TVB will turn back its focus on antiheroes and villains with Amy Wong’s (王心慰) latest television drama Black Heart White Soul <忠奸人>, which is slated to premiere on July 14. The 30-episode drama will take over TVB Jade’s third prime-time slot, which is currently occupied by The Ultimate Addiction <點金勝手> starring Bosco Wong (黃宗澤).
Starring Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), and Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Black Heart White Soul is a crime thriller about a once-honest man who slips into a point of no return after he becomes physical impaired. The style of the series is likened to the 2008 drama Last One Standing <與敵同行>, an acclaimed thriller that was also produced by Amy Wong and starred Roger Kwok.
A heist case brings crippled barrister Ko Chit Hang (Roger Kwok), CID investigator Cheung Lap Fan (Ron Ng), and Portland street girl Tam Mei Ching (Kristal Tin) together, twisting their fates. Mei Ching, who gets embroiled in a series of break-in crimes due to her relationship with a triad boyfriend, is sentenced to jail for robbery. Her defendant lawyer Chit Hang helps her through the hard times and the two develop an unlikely romance. When Mei Ching is released, Chit Hang patiently mentors her and guides her through life after prison.
While investigating a case, Lap Fan discovers that he was the one who accidentally shot Chit Hang in the legs years ago, which caused Chit Hang to lose his ability to walk. However, not only does Chit Hang forgive Lap Fan, he also befriends him, but with ulterior motives.
The accident caused Chit Hang’s closest friends and family to abandon him, but this only made Chit Hang stronger, more ambitious, but also, more risky and cunning. To survive and overcome the discrimination and lost pride he suffers through his disability, Chit Hang crosses extreme borders to win legal battles. He becomes obsessed with money, and chooses to represent wealthy businessmen Ma Kai Yuen (Louis Cheung 張繼聰) and To Yi Hang (Waise Lee 李子雄) even if it means to sacrifice his honor. Virtue is no longer possible. All characters are forced to trek through black and white in a battle for victory.
