118 II also known as (要要发 II) ran for 218 episode drama series produced by Mediacorp Channel 8.

The show replaced the second half of the 7.00 pm drama timeslot, airing weekdays from November 29, 2016, 7.30 pm to 8.00 pm on weekdays and had a repeat telecast at 9.30am the following day airing together with news-current affairs programme Hello Singapore at 6.30pm.

Plot[edit]

Hong Daming (Chew Chor Meng) is a positive and generous man, as his coffee shop and house number are both "118", the people around him gave him the nickname of "118" (or 要要发), much to his delight. Together with his wife, Liu Meimei (Pan Lingling), he makes a living by running the coffee-shop, and are well known in Tiong Bahru. Whenever someone is in need, they would always seek Daming for help.

His family lives in a 3-room flat, which was built in pre-war years, above the coffee shop, he has 4 children. The children are named Hong Shunfeng (Dennis Chew), Hong Shunshui (Xu Bin), Hong Jinzhi (Ya Hui) and Hong Yuye (Somaline Ang).

Having 6 people living in a 3-room flat is cramped-up enough, yet he also rents out a room to "Ah Niang", a middle-aged man whose original name is Li Weiliang (Chen Hanwei). Weiliang studied fashion design in France, but circumstances led him to simply run a stall in 118's coffee-shop, selling dumplings with the recipe that his mother left for him.

Weiliang was not the only addition to the cramped flat. Later, Meimei's elder sister – Liu Jiejie (Liu Lingling) and her family also came to live with 118 when her husband, Zhang Tiancheng's (Chen Tianwen) business failed. Daming's own younger sister, Hong Shanshan (Sheila Sim), and her daughter also came to live with him "temporarily" when her husband disappeared mysteriously. Kind-hearted by nature, Daming felt that they must have come to him because they were at their wit's end, he would rather make room for them by having his own sons sleep in the living room, than to chase them away heartlessly.

As such, the story unfolds with this myriad of personalities living under the same roof and hanging around the 118 coffee-shop, where many dramatic yet comedic events took place…

"118" presents the positive side of a Singaporean – passionate, practical, caring, resilient, faithful, tolerant and forward-looking – while also touching on the lesser side of our personalities. Through the dramatic play of events, we are able to see ourselves in the many characters, who are in fact a mirror of the good and bad sides of all of us.

Opening sequence[edit]

The opening begins with the "118" building from Season 1 assembling together, with Hong Daming (Chew Chor Meng), Liu Meimei (Pan Lingling), Hong Shunshui (Xu Bin) and Wang Shunfeng (Dennis Chew) standing together at the front of the building. The building gets renovated, and the "118" logo gets a re-makeover, with a more modernised appearance. Many lion dancers are seen in front of the building, symbolising the re-opening of the 118 coffeeshop.

It then zooms into the coffeeshop with a banner and the entire 118 family consisting Hong Daming, Liu Meimei, Hong Shunshui, Wang Shunfeng, Hong Jinzhi (Ya Hui) and Wang Yuye (Somaline Ang) together with Uncle Niang (Chen Hanwei), with his wife, Hong Shanshan (Sheila Sim) and Shunfeng's wife, Chen Meizhen (Sora Ma). The banner is cut, symbolising the start of the 118 coffeeshop business run by Shunfeng and Shunshui together.

Next, we have Shunfeng being pulled by Meizhen on his left, and Meimei pulling him on his right as they get into a heated argument in the living room in the 118 house. Fortunately, Daming steps in and stops the dispute between Meimei and Shunfeng.

At the same time, we get to see the new casts in Liu Jizhou's (Bryan Wong) house, #02-228, nagging at Liu Dagong (Zhu Houren) and Liu Dali (Brandon Wong)about financial issues while waving around some cash in his hand. Dagong hits Dali on the head for his oblivion. Irritated, Dagong smacks away Jizhou, who bumps into Li Taimei (Jeanette Aw) and her father, Li Jinlong (Ha Yu). Terrified, Jizhou drops the cash in surprise, but Jinlong helps pick it up, leaving Jizhou feel comforted and assured.

Pizza@119 has a new restaurant separated from the 118 coffeeshop unlike in season 1, the workers there are now Zhang Zhenhui (Nick Teo) and Zhang Tiancheng (Chen Tianwen). The restaurant is run under Tiancheng's wife, Liu Jiejie (Liu Lingling). Yuye pays Zhenhui a visit and they seem to get along in the kitchen, while Tiancheng is seen lazying around on a seat, until Jiejie walks in, Tiancheng immediately gets up and behaves himself, giving Jiejie an impression that he has changed for a better good compared to season 1, as he offers her his seat while tidying up the restaurant. Outside the restaurant, we see Zhenhui abandoning Yuye to take shelter in the restaurant due to a heavy rain. However, Liu Yazhou (Jeremy Chan), who is also Jizhou's younger brother, offers to help carry Yuye's umbrella. To repay his kindness, Yuye smiles at him and thanks him, the two of them watch as Isabella (Hayley Woo) walks in front of them on the same pedestrian, having her umbrella get blown away by a strong gust of wind. Zhenhui sees this, and mistakenly sees Isabella as Vivian (deceased in season 1 - Hayley Woo) and offers her his umbrella, the two couples stare at each other awkwardly and enviously.

Shunshui is resting at the coffeeshop, swatting away some flies, he sees Ke'Ai (Carrie Wong) walking in and his heart starts pumping as the two of them embrace each other. This is cut shortly, after Boris (Desmond Ng), who is pictured as a fly, interrupts the two as he zooms in between Shunshui and Ke'Ai, trying to get her attention. Shunshui first notices this, and immediately swats Boris away, leaving the two of them glaring at each other and Ke'Ai confused.

As a Pokémon Go reference, Liu Jizhou and Hong Tianpao (Zhang Yaodong) are in a gym battle, with the CP indicators above them. Jinlong is seen cheering for Jizhou as the two of them battle for Taimei's attention, at first, it appears that Tianpao is taking the lead, but in a twist of events, Jizhou wins.

Jinzhi takes a stroll across Tiong Bahru, with her bodyguard, Deng Bo (Elvin Ng) following behind her, he protects her from all sorts of obstacles and pests. Once they were all cleared, Deng Bo admiration for Jinzhi grows as his heart pumps, indicating his growing crush on her, but as Jinzhi looks back at him, Deng Bo pretends not to care for her and hides his crush for her. Shanshan and Uncle Niang are seen to be attending to their baby along the corridors under the buildings of Tiong Bahru. Shanshan immediately books for a taxi, leaving Uncle Niang tending to their child, with the help of Daming and Meimei.

Finally, we have 118's kitchen, where we see Shunshui brewing a coffee pot, Shunfeng toasting some bread, and Lin Zhigao (Cavin Soh) and Zhang Meiyou (Li Feihui) judging their skills. All of a sudden, a golden bird pops out of Shunshui's pot, capturing everyone's attention. Shunshui immediately chases after it, running out of the kitchen into the coffeeshop. Everybody is seen preparing a party, blowing balloons and having their own conversations, until all eyes were fixed up as Shunshui chases after the bird, followed by Shunfeng, Zhigao and Meiyou chasing him from behind, at his last attempt, Shunshui gives one last leap at the bird as it exits the coffeeshop.

To end off the intro, the whole cast is gathered under the "118" building, dancing to the tune, the golden bird soars over everyone, turning into a "II" sign beside the numbers "118", ending off the intro, "118 II".
