Originally, I was surfing the web when I found this drama series. I recognized that Bosco Wong was mainly a Hong Kong Actor and I was curious to see how he would do on a Mandarin speaking drama. I also really like watching  crime mystery detective type dramas. When I started the drama, I was immediately hooked.

The way this drama was written is a lot different from a lot of other crime detective dramas where the crime is already committed and the main cast needs to track down and catch the culprit. That usually takes like three to four episodes per case. This one has a title that shows up when a new segment starts to tell the audience a new case has started. The cases are connected in a way where the main cast are basically on a journey. They weave a lot of the other developments into the drama as the case unfold (like let's say the main characters' love story or character development). The cases are very interesting and keeps me on the edge of my seat.

As I watch this drama, I could actually care less about the main characters' love story, I was actually following the second main leads. Usually, there is some sort of love triangle or square around the main cast, but this drama is different, the second main leads develop an interesting relationship. It's pretty funny since the guy is basically a prince  where everyone is usually very impressed by that except this girl. I really liked watching scenes with these two since almost kind of rare. Their story is hidden behind all the different kinds of plot developments from the cases themselves to the political plot. There are times where I watch these two  and I go when did their relationship get to that stage? Probably also due to the fact that there are different versions of how many episodes there are. The total number of episodes are 40, some websites have 36 or 39. The shorter ones have some scenes cut out in different parts of different episodes but I found out that it was most of the scenes for my favorite couple, the second main leads.

The music is really great because the main cast, the ones that are traveling together each contributed a song. The song that each of them sang sounds to me like it's their unofficial or maybe even official character's theme song. I thought that was really awesome.

This is the first drama where I saw Ma Tian Yu and now I'm a big fan.

P.S. I found a cover song on YouTube where the lyrics of the song were rewritten to be about my favorite couple and if you watch the drama from beginning to end, you'll see there is a secret message in the lyrics inspired by the drama itself. I had to watch the music video several times to realize that some of the first words were a different color and bigger text to find out the message.

The music video seem to have been taken down because I cannot find it but the song name is called 誤芳瑶 by ASSEN捷 if anyone wants to check it out. If you can find the lyrics, you can see the message when it starts spelling out Yuan Fang Meng Yao.

cases have blatantly copied criminal tricks from young detective kindaichi.

What the title says........................................................... If you watched the earlier episodes of the original Kindaichi’s anime tv series, you will immediately recognize the exact same tricks murders use that are recited in here.................... The storytelling style of serial murderers and suspense is also just like kindaichi. ............................ If you know you, you know........ This is overall a nice tv show but it’s be better if the credits responsibly tell the audience this draws heavy inspiration from kindaichi shounen no jikenbo.
