Parental Guidance (Chinese: 奉子成婚) is a Singaporean drama produced by local TV station Mediacorp and airs on MediaCorp TV Channel 5 on Thursdays at 8.30pm starting on 8 February 2007 to 3 May 2007 for a total of 13 episodes. Parental Guidance's second season is currently airing.


The Family

James Seto played by Adrian Pang is a lawyer and playboy in his 30s. James lives in a dingy apartment populated by pests and rodents, and is at loggerheads with Ling.

Ling Toh played by Jessica Hsuan is a highly ambitious and successful lawyer whose dream is to become a partner in a prominent law firm. Ling had a difficult childhood which led her to believe that marriage with someone who was not completely compatible with her was merely shackling herself.

Jocelyn Seto played by Fang Rong is 10 years old, wise beyond her years. Cautious, reserved and wary, Jocelyn wants to keep her family together but has serious doubts on the suitability of James and Ling as potential parents.

Jonathan Seto played by Kyle Chan is 8 years old, sweet, bubbly, the eternal optimist who sees the good in everyone. Jonathan’s biggest problem is he’s highly allergic to everything – dust, eggs, peanuts, animals, wool, grass, etc. In the second season of Parental Guidance, Jonathan is played by Bryan Chung.

Jolene Seto played by Jessica Cuipa is 6 years old, adorable, cheeky and suffering from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). She requires tremendous amounts of attention and time and nurturing -- all of which James and Ling are clearly deficient in.

Other Characters

Al played by Chua En Lai is James' pupil at the law firm where James' works. Al is very talkative and seems to only be good at gossiping, but also does a lot of the actual work at James' firm. After Terence, Al is also seen to be a metrosexual, even teaching Jocelyn to knit in episode when James and Ling did not know how to.

Terence played by Jason Chan is Ling's boss and her former fiancee. He is a metrosexual and is obsessed with his looks and plans.

Mathilda Gong played by Pam Oei is James' boss. She is a senior partner at the firm where James works. She is a career woman and is only concerned about her clients and employees.

Patrick Seto played by Kenneth Tsang is James' dad. He is old but is still a playboy at heart. He has a 23 year old girlfriend called Cherry.

Cecilia Seto played by Lok Meng Chue is James' mother and Patrick's former wife. She is divorced from Patrick but at the end of the season, they rekindle their romance and plan to get remarried.
