Lui Fei-hap (Niki Chow), known as "Lui Hap", is a thirty-one-year-old Emergency Unit sergeant of the Hong Kong Police Force, who has been let down in love many times, so when she finds her perfect man (Vincent Wong), she jumps at the opportunity, never suspecting that he is a drug baron until she arrests him. To make things worse, their relationship hits the headlines when tabloid reporter Gordon Lam (Michael Tse), known as A1, stumbles upon it while following another story. Lui Hap's and A1's paths continue to cross when pursuing duties and stories, sometimes cooperating and sometimes as enemies, sometimes saving the other and at other times the target of each other's practical jokes. Before long, Lui Hap finds herself falling in love with new recruit Wong Tze-tsuen (Matthew Ko), only for A1 to stand in her way again. Pushed to her limits both at work and in love, Lui Hap has no choice but to fight back in the name of love. ( source)

1. The King's Face

Starring Seo In Guk , Shin Sung Rok and Jo Yoon Hee

Though Crown Prince Kwanghae (Seo In Gook) is the son of a concubine and has always had the question of birthright looming over his head, he is eventually deemed the approved successor to the throne. But shortly after his father's passing, the royal edict is destroyed, giving the Northern faction the opportunity to contest his rule. Without any piece of evidence that can confirm his legitimacy, Prince Kwanghae must rely on the only thing that connects him to the royal bloodline: his own face. When the Crown Prince's claim to the throne is threatened, he must rely on physiognomy — face reading — to foretell his future and prove that he is the one true king.
