Synopsis of Kenneth Ma’s “Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain”
Produced by Marco Law <西遊記>, TVB wuxia drama Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain <寒山潛龍> will premiere on Monday, June 30, taking over the prime-time slot that is currently occupied by the mainland Chinese drama, Journey to the West <西遊記>. The 30-episode series stars Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Ngo Ka Nin (敖嘉年), Power Chan (陳國邦), Selena Li (李詩韻), Lin Xiawei (林夏薇), Raymond Cho (曹永廉), Lau Kong (劉江), and Ram Chiang (蔣志光).
The Tin Kei Agency of the Northern Song, an investigation agency specializing in solving strange cases in the kingdom, is headed by the wise Fung Nam Tin (Lau Kong), who leads a group of extremely well-trained constables. His favorite apprentice, Chu Cheung Sing (Kenneth Ma), is wisdom and courage embodied in one, but Nam Tin and Cheung Sing end their partnership when they fail to come to a consensus on how to solve a particular case. Cheung Sing ends up leaving the agency to live a simple and peaceful life with his wife, To Fa (Selena Li).
Ten years later, the aging Nam Tin orders three of his most-skilled apprentices – Ma Chuen Kung (Power Chan), Ngau Tai Lik (Ngo Ka Nin), and Yeung Mau (Lin Xiawei) – to reach out to Cheung Sing and convince him to return. Cheung Sing agrees to work with the agency again, but his personality often clashes with his three partners, causing the four to frequently fight. Meanwhile, Cheung Sing is separated from his wife, but his feelings become conflicted when he ends up meeting a prostitute who looks exactly like her.
Cheung Sing learns that the opposing Jurchen kingdom has placed a mole within the Tin Kei Agency and his good friend, Hung Sap Kau (Raymond Cho) is exploited by the enemy. Cheung Sing does not know whom to trust. The line between friend and foe continues to be blurry.
