Yay! Are you watching this?! I just started and I like it so far. 

 

I am indeed. Up to Episode 10 already. 

It's still pretty good.

Luo Xiang got his tattoo removed just to get it tattooed again on him. :lmao2:

 

Li Yifeng is essentially playing three characters: Luo Xiang, Chen Mo, and Chen Mo pretending to be Luo Xiang. :BulbaConfused:

 

I'm up to episode 6 now.

@40somethingahjumma, how are you liking it so far? I feel like some parts are getting a bit redundant and I wished the pacing was a bit quicker in some parts. 

 

I really enjoyed the father/daughter conversation in episode 14 -- where A'Xi tells Luo Xiang that she just miss her dad. They are cute together and I hope we see more of their interactions.

@TofuI'm only up to Episode 12. Lots of distractions. It's the sort of show you really have to pay attention to. 

I don't mind it at all -- but it's causing me to have serious trust issues. Everyone has their own agenda and secrets. There are plenty of twists and turns so there's definitely an element of unpredictability.

 

A Xi is great. It's always a bonus to have a cute kid in the picture. It's still a mystery though where he picked her up from. She can't be his biological daughter surely. The landlady... I don't know why she's even in the show. I remember the actress from My Bargain Queen. Not likeable there and still not likeable here.

 

I particularly like Song Yi's character although she's not in it as much as I expected.

 

I didn't realise that Stephen Fung is a really famous HK director.

This is me watching every episode ---> :BulbaConfused:

 

I don't know who is good or bad anymore. I have serious trust issues with every character. Haha! I am happy that the police officer who tried to save Yu Shenghai is a good cop. I was a little frustrated when Cai Zhiming told him that he was also a bad cop. I was beginning to lose hope in all humanity at this point. I'm glad Cai Zhiming was lying -- they really need someone who's good in this drama.

I'm not exactly sure what her role is besides maybe taking care of A'Xi for Luo Xiang? 

 

In-between the craziness of the entire drama, I absolutely love this father/daughter duo. :heart:
