I haven’t done a post like this in ages, so I will start by writing about the drama I have been watching for the past week.
TVB have released a new drama called 陪著你走 (Every Step You Take) and the first episode was aired on Monday 31st August 2015 at 8:30pm HK time. It’s plot revolves around the female lead 宋天從 (Played by Myolie Wu 胡杏兒), who was involved in a vehicle accident and became blind. Together with her boyfriend and guide dog, she recreates her life and starts adjusting to the world without sight. Obviously, TV drama shows are never that simple, where her boyfriend actually has another woman behind her back, and she secretly guesses that something is up. On the other hand, the male lead, 甘言重 (Played by Moses Chan 陳豪) is a creative director, who has created the infamous advert for a jewellery brand with the motto 愛是無所不能. However, due to his busy lifestyle, his friendship circle almost ceases to exist, and none of his colleagues want to spend time with him outside of work.
This all changes when he decides to take his holidays and have a long break. During his break, he meets Wu’s character due to both wanting to watch the famous Korean drama on their tablets. They start to become friends but have to part ways when the guide dog that 宋天從 owns starts getting close to 甘言重, who has a fear of dogs. As the episodes are yet to air, I believe that both characters will begin to understand each other more, especially when 宋天從 realises that the advert that has been getting her through life is created by the man she has learnt to like and love.
I think this drama is really good, where Wu’s acting is incredible. She is really convincing, where her acting makes the audience thinks that she is actually blind and cannot see. The drama may seem soppy at first, but it has funny elements combined into it. The cast surrounding both the main leads have their own emotional stories, as well as integrating the comedy aspects of the drama with the main leads.
It is upsetting that Myolie Wu will not be renewing her contract with TVB, meaning this could potentially be her last drama at TVB (and others that may have been recorded but not released yet). Her acting has really improved in the years and she has won awards for being the best actress. I think this is a decent drama for her to be involved in, where it shows her acting skills on a different level. She also sings the theme song for the drama called “天使”, and I find the melody of the song really sweet. Her voice is very soft and suits the song very well, which makes the drama even more emotional than it was before.

I think the whole plot of the drama is unique, and expresses the difficult situations that could arise in society well. There is always love in this world, and no matter what happens to you, there is always a guardian angel by your side.
