But that’s not all! Our boy has gone from romantically challenged to being in high demand; it soon turns out that his colleague and flatmate, Ling Siu Muk (Anson Lo), is in love with him too. For an office with only six people, that real estate branch has a seriously high concentration of gay/bisexual men. (And considering that three of those male employees are played by members of the Cantopop boyband sensation MIRROR, it’s probably also the best-looking real estate office you’ve ever seen. Enough to get one to consider moving house on a regular basis. 🤔)
This love triangle is a real headache for Ah Tin. Firstly, he claims — a little too loudly — that he only likes women with big boobs. Secondly, he has the emotional maturity of a child, and struggles with making decisions. Between this and the fact that he’s a nice boy who never wants to hurt anyone’s feelings, Ah Tin is much more likely to kick the can down the road, in the hopes that problems and dilemmas will somehow magically resolve themselves. Of course, this backfires all the time, putting him in super awkward positions precisely because he can’t seem to make up his mind one way or the other and put his foot down. Sometimes it makes you really want to just slap that boy.
Over the course of 15 episodes, Ah Tin, accompanied by a likeable cast of best friends and colleagues, navigates (or flails) his way through work and life, coming to terms with his own emotions and learning to recognise and acknowledge who he really wants to spend his life with. There is some filler as side characters have their own minor story arcs, but overall it’s cute AF.
At this point, I’m just going to take a moment to add an Ah Muk/Anson Lo appreciation GIF:
