Life Made Simple (Traditional Chinese: 阿旺新傳) is a TVB modern drama series broadcast in October 2005. The series is shown to celebrate TVB's 38th Anniversary.

The series is an indirect sequel to 2002's Square Pegs (戇夫成龍). The main cast features Roger Kwok, Jessica Hsuan, and Leila Tong from the original series and new cast including Bosco Wong, and Paul Chun. The indirect sequel takes place in the modern era instead of the ancient setting of its prequel.

Synopsis[edit]

The modern version of Ah Wong,
Steps out of his simple world.

Ding Sheung-Wong (Roger Kwok) is a man in his thirties but with an IQ of a seven year old. People would make fun of him by calling crazy, but he would tell them that he is just simple. His best friend Wong Kei-Fung (Jessica Hsuan), whom were friends since they were young, used to play a game where he was the husband and she was the wife; hence, this is why Wong refers to Fung as his "little wife". One day Fung told Wong that she would have to leave to the United States for four years of college.

When Fung returns to Hong Kong, she finds a job at the Chung (鍾) Corporation where she works under the management of Chung Kam-Wing (Paul Chun) and his son Michael Chung Chi-Chung (Bosco Wong). Later Kam-Wing finds out that Wong is his biological son and recruits him to his company, as well. Angel On Kei (Leila Tong), Fung's cousin, who returned with Fung from the States has a crush on Chi-Chung. But Chi-Chung has a crush on Fung. Fung feels that Wong is the one that can make her truly happy but is puzzled whether to choose Chi-Chung or Wong...
