    Golden Faith part 2: Dicey Business?
    I have to admit I never thought I would be so engulfed in this series. I was planning to watch it when it all comes out and when I have more time (which would be in June) but I had a little time this busy vacation and I said why not?

    First few episodes doesn’t really grab you, its basically Bobby’s character with nothing and raising up from the ashes and having a steady job and stop gambling. Things get interesting, when he returns to HK and really pick up when Love is thrown into the show. Though it has its draggy part, I haven't noticed though... MAJOR SPOILERS ahead

    Golden Faith part 2: Dicey Business?

    I can’t help but to think of the similarities that these two series share. Golden Faith has to be one of my favorites series of all-time, because of the amazing chemistry exhibited by Gallen and Jess and the hurdles they had to jump to finally be together.

    So how are the two series similar?

    Cast for Reference
    DB
    Kiu Jing Chor (Michael Miu)
    Lee Ching Wan (Jessica Hsuan)
    Chai Foon Cheung (Bobby Au-Yueng)
    Cheung Loi Fu (Bosco Wong)
    Kiko Chung Chui Yee (Tavia Yeung)

    GF
    Ivan Ting Sin Boon (Gallen Lo)
    Rachel Ching Tin Lam (Jessica Hsuan)
    Chung Sau Hong (Deric Wan)
    Oscar Ting Sin Hang (Raymond Lam)
    Tam Chu Mei (Tavia Yeung)

    The Biggest Similarity is the Love Triangle.
    One Girl, Two Guys. One Decision.

    Ching Wan was friends with (Fai Lo) Ah Cheung. She met CEO (as she call him before) Ah Chor, and always admired him. She got involved with both Ah Chung and Ah Chor, who are sworn-Brothers.

    Ching Wan was help by both guys though rough and difficult times. Ah Chor help get past her parents death that she had kept tucked away all these years. She was help by both to quit gambling. And Ah Chueng as always had been there for her, in a very open mutal relationship, as she had done the same for him

    Ah Chor broke it off because he was being blackmail and it would put her in greater danger if he was involved with him, he let her go despite loving her. From friendship with Ah Chor grew into a relationship. But when Ah Chor lost everything, Ah Wan was there. And he came back for her when she was in the middle of a relationship with Ah Cheung. Now Ah Wan is faced with a difficult decision of which path to take The Safer Path (one with stability and openness) or Love with everything that comes with it…including several broken hearts.

    Now doesn’t that seem familiar to Golden Faith?

    Jess again this time as Rachel stuck in the middle of two guys one who is safe and stable, the other is who she truly loves but has broken her heart numerous times. Ivan and Ah Hong are brothers fighting for the same girl…in which Jess here chooses Ivan.

    Sigh I really do think it’s the Curse of the Long Series for Jess…

    Anyways my prediction is that she chooses Ah Chor but in the end, ends up with neither.

    Bobby and Jess’s chemistry is wonderful… as Best Friends. Which I love seeing them together but I don’t see any romantic love between the two. I say better off as friends.

    Michael’s character is not cut and dry bad guy or good guy, he very complex. He is not perfect, he has made so many mistakes. I have to admit I never though Jess and Michael would have such chemistry. I really do believe that Michael’s character really loves Jess. But then there is always trouble in paradise for these two. I think they been together for less then a few days as a couple (in which they slept together for sure on more than 3 occasion, shocker there). This next thing is mind blowing, I don’t remember the last time Jess’s character actually cheated, okay I don’t mean emotionally cheated, Cold Blooded Warm Heart which was over 10 years ago! Poor Bobby…

    Simple equations for DB
    Ah Chor + Ah Wan = Bad Luck
    Ah Chueng + Ah Wan = Good Luck

    I know that only very bad things can happen in the end of the series… lets just see with the last 5 episode… then a real review! And more comparison with Golden Faith (yes there is tons more)
