Family Matters (Chinese: 法庭俏佳人) is a 2006 Singaporean Mandarin television drama series which was aired on Mediacorp TV Channel 8. Starring Ivy Lee and Thomas Ong, the series depicts the lives of two lawyers who specialise in divorce cases in the Family Court of Singapore, and also their romance which is fraught with troubles.
As a child, Zhao Shuyang (Ivy Lee) was adopted by Zheng Zhigang (Chen Shucheng) when her parents got separated and remarried. Raised by Zheng, Shuyang grew up to become a promising lawyer, specializing in divorce cases.
Having been loved by her adoptive parents and stepbrother, Zheng Weilun (Terence Cao), Shuyang yearns to marry. Her stepbrother, Weilun, tries to woo her but to no avail, because Shuyang is romantically interested in Gao Ming.
However, Shuyang is shocked when she finds out the truth about Gao Ming (Thomas Ong), her adoptive father's illegitimate son. To make matters worse, she finds herself falling for the ever-flamboyant Gao Ming. Towards the end, she contracts stomach cancer with little hope of survival.
In the last episode, Shuyang chooses Gao Ming and Wei Lun is sent to prison. Shuyang manages to keep her condition in control by undergoing treatment for a year. Gao Ming And Shuyang then get married.
