Between Love & Desire

Let’s say that this series was decent. Considering how I haven’t been back to watch TVB series for a while. I wanted to dive in because of the three main cast. There were mixed feelings since the beginning, especially how they decided to craft a certain character.

Main Cast:

  • Moses Chan as Hugo. This role was somewhere in the middle and I’m talking about the level of intensity comparing to his past roles. Yet I felt Moses did well. He didn’t disappoint. He was stubborn at the beginning and somewhat arrogant (because of his reputation in the field). I half-expected him to be the villain and Ben would be the actual hero. However, it flipped around and proved that things weren’t what it appeared. The background story helped his character heaps and made sense as to why he had become that way. Yet he had gone too far. In a way, he was still the same guy inside, but he was just using the professional front as an excuse for some of the sticky cases he was involved in. He managed to find a balance at the end, which wasn’t unbelievable.
  • Maggie Siu as Rebecca. I read some comments about how some people felt like Maggie’s character was too boring or had no entertainment value. I will say, yes, if you were looking for an overly dramatic performance or plot. To me, it was just right. Sure, there was intensity after her mother died and how she had to continue on, but the majority of her thoughts afterward were going back to stability or not that “exciting” like some people would put. However, I think it was suitable for her character, because she wasn’t a young girl anymore, unlike Roxanne’s character–who was still full of energy and innocence. Not to compare both women but I felt it was necessary in this case–since they were indeed at different points of their lives. Rebecca’s personality and reactions to matters (even if she was upset) was different from how Haley would react and let’s face it, it fitted with their age. I was glad the writer(s) and director(s) didn’t let Maggie go all jumpy like some young girl, because that would be too much. (I must say I wasn’t too thrilled with some of Maggie’s past trying to be cheerful ones like in When Heaven Burns at one point.) Flashbacks didn’t count in here since I know TVB was seriously cheap, trying to not cast an additional actress for a younger Rebecca (or even a younger version of Hugo).
  • Ben Wong as Patrick. Whose bright idea was it to make Patrick so hateful for the majority of the series and then turned it into a goofy character? I don’t know. It was hard not to hate him because of how he tagged Rebecca throughout and tried to jump in when she was the most vulnerable. (It was like perfect timing for him or something, but I was so glad Rebecca never caved in, regardless of how it turned out with her and Hugo.) I would prefer that the writers focused on developing his character along with Haley’s storyline more than just trying to pave him as a possibly third-party and then switched gear during the second half of the series, making him into a comedic character. It was indeed different that his and Haley’s link was explained later (aside from being his assistant) but it didn’t help for his cause to make him out to be the bad guy (in someone’s marriage) and then tried to flip it around later. Luckily, Ben’s acting was so charming and great that I forgave him after the comedic scenes rolled around.
  • Roxanne Tong as Haley. Patrick’s assistant and sister-in-law. She wasn’t on the poster but I felt she deserved the main cast spot as much as the other three. Anyway, this was my third time watching Roxanne and I felt she have great potential. I first watched her in Come Home Love, then still waiting to see her character development in Come Home Love: Dinner At 8, and now this one. Her character this time was vibrant and really stood out. She was cute and cunning in her own way. Although I felt that it was an exaggeration with the way she ate at times with how she dragged out the “ummm, good” parts in the middle of tasting the foods that arrived. But that was just me. Overall though, she was quite charming with her comedic acts, which is rare nowadays since people tend to exaggerate too much and cause it to have the opposite effect.

Others:

  • Joseph Yeung as Martin. Another boss role for him. Although he seemed to be busy embroiling in the whole office battle from the start, but when he finally left, we realized he wasn’t just holding on to Hugo for the sake of the money. It was his words to Hugo that we realized he did recognize Hugo’s talent and would love to hire Hugo again one day when he made his comeback.
  • Rachel Kan as Rowena. Hugo’s arch-enemy. There were quite a few comments that I had read stating that Rowena should have gotten more screen time to enhance her witty side and to intensify her battle with Hugo, but I felt it was enough. Just because she wasn’t in the limelight for the majority of the show didn’t mean that she wasn’t smart or cunning. She was plenty of that. I think people need to be able to detect all the cues without it being outright dramatic all the time like some other cat-fight dramas or power-driven series. Although the plot had directed the attention away from Rowena and the law firm half of the time, but that didn’t mean Rowena wasn’t fighting, wasn’t scheming, wasn’t trying her best to climb to the top. We got to see her intimidating side when she was face-to-face with Hugo yet we got to see her harsh yet effective stances explained when she was talking to her assistant, Cindy.
  • Patrick Dunn as Scott. I honestly think he was the wisest in here. Although Hugo was known as the best but Hugo was still busy feeling the high of his fame to realize the situation around him. Rowena, on the other hand, was also quite confident and bordering on the arrogant side to see clearly at times although I do admit she did know how to play her games. Scott was the wisest because although he seemed to be MIA from the main battlefield, but he often saw more than he cared to say at times. He was able to analyze the situation and even advised Hugo at times when Hugo was stuck–or when Damon was running around trying to fend for himself while his bosses were fighting.
  • Mandy Lam as Carmen. One of the lawyers at Martin’s law firm. She jumped into Hugo’s car at one time, asking for their help in looking for her daughter. However when Hugo needed the backup at the law firm, she was indifferent. I totally understand why with the office politics and all yet I felt it was sooooo cold.
  • Joey Law as Damon. Hugo’s disciple. Loyal to Hugo yet quite raw in office politics hence kept getting the push around by others. I think Joey would go far. He sure got the looks and need more experiences to hone his skills.
  • Candy Chang as Cindy. Rowena’s disciple. I didn’t like her at first, mostly because of my bias, thinking she was in cahoot with Rowena, trying to mess with Damon for information. Hey, it was possible with the rivalry between the other two. Yet later when she told Damon of her past and how she wanted to work hard to get back on her feet, I dialed back with my bias. Not to mention she proved to be really strong and righteous in her own way when she attempted to “show” Damon of the proof Hugo needed to get off the assault charge.
  • William Chu as Justin. Cindy’s ex-husband. It was a bit of a shocker that he and Cindy were exes. But Cindy’s explanation made sense with how they wanted to keep it under-wrap as much as possible, not wanting to affect their careers. He didn’t appear much but seemed to get along well with others and even fended better than Damon. Once again, it made sense because he and Cindy wanted to work hard and start over with their careers, making up for lost time.
  • Lily Li as Rebecca’s mother. I had a little bit of a flashback since they’d been master and disciple in a past series. In fact, it was my first series of Maggie so that left an impression. Anyway, although she appeared just a little and then eventually only in flashbacks, but she really left an impression in here, especially how it paved for the way how Hugo and Rebecca’s relationship crumbled–considering how it was a major trauma in Rebecca’s life.
  • Brian Chu as Fred. Hugo’s brother. I thought that his acting wasn’t as terrible as some people paved it out to be. At least not to me. I could totally feel it after Rebecca’s mother died and he grieved her in his own way–with how he kept his promise to get a new phone for her. Then when he was struggling to deal with his own weaknesses and how he got stage fright and ran away. He was somewhat spoiled because of how protective his brother was of him and wanted what was best for him, aside from pushing him a tad too hard with the whole becoming a lawyer thing. Yet he was indeed quite filial to Rebecca’s mother–like said before, considering how she practically raised him. He also respected Rebecca and others around him. It was just that he was lost in life, not sure of what his aspirations were or what road he wanted to head for.
  • Momo Wu as Edith. Fred’s friend and crush. I wasn’t sure to like or not to like her at first. NOT because of her appearance but I was somewhat turned off with how she stole her master’s shop name to go in to business. Yet when her story unfolded more and how she was a very strong character–despite going through so much hardship, she gained my respect. She snapped right back at Hugo when they first met, but proved to be consistent with her character when she insisted on paying Fred back, not wanting Hugo to misunderstand her for clinging onto Fred for his money. I ended up enjoying their banter from time to time whenever their lives were crossed, mostly because they had to look after Fred–with their own method.
  • Eileen Yeow as Ah Fong. Rebecca’s best friend. I really liked her for her spunky personality and her humorous reactions to matters. However, she lost points for me when she tried to push Rebecca toward Patrick at one point. Luckily, she didn’t keep to it until the end.
  • Ricky Wong Chun Tong as Cheng Wu aka Uncle Wu. A friend of the family to Hugo and Rebecca. I initially thought he was related to them somehow yet later realized it wasn’t so. Yet it proved that he was more reliable and supportive of them when they were enduring such hardships, unlike the so-called “family” they supposedly had after their father tragically died.

Relationships: I initially didn’t want to do this section like I typically would because I felt it was unnecessary since I’ve been piling up on the “Discussions” section, but after debating with myself a bit, I thought I might as well put it in. Or more like move the topics to this one.

  • Moses/Hugo and Maggie/Rebecca. Like many TVB pairings, their collaboration seemed over-killed by now. Yet for me, I think this one was sort of long overdue. Or possibly I haven’t caught all the ones they were in together or paired up. But I felt this one topped it all, even if their other characters were more complicated. I just felt that they deserved a happy ending after When Heaven Burns and Master of Play.
  • Ben/Patrick and Roxanne/Haley. It was in a way “icky” for me, considering how he married her sister previously. Yet for Ben and Roxanne as a pairing, I felt it wasn’t too bad–despite their age gap. For some weird reason, I felt he suited with her more than some of his past co-stars, even if they were closer in age to him. I enjoyed their comedic moments. One of my favorite parts (and possibly for Hugo and Rebecca too) was the part where both men thought both women might have died from the gas inhalation so Patrick totally unleashed on Haley about how worried he was and how rash it was for her to do such thing without waiting for them, etc. It was hilarious how Haley laughed (which was typical her) but it was hilarious with both men saying almost, exact same thing. (I wonder how long they had to rehearse that together, lol.)
  • Joey/Damon and Candy/Cindy. It was sort of open ending, which was all right with me, but I felt they would eventually end up together.
  • Brian/Fred and Momo/Edith. Was I the only one not sore that they didn’t end up together? Not because of her somewhat shady past (according to some people) or his immature nature throughout. But it was more like it would be too gift-wrapped. I think that they were both still young and like Edith said, they still have a lot to work for with their life goals and/or dreams to strive for. Perhaps, one day when they meet up again, they might see a possibility to take their relationship to another level. But right at that point, I felt it was enough with their special friendship.

Discussions:

  • Was the ending rushed or not? Usually, I will argue that TVB endings are rushed, but in this case, I felt it was laid out fine. I didn’t want to be spoiled but my mom made me nervous so I had to go check on some reviews to get the idea if we should proceed after several episodes or not. Some mentioned how it was rushed or how certain characters changed overnight more or less. However, I think it wasn’t rushed for the majority of the characters. Hugo and Rebecca didn’t change overnight regarding how they decided to return to each other’s side. They had always have feelings for one another but they were both too stubborn in their beliefs that they didn’t want to cave in. Although Rebecca had said at one point or another that she didn’t know if it was love that she still stuck by his side after so many years or it was just gratitude for what he’d done for her, but I felt that she still cared for him. It was just that so many years of waiting had worn her down and not to mention her mother passed away so recent. Her world was falling apart and she didn’t know where to start with continuing on with her life. It wasn’t just about Hugo’s lack of attention either. Then there was Hugo, we learned from flashback that he was quite kindhearted, hard-working, and considerate. It wasn’t like some viewers had said that he changed for the better overnight. It wasn’t so. He had lost his way along the way while trying to become rich and successful. He often struggled with his feelings and what he thought was more realistic throughout–even after the separation from Rebecca. He needed a push from Uncle Wu and then later from Scott’s kid to realize what his path should be or to make up his mind at long last. So when he was willing to let go of the competition and the battles within the law firm, he and Rebecca just fell back into being a team once again. Because even Rebecca realized at the end that she didn’t have to wait for him all the time, she could just step forward and walk along his side, facing difficulties together. What I felt was rush–YES, I will admit–was Patrick’s change of heart. But possibly it made sense. I meant Patrick was really disappointed and probably upset that Rebecca was willing to believe Hugo one more time after the incident where she was assaulted. Yet I think what convinced Patrick to let go somewhat was learning how much Hugo loved Rebecca, i.e. the part where Hugo lost his head and was willing to risk getting caught when he beat the uncle-in-law up for assaulting Rebecca previously. He wasn’t letting go completely but he realized Hugo wasn’t a monster like he paved Hugo out to be from the start, seeing how much Hugo hurt Rebecca–mostly from his point of view. He was able to see a different side of Hugo, even if violence wasn’t the best approach, but like Patrick himself said that it proved how much someone meant to you if you had lost your head over a situation. So later when he saw them (Hugo and Rebecca) at the hospital together and how they’d gotten along again, he was more convinced that they were going to get back together eventually. He looked hopeless, like his chance was totally slipping, no doubt about it. So it wasn’t like it was overnight. Perhaps, it was also because he didn’t realize he had somehow liked Haley hence the over-protectiveness, not just because he had promised her sister to take good care of her. It was somewhat a plot mess with that one, but it wasn’t too unconvincing. Moving on to Rowena, did she just plain win the office battle overnight? No, I think I answered this somewhat in the Character section, but to tie it in, Rowena was proven both intelligent and brutal. The time it took for her to take over completely wasn’t unreasonable, she had plans and schemes going on. Sure, it seemed she won because Hugo got distracted with his family issues or when Hugo let go, but it didn’t mean he totally gave it to her. She was fully capable of her own tricks. Again, like how she told Cindy at various points with her tactics, it wasn’t too unconvincing that she won in the end. Besides, you don’t win a battle by kicking and screaming for blood. Patience is the key because you need to be able to stay calm and wait for the right opportunity to strike. Sure, Rowena miscalculated several times and took several steps back, but she didn’t give up so easily. Her determination puled her through at the end.
  • Should the series had focused more on the law side (aka cases over romances)? Although the background surrounding several major characters were at law firms and had to do with the law industry in general, however, the title still indicated that it wasn’t exactly about the law, but about several characters so I didn’t feel like it needed to focus on the law too much. I swear TVB had already done quite few series regarding the law so I didn’t think it was lacking in that matter. They didn’t promise in the title so I wasn’t sore. This was about the conflict between Moses and Maggie’s characters more than a law focused drama.

Recommended? Up to you. I’m on my own wavelength like always. I felt it was a midway lighthearted series for me, because Maggie didn’t die in here–since she usually died (or would encounter some major tragedy).

The Snow Queen: New Stills

Dylan had recently updated about the drama but I was occupied with other stuffs so of course I’m slow in updating once again.

Before I post more stills, I have to clarify something here. It seemed like the late Qiao Ren Liang was also the main lead or possibly he was the main lead and then Dylan was the second lead. Not quite sure since I’ve been out of the loops as far as dramas are concern of recent.

I also don’t know if the drama was filmed before the tragedy or was in the middle of filming when the tragedy occurred, but I will be looking forward to this drama regardless. I also wouldn’t want to be super insensitive or inconsiderate here with what had happened. I don’t know how to comment to make it more considerate or respectful, because I was not following Qiao Ren Liang actively like most people were with his popularity over quite a few dramas–even though I know who he was. So yes, what I am  saying is it wouldn’t be my place to contribute regarding the matter, but I will say as a follower of Yuan Shan Shan, I was shocked to know what happened. But what happened had already happened and perhaps like Zhang Han said, Qiao Ren Liang is probably at a better place right now. May he rest in peace and wherever he is, hopefully he would be free of all the stress and pressure from the public.

愛到心破碎也別去怪誰
ai dao xin po sui ye bie qu guai shui
Love until the heart has been smashed into pieces yet still do not blame anyone
Yêu đến lúc nát cả tim can rồi mà vẫn còn không trách gì ai
只因為相遇太美
zhi yin wei xiang yu tai mei
Only because the meeting was so beautiful
Chỉ vì cuộc gặp gỡ quá đẹp
就算流乾淚 傷到底
jiu suan liu gan lei   shang dao di
Even if tears had drained, pain had reached its limit
Cho dù lệ cạn, nỗi đau đã đến tận cùng
心成灰也無所謂
xin cheng hui ye wu suo wei
The heart turned into ashes, it still didn’t matter
Trái tim biến thành tro tàn cũng không sao

我破繭成蝶願和你雙飛
wo po jian cheng die yuan he ni shuang fei
I’m breaking through the cocoon to turn into a butterfly, hoping to fly by your side
Tôi phá ra khỏi vỏ thành hồ điệp, nguyện cùng em song phi
最怕你會一去不回
zui pa ni hui yi qu bu hui
Fearing the most that you wouldn’t return after leaving
Sợ nhứt là khi em đi rồi sẽ không quay về
雖然愛過我 給過我
sui ran ai guo wo   gei guo wo
Even if loving me, giving me
Cho dù yêu tôi, trao ra cho tôi
想過我就是安慰
xiang guo wo jiu shi an wei
Thinking of me were just out of comfort
Nghĩ về tôi chỉ là những sự an ủi

我向你飛 雨溫柔的墜
wo xiang ni fei   yu wen rou de zhui
I flew toward you while rain fell gently
Tôi bay về hướng của em trong lúc mưa nhè nhẹ rơi
想你的擁抱把我包圍
xiang ni de yong bao ba wo bao wei
Missing your embrace, enveloping me
Nhớ nhung vòng tay em bao bọc lấy tôi
我向你飛 多遠都不累
wo xiang ni fei   duo yuan dou bu lei
I flew toward you, not feeling fatigue regardless of distance
Tôi bay về hướng của em dù có bao xa cũng không mệt mỏi
雖然旅途中有過痛和淚
sui ran lu tu zhong you guo tong he lei
Even if the journey contained pain and tears
Cho dù hành trình chứa đau thương lẫn nước mắt

我向你追 風溫柔的吹
wo xiang ni zhui   feng wen rou de chui
I chased after you while the wind blew gently
Tôi đuổi theo em trong lúc gió đang nhè nhẹ thổi qua
只要你無怨 我也無悔
zhi yao ni wu yuan   wo ye wu hui
Only wanting you to have no resentment and that I also have no regrets
Chỉ muốn em không có những oán hận và tôi cũng sẽ không hối hận
愛是那麼美 我心陶醉
ai shi na me mei   wo xin tao zui
Love is so beautiful that I am infatuated by it
Tình yêu sao mà đệp quá, khiến cho tôi mê mẩn
被愛的感覺
bei ai de gan jue
The feeling of being loved
Cảm giác được yêu

Lyrics by: Chen Xin Rong (陳信榮)

Key:
Bold = Chinese
Dark Green = Pin Yin
Purple = English
Teal = Vietnamese

回憶充滿整個房子
hui yi chong man zheng ge fang zi
Memories flooding through the house
Kỷ niệm tràn ngập căn nhà
我們的住處
wo men de zhu chu
Our dwelling
Chỗ mình đã từ trú ngụ
圍困我 笑也不會茶也不思
wei kun wo   xiao ye bu hui cha ye bu si
Trapping me, unable to smile, unable to think
Khóa buộc tôi đến mức không thể nào cười hoặc suy nghĩ
一個人 恍恍又惚惚
yi ge ren   huang huang you hu hu
Alone, bewildered and confused
Một mình hoảng loạn
相愛的國度裡 沒有人居住
xiang ai de guo du li   mei you ren ju zhu
At lovers’ world with no one residing
Tương ái tại một thế giới mà không ai trú ngụ

回憶混亂我的腳步
hui yi hun luan wo de jiao bu
Memories causing my footsteps to become chaotic
Kỷ niệm khiến cho bước chân tôi bị hỗn loạn
阻礙了 出路
zu ai le   chu lu
Blocking the way out
Cản lại lối thoát
證明了 你的自私你的貪圖
zheng ming le   ni de zi si ni de tan tu
Proving your selfishness, your greediness
Chứng minh sự ích kỷ và tham vọng của em
殘忍的 看著我無助
can ren de   kan zhe wo wu zhu
Mercilessly looking at my helplessness
Nhẫn tâm mà nhìn tôi trong sự vô lực
平淡的回應我 虛假的無辜
ping dan de hui ying wo   xu jia de wu gu
Passively answering me with fake innocence
Dùng giọng nhạt nhẽo mà trả lời tôi với sự vô tư giả tạo

痛徹心扉 記憶的傷一吋一吋像你的冷酷
tong fei xin fei   ji yi de shang yi cun yi cun xiang ni de leng ku
The wound deep in the heart, the memorable inch by inch of pain is just like your heartlessness
Vết thương thấu tim, nổi đau từng chút từng chút giống như là sự lạnh lùng của em
否定我這些日子以來的付出
fou ding wo zhe xie ri zi yi lai de fu chu
Discrediting my effort since those days
Phủ nhận đi những gì tôi đã trao ra trong những ngày qua
不能睡的痛楚 不知名的憤怒
bu neng shui de tong chu   bu zhi ming de fen nu
The insomniac pain, the nameless anger
Nổi đau làm cho mất ngủ, sự phẫn nộ mà không có tên
不能上訴 只能安靜的痛哭
bu neng shang su   zhi neng an jing de tong ku
I couldn’t appeal to it, I could only suffer silently
Tôi không thể khẩn cầu những gì, tôi chỉ có thể đau khổ trong âm thầm

告訴我 不再需要有我來保護
gao su wo   bu zai xu yao you wo lai bao hu
Telling me that you don’t want me to come and protect you anymore
Nói với tôi rằng em không muốn tôi tới để bảo vệ cho em nữa
