I have started watching this 2007 Hong Kong ancient comedy cum romance drama (20episodes) that started showing recently on Starhub Channel 55, Monday to Friday, 8pm. The plot is both interesting and funny and i enjoyed watching the 3 main leads, Jordan Chan, Charmaine Sheh and Michael Tse's characters battling out in court.
More about the drama:
The most difficult thing for an articulate legal expert is not to win a lawsuit but to bargain for a twist of fate. Plagued by a mysterious family curse, Chan Mung Kat (Jordan Chan), who comes from a legal family, is forced by his mother to fool around and devotes all his time to running a brothel despite his great talent. As a result of a careless mistake, he is embroiled in a legal dispute, through which he gets to know the eloquent and magistrate's daughter Nala Ching Ching (Charmaine Sheh) and litigator Fong Tong Kan (Michael Tse). Fong Tong Kan is a famous litigator who travels around the country taking on court cases to expose the corrupted and lazy court officials as he was framed by the emperor's favourite official Wo Shen in the past.
Ching’s articulation has not only won her a legal gown bestowed by the Qianlong Emperor but also an arranged marriage (But this was not the emperor's will. It was part of Wo Shen's evil plan to ruin Fong Tong Kan. Wo Shen had told the emperor that he would arrange a marriage for Nala Ching Ching and Fong Tong Kan, but instead chose the most disgusting man in the city, Chan Mung Kat.) Despite her love for Kan, Ching cannot decline the Emperor’s offer and finally agrees to marry Kat. The lovelorn Kan lingers at the brothel day and night, leading himself to get caught up in a murder. Ching tries to save Kan but in vain.
Luckily Kat offers to help and manages to pull Kan out of the trouble. Ching has got a different impression of Kat and the incident has once again reminded Kat of the curse and the potential danger of getting involved in any kinds of lawsuits. Kat gets framed later on and Ching is left to deal with the case all on her own. To everyone’s surprise, the curse has now been shifted on to Kat… Do watch the drama if you subscribe to cable tv :>
