Episode 1 started 9th August. The opening scene shows Hoi Liang arriving at his office and everyone showed him lots of respect since he is the big boss. Episode 1 started straight away to high light the hate Hoi Sing has for his uncle Hoi Liang whom he thinks caused his father's death and now trying to take away all that his father has left behind. Hoi Liang has a daughter and a wife and they looked like a very happy family. Daughter is Macy who is a trainee doctor who is trying to bridge the gap between her father and cousin brother. Hoi Liang is the strict successful businessman who is also seen as a crook and only interested in money. He is great guy towards his family though. Episode 2 further stressed the hate Hoi Sing has for his uncle when he took control of the factory but now, we can see the softer side of Hoi Liang when he gives his nephew a chance to rebuild the factory instead of just closing it down.........

Penny, any thoughts or critiques on Damian's role or the drama?

The softer side of Hoi Liang doesnt apply to everyone, which makes him very detestable

So far. looking at the 2 episodes, I think Damian role is a kind of person who has very strong principles and is very confident of himself. Based on the way Damian play Hoi Liang, I see that there is something behind this tough stance. From the way he reacted to his sister in law (Hoi Sing's mother) who happened to be his ex-girl friend, I gather that Hoi Liang was deeply hurt by his brother when they were younger. I heard somewhere in the preview that he was even in jail while overseas because of something his brother did and when he came back, his brother had even married his girlfriend. So, I think Hoi Liang went through deep hurt and betrayal which turned him into what he is today. Trust no one and just do everything when he can clearly see the benefits. I suspect we will see more of the softer side as the drama continues.....

Well, I do understand him but I was not really agree with what he had done. By the way, he is smart and handsome.
I love Baby Damian and love Baby Sharon TOO

Wow!!! Thank you Penny :[79] By your effort to explain ep1 and 2, i can understand exactly what it is. I guessed whole story through reading character's face, voice and whole mood , but i didn't know exactly entire story. (I have never had expierence watching of this sort before i know Damian. hahaha ) I couldn't imagine that happend to Hoi Liang in the past. Thank you very much.:P 

 

 And i agree with Penny. Many misunderstanding and deep hurt he went through make what he is. But from his love for wife and daughter i can expect he will be changed.

I agree. If this character was not played by Damian, I would have hated him but then again, any character played by Damian is forgivable ;P ;P ;P

Finally was able to watch "Growing Through Life" tonight! :[92]

Like Penny said, episode 1 started very quickly to establish the conflict between of Hoi Liang and Hoi Sing. Episode 2 further hinted at the complexity and troublesome events that occurred in the Hoi family's past.  I feel that the conflict between Hoi Liang and Hoi Sing are very well established and that both Damian and Raymond portrayed those emotions very well.  I also find it refreshing to see them go at each other.

I feel that Hoi Liang is unlikable because he is ruthless and arrogant.  Although he shows that he loves his family, his stubbornness and arrogance was still there whenever business was mention.   I found the scenes of Hoi Liang with his wife to be very romantic particularily the massage and the dinner delivery parts.  From hints of his painful past, I can see why he became and grew into the ruthless, arrogrant person he is today.  I feel that as we find more about about his past and what happens to him in the future the audience will start to forgive him.  Currently I do not hate Hoi Liang chacter, but I found him to be very interesting as the character is very dynamic and complex.  Additionally, I have to admit that since Damian is acting as Hoi Liang it is very hard for me to dislike him more but I am going to try to be as logic as I can.  :loveliness:

On the other hand, Hoi Sing is a very likeable character because of his ideals and the fighter spirit against the ruthless Hoi Liang.  However, so far Hoi Sing is a very flat and predictable character.  He is implusive, emotional, loves his family and girlfriend, forgiving, honorable, wants to support his father's footsteps, and hates his uncle to death.  I do like to watch Hoi Sing because I can relate with the fighter spirit very well. 

When Lam Dai was introduced in episode 2, I found him to be a sunshine boy and a good friend.  Lam Dai's father is extremely loyal and honest.  So far neither of these characters has any special meaning to me.  This doesn't necessary mean that I don't like their acting. In fact, I like their acting just that the characters are not appealing to me at this moment in time.

I am happy to see the actress that acts as Hoi Sing's mom (sorry don't know her name) to act again.  The last time I saw her was in "Return of Condor Heroes 83."   I am interested in how her character affects Hoi Liang's past.  She seems to play a huge role in the conflict. Other than that I don't have any attachment to this character yet.

Hoi Liang's wife, CC, I found her character to be likeable and very smart as a wife behind such a ruthless man.  She loves her husband very much and knows how to speak to him regarding sensitive issues.  I think I should take some tips from her and apply them to my husband when he is being stubborn. ;P 

Hoi Liang's daugther, Toby, is also a likeable character because she tries to keep the family together and stands up for what she believes is right.  The fact that she struggles between her father and her brother adds a sympathy factor to her which I am able to relate with.  I feel that Toby has improved in her acting.

As for the mainland actress, I do not know her name but I feel bad for her so struggle between Hoi Sing and her brother's well being.   Decision making involving love ones are always the hardest ones to make.  Other than that there is not much shown regarding her personality so not much for me to like and dislike.

I am looking forwarding to seeing more episodes because I know from seeing trailers that each character listed above will change in some way as the story unfolds.  I want to see how each character develops and understand the past of the Hoi's family.

P.S. - My favorite scenes so far (of course all with Damian but I would like to note my favorite of favorite out of those) :):

* Hoi Liang and Hoi Sing arguing
* Hoi Liang and his wife sharing a phone to hear their daughter speak
* Hoi Liang wearing his red robe while getting a massage from his wife
* Hoi Liang eating dinner with his wife at the office

i think in the darma, massive themes are considered here : love and loss , the role parents should play, the role of blunt trama in the building of character…The point of the film? Maybe, to care about the ones you love. It"s a profound message, but it often gets lost in the noise of "real life". [ Last edited by 丁香 at 2010-8-11 15:29 ]

I like the phone scene too but I find the red robe quite distracting. But yes, there is a lot of romance between Damian and Yip Tung which is not so common as most of Damian's other notable productions, he does not have too many intimate scenes with his co star

Episode 3 is a bit slow today, not much of plot in it. I guess it is required to introduce some of the other characters such as the other lady from China who Hoi Laing put in the factory as a spy. Hoi Liang is growing more detestable because he is now trying to sabotage Hoi Sing's plans to grow the factory. This episode also talks about Hoi Sing's fiance being Lam Dai's ex girfriend and she is still in love with Lam Dai. They separated because her family considered Lam Dai too poor for her. Looking forward to the next episode.........
