Golden Faith has quite an usual plot of a bad relative and a good person who saves the whole story. Although the basic plot ia a bit of a cliché, the details of the story are quite original and pretty interesting. Ding Shan Ben (Gallen Lo) might be such an altruist that it could be hard to find such a person on earth, but what's worth noting is that things on TV are just...

It's very boring & predictable series. Compared with other complicated modern drama like LBIA & BOGAE, sorry to say Golden Faith is far far behind. Don't impressed with this series, wasting my time to watch it :(

Golden Faith was a great movie to watch. But woow why Gallen had to do Jessica soo dirty like that! But at the end they still get to be together. Which is very sweet after everything they went.

I've watched an immense amount of TVB series, and Golden Faith must probably be the best all time. The script was complex but profound. The series was at quick pace; therefore, you won't be bored. 30 episodes will go by fast. Try not to miss any parts of the series, or else you wil be missing out. You might have to watch the movie a second time so that you'll fully understand the nunace and intracacies of the series. There's a lot to digest. Apart from the storyline, Jessica, gallen & Deric displayed wonderful & amazing acting skills. Jessica & Gallen engaged in a poignant love relationship, and they had great & unprecedented chemistry. Jessica & Gallen were a perfect match. I've never seen that chemistry before. In addition, there is a lot of drama in this series. Furthermore, the Jessica & Gallen Love relationship was like a roller coster. Fasten your seatbelt & watch this must-see series. DON'T MISS OUT! 5/5

Hmmm... don't know what it was about this series that just didn't satisfy. Dare I say the whole did not live up to its parts? So much potential: Gallen and Jessica - together; Deric Wan, Raymond, Michelle, Anne, Tavia... you just knew it was going to be a grand production with tears and heartaches galore, evil plotting, unexpected twists and turns... And it did deliver this, quite earnestly too, yet in the end it failed to leave any lasting impression. Deric was terribly mis-cast, his relationship with Jessica unconvincing, Michelle's character turned out to be superfluous, Myolie irritated, sub-plots were tired and predictable, and Gallen's character way too unrealistic. But saying that, wouldn't you just love to bring Ivan home to mother? And didn't Gallen look simply gorgeous in this series? Not as good as in "Secret of the Heart" where he was much younger, but the whole Ivan package, mmm...
I can't help comparing "Golden Faith" to "Cold Blood Warm Heart", one of my all time favourite series despite all its flaws. I've seen CBWH like 3 times, but I walked away from Golden Faith knowing I wouldn't watch it again. 3.5/5
