If you are not a salesperson, chances are good that you would be wary of them and your antennae would pop-up when they are approaching. Well, by chance, while looking for my usual cup of tea on YouTube, this unintended click has brought me to Sparks mini-series by DBS Bank.
It was Episode 7 and I found myself watching the full clip lasting 12 minutes and 19 seconds. The setting in yesteryears were nostalgic and the heartbreaking scenes for the Banker, Chester, and his ciient, Mrs Lu, were spot on. The acting, staging, casting, scripts, camera-shoot and all were pretty impeccable. Young Chester was outstanding and promising. He played his role with ease and scored with the just-right-amount of nuances.
It was let on to me by Yasmin Seah in the comments to the clip that young Chester is none other than Nathan Hartono -- the Singaporean singer who was placed second in Sing! China competition in 2016
The blurp from DBS reads: "Inspired by true stories, SPARKS is a mini-series by DBS which follows a group of bankers as they navigate work and their personal lives. A smart and sassy portrayal of how the power of purpose and having the right banking partner enables everyone to get a lot more out of life – and a lot more joy from banking."
