Cast & Credits
I'm aware that it's probably cliche at this point to have romance-driven revenge and undercover Chinese shows are certainly not new. However, I can say that there's 0 romance in terms of development. The show is as simple as it comes (drugs, boss, undercover agent, police, gangs) but it is also neither black nor white in its portrayal of the main characters. You'll fall in love with some you shouldn't be and you'll hate some that you shouldn't be. Personally, I'm very attached to the characters, and knowing them, I fear the ending as soon as I grew attached.
The most important aspect of this show, to me, is the relationship between the two male leads. There're lies, truths, deceptions, covers, and twist and turns that you might never see coming. But through it all, it only melds the two together. Their relationship is more or less build on lies, as expected between a drug leader and an undercover police officer, but it's exactly that that makes the whole story satisfying yet difficult to watch at times.
So if you're looking for some thriller/crime/action without it being entirely romance-driven, or having the main character be pulled astray by a female character, or losing excitement, or lacking 'human' characters, then this show is definitely perfect to add to your watched show collection.
also the male lead is perfectly competent without being naive like some random rookie officers. (MILD SPOILER) Honestly, gwad, no wonder all the drug dealers want him to work for them.
Edit: While the ending does fall a little flat, I'm still very pleased by the drama and the whole ride it took me on. It's not a bad ending, don't get me wrong, it just is flat compared to how amazing the other episodes were.
I loved the past message of the daily fight by the cops fighting drugs, but in my view also raised many questions and why's: Why are the laws so heavy in china, why not give a second chance to those who really didn't have a choice to go to the drugs?.
Deep down watching this drama we will eventually feel that not everything is certain sometimes people take certain directions because they have no option.
Now speaking of the characters, I loved the 4 main characters, and the romance was something I didn't miss.
The agent (lead actor), is smart and has a good development throughout the drama, it must be for this reason that everyone wanted to work with him. Also I need to praise his sense of empathy for others around him, even if they were his enemies.
Two others are the drug-dealing brothers who show that life is not always easy, that often the lack of a family bosom, and being born in a poor environment makes us want to survive, often choosing and following the wrong ways. It is noteworthy the love and loyalty of both characters, even trafficking, both remained loyal to each other and especially liked the younger brother Tao. I can't wait to see more dramas with these actors.
Finally, you will be shocked by the ending, and I think if you give yourself a chance to see this drama you will not regret it.
