If this series was a roller coaster ride, it went up quickly, giving anticipation and then declined from there. The first few episodes were enjoyable and contained a few laughs. The last few episodes were absolutely horrible to watch, as it was getting ridiculous. I am not sure if this has to do with the Monday to Sunday slot: airing seven days a week as opposed to the usual five days a week, meaning there was probably an extension of episodes, which eventually led to a poorly scripted series.
Gin (Nancy Wu) is an office manager at GSZ Architects. She looks after Michael (Moses Chan), who is actually her supervisor. Michael possesses a childlike personality, is stubborn for his work, and has no experience in love. Gin, who has secretly admired Michael for years, has at times hinted to Michael, confessing her love, but Michael just does not get it. Gin tries to help Michael take care of his stress, whether at work or his private life, as much as possible so he can focus on his design. Gin hopes by doing so, Michael will realize one day all she has done for him and he can find a balance between work and love. But, unfortunately, this is all of Gin’s daydreams and it never happens. One night, while answering a phone call, Gin is electrocuted by a fake charger. She dies instantly on the spot, but what others do not know is that her soul, composed of different electric currents, and apparently what ghosts are, remained in the phone, waiting for someone to release her.
A year ago, May (Kristal Tin) was hired to be a secretary of GSZ Architects. However, she only worked for a day before getting fired. She had swapped phones with Gin, called her to request for an exchange, and indirectly killed her because of the high voltage. A year later, she redeems the evidence at the police station and is chased by debt collectors. In the midst of frustration and anxiety, she discovers Gin inside the phone. Gin is able to help her dial for help and escape from trouble. Gin, who is still worried about Michael and their fellow coworkers discovers she is able to use May’s body, to continue taking care of them. Gin also helps May to secure the position of office manager at the architecture firm, earning a monthly wage in which May had never imagined, as well as teaching her to buy high-end brands and live in her apartment. May treats this with an easy go, easy come attitude, for she has never experienced such luxury and respect before.
However, this becomes a problem when Michael starts to have feelings for May. May, at first is unsure if she too has feelings for Michael because Gin had used her body several times to help Michael out in various ways. May tries to stop herself from stepping anymore into this love tangle, and tries to avoid Michael, trying to show Gin there is nothing between them. But, Michael realizes it is May that he truly loves. Although he found out that Gin had a crush in him, and May showed some of Gin’s personality, in reality, it was May who he loved because of the added silliness. Gin begins to be jealous of May, unhappy that she waited ten years for Michael and their love did not blossom. At the same time, Gin starts to discover more of her capabilities. Because she is composed of electric currents, she has the ability to send emails and use other electronic devices. Along with these new abilities, and once again using May’s body, Gin starts to use May’s body to seduce another man in front of Michael, sending the wrong message to both Michael and the executive of the architecture company.
Gin and May are on bad terms after Gin’s jealously sparks out of control. May refuses to charge the phone, citing they will go separate ways now. Gin dislikes May for she feels she has given so much to May, but she is ungrateful towards her. May dislikes Gin for she feels she is one person and Gin is another person, Gin cannot force her to act out her personality. May wants her own life back. Gin finally learns to let go of Michael and put her past down when May almost loses her life while trying to save Gin’s spirits from vanishing into thin air. Flash forward a few years later, Michael and May are married with a daughter. And when the daughter goes to find them at night, Gin’s spirit shows up, meaning she is still keeping May and Michael under a close eye.
I do have to give props to Gin (Nancy Wu) and May (Kristal Tin) for that scene where they could start and finish off each other’s lines continuously and flawlessly. And the any other scene I find worthy of mentioning is where May purposely persuades one of her coworkers Charlie (Pierre Ngo) to gamble with a cheater, but Charlie cannot back off because the other party is one of their company’s biggest investors. The aftermath of that scene was quite funny. Other than that, the last half was definitely horrendous to watch, getting more and more ridiculous as the storyline progressed. I would imagine there would be some elements of the architecture firm: drafting, discussing the design as a team, or even just sketching. But, we get none of that. From the beginning to the end, it showcased a finished model. And when the model collapsed, they fixed it up. The ending: extremely creepy.
