The story of 3 friends who build a successful English language school in China called "New Dream". This school helps the dreams of Chinese teenagers come true. Before they stood proudly in the American stock market, many stories happened with them.
It is the early years of the Manchu (Qing) empire and the new Emperor (Andy Lau) needs all the help he can get from Tony Leung. Tony plays a double-dealing rogue who is never quite sure whose side he is really on, the Manchu emperor, or the Ming loyalists who want China to be ruled by the Chinese. Literal English title is "The Duke of Mountain Deer". Written by

For those only familiar with his more well-known recent roles (Hero, Infernal Affairs, Hard Boiles) you'll be in for a shocker. Tony Leung the serious actor plays a silly, immature, selfish, and spoiled brat who happens to be a bit of a hound with the ladies.
It's HK-style humour at it's best and Tony is excellent in the role. Andy plays his friend and with a secret.
The story is often silly but fast paced putting Wai Siu-Bow (Tony) in situations where he's got to outwit his enemies. This is a story by Louis Cha (Gum Yung) and unlike his other kung-fu dramas, the main character needs to rely on his wits, not his fighting prowess to defeat the bad guys.
This is the one that got Tony famous.
