Moonlight Resonance

Moonlight Resonance [溏心風暴之家好月圓]

Chung Siu Ho (Lee Sze Kei) 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, Ho discovers that Cho commits adultery with her best friend Yan Hung (Michelle Yim) and she breaks up with him miserably. Ho brings along her children Kam Wing Ho (Raymond Lam), Kam Wing Hing (Fala Chen) and her adopted daughter Suen Ho Yuet (Tavia Yeung) to set up another cake shop for a living.

Hung moves in to live with 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 Cho. Outside the family, Hhung starts expanding their business rapidly and Ho's younger sister Chung Siu Sa (Susanna Kwan) is displeased. Sa decides to fight for the ownership of their cake shop's brand name in court with Hung and their relationship with Hung further deteriorates.

Apart from the cake shop business, 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 Yuet at the same time. On the other hand, Ho's younger son 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 Shun (Bosco Wong).

Ho works hard unconditionally to strive for the well being of her family members. Hung, on the other hand, is a very mean person who values her own benefits only. 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.

I've already seen the first five episodes and I must say they were so exciting to watch. Each day I would wait impatiently for the next episode to be uploaded. I've always thought that the series would always be boring in the beginning and will soon get better near the end of the drama. But Moonlight Resonance was different.

I really liked how the episodes would go from past to present showing flashbacks of what happened in the past and how the divorce came upon and what happened to the children. But it can get really confusing with all the children since it was such a big family, but after the first few episodes you kind of get the idea of who is who.

I'm currently working on Moonlight Resonance - Episode 5 review..i'll be providing a thorough review that includes screen caps, translations of dialogue, and overall thoughts! Please be sure to come back and enjoy!
