Yes, you are the king, Raymond Lam. Having two dramas air at the same time in Hong Kong and Mainland China!
And I’m saying themesong just to be modest, cause he’s singing the ending themesong also, much to many dismay. I like his singing, so it’s not an issue with me. And he has officially left his maiden home at TVB as of this week. I’m not sad, if anything, excited for his future ventures. To be honest, he hasn’t been filming that many TVB dramas so the news of his leaving didn’t surprise me nor left a gaping hole. Moreover, like many other artists who left, he’ll eventually finds his back in a few years because nobody really leaves TVB without coming back. 🙂
Now, let’s promote Vincent Wong to leading man status. You heard him, he needs to invest in a house for his family!
Raymond plays Emperor Wu. This brings back memories of his first emperor role in the hilarious time-travel drama, A Step Into the Past. His tvb drama, Line Walker, premieres on August 25th.
His leading lady is Wang Luo Dan. A servant who is gifted by Emperor Wu’s sister to the King himself. She slowly rises to power, proving her worth and becoming Empress Wei. Those who have seen her, how’s her acting?
Niki Chow as Emperor Wu’s older sister. They are the same age in real life.
Shen Tai. I don’t recognize him but he was in Love Love with Yuan Kuan and Sunny Du.
Jeremy Tsui plays Empress Wei’s ex-lover. He’s Niki’s real life boyfriend. Flawless choice, Niki. But I don’t recognize him either. He plays a role in the never-gonna-air drama Happiness of an Angel, alongside Ming Dao and Liu Shi Shi.

Themesong Music Video:
- While I do not like the hair on the lady, the costumes are lovely.
- I think it’s just me but I’m not very excited to watch this one. Weird feeling.
- Did you catch Michelle Ye‘s cameo in the music video? She plays someone’s lover. Not Raymond’s. Sad.
- Title of the song is “Behind the Glory.”
- 47-episode Virtuous Queen is scheduled to hit your small screen on August 20th in 3 stations: Zhejiang Satellite TV, Dragon TV, & Anhui TV.
