During the Southern Sung Dynasty, Prince CHIU KWAI-SHING (Pierre Ngo) and Prince CHIU KWAI-WO (Chris Lai) are rival brothers and they both covet the throne of the kingdom. As their strategic advisors, Chancellor YU CHING (Wayne Lai) and Chancellor TUNG CHIU (Kent Cheng) are long-time family friends as well as peer mentors. Unexpectedly, YU CHING’s father YU POK-MAN (Cheung Kwok Keung) courts disaster by making an indiscreet remark. Following the confiscation of their property, the family falls apart. YU CHING loses contact with both his younger brother YU TSING (Patrick Tang) and younger sister YU JING (Natalie Tong). Being deceived, YU TSING has become a eunuch suffering humiliation. YU JING, who experiences amnesia, has been adopted by YIM SAM-LEUNG (Kristal Tin), a daughter of a gang leader. Misconstruing that TUNG CHIU has betrayed his father for pursuing private ends, YU CHING joins force with the treacherous minister YEUNG CHI-SHAN (Lee Kwok Lun) against him. As the rivalry intensifies, both open strife and veiled struggle comes to light. A battle between King Makers sparks off a chain of startling events imbued with aggression, deceitfulness and malevolence.

    I remember hearing about this series sometime last year and is looking forward to seeing it! the series looks promising. The main appeal is the time period, and of course, Wayne Lai! =) I have complete faith his acting. While I have never really been a fan of Kent, I’m expecting there to be lots of good scenes between the two

  • Cammie says:

    I love this time period too! Sounds like a great storyline and great cast overall. Can not wait!

  • Magic says:

    This series is great so far! It’s really interesting and the acting is great.

  • Madeline says:

    Just finished watching the first 8 episodes and I can’t even take my eyes off of every scene in this drama. It’s really that good..

  • JacJac says:

    I heard from many fans that this drama is a must watch and really good. Even their praises couldn’t get me into starting this drama. -_-.

  • Jcacp says:

    such a good show! with the worst last 5 episodes. super intense and super depressing, didn’t even know whether to be mad or sad at the ending!

  • Ongki says:

    Anyone have the theme song?

  • Pinky says:

    After watching this, i became an addict and then….I remembered that they were once a pair in the Comeback Clan. But Pierre was the villian and Sammul and Natalie were the main pairings.
    I went to rewatch it and OMG….IM OBSESSED!

    • KTVB says:

      hahah =) That’s good to here lol I think they are a refreshing couple although they didn’t capure much of my attention. Fallen in love with Krystal and Wayne though! XD It’s great to see Wayne pairing up so well with another actress other than Sheren Tang!

  • KTVB says:

    A series with lots of potential 🙂

    Strong performance from Wayne, Kent and Kristal.
    Loved Wayne and Kristal’s pairing in the series! She’s so cool- constantly thinking she could replace Sheren Tang in Rosy Business, or it could have been played by Sheren. Great chemistry between these two characters- they are so compatible with each other!

    A highlight was seeing Wayne, Natalie and Patrick reunite!

    Patrick’s role is also quite likeable
