Heart of Greed 3 溏心风暴3 is a drama co-produced by Tencent and TVB that brings back a great TVB classic in celebration of the network’s 50th Anniversary this year. The franchise started with the 2007 hit drama Heart of Greed and was subsequently followed by Moonlight Resonance, a spinoff that went on to become an even bigger hit.
Similar to its predecessors, the story revolves around infighting and politicking within a family-owned business. The veteran cast that includes Louise Lee, Xia Yu, Michelle Yim and Susanna Kwan return for the drama, though only Bosco Wong seems to be returning from the younger cast.
This time around, Bosco Wong plays an uncle who clashes with his nephew, played by Vincent Wong. There are two clans that have merged – the Huang Family and the Xu family – which leads to many misunderstandings in the running of a well-established Hong Kong-style cafe business. Moreover, a Romeo and Juliet type romance between two members of the opposing families becomes an integral plot point that drives the story forward.
The huge ensemble is led by Bosco Wong, Vincent Wong, Louise Lee, Xia Yu, Michelle Yim, Susanna Kwan, Louis Yuen, Joseph Lee, Eliza Sam, Priscilla Wong, Sharon Chan and Michael Tong. Lau Ka-ho who was one of TVB’s golden producer partly thanks to his involvement in the Heart of Greed franchise works his magic behind the scenes once more.
Release Date: November 27, 2017 Tencent QQ (one episode daily from Monday to Friday at 8:00pm)
