A story about a socialite in Shanghai whose family falls to ruin and starts on a journey to become a spy.
Lu Han Zhi's fate is intertwined between two men from opposing sides of a war. Gao Chen who appears to be a traitor to his country is actually a Communist spy. Han Shou Min who appears to be a patriot and used to be a top spy of the Kuomindang is treading on a path of no return after being betrayed by his own comrades. Caught in a dangerous and increasingly complication situation, Lu Han Zhi grows from a mere socialite to an impassioned revolutionary.

Cast & Credits
The story is moving and engaging. From episode 1, I was intrigued with the storyline and overall premise of espionage.
In terms of acting cast, can I just say that Gao Chen is definitely "A Man for All Seasons"?!?! His upstanding, trustworthy, self-sacrificing and yes even, coward in love nature, is truly beguiling. The actor, Kevin Yan, is handsome and a half. He has been added to my list of Asian actors to follow and admire from afar.
What I really like about Chinese dramas is the evolution of characters within the story. The journey of Hanzhi is characterised not only in her development into womanhood but also in her hairstyles as she matures from the curly tendrils of youth to sophisticated coiffs, that express inner confidence as well as outer beauty.
The music for this show is very good. I dance along to the opening sequence and the OST is swoon worthy. The melodic instrumental that begins the OST introduces the love sequences perfectly.
I am currently rewatching the series, to create a mind map of the best shipper
(Gao Chen/Hanzhi) moments of the series.
Overall, I am enamoured with this story and hope by this review, you will be enamoured with it too!
Btw, do not expect the female lead to be this super smart and super brave spy or anything or you might be disappointed. She has moments like that but she is mainly a naive girl that does not know time and place, very clumsy and easily gets lost, like literally gets lost, she has no sense of direction. >.<
So try not to go in with any kind of expectations about the female lead’s character. But I can promise you that she will have a lot of character development, so don’t give up on her after watching just 2 or 3 episodes.
