I watched this series twice and doubted if I should do a review on it.
Annie Man: I like watching her in ancient series such as The Colorful Life and Legendary Four Aces and Strike at Heart. She’s funny and kind in this drama. Thought it was funny how she use her power to play with Evergreen Mak because she was pissed at how he treated Benny Badly. Annie’s mission is to protect the dragon pearl and put it back to the dragon sculpture so the world can be peaceful. Annie’s other mission is to find the royal prince. The royal prince has to be kind. Annie helped Benny going to the pst to see who’s his biological mother. She tries to convince Benny that the empress is fake and is a lizard but Benny wouldn’t believe her. Benny believed the fake empress by putting Annie in bottle that she will go to heaven. The fake empress killed Annie in the bottle. Annie died the first time. The goddess then put Annie’s soul in a young man’s body. Annie lost all her power but still try to find a way to tell Benny that the fake empress is a lizard. She practice to regain her power for fifteen days. Annie sacrificed a lot for Benny. The god reminded Annie that Fairy and Human cannot love each other. Annie goes back to heaven after her power is fully recovered then she begged the gods to let her go back to the earth to help Benny. She sacraficed herself for Benny by going inside Lee Kwok Lun’s body and control his body. Benny pointed a sword in Lee Kwok Lun which killed both Lee Kwok Lun and Annie. Annie died for the second time. Many years later, Benny becomes king. Annie reincarnated and become the queen.
Benny Chan: He’s kind and enjoy helping others which makes him gullible and believed other easily. He got used by Evergreen Mak then he got used by Lee Kwok Lun. He’s the royal prince. He loves Tavia in the beginning but willing to sacrificed himself so Evergreen Mak can be with her.Tavia got pissed at Benny when he keeps on missing Annie. Benny told Tavia that he only wants to know how’s Annie is doing in heaven. Tavia told Benny not to deny himself that he loves Annie.
Evergreen Mak plays the greedy and cunning man. You’ll get irritated of how selfish he is in this series but you’ll also laugh at all the mean things he does.He always repeat the quote that he saved Benny by the seashore when he was a baby so Benny should repay him back. When he found out that Annie is a fairy, he uses her to stop the time to steal gold and luxuries to court Tavia. He pretended to be the royal prince. He became selfish toward the middle of the series as he tries to force Tavia to love him. Love cannot be force. He forced Tavia to marry him.He got irritated whenever Tavia is with Benny. He even made Benny lives in poverty to revenge. He turned into a nice guy after he got arrested by the fake empress and saw Benny cried and helped him. I was glad he trusted Annie when she told him that Lee Kwok Lun disguised into the empress. Kinda pity him for turning into an eunuch because Lee Kwok Lun hurt his manly part.
Tavia Yeung: Her role is not really important in this drama. She plays a pretty female who Benny and Annie loves her at first sight. I feel sorry that she marries Benny when she knows that Benny loves Annie. I like how she’s outgoing and do what she says. She objects to marrying Benny since she doesn’t want to live with someone who doesn’t love her. I also feel poor that Lee Kwok Lun killed her dad. She sacrificed her life by taking a stab when Lee Kwok Lun tries to kill Benny. She asked Annie to take care of Benny.
Lee Kwok Lun: He is the main villain in this drama. Most you have seen him in many dramas. He is a lizard who tries to take the pearl to gain more power.He disguised into the empress to ruin the world. He put many poles in different locations and when he hit the pole then Benny’s royal blood family going to throw up blood. He knew Evergreen Mak is a fake royal prince but used him to make the people suffer. He hypnotized Tavia with a coin and used her to ask Benny to return the dragon pearl.
Helena Law: She plays the role of Evergreen Mak’s mother. She used a spell to fool Annie into thinking that Evergreen Mak is a royal prince. She loves both Benny and Evergreen Mak. She showed Benny and Evergreen Mak the book of lizard and the two powerful swords.
Law Koon Lan: She plays the real and fake empress in this series. She feels lonely as the empress. She loves Benny’s honesty and learned to be forgiving toward the servants.Unfortunately she got locked by her advisor Lee Kwok Lun right after she found out that Benny is her grandson. She did a good job acting as a fake empress being impersonated by Lee Kwok Lun.
This series as alright. Watch it if you love Magical series and ancient comedy. Maybe the new series are not so good that’s why I enjoyed this series more. I used to dislike this series the first time I watch it, and I used to get annoyed by Benny’s character and thought Tavia looked weird. Now I got a different perspective on Benny and Tavia’s character.
Overall I would rated it 4 out of 5 stars.
