Adam Cheng (鄭少秋) proves that he is a living legend.
The ViuTV drama Psycho Detective 2 <詭探前傳>, set in the 1980’s and a prequel to the 2017 supernatural drama Psycho Detective <詭探>, has entered its final week of broadcast. Starring Adam Cheng (鄭少秋), Michael Tao (陶大宇), Eric Kwok (郭偉亮), Elanne Kong (江若琳), Neo Yau (游學修), and Donovan Chan (陳郁憲), Psycho Detective 2 follows a team of ghostbusters who follow the lead of Taoist master Pang Bak-chuen (Adam Cheng). Originally a crime mystery centered on supernatural beings and events, Psycho Detective 2 turned into a personal drama about revenge.
In earlier episodes, the show’s final villain Au-yeung Hoi (Donovan Chan) kills Pang’s daughter Pan Sin (Elanne Kong) by ripping out her heart with his bare hands as part of the ingredient to become a spiritual immortal. Pang Sir is prepared to kill him for revenge, but as they are stuck in two different realms, Pang Sir cannot touch him. Hoi taunts him by holding up the heart of his daughter.
Hoi then transforms into Szema Chi-tsuen (Neo Yau), Pang Sir’s student and also Sin’s boyfriend, so he can get close to Pang Sir’s second daughter Pang Ching (Shirley Sham 沈殷怡). He kidnaps Ching and rapes her, filming the process. Feeling angry and helpless, Pang Sir watches the vide with tears. In those two minutes alone, Adam Cheng’s fantastic delivery of emotions justifies why he is the industry’s living legend.
The final episode premiered June 6, 2019.
