Adapted from the novel written by Zhe Zhi Ma Yi, so it’s not a remake of hit Korean TV series, Descendants of the Sun.
Qiyi describes the story:
A romantic army story that tells about how Liang Mu Ze, the most promising major in the G Zone Special Forces, and a foreign medical corps doctor, Xia Chu, met in the line of duty, developed an understanding for each other, fell in love, overcame a terrorist kidnapping, thwarted a criminal syndicate bent on stealing military secrets, and finally wiping out the criminal forces, thus fulfilling their duty as soldiers and protecting their loved ones.
Dear Uniform (亲爱的戎装) is a modern drama adapted from the novel written by Zhe Zhi Ma Yi, so it’s not a remake of hit Korean TV series, Descendants of the Sun. It stars Huang Jing Yu as a military officer describes like an ice mountain and Li Qin plays a gentle military medic. Our male lead doesn’t care about romance or anything else and is basically 100% driven by work. Our female lead has been hurt by love before and she’s the pearl in her parents’ hands (they’re wealthy, and she doesn’t want others to be affected by her status). But she can stand on her own (whew). However, her decision to be a doctor in the military angers her dad and he refuses to acknowledge her for a short period. Mom is the softer one and helps her out with one “last favor” by asking her friend for help on finding a living place. Turns out, the friend lets our heroine move into the house where her son stays when he’s not living in the military dorms. Hehe. The mothers totally planted this seed! How did they meet? She’s showering (in his fancy bathroom!) when she hears the door creaks. And that is their first impression. HEHE. They begin to get close when she has a bad night after bumping into her ex-boyfriend and our hero agrees to be her ears for the night. Soon, she ends up saving one of his comrades, and our male lead begins to look at our gentle, sunny doctor in a new light. Their love story is described as gentle but does not lack sweetness and passion. From reviews, the second male lead is equally if not more complex than our male lead, given his circumstance and situation. Ohhhh. I shouldn’t spoil all the fun right? Ok.
Huang Jing Yu is probably one of the few actors who looks like he can pack a punch in our batch of oh-so-pretty young actors. I’m excited for this collaboration!
Already, the show is out for the hero’s blood using the tried-and-true method of killing off the protagonist’s loved ones and leaving him in a strange and hostile environment. But our underdog is foolishly kind and like attract like. Pretty good for a first episode.
They are definitely going all out to promote this series! Their press conference is impressive! They have limousine lined up and arriving on a red carpet with flashing cameras and a group of excited reporters on the side. The posters hung at the venue indeed have August 2nd imprinted on them so there we have it guys, a date from the production themselves! Moreover, enjoy some live performances of the songs and a long extended trailer. ^__^
I do have a sincere request to throw out there… any volunteers to recap this series for AVV? Please contact me!
Nice!! The song gives me mixed feelings mainly because the beats remind me of the good old days of themesongs back in 2000s, though it hasn’t struck the right spot for me yet. I know many didn’t like Richie Ren‘s performance in The New Adventures of Chor Lau Heung, but I absolutely adored his beautiful love interests in that version. And the themesong sung by him remains in my fond memories and playlist till this day. I just need to replay this song a few more times to really, really, love it.
Is it only me but the closer we come to July, the most anticipation I create for The Legend of Chusen? In the beginning, I was pretty lukewarm with the series, but now I’m counting the days off. Temporary air date has been rumored to be July 17th on HNTV. They released a BTS video a few hours ago with some more stills (of the same cast members, Lol.)
