Synopsis[edit]

It is 1963 and the Yuan Clan Martial Arts Association is in turmoil. Clan head Yuan Zhen Fei suffered several personal tragedies; his wife suffered brain damage and their son Chen Xi was killed in a road accident. Several of his former disciples have gone rogue and now want to usurp him as head. Unknown to Zhen Fei, his wife had an affair with Song Zhi Zhong and had twin boys. To cover up the affair, she took one twin, Chen Xi, while Song took the other, Ya Zai, and moved away to Malaysia. Song Ya Zai is a fisherman who lives a contented life without ambition for fame or fortune. By circumstance he was taken into the Yuan clan as he was mistaken for Chen Xi but is eventually accepted by Zhen Fei. Zhen Fei's rogue disciple Duan Tian He has been wreaking havoc around town by using his martial arts skills for evil purposes with the intent of unseating Zhen Fei as head. Ya Zai soon finds himself in the middle of a long and bloody family feud between his ancestral clan and the Yuans. When his sweetheart Wanyi dies in the bitter struggle, a distraught Ya Zai decides he has had enough of the fighting and exiles himself to a small village. However a local tycoon has been eyeing the villagers' land and hires Duan Tian He to chase them out by force. Ya Zai defeats Tian He and kills him but the family feud has reached a boiling point. Another of Zhen Fei's former disciples Ou Jian Feng devises a complicated to plan to end it once and for all. Can Jian Feng and Ya Zai put to bed a long-lasting animosity and hatred?

Trivia[edit]

  • This drama was planned not to be a co-production with NTV7. It was first broadcast in Singapore before exclusive broadcasting rights were sold to Malaysia.
  • This drama stars Mediacorp artistes Rui En, Elvin Ng and Paige Chua who have not taken part in Malaysian co-productions before.
  • Rui En and Elvin Ng pair up again for the fourth time after Love at 0°C, By My Side and The Dream Catchers.
  • Elvin Ng plays two roles, as Song Ya Zai and Yuan Chen Xi. Elvin Ng pairs up with Chris Tong for the first time; they both starred in C.L.I.F. earlier in the year but rarely shared any scenes together.
  • Joanne Peh was the initial announced choice for the role of Tang Jia Bao, but was turned down as she was offered a role in A Song to Remember. Paige Chua played the role instead.
  • This drama ended up being broadcast on Astro Shuang Xing as ntv7 did not broadcast the drama after five months.

Accolades[edit]

Code of Honour won two nominations at the 2012 Star Awards.

Award Actor Outcome
Best Actor Andie Chen Nominated
Favourite On-screen Couple Rui En/Elvin Ng Won

The series was parodied at the awards ceremony with ceremony co-host Lee Teng "directing" the drama. Dennis Chew and Quan Yi Fong portrayed Elvin Ng's Song Yazai and Rui En's Ou Kelu respectively. The skit made a reference to a controversial scene from On the Fringe in which Zhang Yaodong's character had to "rape" Rui En's character.
