The opening theme song is awesome. I didn't recognize the leading lady as the wife in Ip Man with Donnie Yen. She's also dating Aaron Kwok.

I started watching it today. I'm on the 3rd episode. I think there is only 4 so far. I totally agree. Opening theme song is awesome. And Vaness Wu looks so cute.

I watched the first two episodes but I had to pass this one up. This one not really for me right now maybe later. I don't know why but I love to see Vaness Wu in mean bad boy roles.
Now watching: Need to find some new dramas

Well, this is my first Tdrama (I normally just watch kdramas), but I really like it!! Van ness' opening theme song for it is so awesome. I don't think it will be anything epic or tear jerking, which is fine with me, I just want a laid back drama that's enjoyable.

Ratings are not looking stella for this drama. I guess Lynn Hung isn't as popular as Ady is. I do like her in this drama. I also like the opening theme change in ep. 6. Makes me look forward to the coming episodes.

I keep count of Asian dramas I watch. Chinese, I have started 25 and finished 5. The last of those five is Material Queen - it's also my favourite. The story is nothing revolutionary, but the lead couple is adorable and the look of the drama, the colours, the camera work, the clothes, the accessories, the hairdos... Everything is so beautiful or so strange, right? Not to mention the music...
