We get these types of questions once in a while, but these ones have us completely stumped. Any kind soul who knows, please comment below… thank you:)
Question from readers:
1. I think the series was set in Hong Kong or China in a time period between the traditional period and modern era (some Chinese wore traditional clothes and some wore suits and jackets). At the start, there was a new son-in-law in the family who the girl’s father thought was useless. He was a really nice guy but not very strong or promising. There was a sort of revolution/uprising going on I think, and the father pretended to go mad. The son-in-law took care of him, and no one, including the girl, knew. Someone suspected the father wasn’t really mad and did things like poke needles into his head and forced him to eat poop. The father passed the test (so everyone thought he was mad). The girl was also involved in the revolution/uprising.
I’m fairly sure the father was bald – he looked quite distinctive to me and I’d recognise him if I saw a scene from the series I think. Thank you, and I would appreciate your help! This has been bugging me for about 2 years now. :/ – Alicia
2. Hi. Can you help me to find this Chinese drama. There are 3 siblings if I’m not mistaken by the family of “Cha”. I can only remember Kam cha and Muk cha (if it’s correct haha). The 2 eldest brothers were evil at first. And when they are united with the good youngest brother makes a loud sound of “chaaa” to attack the enemy. – Anonymous
3. HELP ME PLEASE!!!
My cousin lent me a Kungfu serial about 7 warriors (Outlaw). They are the most feared and respected in all China until one day they recruited some one new and each one of them test his kung fu skill. The new guy apparently put poison on their food and won each fight until he battled the boss. This charming dude has a legendary sword. No one won (if I remembered correctly). Mann.. I watched this series 16 years ago and still thinking about how it ended. I never found the name of it even after several attempt of digging the internet. Anyway, they both caught by the official (police) but the boss escaped. He then go eat in a little eatery located nowhere in the desert but couldn’t pay the bill. They mock him and hit him but he couldn’t fight back because he had to cover his real identity so he decided to wash the dishes there until fateful day. A man stop by and recognize him and broke his legendary sword, they found a rolled letter inside his broken sword.
I forget the rest but can somebody tell me which series is this?? I need to finish it sooo bad. – David

#4 is Fist of Fury :is a 1995 Hong Kong martial arts television series adapted from the 1972 film of the same title. Produced by ATV and STAR TV, the series starred Donnie Yen as Chen Zhen (Cantonese: Chan Zan), a character previously portrayed by Bruce Lee in Fist of Fury (1972) and Jet Li in Fist of Legend (1994). The series is also related to the 2010 film Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen, in which Yen reprises his role.

#3 Might be "New Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sabre Series" – 倚天屠龙记
40 "Episode 40" December 30, 1986
Köke Temur shoots an arrow at Zhao Min, but Zhou Zhiruo leaps in front of the weapon to save Zhao Min. Zhao Zhiruo gives the Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre to Zhang Wuji. They are broken and both Nine Yin Manual and the Book of Wumu have been taken out. The Book of Wumu is then used to create a strategy to defeat the Mongolians. Zhang Wuji resigns as the Leader of Ming Cult to be with Zhao Min.
Can someone find a drama for me:
I only remember one scene: The costumes are of the Republican era as the girls had two braids and they still wear the blue shirt black skirt school uniforms. The only scene I can remember is that they are all at the main girls house for a party and they are in her room. They play the game of peeling the apple skin and not breaking it in front of the mirror to see who her future husband is. Then one of her friends stands in front of the mirror to play a joke and so that the face is in the mirror. They all tease the girl and laugh and then they all left the room. The mirror then shows the guy that the girl is fated with face.
This was in the late 80's early 90's when reincarnation of lost loves were really popular. I thought it was one of the "Dark Tale" stories, but could not find a similair story line form the "Dark Tale"
If anyone can give me some drama line that has this scene, I would appreciate it. I want to watch it again to satisfy my curiousity.
#1 has to be BRIDAL MASK which is a Korean Historical drama starting Joo won. I remember the drama because of the poop scene. The drama is centered around the Japanese occupation in Korea at the time and there are secret fighter that try to help the Korean people. From my own memory the guy pretending to be stupid was the original bridal mask and that was his cover, when he died his brother took over the role to avenge him. There was also a girl that was also part of the revolution who was the love interest
