    Wink King of Snooker

    I'm not sure if there is a thread for this series or not, if there is, please merge them for me

    Is anyone watching this series? I'm watching it with English sub and somewhat likes it. I'm in episode 4 now. I don't like that new guy with a bunch of moles on his face though, Patrick something

    Adam and Niki are father and daughter in this series. Adam was a professional snooker, he won many competitions but quit unexpectedly. He opened a restaurant called Cue Power and set up a very hand billiard game for people to solve. So far no one can solve it yet.

    Patrick played as this kid who doesn't worry about his family business but only focus on playing billiard. As a result, his family sweet soup shop was losing money due to his uncle. I really hate the guy that played as his cousin. I don't like Patrick's acting, there's so much pain on his face, he is so pitiful.

    Niki is really cute in here, she has a nice body. I think she has good chemistry with Adam, and the man that played as her uncle. She works under Joyce Tang.

    Joyce Tang played as Patrick's aunt, she's controlling and unreasonable some of the times, she just want to best for Patrick. I kinda like her character, very smart and independent. Well, after she caught her fiancee cheating and still haven't do anything about it, kinda make me dislike her.

    Derek Kwok is really suave and arrogant in here. He played billiard very good, not sure if he's going to be the villain or not. He likes to show off, and the guy that played as his manager had a funny looking wig. He was the same guy that played as Demolition Man in Catch Me Now.

    Somehow I see that Derek and Joyce had a cute chemistry, maybe it's because they are dating in real life? Well, rumors has it

    I actually quite like it,

    Currently watching episode 8.

    The new guy isn't all that good though.

    Wonder if there's an ada cheng effect on hang sheng when this came out?

    Yeah, the news came out right after the first episode aired in HK reporting over 600 point drop LMAO. But it has been rising steadily afterward

    Watched 6 episodes. Mainly because of Adam, who's alright. I enjoyed him and Joyce. And the snooker thing is okay I guess. At least I know the game a bit. So I could generally follow the action.

    But Patrick's character's just horrible. That kid comes off like a retard. I mean, isn't he suppose to be the main character? I can't even root for him because I just can't get over the fact that he has no redeeming characteristics.

    This series is worse than i originally thought.

    The out of this world snooker shots are quite unbelievable but the worst is the Patrick guy's performance.

    He can't act angry, he can't act sad, he can't act like he's in bliss. He can't act.

    You mean the Hero? I don't really familiar with Chinese actor/actress, but yeah, that guy is so ****ing bland with his acting. The way he changed from good to bad and good again is just not believable.

    However Derek Kwok just brimming with coolness in this show, I just can't believe he got defeated just like that in the semi final.

    Niki's uncle is played by Benz Hui.
    Derek's manager is Wilson Tsui (or known as Ai Wai).

    I'm not watching this series for Patrick Tang at all. I am more interest in the other actors and actresses of the series.

    No not hero. The Main lead, Patrick Tang, is too lame to be called the main hero of the story.

    Deric Wan is not in this series, but Derek Kwok is.
