Synopsis from Chinesedrama.info:
Hong Kong drug trafficker Liu Haoyu colludes with Lin Yaodong (Wang Jinsong) from Guangdong to build an underground drug manufacturing facility in the Chinese province. During one of his missions, anti-drug police enforcer Li Fei inadvertently discovers the truth behind the covert operation. Despite many obstacles from those in power who work behind the scenes to protect the drug ring, he and partner Song Yang launch a full investigation. Meanwhile, Li Fei's father Li Weimin also heads up an operation as the anti-drug chief in an effort to wipe out the criminal syndicate.

This seems perfect for drama fans who are craving for some action. It mirrors one of the most prevalent problems in many countries, drug abuse, and trafficking. We also get to see a glimpse of the workings of the Chinese government as well as corruption and politics interweaving with crime syndicates. Although the female lead is not very well-known, the rest of the major cast are veteran actors. Most importantly, we got to see Huang Jingyu in uniform again following the hit war movie Operation Red Sea!

Release Date: TBA
