Synopsis and Plot Summary

A mystery romance that follows a world-renowned criminal psychologist and his assistant as they crack each and every case no matter how bizarre and difficult.

Bo Jinyan (Wallace Huo) is a boss and mentor to Jian Yao (Sandra Ma), his interpreter and faithful assistant. Given his high IQ and low EQ, his peculiarity often leads to awkward and comical situations. Jinyan is the opposite to the sweet, warm and caring Jian Yao yet the two have a flourishing partnership as they investigate the most difficult cases with the help of friends Li Xunran (Wang Kai) and Fu Ziyu (Yin Zheng). To save Jian Yao, Jinyan must go against Xie Han (Zhang Luyi), a cold-blooded criminal mastermind from his past and confront the byproduct of his inner demons.
