The Oath of Love (2020)

I once read something that goes like this: "Sometimes, the bad things that happen in our lives will put us towards the path where the best things are," and I wonder if this is true for The Oath of Love 余生, 请多指教 which tells an inspirational story about love.

Two people with gifted hands find each other in this 30-episode romance drama based on a novel of the same name by Bo Lin Shi Jiang 柏林石匠. One makes music while the other uses his hands to save lives.Yang Zi plays Lin Zhixiao, an aspiring cellist who is about to graduate when one bad thing leads to another: Her father is diagnosed with cancer so she puts it upon herself to take care of him. This leads to her turning down a job opportunity overseas and of course, caring for an ailing father means no distractions so she and her boyfriend call it quits.

But as many of you drama fans already know, love finds its way when you least expect it. Enter the doctor, Gu Wei, played by Xiao Zhan. He appears to have a cold exterior but he's very much invested in his patients, one of whom is the heroine's father. From what I've seen in the trailer, there will be serendipitous moments of close encounters before the meet cute between them actually take place. Will their love be deep enough to conquer the hardships that they will encounter? 

Joining the two leads are Zhai Zilu, Ma Yujie, Daisy Li Muchen, Li Yunrui, Zhang Yuqi, Zhao Shiyi, Xia Zhiqing and Hao Wenting.

As cute as Go Go Squid! was, I actually stopped watching towards the middle when it started to feel too cringy. In comparison, I appreciate that The Oath of Love has realistic elements to ground the story, so all that's left is to see whether the acting will click or not. It certainly looks promising with both leads still basking in the glory of recent successes. 

Yang Zi, for one, amazes me with her ability to switch from bubbly, cheerful characters to dramatic crying in the next scene, I can see why many fans adore her. Xiao Zhan is so handsome in his uniform that it makes me wish that I was one of his patients. Kidding aside, I think he nails the good doctor vibe and is giving a lot of warm feels with that soft smile of his. This is one drama that seems to be very heavily promoted, can't blame 'em since a lot of people are anticipating this. 

Release Date: 2020 Hunan TV and Tencent

  1. I know the novel and think it is pretty average and boring, so I was worried but after the trailer I really have a good feeling since they made the characters realistic and likeable. I also like that YZ doesn't need to play overly cute again since she is the best when she can act natural.

  2. I agree with you, I stopped watching Go Go Squid early on as it was becoming too cheesy that I cringed even if Li Xian was really appealing.

    1. I just put on 2x speed during the cheesy scenes between ml and fl. The backstory of Han Shangyan's story and the K&K boys are pretty interesting.

  3. I actually first noticed YZ in The Legend of Chusen and i'd liked her with all her 'seriousness' looks and then i started following her in her other dramas and tbh, i find her to be a very good actress but i think whenever she's acting those 'cutesy' roles, she tends to overact. I feel this drama will put me in an emotional state but at only 30 epis. this will definitely not miss me.

  4. Seriously can't wait. I love both of them. And I have seen before that they both can act amazingly if the roles are suited. So I can't wait to see them in the drama since the trailer turned out so nicely.

  5. I like her but her styling is so bad across all of her modern drama works, why?

    1. I think that also. Either her stylists in those dramas are awful or her sense of style is bad.

    2. She doesn't have good proportions. So is always long dresses or pants.

    3. When she gains weight - her legs are big. She needs a stylist who knows how to bring the best out of her.

    1. I'm not her fan either. I don't dislike her and will watch it for him. I haven't watched "The Untamed" yet.
