Synopsis

This story takes place in Hong Kong during the 1960s. KO TAI-HEI (Wayne Lai), an illegal immigrant who is kind-hearted by nature, gains recognition from his father’s good friend LOUIS KIM (Joe Junior), who helps him join the Police Force. By accident, he gets shot in the head, and the bullet fragments stimulate his brain cells, accelerating his brain evolution to the highest IQ level. With such a dramatic change, TAI-HEI becomes a brave and resourceful detective, consecutively solving mysterious cases. Meanwhile, he turns ruthless and is utterly unscrupulous in his dealings with others, saving his best friend and partner PAU PING-ON (Pierre Ngo), to whom he still shows some mercy. Realizing the situation could have been worse, his supervisor LOUIS assigns a female inspector called EVA KIM (Sire Ma) to spy on TAI-HEI. Unexpectedly, his adopted daughter EVA instead defends TAI-HEI in all respects, leading to fluctuations in her once progressive relationship with her fellow colleague CHOI FEI-LUNG (Edwin Siu). Later on, TAI-HEI encounters famous social butterfly SZETO NAM (Natalie Tong) who resembles his first love MUI MUI (Natalie Tong), entailing the intricacies of the relationship between them. PING-ON cannot bear to see TAI-HEI is led astray and gets into more trouble, so he schemes to save TAI-HEI. Instead, that gets TAI-HEI injured, rendering another tremendous transformation in his personality……

    Any comments on this? I’m interested as it’s by the same producer as Rosey Business, No Regrets, and Bottled Passion but the weird poster is throwing me off. & the cast is meh meh besides Wayne 🙁

    • KTVB says:

      I haven’t started watching it either, been a bit busy lately! Like you, I’m interested for the same reason, and having doubts because of the same reason..hahah

  • karen says:

    I watched a few eps… its so boring in the first few eps… Im hoping it will pick up soon or otherwise im going to drop it.

  • Mei says:

    Is anyone following this series? I have watch the first ten episodes and feeling confused. I don’t get the storyline, timeline or character motivation/development. I normally love Wayne’s series but this is really weird. I don’t know if I will carry on with it.

  • ac says:

    i will be giving this one a miss because of bad reviews.

    • JacJac says:

      Heard a lot of bad reviews this drama. I skipped it since the casts doesn’t interest me. I’m waiting for Change of Heart for Bosco, Michael Miu, Niki Chow, and Joey Meng. <3.

  • Sam says:

    Well i defnitely think it’s worth watching. There’ll be showing of wayne’s struggles in the latter half, and also pierre’s struggle, he gets polluted by Wayne in mid late… (im trying not to give much spoilers here)
    This drama is like how in a great way to care 2’s Tavia Yeung defecting because she wanted to be powerful….
    There’s a lot of flashbacks. It says how like wayne has double personalities… when he has a headache, he sounds nicer… but he eventually loses that cold ego and only remembers up to when he gets shot…. there’s more to happen… I’m a bit lazy too
    so i can just tell you, there’s a lot to do with pierre and wayne in here… If you concentrate on them more than everyone else…. apart from Mui Mui…. (Natalie) or the character’s popularity in the Fictional Hong Kong… The motivation is that the evil personality seems to even want to deprive of their dumping spouses…. (oops more spoilers)
    Also a bit of feeling produced slowly over the episodes that the Sky/God seems like a semi villian, even mocking the two buddies Tai Hei and ‘Good’ Ping On by messing with their IQ’s and dispositions towards dealing with social life.
    (oops even more spoiler!!! Eurrgghh I feel like these people can’t understand unless I translate the backdrop of what’s happening… -_-

    • Mei says:

      So okay the mixed timeline and split personality thing could be interesting but it’s being done in a really tedious way. I could even probably cope with the meandering and seeming pointless storyline, and lack of character development if it weren’t for the seriously bad acting by the 2 female leads – especially since Wayne was in a coma. Not expecting Oscar worthy performances but it has to at least not make me want to remove their hammy acting from my memory with a cheese grater. I think I am now ready to completely give up.
