I have watched this series a few times and I still like it! This version of Wisely is set in 1930s Shanghai, and consist of a few stories. I like the part where all the stories or characters seem intertwined with each other and then it all comes full circle and comes to an end on the last story which connects to the beginning scene. In this version, Wisely (Gallen Lo) is the rich heir to a successful pawnshop business, which...

*Some Spoilers* I must say, The W Files have been a true delight to watch.

Great sets and settings that...

I have been back in Thailand recently and had a chance to watch "The W File", especially the "Wood Coal" and the reincarnation with Roger Kwok as a guest actor. I like this series in general although sometimes I thought it is rather similar to "The X-Files". Gallen Lo is good in this series.

The 3d/special effects were really bad.. but what did I expect?

Otherwise, it was an okay series.. I'm not really into aliens, especially when Wisely ALWAYS explained it like: "It came from outer-space" Oo;;

the stories & plot of the drama is quite enjoyable. However, i don't think that Gallen resembles Wesley (most importantly his hair colour!).
