My Comments: This series is actually quite good to me. First time I saw the picstures, I thought this series might be a little boring, but it actually ended up good. I think this series is quite meaningful. It's really like telling you how a preson's life is. It's really 'A Journey Called Life'! The English name is named right! The chinese one is....I don't know...It's followed by Kent's name in the series. It's really telling us a story, like for example, everyone has made mistakes in their life, just like Sze Ka Ka (Linda) she's been a bad girl but she has changed in the end and for Steven, he's a good guy in there but there are also things that he needs to face, just like how her daughter died and then Fala, her sister died, both at the same time. But luckily, he standed back up again.
Main Cast Thoughts:
Steven Ma: He improved, I started to like him a little after watching 'The Gentle Crackdown II' since he improved in that one too, but he's also good in this one. He plays a reallynice guy in the series, I guess a lot of girls wants that type of guy, but thoseones are more simple.
Linda Chung: Linda greatly improved too, she improved her crying scenes and etc. Even in the other series she's been in, she wasn't that good but in this one, she's better! She's entered my top favourite list! I really like her hair when she has turned back good, how she moves her fringe to the side, it looks really pretty!
Kent Cheng: HAHA, he's quite funny in the series, He keeps calling his son, 'Bad Boy' and all these stuff he says are funny, eg. he says 'brain moving' or something but in chinese and 'super dumb' or something, its really funny. Guess the dircetor told him to say those, not really his own language maybe.
Fala Chen: Fala totally improved too, her evil kinda role was well done. Though I dont really like her role, but she need well. Keep Going Fala! In this kinda story, Fala's role suits it, telling us how life is...
