- 35 episodes long.
- The theme of the series talks about multi-generational relationships. There is family warmth and the topic of values.
- The theme is similar to "Iceman Cometh". The genre is fantasy. People of different generations have different morals, ethics, and values. A person from the 1940s, who was frozen and is not thawed out until 2018, has to adapt to the modern living environment, creating a lot of jokes and having a lighthearted side.
- Carlos Chan was experimentally frozen during the war of resistance against Japan; after getting thawed out in the modern times, he reunites with his son, John Chiang, and his grandson, Wayne Lai.
- Wayne will play a negative person who is facing a lot of societal pressure (work, economic, family, etc.), so he learns about feng shui. He and Elvina are husband and wife; they have a ten-year-old son.
- Patricia Ha will play Yung Chi Kiu (翁芷蕎), a star who has retired for many years and has left Hong Kong. She later goes into business. Later, she returns and has become a mysterious wealthy person. Her personality is rather bold, and her ideas are different from the average person. She is elegant, mysterious, and beautiful. When she was younger, she was a star who captivated everyone; however, her luck as a star was mediocre, and her career in the performing arts was unsuccessful. She has a cool and elegant appearance, but she is gentle on the inside. She has always longed for genuine love but has suffered setbacks in her love life. In addition, the matter of becoming an unwed mother of a daughter made her a selfish and possessive person. Experiencing ups and downs in life made her believe in fortune-telling. By chance, she meets Brunei royalty who falls in love with her and teaches her about investments, making her become a wealthy woman. After this, she becomes calculative about everything. When she returns to Hong Kong, for fame and fortune, her friends turn their backs on her. When she is basically left with nothing, her hidden maternal instincts make her cherish the familial love with her daughter even more. She and her elder sister, Chi Lan (芷蘭), rely on each other, having toiled all day to make a living when they were younger. When she was 18 years old, she successfully entered the entertainment industry as an actor, but she could not become popular, and everything was not turning out the way that she had wanted. In addition, her elder sister could not be depended on, rather having to constantly be taken care of by her, so her life back then became more and more stressful.
- Lin Xia Wei will play Aki Chong Si San (庄司·晨), who is of Chinese and Japanese parentage. She and Carlos are a pair. Patricia is her aunt.
- Elvina will play a positive person. She is a Shanghainese girl. She is Wayne's wife. Her mother is Helen Ma.

Personal Note: Thought that Carlos would be playing a supporting role....
Lin Xia Wei no longer playing Patricia's daughter, or is there some kind of birth secret storyline?
