A beautiful and tragic story about parents and children

Lost in The Shadows is an exciting thriller, full of mysteries and hooks that holds the viewer's attention. But beyond the crimes, it is a story with many feelings, mainly the very strong pain of parents looking for their missing children.

Rong Zi Shan has been exceptional in her role since the first episode. The way Xiao Qi connects with Meizhen and Wang Shitu is beautiful, he becomes a real son to them, he is not just filling a hole in their hearts.

Zhang Song Wen is also perfect in his role as police officer Wang, he made me cry a few times. His search for his son Doudou is painful to watch until the last episode, and I believe it will continue to hurt my memory.

The direction is very good, it doesn't let the story lose its pace, all the episodes have a lot of emotion. The construction of the flashbacks is charming, the use of colors is very good. Great song choices that go well with the story and scenes, Chinese dramas always make good use of the soundtrack. The script brings many plot twists, makes us create theories and bite our nails with anxiety. Bian Jie's story changed several times, I almost freaked out wanting to know the truth straight away. It's been a while since I've been so excited about a drama like this.

I gave the story a score of 9 instead of 10 because I felt that some characters were left behind in the story, without as much involvement as they seemed to have. I think the child cast could have been used more and Xiao Qi's past explored more. But these are just details that do not detract from the work as a whole, which is magnificent.

Another great collaboration between Rong Zi Shan & Zhang Song Wen

This drama is definitely not as same level as Bad kids, but the collaboration of Rong Zi Shan & Zhang Song Wen is just so good.
If you enjoy dramas such as:
Bad Kids, The Disappearing Child, Homesick.
You'll want to watch this one.

Story pacing is very good. Being 16 short episodes, there weren't any filler episodes.
Likeable lead characters and good story overall.

Expect the annoying bold letters (Yellow in this one) absolutely spelling out everyone's outcomes, but that's how censorship goes.
