Personal Note: Too bad the news clips didn't focus much on the series itself.... o_O'

When the Chinese title of this series was revealed, knew that Maggie and Moses would be portraying an 'older wife and younger husband' relationship, but still quite difficult to digest the fact that Moses will be playing a much younger character than Maggie.

  1. Having Moses & Maggie play older woman-younger man couple is ridiculous! Just as bad as Kiki playing Roger's mom... Hopefully they change that detail in the series. Otherwise, they'll have a hard time convincing me why they couldn't cast a younger actor in the role.

  2. LOL I'm really wondering if they'll use CAllStar's 天梯 as the themesong! Kinda disappointed that they picked Moses to act as the role. He looks about the same age as Maggie not much younger =/ I love the song and the true story but looking at the cast I really don't feel like watching it =/

  3. Why can't they cast a younger actor for the role? Raymond Lam, Raymond Wong, Ruco Chan, Bosco Wong, Ron Ng, etc. I have nothing against Moses, but I think he's way too old for the character. Maybe the writers will change the script up a bit.

  4. Watch the serie first before commenting. Maybe they will pick a younger actor to play the 19 year old Lo Kok Kong and Moses only play the adult part. I have faith in Tim Gor and I believe this serie will be a wonderful one.

    We're talking about the adult part of course. There's no visible 6 years difference between Maggie and Moses. Why don't Tim Gor cast someone younger? Ruco? Raymond Lam? Bosco? Raymond Wong? Ron? Kenneth?

  6. Ok I love the love story with the manmade stairs as well as C Allstar's song dedicated to the couple, but what do they have to do with this drama, just because Moses are Maggie will be playing the whole May-December love affair? I'm disappointed with the choice of Moses as the lead because he does not look younger than Maggie at all. A younger actor should've been chosen and given the chance. TVB needs to start 'training' more 2nd leads into siu sang and fa dans because they are going down...

    CAllStar's song is a wonderful song but the melody is rather modern to be used as a themesong for a premodern series, so I think the chance of that happening is slim.
