I agree with 2socks that this drama is deeply psychological and may not be everyone's cup of tea but sukting review, while gives a decent description of each character and a lengthy summary he/she failed to express the complication that lies within Hoi Yee's relationship with her mother, Kum Ling, which drove her to insanity. Firstly, Kum Ling was a very unfit mother who neglected her daughter while growing up. From the countless accusations from Kum Ling that Hoi...

I agree with 2socks's review. This drama is deeply rooted in phychology and character development, hence not every audience can swallow it. Acting wise, I think Maggie interpreted her character very well. Wai Hoi Yee is one of her best performance.

There are some inaccuracies with this review. To be fair, this is a drama that's a bit hard to understand. I didn't really like it when I watched it the 1st time when it came out but I've recently rewatched it and is able to appreciate it better.
The premise of the story is heavily based on psychology and how behaviours are determined by antecedents which shape the consequences. To understand each characters' behaviours and development, it's important to understand their background. The HoiYee-KumLing hatred is not unrealistic having taken their background and history into account.
HoiYee is exactly like her mother but she doesn't want to admit it; and KumLing finally realises her impact on her daughter but found out only too late. Hence, she's willing to commit suicide. Or one can say she's too cowardly to face the consequences.
The ending is semi-open because it ends with Bo walking away with Nok not remembering anything but he did have a flashback of writing "Bo loves Yee" on page 666 of the novel 'Love between 2 Countries". So the question: would/does he remember?
This is best watched in its original language (cantonese) as the translation/subtitle doesn't quite deliver the impact. It's too bad both Deric and Maggie's popularity started downhill after this.
Btw, I found Amy's portrayal of YuNok quite similar to her character in Greed of Man.
