In episode 2 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) decides to cut ties with Hanson Ho (Chris Lai), her boyfriend of four years after finding out he is just composed of lies.
Cherry: You don’t have to say anything.
Hanson: Why are you so mad? Is there a need? I still have some time before boarding the flight, so I decided to talk with you. But honestly, if the Hong Kong men working in China told you they didn’t have a woman there, it wouldn’t be normal right? Compared to other men, I am not the one taking initiatives. They came to my side.
Cherry: Hanson Ho!
Hanson: Originally, we were fine. But you insisted on seeing [my phone]. No one wants to hurt you.
Cherry: We’ve been together for four years.
Hanson: I know. The truth always hurts. But you are already 30 something. Be more mature.
Cherry: You lied for a good four years.
Hanson: The women in China are just a game. You are different. I treat you seriously.
Cherry: Seriously? This is called taking it seriously?
Hanson: What are you throwing? I’m trying to clear things up with you. I’ve been together with you for four years and paying off an apartment for two years. Is that not called wanting to get married? You are almost going to be at a high-risk pregnancy. Did I not want you for that? And my mother loves you dearly. Where can you find a mother-in-law like that?
Cherry: Do you know what you are talking about??!!
Hanson: See, you are like that! When I tell lies, you say I’m fake. When I tell the truth, you don’t want to hear. That puts me in a very hard position. It’s time for me to take my flight. Goodbye.
