- 20-episode lighthearted comedy.
- Joe Ma will play the boss of a mahjong club and a second-generation gangster who later becomes a mediator. His father is a gang leader; however, he goes to the good side, becoming a mediator, but his image is still dirty. He is an unconventional mediator who is rather lower class and slightly gangster-like. He causes Kate Tsui to get a divorce, later helping one another and developing feelings. He uses unusual methods to handle certain matters, and does not work in a very serious manner. He only relies on his mouth; there are no action scenes. His character is rather humourous and is not that heavy. He is portraying it in a lighthearted manner, and there are many comedic elements.
- Kate will play Stefan Wong's wife. Her husband always fools around and is not around. She cannot bear a child, so she looks everywhere for methods to do so; she does not want to divorce him. One day, mistress Carat Cheung starts living in their house, and they argue every episode; Carat, who lives on the upper level, disturbs them by being loud and doing aerobics.
- Johnson Lee will play a lawyer with bleached hair. He has a gangster background, but becomes Hong Kong's top lawyer. He is competitive, even having to win when pursuing girls. He has a romantic storyline with Jacqueline Wong and Elena Kong.
- Elena will play Lam A Lui (林亞磊), a cop. She and Johnson are a pair.
- Tracy Chu will play Kate's younger sister who is diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, so she is slightly autistic.
- Jacqueline will play Angie Wu Chi Pak (胡姿柏), who comes from a wealthy family.
- William Chak will play a gangster.
- Carat Cheung will play a fashion expert. She has many different looks, and will also sing and dance. She is Stefan's mistress.
- Chloe Nguyen will play Tong Yui (唐蕊), a beer girl.
- Jack Hui will play a gangster.
- Rebecca Zhu will play Joe's girlfriend.

Jacqueline plays Angie (Wu Zi Pak).

Wiki says she's the 4th female lead so I'm guessing Kate -> Elena -> Tracy -> Jacqueline.

According to hyn5 "Tracy Chu will play Kate's younger sister who is diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, so she is slightly autistic." If this is true, then I'm going to add this drama to the top of my 'to watch' list. This is a really new role for her and it sounds really interesting too. Can't wait to see how she does.

 

Funny how all the MHK12 winners are in this drama :lol:

I wonder if she have any love interest here? if yes, I think Nathan.

I think Carat will breakthrough in this role ... this type of roles normally will garner quite a bit of attention, so good luck to Carat. It all depends all on her performance now because role wise, I can say she got the one that people will notice her straight away.

Not sure how big Carat's role is in here. She doesn't seem to have a big part so I don't know if her character can garner attention xD She is the least popular out of the 3 MHK12s though so hopefully this will help boost her popularity a little bit.
