In a world where the internet reigns supreme over the lives of most people, few people give more than an afterthought to the idea of security. But cyber-villains lurk in dark corners of the web, ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims. Into this online world has come a gang of criminals who now plot to devastate China with their own brand of terror and fraud. But while these malicious, self-serving scammers, hackers, and fraudsters might have powerful IT tools at their fingertips, three heroes are about to emerge. Qin Huai, Zhou You, and Chen Mo are three very different young men with wildly different personalities - ranging from streetwise extroverts to quiet gamers. What they all have in common, however, is a shared passion for technology and the power of the internet. They also share a deep-felt sense of justice. And although they do not trust each other to begin with, they soon realize that if they pool their skills, they might just be able to thwart the forces of evil! Will this Web 3.0-era version of the Three Musketeers save the day? (Source: Viki; edited by MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Strong Start that Petered Out in the Middle But Came Swinging for the Fences at the End

Wanted something cybercrime-CSI-ish and this seemed to fit the bill. Didn't know anyone in the cast save for actor who played ZY and Xu Lu a bit from previous series. Had a strong beginning that petered out in the middle only to come out swinging for the fences in the final 3 episodes. Definitely needs a season 2 with the same cast to properly finish the cliffhanger.

Pros: Probably the first drama ever that I will say had a really catchy opening theme that I didn't fast forward before I get into favorite character and other things. It made you actually anticipate what you were going to watch even when that failed to deliver. Favorite character was the ML or QH; man had the patience of a saint and his straight path towards justice and finding out who wronged his best friend and Godmother were beyond admirable. Next favorite character was Ms. Lin the lawyer; even though she didn't know until pretty much the end that her boyfriend was a class A douchebag, she never changed her morality or ethics towards her partners or friends.

Though I liked CM in the very beginning and once he got on board with QH, his whole arc with MT was very unnecessary. The two ladies who worked in QH's office were alright additions and out of the villains, the only ones that made any real sense were MPC and LB, though the latter needs season 2 to figure out. Had some semblance of comedy here and there and meaningful moments of care between the protagonists.

Cons: This plot took a nosedive in the middle and became very boring and confusing. The MT/CM arc (shoving a relationship into somewhere it didn't belong) just like the MT/General arc were unnecessary and very confusing. We assume it was the General who scammed Godmother in the beginning though there's no real confirmation or admission of that. ZY also an alright character; great in the beginning but then was dumbed down into an arrogant and dumb kid who spilled personal information to complete strangers online. None of it made any sense given the industry he worked in and the responsibility placed on his shoulders. He regrew his brains towards the end.

For seasoned hackers, they couldn't pick up on pretty obvious things and it just slowed the entire show down. When they "killed" the General off, he should have stayed dead. Bringing him back just to give the running of the bulls ending some semblance of action after a lackadaisical middle that was constantly seeing QH getting nailed by one villain after another by pretty much brain dead problems, was honestly laughable. Instead, in the last episode the General nearly beats QH and CM to death and then is just nonchalantly arrested. And still the LB plot was not exposed so the reasoning is that there will be a season 2? Writer and director must have gotten drunk together.

Would I recommend it? I'm not sure to be honest. TJC did a great job as QH, so much so that I want to see him in other, better things. So if you're a fan of his, maybe you'll like this too. The beginning and end were the strongest even with the open-ended cliffhanger finale, the middle could have been totally cut and you probably wouldn't have missed much. So decide for yourselves.

Fun filled interesting mystery drama.

One of the wonderful thing about 'AYS' is that leads are very good especially Qin Huai (Tan Jianci). They wouldn't let you bored. Tjc & Rjc did nice. Tan Jianci acting & his expressions are handsome in portraying QH.♥️♥️

It ended too soon. Actions scenes are good. I feel like someone is still hiding something. Qin Huai is not fully safe. Ending like this leaves craving for more. Wish there could be more.

Its an interesting good funny & intense mystery drama, spreading safety message of internet. Enjoyed it. Hope, there will be a Conclusive part-2 of Are you safe, with JianCi back as Qin Huai. ♥️
