My Comments: Before I watched this series, I was anticipating for it alot. But it kinda disapointed me a little. It was as good as i thought but I still kinda liked it though. I thought the ending wasn't that good. Especially where Kate changes her mind in the last episode, in the train station. Don't you think that was a bit too quick? Guess they didnt have much time to film more? But they could of cut some useless scenes, like how that lady was gonna give birth and suddenly the lift stopped. That scene for stopping the lift was COMPLETELY useless. They should of cut it off, they weren't important characters anyway. But still, I enjoyed watching this series, it was just the last bit I didn't quite like, the rest are okay. I actually like watching Elaine and Chris more, they were more a funny couple, I was going to screencap every single of their scene coz I liked most but couldn't be bothered since internet is super slow.
Main Cast Thoughts:
Kenneth Ma: Kenneth did great, I like him more and more, this character was better than others he had. The other characters he had before wasn't likeable, not counting SL2.
Kate Tsui: I used to kinda dislike Kate, but now I think she's okay. I don't hate or like her. Though she's more in my okay list. Looking forward to see her in Moonlight Resonance, she's gonna be evil, haven't seen her evil before.
Elaine Yiu: I enjoyed watching Elaine LOT! She and Chris was funny! But then I didn't really like Elaine's character in the beginning, that she likes people that are rich. But her character was still cute.
Chris Lai: He was okay, really liked him and Elaine, he acts quite funny sometimes...
Least Favorite Character: Stephen (Herbert)
Couple: Kate & Kenneth (The Double 'K')
