Sweetness In The Salt 碧血盐枭

Premiering 5th Jan - 6th February Mon-Fri, 8.30pm

NIP CHI YUEN (Steven Ma), who works in the anti-smuggling camp, is determined to wipe out the Tau's Fort, which is the stronghold for salt smugglers. He pretends to be a down-and-out scholar. TAU SING SUET (Tavia Yeung), daughter of the chief smuggler, sympathizes with YUEN and puts him up in the village. Later, they even become fond of each other. During an anti-smuggling operation SUET is badly hurt and has since been separated from YUEN and her family. Fortunately she is saved by WU TING HIN (Raymond Wong), son of salt merchant WU KIN (Kwok Fung). HIN takes her home. One day, SUET is horrified to see the dead bodies of her parent being hung on the wall of the city tower, and that the official standing on the top of the tower telling the public not to sell smuggled salt is none other than the man she misses day and night. She is heartbroken, and her love for YUEN turns into hatred that moment on.

HIN finds a job for SUET at the salt company his family runs to help her get over her unhappiness. To repay him, she devotes herself entirely to the job. As time goes by, HIN starts to fall in love with her. However his critical illness making him hesitates to express his love for her. SUET's real identity comes to light when her younger uncle reappears out of the blue. HIN, for fear that his family will report SUET, proposes to her.

The plot sounds like a usual TVB series, but it's pretty romantic! And Tavia looks super pretty in this series. I was also looking forward to another Tavia&Steven series, they were awesome together in Land of Wealth. But due to school, homework and what not.. I won't be watching this, until probably February :pandacloud_30:

  1. er... Ting Hin married Sing Suet because he needed her help to rebuild his family business... not because he was afraid that his family will report Sing Suet.
