Being a parent is probably the hardest task in one’s lifetime. While the majority chooses to unconditionally love their kids, drama parents aren’t so selfless. Romance for the leads take a backstage in these set of episodes to let sisterhood, brotherhood, and most importantly, motherhood take center stage. Which means our talented supporting cast members got to flex their acting muscle. Verdict? Strong performances.
Chun Chun is a hoot to watch. Such a witty and sharp female character that I could watch all day. Definitely a challenging role to play with Kristal’s recent confession about memorizing the scripts during her sleep because her lines come in paragraphs. Ha. Kristal is fabulous in this role, her every gesture, expression, and behavior are in sync to bring out the whole of Chun Chun. Is it weird that I find her cute in every scene? So it’s not surprising how I’m not the only one looking at her fondly.
I wonder if this is all planned. After Kristal bagged home the Best Actress Award a week ago, her drama Return of the Silver Tongue immediately premiered. Not only is she the female lead, she also sings the theme song with adorable actor, Fred Cheng, who has been basked in the limelight for his participation in The Voice of the Stars. It’s an entertaining series so far with Kristal anchoring my interest in her vibrant, saucy performance.
Interesting concept and one I’d like to see handle with a thoughtful, positive outlook. The first 4 episodes of TVB’s latest drama involves taking a spoiled city teenager and placing him in the middle of a rural life, without access to his everyday luxury goods. No cellphone, no internet, no toothpaste! Or is that even possible? Kids these days! It’s a growing problem when a 6 year-old is playing games on his latest Ipad gift instead of spending time outdoor.
