Lee Si Kei
Generations come and go,
but the "love" remains forever.
CHUNG SIU HO (Lee Sze Kei, Louise) and her husband KAM TAI CHO (Ha Yu) have been working hard for many years to establish a famous reputation for their Moonlight Cake Shop. However, HO discovers that CHO commits adultery with her best friend YAN HUNG (Yim, Michelle) and she breaks up with him miserably. HO brings along her children KAM WING HO (Lam, Raymond), KAM WING HING (Chen Fala) and her adopted daughter SUEN HO YUET (Yeung Yi) to set up another cake shop for a living.
HUNG moves in to live with CHO and she starts playing tricks in the family. She tries pleasing her mother-in-law SHEH KWAN LAI (Lee Heung Kam) in every ways while disuniting her stepson and CHO. Outside the family, HUNG starts expanding their business rapidly and HO's younger sister CHUNG SIU SA (Kwan Kuk Ying, Susanna) is displeased. SA decides to fight for the ownership of their cake shop's brand name in court with HUNG and their relationship with HUNG further deteriorates.
Apart from the cake shop business, HO also spends a lot of efforts on her children. Her oldest son KAM WING KA (Chan Ho, Moses) is not interested in managing the cake shop at all and he indulges himself on stock trading. He also develops an entangling relationship with his cousin LO KA MEI (Tsui Tsz Shan, Kate) and YUET at the same time. On the other hand, HO's younger son WING HO takes up the role of a father in the family and he works hard all the time to earn a living. WING HO loves his childhood friend CHAU (Chung Ka Yan) whole-heartedly but CHAU is in love with the doctor LING CHI SHUN (Wong Chung Chak).
HO works hard unconditionally to strive for the well being of her family members. HUNG, on the other hand, is a very mean person who values her own benefits only. CHO is caught between the two women all the time and he feels helpless. One day, a disaster happens at the cake shop. Here comes a time when human nature, family bonds and love are brought to a trail.

# Although the storyline will be brand new and totally unrelated to the original Heart, the series’ tentative Chinese title is still "Tong Sum Fung Bo II" (Heart Of Greed II). The backbone of the series will still be about family rivals and conflicts, but the family business is no longer abalone.
# The new series will revolve around the Moon Cake industry; the family runs and owns a Moon Cake pastry shop
# The series will release during Mid-Autumn Festival
# In Heart of Greed II, the “disliked” [star from the original series] Yoyo Mung is excluded and replaced by Kate Tsui
# Kate and Tavia Yeung will develop a love triangle with Moses Chan
# Bosco Wong and Raymond Lam fight for Linda Chung
# Moses and Raymond are brothers in the new series; Ha Yu and Lee See Kei play their parents
# Tavia is Lee See Kei’s adopted daughter
# This time around, Susanna Kwan acts as Lee See Kei’s sister
# In Heart II, Michelle Yim is the concubine [of Ha Yu] and becomes the new series’ big villain. In order to marry Michelle, Ha Yu doesn’t hesitate and divorces Lee See Kei. Michelle devises a plot to make Lee See Kei lose custody of her children. Poor Lee See Kei has to then survive on her own…
# Originally, they wanted veteran Law Lan to join the series and play Ha Yu’s mother, but she wasn’t satisfied with the role, so she turned it down
Detailed Description of Plot[ - Credit: MetalAZNWarrior
# The family has a fortune of $1 billion with a mooncake pastry shop.
# Ha Yu has seven children - Moses Chan, Raymond Lam, Tavia Yeung, Lai Lok Yi, Fala Chen, Wan Ka Hang, and Linda Chung. Linda is not Ha Yu’s birth daughter, but is Michelle Yim’s daughter. Tavia is an adopted daughter.
# Lee Heung Kam joins to act as Ha Yu’s mother, who uses schemes to arrive at justice. She doesn’t like Lee See Kei, so she frequently scolds her. Everyone in the family listens to her. Her nature is almost like a little kid. She says her role is heavy; she appears in every episode.
# Ha Yu and Lee See Kei are again a husband and wife, but from the start they are divorced. Each have custody of three children; Moses, Lai Lok Yi, and Wan Ka Hang are with Ha Yu while Raymond, Tavia, and Fala are with Lee See Kei. At the very end, the family will be reunited.
# Lee See Kei’s role this time is a carefree, good person. She frequently tells gags to make people laugh. However, when she lectures, she will still speak “golden words”. She is often teased as being “fat” by Susanna Kwan.
# Lee See Kei and Susanna are sisters this time, but they will frequently cause trouble for their father. Susanna’s nature is radical and likes doing what she wants. It is another evil role. However, her evilness is also loveable. It’s because of her good heart that she does bad. Luckily, her father and elder sister are there to mend things for her.
# Wayne Lai and Susanna will have a “brother/sister” relationship. Wayne’s role is a pastry master.
# Michelle is the new villain. Her character was a worker at the cake factory, but schemed to steal Lee See Kei’s husband. Furthermore, she sent Ha Yu’s children overseas to study, not letting them stay by their father’s side. She spoils them on purpose.
# Moses’ character this time around is a player and spoiled. He will be involved with many women, but his main romantic storyline is a love triangle with Tavia and Kate Tsui.
# Tavia’s role is similar to her role in the last series. She will be someone whose life is suppressed, but her nature is still happy. She has quite a lot of scenes where she will be taunted by Susanna.
# Raymond’s character cares very much about his family. He says his role is heavy, so he has a lot of stress. He’s going to go to a pastry shop to learn how to make cakes.
# Linda’s character is a physician. Her role is similar to “‘Seung Joi Sum” in the last series, however, she will not cry as much. Her relationships with Raymond and Bosco is a painful love story. Linda says that her role is almost like “Seung Joi Sum” - they are both kind people - but the way she portrays this new role has to be different from last time.
# Bosco will not appear until after the 10th episode. His character is a doctor in the gynecology department. This time, Bosco’s character is unrelated to Ha Yu’s family, so his scenes will be less. However, Bosco is not worried because last time Raymond’s character was also an “outsider”, but the response to his role was very good. Because he has to fight with Raymond for Linda, he is worried that he will be called a girlfriend snatcher.
# Kate plays Susanna’s daughter; she herself is also a troublemaker. Because of her greed for money, she pursues Moses’ character. The story says that Kate and Susanna returned from Portugal, so they have to speak Portuguese and English.
# In the very end, Tavia will end up with Moses
# Fala’s character is a mute, so she is learning sign language. Fala will be paired up with Yeung Tin Ging. Tavia and Fala have a lot of scenes together, so Tavia also has to learn sign language.
# Shirley Yeung and Jack Wu act as the young Lee See Kei and Ha Yu.
