Father and son will risk their lives to fight against a drug syndicate in the Chinese cop drama, The Thunder 破冰行动. The 48-episode drama is adapted based on true events and was filmed in collaboration with the Public Security Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security and the Public Security Department of Guangdong.
Playing opposite him is Li Mozhi as the female lead, Chen Ke, a nurse working at a local hospital.
Wu Gang plays the role of Li Weimin, Li Fei’s adoptive father and deputy chief of the anti-drug bureau who supports his investigation.
Meanwhile, Simon Yam stars as the protagonist’s biological father, Zhao Jialiang, an undercover police officer who infiltrated the drug syndicate three years prior.
Taking the role of criminal mastermind Li Yaodong is Wang Jinsong who operates a drug manufacturing facility.
This seems perfect for drama fans who are craving for some action. It mirrors one of the most prevalent problems in many countries, drug abuse, and trafficking. We also get to see a glimpse of the workings of the Chinese government as well as corruption and politics interweaving with crime syndicates. Although the female lead is not very well-known, the rest of the major cast are veteran actors. Most importantly, we got to see Huang Jingyu in uniform again following the hit war movie Operation Red Sea!
