Born Rich (Traditional Chinese: 富貴門, literally Gate of Wealth) is an ongoing 2009 TVB television drama produced and created by Chong Wai Kin. Loosely based on a certain Hong Kong business tycoon, Born Rich is promoted as TVB's "grand production" – it largely features an ensemble cast and will have a total of 41 episodes, with each episode lasting a total of 45 minutes. Part of the series was filmed in Sabahmarker, Malaysiamarker.

Synopsis

Sophisticated banker Marcus Cheuk (Ray Lui) mistakes con artist Sha Fu-loi (Gallen Lo) for his half brother Cheuk Yatming, fortuitously elevating the swindler to one of the leading figures in the banking industry. The lost and found brotherhood has blinded Marcus to Fu-loi’s real nature and intentions.

Marcus is kidnapped overseas by a group of rioters. He undergoes a dramatic personality change after the incident. His wife Connie (Jamie Chik) has tried her best to console him but still cannot help him get over the unpleasant experience. Longing for more comfort and support, Marcus gets back with his ex-lover Angie (Kenix Kwok). Connie is heartbroken to learn about the affair and it has left the broken mirror that can't be mended.

The identity of Cheuk Yatming gives Fu-loi not only a sense of family warmth but also a sweet taste of romance. He finds himself in love with Marcus's younger sister Rene (Anita Yuen). Rene is also attracted to Fu-loi, but thinking that they are true biological siblings, she decides to keep her love under wraps and stays with her long-term admirer Topman (Joe Ma) instead. This comes as a huge blow to Fu-loi. He is not willing to lose his love, but neither can he reveal his real identity. Caught up in the dilemma between love and money, Fu-loi finally chooses the fortune road of no return.

It is all about a tough battle for money, a devious triangle of love, and a severe challenge to ethics.
