With his excellent fire-fighting skills and extensive fire-fighting experience, Lin Luxiao is the Chief of the Special Duty Station in Beixun.

By chance, he was chosen to be an instructor for a reality show that aims to educate people about firefighting.

During the program, Lin Luxiao meets Nan Chu, a dancer whom he saved from a fire many years ago.

Nan Chu is attracted to Lin, but Lin is reluctant to approach her because he is aware of the dangers of his profession.

A new generation of young and brave firefighters, such as Shao Yixing and Qin Shiquan, are emerging, and Lou Minye, who has brought back advanced equipment and technology from abroad, has also returned to the fire brigade.

The three generations of firefighters, old, middle-aged, and young, have worked together in fire, earthquake, and aerial rescue and other disaster rescues, raising the level of fire safety in Beixun City to a new level.

Nan Chu and Lin Luxiao are also getting to know each other better. Faced with the most dangerous forest fire, Lin and his teammates still choose to go against the fire.

    Bright Eyes in the Dark - Great casting, Strong script

    The opening of "Bright Eyes in the Dark" is incredibly impactful, with a strong sense of being on the scene. This earthquake disaster documentary is not at all exaggerated. The exhaustion, anxiety, and oppressive atmosphere of the firefighters on the ruins are deeply moving. Whether it's the pitiable helplessness of the disaster victims or Lin Luxiao and his team's determined efforts in bare-handed rescue, every scene is heart-wrenching. Once again, salute to the brave and fearless firefighters!

    The casting of "Bright Eyes in the Dark" is spot-on. It feels like Johnny Huang Jingyu's acting is particularly well-suited to his real-life personality. His performance is relaxed, not too tense. He seems to be playing himself in every role, but the fact that it never feels out of place is truly remarkable.

    Zhang Jingyi and Huang Jingyu make for a much more comfortable and appealing pair compared to the previous Wiliam Chan Chen Wei and Zhang Ruonan, Yang Yang and Wang Churan.
