    Golden Faith
    (Canto: Lau Gam Sui Yuet)

    Story Summary:

    An upcoming dealer in the gold industry, Ding Sin Boon goes to Australia on a business trip and meets Ching Tin Nam and the two people in a foreign country develop a romantic affair. After returning to Hong Kong, they are soon involved in a robbery in a jewellery store and Boon is accused of receiving stolen goods, moreover, he faces Nam as the prosecutor in the court case.

    When Boon was young, his parents had died and he had lost contact with his brother who was assumed to have been swept away into the sea. Boon is adopted by a mafia boss Ding Wing Bong and is brought up like his own son. Later, when Bong becomes rich, he buys Ding Fung Jewellers and becomes a dealer in gold, he lets Boon manage the business as he returns to his old ways of making fast cash through illegal means.

    It is because of Bong that Boon is innocently entangled into the case of receiving stolen goods and the police officer who arrests him and also testifies against him turns out to be no other than his long lost brother, Chung Sau Hong.

    Boon realises that Hong is his brother but because of the awkward situation, he does not reveal this for the sake of Hong's career. Hong sees that Boon has a complex background and feels that he is not a good person. As a prosecutor, Nam believes in the law and when Boon is judged to be innocent, she takes this as the truth.

    Boon and Nam want to continue their relationship, but Nam finds that Boon has a close female friend Kwai Lai Fu, with whom he has a complicated relationship. Nam doesn't realise that there is a reason for this in that the two are very close but the relationship is totally platonic.

    Hong secretly fancies Nam, and has no good feelings about Boon, until the time when Hong is suspected of stealing the evidence during one of his cases. Boon secretly helps him to recover the missing goods and prove Hong's innocence and Hong's impression of Boon begins to change.

    Soon later, Bong dies from illness and Boon takes over the family business to repay his debt to his stepfather, working hard to clean up the image and dealings of the business, sticking to his principles despite running the risk of incurring the wrath of the mafia, he boldly stands his ground. However, because of this involvement, Hong and Nam think that he is one of the illegal syndicate and Hong is forced into making clear his boundaries with Boon whilst Nam also painfully ends her romantic ties with him, following her head in choosing to accept the advances of Hong.

    Hong finally finds a witness to testify against Boon's family but he is soon murdered and Hong thinks that Boon is behind this, vowing to bring him to justice. However through a twist of fate, the death of his witness is indirectly related to Hong himself!

    Nam has logically quashed all her feelings towards Boon and sifts carefully through all the evidence to make sure she has not missed anything and in the process, she finds the truth that Boon and Hong are brothers. Nam finally realises the burden that Boon has to bear and decides that she needs to return Boon his innocence for the sake of justice, but it is really because she still has feelings for him.

    Hong suspects that Nam is secretly biased towards Boon and at the same time, he also finds out the truth about his relationship with Boon, but as he suspects Boon is responsible for the murder of the witness, he refuses to accept this reality.

    Boon and Hung Bak To are business associates, Fu and To have a business-like love affair and because Fu is so close to Boon, the two men's competition in the business arena soon changes to a personal battle. To plots deeply to have his revenge on the two and places a strain on Fu's mental state and as she breaks under the pressure, she murders To. In order to help Fu avoid prosecution, he openly admits his affair with Nam in order to bring down the reliability of her case against Fu. Nam is emotionally traumatised and as a result, Hong and Boon's relationship crumbles.

    Boon wishes for his family business to be completely cleaned up and wants to break into the international gold markets, creating an international standard for 9999 pure gold, as this is his dream. However, his step-brother Ding Sin Hang is tricked by his uncle Ding Wing Tung into thinking that Boon's real motive is to take the business over for himself. In order to protect his father's legacy, Hang moves to force Boon out. In order to avoid a clash between them, Boon chooses to pull out and hand over Ding Fung Gold Enterprises.

    At this point, Hong and Nam finally realise the reasons behind Boon's actions and understand what has happened, the two brothers patch up their difference and are reunited. Just as Boon and Nam's relationship is about to blossom, Hang is used by Tung and the finances of Ding Fung are sent into disarray. For the sake of his family fortune, Hang once again engages in criminal activity. In order to repay his stepfather's kindness, Boon will not let Hang go down the path of crime, and thus returns to the mafia world and rescues the situation, taking the blame for Hang's crimes. As a result, Hong is faced once again with the prospect of arresting his brother and Nam is faced with losing the one she loves the most.

    In the end, for the sake of Hang and for the sake of his past, Boon succumbs to the law and is sent down, but he regains the love of his real brother and the true love of Nam. With his self-sacrificing nature, he has realised the co-existance of love and honour, just as when gold is beaten and purified, it will show it's greatest brilliance.

Because has experienced life and death, he accepts any upsets that life throws at him and faces any difficulties head on. Boon is treated like a son by Bong who pays for his education and has a good relationship with his stepbrother Hang. After graduating from university, he helps Bong with his business and in the space of a few years has made a success out of Ding Fung Enterprises.

    Chung Sau Hong (Deric Wan)

    Personality: Early on, he is cool and detached, witty and mouthy and a little reckless. Open-minded and optimistic, he faces problems with a relaxed manner. Later on, he meets with setbacks and becomes more mature and calmer, and for the sake of his principles, demands much from himself, sometimes driving himself into a rut. In summary, he is faithful to justice, honourable, ambitious and determined young man.

    Background: Hong's parents died when he was young and he also lost his elder brother who he presumed had died. He was adopted by an aunt and uncle who treated him as their own son. Original name was Tin Chi, but to change his luck for the better, his uncle changed his name to Sau Hong. After graduating from university, he became a police officer and gained many merits, finally being sent to the CID serious crime squad. Hong's law enforcement techniques are clear cut and he does not agree with 'grey areas' until he is investigated himself for corruption and has his name cleared with Boon's help.

    Hong is constantly battling with Boon because of the cases and his love is for Nam only. Although he knows of the relationship between Nam and Boon, he holds the principle of fair competition and tries to woo her affections. At the same time, Nam's younger sister Ching Siu Yu has secret affections for Hong, but he does not know of this. After starting to date Nam, he realises that she still has feelings for Boon and is forced to end the relationship, and at the same time, he finds more conflict with Boon. After the split, he makes a relationship with Yu, but it is always unclear as he still thinks of Nam.

    Hong and Boon's battles between right and wrong are continued, and as Hong finds sufficient evidence to bring Boon to justice, he realises that Boon has been trying to clean his murky past. Hong thought that his definitions of good and bad were always so clear, but now he is hurting a good person and also the closest relative he has!

    Ching Tin Nam (Jessica Hsuan)

    Personality: Professional woman, sometimes a little impatient and short tempered, but keeps her beliefs of self belief. On the outside, she is strong and logical, with principles and ambitions; but in fact, she is very emotional and easily trapped by feelings which can affect her judgement. Because of the extremes in her character, there are battles between her emotions and her ambitions. She wants to find romance, but never forgets that she must face reality - a typical two-faced Eve.

    Background: Nam comes from a fortunate family and has met with little tragedy. After graduating in Law and completing her bar training, she has been a barrister for a few years and because she cannot bear to represent criminals, she has chosen to work for the criminal prosecution service, striving to exercise the law and justice.

    Nam has always found pride in her father and has been influenced by his optimistic nature. She feels that everything in the world has feelings and the worst eventualities will always have a happy ending. Just like in the stories, the bad will be punished and the good will be rewarded, the two are clear cut and you if you always look on the bright side then life will be a whole lot better.

    When Nam first became a prosecutor, she finds that she is always finding obstacles. Through her work, she meets detective Chung Sau Hong. Although Hong likes her, she feels he is too immature for her and her interests turn to Boon, however, he has a close friend Fu who causes the relationship to come and go.

    Later when Nam finds out that through his gold business, Boon is connected to many criminal dealings, she is intrigued by his complicated background and conflicts arise. Nam finds it painful to continue this intangible relationship and is moved by Hong's advances, so she chooses the clean and reliable Hong. She thinks she can forget about Boon, or even work professionally to bring him to justice, but during this time, she finds all his good points and she doesn't want to forsake Hong and yet she cannot hold back her feelings as she feels a strange jealousy towards Fu...

    Under a stroke of fate, Nam understands everything that Boon has been through is for the sake of honour and is moved into accepting him once more, but still has feelings for Hong. By dealing with her affairs with the two men, Nam learns to handle her emotions more maturely.

    Ding Sin Hang (Raymond Lam)

    Personality: Early on, he is happy-go-lucky and innocent with a love for the great outdoors and full of youthfulness. Later on, because he suspects that his father has been murdered, he is enveloped into a family feud and his thoughts become more complex and he is more suspicious of people. His love life is more stable, loving one person all the time.

    Background: Since he was young, Hang has had the love of his father Bong and the protection of his elder brother Boon, living in a world with no worries and thus becoming very innocent and fun-loving. With a strong interest in marine life, he is at one with nature. At the request of Bong, Hang has studied Business Administration abroad as Bong wishes the two brothers to work together and inherit the family business. However, Hang has no interest in business and thus argues with his father a lot, with Hang preferring to become a marine life trainer at Ocean Park. After Bong's death, Hang regrets not being able to say goodbye to his father, and has no qualms about his father passing the business to the control of Boon because he has always seen Boon as his big brother and he has no interest in running the company himself, preferring the company of dolphins.

    During this time, Hang finds that his assistant Chung Chui Yee likes him, but the woman he has always admired himself is the mysterious Kwai Lai Fu. On the other hand, he is perplexed by the actions of Boon in clearing the company name by moving the money out of the business and is tricked by his uncle Ding Wing Tung that this is because Boon wants to take the family fortune for himself. Used by his uncle, he decides to take control of his father's business by facing up to Boon and vowing to make the business work for himself, saying that he is the true heir and striving to force Boon out.

    Ching Siu Yu (Michelle Yip)

    Personality: Clear and defined with her actions and is intelligent. She acts with a third party view on life, externally showing her objectivity, but in reality trying to hide what is in her mind. She is discreet and inwardly proud, brushing off any problems she meets.

    With her own emotions, she has an alternative way of showing her individuality.

    Background: On the outside, she appears to be in a happy family, her sister Ching Tin Nam loves her a lot but she lives in a world of comparison. Since she was young, Yu has had a complex because in all aspects of her life, Nam has always outshone her. People will only remember her as Nam's little sister and forget that she is Yu. She is tired of this feeling and she strives to achieve something which is her own, she wants to follow a different path to that of Nam.

    Joining the police force is Yu's first step to individuality and in the hard work of training she never loses her determination and strength. In her work as a police officer, she meets with many setbacks, but with the support of her superior Chung Sau Hong, she matures. As a result, Yu falls in love with Hong, but he does not reciprocate her feelings and she can only keep this to herself, hoping that one day, he will realise how she feels. However, she cannot guess that on the road to love, she has still lost to her sister. Yu holds back the pain in her heart and continues to stick to her resolve, working hard to bring criminals to justice in the same way she holds onto the feelings she has towards Hong, even if they cannot flourish, she will hold onto them and not let go.

    Hung Pak To (Shek Sau)

    Personality: In front of other people, he hides his real self with a dashing exterior and a generous nature. Inside, he is power hungry and eager to win, greedy, vengeant and hurtful, to the point where he will continue until both sides fail. A rich background, he has superior self belief that he is a dragon amongst men, thus he is stubborn, expressive and violent. He believes that money can make anything happen and even love can be bought, but inside he shows an insatiable thirst for true love.

    Background: Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he is educated and has high status, and has single-handedly built up his precious stones business and gained recognition from the jewellers business. Until the appearance of Ding Fung he was unrivalled. He is a womaniser, with many affairs before and after his marriage, he has not hidden these and yet has not admitted them. His marriage to Pak Fong Wai is merely a transaction with a mutual respect. When Wai herself has an affair, he is outraged and treats her like dirt, torturing her both mentally and physically. He knows that Wai is a parasite, without him she cannot survive, so he doesn't divorce her despite the poor relationship and the two continue to show themselves as a loving couple.

    Ever since playing on the love circuit, To has never met his match, until the appearance of Kwai Lai Fu. Fu is a jewellery designer who works for him and when To finds that she is under financial stresses, he suggests a deal with her. When To wants to affect Boon's standing, he plots for Fu to frame him and as a result, he is at odds with Boon in both business and love affairs.

    When Fu leaves, To finds he is at a loss and finds no other women interesting any more, he then realises that in the arranged affair with Fu, he has genuinely fallen in love with her. He plans his moves stealthily in a bid to get her back...

    Kwai Lai Fu (Anne Heung)

    Personality: Good natured with a heart of gold. A complicated background has given her a reserved outlook but still treats people with trust and honesty and has a warm personality. She is grateful and has great self respect, even with a past that she cannot reveal, she still strives on strongly and works hard to achieve a new future.

    Background: Having worked hard in studying to become a designer, she works for To in Ming Shek Jewellers. She and her brother have but each other. Fu and To have an arrangement but she wishes that they can have a true relationship, however, To sees her as a piece of merchandise and does not give her any respect or care for her feelings, mentally and physically, Fu is held in the depth of pain.

    Later, To wants to affect Boon's business and he forces Fu to help him to frame him, but she refuses him because of her conscience and also because Boon has previously helped her and she feels a little gratitude and affection for him. Boon escapes the trouble, but Fu is subjected to a beating by To; as Fu faces desperation, Boon vows his hatred towards To and leaves a lasting impression with Fu. She moves over to work for Ding Fung and Boon to repay his kindness and gives her total dedication; professionally, Fu and Boon work together well and Fu loves him with all her heart, however he does not have the same feelings for her. When she sees that Boon and Nam become a pair, she buries her emotions deep inside.

    After Bong dies, Fu returns to Hong Kong to help Boon with the business and the two pass through many a hurdle... and at this time, Boon has split with Nam, but as Fu feels she can rekindle the flame with Boon, fate plays its games again. To cannot bear the shame of Fu leaving him and woos her affections, at the same time his hatred for Boon grows and he tries to wreak his vengeance on him and regain what he once had. Fu continually rejects To's advances and turns his disappointments into anger, and as he continually threatens her and mocks her, he forces her to the point where she loses control and does the unexpected...

    Episode 2 - Wing Bong's evidence is very bad for Boon


    Wing Bong is angry that Boon went to see Chai

    Boon and Nam meet outside the courtroom, but do not acknowledge each other, Nam is very disappointed with his criminal activity. Bong is annoyed that Boon went behind his back to go and see Chai, saying that the only reason why he started the gold business was so that his children wouldn't have to get involved with illegal activity, he is also worried that Boon will be sent to prison but the lawyer Chiu Man Jik has confidence that he will win the case. Nam finds out from her colleague Yik Chung Sum that Bong has had a criminal record and sighs that the son must follow the father's footsteps. Bong's old friend Law Gai Cheung calls him out, urging him to hurry and return the funds that Boon had borrowed from the business, Bong loses his temper and says that as long as his son is okay, nothing else matters at the moment. Nam goes to the police station to research the case, she hears that when Sau Hong was an undercover cop, the hardest thing to bear was the pretty working girls and then she sees him being yelled at and slapped by a girl called Ah Bing, put out by this, he doesn't take much notice of Nam and she isn't impressed by him. Boon's mother San Yu Bo requests a fortune stick for him but it signifies bad luck, Hang's sister Lin suggests that you can turn away bad luck with charity, but Bo has other plans. Bong is angry when he finds out that she has arranged a boat for Boon to escape in, Bo feels hard done by. Just before the trial, Boon meets Hong in the toilets, he is whistling and recognising the song, Boon is a little taken aback. In the court, Jik points out that Hong did not actually hear Chai and Boon's conversation and he merely guessed that Boon was there to receive the stolen goods, Hong is lost for words. When Nam suggests that for Boon to merely be returning the favour for his father is a little forced, Bong loses his cool and openly admits that Chai had previously taken a bullet for him and that he has a history of receiving stolen property, causing Jik and Boon's hearts to sink.


    With the court case looming, Boon still has the spirit to buy the groceries

    Episode 3 - Boon and Nam settle their differences


    Boon questions the values of charity in the eyes of the law

    Boon decides to give his own closing speech at the court case, suggesting that if it is a crime to offer money to help someone, then he doubts the worthiness of justice against charity and righteousness. When Boon and Nam meet again outside the court, she says to him that just because he has been judged not guilty, it doesn't mean that he hasn't committed a crime, Boon points out that she doesn't understand his position and invites her out the next day to a restaurant to try a "Pillow Bun". On her way home, Nam meets a female police officer chasing a thief, she helps to catch the criminal and scolds him, when the officer sees Nam, she is very angry and gives her a dirty look, this is because the police officer is Nam's little sister Siu Yu. When Nam returns home, she sees her father, Joi San, looking all around for a lost tortoise, she consoles her father saying that the tortoise has gone to the fourth dimension. The next morning, Boon painfully waits at the restaurant for Nam until the very last serving of "Pillow Bun" has been sold. At the press conference for the "Shining Jewellery Charity Auction", the boss of Ming Shek Jewellers Hung Pak To is intentionally late, he also hints that Ding Fung's goods are stolen property, for the sake of a quiet life, Boon decides to withdraw from the auction. When Nam reaches the restaurant, she doesn't see Boon, so she calls him and says that he didn't keep his promise to be there until he saw her, but she is made to feel better when she sees a portion of "Pillow Bun" take away reserved for her. Ding Fung's jewellery designer Kwai Lai Fu returns from abroad and Boon personally cooks her a meal to welcome her back. At the meal, Nin's grand daughter Tin Ka Yui mentions that Boon really cares for Fu, making Boon feel a little embarrassed. At the auction, To's line of sight often moves towards Fu and also bids for Fu's designs, making her feel uneasy. Bong gains much recognition from the auction, causing the anger of To. To laughs at Boon, saying that he is using his cast off's but Boon angrily warns him not to mock Fu. To then finds his wife, Pak Fong Wai hinting at his remaining feelings for Fu and slaps her.


    When Nam finds the take away "Pillow Bun" she is overjoyed

    Episode 4 - Hong tries to get closer to Nam


    Hong forces himself into Nam's car for a lift - how hard-faced!

    Bong goes to visit Chai in prison and has mixed feelings, he urges Gai Cheung not to do illegal dealings any more but Cheung refuses. Nam shows her obvious dislike towards Hong, but Hong is cheeky and forces her to give him a lift in her car. Nam takes Hong to the market, the reason for this is that he is investigating a case where a granny is beating her grandchildren and he wants to see for himself what the truth is. When he finds out that the case has been dismissed, he is very pleased. Hong knows that Nam likes to play golf, so he calls together his colleagues Yeung Kwong Leung and Kwan Siu Chau to practice where by chance, he meets Boon and creates some misunderstandings. After this, Boon passes the locker room to find Hong is being attacked by several big men, he moves in to help and is attacked himself. Chau suspects that it is Boon who has sent these people to beat Hong, but Boon laughs it off, saying that he didn't. Hong finds out that Nam knows Boon and questions her professionalism, angering her in the process. Hong returns home injured and his uncle Wai Kuk and auntie Yu Kwan Yuk are very concerned about him, Yuk wants to do acupuncture on him, but he is frightened to death! When Boon drives Nam to buy cake, he parks illegally and Yu gives him a parking ticket, Nam asks for a chance but Yu goes ahead showing no favouritism, Boon finds the two sisters' arguing quite amusing. Nam points out that her father is even more amusing because he is a science fiction writer, but doesn't know how to use electrical appliances and can communicate with the tortoise and plants. As the two chat, they almost knock over Nam's mother Yuen Hei Nga, who takes the opportunity to ask Boon to give her a lift, and in the process to find out more about Boon's background. After going home, she praises Boon greatly and Joi San laughs at her changeability. Bong is concerned about Boon and Nam's relationship, Bo asks him whether he is looking at this from a boss' point of view or that of a father, Bong is speechless. Boon takes Nam to a primary school in China to give out presents, seeing that he sponsors a number of orphans, Nam feels the gentler side of Boon.


    Yu does things by the book, showing no favours even for her sister, Nam is frustrated.

Boon wants to tell, but doesn't and Nam angrily leaves. Fu suddenly visits Nam, she tells that Boon is not willing to tell the truth because he is protecting her dignity, she tells of how she used to be beaten by To and how Boon has become enemies with To because of her. When Nam hears this, she is very upset and admits that it is not difficult to hide from others, but to bare one's scars in order for someone else to have what they want needs much courage and she respects Fu for this, Fu forces a smile. Nam calls out Boon, laughing that she has seen Fu and understands the situation, Boon breathes a sigh of relief.
