When her father is detained in connection with the disappearance of the prime minister, secret service agent Qiu Mo Yu sets out to clear her father's name. Her mission reunites her with Zhou Huai An, her boyfriend / colleague who returned from oversea to help her. Their search for the prime minister leads them to a trading post called “Dragon Gate,” a place where underworld dwellers do business and information is currency. Their presence in the area immediately attracts the attention of the flirtatious owner Jin Xiang Yu. She offers them full cooperate, but they can’t determine if her intention is to help or sabotage the investigation
Seeing the trailers, it really got me hyped for the premiere of this drama, but now having seen the drama itself I’m not sure I feel the same way. Dragon Gate is something very different from the current dramas that I am watching, though, coming to think of it, all of the dramas which I am currently watching are all of a different genre. Hehehehe! It is something that I haven’t seen from the TW drama industry since I started watching TW dramas, and I am glad for that. It is definitely good to have change of atmosphere from the love-centred dramas which Taiwan seems to continually dish out one after the other.
After watching the ep, my first thought was that it was very confusing! There is a lot that you have to get around before you can actually piece together what it happening and the different connections present. Watching it the first time around, I didn’t really understand what was going on. Only after watching it again for the second time (for recap purposes) that things started to make sense! However, despite doing so there was still quite a lot of scenes that I couldn’t get my head around, particularly with the last few scenes.
