Fans of Mediacorp dramas in the ‘90s will definitely remember Stepping Out. (P/S: We're also sure its theme song by Taiwanese rockers Power Station is playing in your head now too.)
The period epic, which starts off in the 1920s and spans three decades, follows the lives of a group of Chinese immigrants in Singapore.
Stepping Out boasted an all-star cast — Xie Shaoguang, Terence Cao, Cynthia Koh, Tay Ping Hui, Ivy Lee, Chunyu Shan Shan and Yvonne Lim — and it swept almost all the professional category awards it was nominated for at the Star Awards in 1999.
Shaoguang won Best Actor, Cynthia won Best Actress, and Ping Hui was named Best Supporting Actor. The drama also won Best Drama Serial and Best Theme Song (see what we mean?).
