[Thoughts] Under the Veil - Katy Kung and Stanley Cheung

So aside from the three main couples, there is also Katy Kung and Stanley Cheung.  Katy Kung portray a princess who fell in love with the crown prince.  She then got cursed and became a bird that follows him around.  Personally, I found their story to be quite interesting...if it had more time to develop, I'd love to see more!  I really wanted to see more scenes between them where Katy was the bird...love her bird character more so than the princess xD

Oh may I add this comment...while many say that the CGI is pretty horrible, I do agree for the ocean parts (and the pathetic end battle in the sand =.=) but others were quite well done.  Like the magical power effects, the birds etc were nice.  One thing that I really wish was for more fighting scenes...such a pity that only the first story had some fights but not much actually happen afterwards.  I will be writing more later about the three main stories in a shorter review.
The crown prince (Stanley Cheung) first met Princess Lap Ka when the people of her nation came over to discuss the relationship between the two nations.  He fell for her that night and the next day, when she was about to leave with her father, he wanted to ask her to marry her.  Unfortunately she wrote him off and told him when he have the power to talk, he can talk to her later (the two nations got into a dispute).  So she left.

(Both of them really regretted what they said that day.  The prince regretted not being straightforward enough to ask her to stay and Princess Lap Ka regretted now giving him the chance to say what he was about to say.  She really wanted to know what he wanted to say and that's how near the end of the story, she will be doing everything she can to turn back time to that single moment.)
Later the crown prince decided to go find her but rumours said that her nation has been completely wiped out by the devil their people worshipped.  When he arrived there, the whole nation was gone but he spotted a statue that looks like Princess Lap Ka.  Stuck in the desert, all his men died and the crown prince struggled to bring back the statue by himself.  He soon couldn't handle and when he fell down, he illusion Princess Lap Ka calling to him and a bird appeared out of nowhere.  This bird then stayed with him till he got back to his country.  This is why he think that the bird (he named it Shiu Loi Fung) is a reincarnation of Princess Lap Ka.

Whenever the crown prince is about to get hurt by the snake demon, Loi Fung would always be there.  One day he was attacked and fell into the water.  Loi Fung attempted to go into the water to search for him but of course she could not because she is a bird.

At this time, we find out that she was cursed to be in the stone by the demon her nation worshipped before but she was the only one who could survive.  Since they Guanyin has been looking after her.  She then asked Guanyin why she was the only one who survived and that she would've rather died that they if she had known she would be all alone.  When she met the crown prince again, she was happy enough being by his side even as a bird.

Honestly, I love Katy Kung and feel that she can be more promoted than she is now.  She is a dependable actress and I love watching her scenes.  Eliza was super cute as the carp, but I wonder how Katy would be like if she got that role instead...
So....the crown prince did not die in the sea.  Instead, Guanyin embedded him in the rocks and decided to let his fate determine whether he dies or not.  Loi Fung can't do anything about it and so she set off to find his friend, Fung Sam (Kristal Tin), to help set him free.

After contacting Fung Sam and getting her bird friends to help bring him to the place where the crown prince is, Loi Fung promised Guanyin to fly around the sun and moon a thousand times in order to get back that one moment she regretted.
She managed to do it and they were able to share that one moment they missed out last time.  He asked her if she was willing to be his wife and she immediately replied yes, saying that she will stay with him for eternity.  Just as they held out their hands, her body began to disappear into flames...caused by flying around the sun and moon a thousand times.

I was at least hoping to see them hug or...at least hold hands!!!  But she disappeared before that even happened Q.Q  How sad....
The crown prince woke up to find out that she (Princess Lap Ka/Loi Fung) is gone...I thought that Calvin was impressive in this scene.  Haha in some scenes he would have emotions but others not so much xD  Man...Bosco Wong is worse though no?  I usually love him but as a scholar...whose personality is dead pan boring, there isn't so much life in his acting either.  So sad...
Yah....so pretty lols.  Haha did you guys like their story?  Personally I think a big part of why I like the story so much is credited to Katy Kung...
