[Hits or misses of Hero]
By Joanna Goh
HIT: All-rounded and well-developed characters
While the drama and its characters mainly orbit around the lives of its three leads – Zhou Fada (Shaun Chen), Ye Xiao Ying (Chen Hanwei) and Zhang Weixiong (Jesseca Liu), this show is more than just about the trio. Its supporting characters are not overlooked in favour of the “bigger guys” and each person had an individual arc and story to tell, such as the former top actor-turned-druggie (Luo Bei, played by Peter Yu) trying to clean up his act and the simple-minded and timid Guan Mei Mei (played by Bonnie Loo) who stammers but harbours dreams of becoming a singer someday, just to name a few.
These small “heroes” were just as engaging as the leads and at the end of the series not one person’s story was left unaccounted for and that is a well-developed drama to us.
HIT: Bonnie Loo and He Ying Ying’s acting performance as a pair of fraternal twin sisters
A pair of young actresses who were as “steady” as the veterans in their acting delivery as fraternal twins, Guan Meiyu and Guan Meimei, is He Ying Ying and Bonnie Loo.
Likewise, Bonnie is proving to be a young actress who can hold her own against the veterans and her portrayal as a gullible and kind-hearted Meimei is one of her best roles to date. .
