The Dance of the Storm 风暴舞 is a 45-episode Chinese drama that tells of a man who discovers that the people he is working for have ties to some very dangerous organizations.
It stars William Chan (Age of Legends), Guli Nazha (Fighter of the Destiny), Cecilia Song Yan Fei (Where the Lost Ones Go), Damon Guo Jia Hao (Our Youth), Simon Yam (The Great Adventurer Wesley), Jiang Wenli (The Flowers and Distant Place), Qin Ming Yue and Zhang Song.
A man who has been framed and goes on the run sounds just like the kind of intense, adrenaline-pumping series that would be perfect for William Chan.
Li Junjie (William Chan) is the orphaned son of two scientists who died in an accident. With no one to take him in and his parents branded as national traitors, the young Li Junjie is sent to the orphanage where he becomes friends with Shi Yunhao (Guo Jiahao). Both are recruited to join an information security company and also fall for the same girl, Zhou Zixuan (Guli Nazha). Things go terribly wrong after Li Junjie discovers underhanded dealings within the company. He is framed for a crime he didn’t commit and becomes determined to clear his name.
I love criminal investigative dramas and long for one that’s unpredictable in spinning the story. This is something I have yet to see in Chinese dramas. Granted I haven’t watched that many to judge it fairly, but I find that most Chinese dramas are predictable in their ending.
The cinematography does look amazing and it gives you all the feels. The set looks really well thought out and it kind of reminds me of the American show, CSI Cyber.
