TVB’s version of "Dream of the Red Chamber" will focus on the most controversial character in the novel, Wang Hsi Feng. She is an extremely calculative and manipulative character and through her eyes, we will see the true side of human strengths, weaknesses, and emotions.
The character of Wang Hsi Feng handles matters in the Jia household very meticulously and orderly, gaining the favor of Grandmother Jia, but also commands fear from those beneath her.
Outwardly, Wang appears to come from a cultivated background and manages matters efficiently, upholding half of the operations of the Jia mansion. However behind her glorious exterior are many ugly secrets.
Wang’s greatest accomplishment in life was not being absorbed by love and romantic sentiments, but rather using her best efforts to uphold the Jia mansion’s extravagant lifestyle. As the Jia family’s fortunes turn sour, how will Wang’s life and destiny be impacted?
