The emperor has maintained 2 powers during his reign in order to maintain balance and to secure his position. The first power was that of the head of the slaves, Tsaw Cheng Chun. The next was that of his uncle, Tie Tan Shen Hou. Tie Tan Shen Hou established a sect that protects the emperor at all costs, the Hu Long Shan Chuang! From the sect, Tie Tan has 3 powerful leaders: The Sky (Twan Tien Ya), The Earth (Yi Dao), and The Power (Hai Tang). He was yet looking for the fourth leader when suddenly, Cheng Shu Fei, a street-boy, passed by the palace and rescued the emperor's mother, gaining him fame and honor, and became the 4th leader: The Wealth! Little does Tie Tan know is that Cheng She Fei is the son of his enemy, Koo San Thong...
Meanwhile, the stories of the 4 powers were given much importance to, how each faced their past and found their life's meaning...
Tie Tan Shen Hou: Damien did a very good job with this role. Of all his past performances that I have seen, this is the best so far! He was able to portray a very powerful Shen Hou who earned everyone's respect, even mine! He was a veteran! I loved how he played the villain role so smoothly and suave wherein he ws able to plan everything without anyone being able to figure it out!
Twan Tien Ya: Li Ya Peng was ok. I enjoyed his performance of being the calm leader since it suits his appearance very well. He was a good brother, godchild, and husband. but sometimes, he was too good and kind that it became too easy to fool him. I find him gullible, especially when he still tried to rescue the evil princess who was drowning although he felt doubtful already. What I don't like about Li Ya Peng's performance is when he portrays an angry role. It just does not suit him to shout like that when he is mad! I would prefer it if he would just remain quiet and cried his emotions silently...
Kway Hai Yi Dao: Wallace never fails to make me applaud to his wonderful performances! Of all his performances, the only one I did not enjoy much is his performance in 100% Señorita because it seemed too plain and easy for him. This actor needs challenges because he CAN act! The expression he reveals in each scene were very effective! When he feels sad, I feel sad, when he feels happy, I feel happy, when he is in pain and mad, I feel sorry for him! He was a perfect choice for Yi Dao for he performed the weirdness of the character very well. He was also very sweet to Hai Tang even though he has such a strong personality! Now this is what I call a performance! His music is good too!
Cheng She Fei: Roger did a good Cheng She Fei. He was quite funny and he delivered the jokes effectively. But I think that he was a bit too old for this role since the other leaders of the Hu Long Shan Chuang were a generation younger...but it's ok though...He and Tammy made a cute couple at first and I was pretty interested with his character since he was the one who got the Golden Kung-Fu! But as the number of episodes passed, I find his lines redundant, especially his throwing of lines with Tammy...
Shang kwan Hai Tang: Michelle Ye was great here! At first, I did not like her much in her smart-ass role...but when she went to U Ren Koo, the village of the Evil, in order to find Cheng She Fei, she became more and more lovable that she became my favorite character in the whole series! She was so cute when she found out that Kent Tong likes her! I can feel her feeling of shock and confusion! Somehow, she became more herself! :) I also love her comic performance when she was to bathe the emperor! She was a very good performer! She does not only perform light emotions properly but even heavy ones as well. I also love her when she was abandoned by Tie Tan and when she was killed by Gao Yuen Yuen!
Ying Luo: Tammy was cute in here. I like her best here than her other damsel-in-distress roles in Lavander and Starry Starry Night! I found out that she can play a happy role. She was also prettier here than her roles before.
Liu Sheng Piao Xu: I find Gao Yuen Yuen prettier when she was wearing a Japanese costume than a Chinese one. She was good, but I hated her character because of killing Hai Tang. I am usually an admirer of villainous roles but because I love Hai Tang so much, I did not enjoy her character. She was such an evil person, but at least she really loved Tian Ya. Her performance was ok, nothing amazing for me, but not bad.
Liu Sheng Xue Qi: Eva is pretty and the modest and innocent role suits her well. I just feel sorry for her father because both daughters feel in love with Tien Ya, which is against his will.
Su Xin: Monica's character bored me! I can't seem to understand why two men fell madly for her...
Wan San Qian: Too old for Hai Tang!
The emperor: I hated his character at first because he was too useless and arrogant. but later on, he was ok...
Tsaw Cheng Chun: Although an unpleasant character, but a good performance!
Parts I Like:
> When Yi Dao accidentally found out that Hai Tang was a girl when she was taking a bath..
> When Hai Tang helped Yi Dao overcome his punishment when they were still kids.
> When Hai Tang was so scared that she had to bathe the emperor.
> Hai Tang's death...although it was so sad, she was so beautiful!
> Tie Tan Shen Hou and Tsaw Cheng Chun's showdown of kung-fu skills as well as Cheng She Fei and Tie Tan's.
> The beautifully developed ending, I love every bit of it!
What I don't Like:
> How Tie Tan Shen Hou falls madly in love with Monica that he got mad at Hai Tang and the doctors...
This is a one of a kind production! Almost everything about it was great! I am looking forward for more of these type of productions!
