Trapped

A mysterious shooting leaves a police officer and the head of the Tianmeng crime syndicate dead. Four years later, police investigator Meng Shao Fei (Jake Hsu) is determined to hunt down Tang Yi (Chris Wu), the sole survivor of the fateful shooting – and now the head of the Tianmeng gang. Tang Yi is also hunting for answers but wants his own form of justice. He seems to want to exact his choice of punishment on the killer... although he appears to be hiding a dark secret. Is Tang Yi trying to protect someone?

Meng Shao Fei and Tang Yi become entangled in a deadly game of wits – a game that becomes all the more complicated after Tangy Yi baits a love trap for Meng Shao Fei.[3]

Make Our Days Count

At first glance, high schoolers Xiang Hao Ting (Song Wei En) and Yu Xi Gu (Huang Juan Zhi) appear to be polar opposites: While Xiang Hao Ting is an outgoing, hot-headed extravert and some-time bully, Yu Xi Gu prefers to keep a low profile and focus on his schoolwork.

They seem bound for totally different futures – the bookish Yu Xi Gu looks destined for academic success, while life is just a long popularity contest for Xiang Hao Ting. But a quirk of fate – and a crucial intervention by a female schoolmate – results in the two young men's paths crossing.

But there is more to both young men than first meets the eye. Xiang Hao Ting was not always this way. He started out as a perfect student until he discovered the joys of going off the rails.

And Yu Xi Gu has a reason for being so aloof and studious: His parents died in a traffic accident while he was younger, and he is being fostered by his aunt. As such, he works hard to get good grades in an effort to win a scholarship and ease the financial burden on his relatives.

Yu Xi Gu also works part-time at a convenience store, where his manager Liu Zhi Gang (Zhang Han Yuan) has developed a crush on a man he has met at the gym.

Back at school, meanwhile, Yu Xi Gu and Xiang Hao Ting find themselves drawn together, and passions ignite. The former notices that he has the unique ability to bring Xiang Hao Ting out of his shell – and becomes intent on melting his cold-as-ice exterior.

What will happen when their two worlds collide? And can love be the catalyst that helps bring these two unlikely students together – as their high school days draw to a close?[4]
