A classic fairy story infused with the latest CGI technology,
It depicts a fight among human, the immortals and the evil spirits!
Influenced by her mother, who has transformed into a magic herb, a cheerful young lady GWAI CHOI-CHI (Linda Chung) has become a demigod. As a child, SHEK KAM-DONG (Benny Chan) was constantly bullied. Wong Tai Sin (literal translation: Great Immortal Wong) pitied him and he has since become a man of unusual physical strength. AN HEI (Sunny Chan) is always sleepy because of a curse that has put on his family. Once, his body has accidentally been rested upon by the God of Sword (Stephen Au) and he has become the master of swordplay since.
The three of them are good friends. They are determined to wipe out the Grand Wizard (Halina Tam). With each of them having an extraordinary power, will they be able to make it and bring peace to human?

Comments: Yay! It’s finally here! It has been a long time since I first heard about the series but its release has been delayed again and again. I’m really excited to watch this series because it looks like it’ll be fun. I haven’t seen a costume/ancient/fantasy series in a long time (I like this type of genre) and it’s been awhile since a Benny Chan series too ^^ I think it’s a little strange TVB is cutting the series up into shorter episodes each, making it a total of 40 episodes. It’s sounding like a sitcom when I think of such small short episodes! Nevertheless, I will be anticipating its release!
