Synopsis:

Heart of Greed is a 2007 TV drama. It was a highly successful show, winning a number of awards, including the 2007 TVB "Best Series" award. It was one of the highest rated shows, and it led to a spin off called "Moonlight Resonance." The storyline of Heart of Greed surrounds Tong Yan-Gai. He owns a dried sea-products store, and is married to Ling Hau, along with a second wife named Wong Sau-Kam. Gai has four children. Hau had cancer, and thinking that she wouldn't survive, encouraged Gai to find happiness with another woman. When Hau survives, it puts Kam in a difficult position, as she is not legally married to Gai and therefore has an uncertain status within the family. Due to her unhappiness, Kam seeks the family fortune and performs a number of acts that cause trouble for the family. Hau eventually expels Kam from the house, but the added stress from everything causes Hau's cancer to resurface. With this new twist, Kam continues to go after the family fortune through a number of under-handed plans, along with the help of Sheung Jok-Duk. The cast for Heart of Greed includes the following: Louise Lee as Ling Hau, Ha Yu as Tong Yan-Gai, and Susanna Kwan as Wong Sau-Kim.

Synopsis Review I'm not going to go through the motions of stating who acted in what role. Besides, "Heart of Greed" is much more popular than my previous review and SPCnet is better organised today than it was in the past. I've read other reviews which said that "Heart of Greed" was over-rated. I agree. In essence, it is no different from other typical TVB family/business dramas. Other comparable dramas include "The Greed of Man" (1992), "A Kindred Spirit" (1995), "Cold...

This is one of the most intense shows I've watched in a long time! The story revolves around a rich family, where the second mum always feels mistreated due to her status in the family, even though the family members do treat her as part of the family. So she started inciting trouble by causing tension towards the members of the family. When the first mum finally passed away, she thought she could finally become the actual wife of her husband....

Title: 溏心風暴 Episodes: 40 "Heart of Greed" is probably the best series that has been released in 2007. I remember the "Heart of Greed" cast doing a promotion for this series in Showbiz star news. They were watching the final episode with the Hong Kong audience in a shopping centre. I couldn't wait for the series to be broadcast in Europe but I knew I would have to wait a while. Surprisingly, the Chinese channel announced that it would...

i should say that this drama is very good overall..
but,at first few episodes,it is quite boring because there are no development in the story yet, ..then, the story started to become more and more interesting and tragic..
i have watched moonlight resonance also..so, i can say that the scenes in moonlight resonance is more tragic than those in heart of greed but..
in terms of development of characters, heart of greed is better ..
in terms of love story, the chemistry of raymond lam and linda chung is better in heart of greed eventhough they are often argue..
for the characters, ha yu acts very well in heart of greed,same also to moses chan, linda chung, bosco wong, susanna kwan and others..
but, in moonlight resonance, i can see that moses chan did not give a big impact in the drama..instead, raymond lam is better in moonlight resonance..
it is same cases with bosco wong, because he can play his role very well in heart of greed, but, surprisingly, his acting is disappointed in moonlight resonance because he just nobody in that drama..
for tavia yeung, i can see that her role is not big as in moonlight resonance, but she still acting well but the thing that i dislike her is her hairstyle in heart of greed.. it is an ugly hairstyle..
for michelle yim, i can say that she acts very well in both drama but more impact in moonlight resonance because of her role as evil ..

overall, i can say that heart of greed is one of the best family drama that i have ever seen..

HOG was really entertaining for me, minus the Rayda scenes. I am amazed that there are people out there who don't like the Rayda scenes like me.. It's like.. I seem to be the only one who thinks that Sheung Joi Sum and Alfred together equals incredibly boring & incredibly irritating. Irritating cuz they were fighting all the time. When Alfred wrote his dairy for SJS, I was just hoping that SJS will forgive him so that he would stop that cuz it's really boring. I mean, OK, we get it. He's repentant. Too much of something isn't very good.

But nevertheless, other than that, I loved the whole show. Why is Tavia given so little screentime though? I was expecting more.. I mean, she's part of the family and yet she gets lesser screentime than Raymond. That's kinda sad cuz Jackie was way more interesting than Alfred.
