This drama was totally up my alley the second I read the summary. I love watching crime shows, even better with a little bit of romance. Wallace Huo was in it, which for me meant that it couldn’t be too bad, and it wasn’t. This is a huge budget drama, most definitely sponsored by Audi. Wallace plays Bo Jin Yan, a criminal psychologist with a traumatic past. He has never had any real romantic relationships and is extremely high maintenance but smart. Ma Si Chun plays Jian Yao, a college graduate who’s into linguistics (I think) but has impeccable observation skills and is very kind and smart.
Wallace does a pretty good job as Bo Jin Yan in this drama. He’s more interesting than Wallace’s previous role in Hua Qian Gu as Bai Zi Hua. Ma Si Chun is really pretty but I think she still has a way to go as an actress. Jian Yao lacks expression sometimes. The drama itself will sometimes feel like it’s split into two parts. Before Jian Yao and Bo Jin Yan were together, Jian Yao played a huge part in solving crimes. She was extremely clever and useful. Many times Jin Yan could rely on her to solve problems. She also had more of a flare to her personality. For some reason after she became a couple with Jin Yan, you see less of her actually helping out and instead just someone that’s there not doing much. It’s almost as if she has become weak. I can’t blame her too much cause her life is in danger after being with Jin Yan but still, it would have been nice to see them continue their compatible teamwork more. The only reason why it hasn’t really been a problem is probably because this is a thriller more than it is about romance.
Fu Zi Yu (Yin Zhen) on the other hand is the definition of competent. Yin Zhen isn’t the best actor but I think his portrayal of Zi Yu is convincing enough. Zi Yu is Jin Yan’s hacker assistant. He is multi talented and has everything prepared all the time for Jin Yan. I wish I had a partner or assistant like that. I hope to be able to see more of him with Yin Zi Qi, Jin Yan’s sister.
Will update, as more episodes come out! Stay tuned!
