ntv7 The Undercover 无间行者故事大纲:
|The Undercover 无间行者|
In conjunction with ntv7’s 15th year anniversary, there is no better way for the station to celebrate it other than with addressing their audience’ needs and venturing on a new endeavor by producing a one-of-a-kind drama series that is filled with thrill, action and drama. The Undercover – ntv7’s controversial, latest drama series that brings up the question of family, morality and loyalty will air starting 3rd July 2013, every Monday to Thursday, at 9.30pm to 10.30pm on ntv7, the Home of Feel Good.
This highly-anticipated series has a line-up of some of the most talented actors in the industry; Adrian Tan, Aenie Wong, Karena Teo, Ernest Chong, Alvin Wong, Johnson Low and Emily Tan. Playing the role of an aspiring cop-turned-informant Chong Yee, this is Adrian Tan’s first leading man role. Being the committed actor that he is, he would go to great lengths to ensure his performance would translate as realistic as possible, even to the extend where he accidentally injured himself which resulted to his left leg being temporarily paralysed and a brief loss of consciousness. The character Chong Yee has two conflicting sides, which led Adrian to face some emotional changes himself while continuously suffering from sleep deprivation that almost caused him to collapse.

Not only does this character is emotionally demanding, Adrian is also forced to strip off his typical, goody-two-shoes image that he has always portrayed be it as a performer, or even on TV, and wear a whole new persona that is darker in character. However, Adrian has done his research and vowed to give it his best as the drama requires him to develop strong relationships with a group of underground gangsters and jeopardise his relationship with his family, friends and his girlfriend.

Ernest Teo plays the role of a not very reputable gangster, Yi Feng whose life has been saved by Chong Yee on several occasions. Yi Feng ends up offering Chong Yee a job as a manager at a massage parlour owned by an underground criminal gang, Four Seas. According to Ernest, he found it challenging to endure such intense training to prepare himself for his fighting scenes in The Undercover. He’s had stitches on his head and because of his character’s loud-speaking, crude-talking attitude, Ernest was forced to film with a husky voice.
The young and beautiful, Aenie Wong has been given the honour to play the role of a cunning, manipulative yet divinely charming character, Ada, who is one of the most respectable members of the Four Seas gang. Aenie claims that she has always dreamt of embodying the strong, independent woman that knows no fear when it comes to accomplishing her ultimate goals. In The Undercover, her character Ada will have a kissing scene with Adrian where this will also be Adrian’s first kissing scene on television.
Playing the rich, kind-hearted lady, Hu Lin, Karena Teo has confessed that her experience shooting The Undercover has expanded her acting horizon where she had to re-enact a raping scene, imitate a drug addict’s behaviour and even sleep in a coffin. Emily Tan, who plays Hu Lin’s sister, Hui Jun, is rebellious by nature with a constant crave for new experiences. She eventually falls for Yi Feng’s cheeky charm and gets heavily influenced with the usage of drugs.
This action-packed drama series that is filled with suspense is unlike anything we have seen on ntv7. The whole plot revolves around a young man who aspires to be a police officer, Chong Yee. Upon hearing his beloved uncle’s suspicious death, he decides to migrate to Kuala Lumpur and investigate the truth which causes him to be expelled from the police academy that consequently sparks tension between Chong Yee and his father, played by Alvin Wong.
Chong Yee gets acquainted with Uncle Quan and his son Yi Feng. Not long after that he gets approached by a detective named Mohamad, who unveils that Chong Yee’s late uncle used to be an informant to the police for any criminal activity instigated by the Four Seas gang and the police are now speculating that there is a high chance that Chong Yee’s uncle was murdered.
Chong Yee is now more determined than ever to replace his late uncle’s previous role as a police informant to collect evidence from the Four Seas’ criminal activities and to find out if his late uncle was really murdered by the very people that he’s currently working for. His relationship with his father and his girlfriend Hui Lin has deteriorated tremendously ever since.
Things take turn for the worse when Chong Yee discovers that Yi Feng and the Four Seas gang have been distributing drugs while getting young girls to consume these drugs in order for them to control these girls. Ada, played by Aenie, is the person in-charged of the shipment of these drugs. Her cunning and malicious character has led her to become power-crazy which leads to her murdering Uncle Quan just to expand her power.
ntv7’s Manager of Brand Management Group, ntv7, Lai Cheah Yee says, “The Undercover is a local series that has all the right elements and ingredients when it comes to a criminal, investigative series. The production of such a daring series is also a statement that ntv7 would like to address to its viewers that we are a station that is constantly growing and always trying to deliver what is best for our viewers. With so much values that can be learned from the show, the station is also using this opportunity to unveil to the community out there that these are realities of life and to the younger generation who have intense emotional desires, The Undercover can serve as a warning sign to guide them through the right direction”.
“As this show is a commemoration initiative for ntv7’s 15th anniversary, we would like to thank one FM for supporting this show. We are also grateful to have such loyal viewers”, adds Cheah Yee.
