When he goes to Hong Kong to help take care of his father's funeral, his father's friend gets him to stay in Hong Kong as a cop. Because he was shot in the head, a bullet fragment remained in his brain after surgery, which stimulated some part of the brain cells to continually expand. Although this caused him to become smarter, he also became selfish. His personality changed, and he became cruel and ruthless in his actions; fortunately, his conscience helps him turn back. Later, he gets another head injury after falling from a church, so he gets surgery again; after removing the fragment, he miraculously does not die, but changes back to his previous personality. He goes from being a simple and honest village guy to a clever yet selfish, unlikable person, and then a noble and righteous detective who has ideals when he does things.

He was originally brain dead, but because Wayne's brain cells shifted over, this caused his brain to miraculously become active again. However, his personality went from good to bad. In the middle, because of some magical change in the brain, he and Wayne will switch characters. He is a villain.

Personal Note: Wayne's wig in here looks even worse than Raymond Wong's in "Coastline"! 囧!
Liked the style of the series in the Sales clip...too bad the actual series will not be a comedy anymore.
Role-switching again?! ("House of Harmony and Vengeance", "Wish and Switch", "Queens of Diamonds and Hearts"....)
Apparently, when the police number on one's shoulder is red, it means that the officer is proficient in English. There are also many English speakers in here, so guessing that a lot of English will be used in the series. :)
