Palace rivalry drama have always been welcomed by the audiences especially housewives. Hong Kong series such as War and Beauty (金枝欲孽), Beyond the Realm of Conscience (宮心計) and Deep in the Realm of Conscience (深宮計) and Chinese drama including Empresses in the Palace (甄嬛傳), The Legend of Mi Yue (芈月傳) and The Empress of China (武媚娘傳奇) are based on fighting for love and power as well as the complicated role characters and classic dialogues become the reasons behind the high ratings records.
Apparently after War and Beauty drama, TVB appears to release one drama based on palace tension per year. In 2004 TVB Sales Presentation, it showcased a workpiece (天命所歸) and the background took place in Tang dynasty. The history illustrated that Emperor Taizong killed his brothers and sowed discord in the army in order to become a king. In the preview clip at that time, Gallen Lo (羅嘉良) acted as Emperor Taizong while Marco Ngai (魏駿傑) and Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) portrayed as his brothers.
Although it is already exciting to see Gallen and Marco, but have you ever wonder about the female lead? Based on the information, TVB invited Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) who tried to seek revenge on Gallen and she asked while holding a knife towards him in the preview: “Are you fit to be an emperor? You even kill your own siblings!” Gallen replied with a domineering look: “My conscience is clear.” Hence, what will happen to both of them in the end? It remains a mystery until today and is obvious that the series (天命所歸) will definitely become a classic workpiece if TVB completes the shooting. As Gallen left TVB in 2003 and ventured into China market thereafter, it is uncertain if the series becomes unsuccessful because of that.
