Night-shift taxi driver Ma Gwai lost his parents at a young age. After narrowly escaping death multiple times, he has seen through the vanity of the world and has adopted a "need no achievements, make no mistakes" attitude towards life. But inside his heart, there is one name - Chong Chi Yeuk. Every day, he drives this doctor to and from work, cherishing the time that belongs to only the two of them. Little does he know that he will become her guardian in the future. One night, he urinates on a public highway and releases the curse of the hundred-year old spirit Shek Gam Dong. He experiences a series of inconceivable events and sees things that other people cannot see. When Booi Booi Na, the online radio host of a supernatural show, learns of this, she continuously pesters him. He is initially annoyed by this, but eventually starts to conquer demons alongside Shek Gam Dong to make money. Unfortunately, his supernatural powers brings bad luck to the people around him. A horrifying car accident causes Chong Chi Yeuk's soul to leave her body. Ma Gwai, Shek Gam Dong and Booi Booi Dong work together to investigate and discover that the accident was actually a careful set-up by police officer Kwok Jin Ming...
Cast & Credits
The drama was super easy and light to watch. I decided to watch it while working on one of my art pieces, since I understand Cantonese and thus the drama did not require me to read subtitles.
It was ultimately about Ma Gwai and the discovery of his identity and role in the world. Shek Gamdong guided his way, and allowed him to see his importance and impact on other people's lives. Although it is a light-hearted drama to watch, there were scenes (especially the ones about how much his birth parents and adoptive mother loves him) that pulled on my heartstrings and had me in tears. I do wish that they had more action and interactions with the supernatural side of the story, but unfortunately it didn't and I felt that that made the story lack a little bit of spice. A lot of the more supernatural activities happened towards the end of the drama with the fighting and such, but don't get me wrong, it was funny and still managed to keep me interested in the story just fine.
Going off on a tangent, Kenneth Ma (plays Ma Gwai) has really gotten older. I wouldn't say this is one of his super-duper best dramas, so I would recommend checking out his other ones too! He is actually a very good actor and super funny. Also, Ram Chiang's hair in the drama...hahaha!!
Overall, I recommend watching it if you would like to binge on something light-hearted and funny.
At times funny, others a bit of mood whiplash as they hit you with angst, it always made me want to binge watch it in one go. I forced myself to a limit of only 2 eps a night, as I discovered it way after it had started.
I will be looking to see if they ever pick this up again.
