Shuixian (Yvonne Lim) was forced by her foster mother to marry Lihai (Shaun Chen), whom later died in an accident, leaving Shuixian a young widow. Yueman (Ann Kok) is married to Jiaqing (Zhang Wenxiang), an abusive man. One day, Shuixian accidentally kills Jiaqing but was saved by Yueman who claimed Jiaqing was killed by his debtors.

Trivia[edit]

  • This drama was not originally planned to be a co-production with ntv7.
  • This drama is also the first Singaporean production after long-running Taiwanese drama Love, which had been airing on local screens since Year 2008.
  • Zeng Youbao's nickname is "Buaya". Buaya means crocodile in Malay, and thus he can be seen wearing shoes made of crocodile skin leather.
  • Shaun Chen & Yvonne Lim second collaboration after Your Hand In Mine
  • Despite the namesake though, Kampong Ties did not show any Malays or Indians acting in the drama. The characters in this drama are also not as caring and harmonious as the Singaporean viewers thought. Some episodes in Singapore are rated PG for some violent scenes.
