This is the best drama I ever watched

The drama is so interesting and full of suspense. I finished watching it without skipping anything.

It talks about a guy named Pan Qiwen, who is a plastic surgeon who gets kidnapped. When he wakes up, his face is changed to another person’s face. His wife and child couldn’t recognize him, and in his home, an imposter is pretending to be him. He finds out that he is a wanted man. He goes through a lot of challenges, meets Wang Xiaoai and his wife finally realized that he is Pan Qiwen. Pan Qiwen is found by a detective named Li Yao and Li Yao knows his secret. Li Yao tells him that Pan Qiwen’s face is a guy named Song Kun. Li Yao trains Pan Qiwen to be Song Kun. During the funeral of A Hai, the best friend of Song Kun, Song Kun (Pan Qiwen), comes out of training and becomes an undercover. What challenges would he go through? Would he find out the person that changed his face?
(Note: I bet this review is confusing. The drama has a lot of people with changed/swapped faces so I don’t really know how to explain it.)

A Thrilling Journey Built on Nonsense

By reading the synopsis of the drama, you already know that it's complete nonsense.  Plastic surgery, as mentioned in a comment below, takes a long time to recuperate (gatalito). And even longer if you receive full-face surgery. Another commenter mentioned that voices can't be changed, which is obvious (Waikiki man). I'm sure the writers are aware of this, but I'm guessing they're hoping the audience will turn off their logical thinking. Thus, if you plan on watching this drama, go into it with your brain off.

Now, many things annoyed me. The first is, of course, the plastic surgery plot device. It just doesn't make sense. I was hoping it would be the end of the drama's nonsense, but it wasn't. The writers had to do something ridiculous towards the end of the drama that reminded me of wuxia dramas somehow. I literally have no idea how or why they ended up there. There's also another illogical thing in the drama where a character has a great sense of smell. I mean like, they can smell something miles away. Okay, I exagerrated a bit but you get the idea. Another thing that irritated me was Pan Qi Wen's (Zhou Yi Wei) strange relationship with Wang Xiao Ai (Yuan Shan Shan). Don't get me wrong: I respect Wang Xiao Ai for her courage and strength. However, there were times when I disliked her. Her weird relationship with Pan Qi Wen didn't work for me. I won't go into detail about this because it would involve spoilers, so I'll just leave it at that.

However, if you persevere through the nonsensical, you will find yourself immersed in a thrilling journey that our main character, Pan Qi Wen, embarks on. From the first few episodes, there are already so many twists and turns. There were moments when I thought to myself, "Oh, I know exactly where the writers are going with the story." Of course, I didn't. Everything is not as it seems. Everyone is not as they seem. The real fun begins when Pan Qi Wen eventually chooses to utilize his new face and identity as Song Kun to his advantage in order to discover the truth behind his face alteration. That would require him to enter Song Kun's dangerous world of corruption, and train to truly be him.

I have to say, the drama did an great job with the villains and the mystery aspect. The villains were a treat. Each one of them had their motives and each was cunning in their own ways. Pan Qi Wen's scenes with them were among the most interesting and exciting. The mystery in this drama is quite convoluted. There are several layers to it, and numerous people are involved. Looking back, the writers left many crumbs throughtout the drama. Even a minor reaction from a character might be a significant clue to the mystery.

I started the drama for Zhou Yi Wei, and I'm not disappointed. He truly delivered. He embodied Song Kun and Pan Qi Wen. And surprisingly, I also enjoyed the many bromances in the drama. Zhou Yi Wei had great chemistry with all of them. The bromances provided tremendous comedic relief as well. I also have to applaud Chi Jia as Li Yao. His scenes with Zhou Yi Wei were some of the best. Unrelated, but the drama's setting is very nice and I loved Song Kun's outfits lol.

In short, don't use your brain when watching it, except for trying to uncover the mystery. The villains, mystery, and the acting are worth giving New Face a try.
