Bearing the grief of losing his family, Chor Au-kuen returns to the Kowloon Walled City in hopes of finding his long lost sister, only to find that the very place he grew up in has become a lawless no man’s land. Concealing his real identity as a Bajiquan master, Au-kuen creates a new identity and gets acquainted with the feisty and sassy Tiu Lan, the lady boss of a hair salon; Duen Ying-fung, a dentist; and But Tak-liu, a water worker. Au-kuen also impresses the highly skilled martial artist Yuk Bo-fung, who owns a store across the street from Tiu Lan’s hair salon. To restore law and order in the walled city, Au-kuen unites everyone to form a welfare association to resist the triads. However, this decision causes a clash between him and Bo-fung’s son Lung Shing-fu, who is an underground Muay Thai fighter. Just as things are finally getting on course, a key figure in a powerful triad mysteriously dies under the hands of a Bajiquan master. Au-kuen and Tiu Lan investigate, and their investigation leads them to Fa Man, the leader of a stripping dance troupe. But one discovery leads to another, and Au-kuen finds himself uncovering the truth behind his father’s death. The burden behind his family’s mystery may have been lifted, but not all is well. Au-kuen still carries one more painful memory that he’s unable to let go—that the one he trusts the most is actually a member of a gang of ruthless assassins.

WATCH IF YOU'RE KEEN FOR ACTION, MYSTERY, ROMANCE AND COOL STUNTS

This was one of the best TVB dramas I had seen in the long time and I actually kept up with it as it came out. The storyline was excellent and I didn't get bored at any time during the whole drama. The on-screen pairings were on point and the action scenes were well executed. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a bit of Kung Fu.

Acting:
Nancy Wu: Man this was I think the first time I watched Nancy in a lead role? She was so amazing it was like she had a split personality while filming this portraying the fun and cheeky side of Diu Lan and also the dark and assassin side of Sun Mei. Her fighting scenes were also really cool and she was just so awesome.

Ruco Chan: Also the first time Ruco stood out for me as a major role. His fighting skills were so good and he portrayed his character really well. Even though he had to cry a lot, you could see the real emotion in his eyes and he makes you feel what the character is feeling. There is also a period of time where he goes blind so I think he did a good job there. I've never actually met a real blind person but I think he pulled it off.

Ben Yuen: The last time I watched him in a drama, he was obsessed with a ball called Jason. This was a complete contrast to that because he played a very serious and determined man who has awesome Kung Fu skills and who wants to protect the people he loves. Sometimes he wasn't as emotional as he could have been though.

Grace Wong: I think this drama shows a big improvement in her acting because she really stepped out and showed the deeper emotion behind her character. Not only could she fight in a dress, her face when she was planning manipulative schemes was so captivating and she totally deserved her win of the "Most popular female character" at the TVB awards

If I talked about the other characters I would be here forever. The other characters were awesome and I think they all did an outstanding job and I can't imagine anyone else playing the characters than this cast. All the fighting scenes looked as though all the actors actually knew their style of Kung Fu and I watched every second of it.

Nancy and Ruco were so good together like their chemistry was amazing. They also sang the soundtrack to all the romantic love scenes so that made their relationship even more special. Can't wait to see them act more together in the future!

Would I rewatch this? Definitely. I've seen it twice already and i'd glady watch it a couple more times. Some of the thrill from finding out the answers to the mysteries is gone though, but just watching for the action and romance scenes is worth it. :D

This is the BEST DRAMA of all tvb dramas. I personally love action and Kung fu dramas. I love the couples Nancy Wu and Ruco Chan. They won best couple award that year of the drama. Also Grace Wong and Benjamin Yuen because they won best support role that year. This drama won best drama in all two award ceremony, in Hong Kong and Malaysia. The most sad couple to me is Philip Ng and Moon Lau. I cried so much that I couldn't stop at all. The song sang by Nancy Wu and Ruco Chan won best song that year too. I really love that song so much. To tell truth I'm still planning to re watch this another time. So if you love romance and Kung fu drama you should watch this.
