TVB has finally released a full synopsis for its upcoming television drama, Storm in a Cocoon <守業者>, produced by Leung Choi Yuen (梁材遠). The period mystery drama, previously known by its literal title “Property Protector”, is scheduled to premiere on TVB’s affiliated channels onFebruary 17, 2014 in Hong Kong.

Starring Steven Ma (馬浚偉) in his first TVB role since terminating his TVB management contract in early 2012. Storm in the Cocoon – produced at 32 episodes – also stars Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Maggie Shiu (邵美琪), Evergreen Mak (麥長青), and Raymond Cho (曹永廉).

Synopsis

Mak Tai Lung, a Guangzhou-based silk-making business empire during the Republican era of China, is experiencing some changes. The family business was once overlooked by the wise Poon Wing Nin (Elliot Ngok 岳華), but due to his advanced age, he decides to hand down the business to his eldest son Poon Ka Hin (Evergreen Mak) and daughter Poon Hau Yee (Akina Hong 康華).

Hau Yee mysteriously commits suicide one night, and Poon’s second son Poon Ka Yeung (Steven Ma), who serves as a military doctor, is called back home to help overlook the business. Ka Yeung finds Hau Yee’s death suspicious, and Hau Yee’s good friend Tong Bing Bing (Tavia Yeung), a worker at the silk factory, also has her doubts. Together, Ka Yeung and Bing Bing launch an investigation on Hau Yee’s death. The Poon family and their business are not like what they appear to be, and the complex histories and relationship between the Poon family and the silk factory workers leave Ka Yeung feeling like he is being watched everywhere.

Factory forewoman Sin Bik Wan (Maggie Shiu), who practices celibacy, sees Bing Bing as her enemy. Factory worker Fung Chi Ching (Natalie Tong 唐詩詠) proclaims to be celibate, but it is discovered that she had other goals in mind.

Ka Yeung and Bing Bing fall in love, but their relationship takes a dramatic turn when Bing Bing’s fiancé Kwan Cho Yiu (Raymond Cho) suddenly reappears in her life, creating further trouble for the silk business. Hau Yee’s death also faces an unexpected revelation.

      I should think that Tavia’s character will end up as the killer seeking revenge for wrongs done to her family by Steven’s family in the past or something like that.

    The poster is very well done!!!

    Looking forward to stevia again!!! Also sounds very interesting, always have been a fan of country side series.

    Anticipating the scenery cuz they filmed in the mainland countryside too.

    One of my most anticipated series! Love family mystery murders :)

    Don’t know why Akina Hong returns to TVB. TVB always gives her small roles.
    At least, she plays supporting roles in mainland dramas.

        I think Akina is excellent too. Wish she would get more prominent roles. Can someone tell me was she also the one who played the adult female friend of Lawrence Ng in Hippocratic Crush 2 (think she was a doctor also?)

        Yep, she played that character, I think June Chan played 蘇潔 while Akina played 丘晴樂.

      Perhaps competition has been tough in recent years in Mainland. Sometimes artists return for exposure again.

    The main reason I’m looking forward to this series is the pairing of Steven and Tavia. My whole opinion of this series will be based on if they have a happy ending or not. lol

      So soon — that should be Evergreen Mak; he’s been in every series since way back when. Even he himself commented on weibo on his numerous series aired or still airing or will be aired soon. He is one prolific actor.

      Poor Steven for what? Steven should be thankful his series isn’t aired during this new year celebration holiday. It is Ruco and Joyce Tang who is the poor one except Joyce-Angela series is tailor made for the festives mood, and to a certain extent Michelle Yim and Roger Kwok who got the graveyard chhristmas and new year time.

    Steven specially requested for Tavia to collaborate with him in this drama which is his comeback debut to tvb. He has great understanding and praised Tavia when they both acted in Sweetness In The Salt. Sure am looking forward to Stevia again. Sounds like a good plot. Trust Steven & Tavia to deliver good performance. Yay cant wait :)

      Agree- Akina and Maggie are sooo underrated!!! Their acting always comes off as solid, great performances, and delivers their character well. Sadly tbb seems to always fail at giving the larger roles to such potential artists’…

      • ping0 replied:

        Totally with you!! Have you seen Akina in Liao Zhai tales? She was the lead and she was so pretty there! She did some mainland series, even paired up with Korean actor, she was pretty good, but the series was not lol. I been selective with TVB series, this one is a must watch for sure!!

    While the story is interesting, Steven and Tavia are somewhat stale. Steven is a one note actor and projecting a scholar image in all his tvb dramas, while Tavia has tendency to overact most of the times.

    I love the poster. I’m definitely looking forward to the series.

    The link below has 4 of my favorite SIAC pictures posted online so far.

    http://stevenma-fanblog.blogspot.com/2014/01/favorite-siac-photos.html

    Parting is such ‘bitter’ sorrow! Such tenderness! In Land of Wealth, Stevia have perfected the art of communicating intense emotions between themselves without words — through facial expressions, posturing, and tender touches. I hope Stevia have lots and lots of poignant moments and scenes that will stir and wring the audiences’ hearts.

    Incidentally, when Bobby rejected the series, the modern story premise was scraped too so Steven suggested filming an Early Republican Era series instead because he loves that period but had never filmed a tvb series in that period.
