The Most sensiblefive Hong Kong Dramas Of All Time From TVBautumn93 June 23, 2016 0 Back in the nice ol days, there used to be a pronouncing that once yousought afterto observe a drama with a 30 %center of attention on romance and a 70 percent on procedure, watch a Eastern drama. If you needed to watch a drama with a 70 percent specialise in romance and a 30 percent focal point on procedure, watch a Korean drama. BUT, if you wanted that perfect balance between a romance and procedure related drama, watch a TVB drama.
For many folks OG drama watchers (VHS condominiumshops anyone?), TVB dramas from Hong Kong were our first advent into the black hollow that is Asian dramas and the very starting of our drama addictions. They were reallygreatdisplays alongsideundeniable only wonderfully achieved plots and most refreshing of all, seriously sturdyfeminine characters. Sadly, Identity argue, the golden technology of Hong Kong tv has passed, but the memories of the ones wonderful dramas remain. Shall we walk down nostalgia lane and reminisce about 5 of the largest dramas produced by skill of TVB, among many from the 90s and early 2000s.
Burning Flame I is a fine series about the lives and loves of the firefighting heroes among us. The tale follows Lok Tin Yau (portrayed by Wong Hei) as he is going afterward his lifelong dream of converting into a firefighter after being stored by one as a child. With his mothers reluctant approval, he and his two bosom friends (portrayed by Chin Ka Lok and Joe Tay) sign up for the Pat Heung Academy and be told what it truly takes to jump into a literal burning abyss to save lives. Along the way, they revel insuperluck and once in an whole life friendships but also heartbreaking tragedy (*sobs*). It could be an oldie but its for sure a goodie.
And just to bring out the feels even more. Heres this. *cries in corner*
A procedural drama about the lives of pilots, Triumph in the Skies, or as I affectionately call it, TITS, used to be a pioneer of epic places shoots, with filming in Hong Kong, Australia, Italy, and Japan. If you didnt would like todevelop into a pilot after gazing this show, WHAT Turned into WRONG WITH YOU? To be fair, you may just have been too fixated at the new TVB heartthrobs in the types of Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, and Sammul Chan. Hubba hubba.
And whod fail to remember this memorable theme song?
A fun drama about a time commemorated trope. Set all the manner through the Yuan Dynasty, Mang Lai-kwan (played by Michelle Yip) is the daughter of a fitness care provider from the former court. She goes about her days cross-dressing as a boy to steer transparent ofthe limitations of being a lady in her time period. Of routehere's to her parents dismay but fortunately she has a doting older brother who is helping her break out with her shenanigans. When her dad makes a decision to marry her off (ugh) to the candy but dense Wongpo Siu-wah (played by Raymond Lam), Lai Kwan uses her alter-identity to run away. Along the way, she encounters infinite adventures or even has to save her father (sounds a little bit like Mulan, huh?) and in the end falls in love with the guy she vowed shed never love. Side-splittingly funny, this drama is also littered with all of the (then) up-and-comers and introduced the Raymond Lam-Michelle Yip send (is somebody else aboard this ship?).
For the Lai Kwan and Siu Wah shippers out there:
