Recently, Mainland China artiste Vicki Zhao's (趙薇) popularity increased after the broadcasting of the series, Tiger Mom (虎媽貓爸) and the rating was considered good. She expressed that although she did not film series for several years, there was no strange feeling as the attitude was the same for filming series and movies. The only difference was she did not film series in Beijing for a long time and many of her friends visited Vicki Zhao with snacks during filming.

When mentioned about the parents sacrificed everything for their child in the series, Vicki Zhao objected it: "I do not agree the parent should live for their child and create the best learning practice, education and environment for them, but need to train the child's independence and adapt to the society." Vicki Zhao also disclosed she will not be filming series for a few years later as she had already accepted several movies. She predicted that she will be taking a break around 2 years after filming Johnnie To's (杜琪峯) new movie.

As if feeling the impending divorce, the 42-year-old wrote: 'If I am obstructing your way to happiness or a second marriage, please tell me, I will respect your decision.
