Ling Qi Sa is a man who is buried by his parents' gambling debts. With no way to pay back the money, he thought about going to the dark side by getting into the kidnap and ransom business. But instead of becoming a kidnapper, he ended up saving a girl from a real kidnapping. The girl turned out to be the sole heir of a conglomerate who faced these kinds of threats every day. In a case of a kidnapping gone wrong vs. a mistaken love confession, she hires him to be her butler and helps repay his parents' debts. Grateful to have gangster collectors off his back, he vows to protect her from harms, which is no easy task.

Trust me there is a better drama that you could be watching.In chatting with some other drama fans they told me to not watch Hayate, but I couldn't listen to them. I said to myself "the anime was cool so let's try the live action!". I thought the first 2 episodes were good, so I just had to see the rest for myself. What an epic waste of my time and production money!

First what I did like; they used pretty handsome people in the cast, there were also some really cool special effects incorporated in the story. However, I hated that they had Park shin Hye with a voice over, I could never get used to it! I don't know if she was lost in translation because her acting was awful here. I kept thinking Maria should have been the female lead.

I don't know if the episodes were just long or boring. I found myself skipping episodes, and just watching the very beginning and the very end.

I didn't read the manga so maybe the story line in the drama is closest to the original, but I liked the anime way better. I think the drama had trouble staying true to the story that it was based on while trying to update it so it would be realistic and a hit. Maybe some things should never go live action.

I actually watched this because of Park Shin Hye and also because it's from an anime manga/show. This was so epic, a little bit of unbelievable and it was funny. I loved the funny scenes and yeah, the story itself was fine. A bit confusing, and surprising scenes like about the royal jade and Xiao Zhi's grandfather. I love the music, I dont know why, I just love it. The acting was fine, but I've got to say PSH wasn't that good here. I hate the dubbing of her voice, it could have been better if she really spoke taiwan without dubbing. She doesn't even look like Nagi from the original anime. But besides that, I still think this drama is good. The story, the thrills, the epic(ness). The only downfall is the looks of the cast and the dubbing.
