Who, What, When & Where
This is a story,
perhaps a true story about Meng Lai Kuan (played by Michelle Yip). It is during the Mango period, the Yuan Dynasty. Michelle
is a very intelligence girl, who likes to dressing up like man in order to roam around freely. Michelle met Joe Man and Raymond
Lam and the three of them become the sworn brothers. This is a story about love, misunderstanding, false identities and
of course, a comedy.
has promoted Joe Ma as one of the leading characters. However Joe's character in this series really makes you to dislike him...
His character is intelligence, of course, he is the emperor, but he is so weak towards the love problem. It is no wrong for
him to falling love with Michelle, but Michelle did not love him and he still tries to win her back, he even force Raymond
to marry someone else! For that part, you will hate him
Ok, I personal do like Myolie, but
her character in this series is so pathetic, her role is so irritating due to the fact she is so loyal to her evil family. Her
brother treats her like nothing, but she still helps him again and again. May be because of her kindness (way too
kind), you are supposely to feel pity for her. But I trully did not, in fact I really don't like to see her, especially with
Raymond. The good thing is that she knows Raymond does not love him and she runs away so that Raymond can be
The true evil character in the story, I
really hate to see him around, because he is really irritating!
Yip's character Meng Lai Kuan, about 99.9% of the series, she was dressing
up like a man. Her character is strong, opinionative, sometimes rude, but she also has the female characteristic, such as
jealousy, emotional. Michelle really showed the male and female side of her character well. I use to dislike Michelle because
she did very poorly in "Reaching Out" and "Gods of Honor", thanks to Meng Lai Kuan's character,
Michelle finally got a good role and performed much better than before. Way to go!
Raymond Lam, his character
was so dumb, but funny and cute. I really like the fact that his character was so stupid. He can never tell Michelle is Meng Lai Kuan until the very end. I mean, he knew Michelle is a girl in the middle of the series,
but he still can not figure out she is the true Meng Lai Kuan, he thought she looks just
like Meng Lai Kuan, what a dumb person! Because of his stupidness, I really liked his character,
because he is really cute! Everytime he thought he betrayed Meng Lai Kuan by falling
love with Michelle, you just want to laugh and grabbing his neck and yelling at him, "why are you so dumb?" Anyways, his character
is really enjoyable, lots more better than his character in "A Step Into the Past". I can see lots of improvements come out
I love her, she is so funny! Her character
is really hilarious like it is always been
Michelle's brother is also a very nice character
because he is really funny. You will enjoy watching him with the bandit queen, those two are very cute!
Myolie Wu, I suppose? But, I did not feel
too much pity for her as I explained above.
How Come Factor
Thanks to the
script writers, I really do not have any doubts toward this storyline
Lam, I actually begin to like him now, not the fact he is tint just like Louis, but because of his performance.
Lau, I always liked her because she is very funny in all her serious.
I can not really
say I begin to like Michelle because of this serious, I just changed my opinion towards her. I think she will do better in
the future, we will see...
Michelle's Meng Lai Kuan due to the fact
she is so strong and smart. She always said, "the boat will get straight when it arrives to the edge". Very famous saying,
and everytime she says that, she has some ideas to get the difficulties straight out.
Raymond, I really love those two together. They fit really well, their love story is very touching and yet interesting. You
will probably get angry when they think they are not meant to be lovers.
scenes in this series:
1. When Michelle
realized Raymond is Wong Po Siu Wah, this part was so funny!
2. When Michelle
wants to show Joe Man she is a girl, but Joe Man did not showed up, instead Raymond showed up and saw Michelle's female look.
That's when Raymond finally realized Michelle is a girl.
3. When Michelle
realized Raymond is the one plays the flute all along. She actually was really shocked! Funny!
4. When Raymond
is injured while saving Michelle, Michelle was crying her heart out and yells to him she is Meng
Lai Kuan, but he did not hear it.
5. When Raymond finally realized Michelle is Meng Lai Kuan
6. Everytime you see Michelle and Rain together
7. Everytime you see Michelle and Raymond together
Myolie Wu's Lau Yin Yuk
Joe because they do not fit at all! Joe is way too old for Michelle
Joe and Michelle together
I really enjoyed
this series; it is very funny and entertaining. The storyline is excellent, the casts are really good. Seriously, it is hard
for me to give such a positive review for the TVB series, you can tell how much I enjoyed it, and I am sure you will, too.
IS IT WORTH WATCHING?
I will recommend
this one to all of you, no matter how much you do not like Michelle Yip, you will still enjoy this one. To all the Raymond
fans out there, this is a must see!
