Nip Chi Yuen [Steven Ma], who works in the anti-smuggling camp, is determined to wipe out the Tau’s Fort, which is the stronghold for salt smugglers. He pretends to be a down-and-out scholar. Tau Sing Suet [Tavia Yeung Yi], daughter of the chief smuggler, sympathizes with Yuen and puts him up in the village. Later, they even become fond of each other. During an anti-smuggling operation, Suet is badly hurt and has since been separated from Yuen and her family.
Fortunately she is saved by Wu Ting Hin [Raymond Wong Ho Yin], son of salt merchant Wu Kin [Kwok Fung]. Hin takes her home. One day, Suet is horrified to see the dead bodies of her parents being hung on the wall of the city tower, and that the official standing on the top of the tower telling the public not to sell smuggled salt is none other than the man she misses day and night. She is heartbroken, and her love for Yuen turns into hatred from that moment on.
Hin finds a job for Suet at the salt company his family runs to help her overcome her unhappiness. To repay him, she devotes herself entirely to the job. As time goes by, Hin starts to fall in love with her. However his critical illness causes him to hesitate in expressing his love for her. Suet’s real identity comes to light when her younger uncle reappears out of the blue. Hin, for fear that his family will report Suet, proposes to her

Due to the success of Rosy Business, TVB decide to broadcast Sweetness in Hong Kong. It was originally warehouse and released overseas, now Hong Kong viewers can finally see Sweetness. I hope it would have good ratings. Sweetness was a great series and I really enjoyed it. TVB made a smart move =]
