In the Realm of Success from TVB is a light romantic serial centering on the office politics and love affairs of roles portrayed by Nnadia Chan, Steven Ma and Michael Tong.

The story spins off with the return of overseas graduate Steven Ma, who recently just joined the "Golden Grand Hotel" under the recommendation of his dad. He was put into the same team as Nnadia in its Sales and Marketing department. A considerate character who goes by the philosophy of "treat others as you would want them to treat you", his slight stubbornness get him and the easy going Nnadia into sticky situations at times.

When Nnadia was dumped by her boyfriend later on, Steven was a consoling figure by her side and their relationship gradually blossomed. However, the matter got a little complicated as Michael Tong (also the youngest son of the hotel's boss), was interested in Nnadia as well. Not wanting to be in conflict with his buddy, Steven decided to give up the competition. But, the one Nnadia liked was actually Steven, and a love triangle developed

I just remembered that Michael Tong was really annoying in the series and Nnadia was really funny. I love the theme and sub-theme song though!

Rank with VOH2 as my least like Steven's series, and that's saying a lot considering how much I love Steven's series. I thought Steven's Chu Zai looks dorky and so wishy-washy...And the script was supposedly comedic but I didn't get it. Found it too troublesome to download so didn't bother to finish the whole series, but some Steven fans actually ranked the series as their favorite. So to each their own.

I usually like Michael especially in the return of the cuckoo but not in here. Must be the script.

A 2006 4/30 clip of Steven and Nnadia's duet 圆月弯刀 in an hour-long Hong Kong call-in reality show called 超级靓声演斗厅 (The contest of super vocals. ) So which group won in the end, if interested go watch the complete show in http://v.youku.com/v...Y3ODE3NDg=.html

Just notice that Nnadia's eyes are really bright and beautiful - very doll like - round, big and bright.

lol...The storyline is a little....ummm boring...but I really like the pairing of Steven and Nnadia, they look really cute. I know that it suppose to be a comedy but it seems like the dialogue wasn't well script to be, but it was fun to watch. I skipped a lot, especially parts that has the character of Nnadia's sister and Michael. Nnadia's sister actress was really bad, but I can see she is better now compare to this series.

terrific plot as steven denies his feelings for nadia; or is it the other way around? how nadia is a klutz; and, clair has so much confidence & she was having the hots for michael. michael's the rich guy?

Can't remember much about this series and I'm a Nnadia fan!! All I know is she starts of all clumsy and geeky looking with the specs and when she gets dumped by her boyfiend I think he was played by Mak Bao she goes through an image change and gets more confident. Michael wanted to be with Nnadia but have to marry a rich girl for the reason I can't remember!Anyway the pairing of Nnadia and Steven was good and I liked Margaret's friendship with Nnadia.
