From Survivor to Healer

From Survivor to Healer 爱上你治愈我 is a 48-episode Chinese drama about two medical students who ended up working in the same hospital after breaking up years ago. The lead stars are Shawn Dou (Ten Years Late) and Vivi Miao Miao (Youth) with a supporting cast that includes Peng Guan Ying (Princess of Lanling King), Wang Si Si (Love is Brave), Jin Shi Jie (The Great Expectations) and Pan Hong (Delicious Destiny).


Synopsis from chinesedrama.info:

While studying medicine, Yan Shu Ren (Shawn Dou) and his junior Shu Shu (ViVi Miao Miao) started dating but their relationship was a difficult one due to circumstances in their families. Shu Ren quits school to avoid Shu Shu while the latter decides to leave for Japan to finish her studies abroad. Five years later, they end up at Si Kang Hospital upon the invitation of their teacher. Shu Ren hopes to mend this relationship with Shu Shu but she is cold and indifferent towards him and only starts warming up to him when her mother was in the hospital for treatment.  However, the nature of their work spells trouble of his own as an accidental discovery causes Shu Ren to doubt his own qualifications as a doctor.

This isn't the first time that Shawn Dou and ViVi Miao Miao will be working together. They were both on Princess Agents last year except she had such a minor role that her character was quite forgettable. It still comes as an interesting coincidence to find Xiao Qi and Yan Xun ending up as a couple. 

I am a little bit turned off by the sub-plot where they are exes that had to work together but I like medical dramas so we'll see. It also feels like we're in for an emotional rollercoaster as our main protagonist seems to be a tortured soul, which from previous projects, Shawn Dou has clearly proven that he has the acting chops to deliver. He has such a bright and sunny image in real life though, I'd wish to see him in a rom-com!

Release Date: TBA

    1. I wish his next modern drama project would be an angst-free rom-com. All of his modern dramas up to now are melos and he even has a sad fate in ancient ones too lol. He stars in another with his Princess Agents co-star Li Qin (Princess Chun'er), and it's another emotional roller coaster between them *sigh*
