    Looking back, Lawrence actually didn't do such a bad job. ZWJ was supposed to be boring and confused. Lawrence did look very tired and haggard, but in terms of acting, he wasn't that bad. I still think Gigi is a miscast - talks too much and too fast. Charmaine was okay. Aftre all this time (and puking while watching Zhang Tie Lin as Yeung Siu), my perception of Eddie as Yeung Siu has totally changed and I have to crown Eddie as the best Yeung Siu ever. Coco Sun cried too much whereas Eddie was able to show the sorrow and regret of Yeung Siu in a very manly charasmatic way without crying every 10 mins. He and Joyce actually look every good together, even as father and daughter.

    I actually still hate the CGI effects but at least it is more visible than the recent effects I have seen. The themesong by Lawrence is actually quite nice and the lyrics are compatible.

    Compared to 1979 or 1986 version, this version pales. But compared to later versions, it is actually quite a good production.
    I actually thought both Sun xing and Eddie did a very good job as Yeung Siu. You can feel their sorrow and regret. I thought Newton Lai was good too. I do not remember much about the 1979 or the 2003 one. I remember at the time, a lot of people dislike Kathy Chow after the 93 version because her character was so evil.

    In the 2000 version, Yin Li was Cherie Chan, Xiao Zhao was Liz Kong.

    Now Liz Kong as XZ rings a bell. Actually, as I have noted elsewhere, XZ was always a minor role to me until I joined spcnet.

    Realized that this is not the song sang by Xiao Zhao. Strangely to-date, I have yet to find the song sang by XZ in this series.

    The lyrics: https://baike.baidu.com/item/%E6%B5%...A2%A6/23343645
    展放愁容 休争闲气
    今日容颜 老于昨日
    浮生若梦 难逃那日
    愁容一朝 一朝便宜
    展放愁容 休争闲气
    今日容颜 老于昨日
    浮生若梦 难逃那日
    愁容一朝 一朝便宜

    The translation to English:
    Sorrowful
    Today looks older than yesterday
    If you can't escape the dream that day
    Sadness is always cheap
    Sorrowful
    Today looks older than yesterday
    If you can't escape the dream that day
    Sadness is cheaper all the time
