The following is not a recap but a commentary on the particular episode in the title. Major spoilers and Ruco Chan-love alert. Originally posted at www.point2e.com.
EPISODES 1 to 3
I watched all 3 episodes at one go. Why Ruco didn’t appear in episode 1 is obvious. Question is how come it is so? Ahhh plot thickens. I am just disappointed Tavia’s role is as boringly expected. Oh how I wish she was as she was in the sales presentation. But she is funny and effective in this role.
I must say this; Kevin impresses. I like his serious deadpan look. But it is Ruco that makes me go oooohs and ahhhs. Physically he is slimmer than in Outbound Love where he was arguably the biggest there but in here he looks physically fit. His first scene was mesmerising because he had the right moves, the right clothes and right hair. In fact I love his off duty looks as well which was how he used to dress until he became obsessed with the current wannabe hip hop look and sometimes the Amish look. I want him back in tight jeans, great sneakers, tight shirt and open button checkered shirt, please!!! He looks simply sensational. Acting wise, what more can I say? His character Nik is intriguing. I think he plays off well with Kevin who by the way had a hot make out scene with Tavia.
And why is Jonathan Cheung now forever stuck with the Fan surname? Like he copyrighted it.
I have no complaints about the story or the acting even if I am confused why some unnecessary characters are there to dilute the plot (Tony Hung, etc). But man…. Ruco looks and is hot. Sizzling hot. So handsome.
But hey, other than eyecandy (where for obvious reasons the 2 men are far more beautiful than the girls in this series and also much much sexier), the story’s good and the acting’s good.
You know what, I think I will post one hot Ruco picture for every entry in this post from now on! I am just happy Ruco is back to clingy pants. As for Kevin, admittedly he is much too slim and face a bit frozen but he is still a good looking man and the character of super serious super detective is really right up his alley. What I don’t get is why set this at some high end service apartment, wouldn’t it be better at some major huge commercial building to justify the number of security guards and some sticky security situation? It just feels too much like Hotelier.
Anyway, Ruco picture of the day!
Sorry if this has so little plot in my writing. I am back to being Ruco-fied. Let me calm down a bit and I will talk about the plot at some point. What we do know is Ruco was Kevin, he did something to save someone, changed his looks and back to HK and up to no good. He is of course the long lost twin brother Kevin isn’t aware he has. Tavia met serious Kevin but interacted with Ruco (looking like Kevin) and had a one night stand in one of the creepiest scene. Why creepiest? They were making out when she said she felt like someone’s watching them and there was a huge portrait of her father in the small room and earlier we are shown her father sits behind the portrait to see the proceedings in the room through the small hole in the portrait. Of course he wasn’t there then but what if? Ruco (as Kevin) said to her whoever’s watching can watch and learn and she laughed and they continued kissing and I was thinking what if her dad is behind the portrait and he is looking at his daughter having sex with a stranger guy.
