Jerry Yeo did a great job, as proven by his winnings as the Ultimate Baddie..
Songqing doesn't play a big role here either, his role is quite redundant.. what does a Prince of Cakes have to do with the gambling theme? Other than he is Songqiao's brother and he likes Sun Min, there's nothing of importance to his role.
Also, I feel Songqiao and Chaoqun's relationship was underdeveloped. Why did she fall for him so quickly? It was not explained. Although I liked her and Sun Jie together, the sudden entrance of Chaoqun's character creating a love square was a bit strange.
Li Nanxing and Zoe Tay, being veterans, did an awesomely great performance. Felicia Chin and Zhang Zhenhuan have much to improve on, but many people/fans and non-fans comment that Felicia is doing a better job, showing much improvement in her expressions, but with some slight over-exaggerations. Li Nanxing was more impressive as Zhang Feng, unfortunately we do not see enough of Zhang Feng other than flashbacks and final few episodes, and it is not explained thoroughly of his disappearance, and his disappearance at the final episode..
Lin Meijiao's character was a different one, she played a pitiful and weak character this time, not of much screen time, but did a good job.
How many dramas have there been with Chen Shucheng in them, I wonder. Well, I cannot imagine Zhu Houren in this role, however. He might look strange with spectacles, as he does in MY Buddy. I can't imagine him as a lecher or a casanova who raped an employee in his 20's. =D
I'm looking forward to more Zoe-Nanxing pairings tho'
wished zhang feng had more screen time
Couldn't disagree on your post. Brilliant viewpoints.
I do agreeeeee that the ending is bland. Please, they can do better than this. I really miss the old days, TCS dramas were really great back then.
