Wong Jing (王晶) is writing, producing, and directing a new modern family drama titled World of Turbulence <風雲天地>. A press conference was held in Tianjin on August 20 to announce and promote the series, and stars Liza Wang (汪明荃), Angie Chiu (趙雅芝), Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), and Hawick Lau (劉愷威) attended the event.
World of Turbulence is a 40-episode series that focuses on the complex relationships and petty hatred between members of a prominent family. The series has started filming in Tianjin on August 1 and will air sometime next year.
The drama stars Liza Wang as Kwan Yeuk Nam, a single mother who built a successful and prosperous company. Yeuk Nam lost her husband (played by Wayne Lai) many years ago when he committed suicide. She single-handedly raised her three sons, Cho Chi Wang (Kenny Wong 黃德斌), Cho Chi Yuen (Hawick Lau), Cho Chi Ko (Edwin Siu), and adopted daughter Cho Hau Yee (Kimmy Tong 童菲). As her children became older, Yeuk Nam makes plans to pass her company to her eldest, Chi Wang. Although a married man, Chi Wang is actually in love with his adopted sister Hau Yee, who is currently overseas. Hau Yee on the other hand secretly harbors feelings for second brother Chi Yuen.
Meanwhile, Chi Yuen has been putting all of his focus on his career after his girlfriend passed away due to illness. He later becomes involved in a work conflict with elder brother Chi Wang. At this time, sexy Song Chi Wah (Monica Mok 莫小棋) enters the Cho family business and wreaks havoc in Chi Wang’s life. Yeuk Nam has had enough at this point and ordered Chi Yuen to take over the company. Chi Wah, unwilling to give up on the Cho family fortune, tells Chi Wang that he is not Yeuk Nam’s biological son. The two then plot to send Chi Yuen to jail and take over the company.
At the press event, Wayne Lai spoke a bit about his guest role in the series. He revealed that his character committed suicide because of failed gambles on the stock market. Wayne also shared that he will not have any scenes with Liza Wang as Selena Li (李詩韻) will portray the younger Kwan Yeuk Nam.
