Synopsis of TVB’s “Wudang Rules”

Premiering on May 25, TVB’s new kung fu series Wudang Rules <潮拜武當> sees the return of martial artist and actor Chin Siu Ho (錢小豪), who is best known for his starring roles in blockbusters Mr. Vampire <僵屍先生>, Tai Chi Master <太極張三豐>, and Fist of Legend <精武英雄>. The 20-episode inspirational drama, produced by Nelson Cheung (張乾文) uses martial arts and kung fu to tell a story of recovery, courage, and hope.

Located in the Hubei Province of China, the Wudang Mountains are renowned as the cultural center of Taoism. Famous for being the mythological birthplace of tai chi, many modern-day civilians who want to find respite from the bustling city life go to the mountains to find spiritual enlightenment and awakening.

Former undercover police Pau Kai Chung (Chin Siu Ho) escapes to the Wudang Mountains after experiencing a severe setback in life. His sije (female senior) Mo Yee Shan (Yuen Qiu 元秋), whom he has known since his youth, hires him as a chef for her lodging establishment in Wudang. She also takes in the mysterious and mentally ill Ho Ching Tung (Derek Kok 郭政鴻).

Originally known for being a land of spiritual calmness, Wudang enters a state of chaos after a group of new Hong Kong tai chi students are taken in. The new students include Yee Shan’s daughter Lok Yeung (Tavia Yeung 楊怡); the fighter Cheung Ka Kong (Timmy Hung 洪天明); son of a wealthy businessman Lok Yik Hin (Jonathan Cheung 張頴康), private female bodyguard Yeung Ching Wu (Toby Leung 梁靖琪), and model Siu Yuk (Regen Cheung 張惠雅).

The appearance of Lok Yeung triggers a painful memory in Kai Chung. Lok Yeung’s purpose in staying in Wudang is to convince her mother to give her lodging establishment to a Hong Kong investment group. Yee Shan promisies to give up the establishment if Lok Yeung manages to win a competition in three months. Meanwhile, Yee Shan purposely injures herself so Kai Chung can teach her tai chi class.

Eventually, Ching Tung overcomes his mental illness and becomes well again. He exposes Kai Chung’s true identity, and danger shrouds the Wudang Mountains.

  1. Haven’t seen a good kung fu series from TVB lately.Plot sounds convulated, poster looks overly photoshopped but otherwise am looking forward to this.

      1. @funnlim what do yourself think?,looking at the cloth and hairstyle i think they are in the tang dynasty,lol.

      2. @kolo I haven’t seen any bts or poster pics. Synopsis did not mention when so I was confused. Story kinda old fashioned but tavia looks modern so I say modern times.

      3. @funnlim
        Good question Funn. I think it is a pre modern series based on the clothing and descriptions above. It is definitely not a true ancient series as I think those are now extinct at Tvb due to their lack of resources and cheap budgets.

      4. @hetieshou, this drama is based in modern time,im looking forward because they films this drama in the real wudang mountain temple in china, plus there are many martial artist in this drama like chin siu ho,derek kwok,Yuen Chau and a real high skilled martial art master from wudang who also play a part in it. if you are interested i have a link here which you can see students who going to wudang mountain to learn wudang martial arts.

        I had a feeling this series is either modern or pre modern but with a touch of “ancientness”(if that is the right word) with wudang and martial arts,which gives this series a pre modern feeling. Thanks for the link. I have seen many China wuxia series with real landscape from China and all so seeing the real wudang is not really new to me. However,for a Tvb series to have that is new since they are so cheap on traveling and production value if you know what I mean.

        I do not want to jinx it so let’s wait and see. I have not seen a good ancient series from TVB for a very long time so I really miss it.
