FYI: The official English title of this series is "Short End of the Stick".
FYI: Ada Choi was originally cast as the female lead; however, due to schedule problems, Nancy Wu has taken her place, while Lin Xia Wei has taken Nancy's original role.
Personal Note: Rice business again?!
Nancy's look reminds me of Chiu Yuk from "The Dance of Passion".
Lin Xia Wei always the last-minute replacement....
