Emma's Performance: A
Song to Hypnotize Chow Long
Emma will sing the role of Siu Kiu,
the wife of Chow Yer.
At that time, China was split up into three countries: East, West, and North. Chow Yer is the main general of the East side. The East side had teamed with the West to fight the North. Chow Yer himself is very smart and talented, but the West side advisor, Hung Ming, is even more clever than him. Chow Yer is insanely jealous of Hung Ming. Before the actual war begins, Chow Yer falls ill because he cannot get over his envy. His wife, Siu Kiu tries to encourage him to let go of personal issues and focus on his duty to his country.
