    I love this series. the raymond wong and Nancy interaction is amazing they have awesome chemistry and looks so good together. but its sad to know they won’t end up together based on the themesong and all the trailers i watched. It’s great to watch Raymond W. as a baddy again cuz he gets to shine xP love nancy wu here she finally gets a main lead female role instead of a second fiddle role that gets pushed aside by newbies and other people who can’t act. I was also surprised and liked grace and sisley’s acting they are both very natural in acting and can actually speak fluently unlike cough cough (no offense eliza sam). grace actually has a lot of charisma. Sisley was also good and she is a lot prettier than in pictures. Looking forward to each episode! this is a must watch!

      I was also pleasantly surprised by Grace’s acting. I’ve only watched 3 episodes and it seems very comedic compared to the seriousness of the theme song. It’ll probably get heavy soon…
