Though they argue about business, they are really arguing about their relationship.
* Our leading man, Chi Hai Dong (Wu Xiu Bo), is surprised when Luo Li assumes their relationship is at the point that they are ready to move in together. My thought? Too soon Luo Li, too soon.

* Our leading lady, Luo Li (Yao Chen), moved into the physical relationship with her heart on the line. Unfortunately for her, Hai Dong is not as ready as she is. My thought? She is right to stop their romantic relationship if he’s not at the same place as she is. Proceed when and if he is ready.
* Mei Yu and Qian Kuen deal with his affair in a round about way. Mei Yu decided that she can accept his affair assuming that he will not continue it. Qian Kuen has not given his lover, Shi Jiang, the decision they are breaking up. He needs to do this soon.
