This is the fictional historical drama about the "account life" of Miu Chui Fa, the mother of legendary martial artist Fong Sai-Yuk. Miu Chui Fa always loved to have fun with little self restraint and consideration with her righteousness. It was because her righteous actions she injured an imperial officer's son and was about to face his fury when Fong Tuk (an influential family liked by the emperor) used his status to "marry" Miu Chui Fa to deter them. It's the comedic story of the developing relationship between Fong Dak and Miu Chui Fa dealing with relationships, family, activism, and each other amongst legendary martial artists and political turmoil of their time.
Cast & Credits
It's in a historical setting, about this countryside girl, Miu Chui Fa, who comes to the city with her rowdy but down to earth attitude and gets into trouble right off the bat. She gets into more and more trouble and end up having to fake marry one of the wealthiest men in town, Fong Dak, and more drama occurs because she doesn't like the marriage idea and is less than cooperating since she also dislikes Fong Dak. I don't want to spoil to much.
Overall, it is a fun story, and I do believe that the cast did help it along. Near the ending though, there wasn't really much to support the events that were happening. I would have preferred a more in-depth descriptor on the situation that was going on. It could have been developed better. Go in deeper about motivations and intentions...it could have had more to make you get the feels, but sadly, it was too short and the script didn't really do well near the ending in my opinion. And, maybe a better ending with a bit more details to round things out more would have been better. This is definitely one of those shows with an ending that came too quick and there wasn't enough fluff to make you like the 'the end' part. And, if you are looking for a romance, there really isn't much of it at all. I would say that there are probably 3 episodes that show any act of romance between the main characters and that's it, plus it's way far, near the end for any of this to occur. The entire show really revolves around Miu Chui Fa and her getting into a bunch of trouble.
The cast was great. Kwan Esther is one of my favorite actors from way back when so I might be a little biased. Their over the top acting really is the highlight of the show. It really isn't very funny but the little smart aleck jokes and pranks here and there are great. The story line is really typical for one of TVB's classic dramas from the early 00's era. A light-hearted drama. Not the really heavy drama with complex love-hate relationship stuff that are popular nowadays. It doesn't speak in very elaborate historical ways. Easy to understand Cantonese was used.
I would recommend it. I wouldn't say it's great but it's a nice show to pass the time, light-hearted and fun.
