Synopsis

During a high-speed motorboat chase with a criminal, Cheung Chau police officer Wong Tai-mui gets herself trapped in a waterspout, accidentally opening a time portal. She travels back 200 years to 19th century Hong Kong, a time when the island was under Qing rule. She encounters a family of Canton pirates, led by Cheng Yat, his wife Shek Giu, and their adopted son Cheung Po Tsai. Using her knowledge of the future, which she keeps in a smartphone, she saves the pirates from a deadly naval battle against the Qing naval fleet led by Prince Man-ho, the eleventh son of the Jiaqing Emperor. Puzzled by her mysterious origins, Cheng Yat and Shek Giu remain wary of Tai-mui and are hesitant in trusting her.

At Beijing's Imperial Palace, Imperial Consort Yim and Imperial Consort Shun manipulate Man-ho to get themselves into a position of higher power. Jaded from politics and family feud, Man-ho decides to let go of his ambition for the crown and flees the palace.

On the day the tiangou covers the sun, another waterspout appears over the Canton sea. Cheung Po Tsai helps Tai-mui open the time portal so she can return to 21st century Hong Kong, but in doing so he also falls into the portal, travelling to the future with her.

Artiste Tony Hung (洪永城) and Natelie Tong's (唐詩詠) 'sister', Helen To (杜如風) attended an event together. When mentioned about Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) was unhappy about Tony had more scenes in Captain of Destiny (張保仔) series, Tony said: "We did not purposely add the scenes and made any adjustments. (Are you friends?) Okay and we laugh during the chatting. (He stands another side while taking group photo during another event?) He is filming Heroes of the Walled City (城寨英雄) series now. Perhaps he is too focused and keeps fighting whole day, and this makes him appear cool."

Mentioning about the report relating to him 'apple polishing' the senior management and the film producer visited him during the filming, Tony said: "We laugh while chatting and it is normal to show concern for colleagues. The film producer visits other filming team too." When asked about creating laughters at the scene and Ruco told him ' this was not a playground', Tony said: "I think I hear him say it before but he always says about treating to supper. (Affect the friendship?) Nope, we maintain contact. (He is more serious?) He is my senior and we need to be serious when working. I need to seek his guidance in acting skills."

Earlier, Raymond Wong (黃浩然) was the original male lead but he fell sick and I become the replacement. Thus, I treat it as a gift. (What about Natalie Tong?) He should think about it by himself. (Not afraid of saying Ruco in this way?) Nope and he needs to think it by himself." Grace said: "He is joking and please do not treat it seriously."

In Captain of Destiny (張保仔) series, TVB artiste Yeung Chiu Hoi (楊潮凱) acted as 13th price and Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) acted as 11th price and they had to film many scenes together. When mentioned Ruco was extremely cool, Chiu Hoi did not agree and reveal Ruco had his childish side: "We cooperate together before many years ago and have our own expectations. We will prepare ourselves first and happy to create new chemistry. Of course, I have to seek his guidance and he is a good brother. The public always say he is cool but is a fun person actually. Perhaps he wants to look cool in front of the camera but he has his childish and friendly side. He knows how to work hard and play hard."

Two days ago, Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Tony Hung (洪永城), Mandy Wong (黃智雯) and the others went to a high school to promote the series, Captain of Destiny (張保仔). When talked about earlier, Grace and her boyfriend, Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) were dating on the street and something sudden happened between Kevin and the reporter, Grace said: "I am there at that time. We have asked the reporter to give us some space but they refuse. Therefore, there is little conflict but nothing major. I think we should respect each other. (Will ask your boyfriend to cool down?) He has his own ways to manage. No problem and I hope they will not take photos next time and the opposite party will respect him." Grace added she was not frightened as she knew her boyfriend wanted to have privacy only.

Asking if she will be worried when rumours of sexy woman appeared beside Kevin in Mainland China, Grace laughed and said: "Not worried and I am curious about her identity. (Call your boyfriend to keep a distance?) No need as we trust each other."

Netizens hot topic: Looks and actings skills comparison between Ruco Chan and Tony Hung

 
news1.jpg

Earlier, Ms ex-Hong Kong, Grace Chan's (陳凱琳) acting was commented as exaggerating by the netizens and criticised as poor by veteran, Anthony Wong (黃秋生) in Captain of Destiny (張保仔) series. This becomes the highlight of the series as a result. However this time, the netizens opened post and placed the attention between Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Tony Hung (洪永城) such as looks and acting skills for comparison. Not too long ago, it was rumoured Tony joining TVB staggered Ruco's development and became his greatest competitor. Based on the voting results, many netizens strongly sided with Ruco who won by 320 votes eventually.

In terms of appearance, Ruco gains advantages such as tall and muscular body figure. Although both styles are different, but many audiences choose Ruco as their choice and said: "Please do not play! It is not that we dislike Tony and he is quite cute but how can he win Ruco!" Some netizens rebutted: "It is a drastic difference when Ruco wears spectacles!" As for Tony, he has his loyal fans supporting and praising for his good talking skills and smiling charm. Hence, everyone has his/her own perspective of the definition of dashing man.

In terms of acting skills, most audiences feel Ruco's acting skills is way better than newcomer, Tony. Some netizens remark that the Captain of Destiny series comes back to life due to Ruco: "Tony is satisfactory in terms of newcomer standard but some distance away when compared to Ruco. In some discussions, many comment Ruco saves the series and it is obvious he stands heavy weight in audiences' heart."
