In classic spy war dramas, female characters can always become a landscape that is difficult to ignore, firmly grabbing the audience's attention.
For example, the "group of wives" in "Lurking".
Several wives from Tianjin Station gathered together when they had nothing to do, chattering and playing cards.
In the middle of your words, you opened up a "second battlefield" on the mahjong table.
In "The Pretender", Yu Manli, played by Song Yi, spent a candlelight night in the cave room and unloaded three bandits into eight pieces.
That bloody smile lingers in the hearts of many fans.
In "Kite", Lin Tao, played by Li Xiaoran, is like a heavenly person, but he is red-faced.
Whether she and Zheng Yaoxian have love or not is also difficult for many people to let go so far.
Even in the modern spy war drama "Opponent", Tan Zhuo's action of brushing his teeth made the audience have a trace of empathy for "spies" and a little curiosity about their lives.
Why can female characters in spy war dramas have so many highlights?
On the one hand, women are the "spice" of spy warfare.
In the rapidly changing situation, female characters can not only add a touch of color to spy warfare, but also paint the genre of spy warfare with a layer of sexiness.
Women, on the other hand, have their own tragic core.
Most of the female characters in spy war dramas have unpredictable fates, and many times they can't help themselves.
Therefore, from a certain point of view, the portrayal of female characters can greatly expand the depth of spy war dramas.
In the recent hit spy war drama "Thin Ice", there are five such female characters.
Each of them has its own characteristics, and once they appear, they are unforgettable.
Even, they represent different "colors" in the play.
It is precisely because of the intersection of these female characters that the underground battlefield where the tip of the knife licks blood has more color.
The first, the black "Qiu Yingxia"
Why use "black" to describe Qiu Yingxia?
This is because, from the beginning of her appearance, she has two characteristics that perfectly fit the atmosphere expected by the audience in a spy war drama.
The first is the killing.
Qiu Yingxia is the chief of the military unification section and one of the female leaders with the highest IQ in the military unification.
She is well versed in the way of interrogation, good at psychological warfare, and the phrase "the soldering iron will be cold if it is not put back", its cruelty and viciousness, can make people gasp.
Qiu Yingxia's dress is also our impression of the iron lady unique to the military agents.
Suit and leather boots trench coat, hair high coiled, sharp eyes, ask questions to the point, as if every time you say a word, you will kill someone.
Under Wu Yue's performance, Qiu Yingxia does not have a trace of femininity, and what we see is as if it is an interrogation machine, a femme fatale.
Qiu Yingxia's earliest appearance also set the tone for "Thin Ice".
The second is solemnity.
With the development of the plot, we see more possibilities in Qiu Yingxia.
Although her dress has always been a "man's mother", her eyebrows have always been full of a sense of story, and her eyes have been so sharp that others can't help but dodge when they see it.
But she also had a beautiful love and a lofty ideal of saving people from fire and water.
So, when she discovered another faith that could fulfill her ideals, she wavered.
She burned the telegram revealing Chen Shao's hidden identity and spared the life of her lover Secretary Ji, who had gone against her.
In the later plot, we see more complexity of human nature from Qiu Yingxia.
She is no longer just a female military agent, but has become a female warrior with feelings and righteousness, ideals and ambitions, and has a heart and strategy.
Therefore, when she died on the shoulders of her lover because she saved people, that solemn feeling made "Thin Ice" solemn.
It also allows us to see that an idealist, in that era, was magnificent but could not love the destination.
The second, the pink "Gu Manli"
Unlike Qiu Yingxia, when Gu Manli appeared, she had a temperament that was completely inconsistent with spy war dramas.
She is a nurse in the medical and nursing department of the Wang puppet government security bureau.
Dressed in a white nurse's suit, it looks out of place in the gloomy atmosphere of the prison.
In addition, this character is gentle and virtuous to people, and speaks softly and delicately, making people feel like a spring breeze.
So much so that when Gu Manli just appeared, everyone thought that this would be a vase character.
But no one thought that she was an undercover "flying sky" installed by our party.
And Gu Manli played a decisive role in two things.
First of all, she used her status as a nurse to go to the prison to apply fake death medicine to Lü Bu, a dying military commander, so that she had a chance to rescue him.
Secondly, she was caught because of an accident, and under the torture of the devil, she did not reveal the slightest party secret.
Even in such extreme cases, she can use her wisdom to pass on information.
From Gu Manli, we see a chaste and unyielding, but gentle as a troubled woman.
She could have married a son-in-law brother with her beautiful appearance, but in this life, she chose a difficult path.
Gu Manli's gentleness on the outside, like pink bubbles, can concentrate the heart of every man, but her inner chastity is far beyond the men around her, appearing independent and stubborn.
In "Thin Ice", the love line between Gu Manli and Zhou Zuo is also the emotional line that moves Pi Ge the most.
Even though she was tortured to death, Gu Manli still used a warm tone to persuade Zhou Zuo to change his faith, so that our camp had another fighter.
Therefore, when she was afraid that her comrades would sacrifice to save her, she resolutely chose to end her life, which also made Gu Manli's image instantly tall.
The strong contrast between her temperament and spirit also has a shocking power.
The third, the blue "Wu Ruonan"
Also a female character, Wu Ruonan is completely different from the first two.
Wu Ruonan was the illegitimate daughter of a general.
She was not recognized by her father for a long time, and in order not to be marginalized by her family, she became an agent by her own efforts.
Wu Ruonan's appearance was with a kind of sassiness and competence.
Her temperament is not as gloomy as Qiu Yingxia, but it exudes a girlish exuberance.
She is a bit of a young lady temper, and she will be coquettish and cute at every turn.
But on the road of secret agent and just happened to fall in love with Chen Shao, Wu Ruonan is destined to be a tragic character.
English blue has the meaning of sadness, and it is appropriate to use blue to represent Wu Ruonan.
After going to Shanghai, Wu Ruonan disguised herself as a dancer.
Her temperament has also become more mature and charming from the sassy at the beginning.
But it was from this point that she gradually became a tragic character.
During an interrogation, Wu Ruonan was held to the head by a Japanese officer Miyamoto with a gun and asked to strip for examination.
The female character undressing will have caused a great sensory and psychological impact on the audience, and the scene of Li Bingbing stripping in "The Wind" is still in the future.
But in "Thin Ice", this "scale" scene fell on Wu Ruonan.
When Wu Ruonan, played by Chen Xiaoling, was forced to remove his clothes one by one, the strong tragic color of the characters also began to become uncomfortable.
She had tears in her eyes, but she never let the tears flow, and then cooperated with the Japanese to complete this humiliating physical examination.
It was not until after the Japanese left that there were two lines of tears on their faces.
These two lines of tears also make the tragic color of the characters deeper.
This time the examination is because of her identity, Chen Shao's lover.
Originally, Wu Ruonan loved Chen Shao, but on the other hand, Chen Shao's heart had already been given to Yu Chunyang.
Humiliated by outsiders, her lover left her again, and the grievances on Wu Ruonan's body can be felt by us across the screen.
From a small point of view, the Japanese can freely strip off the clothes of the co-workers' wives for search, which reflects the perverted cruelty and unscrupulous means of the Japanese.
From a big point of view, the daughter of a general cannot even keep a dress and a lover, which shows how unbearable the fate of ordinary people will be in troubled times.
This also makes Wu Ruonan, a female image, while adding a layer of scale to the spy war drama, the intention of the play itself is also raised by a higher level.
The fourth type, the red "Yuchun sheep"
Yu Chunyang, played by Chen Yuqi, is the first heroine of "Thin Ice" and the only female character that can be represented by the color red.
To say that she is red, the first meaning, is her character.
Yu Chunyang, who opened up, entered the revolution for the first time and grinned.
The first time I went on a mission, before I could go far, I lost the intelligence, and it was lost to extremely dangerous military agents.
Although it was the stage of cooperation between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party in resisting Japan, this mistake, which happened to an agent, was fatal.
Immediately after, she made a second mistake, preparing to leave a letter and act on her own to recapture the intelligence.
Although Yu Chunyang is fledgling and immature, she has always had a fiery passion, especially for secret service work and revolutionary missions.
There are many interesting episodes and interactions between her and her superior, Xu Haichen, her adoptive father, which make us feel the young revolutionary vitality of Yu Chunyang.
The second meaning is her identity.
Yu Chunyang was originally an agent of our party, and his identity has not changed from beginning to end.
It's just that with the development of the plot and the richness of her experience, she has become more and more mature and qualified.
When the hotel is in danger, she can be in the same room with the "love enemy" calmly, although the eyes of the two can already explain the problem, but compared to the previous frizz, this is already a mature performance.
After Qiu Yingxia was shot, it was Yu Chunyang who rushed to the scene as soon as possible, deceived the Japanese spies with a black ball, and rescued Qiu Yingxia.
The completion of a series of important tasks made the red color on Yu Chunyang's body more and more enthusiastic.
This blazing red color also infected Chen Shao, making him eventually a staunch communist.
And Yu Chunyang is his introduction to the party.
The red gene on Yu Chunyang's body is the background color of the entire drama, the male protagonist has changed his faith because of her influence, and she is also using her own faith to constantly illuminate the people around her.
Yu Chunyang is the most effective female character in the entire "Thin Ice".
Her youth represents the youth of the revolution, her enthusiasm represents the enthusiasm of the revolutionaries at that time, and her growth also represents the growth of all agents.
The fifth, the white "Yukako"
Yujiako, played by Zhao Yutong, is the purest character in the entire "Thin Ice".
Put it in the color map, the best representative of her is white.
Yukako is the daughter of Yujiro Ida and the niece of the villain Yutaro Ida in the play.
Yutaro Ida seems to be ruthless, but he has a preference for Yukako, saying that she is Idada's weakness, which is no exaggeration.
Yukako is simple by nature, does not like war, and looks pure and cute, like a soft and cute little white rabbit.
And setting up such a girl role, the main creator itself, also has deeper considerations.
On the one hand, she has a functional role.
In the play, Yu Chunyang's disguised identity happens to be by Yoshiko's teacher, and she can use Yoshiko to approach Ida to obtain secrets about uranium mines.
And when Chen Asa was lurking as Asai, he also came into contact with Yukako.
This allows the male and female protagonists to intersect in this little girl.
There are many scenes in the play, and the three make a fuss together, just like a family.
When Yujiako was tied to the bomb, it was also Chen Qian who helped to dismantle it.
To a certain extent, Chen Shao played the role of Yukako's father, giving him love that his father did not give.
On the other hand, there is a deeper meaning in her.
Yujiako was born to an officer of the Japanese army that invaded China, but she preferred the land of China, pure and kind, and harmless to humans and animals.
This is not to whitewash the Japanese army, but the main creator is telling us from the side that ordinary people involved in this war are innocent, even among the Japanese, there will be peace-loving, simple and kind people.
In the original work, Yukako does not end well.
When she escaped from the well, she wanted to escape with Chen Qian, and also wanted to follow the well, and finally died under the guns of her own people, and her life fell.
Such an innocent little girl, dying in this way, is also full of strength and stamina.
The harm that war has brought to China and the wounds to the innocent cannot be repaired, and Yukako, who is as pure as snow, cannot escape the doom brought by war.
The more cute and beautiful the person, the more shocking it is when they die.
This is another meaning of "white", to a certain extent, white also represents the passing of life.
Looking at the five female characters in "Thin Ice", they have different characteristics, different dresses, different personalities, different roles, and even their influences in the play are very different.
Some of them are gentle and beautiful, some are capable and free, some are enthusiastic as fire, and some are calm and witty.
But it is also this group of female characters that constitute the most unique "sexy" in the spy war drama "Thin Ice".
Their sexiness, which blossomed in "Thin Ice", affected every audience.
At present, "Thin Ice" has been broadcast so far, the number of views on the whole network has exceeded 1.4 billion, and it has won the first place in Mango TV ratings for 22 consecutive days.
Friends who like it, hurry up and chase it.
