Angel in the Making 實習天使 TVB - Review


Angel in the Making 實習天使 - Review

This is our review of Angel in the Making. This time we are also featuring thoughts from our part-time contributor Ah Tao!

Basic Overview: (We're gonna skim through this part so we can get to our thoughts!)

Halley Kei's (Eliza Sam) dream is to become a nurse and in this drama, she plays a part of TUNS 6, a group of intern nurses going through an internship at Hang Yan Hospital. She is a caring and kind character that works under her "devil" mentor Ray Yeung (Tony Hung). Tony Hung is an enigmatic character that is still traumatized by his family's death in a car crash when he was six. He was the lone survivor and was taken up by Dom Cheung (Chung King Fai "King" Sir). Tony became a nurse under the care and love he received from the nurse Dom. Initially, TUNS 6 (consisting of Eliza Sam, Moon Lau, Jinny Ng, Momo Wu, Oil Chan, and Kevin Tong) hated Ray because he always yelled at them for doing things wrong. Adding to this, they were on the brink of drifting apart as a result of Abby Tang (Moon Lau) having a drunken one-night-stand with Halley's boyfriend, Patrick Ko (Jay Fung), with Alison Yu (Jinny Ng) revealing this to the entire group. Eventually, however, they overcome this hurdle and rekindle their bonds amid the challenges ahead of them. Soon, they start to see that Ray uses a different teaching style to challenge them to be better nurses and they end up liking him.
On the other hand, we have Defea Cha (Alice Chan), a senior nurse who has marital problems and often seeks relief from her marriage through Doctor Kennedy Tong (Pal Sinn). The two are old lovers but somehow things didn't work out. Defea finds her husband half-naked with another man and realizes he is gay further damaging their marriage. Throughout the drama, her daughter shows weird behaviour and is diagnosed with a mental illness. Under all this stress, she looks to Pal Sinn but he's already dating fellow nurse Sylvia To (Elaine Yiu). All these characters get tangled together in relationships and together, they look after a variety of patients and the interns show their love for nursing.

Thoughts from Cee:

First off I'm gonna start with the songs. We've noticed a lot of people wondering about the rap song that's in the drama. We tried finding it but we couldn't and instead we found this. When I initially saw it, it had 280000 views but now its got over 300000. I wonder where the views are coming from lol. This guy is actually going the Korean route and he actually wrote all the lyrics too which I really admire. There's a lot of heated discussion about this cover right now but too bad we can't find a version of the Angel in the Making sub-theme song by him and Kevin Tong. It's a crazy funny copy of the original.

UPDATE! - Thanks to a fellow commenter that found the song for us, we'll link it here for everyone!

Alright, now back to the drama. Initially we watched this being aware that we might be disappointed with the rookie cast. Instead, we found this to be a good drama although it had some flaws. First off, this role was practically written for Eliza Sam to shine as a caring nurse. The writers added depth to her character with the missing mom story and the dramatic friendship with Moon Lau. Personally, I think this is Eliza's best roles to date, if not the best one. Many of my friends like her role from The Hippocratic Crush 2 but I didn't really like it so I'd say this is the best one. She can still play young roles even though she's rather old for them. Her crying scenes are quite spontaneous and aren't too forced like Tony Hung's. Moving on to Tony Hung, this is one of his best roles again besides the crazy plotline in the last 2-3 episodes. Of course Tony has improvement for his crying scenes because it was hard to watch him cry for so hard and only have one tear. Maybe get tips from Natalie haha. With that being said, Tony did well in the rest of the drama as the monotonous mentor. He kept in character the whole way through and when we saw interviews/bloopers from tvb's channel you could see the difference between his role and his actual self. Some actors are the same in every drama and are the same in real life which is not acting. The rest of the cast did well except the beginning with Jay Fung was a bit awkward but that is forgiven since it's his first drama. I found Jinny to be great in her role and hope she sticks to acting instead of singing lol.
Like Jay and Ah Tao will mention, this drama simply suffered from poor transitions and a lot of untied ends. Is tvb planning a sequel for this? Because what happened to the nurse clinic? and the weird UFO thing on the last episode? and the love square between Jinny, the intern doctor, and the two guys from TUNS 6? and did the rowdy nurse assistant ever break up with her counterpart? LOL. The worst part was the ending I would say because of these loose ends and there was no time for Tony and Eliza to bond which I was waiting for. I haven't seen a good romance from tvb in such a long time since I skipped Every Step you Take (because of Moses LOL). The last memorable one I saw was Swipe Tap Love... two years ago. Anyways another thing that I didn't like from the scriptwriters was how Elaine came back with a daughter.... like... was that a joke or something? Because how can Alice Chan's character possibly be ok with her husband running back and forth between so many children? Will their marriage be doomed like her previous one? and why didn't Elaine come back or call him about it before having it and raising it for a couple years? These questions sound like they lead to a sequel, not that I'm against one but they tend to flop a lot. Overall, I just liked Eliza Sam and especially Tony Hung more in this drama. That's about it but it was good so I'd say 7/10.

Thoughts from Jay:

I initially thought this drama was gonna be like The Hippocratic Crush but with the nurse perspective. But as things progressed, it wasn't really like THC. Especially towards the end, things got so weird and creepy... it was just unexpected from TVB. I liked seeing some newer faces in TUNS 6 and all of their acting was acceptable, thank goodness. Jinny Ng seems to be a pretty good actress so far, hope to see more dramas with her! Most supporting roles were portrayed well by the actors and actresses. I was never too fond of Pal Sinn but he seemed to be fine as Dr. Tong, with the exception of his glasses without lenses. It really bugged me. Alice Chan's acting was exceptional just as in Lord of Shanghai. She puts just the right amount of emotion into acting, making her character convincing and natural. Tony Hung and Eliza Sam were pretty good leads and did not let the series down like Cee mentioned.  It was definitely disappointing we couldn't see more of Tony and Eliza because they were only together for the last two minutes and I think a lot of people were anticipating them together since the start. There were several story lines so that sort of took the spotlight away from them. The story between Alice, Elaine, and Pal was good and more mature, but I feel like there should have been more screen time for Tony and Eliza. Story wise, it was better than expected because after seeing all the big anniversary dramas, I didn't expect much from this. It followed the similar case-after-case formula that dramas usually have. However, many parts were kind of disturbing, gory, super creepy especially during the holiday season! That being said, there were humorous parts too, which made the series more enjoyable and less dark. But what's with Noddy (Tony Leung) asking to marry Mo Chi-fung (William Chak) all of a sudden when they weren't even in a relationship? Noddy always just went to nightclubs and everything... The worst part is HE SAID YES! That was just so awkward and bad.




The case of Joel Chan as Arthur or should I say... "Veronica" was just really weird and unexpected but he didn't have a big role so I don't know why his picture kept appearing on the poster during the break before and after commercials. Near the end of the series, things just turned sloppy and unexplained, which was unfortunate because of the successful beginning. There were some things that didn't need explaining and were unnecessary but they still put it on. The finale episode was a bit of a letdown, to be honest, and I agree that there should have been more episodes! Overall, I think I really got a deeper understanding of the nurse occupation which was the whole point of the drama. Besides that there were several memorable parts and it was a great opportunity for fairly fresh actors to improve. 7/10.

Thoughts from Ah Tao:

I haven't watched a TVB drama recently and even chose to skip the grand productions like Lord of Shanghai, so I thought Angel in the Making would be a good one to pick up that delight and sense of 'homeliness' you can find with (good) TVB productions. Overall, the drama was mostly well written and brought plenty of awareness about the nursing profession and their challenges. Like what Jay said, I was very impressed by Jinny Ng's acting; let's just say she isn't the most stable Cantopop singer out there but her acting skills prove otherwise. Her portrayal of the scene where she dumped Hugo Wong, who had placed a lot of negative pressure on her to become more 'lady-like' and adopt a more mature image, was relatable and made you empathize with how she had suffered. Initially, the TUNS 6 characters and their storylines weren't all that intriguing for me; I was rather always anticipating the Alice Chan-Pal Sinn-Elaine Yiu veteran 'love triangle' and their backstory. Elaine Yiu and her longing love for Arthur (Joel Chan) was clearly expressed through how she handled emotional scenes and it just made me thought about how she has attained 'fa dan'-level acting skills but missed her opportunity... I felt the same way with Alice Chan's character, the abuse she suffered from her husband, and her motherly instincts for her daughter. Both veteran actresses and Pal Sinn held their ground despite the TUNS 6 group being promoted as the highlight of the drama. Each component of the storyline was written well, but it was just the organization of it that got disjointed and made the drama feel rushed towards the finale. The plot might have worked better if there were more episodes to cover all the necessary plot transitions. 8/10.

We found this funny video on Tony attempting to surf! :)

Final Verdict:

Cee: 7/10 - Tony and Eliza were the highlight with the plotline being bad.
Jay: 7/10 - Some ridiculous scenes (William and Toby's flash marriage) but overall it was interesting and we kept wanting to watch more.
Ah Tao: 8/10 - Meh, it was above-average for TVB but the flow (or lack thereof) detracted from it.

Together we give this a 7.3/10 for the new attempt at using rookies for a nursing drama. We all loved the acting and hope that next time TVB puts in more time and effort in editing their script and final editing of the broadcasted episodes for a more coherent story.

Please let us know if you like these posts and what you want to see more of!

連詩雅 Shiga Lin - 舊街角

Hi everyone!

This is a new update on Shiga Lin's new song that came out 5 days ago called 舊街角. We've started listening to more and more Shiga Lin's songs this past year and we are starting to really like her. At first we noticed her song 只要和你在一起 on the side of our YouTube account but it wasn't until Jay gave it a try that we discovered her songs. She usually comes out with singles every month or two months always bringing new surprises. As the year is ending we're finding this new song to be super fitting because it talks about reflecting on one's past life. There's no turning back, 時光總不留人 as the lyrics say. There's always going to be that street in your life which reminds you of a special someone or a special time in your life.

Watching the JSG awards this past weekend also made us wonder where the awards for Shiga went. This year she had some great songs especially 大了一歲 . But with the politics at TVB, she was snubbed of all awards and instead, Alfred Hui and TVB's other singers just took home numerous awards. There's no saying what's gonna happen at the other awards for HK music but hopefully she gets some recognition.

This is the song:  連詩雅 Shiga Lin - 舊街角


曲:徐浩 / 齊樂平
詞:朱琳
編:徐浩
監:徐浩

街角 小店 記錄愉快相見 喊又笑的膚淺
別離 幾年 紀錄已經不見 昨日記憶斷線
細雨下約會你記得嗎 悄悄在耳後說的話 陪著我
 靜聽歌 看星星 一處漸漸繁華
時光總不留人 難得過去幸運
明日如何地變 仍是努力去捉緊
回憶彼此同行 和街角故地這樣襯
仍可 重溫 曾經憧憬這街中 笑著興奮
紙碎 一片 約定夏季相見 卻定格了冬天
走了 多遠 腳步踏進這寸 昨日腦海看見
挖去樹幹視野更廣嗎 擦去年少時對的罵 平淡似
 靜聽歌 看星星 今晚亦是無暇
時光總不留人 難得過去幸運
明日如何地變 仍是努力去捉緊
回憶彼此同行 和街角故地這樣襯
仍可 重溫 曾經憧憬這街中 笑著興奮
留低 餘溫 藏一點收進心坎 暖和黑暗

Hope you guys like this song as well!

2015 TVB Anniversary Awards Thoughts and Red Carpet

Firstly, we would like to apologize for the late post on the TVB Anniversary Awards this year. We have been super busy with the holidays coming up!

We will first talk about the winners this year and our opinions about them. Then we will have a red carpet section to take a look at some of the outfits of the night.


Award Winners: 
Best Series: Lord of Shanghai

Definitely the best drama of the year. It was amazing to watch and TVB hasn't had too good of
dramas in 2015, so this one was a huge contrast to that. All of the actors and actresses did a great job acting and didn't mess up the drama like how COD was messed up. It was so suspenseful and the characters were just so well written. The drama was so highly anticipated before it came out and thankfully, we were not disappointed! We hope to see more of these dramas from TVB but that seems a bit unlikely from the sales presentation we saw....



Best Actor: Anthony Wong (Lord of Shanghai)

He was no doubt the best actor this year and totally deserves this award. He not only brought his character to life, but worked hard to adapt the script and work with the directors to produce a truly inspiring drama. The only question was whether or not TVB would give it to him from the beginning since he is already an award winning movie and stage actor. 

Best Actress: Nancy Wu (Ghost of Relativity)

We are glad that Nancy won over other actresses... namely Linda. Nancy has improved so much over the years that it is nice to see the good results she has gained. Her role in Ghost in Relativity was enjoyable and very compatible when working with Kristal. Nancy did seem like the best choice this
year since all of the top 5 nominated actresses were bad. When they said that Nancy acted for over a
decade to gain a leading female role, we gained all the more respect for her, (unlike some actresses who have acted for a year and already have PLENTY of leading roles!)... we wonder how those select individuals feel after knowing that the REAL winners have working for so long for the opportunity and they are just wasting it away. 

Favourite Male Character: Ruco Chan (Captain of Destiny)

We definitely think that this is the best place for Ruco to receive the award. He showed vast improvement in Captain of Destiny than from previous roles and carried the whole series. Of course, when put beside more experienced actors such as Anthony or Wayne, he still lacks the experience. Still, outstanding performance from Ruco and we look forward to seeing him in other dramas. He is
really a keeper for TVB.

Favourite Female Character: Kristal Tin (Ghost of Relativity)

We really liked Kristal's role in the series and she was hilarious. Again, this was a deserved win. It is good that they gave awards to both Kristal and Nancy since it wouldn't make sense if one got an award but not the other. However, a lot of netizens have been complaining about her attitude the
whole night and we think that netizens should really treat this as a show. It's entertainment after all, and she has claimed many times that she was trying to add humour to the show.

Best Supporting Actor: Willie Wai (Lord of Shanghai) 

It was actually hard for us to take our pick for the best supporting actor category since there were so
many good candidates. We are thoroughly satisfied with Willie Wai winning this award and think it's well earned. It is nice to see TVB giving out awards not only to the more popular actors but also to people who earned the award by skill. We remember watching him in War and Beauty back in 2004 and he was already a concrete actor, it was a shame that we wasn't put to much use after Jonathan Chik left. Hope he continues to get more opportunities.



Best Supporting Actress: Elaine Yiu (Captain of Destiny)

Elaine is a very good actress and has shown she can play many diverse roles. We liked her evil role in Captain of Destiny as Consort Yim although we thought it was pretty predictable. Elaine has been in the industry for a while and she hasn't gotten much in the past years, so to see her making progress is nice. She was so emotional because she knows that she's really come a long way. More than anything, this award went to her as sign of recognition.

Most Improved Actor: Tony Hung
We were kind of expecting this win. Tony was alright but we think he is better in Angel In-the-Making now but that sort of counts for next year .... We also thought that he did show improvement
stepping up to be the lead in COD. It is too bad for Matt Yeung since we think he deserved the award
too as he did awesome in his dramas and he's been in the industry for over a decade! How time flies! This award really came down to politics at TVB.

Most Improved Actress: Grace Chan

Also expected even though Grace's acting was not outstanding because of the politics. However, we think that Rosina Lam deserves this award more and has shown actual improvement. Even Tracy Chu and Jacqueline Wong would've been better picks since they've worked for a longer period of time and THERE HAS BEEN IMPROVEMENT. We hope to see Grace's acting improve in the future, because honestly, there wasn't much improvement this year other than her taking part in a lot of stuff. To be honest, her acting kind skills actually became WORSE from Raising the Bar to Captain of Destiny. Don't know how that counts as improvement.

Mainland China Most Popular TVB Series Male Artiste: Bosco Wong

Cool.......

Mainland China Most Popular TVB Series Female Artiste: Linda Chung

This is only because of the amount of fans that Linda has but to be quite honest, she has not shown any good acting qualities as far as we know.

Best Hosts: Liza Wang, Adam Cheng, Jerry Lamb (Sunday Songbird)

Thought that they were relatively good hosts as Adam and Liza took part in singing as well. Jerry
Lamb also kept things on track and made the show smoother. It was a pleasant show and we don't have too much to say about it.

Best Variety and Special Programme: DoDo Goes Shopping

The program was funny and entertaining, although some parts were boring. It was cool to see different shopping areas in England, France, and Australia.  Didn't like how Sharon Chan kept saying "CHEAPER PLEASE" when they were in Australia though. The Australia part was just a complete let down.

Best Informative Programme: Big Big World II

No comment since we did not see this.

Best Theme Song: 眼淚的秘密 - Jinny Ng (Empress of China)

Weird enough, this one was actually the award that surprised us the most. Although, the song isn't bad, we just totally forgot about it. We thought that it would either be Alfred's 歲月無悔 or Fred's 揚帆 or even Linda's 一顆不變的心 winning since there was more hype for these songs.

Best Classic Series: The Greed of Man:

This was interesting but we don't have much to say about it once again.

Lifetime Achievement Award: Natalis Chan

We were never a huge fan of Nat Chan but to be fair, he has been with TVB since such a long time and has contributed every year to his shows. ONLY PROBLEM IS... he's just treating this as a joke. He really doesn't care. So we can TOTALLY see where this is coming from. Good for him! PROUD!

Red Carpet Looks:

Best/Nice looks:

Nancy Wu looked great in this long-sleeve glittering, silvery dress, fit for a TVB queen. This is
custom designed by her good friend, Kev Yiu. The stars and embellishments were beautiful. This wasn't just some school girl prom dress, it was mature and inspiring.


Both Ruco Chan and Kristal Tin looked stunning that night. We love Ruco's regal deep purple suit and we like how he paired it up with a bow rather than a tie. But the shoes.. or moccasin looking shoes threw us off. Kristal on the other hand looked great as well. We heard she didn't eat to wear this dress and it is really beautiful and accentuates her curves very well. The blue pendant also really brought out the colour of her dress.



We heard this outfit of Tavia's was super expensive, especially her jewelry. We really like the design of the dress with black floral designs. It is simple but works out well with the jewelry. We think the straps are a bit awkwardly placed but she wears it well.


Eliza Sam was fabulous in this outfit. She finally moved away from the girly dresses to something more mature and the slow cascade of glitter looked beautiful as well. A winning look!


Awkward looks:

Selena Li has definitely worn better gowns than this one. Although we like the ombré pink tulle it's a bit too much and it looks like it's weighing her down.  If there was less tulle this would've looked flawless. The choppy cutting of the top part doesn't blend in with the bottom. But really we think this is more towards a great look than anything bad.




Nat Chan: Well. What have we got to say? Is this a school uniform with the crests on the suit jacket? and what's with the pants? The shoes are also very awkward. They look more like slippers.


Grace Chan: We know that Grace was super excited about this dress and said she wanted to go for something different but we really didn't like the colour of this dress because it was a bit murky and took away from her youthful charm. As for the cutting, it was just a lot. Way too much draping and mixed up patterns to distract us from her skinny figure. This style just poofed up her body as an illusion.


Jeannie Chan: The pattern of her dress was quite new and we're alright with it? The only problem is that it looks like a beach wrap over her bathing suit and her hair looks right out of the water as well.



Safe looks:

Sharon Chan: She knows she's tall and has a skinny body so she just keeps going for these dresses because they're safe. Also, she wore white last year again... still on her wedding phase? At least no legs this time?
Tony Hung: Although Tony looks quite good dressed up, we think the full black is a bit on the dull side of things. We liked his suit at the Starhub TVB Awards better than this one.


Wayne Lai: Same comment as Tony Hung, a bit dull.

Carol (DoDo) Cheng: Wearing her go-to designer Dorian Ho, Dodo never fails to look underdressed. But this time, it's on the safe side with the monochrome colour scheme.


Nasty looks:

 photo Ann 53.jpg
Joel Chan: uhm.. well, we'll ignore Elaine Yiu because we think she looks great but this was the only picture we could find of Joel Chan. What style... From the mis-matched cutting of the suit to the kilt like bottom. And what are those? Sandals? The socks are coming through. Disastrous.


Moses Chan: Nice.. Street style? Oh, just the shoes. Better prepare for the winter with that scarf and the bright blue suit just looks silly. This is too much.

Linda Chung: And to say that she looked beautiful? Come on! This is another cheap beach wrap like Jeannie Chan. It was not elegant at all and she really gave up all her effort into looking better since she's been losing her BA award for seven years! This look was disappointing..

Kenneth Ma: Oh no! Just like Linda, he's now hopeless for the TV King award. All he cares for now are intimate scenes. Are we right? And this is just a bath robe... with black on top.
Elena Kong: Must've been comfortable for her that evening. Better ask Moses to borrow that scarf for her thighs! What's with the undergarment theme this year at TVB? Elena Kong being red and ... hot? WONDER WHAT THE BEHIND LOOKED LIKE ;) full on lace? or a bit of cover up haha.

Thanks for checking this out as always! And we'll have more coming up! Let us know your thoughts on this year's awards and fashion. Happy Holidays everyone!

Also, we have kept the sources on the pictures like TungStar or from TVB.com.

2015 TVB Theme Song Review!

Hey everyone! With the TVB season wrapping up this year, we decided to create a post on TVB's theme songs this year. Just a small note that we will not include sub themes in this post, there will be a post on that later! Hope you enjoy our little review/opinions on them.

TVB Theme songs:

鍾嘉欣 Linda Chung - 我不夠好 (劇集"東坡家事" With or Without You 主題曲) - ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING.... HORRIBLE! Spare your ears and do not listen to it!!! Yes.. it was that bad and as much as Linda had bad songs before, this is probably her WORST. She literally sounded like she was suffocating and could not catch up with the lyrics. She is bad at singing fast songs and keeps breathing heavily. It was like she didn't even want to be there to sing it and had no heart whatsoever. SO ANNYOYING TO LISTEN TO.

泳兒 Vincy Chan - 獨一無二 ( 劇集"無雙譜" Under the Veil 主題曲) - The song was soothing and very comfortable to listen to. Her voice is soft and not forceful to convey emotion through the song like some other singers... ahem.. LINDA. Lyrics are also better than a lot of TVB songs. Vincy hasn't sung much other TVB songs that we know of so well done and we hope to hear more theme songs from her.

鄭俊弘 Fred Cheng-揚帆 (台慶劇 "張保仔" Captain of Destiny 主題曲) - This is a powerful song from Fred that we really didn't notice too much. After hearing a whole years worth of the same boring stuff from Voice Entertainment, we kinda gave up on their theme songs. After listening to this one more, we appreciate Fred's heart and passion singing this song despite the redundant lyrics.

胡杏兒 Myolie Wu-天使 (劇集 "陪著你走” Every Step You Take主題曲) - didn't really watch the drama but the song is good and Myolie has a sweet voice.

張繼聰 Louis Cheung -月無聲 (劇集 “收規華 ” Momentary Lapse of Reason 主題曲) - Louis's old songs were not as good and we found that his voice wasn't pleasant to listen to but this song really changed our thoughts on him as a singer. He has a powerful voice here and it fits the drama really well. The only issue we have with this is the repetitive lyrics.

蕭正楠 Edwin Siu - 400呎 (劇集"樓奴" Brick Slaves 主題曲) - This song was kind of a funner one and served as a nice theme for the series. We also enjoyed the jazzy theme. Didn't like how in the middle his voice got kind of blocked with some effects and the lyrics weren't great. Not bad though!

許廷鏗 Alfred Hui - 迷宮 (劇集 '拆局專家' The Fixer 主題曲)  - Sigh... another song that is just slapped together with some meaningless lyrics and same flat tune. We aren't too sure if we should call it a tune actually, there is no tune. It's just words strained together by a voice. Disappointed in this song.

C AllStar - 天光 (劇集"鬼同你OT" Ghost of Relativity 主題曲) - uhh LOL. This is a song that only fits to the drama and it's a weird listen outside of it for us. BUT we think C Allstar has great voices and is better than a lot of other current singers. It's just kind of a weird song.

鄭俊弘 Fred Cheng - 愛同行 (劇集"愛回家" Come Home Love II 主題曲) - This song is nice and heartwarming. Fred has a nice voice that is easy to listen to. Too bad Come Home Love had to continue on this way, what a waste of a great song.

蕭正楠 Edwin Siu -轟天動地 (劇集"風雲天地" Master of Destiny 主題曲) - This one was alright, nothing too surprising but we have heard it a lot so we aren't brainwashed yet ;)

側田 / 李思捷 Justin Lo and Johnson Lee - 出口 (劇集"以和為貴" Smooth Talker 主題曲) - Uhh. First of all, half the time, we couldn't hear the lyrics and they made absolutely no sense. There isn't really a tune and it's another one of those meaningless last minute theme songs from TVB.

倫永亮 , 蓋鳴輝 Anthony Lun and Joyce Koi - 天衣無縫 (劇集"水髮胭脂" Romantic Repertoire 主題曲) - Ummm... how does this sound again? OH YEAH!!!! This was not good at all. In fact, it was pretty terrible. The song was awkward and their voices are not suitable for this type of song. it was a mix between modern and canto opera styles? Considering both their singing skills, we would have expected a better song.

汪明荃 Liza Wang - 華麗轉身 (劇集"華麗轉身" Limelight Years 主題曲) - At first this song was very mediocre and Liza Jeh isn't that good at singing modern pop songs so we really didn't like this. But we realized that this was already edited a lot and tbh.. it sounds good now. Live on sunday songbird was worse, so this is good.


C Allstar - 無懼 (劇集"潮拜武當" Wudang Rules 主題曲) - We don't really understand why C Allstar is singing a bunch of theme songs now, aren't they with their own record company? This was an ok song but it just felt like it was put together very last minute and it's just a weird song.

許廷鏗 & 胡鴻鈞 Alfred Hui and Hubert Wu - 真相 (劇集"天眼" Eye in the Sky主題曲)" - When we first heard this song, we couldn't hear Hubert at all and we both agree that he is the better singer. This song has really random lyrics that again sound like they're just put together last minute. Don't know why it won best theme song at Starhub Awards!!!

何雁詩 Stephanie Ho - 我和你 (劇集"四個女仔三個Bar" Raising the Bar 主題曲) - This one was also okay. Nothing much to say except that we look forward to hearing more songs from Stephanie with improvement.

蕭正楠 Edwin Siu - I'll Always be Yours (劇集"師奶Madam" Madam Cutie on Duty 主題曲) - We really liked this song and it's an easy listen. Edwin has a great voice and it probably helps since he's singing about Priscilla LOL.

吳若希 Jinny Ng - 美好的時光 (劇集"衝線" Young Charioteers 主題曲) - This song fits the drama which is good as some songs have no relation with the drama. We have definitely heard better from Jinny but this one is a more cheerful one than many of her other songs.

鄭俊弘 Fred Cheng - 造反 (劇集"八卦神探" Officer Geomancer 主題曲) - Just a weird song in general. Don't know how to explain it but it wasn't that great. I think we all can say that we have heard better from Fred, although the song isn't terrible and the style suits Fred.

王君馨, 羅鈞滿 Grace Wong and Ronald Law -是非 (劇集"宦海奇官" Noblesse Oblige主題曲) - Overtime, we kind of forgot about the song so it wasn't memorable at all. Wasn't bad but wasn't too good either. Grace and Ronald are mediocre singers which brings a kind of mediocre song.

薛家燕 & 蕭正楠 & 麥長青 Nancy Sit, Edwin Siu and Evergreen Mak- 報恩 (劇集"倩女喜相逢" My Spiritual Ex-Lover 主題曲) - Since we didn't watch this drama we didn't get a chance to listen to this song much but right now we're finding Evergreen Mak's parts really funny! SOUNDS A BIT LIKE SANTA! No comment since this is just for CNY.

Be sure to keep checking for updates on the sub-theme songs review!
