The Infernal Affairs fangirl inside of me is yelling YES! (But I doubt anything of its genera will ever surpass Infernal Affairs trilogy. Oh hail the subtlety, the intensity, the complexity, and Hollywood’s failure to reproduce it to the same level of excellency.)
On the other hand, I hear noisy booing and hooting at the back of my head each time I summon up the remembrance that this is a Taiwanese Drama. (Yes, I am entitled to my own prejudice, despite the number of T-Dramas I actually recap, as ironic as that sounds.) Since T-Dramas never fail to impress me with its utter lack of depth and amazingly abundant, alliteration-worth of asinine-ness, I am a little skeptical.
This is either going to be one of a kind or one of its kind. We’ll see, summer of 2009… (What? Yeah.)
A little background information: the production team and director had the idea for this drama as early as five years ago. Unfortunately at the time, the team felt that they were not sufficiently equipped to fully invest into this ambitious project and subsequently, produced Mars and The Hospital instead.
