The Family Court (simplified Chinese: 走进走出) is a Singaporean Chinese drama which was telecasted on Singapore's free-to-air channel, MediaCorp Channel 8. It made its debut on 1 September 2010 and ended on 1 October 2010. This drama serial consists of 23 episodes, and was screened every weekday night at 9:00 pm. The encore aired from 26 August 2011 to 27 September 2011, every weekday at 5:30pm.


Huang Shuya, Shen Xiping, Lin Leshan and Zhao Ning are lawyers who are poles apart from each other but together with Huang Guanying (Shuya's older brother), they form a tight group of friends. Despite being employed by two different law firms, and at times having to face off against each other in court, the five do not mix work with their personal lives. This is what keeps their friendship going. After work, the group usually gathers at Xiping's family-owned pub to talk about work and their lives. With such a strong friendship forged, a complicated love rectangle is inevitable.
