YAY more dramas with Wang Kai. Wang Zi Wen from Ode to Joy is also with him in here. I’ve been looking forward to this for a really long time. It was really unexpected. I was under the impression that it would be a more conventional romance drama but it’s actually more of a crime drama packed with suspense and excitement. It’s definitely a big budget protection with a lot of attention to detail in most of the scenes. Wang Kai’s role as Ji Bai is very him. Wang Zi Wen on the other hand was totally different from her character in her previous drama but still very likable.
Wang Kai plays Ji Bai, a very strict and serious detective who’s very righteous and highly praised by all of those around him. Wang Zi Wen is Xu Xu, a seemingly meek woman who is incredibly smart and a highly skilled psychologist who can read people better than anyone else. Xu Xu ends up in Ji Bai’s team much to his dismay. At first he didn’t want her on his team because she didn’t pass the physical test for cops, she was too weak. However quickly he realizes how smart she is after she helps solve a kidnapping case and willingly works with her with the condition that she must past the physical exam in three months if she wants to stay.
If you’re looking for a lot of romance, it’s not really in here. Ji Bai and Xu Xu’s relationship is pretty slow. She doesn’t really know what it’s like to be in love and his focus is heavily on the crimes he’s solving, especially when one of them hits close to home and his good friend Ye Zi Xi (Zhao Yuan Yuan) is murdered. Ji Bai works with Xu Xu to solve this case and they grow closer. He begins to notice how interesting and unusual she is. Xu Xu has an affinity for him but doesn’t really realize it as she has no experience in this type of thing.
Interestingly enough, my favorite parts of the drama aren’t necessarily the ones with Ji Bai in it but probably more so the times when Xu Xu solves something. It’s really interesting to hear her logic and how she is able to make accurate judgements and predictions of situations and people. She seems so quiet and timid at first but that’s because she uses her energy observing others and learning about others, making it easy for her to say the right things and make the right decisions.
Anyway I’ve been really enjoying this drama and can’t wait for more to come!!!
