From watching the first five episodes, I know I am not going to like this series. It’s hard for me to enjoy it considering my major complaint goes to the female lead, Myolie. Her character “Chow Chow” is ridiculously annoying and gets on my nerves because she talks so much nonsense! Everything she says or does annoys me. It’s like she has to care about everything when it is none of her business and is constantly yelling at Gallen when she doesn’t know the full story. She acts like she knows everything. She is so nosy that she has to care about everything and also makes decision for people without asking what people really want. For example, letting Benz into Gallen’s house after he entrusted her with his house keys. Who does she think she is? I hope her boyfriend (played by Raymond Wong) will dump her soon 😛 I don’t even know if her character is supposed to be this annoying or if it’s Myolie’s acting. If its just her character I hope she changes soon because I can’t stand watching her..
Myolie’s acting is also very exaggerated and over the top. The way she gets revenge on Gallen is immature as well. Basically her character is not very likable. I feel that her character isn’t very genuine either. Because she felt sorry for “Dai Ba”(a dog), stranded on the streets, she brings the dog home causing all the dogs at her father’s training/breeding ground to die from a disease. I have doubts that it was “Dai Ba” who spread the virus but that’s not my point. It was because of this that made Myolie’s father hate dogs that are left on the streets, and now works as part of the dog exterminating team and captures those types of dogs. It was Myolie’s fault but is still working against her father. She apologises, admitting it was her fault, saying she felt bad that her father got hurt etc, but I can’t feel that she really cares about him. She cares about the dogs more than her father. On one hand she apologizes, yet later when alone with her brother, she puts the blames on the owner of “Dai Ba” who abandoned him. She is not taking responsibility for her own fault. Before she brought the dog back, why didn’t she take the dog to a vet for a checkup? Or to get any immunization? She should know more clearly than anyone else before taking a dog back to keep…
Ok..enough about Myolie. So..if I don’t like Myolie, what part of the series do I watch it for? Gallen of course! =) I like his character a lot and find his methods in dealing with matters interesting and entertaining to watch, whether at work or in his private life. Sure he appears cold on the outside but there must be a background reason to it, so I am interested in learning more about that. (A lot revealed in episode 5) The story behind hating “Siu Ba”(dog) also seemed interesting. He loves his cat “Cancan” a lot and we learn that his fiancee played by Tracy Ip gave it to him. They used to own “Da Ba” but Tracy tragically dies in a traffic accident trying to chase “Dai Ba” and after that, Gallen abandons the dog. I love the interaction he has with the dog “Siu Ba” and the cat XD Whether he is being nice or mean to them, it’s good to watch because the bonding is evident =) xD
The other thing I would have to comment on is the dog and cat lol They’re quite cute and entertaining to watch. I often find myself amazed at how well they are trained for the series haha.. Ok some of the dubbing sounds cheezy (they remind me of Cantonese dubbing of anime characters XD) but if you don’t watch the series too seriously then its all good 🙂
Is anyone watching this series at the moment? Anyone finding “Chow Chow” as annoying as I do? Does anyone else feel like giving up on this series? Isn’t Moonlight Resonance so much more exciting? 😛
