"Looking Back in Anger" (義不容情) (1989) was one of the most watched TVB series by Chinese people in Hong Kong and around the world. It remains one of the most rented VCDs to date.
Many factors contributed to the success of this series. Apart from its tragic, but memorable, storyline and its mysterious ending, this series features a strong cast, such as Felix Wong, Deric Wan (who rose to fame with his role as the main antagonist, playing the younger brother of Felix Wong's character), Carina Lau, Kathy Chow Hoi-Mei and Maggie Siu.
Also, the popular theme song of the series, "What One Wants in Life" (一生何求) was sung by the late Danny Chan (born 1958 - died 1993), which also is considered one of the most famous soundtracks in Chinese TV series history.
