Hottest topic among netizens: What is your comments about Master of Destiny series?

The new series, Master of Destiny (風雲天地) was broadcasted at 8.30pm after the finale of Wudang Rules (潮拜武當) series. Master of Destiny series was a collaboration between TVB and Mainland China company and the cast members included Liza Wang (汪明荃), Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Hawick Lau (劉愷威), Kenny Wong (黃德斌), Angie Chiu (趙雅芝), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) and other Hong Kong and Mainland artistes. For example: Tiffany Tang who was the bridesmaid during Hawick Lau's and his wife, Yang Mi's (楊冪) wedding ceremony and other female cast members such as Kimmy Tong (童菲), Natalie Meng (孟瑤) and others. The plot involved rise and fall of family business and love and hate relationship.

However, many netizens were unaccustomed to the cast members of the series as it was airing at 8.30pm and they also analysed the glamorous faces of the artistes. First, the netizens praised 68 years old Liza Wang had beautiful and smooth skin and her make-up was not bad. She had little wrinkles when frowning and looked like Liza had taken some preservatives though. Next, Hawick Lau is Hong Kong artiste and went to develop his career in Mainland China long ago. He married Mainland China artiste, Yang Mi and had a baby daughter together. It broadcasted 5 series starring Hawick in different television stations last month. After filming Mainland series, Hawick returned to Hong Kong and his dashing looks became the hottest topic instantly. Compared to the old series, A Kindred Spirit (真情) and as the son of 'Lee Biu Bing 叉燒炳', Hawick's looks grew up differently and transformed into a mature man with dashing appearance.

When mentioned about the representatives from Mainland China, many netizens found it hard to differentiate between Kimmy Tong and Tiffany Tang (唐嫣) who acted as Hawick Lau's younger sister and girlfriend. Both had big eyes, small noses and mouths and sharp chins. Hence, the netizens did some research on their old photos and commented: "Hawick Lau's girlfriends had extremely sharp chins!" Though it was normal to become beautiful when growing up and the make-up technology was getting advanced, but many netizens felt that the plot of Master of Destiny was too ordinary and did not know how to appreciate: "As an ordinary human being, we do not really know how to appreciate and watching old series, The Justice of Life' on the Internet is better."

Liza Wang praises Selena Li three times in Master of Destiny

 
selena_li_liza_wang.jpg

Selena Li (李施嬅) plays the younger version of Liza Wang's (汪明荃) character in the currently airing TVB series Master of Destiny (風雲天地). She plays a heavy role as she lives through a rough life, experiences the pain of losing her husband, experiences almost being raped and reaches the stage of facing poverty. Describing her character's life story as the condensed version of The Greed of Man, Selena said: "I practically had to cry for 16 hours each day, cry until my eyes were swollen. Each morning, I had to use ice cold tea bags to reduce the swelling. When we were filming, the temperature was close to forty degrees celsius, causing us to use up lots of energy."
 
Although the filming schedule was tight and extremely stressful, it was worth it since her acting was greatly praised by Liza Wang. Selena said: "What I'm most happy about is that Liza praised me three times, saying that I was able to bring out the 'flavors' of the role. At that time, I was really emotional that I wanted to cry, all the hard work was worth it. Liza's praise was a huge surprise so I felt really happy as if I've won the lottery." Selena hopes that in the future she will be able to collaborate with Liza again having scenes together and she said: "After being praised by her, I actually feel more stressful. If we are going to collaborate, I would have to stay alert and be ready."

I really tried to watch this drama because of the strong cast but even excellent acting can't save this drama for me. The storyline is weak and predictable. Also the cinematography and lighting is really bad. Too much over dramatic in this drama which makes it look stupid.

I was looking forward to this because I haven't seen Hawick in a cantonese show since I was like 7 years old, in 創世紀 with Gallen Lo. Except this is basically 創世紀 with Hawick as Gallen Lo's character. In other words, this plot has been recycled and tweaked by TVB in the last 15 years way way way too many times for 'TVB grand productions'(流金歲月,酒店風雲,賭場風雲,歲月風雲,溏心風暴,家好月圓,珠光寶氣,富貴們 etc.) with quality decreasing as the list goes on.

Master of Destiny series: Hawick Lau fought with more than 10 people and the netizens remarked it was exaggerating

 
news6.jpg
 
news8.jpg

It is a familiar scene when Donnie Yen (甄子丹) acted as Ip Man to fight with 10 people but it turns out he is not the only strongest fighter but Hawick Lau (劉愷威) is one of them as well.

Currently, TVB is broadcasting Master of Destiny (風雲天地) at 8.30pm on weekday. There was a scene of Hawick acted as Cho Chi Yuen (曹志遠) was convicted to jail and fight with cell mates which lasted around 30 seconds. Apparently, he trained himself to have a strong and fit body within a short period of time and Hawick was able to fight with more than 10 cell mates and kicked one of them up in the air. He also used kickboxing which frightened the cell leader who wanted to use a sharp weapon to attack Hawick. But Hawick avoided the weapon easily and defeated him in a chok style.

Although the scene lasted for 30 seconds only, many netizens commented it was very exaggerating and Hawick's face remained the same despite fighting with more than 10 people. Other than being called as the 'cell king', he helped the scene to add it effect which was considered creative. Some netizens even made fun that it was the jail version of Ip Man 3 and Hawick should escape the jail since he is a good fighter.
