Looks like the theme for this month is republican series!

Synopsis from Qiyi: In the Name of the Brother (哈尔滨一九四四) is set in Harbin under the puppet Manchukuo regime in 1944, the story follows Song Zhuowen (played by Qin Hao), an underground party member disguised as a railway police officer, who is mistakenly identified by the head of the spy department, Guan Xue (played by Yang Mi), as her lifesaver—actually Zhuowen’s long-lost twin brother, Song Zhuowu (also played by Qin Hao). To uncover the ultimate mission of Kwantung Army officer Asano Daigo (played by Koji Yano) in Harbin, Zhuowen decides to use Guan Xue to infiltrate the spy department, but the sudden appearance of Zhuowu plunges him into unexpected trouble. Guan Xue is cold-blooded and suspicious, cruel and ruthless, while Zhuowu is impulsive by nature, often unintentionally sabotaging Zhuowen’s operations. Only through the arrangements of their superiors do the brothers cooperate and protect each other, avoiding the overt and covert struggles among their colleagues in the spy department, and eventually gaining the trust of Guan Xue and the Japanese officials. Within this short year, the underground party members endure hardships to uncover and stop a secret operation conspired by the Japanese army and the Soviet Union, root out the puppet Manchukuo spies within their party, and welcome the final victory of the war.
