- This is a modern-style ancient series with a manga-like look. The series has fantasy and wuxia combined with comedy and tragedy. The story will revolve around the legend of Liang Zhu.

The romantic storyline will be rather tragic, but it will use comedic elements as a packaging, combined with tragedy, to bring a fresh feeling.

He was later saved by Evergreen Mak, and was taken to KK Cheung, who raised him. He is very intelligent. Everyone thinks that he is suitable to be a monk. Because of his chok looks, all the members of the opposite sex in the city are enchanted by him, including the beautiful gangster Priscilla Wong and Whitney Hui.

Personal Note: Was already not interested in this series after learning about the cast and the title, but the fact that it is a modern-style ancient series is even more off-putting. 囧!
Since Raymond is still filming "Record of the Fifth Day Opening", he should only be able to begin filming this series in mid-November, and he will be shaving his head then.
