Damian Lau feels that no one can play Idy Chan’s character, her own temperament and with many years of experience, her charisma and the way she treats everything neutrally, just like making wine, it won’t come out right on day one. It’s hard to maintain such valuable acting and temperament in Idy after in the industry so long, Idy is quite rare, she can give the audience of such attitude and her true personal.

Damian also revealed a little secret that in real life he experienced the similar love story of Idy’s and Ben Wong’s, the two of them truly loved each other. Unfortunately the chance missed, the timing was wrong, and eventually the feeling subsided. He joked that his own story is more intense, so keep tuning in the later part of the drama to find out.

    According to the review week 6, YF will loose a leg. Oh, no, I can’t believe they do it to Idy. Why she has to end up like that? Why makes her life more miserable

    Ep.25 – A moment of Romance
    -Mother and brother Yee Hei stopped by Chung’s mansion early in the morning to ask for Yee Yin since she hasn’t visited them for a while, coincidentally YY told the maid that she went out early, but the maid told them she’s not feeling well and resting the room, and that made Arthur believed that YY’s lying
    -YY wandered the street with deep thoughts and flashback on argument with A telling her free to leave anytime. Luckily Yat Fai caught her before she’d fell. She thanked him for helping YHei, and he asked her to have a meal together but she declined, yet agreed to have a walk with him.
    -YY exclaimed how beautiful the sunset was, YF asked YY questions but he already knew the answers, and he did most of the talking
    “Have you thought of leaving?”
    “You have decided to stay to prove to A that there’s nothing between us”
    “Or you felt that you owed him too much”
    “No, No, it’s not like that”
    “Actually because you love him dearly, am i right?” (YY “I’m sorry”)
    “Don’t be sorry to me. Love can’t be controlled. I totally understand. I’ve stayed behind because I wanted to take care of you, but I realized that the longer I stay, the more it bothered you. I’ll leave, I’ll go back to England. I was just a poor rickshaw boy, went to San Francisco, experienced near-death and become alive again, worked hard to be successful with fame and fortune, but these are not what I really want most. Did you know, there’s a highest mountain in England called Ben Nevis, I would love to come there to see the sunset, I’ve wanted for a long time now. The ship will depart at 5pm this Friday. If there’s someone willing to fulfill this wish with me, I’ll wait for her”
    -YY confided with 4 that she met YF, and 4 supported whatever decision YY made as long as she’s happy
    -Jimmy bribed the maid to get information from YY’s maid on the talk btw YY and 4. J told A that YY was with YF
    -YF entrusted his business to YH. A went to YF’s office and told him to stay away from YY
    -YY attended the family’s breakfast to everyone’s surprise and 1 asked how she dressed nicely, YY said she’d go out for an art exhibition
    -J wondered why A wasn’t worry about YY going out
    -YF pulled the rickshaw for YY the last time and said how their fate began with the rickshaw and they bid farewell… [hic]
    -On the way back, YY met A on the street, and suggested to have a talk, A told her he still hurts and YY wanted them to have a fresh start. He asked her where did she go and she told him ask no more and trust her sincerity.
    -YF’s leg was severely injured and the doctor recommended to amputate it…
    -The policeman told Charles that A beat up YF…

    Thanks for recap

    Even with daddy’s nonstop smacking, the punishment is too light to do the justice for YF, poor guy, and YY has to suffer too. A should turn his son in and the dude should be charged…

    November 27th, 2012 at 12:37 PM

    So, that dude will get away for criminal charge? I doubt it @><@

    I actually had a chance to re-watch the parts of YF and YY. They were so nice, cute and believable. Ben acted as PRO and I truly felt his heart which belonged only to YY.

    At this moment, I wish they are together.

    on Weibo, ep.25 received lots of praises for its climax and performance of the cast, not only by fans but also well-received by other artists. I myself also commented on Ben’s photo of the sunset scene, he responded back with a “smooch” hahaha – what a nice man! Both Ben and Damian complimented each other on their scene as well as their artist colleagues. Ben also made many comments on his scenes with Idy’s and their bittersweet parting.

    I don’t see any scene in previews showing Jimmy got arrested, so daddy just grounded the dude. And the game is really over between Yee Yin and Arthur…

    So, will YY divorce or leave him on 26? Too early if she does go to England.

    Ep.26 – Forbidden room
    So Yat Fai lost a leg, Yee Yin lied at the police station that she didn’t remember that she was with Arthur on the evening YF was attacked. YY to A “Why? Why? You scold me, you hate me, you can do whatever to me, now you made him handicapped, I didn’t know you’re that jealous, you’re so cruel, why did I marry you (A “So you really believe that I attacked your old lover, and you lied to the police for retribution”) I really wanted to start fresh with you, I’m just so naive (“I’m so disappointed”), I’m more disappointed in you, you planned the whole thing” [there’s a couple lines I didn’t get…] “You get out… I don’t want to see you no more” (“Starting today, you won’t get to see me anymore. You have to stay within this room to reflect, think carefully on how importance I’m, I’ll tell the servants to keep their eyes on you, taking care of your meals, don’t even think of leaving this room half a step.”) Then A forbids the rest of the family to have any contacts with YY…

    Damn A, the deeper the love, the stronger the hate, yet two smacks are nothing to you. where’s the fairness, where’s the justice while both you and your son are lawyers? So YY is now put under house arrest and in isolation. Good thing that 4 and Ho Yee still care… But another problem has arrived, Muk Shui (Ron) has now entered the house… can’t wait to see how he’ll stir up the whole family… kakaka [my evil laugh]

    A won’t sign the divorce paper and won’t let YY go easily like that. He’d emotionally torture her, and psychologically drain her wellbeing first. Rumored that she won’t leave until ep.38. While 4 character has become more likeable, it’s still difficult for me to watch her and Charles’ wife, this girl really needs more training. They just don’t get my votes regardless of how nice their roles are.

    Yeah, too many yelling and fighting between YY & A. Who the hell he thought he was that he could order her to stay in the room like that.

    Well, I wish she told the truth.

    The stupid son had sex with servant, good for him and got off to easy.

    November 29th, 2012 at 1:02 AM

    For sure 26 & 27 picked up some pace. I can’t believe the whole family started to fall apart by 2nd stupid son action.

    I started to like 4 little now.

    November 29th, 2012 at 2:20 AM

    Yup – the drama has already reached its climax. Both Yee Yin and Yat Fai are the ones who suffer most. I’ve only flipped through Ep.27 but looked like YY told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth at the court so Arthur got acquitted. Yee Hei asked YY to visit YF because he’s suicidal. YY was so distressed that YF already lost a leg, can’t loose his life too, and if YF died, A would become a murderer, so 4 came up with a plan to get YY out of the house by collecting old clothes to donate to the church. Man… this scene reminded me so much of when Princess Lan Ling tried to get inside the palace, but this time Princess YY tried to get out of that cold mansion. I really hope there’s still justice in the end that the culprit get punished.

    It was so sad to see YY cried so much lately. If she told the truth, then why A did not share the truth with her to make her to understand him.

    He would not turn in the culprit son anyway.

    Just not make sense the story at all.

    Next few episode, the control freak will sleep with the 5th girl….it is suck.

    November 29th, 2012 at 4:47 AM

    So what happened with the paper YY gave A at the dinner table? Was it a divorce paper?

    A said she could leave any time, but the jealous A did stop her truly when she really wanted to leave…urggggggg…. what a pity man!

    • #
      November 29th, 2012 at 5:35 AM

      Yup – it’s divorce paper, but selfish A wanted to keep her because he can’t have her, no one can. YY said someday he’ll have to sign it anyway. There’s no excuse for him to sleep around, but it seemed that if he’s upset with any wives he really loved, he did that. He deserves to be… castrated to become an eunuch, bring him back to the Qing Dynasty, and have Prince YH order this good deed… kakaka

    The 1st and 4th cared about the divorce. A yelled at 3 for some reasons

    Now every wives has distance from him.

    I disappoint by A did not let YY know the truth

    Then let her made her own decision

  18. #
    November 29th, 2012 at 11:18 PM

    Ep.27 – A forbid Jimmy from explaining anything, if he turned J in, his career would be ruined. So basically, A chose to be blinded and not knowing anything. He’s just a selfish jackass, while arrogantly came to YY’s room before the trial and told her, it didn’t matter to him whatever she’d said in the court, because he never loose any case. To me, he basically made YY to feel bad, while he’s protecting himself and J.

    Also when YY asked him to sign the divorce paper, he was so damn lame to say that he didn’t have the time to read it, and tore it off and said he’d sign when he’s in better mood.

    And he’s a “ridiculous” jerk when he scolded 3. 3 was asking which room he’d spent the night because she and 4 already had a deal. This is, if she had the Women’s Club backing the establishment of Anti-Slavery, 4 needed to be considerate of others by sharing A too. A went to 4 and said it’s his decision which room he’d go every night, not the wives. Poor 3.

    Thanks for recap.

    I wish ALL the wives leave him. I actually feel bad as he treated 3 and might be happier if she has MORE boyfriends out there to hang out with.

    He truly is a control freak now I know why his sons and 1st wife can’t say anything.

    Ep.28 – I only watched YY’s parts and flipped through the rest
    -It’s really moving that YY was willing to die with YF. “I’m no longer YF” (YY “Even though you lost a leg, but in my heart you’re still the same”) “Not the same at all, you’re already someone’s wife, what am I? I’m a disabled, I’m dead or alive is not your business, just go away!” (“If you really want to die, I’ll grant it, you and I will die together”) “NO, NO, I don’t want you to die with me, I only want you to be happy, don’t you know?” (“I owe you too much… please don’t die”) “OK, I promise you, no matter how difficult the road ahead, I’ll go on, please please!”
    -A called home in the morning to tell 1 that he won’t be home for breakfast [of course, he already had a huge meal last night], and no need to confine YY anymore.
    -But YY grounded herself. She just wanted to be left alone and doesn’t want to associate with anyone else anymore, or else they would be harmed just like YF.

    So A totally ignored J and 3 and they become drinking buddies… 3 was still sober enough to wonder if Muk Shui’s really dumb or just pretending. Too bad, A is just too jealous of what’s going on btw YF and YY to realize the real threat…

    No YY in Ep.29, so I’m done watching this week’s eps.
