K9 Cop Review

Title: K9 Cop
AKA: Police Dog Brother
Genre: Romance, Comedy, Family
Episodes: 19
Broadcast period: 2016-Feb to 2017-Feb
Cast: Linda Chung, Bosco Wong, Raymond Wong Ho Yin, Oscar Leung and Tracy Chu.

After losing both his parents at a young age CID officer Lai Yat Tsau (Bosco Wong) has been raising his three younger sisters on his own. The oldest is a kindergarten teacher, whose gullible nature and kindness is taken advantage of. The second oldest is completely different in the sense that she loves money, and originally started dating Fai Chung Lim (Raymond Wong Ho Yin), Yat Tsaus partner after she had found out he was rich. And lastly the youngest who is married and lives with her good-for-nothing husband with them.
Being a reckless person, Yat Tsau usually causes havoc wherever he goes while chasing criminals and crooks. And after a busting some drug dealers, Yat Tsau gets bitten by a watchdog called “Brother”, and is taken to the hospital. While getting treatment he meets Ma Chi Ho (Linda Chung). At first, she doesn’t tell him who she is, but soon he realizes that she is a veterinarian and is more interested in saving Brother, than him.
Chi Ho is an animal lover and works at the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conversion Department. She is known as being stubborn and quite blunt, much to others dismay. When she notices that Brother has the capabilities to become a police dog, she tries to make her case. AT the same time Yat Tsau is being transferred to the Police Dog unit, to get some discipline. And as fate has it, Brother becomes his partner…

Okay I might have spoiled a bit, but not all. Or at least I think so…
This drama I watched in one go, mainly because I am an animal lover, so anything with animals I will watch. That said, the drama as a whole is one of the good ones. Though acting and coordination is a bit lacking – also the editing could have been done better, the overall experience was okay. I like Mainland/Hong Kong series since they are quite a bit different than the rest (be it Taiwanese, Japanese and/or Korean). There is a lot of focus on interaction between characters, and the storyline is generally sub-plot. That is something you get used to though.
All in all, a good story and interesting character interaction.

☆☆☆½ / 3½ out of 5 stars
