Introduction:
Chung Siu Ho (Louise Lee) and her husband Kam Tai Cho (Ha Yu) have been working hard for many years to establish a famous reputation for their Moonlight Cake Shop. However, Siu Ho discovers that Tai Cho commits adultery with her best friend Yan Hung (Michelle Yim) and she breaks up with him miserably. Siu Ho brings along her children Kam Wing Ho (Raymond Lam), Kam Wing Hing (Chen Fala) and her adopted daughter Suen Ho Yuet (Tavia Yeung) to set up another cake shop for a living.

Yan Hung moves in to live with Tai Cho and she starts playing tricks in the family. She tries pleasing her mother-in-law Sheh Kwan Lai (Lee Heung Kam) in every ways while disuniting her stepson and Tai Cho. Outside the family, Yan Hung starts expanding their business rapidly and Siu Ho's younger sister Chung Siu Sa (Susanna Kwan) is displeased. Siu Sa decides to fight for the ownership of their cake shop's brand name in court with Yan Hung and their relationship with Yan Hung further deteriorates.

Apart from the cake shop business, Siu Ho also spends a lot of efforts on her children. Her oldest son Kam Wing Ka (Moses Chan) is not interested in managing the cake shop at all and he indulges himself on stock trading. He also develops an entangling relationship with his cousin Lo Ka Mei (Kate Tsui) and Suen Ho Yuet at the same time. On the other hand, Wing Ho takes up the role of a father in the family and he works hard all the time to earn a living. Wing Ho loves his childhood friend Chau (Linda Chung) whole-heartedly but Chau is in love with the doctor Ling Chi Sun (Bosco Wong).

Siu Ho works hard unconditionally to strive for the well being of her family members. Yan Hung, on the other hand, is a very mean person who values her own benefits only. Tai Cho is caught between the two women all the time and he feels helpless. One day, a disaster happens at the cake shop. Here comes a time when human nature, family bonds and love are brought to a trail.

The Story

Everyone couldn't get over the Heart of Greed fever, so naturally, we would have a higher expection or some sort towards this new drama.

Basically, I see not much change in the storyline, it's okay, because we love it! All the characters sort of changed, and new characters are introduced.. We all would just sit back and wish that this would be equally good as Heart of Greed. But I am curious, why is it like 60 episodes?? That's very long!! Please correct me if it is only 40 episodes.

I think Raymond, Susanna and Michelle are gonna stand out in this drama this time.. That's what I think though.. What do you all think??

Hmm, about the relationships, I am really interested in the Moses-Tavia combination, at least for once she's not with Bosco or Raymond, so that is quite a fresh start. I am interested in the blood boiling relationship between the 2 families, and how many tear shedding scenes are there going to be.. (:

The Advertising

Wow, this series is really recieving full advertising man!! I was so stumped when I saw the Moonlight Resonance bloggings!!! OH MY GOD. Anyway, is it really their blogging?? Or is it they posted these just to make us understand the characters more. Anyway, here is the links.

Haiz, Chris Lai and Bosco Wong doesn't have the blog!!! :(

The Themesong

I have not fully grasped the meaning of this themesong yet, but indeed the new one sounds as depressing as the previous one!! I like both songs actually, cos Susanna Kwan, undoubtedly can SING VERY WELL!!! Omg I am just a big fan of the songs she sings!! The past themesongs she sang for some classic tvb series were just SO NICE AND SO PERFECT! Really talented.. Can sing and can act!

Poster *No offence, disclaimer.*
Since this is a grand production, my comments shall be longer this time. Omg, I was appalled when I saw the poster.. It's like so photoshop-ish to the extent that some of them look really fake.. Tell me, what is the difference in the poster of Moonlight Resonance and Heart of Greed?! Other than some very obvious changes to the sitting arrangement *i will explain that*, the colour [the blending of colours is not bad..], and the abalone is replaced by the mooncake, what is the difference??

I thought the producer once said that he doesn't want people to think that this is "Heart of Greed"?? *If you get what I mean..*

Michelle Mai and Susanna Kwan has a change of seats, since they have a change of character.. Michelle is the BAD GUY! Omg, my nice nice aunt!!! :( Raymond Lam and Bosco Wong has a change of seats too, since Raymond has gotten into the family and Bosco became the guest star instead. Shan't explicitly elaborate the rest for now, I will wait till the plot and stuff comes out. [HAHA, actually all of us know what is going to happen in Moonlight Resonance. Don't we?]

And Michelle's hair!! It totally stumped me... I mean like, a bad guy doesn't necessarily need to have bad hair rite??

For me, I prefer the old poster, the new one is too HD for me to accept I guess. Makes them look really fake. What's your opinion then??
