My cousin called me up last night to inform me that her daughter is looking for a good medical assisting school because she is interested in pursuing education in the field of allied health. Then our conversation went to the latest TVB drama which she is watching now. My cousin said she is now watching Beauty Knows No Pain. I am very looking forward to watching this 20-episode TVB drama. Beauty Knows No Pain replaces When Lane Merge. It stars some of my favourite actresses such as Michelle Yim, Maggie Cheung and Joyce Tang Lai Ming. Oh, the actors are Joe Ma Tak Chung and Dominic Lam Ka Wah. It was during the filming of Beauty Knows No Pain that Michelle’s boyfriend, Wan Chi Keung passed away from cancer. Tragic.
WONG HOI KING (Michelle Yim) is successful in both career and love life. However, she accidentally discovers that her husband CHIN KWONG LUNG (Dominic Lam) is committing adultery. In order to maintain the relationship, KING is willing to take the risk of getting pregnant despite her high age. Pregnancy has imposed great pressure on her daily life as well as her career. Her aggressive subordinate SA YUEN KEI (Maggie Cheung) therefore seizes the chance to take up her duties. KEI is a bold and decisive person at work but she is caught in a quadrangular relationship by falling in love with the married man KO CHI LIK (Joe Ma).
Discouraged by the relationship failures of her bosses, secretary YU MAN YAU (Joyce Tang) further loses her confidence. YAU always has a sense of inferiority because of her “outstanding” body shape. Encouraged by her colleague CHI NAM (Power Chan), YAU decides to boost her self-esteem by getting plastic surgery. She immediately becomes the sexiest goddess on the Internet and the hottest brand spokesperson in town. After getting famous and rich, YAU suddenly realizes that this is not what she really wants…
