Nadia Chan - Zing
Sharon Chan - Go Cheuk Kei (Choco)
Halina Tam - Lum Wai Zhi (Wing)

Plot:
The plot of this series is about Tin Long's hair salon. He is very famous for giving people good hair cuts. His girlfriend is Cheuk Kei who uses up a lot of his money for clothes and accessories that are not neccessities in today's society. She is a model who is trying to have a go at fame.

Zing fixes a lot of things and works at her father's boat shop. Zing is a good-hearted person but her father is quite short-tempered. Zing is a high school friend of Tin Long.

Zou Sing comes to the town that Tin Long lives in and moves into their house. Everyone seems to have their suspicions about him because of his father's past, especially Zing's father.

Wai Zhi tricks people for their money and falls for Zou Sing.

Comments:
Plot - The plot is too happy and the ending is basically told by the theme video and how the characters act in the series. I don't like the plot because it is much too predictable and it is definitely not as enjoyable as the predictable series 'Hidden Treasures'.

Cast:
Kevin Cheung - Fan Tin Long (Jason)
I think Kevin did well with this character because he went through some changes, although sometimes I think that the expressions on his face seem to be used over and over again. He has improved from 'Split Second'.

Nadia Chan - Zing
Nadia's character was too good to be true, which was a reason why I didn't like this series. She was too nice and I liked the way she was a good person but she seemed to be too unbelievable. I reckon that she should be given a much better role with more depth. She can be a nice character but she should be given more to work with rather than be everyone's helper all the time.

Sharon Chan - Go Cheuk Kei (Choco)
Sharon was great in this series even though she had lesser screen time. I think her character did show some changes, which was good, but unfortunately she was a main character in this series. I liked her acting abilities because she showed how much she loved Tin Long and how she changed from the beginning to the end.

Halina Tam - Lum Wai Zhi (Wing)
I loved Halina's performance! She is just too hilarious! I loved the way she was always following Zou Sing around and it obviously showed how much she cared about him. They made a sweet couple. I think that she provided a lot of comedic relief for this series because the plot was easily dull and boring.

Wayne Lai- Ho Zou Sing (Johnny)
I think Wayne was very funny in this series as well, especially when he was with Halina Tam. He acted fantastically and hopefully he will be in more series in the future.

Conclusion:
In conclusion this series is boring because of the predictability of the storyline. It was obvious what would happen at the end and this was seen in the first few episodes of the series. I reccommend it to anyone who likes Halina Tam and Wayne Lai because they were the only two people that kept me watching this series. They saved this series from a 1/5.
