…if you go to the page now, it doesn’t even have a banner. I haven’t added anything since- not sure if I should. I’m considering closing it down to avoid any potential issues linked to this blog. EDIT 26/6: Facebook has now closed down my facebook account.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those 1,194 people for the page likes and those who enjoyed my daily updates screenshots as I was watching the series. Hopefully you will continue to support my blog via twitter , RSS feeds, or regular visits to our blog.

My main concern this K-tvb.net which I’ve spent my last 7.5 years on. A couple of TVB blogs have been shutdown in the past due to ‘copyright issues’ and it almost feels like we will suffer the same kinda fate *touchwood*. It’ll be just a shame. I just think it’s stupid for TVB to kill off blogs who are merely creating some online activity and promoting the series for them, essentially for free. I am not claiming that I am affiliated with TVB, nor that I own any of their materials. I’m just a TVB fan who dedicated her time in watching TVB, making screencaptures and sharing my thoughts and opinions. The screencaptures all have TVB logos on it!!! TVB is already going downhill as it is, I just hope they seriously reconsider what they are doing and how that actually impacts themselves. TVB is not going to benefit from it at all… *annoyed*
