Adjustments to the synopsis given by TVB:
At the beginning of the series, Bong (Chung King Fai) has already retired. Lawrence and Yoyo don’t become lovers because of Chung King Fai, they fell in love with each other naturally. Bong and Leung’s relationship were pretty good, but its because of Leung’s overly concern for his father, and his father thinking his son doesn’t trust him that leads them to enter the “cold war”. Bong met the lady in Hong Kong but went with her to mainland, and she soon became his girlfriend.
I quite enjoyed this series ^^ even though my first impression of it was so-so. The poster looked bland as well, and the cast doesn’t look that appealing to me very much. It was a neat little modern day story with romance based around the real estate industry. I don’t think its that cliche, and did have some different ideas and parts I didn’t expect =) As always, watching character development and relationship build is what I really like, and it does happen in this series~
