Set amongst the Republican era, the story tells of Jiang Yu who is a ruthless business man that sets out to seek revenge on his enemy, via punishing his daughter Wu Cai Hong, who is in love with her childhood sweetheart. The series is scripted and produced by famed c-author Tong Hua, as well as directed by the head director from Bu Bu Jing Xin.
If you're looking for something with a good plot, I'd say skip this one. The plot was really lame. It starts out as a revenge drama stemming from tragedy, but then quickly turns into a murdery/mystery. There's some romance/angst on the side as two guys fight over and manipulate the female lead. This was mainly worth watching for Hawick Lau, who's acting was amazing. Actually, this had a pretty great cast in general. It's just unfortunate it had a lame plot and poorly written characters. Most of the characters were inconsistent. They'd go back and forth (or were easily manipulated) and it was difficult to tell whose side they were on. The writer would spend multiple episodes over something really dumb and it was frustrating because you'd want the plot to move on already. Overall, I wouldn't suggest watching it unless you're extremely bored or watching for one of the main cast members.
This is a revenge drama that goes awry. Lots of plot twist which makes it interesting.. The main lead, Hawick Lau's acting is on point but the lead actress not so much. I've seen her in many other dramas but for some reason her acting seems to always be the same. That's the only disappointment in this drama. The supporting actor that acts as the lead actress' brother was really good at portraying the character. Just like many Chinese dramas, the story can get a bit draggy and frustrating at times but if you bear with it then you'll get to understand the characters better. Overall, definitely worth watching but I won't rewatch it.
