Hong Kong Drama - In The Eye Of The Beholder

I have been watching this entertaining and funny 20 episodes Hong Kong TVB  period drama starring Myolie Wu and Moses Chan recently. The drama was shown in Hong Kong in March 2010 and i have been hoping to watch it as it stars my favourite artistes like Myolie Wu and Moses Chan. Moses Chan was funny and charming as Tong Bak Fu and shares great chemistry in the drama with Myolie Wu.

In search of the last model for his painting “Nine Pretty Women”, acclaimed scholar Tong Bak Fu (Moses Chan) goes on a trip to Hangzhou with his ardent disciple Wat Gei (Johnson Lee). While there, he meets a pretty young maid from Wah’s Residence, Chau Heung (Myolie Wu). Fu is mesmerized by Heung’s beauty and martial agility and falls in love with her right away. In order to approach the girl, he disguises as a servant and assumes the pseudonym Wah On, seeking to win her affections with his talent and ingenuity.

But contrary to his wishes, Heung is unmoved and even harbours an intense dislike for him after a series of misunderstandings. Master of the family Wah Hung Shan (Ha Yu) knew from the very beginning that Fu is not a common man. By the time his true identity is revealed, the scholar has already developed a close bond with the whole of the family, except Heung.

In the meantime, Ning Wong (Savio Tsang), who has been attempting to rebel against Emperor Ching Tak (Chris Lai), has managed to involve Fu in his conspiracy by stratagem, thus getting the man and the Wahs into big trouble. Ning’s daughter Chu Ting Yuk (Fala Chen) is in love with Fu. Desperate to save her dream man, she forces Ling to release Fu by threatening to kill herself. Yuk’s consuming passion for Fu seems to have caused a ripple of unease in Heung, who is starting to feel a little twinge of jealousy inside.....
