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 of — that the one he trusts the most is actually a member of a gang of ruthless assassins. Edit Translation

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.

This drama is one of the best TVB dramas I have watched and it is the one that got me into watching Hong Kong dramas. I really love the acting and felt that all the actors were cast well. Nancy totally deserved her "Best Actress Award"! It had a good mix of action, comedy, romance and emotional elements, in all, wonderful!

Production/Story:
The story is near perfect. It is engaging and the setting is great. However, one thing that I disliked was how the story resulted in Fa Man and Mao Zai dying. Personally, I am fine with characters dying if it adds value to the drama, for example, an exemplification of fate, the tragedies of life etc. In this drama, however, I felt that their deaths were rather unnecessary, and only the main couple ended up living "happily ever after".

Acting:
Being a fan of Nancy, this drama really showed me a different side to her acting. In her shows, I usually see her as someone who acts in rather serious roles, such as in "The Ultimate Addiction" and "Forensic Heroes 3". Thus, I was really surprised and entertained by her acting as Tiu Lan, her actions and emotions were rather exaggerated in a good way that made the show fun to watch, and I must say her acting bought me the most laughter, especially in the first part of the show when the mood was lighter. I was also impressed with the casting of Moon as Audrey and Philip as Mao Zai. Both of them really suited their roles and I feel that the usual impression they show rather suits their characters. Other than that, all the actors, including the three bad guys, Mao Zai's mother also acted really well and I feel that their costume and make-up enhanced their characters. When I was rewatching, however, I found that I did not enjoy Kuen Lo's character as much (I enjoyed Ruco's acting though), he felt overly naive and insistent on things, but I suppose it is to show his great sense of loyalty.

Music:
The opening theme song was meh and I skipped it throughout the whole drama. The ending song, on the other hand, was great and I listened to it on a continuous loop. In my opinion, it is a song which has great meaning and would be a nice song to listen, even for those who are not intending to watch the show (从未知道你最好). And did I mention, it is sung by Ruco and Nancy, please go and listen!

Rewatch Value:
To be honest, I wouldn't rewatch this show even though I really loved it. I tried rewatching a couple of episodes while looking for a new drama to watch. However, I felt that watching this again made the show a bit dry and I found myself skipping large parts. Hence, I would say that watching this drama once is the best way to enjoy it.
