Student CHOW GUK (Priscilla Wong) is WAI's student and friend, she's naturally talented, but doesn't really study thus she frequently misuses the four character proverbs. As a righteous man, WAI saw how absurd society was and deeply felt education wouldn't change people's hearts. Coincidentally he meets CHAN JAN JAN (Kristal Tin) of unknown background, but is a talented writer who is competitive and talkative. The two became the male and female lawyers that everyone knew. The notorious POON GANG CHYUN (KK Cheung) and his son POON YI MING (Jerry Lamb) regarded WAI and JAN as enemies. WAI's good friend HA HAU MO (Evergreen Mak) felt disappointed that WAI changed because MO's father CHAN MUNG KUT (Lee Sing Cheung) was a famous lawyer, but was framed and sentenced to death, MO held a deep grudge on lawyers. Although MO understood WAI's intention, he was suspicious of JAN's background and started investigating her. His investigation unfolded a hidden injustice case from 20 years ago...(aZnangel)

lol. i finally got the time of the day to watch all 4 episodes. so far so good! Prior to watching this today, when they were still promoting the show prior to Hippocratic crush 2, I wasn't really happy with the casting (like Kristal Tin). However, I take my words back as i actually like Kristal Tin in this show, it actually suited her character. But what I really like is the humour and such. Very very funny... slapstick funny.

TV Queen Kristal Tin, Roger Kwok, Priscilla Wong, Evergreen Mak, Fred Cheng, and Whitney Hui attended the promotional event for TVB series Return of the Silver Tongue held in Sham Shui Po. Recently Priscilla and Edwin Siu were rumored while filming their new series Housewife Madam, but Priscilla laughed and said she thanked the magazine for giving her a headline: "I only get 3 hours of sleep a day, how will I have the energy to make rumors? Its better to treat the rumors as promotions. It was only the word cunning ("hau") that bothered me because I don't really have the elements of a woman. (Are you afraid it might be awkward when you see Edwin's actual girlfriend Gigi Ho?) No, I don't gossip about other people." Priscilla expressed once she's finish with filming the series, she'll be leaving HK for several months and by then its all forgotten. Asked whether she's going back to Tony Hung's side? She joked: "Yes, having rumors with him is the safest. At most I won't dislike him." 

When Kristal heard of Priscilla and Edwin's rumor, she was surprised and accidentally blurted out Edwin is already in a relationship, but then she quickly added: "Well I always see he's so sweet, so I thought he was in a relationship. Priscilla doesn't have a body figure, she's so flat and nothing wonderful, Edwin won't like her. Priscilla needs a man who really knows what's good." Edwin accepted a telephone interview and expressed the rumor is just for laughs.

Roger disclosed he can have a 'fat' year and will travel around Southeast Asia as a family of four for the first time. "I have never done this before, so its frightening. My daughter really likes the food on the airplane. Last time she had so much of it, she vomited, so we will have to try stop her from over eating." 

Earlier Whitney Hui got into trouble in the cinemas while she was trying to take pictures of herself in the movie. She stressed she really didn't know, even her parents called and scolded her. She said: "My parents strictly follow rules. They asked me why I was so careless. I was just too happy to see myself in the movie and wanted to take a picture for memories. I will never break the rule again."

Posted Image

Both "Return of the Silver Tongue" and "Coffee Cat Mama" may have been suffering from mediocre ratings since its broadcasts back in December, but the former finally triumphed when its final episode was successful in accumulating more rating points.

As reported on HKTV, while both comedy series aired their finale episodes on 17 January and received an average 27 points, it was revealed that "Return of the Silver Tongue" managed to get 31 points at its peak, with around 1.99 million viewers tuning in.

The rating point was slightly higher than the Bosco Wong-starrer, which only managed to get 28 points at its peak.

The two dramas have been suffering from slow ratings due to technicalities instead of quality issues. As both were broadcasted in December, which is the holiday month, most of TVB viewers are out travelling instead of staying at home watching television.

However, despite its success in beating out "Coffee Cat Mama" in its final rating points, "Return of the Silver Tongue" still received five complaints from viewers – mainly due to its poor casting choices and unrealistic theme.
