Under the Power 锦衣之下 is a 50-episode Chinese drama based on a novel by Lan Se Shi 蓝色狮 that follows the jinyiwei (锦衣卫), an organization that goes by many names in Chinese history and modern pop culture to be known as the Ming Dynasty secret police, the broacade-clad guards and the embroidered uniform guards.
Allen Ren Jialun (Autumn Cicadas) plays the cold and ruthless hero to Tan Songyun’s (My Mr. Mermaid) bubbly heroine. Yuan Jinxia is a female detective from Liu Shan Men. While investigating a case, she gets into a feud with Lu Yi who is a member of the jinyiwei.
Thinking that their paths will never cross again, they are brought together once again by circumstance. The imperial funds have gone missing and Jinxia is sent to help Lu Yi recover the money.
