Hayate no Gotoku! ~Binan shitsuji gao mamori shimasu~ (Japanese: ハヤテのごとく！ ～美男執事がお守りします～) (旋風管家/Xuan Feng Guan Jia) is a Taiwanese romantic comedy based on the original manga novel Hayate the Combat Butler by Kenjiro Hata.
Ling Qi Sa is an unlucky teenager who worked since childhood to make ends meet due to his parents' irresponsible behavior. On that Christmas day, he got fired from both his daytime and nighttime jobs, and also finds out that his parents were running from the mafia, leaving behind a 55,556,789 New Taiwan dollar debt on his shoulders. They even collected his last pay from his nighttime job's boss to escape. Whilst running away from the debt collectors, he ends up meeting San Qian Yuan Zhi. From his encounter with the mafia, they said that he didn't even have the guts to be a bad guy as he didn't dare pick up the knife and kill them (to relieve him of his debt). Hence, Qi Sa thought that since being a filial son and good student didn't help him at all, he should just be a bad guy and and kidnap a rich heir/heiress and demand ransom to pay off his debts. However, due to some misunderstandings, he ended up saving Xiao Zhi from a few thugs who tried to pick her up. Xiao Zhi thought that he was confessing as Qi Sa said that he needed her (literally) when in actual fact he meant that he needed her to agree to him kidnapping her. However, as he went to call Xiao Zhi's family to demand ransom, he backed out at the last moment. During the process, kidnappers came and captured Xiao Zhi while Qi Sa was away making the call. Qi Sa then risked his life to save her, and Xiao Zhi ended up hiring him as her butler, and slowly fell in love with him; not always noticing how much he influenced her and how she overcame many of her fears with his help.
Aside from performing his ordinary duties as a butler, Qi Sa must fight to protect Xiao Zhi from harm - a difficult task since her life is always in danger as she is the target of other individuals coveting her family's fortune - and sometimes deal with some extravagant requests from her, oblivious to Xiao Zhi's true feelings for him. In the later story, Qi Sa has to deal with other issues that come his way, many of which ends up with some comedic scenes, also romantic ones where Qi Sa gave encouragement to Xiao Zhi about her dream of drawing manga, and his unknowing care for her along with his unbending loyalty towards her. Qi Sa's debt was eventually paid by Xiao Zhi, and he vows to serve her with his life. As the story progresses, Qi Sa also had had to deal with some of his past, his minor crush for Xiao Zhi's housekeeper (who is somewhat Xiao Zhi's manager and friend), and of course, competition with other guys who were interested in Xiao Zhi - some of which have their own charm.
But, his bright and honest personality, added on with a dash of charm and a sincere and caring heart, would no doubt completely take over the hearts of viewers. Watch to find out more~
