How is it so far?  I am afraid I can't help but to compare it to DOTS when/if I start this lol

thank heavens you replied! I thought I was all alone on this thread. well, to be frank the first thought I had was "My dad is going to love this" because 1) It's like DOTS and 2) It's got a lot more action than You are my Hero (as the ML is really a jujitsu pro in real life and very brawny (he is so bulky compared with idol actors), also the scenes have a lot more fighting). When I watch a show, I tend to evaluate if it's something my dad will like, then I will recommend him to watch it. LOL

 

Character wise, to be frank, I don't like the looks of the ML, but he kinda grows on me, he's gruff on the outside, curt and feels very strongly about his stand of things. But he's smart, perceptive and he's got great ideals and values that he wants to protect. And by E11/12 I can tell he's subtly waiting for the FL to come around to realise her feelings for him. I like how he's doing little things for her (it's like a big teddy bear, sort of) and how he's protecting her in his own way. He's not running away from his own feelings, he doesn't have low self-esteem and think he's not good enough for her or that his job is too dangerous for her (at least not yet, anyway).

As for the FL, I wish she would be a lot less reactive and think first before blurting things out and exploding (I think her explosive tendencies are just the way her character is written. - so I'll bear with it.) . But she's got great work ethics, really cares about her patients and when she sets her mind to it, she really tries to find ways to solve her patient's medical conditions, despite only being a resident at the hospital. (I chanced upon a Chinese forum, and they don't think much of either characters (they were questioning if the characters are still valid in this day and age, so stereotypical, and insulting of audiences' intellect today?). Also, the comment is that the actress portraying the FL is over-acting, I suppose that's her style but I saw a BTS and the way she talks in real life is like that, so I think it's just her, very dynamic in person. The teenage love interest is a bit of an enigma, I am not sure if it's the acting/the directing/ the character but I can't quite tell if he really still has some affections for the FL or he's doing his job and trying to worm his way into her life.

 

But, there's a certain charm to the show and I can't help but wait for the next few episodes. Judging by the trailers, the usual suspects in the plot are going to follow:

Spoiler

The FL is going to be kidnapped (just like DOTS)

The ML is going to be severely injured (just like DOTS)

And of course they do end up together (just like DOTS)

 

I am wondering though what becomes of the 2nd ML, the teenage love interest and her best friend

Do let me know if you decide to watch. Marcus here (youtuber) says that this drama is quite hot (but he didn't say if this was the sentiments among local China or online viewers, ok my bad I saw the previous episode of his commentary and it's No4 on the Top 10 list, based on view counts on iQiyi, Youku and Tencent, social media discussions and Baidu searches)

I'm not watching the drama at all but I peek at follow viewcounts, this drama is doing very well despite its online reviews on the negative side (cursory look on weibo, douban and bilibili). There are lot of people that don't look at those three sites, and don't mind the old tropes or over the top plot elements (that beginning that chased away half of its audience...) and plenty of hit dramas have mixed reviews. Aside from the complaints, I heard the action is very good, because the production team is known for filming this kind of dramas.

 

This drama's trajectory looks like it'll be pretty good. For an iqiyi exclusive, it'll likely end up second to My Heroic Husband, unless The Rebel do better. The Rebel is doing fine tv rating wise, but little below everyone's expectation in view count so far. The numbers for all platforms and stations have been all around abysmal this year to be honest, MHH the current view count king isn't even unanimously hit drama. (cnetizens have very high standards for hit drama, the last one people will reluctant agreed to is Joy of Life, all the other dramas after have naysayers that argue this or that show it's not a hit)

@skibbies thanks for your input! I watched MHH too and liked how smart the ML was (the ending hints at a continuation and I heard somewhere that there are rumours of a season 2). As for this drama, you are right, the action is really good, all the more reason I am recommending it to my dad (LOL).

 

I saw that it's doing pretty well on a youtuber channel, and the commentor of that channel projects that it will be the top web drama this week or so. It's pretty entertaining on its own right and the ML and FL hold their own weight in terms of chemistry. I read on another forum of a spoiler (hint it's about the 2nd ML) and I am intrigued, can't wait for it to be revealed. I tried to watch the previews on iQiyi, the china site, but got geo-blocked and I am hoping the previews will be out soon on some other place - I think all the episodes' previews are already out! And there is a VVIP for 31-40, but I don't know when, fingers crossed I will be pleasantly surprised soon.

 

Hope there are other people watching this soon and joining this thread, so at least I've got someone to talk to about it :getmygrooveon:
