"Beauty At War" is even more glamorous and breathtaking.

In order to air her grievances towards her elder sister Lady YUE YUET (Sheren Tang), Lady SUN YUEN-SAU (Christine Ng) spreads rumors of YUE YUET in the palace. The ambitious nursing mother SEUNG-LING (Ada Choi) tries to collect evidence against the rumors in exchange for money from others. She naturally becomes a trusted follower and a close friend of Lady YUE very soon. Meanwhile, the arrival of famous actors KO LAU-FEI (Moses Chan) and WAN TSAU-YIN (Kwan Lai Kit) captures the heart of every woman in the palace including the lonely YUEN-SAU. YUE YUET tries to stop YUEN-SAU from committing adultery by playing tricks but this put her into an intricate polygonal relationship with SEUNG-LING and LAU-FEI accidentally. YUEN-SAU tries to fight back by getting help from the fortune-teller TUNG KAT-HOI (Wong Tak Bun). Others think that KAT-HOI is a crazy guy but they never realize that the palace is origin of all the craziness…

Thoughts:  It's rare to see a 'sequel' succeed over its predecessor.  The disadvantages:  similar theme, new casting and high expectations (since we will always find ways to compare it to the prequel).  I honestly find sequels very enjoyable if I didn't watch the prequels because to me, it's a series entirely of its own.

With the three female leads being Sheren Tang, Ada Choi and Christine Ng, it may not seem as grand and great as the ladies' casting in the first one but it does not fall too far behind either.  On the other hand, the male cast seems lackluster and dull.  Only Eddie Kwan attracts me.  Moses Chan?  I would look forward to him too if he weren't paired up with Kenny Wong again!  Seriously!?  It's driving me insane that they have had so many series together!!!!  I wonder how Aimee feels about this eh?

All in all, I am looking forward to this because I am itching to see Sheren Tang, Ada Choi and Christine Ng battle it out!!  From the synopsis, seems like the focus is going to be more on Ada's character this time around...Oh!  Also cannot forget Alice Chan.

Curiosity?  Who's playing the emperor in here or is there even one at all?
