Since its broadcast, TVB series Three Kingdoms RPG <回到三國> has generated vigorous discussions among viewers. The series draws many controversies on its casting, poor visual effects and script. Despite this, Three Kingdoms RPG received overwhelming ratings. After airing for one week, ending spoilers for Three Kingdoms RPG have leaked online, fulfilling eager fans’ desire to race ahead to the characters’ ultimate destinies! What will be the fate of time traveler, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) as his life becomes more absorbed in the Three Kingdoms era?
The premier broadcast of Three Kingdoms RPG peaked at 34 points, drawing an average of 2.2 million Hong Kong viewers. Subsequent episode ratings in the first week of broadcast also averaged at 32 points, peaking at 35 points.
The story of Three Kingdoms RPG revolves around Sima Shun, played by Kenneth Ma, who is transported back to the Three Kingdoms era. He finds himself meeting the video game characters and increasingly intertwined with their fates. He later assists Zhuge Liang, played by Raymond Lam (林峯) in strategizing war battles. Shun is a frivolous and impetuous slacker, who is a stark contrast to the chivalrous and dignified Zhuge Liang. Hence, conflicts arise due to their differences in personalities and values.
Showdown Between Zhuge Liang and Sima Shun
Shun proposes a political marriage between Zhuge Liang and Liu Bei’s (Joseph Lee 李國麟) relative, played by Lily Ho (何傲兒). Zhuge Liang’s wife, played by Kaki Leung (梁嘉淇), is uneasy when she learns about it. Despite reluctance from Zhuge Liang, Shun insists on the political marriage and seeks Liu Bei’s consent. This brings about strong objection from Zhuge Liang, who thinks of leaving Liu Bei and returning to his homeland with his wife.
The conflict also escalates due to Shun’s impetuous character. He refuses to follow Zhuge Liang’s instructions and insists on doing things his way, which put the kingdom in jeopardy. Zhuge Liang is discontent with Shun and subsequently imprisons him. Shun escapes from prison and turns to Cao Cao (Law Lok Lam 羅樂林), joining hands to plot revenge against Zhuge Liang.
It is not long before Shun realizes that Cao Cao is not trustworthy. He returns to help Zhuge Liang, providing him military insight in the decisive Battle of Cliffs, as Liu Bei and Sun Quan (Pierro Ngo 敖嘉年) join forces against Cao Cao.
Kenneth and Tavia’s Love Tragedy
Shun has a love affair with maid, Tavia Yeung (楊怡), but does not want to be committed in the relationship. He longs to return to his modern world and abandons Tavia. As a result, Tavia is heart-broken and in turn marries someone else.
When Shun finally realizes that he has truly fallen in love with her, it is too late. He waits for 30 years in the modern world before successfully returning to the Three Kingdoms era. When he sees Tavia again, he is already an old man at age 60. Kenneth’s character finally dies of heart attack in the arms of Tavia.
The plot for Three Kingdoms RPG will thicken, moving towards the showdown of Shun and Zhuge Liang and how a smart aleck slacker tries to outwit the brilliant strategist. The love story between Tavia and Kenneth will also grow more intense, as it culminates towards its tragic end.
