Fun Facts

  • It is inspired by the life of Hong Kong entertainment mogul Run Run Shaw.
  • It is part of the dramas that were affected by the Hallyu Ban, an unofficial ban that was in effect in China to restrict all forms of Hallyu aka Korean Wave due to the political disagreement between China and Korea over THAAD. On October 31, 2017, there were reports that both sides were making a move to mend diplomatic ties and news that the virtual ban has been lifted came days later. (Source: Sina)
  • It is one of four dramas starring Zhang Han that were affected by the Hallyu Ban. There was a running joke that Zhang Han had it worst as all of his dramas couldn't air. There was Braveness of the Ming with Park Ming Young, Gorgeous Workers with Choo Ja Hyun and The Rhapsody of A Summer Dream with Go Jun Hee.
  • Gu Hye Sun was initially the leading lady, but her scenes were removed and Jia Qing was brought in to film more scenes.
  • Due to the leading lady being replaced and due to its subject matter, the drama was included as part of the list of films in celebration of the 20th year of Hong Kong's return to China and managed to secure a broadcast date before the Hallyu Ban ended.
