I watched this series a long time ago, and i forgot what that familys name was xD
but at the end, almost everyone in the family had bad endings, like ron died, shirley is like handicaped? the father died, the other son suicide, and the mother went to jail and mentally insane, quite sad ending id say o.O but i think this series was okay ;D

If you ask me if the story was good, I'd have to say bravo! However, I do think the acting do need a bit of improving. The chemistry between Ron and Kate was lacking some emotion. They are able to give you the feeling that it is sweet, but at the same time it would make you think "So what?". They need some watery eyes and change the tones to their voice to make it more convincing. This goes for Steven and Bernice, TOO FAKE!
One of the female actors in this series who really surprised me was Michelle Yim, EXCELLENT job. She brought the very essence of the bitter-sweet villain in to it. Watching some of her actions and facial expressions gave her the grasp to tension among the series. Everytime something happens just from looking at her movements you can already expect something was going to happen. Again excellent job MIchelle, sent chills down my spine. Now do not hate me yet, I am not quite done yet. Overall I do think everyone did a good job considering how many actors there lacked experience in acting and there are so many gaps and holes for them to fill along the way in this career. So GOOD JOB everyone, Can't wait for another opportunity to watch these teams of actor in another drama.

This series is very fast-paced, especially the beginning. But i was quite shocked that ron ng died in the end.

It's stupid when most people died in this series.

Bernice and Steven did well in this series.
