The series is set in China during the Ming dynasty. Zhu Wushi, the uncle of the reigning Emperor, has been ordered by the previous emperor to establish a secret service called "Dragon Defending Mountain Manor" to protect the monarchy. Zhu, who is nicknamed "Tiedan Shenhou" has four elite secret agents serving under him. They are known by their codenames: "Heaven Number One", "Earth Number One", "Mysterious Number One", and "Yellow Number One". The Dragon Defending Mountain Manor has an ongoing rivalry with the Eastern Depot, another government spy agency led by the eunuch Cao Zhengchun. The Emperor knows that Zhu Wushi and Cao Zhengchun are equally influential in court politics and has been trying to use both of them to balance against each other. The four agents have to assist Zhu Wushi in curbing Cao Zhengchun's power, preserve the secret service's position in the imperial court, and defend the Emperor from internal and external threats.

Wallace is the best in this series
14 November 2005 | by chunliangpanSee all my reviews

This series is quite good, and although there are some pitfalls in the plot, it doesn't damage the overall excellence. The action scenes were superb. Roger Kwok and Tammy Chen made an excellent funny couple. My highest respect goes to Wallace Huo because of his captivating acting. In this series his performance was so sophisticated and touching that almost overwhelmed all other actors in the series. How can one imagine that a man with a cherubic face like him can blend nicely so many different emotions into one characters that was very reticent? This series was a huge breakthrough for Wallace! I love to see the wonderful chemistry between Wallace and Michelle Yip. The theme song "Your First" by Wallace is also very good. Highly Recommended!!
