Beauty Knows No pain

Synopsis

WONG HOI KING (Michelle Yim) is successful in both career and love life. However, she accidentally discovers that her husband CHIN KWONG LUNG (Dominic Lam) is committing adultery. In order to maintain the relationship, KING is willing to take the risk of getting pregnant despite her high age. Pregnancy has imposed great pressure on her daily life as well as her career. Her aggressive subordinate SA YUEN KEI (Maggie Cheung) therefore seizes the chance to take up her duties. KEI is a bold and decisive person at work but she is caught in a quadrangular relationship by falling in love with the married man KO CHI LIK (Joe Ma).

Discouraged by the relationship failures of her bosses, secretary YU MAN YAU (Joyce Tang) further loses her confidence. YAU always has a sense of inferiority because of her “outstanding” body shape. Encouraged by her colleague CHI NAM (Power Chan), YAU decides to boost her self-esteem by getting plastic surgery. She immediately becomes the sexiest goddess on the Internet and the hottest brand spokesperson in town. After getting famous and rich, YAU suddenly realizes that this is not what she really wants…

幸福女人汪海鲸(米雪)家庭事业两得意,后来发现丈夫钱旷龙(林嘉华)有外遇,为保完美家庭的宝号甘愿冒险成为高龄产妇,但怀孕为她带来不少压力,为野心勃勃的下属沙宛淇(张可颐)制造上位的机会。宛淇在事业上果敢决断,但感情上却偏偏爱上有妇之夫高智力(马德钟),因而衍生了一段错综复杂的四角关系。

看见海鲸及宛淇两位强人上司的遭遇,小秘书余漫悠(滕丽名)对自己更失去自信,她一直为自己出众的身材而烦恼,形成她自卑及懦弱的性格,后来因同事池男(陈国邦)的怂恿及鼓励,漫悠才决定以整容来建立自信,谁料漫悠旋即成为网上性感女神及炙手可热的品牌代言人,但当她名利双收时,才明白这一切都不是她所渴求的……。

Comment: Interesting cast! Could hardy recognise Dominic lol When I saw the name title, I immediately thought of “Men in Pain” XD Could it be another gender- battle series? I came across the promotional trailer the other day and it looked like an ad for cometics lol Not exactly excited about this series, but may give it a ago depending on what kind of feedback I hear..The last thing I need is hearing about another woman having self-eestem issues at the work place..(*cough*JanetBin*cough*)

    Looking forward to this for Michelle and the synopsis sounds very interesting. The dynamics between the women seem to be very interesting; since in some filming shots, they’re having shopping scenes together and such. Now that we know Maggie’s character is taking advantage … hmm, interesting.

  • chibi says:

    ooo..interesting cast..it’s Maggie :DD and Michelle :DD

    Might give this one a go…hmmmm. 😀

  • Fiona says:

    :O I WANT TO WATCH THIS SO BADLY AH!!!
    naahh…I don’t think this one is a gender battle series…I hope Joyce quickly gets plastic surgery, I saw one of them, and she looked so bad 😛 hehehe. Going to watch this for sure, been waiting for a few months, and not going to miss a drama with Michelle and Maggie in the same drama. Must watch for me. haha LOL 😀

  • 'Muff says:

    I wonder what Joyce looks like in the early episodes x)

  • Sammi says:

    WOAH the girl in the middle does look like tavia a bit… but uglier& older.

  • Fiona says:

    That woman in the middle is Maggie Cheung. although it has been said that Tavia and Maggie looked really alike when Tavia was younger…ummm…she IS older, but she’s not uglier 😛

  • chibi says:

    hmm..I saw the first episode today and it’s okay so far..though judging from the way Michelle and Maggie interact, I can already sense that the story might just get uglier..

    Joyce is cute and dopey though, hehe.

  • alice says:

    can I know what is the theme song’s name of this drama?

    thx.

  • Kelly says:

    I watched this already! It’s awesome! I would say that it’s much nicer and interesting than Fly With Me. Maggie’s really pretty and cute in there! I loved this show and would probably rewatch it if I have time.

  • Sandyicee says:

    Joyce is unbelievable, gives girls hope to look pretty, but with sacrifices. But this movie gets too ugly between Michelle and Maggie, how evil people can be.
