Personal Note: Natalie is playing an 18-year-old?! o_O

Anyway, Nancy's role seems interesting; hope that it is not only written well but also given sufficient screen time.

Also, Selena looks great! :)

  1. "She will get beaten by Kevin Cheng."
    Wait.. so is this saying Kevin hits Selena?

    and is Nancy paired up with anyone here?

  2. this is such a new and different idea, and all the characters seems pretty interesting...selena is going to be beaten by kevin...by 'beaten' as in physially beating her up?! O.o...that's intense..and natalie playing a 18 year old is sort of hard to believe...she looks young, but not that young! hahah hopefully it'll be a good series cause i'm mostly interesting cause of kevin and raymond lol

  3. Actually most happy that Selena will at least have some romance scenes with Edwin! Loved Selena & Edwin in the Liza series with such a long name. haha.

  4. Nancy's role definitely stands out. Kinda similar to Fala in MR. Selena looks good. Not too thrilled about Natalie. I'm glad TVB is creating new pairs!

  5. Selena's blue sweater reminds me of Tavia's during Yes Sir No Sir costume fitting =)

    Hmm...I really like the sound on Nancy's role =) wonder who's she's going to pair up with....

  6. That means Selena is the female lead since she pair with Kevin yay.

    Nancy's role does sounds interesting.

  7. argh...natalie in it is soooo spoiling....hate it to see her in this film. was expecting it, but now >.< started to hate it

  8. Selena looks good in this, hope this will be a lead and breakthrough role for her =] I'm happy to hear that she'll have a romantic storyline with Edwin, I like them as a pair =]

    Ya, I don't really like Kevin, Natalie or Nancy =S
    Same here, my first reaction, Natalie acting as an 18 year-old o_0?!

  9. to LynneD.

    Nancy has a love storyline with Power.
    Florence and Kenny are husband-wife
    Raymond's ex-girlfriend is Catherine

  10. i really wish that nancy's role will stand out ! just like how fala's did in MR. and yea, hope she has more screentime too!

  11. I'm very happy that Selena is the female lead here. She's starting to get more and more first female lead roles. I do hope this year will be a time for her to shine and get recognized. :)

  12. Hope Selena's role is as 'fierce' as Cat in FH2!
    Natalie is back to her typical spoil brat role. Anyway any more information?? So little is known compared to other series.

  13. Selena's video is in Natalie's blog by the way.

  14. To be honest, I've no good expectation for this series. The story/theme still doesn't sound interesting to me. Hope the outcome will surprise me (in a positive way).

  15. And so strange that Chow Chung plays Raymond's father, he should play his grandfather instead. He's like 20 years older than Angelina's generation ?!

  16. To AC:

    It will be one scene in which Kevin Cheng hits Selena (it should be one punch).

    To Tracy:

    Actually, the pairings in here are not new, as Kevin Cheng and Selena were paired up in "The Seventh Day", Raymond and Natalie were paired up in "A Watchdog's Tale", and Power and Nancy were paired up in "Lost in the Chamber of Love". However, these pairings are not paired up often.

    To LynneD.:

    Selena's blue jacket does resemble the one that Tavia wore at the fitting of "Sir"; however, Selena has more buttons on hers.

    To Elise:

    Selena said that this career woman will be different, as she will have a weak side to her such that she will be very fragile in the relationship department.

    To lizzy:

    Saw Selena's clip in Natalie's blog...waiting to see if they'll eventually put it back into Selena's blog.

  17. duh, was hoping for nancy and raymond, blah, natalie, spoil the fun

  18. Wow, Nancy has a real interesting role in here. She has to fight and learn sign language! Anticipating her role!

    Saw her pictures in her Weibo and she has many bruises on her leg.

    I think Selena's hair is too long to pull off the professional look. A trim would be better, but still love the fact that she is first female lead.

  19. In the wikipedia page it says that Michelle Ye is in it, is that true?

  20. To Anonymous:

    No, Michelle Ye is not in this series. Wikipedia is not a reliable source, since it can be edited by anyone.
