Head Above Water 守卫者-浮出水面 is a 30-episode Chinese spy drama starring Jin Dong (The First Half of My Life) and Han Yuqin. I don’t know if anyone’s keeping count but this makes Jin Dong’s fifth drama throughout the course of the year where he’s been a surgeon, a businessman, a loving father and now, a spy. I mean talk about an actor with incredible range.
The story revolves around Unit 301, a special facility involved with the development of submarines. Highly-sensitive classified information gets leaked during a test run and the Defense Department is brought in to crack the case in 60 days, which then brings together our two strong-headed heroes.
He is a brilliant detective with a bad reputation and his partner is a tough lady detective who does not approve of his methods. Their initial distrust for each other ought to bring in some lighter moments in what seems to be a dark suspense thriller (that’s so dark I literally cannot see the stills clearly).
