Thoughts: To be honest, I am kind of upset to find out that this will be a comedic series....since I was hoping for a serious one in this time era. Anyways, I wish there was more info on Sunny's character.....I want him to take on a serious/smart role again since he does great in those. Hehe I just re-watched War and Destiny for him!! Totally love him in there ;)

For some reason, whenever I see Tracy Ip...I would think of Leanne Li, who I do prefer over Tracy. haha...

Overall, nice to see a refreshing cast!  Looking forward to it ;)
