Tang Ying is an innocent, naive girl who, after a failing acting career, decides to start afresh to travel to Nanzhan Bu Island (South Island) and become a surrogate shopper. However, all is not what it seems. Due to the popularity of the island and the tax-free and visa free policies in place there, it has attracted the attention of many criminal syndicates/gangs who are looking to invest on the island dueto the prospect of making an insane amount of money, and the secret war between the gangs and the police brewing there.
By accident, Tang Ying becomes embroiled in the war, as well as meeting two different men who are on opposite sides of this war: Jian Zi who is a juvenile killer, and the handsome male police commissioner Li Yong Ji. In the shadow of death, gangs and a variety of cases involving trade in the black market, will Tang Ying be able to pull through?
Cast & Credits
I loved that no one suspected the HMH to be the skilled masked fighter because he looks like such a cute puppy. The writers also did a good job in making me debate on who the good guys and who the bad guys were.
Story: a girl moves to an island to get a fresh start but ends up entangled with the mafia.
It's rare for me to like a contemporary C-drama, but this one really drew me in. Our heroine is funny, with a personality that made me instantly like her. She's someone that seemed very real. I like the way she handles certain situations that would make me want to die of embarrassment. I was a little misled by the poster as to who the hero was, but I have to say, I'm really digging the fresh faced puppy that's really a mafia assassin (?). It's easy to believe that no one suspects him, because seriously, nobody ever would. He pretty much falls for her from the beginning, and it is a damn delight to watch him work for her attention. The story has kept me engaged so far, and while the editing can sometimes (though rarely) make me feel like I missed something, the cinematography is nothing less than gorgeous. I would definitely recommend this to people who liked City Hunter or Healer.
