Synopsis

Renovation contractor KWAN KA-ON (Michael Miu Kiu Wai) is the elder of four siblings, while his wife SZE LONG-KIU (Sonija Kwok) is a typical housewife. Buying a house is their longtime dream. But when his eldest brother, KWAN KA-HONG’s business goes under, they shelve their plan to help him overcome his difficulties. KIU has to look for a job too. Unwilling to see ON shoulder the burden on his own, KWAN KA-LOK (Linda Chung), the third of the siblings, turns to her supervisor GAO WANG-CHIM (Michael Tse) for assistance, resulting in her taking part in an indecent proposal. Her boyfriend, TING KOON-FUNG (Ron Ng), breaks up angrily with her when he finds out about their affair. KWAN KA-WING (Him Law), the youngest of the four, prefers spending to saving and decides that he will in no circumstances help in the service of the mortgage. The family dream of buying a house turns out eventually to be a nightmare that never ends

大哥關嘉安(苗僑偉)為裝修判頭,妻子施朗翹(郭羨妮)為典型的家庭主婦,二人日夜勞碌只求一個安穩的家,但嘉安為救生意失敗的二弟關嘉康(梁烈唯)渡過難關,除了把置業計劃一推再推,朗翹亦受牽連做回上班族;三妹關嘉樂(鍾嘉欣)不忍加重大哥的負擔,唯求助上司高宏瞻(謝天華),孰料演變成一場不道德的交易,男友丁冠峰(吳卓羲)怒然提出分手。至於屬於「月光族」的四弟關嘉榮(羅仲謙)則不甘受束縛,寧願薪金月月清也不願承擔買樓的責任……最終,安居置業成了關家一場永不完結的惡夢。

    I only watched the first 3 episodes so far and the main thing I keep thinking is that I like Michael Tse with a little hair a lot more than his closely shaved hair look he has right now. haha. It’s cute so far, and Mandy’s character is really annoying!

    Also, this is like a mini E.U. reunion with Michael Miu, Laughing, and Ron!

  • Lala says:

    Yeah im liking this series.
    If i had to nip pick things…. I didnt like JJ even tho she only had like one line LOL she cant do anti social well will just have to see how she goes later on.
    I dont know if this is a good thing or bad i forever see Oscar (and Fred) as kids (late teens – early 20s) i know both are in 30s but they dont look it! So Oscar being paired with Mandy seems a little weird to me he makes her look older

    I love Ron and RoDa Best Couple

  • Domo says:

    does anyone knows where to watch this drama?

  • KTVB says:

    I’ve only seen bits and pieces of this drama. I was watching “Wish and Switch” instead though a few of my friends told me this is a bit better than Wish and Switch.
    From the scenes I’ve seen, Michael Miu’s character annoyed me and I felt sorry for Sonjia most of the time.

    I’ve also noticed the Linda, Michael Tse and Ron triangle. I thought Linda’s character was really dumb to “repay” Michael that way. I disliked watching how indecisive she was and it slightly reminded me of her character in MR when she was switching between boys. Other than the fact Michael tse was married, I liked how attentive etc he was to Linda compared to Ron who was just the extreme jealous type.

    And what a huge image change for Mandy Wong lol!

    • Ri says:

      I agree with you abt the Michael Tse part!! Aside from the fact that he was married (even though that’s a HUGE fact) he was by far way more likeable than Ron. He was so sweet to Linda, who I agree was an idiot for “repaying” him that way. Geez, Michael didn’t even force her!

      I watched the bulk of the series and I thought it was alright, but prolly because I expected it to be more silly and crazy and it actually turned out so serious (which is a good thing!) 🙂

  • aaron says:

    does anyone know the english translation for the theme song

  • Dorothy says:

    Ron is right when he tells linda that no one forced her to repay michael, it wasnt like he was holding a knife and making her do it

  • Emily Cheung says:

    In L’Escargot episode 11 at the end they were playing a song what was it called

  • ANGLE4 says:

    i want linda with ron!!!!
