Living on the streets of Hong Kong, Chu Gam Chun claims that he is the Last Emperor of China. As social worker Fung Siu Yung follows his case, she gradually reveals his adventurous, absurd, legendary life devoted to pursing his love Yi Yung Yung. In the early 1930s, when he was still a youngster, Chu Gam Chun, along with his brother Chu Cheung Fun and friends Ng Do Ho and Nau Yuk Gon, compete in a firecracker scramble to earn money for him to marry Yi Yung Yung. Because of an accident, they not only miss out on the prize money, they also encounter strange people and events one after another. Ng Do Ho's sister Ng Do Yu is also implicated and becomes a social flower. Chu Gam Chun and his pals fail in the military and instead, become prisoners. They later end up in Shanghai. With the help of triad leader Nau Lik, Chu Gam Chun transforms into a powerful Shanghai tycoon. Although his heart still thinks about Yi Yung Yung, a missed opportunity causes the two of them to be separated again for forty years.

Roque Emperor - The Upper Crust (band) - Netflix
The Upper Crust is an American hard rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. The members adopt the personae of 18th century aristocratic fops and sing songs from that perspective. They use titles of nobility, wear powdered wigs and period costumes, and maintain a snobbish attitude both during live performance and on their albums. The members say that their guiding philosophy is “if not great and excellent, then debauched.” Their major music influence is Bon Scott-era AC/DC, along with glam rock band Kiss and fictional heavy metal band Spinal Tap. Rolling Stone wrote, “[d]ismiss Boston's Upper Crust as a joke rock band if you must, but give them this much: they're actually funny, and there's as much rock as mock to their singular brand of ‘roque’”, adding “there's plenty of worthy riffs and double-entendre wit to go around”. The group originated from a Boston surf rock band called 'The Clamdiggers'. Other related bands were The Bags, The Titanics, The Satanics, The Flies, The Oysters and Seks Bomba. The Upper Crust has appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. The music video game Guitar Hero included the band’s signature song “Eureka, I've Found Love” as a bonus song. The band has also guest starred in an episode of Codename: Kids Next Door (“Operation: P.A.R.T.Y.”) on Cartoon Network on January 26, 2007, as they perform songs like “Tell Mother I'm Home” and “Let them Eat Rock”.
